The one episode "Cat and Mouse" from season 2 with Admiral Trench took  place before the movie as well, making it the "first episode" so far.

Rewatching this morning, I caught the THX-1138 reference.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Recent Vintage Collection Purchases
« on: September 18, 2010, 06:13 PM »
I got the Cloud Car Pilot using a Meijer store 20% off coupon (I was tempted to get the AT-AT for $80). Decent figure, a bit short compared to the recent Cloud City denizens (who all were arguably too tall, especially the two security guards, and yes, even the ugnaughts). Now I need his ship to fly.

The only signs I've seen of wave 2 were some wave 1 UGH stuff, which I don't care about.

Interesting, two more out of sequence episodes. (Which means that the almost-phase 2 helmet appears even earlier than thought!)

Sgt. Brick's voice was not what I was expecting. And was that other alien from the cantina?

Grievous and Ventress finally meet.

A whole new type of battle droid.

There were really good shots, too. Or animations sequences, whatever.

They did that (a poll) for Legends in the past and I thought everyone could pick basically anything that had been made?  I forget how that worked though exactly.

Fans voted and Hasbro made whatever they intended to make since they rigged the whole thing.  ;)

All to prevent Ephant Mon from being reissued and losing Hasbro 5 cents on their annual earnings.

Not Star Wars speficically, but if you live anywhere there's a Meijer store, this friday and saturday there's a 20% coupon for any Toy Department item, excludes clearance.

Meijer 2 Day Super Sale

The astromech is a perfect pack-in since you either want Mace's JSF or you don't and if you don't, it's not like you're gonna run out and pick up the astromech repaint.

Not sure about that, there's hardcore astromech fans out there. I'm not one of them, besides BAD's, the last astromech I got was in that Luke-R2 comic pack a few years back.

Yeah, it makes sense as an exclusive pack-in.

Collect All 92! / Re: Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues)

I want one with a spring action right hand that launches out of his arm. That Saga one didn't cut it.

That was the last version I got.

Kenner 1980 version was decent toy...though the head sculpt was uninspired even for the era. At least his lightsaber wasn't stuck up his arm. Instead it was a yellow stick that you lost in 15 seconds.  :P

The change up to this year, adding bounty hunters, shows they might mix things up more. Considering how dull the assortments were on the previous red Legacy Cards (which didn't even have the old battle droid 2 pack), things are looking slightly more interesting.

I recall reading that they were put the Legacy EU Spacetrooper in Legends next year. Pretty obscure choice for something aimed at kiddies. Not that they wouldn't want it, but it's hardly a proven hit with them since it barely appeared in stores (i never saw one) and collectors and scalpers scooped them up.

A recent Q&A response says the Bossk won't be single carded for at least a year.

Does anyone know, which sculpt the R2 that comes with this set uses?

IIRCC, someone said that Hasbro said it will be a Build A Droid version.

Y-Wings and V-19's and Gunships?

No, I meant that I  don't own anything for him to fly...that's he's supposed to be flying.

I got Yoda and Oddball via ebay auctions for less than $2 each. No packages, all accessories, including cards. That's Yoda is pretty darn good. Oddball still has the sitting issue, and for a pilot figure...that's irritating. Nothing for him to fly anyway.

Of course it's Rex. It's at least three times easier to get Rex than it is his troops.

Anakin Skywalker still has a useless right hand.

I thought the new "collector focused" line mostly ended the backgrounders anyway.  :P (Or it just seems that way because there's no "new" backgrounders, just redos at the moment.)

Yeah, when they started making ROTS concept Anakin and Ki Adi-Mundi (a good figure, but an odd choice), you know they were running short of Prequel Hero types. Those figures (and the more praised McQuarries/Johnston) arguably took away new tooling that could've been applied to actual movie characters. In that regard, the realistic Clone Wars figures are going to as well. Which is all reasonable, because a lot of the backgrounders we want have been slow movers compared to those concept figures and Hasbro has to balance things out.

But I hope they wouldn't "replace" concept figures, because I wouldn't mind a concept Gammorean Guard, maybe a few others.
