Battle of Geonosis Wave
« on: July 17, 2005, 08:10 PM »
Battle of Geonosis from Episode II will include 7 figures

This would be my ideal list:

New:

-SA Mace Windu
-SA Jango Fett with swappable jetpacks and removable helmets or switchable balljoint heads
-an arena Jedi that hasn't been done before (Roth-Del Masona, Sar Labooda, Joclad Danva, Sarrissa Jeng, etc.)

Repacks:

-SA Clone Trooper (2003 Clone Wars) -- absolutely a DUH! choice
-Clone Pilot (Saga 2002 or new)
-Coleman Trebor (Saga 2002) or Pablo-Jill (post-OTC 2004)
-Destroyer Droid (some version lacking the arm cannons)

Realistically there will have to be some core characters, such as a Yoda (Saga 2002 most likely). We will surely see one of the Saga Obi-Wans. An SA Padme would be neat, but frankly not in my top 7.

Poggle the Lesser (Saga Geonosis War Room, 2003) is a very close runner-up, but he could also resurface in a Mustafar War Room set.

I'd also like a rerelease of the Saga Wat Tambor, this time with a more accurate paint deco.

How about even a Republic Commando--hey, according to EU they were active offscreen ;).

Assuming there are Deluxe/Ultra and vehicles in this wave:

-repacked Clonetrooper and speeder bike (02 Saga or 03 Clone Wars)
-repacked Spider droid (Saga or Clone Wars)
-repacked Saga Flying Geonosian with Sonic Blaster and Attack Pod
-repacked Geonosian Starfighter (03 Clone Wars)
-repacked Hailfire droid (03 Clone Wars)
-or even the Holy Grail itself: AT-TE

I would love to see the AT-TE obviously, but with the way Hasbro runs things it might be a better bet to just make our own.   :-\

Anyways, good choices... here's how I think they might do it -

BATTLE OF GEONOSIS (7 figures):

-SA Mace Windu (new)
-SA Jango Fett (new)
-SA Padme Amidala (new)
-Battle Droid (ROTS repack, painted red)
-SA Clone Trooper (Clone Wars repack)
-Kit Fisto (ROTS repack)
-Yoda (ROTS repack)

They might even throw us a bone and give us a new Clone Pilot.

 :P

Yeah, now that you mention it, a new clone pilot would be a better idea. A repack would be better than nothing though.

I do not have much hope or intersest in this wave.  It would be cool if they did make stuff like a SA Mace with cloak, Fisto with Cloak, SA Jango Fett, New Clonetrooper or some from that EE exclusive, Po Nudo, another new Seperatist.  Maybe Poggle carded?  

I just don't really see them making much of an effort with new sculpts on this wave.

Battle of Geonosis from Episode II will include 7 figures

OK, here we go with my guesses/wish list.  I'll assume 4 new figures and 3 repack/repaints for this wave of 7.

4 NEW Figures:
SA Mace WIndu - easy choice
SA Jango Fett - easy choice
SA Arena Battle Padme w/Blaster - again an easy choice
ANY other new Jedi we haven't seen yet (Bultar Swan or that Weequay Jedi Guy)

3 Repaint/Repacks:
Saga Coleman Trebor - recognizable repack of an alien Jedi
POTC Pablo Jill - ditto above
SA Clone Wars Clone Trooper - with a geonosis "dust" red paint wash

I'd like that please Hasbro!

What I want to see/My predictions:

BATTLE OF GEONOSIS (7 figures):

-Mace Windu; SA with softgoods cloak and lightsaber. Neutral expression.
-Jango Fett; SA, basically a resculpt of VOTC Boba. Includes blasters and both jetpacks. Also has either removeable helmet or switchable balljoint heads.
-Padme Amidala; SA Droid Factory resulpt with softgoods cloak and Naboo and Battle Droid blasters.
-Battle Droid; Red painted ROTS version with blaster.
-Clone Trooper; CW Rerelease with blaster and rifle.
-Clone Pilot; new head on SA Clone body with blaster and rifle.
-Obi-Wan Kenobi; SA or near SA with chains and lightsaber.

Welcome to JD, Greedo! :)

Great idea about a new Barriss. I passed on the Saga version because the pose is so stylized and bizarre it's almost a mini-Unleashed--more so than most of the Saga Jedi.

Is your Nute Gunray the one from the Geonosian War-room set?

And the AOTC preview clone isn't horrible IMHO, so it would at least be preferable to the basic 2002 Saga sculpt. *shudder*

Thanks for the welcome! :) The Gunray would be the War Room version, prefferably with new paint ops.

This looks good to me Jeff, and I'd like to see the wave made up this way as well.  From what I've been reading the Evolutions assortment isn't planned much further than the ones we've heard about (at least not in the foreseeable future), so it would be nice to get the "VOTC-ish" versions of Mace, Jango, and Padme in this wave.  Easy choices.  Jedi are probably the best bets otherwise for filling out the wave (new or repacks).  In non-movie years, prequel figures don't always do quite as well, and after the ROTS onslaught I think many might have their fill of battle droids, Super battle droids, etc.  Stick to Jedi and Clones, and that would be fine with me :).

Everybody has great ideas but I think they are too optimistic - here's what we'll really see:

1.  Mace Windu (total control)
2.  Padme Arena
3.  Kit Fisto (ROTS)
4.  Obi Wan (Saga Arena)
5.  Clone Trooper (CW)
6.  Dooku (ROTS)
7.  Battle Droid (Saga or ROTS)


All existing molds.

Again, if I only get 3-4 new figures, here is who I'd want to see:

SA Mace
SA Jango (repainted VOTC Boba)
SA Obi-Wan
Tikkes

Not to be pedantic, but they'd need to do new legs on VOTC Boba 'cuz Jango has shinplates whereas Boba does not. However the rest of the figure could be cannibalized easily enough.

And I'd love a Tikkes!

Two words: Bultar. Swan.

I think this wave is probably our best chance. :-\
