Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Batman - The Dark Knight Rises

I saw it yesterday. I preferred to wait for crowds and hype to die down.

Good. Not quite excellent. I felt the two villains' deaths weren't satisfying enough. If you have people with evil schemes, it's more fun to let them live long enough to see their plans fail.

There was totally a missed opportunity for a "straw man" joke during Crane's judgement of Gordon. "So, the Scarecrow makes us the straw men."

I think Gordon was dumb for thinking the truth of Dent's death should be revealled. Dent wasn't evil at heart, just flawed. Batman took the blame...he offered to take the blame. 

That also makes Wayne's seclusion one big dumb guilt trip. 

It's also a bit dated in sculpting terms, even if it's superarticulated. Luke Snowspeeder is a better sculpt (obviously a snowspeeder pilot sculpt). Of course, pining for a new X-wing pilot sculpt would backfire; they'd make one and reduce articulation.

The only one I'd get, KRAANG, doesn't look to have much articulation.

I heard of people finding him.

I picked up the TRU Ewok and Pilots multi-packs just now. Nice, but at 40 bucks a pop, ouch.

Yeah, Ouch.

I got a $5 off purchase of $25 or more TRU coupon...some fools left it behind at the post office. Good until early September. Hmmm...

After all these years, this picture still applies.

KB trooper is wondering why he hasn't gotten a paycheck in 4 years.

Window in that scene looks like TIE Fighter windshield.

I recall that movie but never saw but a snippet of it.

Comic figures and Katanga? Interesting.

hopefully they will carry forward these highly sough after army builders with all of their accessories into the build a droid line

Hopefully, but unlikely. Waves are planned too far in advance, unless they tacked a repaint/reissue year end wave on for 2013. They haven't done that in a few years.

So, at the Targets that have completed their resets, did they put out new figures too? Or are the pegs still half-empty?

1/2 to 2/3 empty.  No new figures for any series.

Vintage starfighter asst not clearanced around here.

Someone nabbed all the villain sets around there, both stores. I'm not exactly wanting to spend $25 on snags, anyway.

Jabba and Empire lock-out! Take that, Ewoks/rebels. 

I agree that Ree Yees and Yak Face deserve remakes (though, I'd remake them after every possible unmade ROTJ character was made first) and a better throne Palpatine is desirable, but I don't see what was wrong with the POTJ Amanaman.

Got a Corporate Alliance Droid Tank off Ebay, with two Battlefront battle droids, for $11 including shipping. Decent toy (not toon accurate, of course, but released under CW), didn't realize the side guns don't rotate...kinda weak in that aspect. They should've put foot pegs on the side treads. The working tread in neat. I like the crew compartments. It really should be bigger, but that would've been unlikely. I still think the eyes are goofy, but anyway I wanted one in case I every make a  Battle of Kashyyyk display.

The revenge waves sat in warehouses and got dumped at Tuesday Morning. It seems the Panda Baba waves got unloaded at babies R us.

That's right...the Tuesday Morning here closed 2 years ago and the nearest one is an hour away.

I checked Babies R Us here non-baby toys. Awkward going into a story like that. Good place to meet single women, though. LOL.

Got Wedge Antilles at  Wal-Mart. He didn't scan at the register. Cashier asked me if I remembered how much it was. I said 50 cents...okay, okay... I said $8. That still makes me a somewhat terrible person.

Those ARC-170 imperial versions are now $30 on clearance. Ah...I never wanted that ship.

This is the last vintage wave for now, right? It'll be interesting to see how the rest of the year turns out with waves 4-7 fighting their ways onto the shelves at the same time.

They'll just vanish like the waves from 2011. I didn't even see that much of the wave with Rebel Fleet Trooper or Revenge of the Jedi carded figures, the wave with Bastila Shan I didn't see at all.

Where did they all go? Other parts of the country? An alternate dimension?
