Why on Earth is Hasbro still using those horribly over-sized helmets on the clones?  Good grief.

So everyone can buy a "corrected" version next year or whenever.

I'm probably giving them too much credit there.

Always hotties looking for "bargain" clothes. Like there's always at least one cashier at Target who fills out her khakis nicely.  :)

Seeing the bids on that Ahsoka set (over $40!), I wish I'd gotten one to resell. But I think most people are wise now and/or there'll be dozens listed within a week.

Was it ever established what the difference between this new Vader and the other 832650123856013361 Vader's we've gotten since the original VOTC Vader is? I know the gloves but otherwise, yeah.

Chest with the robes over the armor (A New Hope style), non-removable helmet and the first ball jointed hips on an OT Darth Vader 3 3/4" scale figure.

Worthy upgrades, of all 4 new Vaders this year, it might be the best.   :P

Saw the one with Ahsoka at a Marshalls today, not the other one. $10 as said. Not worth it to me, though the clone is at least the good old body, not the somewhat feminine under-articulated Stone body (which is more show accurate, which I don't care about).

Maybe it'll be like Bastila Shan and ship in no quantities.

I somehow doubt Nom de Guerre there will be a peg warmer. It'll be the episode 1 reships that will be around and around...except maybe Maul.

The big helmeted fool or the EU tool?

It is cool they are making 3 3/4" toys based on the 80's Masters of the Universe movie. I'd think Mattel would have the rights, though.  :P

That CW Anakin photoshop card looks awful.

Same vintage photo for Vader, now the figure matches it more. They could've done something different.

Imperial Navy Trooper is messed up. The character shown on the photo had a GREY UNIFORM.  ;)

(Or maybe it was brown  :D )

They should  do a recolor of Hoth Luke like his Kenner micro-collection versions, a red-brown vest.

I like the opening too where Savage is just randomly strangling some chick for apparently no reason. Did she spill coffee on him or something? And yet he runs away like a little girl from those scary police robots?

From the slideshow on the official Clone Wars site:

Quote
"The diner scene originally began with the waitress droid -- Marwigo -- not having much luck getting Opress's order, and passing off the customer to her human colleague, Sassi. When Sassi reaches toward Opress's amulet, he reacts violently."

Also of note:
Quote
In the script, the cook Loubo is holding a blaster to which the spaceport police droid says, "Lou! Are you crazy, pointing that thing at a Jedi?" Changing the prop into a frying pan turned this moment into a joke.

I can never read the credits when the show airs live, but I would bet anything the voice of the weird snake thing was James Hong, the very esteemed David Lopan from Big Trouble in Little China and also of Blade Runner fame. He is AWESOME, great choice.


You'd lose that bet. Ben Diskin did the voice of Morley the snake.

I've read the a backseat doors don't open. GI JOE's versions did (from 2004-2005). PTE's did for like almost half the price. 

Seriously, what's the point of a detailed real world vehicle that can't do the simple things?

The return of 50's style diner over the almost obligatory cantina. No quaint Irish pubs in this galaxy!

Wow. They totally ripped-off the movie Soldier.

Sucked to be the freighter guy. His ship seemed a bit more ALIEN universe like than Star Wars.

Planet was a hellacious place complete with dragons and a serpent.

Maul was Gollum and Shelob rolled into one. Dooku's something "sinister is rising" reminded me of Saruman's "a new power is arising" from The Two Towers.

Lots of good and bad players appeared, so I wonder what role they'll play, if any, in part 2.

Sir Laserlot is one step above Spector which is not saying much. He looks/reminds me of those cheap REMCO He-Man knock offs that you could only find at Woolworth's.

I bought my first Remco Warrior Beast knock-off at a K-Mart (awesome crow-headed monster in black and yellow). I remember seeing them a few places. Laserlot does sort of look like one of the Galaxy Fighters, another knock-off series.

I liked the knock-offs, they added generic good and bad characters since MOTU had no "army builders" until Horde Trooper.  The snake and reptile characters the knock-off lines always later made nice Snake-Men additions. 

The Remco Warrior Beasts had no armor, but you could give them accessory pack armor or the armor from the jet sled and stilt stalkers.
The sucky thing was Warrior Beasts/Warlord figure had plastic ball socket hips instead of rubber bands...sound better on paper, but they could break off.

I don't collect the modern MOTU. Just felt nostalgic there for a second.

1. Ann/Tann Gella
2. Kittster and Wald (Both are deserving, but if it came down to, it I'd be okay if only Wald got made.)
3. Diva Shaliqua
4. Rango Tel
5. Aehrrley Rue
6. MOT-NOT RAB
7. Edcel Bar Gane (Senator)
8. Mik Regrap
9. Tendau Bendon
10. Klaatu (Jabba Guard)

I never really buy the pod racers. So why list them? Hasbro acted like Tey How was an eventual release (yeah, right...like they'll make Security Battle Droids again, too.)
