Alright I'm officially asking that if anyone finds another Dropship when they're out and about, and even wants the pilot themselves, I'd be interested.

I don't want the ship.  Is that what you're after?

I found the Dropship at Target this week.  And just like you guys, I am now done with TCW until the Wolffe pack is available online.  Kinda sad, seeing how there is such little support from Hasbro for this show.

Snagged the Maul target set and Villians Snags set at Target for he sale price, and then stumbled onto the Training battle Droid, Wolfe, and Fox, at my local backwoods Walmart when I stopped to get some hairspray for my daughter. The prices were 9.99 a piece so I only picked up the Battle Droid and had to debate about Fox. If I picked him up I would gave felt like a scalper since I already bought one online. These should be hitting in force if this store (that has not restocked since February) has new stuff.

Well, you can always go back to the store and pick one up for a fellow collector, who can pay really quickly via paypal.  (Hint, hint).   ;)

I'm with you guys, in that I would have much preferred to get this on the shelves at Walmart.  That way, I could pick the one with the best paint apps.  But this is not my world, I just live here.  So, I guess I'll be ordering this set online.  I only want the two clone troopers, so I will gladly sell/trade the Wolffe.

LMK if you want to part with that Nightsister.  ;)

I do, as well as the Savage.  Got a trade list?

After hearing all of the reports (and reading this thread), I drove to my local Target last night with my daughter, and the shelves were just busting out with this set.  They were six-deep.  I was able to examine each one of them in order to find the best paint apps on Maul.  (He's the only one I want from this set.  I have no interest in the Night Sister; and I already have Opress).  And I was pleasantly surprised to see that this set rang up at $19.99, not at the $22.99 price that was advertised on the shelf. 

All in all, it was a good weekend for collecting toys, since my local trading buddy was able to get me the new TRU-exclusive Speeder Bike.  So, I have plenty of new stuff to hold me over until the holiday shopping season sets in.

2013 Droid Factory = Cancelled / Re: 2013 Droid Factory Wave 2
« on: September 4, 2012, 04:39 PM »
I am most excited for Rex.  The others?  Meh.  Biggs and clones and EU filler - not much to get excited over.  That's how I see it.  But, I'll probably buy them all.   ::)

I just got back from Target, and I saw the Scuba Ahsoka wave again. That's the second time I have seen this wave in one week, and at two different Target stores.  So, start checking regularly, since this may indicate that this wave is about to hit in force. Still no sign of Fox, though.

If there were any differences, I'd say that that Hasbro's image looks to have a grayer look to the deco whereas the carded figure was more blue. I guess we'll only know when these actually hit retail.

Ah, I see.  Thanks.  I was hoping that this newer Wolffe might be getting a slight upgrade in the knee department, kind of like 2013 Rex.  But this pic over at BBTS kinda makes it look like that this will not be the case:

Like I said in the "Future of the Clone Wars line" thread, I'd much rather they cancel this line altogether then keep it limping along like it is.

No offense, but I would much prefer to see it limping along than not at all.  At least with a limp, I can get some figures that I like, such as the three repainted phase 2 clone troopers (501st, Sinker and Boost), another phase 2 Rex (this time with articulated knees) and cyborg Darth Maul.  I am still holding the torch for a General Krell figure, too!

What I find interesting is how my attitude toward Hasbro has changed over the last year.  I used to take them at their word, and I used to rely on what they told us.  Now, not so much.  They have been telling us (such as at CVI) that this line is geared toward children, and that they are making changes to it in order to maximize their experience with it.  So, in 2012, we saw Obi-Wan, Boss, Wolffe, Fox and Rex with no wrist articulation, and Rex, Scuba Ahsoka, Wolffe, Fox and Boss with no knee articulation.  Okay, I assumed that going into 2013, we would no longer see figures with wrist and knee articulation.  But fast forward to the CVI slideshow, and the new Rex appears to have knee articulation, and the new Obi-Wan appears to have wrist articulation.  Huh???  I just wish that I could predict what they are going to do based on what they tell us that they are going to do.  But that does not appear to be the case anymore.

This is a straight repack of Wolffe, right?

I was able to find Scuba Ahsoka and Commander Wolffe at Target.  I also picked up a Snow Plo just because I didn't already have it and decided to give it a shot.  Better to have it and not want it than to want it and not have it, I say.  Until Fox shows up in my area, I am all caught up on TCW figures, except for that final dropship that you collectors have been talking about.
