Previews/Diamond Comics Bounty Hunter 7-Pack
« on: July 11, 2005, 11:35 AM »
TheJawa.com has a report up that there is a Diamond exclusive multipack on the way called "Hunt for the Millennium Falcon"...it includes Vader, Boba Fett, Dengar, Bossk, Zuckuss, 4-LOM, and IG-88.  Although all repacks of course, it is a nice idea, and something that probably could have/should have been done during the OTC hoopla.  You can visit the link above for more, and check out some pictures of it HERE.

Is that the Saga Bossk or the POTF2 one?

Looks like POTF2 to me.

I'm all over the Temple Raid pack.  The Hoth Attack can bite my ass.

Very interesting... a year too late?  Or maybe the rumors of the OTC's return are going to pan out?

Either way, I'm going to pass on this box full of re-packs!

Thanks for moving this Jeff...better fit here.  It is a neat set, and great for those who might not have the Bounty Hunters yet, but it might have made a nice piece during the initial OTC run as well (at retail even).  I actually don't have a 4-LOM or Zuckuss, but was waiting (hoping) for a single carded re-release or resculpt.  I might still wait for that, because I don't really need doubles (or triples) of some of the others contained in that set.  It would probably be cheaper to pick up loose POTF2 versions if I wanted to go that route.  Anyways, it is a neat set, and one that many of us have discussed for a long time now.  It always did make sense, and I guess it is nice to see it coming for people who are looking forward to it.

This would've been a GREAT release when the DVD's were released.  TESB is loved by many and the bounty hunter scene is one of the coolest scenes from the trilogy.

I'm on the fence with this one, I have all of these guys loose so this may make for a cool presentation left in the box but I fear that the price will be high - close to $50 would be my guess.

Seriously.

Thank goodness there are no new figures in it though.

Dam  this would have been great last year during the OTC run but since I've since gotten bossk, dengar and ig-88 I only want zuckuss and 4-lom ???
Don't get me wrong, I'm very glad they're making this available but I only need two of the 7 figs.

I'll pass on this one... they could have easily sold me though if they had done the following -

- put in a silk robed Vader

- thrown in VOTC Fett w/ an ESB paint job

- new 4-LOM

- new Zuckuss

- SAGA Bossk

 :P

This is an easy pass for me. I have those figures already, and in some cases, three.

Ugh - another over-priced multi-figure box set exclusive to a single retailer. This like the KB Toys $50 ROTS set are both clunkers if you ask me.

I will probably get at least ONE of these, but will probably end up buying two just 'cause I buy two of everything like the lemming that I am.

Would be an okay set if they had:

1) Put a cloth cape on Vader
2) Put in VOTC Fett w/ESB Paint Op
3) Put in Saga versions of Dengar and Bossk
4) Gave us new versions of 4-Lom and Zuckuss
5) Put in a plastic base that was detailed to look like the deck of the Executor

*sigh*

Hmm. Four of the figs I don't have (Zuckuss, POTJ IG-88, 300th Fett, and the Vader), but I have the other three. I don't really want this, but then again I kinda do. I'll wait and see the price before I make my final decision.

Imperial Star Destoyer Crew = Instant Hit.

Could include -

- Darth Vader
- Admiral Piett
- Death Star Trooper x 2
- Imperial Technician x 2

All new sculpts... I'd pay $50.00 in a hearbeat.
