The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: 2008 Clone Wars Preview Figure?
« on: February 13, 2008, 04:16 AM »
I guess it all depends on how the figure comes.

If the figure comes in a smaller white mailer box only slightly bigger than the figure and the figure is in a clear baggie, then yeah, I think $6.99 is a bit much.

If the figure comes like the George Lucas Stormtrooper figure in a larger box and all carded up, then I'm okay with that. I'm sure we'll see how Captain Rex will be shipped at Toy Fair.

I'll still probably get at least three since (a) I have a mountain of the UPCs since I bought double TAC for the coins, I could sacrifice 60 bubble inserts and still have a full set - PLUS I have all of the inserts from the army builders and (b) two of the three GL figures I got came in less than mint condition so 3 gives me better odds.

Anyone else think it leaves Hasbro wide open to release them with non-animated heads at a point?

Totally!  ::)

30th Anniversary Collection / Target TFU Wookiee Battle Pack

Ok - so with all of the silliness we've see with Inferno Troopers and the blue Stormtrooper Commander, from the preview shot, why aren't the Stormtroopers featuring jungle cammo armor?

I wonder if the shot is just a mock-up - there doesn't appear to be any difference between the Wookie Warrior and the preview version we got for ROTS. I would hope that they use the repack as an opportunity to paint the figure a different color of fur.

Hey Daigo and Robo - if you guys want a third to join, I'll be happy to pay a 1/3 and take the extra Mandalore. LMK

Clone Trooper : Training Fatigues (with EU stand ??? )

How is that figure EU? I guess the training armor part, but perhaps someone needs to show Hasbro the scene where an entire legion of them sitting in a canteen on Kamino eatting cream of wheat.

Hmm, now that hasbro has made a jointed two/three legged walker, we can hope they'd go back and do this for the AT-ST as well.

As cool as that would be, I wouldn't count on it. I think Hasbro would dust off the molds for the Cloud Car and Dagobah Playsets and release both of those in the $20 vehicle assortment before they'd spend any money upgrading the AT-ST. I'm afraid that the AT-AT and AT-ST are all we're ever going to get - good thing the AT-AT and AT-ST are examples of some of the best work done by Kenner in the 1980s.

Picked up most of the latest 2" Titanium vehicles (didn't get the AT- OT or classic Galactica).

I also got 3 Hawkbat clones to finish off 2007 finally.

Last item for today was the Ultra Titanium Clone Wars Gunship for $5. Score!

They were up for order on a little while back.

Last time I checked Grievous' starfighter was still in stock.

Mine was waiting for me when I got home. Nice set. Not necessarily sure that we needed two bodies in there, but oh well...

The coupons will be in figures like Wave 5 of the Saga Legends collection. I'm assuming all of the 2008 Saga Legends figures will ship with the offer.

If you check out this image:

You'll see that the sticker reads:

SPECIAL OFFER! Get a sneak peak at the Clone Wars action coming in Fall '08, with an exclusive Captain Rex figure -- available ONLY in this special offer! Visit or see inside for more details. Valid in U.S. and Canada only. Expires 12/31/08.

It is this wording that changed this figure from being a "mail away offer" to a "sneak preview" figure.

Ok - so since I'm in the "worried that the line might be animated camp", I have to say, the huge number of repeat characters in that list definitely has me concerned.

Hey - I've always wondered this - Chewie does get shot on the skiff - he falls over on top of Han. Han even says "Chewie are you alright?"

Since wrapping just his legs isn't exactly going to keep the sand out of his fur, are they to keep the sand out of his wounds? Heck - from the picture, it looks like it might even only be his left leg that is wrapped up.

Always wondered why GL didn't put this scene back into the SE of ROTJ.

I'm still trying to remain optimistic. I'm hoping that the line will turn out to be realistic in style and that the picture on the package is only there so you can see correlation between the figure and the animated character.

If they do turn out to be animated in style, I will be quite disappointed over that decision.

I'm hoping that we'll see the figure at Toy Fair - it's our best chance to see our first glimpse of a Clone Wars cartoon-based figure.

Another possibility that occured to me is that for both AOTC and ROTS, Hasbro released "sneak preview" waves. So if we're getting wave 1 now, wave 2 in March, SL '08 in April - I'm willing to bet we might see a CW sneak preview wave in June and then the onslaught of CW product in August to coincide with the theatrical release of the first three episodes of the series.

When you look at it that way, that's plenty of new waves plus the other lines like comic 2 packs, battle packs (a big seller with kids), and exclusives - there is plenty of product coming between now and the fall IMHO.
