DVD 3-packs. Ugh.
« on: January 26, 2005, 02:46 PM »
Well, it looks like we're gonna be getting some more DVD 3-packs, this time for the Clone Wars season 1 & 2 DVD release.  This probably mostly just affects (annoys) the completist carded/packaged collectors, though I think they do look kinda spiffy.  Just not excited to buy more packaging variations on stuff I've already got several times over now.  But hey, that what I do.  :-[

Here's a shot of 'em, courtesy of Mousedroid.com:



So, who else is buying these besides Jared and I...?   :P

Pass.

I've got those figures loose, no plans to buy them again.

It will be interesting to see what the price will be and where they will end up.  I would imagine the leader would be Wal-Mart since they did the DVD packs for the OT.   Might not be a bad deal if they end up in the $10-15 range like the OT sets did...

Likely a pass here as well, provided I can find the ARC trooper on his own sometime before that.  I've got the rest, and while they are kind of spiffy looking in the 3 pack packaging, I don't need more of those.  Jeff is right though, if they ran around $10 like the other 3 packs, not too bad of a deal at all, considering 3 figures at Target right now would cost you $21.  Like I said, probably only pick this up if I miss the ARC the first time around, then maybe just pass on the extra Anakin and Obi-Wan to our nephews, or put them in the little "toy box" we keep here for them.

If they're cheap, I'll get them, but otherwise I shall pass on them again.

Awesome!!!!!

Another repack with 2 old figures and 1 new one!!!
Way to raise the bar hasbro!!!
Maybe if they had put the actual clone troopers in there they might have sold.
Do they have monkies running that company or what???
Oh and i know monkies are smart but the ones there must be stupid monkies, yes thats it stupid munkies!!!
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

I've so far passed the Toon toys over...but if these set are ten bucks I might reconsider getting one of each of these to open.

But that might make me want to pick up all the other ones...how could I have some of these and not Yoda?

If these are $10, I might pick them up.

But I think they missed the opportunity of a lifetime to do a 3-pack of Clones. :(

If they're $10, I'm all over them, since the only toon fig I have is Grievous.  It would be a great way for me to clean up.

I'll be passing on these as I already have them single carded. Don't have the room for more rehashed stuff.

If they show up here I may get them depending on the price other than that, pass.

I seem to be a sucker for packaging these days - despite the criticism that the OTC DVD 3-Packs received, I like em - so I'm sure these will make their way onto my shelves sometime.

I'm still waiting for ESB to hit $5.  If they survive Walmart this weekend, it's likely they will.  To that end, I feel the same way about these.  I've got the figs, if they hit clearance, I'll buy them.  I can live without these.

I'm just wondering if these will (hopefully) hit at the same $10 price point that the OT DVD sets did.  The animated figures tend to run a buck or two higher, so it's possible they may show up at $15, which I won't be terribly thrilled with.

The OT sets blew threw pretty quickly out here.  Saw a few ESB sets sit around for a while at one WM, but other than that, they were all gone within a few days, if not a few hours at some places.

So based on that, I'm gonna hop on these as soon as I get the chance - no questions asked!

Funny, up until about two weeks ago, I could still find even ROTJ on the shelves at full retail.  Only one or two mind you, same with ANH but I can go out and buy about 20 ESB packs tomorrow if I really want to ::)
