View Full Version : Saga Collection Electronic Lightsabers

These are bound to happen, so what do you expect to see? Most likely, we'll get reissues of past electronic lightsabers, like Luke, and Vader's, maybe some of these newer ROTS ones.

As far as packaging, what would you like to see? I personally love the new box design for the ROTS line, as far as shape, size, graphics and colored windows, but I just hated most of the lightsaber packaging in the past, including the OTC, AOTC and EI lightsaber boxes, just because they are so basic and plain.
I hope with the Saga Collection lightsabers, well get the exact same packaging design, shape and size of the ROTS lightsabers, combined with the silver graphics of the OTC.

Compare a ROTS Vader saber to an AOTC Obi Wan saber in it's packaging. Which one is more eyecatching?



(BTW, I open and play with my lightsabers, but kept the ROTS boxes, because they looked so cool!)

No doubt if Hasbro makes more electronic lightsabers for the saga collection we'll see reissues - Vader, Obi (ROTS),Yoda, Luke and Mace. I just hope they can get around to a Palpatine version at some point.

Hasbro said at Comic Con the only new lightsaber they are considering making is the Sidious. Other than that, unless a future project like a TV series or movie features a lightsaber prominently/regularly, the chances for any other new saber to be made is slim. The new CW animated series wouldn't warrant any new sabers as the original series didn't, they just released existing sabers that year. We can't know what the future will hold, but the very near future only holds promise for one new saber.

Yup, Hasbro basically said there is no corrected Mace happening...I hope they re-release Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan TPM and Darth Maul's....

He wasnt that interesting to earn 4 lightsabers.
Just grab 2 blues and 2 greens and bam..you're Grievous.
And why would you want a voice-changer that added a cough to every other word?

I agree, His lightsabers are generic enough that Hasbro wouldn't warrant making one distinctive Grevious saber let alone four. A Mask/Voice Changer might be cool but solely IMO for the Mask aspect...

By God, my packaging (http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/The_Saga_Collection_Spotlight_Battle_Of_Hoth_96099 .asp) prediction was right! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

Good call!!!!!!!!!

It was very predictable though, Hasbro re-issues everytime a new line comes out, lightsabers are an amazing big seller so best to keep them on the shelves.

Of course it was inevitable they would be reissued, I just meant that I was supprised the new packaging design was exactly as I had hoped.
