Obi-Wan and clone troopers discover a macabre legacy of terror on Geonosis. The Jedi General and a team of clone troopers enter a Geonosian temple and find an underground hive of undead Geonosian warriors, their menacing queen â€“ and the frightening brain worms she uses to control her zombie army.
That poor last wave of Walmart exclusive DVD sets. The first two waves were straight and boring repacks. Then the third wave each includes a new clone trooper but gets cancelled. Thankfully discount chain TJ Maxx has saved us all by purchasing these sets from retail giant Walmart. The bonus here is that they are selling them for a much lower price than we would have paid originally at Wally World. The Legacy Of Terror (Obi-Wan Kenobi And Clone Trooper) (1 of 2) is not as exciting as the brain worm infested Brain Invaders (Ahsoka And Clone Trooper Scythe) (2 of 2) set, but we do get a unique style of the 212th Attack Battalion Clone Trooper with â€śhelmet lightsâ€ť as seen in the Legacy Of Terror episode from Season 2 of The Clone Wars. Weâ€™re going to be honest here. The revised Clone Trooper isnâ€™t anything too exciting. Hasbro did out forth that much effort to make this figure pop. In fact, at some angles you may not even notice the newly sculpted lights on the â€śtemplesâ€ť of his helmet. Still, we do appreciate the inclusion of something new here. Hasbro could have easily given us a set completely filled with repacks, but they didnâ€™t â€“ so thank the Maker for that!
We wonâ€™t go too deeply into this here because we already have in the Brain Invaders (Ahsoka And Clone Trooper Scythe) (2 of 2) review, but by now you have to be convinced that there is a major breakdown between Hasbro and Walmart (and retail in general) â€“ even if one side is fully to blame or not. Hasbro reps enter retail establishments to help with the various â€śshopsâ€ť in the toy department to make sure their product is available to purchase by the buying public. So why didnâ€™t these reps intercede in the case of the tail end of the year exclusives including the Ultimate Gift Set, the AT-RT Walker With ARF Trooper, the BARC Speeder With Clone Trooper Buzz and even these DVD sets? All of these exclusives were due into Walmart by the summer of 2011, but most didnâ€™t make it out until December and now the DVD sets didnâ€™t come at all until relegated to clearance fodder in March of 2012. Thankfully the latter three all did make it out to retail, but not in enough time for the entire holiday season to support them. But once again, this could have a negative impact on the exclusive program from Hasbro and we could see them scaling them back to avoid this mess in the future.
