The special collectors 3-packs are being clearanced at Target.

And if you are certain person at another website, that's an excuse to vent at supposedly cheapskate collectors, because, blah, blah...these sets were so good or something that they shouldn't have made it to clearance (even though the earlier ones did).

They are 5-point articulation figures that Hasbro said were made mainly for foreign markets (South America, etc.). IIRC, the Clone's gun is molded to his hand.

For some reason the battle droids were not programmed to be suicidal and planned to leave in the shuttle, can a shuttle take off from another ship in hyperspace?

I missed this...the skeleton in old ship wreckage in "A Sunny Day in the Void" was Jaxxon's...or a similarly dressed member of his species.

Seems the next arc is three episodes, though we actually got part 1 of 4 out of sequence as the season opener.

In a rare visit to a city 40 miles aways, I found Arc Trooper Commander (Fordo) at TRU. First time I've seen him. Got him. At a nearby TJ Maxx found Rebel Transport Speeder and Geonosian speeder for $5 each on clearance (they had 2 more geonosians, but I had to pass on them for $$$ reasons). They had Saga Legends (Shadows of darkside packaging) for $5, too. Never heard of them carrying those before. It was the last wave, (no secret weapons) Mace windu/Destroyer Droid/Shock Trooper/R2 where the ones I saw.

Shows that my area sucks for Star Wars hunting more than I realized. Though the Target there has sucky TPM wave leftovers, too. That's one consistency.

"Point of No Return"...it was better than the Bridget Fonda movie of the same name. Speaking cameo for Tarkin. Bunny droid.

Why did Gascon initially think the separatists were just going to blow up that ship, one they went to the trouble to capture? What an idiot.

Why did they call it a Jedi Cruiser? It's a Republic ship. Maybe they think the audience is dumb. IT's A GOOD GUY SHIP!

Horrific droid casualties. Is this the buzz droid's first appearance on the show? Can't remember.

So a major strike is foiled mostly by happenstance? R2-D2 saved the day...and future murderers Tarkin and Anakin and the sin of that is on his dome! ANH is now about R2 trying to atone for his past.  ;)

It's never going to happen. I said that 8 years ago and have yet to suspect otherwise.

What happened to the episodes that were  to be 6-8, supposed to air last fall:  "An Old Friend", "The Rise of Clovis" and "Crisis of the Heart"?

Are they going for a 23 episode season or what?  End it on a Padme centered arc?

4 trips since Xmas and I've found nothing. I feel cheated, because I think they won't get the gamorrean guard wave at all and i've wasted gas.

Remember when there were great after Xmas clearances? There's nothing out there. Not here. You wouldn't know it was after Christmas time at all!

Um, "cheated" is not having any 5 Below stores within 250 miles.   ;)

That's just more "cheated". In the past I felt the same about Ollies (there is one in driving distance now), Fred Meyer,  Ross (especially Ross) etc...

There's a Separatist mining operation on the planet according to something I read.

The devastating battle Gascon mentions was in a comic book, there's a decent nod.

I still like this arc more than the Onderbland one. It has been drawn out too much, but that applies to all three arcs this season, which account for over half the season (12 episodes). It's interesting how little Kenobi and especially Anakin have been used. I'm not complaining. However, it's a bit silly for the only "starring" character in a four episode arc to be R2-D2. Jettisoning the pit droid for 3PO might've been preferrable, but his appearances seemed limited...budget or Daniels' availability? I don't know.

I'm not buying the Disney want's B-A-D to themselves until hard evidence backs it up. The rumor mill said Legacy was getting axed even before the deal with Disney was finalized. So advanced negotiations over  a theme park exclusive? Seems iffy.

Also, I'd think that the people, hard core collectors and casual vistors, going to the theme park to get B-A-D's is negligible in overall Disney profits. We are talking about just one theme park here, right?

What now? Let me tell you what now. I'ma call a couple of hard, pipe-hittin' collectors to go to work on Hasbro here with a pair of pliers and a blowtorch. You hear me talkin' Rhode Island boy? I ain't through with you by damn sight. I'ma get medieval on your ass.

(I couldn't resist.)
