Repacks that you'd like to see in 2006?
« on: January 4, 2005, 11:46 AM »
I know, I know.  Most people hate repacks.  Usually I'm one of them, but I think that a few are healthy for the hobby. 

For those in favor of the idea, what figures would you like to see repacked maybe in 2006 so you could purchase them for army-building, customs, finally getting at a fair price, or want to see on a nice cardback, etc.  I'd like to see the following for openers/customs/army-building, and will include some PT figures as well, since some are on POTC cards anyway now:

TPM

- Sio Bibble
- Amidala (accension gun)
- Pit Droid 2-pk
- Darth Sidious (holographic)

AOTC

- Battle Droid (red)
- Amidala Factory Chase (new head)

ANH

- McQuarrie Stormtrooper
- Death Star Droid
- CT Leia
- TIE Pilot
- Imperial Officer (4th head)
- Obi Wan (Dagobah spirit painted like a normal figure)
- Stormtrooper Han (use CT or VOTC Stormtrooper body)
- Stormtrooper Luke (use CT or VOTC Stormtrooper body)

ESB

- Bespin Guard (2nd head)
- Bespin Guard (3rd head)
- Ugnaught 2-pk (repainted slightly)
- AT-AT driver (TIE Pilot repainted)
- Stormtrooper (CT version I guess, but VOTC would be better!)

ROTJ

- Jedi Luke (just a great figure, so why not)
- Gamorrean Guard (w/ new articulated wrists)
- Teebo (repainted into a different Ewok)
- Ree Yees
- Ishi Tib
- Ephant Mon
- Amanaman


Ok, that's 26 repacks... kind of a lot.  But I think they would sell.

I say no re-packs, we had enoguh this year. The number of classic figures we get this year will be diminished because of ROTS so we should get completely new figures when it comes to the classic movies this year. NO REPACKS!!!!!

They could package Amidala ascension gun on a blank piece of cardboard for all I ******* care.  It's the only basic figure I still need.

Wait...  is this thread for 2005 or 2006?

Oh well, I'll do BOTH.

2005 - NO REPACKS!  It's a prequel movie year, so if we get ANY OT figures, they should be NEW.

2006 - I wouldn't mind a few repacks to keep the line going past RotS's run at the theaters.  But no more than 50% of the line should be repacks though!  And they should be figures we haven't seen 1000000 times (like CT Han).  I'd like to see more of the vOTC figures, CT R2-D2, and a few others...

It's meant for 2006.  I figure in 2005 we'll see more than enough ROTS stuff.   :)

And mostly the ones I'd like to see are either army-builders or of hard to get figures, or modified (like head variations on army-builders). 

Who would really be against the McQuarrie Stormtrooper being easier to get?

Some figures I'd like to see again, off the top of my head...

Holo Sidious for sure
Muftak (I'm maybe a little biased on that one)
Saga Tusken Raider
Pote Snitkin (with new deco)
Ten Nunb (in red)
Death Star Droid (variant colors)
Ree-Yees (new deco)
Zuckuss
Amanaman
Oola
Jawa & Gonk
Admiral Motti

(and I like the repainted Spirit Obi-Wan idea, it has to be done eventually)

There are many other characters I'd like to see revisited, but most of them could really use a resculpt. After all, we don't want another Bib Fortuna on our hands...

I'd definitely buy all of those Muftak.  And yeah, why not re-release Muftak and Kabe in deluxe box, and include a bar table.  Or some sort of Cinema Scene with the Tonnika Sisters.  Count me in.

I'd like to see Hasbro make a run of figures without any repacks.

Hey, I can dream, right?

I would not mind them repacking some of the VOTC figures for a cheaper price.  Insted of repacking Han Cantina they could repackage the VOTC version instead.  You know, because I am cheap like that.

Han and Luke in Stormtrooper disquise using the VOTC body sounds like a good repack to me. 

Ree Yees would be nice. 

The Death Star Trooper by himself. 

Paploo from that POTJ vehicle set. 

Biker Scout Clean - I still have not see this variation in the stores from EITHER the POTJ or the OTC lines. 

Luke Bespin (clean)- Did not see him anywhere so I'd take another repack of him. 

Clonetrooper from Clone Wars - I know he is coming in those 4 packs but I don't want to spend $35 for 4 of him.

Paploo - excellent choice.  Maybe with a second all new Ewok.

Jawas are always good for me.  Mix and match 'em.  If they're not going to redo Wedge, they should put him out there again for folks.  I personally thought they would resissue more Darth Mauls; the CS one from '99 would be cool to see single carded.

Well, some of them are kind of obvious.  Plus your list was "inspiring".
