The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: CW Deluxe Figure & Vehicle Line

Wal-Mart exclusives, perhaps that's why no mention. Or did they mention exclusives? I can't remember. They are rounding out the second Geonosis Battle, though so much of it is exclusives.

What episode is the AT-RT from?

Not shown in their ads, but Target has the Geonosis Arena 2 packs for $6.99! (Yes, technically those Legacy releases...)

I actually found Series 2 sets, too. Where had they been for these past months?

Target this week has select Star Wars (Thor and Iron Man) figures $6.99 each. ARF Trooper is shown, which says to me "NOT VINTAGE", but  who knows.

K-Mart has $6.99 figures, the ad shows Legacy carded Boba Fett  ???

TRU has 50% off Battle packs (looks like it's just the Legacy ones again) and the Y-Wings, as per usual they show what you wish they'd have (the hoth speeder bikes and the Imperial ARC 170), but will not have.

Meijer has Thor figures for $5 this week. Take that, Target.

Latest rumors from Rebelscum and Jedi Temple Archives
The Clone Wars
Based on the popular TV show, here are a pair of exclusives from the show:

Commander Blackout Figure

Assassin Spider Droid & Clone

The Vintage Collection...(possibly the "Shadows of the Dark Side")

Video Game 5 Figure Pack

Trench Run Scene Pack

Basic figures:

CW70: Clone Trooper Corporal Comet
CW71: Chewbacca
CW72: Sugi
CW73: ARC Trooper Commander (Yellow)
CW74: Tarfful

Delta Squad (Boss, Fixer, Scorch, Sev)
Maridun Defense (Commander Bly, Lok Durd, Tee Watt Kaa, Wag Too)
Kamino Leaders (Commander Colt, ARC Trooper Commander, ARC Trooper Captain, ARC Trooper Lieutenant)
Vassek Infiltration (Kit Fisto, Commander Fil - other figures unknown)

Batle pack list sounds the most like fanboy daydreaming. Revisit a season one 2-parter with 3 all new figures, and no main characters included?

I'm tempted to go looking for these, but I'm afraid I'll find one.  :P (Space is an issue.)

Went to TRU today, they actually had a vintage stormtrooper, but with the greening helmet it's not even worth the half-off price of $5 to me. Their Clone Wars and legends selection wasn't much better. Even with the sale the Endor 4 packs come out to like $6 a figure, good, but not great (as in, if the sets were the $25 they should be, with one at half off).

But clearance is included in the sale. Got an Evolutions Rebels Pilots II and an Amidala set for around $24. 

TOY R US sale tommorrow 15th and Saturday the 16th only, buy one, get one half off all Hasbro Star Wars vehicles, figures and role-play items.

Sy Snootles probably wouldn't make my top 20 list of most wanted figures, actually.

The mention of deleted scene figures doesn't cover a whole lot of ground (remaining  ROTJ sandstorm characters), unless there's some scenes no one knows about. I'm thinking original Sy has a better chance, then say the Amidala family from AOTC.

So the latest rumor is Darth Maul, Jar Jar Binks and R2-A5 being the second half of this wave.

R2-A5 is the Mos Eisley astromech droid that was removed from ANH and replaced by a Ronto's leg that looked bad.

I guess that's what they meant by deleted scene figures. I just hope they make original edition Sy Snootles so some folks can eat space-crow.  ;)

The Meijer sale is $6 for Clone Wars figures and $7 for Legends and Vintage. They haven't gotten any new vintage since the ROTJ waves, at least around here. I did see some Rebel Commandos.

Aqua Droid and Magna Guards were scene in the Season 4 preview, so it's a safe bet that Hasbro will ignore that and keep shipping ARFS.  :P

Funny thing, their main character reshipping policy makes sense, but there's a Target near me with a solid peg of the new Obi-Wan, the new, second-half of season 3 version. (But no other newer figure from recent cases...maybe one Cade Bane with Todo).

1557 is back online with some coupons for the Easter season.

$2 off any Star Wars purchase of $10 or more.  more for other toy lines as well.

One coupon per computer it seems. I tried deleting cookies and temp files. Maybe if I uninstall their stupid coupon printer program.

I agree, it's silly that Wookie would have  energy weapons, escape pods and helicopters but not even interplanetary shuttles (not having massive space cruisers, I could believe, but something interstellar/hyperdrive capabile hardly seems out of character).

I was just looking at the Episode Guide for "Wookiee Hunt", and didn't realize that one of the trophies in the Trandoshan's ship was a very familiar looking crystal skull - kind of a neat easter egg.  I guess I missed it on the initial viewing.

Trandoshans can hunt in the spaces between spaces.  :o

$6 Clone Wars figures at Meijers stores next week. I know Meijers covers a limited area, but in the past I got sick of sales reports at Ollies, Fred Meyer and the ever annoying Ross mentions (where you can buy cancelled toys for a nickel and sell them on ebay for $500). So this is payback.  ;)

Anyway, I don't know if it includes Legends.

Some Lego sale at Toys R Us next week, spend $30 get one of those blind packed minifigs free. I think the Mando and Clone minifig packs (or whatever) are on sale, too.

Seems to straightforward to have that many from that one story. Also, the implied battle droid two-pack (OOM and droid) for Clone Wars sounds too good to be true.

I'd believe Echo, maybe Gallia. Keeli is so so, an easy repaint but they aren't making the characters he was seen with (But then they made Mando cop and Satine, etc, so that's probably irrelevant). Speaking of such, I'd expect Greedo to be made before they got around to Citadel characters, ones that require new tooling, anyway. And the Mortis folks, too...but I'm thinking too much in order of episode aired.
