I'd skip the bunker. It didn't cut it in the late 90's. They've have to up its size and put somethig on the inside.

New speeder bikes might be nice, as in NEW. I dislike the Clone Wars speeder bike mold  with it's sagging soft plastic front end. The one with the At-At can even sit on the ground well, which the Kenner one from 27 years ago could do. And I actually did like the exploding feature, even if it occassionaly activated when you didn't want it to.

Months ago, I saw the leaked Comic Con footage...the link I clicked on said trailer....heck, it was the movie condensed, probably.  Saved me $7.50 in the future though.  :P

Found the Target exclusive TIE Fighter today for $13.98.

Why? Because they were out of the R/C Hailfire droid, had raincheck slips, but shelf sign offered Clone Wars Starfighter substitute for $13.98. I saw the sign...great, but they don't have any clone wars vehicles...but they had the TIE, which scanned at $13.98. So I got one.

Then I foolishly went to the other Target, and no such thing there. They had the hailfire, vehicles were the normal price. Oh, well, shoulda trusted my gut on that one, which said "it's just this store".

"The Sequel Has Landed..."

"One small stink for fans, one gigantic dump from Michael Bay..."

It's a MOON TRAP. Call Walter Koenig.

the freaky alien Bespin Guard (who you can put Needa's head on, and it looks good, to make a generic white Bespin Guard...  That's your tip of the day folks),

New Rebel Commando's head works, too. And makes another goateed trooper. Yay!  :P

Shoot. I forgot to check that out.

Friday and saturday Toys R Us having another 2 for $9.99 sale on Star Wars (Legends and Clone Wars), plus GI JOE, IRON MAN.

Meijer stores have a 20%  general merchandise items over $14.97 coupon for this saturday only. (I dont know if that's store chain wide.)

I Then they just need some good footsoldier hardware and you've got yourself an Imperial Soldier ready to roll into battle (safely behind Stormtroopers because they're pussies, of course).

Yet, taller and stronger looking (at least going by jackoftradze's photo).

Anyway, if some guys were cloned to fight and die for the Empire, wouldn't you let them go in first?  ;)

Oh, yeah, the Hoth Attack/Defense sets are $35 again (or did they ever bo back up?), of course, locally all I see are Defense sets.

My brother and I both got Kenner Lando just before seeing ESB, so he must've been cool to us at the time.

I only have the comic pack version of VOTC Lando.

POTF Disco Lando can never be topped. Ha! Muscle bound, cartoony faced and wearing bell bottoms.

Seems like they've never gotten his shirt color right.

hey Galactic Senators - ever heard of bodyguards? WTF? You people just stroll around town with no security? You deserve to be beaten!

Senator Amidala's has been targeted for death a dozen times. And she has probably had more people die protecting her than were on the first Death Star when it blew up.  :D

But she still strolls off without protection...that will be the death of her...wait, it was.

Three camps, with Original Trilogy favoritism.

Main Interests:
troopers (empire, rebel, clone)
background characters
Bounty hunters

Concept art figures
EU characters from perquel/OT timeframe
Pilots (Not a ship collector, so...)
Seperatist/Droid army
Main heroes/villains

Less interested:
EU characters from 1000 years before ANH or far after ROTJ
Astromech droids

There's exceptions, but I'm just prefer the average joe with a gun over the destined sword wielding champions. Also, astromechs don't do much...I mean for $7 or $8...I want something poseable that can hold stuff.

The CDC Dr. Jenner was a downer. Also, I find it amusing had the survivors been one day later, they'd have found smoldering rubble. But everyone got a hot shower!

Also, Doc didn't know if it was a virus or what. Okaaay...I think they'd be able to establish more what it wasn't at least.

The brain scan thing was neat.

To add to the "not picking up weapons" thing,  the doctor noting that some assault rifles were left around...

Seems to me they need to consolidate some vehicles...too many for what, 11 people now.

We are left with two mysteries (beyond the virus), the helicopter in Atlanta and what the doctor told him.

I found Rebel Commando and Wooof at Wal-Mart for $7, then found them again at Target for $6. So I will be returning a Wooof to Wal-mart. I don't know why only those guys were left. Not like one of each, either. Target had three Klaatu and four commandos...Ackbar and R2-D2 bartender really are more popular than them? REALLY?

I dislike the Commando's hunched neck, they took a page from 1996 and the Tusken Raider who liked to stare at the ground. Also, I accidently puched a hole through his trenchcoat with the packback peg. Sucks that his head isn't swappable with hoth rebels, not without carving or whatever.

Wooof is  pretty awesome.

I think the military still has flamethrowers to use, they just haven't been seen in use since Vietnam I'd assume.  I assume they have access to something though.

Flamethrowers are good for clearing out a tight-quarters area...  Just spraying and praying with them, they're less effective.

I guess they've been largely replaced by incindiery weapons like the M202 "Flash" (which I'm not real familiar with really, other than it's more a rocket launcher).

I have a feeling traditional throwers are still available in surplus though.

Possibly. But I learned that the military doesn't use them in the field as weapons from hanging around GI JOE message boards where some know-it-alls about the real military occassionaly chime in. Of course, there were like 4 different flame thrower characters on the 80's-90's GI JOE team, to heck with miltiary reality.

I liked Robonino's partner. One of the better new alien designs.

I like how they admit that Padme's elaborate hairstyles are just wigs.

The ending...what was up with that? I'm starting to think Palpatine might be a bad guy.  :P

They really need to make the Coruscant robot cops as figures. Not that they'll have anyone to protect besides Padme.

I'd like to know how Kamino went from a "lost" world outside the Republic, to having a place on the senate. "Oh, yeah, we grew the clones here. And now they are part of the Republic. THIS IS NOT SUSPICIOUS TO ANYONE."
