The Vintage Collection / Re: Celebration V

The only thing that kind of surprised me was that they did not show the entire ROTJ wave carded.  They only showed the Endor Soldier.  I guess I know what the cards will look like from 1983 but you know what I mean. 

 It's a nice set I suppose but these are going to rot on the shelves I think.  They should have broken them up and sold them individually in my opinion.  The only set that really kind of pulls me is the Bespin set because of the Wing Guard, but not enough to drop the amount of money they want for all 9 figures. 

Anyway, it's a pass for me but at the same kind of a nice vintage nod that we were not expecting.

Yeah, I wish they would have added the astromech droid again.  Oh well.

I'm actually pretty happy to see these.  Especially Grizz and they grey Y-Wing Pilot. I can always add a TIE Fighter pilot to the mix.  The astromech droids are always welcome. 

I am sure we'll see Battle over the Death Star and Battle on Hoth sets at some point  ;)

I really like the Anakin and Padme peasant figures. I may pick up Mace and Kit Fisto.  I really want Jango Fett from this wave.  I don't know why they even bothered with the Royal Guard but he looks good.  I am just plain tired of the Super Battle Droid but it seems to sell well.  I kind of thought maybe they would add a clonetrooper instead of the Royal Guard but whatever.

 I think it will be mostly what they showed at the SDCC with a few more things like the AOTC wave like Scott said.  I am hoping for some sneak peak stuff from the ANH wave but I don't expect it.  I suppose they may show carded figures from the ROTJ wave? 

I am just not getting my hopes up as far as new reveals go.  It will primarily just be showcasing stuff that is out now or in the very new future we have already heard about or seen. 

But hey if they want to announce they are making a Sail Barge feel free to do so Hasbro  ;D

The hut is beautiful.  I don't really know how to afford it but I ordered it anyway.

Well...the nitpickers would be mad if it did not say Darth Vader.  Let's face it...he is Darth Vader at that point during the film.

Anyone else think the panel was a big waste of time?

Just in case anyone is curious, I handed in the wishlist during the panel.

No, because again everyone would be upset that there would be no Star Wars panel of some sort.   I could just imagine the %#&@storm that would create.   Plus, we all knew they would hold back stuff for CV.  They did at least  show us some new stuff like the Arena sets, Hoth sets, ROTJ wave, Jabba The Hutt (though it was just leaked a few weeks backs), a few CW items like the Mandalorian 4 pack.  There are probably a few I forgot. 

The biggest thing this year was going to be the vintage figs and the AT-AT.  There was really nothing to top it...maybe Jabba?  But again the Hutt got revealed...they ALMOST made it to the show with that under wraps.  I can't really blame them for that though.

I don't know what else people were really expecting to see this year at SDCC???  Maybe the Slave I and the AOTC waves?  A Sailbarge maybe?  We'll get the rest at CV in a few days/weeks. 

IT will all be good.  Otherwise more would have been shown this weekend.

Yeah, they are holding things back for CV.  They did warn us that stuff would be scaled back.  So, I am not expecting oddles and gobs of new stuff at CV though.  That's why Hasbro does not like leaks because everyone whines when it's all been revealed.

I will pick and choose but the Shaak Ti set it really nice.  I think they could have gave us something else besides the R2 and 3PO pack.  I'm just sick of seeing C-3PO and the battle droid head swap thing yet again.  Although that is their "big" scene in the arena so it makes sense in that regard.  I was kind of hoping for Bariss Offee or even that white female Jedi (can't remember her name though so I must not want it that bad).  The Rodian is a surprise but I can't say that really anyone was actually wanting it?  They are decent sets but I'll probably track down other stuff with more enthusiasm.

Wow! That brings a whole new perspective to the vintage Leia I had never thought of before  :o

I thought you guys were of the opinion that boobs were like pizza - even the bad ones are still good  ;)

Nope, it only applies to pizza.

I may get it.  I love the TIE bombers for some odd reason.  Plus it's from the ESB with the 30th anniversary and all it's a good time to release it. 

I'm ok with the pricepoint but will most likely wait it out to buy the entire wave at either Target or Wal-Mart.  I won't be able to resist a few of them for higher price like Bespin Luke and Hoth Leia if I see them first at TRU.  I will wait on Cloud Car Pilot and AT-AT Commander and Dak Ralter though.
