I saw some of these on the pegs today at Target.  :D

Were they at the $12 price or the $15 price at Target?

I think they were $14.99? They were set up next to the Joes.

I loved it, way better than all that stuff with Pershing.

But yeah, how was that kid still alive? And what are they going to do with the “chicks”? Use them as watchdogs?

The flashback was super cool. Clones are way more accurate than Stormtroopers that’s for sure. I thought the Naboo connection was probably not insignificant too.

Nice job directing by Carl Weathers too!

I’m not familiar with the actor that voices Dr Hemlock (Jimmi something) but I’m curious if he speaks that weirdly in real life. It’s like Peter Lorre on downers.

Good to see Howzer again, and the other clones. Thought their ship was cool too. (The Leech!)

I hope the rest of the season doesn’t play out as obviously as they are setting it up.

Target had him at 50% off today too, along with Ahsoka, the Ferrrix Trooper and Shoretrooper. I bought one each of those. If the troopers hit 70% off I am cleaning them out  ;D

Nice, Rob. I love those goofy guys. I am happy to have completed a MOC collection of those before prices went crazy. I’d still like to get some of the custom unreleased ones though. And I wish they’d release a proper Blu Ray of all those Ewoks episodes!

Received Endor Leia and Skiff Guard Lando ROTJ carded figures yesterday from Amazon. Endor Han is out for delivery today.

I got a shipping notice for the Scout Trooper, but he didn’t show up, then I got an email saying he was delayed, then I got an email saying it could not be delivered and they were canceling my order. WTF??

No word on Wicket, which figures because that was the only one I actually cared about in this wave… ::)

Finally got the new Gaming Greats Battle Droid from GameStop.

Preordered the new Clone Trooper Jesse figure from Walmart earlier today after a few hours of Checkout errors.  ::)

I got one of those emails a few weeks ago about the new Battle Droid, but he never actually showed up and now I have no proof he ever even shipped.  ::)

Lots of Legends stuff hitting Clearance at Target right now, I picked up Classic Loki and He Who Remains for $12.49 each and She Hulk for $6.89. Def gets me off the fence for stuff I might have passed on otherwise.

Mostly loved it, from Emo Bo Katan to Sigmund &the Sea Monster Pirate Captain… ;D

The only thing that struck me as contrived was the stuff with IG-11…dude, just buy a new droid. Especially after he woke up and immediately tried to kill Grogu. That should have put that idea to rest then and there.

I loved seeing the Purgills too…

Well, it was awesome to see the Zillo beast again, but I didn’t care for Dr. Hemlock. Don’t really see how cloning Zillo beasts is relevant to anything, but ok. I agree it has been sort of all over the place, but mostly enjoyable. Hope they have some kind of ending planned out at this point and aren’t just making it up as they go anymore.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rumors
« on: March 1, 2023, 06:04 PM »
Whew, this is definitely a low point in the history of the line. The price, character selection etc is super underwhelming. Not only am I not buying this at full price, I went back and canceled my preorder for the other Carbonized 2-pack too, because it’s just gotten too crazy.

No intentions of buying either of those at full price, gonna hold out for a steep discount. There almost nothing that’s worth buying at the retail price anymore, except for maybe some exclusives.

It occurred to me today that this is exactly the same kind of crap they pulled at the end of the Clone Wars line, lazy repaints, repacks, halfassed inaccurate designs, etc. Not saying the writing is on the wall for the Black Series, but they’re sure treating it that way.

Almost forgot about this one…
