    I want more Force FX Vehicles made with proper plastics, landing gear and a pack-in non-generic looking figure:

    - Darth Vader's TIE-Fighter w/Darth Vader (from gunner station with added articulation).
    - Y-Wing w/Gold Leader.
    - B-Wing w/Blue Leader.


    :happy:

    Since there is no Target near me (the closest being over two hours away), I have very little chance to get Target exclusives. I did manage to get my B-Wing because I happened to be taking a trip up there and I got lucky.
    I have been looking for the Skiff and Y-Wing on Ebay, and I absolutely refuse to pay $50 plus shipping for the Skiff and anywhere from $50 - $75 for the Y-Wing.
    I too am puzzled as to why they don't put these on the Fan Club. I mean, they released exclusive figures on the Fan Club: Oola, B'Omar Monk and the Cantina Band Member. And I'm pretty sure that those sold rather well. Wouldn't the same logic apply to the vehicles?
    It could possibly give everyone a fair shot. Because if you don't have Internet access, you can always call them.
    What about it Hasbro?

    Here's my story on the Target Exclusives I wanted:

    Skiff - Never saw it in the store. I bought one off of ebay for $50 but that included a Slave-I, a GC Boba Fett and shipping.

    Y-Wing - Thank goodness I kept my vintage one and timelyness. I called a Target store and they had one left. I broke some traffic laws that day.

    B-Wing - I bought one for retail. They actually asked me how many I wanted...Weird!!! Then a few months later I find them on clearance and got one for $10. I wish I had waited. This was by far the easiest to find.
    Shop Smart! Shop S-Mart!

    Well, I was LUCKY enough to find a few EXTRA TIE Interceptors to trade.

    1 for a Y-Wing
    1 for a B-Wing

    As for the Skiff, sadly, I am still missing this from my collection.
    May the force be with you.

    This is along the lines of something I posted before. I really think Hasbro should throw us a bone and give us a second shot at some of the harder to find stuff. Items that, in my opinion, Hasbro could stand to make a lot more money off of still. Even if they are slight re-decos in the new packaging. Not only the Y-Wing and Skiff, but also Han/ Taun Taun Beast pack, Series 2 (or was it 3) of the Ep. 1 accessory packs, Commtech Trooper (they can even leave the Commtech Chip out this time and just make this great figure more widely available. Figures like this should be made in such high quantities that they become Pegwarmers, in my opinion.), etc..

    Well, RooJay...The Star Wars Fan Club will have an army builder 4-pack of the Commtech Imperial Stormtroopers later this year. 2 of them come with the POTF2 Imperial Blasters, and the other 2 come with the Long Rifle that the original carded figure was packed with. Hopefully the set is widely sucessful, and will lead to more army builder sets in the future. CloneTroopers, SandTroopers, Biker Scouts, and Rebel Fleet Troopers would be a good start.

    In a perfect world, it would be nice if everyone got what they wanted, wouldn't it?

    Hasbro doesn't want pegwarmers, they want stuff to sell. For every one Ketwol you see on the shelves, that's one Bo Shek that Target isn't ordering. Target managers don't care either, one figure is as good as another, from their point of view.

    As for the exclusives, well, that sucks that people didn't get them. But as for CT stormtroopers, not only are they releasing a "troop builder pack," but the fact that some people have hundreds, means that they were out there.

    In Hasbro's point of view though, the stuff sold. And it would be more trouble to go through the trouble to put the toys back into the mold, and into production, then make new packaging, etc. then its worth, IMO.

    (sigh) I finally broke down and got a Skiff for $35 and a Y-Wing for $50. I still have my Target rain check for two $14.99 Skiffs.

    Damn you Target.

    NO! ...really?!

    LOL! JarJarBinks, that reminds me of some of the stories posted in the "Dealing with the uninformed" thread posted elsewhere in these forums. Thanks for explaining to me what you thought I didn't already know, but what I was trying to say was that these figures should be released carded (or boxed in a troop builder set) back onto the mass market so everyone, fanclub member or not, has a second shot at them.

    ...and we should hope that the fanclub exclusive troop builder set becomes common practice!
