I didn't realize that people were finding them early. $20 a set. I'll skip 'em unless there's a sale. 

The 3rd wave of three packs according to Banthaskull:

Bossk/ IG-88/ Imperial Stormtrooper in Hoth Battle Gear 
R2-D2/ C-3PO/ Chewbacca  (strangely referred to back in the day as Android Set).
Dengar/ Imperial Commander/ AT-AT Driver

The real mystery is what the imperial commander will be, hopefully not a POTJ version. But these have been all repacks thus far. So maybe Renz or Dyer from the battle packs?

Finally a Battle Droid with knee articulation.

Doesn't look like they gave it the swivel forearms that the firefighter droid had, though. But why would they, when they make ball joint hipped speeder biker clones with no ankle joints.

I also love the fact that, apparently looking to save money on the packs, Hasbro chooses to drop yet another figure but keeps the trading card game.  Nice.

If they wanted to save money, slap them on the card, and ditch the box format, which in now 2/5th's empty space, but I suppose the box is part of the lure for the average consumer.

Ugh...some of those packs would be good if there was another figure. I hope they are exclusives, because $25 for 3 figure defeats the intent of the battle packs, which was a gift set or a value (well, in the early years). Might as well buy Li'l Timmy 3 figures of your choosing instead.

Exclusives or not, what happened to Hasbro's alleged "all new or all repacks" when it came to Battle Packs? Who wants to get hosed because they just want that Cad Bane or that clone with Rex and Grievous?

Coming soon in the summer of 12' - "Battle Pairs"

Wal-Mart and Target have those already, they just need to ROLL-UP prices on them. :P

You mean the running changes that Hasbro can't intentionally do but has done 4 times with Legends, and 5 or so times with Vintage in the past 10 months?

What's funny, I never got that Dark Trooper. Even when he was reissued the first time 3 years ago, he was dated looking.

Someone forgot to tell Hasbro that April Fool's Day was a month ago!  :(

Also, no long states "Includes Secret Weapons", so maybe Hasbro dumped them to save 2 cents per 100 figures reissued.

This isn't mine, but I found it hilarious and wasn't sure where to post it.
Bootleg Clone Wars

The blonde guy is made from a few different POTF2 figures.

Used the $2 off $10+ Star Wars purchase coupon (today is the last day) on the Special Ops Clone Trooper and Geonosian pack at Target that I've been meaning to get. Nice set, I see why it sells much faster than the other one (I got the last one, there were 7 Waxer and Battle Droid packs). First Clone trooper I've gotten with the "new" arms, the lack of ball jointed wrists hurts, but the elbows are much improved.

If you dropped it in major post office, it might make today's cancellation.  A local post office after the day's last scheduled pick-up...means it'll be in a box or bin until monday and have a monday post mark.

Unfun surprise today at Wal-Mart, Clone Wars and Legends figures have been rolled-up to $7.88, the weeks of $6.50 were fun whilst they lasted.  :(

I think hasbro gets its jollys from showing pictures of figures we will never see at normal retail.

Ha! Maybe.

I immediately looked at the ankles, and lack of a joint there and say "it figures". Not a bad looking figure, but as an action least give us Cato/Embo style ankles.

So I guess we have to send off for each one individually, no throwing in multiple forms in the same envelope. Right?

Imperial Troop transport...oh, reissues.

Ones I might get:

Snail Tank Droid


Geonosian Starfighter, never owned one but IIRC from what I read the pointy fronts sagged a log, so stiffer material there.

Luke's Landspeeder, if they toss in something extra...a womp rat a vaporator...smoldering corpses...that's something they should consider, combo packs of items that they won't make for deluxe or battle packs.

And I probably wouldn't get another one unless the deco was amazing, but if they did the Homing Spider Droid again, they need to have less projectile-looking laser barrels. Bugs me the way they look.

And if they don't reissue the Sith Infiltrator next year, I'll be surprised.

I saw one one of these at Target today, along with the Xanadu Blood, the Tri Fighter and the return of the V-19 Torrent.

The Vintage Collection / Re: What Would Be "The End" For You?

I was thinking about this, the vintage collection has gotten me to buy Clone Wars and even Legends more than I had in prior years.  Part of that is the improved articulation in some Clone Wars releases, and some recent additions to Legends, but price and availability are factors.

The Vintage Collection had gotten MOC and nostalgic types to buy more figures, probably. But the same old situations exist, stores are still ordering more Legends and Clone Wars. But now when those go on sale or get reduced, the collector-aimed series (Vintage) does not, which increases its "peg warmers", and makes restocking of that series slower. Instead of Pons Limbics and Brea Organas hanging around on pegs, we have ball-jointed hipped Sandtroopers and ROTS Clone Troopers, which seemed unthinkable 2 years ago. (We also have 4-LOM, which doesn't surprised me, as he bombed back in 2007...enough to make it to clearance at some stores.)

Some people are saying "fold Legends into Vintage". Nah, I say fold vintage into Legends. Then I get a figure stand, a keen card game card and extra weapons for less money!   ;)
