ROTS must have figures for you?
« on: January 27, 2005, 10:04 AM »
We have seen pictures for at least 32 figures now.   There are a few more from the Deluxe and/or other lines.  So far these are probably going to be must haves for me. 

Chewbacca (I actually like the rage action feature) 
Grievous Bodyguard
Grievous with 4 sabers
Emperor (Because of the lightsber)
Vader (I doubt I can pass him up)
Dooku (I am sure it will have the spoiler feature)
Bail Organa (I am looking forward to him)
Padme (Gotta get a pregnant Padme figure)
Agen Kolar (I don't have any Eeth Koth figures)
Taful (Looks great and it's a wookie!)
Aayla Secura (looks nicer than Saga one)
Yoda (Kind of debating but will probably get him)
Kenobi #27 (Looks great!)
Anakin #28 (again looks great!)
Luminara (again looks much better than Saga version) 

I will most likely get some others but those I am looking forward to the most right now.  15 of 32.

Well, I think I have to get them all in the basic line... seriously.  These look so much better than any of the other prequel figures we have gotten so far.  Only the deluxes so far are a let down to me...

I can't believe how great the Obi Wan (#27) and Anakin (#28) look - great to see we will get these versions right off the bat.

And the more Jedi I see, the happier I am... they all look fantastic and so much better than their SAGA counterparts... great job Hasbro!!!  Finally you've exceeded my expectations... now just throw in an AT-TE and Turbo Tank into the mix, along with easy to get SA Clonetroopers, and we'll all be happy.   :)

Tarful looks an awful lot like the Wookiee Warrior - which is great news.  Hopefully he has the same easy head to pop off like the Preview Wookiee for easy customizing...

It looks like Hasbro is going to get an A+ in the basic figure line from me this time.  I am totally blown away by almost all of these figures.  WOW!!!

Yeah, it's not that I don't like most of the line.  If I had the money to spend I would get almost all of them.

I will be most interested in anakin/vader, obi-wan, clone troopers, various jedi, emperor, and maybe a ship or two.

All of them. :-[

When it comes right down to it, I'm a basic figure complete-ist, so even if it's Anakin Skywalker #4 or a sucky Action Feature Clone trooper, I've still got to have it.

Now, if they start throwing out RotS re-packs, those I can skip.  But if it's a new figure, whether I like it or not, I'll buy it.   ::)

I'm trying desperately to maintain my vow of patience, but Chewie's enthusiasm is very infectous.   :)  That said my must haves are as follows:

Anakin Robes
Obi Wan #27 (now we just need a robed version of him)
Padme
Dooku
Mace
Grievous "Look Ma, 4 arms!"
Grievous' Bodyguard
Wookies et al
Clones et al
Jedi et al

Vader and Chewie too, the Emperor I'm not sold yet.  I kind of want a no frills version of him in the outfit represented by that deluxe figure switcheroo thing.

I want them all. I'm a basic figure completist. But the ones I'll buy first:

Obi-Wan, any version
Anakin, any version
Padme
Chewie
Grievous
GG's Bodyguard
Clones
Jedi
Wookiees!

And Vader, of course. :)

Well, it's your collection, not mine - so do what you want!   ;)

If you want three - buy three.

If you want two - buy two.

There will be plenty of stuff going around.

As long as you're not shopping at the same spot I'm shopping buy as many as you want.

I doubt you will find anyone here who will tell you how to collect... like everyone else has said, buy what you want to buy, don't buy what you don't want to buy.

Simple as that.  ;)

Darth Vader
Palpatine 10
Mace
GG
GG Bodyguard
Blue Senate Guard
Red Guard
Obi 1 or 27
Anakin 2
Anakin 28
Yoda 3
Aayla
Shaak Ti
Luminara
one of each Clone
C3PO

Fortunately, I have been able to buy most of these except for Mace, GG Bodyguard, the Blue Guard, Luminara and Palpatine-10.  I saw Luminara but couldn't buy her.  I haven't seen the others.  These are the five I will be after this weekend, plus the deluxe Vaders.

I collect loose so I really don't have the completist in me but damn, all of the figs look nice!

I want to pick up the new wookies, royal guards, tons of clones and the traditional characters like Obi, Anakin, & Palpatine.

I might even pick up a second Gunship since it's only $30 this time. 

I love the new style of the clones this go around!  Gettin close to the OT styling!

Over time I plan to get 75% of the basics, picking the best of the multiple releases like Obi-Wan and GG. But I'm a sucker for clones and every single Palps. ;)

These are my must haves:

All types of clone
All types of Palpatine
Battle droids, droidekas, Super BDs --- Believe it or not, I don't currently have a single droideka or SBD.
Grievous's Bodyguard (Battle Attack!) --- Just plain looks cool. Two.
Neimoidian Warrior --- Awesome-looking dude.
Wookiee Warrior --- Awesome-looking army builder.
Count Dooku (Sith Lord) --- Don't have any Dooku yet.
Bail Organa (Republic Senator) --- Sucker for anything Bail Organa.
C-3PO (Protocol Droid) --- Believe it or not I don't have a gold Threepio. Well, at one point I had the first POTF2 version, but I painted him silver to customize the Bespin protocol droid that told Threepio to go shove it. ;)
Padmé (Republic Senator) --- The only Padmé I have so far is EpI Tatooine peasant disguise.
Agen Kolar (Jedi Master) --- He is teh roXXorz!!!111! SA version of cool new Jedi.
Royal Guard (Senate Security) (red and blue versions)
Mon Mothma (Republic Senator)
--- I'm a fan of "Senate building"--think army building with Senators--so I need all three of these (multiples of the guards).
Ki-Adi-Mundi (Jedi Master) --- I've loved this character since Prelude to Rebellion #1, and I don't even have a figure of him. Up to now, that is.
Luminara Unduli (Jedi Master) --- SA version of cool Jedi. I like the character but missed the Saga version.
General Grievous (Exploding Body) --- This is the cloaked GG right? I only plan to get this version, except for the one that comes with the Wheelbike.
Tarkin --- Well DUH.
Ask Aak (republic Senator) 
Meena Tillis (Republic Senator)
--- Senate builders.
Captain Antilles --- Can't go wrong with Alderaanians.
Mas Amedda (Republic Senator) --- Yes definitely. I have the POTJ version, but for some reason I really like this character and figure.


And my lesser priorities:


Tarfful (Firing Bowcaster!) --- Normally this would be on my list, but I already found him leaked about a month ago. :)
Mustafar Sentry --- Looks cool.
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Red Leader Pilot) --- Appears to be the best Obi of the bunch.
Plo Koon (Jedi Master) --- SA version of cool Jedi. Not as much of a priority, since I'm pretty pleased with the POTJ version.
Shaak Ti (Jedi Master) --- SA version of cool Jedi. Not as much of a priority, since I'm pretty pleased with the Saga version.
Saesee Tiin (Jedi Master) --- SA version of cool Jedi. But not as much of a priority since I'm pretty pleased with the Clone Wars version.
Aayla Secura (Jedi Knight) --- SA version of cool Jedi. Not as big a priority, since I have the Saga version.
Vader's Medical Droid (Chopper Droid) --- Intriguing.
Polis Massan (Medic) --- Intriguing.
Utapauan Warrior --- Looks really nifty.


Eventually I will get most of the rest (e.g., Yoda, Darth, and so on) but they are secondary.
