View Full Version : AOTC Sneak Preview Figures
04-25-2002, 11:45 PM
Just curious, how rare are/were these? I was looking for some figures tonight and I happened across these at a local K-Mart, they had 4 different Sneak previews;
A droid, R5-D4 (?)
I only bought one, (Jango), because he looked incredible and because I only had $7 on me and left the credit cards at home to avoid temptation...hehe, anyway, was I lucky to see these or are they everywhere?

They're not really rare, just HTF as they haven't been distributed very well. The droid you mention is an Episode II droid - R3-T7.

I can get ANY of those around here. Not very HTF here in MI. I only got Zam and R3-T7. I'll probably get around to Jango and Clonetrooper at some point. R3-T7 is my fav though. Very well done.

I'm curious if these are still rare, and would be worth getting or hanging onto. Last I looked, Amazon has all of them for $7.99 each.

Not rare around me. They're actually warming the pegs at several of the local TRUs and KBs.

i'm still trying to track down jango and cloney.
got the other 2 the day they got on the shelves out here

There are none over here in The Netherlands.

The preview Zam is a real piece of garbage IMO. Jango is nothing special really, if you ask me. I love R3-T7 and the preview clonetrooper though. But since the clonetrooper is locked into that single pose I never bought more than one of him.
As far as being hard to find, they show up here sporadically. They aren't pegwarmers, but they're not super rare, either.

I like the Zam. I don't know why everyone is knocking her. The new one is good, albeit a little knock-kneed. The preview on has the veil over her face and that's a nice one to have.
A K-Mart on the far wast side of Cleveland still had or reordered on the preview figures as of 23.04.2002, but they are rather HTF around here.

I got them when they were first released just because I was so excited to get some EP2 stuff. After the EP2 toys were released I realized they were really crappy except for the R3. I wouldn't get them if I had known.

Still on the pegs at my local TRU. R3 and Jango are the only two I got, and I got two of the R3's. Great figure, works well in different dioramas.

I can get all four, but the prices I'd have to pay are crazy, so I only got Jango.
05-22-2002, 12:16 PM
I got Jango and the Clonetrooper.....
they're pretty easy to find......
I got them all, and they are clogging shelves everywhere.

Ever since 4/23 they've been warming the pegs in my area. Although I have not seen very many sneak peek Clone Troopers.

Sneak Preview Jango Fett's seem to be few and far between these days. I had a feeling they'd be gone quickly. It's a bad *** figure. Much better then the other AOTC Fett's in my opinion.

I like the Clonetrooper best, sure he's kind of locked in that pose but buy a few of them and mix them in with the inevitable resculpt of the white clone and you will have a pretty nice clone army advancing on your battle droids.:)

Hmm. So they're pretty much posed and their articulation sucks, but some of the poses look good. Think I'll pick up that Zam next time I'm at TRU. The preview Jango looks cool from the pictures I've seen (he's long gone from local pegs), too.
Sigh. So much to buy, so little money.

I can't even find any of them in my area.
