The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: CW Clone Turbo Tank
« on: November 19, 2009, 02:24 PM »
I'll just post this here since it was one of the things featured, but I was watching Looney Tunes with our daughter today on Cartoon Network and they had a commercial for the Hasbro CW toys.  It showed Dooku, battle droids, the AATs, the Turbo Tank, the Freeco Bike and other miscellaneous things from what I could see.  Just thought it was neat to see a non-role play Star Wars toy commercial, it has been awhile I think.

Man, thanks so much for posting that! I can't tell you how many times I have been watching the show on Cartoon Network and wondered why they don't run commercials for the toys during it. It seems like such a no-brainer! Great marketing ploy, especially at this time of year.

I think the droid is supposed to be on the outside of the ship, although they couldn't get the perspective right in the package.

I'll have to go home and check for Waxer's guns now..I did not notice one way or the other after initial inspection. Good catch.

Awesome pics! I can't wait to send away for this sucker. I expect the redemption offer will appear on the next Wave (7) of TCW figures...Hondo, Aayla, et al. December-January maybe?

Awesome scores, Pete!

I was able to snag the 2 new Target exclusive BP's out of their back stockroom using the DPCI trick.

Ambush at Abregado and Assault on Ryloth are officially off the list!

I was surprised at the size of these things, I guess I had heard they were changing box dimensions but I didn't know what to expect. They are flatter but taller.

So unless we end up seeing the Hondo Wave sometime in December, I think I am done for the year! Sweet relief!  ;D

Be sure to call first to save yourself the trip (and the frustration).  ;)

Ha ha, not to worry...I was completely successful at scoring these on my first attempt at the local Target on my way home from work. They had 4 tucked away in "Stockroom A" and I was able to Jedi Mind Trick them into bringing me a fresh, shiny, pristine copy of each new BP.

Kudos to all for the suggestions on this, I wouldn't have had any inkling to try at this point otherwise.

Thanks Jeff, I am going to try this at a few locations after work and will report back later tonight.

Picked them both up today by having someone pull them from the back with the DPCI.

How do they know which one(s) to grab? Don't they all have the same #?

I can just see myself trying this and some drone carting back a fistful of Jabba's Palace BP's...ugh.

I did enjoy that 48 hour span when I was OFF the Hunt.  ::)

After giving it some more thought, I believe the super tanks would have been the perfect opportunity to introduce cortosis to the Clone Wars storyline. There's a tangent you could milk for plenty of plotlines.

Also, I'd like to see some references to the Real Geonosian Super Weapon they are currently working on...the Death Star.

Yep, I would also add that Walmart deserves some blame for not actually sticking these in the proper SW section too. Like the Dewbacks and AT-ST, I find these things scattered all over their toy department. Even if you wanted one it is hard to find in some locations. And then again there are some stores with tons sitting on an endcap.

If they drop the price, I'll be tempted to buy another one just to open it.

Interesting tidbit from the latest round of Hasbro Q&A (courtesy of swcollector.com):

"A new cold weather Obi-Wan is coming shortly in The Clone Wars figure line."

I know many had surmised as much, but it's great to see it confirmed in writing. Definitely looking forward to this one... (Wave 9 maybe?)

I was lucky enough to win the elusive Security Scout mini-rig tonight on eBay. That is a tough one to find for whatever reason, but I came across a nice loose one for a decent price. Kind of surprised I won it actually, but extremely pleased.

Now I just need to hunt down that Imperial Sniper and Sand Skimmer and I am good to go.

Hm, if the Octuptarra isn't selling so well, I would say it's due more to the price bump than the toy itself. Everyone I know who has bought one has loved it. Sounds like a one and done...bummer.

I am on record as being 100% in support of the Twilight as the next Big Ship offering. Could not agree more.

Am I really the ONLY one who LOVED the super tanks? To me, these are like gold because we instantly have a new candidate for the next $100 TCW toy. Sign me up right now...I want it.

This is a 4 episode arc, so they'll be on Geonosis for two more eps. Fine with me, best stuff they have done yet IMO.

I didn't feel like it was Anakin's possessiveness so much that they were trying to show as his complete inability to deal with the concept of personal loss. Pretty much his Achilles heel, as we see in ROTS.

Luminara is my favorite Jedi, but I agree that her attitude seemed a little too detached in that situation.

HATE the new time slot, WTF does Cartoon Network have against Joss Whedon? LEAVE IT AT 8PM!
