Collections / Re: KNASHDX's Collection

Great collection, knashdx! Nicely organized as well. :)

So far I know that one Toys R Us is doing it; I'm on board, but it's a bit of a drive from where I live. If one happens closer to home I'll defect.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS Product Leaks: Already?

Last Saturday I went to a convention and one dealer had roughly a dozen basic figures for $10 a pop. He said he found them in some store.

I didn't buy any, for two reasons:
--In a month or two they'll be everywhere, and I'd be kicking myself for overpaying.
--That's the textbook definition of scalping, and I'm not going to support such behavior. I did get $40 of POTF2/EpI/POTJ/CW merch, which likely came from stores as well, but I rationalized that somehow it doesn't count because the stuff is so old now. ::)

Rebelscum reports $19.99 apiece at TRU.

So far I've only found the ROTS lightsabers.

If I found leaks in a store, I'd sure as hell buy them. But I'm not going to pay through the nose on the secondary market for figures that will be everywhere in a month's time. I'm eager for them to get here, but not that impatient.

And just for kicks ... PM me, Zod, for I am curious. :)

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?

The cost to tool 3 molds (or more) for 3 figures like they did with the AOTC 3-packs though would actually run the company more.

Can't they just pop new heads onto the previously molded bodies?

Yeah, with what we are getting in the basic figure line with some really well articulated figures, I do think a ROTS 3-pk would be nice to fill out dioramas a little cheaper.

Agreed. I don't need loads of SA troopers when most of them are just going to stand around looking badass. 3-packs serve that function just as well, and are much cheaper per clone.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: 2005 RotS Figures Release List

Scroll down for a list of all toys, vehicles, figures, Unleashed, with some cool new items (like Clone 3-packs (yay!!!) and a "bigger gun" Spider droid). Beware of SPOILERS.

I'm planning some army-building with the clones, however for the basic infantry I'll only get a couple at first. I'll wait until the different versions are out--regular, Super Articulated, "Mission Specific", 3-packs, etc.--before I go ape**** on any one model. For example, I don't want to get stuck with loads of the first basic CT if a later sculpt turns out to be better.

I don't remember if there were any MM sales here in Minnesota the last two times. Besides, for EpI I was just 13, and for EpII I was 16 but without a drivers license. My parents wouldn't have driven me even if there was a MM event.

But this time I'm 19 and I can drive myself if there is a MM. ;D 8)

I'd do a separate Clone evolution 3-pack and include an ARC trooper in it (or Republic Commando even?) with an E2 and E3 Clone...  I'd also do a separate pack then of Stormtroopers showing a Stormie, Snowie, and Scoutie.

Oh man, that is a fantastic idea, Jesse. A clone pack would get large quantities of my money ;) and I'd get at least one Stormie pack.

Muftak's McQuarrie concepts idea is excellent as well.

I'm very interested in knowing the answer to this question as well, as I intend on getting these, and need to know if they're NOT coming to the U.S. eventually...

Took the words out of my mouth. Or, y'know, off of my keyboard, or whatever....

Anyway, I'm passing on Obi-Wan and the ARC because, as I mentioned a few posts above, I'm waiting for the repack sets so I can get the first Anakin as well. With my luck, we won't know for sure that they're not coming until after the singles have left stores.  ::)

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC & VPTC
« on: February 24, 2005, 12:36 AM »
For my money, VOTC is ridiculously overrated and overpriced for what they are ... particularly considering I didn't need any more figures of those characters. And I'm not paying an extra $5 for the stupid card and clamshell.

The only one I bought was Chewie, and only because I'm army-building a horde of Wookiees to recreate the ROTS battle. :D

That being said, there's a few figures I would like to see in SuperArticulate form (either in a VPTC collection or in whatever Saga line follows ROTS):

* Battle Droid that can actually stand without assistance, and can achieve multiple stances--kneeling, etc.
* Tusken Sniper that can stand upright, kneel, or lay down

* Tusken Raider
* Clone Trooper (simply a massmarket rerelease of the CW Super Articulated CT)

Clone Wars
* Anything at all would be A-OK by me. Ventress sounds good though. And I definitely wouldn't turn up my nose at Clone Armored Obi-Wan.

* Wookiee Warrior
* Perhaps General Tarfful
* New SA Clone Trooper

* Sandtrooper (with variant shoulder boards)
* Tusken Raider

* Yoda spirit
* Ben spirit
* Anakin spirit -- Sebastian Shaw dammit, not that ridiculous Hayden version ... *grumble grumble*

Awesome! *gets tingly all over*

Now what would really rock my world is an expansion on the movie-style Clone Wars figures, but I don't see that happening ... ever.... :'(
