I'll preobably pick up a Sandtrooper as it would help to have a 2nd POTJ sculpt around instead of all the POTF2 sculpts. Would be perfect timing for Hasbro to do multiple colored pauldrons, but looking at the case assortment that Nataku provided, there isn't much room for such a concept. Oh well, there's always customizing :)

Those case breakdowns aren't too bad
Good amounts of the new ones and the repacks are generally army builders anyway, so the repacks wont be left hanging.
Good thinking hasbro, maybe you aren't run by complete morons just a bunch of halfwits.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

There are now THREE case assortments for the Cantina wave!

Post-OTC Wave2 - Due November 2004:

2x Feltipern Trevagg (Cantina Encounter)
2x Myo (Cantina Encounter)
2x Dannik Jerriko (Cantina Encounter)
1x Stormtrooper (Death Star Attack)
1x Sandtrooper (Tatooine Search)
1x Scout Trooper (Endor Raid)
1x Han Solo (Mos Eisley Escape)
1x Chewbacca (Hoth Escape)
1x Yoda (Dagobah Training)


Post-OTC Wave2, Rev1 - Due January 2005:

2x Feltipern Trevagg (Cantina Encounter)
3x Myo (Cantina Encounter)
2x Dannik Jerriko (Cantina Encounter)
1x Han Solo (Mos Eisley Escape)
1x Chewbacca (Hoth Escape)
1x Yoda (Dagobah Training)
1x Luke Skywalker (Dagobah Training)
1x Darth Vader (Death Star Hangar)


Post-OTC Wave2, Rev2 - Due January 2005:

3x Feltipern Trevagg (Cantina Encounter)
2x Myo (Cantina Encounter)
2x Dannik Jerriko (Cantina Encounter)
1x Stormtrooper (Death Star Attack)
1x Sandtrooper (Tatooine Search)
1x Scout Trooper (Endor Raid)
1x Luke Skywalker (Dagobah Training)
1x Darth Vader (Death Star Hangar)

So, that's 16 carded figures for the 2005 line so far.  8 NEW figures, and 8 repack figures.   ::)

Why is the Sandtrooper only one per case?  Sure, the Scout and Stormie are repacks of something already released, but do they still not get the concept of peg warmers?

Here Hasblo, let me help you out.....

2x Feltipern Trevagg (Cantina Encounter)
2x Myo (Cantina Encounter)
2x Dannik Jerriko (Cantina Encounter)
2x Stormtrooper (Death Star Attack)
2x Sandtrooper (Tatooine Search)
2x Scout Trooper (Endor Raid)

Done and not a one will sit on the pegs.  You could ship that case for months and months and it would still sell. 

For your next clue, burn the ******* Han mould and never make it again.  Thank you for your time. 
1x Darth Vader (Death Star Hangar)

I'll be buying everything EXCEPT the repacks of early OTC figures. Repacking OTC already is pretty pathetic IMO. There's just so many cool older figures that could have been used as "filler" instead, but hey, what the hell do I know? 

NO MORE REPACKS HASBRO!!! ::)

I'd dig some mpre repacks if they were some of the harder-to-find POTF2 figures, like Pote Snitkin, Removable helmet Vader (the current one sucks, IMO), Ishi Tib, Zuckuss, and Captain Piett.  Hell, I'd even take a Tarkin. I don't know how well they'd fit in the line now, what with the VOTC figures out there. (Guess they'd fit in as well as Bib and the G. Guard.)

Just please stop releasing Cantina Han.

[img] But it sucks that the real completists now have to buy all of these again:



Nobody has to buy anything, it's their own silly choice.

I also agree with Hasbro's Missing Integrity, They should be repacking older cooler figures like Zuckuss, Darktrooper, and GOODIES!
Not more CTC Han...
Hell, I'm surprised we haven't gotten a Darth Maul or few again

Dont give them any ideas, somebody may be listening :-X  As for repacking there are a ton of different sculpts out there of the core characters they could use.  Even though I have the following, I would love to see them on OTC cards:

Han Hoth
Han Bespin
Luke Hoth
Luke Floppy Hat (Flashback)
Chewbacca Bespin Escape
Lando Bespin Escape
