The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Vintage Pegwarmers
« on: August 19, 2010, 08:11 AM »
I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro is trying to pressure Dave Filoni to add a scene to the Clone Wars where Anakin has a dream about the future and sees himself as Darth Vader cutting down Jedi - just so Hasbro can justify making an animated version of Vader and then everytime the Clone Wars line reboots, that animated-style Vader will be in the first wave as one of the repacks.

LOL. That sounds believable. And they'd justify it in Q&A answers and flat out refuse to ever re-release the hard to find Aayla Secura or Thi Sen.

I goofed with that link. Sorry guys.

Collect All 92! / Re: Imperial Tie Fighter Pilot

I think I like vintage's pistol better than the evolutions one. I liked him, though he was a neckless wonder.

The POTF2 one still looks cool, because the heroic proportions mean his head/helmet isn't accurately huge. I was playing the TIE Fighter PC game around that time, so that figure really appealled to me.

Also, in some aspects the Saga 2004 version looks better than the evolutions one. Maybe the total black flight suit vs. the charcoal grey flight suit.

There's not a bad version of the pilot, except the Biggs with open face helmet. (I'm not counting Baron Fell.)

I'm not surprised. The 30th annivesary carded 4-LOM actually pegwarmed here enough to go on clearance.

It's reported elsewhere there are some AT-AT's showing up in Canada with retro style "SPECIAL OFFER 2 STORMTROOPERS (Hoth Battle Gear)" stickers that show the Vintage carded snowtrooper from a few years ago, which I guess means they are included.

I haven't gotten the AT-AT yet, so maybe I should hold out for that version.  8)

Luke's Skyhopper would be nice, if they did away with the ejection escape craft.

Skiff redo...which IIRC, they've shot down in q&A's...not having enough kid appeal or something...well, they made the cloud car...so.

And my pipe dream, Imperial troop transporter.

Next year's "BMF"...and you thought it would be like an ESB Slave 1 or that Sail Barge.  ;)

K-Mart has started (?) to clearance their exclusive Clone Trooper 4-pack, the one with Scuba Clone, Red ARC Trooper, Quad Gunner and clone armor Obi-Wan, for $19. They still have a bunch around here. Just need a 50% off sale!  8)

During the presentation, this slide was at the end and time was short, so they just mentioned this one set.  But yes, the slide does say "Saga Vehicles with Figure", which could mean anything.

It could mean a new exclusive assortment of new sets from the movies ('Saga' usually means all six movies, not just OT).  Or, it could be like the last time TRU carried an exclusive "Saga Vehicles with Figure" assortment, which ended up being just a repainted STAP and repainted Speeder Bike.

In other words, you may be right that there will be more, but since there is a high likelyhood that the other sets will just be more repaints/repack sets, no one really cares enough to comment on it.

Odds are there'll be one other set alongside it, like they did with the speeder bike and STAP. If they are wise, it would be the battle pack's gunship ball turret with a clone. But more likely it'll another speeder bike with the Endor Luke from the battle pack, or that Hoth speeder bike  :P.

How about a seperate release of the khaki/tan droid? Or is it because there's only one of that battle droid tooling? I guess they have duplicate clone trooper molds, hence the shock trooper, 501st and white ROTS clone all shipping in Legends at the same time.  Or is it their strange "no new figures on Legends card backs" stance (IIRC, they said something like that)...since changing the color would make them new?

They seem to stubbornly refuse to put VOTC Stormtrooper in legends, acting like the clean Sandtrooper was good enough. Lack of Utapau Clone is strange, given how much attention they give Commander Cody in the regular and especialy in the clone wars series (you'd think they'd reissued his 212th clone there, too).  Run off some of that comic book pack Utapau clone and...who we kidding, they have plan a year in advance for even a simple reissue on a new card.

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: Recent Legacy Purchases

I passed up the Gelagrub set for $12.49 today. It's like buying a clone and a doggie toy. Now that I think about it, could've sold the grub for half the cost of the set, maybe...

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Jedi Turbo Speeder
« on: August 15, 2010, 11:12 AM »
Wait for the purple Mace Windu's Jedi Turbo Speeder redeco, and the Darth Vader Jedi Turbo Speeder, which he used while waiting for his TIE-Turbo Speeder to arrive.  :P


1799
These will be $30 at least. TRU lost its sanity on exclusive pricing years ago. (I'm still not sure what happened to all those Commander Ponds?)

Could've been something like this:

Imperial Commander (Needa in black with At-At Commander legs)
AT-AT Commander (Vintage colors, all dark grey)
TIE Pilot (grey boots and gloves)
Bespin Guard (Sgt. Eidan with caucasian skin)
Could Car Pilot (different colored mustache or possibly dark skinned)
Ugnaught (head swap on the two recent ones, with color tweaks)
Hoth Rebel trooper (beardless)
Wedge Antilles (Snow Speeder, admittedly, not a vintage release, but follows the trend of making Wedge hard to get!)
Luke Skywalker (Bespin, classic Kenner deco...peachy clean uniform and oh-so-blonde)

Just as glad it wasn't. I have a hard time buying big sets and opening collector packaging.
