30th Anniversary Collection / 30AC Wave 7 - Battle of Endor
« on: May 24, 2007, 01:53 PM »
No thread for this one yet?  Hmmm...

From the front page:

"Wave 7 also makes an appearance and Endor fanatics should love this. A new A-Wing Pilot (Tycho Celchu) w/removable helmet, an Ewok 2-pack (a dark grey-black Ewok and a lighter brown Ewok, both warriors in the new smaller sculpting style), R2-D2 (Endor Feast) with a net and spit for your new Ewoks to carry him on, Spirit of Anakin Skywalker (with Hayden Christansen's likeness), and Conceptual Art Han Solo (with removable headgear)!"

Endor Feast R2 with net and spit = cool beans.  Great piece to complement the Endor 3PO from last year.   :)

Man, I hope one of those Ewoks is Wompus!   :D

30th Anniversary Collection / SDCC McQuarrie Obi-Wan and Yoda
« on: May 15, 2007, 09:13 AM »
OK, let's see where we are at...

Following the news of Yoda and Obi-Wan, that leaves us with just one of the 12 McQuarrie concept carded figures for 2007 to be revealed:

#1 - Stormtrooper (30AC Wave 1)
#2 - Boba Fett (30AC Wave 2)
#3 - Chewbacca (30AC Wave 3)
#4 - Darth Vader (30AC Wave 4)
#5 - Starkiller Hero (30AC Wave 5)
#6 - Snowtrooper (rumored for 30AC Wave 6)
#7 - "Han Solo" (rumored for 30AC Wave 7)
#8 - "Rebel Trooper" (rumored for 30AC Wave 8 )
#9 - C-3PO & R2-D2 (Celebration IV Store)
#10 - Luke Skywalker (HasbroToyShop @ C-IV)
#11 - Obi-Wan Kenobi & Yoda 2-Pack (rumored for a summer convention)
#12 - ?

I guess I'm not sure if Obi-Wan and Yoda are carded together (like 3PO and R2), but all we've heard so far indicate they will be.  I'm starting to wonder if there will be two SDCC figures this year like Celebration IV, one at SWShop and one at Hasbro Toy Shop.  Otherwise, I'm not quite sure where that 12th figure will land...
All bitching about exclusives aside for a moment, this is shaping up to be a very cool sub-line. :)

Watto's Junk Yard / Hasbro to Pay LFL $200 Million in Cash
« on: May 10, 2007, 10:08 AM »
I guess now we know why the price of the figures went up in 2007...  :P

From Hasbro:

Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS) announced today that it has exercised its call option to repurchase all of the outstanding warrants for Hasbro's common stock currently held by Lucasfilm Ltd. and Lucas Licensing Ltd. (together "Lucas").

Lucas holds exercisable warrants (the "Warrants") to purchase an aggregate of 15,750,000 shares of Hasbro's common stock. The call notice to Lucas stated that Hasbro is exercising its call option to repurchase all of the Warrants for $200 million in cash. Upon closing of the call option Lucas will not hold any warrants to purchase shares of Hasbro's common stock. Hasbro anticipates closing the call option on May 24, 2007. In connection with the repurchase, Hasbro will recognize a final mark to market charge related to these warrants totaling approximately $36.5 million during the 2nd quarter of 2007.

Pursuant to the Warrant Amendment Agreement, entered into between Hasbro and Lucas in January of 2003, Hasbro was given a call option which provided that at any time through October 13, 2016, Hasbro could repurchase all of the Warrants from Lucas for a payment, in Hasbro's choice, of either (i) $200 million in cash or (ii) $220 million worth of Hasbro's common stock, such stock being valued in the manner set forth in the Warrant Amendment Agreement.

Other Collectibles / Disney Star Wars Pins
« on: April 26, 2007, 12:31 PM »
Looks like there will be more Star Wars Disney pins this year starting in May...  (thanks to Sharon for the head's up! :))

I don't have any Disney pins, but I might definitely have to track down Emperor Stitch:

That's just too funny to pass up.   :D

30th Anniversary Collection / 30AC Darth Vader's TIE Advanced x1
« on: April 11, 2007, 01:46 PM »

picture courtesy of R2dtoys

Do my eyes decieve me or is this a NEW Vader's TIE?   :o

I don't remember Vader's TIE having "ejecting wings" before.  In that picture, it definitely looks like the cockpit attaches to the wings differently than the older version.  Hmmm...

Here's a picture of the old wings for reference...

Oh, yeah - definitely new wings!   ;D

30th Anniversary Collection / Hasbro 30AC Overload Already?
« on: March 22, 2007, 10:46 AM »
Man, with the amount of crap that's hit the stores in the 2-3 weeks, you'd think there was a movie coming out or something...

- Eight 30AC Basic Figures
- Darth Vader w/Coin Album
- Six Target Order 66 2-packs
- Tantive IV Battle Pack
- Wal-Mart Treachery on Saleucami Battle Pack
- Sith Infiltrator
- V-Wing Starfighter

I'm looking at dropping about $300 to grab the stuff I want from this batch, and that's not even counting the non-3.75" Hasbro stuff...

- 30AC Unleashed Battle Packs Wave 1 (Tantive)
- 2007 Wal-Mart Unleashed Wave
- 30AC Galactic Heroes Wave 2 (Clone Wars, Cantina, Maul)
- 30AC Galactic Heroes Wave 3 (RotJ, Cantina)
- Four 2007 3" Titanium Series Wave 2 Ships (six ships if you count BSG)

Add in the GH figure packs I wanted and I'm up to about $350.

That is a LOT of stuff for a month.  I mean, sure you'll see tons of Spider-Man and Pirates crap this month since both do have movies coming out, but it's looking like there might be just as much new SW stuff in the aisle too...  :-X

I wonder if it's just a repackaging of the old RotS Jedi Vs. Sith Battle Pack?

Other Collectibles / Sideshow Star Wars Diorama Series
« on: February 11, 2007, 12:37 AM »
New line fom Sideshow making it's debut at Toy Fair tomorrow.  Here's the sneak peek at the first one:

Anakin vs. Obi-Wan Diorama

It says they will be in 1:9 scale, which makes them about 7-8", correct?  Makes you wonder if this is why we aren't getting any new Unleashed Figures from Hasbro in 2007...

30th Anniversary Collection / 30AC V-Wing Starfighter
« on: February 11, 2007, 12:00 AM »

Oh yeah, I'm all over this.

Since we don't seem to be getting a V-Wing Pilot figure to go with it, I think I'll use my Cloud Car Pilot to fly this ship since he still doesn't have a ship to fly.   :'(
