Saga Collection '06 / Re: Battle of Naboo Wave

I guess that we can surmise from the Naboo Soldier's pegwarming status that Hasbro probably won't be making a running change and doing this figure over in red.  You can see some guys in the same uniform in red on the cardback photo.  ;D

I saw the ARC-170 in spacewhale deco and Darth Vader's Sith Starfighter today.  These might be repaints, but they looked really good!

The one interesting thing that I've noticed is that gas prices have gone up a little bit since the election.  Hmmm, coincidence?

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Target Exclusive Imperial Shuttle

As a Canuck, this is so frustrating!  I want this ship pretty bad, but the shipping would absolutely kill me.  I sure wish there was a company in Canada that picked up Target exclusives.  :'(

What, you're not one of the Canucks that lives within 200 miles of the U.S. border?

I scored the regular versions of Face Off wave 2 today.  Very much liking Wolverine VS Sabertooth.  I always liked Sabertooth's original costume more than the one that got made in the Legends line.

The other two sets are cool, too.  Apparently Mandarin in the regular set does NOT have a removable helmet, so if you want to see his face you need to track down the variant.  Also, in the case of the Punisher set it seems to make more sense to get Jigsaw in regular clothes and not the Punisher's costume.

I could get behind these.  I'm guessing that Tarr Seirr is the other Cerean Jedi in that scene, right?

Sounds cool.  Drop me a PM and maybe we can work out a deal.

So I saw a 400% Vader with removable helmet today.  I have to admit it was very cool.  I don't know what the price was, but I get the feeling it was priced higher than I wanted to pay.

That is Rebelscum's observation based on the photograph.  Haven't we learned just in the past several weeks that the Battle Pack photos that we've seen were mockups and not production pieces?  People on this forum were incredulous because of the photos of the Tantive IV battle pack, saying that they won't be buying that battle pack because of the paint apps on the Stormtrooper.  Fastforward to Hasbro being asked about it in the Q&A and they say that those were mockup photos and that the production item will feature clean Stormtroopers.

I think that if we really want to know what the packout for this Battle Pack is going to be, then that question should be asked in the Q&A sessions.  Just because Rebelscum says something doesn't make it so.

Managed to score some more ARC Troopers today.  Got 3 blue ARC's, but I still can't get that white Clone Trooper.  Weird.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Bespin Luke?!!?
« on: November 26, 2006, 12:03 PM »
I thought the bespin Luke was also on tap for the VOTC line.

It's been on the rumor lists for some time.  The SAGA version was a good offering for a couple of years, and the OTC repaint gave us a clean version.  And we're getting it again in the Dagobah Battle Pack.  But I don't think that figure fits in with the aesthetic that we're getting with figures these days.

A VOTC style Bespin Luke would definitely be a welcome offering.  It's a pretty logical figure to offer seeing how we've got a couple of great TESB Darth Vader's, and it would make sense for Hasbro to make a counterpart to those great Vaders.

And here's what we're getting where you thought it was 3 x Evolutions Felucia grunts:

2 x Bly repainted as grunts (grunt on the far right, and grunt on the far left)
1 x Evolutions 327th Star Corps with removable helmet

In other words, on 2 of the 3 grunts, I can see the white ball joint neck post, and not the removable helmet like in the evolutions version.  Those are Bly (Clone #33) repaints.

You may be right.  However we've been lead to believe one thing with Battle Packs and given another before.  Most notably with the Capture of Tantive IV Battle Pack.  So once again, the final product (or Hasbro in the Q&A) will tell us what the real deal is.

It would be very strange for them to change their tooling and paint apps for a figure that's been previously released.  Especially when Hasbro seems to be all about cost cutting wherever possible.

But I guess this lineup leads us to the conclusion that this is going to be a mass retail Battle Pack and not an exclusive.  I had been hopeful that perhaps we would get a 327th Star Corps Clone with a SG kama, ball jointed hips and a Felucia ground beetle.  Oh well.  ::)

I saw the Modok wave today.  I was thoroughly uninspired except for Moon Knight.

Pics are up for this set.  Hint:  search somewhere in central europe!

Here's the lineup:

1 x Aayla Secura (ROTS # III/32  Aayla Secura - Jedi Knight)
1 x Clone Commander Bly (ROTS # III/57  Commander Bly - Battle Gear!)
3 x Clone Troopers (from the Clone Trooper - Sandtrooper Evolutions 3-Pack)

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
« on: November 25, 2006, 09:30 PM »
Today I scored the TPM and ROTS tin sets at KayBee.  They're normally priced at $34.99, but with the weekend's Buy One, Get One 50% Off sale, the two sets came to $52 and change.  Then throw in the fact that it was a purchase of over $50, they threw in a $10 gift card that's good until Christmas Eve.  NICE!  So they were basically $21 each after all of the discounts.
