    The Eopie Campaign (repost)

    Originally posted at the old forums: The Eopie Campaign

    Since no one else has started such a thread and since we don't have an official petition (as with the Micro Machines), I am using this forum to voice an empassioned plea to Hasbro. BRING BACK THE EOPIE (w/Qui-Gon Jinn)! There is no reason that it cannot be re-released under the Power of the Jedi logo. Just try finding one of these things. I have tried to bid on eBay and been consistantly outbid at $50.00! There is obviously a demand for the illusive last of the beast packs in THIS COUNTRY, why not meet that demand with product. Ulike the late 80's when Yak Face was relegated to a European only release due to lack of retailer demand for Star Wars figures (one report I heard was that Kenner offered figures for as little as a penny each and retailers would not buy, so most were melted down at the end of the production run), there is still a highly active demand for Star Wars today. Hasbro has made great improvements in recognizing this demand, but in the case of the Eopie Beast Pack (and indeed the counterpart Falumpaset), our needs are being ignored.
    So, please join with me in imploring Hasbro to re-release this much sought after set. Please use this thread as a kind of makeshift petition. My hope is for this thread to be not so much a forum for discussion as a place for as many fans as possible to sound off on a mutual desire to see the Eopie with Qui-Gon Jinn finally get a proper domestic release so we can complete our collections without being taken to the cleaners!
    What say you?!

    I'm all for this, I really want one and if Hasbro is really desparate to not put the SAME toy in the new packaging, then they can add a hyperdrive trailer with covered hyperdrive.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    I'm with you too. Hasbro, the busy after market can be a helpful guide in proving what demand is out there. People are going nuts over the later Episode I figures and now the Fan Club 4 figures. Those could retail at their initial price, and they'd still be hot. I know the same will go for the Eopie!

    Oh yeah, feel free to throw in a hyperdrive too!

    Oh man, if the hyperdrive was the same one from the hyperdrive repair kit accessory set that was so hard to find, that'd be so great. It could come with a cover instead of the tools!

    Amen to bringing pack the Eopie. He was ruined by the glut of Opee and Kaduus that still clog the shelves and its not right. At least give him to the fanclub as an exclusive so we can at least have a shot at him. I know that we keep asking for more and more and you always deliver. Do it again and give us a X-mas present. Speaking of the Kaduu....it should have come with the feathers attached to the saddle, and be able to stand without jamming the legs or supergluing them. Thanks.

    You know, if the shelves were clogged with those things, noone would be interested. Personally, I don't think they are all that great. I might pick it up, if it were on a good clearance price.

    You might have a point there QLD but that's just the way of the hobbie. I'd take one if it were available. Maybe they could put it out through the fan club? How about for free for 1,000,000 jedi points? I'll take 6.

    Most definitely I would get one.

    I am loathe to pay the exorbitant prices that scalpers and other websites want for these items.

    I think a reasonable price would be $15

    What do you think?

    On another note, how does everyone feel about the new forum?

    I love the Eopie and if it sat on shelves I would buy a load. Personally I think they should do something more creative like pack two in a box with the hyperdrive generator on a sled. Or pack two in a box with Padme and Anakin on one and Shmi and Kitster on the other. That would make it worth the money surely?

    Hey!

    Don't call this post shirley!

    Oh sorry, had a case of the Aiplane! blues
