The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Wave 18 (aka Fall 2010 Wave 4)

If you order over $50 of stuff do it - then shipping is free.  If not wait.   :)

thats what would be the deciding factor for me at least.

Yeah, even with tax, etc it still comes to less than $50 for the 5 new figures in this wave.  :(

For me it's all about the timing. I want these things ASAP so I can stop frequenting Walmart, Target, etc. It's starting to get crazy in those places. If those are really not shipping from hasbro until 12/6 that is too late because I am sure I can find them before then at a brick and mortar.

I read this morning on JTA that the Embo wave has now been spotted at a Walmart in GA, so that is VERY encouraging. I guess it is back to saturation runs every day until I crush this wave. I need at least 2 Embos and Shaak Ti's alone!

Good point Tracy, I had thought that too, would kinda make sense in light of the conversation Rick and Shane had in their patrol car at the beginning of Ep 1. But in a way that's even worse, because that conversation clearly portrays him as somewhat of a dick (Shane that is). Plus then it's just straight out adultery, not even framed by the whole "end of world my husband's in a coma" type rationalizations.

More to the point though, it IS distracting and hits a false note somehow.

Well hopefully it all goes away after tonight since it looks like they'll finally reunite.

Bring on The Governor!

Back in stock now at HTS, except for the Mandalorian Warrior.

Still torn whether to bite the bullet and order these...projected shipping is not until 12/06 according to Hasbro's website. I am positive I could find these before then, but then again that date could be completely false. Maybe they would ship tomorrow.

ugh, decisions decisions...

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2010 "Vintage" Collection Wave 3 - ROTJ

I came across this Wave at 3 different Targets as well as a K-Mart, of all places. The cheap Target prices can't be beat though. I only bought the 4 I was interested in - Wooof, Wicket, Ackbar and Gammorean Guard.

Initial thoughts:

You gotta be choosy with the Wooofs, there are some funky looking ones where the helmet/cowl/whatever doesn't fit right. I'm sure it's fine if you open it and jimmy it around, but I had to go through a couple before finding a good MOC version.

The Wicket is pretty underwhelming, it just seems like not much there, especially compared to the Gammorean, which is about the heaviest figure I have ever seen on a cardback. What a sweet sculpt that is, a great achievement.

Ackbar is just plain terrific. I love the facial detailing and all-around effort they put into this one. Winner of the bunch, IMO. But then I loves some Mon Calamari.

Went on a megahunt today and found the ROTJ wave at multiple Targets, as well as, brace yourself, K-Mart! (The price difference right now is no contest though) Scored Wooof, Ackbar, Wicket, and Gammorean Guard. Complete awesomeness!

I'll detail my thoughts in the other thread, but suffice to say if I had this much luck they're probably hitting all over by now. Great, great wave.

Best day of scores in a long time, and I only had to hit 7 Targets, 4 Walmarts, 2 TRU's and a K-Mart.  ;D

I found the new wave of deluxe TCW vehicles at multiple Targets, and in addition to scoring the 2 I had snagged earlier at TRU (for return purposes), I was able to secure the AT-RT with Boil set. MAN, this is my favorite so far I think. Just love the deco.

Also scored the Battle of Orto Plutonia Battlepack at TRU, another welcome surprise.

Sadly, zero sightings of the Embo wave. That sucks, especially after running into the new Vintage wave multiple times out there. Still, a very good day all in all.

I found one this morning at TRU...all re-pack swag, but I really like the diorama. Anyway, I had to get it regardless as a completist freak.

I read this is out now at TRU...anyone spot one in the wild yet?

Sorry, to clarify, I think it's going to just be 4 repacked figures, similar to the ones K-Mart has had as exclusives in the past. It doesn't sound like there are any cool accessories or pack-ins, but maybe something will be new. I hope anyway.

Looks like they are also going to re-release the Jedi Showdown and Rishi Moon BP's. Ugh, they are doing a lot of recycling with the BP's this year.

Hmmm, smells like one of those crappy K-Mart exclusive BP's...4 repacks of figures already out on individual cards.

Will be interested to hear confirmation about this though.

Saw Overkill last night with Forbidden, pretty crushing. The boys can still bring it.

Just saw this was already picked up for a second season, which is surprising and great. I figured it would just be a one-and-done miniseries.

Mikey - I've been trying to catch up with the comic storylines - have you read them all?

I have questions but I guess I can't post them without providing inadvertant spoilers.

I just like that it's an actual sequel and not a "re-imagining" AKA rip-off.

And it's ALWAYS good to see Bruce "The ORIGINAL StarKiller" Beefcakener getting some work again. (That's a B5 reference for those of you unfamiliar with the best sci-fi series ever on TV :) )

Very cool, but I'm not driving all the way to D.C. just for a 10 minute sneak peek, or whatever it likely will be.

Hope they tread carefully with any backstory, sometimes it's cooler the LESS you know about a character. (ahem, Boba Fett)
