So a buncha people in fancy robes and gowns. And Lars and Kid Fett.

So the difference between 2012 and 2013 is that we swapped out a Wookie?

It's a sign that nepotism ain't just a river in France.  There are more arena Jedi, but they probably didn't want more than one female in set. Still, there's tons of EU types fans might want.

Maybe. They've also said somethings are planned that never do come to pass (Mortis trilogy characters, Pong Krell).

It seems like the video game stuff sells through fast, except the big Clone Wars guy. I didn't see Force Unleashed 5 packs linger much compared to Battle of Endor pilot sets. Hottest figures on the aftermarket are often game characters.

I heard Ben Affleck has like a 15 appearance deal as Batman. So one movie, and then some monster truck shows.

Nice work. I thought the green hands were a bit of stretch for any licensed product.

I remember that Jay Leno/Elvis guy....ugh.

My first thought, too. From what I can tell the bend-ems Jawa never made it past prototype/sample stage. Haven't found a pic of it yet.

Is the Sentinel the figure that was supposedly modelled after Atha Prime?

If so, I still need that.

Yes, that's him. Atha Prime was based on Royal Guard concept art, IIRC.

The figure is essentially a "salt shaker" with 3 joints, but still cool looking. Light-pipe eyes, too.

Only vintage figure find all summer, a worn Hoth Luke for around 25 cents.

Saw a Star Destroyer playset for $20, missing the escape hatch....not sure the electronics. Stickers were so-so. It was sort of tempting. The guys selling it were like reseller/scalper types, whose seemed to be stuck with mostly 90's stuff that they refuse to liquidate at prices that any knowledgable collectors would be willing to pay. They set up a few times every year apparently. You can tell someone isn't really interested in selling stuff when their used mass market books are overpriced. That's the type of stuff that other people leave by the curb when their sale is over.

Got the anti-Hailfire droid battle pack figures loose, missing some accessories, at a garage sale. Guns are no big deal, but the missing clone helmet sucks.  Though, I shouldn't complain at about 25 cents a figures.  ;D

Got a box load of loose figures at a moving sale, mostly POTF, but some Episode 1, Saga 1 and Tartakovsky Clone Wars as well. Haven't even finished going through the box. Finally got some of the original 90's EU figures, Thrawn,  Dark Empire Luke, Mara Jade,  young Emperor and a Sentinel (had one already, MOC). They are decent, Luke and Palpatine seem less preposed than their comic pack versions (which is why I skipped the comic pack).

Nike's fault for naming their shoe with a number.  :P

A few years ago, I sold some chintzy plastic NFL team football helmet collectibles once and forgot to put size (not knowing there's different sizes/scales) or that "penny" comparison photo people do. On the day the auction was ending, some guy sends a questions asking what size they were.  I replied with approximate measurements, and records showed I did. He had bid on them. Paid for them. And I shipped. Then he got buyer's remorse when he discovered they weren't the ones he collected. Threatened to open a case unless he was totally refunded including shipping. I told him my eBay messages showed I replied to his question before the auction ended, and eBay doesn't cover buyer's remorse. Never heard another thing from him or eBay. 

I also think the chance of a Padme Funeral figure is around 0%...

You are probably right, Scott, but she would be ideal for Hasbro's new stance on limited articulation.  :P

includes Funeral Padme and Pallbearer Jar-Jar Binks.

When asked  they've said outright that no more The Old Republic figures are planned.
