5 most wanted repacks
« on: May 16, 2006, 11:29 PM »
I thought this might be a fun topic, I used to love trying to come up with "what if" discussions...

So, play along if you dare...

If you could pick 5 figures to be repacked onto SAGA cards, and easily available, what would they be?

For me - here is my list.  I'd have to go with army builders.

1 - VOTC Stormtrooper
2 - SAGA/OTC TIE Fighter Pilot
3 - ROTS Battle Droid
4 - SAGA Imperial Officer
5 - ROTS SA Clone Trooper w/ interchangeable AOTC helmet

Anyone else care to play?  Or add why they want particular figures repacked?  Or why you may be against it altogether?

 :)

1. VOTC Stormtrooper
2. Evolutions Sandtrooper
3. ROTS Battle Droid - although I'm very hesitant because this figure still has not been done right
4. Evolutions EIII Anakin
5. Evolutions EII white clonetrooper with interchangeable EIII helmet (or EIII SA clone mold)

Honorary Mention: Preview Wookiee Warrior  :D


** In due course surely I'll be able to strike out the battle droid and EIII Anakin in favor of the VTSC Biker Scout and Hoth Snowtroopers

Great choices Dressel!



The Anakin Evolutions is a good choice... also maybe Wookiees too, but I do like the ROTS version of the Battle Droid.  If one is willing to get the action stands, it's such a great display figure and looks great having a squad of them set up.

In no particular order:

1) POTF2 Deathstar Trooper- really disappointed that he wasn't rereleased in the OTC waves last time. I know alot of people dislike this figure, but I like it just fine :)

2) VOTC Stormtrooper- never picked up one when they were first released due to price, but would really like a few (well, ok, alot ;) ) eventually.

3) OTC Cloud Car Pilot- strickly for customizing purposes

4) Jorge Sacul- really need the head for a custom of "The Director" for my diorama (I plan on having Lucas and a film crew situated in the very front of my diorama ready to film "The Saga" ;) ).

5) RA-7- would love a few more for customs.

Great thread, Justin...

1. VOTC Stormtrooper (clean)
2. Evolutions Clonetrooper (clean)
3. VOTC Biker Scout
4. OTC Imperial Pilot
5. Captain Antilles (best RFT to date)

Anyone else dig some ROTS Royal Guard (Red Variant) action?

Jared I am taking it your list is based on stuff you'd like to see carded?  Those would be great looking on cards, even as an opener I admit those would be cool.

Spectre I guess I'd go for some more Cloud Car pilots too... for customs also!

Angry Ewok I like your list too... I am wondering if the rumored Yavin guard might suffice for a Fleet Trooper, but I'm probably dreaming.  I'd be all over Red/Blue variants though on the royal guards... and then bam, Hasbro will hit us with a better Royal Guard in ROTJ packaging.   ;)

Repacks are hard to come up with, because they have to be good the first time. If I were to think of a few they would be:

VOTC Boba Fett with ROTJ rifle and not that ESB one they always include with him.
VOTC Stormtrooper (just because you can never have too many)
Saga McQuarrie Concept Stormtrooper (same as above)
POTF2 Spacetrooper (neat figure maybe they would include something accessory wise with him this time)
and the fifth one any great figure with SA.

2.  VOTC Stormtrooper (duh)
3.  Evolutions AOTC Clone Trooper (complete with paint variants-white, red, blue, green, and yellow)
4.  Saga Imperial Officer (with gray suit and head variants)
5.  VOTC Boba Fett (in ESB colors)

Amanaman from Deluxe

This really, really clogged up the shelves for a while... but after that Empire comic series where the Amanamin kick the Imperial outpost's ass, I have to agree that I'd buy a few and make an army...

Paploo from AT-ST

Oh, come on Jim... Do you have this figure? It's a piece of crap, buddy.

Brad, I will take any form of ewok since we will always get hosed.  Throw in a few accessories and give the arms some articulation, repaint him and I am fine with it. 

Also, I know the Amanaman pegwarmed, but I want one released on a basic/single card to add to my carded collection.  I think it would look excellent with the yellow on black.
