Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Vintage OTC Figures

I also have faith that we'll get a "living" version of the Dagobah Spirit Ben to cover my plastic cloak/hood down Ben needs, so that may be helping improve my opinion on the VOTC one.


Uh... no one has addressed my post over in the Dagobah thread yet, so I'll go ahead and post it here in hopes of getting your opinion Jared...

Forgive my ignorance, but I've got a question for you guys...

I've been vocal in my desire to get an Non-Spirit Ben figure, but I may already have one, for it seems that Spirit Ben Kenobi (Dagobah) is... a kitbashed/rehash.

While goofing around with Ben last night, I discovered that the date stamp on his foot reads "2000", and to top it off he has a little tiny hole in his belt just like the PotJ Ben does.  After comparing for a bit, I feel I can sefely say that Spirit Ben's legs, lower body, and torso are all identical to the PotJ version!  

I think that his head may be recycled from the old Lays Spirit Obi-Wan as well.  As near as I can tell, only the arms and cloak are new... but that may be only because we havn't figured out where they came from yet. :(


So, is he kitbashed?  Or am I just crazy?

"Real" fur or plastic fur?

Another week and still no signs of vOTC 3PO feature at Hasbro's site...

*sigh*

The articulation mystery continues.

Reports are coming in that the Silver Vader 2 is already in the TRU computer system for this fall...

Should be the same gimmick as R2 and the Clone Trooper, buy x amount of SW swag and get a free figure.

Yep, 5 months in prison and $30,000 fine, and then another 5 months of home confinement along with 2 years supervised probation after she gets out of the "big house"...

Martha gets five months

Hehe.

Looks like a valid re-paint/rehash of the DS Droid to me.

Too bad we couldn't get another Droid (R5-D4) and the CT Jawa along with him instead of the Jawa 2-pack.

That set is/was exclusive to the Official SW Convention of Mexico...

Info on the Two-Pack

The convention starts today I think, and that set will set you back 250 pesos (approx $25 USD), IF you can find someone in Mexico to nab you one... ;)

It is not known if it will be released anywhere else, but there were some rumors that it may end up at StarWarsShop.com in the fall, but this is not confirmed.

Thanks for the update Matt!

I'd be willing to pitch in a few bucks for Patty to tag along and grab me a Silver Sandtrooper... I'd like one of those too, but I understand about the exclusive SW stuff being in higher demand ;)

Thanks!

Only two more weeks until training camp.

My dad picked up a few tickets the other day at work, so it looks like we'll be headed to see the Vikes and the Chiefs Practice Scrimmage in August...

Wonder how the Purple will fair having made no major changes in the Defense other than a couple draft picks and a new Def Coordinator... :(  

Still time to work something out though.  A few goofy Free Agents left out there to sign during camp, right?

Huh?

Uh....

Hmrph.

I don't know what to say... thanks to a TRU snafu that delayed the Clone Trooper til this spring, we could end up with THREE of these lame Silver figures this year (Clone, Sandtrooper, Vader).    >:(

I'd bet too that he'll be a TRU exclusive just like most of the others since the bubble sticker looks like all the other TRU ones.  Of course, because I have no power to resist, I'll end up with one of these Silver Vaders, but Arg!  Enough already!

I need Luke too... and have plenty of Leia cups to spare.

Maybe we could work out a Leia for Luke cup set swap?

Looks like the ORIGINAL PotF2 Emperor cast as a hologram.

At least it's not the holo-sidious version from Ep1 like I thought  :-[

I'll probably end up getting this one if I can find a Hyperspace stoolie to order me one...
