Anyone else think we'll see more pods?
« on: April 16, 2006, 12:49 AM »
Just wondering if anyone else out there has the feeling that we'll be getting some more packs of figures that come with the pods?  Though I've not seen one up close yet, I can't imagine them tooling something like that to only release in the one package. 

I can at least see a (bad) rehash that has Mas Amedda, Palpatine (disfigured) and perhaps a new Padme and a slightly modified Bail.  Boredom at the Senate or something like that. 

Any other ideas?

Good point.  I could see a Senators type pack, too, if they threw in a Horox Ryder or something to make it interesting for people.  A new Padme would be nice, but so would a million dollars.

I was thinking this thing probably was meant to come as a deluxe piece in the ROTS line, but didn't make the cut.  So what figure was it supposed to come with?  And where is it?

Good topic, I could see them re-releasing it, and hope they do in some fashion.

If it's done in some sort of multi pack, I hope for God's sake we somehow get a new Padme and Palpatine with it.  But who knows.

It could just be a pack in at Walmart or somewhere as Deluxes, we get 3 Senators each with their own pod, like the original release of the Cantina bar sets.

I thought someone had mentioned to me the Senate Pod was from something else already, and wasn't something they had to retool...  And now I can't remember where I was told this but I brought up a similar point about it being re-released.

I bet the pod has been something Hasbro's been sitting on since Episode I, but they never released it, ala the Wookiee Senator and Celebration Padme from the Post-OTC line.

It just doesn't seem like a good fit in the ROTS line.

I was kind of thinking it would have come with Yoda or Sidious, to recreate the Senate Duel.  Or maybe it dates all the way back to the Saga Ultra days.

I have not seen one in person yet, but it would seem that they are too big to fit on a regular card. If they work out a way, I am sure they will jump at the chance to use them again.

Maybe if they somehow could break it apart and reconnect it when you take it out of the packaging?  They probably won't do that though.  They would want to get at least $10 out of it somehow.    It would be nice though.  Then again where do you put the pod anyway?  They will never make a senate playset.  I guess you have to make your own and somehow fit a pod into it.

That would be a heck of an undertaking!  But yeah, I agree that HasBLO will find a way to use the pod again.

It will probably be a one time thing for the sheer fact that people have been wanting it and that the set will out due mostly to it. It is rare that Hasbro recogizes a popular item.. I mean look at the cases Asst. My local target is sitting on Poggles,Yoda and Sun Fac, is there a clone trooper to be found? NO.. Pod + Demand= shrt supply, never seen again..But I hope not.

That'd be a great idea. I smell Cinema Scenes.

Hasbro sometimes uses accessories more than once and sometimes they do not.  Being a non-movie year and something that would sell, I smell re-release donw the road. :D

I'd love Po Nudo. I could also go for Argente and Mai since we haven't gotten non-slashed (what a lame effect that was...) carded versions. Never did buy any CIS or Jedi Council sets.

I really want some more, whether they're in either BPs or deluxe sets (for example, new senate Padme w/ a senate pod). I don't have any yet, but they look veyr cool, and would make awesome dio pieces.
