I'd be suprised if this WASN'T a rehash, but even so, I probably still won't buy it.

I would bet my own grandmother that this is a rehash! May have some slight paint changes but thats about all I can see being different.

I'm guessing rehash with minor paint differences as well.

This is one figure I don't mind Hasbo re-releasing at all. If he comes with a mustafr base that would be pretty sweet.

I will by it. I need one fore the arena balcony and one fore the new ROTS seperatists.

oh this will be a straight repack for sure, but that's not a bad thing since the original poggle figure is GREAT!
Looking foreward to Poggle on his own card.

About the only difference they may include on this one is a lightsaber slash mark like the repacked Passel Argente and Caat Miin (sp?).

I've got no objection to this one being a re-pack; the original figure was quite nice (and a straight re-pack would let me save some money.)

The other list I saw is a little hazy on the details for this one. He could be a new scuplt, but more likely, a repaint.

BlackRook
10-22-2005, 01:20 PM
Definitely a repaint. The old one's only problems were a slightly awkward pose and some really crappy paint. The pose isn't bad enough, and he's not popular enough to really warrant making a new mold to please the fans (though being that Poggle is my hero, I'd jump at a new one). So, just some better paint.

He'll probably only come with his cane and a generic stand with his name on it, like the ROTJ figures, unless they abandon that idea by the time he comes along. It'd be cool if he also came with the mini-Death Star hologram, but since he can't actually hold it, I doubt that.

What would be really nice is another Geonosian computer console to fit with the one that came with Wat Tambor.

Hes got one of the coolest names in all of the prequels. Hes also one of the coolest looking aliens to come out of the CGI world of AOTC. Thankfully, Hasbro also did a great job on the sculpt the first time around, because this bad boy is nothing more than a repack.

As expected. cool choice though.

Glad I held off on his Screen Scene set, since he was the only figure I wanted from it, and I prefer this repaint.

I don't think the paint job is as different as you are all hoping. It just looks like the lighting is different in the two pics. Other than that, the colors look about the same.

This would have been better served with a lightsaber wound like with Cait Miin and Passel Argente.

It would have been a nice excuse to repackage some more of the Saga Sets and it would have been acceptable collector-wise.

Rune_Haako
11-08-2005, 06:16 PM
I think I'll buy one to make a ROTS version sliced in half, including his beard.

Oooohh! OK Yeah that would've been cooler but they would've had to make him split into pieces in order to make it movie accurate right?

I already have the Saga version of this, so I'll have to wait to see the difference to see if I will pick him up. Maybe I will get him if he looks cool carded.

mrmforceX
11-08-2005, 08:45 PM
Now if Hasbro HAS to select figures to repack, then this is a GREAT example of a PERFECT choice.
The figure was great the first time around, and makes a good addition to the single carded line.

Ya know if he looks good carded and if I come across him, and Ive got the extra cash, then probably. Its gotta look like the promo pix tho, with that paint app. The other pix of him (really really green) looks like s**tty.

Fantastic, looks better then the 1st saga version froma couple years back. I'll buy 2 one to open and one carded. No extra pack ins but oh well no big deal at all.

I have the Screen Scene version but its been repainted and looks very nice.

I did want a Poggle for the ROTS shelf so he is a must have for me.

I like him. He looks cool carded and I don't have any Geonosians.

compared to the card pic, he looks too green

GNT
01-10-2006, 02:50 AM
True he looks to green but Hasroo were trying their best when making it http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif Even though the paint isn't accurate it's still a mighty fine figure!

Darth_Anton
01-10-2006, 02:56 AM
Not a bad figure to re-pack. I'll take one, but not my usual two.

Neal
01-10-2006, 02:58 AM
I'll most likely pass on Poggle. The paint job is going to have to be much, much better for me to pick him up again.

I got mine from the cinema scene. It might be nice to have a single carded one but I probably won't get this either.

I'm definitely getting it, I think he looks fantastic. Also, as a collector of card inserts, I think his card art is very well done.

I might get one, only if someday he's the only one on the pegs.

Hopefully Hasbro will give him the Sun Fac treatment someday...

Poggle the Lesser has been added to the Photo Archives:

Cool character, visually. If you missed him the first time, he's worth picking up. Crappy new paint job though.

I didn't go crazy recreating scenes for this guy, since I'd already shot similar scenes in past updates (Although I now cringe at the older photos. I've gotten better since those were shot http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif).

My wife and I love this figure. I'm not sure why they gave his face so much green in the paint apps but the sculpt is great and it looks fantastic carded.

I would guess that both Poggle and Sun Faq are hits with the kiddos as well.

Not around here they're not. I wouldn't call anything from this wave a pegwarmer yet, but if there are any, it's these two figures.

That doesn't mean they aren't hits with kids. Its just that we're the ones with the disposable incomes. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Very true ... but in my opinion, for something to be a hit with the kids, the kids would have to have them to determine that they like them. If the figures aren't selling as well as the rest of the wave, then I assume that kids are buying the other figures. Poggle and Sun are aimed more towards collectors anyway.

02-28-2006, 02:18 PM
Sun Fac was near the top of my list for this wave, as well a Poggle. Not getting the Jango, Yoda, or 3P0. My little brother made me buy him the 3P0.

Poggle needs a new figure, his SAGA figure, quite frankly, sucks. Articulation is back, paint job (particularly on his skin) sucks in comparison with some of the other Geonosians. He deserves better.

Agreed. Sun Fac was quite a great figure. Poggle was good, but suffered from problems that were corrected on Hasbro's next Geonosian figure. Hopefully the next one with be a straight up geonosian warrior army builder, SA, with gun massiff, staff, and pilot mask.

KillerVole

I liked Poggle, but I would welcome a new sculpt. I do believe that we need a generic geonosian first, though.
