When I got my covert ops troopers today It came with a flyer showing a few of SWS.com exclusives for 2006. There's a pic of Gentle Giants chromed Vader statue, (Hasbro) 2 figures from The Ultimate Lucas Collection, Blue face Lucas from ROTS and some other figure I don't recognize. and some Trooper rings .

Now where did this Ultimate Lucas Collection come from? Way off in left field it seems.
Here's some pics of the Flyer.

The other figure is his daughter.I thought so, but hoped it wasn't. Damn I wonder who the others are? :rolleyes:

So is this news to everyone? The figures from SWS.com have been shipping for a while. I'm the only one to get this flyer? I just can't believe it hasn't popped up before this. So the rumor that we were never going to ever get a Baron is debunked.

Someone from RS got one today as well. I added 2 pic's just for you Rich!

Yep, that's Amanda, she is in the return of Palps to the Senate scene, the Baron scene as mentioned, and she had dialogue in that one deleted scene.

I'll have to get the Baron fig to compliment the Sacul. lol

The Ultimate Lucas Collection is not complete without Flannel-Shirt Lucas and USC Film Student Lucas. Aw heck, why don't they just make a Lucas Evolutions set. That's better.

It was only a matter of time before they made a figure of Lucas but I too am surprised that no one has mentioned or gotten this flyer Turbo.

I'm just wonderin' if the figure of Lucas' daughter is gonna be bigger than the Ephant Mon figure?:yes::yes::yes:

Wow. I've always told myself that I would never buy a George Lucas figure, but I'll definitely get these. So, once again I've lied to myself.:bandit:

Man Even Flow I see you are spreading the news all over town. :thumbsup: ;)

Did you see it? Did you see it guys? I made SSG's front page, just wait until I tell my mom, she will be so proud.lol My 1st time, it's kind of cool.

Hey Steve, thanks for the reference pics. Good thing I have the flyer, if I didn't it would just be a rumor and all the sites but SSG would be running it.:yes: :twisted:

No, thank you! I got my Trooper about a week ago and no flyer. :(

If possible, try to rescan it (I don't want to use the one taken from another site). The larger, the better (scan at 300 DPI) and email them to me.

Turbowars
11-19-2005, 10:18 AM
OK I did it. Use this Scan Steve.

These are totally unexpected, but really awesome! I never expected these. Hey, what do you know, exclusives that are actually new and don't suck. :D

I wonder what the other 2 will be? Katie as Chi Eekway and Jett as Zett Jukassa? Or maybe Katie as the Outlander Club twi'lek? Or plain clothes George? Or Marcia with Divorcing Action? :confused:

Eh? :beard:

Baron: "No flannel flight suit? Flannel really brings out your eyes" :p

I just wonder if these figures will cost more than $12 since it's the Lucas family. If not, $12 sounds good for brand new figures. Alot better than the Trooper.

One of the other figures is rumored to be his daughter as the Twi'Lek she played in AOTC.

Don't know the other, though it could possibly be a repack or repaint of the Zett Jukassa fig.

Flannel "Director" Lucas would be AWESOME. Hell, I'll even make a diorama of him directing a scene, that would be funny. (who knows this may even create a sub line-Crew figures. Hope thay have enough plastic for Rick McCallum...SARCASM ALERT THERE, ha ha)

*gasp!* Mr. JabbaJohnL said the M word! (Marcia)

These better not be a gimmick to sell overpriced figures. But I'm chrious to see what happens with it.

I'd get a Stormtrooper ring if I could wear rings (I'm waaaay to figgity).

Since they did Jett for the regular line, they should make Lil Jett from AOTC instead. lol

After receiving a call from Turbo last night, I checked a package I had gotten from SWS.com on Friday but hadn't opened yet. The flyer was indeed in there. The Vader statue looks cool, hopefully they make enough of them and they're not too pricey. So we know 2 of the 4, with Katie in Twilek outfit from AOTC probably being the 3rd figure. Isn't the 4th figure going to be a Stormtrooper with removable helmet (with George underneath)? I remember reading something about that being a possible figure on rebelscum a few weeks ago.

These are all the possibilities for the other two. (Though I guess one could be another George, but I doubt it.)

Holy balls, I didn't know that there were that many characters played by the Lucas family.

I find it interesting that the Baron figure is not quite as . . . er . . . "large" as it needs to be. :D

I'm diggging the rings! I could wear a Stormtrooper ring, and when I punch someone I didn't like, I could leave an helmet Imprint on their mug!

Kidhuman
11-23-2005, 11:14 AM
This is crap, I cant believe they are gonna give us this s**t for characters with 2 seconds of screen time. And to top it off, they will probably be 50 bucks a pop. The Lucas collection, its a family potrait damnit.

So these are going to be EXCLUSIVE to fan club members only? I hope not!

I wouldn't pay $15 for each figure. I would buy the $12 though.

Baron Popanoida made the Top 20 ROTS polling list we did a while back.

I'll take him off and buy (1) I suppose.

While they're at it, how come they haven't made a flannel operations Clone Trooper?

Battle Droid
12-21-2005, 08:27 PM
Zett is a repack.

Turbowars
12-21-2005, 09:03 PM
Yeah the description states that there is only 3 new sculpts in the 4 pack. I think the sets kind of lame. Sucks that Hasbro wasted their efforts on these 3 figures when there's much better ones in the OT and PT.

I won't cry if I can't get a hold of this. I do sort of want the Baron Papanoida figure though. They did a nice job on that one.

If you do, I'd still like you to order me one.

12-22-2005, 07:21 AM
Awesome. These figures look tight.:thumbsup: Sure Zett Jukkasa is most likely a repack but who cares, when you get 3 brand new figs. I'll definitly be picking up a set of theses. Maybe 2 . One to open and the other keep in the box.

JEDIpartner
12-22-2005, 09:05 AM
Yeah... they are nice. I'll even forgive them for the Zett re-pack because the rest are great! I just ordered mine... :)

I've already done that. Just a repaint of the hair and robes and it makes a GREAT Teen Jedi Anakin!

Also, I ordered a set of these for myself and hopefully will be going in on a group order with my local collecting group for another set to open. (Saving $4 on shipping)

Crap. I didn't know you could order them already. I'll mull over it for a while. But I'll probably buy.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
12-22-2005, 12:16 PM
Gee, a repack of Zett Jukassa. Just what I always wanted. :rolleyes:

Apart from that, this looks good. But $8.75 a figure . . . Merry F***in' Christmas, Hasbro!

To make it worse, if you take into account that Zett is a repack then it's almost like you are paying $11.67 each fig and that's not account for shipping.

If you buy only one set it's $7.95 s/h on top of the $34.99 cost of the set itself. That comes to a whopping $14.31 for each of the new 3, (considering Zett to be a freebie pack-in).

A rip yes, but the only way we'll get these figs. I say better to get them over with now, so we can get ones we really want, in the hopefully not to far off future.

JawaJoe
12-22-2005, 05:14 PM
After some thought ive decided not to get these. The only figure I find remotely interesting (zett) I already have. The other 3 are just plain LAME and as others have stated the price is insane.

As much as I love George, I'm passing on the set as well. If they came out as single figures in stores I'd probably get them. But not at this price. I'm not playing Hasbro's game.

Have to agree they are expensive! Wish shipping didn't have to be so much, or there was more product available to make up for it, like being able to puchase a sideshow 12" at the same time but...
I hate that I am going to try to justify this...
I did spend 12.99 for a target clone that came with a $2 case, so I paid 10.99 for a clone in a standard ROTS package! Make me able to justify 10.50 x 4 in a nice window display box. And even though Jett is a repack, the clone is a "repaint", same with Lava Obi/Ani.
Again though, I hate that I can justify this, it's like saying WOW gas is ONLY 2.50, it was almost 3.00 a few months ago...just crazy.
I like the obscurity of the characters, and being able to see the Dressing A Galaxy exhibit at FIDM and seeing those costumes in person, makes me appreciate the figs.
