TOY FAIR 2008!
« on: December 28, 2007, 08:57 PM »
Yeah, I know it's still six weeks away, and I still have a dozen or so 2007 figures to buy, but I'm already excited!  What does everyone think they'll show us, or what do you want to see?

I'm sure we'll see the first 2-3 waves of the 30th AC Collection, even though we've seen TFU and wave 1.
I'm hoping we'll see some Clone Wars stuff, however I have heard that this stuff might be kept under wraps until a newtwork has been signed up.  Who knows, ToyFair would be a great time to announce a network and premiere date.
I hope we'll find out what the Droid Factory waves are.
And, a littlle off topic, I'm looking forawrd to a whole lot of Indiana Jones stuff.

Any thoughts?

I wanna see an AT-TE!!

Wouldn't mind seeing the Order 66 packs Jedi either.

And of course, more basic figures we haven't seen yet.

That ought to satiate my unending Star Wars desires.  For a few minutes.

Most likely the Order 66 packs will be Target exclusives, and not shown at Toy Fair.

AT-TE hands down!

That or the question of it's existence answered straight once and for all.

If it does/will soon exist, then what are it's specs ie., height, length, electronics, how may clones will it holds, etc.

That will be quite enough for me.

Anything beyond wave 2. Seriously. I can't remember being this far along and not knowing at least half of next years basic figure releases.

BAF?

BAF = Build-a-Figure

The Rebelscum rumor report for 2008 stated that there would be a "Droid Factory" component to 30 figures in the basic figure line in 2008, where each of the 30 figures came with a part to build a droid. It has yet to be seen if all 30 parts will combine for one big droid or if the 30 parts will combine to form multiple droids.

I too hope that they will be unveiling this feature of the Star Wars line.

Hasbro has taken the concept started by Toy Biz in the Marvel Legends line, continued it in their own Marvel Legends line and they have now expanded it to collector waves of Spiderman and Fantasic Four figures. I think it is about time that they brought this concept to the Star Wars figure line.

It will be interesting to see the plans for Clone Wars, but I'm looking forward the most to seeing 2008 Waves 3, 4, and beyond.

2007 was a good year for new OT figures and I hope that 2008 can give us few more Cantina Aliens and Jabba's Palace dudes also.  :)

Clone Wars figures, the rest of the TFU figures, and waves 3-4.

I doubt we'll see much Star Wars wise... maybe 2008 wave 3, more Force Unleashed stuff and maybe the first wave of Clone Wars figures but I have a hunch that Hasbro will be focusing more on the Indiana Jones line.

If we're going to see the first wave of the clone wars line, we'll probably see the remaining waves of the basic line.  :P

I can see them showing everything up to CW and possibly the first wave of main characters from CW. They will save the rest of 08 CW for Comic con.

I would really love to see the Falcon get the modern day treatment in that rumored large scale format at RS. I can see this one being debunked, I cannot see Hasbro spending that much on tooling large vehicles in one year. If they make it they can count on me buying it. I would rather see that than the AT-TE. Don't get me wrong, I love that vehicle and will buy it but I prefer the Falcon first!

Ooh the Homing Spider droid. Good call.

That's one very easy toy to make. All of the legs are the same and the body is basically two equal half spheres with some antennae attach and holes for the leg assembly. VERY easy toy to make.

This should be a $20 price point for sure.

If this is made, I'll definitely buy 3-4 of them if done right (scale, articulation and paint accuracy) and at the $20 price.
