Star Wars Fighter Pods
Posted 30 December 2011 - 04:52 PM
These could be pretty addicting thanks to their cuteness but I have a pretty low tolerance for blind packaging. My daughter's into Star Wars (she bought into Galactic Heroes big time) and also spent a year collecting Gomu erasers. I think she's on the fence about Fighter Pods but that may change once she sees them at retail.
As for me... my wallet's thanking the maker these aren't Minimates.

Galactic heroes/Super hero squad etc have been replaced by the superior hasbro/playskool "heroes" line

As for the demise of Galactic Heroes, I think they wanted figures that had more articulation and therefore more play value. Costs have been going up and I'm sure key retailers have been pushing for added value given the price increases.

No no... I'm fine without these.

Apparently a good chunk of the "exclusive" figures are offered in the blind bags but I noticed some come with the vehicle sets. Personally I'd rather have the vehicles than a bunch of super-deformed Princess Leia figures. Actually I'd rather avoid the blind packaging altogether but that might not be an option without resorting to *gasp!* trading.
Anyone else giving these micro-Galactic Heroes a try?

Did the bag come with the checklist of figures? That lists which ones are "exclusive" though I'm a little confused as to what that means. I thought it meant exclusive to the blind bags since the text says something about including an exclusive figure but some exclusives are pictures with vehicles sets. For example, the 4-pack I bought included Chewie and Cody, though it might not be the same Chewie.

What was wrong with Galatic heroes?
On a sidenote, there were a TON of Galactic Heroes taking up an entire endcap at TRU last weekend as if they were the latest thing. WTF?!

The blind exclusives are killing my interest in this line but my daughter – who collected Gomu erasers – loves them. She can spend her money on them and I'll collect vicariously through her.

I want a Boba Fett. That's about it.
Coud there be a connection?
I couldn't help noticing that opened blind packaging bags are littering the shelves at Walmart and TRU.
