    12" Jumbo Vintage Kenner Line General Discussion

    Just thought I would drop this on here for more overall topics rather than just specific figures.

    Does anyone that's getting into this line feel a little "odd" getting Fett or the Stormtrooper as their first figure? Personally, it just feels like it should have been Luke to start it all off.

    The only thing I feel odd about is the price. I mean for what we get it sure isn't worth it. They look great, but the value isn't there. As long as the non exclusives are priced as a standard Mini Bust $50-60 I will bite.

    As for not getting Luke first it doesn't seem weird to me. I would had loved to get R2 and 3PO first.
    I believe the OT is all that is SW. Nothing else can ever be.

    I totally forgot about R2 and 3P0! Have we seen prototypes of them yet in this scale?

    Also, has there been any talk yet about when/how this line will be sold? They're not going to make ALL the figures exclusives... are they?

    The order I would have liked to have seen would be:

    Luke
    R2
    Leia
    Chewbacca
    Vader
    Han
    C-3PO
    Stormtrooper
    Obi-Wan
    Death Squad Commander
    Sand People
    Jawa

    It's just more of an order of vintage release.

    Because to most people, "Boba Fett" is the coolest, rarest, most awesomist character in Star Wars. It's the same for "Snake Eyes" or "Storm Shadow" from G.I. Joe, everybody loves them because everybody else does. I agree, Luke should have been first for nostalgic reasons but as you can see, Fett blew away the Stormtrooper right out of the gate. It's kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy (or people are sheep), when everybody says Fett is the coolest, most people will fall in line and agree...

    Hope I didn't hurt anyones feelings with this post...

    No feelings hurt...lol. Just don't question my reasons for buying these again!



    I see your point on them wanting to start it off with a bang by going after the characters that would get the most attention. Hopefully, now that they've got that out of the way, they can tackle the characters in a more natural release order.

    If you go back, GG has started off nearly all their lines with Boba. If not all. I think those Customz or whatever were the only line without the Fett.

    Fett was the first in the Mini Bust line?

    Fett wasn't first, well maybe an argument could be made for Jango, bit the Armless Wonders were the first wave of Mini-Busts in 2002. Boba Fett didn't come out until 2003.
