Saga Collection '06 / Re: Boring characters... but want to see made.
« on: February 9, 2006, 04:19 PM »
Ok, how about a "least popular" characters thread, but you want a figure of them made anyway.   :)

The Empire Strikes Back - Orange flight suit Luke... imagine with removable Snowspeeder gear... kind of like the Veers snap on armor.  That might not really be a boring character though, so if it has to be boring, then maybe it's time for Ice Cream Maker Guy.

Don't  dis the Ice Cream Maker Guy. He makes the finest flavas throught the galaxy!!  ;)

Saga Collection '06 / Re: SAGA2 HOF waves?
« on: February 8, 2006, 06:53 PM »

Weird... there are some decent selections in here but for the most part I think this is a bad decision, but that's based on the figures they selected.  Nothing wrong with it if the repacks made better sense. 


I think that they could do good with this idea, and I remember some people saying they won't do any sort of HOF assortment.  Wrong!  But it could have been good, unfortunately they missed the boat.

Aren't these all Collection One figures too?


I agree with your sentiments, Chewie, and with everone else's. This wave is the "jump the shark" wave of the year. They're re-releasing figures we all could buy last year without much of a probably, and most of the choices of their so-called "Greatest Hits" were peg-warmers. I wonder where Hasbro thinks that these were the greatest of the RotS wave. There were tons a lot better than these. The only ones I can think of that fit with the theme is Vader and the SA clone.

I believe that the #2 Anakin is going to be the Cantina Han of the prequels and may even surpass Mr. Solo's record!! How many reincarnations has it been now for Ani?? At least four within a year?? *shakes head in disappointment* I guess I will be saving some money when this wave hits.

Perhaps this wave should be call Greatest Misses instead. ::)

Yeah, it seems like a weird selection.  We already were discussing this in another thread (dubbed HOF) so I should probably change the title of that thread to avoid confusion.


I thought of that too, Chewie, after putting this up. Sorry 'bout that...

Saga Collection '06 / Greatest Hits
« on: February 8, 2006, 11:04 AM »
Hasbro's relasing some of the RotS figs as "Greatest Hits", among them, peg warmer Clone Pilot, Anakin #2, Vader (don't we Vader in TSC already??), Destroyer Droid, Yoda, and others. At least they have the #41 for all you customizers. But there are other figs that I think would be better for their "Greatest Hits."

I guess I have to thank hasbro for re-releasing these 10 or 12 figures. That saves me quite a bit of dough.

See front page for me details.

It's nice to see the carded figures! Still a bit disappointed with it though. I was excited about Sora Bulq, but with his knees w/o articulation, it's reminiscent of the E2 figures. The only one I really want is the Utapau clone (no surprise). I don't know why the Geonosian pair are bright green?? The other figures are so-so, or I've already got them.

I collect the cards, too. Most are put in binders now. The only thing is I did a lot of trading to get the ANH ones and I'm still missing some of the orange series and a lot of the stickers. I really havent' been active on the old stuff in a long time, though I did get the Sith sets the past year.

ps, if anybody's interested in trading in some cards, I'm game.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: TSC Recent Purchases

Went to a local Target... looks like they had put out 2 boxes of the Hoth wave just before I got there.

I picked up:

Veers (x2)
Snowtrooper (x2)
At-At Driver

Left R2 and the gonk behind. Got Derlin at a different Target a few days earlier... was the only Hoth guy on the pegs amid the Carkoon wave.

Happy belated Birthday to all of you who've had their birthday's already.

And Happy Birthday to fellow TC JD member Jeff!! Hope you have a wonderful day... I didn't realize we're the same age.

Hey Hasbro! / "Spider" Grievous
« on: January 14, 2006, 03:33 PM »
With Hasbro releasing the Flaming Grievous Target exclusive, why not produce Grievous that can "transform" into the 6-legged spider as he makes haste to escape Obi-Wan? It might make for an interesting figure if done right.

Nute Gunray

Rune Haako

Passel Argente (New Sculpt)

I agree with some of those choices. I'd like to have them because they're all different alien species and they're the "baddies" that were played in a vicious game by Sidious. Senator Dork, as Argente is affectionately know by some, should have been made with the special lightsaber slash damage ala Masters of the Universe when it was released with the final 12... the same with the rest of the Separatist leaders taken down by Vader at Mustafar.  ;)

That would be an interesting figure... and have him or her come with that lava grappler thingie.

Just don't make it so the figure is permanently in that pose.

Hey Hasbro! / Re: NO CHASE FIGURES!!!
« on: January 14, 2006, 03:13 PM »
Yes, don't go the route of the dark side (greed) and throw in chase figures. I agree with my fellow JD members that it would severely affect people's collecting habits. Another thing, it is sometimes difficult to find certain mass produced figures because distribution is not totally wide-spread. I work for a toy store and I know that our store has never received certain waves of non-exclusive SW figures, whereas other stores in the area did. On the other hand, my store received around 20 case of the wave that had the illusive Shocktrooper in it... so you can see that if you begin with the "chase" figure routes, collectors in small metro areas may not even get to glimpse this so called figure.

I think I speak for all of us when I think there should be equal opportunity for all of us to find our beloved characters!
