TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - Season Four Discussion Thread
« on: January 7, 2012, 09:30 AM »
I like the potential for the rest of the season. If this arc was the "political arc" for the season, that could lead to come cool stuff; Bane is back, Obi won gets shot, Death watch returns with Ashoka's love interest...and then of course we should get the cyborg maul and savage oppress arc to finish it off. There are some great ideas on the table...now the wait is on to see what Filoni & company can do with them.... I am optimistic.

I will be seriously surprised if there is a mid range or large vehicle for clone wars this year. The attack shuttle may have been our last Clone Wars vehicle offering.

After 30 plus years I finally sat down and watched this yesterday. It, for what it was supposed to be, is really not he on screen abortion that fan lore has made it out to be. There is a plot to the story, the singing is just what was in vogue at time. I would still watch this over an episode of He Haw any time. 
 If you compare it to the movie, it does not compare, but VS. Other tv from the time it is ok. I would like to see the special edition of this when it comes out. ;D

I think what killed this, and it is a shame, because I don't think we will ever see the Twilight because of it, is that every vehicle over 50 dollars over the last three years has been over produced and forced retailers to deep clearances to empty out warehouses. I remember when stores would get one or two of a big item and the would sit, sometimes for years until they were picked up. I remember calling several places when I was a kid until I found a Hills department store that had the Rancor. Those sat in some places but when the one it had sold you were forced to travel. This year even the POS Wally world down the street had four gunships.  It seems like simple supply and demand to me. The last two vehicles that were in demand were both exclusive gunships one for walmart and one for toys r us. ever since Hasbro has been way off with numbers. Don't get me wrong I would be first to complain if I wanted a 70 dollar hip and could no find one, but I think I saw over a hundred of these while I looked for the y wing deluxe set and armored savage, neither have I still seen once in the wild.
     In short, I love bing able to pick this up on the cheap but I worry that it means less toys in the future.
      Great buy for the money at 24.97 though.

Now 24.97 shipped free site to store on the website at walmart.com if any holdouts are still waiting or you want one to leave as a base. That is like 20 bucks for the ship and 5 for the pilot.. I am thinking about it.

I picked up three flamethrower clones at the Wal-mart clearance. Could not pass on them with the price.

I also missed out on the Mini y wing. Never even sniffed it.

I am guessing Wal mart is getting ready for the new product. My store moved all of the clone wars and legends to another section and look ready to add product soon.

Found this at Wal-mart today under a wall full of pegwamers, some in damaged packaging. I am guessing this store will never get new product.
  Have yet to open it. The boy will find it under the tree on Sunday.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Most Wanted
« on: December 9, 2011, 11:19 PM »
Looking at this from the "they have done it all" viewpoint I went to Starwars.com and clicked through the Clone Wars Encyclopedia. It is far from complete, but does list 72 characters that have appeared in the show and do not have a figure. I would likely buy all 72 but the characters from their own list that I am most interested in are...

99
Darts D'Nar
Daughter
Father
Garnac (Transdosian Hunter)
King Katuunko
Admiral Kilian
Prong Krell
Satine Kryze
Cut Lawquane
Palpatine
Queen Miraj Scintel (Zygerian Queen)
Sy Snootles
Osi Sobeck
Son
Sugi
Cham Syndulla
Mother Talzin
Riff Tamson
Tarfful
Tarkin
Admiral Trench
Ziro

"if" that were the pool to select from and I could pick the fab five new figures for 2012 I would choose...

Son
Admiral Trench
Sugi
Garnac
Pong Krell


I think all five of these figures had enough screen time and are dynamic enough to sell through. Even non-clone wars collectors would pick up some of these interesting characters.

I personally think it would be super-cool if they would release the Son and Daughter as Deluxe sets, with their "Beast" counterparts as pack-ins.


This is an awesome idea. I am sure he may be the exception, but for whatever reason, my 7 year old asks about the figures from this arc every time we are at the store. If they are never made it will be crushing. I would want them in any form, but that bat/beast creature would be too cool to have.

I thought they had said that the Son was in the parking lot, but they were less than definitive about the Father and Daughter. Even if they brought back the mail in exclusive for clone wars that would make a great set.

Technically if she came with the ship it would not count as a carded release and there would still be five left  ;D

I would still like to see Trench or the son, but I would guess those chances are low.

I love playing the same teams in the playoffs each year. Most of the best rivalries were forged this way. It should be a blast to get some hate in on Boston, Buffalo, Toronto, and Ottawa. Plus everyone already hates the Habs.

Fans are big winners with every team coming into town every year.

I also like that two teams could play in the semi's one year, an then for the cup the next. With the game times mostly starting in the same time zone, kids will be able to enjoy more games.

My only loss in the changes is Washington only coming to town once. Lightning fans will miss watching Ovie cry.

I give this two big thumbs up.

I don't think I will be buying any EPI figures after today's release. When the movie flops, after a big initial week and we are stuck with those figures clogging the pegs, it will be a shame Hasbro won't ave as much of my money as they could have.

I am wondering what the fab five left for 2012 are. There are way more than five figures we have already seen in season 4 that I would wan't let alone the twenty or thirty I still am waiting for from seasons 1-3.

Ditto.. It was fun to actually see something new on the wal-mart pegs. I have to think these were meant for black Friday, but the cover up stickers probably caused a delay. Happy to have it before the holidays.

Got to ride the new Star Tours at Hollywood Studios today...and surprise, found Chewie and Plo's R series in the gift shop on the way off the ride. Now I just need to find Armored Savage and I am set.
