What new bull**** is this??? I'll pass, thank you very much.

I'm only budgeting $30-40 for the weekend.

So I'm a poor college student. I need to save some for the books to buy at the Matt Stover signing, for stuff to buy at Celebration III, and so on. But rest assured I'll be diligently plugging away all summer in $10 - 20 increments. ;)

Valin = two Expanded Universe characters: Valin Halcyon (better known as Hal Horn), and Valin Horn, his grandson.

Kenobi = well DUH. ;D

This handle originated at the message boards (I was HuttLord from April 2002 to about August 2002, and Valin since then). I use it at a number of message boards:,, TF.N, etc.

Hey, glad to hear you guys like our site. :)

I don't normally read any of the novels (not since the days of Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy - good stuff).  Are there any Clone Wars novels that people have read that have impressed them?

Typically the consensus favorites are Shatterpoint, Hard Contact, and Dark Rendezvous.

My personal Top 3 are 1) Dark Rendezvous, 2) Labyrinth of Evil, 3) Shatterpoint.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Possible Animated Wave 4?
« on: March 27, 2005, 02:10 AM »
Pete Fett, I was thinking that 4/2 might hold some Clone Wars surprises also. It would be great, but, honestly, when was the last time new product appeared on the pegs before it showed up online?

Oh totally - that's why I think that any plans to have another wave of animated figures has been scrapped.

Unless they plan on having the figures come out at the same time the Volume 2 DVD is released. My guess is that it will be released sometime between now and the DVD release of ROTS so perhaps there are plans for more figures this summer.

You're probably right about the timing there, Pete. While I'd love to see them sooner, I'm not bummed because there's way more than enough to keep us busy until then.

The way my monetary situation looks right now, on 4/2 I won't buy more than a half-dozen figures and maybe one or two deluxe. So "not knowing where to begin" won't be a huge issue.

In a way it's too bad I can't start off with a spectacular blaze of sound and fury like I'd hoped -- but on the other hand it prolongs the fun to acquire them in bits and pieces through the spring and summer ... and fall ... and winter ... and following spring ... and summer ... and then on 75% off clearance ... and so on.

Unless I'm mistaken, these aren't a Target exclusive. ???

You know those talking M&Ms in the commercials? I'm guessing these are like that, only with sabers, blasters, helmets, etc.

Due on May 8th:

087-06-1489 - Collector Edition Stormtrooper/SW Articulated Super Clone Trooper
087-06-1490 - 5-pack Collector Cases

In light of recent developments ... how exactly does this fit with the 5-figure Battlepacks and the 3-pack Evolutions sets? Or are they all completely separate? ???

I'm adopting a "wait-and-see" attitude--like until I see pictures and details.

Normally I disdain gimmicky exclusive bull like this, but for $29.96 it's still cheaper than the EE sets.

Looking forward to this vehicle.

Lots and lots o' Wookiees. I've already got a start on my army with Yarua, 2 Sneak Preview Warriors, 1 leaked Tarfful, and a few different Chewies.

Either way, I want to get my hands on it bad.

But since there aren't supposed to be hordes of commanders or ARCs, logically it should be the plain E3 clone -- otherwise the proportions are wrong if you buy several sets.

I'll probably bring the wrath of the collecting gurus upon myself by saying this ;), but I hope the Sandtrooper is a repack from the POTJ/POTC version. IMHO that's an all-around great figure. Plus I already have two, so this way the new ones would match. At any rate, I hope he comes with white, black, or orange pauldron instead of a repeat of gray.

Now that I think about it, it will probably be in the ROTS line even though half the figures aren't even from the film (Jango, Maul, Yavin 4 Ani, Ventress, Armored Obi).

And I'll be opening 'em right up, so it doesn't matter much to me either.

Does anyone know what these will be packaged as--Clone Wars, Post-OTC silver-on-black, or simply ROTS?

Certainly these gimmicks are ridiculous and manipulative--I don't disagree there--but that doesn't mean collectors have to bite. The retailers think up this stuff because they know diehards will buy anything and everything. It's a self-perpetuating cycle I think.
