The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Sequel Trilogy Speculation
« on: November 29, 2012, 12:06 PM »
Multiple films per year might reinvigorate the franchise or burn it out.

Star Wars films were EVENT releases in the past (animated Clone Wars movie aside, which had a lukewarm reception).

The Vintage Collection / Re: $5 Vintage Collection @ Five Below

The figures in wave 3, Revision 11 cases were:

 1x VC14 Sandtrooper
 1x VC15 Clone Trooper (Ep III)
 1x VC20 Yoda
1x VC21 Gamorrean Guard
1x VC22 Admiral Ackbar
1x VC23 Jedi Luke Skywalker
1x VC24 Skiff Guard - Wooof (Klaatu)
1x VC25 R2-D2 with Lightsaber and Drink Tray
1x VC26 Rebel Commando
1x VC27 Wicket
1x VC28 Rebel Pilot Wedge Antilles
1x VC08 Darth Vader

Good news if you wanted that earlier Wedge release (the cards were different, weren't they?) I missed Wicket and never felt like paying after market for him. Heck, I could get two one for each hood.

Jedi Temple Archives reported that Gamorrean Guards were found at a Five Below by Dan Curto.

I think this is the story or part of it, that leads to a Republic Commando being featured.

Not sure they do that sort of thing (exception being the better legs for the AT-TE). More likely to tell you to return it or they'd send you a shipping label and you can return the whole thing to Hasbro and they'll send you something random of equal value.

There was irritating music this week...at first I wasn't sure it was a score or some machine somewhere Rick's team was gonna come across.

Mixed bag episode. Hermit part seemed to come out of nowhere...run in here...hey, a crazy survivor! Oh, he's dead!

Parts with Rick and Carl were good. Their interaction with Michonne felt rushed...but she is a person of few words.

The governor makes Merle look likable by comparison.

Not sure where they are going with Woodbury's scientist.

Impressive. I remember seeing that station in a book in the 90's. Wasn't there another one, too?

There's one repaint ship we won't see.

Dooku let Hondo off light. Not sure why Dooku was dismantling the ships, as opposed to just commandeering them with droid crews.

Hondo calling Dooku a Sith lord but seemed to think Maul and Opress are Jedi in the episode set after this one (they reshuffled the airing order).

Grievous has some strange speeder, one yet to appear in toy form.

Kenobi letting Hondo go? WTF?

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: CW Mandalorian Troop Shuttle
« on: November 23, 2012, 10:02 PM »
I was looking my shuttle over...  It's a neat ship, but not for what it ultimately was intended to be.  It's cooler as a small fighter than a shuttle...  The cockpit is pretty cramped and the ship's size is kind of unrealistic IMO, but as a little Mando fighter I think it has some hope so I'm going with that I think. 

Just opened mine. Oh, yeah it's cramped. I'm fine with it being a shuttle, but the body needed to be maybe a 1/2 inch or inch wider to give the figures elbow room. As much empty space was in the box, they had room to make it a tad bigger. Still, not enough transport craft made. Even if it had been a 3 seater, it still would deserve praise just for holding that many  figures.

Sale is still going on today according to Jedi Temple Archives.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Walmart Black Friday 8-Packs
« on: November 23, 2012, 09:54 PM »
Freaking glue. This is a pyrrhic value. I got 3 out of the backer with minimal damage/residue. The rest are hopelessly stuck to the back side of the cardboard holder. The other pack I got is totally glued in. Hair dryer seems to have no effect on the glue.

So, I'm debating if Seripas is worth $25. I guess Wolfe is okay...I'm not in love with the clone wars line anymore, so my plan was to keep what I wanted and resale/trade the rest. Now that idea is just one big headache.

I did not see her in a value pack, but a TJ Maxx had Siff like a week ago for $6...who knows if she is still there.

I noticed that unlike the Star Wars packs, the figures in these could  be "swapped" out without great difficulty...some were loose in the store.

Found wave 3 or whatever at a Wal-Mart...got Kithaba...passed on the rest for now hard to pay $10 for a figure when there's 8 packs for $20. They had Nom, too.

I found one today...just one left. Passed on the rest of the combo, AV cannon tempting but...not a jedi fighter collector...but I know I'd keep it since I didn't have it.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Walmart Black Friday 8-Packs
« on: November 23, 2012, 05:35 PM »
Went to two Wal-Marts

"Ghetto" Wal-Mart (not that bad, just small) had GOBS of them, Avengers, Clone Wars 2011 and 2012, Movie Heroes and Saga Legends.

The super Center had 6 Clone Wars (2011 and 2012) and 4 Avengers ones left.

Hard to find Clone Wars figures were gone or not to be found (the 2012 releases  I saw were all the same 8 figures), except in the 2 packs I found.

Here's the two I got:
Aquad Droid
Commander Wolfe
Seripas
Sasee Tinn
Obi-Wan Kenobi (2011)
Shirtless Savage Opress
Stealth ops Clone
Trooper Hevy in training gear

and
Shaak Ti
Trooper Hevy In training gear (again)
Clone Trooper Draa
Quinlan Vos
Boba Fett
R4-P17
Undead Geonosian
Cato Parasitti

That was it, there was more diversity in the 2011 packaged stuff, though the two packs I found were heavier on scarce releases. No single carded Mandos or season 3 Ahsoka.

Saga Legends assortments were similar but not set in stone, best I could find was one with 4 army builders, Chewbacca....sucky Vader and Grievous and some  other character. It amounted to paying $5 each, because the Vader and Grievous suck so much...so I passed. Saw no later 2011 releases...space trooper, ds trooper, stormtrooper...

Avengers stuff seemed totally random...given 3 different lines to pick from, not surprising. Some sets were tempting, but I don't collect Marvel. Figures I never saw before Armored whiplash, Red skull, Crossbones, Destroyer, comics Iron Monger

Now to decide what to keep.  :P
