I think we all already agree that this probably won't ever be made, and I'm certainly not holding my breath, but somewhere down the line they might end up making one.  You never know for sure what Hasbro might try and pull off, especially if these appear in the Clone Wars cartoon (that would actually be very cool).

As for the Reek, well Hasbro was stupid by not releasing the Acklay at the same time, or at least the fat lard beast that tramples Anakin on Naboo.  They overproduced the Reek big time.

I don't see anything wrong with doing that, it's not like they are going to sell anyway. :P

On the other hand though, they keep all inventory through the computers and won't order more unless the quantity is reduced through the registers at a sale or through a telxon (at least that's my understanding).

Hey CHEWIE, I noticed that durring the POTJ line, the Wal*Mart in DeSoto wasn't carrying any Star Wars goods at all.

It looks like in non-movie years, only the big Wal*Mart stores carry the product now.

Makes things that much harder.

Yep, that's one of them!  The other one I think is in Belgrade?  Or is it another town...

Did you know there is a new nice Walmart in Potosi and another in Desloge?  If you're ever in the area, I would recommend checking them out.  Also, I did find the new red Battle Droid at the Walmart in Union.  Too much driving I do at times!   :-\

My job requires quite a bit of traveling, and this past week I have been my two smaller and older Walmarts that no longer carry Star Wars stuff.  This really, really sucks.  Especially since they have quite a bit of space for GI JOE, Transformers, Power Rangers, etc.  But no space anymore for Star Wars.  Grrr....

Thanks mosnab, it will be a day long remembered.  First I found a blonde Imperial Officer, soon I was to find a red Battle Droid. :D

Target stores everywhere in St. Louis, MO are totally cleared out too.  I'm hoping this means that sometime very soon new stuff is going to be easier to get.  Please Hasbro Please!

I like Spuffy's idea.  Make both colors like with the Hoth Han.  I'll probably get several of this figure anyway to open (for dioramas and custom fodder), so the more variety the better!

You're probably right Jedirhino.  I think if it was a TRU exclusive though, everyone would be happy.  Those that want one have the opportunity, those that don't can pass on it, Hasbro makes some sales, and at the same time they don't get burnt by overproduction.


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.

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.

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. :(

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.
