Shadows of the Dark Side / Re: Walmart "New" TIE Bomber

No. I was going to but was distracted by something else and forgot. I may check that Wal-Mart again, because they actually had Battle Droid 2 packs. Wal-Mart around here are notorious for having stuff in the clearance area that is still full price, like GI JOE, which apparently they've dropped but are in no hurry to unload.

Received my order of Wave 6 from HTS today - I'm now officially done with Wave 6 - I keep hoping that Wave 5 will come back in stock or I'll find it at a Target or TRU...

I finally saw some Wave 5 in a Target. Got Death Star Escape Luke, R5-D4 and Yoda. I stocked up during K-Mart's buy-one, get-one-free sale in November, so these will only cost $4.50 which, for reworks, is fine by me.

That's just like stealing!  :o  (I'm kidding...but I didn't know any store's receipts lasted that long.)
 
I finally refound Ackbar at a Meijer, and bought him. They had another one without spots on his head and left arm. Finally saw sail barge R2, too. But cannot bring myself to spend $8 on him.

I went to a Wal-Mart that I hadn't been before that's within reasonable driving distance (which is less and less due to gas prices), and found 9 of these TIE Bombers on the clearance aisle...for $39 each.  :P

In the grand tradition of Wal-Mart I expect them to remain that price each time I go back, until one day they disappear with never sign of being marked down.

The Tungori RFT reminds me of Henry Fonda.

Trannies stealing lightsabers...I heard that happened at San Diego Comic Con 2009.
  ;)

I'm curious why the wookies need a bounty hunter ship, they don't have their own? Reuse existing characters and ship models...that's why. Answered my own question...wheee.

Padawan Lost and Wookie Hunt. (I won't write their x-rated parody names in my head)

Barely there Turbo Tank cameo! Felucia! Yay! Dwarf Spider Droids (time for an updated one, Hasbro!)

Jedi don't kill out of anger. Even if the dude will be trying to kill you again later?

Racist episode, all-in-all. Reptilian aliens once again portrayed as cruel killers and mammalians as noble creatures.

Seriously, Bossk is some how the more civilized of his kind? (Gha Nachkt moreso, at least he was just a treacherous junk dealer)

Takeel died...maybe he'll be edited out of the 3D ANH. Okay, okay...all Sniviians look alike.

Sort of a cop out that Chewbacca was the only prisoner on that landing ship, like we needed to know that Ahsoka and company didn't accidently kill anyone.

Chewbacca sure likes to toss people off of high places.

Plo Koon gets to offer the sage wisdom while Yoda is silent. I'm not complaining, forget that little green snot. Plo is the man.

Problem with this two parter...I saw it last year in theaters as PREDATORS. Also, we did the Ahsoka on the run from pursuers in the last arc. Replace droids with Trandoshans, warden with head Trandoshan, clones with younglings, Even Piel with Chewbacca. Maybe they should've spaced out some of the arcs more.


Really an odd season where previous bad-guy poster boy Grievous appears like once. Also, once again, I'm blown away with their follow up on Death Watch.  :P

The Vintage Collection / Re: What Would Be "The End" For You?
« on: March 29, 2011, 12:16 AM »
I'd say when figure started costing more than $_______, but I've sold out on that stance many times.

Actually, finances aside, what's happening locally is more of what will make me quit, not finding anything in stores. I'm not an "order a case" collector, nor will I pay more than retail via online merchant or reward losers who scalp action figures. If I can't find most of it in stores, forget it. I want to see what I'm buying. Essentially that's what happened near the end of POTF2 with the EU wave. Never saw a one, and that ended my completist era.

Odd thing at Wal-Mart today, some older Clone Wars releases rang up at $7.88 (Shaak Ti and young Boba Fett), but oddly both had UPC stickers over their normal UPC's. A lot of the figures had those stickers, though most scanned at $6.50.  Hell, anyone could put those UPS labels on Vintage to get figures for $6.50, using the self-scan checkout (assuming the store has one), who'd even notice? Not that I'm recommending it.  They do have cameras everywhere these days.

I don't know who found vintage cheaper at Target, but they are not in this area.

Recent stop at a local Wal-Mart saw that the Legends and Clone Wars were rolled back to $6.50. Vintage still $8.99. Nothing I wanted from any of the three lines, anyway, though.

1541
Years ago when Vaders were everywhere (more so than usual), I'd sometimes put them at the front of every peg. I was hoping someone would buy them or maybe it was a mild prank for the next collector browsing the aisle. A dozen pegs all showing Vader. Ha.

Collect All 92! / Re: Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard Disguise)
« on: March 23, 2011, 08:46 AM »
The vintage had a better helmet, or better fitting one, than the POTF2 one.

Never got the Saga version.

Lando's role in Han's rescue was a let down. Struggles with one guard and nearly falls in the sarlacc, to be saved by blind Han Solo. Redemption reasons aside, Lando almost might as well have not been there at all.

1543
Is Dengar a bad figure? Or you just already have one? I never got around to getting him.

1544
Their carry forward policy is strange, especially since most of the new figures are one-per-case, except the new Anakin, which gets carried forward!

I'd hate to be a kid collecting this line. I In the old days, there was time to save you money and buy what you wanted. Nowdays, a month goes by and some of the stuff is gone from stores forever.

1545
Wouldn't want Jet taking case space away from Commander Cody, Capt. Rex and ARF Trooper, would we?

Really, ARF Trooper...they could at least ship the camo one, since apparently it's the only style of generic clone they will reship.
