LEGACY OF TERROR Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi & Clone Trooper DVD Two Pack
Since The Clone Wars line started back in 2008, there have been a number of releases, mainly 2-packs and primarily Walmart exclusives, that have also included a bonus DVD. Starting with a set of three that featured six characters from the Malevolence story-arc from season 1 that were released in 2010, these were followed by Weapons Factory and Landing at Point Rain in 2011. A further two-sets, Legacy of Terror and Brain Invaders, were announced as a Walmart exclusive at San Diego Comic Con in July, 2011, with an anticipated on-shelf date of August of that year. Unlike the previous waves of DVD 2-packs however, these would not comprise straight repacks.

August came and went and the sets failed to materialise in the US as expected, amid reports that they had been cancelled, so it was something of a surprise when they appeared in several discount chains in March 2012, and at a lower price than would have been the case had Walmart sold them.

About This Set
  • The original Obi-Wan figure from 2008 has been rolled out once again, meaning that there is no articulation in the knees or ankles. This time around the figure was repainted, and is an improvement featuring tighter details on the eyes and a beard coloured darker than the figures hair. But let's face it, you won't be buying this set for Obi-Wan, even a repainted one. What will be of most interest to collectors is the 212th Battalion Clone Trooper, thought to be Gearshift, but referred to as plain old Clone Trooper on the packaging, who comes complete with new tooling on the helmet, giving him side headlights. Other than that, the figure is much like previous releases of the 212th Battalion Clone Troopers, including ankle and knee articulation.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
