The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases

Yep, the K-Mart buzz got me motivated too...I drove across town last night and scored all the new Deluxe sets for around $53. (Ouch, BTW) Great to have these, all in very good condition packaging-wise too.

No sign of Jodo Kast yet, but apparently he has been spotted already out of state, so the Hunt continues.

Nothing new whatsoever at TRU. Kinda weird they are not trying to capitalize on their corner of the market by restocking the TVC stuff around here, they kidn of shat their wad and that was it.  :-\

and no sign of Kul Teska or the AT-AT either.

Nice...I caught that earlier today too. Funny that it doesn't specify it as Clone Wars but then again neither does the Kit Fisto placard.

The new JTA gallery is up now too and has some great shots.

Bump for SDCC.

Did anyone else see the Aayla Secura figure on display at Comic-Con?  I could SWEAR they have revised her facial paint apps in some way. I never liked the eyes on the ones I bought, but the new re-release version they showed looked really good. It's subtle, but very noticeable to me as I am really keen on this figure.

Guess I'll have to compare side-by-side to be sure.

Thanks Jayson, I was thinking AT-AP but couldn't quite remember. I still have the Target exclusive TCW version from a few years back, man that was hard to find.

I guess this would be in the $24.99 starfighter type price range?

Sigh...I feel like a kid after unwrapping a hundred presents on X-Mas morning - "is that all?"  :-[

Maybe I'm just paying more attention this year, but I didn't feel nearly the level of excitement after seeing this year's displays. I mean, no real surprises at all.

I think literally the only thing I saw that was a complete surprise was that Camo AT-RT with Boil for the TCW line. Everything else had already been spoiled, either through advance pics or product listings.

Hopefully they are holding some good stuff back for CV, but I kinda doubt it since the Slave I is obviously going to be a focal point there and that is old news.

Would like to have seen any of the figures from TCW Waves 5 or 6, the HMP, Xanadu Blood, etc. Those last 2 seem to have really fallen off the map for some reason.

Isn't there still the big slide show yet to come? I guess we'll get more sneak peeks then.

Good stuff, just not feeling the off-the-wall hype like last year.

So...very interesting to see Mr Kast displayed prominently with all the TCW exclusives. I know he's not technically part of the line but the packaging and proximity of the display to the other TCW stuff is all the convincing I need. I'm in.  ;D

Wasn't sure where else to stick this, so here goes.

I have seen a couple of pictures of a new SW Vehicle I have never heard of or seen before. I am hoping someone can help identify what this is and what line it will be released under:

Props to GH for the awesome photo, BTW. It looks like a hybrid of an AT-TE and AT-RT. Very cool. It appears to be in the general vehicle section though, with no packaging display, so not sure where/when this would be coming out.

Thanks in advance for any info!

GH had some good shots up of this pack this morning. It looks totally sweet. The Paint Apps on the Red Dude alone are killer. (Sorry, no idea on which colors equate to ranks)

Love the jibba jabba...good points all around.

I'm not a fan of RC stuff at all, but scaling this to the 3.75" line and throwing in a Clone Trooper makes it a mandatory purchase as per the Completist Rulebook Section 23.  ;D

Still cannot figure out if the Clone Trooper is strictly a re-pack of something previously released. He looks a little different somehow...

Thanks a lot, I am psyched to see this as well. It was just in the corner of one of the RS pics, but I could not quite make out the details. Looking forward to some better angles tomorrow...

That Pre-Cyborg Grievous is not recall that one. Thanks for the head's up!

Thanks, I figured I had it all mixed up in my head. Some of those EPs kinda blur together after awhile...

I still don't get why we're getting 1 less figure and we're paying $4 more in these sets, but I'm sure McMetal and others are happy.   :)

Yeah, I'm digging it. The whole price/value thing does not really play into it for me, but I agree it'd be nice to have more for the $$$.

Were there any pics of the ARC Troopers set that is reportedly part of this BP wave?

I don't even remember Commando Droids from that episode. What about Todo 360? Would have been a perfect home for him.
