    I forgot a few things, but mostly deliberately. A-wings and Y-wings might be too obscure. Ackbar would fly the B-wing though.

    Because of the shrunk, funky scale, I think the capital ships like a Star Destroyer the size of the current Playskool Falcon would be fine as well as pretty cute.

    This is a great collection. I love how you can't possibly lose any of the pieces and it easily carries with you for play anywhere!

    Re: Galactic Heroes' Future

    I love these toys, but the current ones are too expensive, IMO.
    I've only seen them once under $6 and that was for $5 at TRU of all places.

    Re: Galactic Heroes' Future

    Price is an issue:


    $6????

    Two poseable figures:

    Darth Vader (lightsaber moves)
    Obi-Wan Kenobi



    One poseable figure, one not:

    Luke (lightsaber moves)
    R2D2

    Chewbacca (arms move)
    C-3PO

    Anakin
    Padme

    Obi-Wan
    Jango Fett


    NO poseable figures:

    Han (Bespin)
    Leia

    Yoda
    Clone Trooper



    $6 gets you 2 super-articulated GI Joe figures with accessories.

    $6 gets you 1 super-articulated Star Wars basic figure with accessories.


    What is up with the Galactic Heroes' pricing.


    They would be worth $2.99 - 3.99 for two (or $1.50 abouts or less per each of them). Aside from licensing, aren't these about what you could get out of a gumball machine with a parachute or something?

    Re: Galactic Heroes' Future

    They're $5 at my TRUs, WMs, and Targets.

    This new 4th wave looks nifty, with Luke definitely leading the way for me. I also would like to see more ships in this line, the X-wing from the previous incarnation is extremely lonely with no TIEs to chase.

    I love the line, but it seems to be hovering around nowheresville even though all my local stores are sold out of them or running low a lot of the time. I hope Hasbro keeps it alive to do more fun stuff with it, it's the ONLY line with a Millennium Falcon that has the cockpit accessable from the aft compartment.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Re: Galactic Heroes' Future

    I love the line, but I think they should avoid running it into the ground, or making every possible character. They should stick with iconic characters where possible.

    I think some must haves are:

    TIE Fighter with Pilot
    Jar Jar Binks
    Qui-Gon Jinn
    Count Dooku
    Emperor Palpatine
    Jabba the Hutt (wouldn't that be adoreable)

    Some really good ideas, though less necessary:

    Landspeeder
    Slave I with Han in Carbonite
    Greedo
    Cantina Band Member
    Lando in Empire outfit
    An old Empire/Jedi Yoda with cane (rather than lightsaber)
    Bib Fortuna
    Episode I Queen Amidala (white face makeup)
    Bespin Leia
    Bespin Luke
    Dewback
    Bantha

    Would be cute:
    the Max Rebo Band
    Salacious Crumb
    I'd like to see a Galactic Heroes Hammerhead and Hem Dazon
    Admiral Ackbar

    Tycho, I think you have listed a few too many ideas. I don't think it is feasible to redo the entire line in Galactic Hero form. Kids aren't going to want Captain Piett or Tarkin! We were lucky to get them in the regular line! And some of what you listed (Cloud Car, Sail Barge) hasn't even been made in the regular line! (I know Hem Dazon hasn't either, but you know how I feel about that).

    I think the pricing is very reasonable.

    Re: Galactic Heroes' Future

    I have seen these for five bucks a pack of figures. I passed on some of them and bought some of them. I saw the Falcon today at Target for about 30 beans. Comes with three figures, but I will pass on that too.

    It only comes with 3 figures now?
    I'm assuming Han and Chewie are still there, Who's the 3rd and who'd they take out?

    I want everyone to be made in this scale. But mostly Kit Fisto and 2-1B!

    The Stormtrooper was the 4th, and you can still get a ton of these at KB Toys (at least mine here and possibly KB online). This is the blue Playskool Millennium Falcon.

    The black boxed Galactic Heroes OTC Falcon takes out the Stormtrooper so Hasbro can sell the forth-coming Stormtrooper 2-pack for $5-6 in some soon-shipping assortment.

    The appeal of this line was defined in another thread I recall from the past:

    1) cute
    2) child-suitable before you have to give up YOUR OWN 3 3/4 collection to your kids
    3) no parts to lose - everything's attached
    4) no super-articulation that makes you go: I've got him posed so cool I won't move him
    5. cute scrunchy ships, with cockpit access from the hold of the Falcon
    6. small collection, easily storable - and you'd throw them all in a sandwhich bag without "mistreating" valuable collector figures like the POTF2 Cantina Band Member or something.

    7. did I mention they were "cute?"

    Re: Galactic Heroes' Future

    Yep, these are some of my favorite Star Wars toys right now. I would love to see a Tie Fighter and a Slave I in the line. Lets get some evil vehicles out there!! These Galactic Heroes toys are just a good idea, I don't know why but they are.
