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.

Saw them all at Toys R Us today. Of course, the store where they are $10. Didn't buy any. Noticed the one ROTS clone trooper left had a pre-yellowed helmet, saves you some trouble of exposing it to the elements.  :P

Saw remainders at a Meijer (Anakin/Vader, Obi Wan, Cody and Sidious), considered Sidious, but...I've never been a  big Sidious/Emperor fan. Anakin Vader looks like he's wearing a wig. Really annoyed me, because I went to two Meijers yesterday when they had the 20% any toy coupon and found no ROTS wave or battle packs or newer vehicles. This one had all three.

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.

Shadows of the Dark Side '10-'11 / Re: 2010 Saga Legends Figures
« on: September 17, 2010, 05:35 PM »
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 Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: The Rise of Boba Fett Ultimate Battle Pack

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)
« on: September 16, 2010, 09:57 PM »
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.
