It seems the last few waves of both Legacy and Clone Wars figures have been scarce on toy shelves these past few months, but in time for Black Friday new toys are hitting and hitting hard. Be it the new revision of the Ughnaught, Cad Bane, the A New Hope Wave, or exclusives like Wal-Mart's Dewback or AT-ST, the time for collectors to shop is now! On the latest episode of Star Wars Action News, hosts Arnie, Marjorie, and Scott talk about which stores are most likely to have the figure you're looking for.
Also this week on the podcast is a Hasbro Q&A discussing the sales of the Clone Turbo Tank, the ending of the Comic Pack line, the will-they-or-won't-they of the Bespin Guard variant, and the did-they-or-didn't-they of the Bearded/Beardless Hoth Trooper variant.
With news of great online bargains and a recap of last Friday's Gentle Giant PGM sale, it's all on this week's Star Wars Action News Podcast!
1) In the upcoming Holocron Heist battle pack is the included Cad Bane figure any different than the currently shipping carded version?
2) How relevant were the sales of last year's AT-TE to the release of this year's Clone Turbo Tank, and do the sales you've seen on the Turbo Tank indicate we might get a similarly large vehicle next year? (As the CTT was shown at Toy Fair in February it had to have been started quite a bit before then I'd assume).
3) With the results of the Fan's Choice poll revealed from all the major sites, were there any figures that shocked you? And were there any figures the sites voted for but could not be put on the list for one reason or another (and if so, who and why)?
Its that wonderful time of the year. Time to pop in the Star Wars Holiday Special and enjoy the sounds of a Christmas in the Stars. Its also time again for the Star Wars Action News Sithmas Gift Exchange. We tried this in years past with great success. So celebrate the Saga and the joy of the holidays with your fellow SWANlings.
