With Willrow coming soon I am really digging all of the pot bellied figures in the line. They look great as ordinary unheroic characters to compliment dioramas.

Don't let Willrow hear that!  ;) Ya gotta give the ICMG some love! He's finally gona hit shelves!

Ah, good wave  ;D but The Legacy Collection has gotten a 'lil too collector-oriented. Maybe that's why Legacy sales are dropping   ???  I'd most DEFINITELY like to see more exciting characters, though. This wave itself is pretty cool...

The AOTC Obi-Wan looks a but frumpy because of the ball jointed hips and it's too moves too tight/ in an ndexed fashion.

Gotta agree with you ... Obi-Wan's shoulders, elbows, and hips are all WAY too hard to move!  >:(

Second Utai dumped  :(

That's too bad. Although a good figure, I honestly can say I wouldn't have bought the variation. Just different enough to make me mad...   >:(

Does anyone have the certificate for this mail-away? The Hasbro website says the file can't be found....   >:(

The file works now, but will Hasbro accept the five proof of purchases with a printed-out certificate from the website? Or do you need an actual certificate packed-in with one of the upcoming figures? Just asking to play it safe; I don't want to mail in the 5 proof of purchases plus $6-7 and not get that awesome Eopie and Qui-Gon.

Collect All 92! / Vintage-Design EU Figures
« on: August 19, 2009, 02:09 AM »
There have been a lot (A LOT  :o) of rumors that Hasbro would do the Vintage design (VTSC, VTAC) for outside-OT characters (TPM, AOTC, ROTS, EU). How would these figures do? And what would they be? Would this be a good idea for Hasbro? A SA Darth Maul on a reprint of TPM card? Heck, figures thse days certainly have equal value now to the Vintage-designed figures, but would collectors buy these otherwise new figures?  ???

SOOOO news came out that the new boxed sets would be released with some repaints but MOSTLY new figures. Now that's news! Let the speculation begin! (Startin' with me!)  ;D

So maybe we'll get a new Emperor's guard with that lightsaber thingy, with more articulation and significant quality. Shaak Ti's already out (she'll be in an EU-themed wave  :D) So who else is there besides Galen Marek? Hasbro could certainly do a Darth Phobos  :o or Darth Desolus  :o. That would be ideal to be sold in one set.... so who else from this great video game can Hasbro make??

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / 2010 Comic Packs
« on: August 18, 2009, 09:13 PM »
I'm just posting it here to separate it from the 2008-09 Comic Packs thread.

The upcoming Darth Nihl/Deliah Blue seems weird to me. Why not Wolf Sazen in Deliah's place?  ??? Maybe a Jariah Syn/Blue set would have been better? Hmm, Hasbro?
And wattabout the KOTOR set including Jarael? (Looks pretty frickin' good!)
AND has anyone noticed that the cyborg Darth Maul as seen in Visionaries wasn't shown in the SDCC 2009 presentation??!!  :o

The fans respond!  8)

I'm just wondering - the R2-D2 in this set is mostly described as using a superior body mold - how? Does anyone care to elaborate?  ::)

Has anyone scored that new Luke/Lumiya set? And is Lumiya the same color as in the comic...Hasbro said that they would do her that way.

And one question regarding Lumiya (I thought I'd put it here since I'm already talking about her). Luke shoots her ship down, and she's severly injured, which is how she becomes a cyborg. But in the Essential Guide to the Force book, with Luke and Vader on the cover, Lumiya is shown with Vader, and she's being treated by a medical droid. In this pic her body appears whole, even her arms, which are described as cybernetic in many novels, look real - is she a cyborg in this picture? How come she appears relatively unharmed? Did Vader and the droids fix her cybernetic body up to look real? Or is she still 100% organic here?  ???

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: Funeral Pyre Vader w/ Luke
« on: August 12, 2009, 01:48 PM »
I've been under the impression that Luke did burn Vader/Anakin's physical body as we didn't see him pass on or "disappear" into the force as Obi-Wan and Yoda did. And, if Hasbro were to do it right, Vader shouldn't include his right hand since he lost that down the reactor shaft courtesy of Luke.

I don't have a link, but to clear it up for you, if you go to Wookiepedia and search Darth Vader, it says that what was left of his organic body dematerialized. Yeah, we don't see it happen, but he passed on like Yoda and Obi-Wan did (makes you wonder why Qui-Gon didn't). So all Luke is burning is his armor.

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: SDCC Exclusives
« on: August 12, 2009, 01:40 PM »
Looks a little bland, especially the white area behind the figure. Too bad they didn't incorporate a scene backdrop like the OTC/TSC cards had.  :-\

No kidding. That sure is one boring looking card. I didn't like the Legacy cards, and these new ones suck too. I really liked the 30AC cards and the old OTC cards, it's too bad they didn't go back to that.

The cards actually IMO look very neat. I like how the package is smaller, too large packages (like TLC white packaging) look plain strange. As for the SDCC exclusives, the Luke Skywalker was just a stupid idea.   :'( A slot for a different exclusive could have been filled in there. The Luke Skywalker figure should have been a SW Shop exclusive. The choice Hasbro made for the release is strange, but I guess it's what collectors buy. The Stormtrooper Commander figure is a GOOD choice, since many collectors missed out on it. And, actually, one question....

HOW COME HASBRO KEEPS INCLUDING VADER'S LIGHTSABER HILT WITH RELEASES OF X-WING PILOT LUKE??!!  ???

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
« on: August 12, 2009, 01:30 PM »
Bought ... a couple more bearded Hoth Rebels (one with skirt, one without).


I found the exact same thing Saturday morning, wave 6 is still coming in pretty regularly.  Mine came from Walmart.

So far I have found it impossibel to find a skirtless Hoth Rebel trooper!  ??? Where have you found these. All aside, Target is doing pretty well with the Legacy Collection, and there has been no short supply of the AOTC wave. Even now they're still re-stocking that wave, even when the new red/white packaging is about to hit. I already got Obi-Wan and Tarados Gon. There's no need for the Greatest Hits wave for me, as I already have the AOTC Anakin from the Evolution set, and Jango Fett is still going to come a few times more.

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: Funeral Pyre Vader w/ Luke
« on: August 12, 2009, 01:24 PM »
Ahh, that's good to know! This is an interesting "Battlepack". Will be nice to see some close-ups and find out. I know a lot of people have wanted this Vader. And with this pyre, can we expect a Qui-Gon one to follow?

Haha, doing a Qui-Gon funeral pyre would be innapropriate for children, and as such, some parents would feel awkward buying it. :-[ But think about it. The Darth Vader pyre is the essentially burning of his armor, since he passed on to the spiritual plane (if Hasbro makes this, Vader better not have a removable helmet. There's no body in there, it's just his armor and cybernetic bits that Luke burns). Making a Qui-Gon set would be somewhat morbid, since it's the ACTUAL burning of his body. Making a Qui-Gon-on-fire set to sell to kids and collectors would be weird  >:D

Conventions / San Francisco WONDERCON!
« on: August 12, 2009, 01:19 PM »
San Francisco, all the way in California, is pretty far from Toy Fair, but not that far from San Diego Comic-Con. But here, once a year, Wonder-Con draws the attention of endless lines of Star Wars fans! I went twice already, and there I met everyone's favorite Wookie-at-heart, Peter Mayhew. I also saw the man (whose name I forgot  :-[) who officially poses as Darth Vader when it comes to marketing Star Wars. It's a great convention: Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamil once did signings there, there's a great little cafe, and endless rows of booths were you can purchase Star Wars memorabilia! Has anyone been there yet?  ???
