April Fool's Wave
« on: April 5, 2007, 06:38 PM »
I know, I should've started this thread sooner. But a few days ago, as we began seeing Wave 2 of TAC on the shelves, it reminded me of another wave we should've gotten early April...

Hasbro's infamous 'April Fool's' wave from SDCC2006.

So that made me think of a question I'd like to ask you:
Of the six figures 'revealed' that day, which would you most like to see?

Dead Jawas 2-Pack
Willrow Hood (aka ICMG)
Funeral Pyre Darth Vader
Yarna dal Gargan
Xtra Crispy Owen and Beru Lars
Funeral Pyre Qui-Gon Jinn

My order:
1. Willrow Hood
2. Yarna Dal Gargan
3. Xtra Crispy Owen and Beru Lars
4. Dead Jawas 2-Pack
5. Funeral Pyre Darth Vader
6. Funeral Pyre Qui-Gon Jinn

What about you guys?

I'd buy all of those except Yarna. The dead Owen & Beru could be good for a Jabba's dungeon display. So would the Jawas.
My order:
1. Willrow Hood
2. Funeral Darth Vader
3. Funeral Qui-Gon Jinn
4. Dead Jawas
5. Dead Owen & Beru

I'd buy every single one of those in a heartbeat - but for the purpose of this question I'll go with Crispy Beru and Lars (and the Jawas) since the others will most likely be made at some point.

ICMG or either funeral character. The others are just useless.

My  obvious #1 is Yarna. I feel the same way about her that most feel about Willrow.

My order:

1. Yarna Dal Gargan
2. Crispy Owen and Beru Lars
3. Funeral Pyre Darth Vader
4. Funeral Pyre Qui-Gon Jinn
5. Willrow Hood
6. Dead Jawas 2-Pack

Given Hasbro's love in for Vader - and 42N-TLR's comments today, I'd go with Funeral Vader.  Yarna will come.  ICMG will come only as a joke, Hasbro just isn't biting on that - lots of wishful thinking.

I have a feeling he has a chance of winning Fan's Choice this year. I know I'll vote for him last year.
