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!

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.)

All will be....might be...probably won't be answered next week.

What was the Republic's greatest defeat that we never got to see?

Official word (say this at the 'Scum)

From Hasbro P/R:

Star Wars fans,

The Droid Factory line which was slated for spring 2013 has been cancelled. We were very excited about this line at its inception and wanted to give fans an early sneak peek when we unveiled it at Star Wars Celebration this past summer. Unfortunately since then, through the course of development, we realized that the price would have to be increased and we felt that the value we were adding with the droid parts was no longer substantiated.

As a result, we have decided to rework our 3.75” figure program to create a line that is on-par with the quality and pricing of the Vintage Collection. Many of the figures intended for the Droid Factory will become available in this new line in the fall. We’ll be able to share more news on this at Toy Fair.

We also recognize that there were many hard-to-find Vintage Collection figures in 2012. So, as we shared last December, we will re-release many of these figures this spring before the Vintage Collection goes on hiatus, making way for some of the most exciting new initiatives for SW collectors in years.

Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm.

So they are attributing it to not wanting a rise in prices. Well...*^@#&&!*...I'd guess build a droid is never returning then. That will make it easier to pass on a lot of figures, though.
And VINTAGE is still going on hiatus. This is no surprise to me.

I think they are gonna take a bath on some amount of TVC regardless. Time to make value-two packs or something.  Not that glue or taped cards will make a lot of us happy, but...

Thumbs up to this episode if only for the cameo by Kenner Walrus Man! The Russian-accented Sullustan short order cook was an odd heel, too.

Gregor looked better with the beard. Gregor in armor is an easy repaint for Hasbro, so look for him never of next never.

Unrelated note, DC Nation is back, finally.

Star Wars: Barring any catastrophic changes to the line (scale, reduced articulation all around), I'm still in for whatever, whenever.

G.I. JOE: I dunno...they are too expensive at $10 each. I never liked the change in scale. But not a year goes buy when I don't pick up something.

I avoid Lego, once you go brick, you never go back!

Last year I debated collecting the blind bagged Playmobil figures, but talked myself out of it...because I'm feeling/looking too old to collect such a kiddie line at all and like Lego, there's too much Playmobil out there. You slip up and buy a regular set, then it escalates.

Go ahead and delete this subforum. Or change it to "The ???? Collection" until Toy Fair.

"Fight the separatists with this awesome group of starfighters. "

Jango Fett likes to fight Separatists, when he's, you know, not working for them.  :P

The clone wars releases have had carded images shown, assumably they are ready to go.

Problem with breaks, is that after distribution of Vintage, I feel like the whole thing is a break until some minor miracle happens.

The Vintage Collection / Re: Best of 2012?
« on: January 2, 2013, 07:11 PM »
Best Figure: Kithaba

Runner Up: Probably one I didn't find (Shae? Nikto?) or didn't open (I'm subconsciously planning on retiring on Malgus and Navy Trooper and 2 Royal Guards  :P ). That I did open/buy, I'll go with Weequay.

Best Vehicle: Speeder Bike I never got around to getting. Why? I'm cheap. Also, I'd acquired 3 POTF2 bikes over the summer for less than $10 total.
Runner Up:  AAT with the new I being sarcastic?  Of what I actually bought, I'd pick the Mandalorian Transport which was supposed to be released last year. So it's either the AAT, the BARC speeder (was that even a repaint?) or the vintage boxed AT-AP, which was a reissue, not even a repaint...I think.

Best Exclusive: that retailer went defunct ages ago...(who even remembers BEST?).  Ewok  set.

Runner Up: the AT-ST drivers, even though they are too tall and should've included helmets with the goggles up as well.

Best Multi-pack: Fields of Naboo battle Set

Runner-Up: don't know didn't buy any others...the Maul Pack for clone wars?
