Which Target? I was geared up to go out for a hunt this morning after a few hard weeks, but ended up getting sucked into dealing with the stupid Q&A instead, which was not as good a payoff.

Thanks Bikescout.

I also saw Figgy B's post, and responded to it that I missed it because it was my birthday or I had a wisdom tooth taken out or my grandma was in the hospital (not sure when it was posted, but the excuse was one of those 3 recent events in my life).

not tired, just the expression i wanted since i was mocked. It's not the most exciting scout, but it is a variation that i need to get nonetheless.

Any sign of the new comic packs yet??
Oh man don't be so sensitive. You weren't being mocked. I think it looks bad. There's no reason why Hasbro should had done this.


On a happeir note, can some one pic me up a Rom Sleg? Crunchy maybe?

The Dodgers are just jealous because we (The San Diego Padres) have the Ecksteins (David at 2nd base, Ashley on The Clone Wars as Ahsoka Tano).

Darn L.A. - trying to have everything and the penant, too? Well, you might make it to the World Series, but you can't keep the Ecksteins!

Nice try though.

BTW: went to a LA Angels game and they show Star Wars clips on their big screen, too. R2-D2 projects "the infamous monkey." :rolleyes:

Well sorry LA: San Diego is the team to play for if you're a Jedi Knight!

The Dodger game. You know the game that can put many to sleep. :sleeping:

Doesn't put me to sleep, but instead puts me in a state of rage that THIS is still probably the team that will represent the NL West instead of my Padres.

Though Colorado has been playing very impressively and you never know what could happen as the season winds down. I haven't checked the standings for a few days - only the Padres' daily scores.

But I'll be going BOTH nights the Dodgers are in town here on the 29, 30th to see the Padres CRUSH them!!! :upset::evil::twisted::mad:

Star Wars fans are welcome to join me - just let me know really, really soon, as I'll be buying the tickets. Just remember, the Force is with San Diego. We have the Ecksteins! (you guys let him leave Anaheim - don't blame us for giving him a home).

Well, what I meant was that in Mexico we grow up watching Soccer as the main sport and the majority of Mexicans prefer it over any sport, so it's not fair of me to judge baseball as a boring game. There is a baseball league in Mexico, though.
Still, Mexican-Americans will prefer baseball 1,000 times over Soccer. But thanks for the info, Tycho.:) I didn't know there were so many Mexicans playing with the Padres. I thought they were all Dominican or Puerto Rican.

Baseball is just too darned slow to watch sitting at the stadium, especially when you can stay home and watch it on TV where you can see the action clearly and change channels when it gets boring (read: 2nd inning).

Baseball is 10 times better watched live at the stadium versus football.

I had 50 yardline (mid-level) seats for the Chargers' pre-season game against Seattle. AT THE GAME, I couldn't tell what happened in a pile-up until the leading referee announced it. With football on TV, every camera angle is re-shown for any key down and I can make up my mind for myself about "what just happened."

In most plays in baseball - I can see it quite clearly at a live game. There are some plays, pitches, tags etc. that are best decided (by fans) with instant-replay.

Baseball is not boring. With 2 outs in the top of the 9th inning, the Padres down 6-11, they came back and struck for 4 runs (with 2 men out, mind you) and nearly tied it up with the Rockies, finally losing 10-11, but not for a lack of effort on their part. And the whole game was played in a downpour of rain!

I knew u would see the light TW. I have yet to find that scout.

Hit up Porter ranch TRU and wally. Nothing good at TRU save for the one new Y-wing. Box dinged on the corner. As far as SW, Wally had the 3 new Evol. packs. Lots of Rebel & Imp. pilots, but only one Commando pack with a ripped box. TFwise they had 2 LC Jetfires. This was at 3:30ish. I was excited since it was my first time seein him & he was only $35, but passed for now -owe 2 friends some $ (one for SW in Concert). JF will probably get some kind of update or repaint anyway like H always does -then if i can find him at a good price again I'll get him.

Still looking for the B.A.D. Biker scout and TPM padawan Obi-wan.

My friend says he will have 160 clones plus 200 older figures - many troopers - available.

Of course you don't know what happened in a pile-up, but the rest of the game you know as much as anybody (if they have to get the chains, nobody knows), you can even see flags thrown before the home audience.

Then again, I'm a basketball guy.

I did for 14 years (and going) and it's been very rewarding.

My Little Brother is now in his 20's and he asked me to be his best man at his wedding. While we collected Star Wars together, I have continued, and I'm sure if he and his wife have any sons in their future, I can leave them my collection.

Other things I have I want to see go to forum members here. But since my kidney transplant looks to be successful, I'll probably be around about the same amount of time as most of the rest of you.

I also got the new Clone Wars battlepack from them - with that alien bounty hunter and Anakin and Ahsoka in Tatooine cloaks. Also included IG-86 (fortunately I never bought even ONE of those pegwarmers). But the alien is not Cad Bane, but a previously never-carded one (think he might be a Saurin) and lot of people would like another regular version of Ahsoka (though she's due to be re-released).

Thing is I have 5 gunships, so I'd need 10 of those stupid packs now that there is only 1 cannon in each. Hmmm. Maybe. I could use only 1 in each ship since they're for display and you wouldn't necessarily see the "away side" of the gunship in my display.

I could cheat it. Those battle packs are like up to $24 or more now, huh?

I'll buy on site and if I don't decide to keep them, I'll ask around here before I return them.

I picked up the ROTJ wave today and have heard a lot of hate for Jedi Luke. But now that I have him in hand, I don't understand where the complaints are coming from. Aces from me. Love him.

I don't like the Jedi Luke at all (got him from HTS) and find the chest to be horrible misproportioned.

Fri evening, LF TRU had at least 2 Crumb bombers. 70 a piece as normal. I also spotted a MM TDK Gotham City thug. Pm for location. Never ever seen him in the wild before -shoulda stashed, sorry.

This AM at Sh. Oaks Target -- leftovers of TPM wave; Clegg, Sidious w/chair, and Obi-wan. (I got the other TPM Obi). They also had an AOTC Obi. Ton of Han & Luke in Storm armor. They may be still there, but saw the Vong, Krayt and Lumiya comic packs for the first time there as well (1 of each). Good luck -in hindsight, i maybe shoulda stashed those too -sorry

Found the complete wave of ROTJ at my local KMart this morning. Bought 4 of the figures (Nikto, Giran, Leia, and Panno) because I could not justify the $9.00 price tag for all 8. Also hit a couple of Targets and found remnants of the same wave (Nien and Luke). Also if anyone still needs the TPM wave, I found them (including Rum Sleg) at several Kohl's stores. The only problem is that they are over $10.00 each. Ouch!! Luckily I already found this wave and don't need any more of these figures.

Found all 6 of the Target exclusive Geonosian 2-packs in Valencia but the $12.99 price tag made them an easy pass. Even the two new Jedi figures were not exciting enough for me to buy just those two sets. I guess it's better than the $17.00 Walmart was charging for their 2-packs. I just think the price is still too steep considering that most of these figures are reissues. I'm sure these will be on clearance in a few weeks.

Tycho
10-15-2009, 10:17 PM
Yeah, but if you want them: buy them. You still have a 90 day return priviledge.

If they go on clearance, buy them again and return with the full-price receipt.

This is nothing more than getting your price garauntee - however I think that's officially honored for only 30 days - and the sets have to be in stock, I believe - or in an ad.

BTW - if they never go on clearance, you can still return them for 90 days.

Picked up the CW Y-wing from W.Hollywood Target, then went back a few days later and bought the other one because the first one had a crack. Tried to get Hasbro customer service to replace, they said couldn't guarantee same item, then they said they'd refund me, now they're saying they won't refund the $6.34 in sales tax I paid. I'm pretty close to saying F that and taking it back to Target, so much for trying to do the right thing.

Same store also had Major Panno, Giran, Nikto, Malasuki, Ep 2 Anakin, Ahsoka space suit, Denal, and the Turbo Tank Gunners. I bought the Panno. Weird figure, not bad but very odd, the angle of the torso articulation is steep, and the goggles don't fit the head right, they're dinky on his face. And what's with the wacky shotgun? The encoder fits in the cloak though.

I found all the ROTJ figs on monday. I had to drive out to Palm Springs. About an hour out of LA, I stopped at some random Target off the 10 Freeway and they had pretty much the entire wave. I only wanted four of the figures...

DS 2 Luke
Slave Leia
Major Panno
Giran.

All four are awesome and the BAD pieces rule!

Hit a few Walmarts in Palm Springs, but no sign of the Dewback as of yet. I know, I know, not due out for a couple weeks, but I figured it was worth checking out as I was feeling lucky and it was my birthday... But no such luck, not just yet.

PS -- Thanks Jeditricks for the tip on the encoder. My goggles actually do fit okay, it took some doing, but they do stay on all right. I do agree though that they are a bit snug or tiny on his face...

Santa Clarita is really lagging in terms of new product hitting the shelves. The Valencia Target is still loaded with Legends figs and nothing new for the last three or four weeks.

Weird how they released the cart before the horse... er, I mean, scanning box. ;)



Ugh. Had a brutally long day (twelve hours) on set and then hit Porter Ranch and Santa Clarita Walmarts. No Dewbacks. Meanwhile those blasted AT-ST or whatever they are called were all over the place. Maddening. I mean, it looks cool and all but I have no attachment to the original design and so I have zero interest. But why is this stupid exclusive everywhere and the one I want is totally MIA?

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.Because the Dewback has a Nov 11th street date, probably.

A buddy of mine found and bought MP Skywarp today at Crenshaw WM. The funny thing is that I was there around 3:45 and they hadn't put them out yet, but he sent me a pic of his in hand, they had put them out around 3 hours later.

Speaking of Crenshaw WM, they do indeed have the new AT-ST, a whole endcap of them, it's oddly placed in the back behind the baby toys. I bought one, it's an awesome vehicle, worth the $45.

Found warp today at Porter Ranch wm. Think i grabbed the first one, this was 10:30 to 11:30ish this morning. They had plenty. They also had a lot of AT-STs and I saw at least one Dewback, but a friend of mine called & said he was grabbing it. Sorry i'm foggy on those. I was so excited to find Warp that i didn't examine the At-st & dewback closer. Anyway, the apb is over for now. Thanx TW, Snags, Crunchy, bran & anyone else i pm'ed. As I said before this guy had a high potential to be sold out immediately with low #ed stocks and with me seeing MP starscream last year only once & never again. Didn't want to chance it with my grail -lol.
Opened him for my friend & transformed him already. Fantastic! A high recommend!!!

Santa Clarita stores were stocked full of new figures today!

Valencia WM had two cases of ANH figures on the pegs. Picked up the Jawa, Ki-Adi, and Deviss to complete this wave. They also had 12 Dewbacks out on the shelves, but passed on it (for now).

Super WM also had most of the ANH wave on the pegs and no Dewbacks.

Kmart had full ROTJ wave on the pegs but already collected these. Did find CW Padme and Matchstick, but hated paying $9.00 each for them.

The good news was that the Valencia Target finally put new figures on the pegs after a two month dry spell. The bad news was that it was the Phantom Menace wave.

All caught up now. Bring on the ROTS wave.

Got my Terminator Salvation giant Harvester figure from ordering it off a seller on Amazon (I think). It's very cool. This thing fights the 3 3/4" figures.

It's got 4 arms and very detailed on its upper body. Electronic search lights and a missile launcher.

The legs are really sturdy but seem to need more detail. But it was worth it.

BTW, I paid less than $40 for the thing. You can get some deals on this if you're still interested in any Terminator (We Can't Salvage This Franchise) products.

Just saw an advanced copy of Kohl's Black Friday ad and they are going to sell ALL action figures for 33% off the regular price. This might help some of you who are still looking for the Phantom Menace wave of figures as there have been many reports that they are showing up at Kohl's but the price is deterring collectors from buying them there. This sale may help some of you if you are brave enough to fight the crowds.

Not collecting anything- just holding on to a few choice items and liquidating the rest. I'm pretty much over the prequels, so that's all going as fast as I can unload it. Hoping not to have to donate anything to Toys for Tots this year, as Rebelscum seems to be a hot place to sell again (finally).

I've finally admitted that paying for storage instead of investing in my house or 401k is stupid. That said, I'm hoping ACME does a Black Friday sale so I can finish my Eric Tan Indy poster trilogy, and I'm down for the golden idol replica next year.

Get the Hot Toys John Connor.

It looks great but it's too expensive.

A 12" figure should be $20. That being said, I pay about $100 for SideShow Star Wars now (and more for certain SideShow Star Wars armor).

However, a Terminator skeleton is so detailed that I could justify paying $150 for it, I'd guess.

John (as good as the Christian Bale likeness looks) is not worth it.

And the movie greatly disappointed me, though I think I like it more in retrospect. It just did not fare well against Star Trek and Wolverine which came out at the time - and then Transformers 2.

With my extreme love for the Terminator franchise (and I'm a big fan), the movie was a black mark on my summer. I don't see a need to commemorate that by buying an over-priced John Connor.

I would jump at the chance to pick him up for $70 or so. Marcus in that range as well. Then I'd buy a T-600 or T-800 for $150 or something to go with them (or spend $300 to get both machine Terminators).

I'd also love great sculpts from T1 and T2 at affordable prices for the human figures (Arnold, Sarah, and Kyle, T-1000, and kid-John)

Chaddymac
11-11-2009, 09:07 PM
My head is still spinning from the fact that you felt like T4 didn't at least fit in the incredibly broad range of quality described in your grouping of Star Trek, Wolverine, and TF2.

It's like saying, "I'm not sure how I feel about pie. I like cake, cookies, and getting punched in the face, but pie? I dunno..."

Tycho
11-11-2009, 09:36 PM
LOL Chaddymac.

There were 5 major sci-fi style summer movies that I'd looked forward to.

I'd rank them as such:

1) Star Trek
2) Wolverine
3) Transformers: ROTF
4) GI Joe (though it was very close to TF for a good story w. Duke / Baroness)
5) Terminator Salvation

I wanted the movie to be more about John Conner and introspective of his role in the war.

Terrminator 1 was about Sarah and Kyle
Terminator 2 was about John and Uncle Bob, somewhat about Sarah
Terminator 3 was about Kate and the T-800, somewhat about John
Terminator 4 was about Marcus and Blair? It only focused somewhat on John, somewhat on Kyle

The story should have stayed around the franchise's main characters and focused on John and Kyle. A character like Marcus could have been in there as a McGuffin or whatever you call a plot device, but he became the main star and he had nothing to do with the passion invested in characters with prior history with the franchise.

In retrospect, I like Terminator Salvation for what it is, but it is NOT what I wanted.

Crumb Bomber at $50 is tempting me, I know I shouldn't, but I like the redesign. Anyone have one to claim it's good or bad yet?

JT, I got one at the original price and like it, but I am pretty biased in favor of the gunships anyways.

The new forward hold doors are pretty neat. They added a new piece to that area for the door pegs to plug into instead of having to retool the whole body. The troop bay doors might look big, but with the way they swing out, it's not as noticeable as it is in photos around the web. The slots on the doors are also "closed" with paint accents/trim to highlight them.

The paint job over all is very crisp and clean and very different from the original release. They stayed in the lines. There is not weathering to speak of, but unlike the V-19, it's actually a good look. (IMO)

The neatest thing (besides what I think is REALLY good paint on the nose art -- very detailed) is the retooled missile pods. The back section swings/pivots out to reveal a rotating missile launcher that holds 4 missiles each (your just turn the back end like a knob) and each wing holds 4 extra missiles for those launchers instead of those decorative static missiles. And the long missiles still fire as well.

If you bought and liked the WM Exclusive Lucky Lekku version, then you'll like this version. And for a couple more days, it's the same price but a different (better) version.

But like I said, I am pretty skewed in favor of gunships. If you're not a fan of the gunships, then you could probably live the rest of your life without feeling like you're missing out. But fortunately it's a TRU exclusive and you have like what 9-12 months to decide?

BTW: I don't live in LA (or southern CA), but I subscribe to this thread to get an indicator of what the West Coast collectors are finding. I hope that doesn't bother anybody too much.

I'm somewhat spoiled because of the no sales tax situation in Oregon and the state has a deal with Washington so that folks can go there and not have to pay sales tax.

I just bought a Tonka Toys (Hasbro) tow truck vehicle that can hold 3 3/4" action figures.

I'm going to put Terminator Salvation's Marcus Wright figure in there being chased by my Moto-Terminators, a Hunter-Killer, and The Harvester!

I wished I had a Kyle Reese figure to join him, but I may wind up customizing one. I could even use the Checkov head from the Star Trek line on some sort of military line 3 3/4" figure.

NOTE: I am a fan of the Terminator franchise, but this is hardly my favorite movie from that series (Try T2!). T:S just has a lot of cool "toyetic" stuff in it because it's part of the Future War.

The Tonka tow truck will require some custom paint work and "firing" to make it look like it survived a nuclear holocaust though. Will that negate it's "Warranty for Life?"

Anyway, I'm now looking for a nuclear warhead to set off in my toy collection. Let me know if you have one and what you'd want in trade.

I bought Sulu and got Chekov free. I'm going to use the Chekov head on an appropriate 3 3/4" body to make Kyle Reese to ride with Marcus in my towtruck.

I looked at all the 3 3/4" figures that TRU was carrying and I didn't find a body I liked for Kyle, so the search will continue.

I want to see the Logan figures again from Wolverine, but TRU was out of them.

I also bought a "Battle Machines" Mustang from TRU. This car ($14.99 I think) is a replica black 2006 Mustang that can hold 3 3/4" figures pretty easily I imagine (it's larger than the similar Transformers Alternators Mustang - Wheeljack) but it has its windows sealed with "bullet-proofing steel," giving it a rather cool look. I think it will work nicely for a burned-out vehicle the Resistance might have used for the bridge scene with that towtruck I bought.

I will continue to look for other vehicles that might be useful in that scale. I think a semi-truck and one more car of some sort (or pick-up truck) will do. Oh - I also plan to get that GI Joe Cobra SUV and will cover or remove the Cobra symbols and perhaps either remove the weaponry or color it less "toyetic" and more burned-out background vehicle for the scene as well.

Still sucks that for a 3 3/4" scene there will be no Terminator figures (of robots themselves - though Skynet didn't need them quite then) and just Marcus and Kyle will be in the scene (when I customize Kyle).

I wonder if Playmates will atempt new figures (ever? and for Terminator 5? In this scale?) I hope so.

Rumors before - posted in this thread - suggest that Playmates was going to do Terminator 1 & 2 figures for this line as well. I'd love 'em all plus Sarah Connor Chronicles - however - Future Wars is the most toyetic.

3.75" figures are 1:18 scale. If figures can fit in the car, that's 1:18, a popular die-cast scale. The next one down is 1:24th, which is too small to get a 3.75" figure into, the Alternators and Human Alliance Transformers figures are 1:24th scale.

According to the manufacturer's website, they are making Battle Machines in 1:64, 1:32, and 1:24th scale, so I don't think your 3.75" figures will actually fit in the Mustang you bought. Also, unfortunately, the Mustang is the only one currently in the 1:24 line, they have it across 8 decos. What bums me out about that is that all the other Battle Machine designs in the line have weapons EXCEPT the Mustang.

Tycho
11-27-2009, 06:31 PM
Chekov seems like he would fit in the Mustang, however they have side-guards inside the vehicle as part of its deco that make it difficult to position him right. I also don't think there's enough floor space under the dash to fit his legs with his butt in the seat. BTW, the Mustang is a bit larger than Alternators Wheeljack.

However, Chekov fits in the towtruck just fine. I think the Tonka truck is a little larger than it should be to go with the Mustang, but as I would gather Playmates is never going to continue this Terminator line, except perhaps for Terminator 5 (tenatively called: Terminator The Box Office Demise), I'm best off doing what I'm doing. And I'll get that GI Joe Cobra SUV with my Target coupon for $5 off SW, Trans, or GI Joe toys since I don't think there's any SW or TF stuff that I need right now (Maybe I should pick up more Super BDs, BDs, or Kit Fisto, another Ventress - whatever - but I'm not sure what I'll be using and what I have right now. I need to sort my CW stuff - and I'd sworn I'd never start collecting this line! Grrrrrrrr!)

Anyway Playmates was going to have 2 more vehicles in their Terminator Salvation line: a towtruck (ridden in by Marcus and Kyle) and a helicopter (several were seen being piloted by John $*#!~%! Connor)

I got my first AT-TE at TRU today! I used a $5 TRU rewards coupon plus a clone cash coupon to decrease the 49.99 price by $10.

also bought a Scanning Crew at Valencia WM.

Chekov seems like he would fit in the Mustang, however they have side-guards inside the vehicle as part of its deco that make it difficult to position him right. I also don't think there's enough floor space under the dash to fit his legs with his butt in the seat. BTW, the Mustang is a bit larger than Alternators Wheeljack.I saw a few of these at TRU today, It's actually about 1:22nd scale rather than 1:24th, I'd say, but it's still too small to really fit a 1:18th scale figure. You might be able to cram him in though, it's not like it has to be to true scale, but I would suspect that unless they tampered heavily with the interior, it'd look like Dino on the Flintstones just before he busted through the roof.

Only TLC figures I saw were Luke Jedi, Nien B-wing, and Malakili at Target Burbank, IIRC.

This was a horrible black friday, maybe even worse than last year.

Culver City Target had the Rishi Moon Outpost Attack and Geonosis Assault battle packs, so I bought them and used a $5 coupon in the process.

Rishi Moon is pretty good, I would have liked to have seen a shiny actually be SHINY, but otherwise he's pretty decent. Didn't know they had changed the helmet design from the earliest figure, that was a nice surprise, this one's a little more accurate to the show. The commando droids aren't as subtly painted as the single, but decent none the less. The commander's vibro-sword is nifty and I appreciate the removable electro effect. Plus, removable helmet!

Geonosis Assault is ok but not as exciting as I had hoped. The removable helmet is a little awkward in the "face", this clone body is still bulky, and they weren't pilots in the pods. Never the less, the end result is still keen enough, but I don't know if I'll bother getting 2, I never look at the other side of my gunship.

Just wanted to pass this bit of info alog about the BAD waves. I have noticed that at both the Valencia Target and WalMart that the droid part has been ripped out of the packaging. Make sure that if you buy any of the newer waves to check the back to make sure the droid part is still intact. I've noticed the missing parts in both the ROTJ and ANH waves. I noticed it on both the cantina figures from ANH at WalMart today and a Nikto figure the other day at Target. This may just be isolated to the Valencia area but it may be happening in other areas so double check to ensure you don't get ripped off.

I just got the Scanning Crew from Valencia WM yesterday and fortunately, the droid piece was still in there. However, since I go to the stores up there from time to time, I appreciate the warning.

I got Leesub and concept Ki-Adi today so I've finished that wave's BAD.

Thanks Bikerscout. I'll take a look.

The Cobra black SUV is an awesome vehicle for this sort of use as it's armed, armored, and you can bullet-proof the windows.

I stashed a Clone Wars Luminara Unduli at West Hollywood Target. PM for location.

Said location also has the 2 new exclusive battle packs, the TIE Fighter, and... um... I dunno, something else probably.

Oh, I saw that large red-window TIE Fighter at Target yesterday. I could have bought a fleet of them. I think they were $39 each.

But "back in the day when I was a young man" they used to be $20.

Back then I bought 6 or more of them. I'm not sure how many TIEs I have actually, but it should be 6 now that I think about it. Then I got 3 TIE Intercepters, so my Imperial Fleet (not counting 2 bombers and 2 Vader TIEs) amounts to 9 ships. (Hmmm. I just thought it was 11 the other day. I don't know).

I also have a kitchen sink and two sinks, one each, in each bathroom. Then I have 2 sofas in my living room. Oh, and do you know I have toilets in my bathrooms?

I'm selling my loose and carded "Cars" die-cast collection. I have just about every car released in the first year or more- all in great condition. I'd like to sell these off in one big lot, or a few small ones, but not one-offs.

Thanks. I'm sure I'll find her again sooner or later.

Now that I have an AT-TE, my Seps army is looking rather pitiful and so I'll probably want to get an Octuparra and/or Hailfire droid just so the AT-TE has something to shoot at.

JediTricks
12-02-2009, 05:23 AM
I got the AT-TE because I had been buying more CIS ground vehicles than Republic and it had gotten silly.

Republic ground forces:


AT-RT (temporarily lost, no less, and I can't imagine where I put it)
TX-130
AT-AP

CIS ground forces:


Hailfire Droid
Homing Spider
Corporate Alliance Tank Droid
Crab Droid
AAT
Octuptarra Droid (coming in the mail for xmas)
walking Vulture Droid
Grievous' Wheelbike
Tri-Droid (let's face it, it's big enough to menace the AT-RT and TX-130)

Without the AT-TE, it's a total slaughter, so I had to bring in reinforcements at $50. :p

For my collection, the big problem is the CIS is horribly outnumbered in the sky...

Republic sky forces:


Ep 2 Jedi Starfighter
CW Jedi Starfighter
Anakin's modified Jedi Starfighter
Ep 3 Jedi Starfighter
V-wing
V-19 Torrent
CW Y-wing
ARC-170
Republic Gunship

CIS sky forces:


Vulture Droid
Magnaguard Starfighter
Geonosian Droopyfighter
Droid Tri-Fighter
Grievous' Starfighter

They need to get more villain vehicles into the show somehow.

Well they use mass amounts of vulture droids. You could consider fleet building.

JediTricks
12-02-2009, 04:04 PM
I don't like fleet building the vehicles, it sets a bad precedent because then I feel like I have to start buying more vehicles to balance THAT out, and it doesn't feel unique. I only buy vehicles for what makes them special, I don't have room to set up a whole thing. I had the AT-TE surrounded by the CIS forces I mentioned before, that was cool, but it's not like I could play with multiple vehicles at once beyond setting them down and picking one up to focus on.

Found all of the ESB wave at Valencia Super WalMart except for R2-X2. Found all of the ROTS wave at Valencia WalMart (behind Magic Mountain) except for concept IG-88. Both stores had the new Battlepacks as well but passed on those. The Valencia WalMart also had the new CW wave on the pegs. Stevenson Ranch WalMart was a bust as was Target.

Target West Hollywood put out a case of ROTJ, someone bent the cards up but it meant I was able to get the gray Ugnaught finally. I also bought the other Leia, figured I could do 1 standing and 1 sitting. Now I have 2 more of the R3-M3 torso, which I will need to trade for something else.

In San Diego, they had the new concept Ki-Adi Mundi with the eye patch.

I'm not interested in this figure since he never ends up looking like that, so I totally passed on him. But I did have him in hand.

I don't know what wave he's from.

They got TPM wave in again and I picked up another Holo Sidious and Gungan Warrior.

I also got another original Ahsoka Tano, probably from her re-release wave. That's a good figure and I like it better than her spacesuit wave.

They had Obi-Wan's Freco speederbike. Now that I look back on it, maybe I should have bought that. I think I'll pick it up the next time I see it around. I believe they're making Anakin and Rex in their snowgear, and the Talz. Those just weren't THAT important of episodes, so while I'm trying to cut back on toys, here's an opportunity.

Tycho, Spacesuit Ahsoka's head on Ahsoka 1.0's body = the best Ahsoka figure you can get.

I regret passing up the Freeco speeder twice now.

I guess I'll be hitting some Walmarts tomorrow in hopes of some ESB figures.

I headed out to Valencia Walmart in hopes of finding the ESB wave. There was none but I did find Masterpiece Skywarp and DCUC Power Girl. If anyone's still looking for Skywarp, there were around 20 of them. I nearly missed them as they were on a island display in front of electronics.
