Please discuss what you'd like to see at Comic Con and or info posted about the con here. While we may have this as a general thread for Comic Con info feel free to start individual threads on new items that we see provided we have no existing threads covering the item already (so do a search/use index thread).



From, http://www.starwars.com/community/event/con/news20050623.html

Hasbro's Star Wars Marketing and Design teams will share their exciting plans for this fall, when the toy line will continue to celebrate the entire Star Wars saga in a big way. The team will also have a sneak peek at what's coming in 2006. Start thinking of questions for the toymakers now, as a question & answer session will follow the presentation.

I'm pretty sure they know that. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif What I'm curious are the dynamics in their decision. Poor sales? Production cost? Desire to acquire the non-collector's market? Bandwagon on the micro-series hype....sorry, look at 3" McFarlane and LOTR.

Zodach
07-09-2005, 10:28 PM
Someone who is going and may have access to the Q&A session with Hasbro or could at least talk to someone at the Hasbro booth, please bring this up:

Why did it take so long to get a running paint-scheme change for the Clones? The Shocktrooper and Green Commander will likely be difficult to find since they are in the later waves of ROTS figures. Hopefully some of these will be released along with figures 57-69, which we don't know about yet.

Also, where are the suppossed army building cases that went to Target? I have never seen any evidence in my area that Target received cases of 3 of each #41-44. Just curious.

magillafett
07-09-2005, 10:30 PM
But first ask if the repaints are real. That's the question that is most important to me.

Valid question. The Green Commander is more suspect to me than anything, but the lines on that Shocktrooper's helmet seem to small, straight, and streamlined to be a custom. Could be though if someone had a really steady hand.

07-10-2005, 09:03 AM
Okay we seem to be asking the same questions here!! I say we should do what we did in the GI JOE thread in Wuhers, and just keep adding questions to anongoing list!!! Not quoting mind you but copy and pasting the ongoing list of questions, and making sure the look of it remains the same!!!!

Here are a few I can think of!!!

1 - What are the new 12 figures?
2 - Are the new Toys R US and Target Clone Multipacks articulated or static??
3 - Are the Shocktrooper and Green Commander legit variations?
4 - Why are the store shelves so bare?

Lady_Jaye
07-10-2005, 09:06 AM
And then you would reply with some comments that you want to make, and then add your question or questions to the list in the same format!!!


1 - What are the new 12 figures?
2 - Are the new Toys R US and Target Clone Multipacks articulated or static??
3 - Are the Shocktrooper and Green Commander legit variations?
4 - Why are the store shelves so bare?
5 - Why are Clones not distributed in greater numbers?
6 - Will we continue to get ROTS characters and Clones in the new unified line?

And there you go!!!! Keep adding questions you think are valid!!! If you want, to make the new questions stand out, you can keep them from being in bold if you want!!! Then the next person to add a question, just puts the last new questions in bold print and keeps theres regular print!!

Masterfett
07-10-2005, 12:18 PM
What mystifies me is, why the Green Clone Commander repaint, he's not in the movie? They could have done Commander Bly the right way!

Char_Aznable
07-10-2005, 12:26 PM
I think you should make #4 a priority. It won't matter what the next twelve will be if we're still going to be seeing Nemoidian Warriors and #35 Palpatines.

jedisrus
07-10-2005, 12:38 PM
Could you also ask about the Hasbro toy shop?. In particular, why are they having such a hard time keeping it stocked and why they don't have the newer waves available that have been seen at retail.

Thanks.

That's a great idea. I know it has been mentioned before, but with the make you own lightsaber the notion isn't so foreign now.

It may also make hasbro make a general head size post where applicable.

Don't forget to copy and paste the previous questions. Oh and MasterFett had a good suggestion, make your question stand out by posting it in a different color!!!!

knightone
07-10-2005, 09:58 PM
I think the better way to phrase the question abvout the TRU 3 paxcks is to ask if they are repaints of the deluxe 3 pack. Asking if theya re static can be a bit misleading as they do have some (albeit extreeeeemely limited) articulation.

ASking if theya re static, they could just answer "yes, they will have some articualtion", and then the question would still stand as is about whether or not it will just be a repaint of the deluxe set.

Trooper31
07-11-2005, 03:52 AM
That's a good point.

I really hope Hasbro answers the question about the clone distribution. Also a good question would be about the next 12 case breakdown. Are we looking at a case of 1x each of the 12 or are we looking at three waves of four figures (each 3x per case)? Or is it possible we will see cases with 1-2 of each new mixed with the first 56?

Target Lava Reflections Obi Wan (1) and Anakin (2)

Imperial Throne Room Battle pack with Saga Emperor, 2 Saga Guards, a storm trooper (commtech) and Kren Blista Dignitary.

Also looks like new cups (Leia, Vader, Stormtrooper)

Just a few questions

Why is there still no action figure of the most important Clone Commander of Episode 3?

Why is Commander Gree holding a Stormtrooper Blaster in his hands?

Why does the 501st trooper wear dirty boots? From all the mud in the jedi temple?

Why does the 501st Trooper have an antenna instead of two weapons?

Why is the "Arc Trooper" lying on his face, most of the time?

Why is Commander Bly painted in light yellow while the felucia clone from the evolution 3Pack is in Dark Yellow?

Why is Commander Bly missing his heavy blaster?

Why are most of this figures just repaints (including Gree)?

What are holografic figures of Secura and Plo Koon good for?

What are these guys smoking over at hasbro?

This is ridiculous. Anyone who defends Hasbro for this crap is too. All remolds of the 'secret twelve'?!? How can they pull this junk? I know, I know because we will buy them. Here is the real question. Why are the Shock trooper and the Black Pilot not in the big twelve? They are rehashes too.

Suck hasbro does. Plus my Joes aren't here yet.

I'm too scared to go to the 85 different threads that are running amok in this forum so here is my two cents. While not pleased with most of the 12, Hasbro gave us a heck of a lot of figures for a movie year. I clearly agree they underestimated the impact of the clones popularity when they were making the molds. It is just easier for them to repaint something. Hopefully they will clear whatever stock they need to and get some new molds (Mygeeto, Cody, Fox) for next year's unified line. But then again, it's Hasbro. If I had a dime for everytime I thought I had them figured out....

I actually like most the 12 even if they are repaints. I knew they would do that with the clones. They did make a ton of new figures for ROTS. However, didn't that also make some decent money selling those?

I hope they are going to make some all new figures for the unified line. If it's going to be all repaints that won't go over well with the collectors that have been around quite a long time.

I guess we will find out more hopefully before the Comic Con ends. Which is likely.

Sideshow gets the 12 inch figures. Awesome news!

Since I was responding to the other 20 threads, thought I would sum up what I think of the new stuff here. I do not mind the rehash of the clones because ReHasbro used the right clones in doing it, specifically the Clone Commander and SA Clone #41. IF they have to do a rehash which I think is the only way that Hasbro is going to put out some of the clones, then pick the right clone figures to rehash, and they did. So, IF I can find the clones, I will be buying the single packs.
In the multipacks I have only an interest maybe in the Sith evolutions one, maybe the sandtrooper one also. Other then that, I can pass. Is that orange paint on Obi Wan and Anakin or is it the remmenants of baby food squash that got plastered on the figure by a toddler?
Overall, Hasbro will make bucks on this and I am sure that many will search high and low to get one or multiples of these figures. I have stated this and will restate it again now. This is the exact reason I moved from being a completist collector to a non-completist collector who only buys what I want/like and that's it. This way I do save a lot of $ when ReHasbro does something like this.

I know I posted this on another thread but since this seems to be the comic con thread I'm going to repost it here.


I feel really let down by hasbro's choice for the 12 figures. Wookie Warriors are warming pegs everywhere so what do they do they make 2 more of them. The nemodian may be okay since it doesn't have that huge gun. Grievous'guard was a mediocre at best and they repaint it (another amazing Idea along with the wookies). I don't care much about the holgraphic figures just because I've never really liked them. Plus the Palps is the piece of [censored] I payed $5 for last time. Why don't they just reissue the tpm sidious. I like the fact that were getting clones but Bly is essentially the clone commander from the clone evolution set but with a little more paint. I was hoping that we would get all the clone commanders like, Fox, Cody, Neyo, Thaire, the works. Hell they could even repaint a scout trooper so we could have a gree soldier. I can probably get the seperatists cheaper in the war room pack that has been poping up around here lately. I was hoping we would get alot of clones and evolution set quality main character figures but once again hasbro will dissapoint me. It makes me feel happy that there are toy companies that care about the fans of the product they produce (SOTA, Toybiz, NECA, Palisades). Alright my rant is finished.

Hasbro sucks, they kept saying 12 new figures and then they give us maybe 2 new figures and 10 repaints? I hope they added articulation to those screen scene rehashes.

And those wookie warriors...damn what crap. These look like customs by a ten year old. And the He-Man Shoulder straps look even worse with the skirt added on the wookie warrior. What a let down. Unfortuneately I'll still pry buy all these, which I guess is why Hasbro cares less about what collectors think.

Sideshows announcement has me excited.

I understand what you are saying. Cody had the most screen time of all the clones and he should have been among the new figures. Who knows, maybe Habro will have some surprises for us tomorrow. It's a slim chance, but Hasbro (as mentioned previously) usually has some stuff to show off after the Q&A that wa not shown in earlier at the con. Maybe Cody will be a surprise.

As far as the new R4, she was in EIII as well, not just in AOTC. She was the astromech in Obi-Wan's red starfighter. R4-G9 was the astromech in his blue one.

I don't think we should all be making as many gripes as we are until after the entire con is over. Hasbro might have some surprises for us, they may be more receptive of questions and comments than they usually are, many good things could happen still. There's just way too much negativity and impatience surrounding all of this when it is still early. The con has been going for less than a day and everyone is already jumping around and screaming bloody murder over every little thing.

You people are just plain greedy. They have already given us (or will have given us once they all hit) 56 new sculpts. There will be 8 to 12 new sculpts near the end of the year when the OTC-style Universe figures start.

A buddy of mine called me this afternoon from Comic Con. He made the trip from LA while he was there on business and only had time to pick up a few Holo Leia's. He said there were a ton of people there, but he was in and out with the Holo Leia's and a few other exclusives in 2 hours. Not bad. Sounds like the Fan Club store was alot more efficient than at C3. Then again, I'm sure there were more people at C3 than CC.

I've just seen Gree, expected to be released in the last wave of ROTS figs. Hold on to your Customs because, chances are, you've done a better job than Hasblo. They really chinced out on this one He is basicly a #41 Repaint. They even Painted on his harness. Is Hasblo bound and determined to feed us Crap like these repaints. I for one think Hasblo should earn our money, put a little more effort into these Figs. and I'd be happy to by an Army of them. Here's a link judge for yourselves
Hasblo's Gree (http://www.galactichunter.com/absoluteig/gallery.asp?action=viewimage&categoryid=3641&text=&imageid=16218&box=&shownew=)

The only good thing I can find is the new Mustafar base, but that's hardly worth it. It's nice we're getting more clones but why the Wookiees?
