EU figures are either scarce (Scorch, Revan, Malek, Fordo, concept art, some comic packs, some Force Unleashed) or flop (90's SOTE, many comic packs, some Force Unleashed).

Though, it's hard to tell these days.

I didn't buy anything but at TRU, some woman shopping for her grandson asked me what a Mace Windu was, so I loaded her cart with Wilrow Hoods.

THAT'S GONNA BE A HAPPY KID COME CHRISTMAS!  ;D

Yeah, there's never anything worth getting. Almost got saga legends, but buying the same stuff over and over when you can't find new stuff you want isn't collecting, just army building out of frustation.  :-\

Star Wars figures 2 for $12.99 at Toys R Us today (and yesterday), they show vintage in the ad.

Krell's demeanor seems un-Jedi like. And why did Palpatine recall Anakin?

I gotta wonder if Krell won't get fragged by the 501st.

Umbarans need breathing apparatus but the clones, Anakin and Krell don't?

Kenobi's first appearance in awhile.

Watching the preview, the first CW AT-RT drivers appear (as a sort of ARF trooper/AT-RT driver hybrid) and in 501st deco, too.

I've split my votes between Jaxxon and Mosep....er....I mean I've only voted once and it was for Jaxxon.  8)

Or Jabba Glob.

It really isn't that serious guys. Buy the damn thing or don't, to suggest swapping is insanity.

I thought it was clear that I was kidding (stealing/fraud is a crime). Most collectors will grin and bear (buy) it, or wait it out (sale) or customize an extra Han-Taun.


1255
Solution. Buy both sets. Swap Han's Taun-Taun for Luke's, and return "Luke's Taun Taun" to the store. Parents/kids won't notice a cracked tusk, and collectors who get the wrong beast will merely return it  to the store.

Okay, that's wrong... ;) But it really wouldn't surprise me if this hasn't happened already.

$5 coupon good for 2 days, they don't want anyone using it on vintage.

Eventually, maybe, i was exagerrating with "never",  but in a line that's been going 16 years...eventually might be 2 years, might be 7. Over 10 years after episode 1's release, and we are getting Ben Quadrinaros and others. Sure, the movie was the least popular...but still...some 12 years.

But that leaves me scratching my head on others - especially Kneesa.  She was rumored forever ago as coming with TVC Wicket, I am pretty sure Hasbro said for certain that she was dropped for costing.  So I would think her figure would be as good to go as say the Nogrhi - so why include her on the list? 

It's rigged. Or "staged" is the word, like Professional Wrestling/sports entertainment.  :-X

Probably half of the ones listed are either planned, almost ready to go, or would take minimal effort. Others would never be made: Jaxxon, Joruss, Plagueis, but were allowd in the final 20 to make it look like a real fan's choice poll.

I'd take almost any unmade character over a remake. By almost, I mean "NOT JOCASTA NU" and iffy on Cleigg Lars, both deserve figures....to me any movie character deserves a figure. But would I shell out $9 for them, not likely.

I'm tired of Sam Witwer. Also, Clancy Brown, Miguel Ferrer and a few others. Good for them getting work, but cartoon villains are starting to sound the same like they did in the 70's and 80's.

Padishah Emperor of the Known Universe Shaddam Corrino IV does voice-over work for cartoons?  :o

News to me. Great news!


You are thinking of the late Jose Ferrer, Miguel's father.

Miguel Ferrer was in The Stand, Robo-Cop and played the Weather Wizard in the unaired live action Justice League pilot (you can see it on youtube, it's painfully bad)
