  1. I think the AT-RT Squad is worth the money; two vehicles that retailed at about $20 each, three $7 figures, a superior and very nice paint scheme. Sure, the Bacara mold sucks and I don't know why Hasbro likes it so much and sure he has the giant stupid missile launching gun, but so what? Odds are you've got other guns somewhere he can use. Or just give him one of the driver's guns, they don't need em' for driving. A little touch I love is that the drivers and AT-RTs have insignias that match each other; driver one and machine one have a single dot within the box shape of their chest insignia, same with driver two and machine two with two dots, while the commander himself has a longer bar within his insignia. I think it's neat...
  2. Funny how Kmarts prices are inversely proportional to the quality and upkeep of their aisles.
  3. Damn, I just bought the AT-RT pack and the TIE Bomber today! Well, maybe the ARC and ARC pack will be on sale too...
  4. I would absolutely buy a TIE pilot made from that recipe, or perhaps several. You listening Hasbro?
  5. Originally I was gonna get one of each, but now I think if I get another, it will be another Endor one. I don't really need a giant hoth turret and while more VOTC Snow Troopers would be nice, I can always make room in my army for more speeder bikes and Storm Troopers, never mind the AT-ST.
  6. Not to bump this from the dead but... I went to Target today, partially on a hunch and partially because I was a little low on money and the owner of a local comic shop is a SW collector and will buy stuff off me that he has any interest in, and hit the jackpot! They were just stocking the shelves as I went in and I scored a Hermi Odle, Revan, McQuarrie Starkiller Hero, and Pre-Cyborg Grievous. I went back for a second sweep when I realized I had a few more bucks than I thought and could afford a couple more if I wanted and they had just put a Malak on the pegs! I took him too and was all stupidly excited, I was gushing to the two very nice and patient women stocking the pegs about how I never thought I'd even see half these figures and whatnot. Even with all I bought, there was still a McQuarrie Fett, Roron Corb, a Darktrooper and another Hermi still left. It was a crazy good find. Oh, and they also had the new comic packs (at least the Anakin/Assassin Droid one.)
  7. I bought the Endor one today. A very nice set, even though I got it mainly for the Imperial troops and vehicles, I can appreciate how awesome this would be to a little kid with a full array of good guys and bad guys and everything from the Endor fights short of a bunker. I was a little surprised the Speeder Bikes are glued together so they don't explode, but whatever.
  8. Yeah, I've seen the empty packaging of a SW Fifth Fleet trooper and a Luke with Vaporator figure with half it's backing card tore off sit on the pegs for months at the local Kmart. It's like no one even looks at the aisle.

    Yeah, I'm totally prepared to buy at least one of each. I could care less about the logs, ewoks and rebels; but I could definitely use some AT-STs, VOTC Snowtroopers and some speeder bikes for my currently rideless Biker Scouts. Fifty bucks seems a bit steep, but like others have said, it's a deal in actuality.
  10. I was curious,do you have a kohls near you?I found waves 5 and all of 6 there.They usually have some good mark downs like 20% off.which makes the figures about the same price as Walmart and Target.Just a suggestion. Dude, golden advice! I went to two Kohl's today to check it out, no Malak, Revan or Greivous, but three McQuarrie Snowtroopers and Mc Chewie (passed on him since his card was bent and I already have a carded one) and TC-14, whom I also passed on because I'm not sure of her rarity and I really want her myself. The best part was that the cute cashier girl whose line I was in turned out to be a huge Star Wars fan and I got her number (Oh, and I also found a Mc Vader and an Animation Debut Fett at Target right afterwards. Wooo!)
  11. Sweet! I like how the Batarangs on the board are those little things they use to pack some figures...I forget what I've gotten that used them but I know I've seen em'.
  12. So....someone who works at the company that just happens to produce both lines put in an easter egg for Joe fans, so what?
  13. Pfft. Awesome. That means the junk Walmart near me which still has yet to see wave 2 of the movie deluxes will never get em'.
  14. Sweet idea, I would have painted over the crotch license plate because i friggin' hate that, but totally awesome.
  15. I dunno man, I own all three as well and have no problem with getting their wings to stay put in either mode. You might just have really bad Starscream luck...
  16. Finally! Finally! I've been waiting for someone to do this since I first saw that mold! Totally awesome.
  17. Without the silencer on, fairly well, I'd say bout five or six feet. With the silencer on, the bullet tends to just slow down and fall out the end.
  18. I know, I was expected it be $100 or more, I was pleasantly surprised. I'm a terrible photographer, but here's a few pics.
  19. G1 Megatron reissue! Best part? No blaze orange cap and he has his little red chokey pellets to fire! I'm guessing he's the new Encore version since they also had Prime and Starscream and how they ever shipped him in is beyond me but I'm not complaining. I finally have a G1 Megatron. Taking him out of the package and holding him in my hand for the first time got me all giddy I'll tell you whut. Also, he was only $70 which is a damn steal.
  20. I think it's really cool that it's S6 styled. Master Chief could totally be on the Joe team.
  21. I would so get the C.O.B. variant if the Walmart near me ever got in anything I wanted.
  22. Well, with this and the Hoth pack, that'll be about $200 down the drain... (As in "I'll need two of each")
  23. I haven't seen either BB, but the wave 2 deluxes have finally started showing up near me at least, seen Dreadwing, Payload, Drop Kick, Final Battle Jazz and Arcee.
  24. That giant jawpiece makes him look like Trapjaw. Don't get me wrong, I love when they put little things in like that, but because of how big it has to be to do that, I think it would have been better with a more correctly scaled, non-removable jaw. God, I forgot that Malak is pretty much just a guy in red pajamas...
  25. I got one the other day too, surprised the hell out of me.
