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. 

Yeah, I found the wave again at another Wal-Mart, but the old stock of vintage were not $4. Knowing the trick wouldn't work I bent all the deleted scene figure's cardbacks in anger and left.   >:D

Okay, I just left.   :)

I might be wrong...the next episode could take place before the Rako Hardeen 4-parter. But I was under the impression it's been straight continuity since the middle of season 3.

Sandstorm Leia
Sandstorm Lando
Mon Cal Pilot
Clone Trooper (Utapau)

$4 each.

Anyone wanna refresh my memory how to clean those yellow stormtrooper helmets?

One wal-mart still had 2 At-At Commanders. One had seven R5-D4's, escape Lukes and Ceremony Han's, plus Grees.

I got 3 of the 5 figures from the wave for $4. I should've gotten more, but I figured it wouldn't work and I was annoyed by Cracken's bad paint ops. It almost didn't work, because the cashier scanned the two vintage stormtrooper through at $4. Then the 3 deleted figures wouldn't scan. She looked and said "'Empire Strikes Back' and 'Return of the Jedi', not the same." Then she manually entered one of the ROTJ ones, nothing came back. Eventually she scanned a stormtrooper 3 more times. I said nothing. Just let it play out.

The next store I went to had no older figures left, so I couldn't try it again. Then the next had none of  wave 11.

All episode 1 figures still scanned at $8.96 or whatever. Not that I bought any.
