The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: CW Deluxe Figure & Vehicle Line

Saw this over the 'Scum. The AWESOME NEW Y-WING MOLD folks really

Mini-rig in the kiddie ride version of a big vehicle style.  :P Like the rear turret (is if for astro droids?). They had a servicable concept but had to make it too Y-wingy (those engine pods look playskoolish) rather than just an "off screen" air speeder/mini-fighter.

Sooo...we have the following confirmations in the last few Q&A's

Leia Bespin
Grand Moff Tarkin
Ben Quadrinaros

ALso, either Kitster and Wald are coming this year or never. I'd say never.  :-\

According to one site's answers, Data-Viper has been cancelled. Bummer.

I don't have time to go into every detail...but why does the male Jedi stay and fight?  What's the point.  He and the girl could have made it to the ship.

Jedi get off on becoming martyrs.  ;)

Double bladed lightsabers aren't so special anymore. Also, the throwing objects telekinetically never seems to work against other force users. I think it's just showing off.

I think part of what makes it so hard to come up with Prequal resculpts, at least from ROTS, is the figures weren't too bad to begin with (generally).  Some of them did need an update though, like Tarrful for sure, but it's tough for me to look at some of those ROTS figures and feel like I'd be that interested in a new one.

Utapau Warrior/Security could be better (if anyone cared). Or maybe it was those little force unleashed guys that drove home how under articulated he is.

Or maybe the Prequals just truly are that devoid of interesting background people?

Or that there's gobs of background people...and most of them aren't interesting. Outlander Nightclub is no Creature Cantina! Senate hall is no Jabba's Palace!

At current price points, I'm also more inclined to buy Original Trilogy bit players, too.

Owen isn't a background character. He's a supporting/minor speaking role, and has more lines that Boba Fett.  

I'm nitpicking.  :D

- Chief Bast with hat on.

- Motti, yes, and if he could somehow sit and still look good standing.

- Classic original Weequay

- That remaining vintage Ewok whose name may have been changed.

- Orrimaarko, an easy-as-a-new-headsculpt for them to make.

- The Special Ed (ha-ha) Jabba's Palace Dancers...yeah, I say that as some who hated Jedi Rocks.

- Yarael Poof, he's a's almost given he will be updated...almost. Robot Chicken made this guy a must have update. Funny story, I picked up a 2002 Jedi Unleashed Game: Battle of Geonosis free at a yard sale, there's 18 Jedi icons and they include Poof, who wasn't there (on screen anyway). Eth Koth instead of Agen Kolar, too.

-The Kamino training Clone...there was no reason for the original release to be as weak as it was.

- A rebel commando that doesn't suck on some level. Vintage was close to not sucking, but Hasbro pulled defeat out of sure victory with the words "bald" and "goatee"

As we all know via Hasbro, listing a certain pair of sisters is waste of a wish slot (no offense to anyone). So, skipping them...

1. Mosep
2. Solomahal
3. Tzivvzt
4. General Bob Hudsol
5. Baniss Keeg
6. General Vanden Willard
7. Sai'torr Kal Fas (the other Saurian)
8. Boelo (one of Jabba's human goons, an untapped area)
9.Del Goren (Yavin communications operator)
10. Arleil Schous

Imperial officer and rebel pilot free! Though, I''ve certainly no objections to any of those, even remakes. Chief Bast with hat needs to be made! Update Motti, too.

Cad Solo or Han Bane...

You know, Lucas should consider abandoning the live action series idea (that will never happen anyway because of costs), and making a show like these trailers. Probably as expensive as making a live-action series, though!

Yard sale find, a completely stripped AAT droid tank (the blue one) for 50 cents. I've got quite a scrap vehicle collection going.  Also that black R5 unit from ROTJ for 10 cents, minus antenna (not clone wars, of course).

DEATH STAR II that unfolds into Ewok Village.  :P

Garage sale gold this weekend, an AT-TE, Crumb Bomber Gunship and Magna Guard fighter, along with ROTS Obi Wan Fighter, V-Wing and yellow Y-Wing for $10 total. All of them are incomplete though, especially the v-wing and y-wing.

Here's characters I hope to see return:

Cobra Commander (more of an 80s look)
Storm Shadow
Snake Eyes
General Hawk

Word is only Duke, Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow are returning. But that may mean those same actors.

Joseph Gordon Levitt and Sienna Miller have said outright they won't be back. Rachel Nichols (Scarlett) is saying she's not in it, either.

OK, let me ask then about a ROC Submarine with a GI Joe in a Tossle Cap...  that uncommon too?  I saw it this evening at ROSS, and the Lava Pod...  Saw the Lava Pod and quad with Leatherneck at Rose's, a store I believe is only east coast and new to Pittsburgh all together I think.

Yes, the Polar Sharc sub was also part of the wave that never saw mass retail release in the USA. The sub being irritating to some considering it was actually in the movie, and probably should've been released earlier.

I'd forgotten that Desert Rock Slide...a vehicle that makes no sense. Try using a ski mobile in any desert, see how far you get.

I see a fairly neat Chewbacca that  probably cannot sit. (Anyone thinking "BUT HE DIDN'T SIT IN THE EPISODE"...can jump in a Sarlacc pit  >:D)  Hard to tell if he has wrist joints or not.

Even Piel looks to have knees at least...probably more articulation than Bariss Offee

Opress looks nice, but again...short of perfect, thanks to no poseable ankles on an action character. His hips may ball jointed, that might help.

At least the astro droid still has ankle joints.  :P

Spotted remnants of this wave at a local WM today, specifically Weequay, Clone, Senate Guard and Luke. I had them in my hand but decided to pass at almost $9 a pop. I'm... not that upset to be honest.

Basically how I felt today. I did get Weequay, because at least he's never been made. Plus I'm sick of feeling how far behind the rest of the world I seem to be in even finding these damn figures.

A Wal-Mart having a shelf tag for $4.50 Saga Legends, then them  scanning up as $7.88 didn't make me happy, either.
