Merge battle packs with whatever they are calling deluxe now and try to keep the price at $20 tops.

Speeder Bike/Scout Trooper and Ewok

Ewok Catapult/ 2 ewoks.

Escape Pod/R2-D2 and C-3PO

Wait...that's stuff people would buy. I mean, keep making that Naboo thingie in the same color over and over and charge $20 for it.

1097
Yeah, price makes people more forgiving. I got some CW Mandalorian guards for cheap from overseas. They still suck but were almost not sucky at around $2 each.  :-\

I was surprised to learn their are 5 Below stores in this state...but given gas prices, by the time I drove to one, the figures probably wouldn't be worth it. It's all AOTC waves, isn't it?

I wouldn't buy a larger line or smaller one. Even buying better versions of old characters gets tiresome, a new scale...nah.

I only collect 3 3/4". And I'm pickier about that than ever.

Yeah, Kashyyyyk shorties they made didn't quite cut it... (even worse now that they new clones they are making are taller than the older version!) I almost liked the recolored ROTJ scout trooper better.

And with that vintage boxed AT-AP showing Kashyyyk troopers, I'm in the mood to buy more. Silly, Hasbro advertizing figures not at retail.

Yes, they really did  make Fett that big and Vader seems short...or maybe that's because Fett is too big.

One target said they were out of coupons but the cashiers had them, just to ask them what ones you needed to use. I got two items and the cashier rang up the coupon once. I said "You can't use it twice"? She said "they usually won't, let's see." Of course, it worked...I'd used two ad coupons early in the week.

Again, a simple 50% sale would've been better and cleared out gobs of merchandise, as I think most average shoppers were unaware of the whole deal.

Those rows of movie heroes and clone wars aren't moving, besides the crappy Maul and Oppress.

No order

10. Landing at Point Rain
9. Hidden Enemy
8. Lightsaber Lost
7. Clone Cadets
6. Arc Troopers
5. The Box
4. The Deserter
3. Rookies
2. A Friend in Need
1. Deception

Just to be a negative nelly, the 5 worst
1. The Academy (zzzz...)
2. Corruption (zzzzz....)
3. The Zillo Beast Strikes Back (may the Cloverfield be with you...should've been a one-parter)
4. Sphere of Influence (and we need a story about these characters because...?)
5. Altar of Mortis (I just pick the middle of that arc because it was an episode too long for what that arc amounted to, which was nothing...a wasted Qui Gonn appearance that could've been used for a cool flashback episode to pre-TPM era times...)

AT-AP ($15), Daulty Dofine ($4) and Clone trooper with BARC speeder bike ($8.50).

Glad the target sale is done...before I start "buying things because they are cheap" 

1104
I sent off for five earlier this week. Hope I wasn't too late. Damn procrastinators...

I doubt it, Hasbro is probably sitting on a butt load of the figures. Makes me wonder what happens to the extras.

The amount of space they take up is ridiculous; I need to cut the bubbles off mine. I just think the plastic should be recycled, but I don't have recycling picked up here...I'd have to pay to go to the center (it used to be free). Good way to help people avoid doing the right thing.  :(

As far as action figures go, the local Babies R Us was a bust.

I went to Target 2 doors down found 2 clearanced vintage 3-packs* marked $9.88. They scanned as $26.99, but I said. "I got the Taret 50% coupons. They are marked 9.88....I'll try it."

Without much hassle, the cashier didn't call a manager or anything, I got both sets for $10.47. Ha!

And I got another 50% coupon from the return counter.

*Stormtrooper/Vader/Death Star Trooper and 2-1B/Leia/Hoth Rebel

Carded images up at sandtroopers.

Tarkin looks better...maybe...hard to tell.

Thus the goofiness of mass rerelease of Sebulba's pod racer while his action figure is currently only available in a store exclusive battle pack.

Babies R Us carries action figures?
