The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases
« on: October 2, 2010, 02:58 PM »
Picked up another set of TCW Wave 3 just to insure I have 3 decent cards for the collection, with the rest to be returned.

There are some pretty minor but notable paint variations, particularly on Ki-Adi. Some have a tad more eyeball paint and thus have a "surpised" look while I saw another that has a narrower gaze that comes across as a little more stern. I've seen 1 or 2 that appear to have a pretty dirty dome too. Literally.

That Flamethrower Clone is my favorite of the wave homerun.

Thanks that makes sense, esp the bit about CV and needing a head start. Might even be a good thing as the promotion may end up lasting longer. Or rather, the supply may. I wouldn't mind having two, but I won't have enough UPC's for another until 2 more waves from now. (Considering I open very few figures, several good ones coming up though)

Oh and a vinyl cape jawa, the various DT figures, and orange hair Luke.  ;D

Well, I came close on vinyl cape Jawa last night. Final bid price was $305...should have hung in there. My max bid was about $30 less, although who knows what it would have taken to actually beat out the top bid.

One day.

Wondering when these will start to ship...seems like it is lagging significantly behind the Fetts, although they both started at the exact same time.

Anyone heard or read of these arriving yet?

Last time I checked, I did not even see any up on eBay...curious.

Finally sent off for this today...hope I get one before they run out. And a decent card would be nice to boot.

On a related note, I now have 4 TVC figs sans UPC's but otherwise unmolested if anyone is interested. (Not likely I know)

got an email today from TRU with a coupon for 20% of any regular priced item good for today and tomorrow.

Is that generated from being a Rewards Club member?

I use my card all the time, but I've yet to get any really good coupons like this. I'd use that too.

IDK if this was posted but Kmart has a coupon for $5 off a toy purchase of ONLY $5! You can get a TVC fig for only $4 and change. I got Han today. I almost boguht SW "Beanz" for $5.99 before discount. Unfortunately tomorrow is the last day. :-\ I only heard about this today. :-[

Thanks to this, I was able to score another MOC Jodo tonight for $3.99.

Gotta love that!

I liked his deco in the series, but Hasbro's putting out a whole lot of the same in the deluxe veh/figure line so I think they should try to tread cautiously with that stuff.  The kiddies can only get so many before mommy/daddy say no.

Yeah, but come on...they named a Clone Trooper after YOU!  ;D You know you need 3 of these at least!

This WAS totally out of the blue. I agree it looks very similar to at least 2-3 other sets, but at least it's not a straight repack. I'm definitely down for one.

I'm just wondering what happened to the AT-RT with Boil. This was supposed to be part of Wave 3 too, but is now conspicuously absent from the BBTS listings.

McMetal...did you pick it up at retail?

Yes, I found it at TRU last week along with the ARC Troopers BP. They only had 1 of each on the shelves. I have not heard about this hitting anyplace else yet, but I'm sure it will eventually.

Big whoop. Those prequel movies suck in 2D, 3D, even in four or more dimensions. Their suckitude defies all known laws of physics.

And I'm sorry, but 3D tech is still woefully crude; who wants to wear glasses over glasses?

I was hoping they would have at least started with the OT.

Papinoida sounds like some kind of genital wart.

Good to see Seth Green make another appearance. And Meredith Salenger is always on time.  ;D

I have one of every individually carded figure they have made. 

Really? Where do you store them? That seems like it would take up an enormous amount of space.

I've often wondered if there were any collectors out there who literally bought EVERYTHING in the 3&3/4" line. I mean a straight-up, 100% completist, including all variants, re-packs, etc.

I bet no one at Habsro can even make that claim.

Does look cool...looking forward to seeing some pics of that other set too, since IG-88 is all new.

IG-86 is a repaint I believe, nothing "new" there.

In the same sense that Ziro's Assassin droid was a repaint of the previous version? Or is this more of a straight re-pack?

I'm cool if the paint apps are unique, that's "new" enough for me.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: TRU Exclusive Nikto Guard?
« on: September 28, 2010, 12:13 PM »
Aw yeah, snagged my Nikto Guard today, courtest of the neighborhood TRU. Looked like they had about 5-6 on the pegs at least.

I found it interesting the cards all had a reinforced J-hook. Wish all the figs featured that, but I guess that's the kind of premium packaging you can only get for $10.99.  ::)

He DOES have a tiny head too. Must look better with the cowl.

Wait, so neither guy actually has a face? Well, that's one way to keep the sculpting costs down.

Does look cool...looking forward to seeing some pics of that other set too, since IG-88 is all new.

Great pics, mods!
