« on: June 9, 2005, 12:13 PM »
New exclusve set from KB.  8 Existing figs and what appears to be a new Silver Vader fig.   Pretty pricey for $50.

Other figures included are Luminara Unduli, Count Dooku, Royal Guard, Kit Fisto, Bail Organa, C3PO, Ki-Adi-Mundi and Chancellor Palpatine. All figures are fully poseable. Darth Vader figure measures 4.5" tall, and other figures measure 4" tall.

That one came out of nowhere it seems.  Thanks for posting the link/pic though.  Kind of an interesting choice of characters/figures though, not exactly one that's going to make it a big seller with collectors or kids it would seem.  At least I know that Luminara, Ki Adi, Palpatine, and Bail Organa aren't too tough to get a hold of here :).

It looks like a silver version of the ROTS Vader.

What bastards!

Nice avatar there rt (do you have any of the mcfarlane figs?).

Anyway, I can hardly wait to watch the reaction from Jared and Matt on this :P  

No KB here, KB won't accept Canadian issued credit cards --->non-issue for me.  

It displays nicely but what an odd, nonsensical, detached collection of characters.

At least it's available on the website.  I had a hell of a time trying to track down all the prior Transformer exclusives from them as they never listed them online.  No there's no KB's remotely close for us Minnesotans. 

I'm a sucker for packaging so I'm sure I'll be picking this up unfortunately. :(

This is Hasbro's step process:

1) Bonus Figure

2) 9.99 exclusive

3) 12.99 exclusive

4) 20 to 25 convention exclusives

5) $50 exclusive

6) $100 2-pack?

Nice avatar there rt (do you have any of the mcfarlane figs?).

No McFarlane figs.  My son kept on breaking them so I stopped collecting. BTW, front row when Ozzfest kicks off here in Mass next month.  Cant wait to see Maiden again, its been a few years.  Plus they are only touring with material from the first 4 albums.  Drool.  The only bad part is that Velvet Revolver will be filling in for Maiden for the second half of the tour :'(

Would it of hurt to put one unreleased fig in this mess.  Since this is a preorder, I wonder if the figs in this set will be the pegwarmers that are sent back  in a few months??? Kind of like KB did with the SAGA 4-packs a while back. 

Two reasons to fail.  1st, most of these figs are all background boring characters and 2nd the exclusive fig has been done to death with the Silver apps.  Wont be buying unless clearanced.  Why not offer a Obi-Wan, Anakin, Greivous, Emperor, Dooku, Clone, Padme or some other main characters.  Not that I would buy it, but maybe kids would be more interested.  But what parent is going to shell out $50 for a pack of figs?  Especially when they can all be bought seperately at a cheaper price.  Definite clearance bin material :P

Anyone else notice that the names under a couple of the figs do not correspond with the correct figure?  Talking about Dooku and Luminara. Not sure if this is a mockup, but let the errors already begin.

****.  Double **** (with a "new" figure in it).  Dammit.

Note: That's probably just a mock-up, I'm sure, but they've got Dooku and Luminara reversed in the package there.

 ::)

Eight repackaged figures with ONE "new" one that is really not that new since this is the THIRD Silver Vader?   >:(

I'd rather have the $50.

anyone think these will be "shelf sitters"? I can't imagine many people picking these up. They look great displayed but $50 is a bit much, considering that everyone only wants it for the silver vader.
