VEUC?
« on: March 5, 2006, 03:33 PM »
I was thinking, woudn't it be cool if Hasbro did a Vintage Expanded Universe Collection? Just think! SA Quinlon Vos, Spacetrooper, etc. All on Vintage-Style cards. My picks:

Wave 1:
-SA Quinlon Vos w/ Lightsaber, Hilt, Blaster, and Soft Goods
-SA Darktrooper w/ E-11 Rifle and Grenade Launcher
-SA Mara Jade w/ Lightsaber, Hilt, and E-11 Rifle
-SA Assaj Ventress w/ Two Lightsabers and Soft Goods

Wave 2:
-SA Kyle Katarn w/ E-11 Rifle and Lightsaber
-SA Storm Commando w/ E-11 Rifle
-SA Roron Corobb w/ Soft Goods, Lightsaber, and Hilt
-SA Jodo Kast w/ Rifle, Pistol, and Removable Helmet

Wave 3:
-SA ARC Trooper (Red) w/ Two Pistols, Soft Goods, and Removable Helmet
-SA Corran Horn w/ Lightsaber, Hilt, and Pistol
-SA Yuuzhan Vong Warrior w/ Amphistaff
-SA Dash Rendar w/ Pistol and Grenade Launcher

What is with you people wanting all super articulated figures on "Vintage style" cards? It really makes no sense.

If they ever did that it would be Peg-warm city

I think the idea of SA EU characters is alright, as long as they're in the basic line.

No way in hell EU characters would sell at $10 a crack.

Yep, it makes no sense and they would pegwarm but you have to have faith.  Sometimes the possibility of something is better than the thing itself.  I know it sounds corny but that is how it is. ::)

NO. NO. NO. NO. A THOUSAND TIMES NO.

What'd be cool is if Hasbro would make VOTC quality EU figures in the basic line. I don't want to pay $10 for "vintage style" figure from 1998.

I like the idea of SA EU characters, but I see no need to put them on vintage syle cards.  Perhaps sell them as a sub-line or separate wave of the basic figures, or perhaps even one EU figure could be added per wave in 2007.

Regardless, I think Reid's choices of figures and accessories are excellent, but keep them on basic cards.

My problem with the initial idea is that only the action figures that were released in the original Vintage line can be rereleased  on those same cards. Why would you want to have every single super articulated figure on a "Vintage style" cardback and at a higher price? The VOTC line is meant for collectors and especially for those who played with and collect the Vintage line.

I completely agree with JediShawn. Look, the idea of uber articulated figure from any series is fine, just don't add the word vintage as it is both academically and moraly wrong. ;)

Oh, yeah, no reason to have them cost $10 either.

I'm never in favor of $5 figs for twice the price, but a fantasy line with PT or EU characters on vintage esque cards would be interesting.  It's never going to happen, so it's no sweat.

I like the idea, but I'm not too fond of it since there would be quite a few army builders, but hard to army build with at $10 each. But then again, if they were in the basic line, they would be a pain in the ass to find...  :P

This is a wonderful idea and there are better ways to say you don't like it than start bashing the thread.  It's a good idea, just not on $10-$12 cardbacks I don't think.  But I'd be all for a series of EU stuff - maybe 3-4 waves and I'd be more than content.

Wave One - The Old Republic

- Darth Revan
- Darth Malak
- Bastila
- T3-M4

Wave Two - The Clone Wars

- Quinlan Vos
- Snowbunny Padme
- Separatist IG Lancer Droid
- Separatist Chameleon Droid

Wave Three - Imperial Era

- Darktrooper
- Mara Jade
- Talon Karde
- Grand Admiral Thrawn

Wave Four - New Republic

- Jaina Solo
- Jacen Solo
- Nom Anor
- Noghri Warrior

 :P

I hope that they don't put any expanded universe or prequel figures on vintage cards.  Not only does it make no sense, but it would limit the number of OT figures that they could do - and I'm hoping that they do every single vintage figure, SA style, on these vintage cards.
