The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Target Clone Wars Geonosis 2-Packs
« on: November 18, 2010, 10:43 AM »
Similar to the "Hostage Crisis" inspired 2-Packs that are out now, it looks like Target will have another wave, this time based on the Clone Wars Geonosis episodes...  pics at

- ARF Trooper Waxer and Geonosis Battle Droid
- Special Ops Clone Trooper and Geonosian Drone

While Waxer/BD are just repaints, the Spec Ops Clone looks to have an all-new tripod machine gun and new Geonosian - both are great!

Hasbro has been cranking out a lot of stuff from this story arc - Ki-Adi, Flamethrowers, Jet, Spec Ops Clone, Waxer, Boil, Geonosians - nice to see them help me fill out a shelf like that!  :)

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / TRU Geonosian Warrior and Speeder
« on: October 28, 2010, 10:55 PM »
Sounds like TRU will be getting an exclusive Geonosian Warrior (non-zombie version) DLX set this Spring... from HH:

1) Have you decided yet what set will accompany the Yavin IV Technician and Sled in the TRU exclusive deluxe assortment next Spring? At Celebration all you could offer was that it would most likely be Clone Wars themed - any chance you can let us know what the other set in assortment will be?

** Yes, we will reveal... it will be a Clone Wars Geonosian Warrior (non-zombified) on a speeder. Right now we're looking at a March '11 on-shelf date.

Gentle Giant / Gentle Giant Jumbo Vintage Chewbacca
« on: September 18, 2010, 10:46 PM »
Chewbacca and 'Big Head' Han Solo have been officially announced by GG and are now up for pre-order at a bunch of etailers.  There will be a 'small head' variant Han, which will be available as a chase figure in the Jumbo Han case plus a small quantity that will be available via the GG Premiere Guild.

If I were going to buy any of these, it would be these two.  Very tempting...  :-\

Shadows of the Dark Side / TRU Deluxe Yavin IV Tech and Sled
« on: August 13, 2010, 02:45 PM »
Hooray for Hasbro listening to us and getting this thing back out there.  I'm defintely picking up another 1-2 of these. :)

Sounds like it will be a TRU exclusive DLX set this Winter (like the Speeder Bike and STAP set were last year).

On one hand, it'll sort of suck if these have the $19 price like the STAP and Speeder Bike sets did, but on the other hand, that's cheaper than the current eBay price for the Tech and Sled.

The Vintage Collection / Target Vintage Collection 9-Figure Box Set
« on: August 13, 2010, 02:42 PM »
Target seems to be on board with the Vintage theme - this Winter they will have an exclusive 9-pack of figures - one big box that contains three vintage Kenner style figure 3-packs. 

Pic/video was blurry, so I couldn't make out all nine of the figures (I think Hoth Han was in there), but hopefully we'll get some pics and/or the presentation posted and then we can figure out all the figures included.

Shadows of the Dark Side / TRU "Battle of Endor" Pilot 4-packs
« on: August 13, 2010, 02:39 PM »
The Hasbro panel revealed two new TRU exclusive Endor Pilot 4-packs planned for January 2011.  Each set should include 1x Imperial Pilot, 2x Rebel Pilots, and 1x Astromech/droid.

No links/pics to share yet, but they were shown in the panel and should be in the booth later today so pics will be plentiful by night I'd think.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / CW "ARC Troopers" Battle Pack

for McMetal - best pic I've seen so far of the ARC TRoopers.

Looks like one of them might be this guy who was unveiled by the other day-

Gentle Giant / Gentle Giant Jumbo Vintage Stormtrooper
« on: July 2, 2010, 11:56 PM »
First up for this new line from Gentle Giant -  the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Stormtrooper 12” Jumbo Vintage Kenner Figure.  Here's the press release from Gentle Giant:

Limited Edition of 1500
Price: $85

Just like they were when you were a kid, only BIGGER! Gentle Giant is proud to debut their new line of vintage Star Wars Action figure reproductions with the release of this classic Empire Strikes Back Stormtrooper. Digitally scanned from mint 3 ¾” Kenner originals and reproduced to a substantial 12” tall. Nothing has been overlooked. Injection molded and made of durable plastics, this jumbo figure includes a faithfully reproduced blaster and is fully articulated! That’s not all, this classic Kenner creation comes packaged on a 1980, Empire Strikes Back inspired blister card with a plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this limited edition convention exclusive!

New Star Wars Animated Series in the Works

"Untitled Animated Star Wars Project Will Explore the Universe from a New Perspective, Blending Wry Comedy and Irreverent Fun"

So... is this series just more "Star Wars / Robot Chicken" mash-ups or is there actually a point to it?

If it wasn't for the fact it was posted today, I would have thought it was an April Fool's joke.   ???  :P

In the Q&A session over at HH, Hasbro has confirmed that the new Mace Windu and Camo ARF Trooper will be part of 2010 Clone Wars Wave 3 (aka Wave 16).

Completed my first deal with Lee.  Good communication and fast payment.  Thanks again!

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Clone Wars Wave 14 (aka Fall 2010 Wave 1)
« on: February 13, 2010, 09:49 PM »
On tap for the first wave in the new "Shadow of the Dark Side" (Hasbro's name, not mine) packaging:

- General Grievous w/cape
- Pre Vizsla
- Mandalorian Guard
- Aurra Sing

...and possibly a new Mace and ARF repaint.  Both were shown in the displays, but Hasbro wasn't sure they'd make it into this wave or the next.

LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — February 8, 2010 — LucasArts and TT Games today announced the development of LEGO® Star Wars™ III: The Clone Wars™. The next chapter in the award-winning LEGO® Star Wars videogame franchise, LEGO® Star Wars III: The Clone Wars will combine the best elements of all previous LEGO® games while adding brand new gameplay to make it the most action-packed LEGO® videogame to date. Developed by the same team at Traveller’s Tales that created the critically acclaimed LEGO® Star Wars and LEGO® Indiana Jones™ series, the game will ship on the Wii™, Nintendo DS™, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, and Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows in the Fall of 2010.

I'll definitely pick this one up... but I'll probably wait it out and grab it once it hits a sub-$30 price.
