Hey Hasbro! / Re: Wedge Antilles
« on: July 21, 2005, 11:35 PM »
Dear Hasbro,

Thank You for changing Wedge. 

Sticking us with the 1997 PotF2 Wedge at this point in the line would be a really dumb thing to do.  I am eternally grateful that you heard the voice of the fans at San Diego Comic Con and did something to make Wedge better.

That new Wedge with the Saga Dutch Vander Body is a 1000% improvement over the 1997 PotF2 Wedge or even the 1999 Cinema Scene Wedge.  Instead of begrudgingly buying my one Wedge to keep my carded collection complete, I'll now be enthusiastically ordering two and anxiously awaiting his arrival this winter!

Thank you for doing something very good.  Please don't screw it up by changing him to something different.   :)

Your Pal,
Jeff

We all heard the rumors before Comic-Con, but Hsbro was silent and playing coy.

Rebelscum however claims to have more info (please take this as purely rumor for now):

Quote
While it's still very early in the development stages, and a lot depends on if retailers are willing to pick it up, here's a list of toys in the works (of the 12 that are planned):

Luke Skywalker / X-Wing Fighter
Darth Vader / TIE Fighter
General Grievous / Wheel Bike
Obi-Wan Kenobi / Jedi Starfighter
Boba Fett / Slave 1
Darth Maul / Sith Infiltrator
Anakin Skywalker / Jedi Starfighter
Snowtrooper / AT-ST
Clone Trooper / ARC-170 Fighter
Emperor Palpatine / Star Destroyer
Jango Fett / Slave 1

If all goes as planned, these should begin appearing early in 2006.



Egad, that sucks!  Isn't Toy Biz trying/tried this with the Marvel figures?   :-\

Figures that transform into vehicles?  Since when was Luke of Anakin a robot?    ::)

If this pans out, there is no way I'll buy these.  No way, no how. 

IMHO, yet another lame ass concept coming from Hasbro - stop trying to force new lines on us and use that development money for NEW 3.75" stuff!   >:(

Saga Collection '06 / Battle of Tatooine Wave
« on: July 17, 2005, 10:51 PM »
OK, first, what Battle happened on Tatooine? 

I remember a droid search and stuff, maybe the Docking Bay Escape?  Eh, anyway...

"Battle of Tatooine from Episode IV will include 7 figures"

I'll guess that the Sandtrooper that was shown is in this wave...  :P

Anyone want to start guessing?

Revenge of the Sith / Hasbro SDCC 2005 QnA
« on: July 15, 2005, 02:38 PM »
Scheduled for today at 3:30pm (local time)...

What do you think we'll hear?  Same old Corporate BS?  Matt goes berzerk?  Only a few more hours to go, so I'll kill the time with wild random speculation (just rumors and speculation, no truth here yet).


Here's my guesses:

1.  Return of OTC in 2006 with 4 AWESOME new figures from a Jabba's Palace Wave... immediately followed by 15 repack figures!  Then Summer 2006, we'll get ane awesome wave of 3Cantina figures... followed by 15 more repaints/repacks!   :P

2.  Titanium Forged line of 3.75" figures - Fett, followed by Vader, Stormie, maybe IG-88.  $15 each but maybe there will be cool dioramas with them (like Attakus only waaay cheaper)?

3.  Matt stands up and throws a chair at Hasbro when they refuses to tell him how they calculated for 500th Vader.

4.  Someone asks them a question about EU and they ignore it (as usual).

Boy, I can't wait to see how close I am!   :)

Jeff

352
Well, time for a thread on this one I guess...



$15 each and due next spring 2006, starting with everyone's favorite Boba Fett.

No thanks, I'm not starting a new 3.75" line at this point...  :-X

Revenge of the Sith / TRU Exclusive Holographic Emperor
« on: July 13, 2005, 02:12 PM »
No, it's not a re-pack of the StarWarsShop figure from last year, it is yet another Holo Emperor figure (because the two we have already are not enough  ::)).

Look for a TRU exclusive Holographic Emperor (based on the Saga 2003 Emperor) at SDCC this week!

Jeff

Thought the Lava Vader from April 2nd sucked?

Get ready to hate on these figures too!

From GH.com:

"Two new Target Exclusive action figures: Lava Reflection Obi-Wan Kenobi (based on the #1 Revenge of the Sith Obi-Wan Kenobi figure) and Lava Reflection Anakin Skywalker (based on the #2 Revenge of the Sith Anakin Skywalker figure). Both come with a new, "hot" Mustafar base, dark paint jobs and orange "lava" reflection deco."

More info at SDCC this week!

Original Trilogy Collection / Carded Wedge, finally!
« on: July 13, 2005, 01:14 PM »
OK, so it's a repack of the Carry Case figure, but I'll finally be able to add Wedge to my carded collection...

Internet Exclusive Wedge Antilles Carded Action Figure w/exclusive Collector Card and Case:



Now available for pre-order at StarWarsShop.com!



But at a $15.99 price?  - ugh.   ::)

Guess I'll just get 1...

I couldn't find a thread, so I guess I better start one!

Just got a quick payment from Travis for some figures he bought from me.  Super-fast payment is always A+ in my book!   ;)

Your figures will be on their way tomorrow!
