Saga Collection '06 / Re: Battle of Naboo Wave

Hmmm... 8 figures in this wave?  Again, I'll assume a 50/50 split for NEW/repack.

4 NEW Figures:
SA Obi-Wan Kenobi (Final Jedi Duel) - soft goods cloak, lightsaber, hilt, commlink
SA Qui-Gon Jinn (Final Jedi Duel) - soft goods cloak, lightsaber, hilt, commlink
SA Droideka - w/clear blue shield and the ability to fold up a bit
Bravo Squad Naboo Pilot - pick one of those ILM cameo guys and give them a figure

4 repaint/repack figures:
Gungan Warrior (the one from the Faambaa)
Captain Tarpals
Queen Amidala (Battle)
PotJ Battle Droid (Boomer Damage version)

That would work just fine...  ;)

This is kind of a neat idea, and if there are some new molds sprinkled into the sets, they'll have a winner on their hands...of course, the price will have to be somewhat reasonable which is the part that worries me.

And I hope they don't go crazy on the packaging, the clone sets were WAY overdone - we wanted white mailer boxes and got freakin gold (double boxing adds A LOT of cost to the product).

The packaging will most likely be fancy window box because Hasbro and EE both know that if it's in a fancy window box they will appeal to the packaged collectors more than a plain white mailer box. 

And, according to the info I recieved today, there are no new molds in this set just re-paints of existing molds.

Imperial Pack:
R3-T6 = PotJ Sneak Preview R3-T7, repainted white with red markings
R4-E1 = PotJ R4-M9, repainted white with red markings
R4-A22 = PotJ R4-M9, repainted white w/orange markings
R2-Q2 = RotS Sneak Preview R4-G9, repainted gray with white/black markings
R3-T2 = RotS Sneak Preview R4-G9, R2 colors with red dome

Rebel Pack:
R2-A6 = RotS Sneak Preview R4-G9, repainted white with green markings
R2-X2 = RotS Sneak Preview R4-G9, repainted black with white markings
R2-C4 = RotS Sneak Preview R4-G9, repainted white with red markings
R2-M5 = RotS Sneak Preview R4-G9, repainted white with yellow markings
R3-Y2 = PotJ Sneak Preview R3-T7, repainted green with white markings

as always, while this is the current plan, all info is subject to change by the whim of Hasbro

...or a red clone commander that wasn't in the movie, and a green repaint for that matter...

Well, we got the #33 Red Clone Commander because when Hasbro was working on the figure line-up for RotS that is what Commander Bly looked like according to the Official Site Database.  #33 was going to be Bly.

Then, we got the #33 Green Clone Commander because it was an easy re-paint and Hasbro has proven that's what Fall will be all about for RotS - easier than a new sculpt.

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!


30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Battle of Death Star Wave
« on: July 17, 2005, 11:32 PM »
Battle of Death Star from Episode IV will include 6 figures

OK, six figures to guess, eh?  Once again I'll assume 3 new, 3 repack/repaint.

3 NEW Figures:
SA Death Star Gunner
SA Han Solo (Stormtroop Disguise)
SA Luke Skywalker (Stormtroop Disguise)

3 repack/repaints:
Saga 04 TIE Fighter Pilot - army builder = OK
RotS Tarkin with "Old Guy" head - easy to do
FF Death Star Droid - hasn't been out since 98 and it was an exclusive before

I'd be happy with those...

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Battle of Endor Wave

Battle of Endor from Episode VI will include 8 figures, each with a bonus holographic mini figure

OK, let's see - here's what I would like to see in a Battle of Endor Wave:

8 Figures - I'll assume 4 new, 4 repaints:

4 NEW Figures:
SA Luke Skywalker (Jedi Outfit) w/Endor Poncho and Helmet
SA Princess Leia (Endor) w/Endor Poncho and Helmet
SA Han Solo w/Trenchcoat and AT-ST Helmet
SA Scout Trooper (no variants!)

4 Repack/Repaint Figures:
AT-ST Driver - the one from the TRU 4-pack
Admiral Ackbar - a recognizable character who hasn't been out since '97

And finally, use the Wicket/Logray Mold to give me two different Ewok 2-Packs:

A) brown/tan with short spear
B) gray/black with 'rock-on-a-stick' club
C) reddish-brown with bow/quiver
D) dark brown with long spear

Call them Lumat, Romba, Warok, and Wompus.

Another great deal with Greg!   :)

He purchased some Kubricks from me and sent the payment lightning fast! 

Thanks again, Greg!


Saga Collection '06 / Battle of Tatooine Wave
« on: July 17, 2005, 10:51 PM »
OK, first, what Battle happened on Tatooine? 

I remember a droid search and stuff, maybe the Docking Bay Escape?  Eh, anyway...

"Battle of Tatooine from Episode IV will include 7 figures"

I'll guess that the Sandtrooper that was shown is in this wave...  :P

Anyone want to start guessing?

Wow, then you know they were completely picked through.  That's just wrong.  I trust you will not be using this contact again? 

Yeah, I've got Series 5 pre-orderd from so I won't need to trade with this guy again...  ;)

Jeff, sorry to hear this, it`s one of my nightmares.
Were the boxes of 12 opened, or did you get 4 boxes not in a master case, just

OPENED, as in the little perforated, pull here to open thing was missing - the box tops were taped shut to the front with scotch tape.   >:(

8 Figures in a wave means that in a box of 12, at least FOUR figures are going to be 1-per-case.   ::)

Either that, or we're looking splitting up the 8 in two cases (which is stupid - why have "waves" if they don't ship together), OR we're going to get all of them at 1-per-case with older figures mixed in.

Anyway you look at it, it already sounds hard to track them down, and that's not even factoring in a reuced shelf space that may come with next year being a non-movie year.    >:(

My Kubricks were delivered today via EMS (yes, they were delivered on a Sunday afternoon - weird!).

I ordered a Master Case (at a reasonable price) from one of my asian trading pals but instead of a master case, I recieved four boxes of 12... all of which were OPENED

He apologized and offered "Sorry I must have mis-understood what you wanted.  That's all I had to send you".   ::)

Serves me right for not getting my pre-order into or HLJ in time.  Anyway, I don't think we'll get any chases, because each of the boxes is laid out like Simon's non-chase box description:

1. Vader
2. Vader
3. Vader
4. Stormtrooper
5. Stormtrooper
6. Vader
7. Stormtrooper
8. Stormtrooper
9. Emperor
10. Nien Nunb
11. Hoth Han
12. Bespin Luke

I was left with 2 choices - just keep them OR send them back and eat like $80-90 on the shipping cost (since I'd have to pay to ship them back and then he'd ony refund the price of the Kubrick boxes, but not the shipping too).   :-\

Since I didn't want to waste the cash, I decided to keep them.  At least he did send me back a bit of my money to kind of apologize, so that was something at least. 

So, my Kubys are here, but I've only got 6/9 of a set.  Guess I will have to go the eBay route and chase those last 3...  :'(

1. Is "old Anakin" part of the normal Vader figure or is it a chase as well?

Yes, the "old" Anakin Head is the standard figure.  The Luke Head w/Damaged Mask is the Chase.

2. Is it possible to get Luke and Han variants in the same box or is one limited to HK?

Neither is limited to HK or Japan, they have both been found in both places.  What is different between the HK and Japan Master Cases is the placement of the Chase figures (apparently).

It is NOT possible to get BOTH Han and Luke in one box of 12.  You get 2 Han Stormtrooper -or- 2 Luke Stormtrooper in that particular box, no one has found chase box with one of each.

If Hasbro has one ounce of professionalism to their process, the instant that a figure is painted and approved, someone would create a set of Orthorgraphics clearly labeling which color is to be applied to each portion of the figure from all relevant angles - probably noting RGB values as well as simple paint shade terms.  

You know, I just noticed this today, but something tells me that if Hasbro has a photo of Commander Bly in their Comic Con Q n A Presentation then I'm 100% positive that they've already got other photography of the figure to use if they have to go through a re-approval process or something lame like that.

I noticed this over at GH today, don't know if everyone caught it...

From Adam Pawlus:
Why no R5-D4? No mold. I asked. I didn't want to see the "Attack" mold again, and I assumed you felt the same way-- if you did want it, well, my apologies. You can blame me here. I don't like the Attack mold and will do everything in my power to prevent you from having an opportunity to buy it again, which basically boils down to you not seeing it in these sets.

So, the answer for why no R5-D4 - they wanted to use pre-existing molds for these guys and couldn't get them to make a new mold/sculpt.   >:(

Here's hoping we get a new R5-D4 eventually...
