If they decide to do this with the Clone Wars line, there are a ton of good candidates. Personally, I want my Betty Droid, dammit.  ;D

2867 I speculated, some Hasbro oaf just put the $%^&* Movie Heroes Battle Droid in the Clone Wars section by accident. Christ, even their employees can't tell them apart.

So yeah, we got absolutely nothing to talk about. It's be laughable if it weren't so pathetic. They couldn't even rustle up a Republic Dropship to show off with the Class I stuff. Best they could do was the sub and recon fighter, which I already have 3 of already.  ::)


So...let's talk about all that SDCC Clone Wars love!


Ummm...they showed a red battle droid?

Yes, some doofus probably just stuck the MH figure in the wrong cabinet. Or maybe that is the mysterious 19th carded TCW figure for 2012.

Um, I saw a nice shot of Fox's back?

They brought the Republic Sub too. Woo hoo!

Please post here if anyone comes across anything noteworthy for this line the next few days.

Hey, it could happen!

I love that Hasbro brought out all the Wave 1 TPM vehicles to show off in the displays, in case you didn't get a good look at them on the clearance aisle of your local Walmart the past 3 months.

Looks like a big bag of suck to me so far, though as others have pointed out, it is early yet.

Curious though, if you had advance floor access to the Hasbro display, wouldn't you try to take pictures of the "new" figures? Specifically, the ones on the secret mystery shelf right below the 2-packs? It would only take one clear, head-on photo to clear up once and for all whether we are looking at Pablo Jill, Black Oddball, Jocasta Nu, or whatever.

I've looked over all the advance photos at GH and SSG and there still seems to be only that one grainy, half-glimpse of a shot under the 2-packs. Need the crisp, HD full-on money shot!

The best thing I've seen so far is that Mahawnik (sp?), Naboo Pilot, Aurra Sing & Gungan Warrior are all shown on the Vintage figures shelf and Aurra and the Gungan seem to have paint application differences - and the Gungan for sure has a new super-long staff accessory.

Where'd you see those?

Gaaah! We're getting reveals already?!?! I'm not prepared...must...start...drinking immediately. This is the funnest part of the whole deal IMO, the slide show is inevitably a let-down.

Can't wait to see more stuff through the night, hoping for a little TCW love.

Oh Snap,

I gotta see the rest. If the bad guys look this good, resistance is probably futile.

The thing is, unless something changes drastically, it going to take an eternity for those Lost Wave figures to make it onto pegs. There's at least 4-5 waves before that that have literally yet to hit at all in most places. So getting them at SDCC is probably a good bet unless you want to wait four or five more months. The cost per figure breakdown is probably more palatable than most online retailers would be too.

Any hopes I had for Hasbro attempting to redeem themselves at SDCC this year were dashed when I read this over at GH this morning:

"The focus for Star Wars this year appears to be Fighter Pods and not so much the traditional action figure line."


Well, thanks for nothing. Is ANYONE buying those stupid things? I've never even seen a kid look twice at them on the aisle. I've heard plenty of parent comments though, like "They don't do anything" or "They're too small, they'll get lost" etc etc.

Watch the whole Hasbro slide show just be Fighter Pods...the audience would burn that conference room to the ground. Well, hopefully...

Awesome handle!

My favorite Marduk album is "Heaven Shall Burn...When We are Gathered".

So I hear that during Comic-con, you can pay $75 to be chased by zombies at the Petco park across the street at night. It's called The Walking Dead Escape.

Yes, if you complete the obstacle course you get the SDCC exclusive Walking Dead 100 variant comic.

Estimated time waiting in line for this event: 4.6 hours  ::)


I LOVED the Borg-Man!!!

One of the best character actors EVER.

Top 3 roles:

Mermaid Man (Spongebob Squarepants)
Harry Booth (The Black Hole)
Jonathan Corbis (The Devil's Rain)

So much awesomeness last night...very disappointed we are so far off from the Season 3 premiere.

I sort of dazed in and out of the Talking Dead show last night. That Drew Carey idiot practically ruined the whole thing. Always good to hear Bob and Gale Ann dish though.

Some stuff I was able to glean:

Merle is coming back!!!
Life size Michonne statue @ SDCC! Have your picture taken as Pet #2!
Haven't forgotten about the helicopter or the dude and his son from Season One.

Blanking on the rest...

There are two at a local K-Mart near me which just announced it is closing. I went and checked and both still scanned at full price...utter fail.

Went to a comic convention in town today and the guy with the cool SW booth was back again. I noticed he had a Ponds and original Fox carded for sale and out of curiosity I asked how much. I believe he was asking $60 for Ponds and $80 for Fox...unbelievable. He also had a Revan and Malek or whatever but I didn't even want to ask how much those would have been.
