Uncle Gundy and his minty card have now officially joined my DROIDS posse. All hail!

Dude gets his own thread? Dayum, let the hype commence!

I can only see the tiny image on the front page here, since Sandtroopers does not want me to see their site while I am at work, damn them. But from first glance it looks freaking awesome.

I was not a huge fan of how he turned out on the show either, but the figure looks like a winner.

haven't these already been on Blu Ray for years?

Or were they that old HD format?

I know I have seen them at someone's house in hi-definition.

Who got axed? How did they decide who made the cut and who didn't? I'm really curious to hear more about this.

Picked up a MISB Side Gunner over the weekend, looks cherry.

Are those wall-mounted? Looks excellent, this is exactly the kind of thing I would be looking to install in the new house, except not in the wood grain finish.

I just wish the nearest IKEA wasn't halfway to DC.

Caps look like the cream of the East.  ;D

My top priorities would be to see them re-issue all of the former "realistic style" Clone Wars midsize vehicles that have not yet been produced in the new animated style.

Aayla Secura's Starfighter
Dooku's Solar Sailer
Geonosian Starfighter
etc, etc

They all have traction in the current entertainment product, so it seems like easy money IMO.

Whew, good thing they are doing away with these unpopular Clone Wars mailaway promotions.  ::)

Apropos of nothing, if the Kiss classic "God of Thunder" is not on the soundtrack to this film, there should be an official investigation by the Justice Department.

How can you have a movie about Thor and not roll that out during the closing credits? I don't see a way.

I have followed this whole unfolding saga with some amusement, myself. She seems to have a pretty good attitude about it, good for her. It's some of the other posters/mods freaking out about it.

I guess you almost have to expect stuff like that, given that it's the internet, and it's that site. Frankly, I don't think you would see that at most of the other fan sites, because they tend to be more close-knit communities with more self-policing, and well, generally more cool people.

For whatever reason, RS just seems like a prick-magnet. I've been spending more time over there the past few months because they're the only site generating any quality store reports anymore, but it always feels like cyber-slumming.

When is Hasbro putting Savage on a basic figure card? ??? To be honest, I'm surprised we're getting Chewbacca before Savage! Maybe he'll be in some sort of exclusive?

If previous rumorings were true, Oppress should be out in the wave following the Barriss Offee/Eeth Koth wave. (CW 54)

Would hope to see that wave before SDCC.

Awesome snag on the sand skimmer! That's a great price!

Oh Yes!

It's going to be really hard to pick only 10 this year. All of these would be in the current 3D style:

1) Duchess Satine
2) Sugi
3) Mother Talzin
4) Chancellor Palpatine
5) Osi Sobeck
6) Ziro the Hutt
7) Qui-Gon Jinn
8) Chewbacca
9) The Son
10) The Daughter

That's right, Hasbro 4 of my Top 10 are GIRLZ! Suck on that!

Honorable mentions go to: Commander Jet and Cad Bane in Clone Disguise..WTF ARE these figures, anyway?
