Legacy Collection Battle Packs
« on: September 11, 2008, 03:32 PM »
It looks like RS has a report up showing that some previous Battle Packs are making a return in the Legacy Collection (not that they need to):

Clone Attack on Coruscant
Jedi vs Darth Sidious
Jedi Training on Dagobah

I guess these are good sets for kiddos or new collectors, but they've all been out fairly recently so I'm not sure if it is necessary or not.  I won't be picking any of them up personally, but I always kind of thought the Dagobah set was kind of neat.  I would have liked it as a kid (or if I didn't have the figures included).  A nice Obi-Wan and Yoda, a decent Luke, a Vader, and an R2 repaint.  Now if they'd just put out a Dagobah playset to go along with it :P.

I think it's a good move on Hasbro's part... 5 figures still for $20... great gift for a kiddo just getting into Star Wars.

As long as these sets sell, I have no problem with them.  But I know that the Jedi VS Darth Sidious had gotten close to shelfwarmer status.

As long as these don't clog the shelves and keep me from finding the new Endor/B'omarr sets, I don't mind Hasbro putting these out again for the kiddos...

My feelings exactly.  I don't mind these being put out there again, they are likely a pass for most of us anyways, but hopefully they won't interfere with getting the actual "new" sets later on.  I'm really looking forward to the Endor Bunker set.  I don't know about other areas, but around here the recent Battle Packs seem to sell pretty well - and actually, surprising to me, the Hoth Recon set seems to be sitting the most.  That's the one I was looking forward to the most.

I'm actually kinda looking forward to seeing what the packaged Dagobah set could look like in the Legacy line. If it looks nice, I might be just lame enough to buy it and display it. :-X

Yep. Are these due out before or after the Endor Bunker and Yavin sets?

What's the B'omarr set all about?  Did I miss something along the way?

Clone Wars cartoon set. Two blue STAPs, Anakin w/ knees, and a battle droid. Can't blame you for forgeting about it... I don't really keep up with Legacy as I'm not collecting a lot of it.

According to Jedi Temple Archives, the recent re-release of the "Jedi Training on Dagobah" battle pack is fairly different from the previous (TAC) version.  All the figures have paint differences, and a different Vader is used for the "spirit of" version in this pack.  More details broken down at the linky.

Wow. I wish I didn't know that. Still, I don't know if the Vader is a strong enough reason for me to pick up this set.
