'06 Holiday Figure
« on: September 4, 2006, 06:22 PM »
What do you think it'll be? IMO, it'll probally be Holiday Anakin Skywalker (III-02 re-pack). ::)

If they do one, my guess would be Wicket and some ewoks.

I never buy the holiday figure.  They could make it a Jabba and Gardulla as Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus 2 pack for $4.99 and I'd still leave it on the shelf.


Okay maybe I'd buy that one, but nothing short of that creativity and bargain.

I did not buy the crappy Vader one but I reallys liek my santa yoda, xmas r2 & 3po and even the jawas with gifts. 

I would buy a taun taun with anthlers or a xmas color mini rig ala vintage.

Same here.

I did manage to get a Threepio/Artoo x-mas set for $1.00 per figure - so I have a loose one of them.  But that's it.  And I'd need to run into similar deals to get the Jawas or any of the rest.

I loved the C-3PO/R2 pack as well as Yoda.  The Jawas were a little weak but still nice enough that I bought a set.  The Vader last year, though, was a slap in the face.

I passed.  I won't be back for more holiday figures unless Hasbro steps up and shows some cleverness like they did with the first two releases.

My holiday figure wish:

Essentially, an Early Bird Chewbacca with Hoth Deco

Give him a Santa hat and the mesh bag used to carry C-3PO, but have sculpted presents inside instead. Also, instead of his bowcaster give him a big "Santa's List" that scrolls around and stops in a pile on the ground. The backdrop could be an illustration of the ramp of the falcon (with snowy foot prints leading up the ramp) you can also see loads of presents stacked up on the floor of the Millennium Falcon.

I like the Santa Chewie idea but Wicket is a strong contender because if they tool him up right with a removable hat they can recycle him with a new sculpt in the Saga 07 line. More Ewoks are welcome in my opinion. :D

EWOKS suck in my opinion (I didn't get to relish seeing enough of them die in ROTJ) but I think that Chewie idea makes alot of sense and sounds like a likely choice..if they did it Jaybird's way I could see myself buying.

I want Jabba/Gardulla thing! Well besides the fact that Jabba hired Jango to kill her. :P
The Chewie idea would be so sweet, too.
