Yeah, Adventure People were great.

Yes, the parachute were quite good.

We had the safari family with the great truck, animals, cages.

I remember getting the space shuttle for a birthday. It found its way into the Star Wars universe.

Despite the non-violent themes, we'd always work them into violent scenarios giving them GI JOE and Sgt. Rock guns.

Adventure People was ahead of its time in its frequent inclusion of female figures.

This deal is getting worse all the time.

The deployable droids have stands  permenantly attached to their feet...blech. And no backpacks. Suprisingly their guns aren't molded on their hands.

From Jedi Temple Archives:

The battledroids: 16 pcs. stationary ones without backpacks and 4 "pilot battle droids" with backpacks. The other 4 stationary droids are with Obi-Wan in the box window. Speaking about Obi-Wan, he is the Ep.1 version Obi-Wan without the soft goods tunic from 1999 replaced with plastic. His head still comes with the soft braid. He has no wrist articulation. The bottom of the feet has the 1999 stamp on it.

The 4 battle droids are newly made. The backpacks are molded together to the body. These droids only have 5 points of articulation, just like a potf2 figure would have. The 20 other battle droids all have molded bases (makes it easy to stand) bear 2011 LFL stamp markings. The biggest surprise for me is that they have only 1 point of articulation LOL. Only the right arm can move. The left hand is molded to the hip.

That's right the pilot droids suck, too.

Really for $160, all the droids should be at least 5 points of articulation.

I recall them talking about the Flying Wing from ROTLA, but I wonder if it even made mock-up stage. It sure seems like they'd have had more vehicles planned.

I guess Alderaan is one the planet they hadn't fought on yet.

Apparently it's Onderon, which is almost as close to sounding like Alderaan as it gets.  Another comic book EU planet makes its CW debut.

This season's almost obligatory warrior chick who will never see toy form.

Not much Nothing seen featuring other non-lead Jedi.

Major plot points that probably happen next spring.

So business as usual.  :P

Freeco speeder without canopy for 25 cents at a yard sale. Never owned one, very tight leg room.

And POTF2 AT-ST, Speeder bike with scout, wicket and logray for $10 total. (different sale).

Some of these have appeared at Marshalls for $6, IIRC. Scorpion and Sub-Zero. Raiden in the larger size.

The Vintage Collection / Re: Vintage Collection Rumors

The TRU still has a few of the "Shadows of the Dark Side" packaged AT-AT's.

Dunno if this signals the upcoming end of Vintage or what, repackaging things out there in one last money grab, because they sure could wait on the AT-AT and the Falcon until closer to when OT movies are rereleased.

Since my walmarts never carried thier Royal Starship droids, I ordered online and picked them up there. How come walmarts get to choose to carry or not carry their own exclusives?

I wondered that years ago when people in other parts of the country were not only getting Wal-Mart exclusives  that never appeared at any of the 3 locations near me, but even getting them on clearance

I wrote most of them off. I'm not going  to pay more than retail because the NATION'S LARGEST TOY RETAILER won't stock its own exclusives.

The only thing I gave in and bought was the black/red GI JOE MMS from the Rise of Cobra movie line, because I never had the vintage one. Had the local stores stocked it and the sets released with it, I might have bought the other sets, too. 

Buy one, get one 40% off all Star Wars at Toys R Us.

Downside is I think some of their sales ended today on stuff like the Y-Wing, rebel transport speeder, geonosian speeder, etc.

And the other downside, my local one is either too worked over or never gets anything new. The gas money I've wasted going there I could've used to buy stuff online.

1313. Order 66.

What other scary sounding numbers are left?

I think I can say based on the images in the link below that the new Tarkin sucks.

I'd even say the POTF2 version looks better in some ways. But I'll probably buy the new one anyway.

I got an 80's one past weekend free at a yard sale, slightly discolored.

I like the modern vintage style figure, but got tired of the Vintage style's dirty shoes and weathered mid-section. The elbows never bend in enough, either.

Looking at the movie stills, the pouches on the mid section should be bigger. Yet, I know Hasbro hasn't made them such, because they are visually the worst aspect of the costume.  It's like the exposed black body suit areas on a stormtrooper. In the movies, they certainly have more visible "body glove" than the toys usually do, but it's not doing the characters any favors.

Yeah, the Rex I saw today looked like bad weathering. Bad weathering on a bad figure.

Saw the deluxe Republic Attack Fighter thingie. the paint ops on Anakin's head were about dollar store knock-off level. And there's a hole in the plastic on left hand at the wrist . One of the worst quality control failure figures I've seen from Hasbro in some time.
