Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?
« on: June 15, 2003, 04:34 PM »
I'm disappointed in the Super Battle Droid.  I'm only getting one of these droid sets anyway, but they could have given him the firing pose arm.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Post Episode III
« on: June 15, 2003, 04:33 PM »
I don't think there will be so dramatic a drop off in interest after E3 that SW will just die at retail.  A lot depends on the fatigue and commitment of the collector base, which has been large enough to sustain the line after disatrous flame outs before.  SW would disappear between films at retail if not for this base; every other line does, and no other line has this staying power.

As for a third trilogy, I wouldn't mind it, but I can't imagine how Lucas would approach it.  One thing I'm sure of is that SW will not disappear without a trace.  Cartoons, TV shows, books, comics... it will survive.   ;D

Right on, Chewie.  Internet all the way for me until this thing works itself out.  And even then, I don't know.  I've been ordering on line since the fall of 2001, because of the POTJ distribution problems, so...

CHUN LI!!!!!!  ;D

It could end up like E1/POTF2, but then that was four assortments retailers were dealing with, and this is two.  Both have obvious distinctions (CW=kids, Saga=collectors) so it may not be that bad.  Unless of course this nonsense with not being able to find figures continues.

I think they know the collector base will asorb that many figures a year, but that means you have to get them out in a regular fashion.  Like everyone else mentioned, it's June, there's nothing doing.  There's either going to be a massive glut of backlogged 2003 stuff about to hit (further delaying current and future releases) or we're just never going to see it.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Some Walmarts NOT carrying Star Wars now!

I think those Obi/Jango Deluxe figs are doomed at retail.  No one's stocking them, and Target skipped them altogether.  Now we have the CW 3 packs replacing them shortly.  I'm glad I ordered from Newforce.

2993
I think Saga will do just fine, and both will continue into next year.  Hasbro is going to use the CW line to broaden its EU horizons.  I bet you a dollar we're going to see figs like Quinlon Vos next year.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Amy Builder 3-packs pics.....
« on: June 11, 2003, 03:52 PM »
I may just wait for the three colors version of the Clones, since I don't need a bunch of clones myself.  One Droid set and two Jedi sets, one for customs.  This is a great idea, at a great price, and I hope they go forward with these sets into the future.

It's really stand out.  I really like it.  Kudos to Hasbro.  These Unleashed figures get better and better all the time.
