After seeing the pics, information, and comments of what has been shown at Toy Fair (and around the web the past few weeks/months), are you starting to get an idea of what you will be (or would like to) picking up this year? Although we still have some figures/toys yet to be seen, and hopefully some surprises, now that we have some official information (and prices), I've been trying to piece together what I'm hoping to pick up.Basic Action Figures
Most likely I'll be picking up the majority of this line, although I'm not a completist. Collection 2 figures have all looked great, and I will likely buy those in their entirety. Collection 1 figures I might be more selective with, although I will pick up all wookiees and clones, and then the "best" versions of the main characters.Deluxe Action Figures
Not sure about this yet, but I think I will probably get the "Anakin to Vader" deluxe figure. Undecided on the Emperor, but I think I might get that one as well. Passing on that leaping Obi-Wan thing though.Battle Arenas
These didn't turn out nearly as cool as I first thought, and I think I will likely be passing on these as well. If they look better in person, I might reconsider, but now...at that price...I think I'll pass.12" Figures
I'm not much of a 12" figure collector, so likely passing here as well. I will probably pick up that ROTS Chewie we've seen some pics of here and there (even though it is a KB exclusive). Wanted to get the OTC version, but just never did.Vehicles - Battle Vehicles
From what I've read, this consists of the BARC Speeder, AT-RT, and Boga. I will likely be picking up all three of these, but I'll check them in person to be sure.Vehicles - Assault Vehicles
Again, from what I've read, this consists of Obi-Wan's Starfighter, the Droid Tri-Fighter, and Grievous' Wheelbike. These I'll have to wait and see on (price and space), but I'd like to for sure get Obi's fighter and Grievous' wheelbike, and we'll see about the Tri-Fighter.Vehicles - Gunship (Large)
ARC 170 Fighter and Gunship repaint. I'll be passing on the Gunship for sure, already have 1 and barely have the space for that one. A really cool ship though I think, and quite large. I would definitely like to pick up the ARC 170, providing I have the cash
The Mustafar playset. It seems a bit underwhelming from the pics, but I'm still considering picking it up, just because I haven't bought a modern playset yet and they were always kind of neat in the vintage days. Undecided on this one for now.Unleashed
From what we've seen and know is coming, I think I'll be picking up all three. I for sure would like to get the Anakin/Obi-Wan (I passed on the AOTC versions), and I think these would make a nice "centerpiece". Grievous I may pick up as well. I really like this line a lot, but finding the space for them is proving more and more difficult. I've seen rumors of Chewie, Clonetrooper, Yoda and Sidious...and I'd consider each of those as well.Force Battlers
I'm guessing none of these for me. The price is too high, and I'm not all that crazy about them. If they produce a Chewie one, I'd probably pick it up, but otherwise for now I'm staying away from these I think.Galactic Heroes
Three new sets so far is all we've seen, and I'll pick up all three if I see them. Another line that I think is fun, and relatively inexpensive, to collect. I'll get the 3 ROTS offerings, and hope that we see more later in the year (hopefully more OT as well).Jedi Force
Surprised we're seeing these and "Force Battlers" side by side, seem like the same type of thing. I have picked up a few of these previous releases (Chewie, Droids, Vader), and might be tempted to get some of these new ones. I'll likely get a Han to put with Chewie, and the Yoda looks kind of neat too. The others I will have to consider at the time, but again, not sure if I have the room for them...and they are more for the kiddies (but I guess all of this is....supposedly, right?
Maybe. Maybe. That's all I can say at this point. I sometimes like the little odd-ball additions to the collection.Attacktix
- $5.99 to $9.99
Nope, not interested in these at all.Role Play
- Various Prices
I've never picked up anything like this in the modern line (have one vintage Vader saber), so I'm kind of tempted to get one lightsaber, just to have one. I'll also look at the nerfy Chewbacca bowcaster. Might be fun to play with with our nephews (or kids someday).
Lots more coming this year, but this is a long enough post as it is. These will probably be the main focuses for me, but it is more than enough on its own. Lots of money spent this year, our checkbook is already shivering in corner
. Any idea of what you are looking towards picking up this year?
