Ah, I miss KENNER's "WE REALLY DO CARE!"

My bro broke the vintage Millenium Falcon's guns and they sent him a new one.

Of course, greedy scum would exploit that for all it was worth nowdays so they could resale parts on ebay.

If I like something, I may always get it depending on the price. I like Pax-what's-his-face even though he was an inaccurate version of the Episode 1 character, him being a recolored super articulated Greedo was cool with me, because I liked that Greedo mold. I'd give most stormtroopers a shot, too, if they used a good mold.

Actually, I might buy something repainted I know I like already over something new, simply because the Star Wars line is still hit/miss with me.

I dislike all the Jedi Starfighters. To be fair, I've never held a Clone Wars version in my hands (or Clone Wars modified Anakin model). But the movie AOTC and ROTS models do nothing for me. I dislike the assymterical astromech droids, and another reason could be because that the OT had real uniformed pilots and the Jedi jump in their rides robes and all, with a metal head band on. Somehow I doubt ANH would have the same effect if Luke stayed in his Tatooine duds and donned a metal halo. But that's really off topic.

I rarely buy vehicles anyway, most of the ones I've gotten over the past few years were used and I prefer ground based items anyway. I was tempted to get the previous blue-greay CLONE WARS Trade Federation AAT before they all disappear. But in that case, it clashes with my 30th anniversary one...and the vehicle is just okay, not great.

Yeah, I used that coupon 3 other times before that. As I said, just a hour before at a different store, and the cashier knew what it was before I handed it to her, she said "we've been getting those all day".

Vintage/Legends/Clone Wars figures $5.99 at Meijers this week. (Iron Man and Marvel Universe, too.)

Clone Wars Slave 1 set $79.99 at TRU.

Got one today for $50 plus tax. I had the coupon, but after 5 minutes of the cashier finding a customer service guy, they come back and tell me that the coupon wasn't supposed to be put online. Frustrating.

Which was probably my bad, since I'd used a black & white copy of the coupon that same store earlier in the week (before i knew about the AT-AT sale). Damn black and white printer ruined it.

The K-Mart I went to an hour earlier took the color copy I printed out, but they didn't have the AT-AT.

Oh, well.

The astromech droid is laughable. TVC is $8 - a whole $1 mainly for the packaging look - and this figure 1. has no accessories, and 2. is mostly an accessory.

What I said on the 'scum forum, R5-D4 is what we would've got free (piece by piece) had B.A.D. continued.

Reminder, if you got one of those promotional Clone Wars Quinlan Vos TRU giftcards last month, they expire today (10/29/10)! Use it or lose it. I used my yesterday.

Hands behind back, so that probably means his sleeves are unchanged and therefore are wrong, too.

For fun, I circled the characters they could've made.

Fun for the vintage card lover, but I find that wave mostly worthless.

Yavin Ceremony Han...really? Laziest thing ever.

Stormtrooper sounds nice...but they went with the 30th Anniversary helmet "eyes and headband connected" look. Not a big fan of that.

I never got that Gree or R5-D4, but don't care enough to pay $8.

Luke looks prissier than ever.


1735
I got the Rodian pack. He's decent. One knee was looser than I'd like, but that's just luck of the draw probably. His fingers are way too short compared to Greedo and Pax.

The Battle Droid included is an officer without the markings (does that mean he's a red security droid?). And his eyes are inbetween the "earlier, too big releases" and the "current smaller corrected versions". That's odd. Neck was looser than I'd like, but stays up if you pull it all the way up.

I got the older Kit Fisto/Geonosian set instead of the Shaak Ti one. Is it me or is Kit too short and the Geonosian too tall?

Collect All 92! / Re: Dengar
« on: October 24, 2010, 02:19 PM »
Dunno why Kenner made him so short. The 1981 one was okay for age, if boring compared to the other bounty hunters. For some reason as a young lad I intially thought his figure was a bandaged up Luke Skywalker after his confrontation with Vader or the Wampa...which just seems absurd.

What I've heard about Dengar's EU backstory, I can do without.

TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - Season Three Discussion Thread
« on: October 22, 2010, 09:42 PM »
I think everything that happened this season took places before the end of season 1. Some stuff that happened last season did, too, not just the Admiral Trench episode, the Boba Fett story and possibly the Mandalore arc, too.

Holocron Heist may be the most recent episode in the time line...or is it Zilla beast? No idea. None. It's a damn mess. They expect kids to follow this? I can't.

The "not getting the figure right the first time" has gotten old. But I never got any Cad Bane, so...this might be the one!  ;)

I think the white suited guys in this ebay auction are the same figures.  I don't know GI Joe figures very well...

Those are Lanard STAR CORPS figures from the late 90's/early 2000's. GI JOE knock-offs, once commonly available at Toy R Us and Wal-Mart.

4) 2-piece helmet Vader has been replaced with one of the Vintage variations


Not a Vintage mold at all, but the 2006 Saga version that was based on the 500th (meditation) Vader, and had been released as part of Legends for the past few years (and included in the Grand Moff Trachta comic pack by as a straight reissue  >:( ). No ball shoulders or ankles, cut elbows...a step dooownnn.
