Deluxe Series 3 - Tatooine
« on: June 20, 2009, 08:24 AM »
So, with all the sequel deluxeness, where is the original original?


my first guesses/wants

Ceremonial Han
Ceremonial Leia
Ceremonial Chewie
Dodanna
Hood up Obi Wan
Wuher

Or would they delve in to the early bird kit and do some re-releases of Chewie, Leia, etc?

I think a landspeeder would be a cool build-a-kuby-

What do you think?

The landspeeder as the vehicle.

Maybe another Sandtrooper - with a re-release of the black pauldron?

Hammerhead is the one I'd really want.

I'm not sure how I feel about them redoing the figures in the early-bird set, since I paid a fair amount to get those. But I'll also have to admit that they don't really fit in that well with the rest of the range in terms of their style and quality.

I'm sure it's unlikely, but I'd like to see Deluxe Series 3 like this:

Wuher
Hem Dazon
Lak Sivrak
Feltipern Trevagg
Labria
Momaw Nadon (Hammerhead)

And the BAF could be the bar!

How about:

-Owen Lars
-Beru Lars
-Gonk Droid
-Sandtrooper
-Jawa
-CZ-3

...to build a dewback. Are they doing chase figures in the deluxe series? If so, here are some ideas:

-Biggs Darklighter - Tosche Station (in Owen Lars box)
-Camie (in Beru Lars box)
-Power Droid - vintage deco (in Gonk Droid box)

I thought about some of these, but hope they stay away from remaking previously done figures like Jawa and Sandy.  If they're going to remake figs, then I hope they just go with ANH Luke, Leia, Chewie, R2, etc. for the masses.

I think this set is a bit tougher than the others, because there weren't that many main characters or drastically different outfits/incarnations of characters from ANH that we didn't already get.  The ceremonial garb is one possibility, but they only appeared for about a minute, and those aren't particularly interesting or different, IMO.

I say one or two more "bar" aliens/monsters, possibly another new empire goon, maybe an update of "classic" Leia and Luke, though I would hope that they would have enough to set them apart from their "Early Bird" releases.  "Old Ben" with hood up could be a nice variant to own, though kind of dull.

I'd be all for a reissues of the figures that originally came with paper costumes: orignal Leia in white dress, and those ROTJ figures (not part of ANH, I know), of Luke and Leia on the speederbikes, replacing the paper with plastic costume parts.

As long as we eventually get a Hammerhead and Gonk Droid, the rest is gravy :)

I wouldn't be surprised to see a landspeeder but i would much prefer a dewback. I wish we were getting a Wampa and Taun Taun instead of the at-st

Yeah, my issue with the AT-ST is that you shouldn't be able to see the Kubrick driver inside very well (unless there is a little step for him to poke out of the top).  In that sense, it is nice to have a Kubrick-scaled vehicle, but I would prefer something where you can show off the figures.  I would prefer a mini-Landspeeder from ANH, or one of the creatures that Evenflow describes over something where you can't see the figure.

The AT-ST is cool, but it doesn't exactly scream "ESB" to me, and I agree that there are some other things that might have been better. Of course they don't all lend themselves to the "build-a-figure" concept as well. In any case this does not make me want to get all of the figures in the series in the same way that Jabba and his throne does (although I still may do that).

Driver - nobody mentioned an AT-ST driver yet - chase figure? another wave?  :P

I'm also on the fence about hanging on to the AT-ST. I'll be after the figures but whether I pick them up without the AT-ST parts or trade/sell the AT-ST when in hand I'm not sure  :-\

What a bizarre wave of negativity towards the AT-ST  :(
