Dude they dug that thing up from 2005, dusted it off, and started pumping out more clone #6's?  Oh that is terrible.  It wasn't a good sculpt then.  Clone 41 came out right after that and was vastly superior in every way.  That was 7 years ago.

And to dig up a debate from 7 years was NOT superiour in every way, just most ways. The #6 clone could actually sit down, the #41 risked tearing the hip joints or the hips becoming extremely loose (which is also why the carded 2005 ROTS AT-RT driver sucked for its intended purpose).

The Jet Pack clone mold is superiour to both in its ability to sit while not having wide-hips, but from the waist up has pre-2000 levels of articulation (Hasbro likes to make deluxe figures worse than single carded ones, see Captain America).

Of course that didn't matter to folks who wanted rows of rows of identical figures standing on a shelf.

If my eyes don't deceive me, I would swear that Hasbro just brought back clone trooper #6 with a $10 plus tax price tag.

It's all a bad dreaaaaam.

Based on pictures at Galactic Hunter, it seems that Shock Trooper has just the one shoulder armor piece with the logo on it. I'd think they'd use the one without the logo, but if you are gonna reissue something no one wants, you might as well make it inaccurate, too.

I'm also amused they've bothered to keep painting the rifle's stock brown, too. All the "rising costs" and "save money" talk and they keep paint apps that few care about.

Preview is up for A Friend in Need (Death Watch episode), but its the same clip we saw months ago.

Nute should be deluxe figure with his walking throne.

Yeah, they'd gamble on a $20 Nemoidian.

Attack of the Clones Blu-ray 4-pack, another Wal-Mart clearance...checked vintage, still not on clearance (some Wal-Marts do have them half off).

Saw some dad talk his kid out of getting R5-D4 (!) and into getting clearance legends/clone wars since it was a better deal. See how seperate lines fail the non-collector?

I don't get why the Emperor sent Dooku to get them to execute Anakin. I mean, that's his future apprentice he has been grooming, why would he want Dooku to take him out all of a sudden? Maybe I missed something but that struck a really false note somehow.

I guess the idea is that the strong would survive. If Anakin is worthy of the Sith, he would escape execution.  Recall in the microseries that they greenlight Ventress going after Anakin...Sidious saying it matters not if she succeeds.

Finally, the last part of the Zygerian arc.


The ruthlessness of the good guys in this was...awesome, though Rex's action was questionable compared what happened in the Umbarra arc.

Plo Koon seems to be the most used back-up Jedi (Yeah, I know, Filoni likes him), that's cool...but it might be nice to see someone else sometime.

Why did the Z-9(?) fighters have a hard time with the Zygerian fighters? Or was Matchstick having a bad day?

One part I didn't buy was the  queen getting some last words...your windpipe is crushed but you get to hold on for a minute for that dramatic line (Despite your windpipe being crushed!). Either Dooku force choked her to death completely or he didn't.  Maybe it was internal bleeding...heck if I know.

Anyway, solid ending to an uneven arc. The first part was mixed bag, as was the second...with our heroes seeming incompetent. They redeemed themselves in part 3...mostly. Liked it more than the Mon Calamari story, though.

You and I have different definitions for "cheap".  :P

The bad part of overseas sellers being aware of certain figures' after market value. Otherwise, those would be like under $5. Probably have  storage crates full of them.

I've already decided that I'm going to peel off all the character debut stickers at the store and stick them on Darth Maul.

That's committing fraud!  :P

"I thought I was getting a debut character, but it wasn't! What's Hasbro gonna do about this?  :'( "

That would be "Commander, tear this ship apart until you find those plans, and bring me the passengers...I want them alive!"

Again "commander". Is it any wonder Kenner called them Imperial commander, AT-AT Commander (even though that guy had an onscreen name and rank), Rebel Commander and the inaccurate Star Destroyer Commander?

The AT-RT seems the more popular of the two, though I've seen them both in the past week.

So, really the after the fact ranks  are what's wrong, like most EU stuff.  ;) No one considered the dialouge exchange, that an admiral would be telling a general that the general's starfleet is at risk.

Yes, "commander" absolutely a liberally used of the silly that there seems to no ranks between captain and general in the Rebel Alliance, (there are, but none used onscreen) and the Alliance gives out general titles like they were party favors.
