Burger King Glasses Figures!!!!!!
« on: November 27, 2003, 10:05 PM »
Take this with a grain of salt!!!!!   Little birdie just inform me
that the Burger King Glasses sets are going to attain some
pretty nice resulpts.  For the A New Hope (Grand Moff Tarkin),
Empire Strike Back(Black Bespin Guard) and Return of the Jedi
(Wicket W.  Warrrick).   I can't wait to see if this pan out!!!!!!!

Very cool. Im excited about these glasses as well, but I hope they make an effort to differentiate them from their true vintage counterparts (nothing drastic, just a date stamp embedded in the bottom or something)

Good find Scott!   8)  I'd be pretty surprised if those weren't the real deal.  The glasses look fine, and I'm happy to see that they're different than the Vintage ones.  Figure rehashes?  Not surprised to see that.  Hopefully Stan's right though, and there'll be a few resculpts thrown into the mix.  Otherwise... Well, I'll just have some extra loose figures that I don't want or need I guess.

I'll still enjoy the glasses though!   :)

I never got these two figs, so I'll be happy to pick them up. I like the look of the glasses too.

What's wrong with the E1 logo on the Maul glass? It looks like its been Photoshop'd on there. Probably just a correction after the packaging/ad photos were shot, but odd.

Not suprised by the pack-ins, otherwise.

Hey Guys thanks for the support, but remember I said take
with a grain of salt!!!! When I see the Rep and will ask what up
they may be more. We will have to wait to see!!! I am glad to see
that htis glasses are new!!!!!  This is pretty exciting because
I have the three sets and really did not want to rebuy  basically
because of the figures!!!!!!!!!!

If they want to repack a Darth Maul figure, it should at least be a decent version like the MOTD version or the cloth goods sculpt.  NOT THAT WASTE OF PLASTIC!

Anyway, these are a cool novelty item to say the least.

Thanks for the info STAN, and here's to hoping that they might throw in that black Bespin Guard you had mentioned!  That would be very cool.

Well....

I like the glasses, the figures I can do without.  Some day I may just have to find some firecrackers and pretend I'm 8 years old again.  If only to thin out the plastic I am amassing.

I hate to be an ass but I don't care to own any glasses.  I got a few of the Burger King from eons ago and don't want any more.  It sounds like the figures are rehashes.  If they make some resculpts or something like a Black Bespin Guard then I MIGHT consider buying a couple.  I can just see these things sitting on the shelves more than the Clone Wars line that so many have griped about clogging their stores pegs.  This concept just scremans to me SHELF WARMER SUPREME!!!

Wouldja lookit them. I guess they're alright, though I just want the glasses.

They could have found some better figures to stick with the prequel ones, IMO. I'm liking the Carkoon set too.

I'm disappointed that most of these figures are identical to ones we've been sold before.

Of all of them, I'm indifferent on the glasses, and only mildly interested in the Luke figure--the only new variation here. I won't hunt for it, but if I see it and like it in person, I'll buy the ESB glass.

They could've expended a little more effort to make these more intereseting to me. A cloak for Obi-Wan (even rehashing the Pilot Obi one from '02) a cloak for Anakin...I don't think anything could be done to make Maul appealing, but why not reissue someone rare, like Swimming Jar Jar or Battle Padme (or, much more farfetched, Sio Bibble)?

That Slave Leia keeps getting the 10-dollar treatment, wonder what the marketing research behind that is?
