For some reason I just realized today there are two versions of this BP floating around...strictly packaging variants.

One version is called "Republic Troopers" and one is called "Republic Clone Troopers".

No idea which came first, but it seemed noteworthy somehow, mostly as a curiosity.

The Target next to my office restocked with a fresh case of Class I vehicles...I picked up another Scuba Clone Set, although the paint apps don't look much better than the first one I found. No sign of the Dropship, but that wave is bound to hit eventually. I left the Attack Recon Fighter as 2 is enough of those for me.

Yes, Amazon sellers are notorious for shoddy packaging and shipping practices. There is a very little quality control over there and not much recourse if you get damaged goods. (At least not the kind of buyer impunity you find on eBay)

I am seeing nothing new on the TVC front at all around here lately. The last store that got a fresh case sold through the new stuff in one day and now all the carryforward swag is pegwarming again.

That price would be laughable if it weren't so pathetic.

"Let's release $160 toy in the middle of summer with no media should sell fantastically!"

Yeah, good luck with that.

People who wanted the sail barge should be PISSED. Because after this debacle, there is NO WAY they are making that.

I saw a new DK BP last night sitting on the shelves at Target. It has been opened and someone had blatantly ripped out the Catwoman figure and left the rest sitting there. Nice.

As always, good idea not packing all the main characters in the initial wave.  ::)

Yep, congrats to the Kings.

Always nice to see a franchise get its first championship, as long as it's not the Philadelphia Eagles.

Saw Wave 2 CW (Rex, etc.) at a local Target...  only 2nd time I've seen that wave.

I saw some leftovers again from this wave this morning too...Aayla and Obi-Wan, also at Target.

I never know if I'm seeing leftovers from the straight Wave 2 or the mixed wave though. I keep thinking I have missed Scuba Ahsoka but there is really no way to tell.

Nice, I saw one of these over the weekend MISB at Ross for $10 I think.

Saw Hawkeye, Black Widow, and the Skrull Soldier on the pegs today for the first time. K-Mart of all places...

I picked up the new Bloody B&W Rick Grimes/Michonne 2-pack today at the local comic shop. I selected a particularly blood splattered version...another outstanding effort by MacFarlane.  :)

Can't wait for the next series of figures!

What I wish would happen:

BOS over OKC
OKC over BOS
OKC over MIA

What I fear is going to happen:

MIA over OKC

Come on, Celtics!

Found the pegwarming remnants of the Nom/Aayla wave again at Walmart last night...RFT and Logray. It's always those two. :(

re: Malgus

The crazy hype over this thing is starting to reach Wedge proportions. People are psyched about "only" paying $17 for this figure? And just a few months back everyone was complaining about having to pay $10 a figure with the relaunch. Distribution woes really seem to do a number on our perspective.

I just can't justify paying a cent over MSRP for this thing. I'd like one, but not at scalper prices.

Mehs all around.

I saw the local Walmart dropped their clearance price on the Vulture Droid and Dewback to $16. Still had a few of each left...

Vulture Droids and Dewbacks now down to $10 at my local Walmart on the clearance aisle. That's not too bad.

"Ben, you look pissed."

Great actor, will sorely miss him. Newkirk was the bomb.
