Shadows of the Dark Side / Re: Imperial AT-AT

Got one today for $50 plus tax. I had the coupon, but after 5 minutes of the cashier finding a customer service guy, they come back and tell me that the coupon wasn't supposed to be put online. Frustrating.

Which was probably my bad, since I'd used a black & white copy of the coupon that same store earlier in the week (before i knew about the AT-AT sale). Damn black and white printer ruined it.

The K-Mart I went to an hour earlier took the color copy I printed out, but they didn't have the AT-AT.

Oh, well.

The astromech droid is laughable. TVC is $8 - a whole $1 mainly for the packaging look - and this figure 1. has no accessories, and 2. is mostly an accessory.

What I said on the 'scum forum, R5-D4 is what we would've got free (piece by piece) had B.A.D. continued. 

Reminder, if you got one of those promotional Clone Wars Quinlan Vos TRU giftcards last month, they expire today (10/29/10)! Use it or lose it. I used my yesterday.

Hands behind back, so that probably means his sleeves are unchanged and therefore are wrong, too.

For fun, I circled the characters they could've made.

Fun for the vintage card lover, but I find that wave mostly worthless.

Yavin Ceremony Han...really? Laziest thing ever.

Stormtrooper sounds nice...but they went with the 30th Anniversary helmet "eyes and headband connected" look. Not a big fan of that.

I never got that Gree or R5-D4, but don't care enough to pay $8.

Luke looks prissier than ever.

I got the Rodian pack. He's decent. One knee was looser than I'd like, but that's just luck of the draw probably. His fingers are way too short compared to Greedo and Pax.

The Battle Droid included is an officer without the markings (does that mean he's a red security droid?). And his eyes are inbetween the "earlier, too big releases" and the "current smaller corrected versions". That's odd. Neck was looser than I'd like, but stays up if you pull it all the way up.

I got the older Kit Fisto/Geonosian set instead of the Shaak Ti one. Is it me or is Kit too short and the Geonosian too tall?

Dunno why Kenner made him so short. The 1981 one was okay for age, if boring compared to the other bounty hunters. For some reason as a young lad I intially thought his figure was a bandaged up Luke Skywalker after his confrontation with Vader or the Wampa...which just seems absurd.

What I've heard about Dengar's EU backstory, I can do without.

I think everything that happened this season took places before the end of season 1. Some stuff that happened last season did, too, not just the Admiral Trench episode, the Boba Fett story and possibly the Mandalore arc, too.

Holocron Heist may be the most recent episode in the time line...or is it Zilla beast? No idea. None. It's a damn mess. They expect kids to follow this? I can't.

The "not getting the figure right the first time" has gotten old. But I never got any Cad Bane, so...this might be the one!  ;)

I think the white suited guys in this ebay auction are the same figures.  I don't know GI Joe figures very well...

Those are Lanard STAR CORPS figures from the late 90's/early 2000's. GI JOE knock-offs, once commonly available at Toy R Us and Wal-Mart.

4) 2-piece helmet Vader has been replaced with one of the Vintage variations

Not a Vintage mold at all, but the 2006 Saga version that was based on the 500th (meditation) Vader, and had been released as part of Legends for the past few years (and included in the Grand Moff Trachta comic pack by as a straight reissue  >:( ). No ball shoulders or ankles, cut elbows...a step dooownnn.

I thought it was funny that Bossk was a christian. I mean look at the Kenner figure. Dude wears a cross. (Of all the detail they left unpainted, they painted that on!)

Seriously, I think they sort of overthought the VOTC version in one aspect, the seperately molded hose on his chest that limits some movement.

I wanted a purple suited marvel comics repaint of the VOTC version.

I just picked up the Legends reissue of the VOTC one. Much better plastic than the IG Lancer droid that reused his parts (Hasbro really screwed up that figure with rubbery plastic).

But the head sculpt is off, IMHO. There's orange dots missing from the movie's as plain as day on the card photo. Not sure making the head two pieces doesn't hurt the look, too. Also in the photos his eye stalk things are looking down (Now, how to make those poseable I don't know). The thing on the side of his head technically should be larger.

 It's still a really good figure, though. I'm not sure Hasbro would ever revisit IG 88 anyway.

I stuck an extra "secret weapon" pistol in his holster...not one of the ones he came with (mine had the old assortment from the past few years).

Based on last year's season 2 preview (Remember Death Watch Mandos being shown?) , we can expect Oppress to appear in February.

Tonight's episode wasn't as bad as I figured, but still the weakest story arc yet.

Also, didn't there use to be male heroes on this show? I mean, beside Corky the plucky Mandalorian cadet.  :P

To the show's brainwashing credit. I almost want a Mandalorian police officer figure now...except the lack of knee joints still blows.

Next week....Aurra's got a different look. I smell a future repaint figure.

$5 Star Wars figures at Target this week (Iron Man, too). The ad only shows Clone Wars. I haven't been yet. I doubt vintage will be included. But Legends probably will.
