I'd have been all over that battle pack.

I didn't find anything Star Wars action figure related at TJ Maxx yesterday, besides those Force Battlers that they made to fail.

$4.99 Spiderman figures...if anyone cares. The venom with no articulation below his thighs....meh, and Doc Ock. I'll wait for clearance or never.

If they aren't gonna make all three Mortis characters, there's no point in making one. It would be like making Ziro's assassin droid but not Ziro.  ;)

It's thursday and still no preview for the next episode??

Schedule says Darkness on Umbara is airing tomorrow.

Will we have to wait 4 weeks for the conclusion of this arc?

One Q&A reply said  Seperatists are less likely to happen.  Worm Loathsom ruined it for everyone...or whatever excuse.

Krell, Maul is almost guaranteed...

Won't see: Riff Tamson, Adi Gallia, Tarkin or Ackbar (I figure that means no quarren, and no mon calamaris at all).

If season 5 is the last Clone Wars season, I don't expect a turn around in 2013.

Another site's Q&A says no Ackbar or Tarkin planned...sadly, that's not surprising.

Is this a national thing?

I stopped by a store this morning and they had absolutely no signage or any kind of advertising up for this deal. The one employee I asked claimed to have no idea what I was talking about.


Yes, I found the info at the 'Scum (though it was also sent via email since I signed up for the rewards program thing)

If you can find a price check scanner, they sometimes list a sale under the price...the ones today did. And stupidly, the store DID NOT have anything on the aisles posted about "the buy one get one 50%" sale.

The online store has the deals, too. I checked there before going today.  I only bought 2 figures, one clone wars and one legends, and they rang up as part of that get one 50% sale not the 2 for $12.99 sale. Wow, I got them for a penny less than i would have yesterday.  :P

Today only, TRU has buy one get one 50% off on all Star Wars figures, playsets and accessories.

Going by the online shop that includes the Trench Run set, Attack on the Coronet, Y-Wing (ROTJ), Slave 1, The video game figure sets, attack shuttle, deluxe figures, blu ray figure packs, regular vehicles...

Free shipping over for purchases over $49, too.

"Slaves of the Rebulic" sort of answered my question, the Zygerians enslave others because they have a sadistic culture and beings like the Hutts want slaves mainly for amusement/pleasure, not so much hard labor.

Spoilers ahead:

Monkey lizard knife fight.

A cameo of the monocled Hutt.

The winged monsters are too zillo-beastly for me, kind of distracting.

A suicide in a kid's show.  :o

It seems aliens are 70%  more likely to be enslaved if they have tails growing from their heads (lekku)...Kit Fisto's people better watch out!

Totally failed rescue, totally failed escape nods to ROTJ.

Poor Rex not a catching a break. Tough year for him...which is worse, because it's like two years to him compared to normal humans.

Anakin choking a beyotch..can we say that here? I mean she was. Alluring, though, in her long-necked, big eared way. No spikes on her jaw...gender differences, I guess.

Innocent civilians casually murdered while Kenobi helplessly watches.

And stuff that'll never see toy form.  :(

2 day sale at TRU, spend $35 or more on Star Wars and get a free Saga Legends figure.

Also, the ad says the Vintage Y-Wing is $'s more than that normally?

I thought the red and blue Humvees/LB's were made specifically for online retailers like Smalljoes to sell to Joe folks for "Cobra" stuff?  I could be wrong on that...  For some reason I was thinking that SJ had something up about them getting those specifically from the manufacturer that way.

There was a different colored Warthog too I thought, or maybe that was rumored and didn't happen?  It'd look sweet in all black as like Wild Weasel's squad or something, haha.

Maybe about the little birds (at least as far as US distribution went), but I do remember seeing the SWAT Humvee on the planogram picture.

Yeah, that black or blue warthog was for Marauder Gun Runners store and never happened, IIRC.

Hey, Rite Aid close to my work still has Clone Trooper Denal and a Saga C-3PO/ ewok throne! I think they are $10.99 each or something insane like that.

Funny side note, on more than one occassion I've noticed HALO building set packages in a nearby trash reciptical with Rite Aid price stickers on them, meaning some kid actually paid drug store prices for that stuff. But given the local shopping alternatives, there's nothing else within walking (bike riding?) distance that even carries the stuff.

On a sick side note,  I also felt that throwing away cool toy packaging was a waste.  :P Yeah...crazy.  :o

More likely R2-D2 sabotaged him. There's never been any love lost between R2's and R5's.

I always wind up watching a little bit of any of them when I surf by, if only to nitpick.  :D

Many viewings and years later, I still have no idea what Jar Jar Binks says to Anakin when they are in the Coruscant air speeder. 

in ROTS, Yoda is sitting right there in view when Mas Amedda contacts Bail Organa about the senate session...either Mas Amedda received audio only or he's an idiot. They could've just caught the two Jedi when they landed.

How does Kenobi knows to call Palpatine "the Emperor" when the Empire was just being declared at that time on Coruscant and Kenobi is on Mustafar?

Apparently Star Wars figures are buy one get one free at Walgreens. I haven't been into a Walgreens in years.

Yet another Toys R Us 2 for $12.99 sale on figures (Star Wars, GI JOE, Marvel, Captain America, Spiderman), doesn't sound like it includes vintage, though.
