Should Hasbro re-release the Eopie?
« on: May 27, 2003, 02:58 AM »
If so, how should they do it?  

With the same Qui Gon?

With a Padme and Anakin riding it?

With an all new Alien rider?

As a Deluxe like the Nexu?

Who wants one?

 :P

I'd buy another Eopie with Kitster as a pack in



If you are going to rerelease something make it worth my while :)

I'm all for a re-release (wouldn't there really have to be an original release to consider it a re-release?)   ..... Oh yeah, I forgot, they were released.... just like the 2nd wave of the Cantina sets.

I would like to see this re-released. I have one that I got overseas. I would have liked to get some more for displays and stuff. If Hasbro were to re-release this set, I would change the packin to Kitster and Shmi.

Yeah, I'd buy it again with a new pack-in.

It was scarce enough that it would definitely help a lot of people if it was reissued.  Why not?

I'd like to see it re-released, because I never got a chance to buy one of these when they were in stores.

Kitster would be a great pack-in, I never thought of that.  Good idea OCB!  

Adding Shmi too with the ability to straddle this fugly beast would be very cool.

Maybe later down the road they could add Anakin and Padme too as a variant.  Freaks like myself would purchase it. ;)

The Mother of a Sith Lord does not straddle. She rides side saddle.

I'm sure there are enough collectors still missing the original Eopie with Qui-Gon to warrant a straight reissue. Hasbro would probably want to update the packaging though, which would make investors happier and MIMB completists cringe.

I'd pick up 1 or 2 depending on cost and availability...  They seemed like a plentiful beast on Tatooine so they'd be great for any Tat. diorama I believe.

A packaging change wouldn't bother me at all since I open them, but I could see carded/boxed guys going nuts over that.  

I'd prefer just a basic re-release of it myself, except the packaging change...  No new figures.  Just the original QGJ.

...and they should include the three bonus Pit Droids while they're at it.

This has always been one of my most wanted re-releases (next to Trophy Swimming Obi Wan, who wasn't actually released at all I guess...).  The Eopie seems prime for one of the TRU 4 packs.  I don't know what the theme would be, perhaps the Pod Race, or Queen's Ship.  Then he could come with engine parts and so forth.

Spuffy arrives in style!  ;D
