Saga '02-'04 / Re: Favorite Geonosian???
« on: May 22, 2003, 09:03 AM »
 Why's the Clone Wars line getting such kick-@$$ attention to articulation and detail?  WOW!

I think the reason the Clone Wars line gets more attention to detail than the launch of the SAGA line is because of one word:  VOLUME.  A boatload of stuff came out with the launch of the SAGA line.  And with that boatload, it must've taken a lot of time and manpower to get it all ready for market.  I get the feeling that the reason why some of the initial SAGA offerings can be viewed as flawed is because there were too many items to get ready for April 23rd of last year.

On the other hand, there are less offerings for The Clone Wars launch than the SAGA launch.  This leads me to believe that Hasbro was better able to pay attention to detail in this new line.

The blue is definitely a mystery.  I've got the Executor, but I had no idea just how rare it is!  

I also wish they hadn't cancelled this line before the Mon Calamari cruiser came out.

I'm curious if this includes the homestead or not.

I worked very briefly for the WWE.  I had been a fan of the programming leading up to that, but I got disenchanted with the company.  I left shortly after I arrived, and decided I liked working in news better.

I count myself lucky that I've got a couple of friends who collect Sports Picks and we look out for each other.  But it's really gotten dog-eat-dog in the world of Sports Picks.  The guys who used to collect Starting Lineup are fully into it now, and more people have gotten into it, too.  This line has definitely become a favorite of eBay scalpers.

I'm lucky enough to be close to one of the events where McFarlane's going to have some exclusives.  I missed out on the Super Bowl set.  But, I should be able to get the set that's going to be available in Atlantic City.  Forget about the sets that are going to be in Chicago or at the Football Hall of Fame.

Hasbro may actually be releasing up to five different versions with a white, yellow, red, blue and green version.

Skittles!  Taste the rainbow...   8)


If this proves true, I guess that's pretty cool.  Almost seems like overload a little, especially when some of these colored Clones weren't exactly the grunt guys doing all the shooting in the actual battle(s).  But oh well.  Fine by me!  The more the merrier...

And if Hasbro is indeed giving such incredibly diversified treatment to the Clonetrooper army here, that should hopefully be a positive sign that we can expect bigger and better things for the rest of our "armies" as well...  Hopefully...

I don't know why, but that statement from Rebelscum sounds more like speculation than confirmation from a source.

I'm still searching for a variant Vick and a regular Urlacher.  Forget about a variant of him.  It's positively ridiculous!

Nice collection Wai!  I'm definitely envious of a couple you've got.  Samuel L. Jackson and Frank Oz are major scores!

Did he cite a source?  The one at the Jawa said "according to Hasbro".

Really?  I've got 6 Sehorns!  Two variants, and a couple each of the sock variants.

Just added Jerry Seinfeld Comedian to the collection.  Hope it's good.

Yep, the baseball figures suck, as far as demand is concerned. I too am stuck with 2 baseball variants. But the good thing about collecting the baseball figs, those are real easy to find. There is only 1 out of all the series to date that I couldn't find in a store. And I can thank Brent for getting me that one.  ;D  That Hinske fig still has not shown up around here anywhere.

Hinske is shortpacked, one per case.  The previous rookie of the year that they made, Pujols, wound up warming pegs.  So I guess they decided to shortpack Hinske.

So did you preorder based on the post I put up, OCB?  If so, glad I could be of assistance.

That's what I thought when I saw the cardback that surfaced a couple of days ago.  I guess I'm still unsure if this is merely a sample, or an actual production item.  

I'd really like the Clone Commander.  I'm sure we'll get one at some point, but I was hoping this pack would include one.

It looks like the Clone Commander that was shown at Hasbro's media event has flown the coop!  Perhaps we'll get a single carded version?
