not a huge find but i did score the gi joe mech suit @ Ross on Friday for $7.99.  no sign of any other Joe stuff tho.  I'm still holding out hope that some of the stock pulls from Target/Walmart will end up at Ross and the likes.

now i know most people hated the clone, most complaints seemed to be about the greening of the helmets.  but that was a pretty easy fix for me.  my only real complaint was the fact that the hip joint was black/white.  While H seemed to correct the problem on the Utapau version, the fact that the all white was "striped" totally turned me off even for the potential of dropping $8+ to customize.

and far as the stormie i liked, again helmet coloring not an issue, but i already have so many plain white stormie i never really felt a need for more

BUT..... if we see these being shelf pulled and say going over to Ross/TJ Maxx and whatnot I might reconsider my position  ;D

good times....good times.....

i weep for u your purpleness, with post offices soon to be closing left and right i fear u will never be found/delivered

I don't have time to go into every detail...but why does the male Jedi stay and fight?  What's the point.  He and the girl could have made it to the ship.

Jedi get off on becoming martyrs.  ;)

Double bladed lightsabers aren't so special anymore. Also, the throwing objects telekinetically never seems to work against other force users. I think it's just showing off.

i'd like to see them use something like the role playing toy they had a year or 2 ago that had the normal size blade on one side and a shoto, yoda size, blade on the other

I'm psyched...

No, seriously, I am.

I wanted realistic from the get-go.  Hasbro confirmed back at Toy Fair they were doing realistic figures from CW in the line, so I wouldn't say it's just getting confirmed now...  Real news would've been confirming WHO they're doing.

But like Jeff said, this was seen a mile away.

They showed a great realistic Anakin to us back a while...  I forget if it was us who asked the "realistic Clone Wars" questions back then, but that Anakin has stuck in my head ever since I saw it.

For me, this is huge though.  What I'd like to see?

-Anakin...  There is no CW Anakin in that outfit, with that hair.  I'm excited to add it to the collection.  I want an Ani as he appears for most of the war.

-Obi-Wan...  Obi's mostly like his ROTS character, simply in his partial armor.  Like Anakin, I'm all for giving that a go.  I was going to try my own custom of him but this saves that.

-Ahsoka...  Definitely.  I want both her young and maturing look too.

-Rex...  Ideally, we'll get both helmets.  Rex was going to be a bitch of a custom to do, with all the paint details on his armor.

-Cody...  Early War Cody?  I'm all for it.

-Clone Repaints...  I'll take them.

I don't foresee them doing too many secondary characters, but I could see a new Assajj coming out, possibly some of the secondary Clones will get unique headsculpts in the realistic style too.  I'd be all for seeing that stuff.  I don't expect to see Whorm Loathsome, or Ziro the Hutt...  Not even sure they'll risk Cad Bane (Duros look generally thin anyway, so I like the last Bane that came with TODO as a realistic figure.  Even the Deluxe looks pretty realistic).

I've passed on MOST animated figures.  I don't own any Anakin, and I think I only own Obi-Wan from a Freeco bike...  A few pack-in Clones here and there.  Eh...  I've largely avoided animated except for droids like the IG-86 droid, or Yularren's on clearance for the table.  I'm definitely interested in these realistic CW figures though, and how Hasbro can do them in the realistic line.  That Anakin sculpt is stuck in my mind, and it was incredible looking.

Oh, and an "adventurer outfit" Padme wouldn't hurt either. ;)

i just hope they don't use the new phase one trooper body for the clones, i'd hate to by them just for helmets.

i'm psyced about it.  something "new"  i know every old school collector, like myself, want all of Jabba's troop and every alien in the Cantina and I can't wait for the definitve version of Bespin Han. BUT it'd be nice to have some 'new' non animated characters that aren't from 25-30 years ago.   Hate the CW or love it most of it does fit within the storyline of the movies and is better then alot of the books that have come out.  My real concern is if say Ahsoka would they make the younger season 1 & 2 version or the current 3 & 4 version.  Current Obi/Anakin are easy enough of a custom I wouldn't even want Hasbro to bother making them.

Legends Clearance Spreading

Some reports of the Star Wars Legends line getting clearanced for $5 at Wal-Mart stores have been coming in over the last week, including my own find recently. Some great army builders were available too, so it's a good time to stock up if your stores are joining in this purge.

YES JOIN ME OR DIE!!!!!!!  >:D

while i'm still on the fence on the new AOTC clone now that I have one I did find it interesting that Cody and AOTC clone head are pretty good fits when swapped
not perfect but if that any indication for those that don't have new clone yet take that into consideration.

jeez Jack you've been busy.  so a little hard to tell with the kama's/pauldrons on but the ARC's you have pic'd are they the new clones with legs boil n pop'd with the original ARC's?  OR are those just the normal ARC troopers.  And by the way color me jealous of not only the army of new clones but also the Kota militia troops and the killer displays u got going on them AWESOME.  Care to share who  the Ebay seller is for the clones?
