Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: No Worries for the Red Battle Droid

I still say that the vast majority of the blame falls on Hasbro.  They are the ones that should be held accountable for the marketing of their product, not the retailers.

The retailers shouldn't have to distinguish between a case having 3 Lukes, 3 Vaders, 3 Hans and 3 Mauls vs one with 4 Padme's, 3 Wat Tambors, 3 Coleman Trebors and 2 Chancellor Palpatine.  Most anyone ordering it is going to be like "who in the hell is Coleman Trebor?"   They are naturally going to order up on the main character case because they are familiar with those characters, causing major problems with the retail situation.  There's many other possible scenarios too of course.

I no longer rely on retail for barely anything anymore Star Wars related.  I consider anything I find at retail as a bonus.

Long before the Simpsons stuff ever came out I thought that Hasbro/Kenner was missing an opportunity and should do something like this.

Think about it...

- one new figure
- awesome accessories
- small playset with a base and three walls and removable ceiling
- connects with all other small playsets
- $20 pricepoint

As long as the quality on these was nice, and no electronics were included, I think Hasbro could pull off something that we would really like.

Thoughts?

I would like a scene like that Jango Fettish.  That's a great idea.

Especially with the color variants.  These are going to be awesome.  

I've seen a prototype for a 4th Clone over at the rebelscum forums.  I wonder how they are going to do that?

And I am sure that Hasbro will goof and keep the production numbers on the Droid 3-pk and Jedi 3-pk the same as these.  There should be at least 3X as many Clone 3-pks produced as there are Jedi 3-pks, and 2X that of the Droid 3-pks.  

These Clone sets are going to SELL.  I predict they will be one of Hasbro's hottest Star Wars items ever.

All new aliens with cool articulation and WEAPONS would have made the Cantina sets a much better success.  It was a great concept, but executed poorly.

As for the BH set, everyone has pretty much summed it up for me already why I will be passing on it.  

Count me in for 1 Hoth set, and 2-3 Imperial sets.  If Vader hadn't been included, I am sure I would have gotten 5-10 sets once I got my finances settled.

The Bounty Hyner set is definitely my least favorite of the three.

Money is tight for the next couple of weeks, so even if I saw the Impreial 4-pk I would probably have to pass.  I am going to have to avoid TRU and all the other retailers until my paychecks start coming in from my new insurance sales job. :-\

This really is going to be great, isn't it Jedirhino!   :D

I just hope that Hasbro doesn't underproduce these.  It looks like they have a surefire hit here.  Practically everyone is going to want at least one set, and a lot of people are going to want a lot more.  Heck, I am sure I will drop at least $100.00 on these.

 :P

Kitster would be a great pack-in, I never thought of that.  Good idea OCB!  

Adding Shmi too with the ability to straddle this fugly beast would be very cool.

Maybe later down the road they could add Anakin and Padme too as a variant.  Freaks like myself would purchase it. ;)

 :P

Saga '02-'04 / Should Hasbro re-release the Eopie?
« on: May 27, 2003, 02:58 AM »
If so, how should they do it?  

With the same Qui Gon?

With a Padme and Anakin riding it?

With an all new Alien rider?

As a Deluxe like the Nexu?

Who wants one?

 :P

Man oh man my wife is going to be a tad mad when she sees the Clone Army I have established by the fall...  ;D

The little Dwarf one is pretty cool, but I think that a large one is possible.  An AT-TE is probably more likely, like you said dimetrodon, but it would be so cool if Hasbro did both.

 :P

Just one figure?  I can't narrow it down to that...

...can I pick one figure from each movie?


TPM - orange handmaiden

AOTC - Owen, Beru and Cliegg 3-pk

ANH - Myo the cantina cyclops

ESB - General Rieken

ROTJ - holographic Luke

 :P

Hot damn that is a great find JEDIMAC, and good luck in your house bidding!

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Favorite Geonosian???
« on: May 21, 2003, 08:07 PM »
Nice post JJ.

I would like an all new Geonosian too, and hopefully Hasbro would use some of your ideas.  The ones out now look great, but can barely ever stand.  It's so aggravating to walk into my Star Wars room and see 1/3 of my Geonosians lying down and a number of Battle Droids knocked over too...

 :P
