Power of the Force 2 / Re: Wedge Gunner Station Prototype?
« on: August 8, 2005, 11:08 AM »

Kenner planned still two further Gunner stations, one of it was a x-Wing Fighter cockpit with a Wedge Antilles figure.  This occupied a Kenner/Wal*Mart product list for the year 1998.  The list is very precise in the data and can being found therefore than authentically. (huh?) There is not available pictures or further information to this product.

About the TIE Gunner station...

For the Gunner station Subline originally five different products were intended, but only three Gunner station appeared.  The TIE Fighter w/TIE pilot Gunner station was not produced, although she was specified in a product list for the year 1998.  It would be very easy to manufacture, because but the Darth Vader's TIE Fighter Gunner station could be easily modified.  There is no pictures or other information to this product.

I'm wondering now in retrospect if the Wedge Gunner station got far enough into development that the figure wound up being put in the 1999 Rebel Pilots Cinema Scene....


I had neve heard about these. Sounds like they would have been cool back then.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: EE Exclusive Astromech 5-Packs

Exactly! Sculpting is the most expensive part of the process. Painting costs as much as it does to pay an artist to paint up the figure, even if they spend one whole week per astromech, it's still dirt cheep.

The prices will always be based on the MSRP of an individual figure, no matter how cheep or expensive it is to make. And if it's an excusive, forget it, every retailer knows they can charge more just for the heck of it.

What kind of things do they due when they're stuck in space for another day? I know they fill nearly every second of their schedules with something to do, but what do they do durring plan B-type situations like this?

  I can get over the helmet issue. since he is EPIV Vader, I am just going to give it a touch of Super Glue.

Thats the best part about the figure.  ;)

He just grabbed one set, which is all I want. But yeah, cool. If you're to nab some openers for people, I'll sure take you up on the swapping.

Nope, OTC had the battery pack. Or atleast, I'm pretty sure it did.


I just inspected the one I haven't opened yet. The OTC one does not have the battery compartment. ;)

The red shock looks awesome..right down to the grey painted boot soles.  They look awesome in formation(my son has an army(he's 11))

The black pilots also look really good in the ROTS ARC170. I dunno- I think the black ones look far superior to the white/grey pilots

Amazing what a little paint will do. Huh?

"... i still wish they get rid of the ancient battery pack and sculpt us a freaking engine...."

They did, the TIE tha KB had last year has the proper little hole for the engine.  The batterypack is gone.  This ne sculpt will have the updated engine area.

Same thing for the OTC release. This new cockpit should be the new standard.

Typically where has everybody found the Evolutions packs? 

I've seen them at Target and Walmart and have had friends that picked them up at TRU and K-Mart. Target and Walmart are the cheepest.
