I ended up hitting over a dozen Dollar General stores in June/July and never saw a single one of those figures.  Bah.

Nice reference pics, Nicklab.  I'd buy all of those in a heartbeat... multiples of most!

Oh yeah, those are awesome too.  I'd buy those... I'm sure you've seen THIS before, but if not, be sure to check out all the awesome pics.

My Wish List:

- Dwarf Spider Droid (NEW) w/ Battle Droid
- Nexu (NEW) w/ Arena Padme and chain

- Chancellor's Podium w/ Emperor Palpatine (NEW, red robes)
- Boga (repack) w/ Obi Wan Kenobi
- Medicial Capsule w/ Crispy Anakin (NEW)

- Death Star Command Console w/ Death Star Trooper (gray)
- Cantina Bar Dispenser w/ Wuher (NEW)
- Yavin IV Command Table w/ Jan Dodonna (NEW)

- Hoth Transport w/ Rebel Driver
- Wampa (NEW) w/ Luke Skywalker

I don't buy any of this stuff, but man, that thing looked ridiculous.  Even if I was a diehard fan of Marvel/etc., that thing would be a letdown... Hasbro needs to go all out for things like this, or don't go at all.  It reminds me of some of their weak attempts at Star Wars playsets in the past.

Saw the Joe ninja suv and the Joe 1/2 Hiss Tank thingy over the weekend.  Meh... Guess that's all that's new until next year?

Where did you see the SUV?  I've seen the Tread Ripper (or whatever it is at Target twice the past week, bought one to save for my son).

I saw the Helicarrier thing at TRU the other day.  It looked a lot smaller than I expected, and kind of silly because it was so small.  It was $69.99.  They had two of them.

Hasbro has already indicated that in 2013, there won't be a "Big One" - or at least not a new mold... I don't know how much influence the MTT's success or failure will have on future big items, but I think for Hasbro, a Sail Barge should be a no-brainer regardless of what it does.  Same goes for a killer Death Star playset.  However, I can see the point of view from retailers not wanting another big ticket item if they lose money on the MTT.

Nice, very nice indeed.  Dare I say, professional looking? 

The diorama/photography are breathtaking as well... some amazing stuff here buddy.

I do want a sail barge but I will let others buy multiple MTTs to "show support".

I am going to try and pick up the slack!   :P  ;D  :-*

I ordered two sets.  Was tempted to get more, but two is enough.

I just want this ship, loose and on display.

A new Gunship, a little larger and with the turrets could be a cool item for next year.  Or just the old mold, with a great paint scheme with the turrets would be fine for my interests.

For next year's big items, I think this would suit the bill well enough:

AT-TE - repack, with sturdy legs, new/realistic weathering, AT-TE Gunner
Gunship - repack, with two turrets, Clone Pilot
Slave One - repaint w/ ESB paint scheme, with carbonite block, Boba Fett and Han Solo

Then I suppose we could see the Turbo Tank repackaged for ROTS... but I still want to see a Sail Barge and Death Star playset.

I thought the figures were $8-$10 each, and the 2pks about $15... if that's the case, I'm in for some of these.  Mostly, as a customizer.  I see some really cool potential here.

Thanks for the feedback.   :)

And I agree, those POP figures were really, really cool.
