He's an interesting choice, but begs the question, would he be...

Hologram style? That is transparent blue, how they've been doing holograms (except Jabba's palace Luke, which was some time ago)

More movie accurate? That is translucent with paint details like recent "Jedi spirit" figures.

A normal not-see-through Imperial officer? Not screen accurate, but arguably more useful as a "toy".

In theory they could do more than one of the above, but the rate Hasbro does things, especially obscure Imperial officers, that seems unlikely.

I'll stick with it another week...then a shift change at my work, I won't be home to watch....will I bother to watch it On Demand? Dunno.

I watched The Tomorrow People...it was better when it was a movie called JUMPER (yes, I know there was a 70's Tomorrow People, but I never saw it). There was no sublty in the pilot episode, villain is obviously villain, good guys are clearly good guys. Well filmed, but lifeless. Another Amnell brother whose acting is more irritating than Stephen's.

ARROW is back and now Ollie is trying not to kill the criminals. BOO!!! I guess that's more like the comics, but it leads to silly tying up baddies for cops to find scenes. Summer Glau is now on the show, so the series will be cancelled within a year anyway.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Cardback Revealed

Not surprising.  Unless they do a companion line like with the Avengers, but IIRC the new Avengers line is replacing the Marvel 4" line, so it's the Marvel small scale collector series.

Vehicles, I'd bet on a Small Winged TIE Fighter...though at current price points, how friggin' smaller could they make it?

ROTS Vader looks strange. Probably just a prototype.

Wedge throws the whole "any new figures will be entirely sculpts" bit out the window. I wish they'd made new hands, Lukes are a  bit specific in their pose.

They really don't want Hoth Rebel women to have ankle joints.  ??? I wonder if Farr's vest is removable. Lots of custom potential there (as if I do customs  :-\ )

Snowtrooper Commander looks great, even if I'm not loving plastic kama's. Yeah, he just stood there in the film, but I'd like him to do what his troops can. Gotta feeling he's gonna be a hard figure to get.

Yoda...could it be, a movie Yoda worth getting?

Luke's a mess...another mock-up, though. Not worried.

I didn't notice until better pictures that the Star Wars Rebels Stormtrooper art has a Rebel Alliance symbol graffiti over the left eye.

The rumors were true.

Wave 4 loose at Jeditemplearchives Facebook

Also, Star Wars: Rebels cardback.

Showing up at Ollies, if any one cares. Tower of Omens is  $10. Tank is $8. They had the small vehicles with figures, too, also $8. I think.


97
Didn't find any, found some CW figures (including Goji the pilot who cannot really sit!) and Movie Heroes Padme, but her head is so awful I couldn't give $4.50 for it. Oddly found Hobbit figures at K-mart that never carried them or if they put them out, put them in some place strange and unlocatable. But they didn't scan...I had them all anyway.

98
Big Lots carrying them for $5 each. 20% off purchases tomorrow for card members. $4 might not be too bad.


99
Cold weather guys and the weak sauce snowmobile were out last year here. Not the humvee though.

Yes, the tents and bunk beds are back for the first time in like 5 years. I couldn't pull the trigger at $8 for a bunk and a locker, though. No new humvees here yet...

Some people have reported finding this new vehicle

Amphibian

 TRU's True Heroes have a newer Chap Mei Chinook release in green camo with a newer jeep and 3 figures. The previous release was desert camo, had one figure and no jeep (used to include one years ago). The new one still scanned at $29.99.

  Ultron ultimately becomes one of the Avengers greatest heroes and a never-ending source of guilt for Hank. 

He's like Bender, he says he wants to kill all humans, but is really good at heart.

102
The $34 reported was with 15% off. So these are $40 (?) normally. 

103
Same list as last year. Likely to be 2014's list, too.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
« on: October 4, 2013, 10:48 AM »
I never saw that one, wasn't it a Wal-Mart exclusive? The 3 stores here never stocked them. Or the AT-ST or the band tins, early bird sets, first two comic pack waves, only one carried Jabba.

105
Jedi are boring. I appreciate any new characters at this point, though (and most more interesting characters require more new tooling). It would be nice if they made the female green Nikto (I still want to call it Klaatu)...I think it was female, from ROTS.

Speaking of Jedi army builders. You can buy super-articulated episode one Obi-Wans from Hong Kong sellers super cheap ($2 a figure or less) , but his neck joint size doesn't seem too widely compatible with many figures.
