2 ANH waves next year?
« on: September 28, 2006, 07:36 PM »
Anyone think there'll be another ANH wave next year besides the Yavin wave? My guess would be yes because of the 30th Anniversary celebration. Hasbro would **** up big time if not IMO.  Any thoughts?

I certainly hope so, and I hope we'll be getting the same quality as the first wave.

If they do I hope it is some figures we have not gotten before like CZ-3, Tonnika Sisters, Wioslea, and some main characters like Luke Stormtrooper and Han Stormtrooper and a nice new Tarkin(sorry the EU Marvel comic books don't count).

I just hope that if they do they put the VOTC storm trooper in it not the dirty sand trooper one bc i think the plain white ones would be sold a lot better not that the sandtroopers werent awsome

I think Hasbro said they won't be doing a basic Stomie Han & Luke. :(
They also said no VOTC Stomies, unless it's a choice for the H&V. :)

Yeah, I can not believe they are not smart enough to put a Stormtrooper Han and Luke out.  That marvel pack does not count IMO for Han.  I thought for sure they would plunk a Han and Luke head with removeable helmet on the VOTC stormtrooper body and be done with it.  I'd be happy with it to.

Oh, they'll make them (Han and Luke Stormtrooper that is).

They will be comtech bodies with more recent heads, with "garbage water reflection effects." They will cost $14.00 at Target, and when they don't sell out the first day we will all be blamed for ruining their business and the hobby.

More like 20 bucks.  ::
They can't put a Luke head on a VOTC body, you have to remember he is " a little short for a stormtrooper". ;)

Well, Hasbro's had two years to get Grievous' scale right and they continue to make him significantly shorter than he should be, so what makes anyone think they would notice Luke's height?   ::)

It's good to hear we're getting an all new DST after all, though.  The POTF2 one isn't acceptable by any stretch of the imagination.  I just hope they don't give the new one another big-ass gun that sends our poor DST to the Imperial Worker's Comp Office for a herniated disc.

Well, Hasbro has had 12 to do a Luke. 10 years difference for poor Grievous, I do want a good tall Grievous. He's my 2nd fave ROTS- only character, besides Cody.

I would like to see Luke and Han in stormtrooper armor with removable helmets and SA.
That would be very nice.
Maybe even a death star trooper?

Looking at the list linked off of GH.com maybe 2 ANH waves are coming (again rumor lists)...

I am proud of Hasbro for sneaking in some "Star Wars" stuff in the middle of the 2nd Anniverary Celebration of ROTS.

Any figure pre 2001 POTJ should forever be put to rest.
Monkey Leia rules! She was even bad by the standards then. I remember when I got her for the first time, I was so excited then I saw the face. I was actually cool with the buff look then. The Boba and Luke x wing broke new ground in deco. I also remember thinking to myself it does not get better than this.

If there are 2 waves please no more Tatooine Lukes no more! I hope they re-release Dagobah Obi with normal paint scheme that figure was cool.
