I do  miss the CLONES in Clone Wars. And heck, there was room to toss an underused Jedi in with Ahsoka, so she doesn't have to phone up Anakin and Obi-Wan every episode. Just feels like we are spinning wheels with a lot of uninteresting characters for a story arc that is cliche city. Maybe there'll be pay off next week...doubt it. This story has been at least one episode too long, and the whole premise of helping-but-not-outright-helping the Onderon Rebels is quite frankly dumb, since you know, it's a Seperatist held planet and there's whole war with the CIS going on. Did the Jedi/Republic have no plans to take the fight into enemy territory?

MTT's deploy Super Battle Droids....maybe we can expect a CW repaint of the MTT with super Battle Droids....yeah, right.  :D

Why are there twi'leks and Ithorians on this world....because....STAR WARS.

Blowing up tanks and transports in public areas....shrapnel? Never heard of it!

Good king chose neutrality...What makes a man turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?

One way shield that let's stuff in? Prevents escape but someone shoot missiles through it? What?
White girl rebel got killed. Sooo sad. So sad.

General Never Seen Before Now had a change of heart. Yay.

They the let the evil king go?

Kilani doesn't seem very special.

There was Gore in Futurama, too.  ;)

Did the black tunic officers wear the longer gloves? The jumpsuited ones did (or Hasbro thinks they did, not sure). Internet image searches seem to fail me on this.

I'm wanting the comic packs back for Tag and Bink, not because I like their stories that much but for 2 Rebel Fleet Trooper or Stormtroopers (or less so, TIE Pilots) with new heads.

Finally seeing TVC figures other than the AOTC wave at 5 Below stores.  I spotted the following today:

___  VC25 - R2-D2 with pop-up lightsaber & drink tray
___  VC26 - Rebel Commando
___  VC38 - Clone Trooper (212th Battalion)

WAVE 6 (2011 WAVE 2)
___  VC44 - Luke Skywalker (Dagobah Landing)
___  VC45 - Clone Trooper
___  VC46 - AT-RT Driver
___  VC47 - General Lando Calrissian
___  VC48 - Weequay (Skiff Master)
___  VC49 - Fi-Ek Sirch (Jedi Knight).

Stormtrooper,  AOTC Obi-Wan and Senate Guard are the other 3 figures in Wave 6 cases.  Pretty good army builder case...though I don't want any senate guards.

Warmer the temperature the more loose the joints get, especially the ball socket hips and shoulders.

Still better than those old Legends 2 packs that were made using that AOTC era deluxe C-3PO battle droid. Those things warp so easily that they are close to useless and were one reason why I didn't buy any battle droids for like 10 years.

You mean the Blu-Ray 4-pack one? Yeah, it was a tad gummy.

I've passed on TVC Battle Droid because of compatibility concerns. At BOGO, I'd probably bite the bullet if there was anything there I really wanted...

There's been so many battle droid sculpts now. I saw some Boomer damage ones on Ebay from a seller in China and then looked and noticed their hands are in "stap rider position" and wouldn't be very least i think. Never owned that release.

I think everything wrong with Ebay is related to them wanting to be seen as a real retailer and not an online auction site that everyday people can list stuff on, i.e., what made them rich.

What I didn't love so much:
Lori still being on alive, on the show, etc
Carl/Hershel's daughter burgeoning romance - blecchhh (age difference anyone?)
going through the cell blocks in the dark at the end there? What was the rush?

Carl just has a crush on whats-her-name. If it gets mutual...ick.

Yeah, the rush to secure the whole prison and doing stupid things. It's easy to second guess the characters after the fact, but the dark cell block mess seemed like a potential disaster from the get go...especially when you take the ONLY DOCTOR you have with you when your WIFE IS 9 MONTHS PREGGERS. No reason for Herschel to have gone with them on what amounted to a stumbling around in dark passage ways. And you'd think at this point they'd have learned to be suspicious of any corpse they haven't put down themselves, but success leads to carelessness

I guess this ep takes place after Grievous dies...oh, wait...

Name was KILLANEE or something. I saw it twice and that's the best I could make out.

I peak ahead and this arc last 4 episodes total. It better pick up next week.

Jedi Temple Archives reports figures are showing up in Singapore...Boba Fett with climbing backpack, exploding tan Battle Droid, light-up saber ROTS Anakin and light up blaster Sandtrooper.

That last one was a surprise, I thought he'd debut in 2013.

Meijers has vintage starfighter vehicles at $20 and Movie Heroes ones at $25 (I think). Deluxe/class 1 at $14. Until the end of the month, IIRC. Battle packs at $18....not that they have anything new here.

Got a $5 Sandtrooper at 5 Below that opened up last month. Apparently all they get is that AOTC wave (with Vader and sandtrooper repacks). I've mildly tempted by that MEGO style Darkseid they have from that failed Mattel line. They had Thundercats, too for $4.

TRU had some sale $35 on Star Wars, get a free Pod racers battle pack yesterday and today only.
