Ugh, busy fortnight, picked up a carded Dulok Scout, as well as a carded Thall Joben and a carded Jord Dusat.

I love these crazy animated figures.

They're part of the same line, nothing changing.  Prices could go up or down I suppose of course, but they're just future waves of the Deluxe Fig w/Vehicle line is all.

Yep, future waves...the first of which was supposed to have been out last month.  ???

Considering Jesse was about 4 months late to the party, I figure we may see that next wave with Castas, Boba and Grievous sometime around SDCC.

Pete - glad you found your Jesses! I may have an extra if you need it, I am up to 3 now but I had to put one up for auction to try and mitigate the price raping I was forced to endure. Don't think I want any openers either...

I picked up another Jesse at Walmart today too, Jesse.  :D

Ugh, another 7.4 Magnitude quake off the coast of Miyagi this morning. What an ordeal for those poor folks.

I don't think anything over 7.0 should really be considered an "aftershock". Freaking buildings were shaking for over a minute in Tokyo.

I love the flame war this jerk has started with Damon Lindelof.

Picked up a minty-boxed Tri-Fighter at Target over lunch to replace my slightly dinged one from HTS.

I came across the Droid Gunship at a different store but the box was even worse than the one I already have.


Some great figures in there to be sure, but that numbering seems sketchy. I mean, how far off are they going to push Savage Oppress? Not to mention Aayla, Hondo, Commander Jet, etc.

Seems like those waves would put us well beyond SDCC. And the Oppress arc was way before the Citadel.

Good stuff though...

I thought they ended on a great high note. The episodes never felt dull or tedious and there was a genuine sense of pathos.

I thought Chewie came off fine. You can't go wrong using Peter Mayhew really. Ahsoka continues to grow and impress. What happened to her lightsabers though? Did she drop them on Felucia or did the Trannies get them? Would have been nice if she could have recovered them from the wreckage.

The finales are usually good toy fodder episodes and these should be no different:

The Hover Pod is a no-brainer, I just wonder if they would do it proper in the midsize vehicle line or try to squeeze it down to the Deluxe assortment. I'm guessing the former. Pretty sweet with the big gun and the hand-painted deco.

Trandoshan Battle Pack - Dar, The Main Dude, and maybe 1-2 other nameless thugs with big guns. Oh yes.

Wookie Battlepack - Just because they can. Chewie repack and some repainted commando wookies. Check.

Sugi, yes Sugi. That was her giving the Wookies a lift, and this was at least her 3rd episode so far. You gotta give us some Sugi, Hasbro!

Bounty Hunter Assault Ship - Also the 2nd or 3rd appearance now. Aside from the Jedi T-6 shuttle, there's not a lot of other good candidates for vehicles in the line right now. This is a great one. It's been done by Lego already too. I'd rather see it in the Deluxe ship assortment, done right with some heft and scale, but that would probably push it out to next year if at all.

Agreed it was an uneven season, but there were some great episodes in there and I for one loved the Mortis arc for trying something different and "out there". The scenes from next season looked pretty awesome too - underwater Mon Calamari battles!

As if to prove my own point, I found the BARC w/Clone Trooper Jesse Deluxe Set tonight at Target. Of course I had to buy it....felt very gratifying to finally hunt this down.

No sign of the Gunship or Tri-Fighter though.

Sure feels good to be more or less caught up with everything again.

Got that SOB!

Found Jesse tonight at Target, not the mintiest box in the world, but who cares. What a great feeling it was to finally lay eyes on him on a peg. It almost felt like some weird mirage.

The speeder is no big whoop but I kind of like the combination of previous clone sculpts they amalgamated into Jesse.

Wonder when we will see Castas, et al?

F'in ay!

It was like my dream episode...Pam and Cheryl uber alles!

Glad to have caught the re-airing of last week's as well, pure comedy gold.

This show is on freaking fire this season!

LOL...RS has their annual April Fool's Joke up and it's a cruel one. Holiday Special on Blu-Ray indeed!

Harumph...I would buy that in a heartbeat.

For what it's worth, I have seen reports this vehicle is finally starting to show up stateside, at Target I believe. I have not seen any around here but will keep an eye out as I still need a mintier box upgrade.

That is wise just never know how these things will turn out long turn. I never saw the Jedi Showdown or Holocron Heist BP's anywhere in stores around here last year. All of a sudden I have seen droves of them at the local TRU the past few months. None of the old red/white stuff should even be shipping, but there ya go.

Never going the scalping route again - lesson learned.
