series 1:
ceremonial luke
ceremonial han
princess leia
chewbacca
c-3po
yoda

series 2:
darth sidious
darth vader
royal guard
stormtrooper
count dooku
darth maul

there's also a bounty hunter wave, but i don't think that's available for preorder just yet.


And add in the following:

-Spirits of the Rebellion 4-pack with Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia & C-3PO

-Glow in the dark Spirits of the Rebellion chase 4-pack with Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia & C-3PO

-Spirits of the Rebellion Yoda (Entertainment Earth exclusive)

-chase Princess Leia in the series 1 Bust-Ups assortment

-Stormtrooper arm & weapon variations in the series 2 Bust Ups assortment (as many as 6 or 8 combinations)

There is definitely a Bounty Hunter wave, as well as a Clone Trooper wave

This totally has to be based on that incredible catch Moss made last year.  That was one of the most incredible catches I've ever seen!

As for them going for mostly dark jerseys in the NFL line...I really haven't looked into it all that much, but it's possible that they're doing it.  However, I think the Steelers LB they're doing is wearing the white jersey in his regular version.

Middle Earth / Re: LOTR Trilogy Figures

I got the Fell Beast earlier in the week.  I've yet to open it, but the wingspan is supposed to be 32", so it's definitely going to take up a little bit of room.

The new pics look nice.  Galadriel look incredible!  The scene where Frodo offers her the One Ring is totally underrated, and amazingly Toy Biz did something really cool with it.

I like the Gil Galad figure a lot.  Thing is, how long do we even see him in the Prologue?  The shots are pretty quick!

Very cool!  I'll always take a new Wookie, a new Jedi, and I've been hoping for a Sly Moore figure for a while.  I think I might be able to cross some of these off my wishlists now!

I can't believe this news:

Quote
A little surprised that nobody had discovered it yet, the GGS team let it slip early Thursday that there are special chase sets currently mixed in with the some 5,000 Spirit of the Rebellion Bust-Ups allotted for Comic Con. Roughly 500 of the packs currently being sold to winning ticket holders are in fact "glow-in-the-dark" variants. There are no limits to the number of Bust-Up sets fans can buy at the show, but you do need one winning raffle ticket per set. There are no markings on the boxes to indicate which version is inside, the only way to know for sure is to bust them out.

Drat and double drat!

I have the blue Clone Trooper bust up, and it's a little over 2 inches tall.

I saw a Spiderman Classics 2-pack tonight with Spidey and Doc Ock.  Anybody else seen these?

I heard the same thing about the AT-AT some months ago.  It's very surprising though, since Master Replicas also has THEIR AT-AT.  Did someone at Lucasfilm Licensing just have a brainfart in this instance?

I'm definitely going to have extras from wave 1 & 2.  I've got orders on a case of each right now.

I read somewhere an interview (might have been at Scum) about how GG is packaging these sort of like Kubricks.  That was their words and with their size I wonder what market of collector they are going after here

I'm on the fence on these, thought about it but its probably something I'll pass on.  Not really interested too much in SW right now I guess :-\

The cases come with blind packing.  Meaning, that an even number of each character is in each case, with the exception of the chase Leia, but they aren't in packaging that allows you to know what's inside.  After seeing the boxes at Toy Fair.... (see below)



...the packaging does look somewhat like that of the Kubricks line.  I think these boxes are slightly larger though.  The price point is also much better.

Picked up Cooperstown Seaver & Ryan regulars tonight.  They are just SO COOL!  Wish I could've found Reggie & Yogi, but it wasn't meant to be tonight.  They had some of the others in the lineup, and I wanted to pick up Bob Gibson, but I have to save some $ for Wizard World in Chicago.

I also picked up my first NFL 8 piece, Jamal Lewis.  This is definitely a cool series, even if they didn't make a single defensive player in the lineup.

Yeah, the variant is Nolan in the '70's/'80's Astros uni.  What's better is they're doing Reggie in the 70's vintage A's uni!

Padme hasn't turned up in Diamond Previews, so it doesn't appear to be up for pre-order just yet.  It's just as well that it's NOT ready for pre-order, since Gentle Giant has almost flooded the market with product this year.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Vintage OTC Figures
« on: July 22, 2004, 02:56 PM »
As far as prequel figs I'd be all for that...but not at the 100% markup.  I've been asking for new Super Maul, Qui-Gon, Obi-Wans, Anakins and Dookus for a while now (with little support :p)  It's something I want to see happen though


Hey, don't forget that I've been calling for those too.  I think the Jedi and Sith really do need to be presented in a manner much like the VOTC in terms of sculpting and articulation.  If Hasbro would present these ultimate versions, and not something like "Coruscant Chase Obi-Wan & Outlander Obi-Wan & Arena Obi-Wan & Pilot Obi-Wan", I would gladly fork over $10 each to save myself the $20 that four basic versions would cost.

As for the VOTC line, I'd like to see it continue with characters that were part of the vintage line.  The 12 back characters would be a great place to start.
