    Single-packed Galactic Heroes?

    http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?t=34687

    Hmmm....

    On the one hand, if they do this right, it could be a way to army-build or to get figures that were only offered with other previously-released figures (eg, the Shadow Stormtrooper or Mace's Clonetrooper from those massive sets).

    The first three: Battle Droid, Clonetrooper, Bossk.

    Bossk?

    Okay, seriously. Who in Rhode Island is sleeping with Bossk? There is some insane lizard loving going on there.

    The Battle Droid and Clonetrooper I can see. But that Bossk, well, he's not an army builder, and he was released with a new, unique figure before. He's going to pegwarm worse than that Titanium Bossk.

    I fear this decision could spell the beginning of the end for our beloved Galactic Heroes. And we still don't have a Qui-Gon.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I think the problem is that this:

    I don't really see any specific GH set peg warming. I think usually between the two figures kids usually want at least one of the figures enough to buy the set. And the two pack has built in play value.

    I worry these one packs will peg warm as kids isolate a figure they don't want so you just see figure after figure of the same set not selling.

    Lando might have peg warmed, but not when packed in with Bespin Luke. Dengar might not have sold too well, but pack him in with Boba Fett...

    I think this is a mistake.

    Galactic Hero single packs?(merged)

    Other than for army building a few troopers, is this really necessary?

    Troopers / Droids could have been done in the army building 2-pack format.

    I started a thread about this in the "Other SW section." It probably happened simultaneously with this thread.

    My point echo'd everyone else's (Chux and Droid's). But in so much as army building, why not release Clone / Droid 2-packs some more, or make Clone / Clone and Droid / Droid 2-packs? That would take care of that.

    I see Hasbro is still getting my "Bossk-fund" donations.

    Maybe they'll at least give him a better paint job.

    I think this could be a great idea.
    If they pack popular characters, then I'm all for it.
    I'd like a Leia and Obi-Wan, but have held off because I really don't want to get another Darth Vader/whomever.

    This is dumb IMO. They need to concentrate more on the vehicles and ships!!

    I thought I'd read somewhere that the single-packs would be sold at discount outlets instead of their regular retailers. (Factory 2 You, Dollar Tree Stores, etc.) So it may not be as interfering as we thought.

    Yeah, Big Lots & such get the single packs, but it's kind of a waste of efforts when new vehicles would give this line a real shot in the arm - Hasbro doesn't see it that way because the X-wing and Falcon tanked, but those 2 were timed wrong and marketed wrong and they weren't new to the core audience.
