This is good news only if they make Rick Duel, Dani and Chihdo.

IIRC, the plan was to use a digitally recreated Cushing, but they couldn't make it look right. Instead they heavily made up Wayne Pygram for what amounts to less than a minute of screen time.


Maybe he is coming real soon...  More info here

Wow, someone ages badly within 3 years!

Never got the OTC version. Looks like a salt shaker with cut elbows being the only poseable parts.

I prefer the old 1983 Kenner one, I mean as a toy. Staff was never much of a weapon, though,

80's Yak-Face repro on vintage card.

The roar of some die-hard collectors' anger would be worth it.  >:D

Yeah, for a second I thought it turned into a robot, too.

I'm hoping Legends last long enough for them to change the secret weapons to include Rebel fleet trooper blasters, stormtrooper pistols and rifles. Lightsabers would be nice, too...but unlikely. I like extra weapons...but I want more OT ones.

  Other stuff I thought was lame, like the Yuzahn Vong's blatant rip-off of Star Trek aliens that were around at basically the same time, and offing Chewbacca as a publicity stunt.  

I thought they were a rip off Cobra-La and/or the Tyrannids from Warhammer 40K. With some Hellraiser thrown in, maybe.

In regards to the Overlords arc...all three of those force wielders need to die, really. The Jedi and Sith already have too much power (Look at the destruction their rivalry has caused), three demi-gods...does anyone wonder how the normal people feel about all these superpowered types running around? That's what the arc is missing. A person who says "all you force users are too dangerous".

It was sooo noble of the daughter who was dying anyway, to revive Ahsoka. Wow. The light side is sooo awesome.  ::)

Not shipping stuff half the year really paid off!  :P

Also, charging more for cheaper retro packaging.

4 Wedges a case, huh?  ;)

I've never seen R2 from that wave. I may have seen Luke once. I can't remember. I rarely buy Lukes; they always look bad to me. The ROTJ ones that lingered here, barely, were Wooof and the Commando.

They need to cut back on ARF Trooper. Find another repack. Cody, too.

Death Star Trooper? Really? That's nice...except the figure kinda sucks.

Space Trooooper...will be hard to find.

Stormtrooper will probably be VOTC, meaning it'll look good but lack ball hips the worse looking Vintage figure has.

Super Battle Droid is odd, for a buck more you get retro card and a tiny pistol (also no stand/card and "secret weapons"...but). It would be hysterical if it was the Arena series version with ankle articulation.

Destroyer Droid...same old version...never got one...don't care, I never liked Destroyer Droids much.

Beau B. Fett, stock photo, they all are, no idea what they'll use.

SHould've kicked Windu out of the case, and had Snowtrooper in there.

Though, if nobody noticed, that is a CLONE TROOPERLESS Legends case. And that's surprising.

BAD protocol droid parts make this an easy future release for Hasbro.

Vintage Kenner was different in that it replaced old C-3PO in the line-up, the original was removed from cardbacks.

Yeah...might go tomorrow. All they had last friday was a battle droid 2-pack and some undead geonosians....but I wanted in on that supercharge promo, and tomorrow is the last day. stuff I don't need to get something random free... :-\

Those are all very good points.  Trippy as it was, it did flesh out some things that should have been in the movies.  Qui Gon - why doesn't Obi Wan question what he is at all?  They need to reconcile this with the scene at the end of ROTS.

Was this Qui Gon?  Or a false image like Shmi?

QUi Gon seemed to impartial to the trio. Why would a false image warn Obi-Wan that there were 3 beings there who sought to control Anakin's destiny? The Shmi image was trying to push Anakin in a certain direction.
