Which Figure Will Fly off the Pegs in other words be HOT PROPERTY???


I'd say Jango Fett,I mean who wouldn't grab this guy when you see him :)

Count Dooku could be a hot seller but who wants an old guy???


Thoughts/opinions?

I think Jango Fett and Count Dooku will fly off the shelves. I'm not sure that Boba Fett will be a peg warmer or if he'll fly off the shelves.

Jango yes
Count NO

I think the count from sesame street will be counting him on the shelves .....one count two counts three counts a a ahhhhh

The count will end up being like the senator palpatine or chancellor valorum

(not like sio bibble) unless he is made in minute quantities

oops i hope hasbro didn't hear that!

the difference between dooku and the old guys from episode 1 is that dooko will have an active role, i.e. lightsaber battles. this will result is better sales.

boba fett may not sell well however. i picture boba fett being a variation of the episode 1 anakin.

I don't think Jango will SEEM like he's flying off the pegs because there will probably be 6 in a case....plenty for everybody.

All the kids who see Ep2 will want main characters, so Hasbro will anticipate this and overproduce anyone with a major role.

I think Jango Fett may be as hard to find as Maul was in the early days of Ep1, but will eventually even out.

I actually think the more bizarre figures that Hasbro might not be to sure of, like the Tusken female and child, will be produced in smaller numbers and will be much harder to find.

*Gasp* he could become a pegwarmer?

Look on the bright side, if Hasbro uses the same chimpanzees-on-crack that painted the Ep1 figures then you'll have plenty of chances to find a good one.

In 1999, I went through five stores and almost 100 Qui-Gonns before I found one with a decent face.:rolleyes:

I agree with derek that Dooku might break the trend of old guys with little play value.

I doubt it will be the same as Valorum and Palpatine's figures.

Fett and Dooku will be hot, but its hard to tell at this point.As always I will try to get one of each,even if some are not as hot or wanted as others.

The real question is whether to wait until they all go on clearance or buy them opening day.

Jango, Anakin, Dooku.

No no the real question is will they ever be on clearance and still be hanging on the pegs!

Jango Fett and Count Dooku are certainly shoe-ins, especially Jango, who will be the Darth Maul of the assortment. Dooku will not suffer the fate of Palpatine and Valorum because he does more than just talk. And two light sabres is not a shabby audience draw. The rest remain to be seen as little is known of them. I believe Amidala will be popular if she is in the white jumpsuit, Anakin will do better at this age, but Boba Fett may suffer the fate of the E1 Anakin. I did not have the privalige of seeing the Real Scans of other characters before they were pulled from websites, so I have no real frame of reference for others.

Depends on the coolness of the figure, if the Jango Fett figure rocks, then i think that will fly as DM did two years ago.

Which could lead to him becoming a pegwarmer!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that one Jedi alien-looking chick with the funky chin tatoos will be scarce. I can't remember her name, but it's been posted on www.starwars.com. I can see her being a loner in each case and also being released toward the end of the EP2 line making her HTF like Naboo Jar Jar.

Your talking about Luminara Undululi,she has blue/purple tatoos just under on her chin :) She is pretty cool :)

What a fun thread to revisit!

Hehehehe, Sal thought the Count from Sesame Street would be counting Dooku pegwarmers! :D

Props to bigB for calling the Jango warmers!

Look at the date on GNT's last post in this thread. :eek:

It took forever for 4/23 to get here...then it flew by.

Yoda and Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, because if you haven't found him, and you find him at a store you'll get him. Or, as many as their are at the store. Thus, making it harder to find the figure. :)

I would have to say the peg warmer here is the Clone Trooper. Yoda, doouke and afterwards are hard to find.

well, now that they have been out...they are dooku, yodfa, hd ani, and maybe dex in my area........

How about an old guy who can kick everyone's @ss!? (except of course little green gymnasts :D ) Yep what a difference that can make, eh? :) Yoda's always been popular so it's no surprise him being a hot seller. And thanks to his newly discovered "energy" in AOTC, well there you go... :)

new energy....he's had it all along but never used it!

Well, Yoda is quite sparse here. I have seen him, but only a few at a time.
