I don't supose anyone has heard anything on the rumor mill about whether or not we're going to see a round 3 of these shipping?

I really like the Stass Allie Pack in figure. She's not bad at all for a pack in. In fact..I like her over any Adi Gallia Hasbro has produed over these past few years.
This sucks. I don't even remember those clones from the movie,
I wish the mock up pack was one of the sets. I would have been very happy with one of each color.
So let's see, we got a red Commander Thire who is arguably not even seen in the movie, jet pack clones who aren't seen at all, a $12.99 Target "exclusive" (eBay exclusive) clone that has Neyo legion markings, but not a Neyo legion helmet that has no role in the movie, 2 different white clones which barely have roles, and the 2 colored clones in the deluxe pack which also are not on screen.
Should we not have orange Cody clones, blue 501st temple raid clones, and red coruscant clones instead?
I feel like what we've gotten so far is from a different movie than the one that I saw.
On top of that, let's face it, these 3-pack clones look like total garbage next to clone #6 and clone #41.
I think the lackluster performances of AOTC and TPM (as far as public opinion goes) really hurt ROTS's chances... People sour on a franchise and I think a lot soured on Star Wars after 1999 passed us by.
I keep telling the people that it's actually AOTC that contains the worst crimes against acting, dialogue and use of CG, but no one will listen
TPM wasn't that bad....no...really!
I'd keep the rubber band on Exploding Grievous. I cut the one on mine off (stupid) and now his torso doesn't stay with the legs.
I got another rubber band to put around him, and it's hidden well by the cape, so I like like it better this way.
Yeah, and IIRC, I think we may have one in the OTC section too, where we were expecting these 3 cups to actually show up. So, what's the going price on a set of them from the OTC Japan line? I have a bad feeling I'm gonna have to pony up for those now...
Actually, they were NEVER "officially" released in Japan as other sites would have you believe.
As an intrepid reporter once said, only salesman samples ever showed up on eBay for the cup sets in the OTC packaging. Only a VERY few ever showed up on eBay, like 1-3 sets that I ever saw, all from the same seller.
Amazon Japan took pre-orders, but the pre-orders were never filled, they just kept postponing the due date every month for about 9 months, then finally gave up.
In fact, most Japanese e-tailers that still have the OTC version for pre-order now mention the new packaging.
Yeah, looks like the price hike's gonna be across the board here, with most/all WM's joining the fray with their new $5.88 prices, so they can remain "competitive" with Target after their similar price hike...
I just read a report on GH about the cup sets selling for $12.99 now.
