These look good, but I didn't remember the ones shown in '12 having such small blister pack bubbles. Kinda glad this design didn't make it to market only due to the very tiny J-hook.
I wonder how much the card designs were modified for this release - it's interesting that the droid part is in the bubble with the figure as opposed to a separate piece like in 2008-2010.
I'd like to see them do other sets like this but with character selections that wouldn't sell at mass retail (i.e. Cliegg Lars, Jaxxon, etc.) as opposed to army builders.
Originally, I think they were concerned about theft and about getting casual consumers to look at the card more, so those rear windows made sense. But here there's no concern about on-the-shelf theft of the droid parts, and the value issue has become a much more vital selling point to the figures as the price has skyrocketed over the last 3 years.
Oh, yeah, it is acting squirrelly, I'll have it looked into.
I liked the "Zero Hour" two part season finale. I'm glad that the show didn't get rid of Thrawn, who is such a strong character, the way that

Mostly grading and TVing: saw the girls basketball team come up one game short of a STATE TITLE (still a great season, ladies) and other sports and cartoons
And speaking of the least-surprising news in the history of sports news: a certain dad's son declares for the draft the very next day.
I'm going to start spoiler discussion.
I liked seeing Thrawn with Death Troopers.
So much for Fulcrum 2.0. But I don't trust
There's a lot to unpack in this 2-parter, "Zero Hour." I'll wait for others to see it... impatiently so. But I'll say, wow.
Today was supposed to have rain. Nope: the winds blew those clouds out and made it a bit "cool" (mid-60s IIRC). Tomorrow's NASCAR race should
I'm so glad the basketball gods colluded to remove UCLA so that we no longer have to hear from THAT DAD...or at least hear less from him.
Still have 1/2 the Elite 8 (but only a Kansas win would give me a single Final Four team), and the OSU women's team lost to ND. I'm now completely de-tourney'd.
