Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I would hope so. The Vintage line (including everything from its inception way back when the Original Trilogy Collection hit) is perhaps the single greatest thing that Hasbro has ever done with Star Wars. Seriously, I mean that.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

When was "Attack of the Clones 3D" confirmed? Also cooleddie74 the Yoda image seems to be bad? It didn't load for me.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

It seems to be working fine for me and OdoWan. Try again. There shouldn't be anything wrong with the image.

ETA: Here it is again just in case...

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Okay yep. It works fine...logo looks decent. I guess we'll probably get General Grevious for the Episode III image the way things have gone? I think I want Obi-Wan's Starfighter.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

My guess is that Episode III's logo will be something like Grievous or a split image of Anakin morphing into Darth Vader. That is if Hasbro continues the current packaging design theme into 2014.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I do just want to say that despite all the distribution woes, this year has given me my perfect 3 3/4 inch Vader, and for that I am grateful. It's also given me the "awesome figure I never knew I desperately needed" in the form of Malgus. The more I look at him the more I love him. What the heck is up with that cloak, though? There's just no saving that thing. Thankfully I can't ever see myself wanting to use that look for him, so I'm not too broken up.

Wait until you get your hands on Starkiller from the Tarkin wave! He's not a Sith per se, but he's incredible.

I don't know why it is, but the Sith figures tend to be some of the most freaking awesome in the whole line.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Next year we should be getting a pretty amazing update of Count Dooku. We've gotten just one new Dooku sculpt in the last four years and that was in those disappointing Target-exclusive Geonosis Arena 2-packs. Collectors need a definitive Dooku/Darth Tyranus after all these years.

I thought that both the Episode 3 and Evolutions versions of Dooku were pretty darn good.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Oh, I agree that they're both great. The best so far! But since we never got a definitive version of Dooku in the 2010-12 Vintage Collection line(which still mystifies me...what was Hasbro thinking not making one?) I'd love to see a really awesome update that tops even those two figures.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Dooku seems to get forgotten a lot. He's easily the biggest name character still missing from Sideshow's Star Wars line, too.

As far as Star Wars figures go, I'm strictly OT and EU these days. I've finally gotten over the prequels and realized just how little I like them. Oh, I'm still keeping all of my cool PT figures, but I really don't see myself buying any more.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Actually, Sideshow has done a Count Dooku as one of its Premium Format Figures. He's pretty awesome!

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I'm talking about their 1/6 scale figures. I know about the PF. That's a large scale statue line, though.

Ah, okay. Just wanted to provide that link in case you were unaware of that Dooku figure. He's pretty awesome.
