Star Wars Action Figures / Consolidated Customs Threads
« on: September 2, 2005, 12:33 PM »
Hi All,

Since I've had a few requests over the last few weeks, I thought I'd sticky this for a bit.

If you'd like one single thread for all of your custom work (like CHEWIE, Gregorbian, or Master_Phruby have), just let me know (via PM) and I can smoosh all of your older custom threads into one master thread for ya!


Revenge of the Sith / Exclusives Overload?
« on: August 29, 2005, 05:22 PM »
Is it safe to say that 2005 is the year of the Exclusives Overload?

Since these things get spread out over a year, it's easy to lose track of just how many exclusives there are this year.  As near as I can figure so far (thanks to Rob's Hasbro thread), there have been at least 44 exclusive items in the 3.75" scale line this year (maybe more as I/we remember them).

Celebration 3 Darth Vader
Diamond Bounty Hunter 7-Pack
Disney Star Tours 3T-RNE
Disney Star Tours G3-5LE
Disney Star Tours MSE-1T
EE Astromech 5-Pack #1
EE Astromech 5-Pack #2
EE Clone 4-pack - All White, Battle Damage
EE Clone 4-pack - All White, Clean
EE Clone 4-pack - Colors, Battle Damage
EE Clone 4-pack - Colors, Clean
Internet Exclusive Wedge Antilles
KB Toys Silver Vader 9-Pack
K-Mart Emperor Throne Room Battle Pack
K-Mart Jedi Temple Battle Pack
SDCC Holo Leia
StarWarsShop Covert Ops Clone Trooper
Target Boba Fett w/Cup Set
Target Clone Attack Battle Pack
Target Clone Trooper w/Cup Set
Target Darth Vader w/Cup Set
Target Grievous w/Cup Set
Target Han Solo w/Cup Set
Target Lava Darth Vader
Target Mustafar Duel Anakin
Target Mustafar Duel Obi-Wan
Target Obi-Wan w/Cup Set
Target Plo Koon Jedi Starfighter
Target Princess Leia w/Cup Set
Target SA Clone Trooper
Target SA Stealth Trooper
Target Stormtrooper w/Cup Set
Target TIE Fighter
Target Yoda w/Cup Set
TRU Anakin Jedi Starfighter
TRU Holo Emperor
TRU Holo Yoda
TRU Hoth Battle Pack
TRU Obi-Wan Jedi Starfighter
TRU RotS Box Millennium Falcon
Wal-Mart DVD Clone Trooper 3-Pack
Wal-Mart DVD Jedi 3-Pack
Wal-Mart DVD Sith 3-Pack
Wal-Mart Early Bird Kit

And that's only the 3.75" stuff from Hasbro!  It doesn't even count 12" stuff or Titanium Stuff or Target Micro stuff or anything else!    44 exclusive items in the 3.75" scale in one year?  That is approximately $900 plus tax/shipping if you tried to grab one of everything!   :o 

Anyone else think that's just WAAAAAY too much running around to do in a year?

Anyone else worried (like me) that this is a sign of things to come where the retailers demand HUGE lots of exclusive goods?   :-\

Revenge of the Sith / RotS DVD 3-Packs!
« on: August 22, 2005, 04:21 PM »
Not sure who they belong to yet, but If I had to take a guess, I'd say they will be at Wal-Mart for the DVD release, just like the OT and CW sets were...

Yes, folks it's another variant of the 3-Pack Clones, only this time in a fancy box!

The Jedi Set looks like it has the "Battle Arena" Versions...

And yes, a Sith box of repacks as well!

First up, Delva Racine!

From the Official Site:
"Challenging fashion designer Delva Racine may have gone just a bit too far with her latest collection. She's one of the many patrons seen milling about the Galaxies Opera House."

I cannot, I will not, rest until she gets her very own action figure from Revenge of the Sith! 

No one would be better for RotS figure #69 than Delva!

Anyone else have an "awesome" character design that they'd love to see made?


Revenge of the Sith / #56 Mustafar Sentry
« on: August 9, 2005, 10:50 PM »

I picked up this guy tonight and I really, really love him!

He's chocked full of articulation, he has a great base, and I love his weapon.  The only thing that would make him better would be if Hasbro would release a "Mustafar Flea" to go with him!

Anyone else feeling some love for this funky alien figure?

My first deal with John went very smoothly.

He was quick to send payment and easy to deal with.  Thanks again and enjoy your new figures!  :)

This thread is a place for Jeff to talk about how much he likes Green Lantern!

I'll kick it off with this awesome picture of the upcoming Salakk from the DC Direct Green Lantern Series 2!


Stay tuned as I will eventually posts some pictures of my awesome Green Lantern Collection next week!

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,

Darth Vlad bought some some figures from me in a nice easy hassel free transaction!  Thanks again!

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):

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!   :)


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
