So what happens when retail doesn't get anything new for months?

YOU GET NOTHING. You lose. Good day, sir!  :P

So no more online order forms apparently.  :(  It's now saying "in-pack form required". You can print "sample forms"...which is like pointless. I guess Hasbro got swamped or greed took over.

I only printed out the early "incorrect" form.  :-\ Gives me an excuse to buy something new, yeah, that's it.

I don't get why Padme was there to begin with.

The animators just thought she'd look hot in a wetsuit.  :)

One other thing I wondered is the lack of a space  conflict near Mon Calamari (like Christophsis and Ryloth). Both sides just figured...let the other side land troops...what the hey.

Star Wars Universe / Re: Star Wars on Blu-Ray

Color me idiotic - I guess I wasn't much paying attention to all of this, as I went and picked up just the OT BDs today at Target, expecting them to have the OT extra features, deleted scenes, etc. But it's just the movies. Which I assume everyone else in the world knew besides me. And of course I didn't figure this out until I popped it in the player and saw no options for extras other than commentaries.

Not sure if I want to shell out for everything PT related, as I frankly don't care about those movies much at all, but we'll see. I would like the deleted stuff for sure, despite the fact that I've seen a lot of it over the years online.

So yeah. Here's hoping Target takes back opened discs.

Some of the deleted scenes from the set are already on Youtube.

The young leader stepping up to the plate plot never ceases to make me  ::) .  (Notice how all these Star Wars planets are monarchies?)

The Mon Calamari and Quarren seem like a population of maybe a mid-sized Earth city. Sure, this was just one major city, but there's a lack of a  sense of a global scale conflict there, especially when the highest ranking officer is "Captain Ackbar".

Apparently animating Boss Nass wasn't in the budget. WEESA OVERSA BOMBAD BUDGET! "Heesa retired!"

How the Gungan energy balls work underwater without...we may never know.  :P (I have no idea how they work on land anyway...ion weapons? EMPs?)

Jar Jar hugging Meena. Ha!

Kit Fisto got his green butt kicked by Jabberjaw.  Wow. Tartakovsky was much kinder to him.

I found it all pretty so-so. But I was tired when I watched it.

Personally I don't think the UPCs are even looked at. You got to remember the people opening these envelopes are dumping out the contents and counting how many UPCs there are and tosing them in the trash. They are not looking at them closely to see if this UPC number matches their "official" list. That don't have time for that. These people are paid minimum wage to open envelopes and enter your address in the computer as fast as they can. They could care less if you included UPCs from Star Wars or from My Little Pony.

That's what you think. In fact, each UPC is scanned, these mail-ins are primarily a way for Hasbro to determined what folks are buying, and who is buying what...that's why there's  "collector, parent, child" check box on the form.

I made that up.  ;)

I'm annoyed that I wasted ink printing out an incorrect order form, on the plus side my laziness pays off since I've yet to mail my form off.

Movie Heroes / Saga Legends '12-? / Re: 2012 Movie Heroes Line
« on: September 14, 2011, 07:02 PM »
Hmm, "movie heroes".  Interesting name...  Curious though, why the change in names ultimately?  Ruling out EU all together I guess?

Get those space troopers while you can! 

Hopefully these will be the same figures we've come to know and love from LEGENDS but in attractive new packaging and at a higher price point.  :P

Saw the 30th Stalker and Cobra trooper at Wal-Mart. They scanned as "see associate..." there wasn't even a spot for GI JOE items in the store, either.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: An Ewok Update Coming... Who?
« on: September 13, 2011, 11:11 AM »
I want the dead Ewok, with built in sound feature...plays that sad music.

It's still strange they've never made the horn blowing Ewok. Or the victory drummer, since they made the drum set (half-assed set in the accessory pack).

Rebelscum reports that AT-RT with Boil, BARC with Jesse and Freeco speeder with Obi-Wan are appearing in the newer packaging (now without the backdrop  :( ) So much for getting rid of the older peg warmers! (Only Target made that effort, though.) Jesse and even Boil I can understand, but if they had to keep shipping Freecos, they should've done the Clone Trooper one.

Got General Calrissian from TRU, vintage sale $7. Cuz there wasn't much to choose from.

Have to say, if I had it to do over again...I'd leave him on the pegs. Just not an especially good figure. On paper it's great, in reality...Groucho Marx eyebrows, the cape scaled for a 5" Batman figure, the elbows designed so he cannot come close to reaching his holster with his right hand. The "big bonus" articulation, ball jointed calves that just make getting him in sitting pose awkward, unless he's mounted on a horse, which I think Hasbro thinks he rode one, based on the POTF2 version.

Since it's 9/11's tenth anniversary...I'd say "truthers" and apologists for murderous whackos piss me off. 

If that's too political for this forum, well...I don't care. Delete it.

Collect All 92! / Re: Squid Head
« on: September 10, 2011, 10:55 PM »
The only major thing the POTJ one had over the Kenner one is a more accurate headsculpt.  Kenner made those soft good well, made a bit player into an action figure. One of their best.

No new figs at my TRU. Saw the Assassin Spider droid battle pack, though. I think the droid could be more articulated. So I passed.

Got Rishi Outpack Attack battle pack for $17 at Wal-Mart. Those commando droids seem even smaller out of the package (never owned any before now).  :-\

Target's $18 sale on the Battle Packs shows that no one likes Obi-Wan again...8 sets at one store and 7 of them were Geonosis packs. (I'd be inclined to get that one but I just won the Geonosian on ebay by himself).
