30th Anniversary Tin Collector Sets
« on: May 29, 2006, 12:31 PM »
Linky to that otheR Site.

Since I'm a sucker for stuff like this, I suppose I'm going to buy them. They could be those "new toys" spoken of in the DVD press release.

I seriously doubt that any VOTC/VTSC figures would be in the packs, for some reason.

Considering that Hasbro is already releasing many old sculpts in the DVD Commemorative Three Packs, I think that these tin sets will probably have mostly repacks, but good ones. I wouldn't be at all surprised if there were some new sculpts, either. Remember the rumored Luke in Bespin fatigues and other Vintage-style figures for this year? Those could easily be put into this Tin sets.

These are going to retail for about twenty five dollars.

I'm not sure why, but I can easily see these Tin double packs being exclusive to Sam's Club or Costco for some reason, but being as there's supposed to be "new toys" out for the DVD release, it would make sense for them to be a store-wide release - the packaging is just too black and white.  Just doesn't seem catchy enough for the average consumer in a normal retail store.

25 dollars is not a very good deal for just 2 figures that might be repacks. I might have to pass on these, considering the price.

Actually, there are four figures in these packs.

"will come with four figures displayed in two packs".

If there are 4 VOTC/VTSC figures for $25 then yeah I may get these.  That seems to good to be true though.

I figure these will be OT only, but even if they go the straight repack route of VOTC/VTSC/Evolutions style figures, it could still be worth picking some things up.

Here's what I think would do well (although I'm probably wrong):

-ANH:   VOTC Chewbacca (EB Version) and VOTC Stormtrooper
-ANH:   VOTC Stormtrooper and VOTC Stormtrooper
-TESB:  VOTC Boba Fett (ESB colors) and VOTC Stormtrooper
-TESB:  VTSC X-Wing Luke (grey gloves) and VOTC Stormtrooper
-ROTJ:  Evolutions Darth Vader and VOTC Stormtrooper
-ROTJ:  VTSC Biker Scout and VOTC Stormtrooper

And hey, how about some prequel tins along these lines?

-TPM:   NEW SA Qui-Gon Jinn and Evolutions Darth Maul (with balljointed elbows)
-TPM:   NEW SA Battle Droid and NEW SA Obi-Wan Kenobi
-AOTC: NEW SA Jango Fett and NEW SA Obi-Wan Kenobi
-AOTC: NEW SA Super Battle Droid and SA Clone Trooper
-ROTS: Evolutions Anakin (Sith Eyes) and NEW SA 501st Clone Trooper
-ROTS: NEW SA General Grievous and NEW SA MagnaGuard

Good idea DP... if each of these came with a VOTC Stormtrooper... that would be awesome, yet expensive.   :)

There will be Tins for all six movies.

I hope this is true, because that is perfect for collectors who open the figures. I am all for it. I they repack of all Vintage Style Figures in that 2 pk like example

ANH-Luke & ANH Leia
ANH-Han & ROTJ-Chewbacca (EB Version)
ANH-Obi-Wan & ESB-Darth Vader
ESB-Yoda & ESB-Lando Calrissian
ESB-C3PO & ROTJ-R2D2
ROTJ-Stormtrooper & ROTJ-Biker Scout (FINGERS CROSSED)
ROTJ-Han & ANH-Greedo
ANH-Luke (X-Wing) & ANH-Tusken Raider
ROTJ-Boba Fett & ?

And also with the rumored VTSC wave 2, but I seriously doubt they will put those in the 2 pks, I rather have them individually in their Vintage cards first.

Agreed.  I would bet that these figures will be basic and not VOTC quality.

I would rather have had these based off of the vintage three packs.

It will be interesting to see what these end up being.  Like Ben mentioned at the start of this thread, I'm sure I'll pick these up too as I'm a sucker for this type of thing.  I do hope if we're seeing repacked figures, they do go with the VOTC/VTSC figures, that would be sweet.  Any chance to get some more VOTC Stormies is fine by me.  I'd be kind of surprised if these did include the rumored next wave of VTSC figures (Bespin Luke, Snowtrooper, etc.) - I think we'll see those single carded first as well - and that's fine with me.  If they just use nice figures in these tins, and don't pack them full of Cantina Hans and 500th Vaders, they could be nice products (please use the VOTC figs Hasbro).
