TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - Season Three Discussion Thread
« on: October 1, 2010, 10:35 PM »
"Sphere of Influence" used a lot of characters but didn't "wow" me. Not sure what the point of some of these episodes are in the greater scheme of things, but that's me falling for the "preview made the season looks so great", like the opening credits of an 80's action show. (R.I.P. Stephen J. Cannell) It's true they can't and shouldn't be all epic battles. This one did almost spell out "THIS IS AN EPISODE 1 TRIBUTE".

All these non-combatant types experts with a blaster against people who should be better than them? Yeah, it's just a t.v. show. I know.

Ahsoka's a badass against droids but calls it quits when Nemoidian troops arrive. Not one to kill living beings? Heck, the Papanoida clan massacred a whole bar!

Also, our main heroes and villains are mostly bit players lately. That's okay, but I wonder if that reduces kid appeal.

Next week, yep, it's a Meg episode. I mean, a Padme/Duchess Sattee episode. Political intrigue. Taxation of trade routes. Citizen outrage. Debate. Hopefully more Lott Dodd.  He's the main villain this year. Ha-ha. (Go ahead and ask Hasbro if they'll make a figure of him.  :P )

There's a new $5 off K-mart Coupon.

I think it's the same as the last one, but through October 31st. Now if I could find a store that has Jodo Kast.

There's a TRU Coupon, same as before but good through October 3rd.

Not much time there, but maybe you can get the $5 and the gift card like I did.

The Vintage Collection / Re: TVC will fail...
« on: September 28, 2010, 09:06 AM »
I think a potential failure of TVC collection will be of stores stupidly pricing the figures differently. I saw parents and kids looking at Vintage cards at TRU, possibly not realizing they weren't part of the sale or not pay attention to the $10 price tag.

That's not gonna help clear out, say Cloud Car Pilot or 4-LOM. or other slow sellers.

No idea...I doubt it based on how it reads. It doesn't say free card with every $30 or $50 you spend but with any purchase at or over those amounts. (But then I somehow got a $5 off coupon and the card, even though the coupon said "not valid with any other total purchase off".)

These "promotional" gift cards also expire at the end of October, too. Which is a bit irritating.

The Legacy Collection / Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
« on: September 26, 2010, 06:22 PM »
They've had those packs at Wal-Mart here for 2 months without ever reducing them below $11. I'd get the Mohc set (there was only left) or another Weir set at $7, but I'll never catch them at that price if it happens.

Got the K-Mart Clone Squad for $10.40. It's decent at that price, since I didn't have the Obi-Wan or red ARC Trooper. Wish it had a clone other than the SCUBA one...I hate the way that figure's shoulder paint chips off so easily. Surprisingly it was the last set the store had, weeks ago they had like 10.

Extra 20% of K-Mart clearance currently. I found the Clone Squad for $10.40 (including the 20% off). Also, B-A-D figures were $3.20 or something (weren't even marked as clearance at the store I went to), but there were none I really wanted.  Older Clone Wars and Legends scanned as full price, though.

I'll check another K-mart tomorrow.

1763
TRU is giving out $5 and $10 gift cards with Star Wars purchases of $30 or $50 respectively. Vehicles are $22.99 (not the older package stock  :P) and Clone Wars/Legends are 2 for $11.99.

Used the coupon at TRU today and got a free $5 gift card with Quinlan Vos's picture on it. I didn't think it would work.

Will Greedo shoot first in next week's episode?

Seriously, wondering if there will be a reference to that.

Collect All 92! / Re: Yoda
« on: September 25, 2010, 06:23 PM »
Sculpting, accuracy...whatever. As far as I'm concerned the old Kenner Yoda is still my favorite. Back when the character was likable and not some failed committee chairperson who decided to just give up after losing one fight.

1766
Is the coupon still good tomorrow? I almost used it today, but then I added things up and I might have been saving 50 cents over regular prices at other stores...that's assuming I didn't have to pay tax on the original prices...then I'd have been saving maybe less than a quarter. I was gonna get 2 vintage and one Legends...but they have 50 cents extra on Legends/Clone Wars. So I'd have been paying $4.50 over other stores. TRU's ridiculous Vintage prices cost them a sale with me. 3 vintage for $30 minus $5 is still a buck more than Target/Wal-Mart.

Maybe I should've done it anyway since they had all of wave 2. Oh, well.

So when will Season 3 actually start? I mean, in terms of events.

I wanted Lott Dodd to win.

I'm amused by the absurdity that the Trade Federation isn't at war.

Seems like the clones could've held out longer if they'd used cover more.

I don't understand why Orn Free Ta has only 3 fingers (and 1 thumb) on each hand.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: TRU Exclusive Nikto Guard?
« on: September 24, 2010, 08:27 AM »
Hoping for a "Buy ______ get Nikto guard free" sale like they did with Ponds. Then again, I didn't get Ponds when that had that sale (and despite his price tag, all his figures eventually vanished...weird).

I don't know why they used the term "bounty hunter" constantly, I guess because "mercenary" is too hard foreign sounding to 6 year olds.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: CW Deluxe Figure & Vehicle Line
« on: September 20, 2010, 08:27 AM »
But the value isn't really there for me.  I am not opening these and saving the receipts, waiting for a sale with a better price.  Target's price isnt terrible at $16, but when you have $17 and $18 at WM and TRU - that is just tiping the scale for me too much.  Probably because I remember just a couple years ago that MSRP on standard vehicles was $20.

Target here raised them to $17.

They are too much for me. I recall the battle pack with 2 bikes and 2 figures for $20...then $25. Deluxe should be about $13. It's really absurd when TRU is asking $18 to $20 for a STAP or Speeder bike...when on the same aisle there's $25 battle packs with a speeder and 3 figures, and one (from years ago) with 2 STAPS and 3 figures.
