Comes with 20 droids?!?
That alone would be $100 at $5 apiece (which is a lowball estimate given hw Hasbro prices pack-in figures lately). Then a ship big enough to carry them, and electronics? Don't get me wrong; this is one of the few TPM toys I'd actually want, but, holy crap, how much will this cost?
The word is that 16 of the droids are stuck in the folded-up pose, so only four are actually articulated (I'm assuming it'll be the Vintage one, but I'm not sure). It might also come with Obi-Wan Kenobi for whatever reason. I'm thinking it won't be above $150, since much of it will be empty space inside the transport.
This is so awesome. Tycho is so very happy he is talking about himself in the 3rd person!
JediTempleArchives got a boxed image of the vehicle. The box looks to be pretty huge. For whatever reason, the figure in the mock-up is a Clone Wars battle droid, though I have to assume it will be a film-accurate one when it comes out.
I hope that the droids included can connect their blasters to their backpacks, since sadly the TVC one cannot.
JabbaJohnL's link says it might be a retailer exclusive. El Chuxter, who is mimicking Tycho with the third-person thing, is a bit apprehensive about that. Especially since the most likely retailer to "bite" on something that massive is Toys R Us, where it will be anything but cheap.
People have confirmed it in Target's computers at $129.99. Could it be an exclusive there, or available everywhere? Target didn't really get any other good exclusives for the 3D release (just the Sith repacks), while Walmart went nuts for it with the Discover the Force line. This seems more along the lines of a TRU exclusive than a Target exclusive, so I bet it's not an exclusive at all. I assume we won't get details until NYCC since I don't think there are Targets in the UK at all, and thus they wouldn't mention its exclusivity at the UK show. We'll have to wait, I think.
Also, if you look at the photo, the droids are actually all standing up, probably to accommodate previous, non-folding releases. Hopefully it can still carry folded ones as well.
Its worth the $130 for the motorized droid deployment alone! This will be cool! I don't have the money for this tho, I still never got the new AT-AT. Our lil girl maybe starting school in the fall though, so maybe the daycare lady will stop taking half of my paycheck, then I will be able to get one opf these beauties.
Timothy Zahn must've LOVED these two: Interdictor Cruisers, Thrawn in ground battle gear, his plans would've been flawless were it not for the (blatantly-obvious)
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.
I see that you, too, are a fan of this upcoming release.
So next, next week is the release day (I have seen differing dates), right? On Tue., early morning April 4 (shots rings out, in the Scarif sky), yes?
