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.

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.  ;)

Episode arcs like this though really kind of make me wish this show would delve into the alternate universe realm, just to make it more interesting. Throw fans for a loop and kill off a major character who's supposed to survive till ROTS like Mace or something. It'd open up so many new story ideas and make the entire series more dire because all of a sudden we won't know how things are going to turn out.

Lucas should've done that with ROTS...faked everyone out...then announced immediate plans to remake The Original Trilogy (since he was never happy with them). Think, if he had, we'd be past the ESB remake by now!

Color me underwhelmed by the conclusion.

Yeah, more homages and teases referencing the films set after this series.  Yay. Those hoping for more originality... :-\ (The prequels themselves had that problem, too, so...)

The holo disguise matrix....hmmm...didn't the inventor of those die last episode...or did he? (looks from stills that were was a cut scene last episode with that snaggletooth guy and Bane)

Those poor Naboo workers. Was the Chancellor's life worth theirs? Huh, Obi-Wan?

I was amused by Bane posing a Nemoidian (During preproduction for episode 1, Lucas declared them the same race before someone talked him out of it.)

Put the TIE Wings on the X-Wing body..how kewl would that be!  8)

Build a droid compatible figures....create a half C-3PO and half Han Solo!  :o

But it won't even be anything that fun. Probably a new scale. They love new sizes...let's make 3 FORCE BATTLERS a different scale from the originals and never go beyond that. Afterall, they are just for some toddler to smash in to the floor. Or GI JOE RETALIATION, 10" figures...two of them...both heroes and they are supposed to....? That's right, be smashed into things by a toddler.

I must've been a weird kids because I preferred things at least close to the same size. I had one 12" Star Wars figure I never really did anything with, it was cool...but i didn't play out GIANTS ATTACK stories too much.
