what do you think will be the best/worst of next month? i think the best will be either ki-adi or TA anikan. the worst will probably be that podracer guy. your thoughts?

300th post! alright!

Congrats on so many posts! I forsee the new Anakin as easily being the best of the bunch. Darth Maul will probably sell like hotcakes and afterwards people will discover that he's not that great a figure. So I think Maul will sell but be a bad figure.

I'm holding off judgement until 1) carded pictures and 2) in-store sightings. I'm looking forward to Ephant Mon, and possibly Anakin. Padme and Teemto are going to depend on the paint jobs. I already have a Maul and Ki that I am satisfied with.

Ephant Mon is going to be great. TA Anakin would be good if he has his cloak. I don't think any of the future wave figures will be that bad. Pilot Jango could really suck if done wrong.

Ephant Mon will be good I think.
Anakin, Maul, and Padme will also be selling just because they're main characters and scalpers will going after'em along with Ephant since he's the Fan Choice figure.
Ki-Adi will probably be a kid's figure since it's an obscure Jedi with a lightsaber.
Teemto will just be there...

06-16-2002, 04:12 PM

06-16-2002, 04:13 PM

Um...Ki-Adi is just a repaint isn't he? From the preview pics he seems like the same figure.....

I've been holding off buying ~any~ Anakin figure just because I'm waiting for the Tatooine Attack Annie. I'm sure that one won't warm any pegs.

06-16-2002, 07:03 PM
I have no idea as of yet! :p

TA Anakin better come with a friggin' cloak! I'll be soo dissapointed if he doesn't. He is wearing it in that scene, but from what little we've seen of the figure, it seems he doesn't have it. Grrr.. must.. have.. cloak!

Nope, all new figure. But if you want one for your diorama, get the one released for Episode I, cause the Episode II version is neutral stanced. :D

Ki Adi, Padme,and the new Maul will grow dust. From what I've seen of the new Anakin he looks like the best one so far, and the Tusken will hopefully be cool as well. How can you guys not look forward to Ephant Mon? Granted he isn't gonna be Mr. Playable, but just look at him!

07-03-2002, 04:13 PM
I do not care i will buy them all.

07-03-2002, 06:36 PM
i'am looking forward to ta anakin

07-03-2002, 06:47 PM
The best of the bunch might end up being Anakin unless he has some freaking gimmick or action that we dont know off. The worst by far is Ki Adi Mundi, hes just a repainted, rehash with a new arm :zzz:

I'm REALLY looking forward to the new Anakin.

Ephant Mon and CC Chewie are the only figures I plan to buy for the rest of the year. None of the others appeal to me in the slightest.

wow! not much of a saga collector are ya big b?

07-04-2002, 11:39 PM
Not really, I'm starting college so money for action figures will be nearly non-existant for a while. Those two figures I mentioned above are the only ones I plan to actively search for. Well, that list is reduced to just Ephant Mon now, since I am getting Chewie in a trade (thanks Dryanta!:cool: ).

I will add that I hope to find the Clone Pilot and Gunship, but don't plan to kill myself searching for them. If I find them and happen to have the money, then great. If I can't find them or don't have the money when I do, then oh well, life will go on.

I want to continue collecting but Hasbro seems to enjoy making that as frustrating as possible. On top of that, my priorities have shifted slightly since I started school, so that leaves very little time and money to go hunting for action figures.
