yeah nice to see them expanding. glad to see everybody didn't go in with Mega Blocks when they were buying up licenses left and right.

Also this gives hope of a Lego Indiana jones game!

woo hoo!

Actually in the batch of Lego boxes that are part of the Survey are 4 of the Indiana Jones sets. and actually NONE of them are for the new movie. 3 of them are from Raiders of the Lost arc. A large set depicting the temple with the Golden Monkey head that comes Jock and a Biplane.  The Second is the Map Room which they call the "Snake pit", third is the Treasure Pursuit (Indy pusuing the Truck w/ the Arc), and the 4th set is from Last Crusade. it's called Motercycle Pursuit and it's Indy and his father (yes a Sean Connery Mini-fig) plus 2 Nazi Motercycles. I can only hope we see a good couple Temple of Doom sets with a lego Short Round

LEGO / Lego 2008
« on: June 16, 2007, 01:17 AM »
I used to be a Seasonal Lego Merchandiser and i've remained in contact with the Full Timer that is in the area I used to work in... Aparently there is a survery of sorts that Lego is doing now that involves folks getting a look at and giving their opinion for some of packaging for the upcomming products for 2008. They've sent packages of boxes to the Merch's in many major cities. Some of the test boxes they've sent are for some of the new Star Wars products.

There is a Anakins Jedi Starfighter with a Clone Wars Logo.
A Stormtrooper Dropship with a Force Unleashed Logo
and A At-PT "Pod Walker" with Clone Wars Logo

also there are some other lines that are getting some interesting new looks and a new License that I for one am extremely excited about seeing in Lego form.... 


**Edit**

And now after seeing the packaging in person I can reveal a bit more:
The AT-PT comes with 2 clones and looks very very good

The Stormtrooper dropship is not affiliated with any particular event however it does have a large logo that does say "build your armies" and comes with 2 Stormies and a Tie Pilot

The Anakin Starship from Clone wars is Grey and Yellow (very Similar to Saesee's Starfighter)

The Set from the Force Unleashed is The Rogue Shadow (I believe) it is Vader's Apprentices ship apperantly and comes with Vader's Apprentice, A very hacked up Vader and the Female Imperial Officer (who's name escapes me right now)

Sorry I can't give picks but all this is very very hush hush and I'm sure I'm breaking some confidetiality things by telling this much! But 2008 is gonna be a great year for legos!!!

Hey Hasbro! / Re: Questions for Hasbro?

Since we are seeing the bantha Rereleased as part of a new battle pack I was wondering what the chances we'll see the Rancor make a return. While my reasons for wanting this are a little selfish (after many many years my Rancor was reasently killed in an incident involving my 3 kids and his attempts to fly, RIP Fluffy!!!) I'm sure that there are some other collectors out there who would love a new Rancor with updated paint apps and a couple fig's included for a new battlepack.

I'd say pretty good since it's already slated to be a TRU Exclusive this year.


Sweet! I hadn't heard that! good to know. Fluffy will live again!

Saga Collection '06 / Re: 2006 TRU Clone Wars Gunship
« on: May 10, 2006, 01:12 PM »
This bad boy is in Stores in Cincinnati. I picked mine up this weekend and canceled my order w/ amazon. I recieved an email that both my gunship and Hunt for Grevious packs were going to be pushed back to June so I cancelled the Gunship. If I find the Battlepack i'll can that order too.

Also spoke to the manager at the TRU I got my gunship at and he said that (at least at that particular store) they've always gotten the things that are "online only" and that (off the record) TRU wasn't in a position to bank on anything selling well enough online So the stuff hits the stores too. The "online only" is just a snag to try to lure people for a definate sale rather than having to hunt it down... and to nab em for shipping.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: The Saga Collection - The Stands
« on: May 10, 2006, 01:06 PM »
I like the stands. Tho i actually (of course now years after they've all but dissappeared) prefer Comtech chips for my troops. it keeps em nice and close. they new stands are good tho. much better than the ROTS ones that didn't really allow for nice row by row orginizing. Good for dioramas and such. not as much "inspecting the troops"

Revenge of the Sith / Jedi Temple Assault

Alrighty i've confirmed this around Cincinnati personally and through phone calls Dayton and Columbus Ohio, The Jedi Temple assault Battle packs have started to show up at local Kmarts (i've seen them at 5 different stores myself) is this a national trend or is just the ohio area distribution had a bunch hiding?
