Saga '02-'04 / Re: RUMORS FOR 2004!!!!!!
« on: October 16, 2003, 04:51 PM »
I was kind of curious about that as well JediMAC, putting the figure inside the glass...that was on the glass.  I wasn't sure how to feel about the possibly re-release of these glasses either.  On one hand, I had some when I was a kid, but they aren't in the best shape now after years of going through the dishwasher courtesy of my parents...but you didn't think of that back then.  I have actually been looking over ebay the past month or so hoping to pick up the sets little by little.  I can't decide now if I want to keep doing that, or wait and get the "re-releases" at Target if this comes true.  It would be nice to have the originals, but if they are going to be exactly the same, and cost less...I suppose I might go with the Target versions.  It is hard to know what to do, I'm with you, this was always one of my favorite collectibles from Star Wars, and it would be nice to have them all on display.  Hopefully we will find some more details soon.

The wave with Gold leader looks like a good one.  I hope the Han Endor is really something special though.  That last one from Saga was a real disappointment and I've been wanting one either with a coat molded on or a removeable (good) cloth coat for a while.

That's something I'm really looking forward to as well.  I know many people greatly dislike main characters, or resculpts, but I've really been wanting a very well done Han Endor for awhile now.  The 2002 Saga version didn't cut it for me either personally, and I want one with the coat included.  That was my favorite vintage figure growing up, I'd like to see it done the way it should be for Saga 2004.  Hope it turns out!

I noticed this report over at starwarz.com, courtesy of T-Bone.  Kind of an interesting read if you have the time, beware of SPOILERS though :):

OCB, I just found out yesterday that your T'Wolves were playing somewhat near us (Omaha)...wish I would have known sooner, would have been nice to go to an NBA game (we don't get that much here in Nebraska) :)  Last time I went to an NBA game here it was Sonics vs. Bucks, when Shawn Kemp was still good  :P

I think this is potentially not such good news, as this would likely indicate that this already peg warming line will be continuing on further than had been announced previously by Hasbro, which was the end of 2003.  That probably means that it will also be at retail concurrently with the "animated" line of CW figures, as well as the regular Saga line of figures.

That was my biggest fear all along, since I think there's no way in hell the retail shelves and pegs can support 3 seperate Star Wars lines, especially 2 that will probably struggle.  That means that the distribution of the Saga line to retail could be in serious jeopardy if the CW lines are already filling the pegs.  I've even seen a number of stores in my area that have pulled the Saga line completely in favor of the CW line right now...

2004 was looking to be the best year ever.  I pray that the CW lines don't ruin the fun for all of us!

This was exactly my fear as well.  Although I don't hate the Clone Wars line, and I actually picked up the first three this past weekend...Anakin, Yoda, ARC, I definitely don't want it taking up space from the regular Saga line...especially with the figures we have seen rumored/confirmed for next year.  2004 was looking like it could be the best year of collecting since POTJ, and maybe even surpass it.  I know I am really looking forward to most, if not all, of the regular Saga offerings for next year.  That said...a few more Jedi, Dooku, etc. are great ideas for the Clone Wars line, but if this series is going to be taking up space from our "regular" figures, I'd just as soon they put an end to it now.

Also sorry to hear about your dog, my wife and I are dog people, and unfortunately, I have been through losing a pet more times than I would care to. God bless you and your family through everything.  I know how much they can definitely become part of the family.  I know our dog is definitely our "child", we are so happy to have him.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: MORE NEW FOR 2004!!!!!!
« on: October 13, 2003, 03:59 PM »
I was thinking the same thing Simdog, I'd like to see everything listed as well...plus, we might be able to figure out some more of the waves for 2004 if true.  I know I'd like to see a Dagobah wave (Luke, Yoda?), as well as an Endor wave (maybe redos of Endor Luke/Leia, more ewoks, etc.)  Anyways, great news, and thanks again Jimmy for dropping knowledge on us, I know I always keep an eye open for your posts :).

Middle Earth / Re: Lord of the Rings Figures
« on: October 13, 2003, 09:44 AM »
Same thing happened to me TopJedi...this line had been calling to me ever since I first saw them, but I held out...until this year.  I picked up a Rohan Armor Legolas and a Smeagol so far, but I'd like to get some more.  I'll never have as much as I do Star Wars, and SW is always top priority with me collecting-wise, and I don't have the room anyways....but this line does have some mighty nice figures :).

« on: October 13, 2003, 09:40 AM »
I was pretty psyched to see this list as well, especially with the big focus on the OT.  It would just be the icing on the cake if, as someone mentioned above, the focus is due in part to the DVDs being released next year (as rumored).  2004 would just be too great then :).  As far as the figures, I am really excited for all of these.  If they turn out as good as they could be, and in line with what we have seen already for late 2003 and 2004...I really think 2004 could be one of the best collecting years ever.  It seems like Hasbro is really listening to what we have to say, and we're getting much of what we've been asking for over the years.  I know many people despise resculpts of the main characters, but honestly, the versions they are supposedly releasing are ones I have wanted for awhile...Hoth Luke, Jedi Luke, Bespin Leia, Dagobah R2, Skiff Lando, and especially Endor Han.  I've kind of been wanting a non-buff version with a nice trenchcoat...that was my favorite vintage figure as a kid.  Plus, all of the other figures/vehicles sound great too...Ozzel, Lobot, Pablo Jill, Wookie Senator, Ewoks w/ catapult, so much to list.  I really hope that most of this turns out to be true, my wallet's going to be suffering next year if it is though :).

Middle Earth / Re: Lord of the Rings Figures
« on: October 10, 2003, 01:04 PM »
Thanks for the advice HMI, I was kind of leaning towards that version as well...plus hopefully the ROTK figures will be a little easier for me to find, since I'm playing catch up.  I've been thinking about getting the PF Aragorn as well, seems to be the best so far from what I have been seeing/hearing.  Hopefully I can find one or both this weekend :)

Middle Earth / Re: Lord of the Rings Figures

I was curious, I was hoping to pick up a Gandalf (or Aragorn) next...and I was wondering what the differences were between TTT Gandalf, and the ROTK version.  I've seen pics of the Two Towers one, but nothing really of the new release.  I was wondering if one is better than the other, if they are about the same, or any other opinions you guys have on them.  I hope to just get one version of each character for now, so I guess I'm looking for which one is the best.  Thanks for any advice.

Jocasta's Reading Room / Opinions on Infinities?
« on: October 9, 2003, 03:07 PM »
I was curious what any of you comic readers' opinions were on the Infinities series.  From what I understand, the Return of the Jedi Infinities will be starting fairly soon, and from what I have read about this series of books, they sound kind of interesting.  I thought about going back to check out the Empire Strikes Back trade paper back of these, as well as the New Hope ones.  I was just curious if any of you have them, or have read them, and if you enjoyed them?
