Hoth 4-pack finally spotted
« on: September 11, 2003, 02:55:35 PM »

TRU in Toronto (Steeles east of Yonge) just got in their case of 6 Battle of Hoth 4-packs in at $34.99.  The Tauntaun is Luke's with the broken horn...and Luke has articulated legs so he can ride him.  There are also some Tauntaun "innards" for display purposes.  I don't think the stomach opens.
The Hoth Leia has different legs that the previous hard to find figure, and Chewie is a different sculpt than the previous snowy Hoth figure.
The new figure is the R3-A2 service droid which is orange and white with a clear plastex dome.

They also just got in their first shipment of new Saga figures in months, all on Trilogo cards with the booklet inserts.  Included on the pegs were Boba Fett Pit of Carkoon, Mace Windu Arena, Chewie Mynock, Anakin Secret Ceremony, R2-D2 Factory Excape, and Han Hothin blue parka.  All were $8.99.

The lady who was unpacking the shipment said the next 4-pack is due in November.

Next 4 pack?  Which one is that?  

I presume they passed on the Imperial four pack, given it's been out in the US for months.  

The bounty hunter four pack we've seen (and purchased).  

Now the Hoth.

Maybe they changed the order for Canada and it could be the Imperial 4 pack ;)

Hoth 4-pack in Quebec?

I was informed by Toys "R" Us in Montreal
that we will not get this set because of
the English only packaging.

The TRU here in Kingston said that they should get it within the next 3 delivery trucks. I'm hoping the truck that is coming Monday since thats payday. At least they are setting one off to the side for me when they come in  :)

Just picked up the one my TRU had set aside for me  :)

The Tauntaun is the broken horn and the belly split is a nice feature, especially with the guts half hanging out. My only complaint is Leia looks like she spent too much time in Hawaii.

None in both TRUs in Ottawa.   :'(  This and the Imperial Forces were the 2 I wanted.  I saw the Bounty Hunters and didn't care (didnt' see it today, but why did I see it and not Hoth!??!)

To clear up the new figs.  Leia has the Leia Hoth head and jacket over the POTJ Bespin Escape figure, Chewie is the Cloud City Escape without 3PO, Luke looks unchanged from the previous Tauntaun pack-in, the droid looks like the AOTC preview astromech painted orange, and the Tauntaun does have a split belly feature, which leads to a strange inacurracy.  The split belly was on HAN's tauntaun, and the broken horn was on LUKE's.  Hasbro made a small error here.

By the way, it's good to be back after several months of unplanned downtime.  Anyone miss me?
