I need 20 AT-TE Gunners! I really like the look of all of the new product, no ANH Han Solo yet to be found!

 ^^^ Way to go Spice, you just cursed us !!! ;) I bet we see ANH Solo sometime before 2006 is over..... ;)

Let's just hope they don't stick Han Solo in the background for half a second just so they can make another action figure.


Who made that collection of ROTS pics anyway?  He/She/They did a wonderful job.

The photos were emailed to us by an anonymous source, the presentation and pagework was done by dustrho. We're glad everyone has had a great response and the most negative thing being said by collectors is bye bye income tax returns!

Speaking of ROTS figures I have a very bad feeling that Toys-R-Us will not be the place to purchase them come April. Today to my horrid surprise at one of my local TRU's I saw two whole pallets of Sneak Preview Figures. They were stacked about 4.5 feet up. That is many, many, many ROTS Preview Figures. I looked at the boxes just to make sure none were the regular figures. All were Sneak Preview figures unless regualr figures were stashed in the the cube of boxes. My Toys-R-Us will be overstocked with Preview figures for years to come.

On a side note one of the TRU's in my area still have Episode 2 sneak preview figures and Bo'Shek.

I was reading the article on the fp linking to yahoo news about ROTS and ToyFair....the part that stands out in my mind is the "approx retail cost for basic figs $5.99"....so how come, Taget, TRU & Kmart are charging $7+ for them?  >:(

Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith Action Figures

(Approximate Retail Price: $5.99, Recommended Age: 4 & up)
New Star Wars action figures featuring the awesome heroes and villains from Episode III.

My local Fred Meyers is charging 7.99 for the animated figs, I would like to know how they expect to do well with prices like this. Kids do not have this kind of money, but yet that is their focus. ??? I recently read the news story about how Hasbro hopes ROTS  bails them out of financial trouble. Maybe the reason for that is the price thay charge, compared to G.I. Joe figures it's quite an increase.

That brings up a great point Shawn!  Hasbro has always stated that their main target audience are the children, but what child could seriously afford $7.99 for one stinking figure?  Especially one that has almost NO articulation?  In my 5+ years of hardcore collecting, I have only seen less than TEN kids looking at the Star Wars toys, and never I have I seen any kids ever walking away with them.

Why can't Hasbro just cut the bulls**t and be honest that their number one target audience truly is the collectors out there, and that it's NOT the damn children?!?   >:(

went to target here in chicago and they priced eack sneak peak fig for $6.99 a piece.


so i went to kmart and found a difreent price of the figs for $5.99.


but i did finally find a starfighter that got me into a little altercation with a guy. last one also. we both grabbed for it and he suckered punched me in the gut.


security came and tossed the dude out. funny thing is when security nabbed him he dropped the starfighter. so i told the guard the guy punched me and took the toy away from me.


so they gave me the anakin star fighter and i left.

You won't believe this, a Canada fan received a ROTS #33 Clone Commander fig when he complained to hasbro about a defective toy!

Ghost, I thought you were going for the Gungan figures and not the clones!   ;)  Just kidding buddy!

Glad that I'm not in Ghost's town because then it would be a race to see who bought all the clones......I'll be going that route as my collecting focus is shifting more towards army building...

I'm not one who usually collects vehicles because of space and all, but this might be the movie that changes that. After seeing pics of the new Starfighters and Republic Gunship Iím definitely going to get these. Hopefully they will make an AT-TE that I would definitely buy!

I'd like to say thanks to sandtroopers.com for posting the link to those Toy Fair picks. Man, does that Republic Gunship look cool or what? After I saw it in the ROTS trailer, I was hoping that it would be made into a toy. I wasn't planning to buy many toys from this movie, but I'll need to make an exception for that one. I bet Hasbro has some even better stuff planned to release later in the year for the Holiday shopping season. I guess we'll just need to wait and see.  :)

I don't think that is the Republic Gunship.It looks like the Clone fighter that is seen breifly in the first E3 trailer.I read on Rebelscum.com(I know how Spice feels about them)and someone in Georgia found the some of the Basic E3 figures at TRU.Amazing how some stores will put stuff out when they aren't suppse to.Our stores are so strict that they will have armed guards around the pallets of E3 merchindise before April 2nd.Ok,I am exaggerating but they will not put them out early.

Holy Freaking WOW! Hey I just want to inform everyone that I just made my weekly Sunday morning run. I stopped in at Wal-Mart as my last stop. I was looking at some board games to buy for a birhtday present. A guy opened the backroom door and brought out a pallet of home goods stuff.  :(  As the door was open I peaked in and on the second, third, and top shelf of the stock units are many STAR WARS boxes wrapped in plastic on pallets. I could clearly make out that it was Star Wars and you could see the red outlined box that has the warning date on it.  
As I was looking at the games I saw an employee and asked where is the Star Wars stuff? All that this Wal-Mart has is three Darth Vader Helmets and badic lightsabers. He said that they are not putting out any Star Wars stuff until Spring. I think he means April 2, 2005. So I asked him about the stuff in the backroom. He went back there and looked up at the stuff. He said sorry but they are marked not to be put out.
I know what Wal-Mart I will be visiting April 2.

I am still optimistic that somewhere in Indy a store will put out something from Revenge of the Sith. Other Wal-Marts and Targets in my area put up the Lightsabers with the DVD packed in them but not the ROTS sabers. I believe the DVD packed saber are marked April 2nd. I could be wrong on that.

Well keep your eyes open and start making plans for the April Hunt. I am getting really excited to spend a lot of money.

Oh! On my hunt today I did picked up the Unleashed Stormtrooper at Target. He is very small next to the other Unleahed in this series. Cool none the less.

Happy Hunting!

It's not about how I feel about them. They are a good source for Star Wars news and reference. There are many other aspects of the website and such that are just plain tasteless. I was shocked to see how little a surprise Toy Fair was. So we don't get a press kit? They will be released later this year, minus the fancy wrapper. I can't wait, April 2nd is gonna put some cramp on my wallet too!  ;D
