Anywho, our layout was the same as the first one show here, so I played
pyschic when I tossed him the vader chase Box  :o

So, you found your chases in Boxes 1 and 4 like Padawan did?

Just to clarify, was it a HK box or a Japan box?

Yeah, that would be my guess too - a rope/grapple hook so that your Wookiees can swing from your non-existant Playset on to your non-existant Corporate Droid while yelling like Tarzan.   :P

Sweet!  Very Nice! 

I will buy, even at $30 a pop or what-ever they charge, I love those fiesty Astro Droids!   :)

Holy Crap! 

I'm digging that Target 5-pack of Clones!

Now THAT is what these 5-packs should be, FIVE pure army builders for a good price!

This could be really good -or- an incredibly lame repack...  :-\

Since there were no pictures, I'll go with the glass half-empty crowd and assume they will be repack figures with new PVC babies.   :(

Boo all you want, but I will happily buy this figure.   :)

I loves me those Clones... I didn't have trouble with either Lava Vader or the Other Target Clone, so I should be able to nab this one too.

Man, Target is kicking ass with Clones!   :)

I've seen it, and I like it.

My wife on the other hand LOVES it.

We've got the DVD Box Set and it is her official "walking-on-the-treadmill" TV show.  Whenever she's on the treadmill, she's watching Firefly.

Now, if you knew my wife, you'd know she's not really a Sci-Fi fan, but she was a HUGE fan of Buffy/Angel.  She's a big fan of that style of "dram-edy" drama/comedy hour long show format.

I'd say it's definately worth watching next week for free on Sci-Fi and from everything I've read, it's shapinf up to be a great movie.


Does anyone else question whether Hasbro really needs to have the Unleashed at $15 anyway?  Aren't they fairly identical in scale, articulation and size to McFarlane figures?  Doesn't matter whether you're talking Twisted Oz, Sportspicks or Elvis, the McFarlane stuff is equivalent at 2/3 the price.  I would have thought that the UL stuff would have had that tidy additional $5 margin.

The extra $5 must be for the "awesome" artwork on the cards - McFarlane ain't got that!   :P

Scheduled for today at 3:30pm (local time)...

What do you think we'll hear?  Same old Corporate BS?  Matt goes berzerk?  Only a few more hours to go, so I'll kill the time with wild random speculation (just rumors and speculation, no truth here yet).

Here's my guesses:

1.  Return of OTC in 2006 with 4 AWESOME new figures from a Jabba's Palace Wave... immediately followed by 15 repack figures!  Then Summer 2006, we'll get ane awesome wave of 3Cantina figures... followed by 15 more repaints/repacks!   :P

2.  Titanium Forged line of 3.75" figures - Fett, followed by Vader, Stormie, maybe IG-88.  $15 each but maybe there will be cool dioramas with them (like Attakus only waaay cheaper)?

3.  Matt stands up and throws a chair at Hasbro when they refuses to tell him how they calculated for 500th Vader.

4.  Someone asks them a question about EU and they ignore it (as usual).

Boy, I can't wait to see how close I am!   :)

Well that's unfortunate.  These companies are probably going to have to cut back on the amount of stuff they show now.  Apparently they do not have enough eyes to keep watch on their stuff.  Who knew it would turn out to be like shoplifting at a comic con? 

Yeah, that will really suck if at next year's con, Hasbro just brings a bunch of photos of the figures because some dumbass stole one this year.   What the hell is wrong with people? >:(

Oh Indy goes back to Series 2 when they had the Indiana Jones chase figure. Brent was waiting on his box from HLJ and was hoping to get the Indy chase and he got excited and kept posting Indy.......Indy.....  ;D

Sadly Brent did not score an Indy out of the box.  :'(

But I did... and it forever set me down the dark path - seeing that little fedora stick out of the silver bag was like pure joy!  Now, here I sit waiting on a Master case of Series 4 - a Kubrickaholic!   ;D

with the japan shipment, i found the chases in box 3 and 4.

however with the hk side, i found the chases in box 1 and 4..

Hmmm... Very interesting.  thanks for that, it seems like it clears the picture up a bit.   :)

Okay so here are my beautiful diagrams again.  Please note I had to flip the boxes over in the master case to get them like that.   

Just wanted to drag this back to the front (after it sunk to 7-8 pages back)...

Am I correct in hearing that Padawan found the Chases in Box 1 and 4, but Simon found the Chase in Box 3 and 4 - correct?

And, it sounds like Tony found the Luke/Vader chase in a middle box as well.

Sounds like the Stormie Twins are definately in "Box 4" and Vader/Luke Chase is in box 3 (or possibly Box 1).

Anyone care to test that theory with their Master Case?  :)


As Pete and I were speculating earlier in the thread, it sure sounds like these $15 price point Metal Figures sure had something to do with the decision to ditch the successful unleashed line...

From RebelScum's SDCC QnA:

"Is Hasbro in fact changing the Unleashed line, and if so why such a drastic change in size? Is there any chance we’ll see some ‘special’ old style 7” figures released for fans of that scale?

A change is coming for a number of reasons, some having to do with price point issues at retail, more will be revealed as Hasbro outlines their plans for 2006 during Friday’s panel. While there are no plans for more 7” Unleashed figures beyond what’s been announced, Hasbro would not rule out the possibility of more at some point in the future."[/

Remember the "One of Every Figure" Club that Hasbro tried to start and was pimping at Celebration 3?

It sounds like the buzz from Comic-Con is that the idea is dead in the water.

Gee, who would have though that offering Collectors a "complete" set of #1-56 plus 4 Army Builders for MORE than retail price (AFTER they already bought #1-36 in the week following Midnight Madness) would flop?   ::)

Sounds like the are pulling the plug on the whole thing at this point...

Could HasbroToyShop be the next to go? 

Looking at the awesome stock of Army Builders they have (AFTER they said at Celebration 3 it would be no problem keeping figures in stock), I'm guessing this store is a flop too.   :-X

Maybe, just maybe Hasbro will learn a little something about Case Assortments/ratios from the store before it goes under... (one can hope, right? :-\)

Is KM the only one getting the 5-packs though?  It seemed like they may only be getting the one...  The 501st one, which people would want in abundance.  The others were TRU's I thought?

I think the first 3 are still expected everywhere:
Rebels vs. Empire
Jedi vs. Separatists
Jedi vs. Sith

Then, the next 3 are exclusives:
TRU = Hoth Battle
K-Mart = Jedi Temple Raid
? = Emperors Throne Room

Still trying to get that confirmed at this point though...
