Army of the Republic battle pack packaged picture here:
Clone Wars Wave 4 Battle Packs Preorder at Entertainment Earth

As everyone thought, nothing too exciting.

Might be more like old stock of Anakin with Can Cell or Dooku with Speeder Bike.

It'll be fun to hear what everyone gets.

Yeah, just when I thought I was out, they keep pulling me back in!

I found the undead geonosian  at TRU today.  None of the rest.

Just saw the flier, another friday-saturday (17th and 18th) sale at Toys R Us. Star Wars Clone Wars and Legends are Two for $9.99 again (that's funny with the price hike!).

Also, VINTAGE will be on sale for $7.99. Oh, wow.  ::)

Not sure I'll make the trip, last few times they had nothing of interest, beyond the same old army builders that I'd rather go after loose on ebay.

I'd skip the bunker. It didn't cut it in the late 90's. They've have to up its size and put somethig on the inside.

New speeder bikes might be nice, as in NEW. I dislike the Clone Wars speeder bike mold  with it's sagging soft plastic front end. The one with the At-At can even sit on the ground well, which the Kenner one from 27 years ago could do. And I actually did like the exploding feature, even if it occassionaly activated when you didn't want it to.

Months ago, I saw the leaked Comic Con footage...the link I clicked on said trailer....heck, it was the movie condensed, probably.  Saved me $7.50 in the future though.  :P

Found the Target exclusive TIE Fighter today for $13.98.

Why? Because they were out of the R/C Hailfire droid, had raincheck slips, but shelf sign offered Clone Wars Starfighter substitute for $13.98. I saw the sign...great, but they don't have any clone wars vehicles...but they had the TIE, which scanned at $13.98. So I got one.

Then I foolishly went to the other Target, and no such thing there. They had the hailfire, vehicles were the normal price. Oh, well, shoulda trusted my gut on that one, which said "it's just this store".

"The Sequel Has Landed..."

"One small stink for fans, one gigantic dump from Michael Bay..."

It's a MOON TRAP. Call Walter Koenig.

the freaky alien Bespin Guard (who you can put Needa's head on, and it looks good, to make a generic white Bespin Guard...  That's your tip of the day folks),

New Rebel Commando's head works, too. And makes another goateed trooper. Yay!  :P

Shoot. I forgot to check that out.

Friday and saturday Toys R Us having another 2 for $9.99 sale on Star Wars (Legends and Clone Wars), plus GI JOE, IRON MAN.

Meijer stores have a 20%  general merchandise items over $14.97 coupon for this saturday only. (I dont know if that's store chain wide.)

I Then they just need some good footsoldier hardware and you've got yourself an Imperial Soldier ready to roll into battle (safely behind Stormtroopers because they're pussies, of course).

Yet, taller and stronger looking (at least going by jackoftradze's photo).

Anyway, if some guys were cloned to fight and die for the Empire, wouldn't you let them go in first?  ;)

Oh, yeah, the Hoth Attack/Defense sets are $35 again (or did they ever bo back up?), of course, locally all I see are Defense sets.

My brother and I both got Kenner Lando just before seeing ESB, so he must've been cool to us at the time.

I only have the comic pack version of VOTC Lando.

POTF Disco Lando can never be topped. Ha! Muscle bound, cartoony faced and wearing bell bottoms.

Seems like they've never gotten his shirt color right.

hey Galactic Senators - ever heard of bodyguards? WTF? You people just stroll around town with no security? You deserve to be beaten!

Senator Amidala's has been targeted for death a dozen times. And she has probably had more people die protecting her than were on the first Death Star when it blew up.  :D

But she still strolls off without protection...that will be the death of her...wait, it was.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: What is your Focus?

Three camps, with Original Trilogy favoritism.

Main Interests:
troopers (empire, rebel, clone)
background characters
Bounty hunters

Concept art figures
EU characters from perquel/OT timeframe
Pilots (Not a ship collector, so...)
Seperatist/Droid army
Main heroes/villains

Less interested:
EU characters from 1000 years before ANH or far after ROTJ
Astromech droids

There's exceptions, but I'm just prefer the average joe with a gun over the destined sword wielding champions. Also, astromechs don't do much...I mean for $7 or $8...I want something poseable that can hold stuff.
