Original Trilogy Collection / Re: 2005 Cantina Wave
« on: October 14, 2004, 09:57 AM »
From the EE site:

Description: 
Star Wars - Post Original Trilogy Collection 3 3/4 inch Basic Action Figure Assortment Wave 2. Includes all-new vintage-style packaging that resembles the original line of Kenner Star Wars action figures. These are NOT in Original Trilogy Collection packaging. All figures are in new "Post" Original Trilogy Collection packaging. Contains 12 individually packaged action figures including 2x Feltipern Trevagg (NEW), 2x Myo (NEW), 2x Dannik Jerriko (NEW), 1x Sandtrooper - Tatooine Search (Older figure, slightly repainted, new packaging), 1x Stormtrooper - Death Star Attack (Same figure as OTC #16, but with new packaging), 1x Scout Trooper - Endor Raid (Same figure as OTC #11, but with new packaging), 1x Han Solo - Mos Eisley Escape (Same figure as OTC #7, but with new packaging), 1x Chewbacca - Hoth Escape (Same figure as OTC #8, but with new packaging), and 1x Yoda - Dagobah Training (Same figure as OTC #2, but with new packaging). (Subject to change).


So... they can afford to crank out new carded versions for 2005 (we, the carded collectors, salute you Hasbro  ::)) but they are still giving us re-hashed re-hashes???  If you are going to take the time to draw up new cards and everything, why not at least pick "new" older figures to rehash?

I'd understand if they were straight re-releases of the OTC versions, and I even understand Yoda because he's relatively new figure, BUT giving us yet ANOTHER version of that dang Cantina Han Solo blows.   >:( 

Would it have been SOOOOOO hard to do Bespin Arrival Han Solo?  Or how about Hoth Escape Han to go with Hoth Escape Chewie!  Cantina Han is now hands down the winner of the re-release contest:

1) - Commtech
2) - 2004 Saga "gold stripe card"
3) - 2004 Hall of Fame
4) - OTC
5) - Wal-Mart C-3PO Carry Case
6) - Sam's Club Falcon
7) - 2005 Star Wars card
8?) - Target Figure w/Cup wave 2

Yet another missed opportunity.  I'd have gone with:

1x Han Solo - Mos Eisley Escape Bespin Arrival (using the PotJ Bespin Han)
1x Chewbacca - Hoth Escape Bespin Escape (using Saga Cloud City Chewie)

At least Hasbro kinda seems to be listening by getting some army builders in this case...  :-\

Have a good time Hoser, eh?

Yeah, at least Pedro kept his team in it and the Sox had their chances...
after watching Schill pitch game 1,  I REALLY hope that Johan gets that CY.

It's funny how well the Yankees can "play when they want to play".  Watching these two games leads me to believe that either they did not take the Twins seriously, or, they get totally hyped up for these Sox games.

Jeff phoned in his pick due to some technical difficulties

Damn computers... a quick trip to Radio Shack and I'm back though (any PC repair under $50 is a good one).

For some reason I thought we saw a glimpse of him in GH's Comic-Con coverage, just during Hasbro's presentation (on the screen), not the actual figure.

Good Memory, Brian!

SDCC brings us news of MORE GH figures...

Luke (Jedi) & Gamorrean Guard 2-pack
Lando (Skiff) and Nikto (Skiff) 2-pack
Stormtroopers 2-pack
Jawa and Tusken Raider 2-pack.

GalacticHunter.com a mock-up photo up...

GH had the mock-ups of the Tatooine wave Gamorrean/Luke and Skiff Guards 2-packs, then Jawa and Tusken made their first appearance in the Insider last month...

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC C-3PO on Ebay??
« on: October 13, 2004, 02:35 PM »
Me too...  I've got 2x everyone except poor 3PO  :(

I mentioned it in the ESB thread , but let's take another look...

ANH Wave 1 - 3x Han, 3x Ben, 2x Leia
ANH Wave 1.5 - 3x Luke, 2x Han, 2x Ben, 1x Leia
ESB Wave 2 - 2x Han, 2x Luke, 2x Vader, 2x Yoda
ESB Wave 2.5 - 1x Han, Ben, Leia, Luke, Vader, Yoda, Lando, 3PO
RotJ Wave 3.0 - 2x Fett, 2x Stormie, 1x R2, Chewie, Vader, Lando
RotJ Wave 3.1 - 2x Fett, 1x R2, Chewie, Stormie, Yoda, Ben 3PO - CANCELLED BY HASBRO
RotJ Wave 3.2 - 2x Stormie, Yoda, Vader, 1x Lando, Fett

That's 6 different cases that actually shipped to retail.  Assuming they were all shipped evenly (which we know isn't the case because ANH was overshipped first), you'd end up with 48 figures:

8x Han
6x Ben
6x Luke
6x Vader
5x Yoda
4x Leia
4x Stormie
3x Lando
3x Fett
1x C-3PO
1x R2
1x Chewie

So, best case scenario, 3PO ends up being about 1 per 48 figures, so do R2-D2 and Chewie.   :o 

I'd wager that C-3PO will be even harder to find than R2 and Chewie because most stores glutted on ANH waves.  As a result, they skipped the ESB wave, OR only got in the wave 2 case, NOT the wave 2.5 case that features 3PO.  These stores that are restocking now are probably getting the RotJ wave cases.

Since the RotJ wave is currently shipping, you still have a chance at R2 and Chewie. 

It's rough because not many stores are getting the ESB wave 2.5 case having all moved on to the RotJ cases, so 3PO may start to get very hard to find with the Holidays coming up at retail...

How long are we going to make this draft?

10 rounds with 2 FA pick-ups?

11 rounds with 1 open slot on our bench for a FA?

or a full 12 rounds?

Thanks again for the assist!

Just looking around, KBZ hasn't been anywhere (Scum, GH, JD) since 3:30pm...

AND, now that I look, I haven't seen him poke in here yet?  Has anyone PMed him to let him know it's his pick... at least that way he'll pick tomorrow.

I'm getting sleepy and think I'm headed out for the night.... I'll check back in tomorrow AM.

Boy, how about that Mussina-Schilling Showdown?

Great pitching by both bullpens though...  ::)

What a crazy game!

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Case Cancelations at E-tail
« on: October 12, 2004, 10:38 PM »
Wait?

So, Hasbro holds a pseudo "Fan-Choice" poll, where the fans ended up picking the Scan Trooper for release. 

Then, Hasbro cancelled the main case he's shipping in?

 ::)

For crying out loud!  How hard is it to make and ship these things???   >:(
