Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC/OTC Purchases
« on: August 6, 2004, 09:25 PM »
I nabbed Dagobah Luke today at WM.  Still in search of Yoda and Spirit Ben.  I saw also but didn't buy the repainted Bespin Luke, Bossk, and IG-88, the first I've seen of those.  

The Jedi Luke repack seems like he has a different cape - or is it just packaged differently?

I saw the VOTC figs for the first time today (no Luke) and left them there.  I have the Bespin figs but no joy yet on the Dagobah wave.

I don't think either is likely, but just for the record if they raise the price or the scale, I'm out.   ML style SW figs would interest me, but not enough to continue.

Good choice.  I always liked him.

All I know is I will never buy another Han, Fett, Vader, Stormtrooper, Chewie, or Yoda.  I won't even buy these, unless and until Hasbro repacks them down the line.  If they don't, they don't.  My concern always has been this has been a trial balloon to see if we'll fork over $10 each for EP3 figs, and from the rumor in one thread, maybe they think we will.

I don't mean their out of ideas, just that there's few left that hold my personal interest.

2902
There's a lot of cherry picking with ML.  There's so few charcters I care about - Mary Jane, Nightcrawler, Shadowcat - that are left to do.

For $10 all of these figures should have 14 POA.  There's no excuse whatsoever.  The 'more articulation than you can imagine' ad is false and the crap shoot method they're issuing these in doesn't do a lot to part me from my money.

I always liked that figure, even before the improvement.  He was always one of my favorite characters anyhow.

$12?  I won't pay that for any SW figure.  Good lord.

Mine are banished to the Frito Lay EP2 buckets.  Remember those?  Actually most of my collection is put away at the moment, awaiting a day to be released again.  By then most of it will be resculpted, I'm sure.

No way.

I think Ben said it best: there's just so much that fatigue is inevitiable.  I know this is kind of my theme but it's true.  And as I get older, my interests veer.  I think if I had a better paying job, my attitude might be different, but then maybe they wouldn't.

I for one am glad there are only seven new SW figs until some time this year or next.  A break is necessary for me to sustain enthusiasm.  At the same, other lines (also like Ben) such as ML or LOTR or Buffy or what have you are more interesting, but I'm no more able to be a completist anymore.  I just buy what I like now and don't worry about the short packs or rare stuff.
