Target Exclusive Collector's 5-Pack Cases
« on: April 18, 2005, 12:07 AM »
I think they're coming out on May 8th along with the exclusive Clone Trooper/Storm Trooper...

Anyone have any idea what these "Collector's 5-Pack Cases" are?  I have a feeling these things are actually "cases" -- like Star Cases or something. That's the only thing that makes sense 5 for $9.99...

"Cases?"  Do they mean "cases" of figures?  That could be what these are, rather than some sort of protective plastic casing.

But what do I know!

Are you sure about the price? $9.99 for 5 figures is a great deal...

I thought these were going to be the next generation of those four-figure sets that used to be at TRU, but I think those are the battle-sets that are supposed to come out later this summer - ie Jedi vs. Sith, Jedi vs. CIS, Empire vs. Rebels...

It would be great if these were army builders!

I got the 9.99 price out of that Target Employee Handbook that leaked a couple weeks ago, so I assume it's accurate.  That's why I can't imagine that it would be 5 figures for that price...seems way too low.  Gotta be something else...I'm still betting it's some sort of Hasbro-made Star Case -- maybe like the ones that came with the VOTC figs...

Star Cases are good for say, keeping a Convention Exclusive safe, but no good for keeping a figure caged up inside of a cardboard and plastic hell. :'(

I do! But I still keep a complete set of everything locked in plastic hell!  ;D

For me, I would say that 33% of the collecting experience is the hunt. 33% is having a complete (for a moment) collection and the final 33% is getting that second set to open, play with a little, and display.

I dunno - I was trying not to be too nerdy by putting one of my percentages at 34%...

I would say that the last 1% would account for frustration.

Isn't $10 for 5 clam shells a bit expensive? I don't keep my carded stuff in clam shells anyway. Takes up way too much room.

No, they're not just VOTC clamshells.  That have an arc acros the top.  The VOTC were straight across.  These look nice, but I open everything.  Funny to se Hasbro admitting many people don't "play" with SW toys.

I would like to buy some actually.  But not right away.  Got to spend the money on the actual merchandise first.  At least it is not another exclusive to go after like Lava Vader and the Clone.
