View Full Version : Official HASBRO repackaged survey

03-24-2003, 09:00 PM
Can we get a list of possible candidates that you think NEED repackaging for the Saga line?

Many folks have wishlists, but it would take days/weeks to compile the results from all of the figures that people are asking for.

There are some no brainers:
R2-D2 with Leia hologram
Sio Bibble
Pit Droids 2 pack
Queen Amidala with acension gun

but i'm sure there are some from '95-98 that people would love to get a hold of without resorting to eBay or overpriced collectable stores.

I've heard/seen a lot mentioned from the "Freeze Frame" era like

Vader removable helmet

Give us a list of characters from each "wave", say 5 figures from each, and let us vote.

POTF red/green card era
POTF freeze frame era
Shadows of the Empire
POTF commtech era
POTF Flashback era
Episode 1 era

I myself am lucky enough to have everything released up to this point, but I am not opposed to buying old figures in updated packaging.

My votes:

POTF red /green era: Garandin (Long Snoot)

POTF Freeze Frame era: Zuckuss

Shadows of the Empire: Leia (Boushh)

POTF Commtech era: R2-D2 with Leia hologram

POTF Flashback era: Aunt Beru

Episode 1 era: Sio Bibble

POTJ era: Biker Scout

And keep shipping EPHANT MON!!!

For starters:

Captain piett (resculpted straighter leggs and arms please)
Death star gunner (added knee articulation would be a bonus)
ASP-7 worker droid w/ IM4-099 patrol droid
Clean Imperial scout trooper (added articulation would be nice)
Death star trooper (resculpted straighter legs and arms please)
Naboo royal guard (added articulation would be nice)
Naboo royal security (blue uniform variant as well please)
Gungan warrior from Fambaa (w/ farseein accessory please)
Ishi Tib (grey costume color variant too please)
Han Solo w/ Tauntaun (split belly and spilling guts please)
Bantha w/ Tusken raider

There are many many that need it. Off the top of my head

Sio Bibble
Clean Biker Scout.
Admiral Piett
Weequay FF
R2 w/ Holo Leia

For fans that missed them they should repackage:

Sio Bibble
Ephant Mon (if they don't keep shipping him)
Bo Shek
Darth Sideous Hologram

Here's a fairy tale figures I think could use resculpting:

Lobot (without disco pose)
Han in Hoth (Sorry - the saga version reminds me of a hernia. Third time can be a charm)
Dagobah Luke (although I like the first version, more detail would make this figure the must have with the right accessories)
Corcuscant Guard (great figures, but when did they draw their rifles or have that stance during episode I. How about a sculpt that can let us put them at attention.)

Here's my top 5 list again:

1. Darth Vader - MOTDS
2. TC-14
3. R2-B1
4. POTJ Sandtrooper w/ orange pauldron (yes, I know there's a 4-pack)
5. CTC Stormtrooper (yes, I know there's a 4-pack)

Here's more:

6. R2-R9 red astromech
7. R2-D2 w/ Holographic Leia
8. Boba Fett 300th (painted in ROTJ colours, if not done in the Ultimate Bounty 4-pack)
9. Ishi Tib
10. TIE Bomber pilot
11. Paploo
12. Clean Biker Scout

I want reissues of most POTF2 figures.

Sure I don't need all the versions of luke and leia or vader, but the individual characters, like Beru, Tarkin, Thrawn, Bounty Hunters, ewoks etc

I only got back into collecting with EpI, so there is a vast number of figures I really want, especially the jabba's palace figures etc

04-24-2003, 07:41 AM
Awwww, come on, that was my 51st post.

Don't tell me it's 100 to make Padawan??????

04-24-2003, 04:12 PM
Perhaps it's still 75.

Looks like at least some of the things i mentioned above are happening.

we're getting the farseein accessory with the gungan warrior accessory set and the split belly Tauntaun is happening so that's nice to see. I definately think hasbro should have shipped the patrol droid with the army builder sandtrooper set though.

But it looks like the re-issues will only be core characters on a single card and army builders in the accessory sets.

Oh, Im hoping that they will re-release the Commtech chip version of Han Solo in the cantina. I didnt get enough of these guys when they were clogging the shelves at Toy R Us during their clearance a few years back. I am also praying for the re-release of the Commtech chip Greedo to go along with him.

They are re-releasing the CTC Han Solo and the CTC Greedo was part of the Cantina Sets.

04-29-2003, 02:16 PM
I vote for no re-packs.

04-29-2003, 03:36 PM
Rogure II, I know they are re-releasing Han. It was a joke. The whole point of re-releasing a figure should be because it was hard to find not one that was in the clearance bins.

05-17-2003, 04:16 PM
I hope they just get around to releasing figures period. They're fast losing collectors who are getting antsy and bored with waiting so long to find stuff. Rather than fanny around with repacks how about they just make sure the new stuff gets into the stores hmmmm? That would to me be the best thing they could do right now.
