Modern Classifieds / mail-away galactic heroes
« on: January 14, 2006, 03:08 PM »
Kinda last minute.

You guys might remember the Galactic Heroes mail-away that came witth the first wave of Burger King SW promotions last year -- buy $20 worth of Hasbro SW toys between mid-May thru December of '05, postmark before 1/15/06, get a couple of Galactic Heroes figures while supplies last. These were limited to 1 per household.

While cleaning up, I found a few leftover forms. I have enough receipts and UPCs to cover them. I don't want them to go unused, so if you haven't already sent one in, send me your name and address through pm and I'll mail out a form to Hasbro in your name. I'll check my box until 12:30pm pst, today, 01/14/06.

At this stage of the promo, there are no guarantees that you'll receive a pack since it states on the form that quantities are limited.

The movie stinks but I like the toys. Anyone else buy these? Hello? Hello?

The handful of you who picked up some figures or perused the backs at the TRU may recall the low-res images of the 2 fighters, the Rapier and Dralthi. There's a write up and pics of the prototypes here.

Highlights of the article:

- the ships never made it into production (contrary to rumors)

- the ships will be displayed at DragonCon this year (if the article is recent)

- the movie was billed as a kiddie flick so X-Toys decided to initially make toys instead of collectables.

- a detailed 9-inch line for later release was part of the plan

- production of the 3-3/4" figures totaled only 10,000 -- at least that's the way I'm reading the article, though it might have meant 10,000 of each figure. Either way, that sounds like a small run.

- sales of Wild Wild West sucked even more than Wing Commander
