Huh.

GalacticHunter.com has a picture (slide) from the Hasbro Show.

I like them!  Of course, I can't tell if I like them because they are good figures or I like them because they are the first new basic figures in a while!

Wave 1
Coruscant Wave
Sly
Yarua
Pablo


Excellent!  Bring on the pictures at Wizard World Chicago?  Maybe?


Wave 2
Naboo
Padme Celebration
Rabe


TWO Female characters in one wave?  Both based on TPM?  Both highly-requested fan choices?  Hasbro must definately be trying to make up with us old-school collectors!  (now watch, they'll each be 1per case and short shipped :()


Wave 3
Ccantina Wave
Feltipern Trevagg
Myo
Dannik Jerrico


I would have preferred Bom Vimadin or Hem Dazon instead of Dannik because I prefer ALIENS over HUMAN figures, but I can't complain about the other two choices (Felti and Myo)...


More Tidbits
No Fan Choice until 2006


Well, most of the figures on this list are all-new fan picks anyway!  And not a Han/Luke/Vader in sight so far :)


Clone Wars Animated Wave 3 (Greivous Anakin and Arc Trooper)

I didn't really need any more of these, but I guess I understand why they are doing it with more cartoons coming.


Modular Playsets are being considered but not in the immediate near future.  A Death Star Playset was considered for OTC but scrapped.

Dang.  Wonder why they dumped it?  Cost?


No Versus Packs in the near future but its a good idea
No plans for more George Lucas Figures


Eh.  One Lucas was more than enough.  No need for Jedi Luc Georgeas or anything else like that.


Action Feature WILL be making a Come Back for 2005

No surprise.  They claim kids like them and it is a big movie afer all, lotsa kids will be buying again :(

OTC packaging will be going away and reevaluated in 2006

:(

Ephant Mon was huge price loss, doesn't look good for him making a comeback

No surprise there... they haven't really got a way to do it cheaply.  They missed the chance to stick him in a TRU Jabbas set instead of those old skiff guards.

That's a good question.

I had plans for where each vOTC figure would go in my displays/dioramas (Leia at Yavin 4, Han talking with Jabba, Ben with CT R2 and FB 3PO), but now that they are open and on a shelf together, they look GREAT together.

I have pretty much just changed my mind on this one and now, I'll be leaving them together on a shelf.  I just hope that the further waves (ESB and RoTJ) stick to the scale they established.  It could be as close as we get to having the basic version of each figure in the true scale.

If the upcoming Vader and Chewie look silly/short compared to the rest, I'll probably just change my mind and separate them... but as long as they look good, I'm gonna keep them all together on a shelf!

Soon, Brian, soon you will join us in opening a whole set of vOTC.

Now that you've had a taste of the vOTC goodness, you'll never be able to resist the rest :)

Ohhhhh... it's 4 minutes past the end of the Q&A, why isn't anyone posting any info yet :(
[/Homer Simpson]

Looks like Scum has already posted a little nugget from Hasbro prior to the Q&A regarding the end of OTC... and confirmation of "something" between now and Ep3.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: We Need More Cantina Figures!
« on: July 23, 2004, 03:01 PM »
Hmmm...

Lots of chatter around the net regarding the rumors of a possible third Cantina Set.  The rumors seem to fall into two possibilities:

1 - Set 3 w/Rounded Bar Section and Hammerhead, Djas Purh, and Lak Sivrak?

2 - Set 3 w/Rounded Bar Section and Luke Skywalker, BoShek, and Chewbacca?

I don't know how much stock I put in these as they seem to be more fan-boy rumblings and not based in any fact I can discern, but it'd be pretty lame to have to buy Luke, BoShek and Chewie to get that bar center  >:(

Maybe we'll hear something at the Q&A session?  :-\

I think this guy deserves to be in the Duplex...

He seems to be the only 1:1 scale Lobot figure out there.

Well,

Today's the day for the Hasbro Q&A...

11:30 to 12:30 (in Room 9) - Hasbro will host a Star Wars presentation with a Q&A session.

Think anything good will come out of it?  Anything more yet to be revealed?  Will we find out what's to come after OTC?  Will some putz waste Hasbro's time with a dumb question like: Is it hard to make figures?

I'll start the specululation and say that I hope we get some solid confirmation of the Coruscant wave and plans for the Oct04-Apr05 time frame.  Will there be new stuff or just nothing until the sneak preview stuff?  I'd also like to hear if there are any plans for more vOTC figures...

Just a few more hours until we find out I guess.
