View Full Version : Episode III wish lists - SPOILERS

Now that we have an Episode III figure section, and the figures will probably be here in under a year, which ones would you like to see? What features? What cards?

I hope they don't bring back action features, although I am afraid they might for "more playability." The quality better not go down again like at the start of the AOTC Saga line. This year, Hasbro's shown us what they are capable of, and that's quite a lot. There probably won't be as much articulation as the VOTC figures, but more than usual would be nice. For the cards, I really like the OTC package, so maybe they can have their own style for a while (purple?) and then revert to the OTC style after a few months. I still want a big bubble for larger accessories and figures (not a new scale - I mean Ephant Mon etc.).

Even though not much about the movie has been told, here's a list of what I want to see figure-wise. There are spoilers, so look out.

*Anakin Skywalker (Jedi Knight) with cloak and lightsaber
*Obi-Wan Kenobi (Uttapu) with cloak and lightsaber
*Padmé Amidala (Senator)
*General Grievous with lightsabers and blasters
*Yoda with lightsaber and force powers
*Mace Windu with lightsaber
*Darth Sidious with lightsaber and force powers
*Chewbacca (Kashyyyk Battle) with bowcaster
*Clone Trooper (Kashyyyk Battle) with blaster and binoculars
*Battle Droid with blaster
*R2-D2
*C-3PO
*Obi-Wan Kenobi with beast (beast pack)
*Darth Vader with removable armor (late release)

When do you think we will see our first Ep3 figures?

When do you think we will see our first Ep3 figures?
I'd say prolly sometime around next April, much like the situation was when the Episode 1 figures were released before the film. Then again, and knowing Hasbro, they could very easily release some figures in the "Sneak Preview" form a few 2 or so months ahead of the flim (possibly sooner). Most likely they'd release a Greivous figure since we've seen him in the Clone Wars cartoon and in the Insider magazine (among other forms of SW news), and most fans now already have a good idea of what he looks like. My best guess though, judging from past experience, would be that the Episode 3 figures will most likely start hitting shelves (assuming Hasbro amps up their distribution) a few weeks before the film is released or roughly the same week as the film is released.

Ok thats for that. I just heard somewhere we might be getting sneak preview this year. We will see...

I'm really hoping to get a Geonosian Orray with Picador in this list. :)

Hahaha..funny you say that because I have wanted that before Episode II came out..:D :rolleyes: :crazed:

So have I - it's a great potential beast pack. I don't know why Hasbro won't make it.

-Durge-
05-12-2004, 09:12 AM
Hopefully Hasbro will get their finger out of their arse and make the Picador with Orray. I think it will be very popular.

I want any type of army builder there is in the film. Definitely the Neimoidian Troopers, Mustafarians (That's Passel Argente's race right? or is that Shu Mai's) In any event army builders!

Of course all of the main characters with the obligatory differently dressed Padme's.

Lots of different races of Jedi!

Most of all though, I just want great articulation/sculpts/paint app for whatever figs Hasbro decides to make. Forget the hokey gimmicks and either give us a standard pose fig or one with alot of articulation that allows us to put them in the poses WE want to.

I'm just looking forward to the new figures when they come out, and interested to see what the card's will look like.

What I really want, like everyone else, is an Anakin/Vader figure (maybe an ultra figure with the chamber) with a 2 piece helmet. Also I'm looking forward to the new Clone/Stormtroopers. :D

All I ask is; No action features! Super Articulation! Accuracy! No more "mini-statues"! Even distribution! No short packing! Figures that fit in vehicles! ...
Am I forgetting anything? Hmm... I guess that covers it. By the way, I've checked out a few spoilers here and there, but some of you guys are talking 'bout stuff I haven't heard of yet! Where are you finding this out?

jedi master sal
05-17-2004, 07:45 AM
starwars.com (hyperspace) puts out alot of this info.

Also check out Star Wars Insider. There's an illustration in the latest one that shows three races of soldiers from the Confederacy (the ones I mentioned above)

Here's another note to check out...Check out the illustration in this link. It has Grevious in it but the more telling tale is the flags in the background.

http://www.joecorroney.com/cgi-local/imageFolio.cgi?action=view&link=Star_Wars/Star_Wars_Insider_Art&image=75GeneralGrievousFinal.jpg&img=36&tt=img

You can clearly see a Republic flag in tatters and the other one is the Confederacy flag. If you merge these two flags together you get the Imperial symbol.

At a recent convention here in Pittsburgh, I met with the artist (Joe Corroney) who rendered the illustration and commented on this. He was surprised because it seems not too many people picked up on that (I'm surprised to. For me it was a no-brainer). Anyway, he mentioned that we will see this in EPIII. (The flags that is) It is one of those little nuggets that Lucasfilm subtly allowed out.

So now you also know the history of the Imperial symbol, where it came from and why.

So you know, Joe is the guy who illustrates the Republic Holonet News and CIS Shadowfeed in the Insider. And has done some work for the net as well. He's a great artist IMO and has a good style for SW.

Unfortunately those two articles mentioned may not be coming back. We just got word that thy will nto be in the next issue and it's unclear if they are coming back after that.

Here's the recent poll from sw.com about this being on the net:

http://www.starwars.com/community/poll/OriginalPollResults.html

Would you be interested in the return of HoloNet News online?
Poll Dates: 5/4/04 - 5/11/04
Yes! Most definitely! 56%
Not particularly. 9%
I have never heard of it. 35%

Here's a link to the site, though now it's in limbo so there won't be any new updates until the okay comes down from Lucasfilm.

http://www.holonetnews.com/56/archives/

Anyway, if you read all of those, you'll be able to glean alot of information about EPIII and what you may see in the movie.

(Sorry, couldn't help a shameless plug for my bud and fellow artist)

Thanks for the info. I do still have a subcription to hyperspace, and I remember the picture of Grievious from the last issue of the Insider. I agree on your opinion of his artwork, I find it to be a lot better than some of the other stuff floating around in the Star Wars universe. I'd like to see more of it in the future. And I see wha tyou're sayning about the flag. Somehow I miss stuff like that :stupid: Thanks again.

Your list looks pretty complete, BobaPhlegm.

After the initial Ep. 2 wave is introduced, I hope Hasbro doesn't forget to release some older figures the fans are still asking for.

Hasbro hasn't released an Obi-Wan figure in Jedi robe since the POTJ line. I got tired of waiting and customized one myself for AOTC. I'm hoping this is one figure that won't be overlooked.

DarkArtist
07-27-2004, 08:14 PM
I just hope that the figures will be normal and not have too many crappy gimmicks. Also Hasbro definatley should make two of the new Jedi Starfighters, regular and Anakin's.

Bacta Beast
07-27-2004, 08:20 PM
I don't expect to much of Hasbro anymore! The picture of the Gen. Grevious shows action features. So obviously they didn't listen to us about that! I'll just be happy if we can find the product, and if the characters actually fit in vehicles I'll pinch myself!
By the way what does everyone think about the packaging? I was kind of hoping they would find some way to play off the success of the current packaging.

jedi master sal
07-28-2004, 05:07 PM
The packaging is quite a departure from all of the previous lines.
My guess is that they really want this to STAND out. And it works to!
I personally do not like the "stylized" Vader, but to each there own. Does it really matter though what the packaging looks like? We're still going to by the stuff.
For openers like me it certainly hold as much weight with regards to what it looks like. I'm not buying SW for the packaging (OTC aside-I really dig the retro look). I buy it for the toys.

hango fett
07-28-2004, 05:55 PM
we keep ours in the pack unless i see one i really like then my dad or i get it and tear the blasted thing open and set him up. i oculd care less about the package, just maybe something that stands out like the new one so i can always tell if there is something new at the stores...

All I want is a Super Articulated Grievous with removable cape, arms that split into 4 and a magnetic belt that you can attach lightsabers to. If that were the only Episode 3 fig, I'd be happy.

You will see the first wave of Sneak Preview Figure in March next year :)

Ep3 wish list:
Simple,more clones,more clones and more different clones :D

jedi master sal
07-29-2004, 10:05 AM
There's a rumor we'll see them in November. So basically, we'll see them when we see them and not beofre. While we may see pics of them and even Hasbro may say they are going to be in stores by a certain date, we all know that what the big "H" says and does are two completely different things, much of the time.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
03-30-2006, 07:20 PM
I've changed my mind on the purple cards. I think I'd like to see some kind of lava-themed package, though I would still like to see an OTC-style card after a few months.

I heard about Grievous having some bodyguards, so I'll add that to my wishlist. I hope it isn't horribly preposed or anything.
