Saga Collection '06 / Re: Battle of Tatooine Wave
« on: October 24, 2005, 08:52 PM »
I do realize that the R5D2 isn't an accurate version of R5D4... I guess for whatever reason, R5D4 just isn't too important of a character to me, and I'm just happy with the Star Tours one.  Kinda weird I guess... but I love that figure.

 :P

Don't get me wrong, R5-D2 is a pretty cool little figure, and I wouldn't mind gettin one myself, but he's different enough from D4 for me to tell the difference. And R5-D4 not an important character? Despite his few seconds of screen time, R5-D4 is probably one of the most pivitol characters in the SW Universe. Were it not for that bad motivator, he'd have been purchased by Luke and Owen. R2 ould be loaded back onto the sandcrawler and captured by the Imperials, causing the rebels to never recieve the secret plans, ushering in a new reign of terror for the empire with thier indestructable new weapon. Luke never would have run into Obi Wan, who in turn would never run into Solo and Chewbacca, who would never end up in the death star to rescue Leia, who would be killed by the empire. But because of the noble R5-D4, blowing his own motivator to keep R2 and 3PO together, the galaxy was saved. R5 should have been at the end of Jedi in spirit form instead of Anakin. I guess the point I'm trying to make is R5-D4 deserves a well done, accuratley sculpted figure.

As for the Luke/Han repacks, I understand the reasoning behind them, and if it were VOTC versions instead of somthing more outdated then I'm all for it. It'd be even better if they included some cool assesory to persuade those of us who already have one to get another. Like maybe a cantina table. I'd buy ten Cantina Hans if he came with a cantina table.

Don't forget abot the antena on his dome. R5-D4 has been in demand for so long, that they have to get it right. On another note, regarding the sandtrooper. This figure would be so much better if they added some wrist articulation so he can hold his rifle with both hands. It's kind of annoying to have an army with such limited poses.

Cantina Scuffle

Bannis Keeg(kitbash from the other Duro)
Saurin(kitbash from the Saga bossk)
Obi Wan Kenobi(OTC spirit repaint)
Cantina Band Member(give him new legs with articulated knees)
Jawa(commtech with OTC style paintjob)

Any way or excuse to get some new cantina stuff is good with me. I'd bite on that Tusken set too.

Yknow, rather than re releasing Luke or Han again, they should repack the cantina band member, maybe give him some new articulated knees.

Chief Chirpa - Bout time. I don't really have an opinion on the Ewoks one way or another, but I'll probably pick this guy up.

Moff jerrjerod - Dunno, maybe. I'll have to see him first.

Death Star Gunner - This one might be cool, especially if he's got the SA treatment.

There's way too many repacks in this wave though by the sounds of it. We'll have to see where this goes, hopefully there'll be another new one in there somewhere.

Firefighter - Might be cool.

Cody - An obvious choice. Make sure he's nicely articulated and I'll buy.

Dofine - Meh.

Talz Jedi - Sweet! I didn't think they would have actually gone through with this but I'd hoped they would. I'm half expecting it to be Muftak with a cloth jedi robe, but here's hoping Hasbro makes him from scratch.

I wasn't expecting much from this wave, but Graga and a Podracer 2 pack sounds great. Hopefully they'll give us a good pair of racers, though I'm half expecting one of them to be Ben Quadrinaros or whatever his name is.

Aside from Sora Bulq, nothing here interests me terribly. I may go for the Commando, if he's done well. It's a shame though, I like many, was hoping for a SA Jango and Windu. Oh well, maybe some day.

I was planning on passing on this wave entierly since I'm mostly an alien collector, but actually seeing the pictures and selection has changed my mind completely. The most pleasant surprise has to be that Gonk Power Droid. I love the look of that thing. This is a great way to rerelease an exsisting figure and make it interesting and new. Derlin is looking good, the detail is great. I'm looking forward to seeing Veers armorless, and wether or not he has his regular hat. He's definatly looking good though. The AT-At driver is also quite cool looking and I'll definatly be picking one up.

I do have some concerns about the repacks though. I understand Hasbros reasoning for them but they really seem to be too plentiful to me. And the choices for some of these repacks just seems foolish, mostly in regards to Reikaan. Main characters i can understand but rereleasing less important and obscure characters just seems foolish, especially ones that warmed the pegs previously, and at least then you got the display screen with him.

Hem Dazon - #1 on my most wanted list. I really hope this guy pans out, and am curious to see what they'll do to him from the neck down.

R5-D4 - My #2! And it's about time too. Hopefully we'll se a couple variations downm the road. Oh and please don't screw him up again Hasbro.

Hammerhead - Not really seeing the point of this guy, I thought the POTF Hammerhead held up pretty well. Would have been nice to have seen somthing else that hasn't been done before, like Bom Vimdin or Elis Helrot or somthing. Oh well, give him some knee articulation and a great sculpt and I may buy.

Garindan - I guess it depends on how much better he is than hid POTF counterpart. Original Garindan wasn't too bad. I'll probably bite though, especially if he's as well sculpted as the guys from the hoth wave.

As for the Tonnikas, wasn't the rumor that they would be coming along with the rounded end of the bar or somthing? Have to wait and see, we still havn't got any news on the deluxe or screen scene front, if there will be any at all.

Nice. I had a good feeling about this one from the first pics we saw of him. I wouldn't have minded a little paint weathering on his outfit though, but I'm just being nitpicky. I'll have to pick this one up.

This one had me pretty excited. I've been wating for them to put out somthing like this for a while now. I'd like to say I won't buy it if it's too expensive, but I know I'll cave. I'm a sucker for astro droids. As for R5, I tend to agree with Darth Broem, they're probably trying to build up demand for him, though I'm really hoping we'll finnaly get him in '06. Who knows maybe they'll release an all R5 repaint 5 pack after that.

An undercover rebel operative has posted a large reward for any information linking Imperials with an attack on a Jawa Sandcrawler . Hem Dazon and Bom Vimdin respond and begin to salvage the wreckage. They come upon a pair of damaged droids, designations R5-D4 and CZ-3. Both droids confirm that it was indeed stormtroopers that attacked and destroyed the crawler. After a quick repair job, Dazon and Vimdin prepare to bring the droids to the rebel spy when Sandtroopers attack! The group barley escapes, and spreads the word that imperials are attacking bounty hunters. Outrage ensues and they rise to arms to get the Stormtrooper occupation out of Mos Eisly. And thus, the epic battle of Tatooine begins....

New Sculpts

Hem Dazon
Bom Vimdin
R5-D4
DZ-3

Repacks/Kitbashes
Bannis Keeg (Based on POTJ Duros)
Saurin (Based on Bossk)
Sandtrooper (POTJ)

A guy can dream right? :P

Thanks for the welcome! :) The Gunray would be the War Room version, prefferably with new paint ops.
