Maybe it's AV-6R7?

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Wave 30 (2013 Wave 1)
« on: February 5, 2013, 12:45 AM »
Realistic fans owe the Clone Wars line some thanks. I think the CW got a lot of stuff made that might not have been otherwise: the Fighter Tank, Swamp Speeder, Corporate Alliance Droid tank, Droid Gunship, V-19 Torrent, AT-TE, Turbo Tank...and show only stuff, obviously. They might have made the smaller ROTS vehicles at some point, but doubtful they'd have made the EU V-19 or fighter tank (never appeared in the toon) without a more kid aimed line out there. And the big ticket items? Their releases opened the door for the new AT-AT.

I was slow to warm to the line, the first super-extra (at the time) articulated Clone trooper got me interested. Once they had more articulation for all characters, I was interested. My interest faded with reduced articulation and hard to find releases and no new characters. Honestly the same would happen to some degree with realistic if all those things happened.

Kids are fickle, especially in this age. So many lines aimed at kids die after a year or two. Some may also suffer from a certain channel trying to kill the shows it should be supporting (THundercats, Green Lantern, Young Justice...farther back, Justice League and Masters of the Universe) so they can show Johnny Test and Dreamworks Dragons in 4 hour blocks and stuff that is not cartoons.

What about the rumors of Class 1 and Class 2 ending. Are we are heading back to  no vehicles at mass retail like Power of the Jedi? Guess we will find out.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: What Shock Trooper is this?

Must be a custom. The feet look mold red, not painted, but that could be a parts swap.

Commander Thire had a removable helmet and I thought maybe it was based on him, but that mold was much different (no ball hips, the detail on the right bicep, etc).


 Figures like the Tonnika Sisters, Velken Tezeri, Toryn Farr, or heck at this point, even a figure of Jamie Farr would be very much welcomed...

They made two 3 3/4" figures of Jamie Farr in the 80's M.A.S.H. line. Why would kids want to play M.A.S.H.? I did have one, though.

My local TRU has the 12" Anakin. What a piece of junk!

He'll make point 5 past retail price. He may not look like much, but he's got it where it counts.

Revenge of the Sith / What Shock Trooper is this?

Wasn't sure where to ask this. In this lot the kneeling Shock Trooper without the helmet, looks to use the ROTS AT-TE driver mold...I don't remember the mold being used for Shock Troopers.

If it's a custom, it's a well done one.

I agree about the length, though technically, the arc really was four episodes, they played the first part out of sequence as the season opener, since it was ambiguous enough in its ending to be a stand alone episode.  Remember we see Hondo's camp in ruins...the result of Separatist attack during the younglings arc. (In the rearranged airing order, the attack won't occur for 7 more episodes).

Do they have clearance stickers on them? If so, I'd get one and wait on the rest.  Snags alone would have trade value. Plus, even though most of the last 3 packs hit clearance they've gained in resale value. If you change your mind, odds of getting $13 back are pretty good.

None of those packs left close to me. Just the droids. I checked last thursday and they were $17+ still.    They didn't have clearance stickers on them.

While entertaining, I think it misfired.


1. Bo Katan as Satine's sister....unnecessary and rang false...she was part of a group plotting her sister's death? Estranged relations, indeed.

2. Maul begging for mercy. A. he should know better, as he was Sidious pupil. B. it doesn't fit/borderline character assassination...I guess it does make Pre Vizla twice the man Maul is.

3. Sidious sparing Maul. He insisted Dooku off Ventress, she was too strong in the dark side. Sidious plays by his own rules, though. The Rule of Two is for his own protection. I guess we will find out his plans for Maul.

4. Yes, about the force ability, Sidious used telekinesis a lot. Maul and Opress didn't at all.

5. What was the scene about Palpatine requesting a shuttle? That went no where.  ;)

6. How did Sidious know what was going on? Spies. Sure. Magical force sense that operates at key moments? Uh...

7. Kenobi saying Maul was forced to be evil...a tad of a leap, better applied to Savage Opress, whose origins he was more aware of.

8. Prime Minister ******bag is still alive.


We also got Mas Amedda and Ki Adi Mundi cameos. Hoo-rah.

I'd like to see them bring back

the hologram pack-in figurines but in new hot neon colours.

Spring action accessories.

Force Files

Enviroment battle stands that sort of connect to form nothing especially useful

Collector coins that you have to buy crappy figures to get all of.

Secret weapons!

I ruined my joke, I actually liked secret weapons.

So, will there be three 3 3/4" lines or just two? Will Movie Heroes merge with the black series or go to  its own Vader packaging? Will Mission series replace Movie Heroes?

This would be a good series to release the battle droid from the MTT (not the rack ones, the "pilot" ones they've used in the Class 1 sets). 

The Bullpen / Re: Iron Man 3 Toys

I saw a similar Iron Patriot at Target, which spokes phrases...including "I'm here to back you up, Iron Man"

Wait, I thought he was the villain!

Yeah, they wouldn't bother releasing 33/4" under this "black series" if the figures would be kiddiefied, they'd stick those under Movie Heroes. Collector aimed 3 3/4" is probably safe for now, by "now" I mean the last 6 months of this year.  :P

TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - Season Six?
« on: January 29, 2013, 10:21 PM »
Hmmm, I choose Option E:

They didn't have it on their 2013 schedule because Season Six is actually running from July 2012-December 2012, as per the recent news out of UK Toy Fair. (I assume on Cartoon Network as we have heard nothing to indicate otherwise)

My calendar says it's 2013 already. Though, yeah, I was wondering about that, too.
