Revenge of the Sith / Re: Battle Packs (5 figure sets)
« on: April 25, 2005, 05:33 PM »

I thought I should point out for all you "variation" hunter guys that there is currently an error on the 5-pack box.  You can see on this picture I took that it says it includes "Stormtrooper" Armor.  Oops!  :-X

No idea if they will fix it or not, but it's there for now...

Also, this set looks to be the only one with new/re-worked figures in it.  the next 2 sets will be composed of total re-hash figures.  Nothing new but maybe the paint decos.   >:(

Rob, was it under the Vader DCPI number still, at $12.99, or what?

No, it is NOT the same after all...

087-06-0311 = Lava Vader

087-06-1489 = Exclusive Clone

087-06-1490 = 5-pack of Collector Cases

My info says that Target is set for an aisle re-set on or near May 8th.  At that re-set time, they will have pegs clearly marked for these, so keep an eye out for your Target to reset the shelves and out these out...

On a side note, whats everyones take on the package?  Will the OTC cardback make a return this Fall or in 2007?

The other side of the card was blank/white, so no one knows for sure yet...

I think the OTC cards will re-surface again for this exclusive at least, just like the Holo-Emperor had.


Sounds like this figure is sold out now...

Not sure if it's just sold out for the day or if it's gone for good.

I believe one of the Q and A's (at GH maybe), asked if they would be returning in 2006...and they said "Yes, and no".  Still sounds like they are continuing either way, so that's good news to me.

I think what they meant by that was "YES" as in there will be more unleashed out in 2006" but "NO" as in little to no NEW figures.  Expect a lot of re-cards for now...

It sounded like they wanted to get some of the older pieces that are selling for fat cash on eBay re-released so that folks could pick them up.

And that sums up all the attention I gave to Unleashed over C3.  Oh, that and the Emperor/yoda piece looks really cool.  If I was collecting these, I'd love that one.

Ok - this is going to sound stupid but, where did this figure come from?

Who's going to have it as an exclusive, how much, when is it available?


It is this summer's convention exclusive figure and will be on in the fall...


This is about as good a place as any to post this...

I handed over to Hasbro a copy of the JD Top Ten Polls for each of the movies, as well as this poll for the "best of the best" top ten request list.

They said they'd take that info home, so maybe, just maybe, we will have had a hand in helping them to plan out 2006/2007?   ;)



Yes, that is him and he is surounded by a rather large group of JD dudes as well...

In fact, if you do a bit of detective work, you'll see that JD Staff members made their way into pictures posted at Rebelscum AND GalacticHunter.  Man, did we get around...  :P

Waldo's got nothing on Matt!  ;)

Maybe this wasn't mentioned there, or maybe this is a dumb question....but are these expected to be a "wide" release?  Not limited to a certain retailer or anything, right? 

Right now, they are supposed to be everywhere, not exclusive, and should have a $20 price tag.

Also, they only have these 3 sets planned so far, but at the QnA they indicated that sales of this line will determine whether or not they go back and do more. 

When we were talking to the Hasbro guys later, they said they had quite a few figures on the list already that they'd like to do if they get the chance to make more - Padme, Obi-Wan, 3PO.  Almost made it seem like if there is a next wave, it'd likely be those three.


Umm how old is Chris Berry??

He is 35, but he has that disease like Emmanuel Lewis or Gary Coleman where you never get really old looking.

What no one snagged a pic of BDW??? Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Why would we post a picture of BDW in the Princess Thread?  Look someplace else (like the JD picture thread, C3 edition) for BDW.   ;)

I dont know how i feel about the packaging, but i love the line. I hope they keep it going.

The packaging is VERY cool in person.  The figures are actually in a tray that is designed to slide out without opening it.  You can see the notch to grab the figures out on the far right of the JD picture.  That way, you can get a good look at them without opening it.

Each package has a large head shot on the left of the package.  Very cool and a bit different from what we are used to seeing.

So for those who went to C3, can you give any feedback on the unproduced toys?  You could not make out squat on any of the pics shown.  And as far as the proto Death Star Playset.  I realize it was only a drawing? but what could be made out on the layout?  

Nothing of the sort was said about the Death Star being in development, and there were no images whatsoever.  

I think he was talking about the pictures Vic Wertz had at the Collector Panel about unproduced toys.  At that Panel they DID have a drawing/plan shown for a DS playset that was planned around 97.

Both JesseJames and I were at that panel, and some of the toys they showed were great!  Specifically on that DS Playset though, it was basically a 3ft diameter round ball  It opened into 2 halves and inside each of the halves were removable "environments" that could be taken out and played with separately (like removable shelves).  There was a Trash Compactor shelf, a DS Detention Shelf, a Falcon Hangar shelf and more.

You could use it as a HUGE diorama, one big playset, or several smaller playsets.  So, you basically had a 3ft tall "Death Star" for your X-Wings to fly around OR a kick-ass diorama or a super-fun toy for kids.  It was verycool, just waaaaaaaay too expensive to ever get made.  It was targeted at a $250 price point!  :o  No wonder it never got made.... no retailer thought they could sell it.  :(

It looks like SirSteve's Guide has pics of a packaged sample of the Anakin to Vader Evolutions set.  You can view them HERE, and scroll through the pics to see a few more shots.


We got pictures HERE at JD too ya know!  ;)
