30AC #01 Darth Vader with Coin Album
« on: September 22, 2006, 09:20 AM »
So has everyone seen this?

Looks like a nice marketing ploy to get everyone to buy rehashed figures (just to get the new coin):



Personally, I'm at the point of becoming burnt out with 3 3/4 figures.  This line might be the straw that broke the camel's back.

Reminds me of the Freeze Frames when you put it that way. I've never collected for the accessory, so my album is going to be incomplete. :P

Too bad there's not a checklist that will tell us the entire '07 line.

Man, I hope my will power is strong enough to keep me from re-buying a bunch of figures just to open and get the coin...  :-[

So is that the 500th Vader again?  You know, the one that was supposed to be special and commemorative and and unique and have some novelty attached to it?   ::)

The thing that got me was that according to something I read, there will be around 20 extra slots for exclusives or convention coins.  Yeah, I think this is going to go over really well.   ::)

Yeah, I noticed the "extra slots" comment as well - that could be a headache for anyone who wants to complete a set.  I'm hoping to stick to only picking up the figures I really want, but I'll admit I'm a sucker for coins too - so we'll see.  Still, I'm not going to buy a ton of repacks to have a complete set.  I'm half tempted to order the folder dealie though, that might be a neat way to keep/display them.

Already there, been there for a while.  Trying to convince myself to NOT start selling all of them off and ignore Hasbro entirely.  But I have always like the 3.75" stuff, it's just to the point where the cash grab is too blatant.  It's always been blatant, judging by the sheer number of Tatooine Lukes that exist alone but for much of that it was an evolution of the quality of the figures.  New cardback, new accessory, repaint - no thanks.

After posting about my reduction in basic lines purchases I stumble onto this.  I guess Hasbro is making sure I quit the line.  Oh well.

I have a feeling that this figure is going to get overproduced.

Well unlike the holograms, i am very excited for the coins. I am happily going to put together a full set. I pre-ordered 2 of these albums, perhaps using one for my vintage coin set.

I like coins too, but I will not buy figures for them.

And we thought 12 mini holgraphic figures in two colors was going to bite.... (well, 3 colors I guess)

Do we know if the coins packaged with the figure corresponds to the figure itself, or is it semi-random like the blue/red holo gimmick?

If it does correlate, the burden/fun of collecting them all might be a bit easier. (But not for those who don't buy repacks  ;))

I like the coin concept... better than the holos in my opinion. I wouldn't mind a whole set, but i know I'm not going to buy every figure and repacks just for the coin.

And, yes, hopefully the coins correspond to the figure.
