Original Trilogy Collection / Re: OTC Carry Cases?
« on: July 22, 2004, 09:27 AM »
What is this the 5th or 6th release of this figure?

Sadly... it's more like #7 for Cantina Han.

1 - CommTech carded
2 - 2003 Saga carded
3 - 2004 HoF carded
4 - 2004 OTC carded
5 - Target Figure w/Cup set (wave 2)
6 - Sam' Club OTC Falcon Pack-In
7 - C-3PO Carry Case Pack-In

And we probably haven't seen the last of him either...

:(

Thought I'd go ahead and post this here...



I actually like this one... kinda.

Blue Snaggletooth fits in well with the vintage line theme.  Ben = eh, but I don't mind that one.  Walrus man = ugh.

I hope that K-Mart doens't charge too much for these, but I thnk they are gonna end up around $27 :(

Hmmm...

I like them all.

No surprise there... :)

Now the trick will be getting me to stop at just TWO of those RotJ Stormtroopers.

Original Trilogy Collection / TRU Naboo 4-pack
« on: July 21, 2004, 10:36 PM »
Info coming in from Comic-Con...

Looks like this set will include a kit-bashed Kaduu w/feathery saddle, kitbashed articulated knees Tarpals, Gungan warrior with minor paint changes, PotJ Security Battle Droid in neutral color, and Naboo Royal Guard with minor paint deco changes!

I think I'll have to grab this one for the new Kaduu w/Tarpals and the army-building figures that it offers... repacks I finally agree with!

This just in from Comic-Con!

The Sam's Club exclusive OTC Falcon not only includes the previously mentioned Cantina Han and Mechanic Chewie (ugh), but also includes MMC C-3PO, PotJ Ben, PotJ R2, and CT Luke!

That's 6 figures!

Too bad they are all repacks that I already have...  :-\

Guess I can pass on this one for sure and just pick up the regular version.

Original Trilogy Collection / Coruscant Wave
« on: July 20, 2004, 04:58 PM »
Well,

I thought I'd start a thread here in hopes of seeing these guys at SDCC this week...

The GH Swami and a few others have forseen that the first wave after the 38 OTC repacks will be the Coruscant wave: Pablo Jill (Jedi), Sly Moore (Palpy's Aide), and Senator Yarua (Wookiee Senator).

I think that, perhaps, the forthcoming Coruscant wave may have accidently been confirmed, as reports are coming in that the latest issue of the SW Insider has this to say:

"since we never saw Sly's hands in Episode II, Hasbro was set to give her birdlike talons in an exercise of creative license. However, this was nicked just in case her hands are visible in Episode III."

Hmmm...

Let's hope we find out more from SDCC!

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Episode III Title?
« on: July 20, 2004, 03:47 PM »

"Attack of the Clones" was announced as the title for Episode 2 on August 6th, 2001 (about 9 months ahead of time).

I wouldn't look for an offical title until late summer of this year...  but it never hurts to speculate :)

:)

Back down to $1.69 today after hovering around $1.79-1.89 most of early July.  I guess I'll have to hit the station on the way home tonight...

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: "George Lucas to direct Indy IV"

Hmmm....

Lots of reports coming in that this thing is indefinately on hold due to some differences in the script again.

Sounds like everybody involved liked the Indy 4 script except Georgie, who after thinking on it, decided that he wants a better/faster/action-filled ending...  Maybe Indy 4 needs a Pod Car Race?   ::)
