The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Hasbro Q&A Sessions
« on: December 11, 2009, 10:25 AM »
Yep, there is going to be a big ole TLC drought next year after that EU Wave hits. I can't imagine having to wait until AUGUST for new figures! That sucks!

I'm wondering if the 32 TCW figures they are counting from spring to fall is the whole batch for 2010 or if it omits stuff coming out in Jan/Feb or Nov/Dec.

And again, quit crying about the Octuptarra Droid, Hasbro. I bought the first one I found and would love to add another, but Walmart seems content to let this gather dust on their shelves rather than drop the price in store. $35 is just too much.

If it's Jocasta Nu we should all demand a recount.  :)

When they say they're not doing it, it usually means they are.  Sail Barge?  It's a long shot, but hey.  Who knows anymore.

I hope you are right...they have been shouting from the rooftops about not tooling the Twilight for the TCW line, and it just doesn't make a lick of sense to me.

But yeah, their denials seem pretty hollow after getting exposed on the Cloud Car.

It will interesting to see how long they last especially since ROTJ has been hitting Target hard.  One thing is for certain CW and SL figs are not moving at that store - it seems like the same ones have been there forever.

A lot of people have had all those TCW figures since October...maybe Hasbro could think about squeezing in a new wave sometime before 2010.  ::)

I don't know what up with the Legends stuff...I never see anyone buying that line; there are TONS of them at our local TRU's and they have literally never gotten in any of the black card TLC line yet. Crazy...

Not sure where else to stick this, but I think this is the right thread.

Hasbro once again denied any interest in producing the Twilight for the TCW line next year. Someone from Jedi Insider asked a really well thought out question about this in the latest round of Q&A, but Hasbro was totally negative about it in their response.

I just don't get their adamant opposition to this vehicle. I think it would do really well with the proper marketing.

Let's hope they are just lying through their teeth like they did about the Bespin Cloud Car though.

From the latest round of Hasbro Q&A, they confirmed:

R4-P17 is definitely coming out in 2010. No plans for Wat Tambor, Nute Gunray, OOM-224 or more Gunship pilots.

Damn, I would really love an animated Wat!

I do think we'll see a Poggle though, wish they had asked about that.

In the latest round of QA, Hasbro confirms 32 TCW figures next year before the package relaunch in the Fall.  ;D

What do you know, I actually won the carded Vebb with my Best Offer. I should have that bad boy in hand by next week...WOOT!

I'm sure I'll still send away for the free one next year, but in the meantime I finally have a new TCW figure to drool over!

Happy Hannukah!!!

Found the new BPs (Gelabrub, Geonosis Gun thingy...). I noticed that the Geonosis assault set was under the 'The Clone Wars' logo, instead of Legacy Collection.' :o Weird.

You must have come across an old one in the Blue/White packaging then. The ones shipping now are in the Red/White packaging and have been corrected with The Legacy Collection label. I grabbed 2 of the TCW ones because I wanted these bad boys for my gunships and it was an easy way to justify the expense.

I saw the Kamino conflict BP for the first time tonight at TRU...some pretty weak sculpts, IMO.

So just for kicks I submitted a Best Offer on the carded Vebb currently on eBay. The seller is US, so I'm less skeptical than I might normally be trying to snag something this far in advance. The Buy It Now price was $37.99, which is totally absurd, but I'm curious how much less he would actually be willing to take. I don't expect he'll bite on my price, but it never hurts to try.

I believe I may have 1 or 2 of those vintage pieces I can let go...I will check tonight. I have several loose pieces from the Star Destroyer and Ewok Village sets that are superfluous.

These or the non-exclusives?

From Galactic Hunter:

"Walmart Comic Packs: 2010
12/8/2009 9:04:58 PM | Reported by Adam
The new Hasbro Wal-Mart Exclusive Comic Packs are not going to ship in 2009 according to our friends at Hasbro's PR firm. Expect them some time in the new year, most likely Spring."

So I guess it is just the exclusives that have been pushed back...

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: 2010 Swamp Speeder (Rumor)?
« on: December 9, 2009, 09:45 AM »
Correct me if I'm wrong, but how so? Doesn't everything that's not a figure (BP's, Mid sized ships, OT exclusives) have the same design with the clone troopers on? I know that the At-Te and Turbo Tank come with CW figures, but that still doesn't say to me that they're CW specific.

Well, one is clearly marked "The Legacy Collection" and one is marked "The Clone Wars". It's right on the front of the box above the photo and below the item name. The box size and coloring are very similar though.

Aw heck, I went ahead and bought Willrow and Zuckuss from the new ESB Wave. I sort of hate spending $$ on TLC stuff that I really don't need, but there's nothing else new out right now and I miss buying new toys. $12 was hard to pass up too.

I love the insider geek appeal of Willrow, I brought him to the office today to set up next to my computer.

Zuckuss is just one of my all time favorite characters. I am actually thinking about starting a Zuckuss focus, since I already have the vintage fig and 12" version.

Stop the teasing. Lets get 'em in the stores.

Apparently Hasbro just announced these are not shipping until 2010.   :(
