View Full Version : Favorite Preview Figure?

03-13-2002, 11:43 PM
Now that these seem to finally be hitting everywhere -- which is your fav?

Mine is without a doubt: R3-T7.

None of the others even come close to this badboy. An R3 unit? Completely out of the blue like that? No fan poll nonsense, he just pops up at Toy Fair and Viola! A clear headed astro droid at last. Hasbro really did a good job on this guy. The inner details are beyond cool, not at all cluttered or overdone. I especially like the way the "wires" are all bundled together. And that they continued the retro tradition of the clicking head. Heck, I even like the electric accessory thingy -- the better to be zapped by a Jawa with.

Which Preview Figure really does it for you? And why?

I only got the R3 so I can't really judge. I'm not a huge droid fan, but he is definately one of the cooler figures I've seen in the last year.

My Wal-Mart and TRU are flooded with these things. They've been on the shelves for about 3 weeks now and they are everywhere. They must have gotten in 20+ cases a store.

ARg! I hate you guys ;);)

I can't find them at any WalMart in Dallas, and I've been to about 5. R3 is the only Preview figure I'm really excited about, the rest I'll see if I like.

I haven't got'em yet, but here's my decision:
1. R3-T7
2. Clone Trooper (Army builder before main character. :p)
3. Jango
4. Zam

For me the best of the bunch is the Clone Trooper although I have yet to find Jango Fett. I really like the paint job on it and the way it is posed.

Here is a really big surprise:
But I like all 4 of them. The droid is cool w/the clear dome and all. But by far Jango and then Zam at a close 2nd. I cant help it, I love bounty hunters.

Some dirty bloody buggery scalper got all the Jangos, so Drew and I had to settle for the other three.

Of those three, I like:

(probably Jango when I get it)
Clone Trooper (last because you can't put him "standing in ranks" position, just battle position)

Of course you'll like Jango!! Jango is the man!!
Hey JediPartnr, if you dont get one soon, I will help you out. Maybe I can send you one or we can make a trade or something.
Let me know.

03-14-2002, 10:54 AM
I'll keep that in mind! I'm keeping my eye out for it, though... I'm sure I'll find one soon!

Thanks, buddy! :happy:

No problem man.
Ive got 3 carded and one opened, so I could definately get you one just in case.

03-14-2002, 11:13 AM
It's a close one for me. I really like R3-T7 and the Clonetrooper. Both very cool figures.

03-14-2002, 12:13 PM
1. R3-T7
2. Zam
3. Jango
4. Clone Trooper

Kinda like bigbarada is Woooof?

I like R3-T7 the best.

I opened up my clonetrooper. For some strange reason with his sunken in cheeks and dour downturned mouth he reminds me of Chritopher Lee. Are we sure they are clones of Jango?;)

I didn't open that one pose wench, Zam, and I haven't found Jango yet, but he looks pretty one pose himself...

My favorite is actually the Clone Trooper. I have three of them open, standing around Jango and Zam, and everybody's firing (gotta love those blast effects, even though most don't :D ).
I have to wait until the movie comes out before I know how to display everyone. Then I can see what kind of cool scenes I can put up.
But after the Clone Trooper, it would be R3, then Jango and then Zam. Her back looks, I don't know, kinda crooked, and she can't turn her head because the veil gets in the way.

I would have to say mine is R3-T7. I have always been a droid fan.

I would have to say: 1) Zam (good sculpt), 2) Jango (looks good but don't have him yet) 3) Clone Trooper, and 4) R3-T7. I'm not into the droids that much so that's why he is last. I get into the aliens/creatures more.

:sur: :sur:

R3-T7 wins hands down, how can you not like an astromech droid? Astromechs are nearly always in shortage, R2 w/ Holo Leia, R2-B1, R2-A9, and R2-Q9, and R4-M9. I can only hope the Disney droids will be available via the Fan Club as promised, there can never be enough droids.

Zam is decent and the Clonetrooper disappointed, he reminded a lot of POTF2 Stormtrooper, necessary but uninteresting. If he was more like the CommTech Stormtrooper, people would be buying armies instead of a couple.

I didn't even bother to get Jango Fett, I'll wait till April 23rd for the definitive edition.
