Saga '02-'04 / Re: OMG! I found something NEW at Walmart!
« on: June 8, 2003, 02:27 PM »
My local Wally World just put up a "new" case of Padme DFC, SP-4&JN66, Blonde Imp, Yoda, and the like. I thought we were soppesed to be seeing actually new figures? Not new shipments of old figures. ???

I'd rather be seeing the absolute latest figures too, but those are still considered new in a sense because most stores still haven't even put those out yet.

Yep, I agree with you Dressel.  I would like another AT-ST someday possibly, but right now I really want them to make an AT-TE and a giant Spider Droid first.

I found a ton of these today at a TRU in my area and I really like them too.

Too bad that the paint details on the Stormtrooper on these that I found was subpar though, especially on the two little circle dots on the sides of the chin.  They are supposed to be black with silver in the middle, but were still white.

I wouldn't mind seeing even more head variants of these in the future...

...also wouldn't it be cool if a 4-pk of Imperial Officers was offered like the 4-pk Stormies/Fleet Troops/etc?

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?

Lando, I'm glad you gave that awesome review and it's great seeing my favorite scoundrel get excited about the hobby again.  Now I need to find these too!

Dimetrodon, do you still want the Ephant Mon, Hoth Han and Carkoon Fett?  If so, I can hunt around here for a week or so and see if I can nab you an Imperial Forces set.

Great find Jedirhino, your patience has paid off. ;D

I'll still keep an eye out for the Yoda Deluxe/Acklay for you, how do you like the 3PO I sent you?  I love that set and now have 4 of them opened.  It's a great set with the conveyor belt, red Battle Droid army-builder, and the extra 3POs can be customized to be other protocol droids.  Do you want another set if I come across one?


Heh heh...

I don't know if it's a winning idea or not, but I'd buy it.  Especially if the Han was well articulated and was more poseable than the SAGA Endor Han.

A baby Ewok would be great, and my Endor diorama would look very cool with some Ewok corpses to go along with many Stormtroopers lying dead.

I agree with you 110% dimetrodon.  Hasbro needs to get their heads out of their you-know-what.

The thing that is really going to suck is that they will probably keep the production numbers on these obvious peg-warmers as high as the Imperial 4-pk and the Clone 3-pk.  >:(


OK, let me try and come up with some cool ideas too...


- new Obi Wan w/ robe
- table, chairs, drinks
- window viewing space and Naboo
- opening door


- Daulty Dofine
- control panels
- opening door Qui Gon slices through
- windows showing space
- viewscreen with face of Amidala (can be changed to a blank screen too)


- Darth Maul
- defeated Qui Gon Jinn
- removable red electro-barrier
- open pit


- nightgown Padme (wheeeee!!)
- bed and nightstand
- killer centipedes
- exploding window


- Deathstick dealer
- corner of bar
- dealing table
- giant viewscreens showing sporting events

These are just a few more ideas, soon I'll try and think of some more... :)

Nice ideas guys.  

A well all-around Snowspeeder pilot would be awesome.  Then they could do head variants including Luke and Wedge.

Also, how about the chubby Snowspeeder pilot who rescues Han and Luke from the ices of Hoth?

Once again I find Hasbro at fault.  Stupid Hasbro!


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?


Saga '02-'04 / Re: If YOU could pick some Screen Scenes
« on: May 31, 2003, 08:23 PM »
Hmmm... A new ANH Vader with Kung-Fu Gripô, the Fan Choice Captain Antilles figure, and a reissued Stormtrooper maybe? Sounds like a plan to me.

Damn right this is a great idea!!  Or instead of a Stormie, how about a 4th head variant to the Imperial Officer?  Heh heh heh


Saga '02-'04 / Re: A Complete Collection
« on: May 31, 2003, 08:21 PM »
Let's see...

I don't collect vintage, but I do have about 50 or so figures from my childhood, with some vehicles that are in horrible condition.

I do have an Imperial Shuttle though in spectacular condition that I bought about 3 years ago, and a Sandcrawler that is in fair-good condition.

As for modern, I collect about 99.9% of everything and collect loose.  There are a few here and there that I do pass on though, such as the flipping deluxe figures and that damn new R2D2.  If I think something totally sucks, I'll pass on it.

I will also be passing on the Bounty Hunter 4-pk, I don't need to throw away $20 on that at all.  Bad decision Hasbro!!  Boo!! Boooo!!! ;)
