Arrgh hasbro, just when I had convinced myself not to buy that whole set for the bane figure they up the ante by adding the arm panel...I am guessing I will have a while to decide though.

Yeah, that was an unexpected but really cool feature they added with the breakaway armor and wound. I wonder if this was partly the reason for the delay/fail on the single carded version originally intended.

You might be able to score a loose one off eBay for less than the price of the whole pack.

Looks more like Flargin, Dingle and Merle.  :D

I'm actually on board with this. Outside of that dreadful Boston Legal show, I've enjoyed Spader's body of work to this point. And he was definitely the most interesting of the characters they rotated through for the finale.

Although Will Arnett would have been great too if he could have channeled a little more of his Todd Margaret character. That **** was brilliant.

I am just as surprised at collectors who were not blown away by the chance to get their own rocket firing Vintage Boba Fett last year. To each his own, I guess.

Thanks for the feedback on this thing, Jack, you make some good points.

I appreciate the photos as well, the scale of this thing was somewhat deceptive.

Has this hit any of the online sellers yet do we know?

Wow, I actually purchased some new Clone Wars toys today, seems like forever. TRU had a fresh case of the 4 new Deluxe Figure and Vehicle Sets, or whatever they are calling them now. ($17.99 apiece)

I actually had to hit up 2 different TRU's to snag all 4 though, another collector beat me to the Grievous and Castas sets at the first store. And I got to the store 3 minutes after it opened. Crazy, this was the most competition I had seen for SW toys in quite awhile. There were actually a few guys milling around, which is highly unusual.

I had my pick of everything at the other store though. So $85 later I got all 4 new deluxe sets plus my highly desired Captain Fordo to boot.

Game, set, match!

I scored all 4 of the new Deluxe sets this morning at TRU.  :o

Castas and the ARF Trooper set are easily the coolest of the lot, although that Grievous wheelbike looks pretty sweet too. The Battle Droid set does not do much for me, but it's ok.

They rang up at $17.99 each, which isn't horrible considering it's only a buck more than Target will be charging. (I agree not the value it used to be, but whateves)

They were also located apart from the other Deluxe sets in their own little niche, in case anyone goes out hunting today.

I guess the Obi-Wan and Boba sets will show up as Wave 2, maybe with that mini-Y wing.

SO happy to be able to post in this thread again...I gots my Minty Carded Fordo!  :D

Both of the local TRU's got a fresh case in, but the first one I visited only had Logray and Vom left. (I got there literally 3 minutes after they opened) So I had to hot foot it across town to the other TRU and had my pick of the case. So I got my Fordo, although I am still seeking a 2nd for opening.

There were like 3-4 other SW collectors at the first store, utterly shocking. We rarely cross paths around here, so it seems like the Hasbro drought is bringing more of us animals to the local watering holes.

Good hunting!

It just better not be another repaint of the Republic Gunship, with a Bantha skull on the nose or something weak like that. Ugh.

Just as long as it's a brand new sculpt, I welcome it.

Because the SW line is completely stillborn right now, I am getting more interested in vintage toys from my youth.

A couple of standouts I had forgotten about include Pulsar, the transparent man and most of the Fighting Furies line, particularly Peg-Leg and Hook.

There's a healthy selection of Shogun Warrior stuff too, though I really only want the 3 megasized ones based on the comic.

Nostalgia is powerfully addictive.

I read that review too and unfortunately I am one of the people mentioned who would buy this and then leave it boxed in its pristine state on display. So yah, does not do much to pump my tires. I would just as soon they retire this RC idea altogether and get back to making non-functional toys that I can never find in stores.  ;D

Is that the Clone Tank Gunner they have manning it?

Pretty cool, nice that they added the tank feature, because this has the potential to be a little boring.

Nothing else new pictured on the back photos, so it must be this and then the Mando Gunship as far as midsize stuff goes for 2011.

Ok, so technically it's not a "figure rumor" but EE has a new pre-listing up for a Mandalorian Gunship.  :o

No pictures or description, but based on my recollection this could be 1 of 2 different Mando ships. Either would be pretty cool as they are both interesting designs.

Hope to see more at SDCC!

Saw some Thor figures with the helmet today.  No sign of figures like the Destroyer or the Warriors Three, but they were shown on the cardback of the new Thors I spotted.

Which store???

WOW, Delta Squad FTW!
