Star Wars Fighter Pods / Micro Force

<< < (5/6) > >>

The Fighter Pods sold out within days at my 5 Below.  FYI, the same 4 packs were goin for $9.99 at TRU as a few other places.  I'm split on these.   don't collect them, but we'e bough some for hte kids and they seem to love them.

I actually like the, and the fact that thy tae up so litte space is appealing.  I just can't see startig a new "blind packed" collection.  Always seems (in any "bind pack" collectable) to end up  beng hundreds of commons that aren't worth crap, and just one or two really expensive peices everyone istrin to scramble to get and really HTF.

Adam at GH reports finding a new Fighter Pods tin at Target. Doesn't look like it includes any (advertised) exclusives so it might be a pass unless collectors want the tin.

Dammit, I'd avoided getting into these until I came across an X-Wing vs TIE multipack on clearance at TRU last week and couldn't resist.  Now I just spent the last few hours on eBay tracking down a bunch more!  I'm sticking with OT and CW ones.

Looks like Hasbro is resurrecting another idea from the past - Star Wars Micro Force (aka Fighter Pods without the Pods!).  The line will start with $3 blind bags with two mini-figures in them.  There will no doubt be multi-figure "collector" or "gift" boxes with exclusive figures eventually, I'm sure.

Wave 1:

Wave 2:

Hasbro hinted at SW Celebration that they were planning on doing something new for the "blind bag" impulse buy portion of the toy aisles/checkout lanes, but I can't say I was expecting Fighter Pods 2.0.

I really don't get this move by Hasbro.  Didn't these things collect a lot of dust and not sell too well last time around?
