Medicom Toy Exhibition '09 (Parco Show)
« on: June 19, 2009, 02:20 PM »
There are days when I really, really wish my japanese was better.  First reports out of the Parco show... 

- it sounds like a new DELUXE SERIES program will be launched.  From what I can translate, it sounds like the first two deluxe series were being shown at Parco.  It sounds like (and this hasn't been confirmed or fully explained yet) there may be some sort of "build a" something feature incorporated, which is what makes is a "deluxe" series...

- I have also heard (but not been able to confirm or corroborate) that a Kubrick AT-ST was shown - no idea if it's a "for sale" item or just set dressing for the exhibit.  Working to lock that down...


Again, it's all rumor for now, but it sounds cool so far...  hopefully I'll have more soon.  8)

HOLY :o!  If that's the case, I hope we get some more Ewoks to step on too!

Heck, I thought you were going to like the fact that I said I wanted to use them as speed bumps...  Ok, no Ewoks then.  How about an AT-ST Driver and a Han in AT-ST Driver disguise?

Those are both cool ideas for future ROTJ figures.  A figure with a natural chase figure.

With the Deluxe Series, each figure will be more "detailed" hence the Deluxe crown.
Series 1 will be EP6 themed and center around Jabba. Each regular figure will come bith a bonus part...collect them all and you get a diorama/figure. The diorama for S1 looks to be Jabba's den. The bonus parts from S2 will turn into, yes, an AT-ST!!
I'm not sure if there were any new 400%s that were shown at the show.
I might head out today and see if i can get a peak...

I'm a Japanese translator (professionally). Where is the original Japanese page?

I am ecstatic about these new releases BTW!

These deluxe sets are going to cost the earth. I can only hope they pack them in such a way that reduces the price.

Is that a 400% C-3PO Kuby I see behind the AT-ST Walker?
