The big helmeted fool or the EU tool?

It is cool they are making 3 3/4" toys based on the 80's Masters of the Universe movie. I'd think Mattel would have the rights, though.  :P

That CW Anakin photoshop card looks awful.

Same vintage photo for Vader, now the figure matches it more. They could've done something different.

Imperial Navy Trooper is messed up. The character shown on the photo had a GREY UNIFORM.  ;)

(Or maybe it was brown  :D )

They should  do a recolor of Hoth Luke like his Kenner micro-collection versions, a red-brown vest.

I like the opening too where Savage is just randomly strangling some chick for apparently no reason. Did she spill coffee on him or something? And yet he runs away like a little girl from those scary police robots?

From the slideshow on the official Clone Wars site:

"The diner scene originally began with the waitress droid -- Marwigo -- not having much luck getting Opress's order, and passing off the customer to her human colleague, Sassi. When Sassi reaches toward Opress's amulet, he reacts violently."

Also of note:
In the script, the cook Loubo is holding a blaster to which the spaceport police droid says, "Lou! Are you crazy, pointing that thing at a Jedi?" Changing the prop into a frying pan turned this moment into a joke.

I can never read the credits when the show airs live, but I would bet anything the voice of the weird snake thing was James Hong, the very esteemed David Lopan from Big Trouble in Little China and also of Blade Runner fame. He is AWESOME, great choice.

You'd lose that bet. Ben Diskin did the voice of Morley the snake.

Toys R Us Buy 1 get 1 50% off on "all Star Wars figures, play sets and accessories". (Marvel, too, if you are interested.)

I've read the a backseat doors don't open. GI JOE's versions did (from 2004-2005). PTE's did for like almost half the price. 

Seriously, what's the point of a detailed real world vehicle that can't do the simple things?

The return of 50's style diner over the almost obligatory cantina. No quaint Irish pubs in this galaxy!

Wow. They totally ripped-off the movie Soldier.

Sucked to be the freighter guy. His ship seemed a bit more ALIEN universe like than Star Wars.

Planet was a hellacious place complete with dragons and a serpent.

Maul was Gollum and Shelob rolled into one. Dooku's something "sinister is rising" reminded me of Saruman's "a new power is arising" from The Two Towers.

Lots of good and bad players appeared, so I wonder what role they'll play, if any, in part 2.

Sir Laserlot is one step above Spector which is not saying much. He looks/reminds me of those cheap REMCO He-Man knock offs that you could only find at Woolworth's.

I bought my first Remco Warrior Beast knock-off at a K-Mart (awesome crow-headed monster in black and yellow). I remember seeing them a few places. Laserlot does sort of look like one of the Galaxy Fighters, another knock-off series.

I liked the knock-offs, they added generic good and bad characters since MOTU had no "army builders" until Horde Trooper.  The snake and reptile characters the knock-off lines always later made nice Snake-Men additions. 

The Remco Warrior Beasts had no armor, but you could give them accessory pack armor or the armor from the jet sled and stilt stalkers.
The sucky thing was Warrior Beasts/Warlord figure had plastic ball socket hips instead of rubber bands...sound better on paper, but they could break off.

I don't collect the modern MOTU. Just felt nostalgic there for a second.

1. Ann/Tann Gella
2. Kittster and Wald (Both are deserving, but if it came down to, it I'd be okay if only Wald got made.)
3. Diva Shaliqua
4. Rango Tel
5. Aehrrley Rue
7. Edcel Bar Gane (Senator)
8. Mik Regrap
9. Tendau Bendon
10. Klaatu (Jabba Guard)

I never really buy the pod racers. So why list them? Hasbro acted like Tey How was an eventual release (yeah, they'll make Security Battle Droids again, too.)

These guys were Legacy collection, but it's a good one for adding diversity to the Rebels and making another background alien.

-Pons Limbic and Major Panno heads and hands swap well.

You'll need to paint their necks or cover them up (easy with Panno's pancho...which is really a cloak...I just  the sound of"panno's pancho"  :D )

I assume that will apply to Orrinmarko, too.

One of my favorite goofy ones is the AT-AT Driver's clone head  (the coolest Clone head sculpt ever) on Jedi Luke (Endor capture).

While the MH light up guys are a little bulky they are pretty cool. The headsculpts appear like they will fit on the existing versions too. I cannot dig mine out yet but I will surly try....

Maybe you should wait until you're in a better mood.  ;)

Only 5,900 employees wordwide?

Not all the Wal-Mart have discounted vehicles, still full price at the one I went to. Battle Packs were $15, though.

We see Boba get his butt humiliated at a young age. Him and those pale skinned bald women....(Yes, Aurra isn't entirely bald).

Bossk threatening to turn Ventress over to the she couldn't gut him and the chick hunter within 2 seconds.

Strange aliens who contracted the hunters, a bit trite, really...seemingly chosen for their repulsiveness compared to the more human looking ninja folks.

It was an okay episode. For some reason I expected these past two episodes to tie into the Maul ones.

I don't think Hershel would like folks boarding up his house.  There's all that tip-toeing around the fact the main group are guests and the family there still isn't up to speed on just how bad things really are.

They need walkie-talkies, too.

 I think getting some armored bulldozers would be a could zombie clearing method, especially if you had a deep pit dug to just push them into...maybe set it on fire when it was getting full.

Heading north would mean a lot of time spent getting firewood and supplies for a long winter. And other survivors will see your smoke.

The living guys Rick shot were lazy. Instead of focusing on looting and finding a place to hold up/fortify, they threaten armed guys over something they think they have.
