The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases
« on: June 27, 2012, 03:22 PM »
Did it scan?

I found a Renegades Cobra Commander last week that didn't scan (not found). I wasn't going to pay the $5+ that was the last mark down sticker price, since I got a Duke for $3.24 a week or so earlier.

Now Snags and Tuskens aren't "strange", because really...what isn't strange in the Star Wars universe?

Walrus Man always looks for trouble almost finds it with Luke. Losing the better part of an arm isn't "almost trouble."

Hammerhead talks to anyone that will last, a correct portrayal of a cantina drunkard.

Greedo (a money collector)...sent by a grocery clerks, to collect a bill.

Hey, I got the Tusken right!

Not crazy about getting another Fett. Repaint in Kenner colors at least...

I like how Luke and Obi-Wan seeing Snaggletooth in a bar makes him a villain.

In a better world, the third pack would be Hammerhead, Walrusman, Greedo in awesome Kenner colors. It would also retail for $9.99....hey, gonna dream, I'll dream big!

Stories like that remind me of this:

and this

Not releasing the new Naboo fighter from the get go was just foolish. Since new  tooling costs money...why aren't new mold items front loaded?

The gap between vintage and movie heroes only made the Legends replacement almost soley aimed at gift givers and kids and thus linger in stores even more. Lots of folks complained about legends, but lots of folks got snowtroopers, battle droids and clones and that spacetrooper never lingered around here.

SDCC Star Wars announcements:

The whole action figure line will be placed on hiatus until summer of 2013, so they can focus on some kiddie construction toys. The failure of Episode 1 related merchandise will be blamed. No new AOTC merchandise is planned, as the 3D release of that film will only play in select major cities and not see wide release.

No more large vehicles will be made because of low orders for the MTT, and the starfighter assortment will be cancelled, this will be revealed after the showing of a mock-up of some really awesome ship.

Lucasfilm will pull the Star Wars license from Lego so Hasbro can make Star Wars Kre-o.

Despite its success the BAD feature at Disney will be cancelled abruptly, all remaining parts to be rounded up and destroyed.

The Clone Wars cartoon will end after a 13 episode season 5. Cartoon Network announces that the new episodes will air in the show's new time slot, 4 AM on monday morning. These episodes will not be put up on

New head of LucasFilm, Kathleen Kennedy, will reveal that the Star Wars live-action t.v. show plans are official cancelled.

#01 Danz Borin
#02 Mosep
#03 Death Star Gunner (leathery suit look, not the cloth jump suit)
#04 General Willard (the ANH rebel generals get no love)
#05 Solomahal (Or whoever, one of the Lutrillians....make it so you can make both by removing the ascot)
#06 Baniss Keeg
#07 Tzivvzt
#08 Arleil Schous
#09 Reegesk (Ranat)
#10 Del Goren (The Yavin Base Rebel Guy with the headset.)

I'd probably not buy any of those if they made them, because I'll never see them.   :(  :'(  >:(

Of course, you know you'll never find the Ewok set. There will be a ton of pilots however.

They'll do the Yavin Rebel Transporter/Geonosian Speeder  packing ratio. What was that, 1 transporter per 15 Geonosian speeders?

*Slight exagerration*

That's a better number than Adam Pawlus's estimate of "Go to hell!"

Yeah, his Q&A responses have been rather terse lately.  :D

They should've toss in a recolored Wokling.

With the Yavin set...just to confuse us.  :P

I wonder how much arm twisting was required to prevent a Vader from being included in the Yavin pilots set?

Which is why they'll make Tusken Raider, Boba Fett, Snaggletooth.

Wal-Mart Tusken, repaint of Snags (I forgot his EU name) and the current battle pack Fett.

Reissue city. Slight repaint on the power droid, different colored  front lights/buttons and less paint ops than the Battlefront 2 version. Could've been an actual vintage repaint.

Why not a bronze Death Star Droid?
