The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Wolf Pack Ultimate Gift Set

Why not the soft goods deluxe Plo Koon.

Anyway, nice to see something new for CW. (I'll pass on unless it hits clearance, the reduced articulation was a deal breaker for me and the CW line.)

They could do Gunner Luke in MOVIE HEROES, so he can include an oversized spring action weapon that vaguely resembles a quad gun cannon...or reuse the Clone Trooper one that's backpack mounted.

Another good one is Swamp Squirt R2-D2 from Dagobah. Real water squirting action. Great ideas. By "great", I mean I shouldn't post them.

Han: Now that vintage is on hold (because we'd want this on a vintage card), a Stormtrooper disguise Han Solo...ball jointed hips.

Luke- Dagobah with his shirt open, scene where Yoda raises the X-Wing. Accurate short stormtrooper disguise version? Post bacta recovery luke in orange jump/flight suit? They could include the flight helmet and vest as removable accessories.

Vader: ROTS redo with accurate shoulder armor. That is, the shoulders that aren't seperate pieces, this would limit poses, but it's all about accuracy, right?  :P  Even better if you pressed his chest and he screamed "NOOOOOOOO!"

Anakin: Realistic season 3 Clone Wars...isn't that just ROTS with a different head? Well, yes.

Palpatine: Declaration of the Empire

Kenobi: Naboo underwater rebreather...because we didn't get enough EP1 Obi-Wan!  Or Ghost Obi-Wan.

Chewbacca: Wind blown Hoth, scene specific. How about Life Day Robe.

C-3P0: AOTC...arena one with maybe better deco?

Lando: Imperial Guard disguise from SOTE? Or Ewok Celebration...stick him in a 5 pack...Victory on Endor set....with dancing Ackbar? Squeeze his legs together and he busts a move?

R2-D2: Sensor scope...make it accurate!

I would probably buy very few of these.

I thought that was debris.

There's still no shot of Snowtroopers and Hoth Rebel troopers together, though.

I have to point out there was no TIE pilot seen in ESB.

Tortured to pieces 2-1B from Jabba's dungeon?

Burning Jawa Corpse?

Screaming falling Emperor with transpart stand so you can have him in falling pose?

Got a 25 cent yard sale landspeeder. Missing the windshield. They are always missing that. Sometimes the rear middle jet engine, but always that windshield.

Hurry, there's more Amazon preorders available. I bite the bullet and got two Royal Guards, figuring they'd be the hardest to get on the aftermarket down the road. I talked myself out of the Republic Trooper for now...seeing as he's from whole time era that I have one figure from that I haven't even opened..

They really must not want anyone besides collectors to own a CW Season 3 Ahsoka.

I dunno if I'd shell out $10 for Cliegg Lars. Maybe if I decided to to a dio of him being beaten by Tusken Raiders.  >:D

Those 3 packs are spiffy! 

Hearing The Kmart has this line on clearance and some pretty good deals.

$5 figures and $8 smaller vehicles (Ninja dune buggy and fangboat). I didn't check the motorcycles. They never carried the larger vehicles here.

1. Ann and Tann Gella
2. Kittster and Wald
3. Tikkes
4. Gilramos Libkath
5. Umbaran (3D)
6. Nute Gunray (ROTS)
7. Mosep
8. Solomahal
9. Tzivvzt
10. Baniss Keeg
11. Toryn Farr
12. Sergeant Doallyn
13. Ishi Tib (Palace)
14. Vedain
15. Jaxxon

Toys R Us sale, Free Movie Heroes figure with purchase of any Star wars action figure, vehicle or role play toy purchase of $30+

Not that there's a lot of desirable figure from that series...even "free". Maybe you might get lucky and find wave 2.

I don't collect modern MOTU, but never go for that "true fans support the line" stuff.  If a "true fan" unconditionally buys whatever junk they put out for whatever price, I'd be happy not to be a true fan of anything.

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.
