This sucks.  When are these companies going to get decent computer systems to deal with the number of costumers who want to buy their products?

So now I'm going to see if someone wants to trade a BH Stormtrooper for a Toy Fair Vader.  Damn.

Those rumor lists came from GH via Adam_May and Jimmy_, there was a pretty big fallout from them and the article no longer appears on the site, so...I say take them with a grain of salt

He who shan't be named has historically had some of the best contacts and info of anyone in the realm of Hasbro Star Wars collecting.  He told me about a couple of things late last year that have only been confirmed in the past couple of months.

Scored a couple of the 2-packs today.  The maskless Daredevil set is one.  And the other was the set with the Leader with the classic look.  These things rule!  And I don't think the price I paid at a show for them was bad at $20 each.  These retail for what, $15 or $16?

Sweet mother of God is the Rancor HUGE!  I couldn't believe it until I actually saw it in person today.  The thing is gargantuan!  And it looks awesome, too.

I'm actually getting on a plane for this one.  Should be a very cool experience.  I've heard about Comic Con for years and now I'll get to see it in person.  Wondering if I should make a sidetrip down to Mexico while I'm there.  Hmmm.

This show has been pretty good historically.  I'm pretty enthused by the fact that Gentle Giant is going to be one of the exhibitors.  It would be nice if they had a mini-bust exclusive, but I guess we'll have to settle for a Bust Up for this first go around.

One of the real surprises is the anemic turnout from the Star Wars actors.  Matt Wood is definitely a cool guy to have appearing, but there are no other actors doing the show.  What gives?  This is one of the biggest shows on the East Coast, and there's only ONE Star Wars actor?  Weird.

Picked up the Tatooine wave Darth Vader.  I like the packaging and the accessories on this one.  Plus I only have the one 500th Vader open, and it's best left in the Meditation Chamber.  So I'll pick this one up for $6.99.

Scored a set of tri-logo Onslaught wave figures this weekend.  Pretty cool!  My favorites have to be Abomination, Pyro, Loki and Green Goblin.  Blackheart and Deathstrike are okay, but I'm not thrilled about them.

I honestly thought that the Onslaught BAF would be a little larger.  But the real concern there is that the shoulder joints appear somewhat frozen.

As for the variants, I'm really only interested in the Norman Osborn Goblin.  Not really interested in the variant Abomination or Loki.

Supposedly it IS Carnor Jax.  This info is coming from the admin at RS who first leaked the rumor that Kir Kanos would be an exclusive for this year and supposedly he said he'd already hinted at this in February but I guess I never saw that.

The rumor's been floating around since about November.  That's when I first heard something about this.

2005 would be the wrong copyright date for that piece.  That Vader came out around 2003 and in limited numbers (including promo pieces).  If anything, I think that the base is from one of those snowglobes, and the bust was probably cast from another Vader bust.

-ROTS 501st Clone Trooper from Jedi Temple Assault Battle Pack

How about a ROTS #41 SA or ROTS Evolutions in a 501 paint job?

I figured I would restrict my list to straight repacks.  And I don't think that the #6 Clone is a terrible figure in the grand scheme of things.

I would disagree with that do to the #41 clone doesn't have that stupid action quick draw feature and the shoulders look better on the #41.

You're entitled to that opinion.  But the thread was titled 5 most wanted repacks, not 5 most wanted repaints.  And like I said, IN THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS, the #6 Clone Trooper is not the worst figure ever issued by Hasbro.  A little persective is not a bad thing.  After all, I didn't list the original POTF2 Stormtrooper for repacking.  THAT is an inferior figure.
