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)

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.

Really?  I wasn't sure if it was quite so amazing.  I guess the question is whether or not the red ARC Trooper is the standard Clone or not.  I'm just hoping that I can trade those off for the other two Clone Troopers.

The Padme is very cool.  Especially since I was such a dope and didn't get the Clone Wars maquette.  But assembly-wise it doesn't fit together very well.  The joints aren't quite right.

I didn't think my disinterest could be greater.  Apparently it can be!

I've got some spare red ARC's if anyone has either of the other Clone Troopers available for trade.  My Clone Wars case packed out alright though.  Here's what I got in my case:

4 x ARC Trooper (RED)
4 x Yoda
3 x Snowbunny Padme
3 x Obi-Wan in Clone Armor
2 x Anakin Skywalker
2 x General Grievous (blue)
1 x Anakin Skywalker variant
1 x General Grievous variant

Really?  I wonder if that's why my PC at home was running so slow yesterday.

Scored the AOTC 30 AC tin set.  This is probably one of my favorite sets of the entire lineup.  For some reason I really like the Jango in this set, and the Clone Trooper is a very nice addition.

I don't know that it's THAT bad of a question when you think it through.

It wasn't that bad of a question, but Sprry75 shot my SSG wad for me, so I had to go with something else. 

What, there wasn't anything at Dumbtroo.. I mean Sandtroopers to make fun of this week?  ;D

I don't know that it's THAT bad of a question when you think it through.  Hasbro might be able to use a scaled up Galactic Heroes line to legitimately compete with the Sideshow superdeformed figures.  But somehow Hasbro would blow it and not be able to cash in on the kitsch factor that the Sideshow SD figures have, and it would probably wind up more like the silly Galactic Mpire figures.

I'm definitely glad to see those Pit Droids crack the top four.  They were among the toughest figures to get over the whole span of the modern line.  I definitely hope that Hasbro will include the accessories that were unique to the later offerings in the 2-packs.

As for the rest of the poll?  I think Hasbro's definitely going to give strong consideration to any figure that made the top 8.  But I also think that the polls have been hit so hard by army builders that the whole thing borders on a farce.  And what will be equally ridiculous is that Hasbro is going to insert some core characters into the Saga Legends line that they were planning on anyway, and that is bound to start off a whole new round of whinging.  Any way you slice it, this will be message board fodder for months to come, and the most ridiculous part about it is that a lot of people will be arguing about figures that most of them already have.   ::)

This is more of a wish than anything else, but I would definitely like to see Count Dooku added to the Lords Of The Sith line.  But then there's the matter of just how long can that line last?  There really aren't that many Sith in the entire Saga of films, unless we start getting into different versions of Sidious and Vader, etc.
