Thanks, that is what I thought. I am hoping that I find this under he tree this year, but if what I am seeing on Spike was the standard I was going to make sure we did not waste the money. One thing is for sure, when these are on tv I can't stop myself from watching them.

Has anyone who owns the new blurays seen the HD broadcasts on Spike this weekend. I don't think they are the new versions, but wanted to check. If this is all the better they came out, it is not worth the cash for he upgrade.

My first thought on the commando droids was, here comes another deluxe pack with no cost to Hasbro that no one will buy. My "No Prize" answer is that production is up at the facility where they are manufactured, and after a careful cost to productivity analysis they were deemed a good choice for general battle. This could also open up the opportunity for a new droid factory assault (wherever they are being made) arc to explain why we don't see any commandos in ROTS. Palpatine would want to cripple the droid  production right at the end of the war. (also evidenced in their disappearance from episodes 4-6).

The sniper destroyers were cool, but how hard would it be to slap a shield generator on there?

I know I won't be buying any "new sidecars" but they worked well in the episode.

I think we got to see a little dark side Obi when he crushed the droids. After taking a beating from Wolverine's cousin for most of the episode, I could imagine he was ready to force choke everyone else in the tower.

The only thought I had on the slaves issue was they had little cost, capture insert hidden explosive and sell. That would keep the overall cost down and allow for a small business owner like Watto to own one or two instead of a droid.

The 54 dollar price tag, no tax, and free shipping tipped the scales and convinced me to ring this up through EE for my son's (and mine too) big ticket item for the holidays. I like the playset feature, I hope the ship itself holds together well.

Since they are not following a ordered timeline in the series it is possible for them to add in an arc of obi an his clones taking the capital. I would be all in on that. Now, will Krell be a figure or not? He looks costly to manufacture, unlike Piel who was much cheeper. (both one arc and dead). I hope that's not how they decide. I would love to have that figure.

Piell found! I thought I hit the mother load when there were two of him on the rack at TRU. Alas, nothing else from the wave was there. At least I finally have proof this wave exists.

I believe the III title is in reference to the Star Wars Lego video game series.

Anakin was called back at Palpatines request. I can't see Anakin killing a Jedi, even so save two of his troopers. It is much more likely that the clones stand aside while seppies gun down Krell. As far as Order 66, I think it comes down to an order from Palatine (off screen) that Anakin is on the right side and is no longer a Jedi.
    I can't wait to see how this all sorts out Friday.

So will Rex leave the service to protect/aid fives and Jesse from being executed? This could be a great opportunity to work that in to the overall story, although it is hard to believe with all the promotional cash spent on Rex that they would write him out before the last season. Although if he became a leader of clone deserters that would be interesting. They already know a small farm that would take in a few clone brothers. I'll be shocked if Krell is not killed by next week, but who is going with him?
   Part of what makes this arc so great is we don't know the fate of most of the characters...that has been missing in star wars since rotj.

I think that discount pushed enough people over the edge to buy the whole wave filler and all at HTS. It is still out of stock. I am hoping this, and the Y wing mini bomber, will be like the Jesse deluxe pack, and months later (and after significant panic on my behalf) will clog the shelves for a while. I cannot believe they would be this off on their math with Chewie in the wave. those figures are out there somewhere. I want them, but I will not overpay for them.

I think they will kill fives by the end of the arc, which has been awesome by he way, not that they have not killed enough clones in these episodes, but I can see the emotional effect of killing of a character that has become dear to many of us will show the sacrifices that the clones are making for the republic. I find myself rooting for fives because he is the last survivor from the Rookies episode. That episode sold me on the show, this arc helps extend that. I hope Filoni is getting the feedback that fans love these episodes, and if Hasbro is smart they will be burning the lamp oil well into the night on cranking out the dozens of toys that could all be big sellers from this episode. I still can't by enough figures from Landing at Point rain. I am hoping these are made as well.

Found the new soft goods Rex and the ops trooper today. Now I need to find the chewbacca wave. I also spotted the Shuttle at TRU for 69 bucks. I wanted to pull the trigger, but I think black Friday many bring an even lower price somewhere.

Finally found some new stuff today. Seripas, ARF boarder, Tinn, shirtless savage. I can't believe that I still have not seen the new Rex. Anyway, it is great to see some new product! I am not sure who was more exciting to find, savage or seripas.

Yes, it is in the regular cut of the episode as was originally intended. The blu-ray archives also have several mock up deleted scenes that are worth watching. The packaging is a step down, but if you liked what you found with season 2 this is a great pick- up.
