I'd laugh if the figure it comes with is Ackbar...  the guy's tired of taking the helm of the big slugs and wants to get his hands dirty now.

Yeah, that's being true to the figure selection on the Kenner box. Maybe a bit too faithful!

That POTF Nein Nunb...really glaring reminder about how much a new one is needed.

Saw the broadcast of "It's a Trap" tonight.

I liked the Stormtrooper dead Ewok pillow fight. The excessive nodding was funny, too...but took up a lot of time.

Thanks for the update.  As an added twist, what's the best Stormtrooper without a removable helmet?  Vintage isn't vintage if you know what the Stormtroopers look like. :)  I'm using the Legacy Stormtrooper which is repaint of the Shadow Stormtrooper... which is really a version of VOTC.

Well, there's a "new" Target vintage 3-pack Stormtrooper, but that's really the ball-jointed hipped Sandtrooper, so the helmet is off and there's no belt cannister. Probably a slot in his back, too.

So what you are using is probably best. The Tantive IV pack stormtrooper has its fans, but that figure is a sandtrooper, no cannister, slot in back and no waist or torso joint.

At this point if they make a new Vader without ball jointed hips and wrists, then it's a waste of time.

Vintage Kenner one was an early release, a spoiler really. They should've released her in 1984.

Never got the most recent version...helmet looks like it sets too low compared to the movie.

Also, who is that behind Boushh in the photo?

Captain America Deluxe figure lack any swivel arm joints. So much for "deluxe".

And they pulled the Iron Man/Spiderman bit with the jeep-type vehicles, too. Both include Captain America figures as poseable as a 1978 Kenner Luke Skywalker.

I'm not really surprised, just disappointed that this is from the company that made GI JOE, where every vehicle driver (except Deep Six) was as moveable as a regular figure.

I always and just ordered a lot from there but man you are better off buying the case and returning the extras in place of army builders to brick and motor stores than buying singles.

How would that work, the UPC's aren't the same?

New rumor list from

CW60: Osi Sobeck
CW61: Even Piell
CW62: Captain Keeli
CW63: K2-B4 (Citadel Tactical Droid)
CW64: ARC Trooper Fives
CW65: Citadel Commando Droid
CW66: ARC Trooper Echo
CW67: Adi Gallia
CW68: Captain Wilhuff Tarkin
CW69: OOM-10 (With Reprogrammed Battle Droid)

And with the latest EE listings, we can chalk this list up to "fan fic" aka "weapons grade bolognium".

Storm the Separatist Cruiser Figure Battle Pack

Collector's note: This item is a repackaged version of the classic Star Wars Episode III Jedi vs. Separatists Battlepack

What? No, really, that's got to be an error.  All these battle packs are listed as being reissues by Entertainment Earth, when they are likely those Clone Wars 3-packs we've seen photos of.

Sounds like a basic "Starfighter" assortment release based on the price. Hopefully they'll do it enough justice.

Rebelscum has pictures of the Battle Pack Echo (501st) and a cold weather Plo Koon from a cancelled comic pack. I did not know Clone Wars style comic packs were ever planned.

Trench would make a great mail away. ...At least with the mail away we know we can find the product.

They said no more Clone Wars mail aways.

Chewie's all but a sure bet. Which is why I never considered adding him to my list.

Saw the comic wave of figures. Not bad, sloppy paint on a few of them. They need to stop being stingy on villains, as some of old types don't know about WINTER SOLDIER (whose Marvel Universe figure peg warms at TRU) but know Zemo and other baddies.

The frisbee "FLYING SHIELD" amuse's just a frisbee! BUT IT'S SUPER PATRIOTIC!

The motorcycle/ATV toys with the figures stuck in riding pose...hated that as a kid, still do.

Simple articualted figures...I saw some two packs at Meijer for $10 (Jordan and the guy he gets the ring from, and Jordon and some alien GL), which is decent for modern figures. Singles were $7. I think the sculpting is overall better than Infinate Heroes.

The small vehicles were terrible in that they figures with them aren't really action figures when seperated from their machines. Killwog (undersized compared to carded figure) has legs permanently in riding mode, and the battle suit Hal Jordan is just an immovable painted figure that goes inside the armor.

The final battle Parallax was amusing with some chest bursting grabbing monster hand.

Anyone else watch how they ended SG:U?  I can't believe Sci Fi isn't keeping the show going.

The only thing I'll watch on there now is Eureka.   :-[

Universe had much improved, if still often annoyingly cliched. Like putting the women in jeopardy: nurse TJ has Lou Gerig's disease, Chloe becoming an alien, Park going blind. And the disposable character who panics during a crisis just to make a regular cast member look better for their response to them.

There was too much use of the stone to go back to Earth in season 1, when more should've happened with Destiny.

Still, it was engaging. Some people who wanted the cheeky, hokey stuff from SG-1 and Atlantis...but why retread that material in a post LOST/NuBSG era?
