Quick aside:  I was just reading your similar post at RS, Chewie, and after reading a certain moderator's reply, I realized I'm so glad I found this place today.  I didn't even bother posting myself.  

But to the topic:  I dig this idea.  It would be a neat way for us to get a modular Falcon, a Star Destroyer, et al.  Bring them on!

Yep, Spuffy I know what you mean.  Quite often that mod likes to diss peoples' ideas.  Sometimes he rubs me the wrong way, and lately when he does that towards me or someone else I'll openly argue with him.  After a while, it just gets on my nerves.  I like it much better here anyway, and am glad you're here too.  What a fantastic forum this is.  I really enjoy it.

Man, all you guys have some great ideas.  I was going to go into detail on some ideas but it looks like you all beat me to it!  That's ok, I'll try and come up with some a little later. ;)

$10 would be a better pricepoint considering what they are doing now with the 3 3/4" figures as far as pack-ins go...I am so glad that they dumped slides, forcefiles, and chips and gave us stands that we can actually use!!!

i dunno 10 bucks seems a little too cheap for a playset in the size of a simpsons set. maybe 15 but not 10  :P
it matter not as we will never see anythign liek it... not too soon anyway.

JABBAS DAIS
comes with bib fortuna newly sculpted. maybe those giant snake kinda guys hanging in back. the frog bowl, the pipe, and a gate in the floor to the pit. but it doesn't open

WATTOS SHOP
with good watto ep1 style. molded junk pieces, and 7-10 pieces that can randomly be set up. the counter for business deals to go down. hmm maybe a chance cube  :D

It's a cool idea.  Especially if they can sell it for under $17.  There's plenty of things you could come up with for this.  Seems like it would basically be like a beefed up deluxe figure line, sans the weird action features.

That's a cool idea.  Since I'm not an opener, I wouldn't buy them, but I'm sure lots of other people would

Heh heh...

I don't know if it's a winning idea or not, but I'd buy it.  Especially if the Han was well articulated and was more poseable than the SAGA Endor Han.

A baby Ewok would be great, and my Endor diorama would look very cool with some Ewok corpses to go along with many Stormtroopers lying dead.
