Power of the Force 2 / POTF2 Recent Purchases
« on: August 15, 2011, 03:56 PM »
Hello there, as an adult collector I suppose most of you are still buying the potf2 figure you have missed in the late 90s. If you pick them at retail, briantoys, ebay, walmart or wherever you choose, this will be the opportunuty to regitrate our purchases and comment the likes on these potf2 depictions of classic characters.

So I was buying at retail during may and july some characters like

the classic stormie with commtech; at at driver which I liked a lot beacuse his combination of different gray shades for boots, suit, etc is superb and more definite than tlc or saga versions.

On previous years I got Thawn, death star trooper and the Jedi Duel tri pack.

I still want to get more potf2 characters and read about your findings.

Extended Season 4 trailer

1. A guy like Desan working for Dooku. (lizard character)
2. Grieevous still fighting Jedi without telekinesis power.
3. Best depiction of Rex and clones in animated 3D style.
4. Mon  Calamari guys very naif in depiction... fans can appreciate
 more their ondulatory moves on water scenes.

After watching the databank of Barris on galactichunter, I discovered the good job on the rubber cape and hood. It was a concept almost forgiven on Hasbro figures, since the soft good evolved in high quality cloacks.
Dooku was the last guy with plastic or rubber cape, I wonder if this method could pass to new classic Vader and Obi Wan figures, as a variant, or as possibilities for battle packs.

The neck is too long on Barris, when taking a peek one can thing in ballerina proportions, but is far too long. And the head is slightly looking backwards, like the head position of the white bald tvc rebel commando.

Thanks Jedi Iman

I tried to focus on the case concept
to deliberate if some guys would want
to buy this death star folding lids, when the figures are
re released.

I pass this offer, with all respect to people who buy it.

I think the case is curious, innovative, but perhaps not
a practical case like c3po vintage collector one.

As I wrote on another post... I will look for black endor commando, tie pilot and maybe Farlander.

Lando got lots of updates, the robes, scanner, to match sandstorm scene
only I wonder how much Hasbro advanced in the details of his helmet in comparison to the saga version.

This is a Lando for inside palace, Carkoon and sandstorm.

130 $ is an average 10.83 $ per figure

But Hasbro lists single figures at 8.99 on its online shop,
so it woul cost 108 $ in total

The key of the thing is how desirable results the death star lids at 22 dollars
for collectors. Hardly the lids could become a playset, their primary function is to display.

I think the folding Death Star has come to anticipate a new rerelease of the C3PO or Vader collector cases, even this is the first Death Star case (nice), then a spherical one will challenge sculptors´job.

Qui Gon and Obi Wan seem to be re releases of Eopie and tlc young Obi versions. The visible update is Darth Maul and Sidious robes. The sith outfit with their significative layers of clothes.

Hope they bear in mind this Sidious evolution for a classic Palpatine from rotj. ::)

This X wing is not only an update for the FX or Dagobah swamp version but its coolest evolution.
In the last 6 years we are being exposed to the concept of evolution among Hasbro toys, and the ultimate
sculpt does not necessarily implies bigger size than the previous release.

The ship evolved in pieces and accesories: the first dashboard, torpedo launcher and belly compartment, not to mention the amazing paintjob. When many guys talk about display of the UBP, is a respectfully option but the tvc version is intended for playing too. ;)

Luke is perfect!! He comes with an extra belt that comes over the sash, if he had the black glove he could be Luke from Home One briefing room too. I wonder if Hasbro would correct his brown cloak instead of the Jedi robe, but no worries, it a must!
I saw a pic on wookieepedia, Luke training with the green saber wearing jedi outfit and those Ben Kenobi´s Jedi robe.

Leia is retooled guys, at least on face and torso, cause tlc torso was a bit wide, more the ponchos and scarfs from Lando and  Leia are cool  8)

Calamari pilot looks curious and Cracken in a martial actitude.

Hope some day we get a new stormtrooper, following these sculpting evolving patterns.

The first 4-LOM action figure depicting needles on the cheeks (I´d like to see a close up from dvd or blu ray to confirm that detail)

The depiction is very accurate, his body is very C3PO stylished, thin complexure.

Perhaps sandstorm figures will come with softgoods cloak scarfes, tlc Luke from sandstorm was pretty well done, the only update could be the flesh coloured right hand with the blast wound, unless Hasbro retools the Endor Capture Luke to fit this outfit.

The submarine battle showed great improvisation of mini rigs, many like sledges.

Jettser species is an aquatic turtle

Almost all non human in the spot are anphibius, it lacked some gungans.

Seems like they caught some accuracy in the underwater movements of the characters, cause when fighting, the H2O element tends to ralentize or slow action.

This UBP means a welcome evolution on the X Wing

the dashbord in sculpt targeting computer, torpedo launcher, the section for the landing gear,
looks as if the size has been profitted to the milimeter.

Moreover the paint job is superb! ;) The turbines show yellow and grey sections, the wings show more panels painted grey or red.

I supossed they would have launch a bigger X wing, perhaps later, but this ship is far enough for this year.

The diorama remembers the detail of potf2 cantina and Jabba´s palace diorama.
