Star Wars Universe / Re: 'Star Wars' in 3-D?
« on: March 4, 2011, 08:07 AM »
February, there's a way to avoid competition. I'm curious how well it will do.

I gotta wonder if they'll make it to all 6 films before the 3D trend tapers off.

I was laid off work for 6 weeks when that promo happened, didn't buy anything, didn't send off for anything.  :(

Don't worry, based on my local store, TRU never has squat. A few clone wars, maybe a few new if you are lucky, and leftover Legends, mostly ATOC and ROTS white clones. Oh, and the Legacy stuff that's not part of the sale...a dozen Willrows and Bespin Guards.

They upped the Endor pilot packs to $29.99, now that I feel I could rationally purchase them. ::) (For that you could buy two clearance evolutions packs and get six pilots or 3 pilots and 3 padmes!)

Another 2 for $10.99 sale at Toys R Us this week. Seems like every other week now. Obviously doesn't include vintage. Spiderman, Marvel Universe, Iron Man2 and GI JOE are included.

Does the recent reveal in the Clone Wars cartoon increase the odds that Maul's death with be re-edited in the 3D release of Episode 1?

Obi-Wan just slashes him a little, Maul falls...intact...we see him crawling out of the sewer or something at the end.

Then Boba Fett walks by and winks at the camera.  :P

Collect All 92! / Re: Ree Yees
« on: February 26, 2011, 11:01 PM »
I'll take Ree Yees in the bet...  Only because he was a more uncommon figure than Yak Face, who was everywhere.

I'd rather they do Ree-Yees, but I think it'll be Yak-Face, mainly due to the appeal of the vintage card. Most folks never got an 80's Yak-Face, let alone on the original card.

If they do make Ree-Yees, he could come with those three-lensed "trinoculars" that Kenner was gonna make for him.  :D

They should upgrade smuggler Lando with better arms and a better head. The original release was flop at retail and with fans, but...

Movie Heroes / Saga Legends '12-? / Re: New Packaging for 2012

Sweet.  Looking forward to hunting for these with $6/gallon gas and $12.99 MSRP figures.

You got it wrong. Hasbro doesn't just mean that packaging is for 2012, $20.12 is also the MSRP. (TRU will charge $21.99)  :P

Creepy character, possibly the only Star Wars character that can literally rape someone with his eyes. Okay, that's sick.

I never owned the POTF2 one. He was part of the scarce wave that killed me as a potf2 completist.

A new one should have the ability to raise his glass (a must include accessory) to his mouth, since the dude was a pathetic drunkard.

On a griping note, why did they tinker with his species in the prequels and someone decided that Ree Yees here has mutant hands?

Stupid going back to artwork instead of photos. I blame the upcoming vintage collection EU figures for this.

(I'm kidding...I read the post at rabbleskum).

Ok, maybe not him but surely Jabba did, especially after the SEs came out.  Get the fat blob on a card.   ;)

Ha! If only I had the resources to make a mock Jabba Collection card.

I dislike any character-theme packaging. Not even Vader makes it look good.

I bet vintage packaging ends by early next year. It's been a "treat" for fans, but I suspect the suits really want  a more unified brand look.

Shadows of the Dark Side '10-'11 / Re: Imperial AT-AT

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars General Battle Pack Thread
« on: February 23, 2011, 03:58 PM »
Technically the 501st one is a "new" figure, isn't it? The old 501st clone wars clone trooper used the first helmet mold.

TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - Season Three Discussion Thread

Yeah, two week wait until the next part while they run some special stupid junk. Nice scheduling there, Cartoon Network.

Star Wars items are 5% off at TRU, with the Clone Wars Y-Wing $34.99 on sale.

Also, as Rebelscum poster noted, some older battle packs are $5.98 at TRU online.

They are Clone Wars Holocron Heist and Jedi Showdown and BAD-era Birth of Darth Vader and Tatooine Desert Ambush. None of that is vintage, but I don't think anyone would notice if I posted in the Legacy forum.

With shipping they are like $11 each....2 of $18.... 3 for $25.

If only I wanted any of them. Maybe the Vader one...

Picked up Darth Sidious for $5.20 after $6.50 sale and a 20% off coupon at Meijers. Which is strange, cuz I'm not a Palpatine/Sidious fan, figured if I'm gonna get one I want a poseable one.
