Revenge of the Sith / Re: Episode 3 Packaging Revealed!!!

This is very eye catching.  I like how they incorporated the CW elements such as the big character pic on the bubble.  I like the duel in the helmet.  I like it's new and different.  I don't like it's orange, because we've been there, but it's lava, and we haven't been there, so.

The true test will be seeing the figs in them.

It's certainly unique.  Very flashy, very kid oriented.  I like the Vader looking over everything.  Boo action features.

I think he's in one shot, exactly.  It's been a while, so I'm not sure.  I worry too about the viability of the line next year, but I think it's reached SW status now, without all the gross overstock baggage SW comes with.  So it may still be appealing to retailers.

Sly looks a little... mmm, off, yeah.   I commented elsewhere how she looks like Zan from Farscape.  It's probably because (according to Adam at GH, I think) she was sculpted way back in 2002.  

Action features: Boo, hiss.

I love her.  She's great.   :)  Maybe Hasbro will surprise me and pull a Dignitary type thing where the handmaiden comes in two flavors, Rabe and Padme.

And maybe the Cubs will win the Series.

All very good.  The wookie looks like he (she?) shares some parts with the Saga Bespin Chewie, but that's ok.  Sly looks like Zan from Farscape.   :)

I'm filled with sadness.  No Snow Bunny Padme.  No Armored Obi.  Sigh.   :(

There's always hope, I suppose, but then I've been waiting for an orange handmaiden Padme since May 1999, and thought I had one finally today, only to discover she's someone else.  

It's like Wedge all over again.

It's very slow here as well.  Only TRU carries the full range of the Trilogy figs, and they haven't gotten any in in quite a while, apart from a few cases of the WK.

I really like Gothmog and Dark Galadriel.  She wasn't on my list for sure, but she gives me hope for a White Lady of Rohan Eowyn next year.

Those are all really cool.  Now where's my Nightcrawler!  :)

Right on, Chewie.  Spuffy's thoughts:

Coruscant Wave:  Yay.  The Wookie and Pablo are very exciting, and I suppose Sly is too.  Wonder how many Wookie Warriors we'll get out of this new body...

Naboo Wave:   :o  But wait - no handmaiden Padme?  I suppose a custom will be easy enough now, but come on.

Cantina Wave: Long in coming.  Not as excited by Dannik as the other two, but then nothing can be as exciting anymore as 'They're making Oola!'  or 'Wedge!' or...

Sneak Preview Wave: I miss the mail away sneak peek.

CW Animated: No Armored Obi?  No Snow Bunny padme?  Like Handmaiden Padme or Wedge, Hasbro has something against these figures.

The Fan Choice being delayed because of spoiler info, that's bizarre.  What figs from the first 5 movies spoil the 3rd one?  Any ideas?

He looks good, but yeah, 5 POA?  Nope.

Hasbro never met a repack they didn't like.  It's obvious they will have exhausted the interest in figs like Cantina Han or POTJ Ben this year (the most repacked SW figs of all time?) and like Jesse says, if they keep doing it, no one will care.  

It would be a waste of resources to do these once in a limited time frame and never again.  Especially if they go back to figs like the Sandtrooper, Han/Luke Stormtrooper, Bespin Han, etc. and have these base parts lying around.

I'll buy one of the Stormtroopers, and wait for the repack next year.  (crosses fingers)

I totally agree.  More VOTC style figs (maybe not for $10) and VOTC prequel figs.  The prequel ones especially.  Now for my list:


Darth Maul
Obi Wan
Qui Gon
Orange Handmaiden Padme

Obi Wan
Count Dooku

And more VOTC:

Han Stormtrooper
Jawas   :)

Hoth Luke
Hoth Han
Hoth Leia

Slave Leia
Scout Trooper
Han Trench Coat

It's great for the people who don't have these, especially the guard, but it's another pass for me.   :(
