1801 is back online with some coupons for the Easter season.

$2 off any Star Wars purchase of $10 or more.  more for other toy lines as well.

One coupon per computer it seems. I tried deleting cookies and temp files. Maybe if I uninstall their stupid coupon printer program.

I agree, it's silly that Wookie would have  energy weapons, escape pods and helicopters but not even interplanetary shuttles (not having massive space cruisers, I could believe, but something interstellar/hyperdrive capabile hardly seems out of character).

I was just looking at the Episode Guide for "Wookiee Hunt", and didn't realize that one of the trophies in the Trandoshan's ship was a very familiar looking crystal skull - kind of a neat easter egg.  I guess I missed it on the initial viewing.

Trandoshans can hunt in the spaces between spaces.  :o

$6 Clone Wars figures at Meijers stores next week. I know Meijers covers a limited area, but in the past I got sick of sales reports at Ollies, Fred Meyer and the ever annoying Ross mentions (where you can buy cancelled toys for a nickel and sell them on ebay for $500). So this is payback.  ;)

Anyway, I don't know if it includes Legends.

Some Lego sale at Toys R Us next week, spend $30 get one of those blind packed minifigs free. I think the Mando and Clone minifig packs (or whatever) are on sale, too.

Seems to straightforward to have that many from that one story. Also, the implied battle droid two-pack (OOM and droid) for Clone Wars sounds too good to be true.

I'd believe Echo, maybe Gallia. Keeli is so so, an easy repaint but they aren't making the characters he was seen with (But then they made Mando cop and Satine, etc, so that's probably irrelevant). Speaking of such, I'd expect Greedo to be made before they got around to Citadel characters, ones that require new tooling, anyway. And the Mortis folks, too...but I'm thinking too much in order of episode aired.

Mon Calamari battle revisisted. They made the old Scuba Clones obsolete, too.

Adi Gallia is back, maybe to die?

Phase 2 helmets don't seem as off movie model as animated phase 1 helmets were. And the belts are movie style now, too, at least in some shots.

Various clones
Deluxe Fisto with aqua jet thingie.
Scuba Ahsoka
Jettster Jedi

And if Hasbro doesn't reissue the Clone Wars Magna Guard after seeing that trailer, they have no souls.

No. I was going to but was distracted by something else and forgot. I may check that Wal-Mart again, because they actually had Battle Droid 2 packs. Wal-Mart around here are notorious for having stuff in the clearance area that is still full price, like GI JOE, which apparently they've dropped but are in no hurry to unload.

Received my order of Wave 6 from HTS today - I'm now officially done with Wave 6 - I keep hoping that Wave 5 will come back in stock or I'll find it at a Target or TRU...

I finally saw some Wave 5 in a Target. Got Death Star Escape Luke, R5-D4 and Yoda. I stocked up during K-Mart's buy-one, get-one-free sale in November, so these will only cost $4.50 which, for reworks, is fine by me.

That's just like stealing!  :o  (I'm kidding...but I didn't know any store's receipts lasted that long.)
I finally refound Ackbar at a Meijer, and bought him. They had another one without spots on his head and left arm. Finally saw sail barge R2, too. But cannot bring myself to spend $8 on him.

I went to a Wal-Mart that I hadn't been before that's within reasonable driving distance (which is less and less due to gas prices), and found 9 of these TIE Bombers on the clearance aisle...for $39 each.  :P

In the grand tradition of Wal-Mart I expect them to remain that price each time I go back, until one day they disappear with never sign of being marked down.

The Tungori RFT reminds me of Henry Fonda.

Trannies stealing lightsabers...I heard that happened at San Diego Comic Con 2009.

I'm curious why the wookies need a bounty hunter ship, they don't have their own? Reuse existing characters and ship models...that's why. Answered my own question...wheee.

Padawan Lost and Wookie Hunt. (I won't write their x-rated parody names in my head)

Barely there Turbo Tank cameo! Felucia! Yay! Dwarf Spider Droids (time for an updated one, Hasbro!)

Jedi don't kill out of anger. Even if the dude will be trying to kill you again later?

Racist episode, all-in-all. Reptilian aliens once again portrayed as cruel killers and mammalians as noble creatures.

Seriously, Bossk is some how the more civilized of his kind? (Gha Nachkt moreso, at least he was just a treacherous junk dealer)

Takeel died...maybe he'll be edited out of the 3D ANH. Okay, okay...all Sniviians look alike.

Sort of a cop out that Chewbacca was the only prisoner on that landing ship, like we needed to know that Ahsoka and company didn't accidently kill anyone.

Chewbacca sure likes to toss people off of high places.

Plo Koon gets to offer the sage wisdom while Yoda is silent. I'm not complaining, forget that little green snot. Plo is the man.

Problem with this two parter...I saw it last year in theaters as PREDATORS. Also, we did the Ahsoka on the run from pursuers in the last arc. Replace droids with Trandoshans, warden with head Trandoshan, clones with younglings, Even Piel with Chewbacca. Maybe they should've spaced out some of the arcs more.

Really an odd season where previous bad-guy poster boy Grievous appears like once. Also, once again, I'm blown away with their follow up on Death Watch.  :P

1. Tikkes
2. Onacanda Farr (they'll never make a Clone Wars version)
3. Dorme
4. Ko Sai - Kaminoan Cloner
5. Toonbuck Toora
6. Jar Jar Binks (Senator)
7. Denaria Kee - Passel Argente's Aide
8. Lunae Minx (heavy set Twi'Lek aka Outlander Club Lucas's Daughter)
9. Onyeth Canavar (just for a unmade alien species)
10. FA-4 (Dooku's pilot droid)

Honorable Mentions:
Que-Mars Redath-Gom
Gilramos Libkath
Hermoine Bagwa

The Vintage Collection / Re: What Would Be "The End" For You?
« on: March 29, 2011, 12:16 AM »
I'd say when figure started costing more than $_______, but I've sold out on that stance many times.

Actually, finances aside, what's happening locally is more of what will make me quit, not finding anything in stores. I'm not an "order a case" collector, nor will I pay more than retail via online merchant or reward losers who scalp action figures. If I can't find most of it in stores, forget it. I want to see what I'm buying. Essentially that's what happened near the end of POTF2 with the EU wave. Never saw a one, and that ended my completist era.

Odd thing at Wal-Mart today, some older Clone Wars releases rang up at $7.88 (Shaak Ti and young Boba Fett), but oddly both had UPC stickers over their normal UPC's. A lot of the figures had those stickers, though most scanned at $6.50.  Hell, anyone could put those UPS labels on Vintage to get figures for $6.50, using the self-scan checkout (assuming the store has one), who'd even notice? Not that I'm recommending it.  They do have cameras everywhere these days.

I don't know who found vintage cheaper at Target, but they are not in this area.

Recent stop at a local Wal-Mart saw that the Legends and Clone Wars were rolled back to $6.50. Vintage still $8.99. Nothing I wanted from any of the three lines, anyway, though.
