Picked up a minty Romba earlier today for a good price on eBay, surprisingly. Just missed on Warok.

Also got the Security Scout in the mail today...I love this thing! Sure, it's gimmicky as hell, but I value it for the sheer weirdness.

Got my tan-limb Klaatu variant in the mail today. Not one of my favorites I would have to say, the color differences are a little more subtle than I was expecting. The soft goods portion is significantly different though, both in color and texture/thickness. So that's a plus.

Now $28.00 on

Awesome, if I see it in a store for that price I am buying another one and breaking it out of the box!

Heck, I'm probably going to do that anyway but it's a lot more palatable closer to the regular vehicle price.

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. Seth Green will be thrilled to hear this!

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

"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?)
