The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases
« on: February 9, 2010, 09:51 AM »
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!

I'm in Iowa. Kind of weird there were no sightings of this wave on the west coast prior to me finding these. :)

I actually read a few reports of them being spotted at TRU's on the West Coast, I believe prior to the Iowa and MN sightings. But either way, they're hitting pretty haphazardly. I just read reports of these being spotted at Walmarts in Alabama!

I have hit 6/7 Walmarts in Richmond today to no avail.

Just found this wave at my local TRU- picked up Aayla and Hondo. So at least they're now out there in the wild.  :)

Where do you live?

We don't seem to be getting jack-squat on the East Coast.

Not excited by any of these.

Me either. It amazes me how they utterly fail to capture the likeness of the characters from the films. None of those 4 looks anything like the actors in question.

Articulation and detail are great, but give me a well-sculpted face and proportionally accurate body parts. Not Popeye arms like that crappy Veers.

Not finding these dirty bastages ANYWHERE...seven Walmarts in this town and none of them have re-stocked since X-Mas.  >:(

Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition
« on: January 29, 2010, 09:49 AM »
No new purchases this week, but I did finally receive my vintage Ackbar variants in the mail from the UK. Postmark date was 12/23...WTF?

They're great...I've got a nice little gang of five now, each with unique paint apps. The 4 new addition are all from Taiwan.

Also got my replacement carboard backdrop for the Cantina playset...looks awesome, a steal for $10.

Still waiting on Warok, Carbonite Han, Univisor Snowtrooper Variant, and my battle damaged TIE.  ;D
