Fordo's pistols are new, and accurate to the cartoon Clone ARC Troopers.  Very cool that they didn't just jam in the old ones.

This wave is in stock over at EE.  There was nothing, and then there was everything all at once...

Thanks for the heads up, Darby.  I put in my order - with Target at $8.99 and gas at $3.49/gal locally, it's worth the extra $10 to just order from EE and stay caught up...

I agree with Jeff - with store prices now at $9 each, it's easy to justify spending roughly $10.41 per figure. For me this is a pretty good assortment - the added bonus of Utapau Clones, Stormtrooper, Senate Guards and Rebel Commandos mean that out of my two cases I will only have the two R2-D2s and the two AOTC Obi-wan figures to find places for. Since I just bought two Obi-wans at WM, I'll probably just return them. With the R2s - I can always use him w/o the drink tray in various displays.

Agreed, 100%...  Just order online.  I pre-ordered so I'm hoping my card got charged since they showed in-stock.  :-\  I assume I got charged anyway, I'm not used to the pre-order thing.

Screw going through regular retailers if you can avoid it though.

My order is in processing.  All the prequel junk will be available in the trading forums soon!,

So glad to save the gas and time.

I still enjoy the toy runs, and just don't want all the extra figures... can't get past Hasbro's case assortments these days.  I they had 2 of each new figure per case, I'd be all over it.  But the carry forwards are killing me.

My wife won't let me plunk down $100 on a case.  Otherwise I would be all over this.  I will just have to find them one by one at retail I guess.

Someone on the Yakface forums got some loose pictures of the Weequay Sail Barge soldier. Uh, why is his head so long? I mean, if you look at one of the side pictures, you can see that his skull looks stretched out - someone on the forums compared it to the Crystal Skull aliens from Indiana Jones. Is it supposed to be like that?

Got my Weequay from Tunghori yesterday too and by moving the shoulders so the ball joint doesn't show, it looks a lot better than I thought it would

I almost got a Weequay when I ordered my Yavin techs and now think I probably should've...  Ah well, live and learn I guess.

Love his poofy coat.  Quilting doesn't look particularly wise for the desert though.

As per the front page...

New loose pics of Luke Skywalker (Dagobah Landing)...  Just in time while we wait for our cases I guess. :)



I'm still a little meh on the helmet, and could the saber hilt come unpainted like that?  The helmet deco really is becoming old hat though and I wish we'd see a dirty deco on a Luke helmet.  It's only been done twice!  Surprising now given how many times we've seen Luke in his X-Wing helmet over the past however many years.

Otherwise, a really neat figure...  A nice update to a familiar costume, with just enough change to make you dig it I think.

I like this figure, as it uses better shoulders than this.  That whole mold to me is just really dated, and doesn't look natural.  I wish they'd quit using it altogether... and it's part of the reason why I've had a bias against Rebel pilots for a while.

Anyways, is it me or does the new Luke look like he doesn't have articulated wrists?
