I don't pre-order, but I do plan to pick up the two Clone Wars figures from Amazon when they have them In Stock and ready to ship. I'm not too worried about not being able to get these, but we'll see.

Revolution has the post-apocalyptic, family trying to survive thing going on.  That's probably the closest copy-cat.  Even if it looked very g-rated silly in the promos.

Yeah, that seemed like an obvious copycat to me too, but of The Hunger Games. (Tween girl with bow and arrow, how original)

I agree there was a good bit of gore in Heroes.

The most interesting thing about those numbers to me is the fact the despite the startling success, none of the major networks have tried to blatantly rip this show off yet. That is incredible, given how stupid and uncreative network programming is. It's like they're all just conceding that they can't do anything remotely that good so why even try?

And they'd be right too.

Yup I really just want the little dropship...  I don't collect animated figures of humans (clones included) so I'd be into it if all you want is the pilot guy.  I think he has a unique helmet or something, no?  I can't recall now.

He's all new top to bottom, actually. It's quite diminutive compared to single carded Oddball or the Republic Attack Shuttle pack-in figure.

That's the trick really - finding another figure who can actually fit into that cramped little cockpit. Unless you just want to display it unmanned.

If you think about it, if they are all already infected, why does it matter if you get bitten or not? As long as it's not a fatal wound, seems like you could just patch it up and you'd be good to go. Why does Rick have to cut the leg off? It's not like he's stopping the infection from spreading or anything.

I recall that guy from the first season was in a similar situation and quickly developed a fever, delerium, etc and went downhill fast from there. So maybe it does something to hasten the effect?

The whole morphology of the virus is a little confusing...wish they would spend more time on that aspect.

Posted this over in the vintage sales thread, but Target had some deals too good to pass up tonight. I stopped by to get a price adjustment on the two Dropships I purchased in the past 2 weeks, and while I was there ended up getting a third Dropship as well as another Darth Maul Returns BP which was on sale for $17.99. Even better, with the BOGO 50% off deal, the total only came to about $26. Can't beat that with a stick.

Yeah, basically...  I figured people could figure out on their own that they need to meet the requirements, but judging by what I've read lately, many have found more than one.

Thanks, yeah,  I wasn't sure it would work if you had bought them on separate tickets, but as it turns out, it does. I took my receipts in tonight and they couldn't do a price adjustment per se, but did run them through as returns and re-purchases on the same ticket to get the deal to kick in. So I got about $8.50 back.

While I was there I picked up another Dropship along with another Darth Maul BP which was also on sale for 17.99. The nice thing is, you can mix and match any items you want, they just take 50% off whatever the cheaper item is. So those both came in at about $26 total. =WIN! :)

Thanks for posting! Looks good from the waist up, but those legs are a train wreck. Gotta fix those before final release.

Can't wait to start getting these!

Yeah, the shipping surcharge has been around awhile and was an effort to stop people from selling stuff for 99 cents with a $35 shipping charge and so on.

I don't charge for shipping anymore because I got annoyed when people asked me to combine shipping charges for multiple items won. They get very pushy in this regard so I just build the shipping costs into ther price of the item.

I have not gotten the re-imburse message before, but I may have set this up previously and just forgot. I clearly state in all my auctions that I do not accept returns, but that doesn't stop me from getting screwed under that ridiculous buyer protection policy.

Yeah, that was a really excellent debut, I was only bummed they didn't go for a two hour premier with limited commercial interruptions.

What I Loved:
ALL the zombie killing action...that is the amount of zombie killing that needs to happen every week!
Gas Mask Face-Off Zombie! (no question that gets made into an action figure)
Born-Again-Hard Rick dissing Lori
Carl dissing Lori
Rick hacking off Hershel's leg - that was epically brutal
Michonne!!!

What I didn't love so much:
Lori still being on alive, on the show, etc
Carl/Hershel's daughter burgeoning romance - blecchhh (age difference anyone?)
going through the cell blocks in the dark at the end there? What was the rush?


Not much to complain about, other than the usual. (LORI SUX)

I love how she is able to comprehend that Rick and Carl are mad at her, but she completely fails to grasp the actual reason why. It has nothing to do with her "putting the knife in Rick's hand" - it has everything to do with her reaction AFTER the fact. That she had the AUDACITY to get mad at Rick for doing something SHE SPECIFICALLY ASKED HIM TO DO!!! Damn right dude should be pissed. Carl is just taking his lead.

Those prisoners at the end are going to be fun to watch for the next few weeks.  ;)

Yeah, that design would make for a much better animated figure than a realistic one. And since there is only an animated mold for the Tactical Droids, let's hope Hasbro stays true to their own words and does this on the cheap by tweaking an existing sculpt, rather than wasting all that money to do one in a realistic style that will inevitably look atrocious.

I don't understand the comment on the front page about getting a price adjustment from Target if you bought a Clone Wars Dropship recently...wouldn't that only apply if you had bought two?

So, blah blah blah whatever, NEW DROID GENERAL!!!!

NEW DROID GENERAL!

No, I didn't catch the name either, tried replaying it 2 or 3 times too. Something like "Calamity" or somesuch thing. I'm sure it will be something silly, but who cares? NEW DROID GENERAL!

I realize it's pointless to even get excited about new characters on the show anymore, even new characters who would make totally amazing action figures, like a NEW DROID GENERAL! But still...

NEW DROID GENERAL!

 ;D ;D ;D
