The vintage 3-packs are under $10 at Target and NO ONE TOLD ME.  ??? Heh. Haven't been Target lately...because they were barren last time I went.

The Legacy Arena packs are like $8 something...still higher than the two sales they had on them the last two years.

So we'll be seeing the same 7 figures from now until 2013...especially Darth Sidious.

Hope there's some revision cases.

I noticed Ithorian bounty hunter. A nod to the kids of decades ago who used Kenner's Hammerhead as a baddie because he came with a bad guy gun.  ;) Or maybe a big thumbing of the nose to the EU's pacifist take on the species.

Or probably just reusing character models.  :P

It's mind boggling too because these were figures that were considered mega-crappy back when they were originally released... I mean, did ANYBODY buy that Maul for any reason other than the cool metal double saber it came with? I think that Vader originally came with a cool Cloud City platform piece. Now you get a die and a card.

Yeah, strangely though that Vader appears to be in  A NEW HOPE costume, not the ESB version.

I-Mid-Size ships...  Same as MH and Deluxe...  a whole lot of old, and better choices available but skipped over (Clone Cannon and Jedi Speeders would've been better than the AT-AP or a V-19).

I'm gonna Hasbro some credit there. Clone vehicles seem to do fairly well (attack shuttles and remote control tanks aside). The AT-AP and V-19 are good sellers, at least around these parts. Never saw much of the swamp speeder (though that may be due to being undershipped).

The ships that linger are usually Seperatists and Jedi Fighters (which often overship).

Of course, I can't give them credit for tooling up new items that never seem to arrive in stores, like that Mandalorian transport. Or for dusting off and reissuing ROTS Obi-Wan's starfighter...a vehicle that was shipped for some 3 years.

I bought and opened the new Darth Maul vintage figure today and pretty much hate it.  The neck is sculpted leaning forward too much,

Seems to be more common these days, like the Rebel Commando. Maybe it's a realistic posture for actual people, but I'd rather have the heroic default of a straight neck.

Alas, no there's Riff Tamson figure for the clone to jump...

Jet ski mode was a surprise.

Yeah, a phase 1 clone trooper helmet there, too....possibly the last time we see one on the show? Guess they wound up in surplus stores and/or were looted off battlefields.

 Other stuff at Pablo's Pawn shop:
Cato Parasitti helmet
Death Watch chest armor
Mando rocket pack
a bubble space helmet like Anakins
some helmet next to the clone helmet that I can't place

Preview is up for THE BOX!/media/trailer

11 bountry hunters and no Dengar...guess that was just a rumor after all.

Wasn't "Rako Hardeen's" helmet based on concept art Boba Fett?

Skinnier? Guess Hasbro thinks the cameras add 10 pounds.

Tonnika sisters = Pegwarmer poison like Yarna.  Kids will be who are these characters ? 

That could describe kids' reactions to some  figures already made in the vintage collection, and who cares what kids want in that regard? Hasbro's decided movie heroes is the kids line.

Ian Abercrombie, the voice of CW Palpatine passed away today at 75.  :(

Tonight's episode was decent but seemed like mostly filler, especially  Obi-Wan getting tortured and Bane being forced to land.

Did make we wish I gotten a Nikto guard figure...oh, well.

Obi-Wan almost got them all killed crash landing the ship. Another bit that seemed forced, what did he gain from it...time?

Sy Snootles cameo.

ROTS could be the troop transport walker on Felucia or whatever that Republic thing was on Mygeeto.

I think they included far too many collosal Republic ground vehicles in ROTS that could never realistically be made in 3 3/4". Didn't they know the movies were made to sell toys?  :P
