The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases

Very nice haul over the weekend. Finally scored El Les, the Aqua Droid and grown up Ashoka. Very happy with all 3, the Aqua Droid in particular is rather well designed. Had a chance at the new Ani as well but passed due to my budget.

Id be down for one of these if it weren't a K-Mart exclusive. We haven't had one of those in Canada for a while now. I wonder if there'll be anything new besides fancy packaging to entice other buyers. They could probably score an extra couple of sales by including pilots with these exclusive ships.

I've been waiting for a chance at the classic Y-Wing for a while after passing on the 30th AC version a while back due to lack of funds. I look forward to seeing it, I'm good for BMF treatment or even just the retooling. Hopefully it comes with a droid.

Theres a Loki coming out in a later wave that has a cape and the big horned helmet. Thats the one I'm holding out for.

I picked up the caped Thor and the Frost Giant today and am pretty happy with both, great sculpts and the paint on my samples seems pretty spot on. They're nice quality and fit in nicely with the Iron Man stuff, it looks like they'll have a nice variety of figures coming as long as the multitudes of Thors don't clog the pegs too much.

I think this Luke would have been an A for me if they'd just painted his face a bit, might have helped offset the hair a bit more as well. For a guy living in a desert with two suns, he sure is pale. Still loads better than the 30AC farmboy Luke though, which has been my farmboy Luke for some time now. Looking forward to picking it up. The rest of the wave? Meh.

Looks ok, but once again hasbro is doubleing up with a figure thats already on the pegs. Is there not already a pilot Luke out there in the Legends line? It doesn't really make sense to have another one, they really need to get a new assortment of Legends out I think.

Really nice looking group of figures, I'm looking forward to these showing up in my area. I hope these sell really well so we can see some different theme sets in the future.

Space required, so I must clear space. Feel free to ask me any questions, paypal preferred but I will do local meetups if you're in the moncton nb area. Shipping to be determined based on items, pm me for a quote, I'm in Canada, so I'd prefer to ship tracked but if you've got good feedback I'll probably let that slide. Most of these guys have their gear even if it's not pictured. Prices aren't set in stone, I'm willing to negotiate.

Fantastic! Now that's a wave. Three never before released characters, and three desperatley needed resculpts, one being a highly requested troop builder. Pretty happy with the lot of them.

Bastila-Whoo, being that i'm a huge KOTOR fan this is really nice to see, though somwhat bittersweet as she'll be lonely on the shelf without the rest of the Ebon Hawk crew.

Barris Offee - Looks cool, more arena jedi are always welcome.

Weequay Skiff Master - Kinda pofy looking, but I like it. Another unique weequay for the palace never hurt.

Dr. Evazan - Wow, finally, an Evazan that actually looks good! Can't wait to see this guy all painted up.

Rebel Fleet Trooper - Well there we go, he looks like he should please many people. Here's hoping Hasbro cranks out a whole bunch of these guys with new heads, maybe a future battle pack or somthing.

Bom Vimdin - Whoo! My most highly requested figure since they released Hem Dazon and he's every bit as great as I'd hoped. Now that Bom is coming I need to find a new cantina alien to champion for.

Really excited for this wave, can't wait!

The cantina is my focus, followed closely by Jabba's palace. Both are part of a much broader aliens focus. Loves me smealiens most of all, although I do buy pretty much everything as well.

My pegs are mostly swarming with Cloud Car Pilots, AT-AT Commanders and Dacks. The others seem to sell decently enough though. I think Hasbro might be able to solve a lot of the glut problems if they just learn to plan that first wave out better. Fill it with really high demand figures that everyone wants, preferably in multiples, because wave 1 always ends up being overshipped and causing pegwarmers that sit for a long time.

I don't really think this line is doing too badly, though I'm definitley getting sick of seeing clones in this line. I'm perfectly fine leaving the clones to Clone Wars and Legends. They could use those slots on much more interesting figures that I'm sure no one would complain about. Why not stick the 2nd Utai in there, or pack that shaven hoth trooper in there, or even pack in a "new" Hoth trooper with the old body and a new head. The same could be done for the Endor Trooper, put out a clean shaven Endor trooper. That'll probably sell a lot better that Gree for the third time over the last couple years.

As far as Bric goes, I kind of side on the fact that many of the mail away forms weren't very clear/didn't mention a figure at all for the reason Bric hasn't done as well according to Hasbro. I've bought a whole bunch of the new clone wars figures and not one of them came with a mail away form that mentioned Bric at all, just the battle mat game. I know I personally waited until this was cleared up by Hasbro before actually mailing away for it since I had no interest in paying for just the battle mat. I imagine this is much the same for the casual kid/parent buyers as well. I think this little error might have hurt Bric a lot more than any lack of interest.

I was just thinking about this line for a minute and I got to wondering how they're going to handle the comic series, assuming they're doing it siilarly to what they've done with the other marvel movies. Unlike Iron Man and Cap, I can't think of too many Thor variations, theres classic, modern, ages of thunder, king and ultimate. Is there anything else? The way Hasbro seems to do things, they could easily knock all of those out in the first wave and have no more Thors for the rest of the line.

These were on sale here in Canada this week so I finally grabbed the rebels set. (getting the Imperial one for x-mas.) The rebels set really is fantastic though, great value, especially on sale. Even K-3PO which I wasn't really that jazzed about turned out great. I'm very tempted to pick up another set while it's on sale, the two rebels look distinct enough from one another if you swap the headgear, and K-3PO is easily painted in another color. Really pleased overall. One of the best exclusives in years.
