TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - Season Six?

Ah there's your problem.  The Wii is not an HD machine.

Rats, turns out you are exactly right...I had no idea.

Plan B I guess!

The thing is, if they give us the vehicles, we're going to need the pilots to drive 'em.  :)

Especially for that more generic TIE that is sure to come one day...

Agreed, it was a great episode. Wonder if going forward they will rotate through the various characters in each episode or feature them in mini-arcs.

Cripes, those poor rabbits! I couldn't tell what I was looking at when they first zoomed past the hollow log (dang non-HD) but it was pretty clear later...eesh.

I still don't think Lizzie offed Karen and the other guy, it seems to be more of a steadily escalating thing with her, but she is definitely the rat-feeder and dissectionist. Creepy kid, she was really giving off a last-episode-of-MASH vibe with Judith there in the woods. Eesh.

Was surprised to see Tara's story was not over yet, but I kinda liked her self-deprecating attitude. Not sure if I see why Glenn actually needs her, unless as walker bait, but I don't mind seeing her story continue. (Did they ever show her sister getting offed? I don't recall that)

As far as "Terminus" - mmm, after Woodbury they might want to be a little leery about greener pastures, but I guess they don't have much else of a plan. Shouldn't they have had some kind of designated regroup site if they all got separated? Good luck with that.

At long last though...Abraham! Came off like a bit of a heavy there but I'm looking forward to more next week for sure.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2014

I think, in this context, when Hasbro says "EU" they mean the books, comics, etc - not the Clone Wars. We're getting Rex finally and the 2 new clones in the BS so it seems like they will continue to mine that property, thankfully.

But yeah, the price on some of those older figures (Revan, Malak, etc) is going to skyrocket even moreso.

Overall, I have to say - great Toyfair. My expectations were very minimal so I was happy to be overwhelmed. All the Rebels stuff looked great, the confirmation of the 3 TCW characters upcoming, the 6" reveals were all amazing.

Thanks for all the great photos Jeff, terrific job on the coverage and super fast posting of all the galleries!

My head literally exploded today over the news about Beorn, The Bard, and Smaug! The fact that they showed off the dwarves again still gives me hope they will find a way to get them out.

My excitement for this line has been re-stoked!

I've seen a number of reports on different lines this morning already, so it's never too soon.  ;)

Anything new shown off at TF? Maybe the next comic wave or at least some nice up close shots of Daryll and motorcycle? I checked AFI but they didn't have anything up as of late last night...

Saw the Twitpic on Neca's feed last night with the latest Pacific Rim toys from TF. Pretty much looked like Wave 3 plus the 18" Knifehead. Anyone know if any other teasers were revealed? Maybe a Wave 4 or additional 18"?

Nice! So six figures shown off, plus Zeb in the 2-pack, looks like a solid first wave. Love the McQ-inspired helmet for Better Than Ezra. Agent Kallus was a cool new reveal too. This line has got me, for sure.

Oh man, I'm SO EXCITED for these! They look amazing and I'm so relieved that they appear to be more or less in scale. Really gives me hope they will do The Ghost right too.

The Phantom looks like they carved it right out of the base of the Republic Attack Shuttle.

I am 100% officially all-in on this line.  :)

Were the Clonetrooper and Black Pauldron Sandtrooper on display? Still trying to track down pics of those...

Zeb is pure awesomeness, I'm loving that figure, articulation aside. I've already added this set to my Must-Buy list for 2014.

Agreed the Troop Transport HAS to be made for this line...

Wish there were pics of Vader with the helmet on, def looks great even without though. The Speeder Scout looks amazing, really most of the stuff does. Even Anakin looks passable, better than the earlier photos at least.

So no point in buying the single carded Jabba then?

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Deluxe Line

Man, I love it, but they gotta put something else in that box! At least some frogs to snack on, the pipe, bowl, whatever.

So how much would the dais/Crumb set go for at SDCC? Maybe they could throw Oola in there to add some value?

Any estimated ship date on either of these deluxe items?
