Any Clone Wars stuff you will definitely NOT buy?
« on: June 19, 2003, 01:42 AM »
As for me, the only thing I am leaning against getting is the AT-TE Tank.  I already have 3 of the EPI version, and don't have too much use for another at this time (or room for it).  But if they do something really cool like pack in a red Battle Droid or a red OOM-9, then yes, I'll get one.

 :P

I'm definately going to pick up the AAT for sure, but that's cause I never found the EP1 versions. If there's one thing I won't buy, it's the Jedi pack.

I rarely should say never to buying something Star Wars :)  However, I most likely won't buy the AAT, Gunship, or Anakin's fighter.  The rest of it is a maybe at this point.  I want the ARC Trooper and Sith Witch the most I think.

I'm actually going to pass on most of the figures except Obi-Wan and maybe Mace (we'll see how he looks).  I laugh at the rest.  If Anakin and Yoda appear in the opening scene of Episode III dressed like these guys, then I'll do some backtracking

I plan on buyng at least one of everything to open except for the Trade Fed Tank. I do not think it was changed at all for this release. If it has a new paint job like the Gunship or something then I will pick it up.
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

Come to think of it, I might pass on Anakin's fighter and the Gunship too.  If they end up on clearance, then hell yes I will get them.

As for the figures, I haven't seen anything yet that I will pass on.  I'm not too big of a fan of the ARC Trooper though.  Looks too cartoony.

 :P

I would have to disagree with you on that one.  I really like the ARC Trooper, and can't wait for it to come out.  The one that looks cartoony is Durge.  I'm sure he's going to be a bad ass in the movie (if he's actually going to be in it), but he looks like a GI Joe character in a Star Wars genre with all those weapons & accessories.

In regards to the main question at hand, you can't buy anything if they're never available.  So, there's really nothing that I won't be buying, because it's not available for me to buy in the first place.

True, so very, very true.

The ARC trooper I like the best for some reason.  I think it's the skirt and shoulder pad.  I don't know.  I like it for some reason.  Yes it's cartoony I'll admit but then again the CW is a cartoon and should look that way.  

I know what you mean though.  I may see it on the shelves (if I see it) and say heck no to myself.

There's plenty I'd LIKE to buy.

(Subtle hint, Hasbro.)

I don't think I'll be buying any of it except for a few pieces, and they are:

All the 3 packs
Obi Wan
ARC Trooper
Sith Witch

And we'll see how Mace turns out.

The Sith Witch is another figure I would definitely be buying (if it's at all possible).  And why would ANYONE want another Mace Windu figure?  He should win "Peg Warmer" of the Saga series.

More than anything, it's the design of the ARC Clone that I don't like.  I think they added too much to his basic armor and made it too unrealistic.  I don't like the added on scope on the side of his helmet (too Fett-ish) and the skirt in my opinion is kinda silly.  I do think the shoulder pad is a great idea, but that is really all I would have added to it.  Not that it's Hasbro's fault, they didn't come up with the design.

I kinda like Durge.  He will look great in my Outlander Club diorama I am hoping to get started on shortly.
