Revenge of the Sith / Tantive IV
« on: November 5, 2004, 02:15 PM »
Think we might get this as a playset?  I think it would be a great item - it goes for 2 different movies - I know I'd get two playsets of it!!!


So far, I have 12 - got 6 online, found a few in stores and my wife also picked a few up.  It's a totally excellent figure, especially with a little black paint to touch up some needed areas on the mask.

How about you all?


This is ridiculous... is this not the hardest SAGA figure to find?  I look around to get a couple (luckily I have 2 of them already) online, and they are all sold out or people are wanting $40-$50 each for them....

Why doesn't Hasbro re-release this in some manner?

Revenge of the Sith / Wookiee Army
« on: August 23, 2004, 12:12 PM »
So who is planning on creating a grand Wookie army with EP3 figures?  Anyone planning on getting several of the Yarua (senator) figure for an early start?


Original Trilogy Collection / VOTC Stormtrooper availability?
« on: August 12, 2004, 12:29 PM »
Seeing that the first wave is pretty darn easy to acquire now, what do you all think about the ROTJ wave?  Will there be enough Stormtroopers for those that want a few?


Revenge of the Sith / AT-TE
« on: August 6, 2004, 01:17 PM »
Think they'll finally make this thing for the EP3 line? I'm pretty sure they show up in the Kashyyyk battle.

How much would you pay for one?  I'd easily pay $60 if it was somwhat close to scale.


Why in the heck is every TRU in the world getting in a ton of OTC vehicles (Vader's TIE, X-Wing, TIE Fighter) but is seems like none of them are getting in the basic figures?


Original Trilogy Collection / No! I changed my mind!

Oh great.  Now the pics that were posted of the VOTC Stormtrooper look freaking awesome.  They seem to have adjusted the helmet to more closely resemble the CT version.  Guess I am going to have to get several of these now!  

I still think the CT version is great, and will blend in rather well with this new one.

What does everyone else think about this figure?  Doesn't it look unreal?  Man oh man, I want an army of these now!


Original Trilogy Collection / Luke's Poncho
« on: July 2, 2004, 10:35 AM »
After looking at the upcoming Jedi Force Payskool line (which looks pretty darn cool), I am very impressed with the poncho they have on the Endor Luke.  This looks to me to be superior to anything they have done with the 3-3/4" line.  Anyone else think so?  I'd like to have several of these ponchos for my Endor rebel army.  Thoughts?


Let's say that somewhere down the road, Hasbro ends up making some shocking wonderful announcements...




If it were to happen, and these were the mother of all vehicles/playsets, how much would you be willing to pay for these?  Say, one comes out in 2005, one in 2006 and one is 2007.

I would be more than happy to shell out hundreds of dollars for each of these if they were done correctly.  Look at how great the USS FLAGG GI JOE playset was, how huge the giant shuttle was they made, etc.  If Hasbro did things right, they really could profit from this, as well as make some fans very, very happy (they could even include 2 ultimate figures with each one to make them even more desirable).



What would they be?  Let's say you could have 4 figures in each wave, and these would be all new sculpts of all new and perhaps some resculpted figures.

This crazy Wookie would probably go with:

ANH - Wave 1

- Owen Lars (resculpt)
- CZ3 Droid (all new)
- Stormtrooper Luke (new sculpt close to CT version)
- Stormtrooper Han (new sculpt close to CT version)

ESB - Wave 2

- General Veers (removable armor/helmet)
- Admiral Piett (new sculpt)
- Bespin Guard (black POTJ version)
- Snowspeeder Luke (resculpt)

ROTJ - Wave 3

- Princess Leia (Bousch disquise new sculpt)
- Han Solo (post-carbonite new sculpt)
- Bib Fortuna (resculpt)
- Royal Guard (resculpt - silk robes)

Thoughts on this you crazy collectors?


Original Trilogy Collection / Most Overdue
« on: May 27, 2004, 02:28 PM »
I don't know if this belongs here, because of the PT figures (even though we could see the EP3 preview figures on OTC cards), and I don't think it belongs in SAGA because it's coming to an end.  Anyways, what are the most overdue Star Wars items in your opinions, and why?

How about one vehicle/playset per movie, and one figure/screen scene per movie.  Here's my thoughts, I hope to see your opinions as well.


Figure - a freaking handmaiden in the orange outfit; Padme wears this outfit a lot

Playset - an ultimate Theed Palace, with two sides; the outside of the palace entrance, and the interior would have the Queen's chamber room along with a Jedi duel area and a hangar for a ship - this is the central location in TPM, why not a playset finally


Figure - a Lars family Screen Scene with Owen, Beru and Cliegg; these are very important characters that are being neglected

Vehicle - AT-TE, what a great toy this would make; and the Homing Spider Droid would be pretty nice too


Figure - A cinema scene with Stormtrooper Luke, Stormtrooper Han, and a circular Death Star control console with an all new Death Star Trooper, these consoles are an icon of the Empire

Playset - Modular Death Star playset for obvious reasons


Figure - Ultra/Deluxe Hoth Rebel Trooper (final sculpt w/ ultimate articulation and sculpt -no beard or stupid facial expression and not shorter than Leia) and anti-vehicle cannon

Playset - Modular Cloud City playset like the Death Star idea


Figure - Royal Guard, a final kickbutt version with silk robe and ultimate articulation

Vehicle - the mother of all vehicles would double as a hell of a playset; Jabba's Sail Barge

That new poster of the OTC figures had better not be the real thing ...why in the world would they actually re-release some of these figures?  Do they want the worst peg-warming problem of all time???

Seriously!  Why in the world are they repacking that terrible Bib Fortuna?  Or the Jawa 2-pk?  And Wicket? The already overproduced Cantina Han and All New Likeness Leia?  Oh my God...

By my count there are only -7-SEVEN-7- all new figures in this entire bunch.  I don't mind seeing a few rehashes like the harder to find SAGA figures and a few POTJ figures here and there, but this is ridiculous.  

Dear God, please knock some sense into someone at Hasbro.
