    Uh, I thought that EP1 stuff sold like hotcakes...at first. The trouble was OVERPRODUCTION.

    BIGBARADA: you forgot to say "2-piece removable helmet with 12 points of articulation" HEHEHEHE I love Vader figures!

    As for Hasbro, well, eventually we will get alot of what we want. But like most have already stated, we will not be completly satisfied with what we get.
    May the force be with you.

    It seems memories are short in reference to the Ep1 buying bonanza that went on in the summer of 99. The real problem was that retailers ordered and Hasbro produced more toys than could have possibly sold even by the most optimistic estimates.

    The idea that since Ep1 one didn't change the world, alter time and speed up the harvest making it a failure, is a common one. Ep1 made $415 million in 4 months. It took Ep4 20 years to make $460 million and Titanic over one year to make $700 million. Ep1 only disappointed those with the most unrealistic of expectations; story faults and plot holes notwithstanding, I'm talking about financial expectations.

    My comment on collectors never agreeing can be proven with Hasbro's recent fan club exclusive. For months (years?) many of us have been asking for a multi-pack of army-builder troopers in a no-frills package. Hasbro plans to do just that and suddenly we get complaints as to how Hasbro is jipping us?

    Stillakid, you get four (4) Stormtroopers in a no frills white box, wrapped in little baggies. Two with long rifles and two with regular issue blasters. people are complaining becasue they aren't new sculpts (rather CT Stormie molds) the guns look flimsy, and they don't come in displayable packaging. I shoud say OTHER people are complaining...I think it's gonna be super sweet!

    Question

    Isn't the Stormtrooper pack a fan club exclusive? The fan club is only open people in the USA so if it is, I'll never get it. It'll go the way of my dream Corran Horn figure .

    Ah, How are things in the Emerald Isle then Darth Evil? Is collecting over there as bad as it is on the mainland? Do you have a TRUseless over there? How are prices? Do you weep copiously as I do when you hear of these fan club exclusives? Do you feel like committing murder when store exclusives are unveiled? Tell me for I am intrigued to hear what tales can be told from the land of lush pastures and lilting harp music and other Irish stereotypes.

    No seriously, I'd love to hear about the state of collecting in Ireland. It would help me to understand how bad hasbro UK really is. I have a cunning plan.............

    I'm not sure when the actual release date will be; but you can go to www.collectstarwars.com and look in the archived news for the story. They only posted it a week or two ago so it shouldn't be that far back.

    I wish Hasbro would learn what we(collectors) already Know.If they make it we'll buy it.Oh sure ,we'll gripe and complain about some and praise others,but we'll buy it.I think the Imperial shuttle will be made.The "tooling" I'm sure is still usable.Cheaper for them.Sandcrawler maybe.Sith Infiltraitor?I doubt it highly.To expensive to make for a small market.do I wish they would make one.It would be huge
    Bye to all.thanks for some good times.
