Toy Fair 2009!
« on: January 4, 2009, 09:25 PM »
Hi.  Jan 10, making an update.  Myself, and Lando the Scoundrel, would like to invite any Jedidefender Staff who is in NYC for Toy Fair out for drinks.  Anyone else in the NYC area is welcome also.

Woo Hoo it's only six weeks away!  Any guesses on what we'll see?  What do you want to see?

I'm hoping to see at least 3-4 waves of Legacy, new vehicles, and 2-3 waves of new Clone Wars...

Jabba's Sail Barge, animated Jawas, and a boxed set with the unreleased RotLA wave.

The rest is gravy. :)

As long as we get to see a bunch of new basic figure waves, I'll be happy. It's cool that we'll actually be surprised for a change.

I'm hoping that Hasbro rolls out some big items...starship or playset wise.

I'd also like to see what Sideshow has to offer.

Sideshow wasn't at Toy Fair last year.  That was something of a disappointment.

As for Hasbro?  Here's what I think we may see...

LEGACY Basic Figures wave 1-4
SAGA LEGENDS - 1 or 2 waves
CLONE WARS Basic Figures - 3 waves

VEHICLES - Mostly Clone Wars.  I think there will be a yellow Anakin fighter, plus the two new vehicles we've already seen.

BATTLE PACKS - Clone Wars Jabba.  At least 3 others.  I think the movie Jabba will be a late 2009 release.

COMIC 2-PACKS - 4 new sets

EVOLUTIONS - 3 new sets

I'd really like to see them do the Jabba set right.  Full Dias, a backdrop to hold Carbonite Han... a completely new Jabba.

And at least one unmade denizen.

Hasbro has teased that it will be worth the wait... so I think the bar is set pretty high on this one.

It's gonna be that thin plastic vacuformed into a dais/floor...  no deco.

Oil and labor and pest control and transport and boats and cardboard are all going up in 2009.  But they're going to include a repainted POTF2 Weequay with the set, and the Max Rebo Band.  And Darth Vader...  The Hoth one, of course.

I hope when they finally re-do the Fleet Trooper that it's just a new airbrushing of the 1996 one.   >:(

We are overdue for that same sculpt in a Hispanic version aren't we?  Or an Asian or Old Man version?  Just change the head and leave the rest of the existing perfection...   8)
