Ultra Line in 2007?
« on: August 11, 2006, 04:58 PM »
Lando the Scoundrel and I got talking the other night that there seems to be some big "pieces" coming out next year.  The rumored tower for the Rebel Sentry, the confirmed U-Shaped bar piece and the confirmed Moisture Vaporator.

I wonder if there is a Ultra/Deluxe type line coming also?  It might explain some of the sizable accesories.  Thoughts?

BTW, I'm sorry about all the 2007 posts, but I am so totally bored with what Hasbro is releasing in the fall. Repaint after repaint after repaint...

I'm trying to stay interested by focusing on next year.

Well I always wanted them to make a DS gunner with the...well...gun.  But they never did.  I assume they won't now since they just released the figure.  I guess it may pegwarm though? 

Yeah, I would not mind another Ultra line.  It would just depend upon what they release in that line.  I think about stuff like an SA Palpatine Duel with SA Yoda and a breakeable Senate Pod.  But Hasbro went ahead and went with the Battle Pack repack idea instead. 

I kind of think the Battle Packs are the way Hasbro wants to go.  Especially when they are already charging $7 for a basic fig.  I would assume Ultras would now be $15. 

Regardless, some other stuff would be cool.  I would not even mind if it was 2 packs of say Ephant Mon and Hermi Odle.  Or Ree Yees and BG-J38 with his little data console.  Ak-Rev and Yarna with the Big Drum.  Anything like that.

Sorry, just thinking out loud.  I can't think of anything great right now like Wampa and Luke or Jabba the Hutt and his denizens or Ewok with Glider or C-3PO with Escape Pod (wish they had made a brand new version).

I would very much like to see the Ultra Figure line come back in 2007. But I get the sneaking feeling that the Vintage Figure line has taken that bit of pegspace away. Be that as it may, I'd like some of the following:

Droideka with shields



Clone Commander w/ electrobinoculars at Forward Command Post



Geonosian Sonic Cannon w/ Geonosian Warrior



Darth Vader in medical capsule



Octuptarra Droid



Owen Lars with Moisture Vaporator



Han Solo - Pre & Post Carbon Freeze



Admiral Ackbar with holographic Endor & Death Star 2

The ultra line is one of my favorites...so many great possibilities. I guess some of my top choices would be:

SA softgoods Emperor with throne (I REALLY want this!)
Nute Gunray with mechanochair
Death Star Trooper Commander with command station
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Pilot figure with softgoods robe) with Eopie and baby Luke
Cantina "booth" with cantina alien (they could keep releasing this with a new alien)
Han Solo with Bespin torture rack
Biker scout with NEW speeder bike
Cantina Denizens (Dice Ibegon, Reegesk, Rycar Ryjerd)
Toryn Farr with command station
Geonosian Orray with Picador

Yes, I am really missing the Ultra Line.  Seeing that since we don't get many playsets, the Ultra/Deluxe line seemed to be the closest thing we can get.  When I look backl on items as good as the Bacta Tank, I really do miss the days when you could go and find deluxe figures at stores.

BUMP! I was just looking through some old topics and saw this one. It also made me think of some ideas. Recent larger pack-ins (Droideka w/Shield, Luke w/Vaporator, Elis and Miiyoom w/Bar Pieces, Umpass-stay w/drum, etc.) actually seem to make more sense than the return of the ultra line, however, now that we've seen Hasbro is capable of giving them to us. So, any ideas for larger pack-ins?

I'd love to see:

Rebel Sentry w/tower
Crab Droid (accurately scaled)
Death Star Gunner w/Cannon
Admiral Ackbar w/Endor Hologram
Geonosian Picador w/Orray
Geonosian Warrior w/Sonic Cannon
Nute Gunray w/Neimoidian Mechno Chair
Darth Sidious mini hologram w/holoprojector
Tey How w/Chair and PK Droid

And, of course, extra-crispy Darth Vader w/Medical Capsule!  ;D

This is interesting to read as Hasbro is making a few of these ideas in the basic line. Octuptarra Droid, Droideka with shields, and Han Solo with Bespin Torture Rack, so why would any one want to pay $10 or more of what they are offering to us for $7? With that many of these ideas could be worked into the basic line, like NEW Owen Lars with Moisture Vaporator, Nute Gunray w/ Mechno-Chair & Darth Sidious Hologram, C-3PO (dirty deco) with Oil Bath, Death Star Trooper with Control Room Console, etc.

If they do bring back this line I would like to see some bigger items included, like Admiral Ackbar w/Endor & Death Star 2 Hologram table, Geonosian Picador with Orray, Death Star Gunner with Cannon, etc. Even it is bumped the price up a bit, it would still be cool.

Agreed Roron, they'd have to include bigger accessories to justify the $10 price point now.
