Props Assortment
« on: August 17, 2005, 12:34 PM »
Ok, this is probably something that won't happen, but how cool would it be if Hasbro started some sort of Diorama Props Assortments?

For $14.99, you get a figure (probably repacked knowing Hasbro), along with several "props" - and not just little dingy accessories, but cool stuff that is recognizable in the Star Wars universe. 

These would be a step up from the typical deluxe/ultra figures.

Here's what I mean... and there are obviously many more possibilities -


- TPM Anakin Skywalker w/ giant Pod engine, Pit Droid, spare parts, etc.

- AOTC Clone Pilot w/ Gun Pod, weapons, removable helmet, etc.

- ROTS Emperor w/ office throne chair, desk, lightsaber, red outfit w/ removable black hood, etc.

- ANH Luke Skywalker w/ moisture vaporator, farm droid, storage crates, etc.

- ESB Chewbacca w/ incinerator belt/track, Ungaught, box of C3PO parts, junk, etc.

- ROTJ C3PO w/ Ewok throne, Ewok, baby Ewok, spears, etc.


Thoughts?  Just trying to come up with something new...

ROTS Chewie w/ wookie weapons, holographic tactical display (alternate battle and Jedi Council scenes), chair for Yoda

Sounds like you just invented a new name/price point for more complicated deluxe/ultra figures to me...  :P

I think the deluxe figures have been kinda hit or miss.  Some (Luke w/Bacta Chamber) were phenominal, others (Amanaman) were a waste for the price.

I'd be OK with spending $15 for a small vehicle type thing, but I really wouldn't want the deluxe type stuff to slip past the $10-12 mark.

I'd like them to do more accessory sets like this, but they should be $10, like the other two assortments were. However, these sets are usually hit and miss for Hasbro. Remember the Episode 1 sets? I don't recall them selling well. Remember the Target sets from 2002? The Endor and Death Star sets were awesome, as was the Geonosis set, but the Hoth set pegwarmed for months.

So it all really depends on the figure, accessories, and price.

Chewie, as a fellow diorama-maker, I love your idea!  If Hasbro was less of the huge conglomerate, and more of the collector-minded, we'd probably see these.  Actually, there have been some great ideas from the company over the years, amongst the force-flippin' figures and other crap :P.  Did you see in the custom section of RS the guy who made the pilot and droid collection?  What a great idea!

Daigo-Bah, I'm not sure what you're referring to on who make the Pilot and Droid collection?

I think it's good if you're a customizer/opener/army builder. But if your a non-opening collector then you probably won't want to spend high end money on it/unless your a completist-then your mad at H for making you have to buy something again :-\

I think that'd be very cool CHEWIE, however that's pretty much a vehicle to me.  A Hoth one with a Vehicle maintenance engergizer would be nice too... 

Like someone said though, this is basically accessory sets at a higher price.  Those Target sets saw clearance in my area at $10 so I'd question how likely this would be to happen, but it'd be nice I think of what we could get.  Some of those would be nice dispersed among deluxe figures or small vehicle assortments though.
