4) Commander Scorch's maybe - EU scene
11+) Gragga ( 4 each for Senate cars E1 & E2), 2 for Mos Espa scenes & pod race audience
4) Pod Race Pilot 2-packs (maybe. depends who it is. Both new, then yes. Sebulba, errr -no.)
6+) Rep Been (4 on Gungan City Council)

Assuming anyone can play, of the 20 basic figures for 2006 we've seen picutres of it breaks down for me as follows:
Pass: Jabba's Palace Chewie, Barada, Carkoon Fett, Snowtrooper,
Hoth Darth Vader, Riekeen, Scorch Trooper, C-3P0/Battle Droid,
Geonosis Yoda, Poggle the Lesser, Geonosis Jango.
Buy: Han in Carbonite, Boushh, Bib Fortuna, Power Droid, Hoth R2-D2,
AT-AT Driver, Sora Bulq, Sun Fac
Maybe buy two of: Veers (still gotta see what he's like without the helmet)
That means I'm passing on 11, buying one of 8, and buying two of 1.
It will be more if some of the later rumored waves are true, but if a diehard like me is only buying 9 of 20 figures Hasbro might want to be worried!
11-09-2005, 12:48 PM
No Sun Fac(s) ?
11-09-2005, 01:00 PM
If the rumors are true I'll buy:
Pass: Episode I Obi-wan, Darth Maul, Coruscant Anakin (unless superior
sculpt), Coruscant Grievous (unless superior sculpt), Hammerhead,
Garindan (unless superior sculpt), A New Hope Han, A New Hope
Luke, Sandtrooper, Death Star Gunner (unless new), Luke Endor
(unless great sculpt), Endor Vader, Endor Emperor, Yavin Han,
Yavin Luke, Death Star Trooper (unless better sculpt)
One of: Rep Been, Naboo Soldier (if it is a new sculpt for sure if it is a pilot
as rumored), podracers (if at least one new pilot), Graga,
Coruscant Fire Pilot, Commander Cody, Coruscant Clone Trooper
(if new), hologram Ki-Adi-Mundi, Talz Jedi, Chief Chirpa, Jerjerrod,
Endor C-3P0 (if can sit), Endor Rebel Commando (if new sculpt),
Yavin Rebel Sentry, Generic X-wing Pilot
Two of: Lushros Dofine, R5-D4, Hem Dazon
This means I would likely pass on 16 figures, buy one of 15 figures, and buy two of three figures.
11-09-2005, 06:24 PM
I'll buy all the new figures, and whichever repacks look better than before (like the kitbashed snowtrooper and R2-D2, and holo Maul and Ki-Adi-Mundi). I think, if I have money, I'll get multiples of the new army builders.
11-09-2005, 06:53 PM
I'll be picking up whatever I can afford....of course having credit cards means you can spend even when you don't have money!!!....seriously though I would love to just get one of everything I want and then some maybe.
PS Good to have you back Tycho.
11 Gragas?? I didn't realise this alien appeared in so many scenes. I don't think I could ever bring myself to buy that many of a background character. I consider them essential and must have at least one of each but DAMN!! :D I guess we shoot ourselves in the feet by not buying up every single background character off the pegs - if we made sure they didn't pegwarm Hasbro might increase the amount of new ones they produce.
Anyway here's my list which allows for the likelihood that the attractiveness of the card might alone tempt me to buy and I'm not even an MOCer:
1 Chewie Boushh's bounty
2 Han Carbonite (1 for palace, 1 for Skiff)
1 Bib Fortuna
1 Boba Fett (card might clinch this one)
2 General Veers (w/500th Vader or Ozzel and AT-AT)
2 Major Derlin (just for the sake of it)
2 AT-AT drivers
1 R2-D2 (would probably find a use for him)
1 General Rieekan (the card, possible future custom material)
1 Darth Vader (again might find a use for yet another one)
2 Gonk droids
??snowtrooper?? not a great looking kitbash but knowing me I'll probably buy one anyway
1 Sorq Bulq
2 Sun Facs
1 Poggle the Lesser (then I'll have one for warroom and one for Arena)
The rest of this wave will depend on how the cards look
2 VOTC Han Endor
2 VOTC Luke X-wing
However many Biker scouts I can get
1 VOTC Greedo
1 VOTC Tusken
2 Moff Jerrjerrod (Emperor/Vader arrival and Emperor's throne room)
1 Chief Chirpa
2 (possibly) C-3P0 ewok deity (if he can sit on the back of landspeeder)
4 Death star gunner (just because 4 is the default number I like to keep these days for Imperial grunts)
??Luke endor confrontation?? depends what this kitbash looks like
1 Vader endor confrontation (unless its the emp wrath sculpt yet again)
1 endor rebel
??Emperor?? (card might do it)
1 Dem Hazon
??Han, Luke and Sandtrooper?? (depends on quality of kitbashes and cards)
1 Han Solo (yavin)
1 Luke Skywalker celebration
??4?? Rebel sentry
1 X-wing pilot
??4?? Death star Trooper (if its a good kitbash)
??Rep Been?? (just not a gungan fan)
??Naboo Soldier?? (wait to see what he looks like, possibly more than 1)
??podracer pilots?? (hate the podrace to be honest but 1 at most)
??Graga?? (1 at most)
1 Obi-wan Kenobi
1 Darth Maul
??Coruscant firefighter pilot?? (just a little bit too insignificant for me)
1 Lushros Dofine
2 Commander Cody (Utapua and hangar bay)
??Anakin Skywalker?? (depends on sculpt, maybe 2 maybe 3)
??Clone trooper?? (what one is he?)
??Obi-wan kenobi?? (again what sculpt)
1 Foul Moudama
??General Grievous?? (probably will depend entirely on the card - I don't like Grievous)

At Least One Of Everything. And Anything I Can Build An Army Out Of.

Tycho, I was really surprised you were passing on the Talz Jedi. I know you do expanded universe scenes. Also you could stick him in the arena.
I was also surprised you passed on R5-D4. Couldn't have the original terrible R5 wander around Mos Espa and put the hopefully better R5 at the droid sale?
11-10-2005, 09:24 AM
I dont collect fiugres much but theres a few I'll be picking up. Like General Veers and definatly Jejerrod.
11-10-2005, 09:28 AM
I don't think I'm going to do the Grievous scenes from the cartoon and I suspect the Talz Jedi is just a way for them to reuse the Muftak sculpt.
R5-D4 was never one of my chief complaints around here. I bought the original one and I'll display it for nostalgia's sake.
11 Gragga's? Well there were 4 SwokesSwokes or whatever they are in the Senate cars and I'm doing the Senate 3 times over for each prequel. They won't be around when Palpatine's Emperor, but then so won't be a lot of aliens. So there's 8. As for Mos Espa - well there were the obvious scenes and the need to use background aliens wherever possible to populate a metropolitan planet like Coruscant.

Since everyone is sharing what theyll prob. be gettin, I figured Id throw in my 2 cents:
-Scorch (Republic Commando)
-Yoda (ONLY if he has soft goods robe)
-Utapah Clone (Although I would think him to be in the Next wave)
-General Grievous (ONLY if it is a good retool)
Wave 6: Endor
-Emperor (ONLY if it is a good retool)
-Endor Rebel Solider (DITTO)
Wave 8: Death Star
If these figures are up to my expactations (which arent that high, suprisingly, except on you know who) than Ill be broke in '06 http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif
