I would rather no new ones than 1 new figure in a 20 dollar package.

I am fine with the 2 packs, the sets I dont like with 1 new fig in them. I passed on all of the exclusives because of the one fig thing.

Usually the figures show up separately on Ebay pretty quick. That's probably how I'll end up getting Wuher and Blue Snaggletooth, because I just didn't think they were worth a $20 purchase.

Did I read correctly? Did it say we were getting a GH-style Dewback?:love:

Well, last year JJB was in the Naboo boxed set and he is in a 2 pack now, so hold off and they will come to you.

I never thought a Destroyer Droid could look cute.:)

The Dewback looks cool, it's just too bad it's a Battle Pack because I don't need any of those other figures.

The Rancor actually looks pretty awesome! Even though he doesn't really look anything like the actual Rancor.

Kidhuman
02-16-2008, 10:02 PM
I might have ot get the Dewback set and the Naboo. Also the Endor looks pretty sweet with all the Ewoks and speeders.

02-17-2008, 04:09 PM
I love the new stuff, especially now that they made more movie vehicles like Vader's TIE and Obi-Wan's fighter! It's about time!

And Yes! I CAN and will buy JarJar without a major battlepack purchase to get him. I hope they come out with Jabba this way. (probably will eventually).


Now I hope we get: Slave-One, the AT-AT, Republic Gunship, and a reg. TIE Fighter. That'd be so cool!

Destroyer Droid and Jar Jar Binks

Woo!! Now I don't have to buy the boxset for the only figure I want. :D


Exactly what I was thinking. It won't matter to me that it's different than the one in the boxed set. I just want a Jar Jar to play with, er I mean, set-up... :pleased:

jedi master sal
02-17-2008, 05:17 PM
Sweet, I'm looking forward to a lot these sets.

# Plo Koon and Clone Pilot Jag-YES! I'm a big Plo Koon fan, so this is absolute.
# Shaak Ti and Grevious Bodyguard-Excellent. Shaak ti looks cute.
# Slave Leia and R2-D2 Sail Barge-Okay. Not so impressed with this one, but I'm still getting it.
# Destroyer Droid and Jar Jar Binks-Hell's yeah, as mentioned, it saves me from having to buy the boxed set. No to wait on the eventual Qui-gon repack in a 2-pack..
# Padme and AOTC Red Clone Trooper-Not sure but I think these are both repacks. If so I'll pass on these.
# Anakin and ROTS Clone Trooper Blue-Not sure but I think these are both repacks. If so I'll pass on these.
# Kit Fisto and General Grevious-Stragne choice for a 2-pack (I'm talking about the pairing, not that they made these figs.) I'll get it though.
# R2-D2 and Super Battle Droid-Pass it's repack

Clone Wars Playsets w/ Anakin and Dooku-?? what is this. I think I must have missed seeing this.

# Rancor set-I was excited at first when I heard about it, then not so much when I saw it. I DON'T like the gaping mouth feature. This thing should have been HUGE! I'll still get it though.
# AT-RT set-Ok, I'll bite.

# GH Endor Speeder Bike Cinema Scene (Ewoks, Scout Troopers, Speeder Bikes, Endor Luke) (3/23/2008)-Lots of repacks in this set, but I dig the Ewoks, so I'll look to get this one.
# GH Mustafar Cinema Scene (Obi-Wan, Padme, Anakin, pile of Shocktroopers) (3/23/2008)-What? All those Shocktroopers?? Only ones I want from the set are the shocktrooper commander and preggers Padme. I may pass on this set and look to buy loose from eBay.

# Millenium Falcon (3/1/2008)-pass, i have the original release.

Dewback-cool, I'll get this set
Darth Vader's TIE Fighter-absolutely get this set
Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter-sure why not. It's'okay

Tycho
02-17-2008, 06:12 PM
Imagine if Vader's TIE is electronic like Luke's X-wing was!

I would love for any TIE to finally have the fly-by sound that is such a signature of the TIE Fighter!

Luke's plays the SW theme. Vader's could play the Imperial March. How cool would that be?

Wait. I think I'm thinking of the Jedi Force X-wing. Well, no matter. The GH Millennium Falcon is electronic.

Hey, I'm excited! Hasbro finally realised what a gold mine these little suckers are! The re-releases still leave me cold, but the NEW stuff - oh yeah! Plo Koon and the destroyer droid are must-haves, even if that means I have to get another Jar Jar (who is different, by the way). I still want more vehicles, but the new two-packs have me salivatin'.

02-19-2008, 06:42 PM
That does not look anything like the Rancor . . .

But I still like it. :)
At least it's not smiling . . .

The Dewback and Ewoks are grrrreat.

With the exception of not getting the three figures they NEED to have for this line (Anakin without Helmet, Episode 1 Padawan Anakin, and Cermonial Luke), I couldn't be happier with the Galactic Heroes sheduled for release this year.

All of the new stuff is great (as usual), and most of the re-pack make sense.

Due to the fact that this line is marketed toward kids (and not collectors as much as the 3 3/4 line is), they should be doing frequent re-releases of figures so that kids who were too young (or not at all) can have access to them. Also, releasing a figure that has already gone through the pre-production process allows them to be released at a cheaper per figure price, thus making them even more accessible to kids.

Think about Kenner back in the day. I would have NEVER gotten Bespin Luke if he hadn't been repainted with the reddish/blonde hair on a RotJ card. I'm sure the same goes for a lot of kids who were younger than me.

Thunderbird, I'm in San Diego, too. PM with which Wal-Mart please.

I'm not interested in the Falcon, (I have it from the earlier release) but I want Vader's TIE and Obi-Wan's starfighter when those start to show up for sure!

I wonder if you caught the remnants of a larger GH, shipment?

Well, last year JJB was in the Naboo boxed set and he is in a 2 pack now, so hold off and they will come to you.

Not sure if it makes any difference, but it doesn't appear to be the same Jar Jar.

shortcat
03-22-2008, 08:22 PM
No new two-packs in my area yet, but Wal-Mart got lots of the Falcon, and Target had one each of their exclusive sets. I may have to pass on these, just because I have most of the figures in them. The ewok set is tempting, but just that. I really want the new two-packs.

The two-pack Jar Jar is different from the battle pack version. Both his hands are open in the first version.

The first Falcon set had Han, Chewie, C3Po, and a Stormtrooper, but when they repackaged it, they left out the stormtrooper. This is the first time that R2D2 has been in the set.

Tycho
03-30-2008, 04:15 PM
I'm waiting for the 2-packs to get the Ewoks myself: Teebo and Paploo.

- Looks like those are the news ones in the Target cinema scene. I saw it when I was shopping the other day.

I am guessing the above 8 packs will be releaed in two waves of 4. Is there any word on when each wave will be released and which 4 are in each group?

The Target Cinema Scenes are on sale 19.99 but they didn't have the ewok one in MA. SO I'm on the hunt.

PS:you think I would have learned my lesson since I only got three from the first four. When was ****ed to see the artwork change on the box several times!

Picked up three of the four new 2 packs today. Didn't get Gree/Tarful as I saw it and thought I had it already, but apparently that was also a new one. When you collect so much stuff sometimes you loose track of what you already bought. I wish I had kept a list from the beginning.

I'm hopin that there are more two-packs coming than what we've seen. Two lines and two sets of repacks for the whole year seems kinda small. Even with the new vehicles. Maybe they decided to hold some back for SDCC?

I've also seen SaeSee Tiin and Agen Kolar at Toys R Us.

I turned it down at the time, but have now reconsidered and may (probably will) buy this set. I buy most of them, but turn down a few here and there.

I'm definitely all for the new vehicle / beast sets!

My Toys R Us put out the new series by accident (jumping street date) but they weren't even in the system yet, so they couldn't sell them and had someone pull them off the shelves. But I got to see them, and they're keeping the ones I was going to buy for me until they're "street-legal". I'm excited, cuz they look awesome.

I've gotten that quite a lot. Nothing to be that concerned about. Just click "continue" or something to that effect and carry on.

I'm looking forward to the new offerings just as much as I am CW and Legacy. It'll be nice to complete the ROTS Jedi collection.

07-17-2008, 08:04 PM

They had ALL 8 of them. The newest packs with the Destroyer Droid and Plo Koon and Shaak Ti and whatnot. Someone on the morning stock crew wasn't paying attention and put them on the pegs.

Also heard an employee say they had found some box sets earlier that they had to remove too. These, I believe, are the GH Vader's fighter, Obi-Wan's Jedi fighter, and the others...

So you can bet they'll all be out on the 26th with everything else.

that pack is out now over here in Norway, so you guys must have them there too. If you really cant find them let me know and I can ship one over for you (although it is really expensive -- 100kr about 20dollars just for the figures then postage).

there are also some on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/Galactic-Heroes-Princess-Leia-Slave-R2-D2-jabba-barge_W0QQitemZ280254871720QQihZ018QQcategoryZ751Q QssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

I had gone to a few stores a few times and was annoyed at not finding any sign of these (the TIE or the Jedi Starfighter), so I went to HasbroToyShop and ordered them. They had a promo code for 10% off, so that pretty much eliminated shipping.

I also picked up the Rancor and AT-RT sets online from TRU the other day.

I'm finding myself far less inclined to do toy runs now that gas is so expensive. Unless it is available at my local Target or Walmart (both within 2 miles of my home), its gettign to the point where ordering online is easier and almost the same cost when you factor in the gas expense.

waboritas
09-12-2008, 07:26 AM
Good point on the gas. I'm still looking for the JTH Battle Pack. As of this morning, Hasbro took it along with several other items that have been out of stock for a good month now off the site. These little guys are very hard to find.

I saw the stocking stuffers at TRU today; 9.99 each. They only had the Han/Chewie/3PO and Anakin/Obi-Wan/Shocktrooper.

Why do all the holiday figures have to be christmas themed? If these were for Halloween, I'd probably get them. But christmas? Yecch.
