I'd have dumped the re-packs and then kept going as follows...

2004 Wave 1 (Saga) - Hoth
2004 Wave 2 (Saga) - Tatooine
2004 Wave 3 (Saga) - Jabba's Palace
2004 Wave 4 (Saga) - Yavin 4
2004 Wave 5 (Saga) - Star Destroyer
2004 Wave 6 (Saga) - Endor Generals
2004 Wave 7 (OTC) - Dagobah
2004 Wave 8 (OTC) - Bespin

2004 Wave 9 (OTC) - Mos Eisley Cantina
Hem Dazon (Arcona)
Feltipern Trevagg (Goat looking guy)
Bom Vimadin (horn-head guy)
Elris Helrot (Scream Guy)

2004 Wave 10 (OTC) - Star Destroyer ReDux
Imperial Naval Officer (Dress uni w/rank insignia, not that jugly jump suit)
Zuckuss
4-LOM (these two look bad compared to the new Fett/Bossk/Dengar)
Imperial Dignitary #3 (hey!  If Antilles counts for Yavin 4, I can fudge a bit too)

2004 Wave 11 (OTC) - The Death Star
Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise)
Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise)
Chewbacca w/kick-ass bowcaster and binders
Grand Moff Tarkin - new sculpt, able to pose with hand on chin


Yeah... that'd do it.  ALL of which would be brand new sculpts (Stormie Han and Luke could use parts from SA Clone Trooper though).

*sigh*

I have only picked up the "super-poseable" Spidey from the Spider-Man 2 line so far, but after reading THIS REVIEW over at mwctoys.com, I'm awfully tempted to get this magnet version just for fun.  Some of those poses look pretty cool, the magnets must be fairly strong.  Has anyone picked this figure up yet?

Bsed on the cool looking pictures, I picked this one up at Target last night (on sale for $5.28).  For less than $6, you get a kick-ass uber-articluated Spidey that can be pretty much posed any place in my metal-frame cubilce office.

I highly recommend Magnetic Spidey from Spiderman 2!  Well worth the $6.

It's stuff like this that make me wonder why the vOTC end up at $10, when Spidey kicks 30+ point of Articulation at $6... I know, different license, differnt scale, etc, but DANG!  This Spidey rocks.

Hmmm...

Last year's exclusives for this convention were the Han/Chewie 2-pack and Obi-Wan/Vader 2-pks.



They were both re-pack sets as well, but with new convention-exclusive boxes.  I am not sure if they weer ever released en masse in the USA.  The Silver Boba Fett from that convention was released to the US, because they were sponsored by LFL.  The Box Sets though, were sponsored directly by the convention itself and were only offer to the US via eBay or secondary markets.

Dig this crazy Mexi-con Exclusive...

Star Wars Encuentros 2004 Exclusive






Cool, but not worth $25 in my book...

I hope some of those rumors pan out...

A Cantina #2 set with Hem Dazon, Bom Vimadin, and Feltipern Trevagg would go a LOOOOONG way towards making up for all the rest of the OTC re-hashes.

It'd be like my own little personal apology letter from HAsbro... "Sorry Mr. ticked-off long time collector.  Here's an OT Cantina scene 3-pack to make amends"  :)

K-Mart has had many Hasbro exclusives before (Transformers, BeyBlade, GI Joe), but this is the first Star WArs one to stick I think...

Back in the days of Episode 2, K-Mart was originally going to carry the Obi-Wan and Jedi Starfighter exclusive along with a Jango Pilot plus Slave 1 exclusive, but K-Mart dropped them thanks to the onset of bankruptcy hearings and Hasbro's unwillingness to extend K-Marts credit.

K-Mart couldn't pay for them, so Hasbro dropped them.  The Obi-Wan set, having already made it to production was sold through KB Toys, but the Jango Pilot Slave 1 set was scrapped.

So, K-Mart has had exclusives before, but nothing this HOT before... these should sell very well for K-Mart.

After some consideration, I've decided that this is what I'll be buying from the OTC:

8x OTC figures (Dagobah & Bespin waves, plus the "new" clean Bespin Luke)
24x vOTC figures (1x to open, 1x to keep carded)
1x OTC Falcon
1x OTC Sandcrawler (because of my $50 GC from SWShop.com)
1x OTC Cantina Scene 3-Pack from K-Mart


Here's what I'm passing on:

The 30 OTC re-hash/re-pack figures not mentioned above
All 4 TRU exclusive Jedi Council Scenes
All 3 Wal-Mart DVD Commemorative packs
TRU OTC Endor 4-Pack w/Speeder Bike
TRU OTC Naboo 4-pack w/Kaduu
OTC TIE Fighter
OTC X-Wing
OTC Darth Vader's TIE
OTC Y-Wing w/Gold Leader
All 12" figures
All OTC buddies
All OTC Lightsabers

That leave only the OTC Slave 1 from Target and the OTC Emperor from SWShop.com are left for me to decide on... I'll wait for more info on that for me to decide.

I usually stay away from K-Mart, but this will actually give me an excuse to go into the Oakdale Big K on my way home from (or on my way to) work everyday.

I wonder what they'll charge... $20?  $25?  $30?

Maybe they mean NEW the same way NBC does...

If you haven't bought them yet, then they're NEW to you! ( a la re-runs)

Here's a brand NEW reality show and by NEW, we mean that we took parts from other reality shows and crammed them together to get this one!

Notice they don't mention the fact that all the figures are re-packs on either this set or the DVD comemora-dreck sets.

DING DING DING!

News from Hasbro:
http://hasbro.com/starwars/pl/page.headlines/id.1060/dn/default.cfm



"NEW Cantina Aliens Scene Pack! Exclusively at Kmart This Summer!

From A New Hope, this cantina display was inspired by the scene from the Mos Eisley cantina on Tatooine where Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi hired the services of Han Solo and Chewbacca. The scene includes three alien figures - Dr. Evazan, Wuher, and Kitik Keed'kak and comes with three sections of a bar with six stools and multiple drinking mugs. Displayed in the Original Trilogy Collection black and silver package, this Cantina Alien Scene Pack will be available exclusively at Kmart this summer!"

Saga '02-'04 / Re: mock up prototype 12" stormtrooper?
« on: June 23, 2004, 02:44 PM »
The other thought was that this could be some sort of Clone Wars 12" Figure....

Either something that got canned for the already-run CW series OR maybe something to go with the Clone Wars cartons next Spring?  Sort of the last transition to Ep3.

Maybe Gen Grevious will be all over the sneak preview packaging to introduce him to those who haven't seen the cartoon?

Lots of possibilities...

Markus Naslund in EA SPORTS' NHL 2005

As Wild fan, and therfore an anti-fan of the Canucks, I was happy to read that Naslund will be the cover boy for the NHL2005.  ;)

With Bertuzzi out indefinately on his suspension and the EA Curse hanging over Naslund's head, it should be a banner year for the Canucks!

Let's just hope that the curse hits NASLUND only and doesn't spill over into the passengers of his car like it did with Dany Heatley last year...  :(
