When did EU Bullhonky become a hot exclusive?  Why the hell not make MOVIE Exclusives that people would rather have (with the exception of Snow Bunny Padme)

Well, I think the gunship from the cartoon would be an awesome piece, especially if it came with a clone or two.

*drools* I'd love to get my hands on one of those, so I hope this rumor is true. (Scott, regardless of your opinion on the EU, you can't tell me that paintjob doesn't look cool as all heck. 8))

This would be a prime example of using the power of the repaint for good, not evil. ;)

But sadly my BS-o-Meter is going into overdrive now, even more than before. :-\ I hope to be wrong on that though.....

The exclusives news is sorta uninteresting to me...  I'm irked at the thought of Zev being an exclusive pack-in and personally I hate any and all pack-ins that aren't in the basic line... 

That was about the only thing to catch my attention though.  I'mjust kinda meh on the whole thing.  To me, AT-AT's aren't a good idea given how easily they didn't sell before...  Oh well.

Oddly, the item I'm looking forward to most is the snowspeeder because of Zev. But, I know I'm going to be dissapointed when he turns out to be a repaint of the Dak figure.

That At-At comes is next, but I already have two open, one POTF2 and one Vinatage.

I've still got my AT-AT from when I was a kid (that would be the vintage version  ;)), but it's so beat up.  So hearing about a new one is great, since it's nearly impossible to find a POTF2 one for a reasonable price. 

I'm very curious to see what the Endor version will entail - will it actually be a repaint, or will Hasbro just slap some greenery on the box?

^ I don't have either previous AT-AT, so I'd honestly be happy either way. But if they're billing it as an Endor variant, obviously there oughtta be some paint differences.

I'll be surprised it the AT-AT retails for less than $100 in this collector oriented market. 

Will Lucasfilm allow Hasbro to add "endor" deco to it? 

I think we'll see an Endor style box, but I think everything else will remain the same.  My questions is, will we get new figures with it?  And by new, I mean someone else other than the AT-AT driver and Veers.

I KNOW we won't get newly tooled figures - that's a given.

Really looking forward to that AT-AT. A lot of these things I've never gotten as I've only been a serious collector for three years. And I'm only thirteen, so I don't have a lot of the older OT vehicles. If that list is true, I'm gonna be broke by 2007.

TRU
Clone Wars Gunner/Gunship - possibly, but I don't really want/need three of these things
Battle Packs - Demise of Boba Fett, Defense of the Senate - I smell rehashes, probably passing
Vehicles - Rebel Armored Snowspeeder, Endor AT-AT - These are possible pickups but I see at least a $99.99 CAD price on that AT-AT ($79 USD), same as the Falcon pricepoint.

Target
General Grievous Demise Action Figure - maybe, maybe not - I'm not much of a fan of Grievous
Snow Bunny Amidala - I'd love to see both animated and non versions done.
Battle Packs - Skirmish in the Senate, General Windu's Squadron see above.
Collector Cases - SAGA style  ::)

Wal-Mart - pass on these all
Basic Lightsaber w/DVD
Basic Lightsaber Classic Battle Packs
Glow in the Dark Lightsabers


Lucas - yeah, I'll end up with one, stormtrooper, plaid or otherwise.

I think at this point it appears Lucasfilm would let them add Scooby Doo Mystery Machine deco to it.

The one I most want to get is the Endor AT-AT, if it isn't priced $100+. I predict they'll pack in the POTJ Scout Trooper an POTJ Imp. Officer, as that would make sense.  :P
