The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: The Future of the Clone Wars Toy Line?
« on: October 5, 2012, 05:01 PM »
You know, it just occurred to me, that Lego is supporting the Clone Wars, and has some more new sets this winter.  If Lego's able to make money off the show, why can't Hasbro?

I've always been surprised that they never did the Lars family speeder.  It's aggressive looking, small, and would be easy to hide some sort of missile feature in.  That's my vote.

I wasn't planning on buying him, but when I saw him on the pegs, on avinatge card, I had to.  And I was really surprised how much I like this figure.  Good one, Hasbro.

81
Just a thought...what if figures came with a stand that had a QR code on it.  Then you could scan it and see...maybe  a scene from a movie?  Stats about the character?  I dunno...but I think it's a great idea!

That is good advice.  I agree with being polite and considerate - and that life is too short to be spent picking fights.  But I don't believe that the fact that someone has been here longer or their post count is higher excuses rudeness either.

You're right Tracy.  That point didn't really make sense, and I flubbed it.  I was only pointing out how new Mace was to the forums.  My bad.

Ric Olie?  Ric Olie?  Now you're picking on the Ric?  Dude, that is beyond trolling, that's cave trolling!  Without Ric Olie, we would have never known that Courascant was covered in city, or that the pitch controls make the ship go this way and that!  He's classic!

Mace, I don't know where you were before April 30, 2012 but I really want to let you know that you don't seem to be getting the vibe here at JediDefender.  We are all collectors.  We all have our own styles of collecting.  We have, over the years, become friends. Many times, if we disagree with each other, we keep our mouths shut because that is what a polite and considerate person does.

For some reason, you have taken on Force Guy, who has been coming here since 2003, and has over 1100 posts. 

This thread, and your attitude, is just a drag. Who knows, maybe you're 15.  I don't know.  Just lighten up, and be friendly.  Life is too short to spend it picking fights.

Gentle Giant / Re: And The Mystery Ent. Earth Exclusive Is....

Hate to break everyone's bubble, but it is a set of Jabba's goons from the Special Edition Scene of Episode IV.

Don't even joke about that.  I would love a set like that so much that I would tattoo "I love Hasbro and Entertainment Earth" on my forhead.

In fact, why would speedermike be asking folks who are already selective with their figure purchasing if they're going to remain selective based on the relatively boring waves 1 & 2 of the new 2013 line?  Aside from the obvious B-A-D aspect (which Mike isn't emphasizing), that'd be a borderline stupid and seemingly repetitive question.

Um, I've been nothing but civil in this discussion and don't really appreciate my question being called "borderline stupid."

Part of me felt like i was abandoning something i have loved for so long but the interest and obvious year of re sculpts isn't doing it for me.

I feel the same way.  It's odd, really.  It's been my hobby since 1995, and earlier.  And here it is, the point that I just might stop...it just might fade away into dullness.  I think that's why I started this thread, because this is actually bringing up strong feelings in me.  Like moving on from a best friend, or moving from a town you loved...

Who knows, maybe at ToyFair they will show something interesting and this will just be a phase.  I'm still not buying the droid factory line...

88
Yeah.  I still want that Mon Cal officer type guy with the big pouches on his belt.  He's right next to Ackbar when he talks about the Death Star.

Personally, I hate when non-canonical material rewrites the established Star Wars history.  As it is, the PT already does that.  With Clone Wars, it does this on a much larger scale, IMO.  I just don't care for the series at all.

I kinda see your point, but to me, these are more "pure" than any comic or novel or game, because they come from Lucas himself.  And, since I gave up on the novels, comics and games, because they seemed less "Star Warsy" year after year, I don't see any contradictions.

Spirit of Mace...the word "wealth" really may mean different things to different people, I don''t think it's worth arguing over.  And, yes, I do see a wealth of ideas.  Let's say that we can come up with only 10 new, unmade characters from each film.  That's 60 figures right there. 10 a year would keep me interested for 6 more years!

And, you know what, I love the figures you have to freeze frame to see.

Force Guy, why do you hate The Clone Wars?  Have you seen it recently?  While there are some bummer episodes (like all TV) I think that when it's on its "A" game, it comes closer to the spirit of the OT than the prequels ever did.  It can be exciting, funny, and thoughtful. 

Spirit Of Mace, I agree with what you are saying about most of it being resculpts.  I understand that and have accepted it.  However, I can think of many, many figures from the films that have not been done.  And I think that making a wave that does not have at least one never before made character is a slap in the face to the die-hards.  It creates zero excitement.

And what I don't really understand is the need to resculpt.  Lets say Hasbro wants to release an ANH wave.  Let's say they want to put out eight figures in this wave.  They already have excellent sculpts of Luke, Han, Chewie, Vader, Stormtrooper and R2.  They don't need to spend a dime on them.  Then make two new characters, such as one of the guys who is with Jabba in Docking Bay 94, and perhaps an Imperial officer with the white top.  Families and kids would buy the first six, collectors would grab the last two.  I just can't see why this sort of system couldn't work.
