As for Wave 4, you screwed the pooch on that one too.  Wave 4 should've just been 8x Stormtrooper.  Duh!

Nah, wave 4 is for the Targets, TRUs, and Wal-Marts to get what they want... gotta keep them happy too.

If I were in charge over at Hasbro, I'd crank out a sweet 4-pack of vOTC Stormtroopers which I'd release at Holiday time (November) as an on-line exclusive:  4x vOTC Stormie for $30 in a nice white mailer box.

Those EE case assortments are pretty accurate.

Wave 1.5 shipped first from E-tailers, but now some e-tailers like NewForce and EE are shipping wave 1.  Also, wave 1 cases have turned up at KB and a few other retailers so Luke is trickling out.


I still think they should have done FOUR cases as follows:

Wave 1
2x Han, Ben, Luke, Leia

Wave 2
2x Vader, Yoda, 3PO, Lando

Wave 3
2x Fett, Stormie, R2, Chewie

Wave 4
1x Han, Chewie, Luke, Ben, Yoda, Vader, Stormie, Fett

I think that would have been just fine... get out equal amounts of the figures, then one last push of the main characters to capture any DVD rush that happens to pop up.

Dang, why aren't I in charge of Hasbro's case packs? :(

I agree on Boushh.

The sculpting process has come a loooong way since '96 and it'd be cool to see an updated version!

I'd like to see her come with a removable helmet (obviously), Staff, Thermal Detonator (not sculpted into her hand), and perhaps with an updated Carbonite block?

That's be a resculpt I wouldn't mind... in fact, maybe we do need a GOOD Hybernation Sickness Carbonite Han too.

I'm working on a shelf in the Star Wars Room that I call...

"Star Wars Wasteland"

I've got the little bar peices from the WM Cantina wave 1 there, along with all the figures that I have no use for anymore: Leia Collection figures, PotF2 Fett, PotF2 Lobot, CT Greedo, PotF2 Ponda, PotF2 Gen. Lando, Hoth Luke, etc.

Eventually, there will be 6 more bar peices there (from box 1 and 2), so there'll be plenty more drinkin space for the soon to be replaced CT Wuher, PotF2 Dr. Evazan, Cantina Ponda Baba, Cantina Obi-Wan, and more I'm sure.  

They all hang out in this little bar, drinking away the misery of having been replaced by a superior version, knowing that they are no longer loved.  Granted, they'll always have a place in my heart, but what's done is done and I've moved on.  At least they have each other for support...

This is what I like to see...

Big White Sox miscue helps lead to huge Twins sweep

3.5 game lead, now turn it on (with or without Benson) and don't look back!

Here's a shot of my Cantina the way it is currently set-up...



See my Baniss Keeg figure over in the customs section!

Star Wars Action Figures / Jeff's Custom Figures - Updated 6/7

Well,

I finally got off my lazy butt and decided to take some pictures of my 150+ custom figures to share with you guys.

First Up -

Baniss Keeg:
NEW PIC COMING SOON

My recipe is very similar to some of the FFURG ones I've seen, but not quite the same:
Duros - head, hands, and boots.
FF BSH Helmet Luke - Torso, legs, arms
lotsa painting

I really like the way he turned out!  I think he is my favorite custom figure.   :)

Ours are taller, good to -70 C and all white.  Better for hunting polar bears.  Eh.  

Like this?



I hear a lot of Winnipeg guys wear these on their Polar Bear hunts...

Don't worry, the Dodgers will crap out at the end of the year for one reason only... from page 1 of this thread:

I, too, am a crappy division-winner chooser, but it never stops me from trying...

AL East: New York Yankees
AL Central:  Minnesota Twins
AL West: Oakland A's
AL Wild Card: Toronto Blue Jays

NL East: Atlanta Braves
NL Central: Chicago Cubs
NL West: LA Dodgers
NL Wild Card: Houston Astros

You're doomed.

Nice.

Great Job, SWShop.com!   >:(

I guess I got my answer on whether I am going to try to order the Holo-Emperor exclusive for my MOMC collection!

WHERE ARE THE FLIP-FLOPS?!?!?! :-\

I picture Virex ripping open the box, sliding into his new flip-flops, and dashing outside to try them out!  He must be running through the yard right now yelling "WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" as he puts them through the first work-out.

After all, no review would be complete without a breakdown of comfort level whilst walking and running in them.  That must be the reason for the delay.

Dang!  OTC has finally hit Target, and it looks like it's gonna hit hard!  I found the following today:

OTC 12" Fett (gray), Stormtrooper, Luke
OTC Lightsabers (electronic and basic)
OTC X-Wing ($20)
OTC TIE Fighter ($20)
OTC Falcon ($50)
vOTC Han, Leia, Ben ($10)
OTC Bespin Wave ($5)
Unleashed Leia ($15)
Unleashed Obi-Wan ($15)
and, tucked around the aisle, the Galactic Heroes Falcon ($30)

I grabbed myself a new Falcon and left the rest!

At least 1/2 the aisle was packed with the OTC stuff and it looked GREAT.  They (Target) reset with all new GI Joe, Batman Animated, JL Unlimited stuff too.  I'd say watch for all Targets to reset the aisle soon!

Showoff.  ::)

Now I'm definately gonna try to trow up some pictures of my various custom figures tonight...

Jeff

Yeah... I did that.   :-*

I used two cheap clearance Bossks from the PotF2 green card blowouts to craft my two custom Saurin.  One, I did just what you said Scott, I used a Ponda Baba body and painted him (black pants, ugly green/yellow jacket like in the picture.  

The second, to be a bit different, I used a Ep1 Rune Haako for the body and painted up the robes.  This gave the second one a different look, with a bit of a difference in height and head position.

BUT, I'd still like an official Hasbro version though.

Jeff

ps.
I really should get off my lazy ass and finaly take some snap shots of my custom figures now that I have a digital Camera...  maybe I'll do that tonight with a feature on my Cantina Customs?

TWO Saurin were in the Mos Eisley Cantina, Sai'torr and Hrchek Kal Fas:



I agree, they are very cool aliens and different enough from Bossk to warrant a figure.
