12" Figures / 12" Cad Bane?
« on: March 2, 2010, 02:19 PM »
I was going over some Sideshow QnA's from early December, and the question was asked; "...is there any chance for a 12-inch Cad Bane...?"

Well the answer was kind of odd; "We have a semi-clever idea to bring him to a product sooner than later, but we're going to take our time to get a real meaty Cad Bane figure worked out..."

What do you make of that? I have an Idea. Cad Bane is a very unique character with a complicated outfit and tons of accessories. But there was one scene in Children of the Force where he had none of that, the scene where he disguised himself as a clonetrooper to make his escape. More exactly he was in Trooper Denal's armor.

Well Sideshow already has their Phase I clonetrooper armor all ready to go, I think it would be "semi-clever" to make a Cad Bane head attach it to the body and call it "Cad bane in Disguise!" If they included Denals uniquely painted helmet (with Macrobinoculars...) that would make it better! Of course if they included the trooper backpack and Jedi Holochron that would be "semi-genious".

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: New or Redone Clone Commandoes?
« on: December 2, 2009, 01:12 PM »
I'd like to see new Commandos done.

I'm a big astromech fan, can't have too many. The second droid is here on my desk at work.

I was fiddling with the laders last night, turns out you can snap them together with the bottom of the red ladder slipping into the slots of the yellow, making some kind of half bridge. They are clearly meant to fit together I just can't figure out why.

Also you can slip the top of he red ladder in the slots to make a fairly insecure step ladder.

Picked up a second X-Wing added a little red stripe to each wing to make Red 3 (Biggs).

Hey Hasbro! / Re: Questions for Hasbro?

Hey Hasbro the Target exclusive X-Wing is great! I love that it comes with both a pilot and an astromech with a couple of ladders thrown in as icing on the cake. I'm wondering though if you're willing to "up the ante" and in your next exclusive X-Wing or OTC Y-Wing, give us all that again with the addition of a Rebel hangar transport with operator?

Hey Hasbro, with the foreknowledge that the Build-A-Droid pack-in concept will eventually end and the fact that the Evolutions line is retiring, have you considered combining both, using existing tooling, for a new line in the future? Do you think kids and collectors would be interested in a 3 pack of astromechs (one perhaps being R2-D2 that you could take apart) with additional domes and rocket legs that can be swapped, or a set of uniquely painted protocol droids, or perhaps another set with repaints of the aggressive droids, all with parts than can be swapped to make unique figures?  Darth Gamboa

R5-A7

According to my notes, based off Hasbro QnAs and interviews they plan to release;

PUNISHING ONE
MIST HUNTER
MALEVOLENCE
OUTRIDER

NEBULON B FREIGHTER
REPUBLIC GUNSHIP (POSSIBLE RETOOL)
DROID GUNSHIP (POSSIBLE REPAINT)
HAILFIRE DROID (POSSIBLE REPAINT)
DEATHSTAR (RUMOR)

Keep your eyes and ears open as tailend releases these could prove hard to acquire. I hope I'm wrong.

Picked up Hyena Droid, Anakins Podracer and Gold 5 at Wal-Mart yesterday.

Hyena is bit of a disapointment, actually smaller than Vulture and a lot more plastic. Podracer is very well done though. Gold 5, possibly the last of the Y-wing repaints, when compared to the CW Y-wing really shows how the sculpting philosophy has changed through the years with it's heftiness compared to CWs barely there vehicle.

10
The Vulture droid that came out last year is painted differently than the first one. The most notable change is the seperatist emblem.

11
I picked up a lone Xanadu blood yesterday at Target (Cad Banes ship/ P-38 repaint) must have just missed the Hyena bomber.

12
I believe Hasbro implied in one of their QnA's that R5-X2 will be available as a buildable droid in the upcoming ROTS wave.


Edit: My BAD, it's R5-H6 we're getting not R5-X2

13
MON CALAMARI STAR CRUISER
ANAKINS PODRACER
X-WING RED 5 (FIRST OF THE MOVABLE WINGS)
VIPER MARK VII CLEAN

14
I found those last 2 at Wal-Mart after work yesterday.

According to my notes Wave 8 should be out by May, and is slated to have only 3 new vehicles;

Hounds Tooth
Clone Wars Y-Wing
X-Wing Red 4 (repaint)

The rest, repacks. However one will be Sebulbas Podracer, good news if you missed that one last year.
