5POA figures aren't my thing but I'm still getting Chopper and possibly one or two more figures...  Depends on my mood ultimately, and how much I have in Reward Points at K-Mart I think.  :-X

I was thinking something similar... wait for a TRU BOGO50%off sale, toss in a $5 rewards coupon and you'll get two figures for about $4.  That's how I've been buying the Saga Legends that I've picked up so far.  Not totally sold on the Rebels stuff, but if you can get them that low every so often, why not grab a few? :P

I blew Reward $ all holiday at K-Mart combined with the perpetual $3 off $10 coupons I kept getting...  I felt like a glutton at the end, and kept worrying about spending all those points, but since KM is the only store in 10 minutes drive of me, I'm back up to $84 in points.  Hell they gave me $10 for Valentines for no reason whatsoever.  I'll buy a Biggs or something.  :D

Looks like also DePriest feels that the helmets are oversized for the phase 2 clones... which makes me very happy. I hope that his comments to JTA really mean that something will be done about it.  I'm not holding my breath, but do have some optimism here.

Read that bit myself. But I also read another Toy fair note that indicated an edict had come down from Lucasfilm Licensing to Hasbro to focus their effort on REBELS and the Original Trilogy. What does that mean where it pertains to Clone helmets?  We'll see.

Yeah, that's why I'm not betting they'll do anything about it.  I wish we had gotten something into DePriest's hands a year earlier. Not that it means it would have made a difference, but the timing certainly would have been better.

Jeff, did you get special scoops in your one on one time with the Hasbro folks?

Any "scoops" I had have been put into the relevant threads by now.  Most of my talks with them were "off the record" type conversations about the general future and health of the line, nothing about "when will character X get a figure" or "why does distribution suck" or whatever.
