Saga '02-'04 / Re: What's up with availability
« on: June 3, 2003, 12:51 AM »
All of you guys have detailed what's wrong with the current situation better than I could, so I'll just say that from a retail point of view, the SW ship has been sinking since '98.  This pattern of glut, Hasbro dudes coming to the stores and clearing them out for new product has happened how many times now?

And who's fault is that?  Hasbro does terrific things with SW - I'm so glad they're making SW toys - but their production management (case assortments, over-production) is puzzling.  Now, it would have killed any other line by now.  These retail fluctuations have been going on for five years, and maybe Hasbro has found an acceptable level of comfort with them.

Me, I just learned to buy online.

I agree with MisterPL.  I'm on your side about the trading/selling issue, Jango Fettish, but the banner may have been a bit much...

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What else do you collect?
« on: June 2, 2003, 05:43 PM »
All but Spike.   :(

I can't afford to pay $75 for him on Ebay, so... distribution here is awful.  I wish someone else would get the license.  MAC is a truly awful company.  The figures (such as they are) are nice, but their PR leaves a lot to be desired.

I used to haunt RS quite a bit, but for many of the reasons already stated here, I don't much anymore.  Let's just say I'm oh so glad I found this place.

My main other haunts would be:

www.thewriter.net
www.bufffybb.net

I also lurk around GH, TheForce.Net, www.lordoftheringsguide.net, the Simpon's Collector Sector, some others.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: I want a new TF Droid Starfighter!

I'd like one of these, too.  Although if we ever get another, I have a feeling it will be the walking one from E1 thrown in a TRU 4 pack of some kind or another.

If Hasbro wanted to do a Pod Race Hanger type of set, they could probably kit bash a Nikto Pod Mechanic, or an Ishi Tib one, a Twilek massuess, something like that.   ;D

My Nexu is also in good shape, Jesse.  Sorry to hear about yours.  I would be very upset.   >:(

Welcome, Topjedi!  This place is the best by far.

You get banned Jango Fettish?  Didn't know that.

In addition to SW, I collect:

LOTR
Simpsons (but not so much anymore)
Buffy (if they ever get around to putting more out...)
NASA Space Shuttle toys/replicas
Any kind of spaceships.  I LOVE spaceships.   ;D
And the odd piece here and there.  

I'd love to collect Marvel Legends, but I just don't have the money or the space.  I do have a little space for Beast, though.   :)

« on: June 1, 2003, 05:32 AM »
Scout Troopers, definitely.  Snowtroopers, Stormtroopers, I sense a pattern here...  ;D

And Rebel Pilots, too.  And more Jedi.  And handmaidens.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Mysterious Jedi 4 pack
« on: June 1, 2003, 12:35 AM »
GH updates to say this is definitely a TRU style 4 pack.  No ETA given.  Boy, I hope it is a WAY early mock-up.  I hold out hope the Plo Koon ends up being the POTJ one repainted arena style.  Sigh.  I had such high hopes for a set like this.  Imagine the possibilities!  

Grr, argh.

That would be awesome, Chewie.  I was trying to think of a 'theme' myself, but couldn't.  They could maybe also squeeze in some of the missing engine parts from that long lost E1 Queen's Starship accessory pack, remember?

I can't get to the site either, Dustrho.  Here's a direct link, also not working at the moment:

The figures pictured are Obi-Wan Kenobi Coruscant Chase, POTJ Saesee Tiin, Nikto Jedi and Saga Plo Koon along with 4 lightsabers, assassin droid and Geonosis detention device.
