Wookiee Army
« on: August 23, 2004, 12:12 PM »
So who is planning on creating a grand Wookie army with EP3 figures?  Anyone planning on getting several of the Yarua (senator) figure for an early start?

I hope to pick up several wookiees.  I usually don't have huge armies, but like to build little ones.  Plus, I really enjoy Chewbacca, and wookiees in general, and I'm glad we're seeing more of them (in action) in the next movie.  I hope they make several, and I'll be happy to buy them :).

I don't know if my Wookiee army would rival my Stormtrooper, Clone Trooper or Battle Droid armies, but I'm definitely interested in the prospect.    I would just be concerned that they would only make 1 generic Wookiee warrior, a Chewbacca and a Tarfful in the basic figure line.  I think we might see another Wookiee or two in the vehicle and beast pack lines, though.  It certainly makes the ranks seem a little thin.  Right now, we've got 3 individual Wookiees in the line:

Chewbacca (who knows how many versions)
Rorworr
Yarua

So another individual plus an army builder or two would definitely be nice.

I'll certainly be all for as many Wookiees as they can make. We're off to a good start with Tarfull.

I'd even roll with some generic repaints. If they can crank out a couple army builder versions with interchangeable armor parts (an actual play feature that can work with these guys) then vary the armor plastic color, they could get a lot of mileage out of a few good generic sculpts.

I think there's a little hidden Wookiee fanbase that will go full-steam when ROTS hits. I have a friend who isn't into the figure line, but is all about anything Wookiee. He was trying to get several of us to help make a Wookiee swoop gang in Galaxies a while back. He'll dive into toys if they do these guys right.

I'm very excited about the prospect of Wookie army-building, and am glad to see that I'm not the only one!

A Wookie warrior 3-pk similar to the Clone Wars army packs would be a nice addition too!

Much like i've mentioned with Teebo, I think Hasbro should do this...

Make one definitive "generic" wookie sculpt.  Neutral pose, good (or preferably GREAT articulation, like VOTC Chewie), and then release him like that in a deco....  Any generic basic deco.

Later release an army builder of 4 figures, the same exact sculpt, all unique fur colors/patterns.  Like a black with grey-ish stripes, tan, brown, and maybe older looking brown-grey.

Pack in a variety of weapons...  Voila.  Army Building Wookie goodness that, unless E3 blows chunks, would suck the $ right out of the collector's wallets.

Completists will want all 4 variants plus the carded.  Army builders will want massive armies of all 5 figures, and extras to paint, and what kid isn't gonna want wookie troops?

Seems logical to me.  :)

Oh yeah, I'll be putting together a wookiee posse.

I definitely want to see some sweet army builders this time around. I hope Hasbro gives the SA clone with a new head and ships the hell out of it. I want to be literally swimming in SA clones, not crappy red striped ones with half-assed tripod cannons. I want decent droids with a more rigid plastic, and any other army builder that shows up on film.

Hmmm, Snoova with the Vanilla Ice do. 

Sadly, i'd probably take a NEW Snoova if it was to-scale and incorporated some of the more modern features, like "separate" armor pieces (maybe removable), a nicely detailed/painted ax, maybe some soft goods...

That Snoova figure has NO PLACE in any Wookiee army of mine.  It's garbage I say!  GARBAGE!  >:(

My girlfriend at the time's parents gave me Snoova as a present.  I looked at smiled and said thank you.  I got home and gave it to my brother, he wasn't too happy to get it either

If Hasbro resculpts anything from that SOTE line, I hope its Boussh Leia.
