In light of new toys shipping, the Blu-Ray bonanza, and everything else going on which may or may not involve a certain blonde star's backside on a cell phone, you no doubt forgot that the two-part season premiere of The Clone Wars aired on Cartoon Network earlier tonight.
The Star Wars Blu-Ray hit stores (and mailboxes) today, and as expected the complete Star Wars Holiday Special animated segment is included. If you ever wanted to see what was basically a backdoor pilot for Droids, it's here!
This is the new Saesee Tiin from The Clone Wars, which is a very good figure with a very cruddy jetpack.
Last year's Darth Vader was barely a new figure-- it's a tinkered revision of a figure mold that debuted in 2005. It's still really good though-- I almost wish the helmet was not removable, but that's my life. Read on!
After a sneak peek at Comic-Con in San Diego, pre-orders are now up for the Entertainment Earth Exclusive Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise Animated Maquette. It's a statue, scaled to the existing classic and Clone Wars animated maquettes made by the company over the past few years.
The case includes the following 12 action figures, including a few holdovers from Wave 7:
There have been many, many versions of Captain Rex and this one, from a 2010 ARC Troopers Battle Pack, is likely the hardest to get. He has a unique helmet and gun, for starters-- so should you get it? Read on!
If all that weren't enough, the very charming LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace TV special is coming to home video at Wal-Mart this week. It's $13.00 and includes young Han Solo-- the same figure was handed out as a promo item at Comic-Con, if you were very lucky or in the right place. Just click here to pre-order, or wait to hit up Wal-Mart this weekend when you get your 2 gallon pickle jar, rubber gloves, AAA batteries, and/or sack of peanut M&Ms.
I rant a little about the Blu-Ray releases of the week! We talk about mail-in offer order forms and more swap-outs! And is it time to reboot Star Wars completely? All this and more, just read on!
Also important: Cartoon Network has two episodes of The Clone Wars airing this coming Friday, and it seems we're being treated to a massive quantity of water battles. Be sure to set your DVRs!
The Star Wars Saga Blu-Ray hits this Friday, and it seems that the price wars have not started yet. Amazon, Wal-Mart.com, and Target presently have the best price in the USA with $79.99 for all 6 films. And remember, the trilogy sets do not include the bonus feature discs.
In stores right now is the Droid Attack on the Coronet, exclusive to Toys R Us stores and retailing for $24.99. But if you only look in the big display in the front of the store, you'll miss it.
Agent of the Empire - Iron Eclipse heads up the Dark Horse titles in December which features a James Bond inspired galactic secret agent. Kir Kanos has his day with The Empire in Crimson Empire #3 and Jedi Kerra Holt must battle to save a planet in the final issue of Knight Errant - Deluge.
