Did these three cup sets ever come out? Now that we have the three cups from ROTS, it would be great to get them - if just for the cups alone....

Hey - now that there are 3 cups for ROTS and 1 cup for each of the other movies - does anyone know what ever happened with that second wave of OT cups w/figures?

Granted the pack-in figures sucked, but I still would love to add cups for Han, Yoda and Boba Fett to my collection. I wouldn't mind a couple more cups for TPM and AOTC either...

I know the three second wave OT cups were up for sale at Amazon in Japan, but did anyone hear about someone who ordered them and got them shipped to them?

Did anyone else end up with four extra stickers and no spot on the instructions as to where to put them? This annoyed me.

The nice thing about the cockpits though is that I was able to temporarily staff my ARC-170 with three CloneTroopers (#6) quite nicely - they fit in the three spots just fine (nice for a change IMHO)....

I was zooming all over the house with it like a kid!  :D

I can confirm the same - I have all three cups and I opened a set of 'em and they are all identical figures...

Obi-Wan Cup figure = Obi-Wan III-#1
General Grievous Cup figure = Sneak Preview General Grievous
CloneTrooper Cup figure = CloneTrooper III-#6

Ok - so I have all three in front of me now and I don't even see a "code 66" on the EB kit.

I thought you were supposed to be able to figure this out from the packaging, right?

I don't see ANYTHING on the packaging that even remotely relates to a "code" of any kind...

Welcome Anthony - I decided to make the JD switch back in Feb and I haven't regretted it since! You will find the boards here a completely liberating experience compared to the boards over at RS.

I'm glad you decided to join us, I always enjoyed your comments and insight over on the RS forums and I look forward to them here!

- Peter

I agree with Chewie - the PT desperately needs a serious, dramatic, action-intense climax so that it carries the franchise (in story-telling succession) to the OT.

I remember reading an article somewhere after AOTC came out and the author basically was asking 'Would Star Wars have been a phenomenon if Lucas had released TPM first and AOTC second?" (in otherwords, no OT to draw on)

The fact of the matter is that both TPM and AOTC were both riding on the coat-tails of the OT and the lack of new SW movies for so long. If TPM had been the world's first taste of Star Wars, it is quite possible that TPM would have been all she wrote.

ROTS needs to be a movie that makes you go back, re-watch the TPM and AOTC and actually see all of the little hints and build-up events that lead to the fall of the Republic and Anakin. The PT needs ROTS to be its anchor so as a whole, people will one day look back on the PT and say - "yeah, they're a pretty good set of movies that explain how a sweet young boy became Darth Vader" - just like people look back on the OT with fondness - a fondness that, to be honest, is firmly anchored in the Empire Strikes Back - the other movie in the Saga that ends with the dark side having the upper hand.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Collection 1 Figures
« on: April 4, 2005, 01:56 PM »
I didn't see this posted anywhere but did anyone notice that Tarrful has an action feature too? You can twist his torso to one side and it will swing back to the center - almost like a club swinging action feature. Since he comes with the club, it makes sense.

Perhaps I'm just dense and didn't read/hear about this before, but I thought this was a nice little surprise to the figure.

All I would have changed on this figure was to make his knee joints bend as opposed to just rotate.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: The Mustafar Playset...
« on: April 4, 2005, 01:23 PM »
Anyone find this playset yet?  I did not see it anywhere this weekend.

Not out yet - my friend who works for Hasbro had a "later this month" date for both the Battle Arenas and the Mustafar Playset - even he was surprised that some stores got in the Battle Arenas...

I would bet that later this month it will be in. Just like the ARC-170 and Gunship - even those aren't widely available yet.

Same thing is true in my area - the only place I saw the Gunship was at KB Toys - bought one there since KB had it for $29.99 (same price as Target for the ARC-170).

I was able to grab two of the ARC-170s at Target earlier the same morning. Haven't opened it up yet (I like to spread my booty out, I find it much more satisfying than just spending the rest of the day opening EVERYTHING).

I'll probably open it either tonight or tomorrow night. Kinda putting it off since I don't have any Clone Pilots to put in it yet...  :-[

Personally, I am totally jealous of anyone who found figures #33 - #40. While I did have some mild "victories" - I was able to grab all three cups (x2), 2 AT-RTs, 2 Holo Yodas and 1 Pollis Massan and 1 Chopper Droid - I still wish I had been able to haul in a bunch of Clone Pilots.

Now, not only do I have an Obi-Wan & Anakin Starfighter w/o pilots, I also have an ARC-170 w/o three pilots...  :-[

To me - the Big H better come out with a case pack of nothing but Clone Commanders, Clone Pilots and AT-TE Tank Gunners, 'cause EVERYONE wants LOTS of them!

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Diamond Comics Exclusive?
« on: April 4, 2005, 09:56 AM »
Both of the TRUs that I went to (Friday night and then the next morning) had PLENTY cases of the first wave of each collection - they were ALL 12 unique figures per case - in other words if you grabbed one of each collection case, you got figures #1 through #24.

I hardly see how this is an exclusive of ANY kind...

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Deluxe Figures
« on: April 4, 2005, 09:53 AM »
The AT-RT is nice - the walking feature could be better, but it's still neat. I am really pleased with all of the small vehicles - mostly 'cause they come with a "pilot/driver" figure so there's no question about displaying the piece. (for AOTC it annoyed me to no end that there wasn't an Anakin & Obi-wan that would fit in that yellow speeder!)

I had already grabbed the Anakin/Vader, Grevious and Obi-Wan/SuperBattleDroid deluxe figures so all I needed on Friday night was the Deluxe Sidious - that figure is GREAT - a lot of fun to just tinker with. I really think this figure got a really bad rap based on the pictures.

True, it doesn't STAY in the "Evil" mode, but that can be rigged I suppose - you don't want it to stay that way anyway 'cause the batteries will eventually die.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: More Target Exclusives?
« on: April 4, 2005, 09:49 AM »
All-in-all - I would have to say that of all four chains that had exclusives, I am the MOST pleased with Target.

TRU botched their Holo Yoda (granted I got one, but A LOT of people ended up pissed on Friday night)

KB Toys had me buying the EXACT SAME 12" scaled Chewie figure only in different packaging!

WalMart gave us a box of air and the Darth Vader carrying case - AGAIN...

Target on the other hand had the Lava Reflection Vader - which was in plentiful supply (everyone who lined up got one) and they had cup w/figure sets (all three cups are great IMHO) and the micro vehicles (which I passed on, but at least it was something DIFFERENT).

Target also went the extra mile with that $1 coupon that we got in the mail - it brought down figures to $4.99 and I was able to get the cups for $8.99 - not too shabby either.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Holo Yoda?
« on: April 4, 2005, 09:39 AM »
Our local TRU didn't have a MM event, so haven't seen those here.  Are they still possibly showing up on the 10th?  That was sort of what I was waiting for and avoided ordering one online, so hopefully that is the case.

The Holo Yodas weren't supposed to be out at Midnight Madness - they were really supposed to come out on the 10th as a gift-with a $25 purchase.

If your store didn't have a MM and didn't put them out yet, they are probably following instructions and saving them for the 10th.
