Ultra Assortment
« on: August 2, 2005, 11:15 AM »
So if I've read correctly, we'll be seeing the return of the Ultra sets in place of the Deluxe. Do you think they'll be themed as well like the '04 Saga attempt? What do you think will be good, or likely choices?

I'd like to see:

DeathStar trooper w/ work station (those cool round one's)
Bespin Solo w/Torture rack.
C3PO w/ Ewok ceremony Chair and Ewok
Uncle Owen w/ Mosture Vaporator

Can't really think of anything from the PT, but I'm sure you guys will have ideas in spades. ;)

Yavin Rebel Guard with Mini tower (maybe expandable like the Jango Kamino DLX), staff and binoculars.

Yavin Rebel Technician with Mini Shuttle (enough to hold a couple of pilots, etc) , ladder, and light sticks.

Hoth Rebel Technician with Mini Shuttle (see above)

Death Star Gunner with Turret

Obi-Wan Kenboi with Top of Tractor Beam

Ewok with rescaled Catapult

Gragra with Market Stand

Cantina Bar Round Piece with any unmade Cantina Alien

C-3PO with Oil Bath

Nut Gunray with Walking Throne

Palpatine or any Political Fig with Senate Pod

Yoda with Escape Pod

Palpatine with Throne and Oversized Window Backdrop


On a side note, would love to see a Screen Scene similar to the AOTC War Room with all Imperials as seen in ANH.  Table with sitting versions of Vader, Tarkin, Wulf Valaren(SP), Motti, and a couple more.  Make it able to connect with two 3-packs.

Great ideas, guys.

What's the difference, really, between Deluxe and Ultra, besides the bigger card? They're the same price ($9.99) right?

Here's my rather long list of ideas. I'm not sure if all of these would belong in the Ultra area (some may be vehicles, others beast assortments):

NEW:

Anybody with Senate pod

Confederacy battle droid gunner with turret

Death Star trooper with workstation

Emperor Palpatine throne and window backdrop

entirely new Jabba from Docking Bay 94 -- 2004 DVD version

Nute Gunray on mechnochair

Senate central podium with Palpatine -- the previously unmade outfit from the "as my first act with this new authority, I will create a grand army of the Republic" scene

Somebody with moisture vaporator -- preferably old or young Owen, but more likely ANH Luke

Star Destroyer clone gunner with turret

Trade Federation battleship pilot throne

Yoda Escape Pod

A 4-pack Ewoks army builder

Various clone army builder packs -- not statue clones

Death Star I conference room interlocking table segments with one figure apiece (thus making it feasible at Deluxe pricepoint)--Tarkin, Vader, Motti, Tagge, Wulff Yularen, etc.

Mustafar conference room sections with one figure apiece--Poggle, new Nute, new Rune, etc.



REPACKS (some of these were originally $9.99 Deluxe or Ultra, others were $7.99 or $11.99 but if you rereleased both at $9.99 it'd average out):

Vinty Ewok catapult

Episode I Droid Scout Tank -- the thing that looks kind of like a mini-AAT -- I already have one but wouldn't mind more

Episode I Eopie with variant Qui-Gon and EpIII Obi-Wan pack-ins

Episode I Gungan Assault Cannon with different Gungan warrior instead of Jar Jar

Episode I Gungan Catapult

Episode I Gungan Scout Sub with Obi-Wan

Episode I STAP -- already have one but should be released again

Saga Deluxe Flying Geonosian with Sonic Blaster and Attack Pod

Saga Ultra Ewok with glider

Saga Ultra Jabba the Hutt -- I already have one, but I think it should be released again

Saga Ultra Wampa

Clonetrooper and speeder bike (02 Saga or 03 Clone Wars)

Spider droid (Saga or Clone Wars)

Here is what I would like to see:

Eopie with Obi-Wan Kenobi
Young Beru and Owen Lars with Moisture Vaporator
Jabba's Denizen's II: Attark, Worrt, Bane Malar (or some character not yet done from Jabba's Palace)
Warok and Lumat with Ewok Catapult
Death Star Gunner with Turret

The statement below is true.
The statement above is false.

Prequels - Wave One

- TPM Mecho Chair w/ Nute Gunray
- AOTC Moisture Vaporator w/ Owen Lars
- ROTS Gelagrub w/ Clonetrooper

Sequels - Wave Two

- ANH Hoversled w/ Rebel Technician
- ESB Radar Cannon w/ Hoth Rebel
- ROTJ Speederbike w/ SA Scout Trooper

Prequels - Wave Three

- TPM Massage Chair w/ Gela Twin and Sebulba
- AOTC Hover Chair w/ Cliegg Lars and Beru Whitesun
- ROTS Senate Pod w/ Emperor Palpatine

Sequels - Wave Four

- ANH U-bar section w/ Tonnika Sister
- ESB Torture Device w/ Han Solo
- ROTJ Catapult w/ Ewok

I would really love to see a clonetrooper riding that Slug on Felucia.  I just can't see Hasbro doing it though.  Although anything clonetrooper related may have a chance. 

Speaking of clonetroopers.  I would like to see them make a clonetrooper with the WWI inspired bridge cannon.  They could make it fire out the cannisters in the back and shoot their plastic projectiles Hasbro loves so much.  Again I doubt it gets made. 

I am somewhat surprised they never made the Death Star Gunner with cannon or whateve that is called.  They could have even included a tower with it.  Then again that would cost them too much money in plastic. 

Yes, a moisture vaporator has to be included with some Tatooine character at some point I hope.  I am thinking with Owen, Beru, or Cliegg or a combo of those characters.  However, if Hasbro ever does I am sure they will include it with the 900th Tatooine Luke variation. 

Since Hasbro is anti playset.  I would hope they could somehow make the Sarlacc into a deluxe set of some sort.  I know that is awfully tough to do and would most likely be way underscaled but it's a thought anyway. 

I really like the Ewoks with catapult idea.  I personally want to see Chief Chirpa get the modern treatment at some point.  Along with Warok and Romba of course.  Use some of that money earned from the overprices exclusives and throw in all 3 ewoks with the catapult.  Ha-ha!  Yeah right.

Han with the torture rack is an obvious pick for a toy.  You know they are dying to repack that Bespin Han from the POTJ line someway. 

The U-shape cantina bar is a must toy as well for all of us with an imcomplete bar.  Throw in some cantina patrons that HAVE NOT BEEN MADE YET.  I will absolutely crap my pants in anger if they package Kenobi, Greedo, Hammerhead in there with it. 

Hermi Odle - Hasbro was whining about Ephant Mon costing them too much money to make...blah..blah...blah.  So, make Hermi and put him in the Ultra set along with Worrt and Sgt Doallyn. 

Yoda with Escape Pod.  No brainer there.

Those would all be most excellent HunterofthePegs... I'd probably buy the following for opening for dioramas and some custom fodder...


-Hermi Odle & POTF2 Rees-Yees x 4

-POTJ Scout Trooper & POTJ Imperial Officerx 4

-Mygeeto Snowtrooper & ROTS Commander Bacara x 4

-Dresselian Commando & POTJ Sullustan Pilot x 4

-SA Luke Jedi & 500th Vader x 2


Damn, that could get expensive!

Eh, I want Ephant Mon bundled with Hermi Odle!  But yeah Ree-Yees is a good choice to. 

Han and Luke Stormtrooper 2 pack I'd go for.
