I don't really like the selections for the multi-packs and I hope they are just that, TRU Multi-packs instead of screen scenes.  I can see Hasbro packing in Naboo Final battle figures in a TRU multi-pack and making them exclusive.  Why would they go through the trouble of making new molds for Qui, Obi and Maul again?

Hey guys thanks for the support and compliments...

I don't want anyone to think I was out for sympathy at all. I just wanted people to realize just how cut throat people can be... Even though it's not about " website politics, ill-will, or egos"  ::)

I have talked to my friend in HK and heard a few more tid bits...

I know people are wondering what's up w/ the Y-Wing and X-Wing...

Both will be done in different colors (obviously) and from what I have heard the Y-Wing is looking to be  a throwback to the vintage in that the R2 unit will be removable. Though that is not yet been set in stone but if so it will include two pack ins... a pilot and and R2 unit.

The X-Wing will be the Saga/FX version which also now allows a different R2 unit to be placed inside. Haven;t heard of any pack ins yet on this piece (if any).


TRU four packs are still on tap and at least three new ones are on schedule. Though the fate of these could very well see end as I mentioned in the past... due to sales (or lack thereof).


There is a Cantina wave being thrown around (at this point) and there have been a few figures talked of...
Of course Hem Dazon and Banniss Keeg (both mentioned before)... though the list now sports possibles of Bom Vindim, Gotal, and the Givin...

"Rumor" has it that we could also see the much wanted "U" shape part of the Cantina bar section.
This I believe depends on where the chips fall w/ the second series Cantina sets.


The Cloud Car is still on tap at this point and obviously will be another retailer exclusive.


The three pack concept is still being talked of... and I think would be a HUGE welcome to fans/collectors.
Those were the packs I talked of earlier w/ builders from the OT. Sales on the CW packs thus far look great... so hopefully Hasbro will take a huge note and this will end up a go.


Some people have talked about (and asked about) a new Jawa... As far as I know there will be a Jawa released... however I have not heard it will be included w/ the R1-G4 as some are wondering. I will look into that a little more though...

Jimmy where's Hermie? Jimmy's where's Bib?
Well fear not they have not got the axe yet... though they have not been confirmed yet either. It's very possible we could see these through other avenues and not just standard carded figs.

There are the TRU four packs, Screen Scenes, and I have even heard talk of more possible FC exclusives in the future...

Of course w/ Hasbro anything and everything is subject to change. Some of the pieces I hear about I hear a year or more in advance... It's weird like that.

But don't take my word for it...
I mean GalacticHunter will post about in 6 months or so...

Thanks again guys for the support and belief. I do this for fun and nothing more...

A HUGE thanks to Nick and Chris (Del) from The Jawa... Two great guys part of my former alumni  ;)

One thing I did forget to mention was that we should also finally see the as yet produced Vader from the Bespin Dinner scene.

Which was once to be an inclusion w/ the CD-Rom line style...

Enjoy girls and boys  :)

Yeah, I agree.  Jimmy is the man.  Jimmy, is there any talk about the next Fan Choice Poll and when it will be?  

BTY, has anyone put together a list of all the 2004 figures as well as the newly rumored figures yet?  I sure would like to see it.  I would like to see the blanks filled up wave by wave.

I was thinking the same thing Simdog, I'd like to see everything listed as well...plus, we might be able to figure out some more of the waves for 2004 if true.  I know I'd like to see a Dagobah wave (Luke, Yoda?), as well as an Endor wave (maybe redos of Endor Luke/Leia, more ewoks, etc.)  Anyways, great news, and thanks again Jimmy for dropping knowledge on us, I know I always keep an eye open for your posts :).

2004 is shaping up to be outstanding.  I just hope that the sceen scenes are good ones.  Lets keep our fingers crossed for Hermi Odle.

Guys, Jimmy also mentioned the CD ROM Vader Bespin.  Good news, but I wonder what happened to Hologram Nute Gunray.  I guess it will come out one day.  It would be a good figure to pack into a TRU Naboo 4 pack with Swamp Obi and the Trophy OOM-9.

Jimmy, do you know any thing about an R5-D4 possibly showing up?

The more "colorful" discussion from this thread has been removed, and placed into a seperate topic: "Who's got the scoop?"  That thread has been closed since all relevant parties have said their peace.  Now let's get back to the fun part of discussing these great new figure selections, regardless of who made the announcement, and when!

Thank you!   :-*

Wow.... this looks like some nice variety by Hasbro with new figures, along with some much needed resculpts (Endor Han).

I really can't wait to see some pics of this stuff...

And too bad it's my bedtime (according to my wife), I'd like to comment more! ;)

So, how exactly does one pronounce: Wol Cabbashite??

I know how I did and it doesn't sound like a real great figure  ;)

I've heard of possibles for 2005... though it's far to early to even bother mentioning IMHO.

Things that are "on tap" for 2004 could get nixed... nevermind 2005.

The AT-TE (3 3/4" scale form) was talked even talked of at one point... That was a piece I had heard about in early Feb of this year and mentioned back in April on The Trade Fed... though I don't see this piece happening anytime soon... if at all to be honest.

It'd be a pricey piece for Hasbro to go w/... and right now I'm not sure they want to introduce that caliber of a toy to the market.


David is definitely right (as Stan in his PM to me) Hasbro is looking into a hefty style playset... but nothing for '04 that I have heard of.

I think 2004 alone will have collectors bushy eyed for the year... From the very few things I have got to see there is some incredible stuff coming down pike...


I promise you that all the info I receive is from a very reliable source... and not some retail lists. Granted I run w/ things and take the chance they could not see the light... though I think many collectors are at the very least curious to know what goes through the minds behind our favorite toys... even if they may not see some come to fruition.

Although I have been accused of "guessing" and coming out lucky... Which I find quite amusing...  ;)

If I'm that good anyone need their future told?  ::)

I hope that all enjoy..
