Shadows of the Dark Side / Re: 2010 Saga Legends Figures
« on: September 15, 2010, 09:40 AM »
I don't see why they have to play the victim in that relationship. As the client, they should have ALL the leverage. "Hey, start doing a better job making our toys or we will take our business elsewhere". Enough of this wag the dog stuff.

But they aren't the victim, they are the partner.  They already accomplished what they set out to do; which is to get us (the consumer) to buy the figure.  As loud as collectors complain about these detail things, we aren't the largest portion of Hasbro's sales and we certainly aren't the largest portion of the Saga Legends sales (given what currently in that mix).  Frankly, I don't see a little kid really caring that this battle droid has big eyes, when he's fighting against a Clone Wars Anakin.  So Hasbro and the factory, and the retailer, have all gotten paid, so no one is going to rock the boat by threatening to cancel the contract over what amounts to tiny details.  As long as the factory makes the number of units and charges the price agreed upon, the rest is just detail stuff, which is worked out by Hasbro asking the factory to make a change to all future units.

Where do you get to sit on your flight?  I'm guessing you don't have free reign to move around the plane while in flight....

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: JD Book Club: What Are You Reading Now?

Just finished The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance by Sean Williams, who also wrote the novel The Force Unleashed.  Overall I like Fatal Alliance a lot better, granted he had to frame a novel much more around the existing story line for FU (I'm not familiar enough with the MMORP to say the same about FA), which I think really limited what he could do, particularly with fight sequences.  Fatal Alliance was much better about this and was quite enjoyable.

I found at the Pre-Viszla and Mando pack at Target today.

Has it been discussed anywhere what the Kohl's AT-ST pack will be priced?

I got the postcard yesterday as well.

LEGO / Re: LEGO 2010
« on: August 30, 2010, 11:23 AM »
I got the Wampa set at Goodwill over the weekend.  I think the local Targets donate items that don't sell at clearance or are damaged by customers to Goodwill as in the past I've seen a number of LEGO sets there, but ones that had been opened.  At first I was going to pass on the set, because I expected that baggies had been opened or were missing.  But box hadn't been resealed/taped, so I could check that all three bags were intact and inside (also the little bag with just the Wampa).  It was missing the instructions, but I found them online.  So I got the $40 set for $20.   :)

I was looking at a couple different examples of Bossk over the weekend (there was more variation between the spots on his head than i had expected) and I thought it looked like the weapons packs varied between the three Bossks in my hands, thanks for the info.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Why does Vader Die?
« on: August 24, 2010, 02:43 PM »
So it would be really easy to kill Vader with an EMP burst. So if Vader's star destroyer was hit with an ION cannon pulse, his ship would be disabled and Vader would be dead.

Hence the giant nipple gun on Hoth....

It certainly doesn't account for most of the variation in colors, but aren't there scenes in Empire where Luke is wearing a flightsuit with noticably different colored pants and jacket?  Or am I recalling a behind the scenes shot?  I figured it was just them being a rag tag band, etc.  The Imperials did manage to standardize their colors, Hasbro just can't recreate that....

The Vintage Collection / Re: Jon Stewart Trooper

I could see Stewart auctioning this off for charity.  Else a limited exclusive thru the Daily Show's website to benefit a charity would be cool.

Shadows of the Dark Side / Re: TRU Deluxe Yavin IV Tech and Sled

In other words, you may be right that there will be more, but since there is a high likelyhood that the other sets will just be more repaints/repack sets, no one really cares enough to comment on it.

I guess i'll just continue to delude myself that they would release the Hoth Hanger Sled   ;D

I haven't watched the video, but at Hasbro's presentation did they explicitly say that they are only re-releasing the Sled & Tech?  I'm thinking I missed something because i'm the only one reading the presentation slide expansively to say that this will be part of an assortment of OT vehicles...

Poodoo..

Are the droids the new "corrected" size?

The one that comes with Grizz does have the pop up periscope, which the Bar-2D2 also has....

Agreed that compared to the value of the previous release we aren't making out great if these are $20, but I still think that's a better deal than getting a Battledroid and STAP for that price....

I saw some pics on Jediinsider and the slideshow hinted that this might be one of a couple vehicles released...   I think...

Edit: The presentation says (emphasis mine) "Saga Vehicles with figure"...
