The Black Series 3.75" Figures / 16 Most Useless SW Figures

Interesting (and funny) article over at io9:

Be curious to see what we all consider the most 'useless.'

Hey Hasbro! / Keeping The Clone Wars Line Going
« on: February 24, 2013, 02:40 PM »
I was thinking the other day about the tremendous amount of unrealized potential the CW line still has, and like a lot of us at the end of the vintage Kenner line, there are a ton of figures that are 'must-haves' that will never see. One thing that strikes me as odd is Hasbro's complete abandonment of the line. The show is still running, now in syndication; it still draws enough viewers to make it viable for CN or Disney to continue with it, so why no support for it at all? As the original Batman animated series was winding down, Kenner kept that line going for years through exclusive gift sets, primarily at TRU, that milked repaints and retools but still provided enough newness to appeal to collectors. A lot of fan favorites - Alfred, Talia - appeared this way.

Hasbro could do the same. The CW line already is heavily dependent on recycling molds and parts. Continuing the line as exclusive battle packs at say TRU - who routinely carries these types of items for Hasbro anyhow - would be a surefire way to generate sales and keep interest by producing sets of four or five figures or so that were primarliy repaints/retools with the exception of a newly sculpted character, limited in POA. It's also a way to get some very hard to find figures back out there. What do you guys think? TRU has been carrying four and five packs as exclusives (Ewoks, Pilots) recently, so that's the model I follow below.

Here are some quick hits that seem natural to me:

Lair of Grievous:

Clone Commander Fil
Clone Trooper Bel
Clone Trooper Niner
Nahdar Vebb
Kit Fisto


Obi-Wan (Cold Gear)
Anakin (Cold Gear)
Talz Warrior
Clone Trooper (Cold Gear)

Republic Pilots:

Clone Pilot Broadside (Phase I Armor)
Clone Pilot Mack (Phase I Armor)
Clone Pilot Hawk (Phase I Armor)
Clone Stealth Pilot
Clone Pilot Rod (Gojiís Turret Gunner) (Phase I Armor)

Jedi Warriors:

Anakin Skywalker
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Mace Windu
Tera Sinube

Bounty Hunters

Cad Bane
Aurra Sing (New Bounty Hunter Gear/Outfit)

The Mandalore Plot:

Mandalorian Trooper 2x
Obi Wan Kenobi
Duchess Satine

Lethal Trackdown:
Auura Sing
Boba Fett (Poncho)
Speeder Bike

There are LOTS more that I'll play around with later but this is what I came up off the top of my head.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Clone Wars Most Wanted
« on: December 9, 2011, 08:41 PM »
I know there's a wishlist thread, but I thought with the doom and gloom about the CW line in general, it'd be fun to start a thread where we can promote the figures we want to see.  I see a lot of 'there's nothing left to ask for' comments around the web, and I don't think that's true.  I'd love to see petitions and drives for some of these figures.  So here's mine:

Must Have:

Night Sister
Mother Talzin
Commander Fil
Fil Trooper
Trandoshan Hunter
Tera Sinube

Love to have:

King Kutunko
Toydarian Guard
Rumi Paramita
Chancellor Palpatine
Onaconda Farr
Cut Laquane
Mandalorian Royal Guard
Adi Gallia

Leaving off a lot of clones, but I can't remember most of them, so if we get them, great!

Gentle Giant / Gentle Giant Jumbo Vintage Jawa
« on: July 15, 2010, 08:10 PM »
I'll be all over the Jawa, but I'm kind of wondering what the aim of all this is - what does everyone else think?

Most likely from a future Target 2 pack?

No idea who he is.

Vintage Kenner / Star Wars Figures Doing What They Do Best

Check out this cool little site I found.

So I see a couple of us are writers on here, so I thought I'd share a link to this very fun new site called Fictionaut.  It's sort of Facebook for writers - it's a place for writers of any stripe to go and share their stories with other writers and have constructive commentary back and forth.  I write novels - my first is coming out early next year - and I struggle with anything short, so this is really an outlet for me to experiment and develop some creative muscle without any real strings. 

Check it out if you're interested!

I'm not sure on what to ask for on this, but I'll throw it out there and if it's off then someone will let me know:

Updated 1/19:

MIB Saga Trash Compactor Set Leia & Chewie $25
Loose Saga Trash Compactor Set Han & Luke $15
Saga Bespin Luke Bloody hand variant MOC $20
Saga R2 w/ sounds w/ insert MOC $15
Saga Dexter Jettser w/ insert MOC $10
MOC TRU Silver R2-D2 $10

Some LOTR:

TTT red box Boromir $30 (PENDING)
TTT red box Twilight Frodo $20
TTT red box Gandalf the Whiter $15

I prefer to sell these, but I will consider trading one of them 1 for 1 for Epic Series 2 Eowyn.

PM if interested.† Thanks for looking!


So looking over the rumor list, the big thing that jumps at you is the serious lack of updated SA figs we all wanted.† Among them are Qui Gon, Obi Wan (TPM and AOTC) Darth Maul, Jango Fett, Mace, Yoda, Endor Luke/Leia/Han, Scout Trooper, Snow Trooper, and so on.

And then I was thinking, out of all the force battlers/attactix/GH/transformers/choppers madness, the one thing we haven't heard anything about for next year is the usual $10 deluxe figure.† Where is it?† Gone for good?† And then I thought... wait a sec.† Wasn't there a rumor about more VOTC figs?† Like PT ones too?† Maybe this is where all the main character love will be next year.
Any ideas?
