Well, they did finally get around to getting the Geonosian detention device out.  Albeit, with figures we already have.  The only glimmer of hope is the Nikto Jedi, who's barely different at all.

This is a long standing problem with a lot of retail chains.  The SKU #'s on all of these assorments are the same.  They're  just known as Collection 1 & Collection 2.  That makes it impossible for managers to order individual assortments at the retail level.

Next question....

What actor had a role in both Superman 2 and The Phantom Menace, and what were his roles?

Planet Action Figure has the Starspeeder 3000.  It's $35, but might be worth it to some.  Here's the listing page:

I think both retailers and Hasbro share the blame.  Retailers for ordering so outlandishly, and Hasbro for willingly filling those orders.  They could cap production.  Toy companies are famous for it.  They have a bottom line, though, and the money they make selling these to TRU, Wal Mart and the like outstrips the money they spend picking up all the pegwarmers.

Capping production is a very worthwhile thing for Hasbro to look into.  I'm pretty sure Playmates did that with the Simpsons, and I think it kept retailers from flooding the stores with too much of any particular item.

Actually, yeah.  I do look pretty hard at paintjobs.  Provided I've got a choice of figures.  I'll compare for a little while.  I spent quite a few minutes trying to pick out the Obi-Wan Kenobi-Acklay Battle I was going to get for myself, and the ones I was going to trade to my friends (sorry guys!).

ANH- Vader, Stormtrooper and Antilles

That would be so sweet!  With Antilles hanging in the air by Darth Vader's grip.  Awesome!

You gotta figure (no pun intended!) that with Captain Antilles coming out next year, there very well could be a Darth Vader coming out to choke him out!  Can you say "Throttling" Vader?

Well, I'm at several boards.  I've got user-id's a few.  Mostly, I'm known as Nicklab, but with a few exceptions at certain boards.

-here, of course
-SSG ( I think I posted there all of one time.  ICK!  I don't like it there! )
-The forums
-and my absolute favorite, a local collecting club that I help run (sorry, local is close to my heart)

Well, count yourself lucky you got him at WalMart.  A lot of a SP collector's time is spent at places like EB and Gamestop, and they routinely charge $11.99 or $12.99 for Sports Picks.  $9.99 or so is a bargain in this line.  Especially if you can find a variant.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Luke and Darth: A New Hope...What are they?
« on: May 29, 2003, 04:09 PM »
Nataku brings up an interesting point.  These could very easily just be the C1 ROTJ Luke and Vader.  That would make as much sense as repacking older figures, since the window of availability for both those figures seems kind of short.

In the retailer lists I've seen with this Luke & Vader, they're collection 2.  It would be odd if they released a figure or two in both collections.

EDIT:  found an EE case listing with these figures.  It's a Collection 2 case:

Cool Jedi choices, Spuffy.  I think Rotha Del Masona would even be cool as a basic figure.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Cantina Wave 2 Sets a No Go

I preordered a set through Amoktime yesterday.  I called in, since I was making an order for me and two friends.  I was hoping to get something of a quantity discount.  However, they weren't able to do that.

The guy at Amoktime told me that they've gotten a small shipment of Cantina wave 2 so far.  However, their current order has been pushed back numerous times.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they're going to be able to fill the order.

I agree, the Tonnika sisters are doomed.  I think Garga and Quinlon Vos both have decent chances, eventually.

How true.  You throw in likeness rights, and possibly the inability to find the actresses (does anyone really know where to find these women?), and it seems like a hopeless cause.  And throw on top of that the unsavory nickname they had, and I think we definitely won't be seeing the Tonnika sisters.
