Never really paid attention or I've been living under a rock, but noticed today that Hasbro has "3D enviromental" playsets for their Marvel Heroes that can connect and what not with each other.  Would have been nice if they threw a few out for Galactic Heroes the past few years to see how they would have performed, but I guess it's too late now.

I just noticed one of those yesterday in the store. They'd have been so much nicer than the cardboard ones we got for the Star Wars sets.

So, with the BOG1/2 sale, I checked TRU's website for Galactic Heroes.  The only two Cinema Scenes they still have in stock are the awful Arena2 (Nexu) and Endor3 (Ewok Glider) sets.  Shocker those never sold through   ::)

Anyway, it gave me the price I needed to finally pick up that Endor set.  I haven't even really looked at that Glider figure too closely, since I was always planning to pass on it.  I'm eager to see how it turned out.

looks like Dooku comes with a COMMANDO DROID  so that should be a new figure!

I see that AT-AT showing up on the bay- hopefully it will hit the brick and mortar stores soon!

Wow...I completely forgot about this line - haven't seen anything new in quite some time. 

Bring on the baby AT-AT!

Quote from: Sir Steve's Guide Q&A with Hasbro
Sir Steve's Guide
SSG:  Now that you've made Galactic Heroes figures of Max Rebo and Droopy McCool, there is a hole in the band. Why did Sy Snootles get left out of the set? Might Hasbro consider rounding out the original trio of palace band members by making a Sy Snootles Galactic Heroes figure? She would go great in a 2 pack with any of Jabba's more prominent minions (Tessek, Ephant Mon, or Ree-Yees for instance) or perhaps Oola or cloak-wearing Luke. Seeing as these more obscure Galactic Heroes figures are fan-driven, if you were to make a Sy figure would it be based on her classic "vintage" appearance?

Hasbro:   We have no plans to make a Sy Snootles or some of the other figures. Galactic Heroes seems to be overwhelmingly kid-driven, and aside from a few 2-packs with relatively obscure characters later this year, we'll be sticking to known and recognized characters going forward.

Hrumph.

"Known and recognized figures"?  I'd consider the lead singer of Jabba's band to qualify.  Disappointing news for sure.

Definitely disappointing.  I'm not sure what would qualify as "recognizable", but the majority of the big guns (particularly in the OT) have already been covered.  The line seems to be shifting to more of a CW focus anyways, and - aside from the upcoming AT-AT - I can't think of the last time I bought a 2 pack really.

That stinks.  I'm sure we were driving this line for a good portion, but I guess not anymore. 

Saw the new CW 2packs at Kohl's today - will have to cave on Bane/Aurra at some point.

Yeah, gee, if the line was so "overwhelmingly kid-driven," it sure would have been nice if they'd just stuffed 100% ignorable repacks into all those Cinema Scenes they didn't need us to buy.  ::)
