    12" Jumbo Vintage Kenner Line General Discussion

    Just thought I would drop this on here for more overall topics rather than just specific figures.

    Does anyone that's getting into this line feel a little "odd" getting Fett or the Stormtrooper as their first figure? Personally, it just feels like it should have been Luke to start it all off.

    The only thing I feel odd about is the price. I mean for what we get it sure isn't worth it. They look great, but the value isn't there. As long as the non exclusives are priced as a standard Mini Bust $50-60 I will bite.

    As for not getting Luke first it doesn't seem weird to me. I would had loved to get R2 and 3PO first.
    I believe the OT is all that is SW. Nothing else can ever be. Well maybe R1 and Solo can.

    I totally forgot about R2 and 3P0! Have we seen prototypes of them yet in this scale?

    Also, has there been any talk yet about when/how this line will be sold? They're not going to make ALL the figures exclusives... are they?

    The price is the only thing that concerns me. These cost nearly as much as the Sideshow 12" Star Wars figures (even more than the early SS figures), and with a fraction of the craftsmanship/articulation/asscessories. And they're not as limited as the new SS figures.

    These appear to be just like the originals, as they're supposed to be: very little articulation/accessories, mold lines, etc. I'll be limiting my collection of these to the few figures that catch my eye.

    So far Leia and Tusken Raider are on order. I'll also get Greedo, Hammer Head, and Jawa. Maybe Walrus Man. I know these are all on the way. I was never crazy about 1977 Luke as a kid, so I'll be passing on him. The original sculpt just looks dumb IMO. Don't need a 12" version of it. The same goes for Vader. His head/helmet is so out of proportion. They'll probably be the most valuable years down the road, but I just don't like them.

    I agree.I plan only to get the villians with the exception of Chewie.

    Any word on ship dates from GG on the Han and Chewie?

    I believe it just said February when I ordered.

    The order I would have liked to have seen would be:

    Luke
    R2
    Leia
    Chewbacca
    Vader
    Han
    C-3PO
    Stormtrooper
    Obi-Wan
    Death Squad Commander
    Sand People
    Jawa

    It's just more of an order of vintage release.

    Because to most people, "Boba Fett" is the coolest, rarest, most awesomist character in Star Wars. It's the same for "Snake Eyes" or "Storm Shadow" from G.I. Joe, everybody loves them because everybody else does. I agree, Luke should have been first for nostalgic reasons but as you can see, Fett blew away the Stormtrooper right out of the gate. It's kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy (or people are sheep), when everybody says Fett is the coolest, most people will fall in line and agree...

    Hope I didn't hurt anyones feelings with this post...

    No feelings hurt...lol. Just don't question my reasons for buying these again!



    I see your point on them wanting to start it off with a bang by going after the characters that would get the most attention. Hopefully, now that they've got that out of the way, they can tackle the characters in a more natural release order.

    If you go back, GG has started off nearly all their lines with Boba. If not all. I think those Customz or whatever were the only line without the Fett.
