Did any of you guys get some for free at the WM tent event?  My wife and picked up a few to give to her kids at school.  After playing with them we actually think they're not for kids because the projectile fires pretty hard.  You might have to wear some protective googles.   :P

Today for the first time I looked these over.  I think in theory the idea is OK Who didn't play war with green army men when they were kids, heck, I even did it with my vintage figures.  However, I just don't see these appealing to anyone.  There's an oversaturation of product on the market sometimes within the same scale.

I'm a little annoyed that I didn't know about the freebies with this.  I've gone through 3 different tents now, and stopped by the Attacktix booth each time, but didn't get offered jack.  Had I known, I would've at least politely inquired into the matter.  Oh well.  Probably better if I didn't even get one, 'cause you all know damned well what that would lead to...  ;)

But after seeing them all over the place the last few days, I'm not overly impressed with them as collectibles (since I obviously wouldn't be "gaming" with them), so that's a good thing as it's one line that I won't have to delve into (for once).  Phew!

I picked up 2 boosters of these today, I kinda like them.
I got Bail, Wookie Scout, Mace, Plo Koon, Agen and Clone Trooper.
Plo had a silver base... chase figure?
I`ll pick up a booster here and there for the hell of it to see who I can get. I didn`t
get ANY bad guys at all!

Oh, and they do shoot pretty darn hard!

Please don't say anything good about these Adam.  I'm trying real hard to avoid them at all costs...  Thanks!   :P


This is probably one of those lines that I'll keep a random eye on eBay later on down the road, for a real cheap, complete set.  If I see anything along those lines, I'll probably bite on it, if not, I'll probably pass.

But when they put out the Original Trilogy Attacktix soon, that's gonna be a lot tougher to refrain from...  :-\

I`m thinking these won`t be too popular. I might get a few more, then wait for clearance on them.

I think I may get into these, I picked up a promo, they're pretty cool.

Are the promo figures different in any way from the standards, other than the baggie?

No difference at all.

Yes that is a chase.  I also heard they have ones with a gold base. 

The thing that confuses me is on the booster box it says you get a common, rare, and very rare.  I have no idea which is which, lol.   ???

I got a TRU mailer in my mail box today.
There is a $10.00 off $50.00 card on the front, and inside there is an ad
for the attacktix stuff.
You buy a starter set, and get a booster pack for free!
Starts April 10th and good through the 30th.
Also, free Lego SW mini building set with Lego purchase of 14.99 or more.

The writing's a little small, but this checklist should help.   :)

You know I saw that in one of the promos I got and didn't even bother looking at it, lol.  Sometimes the answer is right there.  I heard TRU is having and offer on these; buy a starter and get a booster pack free, not too bad.

I still don`t know how you know what ones are rare or not, lol.
I just go under the assumption that all the good ones are rare, hehe.

Went to TRU this morning to get the starter and free booster pack.
I got another booster as well. Only got 1 double from what I pulled
the other day, Bail.
Got Chewie, Shaak Ti, SBD, BD, Clone Trooper, N. Guardian, & Bail.
At least I have a few bad guys now!

I bit my lip on this one, but there were a few chromes on ebay I picked up yesterday for about $7(incl. S&H)

I'm hearing these are supposedly only 2 per case?  Could even the common chromes be kinda HTF?

And also, naturally would the chrome ultra rares be EXTREMELY HTF? I may take a chance and plunk a couple $ down on a few and see what happens?????

For those of you picking up this line, what do you think of it?  I'm personally likely staying away from it, but I have been watching a few ebay auctions for the Chewbacca figure.  I wouldn't mind having that one at least.  Of course, on there, he is considered "super ultra uber rare" ;), but I'm guessing these figures aren't too expensive individually?  Is there a price that is probably "too much" to pay for this?  I know it all depends on how much you want it and all that, but I was just curious what would be average for it.  Its not like I must have it, but thought it might be nice to pick up for the right price.  It will be curious to see where this line will go, there sure does seem to be pretty good retail support of it...Wal-Mart, Target, and TRU all have plenty of 'em around here.  I saw a kid in WM the other day who got the AT-RT and seemed pretty psyched about it :).
