Well, they're not really rehashes. They're just recards. :)

We just got Ig 88 in the bounty hunter pack w/ bossk at Toys r us. Tusken have always sold slow. Last year when you couldn't find any new Saga figures. The ones that I found with any regularity were Padme and Tusken. The jawas won't be too bad. Especially if we got a Sandcrawler to put them in around the same time (HINT HINT!). Any trooper will always sell well.

I'm excited to see repackaged figures this summer and fall! These assortments will add a great variety of characters to the pegs and I also think that the figures will look amazing on the new cardbacks! I'm an opener and won't be buying any of them (well, maybe a few of my favorites to leave carded) and that will give me a few months to save up money for a vacation, EPIII figure onslaught, etc. Remember these repacks will appeal to collectors new to the hobby or those that may have missed them the first time around and since 2004 has been a year of waves that come and go quickly there are alot of figures that have yet to see any serious shelf time.

I'd like to see a new Zuckuss and 4-LOM as I don't have either of those from the modern line.

LOL

Are you recarded?

LOL

Don't be a recard!

LOL

They sure do have a lot of recards over there at Hasbro!

LOL

The only one I really want is IG-88 as I dont have any modern form of him. I dont mind the rest for "army building" purposes. I dont open them, but one day I might, so it is good to have them around.

Er, Bossk and IG-88 are weird choices for a line that's supposedly for people who want the main characters. Anyway, I might get a few IG-88s paint them black, and add a few modifications for some of Durge's IG droids. And more Tusken Raiders, Jawas, and snowtroopers are always welcome. Hopefully the Tusken Raider will be the 2003 version but without the head-losing feature, and the snowtrooper will be the 2003 version without the big gun (we already have enough of those).

I guess the recards are good for those who missed these the first time around.

The problem I have being a carded collector as well as an opener is do I buy these? I'm not one of those collectors who has to have every carded version of a figure, quite the opposite actually. I like to have only one of each character carded. If they end up getting put on multiple cards I usually go with the card design I like the most and the OTC cards are far and away the best design so far IMO. So I'm debating on whether I should get rid of my carded Saga figures that are going to be duplicated in the OTC line.

Is anyone else considering doing this or something like it?

Well, I wont buy anyhting that I already have Hellboy. There might be a few, like the army builders(stormies, biker scouts, etc.) that I will buy on any card. But the Jedi Luke, will stay on the shelf, like the CT Han.

I'm kind of glad to see those. I was thinking about getting more Snowtroopers, Tusken raiders, and Jawas. You can never have enough Jawas.

You can never have enough Jawas.

But you CAN have too few droids for your Jawas to tend... which is the case at present.

Brilliant, SK, I'm very disappointed that I didn't think of that sooner. :)

HELLBOY is right. These figures are not really "for us."

They are for folks who missed these figures the first time around.

1) because they were under 4-5 years of age
2) because they were under 4-5 years of age back in 1995, 96, 97, etc. til about 1999
3) because the prequels turned them off and they weren't thinking about SW until they hype in 1999 - now when they can get the Classic DVD's, they can discover that there are action figures to go with the classic movies.

There are still plenty of people out there who don't collect, but did 20 years ago, and might start again, now that they can really get back into these movies.

The official site just posted a list of all of the OTC figures this year. Does anyone have a list of what is new and what is just a repackage? I am getting really confused with all of the re-releases they've been throwing at us lately.

Thanks.

Someone posted a list in a different thread but basically the dagobah wave (ben, luke, yoda, and R2), the bespin wave (lobot, leia, and cloud car pilot) and the vintage figures are the only new figures confirmed. Strong rumors for Bib fortuna, Vader hoth, Veers, and Gamorrean Guard. All the rest appear to be recarded figures.

Exactly right Dindae. The VOTC line is where all the new figures will be.

I wouldn't automatically open all of my Saga stuff to replace it with carded OTC figures. Maybe if I was simply looking for a reason to open them anyway.

You know... what I've been doing, is simply buying (to keep carded) maybe 2 or three figures per card type to have and display. For instance, with the latest Saga "gold" cards, I've only kept carded one from each movie, and they're figures that are new, that I don't already have on another card type. With these OTC cards, I'll do the same. IG-88 is a figure that I opened and don't have carded, so I'll get that one. Same applies to a few others, but I don't see myself going wild and picking up the lot of them, though I suspect these cards are going to look very nice.

I am going to save alot of money. Not buying any re-releases.
