    Post Lots of repackaging

    Hi all,

    I sure you all know. That lately hasbro has been repackaging alot of the same figures (exp. Eeth koth, Rebel Trooper, Imperial Trooper, and Teebo) So to be more. Just wondering what you all thought about that. Do you care? or would you rather see them make different figures then just repackaging them. Only reason I ask is because if your a hard core collector like most of us are. It kind of sucks spending $20.00 bucks on a set of 4 figures that aren't really new, just repackaged. Tell me what you think, and thanks for your time.

    Well really you don't have to pick them up, and I don't mind them rereleasing some figures as long as they make sense. Such as for the astromechs, or the characters in the Imperial 4-pack, or the Hoth pack. Stuff like the Bounty Hunter pack, KE Jango and FB 3PO getting planned for rerelease kinda makes me mad though. There's much better stuff they could have made in place them.

    If I already have them I won't buy them. I have the Teebo, and Imperial trooper and all so I don't need to get them. I would get a Sio Bibble or others that I missed if they did those. Maybe Hasbro Fan Chice 6 or another poll would be good to get one that we missed.

    I like em, because I only really got back into toys around the end of 2001, and didn't get back into Star Wars until the middle of 2002.

    It's cool to be able to get figures I missed, without paying higher costs for some of them.

    I don't mind the rebel fleet troopers and the imperial officers because they do at least have new heads. I can't for the life of me see the point of releasing Teebo again though. Eeth was in the movie so the kids who missed him first time round will get him. I can see the point of why hasbro is remarketing the better sculpts of the core characters although i wish they'd reconsider releasing another boring Jango and Darth Maul.

    I'm hoping they'll look back over the production runs of some hard to find stuff and redo that like Leia as boushh or Ishi Tib or the last wave of Episode one. Those are worth repackaging because hardly anyone got them first time round. Beasts would be nice to see repacked, the bantha is a terrific beastie and so is the ronto, Now we've just had the sandtrooper army builder set released how about the Dewback with retooled sandtrooper? Wouldn't take that much to do it. The Eopie would be good for most of the world to get a chance to get one. There's better stuff could be done on re-releases but not at the expense of getting new characters and fresh assortments out.

    I love card variations so yeah it's cool, but like EJ said, why Teebo? Why not a Zuckuss or R2-B1? The molds are there just like Teebo's.

    Thanks for the response guys. I for one will buy preety much anything. I have both rebel and Imperial troop variations. Can't say I have all the saga set w/o buying repackaged figures. Its nice to hear what other collectors have to say.

    For people who didn't get a Teebo the first time.

    Hell, if I didn't find mine at a flea market by luck, I would have loved to get the chance to buy one on the pegs.

    I can see making repackaging figures, but why repackage figures that come out a couple of years ago. Not POTJ ones that just came out. I now there making a new jedi luke, but it took them long enough.

    Well, I say why because Teebo wasn't a hot figure, They should release some of the hot ones like the last wave of EP1.
