Yes, I had to search around to figure out what line it was release under....the sort lived Yoda packaging!

I have two full sized Fighter Tanks I got last year that I also need parts for...if I'm gonna keep them. Too bad they never made an Empire At War version (though those things sucked in the game so much I rarely built them...their best feature was that they could hover across water).

The Clone Army  hover Tank that only appeared in video games. They call if Republic Fighter Tank for some reason. This is the version they remade smaller and cheaper.

I've yet to encounter anything on clearance but I don't frequent stores like I used to.

 :( Just read that. Pinned between a car and a brick mail box. What the hell? 

Yelchin was a good part of otherwise so-so movies like Terminator Salvation and the Fight Night remake.

Ron Lester, 'Varsity Blues' Actor, Dies at 45. He was Billy Bob and played a parody of his own character Reggie Ray in Not Another Teen Movie. Also in Good Burger and Popular.

Garage sale gold. Another clone wars Jedi fighter (incredibly with all missiles), Corporate Alliance Droid tank missing a few parts, a BARC speeder (the wheelless version) with 501st figure, a tri fighter (might be ROTS) and a V-19 torrent missing an engine, a missible and the canopy (but I might have one some where). Also loose obi-wan and anakin...yawn, though it was cloth skirt Anakin. The rest of the stuff was other collections.

I found that Movie Heroes Fighter Tank  (missing the launchers) at a yard sale.  It's good to find anything action figure related at a garage sale, and I paid 50 cents for it but damn, what a hollow thing....they wanted $20 for that?

I never got $10 AT-AT's.  :'(

I still never got the cruise missile trooper. The idea of a non-removable figure was offensive. Strangely, in all my garage sale goings, I've never come across one or parts of one.

Most of modern Star Wars' play sets have been half-baked.

The POTF2 ones were more like set pieces for a stage version of Star Wars. The most realized set being the Hoth one, which was of course, the one of the four that needed updating from vintage the least (and they still got the turret wrong). I never owned the carbon freeze set, though...was that POTJ?

The cardstock diorama set were great display pieces, but a kid would destroy those in a few days.

Episode one...the generator duel wasn't much. The hanger was hampered by the Qui-Gonn electronic WOOKIE RAGE Jedi attack figure (it was sort of fun to make a small Liam Neeson attack everything). Oh, and that R2 case that was sort of a trade federation hall way. Yeah.

Episode 2....the Geonosis Arena had potential, the idea of smaller sets connecting to it. But it didn't look good. I never owned one. Later modded in COBRA MOUNTAIN...why did Cobra have battle droid parts on the floor?

Episode 3. Akator Mustafar....if they'd made the bottom a separatist control room, it would've felt substantial instead of just a big stand for Anakin and Obi-Wan.

I sort of understand Hasbro. There were always large vehicles they could make instead.

Yeah, they were shelf warmers, but by then there was a glut of Star Wars product building up everywhere.

Air speeder was cool. The pilot was oddly quite tall.

The Cloud Car was a disappointment for me at the time. Maybe because the real deal was better and wouldn't be made in the modern line for a decade. And the silly shooting nose cone (means every time you find a used one, that nose is missing!)

The Rebel Speeder Bike is worth getting, even if it seems more like a riding lawnmower.  :P

Well, it's still PG-13. Wolverine 3 will be R.

Apocalypse isn't doing as well as hoped, at least compared to Days of Future's Past.

But it really looks like TMNT's film franchise might be dead now.

Found Goss Toowers, Sarco Plank and Atsy at Wal-Mart.

Whoo-hoo.  :P

Finally saw it. I didn't care for some of the opening fight scenes' style, either.

I'd forgotten how Zemo got all that info. It's only been hours.  :P

His plan depends on room service being nosy. "If she doesn't look in the bathroom, my plan is doomed!" Or something.

The character was so-so, because the actor didn't do much for me. I don't know why they bothered to call him Zemo, though.

How did Iron Man know who Spidey was? Is he like Lex Luthor in Dawn of Justice. RICH GENIUSES CAN FIGURE OUT ANYTHING...cuz rich...and smart.

Next movie
 Stark: "That's you, isn't it...BROTHER VOODOO."

Ah, the reveal...hard to take after too many super hero movies. I mean, Jack "Sandman" Napier killed Tony's mom and dad? Was Tony's mom's name Martha?

Anyway, it was good.  Nothing terribly wrong with it other than Chris Evans' lack of charisma and Winter Soldier's supporting lack of charisma.  :D
