Yesterday at Target, they had a few Hall of Fame figures, with two or three Han Solos. One of them had the incorrect black non-rerelease figure stand that comes with the Jabba's Palace, Yavin, Star Destroyer, and Endor waves. All the other figures had the correct clear bases.

Did you buy it? I hope so, because I want it.

Mr. JabbaJohnL

No, sorry I didn't. I might go back there within a week or two, and I'll get it if you want it.

Thanks, but I doubt it will still be there in 2 weeks. I can never find errors like that in retail. Pick up anything that looks strange.

JT, gosh, I saw someone do all these crazy faces that I'd never seen before on some thread here and I wish I could give kudos to who it was but for the life of me I can't remember and I just hit "quote" to see how they did it...

:glasses: :alien: :silly: :smoker: :Ogre: :rambo: :dis:

I'm sure there's more but I don't know them all. I'd like to find out though hehe


Turbo thank the maker you found that funny...I was laughing so hard it just popped into my head...I was pretty sure you'd appreciate that one but not all the way, then I remembered you have a great sense of humor! ;)

back on track here, I saw the HOF han yesterday at a Cerritos target and they all had the clear stands. I picked up a stormie and a c3po and the stormie doesn't even come with a clear stand at all :(

According to potf2.com, all the HOF figs now come with the black base.

Turbowars
05-08-2004, 12:05 PM
That's strange. I have seen these time and time again and not notice seen one with a black stand.:confused:

Is there a date code that's listed on POTF2.com that states the difference?

sith_killer_99
05-08-2004, 02:00 PM
Hmm, POTF2.com has pics. It seems that they have switched to the black bases.

Great 7 new variations to add to my collection! :D

BTW, here are the figs from HOF that shipped with stands:

C-3PO
Darth Maul
Darth Vader
Han
Luke
Leia
R2-D2

Good luck to all the variation hunters out there! :D

I have seen this wave numerous time, and have never seen any with black stands. I have looked and would of bought some for you guys to trade with.

JediTricks

I'm not surprised they are switching to black stands, they are making a lot of them for the regular Saga figures lately, they have updated the design on 'em to interlock better, and clear plastics are generally more susceptible to breakage. Since HOF isn't glutting our local stores, I am guessing the line is doing OK in a semi-limited-release fashion and we'll be seeing these black stands w/ em in the next few weeks as they propagate the newest cases into the shelving structure.

Look, I use many big words! :D

So far I've only found the Han Solo with the BLACK stand and the Anakin with the PRINTED WARNING instead of a sticker.

How MOMC do you want the Han TURBO??? I've found SEVERAL, just today, but none of them are MINT card or bubble wise. I'll gladly grab one for you for cost, or trade for a Vader, Luke, Leia, 3PO, R2 or Maul with BLACK base of you find them out west.

LMK.

Mr. JabbaJohnL

At Wal-Mart yesterday, all of the based figures (except Vader) were there, and they all had black bases. Just so you know. Does anyone want one?

Saw the Han and Maul black base today if anyone is interested.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
05-12-2004, 05:29 PM
DarthChuckMc and Turbowars, if I come across any I'll get them for you. I heard Wal-Mart still has a lot of HOF figures, and I'm sure I'll go there again sometime this week.

So . . . for Turbowars that's C-3PO and Vader, and DCM, which ones exactly?

Retitled this thread since it's on more than just Han and it's not an error.

BTW, saw a few of these yesterday, I prefer the clear stands. Anybody got a theory as to why we're seeing more Han figs w/ these black stands than the others?

Kidhuman

somewhere in one of these threads, I think it was Sith killer 99, mentioned that this was going to be the norm now with the HOF figures coming with the black stands.

I wish I had a better memory :glasses:

I ran into the HOF wave today at Target. The only one with a black base was Han, so I picked him up. Hopefully I'm able to track down the other black base variants.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
05-13-2004, 05:58 PM
DarthChuckMc, I got Luke, Leia, R2 and Maul. Sorry Turbowars, they didn't have the ones you wanted. DCM please give me a PM if you want them still.

Banthaholic
05-13-2004, 06:47 PM
Mr. JJL, if DCM isn't in need of them let me know, I'd be more than interested.

DarthChuckMc
05-13-2004, 06:50 PM
JJL, I PM'd you about them..YES I WANT THEM!!

I still need a VADER and C-3PO though.....anyone else able to help a brother out?

Thanks JJL

Banthaholic, I may go back to Wal-Mart sometime soon, if you need some. I know there were more HOF figures, but I don't remember if there were many (or any) with the black base left.

I've been only able to find the Han w/ black base, so any other one encountered, if in good shape would rule.

I have a C3p0 with a black stand and a matching black hand....

The clear stand one does not have this left hand marking...

as soon as I get the pic I will post the link.

Mr. JabbaJohnL

Ever since I got the four figures for DCM, I haven't seen any besides Han. If I do see some though I will get them for you guys.

Yow, hadn't actually seen that hand variation before. I thought I would have noticed something like that in the 4 HOF 3POs I've seen, but I kinda doubt it now that I see it n person.


BTW, here's my post about what I've noticed of the various stands (HOF and regular Saga):

- Hasbro makes clear stand tooling;
- Hasbro modifies clear stand tool w/ rectangle to make gray and black stand tooling (bumps on inside edge of interlocking notches);
- Hasbro then makes 1st modification to black stand tooling when they discover stands won't interlock correctly (no bumps, inside edges of notches cut away slightly);
- Hasbro later makes 2nd modification to black stand tool after first modification isn't enough (no bumps, inside edges cut away slightly, "1M" or "2M" stamped on underside) ;
- Hasbro then uses 2nd modification black stand tool to manufacture updated clear stands.

I have examples of all but the original clear stand, I have 1 gray and a few of the original black stand, 1 early modification (1st mod) black stand, and several of the later modification (2nd mod) black stands as well as 1 clear (2nd mod) stand. The 2nd mod clear stand even has the 2M stamped into the underside. This leads me to believe that there may be a LOT of room for variations here, especially if Hasbro manufactured large lots of each type of stand before the figures were manufactured.

ok I made a late run to WM and found a different one...(yes the picture is posted).....the card is wrecked...this is the third different one.

Basically he is a clear stand with a black hand.


TB is getting the

Clear stand plain hand
Black stand black hand.....

I can see this is nutz...that is why I usually don't do variants...but I just stumbled on this...good to share....this is starting to look link the R2-D2 (AOTC) with inserts and different legs from two years ago.
