Saga '02-'04 / Re: MORE NEW FOR 2004!!!!!!
« on: October 14, 2003, 01:36 AM »
Wow.... this looks like some nice variety by Hasbro with new figures, along with some much needed resculpts (Endor Han).

I really can't wait to see some pics of this stuff...

And too bad it's my bedtime (according to my wife), I'd like to comment more! ;)


Well, I don't necessarily think that this is a bad line of Star Wars figures.  I just think they screwed up with the first wave by only including 3 figures... now 6 figures would have been awesome, with two of each figure per case.  In other words, Anakin and Yoda wouldn't be warming pegs so much if there were less of them to go around, and especially if there were other characters in the mix to start things off (Assaj Ventress, Durge, Sae Sae Tiin, etc).  

As things stand, I think this line still has loads of potential.  The 3-pks have been a success.  They sell well everywhere in the St. Louis area, with the exception of a few Droid Launchers.  The vehicles are cool too, every single kind seems to be selling extremely well.    

Now if they do continue the non-animated line even further, here's a few suggestions for figures:

- Count Dooku
- Red Battle Droid
- Padme Amidala
- Aayla Secura
- Seperatist Mercenary

And of course a few more multi-pks

- Republic Senators pk
- Jedi pk version 2
- White Clones (all standing)
- OOM-9 w/ 2 Battle Droids

Aw what the hell, vehicles too

- Giant Spider Droid

That being said though, yes, this line could definitely hurt the SAGA line if Hasbro isn't v-e-r-y careful.

If I could find some more, I certainly would! I have this goal of one day, sometime in the future, setting up a nice little workbench where I can customize and paint figures. Ah, to dream...

Customizing is a lot of fun and is one of my favorite things about the hobby (especially making dioramas).  If you ever get into it, I hope you post some of it for all of us to see. :)

My job involves quite a bit of travel, so I guess I'm lucky because this is what I've found so far:

White X6
Yellow X3
Green X2
Blue X2

Ugh... I knew this would happen.  The real problem in my opinion was only releasing 3 figures in the first assortment... it would have been much better if they had done something like this for the first wave, which has 12 figures per case:

ARC Trooper X3
Yoda X3
Anakin X3
Assaj Ventress X3

Or, even better yet:

ARC Trooper X4
Yoda X3
Anakin X2
Assaj Ventress X2
Red Battle Droid X1 (Clone Wars packaging)


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.

Has anyone besides me customized any of these yet?


Saga '02-'04 / Re: Hold the phone--"Deluxe" Rieekan?
« on: October 4, 2003, 12:50 AM »
$10 or not, I plan on getting at least 3-4 of them for that cool tactical display.  I'll do head swaps on my extra Riekens.  Wheeeeeee!


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


Clone Wars Line - YES

Animated Line - I'd rather collect Barbies

Not to say that these aren't well done or anything, but I hate them.

The 2004 Deluxe or "Ultra" line looks fantastic.  Too bad we didn't get this quality in the early SAGA deluxes.


« on: September 24, 2003, 01:09 AM »
I agree.  I'd like to rip their arms off.


If we're lucky, we might see Hasbro continue to do this for the later waves on the Clone Wars line...

Now that I have the yellow multi-pk, I must say that I think Hasbro has done an outstanding job on both ideas.

The only thing I kinda dislike about the multi-pks is that the paint on the Clones isn't as shiny as the paint on the Clones from the bonus pks.  Not that big a deal though.
