Saga '02-'04 / AOTC Preview Clone Trooper
« on: August 24, 2003, 08:39 PM »
How many of this guy does everyone actually have?  I'm not really sure about myself, but right now I have about 30-35 of them I'd guess.

They blend in ok with the newer versions that have just come out, but I do have to say that I am sick of their static pose.  Although the 3-pks are in static posed as well, at least they have some variety.

About 2 weeks ago, I saw a ton of these Preview Clones at a TRU.  I passed on getting any more though.  Would anyone have gotten them had they seen them?


Saga '02-'04 / SAGA Army-Builder 3-pks?
« on: August 15, 2003, 12:02 AM »
The Clone War 3-pks seem to be very popular, I just found the Jedi 3-pk and Green Clone pk today. 8)

Anyway, do you all think that Hasbro will or should continue these Army-Builder pks beyond the Clone Wars line?  Personally, I'm all for it, and wouldn't be surprised if we see a few more along the way; after all, they seem to be selling extremely well.



Saga '02-'04 / Another Jedi Youngling 2-pk
« on: July 20, 2003, 02:42 PM »
Think it will happen somewhere down the road?  I don't see why not, or perhaps a new robed Obi Wan with a youngling.  

Who wants it it to be made?  Or a Jocasta Nu with the young Jedi from the library scene?


If I woke up tomorrow morning with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn't be more surprised than I am right now.  The past 48 hrs has revealed so much awesome new stuff coming out that I am almost at a loss for words, as there is almost too much great stuff coming out that I don't know where to begin!!

All I can say for sure is that 2004 should be a hell of a year for Star Wars collecting, provided that the retailers get this stuff in and Hasbro doesn't screw up distribution and production numbers.

The Walmart announcement that they will not be carrying Clone Wars product may be a blessing in disguise, as the other retailers may not be getting in much SAGA product due to the Clone Wars stuff, so Walmart might actually be saving us a lot of headaches because they might actually get in substantial SAGA product.

It looks like this year has a TON of POTENTIAL, so we should all be happy for that.  

What are your thoughts on all this new stuff?  Any negativity?


Saga '02-'04 / Screen Scenes Wave IV and V
« on: July 6, 2003, 12:45 PM »
Right now this is what is out or what we know is coming out:

WAVE I - Trash Compactor Sets 1 & 2

WAVE II - War Room I and Jedi Council I

WAVE III - War Room II and Jedi Council II

Any speculation on waves IV and V and beyond?


Saga '02-'04 / New Target Accessory Sets
« on: July 6, 2003, 12:42 PM »
Any word on these lately?  When they heck are they coming out?  Who's looking forward to these and how many of each one do you plan on getting?  What are their drawbacks?  How would you have improved them?


Saga '02-'04 / Imperial 4-pk - how many do you have?
« on: July 6, 2003, 12:40 PM »
Right now I have bought 2 of these, and I suppose I will get two more if I can't find any other new stuff soon (just gotta buy something every now and then!).  If these go on clearance, I will get a lot more of them.

What about you all?


As for me, the only thing I am leaning against getting is the AT-TE Tank.  I already have 3 of the EPI version, and don't have too much use for another at this time (or room for it).  But if they do something really cool like pack in a red Battle Droid or a red OOM-9, then yes, I'll get one.


Saga '02-'04 / What 2003 SAGA product are you still missing?
« on: June 19, 2003, 01:35 AM »
So far, I have been very fortunate and am just missing the Padawan 2-pk.  I could use some more Imperial Officers and Red Battle Droids, but am pretty much caught up.

How about you all?


Saga '02-'04 / Will the CLONE WARS line kill off the SAGA line?
« on: June 14, 2003, 02:01 AM »
Kinda curious here, what are Hasbro's plans after the Clone Wars?  Is it back to SAGA?  Or POTJ2?  Or POTF3?


Saga '02-'04 / Some Walmarts NOT carrying Star Wars now!
« on: June 12, 2003, 09:49 AM »
My job requires quite a bit of traveling, and this past week I have been my two smaller and older Walmarts that no longer carry Star Wars stuff.  This really, really sucks.  Especially since they have quite a bit of space for GI JOE, Transformers, Power Rangers, etc.  But no space anymore for Star Wars.  Grrr....


Saga '02-'04 / Kamino Airwhale!!!
« on: June 9, 2003, 12:55 AM »

Check out this fantastic customizing job by Owen Driscoll.  Would you bite if Hasbro made this?  I definitely would.


Saga '02-'04 / OMG! I found something NEW at Walmart!
« on: June 6, 2003, 01:47 AM »
Yep, I was at a Walmart today on a lunchbreak on a business trip, and ran back to the toy section, and to my surprise I saw a BLONDE Imperial Officer and Barriss Offee.  I nabbed the Imperial Officer, and then decided to check out the MOTU figures and next to them on the shelf face down was...



Too bad someone beat me to the new Yoda and the Jedi kiddos, but this is definitely better than 95% of my recent toy runs.

I know a few reports have trickled in on these being spotted at Target stores, but anyone else seen them at Walmart too?


Saga '02-'04 / New Army Builders?
« on: May 31, 2003, 08:25 PM »
Which army-builders are we still missing?  Or you think need to be redone in some capactiy?

For starters, why haven't we gotten a Cloud Car pilot yet?  Or how about a Scout Trooper with CT Stormtrooper-esque articulation?


Long before the Simpsons stuff ever came out I thought that Hasbro/Kenner was missing an opportunity and should do something like this.

Think about it...

- one new figure
- awesome accessories
- small playset with a base and three walls and removable ceiling
- connects with all other small playsets
- $20 pricepoint

As long as the quality on these was nice, and no electronics were included, I think Hasbro could pull off something that we would really like.
