30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Hasbro Figure Stands
« on: June 4, 2007, 08:42 PM »
FYI: there are a couple omissions and errors on the labels for the Hasbro Stand pack.

After careful examination I've noticed:
1. No label for TAC Airborne Trooper
2. Only one Biggs Label (should have at least 2 to cover boths TAC releases)
3. "Nemoidian" Warrior label should be Ne(i)moidan
4. Plo K(l)oon label should be Plo "Koon"
5. No labels for the Astromech droids from the 2 Astromech Sets
6. Luke is underrepresented considering the 3 TAC basic carded figs the VTSC X-wing, VTSC Bespin and the 2 Comic Pack figures
7. No Vader's Medical "Chopper" Droid

It's just a part of Lucas' revisionist attitude, that's all.  ;)

Thanks to Paul for hooking me up with the Purchase of the Droids set for a cool, low price! Now I have my Uncle Owen!

There was even a Hasbro rep at the WM I hit who watched in horror as I tore through her freshly stocked display.  I even asked her about the Robot Heroes exclusive WM 5 pack and she had no idea what I was talking about.  ::)  I was the first TF buyer there so she even pleasantly escorted me to the register - that was cool  8)

I wonder if this is the same Hasbro rep (I assume it may be unless this one's moved on to better things) that I used to chat with when I was spending more employment time at TRU. She was very nice and would take notes on concerns I made about SW product to send them to HQ, interested that I knew so much (not more than most of you) about it. She was so impressed by my interest that she gave me a Hasbro/RotS April 2nd Midnight Madness pin that she said each rep only got 2 each in their area.

Off with their heads?  ;)

Whats really cool is I swapped the heads of the comic Han and Luke to have plain white versions. Its the same tool so they fit perfect!

That's good to know!!  :D ;D

Just trying to lighten up the mood on this thread.

Thank the Maker It's Friday!!  ;D
(I'm with you, Ice Ice Baby!)

I agree, Mike. We (used in loose general terms) can piss and moan and threaten to leave, but we're (still used in loose general terms) just a few in a legion of thousands. A few people that leave aren't gonna be missed by Hasbro.

I just got word from a fellow collecting bud who ordered these. He had to talk to two people and eventually got a supervisor. That supervisor said they would send him some $3 off coupons to be used in store only.

So before you hang up with them if you call, ask to at least get some coupons for your trouble. It's just as good as the next thing.

And it's not like we aren't going to shop for toys again...

Not a perfect solution, but you get your money back in some form at least.

I got one of those coupons once when I call to complain that the peg on the Saga Sandtrooper that I bought was broken upon opening. They informed me that they didn't have the spare part, but would send me a coupon. I was satisfied with that result. Not really the same deal though.

2859
At least it isn't the "Who's your daddy?" pack with Anakin and Padme.  ;)

The pace of figures shipping should be picking up.  Hasbro talked about this a bit in their panel at C4.

Why? They finally got rid of all their Saga figs?  ;)

9ish/10. Some podracers in my 2-packs didn't make it.

2862
This one is hard because there are so many to choose from.

1. Padme Amidala (Meadow Picnic)
2. Padme Amidala (Lake Retreat)
3. Padme Amidala (Nightgown)
4. Beru Whitesun
5. Owen Lars
6. Cliegg Lars (with hoverchair)
7. Padme Amidala (Senator)
8. Padme Amidala (Going Home)
9. Po Nudo
10. Joclad Danva

I'm guessing the Lars family and the various Padmes will doninate the lists once again... just make them already dammit!

I agree with your sentiments, Jeff. Let's get the Lars family and the Padme's made so we can vote on the many background Jedi, Separatists and SA characters to do (Zam and other main characters)!

I didn't even know the dude had a name. I thought the figure with the new Y-Wing looked a lot like Jimmy Neutron. 

There's probably a name for every SW background character. Most get their names from the CCG, I assume. If you go to Wookiepedia: A New Hope page, you'll see some names that are unfamiliar. That's how I found out his name was Lt. Lepira.

2864
I had no Idea there were that many people snagging just figures without Vehicles.  I got no less than 10 requests.

Yep, that's the way I got my Zev. I'm not a vehicle buyer, but try to get the pack-in figure if possible. I assume there's more of us out there that do that.  ;)

I wish I had known about this thread sooner, I would have asked if someone could have picked up a couple of droid packs

You can take my droid packs - assuming they came through.  We had one local MN boy who actually came through with a ton of extras.

+1. Our boy came through better than expected with all those "limitations" of 1 per day on the droid.
