Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Collection 1 Figures
« on: March 28, 2005, 03:55 PM »
If you look at the "Action Toy Arena, they have most of the figures sorted out by Collection...

and yeah, since he is in collection 1, the Wookiee has an action feature:

"Squeeze legs together for Battle Bash!"  ::)

Oooh... and the Nemoidian Warrior has one too:

"Squeeze legs together for POWER SMASH!"   ::)

At least the clone just says "14 points of articulation" and makes no mention of an action feature!   ;D

Don't know if these are technically Collection 1 or 2, but these look all sorts of cool:

Since they are technically scheduled for Collection 1, I'm moving this one over to the Collection 1 thread...  ;)

As for Philip, I think his comments, especially this one particular paragraph, much better convey anything that I could possibly say regarding how they feel about their members...

What I don't understand is how it's possible this email really bothered any of you.  You think you're going to trip me up and point a finger at me? Get a life and move along.  We have tens of thousands of users who were delighted to receive the emails, hope we continue the site, and support everything we do on it.  I'll waste no further time on this issue with you.

Kinda scary really.   :-\

"Get a life and move along. "

What a positive way to run a SW Forum.   ::)

He still didn't address why he sent the spam to those who DID "get a life and move along" after having their accounts locked/banned.

And to complete the set, here's the Hasbro update on TRU:

April 2nd at TRU



Nothing that wasn't in the press release earlier today, but they do confirm the April 10th date for Holo Yoda, NOT Midnight Madness.

Hasbro finally gets around to letting us know about the exclusives... or rather Lava Vader that we've known about forever.   ::)

April 2nd at Target

Nothing about the other rumored exclusives (cups, clones, etc).

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Wal-Mart Exclusive

Hasbro FINALLY gets around to trying to level out the confusion about these...

Wal-Mart Exclusive Info for April 2nd

And, for a limited time only, collectors will be able to purchase (while supplies last) the Wal-Mart "Early-Bird" Exclusive - classic reproductions of the first four original Star Wars action figures from 1977. Only available on April 2 & 3 at the Wal-Mart 48 Hours of the Force tent stores and on walmart.com, the Early Bird is an exclusive every fan will want to add to his or her collection. When consumers purchase the Early Bird, they receive a certificate that they mail in to get the four Star Wars action figures: Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2-D2, and Chewbacca. This mail-in figure promotion was done back in 1977 for the original Star Wars movie and Wal-Mart and Hasbro are bring it back to celebrate the last movie in the saga. Only a limited number will be available so fans will have to act fast before they're all gone.

As of March 5th, there are 1304 Target stores...
1304 Stores * 36 figures/store = 46,944 Lava Vaders (at least)

That jives with the reports that say that right on the Vader figure it says "1 of 50,000".

I guess I am not surprised that out of 1300 stores, 1 or 2 or even 10 can't follow directions.

Even if 50 stores screw up and put them out early, that still means that 96% of the stores are following the rules...

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Spanish Magazine Scan: Death Star
« on: March 28, 2005, 01:38 PM »
Maybe Papatine used the power of Six Sigma to streamline his processes for Death Star Construction?

You know, all of his "process improvements" added up allowed him to reach a much tighter construction entitlement of only 3-4 years instead of 18 years?   :P

I imaginge that once you build ONE Death Star, you've got all the kinks worked out and can do a much better job the second time around...?

Ultimate Villian Darth Vader 12" Figure x $29.99? + 6% sales tax = $31.79[/li]

Does anyone know if my prices are off for anything?

They all look pretty close to what we've heard so far, with the exception of the 12" Ultimate Anakin/Vader.

The Hasbro MSRP = $49.99, and Amazon.com had it listed for about the same.  I think it was in the Target and TRU computers for around $40-45.

This just in from today's TRU Press Release:

Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith Holographic Yoda Figure from Hasbro

Jedi Master Yoda, a close friend of the Wookiees, travels to their homeworld of Kashyyyk to help personally spearhead the Republic defense of that planet. While there, the revered Jedi sends a holographic transmission to the Jedi Council to discuss recent ominous events. The Holographic Yoda figure features unique translucent styling and is available only at Toys "R" Us beginning April 10 as a gift with a Hasbro Star Wars purchase of $25 or more. Not sold separately. While supplies last. No batteries required. Ages 4 and up.


No need to go to midnight madness I guess if they won't even have Holo Yoda yet...  >:(

I don't even want to guess...  :-\

If they have figures through #40 as some are saying, well that's:

38 for carded collection (counting both Red and Blue guard, minus the 3 I grabbed early - yoda/tarful/r2)
41 for loose collection (counting both Red and Blue guard)
6 extras to open (Army builders for guards & clones)

Then, we add in:
4x deluxe figures
2x small vehicles
1x large vehicle

That brings us to:
approx. $474.35 for 85 basic figures ($5.24 at Wal-Mart)
approx. $46.82 for 4 deluxe figures
approx. $23.41 for the small vehicles (BARC, Boga)
approx. $31.94 for the ARC-170

Grand total = $576.52

Of course, it will be more if they have the Mustafar playset or other stuff...   :(
Or, it could be less (by about $25) if I get the Target coupon...  :)

If you are going to ban me (which I have no idea why I was banned BTW) have the decency of removing my e-mail address from your damned Spam Listings ::)

Here's whay Phil had to say...

PW comment #1

PW comment #2


"If you do not wish to receive it, you are encouraged to stop using it and notify me such so I may remove your accounts."

- what about those whose accounts you CLOSED/BANNED, yet you STILL spammed them.   ::)

Lame.

I'm now taking every post RS makes about that thing with extreme skepticism. They don't seem to know anything about it, and are just posting whatever random thing someone writes into them with.

Ding ding ding!  I concur fully.

Every post they have about it is different - I think they are talking out of their ass on this one.
