So did anyone on that planet survive besides the astro droid?

I'd think Maul would kill them all anyway. I would've sent a fleet...maybe 15 minutes behind Kenobi, so he didn't know.

Dangling plot threads to the show, and this season mostly avoided pursuing them. We had two 4-part episodes that were stand alone. Another Zygerian arc that ate up 3 episodes. 3 more with Mon calamari. The mostly disposable R2 3PO adventures. In the broader storylines, that left us with the season end arc and the one-off Death Watch episode. The only significant deaths of previously seen characters were Tarpals and that 212th clone (Waxer?). Secondary Jedi seemed underused (Krell aside, whom we'd never seen before). Dooku appeared more than ever it felt like.

It wasn't a bad season, though. It's just that some parts of it felt short (Maul's story) and others too long (the underwater war, and arguably the Umbara arc). Plus the odd break up of the Zygerian 3 parter...waiting a month for its resolution.

So, is the new Jar Jar figure in this assortment? Is he going to be released in the Vintage line eventually?

No. Jar Jar is coming later this year on vintage card only. The current Jar Jar is different, less articulated on a Movie Heroes card.

Anti-climatic.

SPOILERS ahead:

 But "sane" Maul is back.

What's Talzin's stake in this? That Maul will eventually go after Dooku?  Her magic has an engineering degree...nice use of scrapped droids. She might wanna repair some droid for herself, you know, bury all her dead sisters (or cocoon them for zombie hijinks later).

Obi-Wan for his flippancy in the face of evil didn't ask Maul who his master was? Nor did dumb Savage, who's the type to ask straight forward question.

We are still left wondering how bisected Maul became spider-maul.

If they'd sent a task force, they could've blown them up in space. Whatever...the will of the force...my butt. They ran away.

Why on Earth is Hasbro still using those horribly over-sized helmets on the clones?  Good grief.

So everyone can buy a "corrected" version next year or whenever.

I'm probably giving them too much credit there.

Always hotties looking for "bargain" clothes. Like there's always at least one cashier at Target who fills out her khakis nicely.  :)

Seeing the bids on that Ahsoka set (over $40!), I wish I'd gotten one to resell. But I think most people are wise now and/or there'll be dozens listed within a week.

Was it ever established what the difference between this new Vader and the other 832650123856013361 Vader's we've gotten since the original VOTC Vader is? I know the gloves but otherwise, yeah.

Chest with the robes over the armor (A New Hope style), non-removable helmet and the first ball jointed hips on an OT Darth Vader 3 3/4" scale figure.

Worthy upgrades, of all 4 new Vaders this year, it might be the best.   :P

Saw the one with Ahsoka at a Marshalls today, not the other one. $10 as said. Not worth it to me, though the clone is at least the good old body, not the somewhat feminine under-articulated Stone body (which is more show accurate, which I don't care about).

Maybe it'll be like Bastila Shan and ship in no quantities.

I somehow doubt Nom de Guerre there will be a peg warmer. It'll be the episode 1 reships that will be around and around...except maybe Maul.

The big helmeted fool or the EU tool?

It is cool they are making 3 3/4" toys based on the 80's Masters of the Universe movie. I'd think Mattel would have the rights, though.  :P

That CW Anakin photoshop card looks awful.

Same vintage photo for Vader, now the figure matches it more. They could've done something different.

Imperial Navy Trooper is messed up. The character shown on the photo had a GREY UNIFORM.  ;)

(Or maybe it was brown  :D )

They should  do a recolor of Hoth Luke like his Kenner micro-collection versions, a red-brown vest.

I like the opening too where Savage is just randomly strangling some chick for apparently no reason. Did she spill coffee on him or something? And yet he runs away like a little girl from those scary police robots?

From the slideshow on the official Clone Wars site:

Quote
"The diner scene originally began with the waitress droid -- Marwigo -- not having much luck getting Opress's order, and passing off the customer to her human colleague, Sassi. When Sassi reaches toward Opress's amulet, he reacts violently."

Also of note:
Quote
In the script, the cook Loubo is holding a blaster to which the spaceport police droid says, "Lou! Are you crazy, pointing that thing at a Jedi?" Changing the prop into a frying pan turned this moment into a joke.


Quote
I can never read the credits when the show airs live, but I would bet anything the voice of the weird snake thing was James Hong, the very esteemed David Lopan from Big Trouble in Little China and also of Blade Runner fame. He is AWESOME, great choice.


You'd lose that bet. Ben Diskin did the voice of Morley the snake.

I've read the a backseat doors don't open. GI JOE's versions did (from 2004-2005). PTE's did for like almost half the price. 

Seriously, what's the point of a detailed real world vehicle that can't do the simple things?

The return of 50's style diner over the almost obligatory cantina. No quaint Irish pubs in this galaxy!
