Yeah - what is that green thing?

Please tell me that they didn't feel compelled to give Anakin his own "Pikachu"-type companion.

There's a reason "OCD" is in my signature...

Is the second Evolutions version of the Sandtrooper ever coming? I thought Hasbro had been vague on that. They did say they were going to go back and offer the black pauldron TSC body again, but with the Evolutions Clone set featuring the White/Gray Pauldron Sandtrooper shipping again, I find it hard to believe that Hasbro would also package it individually.

I think clear information about the Saga Legends Line has been handled quite poorly by Hasbro. They should have posted a list with all variations and in what cases/waves figures were shipping to help us out.

I agree that it would have been great to see the repacked ones more sporadic, but at least in my area, the repacked ones are moving fairly well.  Especially the Sith set.

Yeah - the Sith Set is definitely the hardest to find in my area as well.

The Clone Set seems to be the one with the longest shelf life. Oh how things have changed!

They should have put out the waves like this:

Wave 1
Sith evo set 2
Anakin evo
Fett evo

Wave 2
Sith evo set 1
Jedi evo set
Secret Apprentice evo set

Wave 3
Clone evo set w/paint op change
Rebel Pilots evo
Obi-wan evo (it's rumored right?)


That would have spread things out, still accomplished the deferring of costs Hasbro needed and helped prevent massive self warming.

I'm still convinced that Hasbro wanted planogram committment from Target and WalMart and to meet the deadline of the "after-the-holidays" aisle resets they rushed the repacks to the market - regardless of the negative impact on the sub-line.

I feel this way about both the Elite Corps Trooper and Commander Gree - why didn't they just do these figures like the new 2008 versions in the first place?

Now with Gree coming out with SDA (super-duper articulation) - I am sure we'll be buying all of the clones and commanders all over again, only this time with ball-jointed wrists and hips.

I know, I know - I should just say no.

Now if I pick up the four TAC vehicles that were repacks of TSC vehicles, I'll have a complete TAC packaged collection.

Dropping the $80 on those is going to be painful. They keep shipping so it's only a matter of time before I cave on those.


Had to settle with the wait-list on this one.

Not any more, got notification that my wait-list order got switched over to a proper pre-order!

Now if this would just happen with the ANH Obi-Wan, I'll be all set!  ;D

Well - I knew it was going to happen...

Went into TRU this morning to be greeted by all three of the TAC packaged Evolutions re-packs.

OF COURSE I "had" to pick them all up. *sigh*

The Vintage Collection / Re: Animated Clone Wars 3D Figures

I kind of like the idea of having the figures styled in the way the first appeared. If the new Clone Wars line was done in that style I'd be happy with it, as long as they didn't re-release them in the future in the realistic style.

The problem is that is exactly what Hasbro has done (and continues to do if the Wave 3 list appears to be true).

Durge, Ventress, Dooku, Cody, Grievous, Nelvaan Anakin, Yavin Battle Anakin, Red Arc Trooper Commander - all of those characters have a realistic version and an animated version. Not to mention the fact that the Yoda we got in the animated line was translated into a realistic figure WITH the Kybuck just last year and we've continued to get figures in the realistic styled line that we never saw in the animated line: Obi-Wan w/Clone Armor (hopefully getting an improvement soon), Foul Moudamma, Roron Corrob, Voolvif Monn, Arc Heavy Gunner...

Like I said in my post below - having the new line also realistically styled allows Hasbro to re-use toolings that they already have.

I guess I should had to one of those "pros" for realistic styling that we won't be subjected to animated versions in 2008 and then in 2011 realistic versions due to the fact that the Clone Wars animated style figure line crashed and burned.

Sorry if this seems like I'm nit-picking, what about these two:

Luke from Jedi Training on Dagobah Battle Pack - I know it was a re-release of the Saga Bespin Luke figure, but I think the paint on it was different enough


Luke from the "I Am Your Father's Day" 2-pack - it was the Saga Bespin Luke w/a more neutral expression ROTJ Jedi Luke head.

I also don't see modern Early Bird Kit version of Tatooine Luke on your list either.

The mail-away figure is Captain Rex and he's in The Clone Wars cartoon, not the Force Unleashed - so the Stormtrooper "Captain" is going to be offered somewhere else.

To be precise Toy Fair 2008 is February 17 - 20, 2008 and the Jacob Javits Center and in surrounding showroom locations.

Here's the website for it:

Actually that's kind of a good idea. I might try to do $20 each time I get paid, then it doesn't seem like so much of a burden.

I can see the You Tube parody commercials now...

"Collecting Star Wars can be expensive, but for just a dollar a day, you too could realize your dream of purchasing an AT-TE vehicle this October. Don't leave your inner child wanting this October, contribute today to the 'buy yourself an AT-TE (or two) fund' - you'll be glad you did!"

I wonder if this figure will be available through pre-ordering the game and/or

Similar to the way the Battlefront Scout Trooper was released.

That is a definitely possibility. I just checked the pre-order page for the game - and there's nothing about it there, so once the pre-orders are being taken, it's not like you can retro-actively make such an offer.

So my guess is that will be offering the figure. Remember, no exclusives will be shown at Toy Fair, only the mass market items that are open to all buyers. So them saying that we'll have to wait to closer to the release of the game makes sense if it's an exclusive to somewhere like SWS or Target or WalMart or even
