View Full Version : Myths about Holo Pack-ins / Kitbashing to dispell:

Restatings of my own previous and personally held assessments:

According to mousedroid.com, who showed the first figures carded, Mini Holo pack-ins will be packaged randomly.

It remains to be seen if every figure gets it's own Mini Holo piece. I can see Hasbro only making core characters and soldiers.

I stand corrected on the matter of kitbashes. There may be one or two figures from every wave that's had it.

Err... but isn't the Snowtrooper a kitbash? It's got the kama, upper body, and head of the Saga 'trooper, but the legs and arms aren't from that figure (haven't taken a close look at arms myself, but the legs are obviously something new or kitbashed)

Holo Pack-ins will be packaged randomly.

Every figure does not get it's own holo, especially with the Podracer 2-pk. I can see Hasbro only making core characters and soldiers.

There is no evidence shown that Hasbro is planning on any kitbashing. All seven known repacks are minor retoolings with accessories, or repaints.


If you're going to dispel myths, shouldn't you cite some sources...?

Everyone claims to have "reliable sources", I think a majority of it is bull s**t. If you really wanna know whats goin down, wait to actually see the figures or wait till Rebelscum or Sirsteves or GalacticHunter or whoever comes out with news and pics and the whole 9 yards.

BTW, does anyone know if these holos are replacing the figure stands we saw in Comic-Con pics (http://www.rebelscum.com/sdcc05/hasbro-qa/IMG_2402.JPG)?

I don't think so. I think they announced the holos at Comic-Con.

Good question. Maybe we're getting both.

As far as I know the figure stands are still included as well as the holo.

As for the holo figures being random, there is no sign of that right now. We have seen 2 carded figures and both come with holos of that character. Until we see more images we can't be sure if they are random or not.

Kit Bash seem possible, The Snowtrooper is the Saga Body but it has different legs maybe the POTF2 legs or new legs so I wouldn't be surprised to see some kit bashes out of the figures released in 2006.

So is there some kind of mysterious "deep throat" out there or is a lot of this just educated guesses?

At this point, Inigo is giving his opinion. He likes to use verbage that makes his opinions seem like fact. Be carfeul, Inigo ... you don't want another "Commander Fox" on your hands.

Well summbich, the Snowtrooper does have new limbs.

The Han and Boba cards do seem to have their respective Holos, but mousedroid.com did say they were packed randomly.
And I can't imagine the likes of EG-4, the Podracer Pilots (which would they pick?), Gragra, or Foul Moudama getting their own Holos.

No, Rayne, I really wouldn't want another "Commander Fox" fiasco.

Understand it was for furtherance of knowledge, and logistical enough at the time. Before anyone knew non-Commanders could have names, and every specially unique armor design was for a Commander.

I also believe that if my original post could be tracked down, I never said the Parjai Troops were Fox as fact, but as a possibility, but most all of us were eager to hope for it anyway.

I thought the holo figures were tiny, SW Miniature-esque things. Wouldn't it make sense for Hasbro just to...Holo-ize the SW Miniatures? They included an exclusive Miniature with the IG-88 Unleashed wave, so they're not beyond crossing the lines over.

Sounds reasonable. I wouldn't mind since the main character Miniatures are usually pretty rare and I never got into collecting them.

it doesnt seem all that unlikely that each individual figure would have a holo of itself. they already had a mold for it of sorts, all they had to do was scale it down again.

I'm sure they have a million miniature holo Sidious's left from Lott Dodd and AOTC Dooku, so we'll probably be seein' some of those.

According to someone's E-Bay description, the Holos are packed randomly. (http://cgi.ebay.com/STAR-WARS-SAGA-COLLECTION-2006-BOUSHH-LEIA-IN-HAND-LOT_W0QQitemZ6008115541QQcategoryZ2476QQrdZ1QQcmdZ ViewItem)

Sucks for completists/variation hunters if that is true! Glad I am not either http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

If they only have a low number like 12 holo's, than the chances of you getting every one, once all the waves come out, is good.

But man, if you want every variant Han with a differnt holo in each one, good luck and my the bank be with you.

Not only does it suck for completists but for anyone who is interested in these Holo figures. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

ok, so based on those ebay pics... i could't see a holo pack in. i saw the back of the barada card looked like it had something, but it looked like just the cardback itself. where is the holo packaged in the han carbo? that's the figure where the ebay description says it has one.

The holo pack-in is the little blue thing on the bottom right of the back of the card. They cannot be seen from the front because they are covered by the character picture.
I'd like to see what holos Hasbro has planned. I would hope for a higher number than 12, but can't see too many more characters getting the mini-holo treatment. I forsee a strong Holo trading market.

ok... i read the auction a little closer this time. thanks. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/icons/biggrin.gif

i'm still curious as to how he got this case. was the buyer from rebelscum? i ordered my cases from EE and they said feb 2006 http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Yup. Lotta holo trading. Especially cuz they will probably make some holo appropriate characters, like Palpatine, Vader, Maul, and then some inappropriate ones, like Fett, Jar Jar, Han, and other non-holo characters. A whole new reason for scalpers to buy figures! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I've heard a lot of complaining about how easy it is to pop out the holos. Isn't that a good thing as we can have the holos without destroying the cards?

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Not really, people will be poping them out in the stores and walking away with them.
