They could literally do a whole wave of different Padme costumes.

And they'd sit on store pegs for years.  ;)

They're busy rigging the full results, too. It will be loaded characters they were already going to make within the next year so they can say "see, we listen to the fans!"

These won't be battle packs (which are now 3 figures), they'll be "milk the collectors" packs like Battle of Endor pilots, Republic Commandos and Force Unleashed. I wouldn't be surprised by a $35 to $40 price tag on these sets.

I think the show will end with Ahsoka alive.

I'd say that Kenobi has to kill Maul again...since he was robbed of that, but who knows...Sith on Sith violence could happen.

Carol and Maggie are gonna cause as much trouble as Lori.  The way they write women on this show sometimes.

They were in a rush to get off the highway, too much...if they weren't thinking about gasoline.

Some tidbits on the talk show that airs after it:

-Hershell was originally planned to be killed by an escaped Randal, but they wisely changed their minds.

-Jimmy was to be the thing Dale found in the field, this was before Dale was gonna be killed off I think.

-It was 27 degrees when they filmed the barn night scenes. Zombie Breath had to be removed via CGI

Lack of ball jointed shoulders, no wrists, no ankles seem like more than a little less. To me anyway. The shoulders were the deal breaker.

In addition to the cancelled Wal-Mart DVD 2-packs, TJ Maxx has the fall 2011 CW Battle Packs for $13.

No Kamino sets here. Saw Capture of the Droids and Hunt for Grievous.

So did anyone on that planet survive besides the astro droid?

I'd think Maul would kill them all anyway. I would've sent a fleet...maybe 15 minutes behind Kenobi, so he didn't know.

Dangling plot threads to the show, and this season mostly avoided pursuing them. We had two 4-part episodes that were stand alone. Another Zygerian arc that ate up 3 episodes. 3 more with Mon calamari. The mostly disposable R2 3PO adventures. In the broader storylines, that left us with the season end arc and the one-off Death Watch episode. The only significant deaths of previously seen characters were Tarpals and that 212th clone (Waxer?). Secondary Jedi seemed underused (Krell aside, whom we'd never seen before). Dooku appeared more than ever it felt like.

It wasn't a bad season, though. It's just that some parts of it felt short (Maul's story) and others too long (the underwater war, and arguably the Umbara arc). Plus the odd break up of the Zygerian 3 parter...waiting a month for its resolution.

So, is the new Jar Jar figure in this assortment? Is he going to be released in the Vintage line eventually?

No. Jar Jar is coming later this year on vintage card only. The current Jar Jar is different, less articulated on a Movie Heroes card.

 But "sane" Maul is back.

What's Talzin's stake in this? That Maul will eventually go after Dooku?  Her magic has an engineering degree...nice use of scrapped droids. She might wanna repair some droid for herself, you know, bury all her dead sisters (or cocoon them for zombie hijinks later).

Obi-Wan for his flippancy in the face of evil didn't ask Maul who his master was? Nor did dumb Savage, who's the type to ask straight forward question.

We are still left wondering how bisected Maul became spider-maul.

If they'd sent a task force, they could've blown them up in space. Whatever...the will of the butt. They ran away.

Why on Earth is Hasbro still using those horribly over-sized helmets on the clones?  Good grief.

So everyone can buy a "corrected" version next year or whenever.

I'm probably giving them too much credit there.

Always hotties looking for "bargain" clothes. Like there's always at least one cashier at Target who fills out her khakis nicely.  :)

Seeing the bids on that Ahsoka set (over $40!), I wish I'd gotten one to resell. But I think most people are wise now and/or there'll be dozens listed within a week.

Was it ever established what the difference between this new Vader and the other 832650123856013361 Vader's we've gotten since the original VOTC Vader is? I know the gloves but otherwise, yeah.

Chest with the robes over the armor (A New Hope style), non-removable helmet and the first ball jointed hips on an OT Darth Vader 3 3/4" scale figure.

Worthy upgrades, of all 4 new Vaders this year, it might be the best.   :P
