Target "The Rise of Darth Vader" Battle Pack

<< < (4/7) > >>

Scockery:
I'd already forgot this was coming.  It'll be a Target exclusive in the USA.

At least they reissued a somewhat desired Darth Sidious (inaccurate for the scene, but so is a lightsaber brandishing Vader).

Another chance at that Vader for those who missed him.

The current Shock Trooper mold. (Hasbro loves Shock Troopers)

I'd almost be on board if I didn't already have that Sidious and if they included FX-6 instead of chopper droid. Actually I never got either droid, but FX-6 looks cooler.

JediJman:
Hmnn.  The packaging looks terrible, but it's been so long since I was excited about new Hasbro that I might actually convince myself to buy it.  My biggest gripe with this one is the complete laziness of the offering.  Nevermind the ugly package and repack figures that will turn away collectors, from a kid perspective the figures and accessories don't make any sense.  There's an operating table, but not a removable armor Vader?  So, a kid is going to put light up saber vader on the table and enjoy playing with that somehow?  Vader has a light up saber, but Palps does not?  The two sabers don't look like they're even from the same toy line.  Palp's saber is removable, but Vader's isn't?  What?  Don't even get me started on the droid.  I really don't mind them churning out repacks and love the battle pack concept, but this just feels like Hasbro is going out of their way to provide the worst offering possible for kids and collectors.  This is what I would produce if I was intentionally trying to drive away purchases.  There, I just talked myself out of buying it.

That wasn't so bad, was it?  ;D

It was for me.  I despise the lull we are in right now and it's a rotten feeling to almost want to buy a worthless turd because of Hasbro's inability to produce anything remotely worthwhile.

Ya know, if the droid actually wasn't made of insta-melt plastic...  *sigh*
