That Darth Talon figure looks amazing. I can't wait to add that to my collection. I have Sith Lords on my desk at work so I will definitely be buying an extra of that set so I can add her to my desk.

Picked up the v2 Pit Droids in the White w/Gray Stripe variety. Need one more of those and two more each of the other two colors in the v2 variety and I can consider the pit droids "done".

Have there been any reports of the TSC Body Sandtrooper w/Black Pauldron and clean paint-op showing up in these new waves that are shipping with the Captain Rex offer on the bubble?

Hey Jeff - any word on the clone that will come with the AT-TE? Will it be a Clone Wars version of the AT-TE Gunner or just a standard Clone?

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: 2008 Clone Wars Preview Figure?
« on: February 16, 2008, 08:27 PM »
Nice! I'm torn now on getting this sub line....But I'm edging ever closer to getting them. But I don't want to and if I do, I'll be sorely tempted to army build. Something I've all but sworn off except the new Kashyyyk clone. It's already going to be an expensive year, especially regarding all of the great vehicles coming out this year!

I defintely feel your pain. I'm not entirely keen on the Clone Wars animated line, but I'm not going to completely ignore an entire sub-line which is going to contain some great vehicles (V-19, Homing Spider Droid and the AT-TE) - so I think I will do what I did with the other animated series, two of each, one to open and one to keep MOC. I will not army build ANY of these clones. I will send away for probably five or six Captain Rex figures, but only because I have a complete spare set of TAC figure packaging inserts that I can pull UPCs from, so I figure I might as well put them to good use. Perhaps I'll feel differently when I see them in person, but right now, based on the photos, since the clones don't "fit" in with all of the other mountains of clones that I have, I will consider this a "novelty" 3.75" sub-line that does not consist of any army-builders worth adding to my current armies.

Yes, C-3PX is from the Droids Comic book series that was put out by Dark Horse.

This vehicle looks sweet! I'm so happy that this design is finally coming to the toy line!

Neither am I - I wouldn't be surprised to see it for at least another year as well - perhaps 2010 when it's the 30th anniversary of ESB.

Next year will be the 10th anniversary of TPM - I could see them trotting out the Queen's Starship as an exclusive to someone next year - which wouldn't be a bad thing since it really is a great toy.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Speederbike Recon Set/Battlepack?
« on: February 16, 2008, 03:23 PM »
Well, if they're sticking two white colored OT speederbikes in a pack with a pair of kitbashed Snow/Scout troopers - why wouldn't they put a pair of BARC Speeders with a pair of kit-bashed PT clones. Makes sense to me.

When you think about the fact that Battlepacks can be had for $20 and in instances like these you get two figures AND two vehicles, there is an instant play-pattern that appeals to kids and parents who buy for kids PLUS there is an appeal to an army builder who may want to have a squad of four or six of these and they can do that very easily by picking up multiple battlepacks. So it's a win-win formula for Hasbro IMHO.

The Legacy Collection / Re: Droid Factory Build A Figure

The fact that we're getting an R7 droid as part of the droid factory ROCKS. I've always wanted to see them make figures of the new model EU astromech droids. The B-A-F method helps this out immensely.

Also, as was predicted, it looks like you'll be able to mix-and-match parts should you want to create unique droids.

So I wonder how the Protocol droids will break down - will it take five or six figures to make one protocol droid?

Well, I guess this settles it - Hasbro really DOESN'T want a lot of our money.

If they had done realistic style I would have army built all of the clones and the droids - especially the droids.

Now, they will be lucky if I pick up two of each figure (one to open, one to keep MOC).

At least it looks like the vehicles will remain compatible with the regularline. The Homing Spider Droid looks wicked.

I think most of the action features will turn out to be in the accessories. Didn't we get a spy report that a lot of the figures were super-articulated to some degree?

I could see them re-using the Quick Draw clone body from ROTS - that figure had a solid action feature that didn't affect the overall articulation of the figure. It didn't have any torso articulation, but that's a minor trade-off. Same thing goes with the lightsaber slashing action (which is really the same mechanism).

I'm okay with things staying on that level. It's when you get to "Spin Kick Obi-Wan" or "Flying Through the Air Yoda" that it gets ridiculous 'cause the features NEVER work.

Well of the Souls / Re: Hasbro Indy Playsets?
« on: February 16, 2008, 02:32 AM »
Well - a picture of the playset is up on the Hasbro website and it is indeed a re-hash of the Mustafar playset from ROTS.

Picked up the AT-AP, Grievous Starfighter & Blue Obi-Wan ROTS Jedi Starfighter.

I also picked up a single Tri-Droid and Kashyyyk Trooper that I found hidden at my local WalMart.

This is pleasant news. I guess the AT-TE will hit on day one with all of the rest of the Clone Wars product.

So it's looking like July will be a VERY expensive month indeed.
