  But I left behind all 6 of the blue ray sets and the $80 shittle

We'll pretend that was a typo.  ;)

Jar Jar was useless to the movie. Oh, he leads the two Jedi to the Gungans, who loan them a sub to go to Theed.  Most of which was filler, really. It was like the KING KONG remake taking 45 minutes to get to Skull Island...we all know they are going to  get to the island...they have to,  or no big gorilla.

Qui-Gon Jin may have been an unneeded character. Make a full fledged knight Obi-Wan find Anakin, and thus he bears the great blame for the Republic's fall. Proof in point how unneeded two Jedi were....while Qui-Gon is in Mos Espa....Obi-Wan does almost nothing for all that time. It would be like having ANH character who stays on the Falcon the whole time they are on the Death Star.

This all belongs in another forum.  ;)

Do Anakin and Dooku have the new headsculpts from the 2010 Target Geonosis sets? I can't tell for sure but if so I might have to pick that set up.

Dooku, I'm almost positive does. Not sure about Anakin.

This Death  Star blew fandom's faces.

Hasbro, the more you tighten your exclusives grip, the more collectors will slip through your fingers.

Not a lot of faith in Droid Capture pack, Hasbro? Defend Kamino gets slightly shorted, too.

Puck from Alpha Flight?

Does anyone younger than 40 know who that is?!?!

Have they made any other figures from that comic? I loved that.


Regional sale/price drop, Meijers have Battle Packs for $19.99 until the end of the month (the old ones, not the new 3-packs). The store I went had a sign...but no packs.  :(

I saw this at a Target today $39.99 (unless I read the wrong shelf tag). Only holds two figures in the drivers area and the commander hatch is non-functioning.

$34.99 Aug 2011
(They have the Battle Over Endor packs shown with a tag saying $24.99!  :P )

Phobos looks a bit cartoony.  :-\

The new troopers look okay.

$21.99 according to tag seen at in a Galactic Hunter picture. AUG 11 release.

I don't go this Target often, it's the farthest within reasonable driving distance. I was there some 2 weeks back , but the aisle mostly looked mostly the same, except today clearance had been moved to an aisle of its own and some other minor shuffling. I'd guess they are in mid-process.   

They still had the Hostage Crisis and Hidden Enemy packs...not reduced at all. 

IRON MAN hall of armor figures with the bases....$2.67!

Waxer and Battle Droid for 99 cents...I'm lying, $7.48.

Saw the ATTACK SHUTTLE. Trust me, guys, once you see this baby on a store shelf your opinion on it probably won't change much at all. LOL.

Sure most of them are dated, but some people make the old Episode 1 figures to be worse than they are, IMHO. There's few that are embarassing/awful as some of the early POTF2 releases or some of the later AOTC Saga era stuff. 

TPM was the only Prequel that felt like it got a real, as in old school Kenner era, toy line of its own. AOTC was a mess that didn't get its own packaging. ROTS was better, but was planned to end at the end of 2005, parts of its toy series felt rushed/half hearted.

I want all but Mawhonic.  I see no point in getting more Pod Race figures if we don't have pods for them to race in.

I just treat pod racers as background aliens. At least the decent looking ones. Mawhonic looks good for that capacity.

No purchases, but I did spot the 3 new Target 3-packs out on the pegs today. The Bossk/IG-88 set looked kinda cool, but overall meh. Do not recall having seen these before...

I saw them, too. I noticed Chewbacca's bandolier has the Hoth snowflake weathering on it.  :P C-3PO has some oily weathering on his chest circles that I don't remember seeing before.

I like that the Snowtrooper has the IG-88 rifle (there's two in the pack), the carded release should've come with that, too.

Needa looks unchanged.
