Where was an AT-AT for $12 at? 

Target, according to the reports I have read.

I think they just missed THE PERFECT solution for writing her out of the story for good while not traumatizing the kids.

It's so simple, it's pure genius:

She should have elected to stay on Mortis to take the place of the Daughter.

I literally got up and shouted it while watching last week's episode, it became so apparent. She serves a greater purpose, they don't have to kill her off, and they have a perfectly satisfactory explanation for why she is not only unseen but never even mentioned in ROTS.

Of course, they would never go for this because it would mean taking her off the show for the rest of the run, which I could easily stand, but they do have the perfect out here.

Well, they have already said there will not be a Clone Wars Mail-In offer for this year, so that's what I really wanted. (Ziro!)

I also think the Boba Fett packaging criticism was completely deserved. As a brand, Hasbro is reponsible for anything and everything related to their internal promotions. They get final say over design, packaging, everything. They did not have that issue with previous mail-away promotions, and it seems apparent they tried to skate by with a cheaper, less reliable alternative and got burned. (They had to know what would happen when these things hit the mass media mail sorters)

I do give them props for correcting the issue.

I am hoping we don't see this ship "transform" on the show in order to give the toy more "credibility"

Funny, I was just thinking the exact opposite. This would be easier to stomach if the damn thing actually did any of that stuff in the show.

As it is now, it just seems kind of like a cheesy reach.

Some more rumor re-hash from JTA:

•Saesee Tiin
•Savage Opress
•Plo Koon (Deluxe Repack/Repaint)
•Kit Fisto (Cold Weather Gear)
•Seripas (Bounty Hunter)
•Stealth Clone Trooper
•Captain Rex (With Jet Pack)

Pretty much all of these have been previously reported, although we got a few more details on Plo and Kit. I think that makes the third figure for each of those guys in this line. Wish they would focus on getting figures made of ALL the major characters before double and triple dipping like this, but whateves.

September 2011?!?! :o

That better be the "Nuremberg Release Date"...



RIP, Tura Satana - a true original. When they made her, they broke the mold. Star of one of the greatest B-movies in American cinematic history.

For you Star Wars nerds, Varla's epic admonition "I never try anything. I just do it." predates Nike and Yoda by at least a decade.  ;D

I agree completely Doc, the SL line is just a useless anachronism now. I can't imagine anyone would shed tears over its extinction.

Sam "Starkiller" Witwer was the voice of The Son?

I did not know that. Will be curious to listen more closely tonight.

I don't want to see any animated figures in that crap line. They already carry forward too many old TCW figures in the new animated case assortments. I don't think anyone is in a hurry to see more Space Helmet Anakins clogging the pegs.

That makes no sense. The Sandtrooper data was based on the actual cardback photos and numbering. I know those aren't always 100% accurate, like with the Cad Bane in Clone disguise figure, but it would still seem pretty solid. Hasbro must really be doing a lot of last minute shuffling with that line right now.

If true though, it's still a strong wave and Barriss should be outstanding.

Nice score!  How much are they charging for him?

I paid $8.99...I figure it's probably more or less the same around the country. I'm glad I passed picking this up loose on eBay now.

Bad news for CAPE fans...NBC reduced its initial order from 13 to 10 episodes, on the heels of its worst ratings yet.

Next to the dreaded "vote of confidence" by ownership this is the closest thing to a Kiss of Death.

I'll miss it a little. But if it helps bring back The Event sooner, that will ease the pain.

Summer Glau's TV track record remains intact.

I was pretty moved by Charlie's death but Claire 2 minutes after it happened didn't seem to be...bad acting and/or plotting on that one

That always bugged me, too. She got/gets over it way too quickly.

She was already coming down with The Sickness at that point, you just didn't know it yet. I give her a pass for being so smoking hot.  ;D

A pleasant surprise to see Dutch from The Shield turn up in a recurring guest role on V last night. He's a fine actor but without exception always plays a weaseley ******bag character. (Shield, Sons of Anarchy, CSI, you name it)

Always a plus to see that dude from The Mummy too...he is the mark of quality.
