Reported by Curto on the main page:

Hasbro 2006 Plans: The Saga Collection (http://www.rebelscum.com/article.asp?i=93813)

As officially announced yesterday, the Saga Collection will focus on characters from across the entire Star Wars saga, and include all 6 films in the series.

Each wave of action figures will be focused on a classic battle, and include the iconic characters. Look for 56 figures, split into 8 waves, and as an added bonus, each figure will inlcude a bonus holographic mini figure. The waves are as follows:

Battle of Carkoon from Episode VI will include 6 figures
Battle of Hoth from Episode V will include 8 figures
Battle of Coruscant from Episode III will include 6 figures
Battle of Geonosis from Episode II will include 7 figures
Battle of Tatooine from Episode IV will include 7 figures
Battle of Endor from Episode VI will include 8 figures
Battle of Naboo from Episode I will include 8 figures
Battle of Death Star from Episode IV will include 6 figures

Which figures will make up each wave? Not much is known just yet, but we already reported that Battle of Carkoon will include Leia as Boushh, Han Solo in Carbonite, Bib Fortuna, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, and Barada with a mix of all-new sculpts, repacks, and repaints. Plus, we've seen from the Hasbro presentation yesterday that Battle of Tatooine will include a repainted Sandtrooper based on the sample shown.

So what does everyone want to see made from these waves?

I'm guessing the Battle of Tatooine will include a new Han, Chewie, Sandtrooper, etc. Because the only "battle" that occured on that planet in EPIV was the short gunfight in Docking Bay 94.

Considering we just got a decently articulated Ki-Adi for ROTS, it might ve kinda crappy to get him in the Geonosis wave over someone who either has not had a figure made at all or hasn't had an articluated one (as is the case with Barriss Offee and those other AOTC figurines that tried to pass for action figures).

We got a Saga Ki-Adi Mundi from the Saga line he was just a retool of the EP1 version though:

......in all seriousness, I would like a new Jar-Jar w/ soft goods and articulation for the Battle of Naboo. I know a lot of people are turned off by him, but he's a character I've warmed up to and deserves a better treatment....plus, him and Anakin probably played the biggest part in the Battle of Naboo, on land and space respectively...

And for all you guys putting these obscure characters on your wish list, the release DID say that they will be of "iconic" characters involved in the battle, so I'm thinking only major characters will be made for this line...

Commander Cody-with removeable helmet and holographic projector w/ Emperor Palpatine showing

Super-Articulated Mace Windu-with soft goods robe and tunika, alternated headsculpt, removeable right arm

Padmé (blue dress/ nightgown)-maybe have the lower part of the dress be cloth, like on the CTC Leia and add one of the water fountains as accessory/ base

Cin Drallig-add a holo security projector with a miniature version of the two vs. one duel

Don't be surprised if the associations to the battle or location are a little on the weak side. I'm sure Hasbro won't be too literal in that regards. At CIII Hasbro said that more Cantina figures are on the way and there was rampant specualtion about a Tonnika sister coming. I imagine those will fit right in with the Battle of Tatooine. So things like Cody being in the Battle of Coruscant or a bounty hunter showing up in the Battle of Hoth are quite probable. Heck they've got Leia Boushh listed in the Battle of Carkoon wave.

I imagine for each wave 2-3 of the figures will be repaints or re-releases. Although I am a little surprised by the number of figures for each wave. 8 figures for Hoth and Naboo seems like a lot while a couple more for Carkoon would have been ideal.

Marketing, baby, marketing. I really would not read too much into that iconic statement. A lot of times adjectives like that are added to make things say grander or more exciting rather than being specific. I'm sure it will be a mix of core and minor figures.

Hydralisk
07-17-2005, 03:10 PM
Some excellent ideas floating around. Thought I might as well toss in my list of wants.

Battle of Carkoon: Not really all that interested, really. I'll pick up the new Fortuna because, for some strange reason, I've always liked the character.

Battle of Hoth: Again, there would have to be something very interesting or very well done to garner any interest for me.

Battle of Coruscant: Boundless possibilities. My little wishlist for this wave:
SA Invisible Hand Grievous (taller sculpt, cape, electrostaff). The figure could be reused (with new arms of course) for the eventual and inevitable Utapaun Attack Grievous.
SA IG-101 (this droid is just begging for more articulation).
SA Mace Windu (robed, removable arm, no goofy "screaming in pain" head sculpt).
Padmé (any and all, though I'm partial to the blue nightgown).
Cin Drallig (More Jedi = good).

Battle of Geonosis: Some good options here, as well.
SA Mace Windu (in case that whole Battle of Coruscant thing doesn't work out).
SA Barriss Offee (ROTS style- good articulation and soft goods skirt).
Poggle The Lesser (New or rehash). Nobody doesn't love Poggle...right?
Nexu (retooled or resculpted with more articulation, lose the sound and battle damage, cram it on a standard card as best you can).
Sora Bulq/Weequay Jedi (neat background Jedi for many fans, great treat for comic-readers).
Droideka (sans action feature, with sheild).

Battle of Tatooine: Not interested, unless they give us some Cantina patrons, that is.

Battle of Endor: Only one I can think of that I would like to see.
Emperor Palpatine: (with cane, soft goods robe, and throne).

Battle of Naboo: With so little Episode I product anymore, its likely that I'll be all over this wave.
SA Battle Dress Sabé (with security blaster, royal pistols).
SA Battle Dress Rabé (with royal pistol). Switch out the head sculpts a few times and eventually we could get all the handmaidens and Padmé.
Holo Sidious/Neimoidian Walking Projector
SA Qui-Gon Jinn (lightsaber, robe, holoprojector)
SA Obi-Wan Kenobi (lightsaber, robe)

Battle of Death Star: No interest here either.

I think this new Saga line could work out, assuming that Hasbro keeps the rehashes to a minimum and gives us a decent mix of main and secondary/background characters.

Kad
07-17-2005, 03:37 PM
Remember, we are definetely getting repaints, repacks, rehashes, recycled figures in this series.


Battle of Hoth
Probably a new 2-1B. It was a rumor from the Saga line, anyhow.

Battle of Coruscant from Episode III
Clone Pilot re-pack (you KNOW it's coming)

Battle of Geonosis from Episode II
Barris Offee
Wat Tambor Repack
Geonosian Repack(of some sort, perhaps a Warrior repack or maybe even Poggle)

Battle of Tatooine from Episode IV
Some Cantina patrons. And, of course, Han Solo. Repack. Again. Because Hasbro loves him.

Battle of Endor from Episode VI will include 8 figures
C-3PO "Sun God" fig. Another rumored figure, let's get this already!
Scout Trooper repack

Battle of Naboo from Episode I will include 8 figures
Destroyer Droid
Gungan Warrior
Battle Droid
Neimoidians (Perhaps Nute Gunray, perhaps the rumored Daultay Dofine, perhaps Tey How)
Boss Nass (new sculpt)
Jar-Jar

Battle of Death Star from Episode IV will include 6 figures
Rebel pilots
TIE Pilot
Maybe Luke and Han in Stormtrooper armor. We haven't had those in a while.

I was wondering about exactly the same thing. I think the Ep.III figures are selling pretty good. I don't understand why only 1 Wave next year will include Ep.III Charakters. I think a Battle of Utapau Wave would be a cool idea. There are many cool troopers and characters on Utapau.

I80SKID
07-17-2005, 05:53 PM
If these were going to be repacks & repaints just with EPIII-type articulation at the elbow, wrist & knees, here would be my list:

Naboo- Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Padme, Darth Maul, B. Droid(security or yellow), Naboo Royal Guard(a must for me), Jar Jar, Gungan Warrior

Geonosis- Anakin, Obi-Wan, Mace, a white Clone Soilder(a must for me), B. Droid(red)

Corusant- Emperor(realistic), Red Guard(EPIII repack), Blue Clone

Tatooine- Sandtrooper (don't really care about the rest)

Death Star- Imperial Officer (gray suit, must have), Stormtrooper(both weapons please - with a smaller blaster handle so he could actually hold it!), S. trooper Han, S. trooper Luke, Leia, Vader

Hoth- Admiral Ozzel, Capt. Piett, Hoth Soilder(Saga), Snowtrooper(Saga), Han, Luke, Leia, AT-AT Driver(or Gen. Veers)

Endor- Death Star Trooper(A MUST HAVE), Scout Trooper, Imperial Officer (black suit), Teebo, Endor Luke & Leia(w/removable helmet & cloth poncho), Han

Maybe they will repack Coleman Trebor so he wont be so expensive on ebay.

4-LOM was another rumored figure. I'd love to see him sometime. He'd look great with the RotS protocol droid body.
