  1. I agree. I actually sold my G1 collection in 2007 in favor of strictly collecting Masterpiece and Binaltech because they were much truer to the original cartoon's designs. However over the last year I have gotten back into collecting G1 and partially because they were just fun toys from my childhood. So with this being said, you should totally get the Encore 20A 'cause those cartoon colors look sharp and breathe new life into a toy mold that's almost thirty years old!
  2. Stopped by the 5 Below in my area (upstate NY) and they had Klatuu, Wedge (which I'll point out is on his original Vintage card with the ROTJ wave on the back), and a bunch of Zam's and Padme's. At $5 per figure, it's a great deal!
  3. Found the Dr. Evazan wave at TRU today with a "buy one get one 50% off" sale going on. Keep it coming!
  4. A friend who works at Target texted me the other day letting me know they got new Vintage figures in. He asked me who I was looking for and I told him it'd be easier for him to tell me who they had haha. I was shocked to see Target had gotten in the Malgus wave, and I suspect we'll be seeing the figures we've missed through the year as Christmas approaches.
  5. Found the Clone Wars Attack Dropship at Target the other day. This toy is fun! Pick it up if you find one.
  6. While I was out picking up supplies for Hurricane Sandy (I'm in upstate NY) I also took advantage of K-Mart's sale prices and picked up an AT-ST for $29.99 and the AT-ST Driver 2 pack for $12.99. Awesome toys minus the fact that the AT-ST falls over...a lot. Which totally sucks cause it kinda ruins the toy if it can't stand.
  7. I actually liked this one. The general who joins the rebellion had a great character design, and we saw some development in Ahsoka's character too. I agree that we can move on from this story line though.
  8. I found the Ewoks/AT-ST Drivers two packs at KMart last night, and they had plenty of them. Great job Hasbro! The packaging is awesome, the price is right, and the Drivers fit in the AT-ST perfectly.
  9. I liked it! It was a single episode season opener unlike the last few seasons which were two parters, but I didn't mind. It seems the Maul brothers are poised to take over the underworld, and Adi Gallia is dead. I'm looking forward to this season. Agent Adam, when/where did Adi Gallia die? Book, comic, elsewhere?
  10. (Great post by the way, Guitar Devil!)
  11. Still haven't seen the Dollar Store figures, but while at my local Toys R US yesterday, they restocked their Joe pegs with a case of 2010 POC figures. I wonder if Hasbro is sending out older figures while waiting for the release date for next year's movie figures.
  12. It really is unfortunate. It seems that he's been bullied and picked on growing up as a result of starring in Episode I and that can have very negative impact on an adolescent. Watch any interview with him over the last few years and you can see how jaded he is. And as someone who was bullied growing up, I wish him the best.
  13. What's the price on your Clone Wars? Ours are $3.96. And where are you located? I want to say Florida?? Also nice find with the Royal Starship Droids. I still haven't seen them, but they make me want to buy the Royal Starship again. Heck all these Ep 1 figures make me wish I didn't sell my Ep 1 stuff years ago! Quinlan Vos is a character that became popular in the comics. He was also on an episode of Clone Wars last season. Good episode too.
  14. I agree. It adds depth to Star Wars universe.
  15. Had some pretty solid hauls over the last week or so. Since Wal Mart is having their $4 clearance on Vintage figures I was able to snag the Episode I wave for $4 a pop! Despite the fact they were ringing at full price, I pointed out to a manager that the pegs didn't differentiate between new or old product, so they hooked me up with the sale price. Then a few days later at another Wal Mart, I found the new deleted scene wave for full price. Strangely enough, the main toy aisle had the clearance price on Klattu's, but the new figures I founds at full price in their clearance section on the other side of the store. Wrap your brain around that one!!! Anyways, using my smarmy, Calrissian-esque charm on the lady ringing me out, she sold them to me for $4 instead of full price. Everything's coming up Milhouse!
  16. Great episode tonight! A definite favorite of the season! And Hamster, there's still time for Dengar to get hurt Swoop racing with Solo in the future. Seriously though, there is a lot of emotional development this season, and this episode is no exception. In addition, I love the action packedness (is this a word???) from tonight--bounty hunters versus bug riding space ninjas!! A couple of nice touches are young Boba with different armor, Bossk is badass, the killer robot's voice is awesomely sinister, and young Dengar. Sure people are thinking, "Hey isn't he the overweight hunter from ESB?". But remember you guys, ESB takes place roughly, what, twenty years from CW? Plenty of time to pack on the pounds! I want action figures of every member of Boba's team. C'mon Hasbro, hook us up (please)!! Make mine Clone Wars!!
  17. Had to stop at Target yesterday before work for my sister and was lucky enough to find Clone Wars Chewbacca, new Captain Rex, Jar Jar, Commander Colt, Armored Savage Opress, R7-D4, and Even Piell. I wasn't even planning on making a toy run anytime soon, but I'm glad I did!
  18. Picked up Search for Luke Skywalker BP and Vintage Taun Taun today at Target in Saratoga, NY! Kind of strange however that the Battle Pack which contains two action figures and the Taun Taun are the same price as just the Vintage one with no extra figures.
  19. I was hoping at least for some surprise holiday OT Ultimate Battle Packs of some kind. Low overhead and high profit for Hasbro. Oh well, some pretty decent offerings however, even if I'm not interested in the Ep 1 stuff.
  20. Picked up Capture of the Droids tonight at the new Wal Mart in Glens Falls. Already have the Cad Bane, but really excited about R2 and especially 3PO.
  21. YoJoeBro, nice score man! (Happy Birthday too!) On a toy run last week looking for wave 9, I found CW Quinlan Vos at a Wal Mart so I snagged him. And found all of wave 9 at the new Wal Mart that opened up in upstate NY (Glens Falls).
  22. The return of Darth Maul should be interesting. It sounds like they want to keep him around for awhile too!
  23. Watched Shadow Warrior and Mercy Mission tonight...both good episodes. Not great, but there were good parts to both. The episodes this season seem to lacking something...epic about them. However the fight scene with the Gungans vs. Grevious was pretty awesome!
  24. Picked up a Stealth Ops Clone and Commander Gree from Toys R Us yesterday. Using two TRU rewards $5 off coupons and the store having the $5.59 sale per figure, I was able to buy them both for $1.26!
  25. Yahzee!! Yeah, a nod to the micro series would have been nice.
