The Star Wars News and Toy Haul Thread

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

One of Walmarts' black Friday deals was an eight pack of Clone Wars and other figures for $25, and I bought one. It was one of those things where it's eight more or less random figures but these were a lot of figs I'd never seen in the wild before. I got a pack that contained a Clone Wars Commando Boss from the Delta Squad, Commanders Wolfe and Rex (newer ones, not the original CW ones) the first wave Obi-Wan and Anakin, a target practice Super Battle Droid, Avalya Secura and a Phase II armor clone.

Does anyone know of a Seibertron equivalent for SW figures? I am not a collector, but my son has entered the Star Wars phase of life and is obsessed with lightsabers, droids, and the like. It would be handy to stay up on new releases, etc.


Thanks,
I.P.

P.S. I have googled up quite a bit, but would like a site with an "endorsement" so to speak....

Sorry to leave you hanging, but to answer your question unfortunately, I am not aware of any such sites. I know they exist, but personally I don't frequent any. I think it's rad that you're doing this research on behalf of your son though, that warms my heart. I'm totally doing that kind of thing when I have children.

No no, applause to you. You're doing a wonderful thing, and I hope it's going well.

Yesterday I found a Battle Pack of Clones from some kind of KAmino Assault or somehting, from the Clone Wars series I guess. I'd seen it before, and it contains an orange Bomb Disposal clone, a Clone in the training armor and some other, named clone. I'd seen it at Targets and such for like 20$ but got it yesterday at MArshall's for 13$. Yay! I really love collecting Clones, but the 10 buck price peer slender, frail soldier is none too appealing to me, so a buy like this is a real win.

I love the irony of collection repaints of the Clones. Good to know that some of this stuff is showing up 'discounted'. I agree that $10 can get a bit steep - especially for army building.

I'm a Seeker fanatic when it comes to TFs, so repaints are totally fine with me. But yeah, as far as the clone troopers go, I've got tons of them but even I must say the 'repaints' of them are often silly. During the ROTS toyline, or the Saga Legends or whatnot, there were some cool ones, but nowadays they've just gotten silly. I'm not a fan of the slight body design anyway, so I generally stay away from the newer clones. But back in the Battle Pack days, when you could get a Mace Windu and four or five of the clones from his unit, oh yes. I bought me all of them.
Clones are/were also the only thing I've ever army built, BECAUSE I can convince myself that they're different from each other. Unlike Stormtroopers or what have you, which all look the same and usually aren't even paint differentiated.

Happy May the 4th everyone. To celebrate here's a review I did earlier in the week of the Class I SW/TF Darth Vader. It's good for what it is and makes a great desk toy.

Just got back from Star Wars Weekend at Disney. My son made out like a bandit. Made two R units, made a light saber, and got quite a few Disney-characters-as-Star-Wars-characters action figures (Micky/Luke, Goofy/Cad Bane, Pluto/R2, Hewey Dewey Lewey/Jawas, Stitch/Yoda).

That parade was awesome!

Ive been there before. its such an awesome experience if your a fan of the franchise. I got away with a dual light saber i got to build and some pretty awesome pictures with so realistic looking characters from the movies. Im curious to see if Disney will expand on it now that they own star wars
