Anyone want an Amanaman on a SAGA card?
« on: August 18, 2003, 01:40 PM »
I know this guy was produced in huge numbers for the POTJ line, but who else would of liked one on a standard card?  The deluxe packaging always bothered me and I thought it was not only overkill but overpriced.  I figure if Jango KE can be re-released, then there is hope for a this fig.  I am sure I am not alone.

I don't plan on buying the re-hash of Jango Fett- Kamino Escape, so this would just be another waste of time for me. As much as I like Amanaman, I don't want to see another one released.

Amanananananananaman was overly abundant where I live, to the point he was clearanced to like $2 or something.  Even Ames had him in large quantities when Ames went OOB, so to that end I don't want to see Amanaman again personally...  but....

If they re-released him with a STURDY plastic used in the accessory staff, I'd actually pay to get him again.  I can always repaint the figure as another Amanin citizen, and I'd jus tlike having a sturdy version of that damn staff.

So Hasbro, you can make $10 off me just to buy a good accessory...  chop chop...

I'd rather see Ree-Yees re-released, Amamamamam can still be found in several K-Marts.

The POTJ Deluxe Amanaman is still readily available around here.  AND on clearance, for the most part.  I see no good reason to put it out again.

Not while they are so many other characters yet to be made...

I'd like to see Ree-Yees and Ishi Tib rereleased first. If Hasbro were to include a stiffer staff (ick) with the rereleased Amanaman, I'd probably buy it because the one I have is perpetually bent, regardless of what I do to correct it.

Sure, right after the following figures are re-released first:

- Ishi Tib
- Ree-Yees
- Sio Bibble
- Naboo Guard (red deco)
- holo Sidious

I don't think this would be a bad idea for a repack at all, especially if they can wait until after EPIII comes out.  Before then though?  I'm not too sure, but if they'd make a better staff I'd definitely be game.
