At one time I had four of the POFT2 version, ended up parting with a couple of them a while back just because I realized I didn't need that many.
With this new one coming out, I'm planning on getting two of the new one, then with the old ones I'll give one to my son to do with what he wishes, and the other one I'll most likely take it apart for custom fodder, which I am really excited about.
OOh that's a good idea. I may just do that with one of mine.
OH!! This just came to me, how about making custom painted ones. Kind of like what they did with the Vader Helmets and more recent Stormtrooper helmets???
I'm certain the we the collecting community could come up with some great designs as I'm just as certain that many of us will be looking to get rid of the older ones. So this would present a great opportunity to recycle some of them and in an artistic way.
If we could get this started, I'd be happy to take the lead on it. I still have Mary Franklin's e-mail and number and I think even Steve Sansweet's e-mail. So it's an idea we could run by them to see if LFL would be interested in doing this. It would be in keeping with the Imperial theme thus far. Being a big ESB anniversary might even help sell the idea. And heck if it all clicks maybe even have a special display of them at Celebration 5.
What do you folks think? Bring in the new AT-ATs and send off the old ones in grand style!
