Minor spoilers for DARK WARRIOR (not sure what that title has to do with anything).

Tonight's Seperatist conspirator was named after

Good episode...more happened here than in that entire last story ark. Though, the idea was almost a retread of that and Bombad Jedi.

Padme's teen clothes still fit her.

How damned pathetic is the Republic that Seperatist forces land on Naboo unopposed?

They should of saved this episode for TPM rerelease. Can always rerun it.

I saw of lot of potential for toys they'll never make.

Dooku has Magna guards backing him up, though. Since the Sith cheat at duels.

Less exclusives next year for all Hasbro brands. Maybe a good thing? On the other hand, maybe not...since their picks for mainline offerings are rigid.

Actually saw Saesee Tiin at TRU today. No one else from his wave, though. Had Eeth Koth, too. These are the first new figures I've seen since March or April.

Would a new 2-1B would debut as a kid oriented action feature release?

I dislike action features, like articulation and have passed on a few Clone Wars releases just due to their lack of ankle joints.

If this is want they want to do to get kids interested in Star Wars figures, ...makes more sense than these occassional short-lived kid-aimed idea like ten-inch Clone Wars figures of a mere 3 characters or that attacktix series. 

Hope the light-up sabers don't look like the electronic power f/x figures with the thick arms and stuff. (The Emperor was amusing with the lightning...only one I got...on clearance)

TRU is having a sale on the Battle of  Endor sets, $10 off. It's only today and tomorrow (wednesday and thursday)

Mediocre at best arc, went on an ep too long. The Quarren come off as easily mislead fools. Padme was around soley for being placed in jeopardy. In the movies, Dooku was supposed to be charismatic, here he's a thug delegating power to Tamson who is of course, a thug. Hard to make the seperatist cause convincing when they are outright jerks to the people they are supposedly trying to win over.

Also, while I know it hardly matters for the sake of a cartoon, but how do the aquatic aliens talk underwater?

Somebody needs to ask Hasbro  if they'll ever make the Gian Speeder, it being 10 years+ since TPM.

I watched through "The lost Rebels" cut scene on Youtube.  Hooboy.  Some of those Rebel pilots were just ABYSMALLY BAD.  The old lady had no sense of urgency about her at all.  The Sullustan and the Mon Calamari were the best of the bunch, and they were PUPPETS!

The dialouge between the two was great...

It's kinda sad. Because they will likely be shredded. (Not as sad those cantina aliens from Legacy that got tore up, because fandom is full of fickle fools who only seem want obscure characters 2 years after their retail release.)

I never got Dengar or that Clone...mostly because of cost.  Ha.

I bet they'll never touch those Saga Legends Obi-Wans that are just as bad peg warmers.

Han Solo salt and vinegar....heh.

Think I might've swapped Luke and Leia's flavors. She's sour and after the Wampa he was pizza faced!

Whats scares me is that somebody somewhere is making up some EU backstory for that old lady.

I'm might buy extra Ponda for the hands. I'll wind up with some odd hands on some used clone troopers, but right now one of them has a Wolverine hand anyway.

The "gotta have it now" people are the ones buying stuff from overseas on ebay, often at inflated prices. The rest of us just want the option to you know, buy at retail, like  how (normal) people buy any mass consumer products.

Kids like extra guns, they'd like extra lightsabers, too*. Watching some stop motion vids on youtube, some of which are made by kids, they use the extra weapons, the EMP launcher (?) is used as a bazooka. Going by my yard sale hunts, its also the weapon most likely to survive and be sold at a yard sale (got two of them this year).

All the clones that needed rifles had a chance to get them.

For those of us who do buy used figures that often come without accessories, it was an incentive to get some new figures.

Also, you can sell your unwanted weapons on ebay, same with the BAD parts.

*This is strange that lightsabers have only been offered in the Episode 1 accessory packs, vintage Kenner didn't include any in their mail-in offer and Bespin Luke's saber was soooo easy to lose.

I'd bring the concept back and make 6 assortments, one per movie...cut it back to 5 weapons per set but include some lightsabers.
