Sorry to start a thread for this but there's one for the 2003 vehicles and one for the 2003 basic figures so why not a deluxe thread?
That said I was checking the rumour list and so far there's these listed :
Super battle droid builder set (w/ interchangeable limbs that will work with the deluxe C-3PO perhaps?)
Commerce guild dwarf spider droid (w/ sound effects perhaps?)
Flying Jango Fett Kamino battle (w/ tower section perhaps?)
Force powers Obi-Wan Kamino battle (w/ landing platform spring loaded attack feature perhaps?)
But I've also seen a listing for a screen scene version of Obi-Wan and Jango Kamino battle so which is right? And what else can we expect?
There has been rumours flying round of a new Gamorrean pig guard with Bubo the frog-dog as a pack in. Given the size of the characters I would say that this would constitute a deluxe sized pack but so far the deluxe sets have either been some kind of gimmick laden figure 2-pack or one single decent item like the Nexu.
So, what offers a good option for deluxe status?
Orray w/ Geonosian
Shaak with bucking action
RIC-920 w/ rickshaw speeder
Aiwha w/ kaminoan
And from the older movies:
Dianoga beast (companion to the trash compactor Wal-Mart exclusives perhaps?)
Ewok w/ catapult
Ewok w/ glider
Luke Jedi w/ throne room gantry section
Han w/ Bespin torture aparatus
'exploding' STAP and Battle droid
Imperial officer w/ 'exploding' detention block sentry station
This is all pure speculation and I only just thought these up on the spot so please don't anyone take it as anything else. I just got to wondering what hasbro would come up with for 2003. We haven't had a deluxe update yet, so why not speculate?
