EP3 DVD Comm Figure Packs
« on: October 23, 2005, 07:26:12 PM »
Does anyone have any info on if the sith and the jedi packs are just repacks or are they resculpts or repaints?  Looking to pick up 2 of each unless they are all repacks.

I was able to see all 3 today at wal-mart...they were well hidden on the back aisle near the bike rack??? They had several of the Jedi and Sith but only 1 of the clone troopers. Thats the only 1 I bought, looks like they are the same as the Clone trooper 3 pack from the AOTC but with the new Helmets and a new paint scheme...very cool looking. The sith look like all repacks, so I passed. The Jedi do look different. Obi Wan has a different look as does Anakin, his arm is in an upraised fist pose. Mace looked to me as a repack. They rang up $9.95 so not a bad deal.

I purchased them a few days ago at Wal-Mart in Tucson, AZ for 9.96$! But I thought that they were not supposed to be out until Nov. 1st. :stupid:
YAHOOOOO! You're all clear, kid. Now let's blow this thing and go home.

I like the packaging for these figures. But I wonder---What is the difference between these figures and the individual ones we have been purchasing since April?
If their is no basic difference why do I want to buy more of what I already have?
Also, when did Darth start using a mauve colored lightsaber blade?

I read some where today that these are all straight repacks from the last few years....although the Clone 3 pack does look nice in person.

I went to one of the close stores today and saw none around so I went to the nearest employee and inquired about these 3 packs. It was like looking at a cow, they just were speechless! So I found another employee who told me they were holding out till nov. 1st. Well after some talking to him and bugging him he let me take my pick. I picked up just one and that was the anakin/obiwan/mace. I wasn't too big on the other two especially the sith since they are just crappy repeats of figs I already have (damn hasbro). I also was able to score an early copy of ep 3 which I might add would have been hard to do but since this wallmart has self check out I was able to get away with it. At least that's what the employee said. So good on ya Steve!

I saw these this morning on my hunting trip. I had them all in my hands and noticed that the Clone trooper package was messed up so I put them all back. I wasn't really impressed with these once I saw them. They have no background and all of them look like repackaged figs except for the clones anyways. I will probably pick them up later on when I can get a better set I do have to OT set so this would be a good compliment to that for the display.

I was right. These are just repeats of what I have purchased as individual figures.
Hasblo needs to get their collective heads out of their Dewback poopers and realize what the public really wants.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Except I would have used a few choice words. lol
