Ultimate Lucas Collection
« on: November 19, 2005, 09:46 AM »
I was at the sirs website and they have pics of 2 of the 4 figures in the set. Lucas from the opera and his daughter i beleive. I think its actually pretty coolo, cant wait for these figures, seems liek they will be Starwarsshop exclusives. hey mention that it was a flyer from them with the exclusive clone trooper. I didnt get a flyer. There are pics up over there.

I saw those pictures over at Rebel Scum. This is very interesting, indeed.

Yeah, I saw that last night.  There goes the b.s. about how George was not going to let his character become a figure.  It looks like it's pretty cool IMO.  Even his daughter's action figure looks nice.  Not sure what the other 2 figs will be?  Lucas as a stormtrooper perhaps and maybe the other daughter?

Hmm, interesting. The prototypes look good, but I'll wait until we see "official" pics to criticise/praise them.

Probably Zett Jukassa and maybe Lucas' other daughter.

I don't think they should re-release Jett Zukasa, but who knows.  The other daughter is a good choice.

Gotta love it... STAR WARS IS FOREVER!

Remember all the naysayers saying the line would end in 2006...  ::)

My guess is also the other daughter and another Zett.

For the lazy among us ;), the article is here:



Lookin' really good so far!

BTW, any one else notice how RS is hotlinking a lot of news images lately ... for example, those Lucas pics are on CollectingHQ.com. Not cool. ::) Or have they been doing this for a while and I never noticed until recently?

I thought those images were scanned by a member. At least that's what the member said he did.

As for the collection, I give a non-commital - interesting. Cute almost.

Yes, the images that are on RS are scanned from a inserted flyer I received from SWShop when I got my Anakin Maquette and not from another site.

My apologies ... I was referring to the fact than when you go, for example, to this page and right-click the image, the address is http://www.collectinghq.com/im/0006357.jpg instead of a Rebelscum address. Initially I thought RS was stealing bandwidth from some other collecting site...

...But when I actually go to CollectingHQ.com, it's "Collecting Headquarters develops website publishing software that enables easy management of complicated websites, specifically targeting news and image based applications." and that RS is listed as one of their affiliate sites. D'oh!

Note to self: fact-check next time before shooting yer mouth off. :-[

Looking at it, that Baron Papanoida figure is now must most antipated release of next year.  Why?  Because it's a never before done sculpt that is not a Jedi, Clone or Imperial.  Even the female senator figure is pretty cool.  Maybe we'll aslo get the rubenesque Twi'lek from AOTC.

Good call Speedermike.  To me, I'm excited about these mostly because they are of obscure characters, not of Clones or Jedi.  And they look like kickass custom fodder.  I could see making a Naboo Queen custom out of the daughter figure.

I saw this over the weekend too, kind of a nice surprise.  I'll be happy to get a Lucas figure like this, and if they do the rest of his family, that's cool too.  I know if I was in charge of a franchise like this, I'd give my kids a cameo/action figure too ;).  I'll be curious what the price point is on these, as it sounds like they are SWShop exclusives, but at least they look like all-new figures.  I plan on picking them up, especially the George Lucas/Baron Papanoida one.
