Legacy Collection Comic Packs
« on: July 3, 2008, 12:50 AM »
We've got a couple new looks at 2 of the new comic packs slated for the Legacy Collection in 2008.


Clicky to check out Durge & Anakin Skywalker


Clicky to check out Tol Skorr & Assajj Ventriss

Now, personally, I don't think the Clone Wars Durge (realistic style) can be topped short of a new paintjob and maybe a cool new accessory.  I made him his own functional "bola" weapon and it looks smashing (no pun...  well, perhaps a little one).  Anakin...  Eh, I'll take it.  He looks beat up.

Assajj may well be one of the greater figures.  I'm hoping for some improved articulation there.  Skorr, I have no clue who he is as that's a story arc I've not gotten to at all, but he appeared to be a separatist leader of some sort and I dig that.  I'm much more interested in this set then.

Check 'em out...

Can't say I'm excited about either of these sets, although they both look pretty sharp.

The Durge set is Meh to me. The other set just a small notch up from that. I'll get them both, but not before something else I want more.

Is it just me or does Anakin look like he just came from seeing Padme, what's up w/the lipstick  :-*  Well I guess the she had to get pregnant at somepoint   ;D 

But the old Durge I thought was pretty darn good.  Maybe they should've just saved the money reissued the old one w/better paint apps and maybe desinged the new head/helmet around the old body.  It's really going to suck if there is no knee articulation. 

Jesse the Tol Skorr is kinda interesting story arc he's an ex-jedi like Sora Bulq and theres like a competion thing going on between Skorr & Vos for favor with Dooku.  I'm just happy to get another Darksider he'll go well with the other Sith that came from the Evo set. 

Don't know if it's just me but Assaj doesn't seem to have the whole holster things for her sabers which seems odd.

I will get the Assaj set but the Durge doesnt look right to me. I don't have a Durge figure but I know this is not the one I want, with lack of knee articulation I think I will just wait for a con and try to get the SA one then. Besides skipping this comic pack will give me $17 to spend on something else  ;D

I'm kind of excited for both of these sets, as I mentioned the earlier Clone Wars versions of both Durge and Ventress.  With the Clone Wars push on the way, it will be nice to have some realistic versions of the characters to add to the shelves.  The sets don't look too bad overall.  I always wanted to look into that CW Deluxe Durge that Jesse mentioned, as it always seems to get pretty high compliments.

Durge...eh, no thanks. Pass. Now the Asajj set looks really good. I like how they threw in the little probe thing even though I have no idea what it is. Anyways, cool set. I'll buy it. :)

Did anyone else notice the figures are above and next to the wrong names on the packaging? ;)

Both packs are a snooze for me. Why does Anakin look like a tranny? And who is Tol Skorr? They'll make that guy, but we still haven't seen an Ackmena or Noa Briqualon.

Anakin's face is bruised/beaten I think...  I've not read the story, but I'm guessing it's a ROTS styled Anakin that is like the last comic pack Anakin (with the assassin droid) that has battle damage.

Jedi Insider has pics of these now too, and they also have pics of the Anakin/Assassin droid which is getting repacked into Legacy Collection packaging colors.

Here's the kicker - this repack is set #3 in the Legacy Collection.

This is a dick move by Hasbro - they do **** like this just so packaging completist collectors will feel compelled to make a purchase.

If they're going to repackage sets, why not leave the numbers off the ones thats are repacks? That way, people who already have the set in the TAC packaging can just skip those and still maintain a complete numbered collection of the Legacy Collection sets.

Yeah we also got the Anakin/Assassin Droid set photos but didn't post them since they weren't really anything special.  I'm glad some sets are getting repacked like that one though.  I love that droid and the Anakin's a good figure too.  The Luke/Shan pack would be nice to see again IMO, as it's fairly uncommon here...  I do know we could do without most of the others.

I've still yet to see the WM comic sets though.  No sign of them at all here.  I really wanted a few Wookiee/BARC Troopers, but alas I'll be lucky to get one methinks.  The Droid 2-packs were pretty darn uncommon here too (thus far) only showing at a couple WM's...  Such is the problem with WM exclusives.

I am looking forward to both of these packs I think they look pretty good sans Anakins lipstick. I also agree the repack number system does not make sense at all, glad I am not a MOC collector. I cannot see too many of those guys left, there is just too much and it's getting way too expensive with $8 figures.

Jesse,  I have not come across the WM comic packs or Droid Factory sets in store either. I am glad I bought the Droid factory set online. I passed on the Wookie comic pack for $17 at Wizard World, I think I should have got it. With gas prices I really do not want to make countless trips to come up empty handed. I rather pay the couple extra bucks on ebay, in the end I still save money. The wookie is nice but I am now officially sick of that mold. That's the only one I want but they really need to put a new head on it. It's not a must have.

I don't follow EU, but I kinda dig the first two sets, but I think Hasbro got a little lazy with the other two.

Agreed.  Making all-new sculpts for the comic packs satisfies even the bitter old purist in me (even if I don't buy them still  :P).  But the use of POTF2 Leia and all of these ridiculous colors of Fett is ballsy.
