There's sketches of some of the characters at an artist's facebook page or go to

It's no suprise that Crimson Asp is gonna be at least 30% recycled Baroness.

Picked up the Darth Maul Returns pack for under $10 at Target. One store sold out of them, the other had 3 left...not gonna make it to 75% off. I don't regret getting it sooner, it's an okay pack but every reason i passed it by was valid. Maul's less than stellar upper body articulation is irritating. I keep wanting to turn him at the waist and the wrists. Opress's lack of ankles hurts, too.

Night Sister is good for what she is.

It's telling how less popular the show is that these hit 50% off. One out of town Target I went to last weekend had nearly a dozen left.

The vintage at Target weren't marked down here. Or there was so little i didn't try to price check them.

I did find the Discover the Force wave at Five Below finally....they got one case out. Picked up the Gungan.

Saw more $5 Saga Legends, last wave, at TJ Maxx/Marshalls, none of the desirable ones. I'd have talked myself into the Super battle droid and shocktrooper if they had the bonus weapons, but the last releases did not.

TRU, the jerks, had the Aayla Secura wave in stock, minus a few figures, since there's no sale this week.

Fun episodes. Shows that good-guy free tend to be like that. Though, it reeked of fanfiction a tad with all these forces coming together. The odds on Pre Vizla finding the Brothers McMaulin' adrift in space? Must be the will of the force. Jabba colluded with the bros., ableit under pressure, but wasn't later killed for it by Sidious?

Vizla repairs the bros before he gets them to ally with him. Not wise.

"They have honour."

"More weakeness."

Nice, very Sith exchange.

I've not read spoiler or the book, but I'm guessing Pre Vizla's future is short. I almost thought they'd kill Sugi.

I liked the lumbering Gamorrean coming at the Mando with his axe and just getting shot. Haw! Also, the "you're telling me that I can find Jabba at Jabba's Palace." Beyond the obvious humor, that also made me laugh as how simply things are named in Star Wars sometimes.

Did the Mando transport appear or just the fighter? I thought I saw the transport breifly once, not sure.

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" 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...
