The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Mandalorian Gunship?
« on: July 20, 2011, 05:31 PM »
Hard to tell too much, looks like a kid-safe version of the fighter. Multiple seating?

It's the Mandalorian shuttle from THE CLONE WARS.

Scroll down here for more  TRENCH RUN set pictures http://www.lichtgeschwindigkeit.de/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=7678

X-Wing has been altered a bit. Vader's TIE seems to have not been (no removable cockpit seat), and that sure looks like a Saga 2006 Vader included in the set.  ::) I suppose no one is buying it for the figure.

I recently got a Vader TIE at a yard sale for $2. It was missing its missiles...maybe I should get this set for the missiles.  :P

  (Combine that with fact you use sub-standard plastic for the helmet and you end up with the FIRST peg warming army builder)

Someone forgot about the Nemoidian Soldier from ROTS and the Naboo Trooper from 2006's Saga collection.  Actually, over the years some Legends releases, including stormtroopers, scout troopers and clone trooper have pegwarmed, though, those were rereleases.

The time TRU clearances anything is usually "waaay past anyone giving a damn". They hung onto Trek and Terminator Salvation stuff longer than anyone, and still have the stuff lingering at clearance.

....although it irks me that they don't actually refer to him by name on the package.

I wonder if it's not to save on trademarking.

Maybe it's to subliminally urge people to squad build him since he's given a generic designation.  :P

Maybe, but at $13 per figure (I assume, maybe it's $15 now)...I won't get him at all unless they do a freebie promotion like the last TRU exclusives (Though, I never got them when they did that promo, either.)

We think in collector terms. Some main players/standard army builders should reship, but not at 2/3rds of a case more like 1/3. And since new figures are usually one per case, collectors scoop them up, so there's certain characters kids or their parents never see. And that's a shame, too. It doesn't foster a new generation of collectors.

With a new Rex coming, the old mold needs to be completely retired. Cody needs a hiatus, too until he gets a new figure. And there's newer ARF Troopers, as well.

Target Geonosis Spec ops/Geonosian two pack for $7.49...with tax, almost $8. I knew stashing it at when it was marked 30% off was a wise move...I mean, I'm kidding. That would be wrong.  :-X 

Anyway, check your stores.

Yay, the Jump Trooper and Evo Trooper didn't do much for me the first two times. There's something too EU video-gamey about them (those shoulder pads for one), and Evo's elbow suck for two handed weapons poses. Maybe the other trooper is the one they pulled from last year, semi-transparent stormtrooper.

1405
Compare that to the image we've seen and it looks like the head might be a little underscaled.

No, not underscaled...Hasbro would say they are just using "heroic proportions".  :P

1406
Going by the Po Nudo figure, prequel Aqualish have completely different hands than either set Ponda has, two big fingers and a thumb.

1407
Troopers do get problematic. That Terminator endoskeleton-looking EU BAD goes for good money on ebay. Likewise the Darktrooper do-over.

The idea of a "create your own character" has merit. Swappable parts to make Sith, Jedi or bounty hunters (or Senator..ha-ha!). That would be neat. Pack the alien/human head and hands together like the astromech head and middle foot. Maybe the arms would include gloved hands for another option.

Only clone wars figure I can find that was released in 2011 is season 3 Obi-Wan.

Most recent vintage I can find are  leftovers of the AOTC wave, and those are uncommon (I never saw Zam Wessel at all), usually Super Battle Droid or Obi-Wan.

I can't even catch a break on clearance. Hit three Targets, no marked down deluxe...which never seemed to sell before...but *poof* gone at a mere 30% off.

On a seperate note, has anyone found the season 3 Ahsoka figure nearly impossible to find?!?!

I found it back in march, but didn't like the paint job on the one I saw. "I'll get a better one when I see them again"

Yeah, right...3 months later...never saw another one. I hate this hobby sometimes, and I'm not even a completist.

I don't care about it much myself. The mini carded mouse droid and Salacious Crumb are amusing, but that's all. I'll get the rebel if he appears in stores.
