Silver Fett and Clonetrooper coming...
« on: April 10, 2003, 06:56 PM »
Well, looks like we're only half way through (at the very least) with these silver, vac-metallized figures apparently.   :'(

GH is reporting that the Mexican convention exclusive will probably be a Silver Boba Fett, most likely available later on through the Fan Club/WOTC/Insider/whatever...  They're also reporting that a Silver Clonetrooper is on tap as well, for a promotion similar to the Silver R2 one that ran a while back at TRU.  These are both supposedly due out on similar types of cards that the Vader and R2 were on.

Not quite sure what to think about this really.  If either of these winds up being anything close to the Vader fiasco, heads will have to roll.  But if they're available in Silver R2 type numbers, then I should be able to stomach it.  Either way, it's already giving me a total headache just thinking about it...   :-\  Sure to be a cool figure thought!

EDIT:  Now that this is no longer going to be a Mexican Convention exclusive (as originally rumored), I got rid of the sad face for the message icon.  Hopefully we'll all be able to get a hold of this figure with relatively little hassle...   8)

Why a silver Clonetrooper though? Weren't these silver figs meant to be "Anniversary" type figs? The Vader and R2 were for the 25th anniversary of Star Wars, the Fett is the 20th Anniversary of ROTJ. So whats the deal with the Clonetrooper? Is it for the 1 year anniversary of AOTC?  ::)  I think I would much prefer a silver Stormtrooper than Clonetrooper. At least it would keep up the OT theme going of silver figs.

I agree with Chuckles on the Stormtrooper versus Clonetrooper issue.  And Hasbro better release that Boba Fett in the states.

Riddle me this, where in the hell is my silver Jar Jar? Huh?! Or what about my Wuher? Pote Snitkin? Come on, these are the figures that truly deserve the vac metlization treatment!

I certainly hope you're kidding about the Jar Jar figure there!  The whole purpose of these silver figures are to honor the 25th anniversary (Darth Vader and R2-D2), and this time it's suppose to be for the 20th anniversary of ROTJ.  I understand why're they're doing a Boba Fett version, but I don't have a clue why they're doing a Clone Trooper.  Should have done a Stormtrooper, Gammorean Guard, Jabba the Hutt, or maybe Luke Skywalker for the anniversary special of ROTJ.

Yes, I do want a silver Jar Jar! If they are making silver AOTC figs, I want a silver TPM fig...

 ;D

In case that one emoticon didnt stress that point:

I kid! I kid!

IMO Fett is not that bad of a choice considering how many collectors dig his figures.  I like most of us just hope that he is available, I read somewhere through the SW Fan Club.  Anyone here know anything about that?

The president of the Mexican Fan Club claimed that, but it was more or less denied by the official US Fan Club. Guess we will just have to wait for an official statement on StarWars.com.
