Hardly anyone bought the assualt shuttle at full price and they still made the more expensive MTT.

They made the Shield Helicarrier its a big old flat piece of plastic that doesn't do much of anything.

So...I don't buy the "we won't make____"...it's more what buyers will order, even if previous big ticket items linger.

Got Rogue Two Snowspeeder with Zev Senesca for $10 at a yard sale. Pretty good shape, a few paint rubs. Yeah, its outdated now, but I never had this version of the snowspeeder (undamaged with the flaps).

Another rebel transport speeder at TJ Maxx, mainly because I can't find anything locally to buy. Also, I know some collector will walk into that store see the 3 Geonosian speeders there without the rebel speeder and get mad. Spread the disappointment around... >:D

Even TRU was pretty barren...which is annoying because that means they sold some of the crappy movie hero figures...people bought them, Hasbro will make more.

I want the Holo chess monsters.  On cards.

(Hangs head in nerd shame...)

Those are a totallly untapped area for figures....considering some of the niche-appeal stuff we have gotten (Kul Teska, comes to mind), have gone ignored waaaay too long.

Too limited appeal for mail-away...remember they acted like Sgt. Brick didn't do well enough, kinda doubt they'd have promoted some old librarian to general audiences as a mail-in.

That's why the jacket should be removable...but won't be.

Yeah, as much as I call him Dr Evazan, and I've read the story, I like to just think of him as some minor criminal who picks fights. In fact, I've always thought he was outright lying when he said he had the death sentence on twelve systems. He seems like that kind of guy. I think the real badasses would keep that **** quiet.

In bar where every third person is a bounty hunter, yeah, keeping quiet might be wise.

I still don't understand how some deformed thug who picks fights in a bar is a doctor...even a mad scientist.

I guess he lost his license being drunk in the afternoon and hanging out with criminals, picking fights with the locals.

At least he's not a snot vampire...

My major complaint was that as a toy, you have to be careful not to put your hand under that part of the vehicle, because you might pop the floor loose.

I also detest that control handle on the new AT-AT because sometimes it pop loose without much effort.

Caption: "I'm tired of these banthafoddin' fakes in this banthafoddin' parade!"

Oddly, I looked up Coleman Kcaj, his fate after ROTS is unknown...I find this hard to believe. Shouldn't he have an elaborate EU story?  ;)

Padme's yacht! With pop out spring action cannons and launchable swoop bike!

The thing I like least about the old gunship is that dropping troop platform. I only have a the used space doors version...without a canopy (parts like that rarely come up on ebay). Besides the doors, they added some flip out missile pods to the top cannons, but still kept that detaching floor.  :(

Two rebel pilots in one wave, (Biggs and A wing) Talk about overkill

Toss in Clone Pilot and it's pilot overkill.

I just rarely buy the ships...so pilots interest me less than some folks.

I don't understand this one because there was no actor change...it's just CGI, right?

So what happened to Kcaj...I'm off to wooookiepedia...

I'll be surprised if AOTC 3D is released and there's not a Republic gunship reissue at least.
