why the new figs?
« on: September 03, 2003, 10:21:37 PM »

what is hasbro thinking with the new line of toys? nobody wants anything to do with jarjar, and they bring out a toy of ahmed best in the niteclub, same with that sleezebag guy, they gave him a  gun? gotta admit the other toys from the toy show look way cool.

Had a conversation with Adam Pawlus many moons ago in the ole Rebelchat about figures. It was about the up-coming swimming jar-jar. everybody was slamming the figure, as the first Jar Jar was a peg warmer, and not the most fav of characters.
Hence, people didn't rush out to buy........he ended up being short packed, and a bugger to find on the pegs.

If, you feel a figure isn't worth buying, then don't buy it. I've bought figures i find totally crap, both in and out of the bubble. but still find that $10 to plonk down.

i know i shot them down but i will probably still get them. my main question was why can't hasbro produce more of the obscure figs like hermi odle, and more 12" like jabba, an AT-AT?
 i know hermi odle is SUPPOSED to come out in a 3 pack or something...
maybe an imperial officer line...
more cantina figs.....although hasbro is bringing out quite a few figs from anh...

I would presonally love to see more 12" scale beast and vehicles. Could you imagine a snowspeeder in 12" scale?   :o

Just because a figure is on the pegs doesn't make me buy it. I have passed on many.

i i know hermi odle is SUPPOSED to come out in a 3 pack or something..

He was supposed to be released in the Jabba's Aliens Cinema scene (w/ Amanaman and Ephant Mon) about 2-3 years ago, they cancelled the line after the Watto's Box CS. Other's rumoured (that i can remember), C-3PO in throne chair w/ Paploo and Lumat, and a new Hoth 3pack (can't remember figures).
