Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?

Looks like we won't be seeing these at Walmart...

...not too sound like a hoarder, but I am going to get as many of these that I see at retail.  

I also want to get a few of the Droid sets and a couple Jedi sets too.

 :P

Silverzed, you have some great points.  I do hope that the Walmart situation improves, but lucky for most of us there are either TRU stores or Target stores that should have this stuff in soon, hopefully in sufficient quantities (but not too sufficient; ie; overproduction).

Then, there's always the e-tailers.  Thank the maker for them!!  Well, some of them at least.

 :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?

 :P

Sweet, I saw the pic of the 4th one, but guess what?  The pic I was referring to must be of a 5th Clone!!!

A while back, Bounty Hunter GNT posted a pic of another Clone in a firing position on the Rebelscum forums.  I am 99.9% sure that it is indeed a different Clone than the one shown recently.  

So what are your thoughts everyone on these extra Clones?  I love it!

 :P

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Jabba's Palace Playset anyone? Look...
« on: July 17, 2003, 01:45 AM »
I don't see them ever making anything to that scale or that detailed, but I would pay upwards of $250.00 each for well done playsets of the following by Hasbro if they would just do it:

- Death Star
- Sail Barge w/ Sarlacc Pit
- Jabba's Palace
- Echo Base
- Cloud City
- Theed Palace
- Nemoidian Battleship
- Geonosis Arena
- Coruscant

Wow....................

I could go on and on and on about these figures.  Hasbro really can make some outstanding figures when they put their minds to it and aim at the collectors.  If they would just put forth this level of quality year round...

...and if they could get their distribution problems taken care of...

 :P

Yep, it would be awesome.  Way to not use your heads Hasbro!

Anyone know where a link is to a pic of that 4th Clone I mentioned?

Alrighty!

STANDING

I think the Clones are awesome, especially the standing one.  I remember a scene in the movie right when the Clones jump off the Gunships and make time for the Jedi to board, a Clone standing in that exact position firing upon the Droid Army.  I really, really like this figure.

KNEELING

Another great figure, it really adds another dimension to dioramas when some of your army-builders are in a realistic pose such as this.  Great job Hasbro!!

LYING DOWN

Eh, I would prefer another standing Clone in a different position instead, but it's still alright, so I can't complain, especially with how cool the other two Clones are.

I have noticed that it's cool that the heads are easily interchangeable, and the torsos should just pop right off and be able to switch them around too on the different sets of legs to make a larger variety of armies.

4TH CLONE

I seem to remember seeing somewhere a 4th Clone made for this line, I would not be surprised if it replaces the lying down Clone in later waves.

Overall, I give this pack an A+, and want to get at least 10 more of them!  Excellent work Hasbro, except the case distribution should have one more of these and one less Droid Launcher.  

 :P

Sweet, I found a set of these too the other day, including the Droid 3-pk.  I got two of each of those. and passed on the Droid Launcher and Jedi Starfighter.  I'm sure I'll end up getting those when money isn't so tight.

I also found the Wat Tambor wave on the same day!!  As well as two more Snowtroopers! :)

Crap, I was really hoping that this Battle Droid was made of a sturdier plastic.  Damnit Hasbro!

Man, I really can't wait to get these.  Your reviews have really gotten me to looking forward to these Clones.  Have you taken any pics Nicklab?

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Target Saga A-Wing
« on: July 7, 2003, 09:22 AM »
Cool!  Glad to hear you like it.  Is the pilot cool?

Really?  Is the Y-wing being re-released?  I wish it was, I really like that ship and it was too hard to find before.  I did nab one at Target, but never saw one again after that.

« 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
