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.

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).

It's just his name...Shawn Earthling.  ;) Shouldn't it be Wansh Delvaz or something?

Rest his soul? Lee Greenwood is still alive, despite my efforts.  >:D

As long as they never make Shawn Valdez, I'm cool with unique rebels.

2012 can't come soon enough.

Based on Hasbro scheduling, we've already seen everything that will actually be released in 2012.

Looking good for Princess Kneesa in 2012 too...

We will finally know where woklings come from.  ;D

Actually, I had the plush Kneesa from 83-84, I knew where they came from.  ;)

That deleted scene had all the breadth of a Bantha and just about as much smarm.

What do you think the odds are that in 2012 they'll dig out Maul's Sith Attack Speeder for the deluxe line and give it to Savage Opress. Maybe the Gungan cannon will return, too...seems less likely, though, even with Gungan set to appear on TCW.

Rumor has it that Dennis Lawson is buying all them up because he hates being in Star Wars and even petitioned to have his character removed from the Blu-Ray editions.

Or maybe I just made that up.  ;)

So, while looking at ebay auction for the Wal-Mart Dewback from a year or two ago...I gotta ask, have they changed the Dewback again (to TPM model)?

Or did they do that last time and I just forgot?

The Star Wars movies are to George Lucas what Michael Jackson's nose was to Michael Jackson. Just won't leave well enough alone until it gets ugly.  :o
