I can't believe we are getting over 30 figures!
Episode One went down like this:
Gasgano / Pit Droid
That's 18 basic and 3 Deluxe.
Compare with Episode 2:
Jango Fett (RH)
Tusken Female / Child
And now there's rumors of Clone Trooper Seargeant (red), Zam Wessel, Yoda, Dooku etc. all being out.
Well, let's not count the rumors but we still have 4 deluxe:
That's 26 figures already, plus we know of pilot Obi-Wan, pilot Padme, Palpatine, Orm Fre Taa, and more still coming!
What do you think is going to happen with sales of Star Wars?
Will there be more people collecting it for this movie?
What do you think stores will continuously stock and how easy or hard to you think it will be to get all these figures around maybe the end of May, early June - after the big promo, and the movie's been out?
Think new people will collect them? It will stay hotter than E1?
Or do you think the stores will have tons of Anakin Peasant and Padme Aerobicize, and little else?
Will stores order (or get sent) tons of Typho's case, only to have it sit while everyone's waiting for more Geonosians?
This is the biggest toy promotion ever! It tops Episode One by at least 5 figures, but it looks like the number might be more like 13 figures!
And originally, in 1977 there were no figures, and ANH got only 12 by about 9 months after the movie had been out.
ESB debuted with 11 figures in 1980 (as the first wave) if you count the Sneak Peek Fett.
ROTJ came out with 17 in 1983 (start of that year's promotion anyway).
As to the fact that all this E2 stuff will be out there - well I already have almost all of it. So it's going to ship!
Is this crazy or what?
