Fett seems to be selling but's that's because it's a Fett. :P
Yeah, I would much prefer new sculpts. Those would of sold quicker, up to the point of being HTF.

Just noticed this, which I thought was kinda funny:

1.

Quote
The Target computer system is showing an Imperial Shuttle (DCPI #087-06-0483) coming with a $59.99 price tag. Is this a repack of the old FAO Schwarz exclusive, or is it something from another line? (SWC, 8/04/06)

No comment.

2.

Is there any word on when the Target-exclusive Imperial Shuttle will be out on shelves? The product's DPCI# is 087-06-0483 and it's saying its $59.99. (SWC, 9/29/06)

No comment.

3.

There have been rumors that you may have a Star Wars item at certain stores -- more specifically Target -- that will be released on Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving), can you confirm or deny this? (SWC, 10/22/06)

I cannot address this issue for any retailer. Sorry.

After responding "No comment" to several past queries, can you now tell us anything about the rumored Imperial Shuttle with Darth Vader and Royal Guard figures that is supposed to be a Target-exclusive? (SWC, 10/27/06)

Nope! (SWC note: Target.com has already confirmed this exclusive.)

They need a two question session Penalty.  The can't ask another question till Nov 17th.

And now for my weekly recap or should we call it the re-cRap:

Specific Figure Questions:  4 (but one was a Tonnika Sisters question...so bonus for that mistake)

Playset Questions: NONE, I am so proud of the community, means next week is Playset-o-rama...


New Annoyances: 

1.  Micro Machine and Action Fleet questions.  They have said no, the horse is dead, stop beating it.
2.  Complaining and nitpicking figures during the Q&A...great way to ensure the sessions end sooner than later.  Everybody likes to be told they suck at their job by their clients/customers.
3.  Big H contradicting themselves yet again.   In one question we get..IF the product shows up in the retailers computer, it is pretty much a done deal....in another they cannot confirm something that is on a retailers website.

Will we get questions/answers next week?  Or does Rhode Island take Halloween off as a holiday?

Yeah, the likely (re)release of Anakin and Obi-Wan in the 7" Unleashed line next year is really a head scratcher.  Not surprising, mind you, but I think we're probably seeing the end of this line at this point - which is a shame.  Even if they want to "test the waters" with re-released figures instead of new ones, there are a lot better choices out there that could probably sell out (Yoda, Han, Stormtrooper, etc.)

Do some other Star Wars sites/forums get exclusive official polling rights with Hasbro, or do all sites get equal input?  If we are all equal which figures does Sandtroopers.com get to have in our poll?  And what other sites will be included in this polling survey?

I honestly had trouble believing this got through...  Look I'm not a Rebelscum fan, but I think it was fairly obvious the how's and why's...  Why ask?

I am really hoping that the "no Bespin in 2007" comment isn't including the rumored VTSC figures of Han and Luke.  I was really looking forward to those, even though they weren't confirmed :).  Maybe they just mean there won't be a Bespin "wave" in the basic line.  Maybe...maybe? :P

That's how I took it - no Bespin wave.  But maybe he meant no Bespin Han, too, which would be okay by me (I'd prefer a SA Hoth Han myself).

Oh, I'd take a SA Hoth Han Solo any day as well, but I've just always been a fan of the Bespin get up for Han - although I think the POTJ figure is pretty good too, at least compared to its time.  I guess we'll see what they meant by the "no Bespin" comment though, eventually.

No Willrow Hood in '07??? What the heck?? I agree with the post about Bespin. There are so many cool figures to pull from there... hasbro can release tons of Vaders, Hans, or Lukes as long as they release some of the others like Piett (Escape from Bespin), Luke and Leia (Medical Frigate), etc. It's a little disappointing, so hopefully they'll get around to it in '08

Perhaps there is a silver lining though.  They said something to the effect that it will be worth the wait when they revisit Bespin.  I am assuming that could be a hint for you Willrow Hood fans.  Or maybe not.

Even though I'm not a huge fan of ICMG, maybe what they meant by "it'll be worth the wait" is that Willrow will be included in the future Bespin wave.

Seems like this week is riddled with Marvel Legends questions which has already been answered 2-3 times...

I do like the idea of Build-A-______ be it figure or playset though.  I'd see it as a way to get a dais or Cantina U or bigger things like Hermi or a Vaporator

It would also be a way to make sure people buy all of a wave
