Saga '02-'04 / Re: Isnt it time for a Resculpt of Ben Kenobi OT
« on: August 19, 2003, 03:20 PM »
I thought that the POTJ Ben Kenobi was pretty good.  And that only came out about 2+ years ago?  It's one of my favorites from the POTJ line.  There was also Ben from the 25th Anniversary 2-pack.  That was definitely an upgrade from the POTF2 Flashback figure.

As for how they could improve it....

Make a similar figure to the POTJ version, but with softgoods from the waist down.  Then, also give him the Jedi robes, also in softgoods.  The one that came with the SAGA Obi-Wan pilot is pretty good, so that's a starting point.

Then, package him as a Deluxe figure with the Death Star's Tractor Beam control station.  That would be a Ben Kenobi I'd be very pleased to see, and would be happy to buy.

And finally...give him his own lightsaber hilt.  My one and only gripe with the POTJ Ben is that he had Luke's lightsaber hilt attached to his belt, not his own.

No, it wasn't scrapped.  They just haven't released any images of  it yet.  They announced that set months ago, and until we hear otherwise, Gannon and Brooks will be on the way probably around November or December.

The current box set that's out is Favre and Urlacher.  The next one, to be released next month, is McCaffrey and Thomas (who's based on Anthony Thomas, fyi).  

Gannon and Brooks will probably be released around the time that NFL7 is hitting stores.  After that, expect the announcement for the Super Bowl exclusives!  My money is that they'll offer an Oiler's Eddie George and a Texan's Aaron Glenn.

I just wish that McFarlane had made at least one set of Team USA.  I thought the Team Canada series was really cool, But, we came in second in the Olympics to Canada, and there were already several players from Team USA who were in the Sports Picks line.  Where's the love for US Hockey?

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Bounty Hunter Pack: Have You Found It?
« on: August 19, 2003, 10:58 AM »
Haven't seen it at retail yet.  Key word is YET.  I DID see it in Chicago at WWC, but they wanted $40 for it.  I wasn't about to pay double retail just to get it a couple of weeks early.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Anyone want an Amanaman on a SAGA card?
« on: August 19, 2003, 10:56 AM »
The POTJ Deluxe Amanaman is still readily available around here.  AND on clearance, for the most part.  I see no good reason to put it out again.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Emperor, Faytonni, WA-7, Vader and Luke
« on: August 19, 2003, 10:54 AM »
I GOTTA score a Faytonni, and soon!  I gotta get him in time for a show that's coming up here in September.  Anthony Daniels is going to be there, and I'd really like to get him to sign one of these, as well as a "Purchase Of The Droids" cinema scene that I had Phil Brown sign.  Anthony jsut doesn't make that many appearances on the autograph circuit now.

Other Toy Lines / Re: McFarlane Led Zeppelin & Jimi Hendrix
« on: August 19, 2003, 10:48 AM »
Jimi looks cool!  Too bad they didn't finish his paintjob.  That's the reason for the shodowy lighting.

Now I'm REALLY curious to see how Led Zeppelin comes out.  Just having Bonzo and Jonesy is gonna be awesome.  I don't care as much about Page and Plant.

No need to fear.  NHL5 was the only Canadian exclusive SERIES they've done.  There have been a couple of other Canadian exclusives, like 2 2-packs, and the Team Canada 3-packs.  The stuff that's just been unveiled will be available all across North America.

The Batman I got in Chicago is the same scale as the new versions that Mattel has just put out.  Think of the zipline Batman, but in the classic gray and blue outfit.

I actually have the EPISODE I  Jabba glob on the vintage throne.  It looks pretty cool like that.

I got the Batman exclusive at Wizard World in Chicago.  Got it signed by the 4 Horsemen, too.  Strangely, though, I don't collect Batman.  Impulse buy on my part.

A couple of my friends have found Eowyn, but she was packed one to a case.  I also found a lone Treebeard, as well as some Smeagols and Gollums.  So far, he's what I've seen personally:

Frodo
Sam
Eomer
Gollum
Smeagol
Treebeard

...and that's it.  Haven't seen Eowyn, or any of the horse and rider sets yet.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: How are you feeling?
« on: August 17, 2003, 05:33 PM »
There's still some ground left to cover in the Original Trilogy, but yes, it does seem more geared towards improvements.  There are very few things that haven't been done that need to be touched on in some form or another.  

The prequel trilogy has a lot of ground that can be covered in the toy lines.  EPISODE I alone has a lot to offer in that area.  Just look at the podrace, and you've got a bunch of vehicles, and a bunch of aliens to pick from.  The same holds true with the Coruscant Nightclub in EPISODE II.

As for how things will carry over following 2005?  I don't know.  We'll have to wait and see.  If Hasbro can continue to put forth some good ideas, then maybe I'll stay interested.  A lot also depends upon what good old GL has in store for fans.
