It seems that some folks are needlessly using some of their choices on figures that have already been confirmed or are not quite possible.  The following are on the way this year:

-Bail Organa
-Clone Trooper (yellow) in the Clone Trooper 3-Pack
-San Hill in the Geonosian War Room Screen Scene
-Poggle The Lesser in the Geonosian War Room Screen Scene
-FLO Waitress droid (actually called WA-7 droid)

Also, regarding R4-P17, this astromech is actually built into Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Starfighter.  So there's nothing more to this plucky astromech other than his dome and attachments to the hull of the starfighter.

This wasn't really news.  It's been reported here: in March, and more recently here:, and it's this news story:

"Cantina Scene Update  
Some of you might recall my earlier article on the second wave of Cantina Scenes. If not, check it out here.

I've been following up on this story with another Hasbro source. They have stated emphatically that wave 2 of the Cantina sets were never officially confirmed by Hasbro, and they are not scheduled for the 2003 toy line.

A lot of times, when cartons get crushed, it's the guys in the truck that are responsible.  When I used to work at a loading dock, I saw more than my fair share of truckers stand on cartons to get to stuff that's high-up in the truck.  I guess they're unaware.  Should we petition the teamsters, LOL?

I haven't opened a case in a while.  Are they still putting the tissue paper in between each card/bubble?

I'm so glad I don't collect figures to keep carded anymore.  This is one headache I don't miss.

Here are mine....

Sly Moore-Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's Aide
Padme Amidala-Senator (Palpatine's office garb)

Joclad Danva
Bultar Swan

Nute Gunray-Geonosis
Shu Mai

Clone Trooper-Sergeant
Clone Trooper-Lieutenant
Clone Trooper-Cafeteria garb, no armor

Cliegg LArs with hoverchair

Well, I batted .500 on that one!  Kinda cool, I guess.

Has anyone noticed a trend with almost every Chewbacca that's come out in the past 2 years or so?  With the exception of the 25th Anniversary 2-pack, we haven't gotten one with a properly done bowcaster.

-The Mynock Hunt has an action-feature bowcaster
-The POTJ Mechanic comes only with goggles & wedling tool
-The POTJ Dejarik Champion comes with Dejarik table only
-The SAGA Bespin Escape comes with an Imperial Blaster, cargo net, and blasted C-3PO


Power of the Jedi / Re: Force Files

Well, what Hasbro was trying to do with the force files was to add some value to the overall figure.  Before that, the value-added item had been the Commtech chip.  In fact, there's a litany of little value added things that Hasbro has tried.

But I think the overiding issue that you can find with those last three waves of POTJ is this:  they were probably THE BEST figures that were done in the entire line.  To me, that makes up for the absence of the force files.

The later items, mainly the last three waves lost the force files.  Most people seem to regard these as  a transition towards the SAGA line.  

The force files seemed to get a not so great reception.  The consensus among most collectors seemed to be "give us more accessories, not more paper".

For me?  Hands down, FX-7

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: New Clone Wars Anakin & Durge
« on: March 29, 2003, 02:42 PM »
Well, having read the new Dark Horse Star Wars:  Republic title where Durge makes his premier, he seems like the bad guy you love to hate.  And definitely mean!  The way they've drawn him makes his armor look somewhat Samurai-like.  Reminds me of the Silver Samurai, of X-Men and Wolverine fame.

POTJ was definitely one of my favorite lines.  Nary a stinker in the bunch.  As for the toughies?

-Masters of the Dark Side  2-pack

-Scout Trooper-Imperial Patrol (clean)
-Sandtrooper-Tatooine Patrol
-Scout Trooper-Imperial Patrol (dirty)
-IG-88, as JediMAC mentioned, has become kind of scarce
-Han Solo-Bespin Capture (one of my favorites!) hasn't been hanging around all that much.  You can probably get one reasonably
-R4-M9 (this wave in general was tough to score)

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Will '03 see transition cards?
« on: March 29, 2003, 02:28 PM »
Actually, it seems that we're getting transition cards right now.  The SAGA card has definitely changed for this year, and it seems to me that they'll be very shortlived since we're going to the Clone Wars packaging and new SAGA style packaging that was shown at the media event.

Despite the fact they look good (with exception to San Hill), in the back of my mind I've got the itchy feeling I'll never see any of them on shelves...

Anyway, I must say, the best looking figure of them all, in my opinion, is Yaddle. Perfect face sculpt. Mace's plastic top and fabric bottom looks odd, anyone else notice that?

Question = think the Jedi will come w/ sabers?

Uhh, don't you mean Even Piell?  Yaddle's not in the set.  And the Jedi do not come with lightsabers, FYI.
