Also those early Clone Wars clones (1st head sculpt) with green stripes that IIRC, were only found on eBay. Star Wars Clone Wars Grey Clone Trooper Green

Hold on, what's all this then? I don't recognize those figures from any multipack or single carded release. What's the deal? I can't believe I haven't heard about this before...any details you can pass along would be much appreciated.

The Dropship had a very limited retail appearance at a few places earlier this year, but more as a fluke, that wave has yet to really start shipping other than to online stores. I am hoping we see a few more of these as they year goes on too, or at least that Hasbro will actually put this thing up on their website for sale.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Wolf Pack Ultimate Gift Set

The troopers look to be "new" repaints, while Wolffe and Plo look like straight re-packs to me. That still makes it better than the last set.

Guessing this will hit around the holidays, probably Walmart.

So we got an extra BP and multipack for this year, that is a step up. I still want that fourth Class I ship we were promised, though that seems unlikely to happen now.

There is a big part of me that's hoping that they will be announcing the death of this sub-line at C6.

Pete, I know it's sucked collecting this line this year, but don't give up on the whole thing yet! It's still possible Hasbro could pull their heards out of their collective posterior and turn this thing around. We know they're capable of making great animated figures, we just have to hope they see the error of their ways in regard to articulation, figure choice, case assortment, and overall # of items released. (Not much, right?)

I'm admittedly biased, I don't want this thing to end yet, and the realistic style CW figures suck out loud IMHO, so I've got to cling to hope that things will improve.

WOW!  It turns out that the IRON MAN - THE ARMORED AVENGER line is turning up at TJ Maxx stores, too!  I found the concept Hammer Drone and the Movie Series electronic War Machine!

I saw some IM figures at TJ Maxx today that seemed unfamiliar. Think one of them was underground armor or something. Also saw the bad guy russian dude. Prob not the same wave but interesting nonetheless.

Bronys...there's a ton of them over on the transformer site I post on.  I've actually tried watching the show but I just don't get it.

Sadly, I have seen it a few times myself, enough to know it is a terrible show for young girls. Those ponies have some severe emotional problems...they're always ripping into each other over some stupid BS. Whoever writes that drek must have traumatic memories of childhood.

I meant to watch that but forgot it was on...will look for repeats.

I just want to see a real, live "Brony" person on there because I have a morbid curiosity what such a person would look like, if in fact they truly exist.

But Amazon isn't reliable for carded collectors. For everyone that got their order in pristine, unpunched condition, someone else got a padded envelope with a bunch of stuff crushed.

I can't take that chance for that price. I have to see what I am buying.

Yeah, I didn't want to jinx myself by starting up talk about the Kohl's thing, but that is really irritating to me. I've been stalking both of the local stores every day since JTA put that report up on Saturday and they haven't gotten jack here yet. But apparently they are plentiful and easy to obtain for others who live elsewhere.  ::)

My stores have an Embo, Flamethrower Clone and a Kit Fisto. All fine figures, but those have been out for a year now.

Just once, I want to read about somebody finding something in a store, and then go there myself and find the same thing. I'm insane, I know.

Yeah, it is really depressing...this forum has become a ghost town lately.

I am really, really trying hard to find the newest waves, but I am not having any of the luck others seem to be having, at least according to some other sites.

At this point the frustration has begun to congeal into bitterness, so I am making an effort not to vent until I have something positive to share in here.

I hope that will be soon.  :-[

Not sure where else to stick this, but Hasbro's distribution problems have been solved!

They were shipping stuff all along, these perps were just stealing all the best figures!


The Vintage Collection / Re: K-Mart Exclusive Vintage ROTJ AT-ST

I actually found these today at a ghetto K-Mart here locally. It was sort of interesting for about 2 seconds but not something I'd consider purchasing. No sign of the TCW Fox wave people are claiming is showing up there, although I did see possible remnants as they had a new Obi there.

George R.R. Martin, author of "A Game of Thrones", has slammed "Republicans and their Teabagger allies" in so-called swing states for what he calls "voter suppression."

In a recent blogpost on Martin's website, he refers to recent voter purges in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Iowa, saying that "The people behind these efforts at disenfranchising large groups of voters (the young, the old, the black, the brown) are not Republicans, since clearly they have scant regard for our republic or its values. They are oligarchs and racists clad in the skins of dead elephants."

I finally had a chance to see the new Walmart plan-o-gram too last night, and it is different from the one shown over at JTA. This one had 3 pegs for TCW, 3 pegs for Vintage, and only 2 for Legends. There was designated space for the Class I series, but Class II was no longer included.

There was nothing on there about DTF, but as stated above they just fill all the pegs with that garbage anyway so obviously that means nothing to them.

And good luck squeezing any MTT's on that aisle.
