Revenge of the Sith / Re: Battle Packs (5 figure sets)
« on: July 13, 2005, 01:28 PM »
As expected, here's my cynical and pessimistic prediction:

1.  Battle Pack 1 ships to retail in a case by itself.  These sell moderately well, and retailers reorder the next case in twice the amount they ordered the first.

2.  Battle Packs 2 and 3 ship to retail in a case that also includes another Battle Pack 1.  After initial sales to carded/boxed completists, the Battle Packs begin to sit.

3.  Battle Pack 4 (the Hoth pack) ships to retail in a case that also includes more of Battle Pack 3 (the OT one, which will be the worst selling one of the initial three, IMO), and due to the lackluster figure selection of the Hoth set, and the increasing glut of the OT set, the fourth case assortment never makes it to retail.

4.  Hasbro cancels the fifth Battle Pack (the one that everyone wants out of the five anyway; once again, Hasbro wastes the best for last) citing lack of retail support and/or collector interest, and three years from now, they finally release the 501st Clone as a single carded figure in the regular action figure line.

I hope that doesn't happen, but I'm not going to touch the first four Battle Packs with a ten foot pole (damn you Lisa and your restraining order!  I shall burn an effigy of you with the school bullies!), and the fifth is the only one that I'm at all interested in.  Naturally, it will be the most difficult to find of them all.

This sums the whole battle pack line up in a nutshell.

Revenge of the Sith / Secret Figures!?
« on: July 13, 2005, 01:23 PM »
I've heard some rumblings about what are being called 10 secret figures. Has anyones else heard sbout these? The theory is that the #6, 33 and 34 repaints are three of them. Anyone?

Wouldn't a #6 clone have more working parts though? What kind of configuration and or mechanizm is used to get the quickdraw action?

Saga Collection '06 / Re: The Future of Star Wars Collecting
« on: July 12, 2005, 02:17 PM »

This is really the way I see it - the upcoming ATTAKUS Line that is going to have some stuff in the 3-3/4 scale is probably going to be extremely expensive and that Death Star scene is going to be out of the price range of most.


Not to mention all the spacial issues. :P

I'm not into the uber-expensive stuff, but this line is really tempting. Is it 3 3/4" or close to? I've head they can't do a proper/exact 3 3/4" scale due to conficts with Hasbro's rights to that scale. Is this true or am I getting improper info?

Saga Collection '06 / Re: VOTC and OTC Returns in 2006!

Some figure could stand to be repacked, but they never seem to re-pack the right ones like Motti or even Sio Bibble. I'm hoping that the packaging samples that these are being peported form are still a work in progress because I'd love to see the Barada from Luke and Han's Skiff in stead of the one we already have.

Found A VOTC Boba Fett at Target this morning. The clearance price was $0, but they charged me $5. :P Still, not a bad trade item.

Okay, here's the rub-  Remember how easy it was to get Eopie?

These sets are numbers 4 and 5. What happens when the first three sets don't sell well? It's the same thing over and over again. The Hoth and Jedi Tempel set have the potential of selling well, but they come after lame sets like the Jedi Vs sith and Rebels Vs Empire packs.  :P

Can you give us an idea of the pairings you saw Anton?

Regarding the Bail/Bail pack,  I saw it and it was obviouly swapped out in the store with the Clone gunner.

From memory, here goes the list of pairings,

Bail/Gunner
Chooper droid/Polis
Agen/Shaak
Agen/Mas
Plo Koon/Saesee
Luminara/Ki-Adi

Edited to refect more accurate pairings.
