A long time ago I got one at Suncoast for about $7. But I'm not giving him up.  :P ;)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: More Target Exclusives?

The Micro Vehicles and Lava Vader don't do much for me. I'm withholding judgment on the Cup sets. But the 5-packs and Stormie/SA Clone packs sound promising. Though something tells me they'll be scarce--particularly if Target does something boneheaded like restricting the number per store (a la Lava Vader). ::)

At a MN Wal-Mart I saw three Tarffuls, 1 Droid Attack R2, and 1 Spinning Yoda. I only bought Tarfful; the other two aren't high priority so I'll get them later.

Tarfful's sculpt is pretty good, but the paint should be near-black instead of chocolate brown. The articulation, while passable, isn't spectacular.

That's frikkin' fantastic! I love all the clones and army builders, particularly #49, Commander Baccarra--really medieval, and also McQuarrie-esque for some reason. And I'm glad the Wookiee Warrior isn't just a repack from the SP Wook.

Agreed about the Clonetrooper, seeing that SA one on the way makes the first one avoidable.  I'll probably pick up 1 if I see it, but won't be army building with the "quick draw" version.

I was thinking the same thing, though there will be 3-packs to consider as well.

Glad to see Tarkin in the lineup too, I actually don't have the POTF2 one, so it would be neat if they did an "old" variant down the line somewhere of this figure ;).

Great idea! I don't have the old one either, and either way it would be great to have a better-articulated version.

Very nicely done sir!

And I see you have the Action Fleet Gunship. Lucky &*^*&$^. ;)

Collections / Re: KNASHDX's Collection

Great collection, knashdx! Nicely organized as well. :)

So far I know that one Toys R Us is doing it; I'm on board, but it's a bit of a drive from where I live. If one happens closer to home I'll defect.

Last Saturday I went to a convention and one dealer had roughly a dozen basic figures for $10 a pop. He said he found them in some store.

I didn't buy any, for two reasons:
--In a month or two they'll be everywhere, and I'd be kicking myself for overpaying.
--That's the textbook definition of scalping, and I'm not going to support such behavior. I did get $40 of POTF2/EpI/POTJ/CW merch, which likely came from stores as well, but I rationalized that somehow it doesn't count because the stuff is so old now. ::)

So far I've only found the ROTS lightsabers.

If I found leaks in a store, I'd sure as hell buy them. But I'm not going to pay through the nose on the secondary market for figures that will be everywhere in a month's time. I'm eager for them to get here, but not that impatient.

And just for kicks ... PM me, Zod, for I am curious. :)

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?
« on: March 2, 2005, 06:53 PM »
The cost to tool 3 molds (or more) for 3 figures like they did with the AOTC 3-packs though would actually run the company more.

Can't they just pop new heads onto the previously molded bodies?

« on: March 1, 2005, 03:18 PM »
Yeah, with what we are getting in the basic figure line with some really well articulated figures, I do think a ROTS 3-pk would be nice to fill out dioramas a little cheaper.

Agreed. I don't need loads of SA troopers when most of them are just going to stand around looking badass. 3-packs serve that function just as well, and are much cheaper per clone.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: 2005 RotS Figures Release List

Scroll down for a list of all toys, vehicles, figures, Unleashed, with some cool new items (like Clone 3-packs (yay!!!) and a "bigger gun" Spider droid). Beware of SPOILERS.

I'm planning some army-building with the clones, however for the basic infantry I'll only get a couple at first. I'll wait until the different versions are out--regular, Super Articulated, "Mission Specific", 3-packs, etc.--before I go ape**** on any one model. For example, I don't want to get stuck with loads of the first basic CT if a later sculpt turns out to be better.
