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?

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!!! ;)

Hmmm... that is an awesome idea Spuffy on including the Eopie in a TRU 4-pk.  I really like that.  How's this for an idea; I bet it would sell extremely well...


- Graxol
- red Twilek
- Chok, repainted Barada w/ new head
- Ishi Tib head/hands on POTJ Plo Koon body


- Eopie
- large Podrace flag
- Pit Droid from European bonus pks
- refueling equipment

This would be a poor decision on Hasbro's part.  I applaud them for trying to get that cool accessory out, but why not substitute these figures instead:

- red accessory set Battle Droid
- Jedi Knight (Kit Fisto body w/ human head/hands)
- Geonosian Warrior
- retooled Obi Wan in captured pose


Those are some killer ideas dimetrodon, I would definitely buy any of those you mentioned.

How about this one, has anyone mentioned it yet?


- hut with removable ceiling/roof
- various spears and other Ewok weapons
- comes with Ewok holding baby, and Han with Wicket hugging his leg

Id buy a rerelease as well. I think Hasbro owes us this one since so many don't have one.

Heck yeah they do!!  Good call Metaljedi.  Hasbro owes us! ;D

I would too.  I wasn't too thrilled about the 6" POTJ Mega Figures (Obi Wan, Maul, Destroyer Droid), but this would be a very cool idea!


Quick aside:  I was just reading your similar post at RS, Chewie, and after reading a certain moderator's reply, I realized I'm so glad I found this place today.  I didn't even bother posting myself.  

But to the topic:  I dig this idea.  It would be a neat way for us to get a modular Falcon, a Star Destroyer, et al.  Bring them on!

Yep, Spuffy I know what you mean.  Quite often that mod likes to diss peoples' ideas.  Sometimes he rubs me the wrong way, and lately when he does that towards me or someone else I'll openly argue with him.  After a while, it just gets on my nerves.  I like it much better here anyway, and am glad you're here too.  What a fantastic forum this is.  I really enjoy it.

Man, all you guys have some great ideas.  I was going to go into detail on some ideas but it looks like you all beat me to it!  That's ok, I'll try and come up with some a little later. ;)

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.

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


Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?
« on: May 29, 2003, 09:47 PM »
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.
