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.

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

Was in far southwestern VA for a wedding this weekend. The town I was staying in had one Walmart, no Targets and no TRU. I still managed to pick up another Evazan, Kithaba, and a random General Cracken.

Am i wrong in thinking there is a wave of these shipping without Aayla and Nom Anor? Or are those two ALWAYS packed in with Evazan/Kithaba?

I just find it weird I have found the exact same figures from this wave hanging on the pegs two times now.

Amazon seems to ship a lot of stuff that gets damaged, so I would be wary of ordering anything I wanted MOC from them.

FYI, you may have seen/heard that Hasbro put up the Republic Attack Dropship Deluxe Set on their website for order. (http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/new-to-hasbrotoyshop-star-wars-republic-attack-dropship-with-clone-pilot-figure?CD=121&BR=495&ST=NW&PG=1)

BUYERS BEWARE! This is NOT the Attack Dropship, it is a listing for the Scuba Clone set which is clearly pictured. The item # listed is for the scuba set as well. Hasbro simply screwed the pooch and failed to catch their error.

Hope no one gets sucked in by the old bait and switch~

Wow, BBTS just put up pre-orders for Waves 2 and 3 today! Ouch!

Is this Wave 1 stuff going to linger at retail? Are they going to keep re-shipping or once it's gone is that it?

Picked up 2 Red Ninjas and 2 CC's after the local Target reset this morning. First time I have seen either of those on the pegs.

If only they kept Tatum and killed off that Wayans doosh instead. I'd probably go see the movie ten times.

As noted on our front page, it's for "All Star Wars Toys", not just basic figures.

That is not how it is being advertised here with the shelf signage, it indicates only figures, but good to know.

So many thoughts to share...

First, is the the first time in the history of the animated line we have had ONE new figure in a whole wave? I am thinking yes. That is REALLY sad.

Hasbro needs some remedial arithmetic. With Fox, that comes to 18 (EIGHTEEN) figures for 2012. 18 does not equal 19. Why did we keep getting pounded over the head with the 19 single carded figures mantra? And where is the single carded Cyborg Maul that has been rumored for so long? Was this just total BS? Does that mean Krell will be some kind of carded convention exclusive?

Thank GOD they are re-packing Anakin and Yoda, because those figures are just IMPOSSIBLE to find on the pegs right now.  ::)

Two-per case is great for Obi, Rex, and Fox, but why not the SBD and Wolffe too? Do they really think those figures are LESS in demand than Yoda or Anakin?

Estimated to arrive date is July 2012. Does this really mean they are not going to do any more new figures from July to January? I flat out REFUSE to believe that. They must be starting over again come the Fall. Or canceling the line outright. No way they can keep it on life support for six months, especially during the holiday season.

I find it curious that leaked imaged of Maul and the "nightsister" have already leaked but nary a whiff of Phase II Fox images? They are doing a helluva job keeping that under wraps. Not sure why, but they are.
