And there is the original Holo figure, the Holo Sidious from Ep1 probably the best holo figure done in my opinion

I just finished watching "Rookies Family/Children"  HOLY CRAP!!!  Totally kick ass Episode.  Rex, Cody kicking butt, clone casualties (definately more adult oriented0.  The new seperatist Commando Droids, now that's what a battledroid should be.  I hope they make the Clone Landing Craft since it makes another appearance. This is now officially my favorite episode

Malevolence Rising in HD was, to put it mildly, freakin' awesome! By far the best "graphics" that I've seen associated with this new project. I loved it & hope they wrap this mini-trilogy in exciting fashion this weekend.

The final Episode is good as well. Parts reminded me of the Ep2 Droid Factory scenes though.

 Now this week's Episode in the US looks really cool.  It appears to be  an all clones Episode, no Jedi.

I think that is the Mos Espa set as I seem to recall Anthony Daniels saying the Mos Eisly set were actualy peoples homes that they had rented as he thought Lucas film was under paying for the use of the places but realised later that if they had paid western prices it would have destroyed the economy of the village.

I had a chance to watch the first two episodes on Cartoon network and I must admit that they were pretty good.  The battledroids were a bit corny though.  The violence level is more mature than I was expecting from a tv show, clones still die.  All in all a good watch

I saw titanium stuff but I really couldn't tell you if it was new or not, sorry :(

No biggie.
I just thought that I read somewhere saying that there would be something out for the 26th.  I'm going to Albany in a couple of weeks so I will see what there's to see.

There are 2 waves of Titaniums out in the states right now that are listed the hasbro checklist.  I have picked up most of them

I managed to make it to the midnight opening in Dallas and it was a feeding frenzy.  Stuff was being gobbled up before it could even make it to the shelves.  I managed to grab a Rebel pilots Evo #1 set and a Dagger Squadron B-Wing and the last Grevous that they had.  Not all the stores down here were ready by this morning either.   The Target I hit had nothing on the shelves when i showed up, but started set-up when a couple of us brought it to their attention

Wampa Cave / Re: Walmart exclusive gunship
« on: July 03, 2008, 05:12:10 PM »
If the picture is at all representational does this mean there won't be an open door under the cockpit?

  The actual gunship coming out is the same mold as before, still has the openings.  The instruction sheet is posted on Hasbro's website

Wampa Cave / Re: TRU CANADA -CLONE WARS Midnite opening...doubt it!
« on: July 03, 2008, 05:05:27 PM »
The best TRU ever did for any of the prequels was to open a couple hours early.  Never seen them do a midnight opening.  For ROTS I went down to Seatle for the midnight opening and came back then hit the TRU Canada in Burnaby opening at 7 or 8 am

Wampa Cave / Re: ANSWERS FROM HASBRO CANADA (older) - merged topic
« on: April 08, 2008, 01:31:02 PM »
Well there's that, but then places like Quebec can never get figures.

Personally I don't really care what type of packaging we get as long as we get the figures. I just don't understand why the pictures leave the cardback, because in terms of cost I can't see that being that much most then the Vader head.



There are a huge number of variables that come into play when costing print. What appears to be simple is actually very complicated. It is more cost effective to create a generic card that can be used for every figure instead of a specific card for each figure. I'm actually surprised they even go through the effort to change the card back per wave.

As far as creating a nice Tri-Lingual card, the language laws require that the French wording be given the same "real estate" as the english wording and then you have to tack on the Spanish... presumably with equal billing to avoid discrimination. I'm glad they aren't forcing the "La Guerre D'Etoilles" on the card... imagine that monstrosity.


  Where it costs the most is the setup time not the run time cost. To give it some numbers let's say it costs $10,000 to set up the printing machine for a cardback.  If you run 100,000 US cards it costs .10 per card.  If you are running Canadian Cards it still cost $10,000 to set up each card back and then only run 10,000 cards it cost $1.00 per card.  Hasbro like any company is in this to make money.
