I like Viggo, but I don't see it. Strange should be played by a svelter, darker haired dude.

Made the obligatory weekly stop at TJ MAXX and it appears they got in another refresh of TCW battlepacks and deluxe sets. Saw the Freeco/AT-RT/BARC/Separatist Droid Speeder for $9.99 and at least 3 Defend Kamino sets for $12.99 each.

Would love to see some Scout Bombers show up here someday.

Thanks Jayson, that is a pleasant surprise.

It was an odd game...I didn't think Romo would make it out alive after that first quarter. Their offensive line is BAD. Probably a good portent for the Skins this year though, mobile QB + shaky line can still = success.

I have to admit, Romo did what he does best...extends plays and makes things happen. The quick passes helped a lot. The Giants seemed sort of checked out of the game for most of the 2nd and 3rd quarter.

Giants better hope that secondary gets healthy in a hurry. I didn't think Tryon was even in the league anymore after the Skins traded him two years ago. Anytime that dude is on the field it is a mismatch for the other team.

Have we confirmed a price on this thing yet?

Oh for the love childhood is being raped all over again!  >:(

Everyone involved with this movie should be ashamed of themselves.

Hopefully there is no cameo by the kid who went on to do porn...

Revolution looks like Hunger Games for TV...Pass.

I don't see anything new this year that is grabbing me. Just psyched for the new American Horror Story season. And Walking Dead of course.

Excellent...thanks for the info. A quick DPCI check of the area Targets via web shows Not In Stock all around, but hopefully that will change soon. I'll need at least two for sure.

So what's the deal, is this thing coming out soon? I gather there have been some kind of developments recently - signage, shelf space clearage, DPCI, etc.

Curious for any details anyone might be able to employer doesn't want me looking at apparently.

He was engaged to that crazy chick from the Apprentice?!?

Maybe it's a brick and mortar exclusive for Walmart, but available through multiple online channels?

I agree, it's confusing. They can't seem to get out of their own way with this line anymore.

What makes you guys think we may not see this? We've only just started getting Wave 2 Revision 1 here, so it seems plausible enough that Wave 3 could make it out between now and the end of the year. At least Walmart isn't canceling that SKU ala the Class II vehicles.

Ugh, I hate the thought of having to overpay for ANOTHER Clone Wars vehicle.

ps - I saw remnants of TCW Wave 3 at another Walmart here Friday night, the lone Training SBD was a giveaway. Fingers crossed the trickle continues.

So in terms of single carded figures, I just need to find the Phase II Commander Fox and I'm done with carded Clone Wars figures for the year....  :-\

Me too...seems like store reports of finding him have dropped way off after that initial spurt. Once I find this guy I guess that's it until spring. Gonna be a weird holiday season not looking for toys, other than the Wolfpack gift set.

What do you think happens when there are no more Star Wars figures to collect? Do we try to fill the holes in our collection? Does customizing become popular again? Just looking at the classic gaming sites, they seem to have moved to creating homebrews and finding obscure packaging variations of rare Atari games.

I wonder how much this hobby will change by then.

Well, with the writing on the wall for The Clone Wars line, I am already looking ahead to how I will fill the void. I plan to focus initially on some very obscure alleged variants that have been produced, followed by foreign exclusives/alternate packaged items, followed by prototypes, and then finally turning to customizing to keep myself entertained.

I am also considering going back and picking up those horrible "realistic" Clone Wars figures from the Tartakovsky show. Man, I hated those things when they came out. Can't be worse than the crap they are planning to trawl out going forward though...
