The only major thing the POTJ one had over the Kenner one is a more accurate headsculpt.  Kenner made those soft good well, made a bit player into an action figure. One of their best.

No new figs at my TRU. Saw the Assassin Spider droid battle pack, though. I think the droid could be more articulated. So I passed.

Got Rishi Outpack Attack battle pack for $17 at Wal-Mart. Those commando droids seem even smaller out of the package (never owned any before now).  :-\

Target's $18 sale on the Battle Packs shows that no one likes Obi-Wan again...8 sets at one store and 7 of them were Geonosis packs. (I'd be inclined to get that one but I just won the Geonosian on ebay by himself).

It's just his name...Shawn Earthling.  ;) Shouldn't it be Wansh Delvaz or something?

Rest his soul? Lee Greenwood is still alive, despite my efforts.  >:D

As long as they never make Shawn Valdez, I'm cool with unique rebels.

2012 can't come soon enough.

Based on Hasbro scheduling, we've already seen everything that will actually be released in 2012.

Looking good for Princess Kneesa in 2012 too...

We will finally know where woklings come from.  ;D

Actually, I had the plush Kneesa from 83-84, I knew where they came from.  ;)

That deleted scene had all the breadth of a Bantha and just about as much smarm.

What do you think the odds are that in 2012 they'll dig out Maul's Sith Attack Speeder for the deluxe line and give it to Savage Opress. Maybe the Gungan cannon will return, too...seems less likely, though, even with Gungan set to appear on TCW.

Rumor has it that Dennis Lawson is buying all them up because he hates being in Star Wars and even petitioned to have his character removed from the Blu-Ray editions.

Or maybe I just made that up.  ;)

So, while looking at ebay auction for the Wal-Mart Dewback from a year or two ago...I gotta ask, have they changed the Dewback again (to TPM model)?

Or did they do that last time and I just forgot?

The Star Wars movies are to George Lucas what Michael Jackson's nose was to Michael Jackson. Just won't leave well enough alone until it gets ugly.  :o

It's great to have that Facebook TRU 20% off coupon and get the Force Unleashed pack at TRU...oh, wait...that didn't happen, because they didn't have it or the Commando set in stock (or perhaps just not out). So finding nothing else (besides common stuff the coupon would lower to other stores' regular prices) I leave with nothing, the coupon in a cart for someone to find. Thanks, Toy R Useless. Thanks a lot.  ::)

Anyone ever actually say "Lucas raped my childhood" or is one of those "Let them eat cake!" quotes that is either misattributed or just invented by those who want to make a group of people sound stupid?

I like the quotes from Lucas that someone dug up from 1988, saying that movies are public art and shouldn't be altered.

It's all so anal now. He should've released a remake of ANH in 2008, this year we would've gotten ESB remake, and 2014 the ROTJ one. No more corrections, do it all over or move on.

Then he could get the OT prints and burn them all.  >:D

I'd vote for Jaxxon over Jocasta.

My money is on the bunny.

He'd beat her by a hare.
