I'm watching the replay tonight FOR SURE. Too much action to absorb all in one sitting!

Is it just me or does one of those seem oddly out of place?

I like the comedic value of the Sith Reunion, but it doesn't really seem to fit in with the rest of the selections. (IE: not a recreated scene from one of the films)

I had to vote for Bespin Carbon Freeze. Thos pics are like looking at still shots right from the movie. The attention to detail is amazing, especially the lighting. Hoth Hangar was a close second.

I don't know if anyone's done the math or not yet... but in the last 5 or 6 weeks I've bought:

Target Geonosis 2-packs:  10 Figures
Episode I wave:  7 figures (including B.A.D.)
Episode VI wave:  10 figures (including B.A.D.)
Episode IV wave:  10 figures (including B.A.D.)
Episode III wave:  7 figures (including B.A.D.)
Second Ugnaught
5 Comic Packs (still missing one):  10 figures
Gunship Battlepack:  2 figures
Re-released Mynock Han and Chewie
Wedge X-Wing:  2 Figures

That adds up to 61 figures in about 6 weeks.  It's a year's worth of stuff in under two months.

Which is out of control.

Don't forget the TIE Interceptor, AT-ST and Dewback which are out now too! It's crazy!

I could post a list of the new TCW stuff I have found in the same time span, but it would be a lot shorter.  ;D

You can get the AT-TE at TRU's Holiday Express stores for $50 right now.  No shipping involved.  I knew that the $15 price tag was WAY too good to be true.

Does anyone know where I can find a list of TRU Express locations? It's nowhere to be found on their website that I can see.

I initially assumed they would be found in any mall locations formerly occupied by KayBee or KB or whatever that old toy store was that they absorbed, but this is not the case here in Richmond.

Bespin Leia with Turtleneck is now off the list, picked her up tonight. (so to speak)

Slowly the list is shrinking.

Where'd you find Ziro's Assassin droid? Was it a Walmart, Target, or TRU?

I'm searching hard for this wave but no luck ANYWHERE so far...

Limit 10 per customer. (no lie!)

I don't even need another one but would buy it for that price just for the heck of it. That's amazing!

I honestly have no idea at this point. When I hold my Ug up to the one I got recently, the aprons appear to be nearly identical. (Nowhere near like the picture you posted) The Seller SWEARS he sent me the Blue version, but it does not seem to match the photo from his auction. On the other hand, he has been very responsive and seemingly willing to help, so I don't think it's an outright scam either. I guess I'm going to just have to keep buying these until I can find one that actually looks blue to me.

I just know I'm going to have the same problem with the Klaatu variant. (Grey limbs? Tan limbs? Ugh...)

Yeah, the two I have are practically identical, nowhere near as differentiated as in the pic above. I think I can return it minus the shipping, which is better than nothing, I guess. I already have a bid out on another Blue Uggie from a different seller that again, has a photo which looks very blue to me. Let's hope it's not just my monitor again.  ::)

Landing at Point Rain: wow.

That's all I got to say right now. 

Dude, second that.

But I got plenty more to say.  ;D


And simply the best, over the top battle sequences ever depicted in an animated program that I can ever remember. I had read beforehand how they wanted to capture that Battle of Omaha Beach feel and man they nailed it. Utter carnage!

SO MUCH outstanding detail...from the wise-ass crack about how the bugs couldn't shoot straight right before the gunship exploded to the Clone Trooper gunning down the still flaming Geonosian warrior on that rocky precipice.

It just absolutely does not get any better than this for me. I LOVE the tactical stuff, seeing how they deploy the heavy equipment, finally getting to see some of these awesome vehicles in full action, the strategy from the heavy cruisers all the way down to the infantry.

I just hope we get a lot more of the same for the next 3 episodes in this arc.

Oh, and next week - Barriss Offee!!!

Thanks Jayson.

Hello, eBay!

Ugh, the shipping on this thing is going to be brutal...

Scum has a new update on this tonight. Hi-Res Package art, but not much detail about where or when to look for this.

I think I'm going to have to submit this as a question to Hasbro for the full poop.

TRU had the latest wave of TCW repacks on the shelf. (Actually still in the case, waiting to be shelved) CW24-29, if anyone is interested.

No new BP's, no Wave 10.

Thanks dude, I can't see those pics at work but will inspect closely tonight to compare.

I actually have one from my youth, and the one I just got appears identical, so I'm hoping there is some kind of noticeable difference with the "Skittles' Variant.

The photo on the auction though, looked much bluer than what I got though. That is the main reason I am frustrated. Maybe it is just a really subtle difference though.

One more down...Blue Apron Ugnaught.

This is killing me.  >:(

I finally got the Ble Apron Ugnaught, opened it, and what do I find but the purple apron version. Looks nothing like the pic on the auction.

So of course I write the seller to complain and he says "no, that IS the blue apron version. The purple variant is an even darker shade of purple". WTF?!?!

Are people just color-blind or can they really not tell the difference between blue and purple? I feel like I got totally hosed, and am trying to figure out how to get my money back now.

I've been on eBay over 10 years and the worst experiences I have had by far are with people dealing vintage SW merchandise. There is just something inherently shady about the whole enterprise.
