If you were given the chance of having a free case full of 1 particular Saga toy, which would you pick?

That's easy, Jorg Sacul's. So I could keep one, and share the rest of the case with the people here that weren't able to get one. :)

Such a noble Gungan. :)


I'd probably do the same, since there're more than 11 hungry mouths to feed here....

Do they HAVE to be Saga figures?

How about a case full of Zuckuss! :)

I'd pick the Sacul figure, too. But there would be a strict verification procedures. If you have one, you don't get another. If you're going to sell it, you don't get one. If you lie about not having one, that's okay b/c you're not getting one. I think candidates homes/businesses would be checked. Their location at the time of C2 and polygraph tests.:crazed:

Padme Arena or Ani Outland Peasant Disguise.
Whichever one is more HTF at the time.

Obviously Sacul is #1 but #2 for me would be a case of the Bloody Stump Luke. It's a legitimate variant and will be sought after for some time IMO.:greedy:

Jabba with glob and frogs. I know it's not a saga toy but rather an episode one toy. But i think if you want a collectible that's going to be worth money you should go for the oddities rather than just some figure that got painted wrong. You don't get more odd than Jabba with glob and frogs. I forsee this item being worth rather a lot in future years. Ask any collectibles expert and they'll say the same, it's the novelty value that adds to the monetary value. Not necessarily the shortage in the production run.

If I had to pick a real saga figure or toy I'd go for Ephant Mon. Just something about that figure that calls out to me. :)

I don't care which variant of Bespin Luke it is-- since I've yet to find a single one, I'll just take what I can get!

Dooku Fett

I would take a case of Bloody Lukes. :)

My local Kaybee Liquidator just got a case of these @ $1.99 ea. And you know what they say about a desperate Hutt and his money. :D


Ephant Mon was my second choice, followed closely by the 50/50 of the Geonosian and Tusken w/ Massif - aka the Kennel Club of the Outer Rim. :p

I'd take a case of Stormtrooper 4-packs or Concept Stormtroopers.

Stormtroopers just flat our rule! Plus with all those stormies it would be the best troop-builder case ever! Imagine how many 4-packs you could fit into a case that they use for saga figures. Probably like 200 or so stormies.

Go to a KB Toy Works the 2 i have been to have about 20. They are practically free.

I'm there with the stormtrooper multi-pack idea. All the old potf2 ones look like they're line dancing in dioramas!!!

Failing that then it'd have to be Dooku aplenty as we ain't getting him that often!

Bad Hasbro - go to your room.

I was implying that I feel this item is a future goldmine. I wouldn't want more than the one I have but if you wanted to collect to acrue in the future, you would be better off going for the oddities of the line not the widely released figures. The holographic light up packs that went down like a lead balloon at WAL*MART will be worth a fortune one day. Take a look at other areas of toy collectibles like tin toys or whatever. It's the weird and wacky ideas that get made which are the most coveted by collectors. It's not the rarity that counts but the novelty. Five year from now how many of us won't have a Dooku or Yoda? These are very common items and really not that hard to locate if you put a little effort into looking. Jabba with glob and frogs would probably have been overlooked by most as a stupid item and not worth buying. But that's why it's worth buying becaiuse it is stupid. Things like the bobble heads will be more valuable than the Dooku or Yoda figures. The playschool all in one adventure sets will be more valuable than Dooku or Yoda. The palm talkers will be highly valuable in the future. more so than the action figures.
The only value in action figures is if they are exclusives. The rest are just nothing really. Sure they may have a few moments of the high life on EBAY auctions but ultimately thay are all far too common to be of any real value. :zzz:

Not Saga figures, but:

Case of Darth Vaders with removeable helmet and "white" lightsabers. Why? POTF2 cases have 4 figures more than the current cases plus they could be traded to scalpers for a Sacul and depending on how gullible the scalper is, possibly a Toy Fair Vader to go with it.

or

Case of Vlix figures which would most likely be worth multiple Saculs and Toy Fair Vaders in trade which would make it possible to distribute more than just 12-16 Saculs and/or TF Vaders to the collector community.

That is, if nobody kept the Vlix's or Removeable helmet Vaders. ;)

i'd have to go with a full case of darth sidious holograms from ep1. oh wait i found a full case of them in 1999 and shared them with freinds. funny how they limit figures at the beggining and then send full cases at the end. it wasnt really a full case of them it was 8 cases with 2 in each that i made a case.

Well, if it didn't have to be a Saga figure, Id say Dark Troopers or Space Troopers. But for Saga, Id say Geonosians. I open all mine (Unless I ever get a carded vintage one), and one can never have too many Geonosians... :D

I'd get a case of Concept stormies, then mail them out one by one to Tycho, Caesar and others who voted for Riekeen and impdig as a consolation prize...or just to rub it in. ;) :crazed:
