Yeah, I usually check, and thankfully, Hasbro has been doing pretty good lately from what I have seen.  I did see a new hover chair Yoda at a collector's shop last week that had a horrible paint job on one of his eyes.  The guy was charging $23.00 for it.  ::)

With the new Imperial 4-pks, I have had to be very picky with them.  It seems that 9 out of 10 I see have horrible paint applications on the Stormtrooper mask and the AT-ST driver eyes.

 :P

About once every few months, I take my collection down and rearrange everything to make new dioramas, new scenes from the movies, etc.  I guess they kind of get cleaned off when I do that. :D

And that is always at least a full day project.   ;)

I want new, all-around awesome updated versions of Stormtrooper Luke/Han.  Good Lord that would make me one happy Wookie.

Since they've lowered prices on Star Wars cases, I would have to say that Entertainment Earth has really moved up the ladder for me, especially since they are usually very fast at getting stuff in and sending it out to their customers.  They also guarantee mint items if you are needing your stuff carded.

I still go with newforce most of the time though, but lately they have been ever so slow on getting stuff out as well as updates.  Not that I am saying it's their fault though.

If somewhere down the line they do this, I suggest they make it a TRU exclusive.  TRU always does a fine job stocking their exclusives, plus this would limit production enough so Hasbro wouldn't get burnt.  They could scale it down some in size, and even throw in a second Kaminoian to spice it up a little.

Of course, I'd rather see a Sarlacc, Sail Barge, giant Spider Droid and AT-TE first, but perhaps somewhere down the line there will be a place for this in the Star Wars line.  Count me in when that day comes.

 :P

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

Ugh...this topic makes me sick!! :o

Anyway, I'd have to go with the SAGA Bespin Escape Chewbacca.  

I remember as a kid, losing my Chewie figure and it was depressing.  My parents and I looked everywhere for one in 1985 and couldn't find one anywhere.  Too bad they didn't have the internet back then.  It just didn't seem right having Luke and Han attack an Imperial Garrison w/out Chewie along for the fun.  Guess this was a sign of things to come as he dies in VECTOR PRIME. :(

 :P

« on: June 8, 2003, 08:02 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. ???

Grass is always greener.  Last "new" fig I saw was the Maul fig (#42 or so) and Tatooine Attack Anakin ::)  All of one case.  Canuckian Walmarts are reporting no new figures until August.   :o

Oh man, that was yoor 666th post.  Yikes...

If you want, send me a PM and I can try and help you on some newer figures if you like.

 :P

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Anyone want a giant Spider Droid?
« on: June 8, 2003, 07:59 PM »
Anyone remember the SPIDOR vehicle of Skeletor's back in the day?  It was a huge black spider w/ red legs, was electronic and it walked.  It was just freaking cool.  

I think that Hasbro could do something somewhat similar in size to that, and make it under $40.00.  I would buy at least two of them.

 :P

Yep, I got that too.  I think it is really cool that the Vader that is being repacked is the MOTD Vader.  It's a great figure.

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.

« on: June 8, 2003, 02:24 PM »
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.

 :P

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.

 :P

Saga '02-'04 / Re: THIRD Imperial Officer head variant is a go!
« on: June 6, 2003, 01:49 AM »
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?

 :P

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...

...a RED BATTLE DROID! :D

Wheeeeeeee!!!

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?

 :P
