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.

Don't want to post this with its own thread yet, though if the powers that be want to they can.

Anyway, if you hate Jar Jar binks, the JD Front Page has bad news for you, and 2012.  :-X

That's it. I'm done collecting if they are going to make the first new movie Jar Jar Binks since 2002. Of all the characters they could make or remake for the Episode 1 rerelease, they are going to make one of the lead characters who had a lot of screen time and hasn't been updated in 10 years?

Got a few figures off Ebay, including Blackout (not a fan of his inability to sit), battle pack Geonosian and battle pack space Ahsoka. One that was thrown in was a Season 1-2 Obi-Wan with grey clone armor pads on his hands instead of white. Anyone know which version that is? I looked around and didn't see it on Rebelscum's archives. Or is this a hand swap "custom"?

I like the bunker raid where Han shouts "Chewie!" every minute. And stormtroopers die in droves.

The second A-Wing pilot is hilarious. I won't say anymore. It's too good to spoil.

The animatic bits aren't really deleted scenes, but  more like rejected production designs. It is interesting that the Corporate Alliance Tank Droids were supposed to be 4 battle droids.
