Hasbro should offer build a trooper bonus action figures
« on: September 8, 2008, 05:03 PM »
Today we are buying the build a droid bonus parts with TLC action figures, it i :)s great. But in the near future Hasbro could make a campaing of building your bonus trooper.

For example black stormies, white stormies with removable helmet, imperial gunners, atst drivers,
rebel fleet troopers, hoth troopers or endor troopers.

Or perhaps they could launch a "Build a pilot campaing", the figures could be known pilots or generic pilots like awing, b wing, x wing, tie pilots, etc.

If you agree with this idea, please propose which trooper you would want to build in such a promotion for the future. :)

What if you don't agree?  ;)

Actually, it's an interesting idea.

What I like about the build a droid thing is that even if you end up with an odd mismatch of parts, you can still stick them together for a cool freak-a-droid-arama.  Ending up with three left legs but no right legs is...not so cool.  I would go for battledroids, however, as any extra parts can go towards "battlefield litter" without being morbid.  Anyway, I'd rather any new 'troops be carded or in a multipack so that their more readily available for army building.  I'm sure that if a coveted new trooper came out as a Build-a, instead of obscure droids, there would be all sorts of outrage.

With almost 50 astromechs left to be done according to this site: www.angelfire.com/droid/astromechs/ , my preference is for Hasbro to keep focusing on astromechs for at least the next dozen waves.  ;D

It does for me and most people.  I feel bad for you, as its cool and has dozens (or at least a couple) of exclusive, never-before seen images of droids!  You  probably need to change your pop-up settings or something.

Btw, I have lotsa websites!  :P

Anyway, is there some jedidefender rule out there that anytime I reference one of my sites I must declare that it's mine?  The "Full Disclosure" clause?

I don't, either.  But I want to spend money on that site even less.  It's just a harmless angelfire pop-up. 

Really, it's worth it!  8)
