Once you're done the variants you logically move on to carded figures, right?

What's the Toltoy version? (pardon my ignorance)

Thanks for the Han pics. That second one just looks like the legs didn't get painted. Maybe I should add it to the List though...hmm.

11 hours and counting!

VERY psyched for the premier tonight, but I have a feeling I am going to get screwed and miss it. My mother-in-law is due in town tonight on the train and guess who has to go pick her up. It's supposed to be here at 7:30pm - cutting it too close.

I wish they would make these available On-Demand. The re-airings are in even worse time slots.

I hear ya. It's a slippery slope. "Variant" is a VERY subjective term. I've got the vinyl cape jawa, orange hair Luke, etc on my list too, but those may never happen. I wish there was an official catalog of documented variants somewhere. All the information I get is piecemeal.

What is molded Hoth Han? I'm not sure I have heard of this one...

Do you plan an trying to nab all the variants too? I was starting down that road but am starting to reconsider...there are nearly as many variants as regular figures. (maybe even more)

I guess I'd just rather have 1 new figure in a BP than none at all. I'm actually starved for MORE product to buy.

Heck, even a repaint or new weapon would be worth it.

I swear by the eBay Gift cards...I just wish they had them in more denominations. ($25 and $50 is weak)

You can buy them with cash and use them to pay via PayPal. No credit card needed, no suspicious online withdrawals from bank accounts, just untrackable. Brilliant idea.


What EU characters are going into the Clone Wars?  Are you referring to Bossk?   ???  I guess I don't see the problem here.  I'd rather they build off known, popular EU characters from that time frame than just generating a host of brand new characters we've never heard of despite their pivotal roles (like Ahsoka).

Dude, I don't even know what prompted my comment. Maybe I posted in the wrong thread, I don't know. I swear someone had made a comment about adding one of the EU characters to the Clone Wars show as a Jedi Padawan, but I can't remember who it was now.

Ugh...bad barin today, sorry for posting nonsense.

I really hope that the trend of "complete repacks" is going to be an ongoing theme for the BPs from here on out.  BPs are, by and large, the most poorly stocked assortment of SW toys on the shelves, mostly due to the huge bottleneck caused by the Jabba's Palace and B'omarr Monastery sets.  While I think the Yavin Hangar set is one of the best things to come out of the Legacy lineup, for every one of those, we get two more Jabba's Palace sets per case, perpetuating the problem at retail.   :P

Just out of curiosity, why do you favor BP's as straight re-packs going forward? I agree it is really tiresome wading through all the Jabba and B'Omarr swag, but it seems to me repack BP's would gather dust even worse. I have 0 interest in those as a collector. Especially with all the re-packed carded figures CW is releasing in their new waves, I just don't see where there would be much demand, even from parents or kids.

Thanks guys, good to know.

I swear I have a 12" version of this guy somewhere and he doesn't have the respirator either. Great piece though.

Wow, thanks for posting that Brian. I had not heard of the new CW figs showing up at Target yet - that is great to hear! I will have to start re-focusing on them in my daily Hunts.

What stinks is I will have almost no time to drive around looking for new toys tonight or tomorrow because of all the new TV. (Flash-Forward/Fringe and Clone Wars/Dollhouse is a wicked 1-2 punch on consecutive nights)

Maybe I'll take a half day off tomorrow...hmmm.

Yeah, I'm a little surprised they took that display down too. What replaced it?

Disney's "Princess" 4 year old daughter would be enthralled.  ::)

Me? Not so much.

I've never seen one scrapped so soon...they must have realized how bad it looked to have that pretentious display with no product for the pegs.

Please, please, please do not step off that cliff and start putting EU characters in the Clone Wars.

To paraphrase the inimitable Jon Calipari, that's like putting poop in your ice cream.

The Clone Wars is at a whole other level of canonical legitimacy.

Let's leave them separate so the fabric of SW reality does not come crashing down.

Is Zuckuss smoking a pipe?  ???

WTF is that huge thing hanging off his face?

I don't recall that on my vintage version.
