Didn't they say in a Q&A or somewhere that they'd be reducing the total # of figs produced this year?  If they just don't ship as often, they wouldn't have a gap to fill, just a little longer between each wave and get the Fprce Unleashed wave back out there when the game is finally released.

That was for the VOTC style figures not the regular waves. Hasbro will do another replacement wave either moving up a later one or like the previous 2 years which is probally the case do Repaints. There are so many great repaints for them to do some of which have been mentioned alreay:

OTC Spirit Obi wan in Flesh colors
VOTC Boba Fett in ESB colors
Lava Battle Burn Pilot Obi vs Evo anakin
Sae see's and Kit's R2 droids
Red Naboo soldier
IG-88 in White ESB colors
ICMG (My custom is quite easy to remake)

I say they should make a replacement wave of nothing but repacks.  I'll go with 12 figures, sort of a "Greatest Repacks" wave to help out people who missed on some harder to find figures and mix in some desirable army builders...

- SAGA Ephant Mon x 1
- VSTC Biker Scout x 1
- VOTC Stormtrooper x 1
- Evolutions ROTS Anakin x 1
- SAGA Coleman Trebor x 1
- Evolutions AOTC white Clone x 1
- VOTC Boba Fett x 1
- Early Bird Chewbacca x 1
- Evolutions Palpatine x 1
- VOTC ANH Princess Leia x 1
- POTC Pablo Jill x 1
- ROTS Battle Droid 2-pk x 1

 :P

Aren't they already doing that?  Isn't Saga Legends essentially a "greatest repacks" assortment full of harder to find figures and desirable army builders?  :P

If they did have to do a "replacement wave", I'd much prefer repaints like JACKOFTRADZE mentioned over more straight repacks.

I'd go for Jack's list too, some great ideas there.

I just don't really like Hasbro's Greatest Hits assortments though... most are usually pretty lame. I know they ran the "poll" at RS about what people would like to see... but some of those I think are just ridiculous and were NOT hard to find... there are a few that I do like of course, like the Battle Droids and Sandtrooper.





Bousch Leia?  That Vader again?  That ridiculous Anakin?  That same Grievous?  That Maul instead of the Evolutions one?  That 3PO again???

I can see wanting to refresh figures... but I'd rather see better versions... I mean the Chewbacca?  Why not the Early Bird version?

 :P

 >:( If they do make a Qui-Gon make him right-SA with no funky hair-The Jedi training gear had the best head sculpt of Qui-Gon in fact an SA of that would really rock! ;D

I think he'd be a great candidate for an Evolutions set...

Jedi Masters

- Master Dooku (Jedi gear)
- TPM SA Qui Gon Jinn (new sculpt)
- ANH SA Obi Wan (new sculpt)

Might be kind of cool since all three are relevant to each other.

Except ICMG, Hasbro has delayed for too long. I don't want a simple re-hash I want an all new SA sculpt.

The first two waves are crappy, excluding Fett, all clones, Battle Droids & sand trooper. The last wave is the fan's choice wave.

Force Unleashed Replacement Wave (Repaints)
« Reply #27 on: May 7, 2007, 02:13 AM »
Rebelscum's mentioned a new wave of figures to fill in for the Force Unleashed wave being dumped to '08 due to the game's delay.  What's the verdict on these?

-Holographic Vader...  They're saying it'll use Dagobah Vader, which isn't bad...  Good sculpt, decent height and all.  He can't really do the hands on his hip dealie he does when he's talking to people via holograph (Off hand only his chat with Veers comes to mind?).  Still it's another cheap holographic figure, which people dig briefly.

-Naboo Dude (Red)...  Oh I can hear the complaints already on this one.   :)  Still, you gotta admit the figure's not horrid.  It's accurate, fairly poseable (not great)...  I'm ok with this but again I could have lived without it, and if this guy gets a figure I think ICMG must be made.

-Rodian Mechanics...  I'm not even gonna bother looking into their names.  I'm already a little irked that I really doubt they're accurate (wrong boots) and the vest isn't gonna be quite right.  I'm assuming here obviously, but a straight VTSC Greedo repaint ain't "accurate".  There's a neatness to this one though, if for no other reason than diversity, but I'd just as happily taken the Rodian with a Hoth vest from Jabba's Palace over these.

-Rebel Vanguard...  The figure it's being based on, TSC Endor Rebel, isn't very good so this figure is going to suffer.  Weaponry will be the main interesting factor on this one. 

-Clone w/Poncho...  Now this kicks ass.  Best figure of the wave as a LOT of people dug those clones with the muddy deco and poncho's from the CW toons.  I'm anxious to see this.

-Brown Dot ROTS Clone...  Meh, I'll get a handful but it's like the 5th Fleet figure...  boring paint job.  I wish they'd include some cool accessories like boxes and a heavy cannon or something.  Mix it up a little for once. :(

Rodian mechanics = Pax & Trax Bonkik, named by fan "javajawas" thru the What's The Story thingie on Hyperspace.

I have always liked these guys for some reason--but I, too, think Hasbro'll just throw different paint on some old Greedo and call it a day. :(

The poncho clone sounds the best of the bunch by far, but none of them should suck except the Brown Dot Clone.

These are for real?

I don't know what to think other than it's not a very exciting wave.
