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

Yeah, we have 3 here that I hit regularly, and the 2 that are farther away haven't stocked jack squat for SW in months it seems. But for whatever reason the one right near me keeps putting out new stuff regularly. Not sure if they had a bunch in the back or what, but I'm hoping as long as I keep buying them they'll keep putting more out...

Egg Chamber Action Playset FTW!!!

Incredibly awesome if true. Seems like we do not yet have "official" confirmation though.

They are also releasing some exclusive Alien ReAction figures in new paint schemes and possibly new sculpts with exclusive Alien Egg packaging. Speculation is that these may be Dallas and Lambert.


Yeah, it should come out nice. I guess this was probably farther down my list than some of the other options but I'll definitely be picking one up. I hope this does very well for Walgreen's and we see more stuff like this in the future. I know exclusives can be a drag, but it's also a good avenue to release some interesting repaints or kitbashes that might otherwise never get produced.

The 5-Below near me is like an unrepentant crack dealer, they will not stop feeding my jones for cheap Clone Wars figs.

This store restocked AGAIN this week, and I walked out with the following:

Republic Commando Boss
Captain Rex
Commander Fox
Clone Trooper Phase II (x2)

They actually had a few more Clone Troopers but I had to exercise some restraint. By which I mean I will be back to pick them up in the next day or two...LOL.

Skybound SDCC exclusive will be Ezekiel!

Guess they are doing color and B&W versions ala Negan.

I kinda wish they would get off the comic figs and do an TV-based exclusive, but I guess that is a licensing deal.

At least this one should not be too difficult or pricey to obtain. I have always had good luck picking up their exclusives in the past.

Super 7 has been teasing a sweet-ass new boxed Alien ReAction toy for SDCC that looks an awful lot like a playset!

Not sure if this would be a Nostromo environment or perhaps the alien ship, but it sounds insanely cool. Must buy for me.

I'm usually a sucker for stuff like this but I just can't get excited about this cruddy offering. I have those 2 figures already and don't need to start army building those guys. I have a feeling this is not going to be flying off the shelves like the Boba Fett set. Would not surprise me at all to see these hit their website eventually as other lame exclusives have in the past.

It also doesn't help that there are so many other awesome exclusives out there this year. This is going to be my most expensive SDCC yet, between exclusives for Walking Dead, Pacific Rim, Alien Reaction, etc.

Yes!!! Was just coming here to post this but did not catch the part about the animated series. Excellent.

With Guillermo back, this movie is in good hands. I'll definitely be there on opening night.

Hope NECA is still around by then to make more toys... ;D

Actually, their WD figures are priced cheaper than anywhere else you can find them, such as Gamestop or TRU. They're usually around $13.99 versus $15.99 at the other places. So that at least is encouraging.

Plus didn't the screen shot already show this is going to be priced $19.99?

Just heard about this does seem like a stretch for them but I guess they are getting an exclusive 6" Venom figure too from the Marvel Legends line, so maybe it does fit.

Fine with me...I've never had a problem tracking down any of their WD exclusives, there are tons of them around here.

I'd love the vintage Kenner or Holiday Special deco, although the Prototype or ROTJ versions could be cool too.

Smart exclusive if true, it's basically a license to print money.

I've not liked much of anyone brought up for coach though.  People who've done nothing or have no real experience... 

Mike Johnston?

Loving it?

Agreed, Tuco was one of the most endearing villains of modern cinema, he was a force of nature in that role.

I think my favorite role of his was his cameo in Circle of Iron as the "Man in the Barrel"... classic.

Got the Knifehead today! I am disappointed by the poor construction (soft plastic and hollow parts), but the insane level of cool once this thing is assembled and displayed more than makes up for the shortcomings.

I dunno, it feels pretty hefty to me, but some of the stiff joints on mine make me nervous, given Neca's track record of QC. I can't really get much range of motion out of the "big arms" it seems. Dude is a little front heavy too.

I don't have room for many more of these, but I could do with maybe one more Kaiju to go along with Cherno.

Knifehead arrived yesterday...nearly 20" of awesome!

Can't wait to see pictures of the upcoming Cherno Alpha in this scale...

I don't need a two-foot paper weight.
