Although it would be cool if they came out with minifigure packs like the ones in 2000, it's not going to happen as it would be infringing on Hasbro's Star Wars action figure license.

However, collectors would go berserk if all of them were different. I am a collector and I like one set to include certain figs. I just wouldn't like it that way. However, you could use, say, in one BP, one Twi'lek, one rodian, one Torgruta, and maybe a couple of others.

~Sam (Teekay)


I'm not so sure about that. While it would perhaps affect the secondary market on MISB sets, it could create a secondary market for specific minifigs if there were new minifigs created. If different minifigs had different levels of rarity, I think that it would spur sales of this particular item. And I see how it could be construed as to be infringing upon Hasbro's liscence, but I don't think that it really does. If you're going to be an action figure collector, you're going to buy them regardless of if Lego makes a "congruous" offering in their own style, and vice-versa. And by collector, I don't just mean people like us on these types of sites, but the kids that probably make up 90% of both of these companies' consumers. Really, Lego minifigs and Hasbro action figures fill two very different holes.

I very well may have. My brain is so homework / job addled at this very moment that my post was more rant than discussion and I'm not sure exactly where I was going with it. Forgive me? XD

Haha, for sure. I can totally relate. Honors classes in your first year of high school = no break ever. Especially if you're aiming for the truly nerdy "Straight-A's" path.

[quote="yankeeken"]@ darth jason
I like your idea, as I love getting Astro droids in new colors, but I don't see it happening. The whole point of a battlepacks are to build an army and who, besides Don, would actually want an army of repair droids?[/quote

Whats an army without support troops? A dead army thats what. Anywho.. I understand what your getting at and thats why in my quote I suggested you change the name of the battle pack. But IMO, as well as Napolean's and Von Clauwitz, support troops are not just part of an army but one of its most important components.

I like the idea of getting Kit fisto's delta fighter that would be cool he's got a pretty slick looking ship.

The idea of doing the Clone wars version of tantive IV is an awesome idea.
I hope TLG is paying attention. thats lets see 4 variations out of one set, the republic cruiser(Radiant VII,Republic frigate, and Tantive IV clone wars & ANH "Blockade runner". Thats alot of mileage out of the basic design.

How about Ziro the Hutt's Catering truck?? Comes w/black light,an antacid and an I heart George Lucas bumper sticker.

A new, updated Jabba's palace. We all remember the horrible old one. Well, it's time to renovate! Comes with Luke, Leia, Han(in and out of carbonite), Jabba. Crumb, Dancer, Gammoreans x2, Boba, and Bib Fortuna. Huge playset.

This is a really good idea. I would even like a sail barge since i got into collecting lego's when this set went into oblivion.
But think you can get alot of milage out of a new palace, some new alien some old ones set it up along the lines of the new playsets and i think you got something good.

Yes, but you must remember that LEGO is a child's toy and therefore most of the sets are made for children (why else do you think ever new set has to have flick fire missiles). And the truth is that most kids are only interested in recreating battles and therefore would have little interest in a battlepack of repair droids.

Yankeeken,

I think you're missing the point. Again as I stated at the begining of my original post, you dont need to call it a battle pack if you dont want to. I was using the term "battle pack" for descriptive purpose, purley as an example of TLG's practice of creating part, charactor or job specific Mini figures and throwing them together in themed packaging. I was speaking purely in colloquial terms consistant with this posting. You know kinda like the bounty hunter "set" you suggested earlier on in the discussion.

Re: Kids toys and support troops, it worked for the G.I.Joe line for decades. The line of smaller figures has run from 82 (ballparking, may have been 81 or 83) to present. There were roughly 3 years where they did not make any G.I.Joe figures. In that run, for Cobra at least (I always preferred their soldiers because I like big armies, not an army of specialists), they produced tons of support troops and non frontline troops. They had a variety of pilots, naval operators, naval troops, robots, ninjas, telecommunication officers, soldiers to repair their assorted exotic technologies, soldiers for every environment, doctors, scientists (well, a scientist who preferred to go shirtless and wear a monicle), guards, etc. They had it all and they were a kids line. It was one of the strengths of the line that by the late 80s you could have figures to fill most of the major roles an army has.

As for LEGO Star Wars, some of these soldiers exist in the movies. The Empire has Death Star Gunners, technicians, etc that could be made. The rebels were a little more bare bones but they had support personel as well. The Republic has the guys flying the firefighter ships in RotS for example. The CIS surely has support machines as well. These would sell, if used right. While I would love an Imperial Support troops pack with 2 technicians (and scanner), a Death Star Gunner, and maybe a black uniformed officer (or another Death Star Gunner or a black 3PO style droid). I would buy 10+ of those over time. But, it might be more realistic if they were limited and either sold just on S@H or as an exclusive somewhere. My point is though, these figures would sell if they were put into the right product. Maybe that product would be better if it were a larger battle pack or a chunk of the Death Star.

As for what else I would want to see in 2010 (some realistic, some there is no way):

Battle packs(I'll assume each of these has some small vehicle or something):
Endor, Imperial-2 Scout Troopers, 1 Stormtrooper, 1 Naval Trooper
Endor, Rebel-3 commandos, 1 commando commander or 1 Ewok

Imperial Drivers-1 At-At driver, 1 At-St driver, 2 TIE pilots, possibly something else instead of the second TIE pilot
Rebel Pilots- Some assortment of X, Y, A, and B wing pilots. Possibly one of each.

CIS 1-3 Geonosians, 1 Super Battle Droid, 2 Regular Battle Droids (sand colored)
CIS 2-2 Destroyer Droids, 3 Super Battle Droids with weapon arms, 1 Regular Battle Droid (possibly an officer or pilot)
Clones, EPIII style-2 501st clones, 1 clone scout, 1 green highlight clone (not sure what the unit is)
Clones, CW style-2 space troopers, 1 aquatic trooper, 1 heavy gunner with gatling gun

Fringe-2 Weequay pirates, 1 Quarren (obviously needs a new head mold), 1 Rodian
Droids-2 3PO style droids (1 Black, 1 Red), 2 R2 style droids in colors we haven't seen yet, a few droids like from the Sandcrawler

KotoR, Sith-3 Sith Troopers, 1 Commander or one generic Sith
KotoR, Old Republic, 3 Reuplbic Troopers, 1 Commander or 1 random Jedi

Sets:
TIE Defender
TIE Advanced (not Vaders, the one actually caller the TIE Advanced that looks kind of like an Interceptor)
TIE Phantom
Remakes of TIE Interceptor and Bomber (the main is honestly because I don't have these two)
Imperial Missile Boat (I was a big fan of the TIE Fighter and XWing games and I would like to see some of the ships made)

Z-95 Headhunter

New Jabba's Palace centered sets (the audience chamber, the skiffs, the sarlacc pit, etc).

Droid Factory-Like the one on Geonosis, lots of droid parts and completed droids, assembly line set ups. If it doesn't include the necesary parts, possibly it could have instructions to incorporate motorized parts to make it all work.

A new Imperial Shuttle closer to scale (or at least large enough to actually have the front ramp under the chin)-the figures could be Imperial or the Rebels who went to Endor.

Mustafar command bunker-the war room and conference room mainly, it should include Anakin, Nute Gunray, Rune Haako, Wat Tambor, Poggle the Lesser, Niemodian Soldiers, Battle Droids, R2-D2, maybe mouse droids. Destroyer droids if you want to include the deleted/unfilmed stuff. If they want to include more, it could also include 3PO, Padme, and Obi Wan and part of the landing pad for their lightsaber battle. If they want to go all out, they could include Palpatine, a few Shock Troopers, a burnt-to-a-crisp Anakin, and a lava side part for that battle. Or this could be broken up into three sets that all combine.

Starforge- the final area from KotoR, it would include Darth Malak, Light and Dark versions of Revan, Bastilla (dark side), a couple of Sith Troopers, 1 Sith War Droid, 2 random Jedi to fill the tubes powering the place, 1 random Sith apprentice wannabe. This would mainly just be the roundish chamber with a couple of tubes for the Jedi and area for Revan and Malak to fight it out.

Ebon Hawk-In short, I would try to put figures for every character ever seen on this ship in this set in case there are no other KotoR sets. If there are, we could probably keep it at Revan, Jolee, HK-47, T3, and Bastilla. If they KotoR II occupents, I would go with the Exile, Kreia, Boa-Dur, Visas, and HK-47.

Basilisk War Droid-Canderous and 1 or 2 Mandalorian commandos.

Clone Wars-Some kind of Republic base, clones would be the obvious figures, maybe a uniformed officer or two.

Jedi Temple Assault-possibly need to break down into multiple sets. The main open area, with a few 501st clones, Anakin, 1 or 2 random Jedi. The Entrance, a few 501st clones, Obi Wan, and Yoda. Outer landing pad, a few 501st clones, Bail Organa and his speeder, that young Jedi (it was Lucas' son, but I can't think of his name).

A new Cantina-larger than the first, it would need Wuher (the bartender), Han, Chewie, Luke, Obi Wan, Ponda Baba, Dr Evazan, some Bith musicians, Greedo, a sandtrooper or two, a Jawa or two, and one or two other random aliens like the Talz.

Tattoine Deluxe battle packs-a Ronto with 3 or 4 Jawas and a droid of some type (maybe a gonk droid)
-A dewback, crashed escape pod, 3 or 4 Sandtroopers.

Hoth Cave-Luke, Han, a Wampa, 2 Taun-Tauns, maybe throw in Chewie and the probe droid to cover more Hoth scenes

Figures I would like to see, but not sure what sets would be best to see them in (maybe magnets?)
Groups that should be together-1, Kir Kanos, Carnor Jax, blackhole stormtroopers
2, Darth Sion, Darth Nihilus, Visas, sith troopers
3, Prince Xixor, Guri (maybe in his ship)
4, Lord Shadowspawn, Kar Vastor, Pilot Luke, blackhole stormtroopers

KotoR-Darth Treya, HK-50 droids, Mandalorians

Other EU-Grand Admiral Thrawn (and any other Chiss for that matter, like Sevrace Tann), the Vong, Lumiya, the Noghri, Darth Bane, Darth Krayt (and several of his Sith), Cade Skywalker, Vergere

Movies-More aliens, more fringe types like the pirates and bounty hunters.

Actual magnet set ideas
1-Lando, Lobot, Bespin Security Guard
2-Gammorean Guard (presumably with more detailed paint like the new Ewoks), Bib Fortuna, Lando in disguise
3-At-At Driver, Snowtrooper, Rebel Snowtrooper (or possibly a commander)
4-Shadowguard, Blackhole Trooper, the Apprentice
5-Jango Fett, Geonosian, Younger Boba Fett
6-Asajj Ventress, Nute Gunray, Senate Commando
7-Jawa, Tusken Raider, Weequay Pirate
8-(won't ever happen) Admiral Ackbar, Mon Mothma, General Madine

I think I understand what you mean, I was only referring to it as a "battlepack", as it was the simplest thing to call it for the purpose of my post. Personally I love the idea of an Astro droid, or any other character type, pack. I was just saying that it seems, unlikely as most non-collectors* would be uninterested in a set of non-fighting characters (Astro Droids, Protocol Droids, etc.). Such a possibly lack of interest, would lead to decreased revenues, which would in turn make such a set unappealing to TLG.

*By non collectors, I mainly mean little kids and other people that buy LEGO sets for the sole purpose of recreate battles.

I forgot to add my Padme set request to this list, i know there is a thread dedicated specifically for the "10th anniversery w/out padme mini" but its still on my wish list. Any set w/Padme would be cool. I really like the idea of some chrome legos but im not holding my breath, figuring that lego would use grey or blue bricks to give that "chrome" feel. I had thought earlier since they recoloured the lightsaber hilts into a flat silver they may apply that colour as a substitute for chrome and give us something shiney and Nubian. Without going into crazy detail i think they could get away with a clone wars set. They could make her "Nubian space yacht" to keep the set small, maybe give us a C-3PO and a new Jar Jar Binks(Optional very optional, I'd rather get a Ziro the hut mini). I think all the other Vessels she's associated with would not be very easy to reproduce. They could do it as a limited edition to keep the numbers low if thats something necessary.

Touching on some other earlier Battle pack requests. I think we need to expand the scope of the Galactic empire. I would like to see a cheap set w/some imperial Army/Navy troopers. That should be good for a battle pack, since I dont think the Death star is in the cards for me any time soon and im not totally sure ill get the endor set either. I figure since these dudes make up the bulk of the imperial armed forces we should at least have more then 1 or 2 around. maybee some kind of small artillary piece(like a mortar or a pak howitzer) or another speeder bike(well that may work good that way they could throw in a new biker scout too). It would expand the playability of the endor set.

3 I reeeeeeeeeeally want to see:

Geonosis Arena Battle

Jabba's Palace with rancor pit. And a rancor, obviously.

Jedi Temple Assault

All of these are very self-explanatory. It's hard to imagine all these sets being made with specific prices, figs, and piece counts. I prefer to suggest a set idea, let Lego go from there (assuming they do...) and buy if/when it comes out.
