Original Trilogy Collection / Re: We Need More Cantina Figures!
« on: June 23, 2004, 05:04 PM »
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
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 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.

News from Hasbro:

"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!"

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...  :(

From Yoda's card-back, it appears that C-3PO is NOT the removable limbs version... nice to see the ESB logo SW card though!

Clue #1 It's going to be the biggest thing to hit the net since Google opened its doors.

Clue #2 It takes two, baby

Clue #3

Clue #1 - On-line
Clue #2 - Multiplayer
Clue #3 - Bowling

On-line Multiplayer Bowling!  YES!  Finally the MMORPG has embraced the Pro Bowlers Association (PBA) for a Massively Multiplayer O-line game!  I can only hope that I can model my character to match my all-time PBA hero, Earl Anthony:

didn't hear anything about an exclusive - or even a new stormtrooper of any kind.


Don't forget abotu the Vintage 12" Stormtrooper:

I think, and this is just speculation, but I think that that might be some kind of Episode 3 sneak preview 12" packaging.  I think the 12" vOTC Stormtrooper is being used in the mock-up package, but the little arm on the cardboard cut-out looks like Gen Grievious' arm to me.  

It is definately NOT the vOTC 12" packaging, so maybe, just maybe it's a sneak look at the Ep3 12" packaging?  Anyone else concur?


Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Dagobah wave

My pal here at work got his Dagobah figures in the mail yesterday.  He ordered them from one of those high priced shops (over $90 for the 4 figures including shipping).  He was kind enough to bring them in so that he could gloat show them to me.

Anyway, I actually got to hold them and it was great.  Luke's head is little strange, but somehow the vacant stare looks alright.  Yoda was SUPER-COOL.  Obi-Wan and R2 were excellent as well.

The packaging is SOOOOOO sweet.  As others have said at various times, when you get that OTC package in your hands, it's a thing of beauty.   :)

I can't wait to get these myself...
