yesterday at Target I found the wave 2 figures and I bought the stormtrooper

the bubble was firmly attached to the card
I ripped the paper off of the card pulling the bubble off, just like the good old days

Wave 2 Saga Legends characters seem to be firmly attached to their cardbacks, at least the ones I've spotted thus far. Seems they've tackled and corrected the peeling bubble problems with the newest Saga Legends assortments....let's just hope they do the same for the Black Series and eliminate all the existing bubble problems with that line.

Yellow tape is particularly appropriate. Almost like a crime scene. And these things are a crime.

If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..

Pretty much a microcosm for the current state of Hasbro, isn't it? :P

Battle packs clearanced down to $5.00 at Marshalls/TJ Maxx in my area. Now if only the market preferred inferior versions of characters they already have...

Those figures were still a lot better than Movie Heroes Wave 1. And, honestly, almost all the Saga Legends and Mission Series figures we've seen thus far. They have better paint apps, more detailing and just look premium even if they're not. They have prehistoric articulation, but their paint jobs and aesthetics are just plain superior to the newest 5-POA characters, and the heads are spitting images of the film actors.

That Maul has a better head sculpt than super articulated Mauls.

If only the big box retailers had the sense to liquidate their leftover 2012 stock before it fossilized on the shelves.

That would have been great, I just wonder what sort of true "incentive" they saw (or didn't see) in doing that. They may have felt it was best just to cut ties with all Movie Heroes/TVC until new lines emerged.

^ Movie Heroes at Big Lots, $5.00 each. Good for people who want cheaper prices but don't have Five Below stores in their area.
