The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Wave 12 (aka 2010 Wave 2)
« on: February 11, 2010, 09:37 AM »
I found remnants of this wave last night at Walmart. I picked up Thi-Sen, Snow Ops Anakin, and the Tactical Droid. No sign of Stone or Sidious and I scoured every square inch of that aisle.  >:(

I kinda like that though. Now I have something else to obsess over til I complete the wave. Plan on hitting every other Walmart locally today/tonight to close these guys out.

But seriously, who would pass on the Talz? He is completely awesome!

Ah, well that's fair, then. I think we all dream of finding the yokel with the treasure chest of toys who has no idea the worth of what he's got....

Yeah, it's way more common to find the opposite...d-bags who think they're going to fund their own retirement plan by dropping a few crappy vintage figs on ebay at exorbitant prices. (ahem...Brian's Toys)

Good work, Blue Snags is coming upon my radar soon.

Wow, I did not think we could go below the Crucible Power Rangers figs, but there you have it.

Thank you, for a second I thought I was the only one who found this to be incredibly lame...

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases
« on: February 9, 2010, 12:49 PM »
Hmm, blessed by the Toy Gods once again.

I found the whole new TCW Wave of Deluxe Vehicle/Fig packs at TRU this morning, fresh off the truck. Again, only 1 of each and no new figure re-stocks. Odd. Of course I bought them all immediately and they are AWESOME. Cody looks a little sloppy, but the AT-RT is freaking magnificent. Even the Sport Skiff is kinda cool, since I have no recollection of the original.


TRU has also dropped their basic figure prices to $6.99. And they're now stocking the BOGO packs ala Target and Walmart.

Picked up a Cold Weather Anakin this evening - the only new figure left from that case. Card was beaten up so I opened him up just now.

Nice figure, looks like the head is a bit too small, but otherwise it's pretty nice.

I really can't wait to get my hands on the Sidious and Talz figures from this wave, they look great.

Pete - awesome score! What store did you find him at? I haven't heard much about Wave 2 hitting any retail outlets yet...

Thanks anyway. I gather it is a Felucian, my questions is what exactly is a Felucian? A big bundle of sticks? That's what that figure looks like.

Sorry, I am severely EU impaired. (Yes, on purpose)

What is that thing supposed to be? A flower? Some kind of weird thorny plant?

I could name half a dozen great candidates for this price point, including the Twilight, Separatist Super Tank, and the Republic Shuttle...there is no lack of ideas. The marketing weasels probably just don't think they can sell enough because of their spectacularly ill-conceived launching of the Shadow Arc.

I do think we'll see another Gunship repaint as well as a Y-Wing, with the red deco from the Point Rain arc.

I was shocked to find this Wave on the pegs at Target last night! First confirmed sighting at thr Big T as far as I am aware. Good to know they are relevant again.

Unfortunately they did not have the Wave 2 (Thi-Sen) nor any of the new Deluxe Vehicle/Fig packs.   :(

I think there are collectors and then there are Collectors.

Some folks will just buy figures they like, or that they feel are priced affordably. They'll pick and choose and participate based on whatever relative interest they have in the line at that time. Seems like most people fall under this category.

Then you have the Collectors. (Big C) These are the folks who buy EVERYTHING, regardless of price point, articulation, character selection, etc. Just make it and put it on the shelves. As soon as possible!

I don't think Hasbro has to worry much about losing that second segment, but they are sure in jeopardy of losing that first contingent if they keep screwing with the lines they way they have been recently.

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: Legacy Collection Comic Packs
« on: February 4, 2010, 10:34 AM »
Ok, so has anyone actually READ the frigging comic that is supposedly so controversial? Please explain to the rest of us what is so damn objectionable. It's Star Wars, so there can't possibly be any sex.

My curiosity is BURNING.

Ouch! How does Hasbro's ass taste, Legacy Fan? 

What a slap in the face, or kick to the crotch if you prefer. They really stuck it in and broke it off with that move.

I have NEVER seen a Legacy figure from the TPM Wave or beyond at any local TRU here. So I weep for the fans looking for them around here.

On the bright side, it's only 3 months now til May. That's the same lag between waves we saw between the most recent TCW waves (Padme-->Aayla). It's not SO terrible.  ;D

McMetal, if you have the means, can you do some side by side comparisson shots of the CW Ayala with an ROTS one?

Would love to but I don't have the ROTS version - sorry!

I looked back at previous posts and it was almost 3 months to the day since the last wave hit. Happy to be off the wagon again. :)

Yeah, Jek and/or Bly may be a repack, but I don't have individually carded versions, so I'm good with those.

Good hunting in your area guys! Looks like we are into a TCW groove right now...

Sweet success! I found this wave today at TRU...had to hit 2 to complete the wave, but well worth the miles. No sign of Wave 2, but I'm more than satisified with what i got. Aayla and Hondo are home runs for sure.

Woot!
