I'd pick up the AWE Striker and  fangboat on clearance (hope the boat has a normal gun option for the big launcher on the one side...doubt it, though), hell, at $15 SRP I might buy them new if the figures included didn't blow.

Joe Defender / Re: GI Joe Retaliation - The Toys!

I think it's hysterical that GI JOE can make Roadblock a "ninja commando" and leader of the team (or what's left of it).

The word is that the articulation reduction is necessary for costs and it is cheaper to make a new five point articulated figure than to pay extra cost assembly for a reissue or some corporate spew...maybe...why included drivers? They must be necessary for value perception...but then most Star Wars vehicles are figureless. And the new Retaliation packages don't even display the figure in a little window, either.

Word is the heads of the drivers can probably fit on good figures.

Wow, what a letdown.

- Tarkin sucks, which is disappointing considering how long we've been waiting for one. Why waste soft goods on him? That's just a puzzling move, save that for Jedi or Troopers, or people who actually do more than just stand there and walk around.

Death Star conference all the officers are sitting. I like for them to sit, but that cloth looks bad, even the old POTF2 molded on "skirt" detail was better looking (and he could sit).

Would it kill Hasbro to have some consistency between their Imperial Officers?

They've never gotten them right. It's amazing. They sculpted Needa's torso with removable rank badges and have only used it again on At-At Commander whose badge is covered up by his armor.

How bulky will that look? They had to make ROTS Anakin a southpaw light up saber because of his thinner robot right hand.

30% off all some  star wars with week at Toy R Us (their ad lies and implies everything). Mostly new stuff, all figures and new battle packs. The older boxed crap is 10% off, you, the stuff other stores clearanced out already.

I went to Walmart yesterday and they had the 3D movie wave. There were 3D glasses all over the place! Some kids had a field day removing them from the cards and scatering them throughout the asile. There were only a couple of cards that still had the glasses intack. Weird since we were just talking about this happening.

It wasn't kids. I did it. I wanted to stick it to MOC collectors. Also, I thought they were x-ray glasses and kept looking for a pair that wasn't "defective".  :P

Interesting no new Jedi Force stuff was shown. So have they abandoned Jedi Force stuff for AMP'D?

The inclusion of Corpsey makes this smell a bit.

Hmm...maybe the figure will have "real charred fur smell" scent, like Stinkor from 1980's Masters of the Universe.  :D

I dunno about Nien Nunb having a removable hat...his is rather thin and to translate that into removable at this scale might look bulkier than it should. The pilots had ear muffs and the mask to visually offset the thickness of their head covering, which was probably thicker than it should've been.

Looks like no knee joints on scuba Ahsoka.

Vader with light up sabre...thank goodness...it's so hard to find Darth Vader figures.

ROTS Anakin with light up sabre...or will he be called Vader, too?

Snowspeeder Luke with a new hat! backpack....retracting grapple rope! Can we expect a snowspeeder rerelease to go with him...probably not.

Younger Ahsoka would've made more sense, what with early CW Anakin and Obi-Wan. Though, I think Obi-Wan is a wasted slot. Mainly there's no "wow, that's what he'd look like if he were in a movie!"...just "meh".  I can think of 20 figures I'd make before that...and that's just from CW.

ANH Vader...no chest soft goods.  But ball hips at last.

The clones and sandtroopers bore me at this point. Clone Pilot is especially boring...evolutions pack redeco....except he's not...has at least new lower legs/feet. More tooling on something that could've waited until 2014.

Nien Nunb kinda squatty...can't remember if he is supposed to be.

Lumat wrong color...this pains me because I really want a character I've never been able to spot onscreen to be 100% accurate.  :P

For TPM rerelease year, there's no Tarpals, no Panaka, no Naboo Security, no Nute, no Security Droid.

The draw here some cardboard and a "toture Jar Jar" joke?

The  lost lines that would be interesting:

Holiday Special figures (Chewie's family, basically)
Post-ROTJ Kenner ideas (Mongo beefhead, Imperial attack droids, Atha Prime, etc.)

Neither will ever happen, too much new tooling or a taboo subject. But that's good...I would actually want those. Seriously, Hasbro, make all the exclusive packaging stuff you want for geek festivals. Those are the only kind of con exclusives there should be.

Great news. I didn't think there were enough packaging variation exclusives and Vader figures in the line.

Should've bet on the honey, bunny.  :P

A figure that's had 2 figures, abliet not great ones, vs. characters never before made as figures. Yeah, fandom sucks or it was rigged....or both.

I encourage everyone to mail dyed green plush rabbits to Hasbro in protest! Or Depends if you wanted Jocasta.  ;)
