Saga '02-'04 / Retail catching up to Online Shops?
« on: October 7, 2003, 12:47 AM »
Is it just me, or does it seem like it is getting more and more difficult lately to get solid cases online?  It seems that every time I check newforcecomics, they are cancelling more Star Wars orders.  Same with my figures I ordered from Kebco...

But at retail, especially Target stores, I have had more success lately.  I would say that August-September were great months for me at retail.  I have seen every figure at least twice, and have even been somewhat successful at Kmart and TRU.  Walmart has been another story though, save for some Clone bonus packs.

Thoughts?

Saga '02-'04 / 3 Toughest SAGA Items to Find
« on: October 4, 2003, 12:48 AM »
So now that the SAGA toys have been out for about 18 months now, which ones have been the toughest to find?

My votes go as follows:

1 - Wedding Padme
2 - Ephant Mon
3 - Acklay Beast

Star Wars Dioramas and Displays / DIORAMA IMPROVEMENTS THREAD
« on: September 20, 2003, 02:38 PM »
I thought it might be cool to have a thread that we can talk about ways we have improved our dioramas, maybe we can help each other out here on this when we come up with new ideas, or want to share old secrets that we have.

BATTLE DROIDS - A NEW HOPE

Well, I finally caved in on Wednesday and ordered a mass number of REAL STANDS for my Battle Droid Army.  This might have been one of the smartest decisions I have ever made for my Star Wars collection.  I received my stands today in the mail, I just wish I had ordered them months ago...

As it stands, I now have an army of 40 red Battle Droids.  That includes about 15 of the ones from the accessory sets, who have a very difficult time standing on their own, or even with the one-pegged Star Wars stands that come with the 4-pk figures.  

So I finally got the REAL STANDS version, and what a difference it makes.  They have two pegs per stand, and they have finally saved my sanity (so far at least).

I have some other tips that are a bit more original than this in improving dioramas, and I'll go into them more a little later.

Any ideas you all want to share?  Anyone have any pics you want to share?

Clone Wars '03-'05 / CLONE VALUE PKS VS. CLONE MULTI PKS
« on: September 11, 2003, 10:57 PM »
Hmmm... which does everyone like more?  

I have found several of each color now of the multi-pk army-builders, and like them a lot.  But now that I have luckily found the Clone War Value pks too, I find myself leaning towards them somewhat.  They are so freaking awesome.

Both are a great value; both are very cool and great ideas by Hasbro.  Both should be very successful.  They blend in great together too in dioramas.  

Question though, which Clones do you prefer?

 :P

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?

 :P

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.

Thoughts?

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?

 :P

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?

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?

 :P

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?

 :P

252
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.

 :P

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?

 :P

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....

 :P
