    Would you believe that, by the time the upcoming Clone Wars figures are released, there will be over 700 Star Wars figures?

    This is counting all the loose vintage and modern 3-3/4 inch figures. I can't give an exact count, since so many are unconfirmed or still in the works. Not to mention, I count my figures a little differently than some (I count the Jabbas as figures, and I count the Treadwell Droid as a figure (after all, it has more articulation than the Spirits of the Jedi), plus all the two-packs are two figures).

    Anyway, I thought that was pretty impressive and worth sharing. It's also a little depressing. As of a month before AOTC, I was 7 figures away from a complete modern figure set. Now I'm over 126 figures away :rolleyes:

    What figure do you think they'll make for the 1000th figure anniversary celebration. Im predicting.........a Luke or a Kenobi. And instead of silver, they will be called platinum, where hasbro makes the figures look even more shiny and plasticcy than ever.

    You've got a point.......1000 is too good a number to pass up without commemorating. By that time, Episode three will have hit. I'm betting it'll be a Vader, or maybe a set of some sort. Something that reflects all six episodes, and nearly 30 years of figures.

    And to think, we're specualting about something that probably hasn't even occured to hasbro yet :p

    I'm hoping an R2-D2 and C-3PO 2-Pack made of pewter.

    After counting the 3& 3/4 (I ounted by packaging, so the Logray and Wicket 2-pack count as one) I calculated

    Vintage= 96
    POTF2= 110
    SOTE= 5
    EP1= 49
    POTJ= 56
    EP2= 114
    CW= 14

    Total= 444

    If you add Cinema Scenes and Screen Scenes you have

    POTF2= 10 Cinema Scenes(30 figures)
    EP1= 3 Cinema Scenes (9 figures)
    EP2= 4 Screen Scenes (12 figures)

    Total= 51 figures

    Add Deluxe figures(The number of figures that are in the pack) (Characters such as humans and droids, not beasts and things such as spider droids)

    POTF2= 7
    EP1= 3
    POTJ= 5
    EP2= 17
    CW= 2

    Total= 34

    Multipacks(all figures, not things (like above))(Not including Kay Bee packs, or builder sets)

    SOTE= 4
    POTJ= 2
    EP2= 12
    CW= 8

    Total= 26

    Exclusives(Same)

    POTF2= 11
    POTJ= 2
    EP2= 7

    Total= 20

    Droids figures

    Total= 13

    Ewoks figures

    Total= 6

    Ultra Deluxe Figures

    Total= 7

    Misscellaniuos

    6 Max Rebo figures
    7 millenium coin figures
    4 complete galaxies
    8 Princess Leia collection
    3 gunner stations
    2 figures with Millenium Falcon carriers
    6 25th Anniversary
    Total= 36

    Grand Total= 647!!!!!!!!!!

    If you do what Darth Skellington did and you added the other figures I probably forgot to count, you probably would end up with 750!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    R2 and 3PO in pewter....now that would be awesome at 3 3/4" scale.

    Even better...how about the action masters line reproduced in pewter at 3 3/4" scale.

    You'd never guess, but I've got a soft spot for pewter :D

    Nightwing New Recruit

    basic figures in pewter would also be very expensive

    probably, but if there's only a few made (like 6 figures or so) then I'd go for them.

    The current Rawcliffe line is probably a good guideline for a price on something like this. 3 3/4" scale pewter would probably be near enough double the price of the figures they do now. This is just a wild guess, but if they were selling for around $20-$25 a figure, I'd buy one or two.

    What about a Luke battling Vader ala ROTJ done in Pewter? that would be more to the point...final redemption sort of.....

    Yodaman, if you want a COMPLETE full list of all figures made ever, hang on for a week. The first round of Rancor Pit will be done by then, and all you have to do is add up all the matches and multiply by two (two figs per match). You'll see there are 740 figures confirmed to date, and that list was made before the confirmation of the animated style Target CW figs for next year.

    The Rawcliffe line of figures are very small.

    Plus, don't you want a figure that is actually an ACTION figure?
     
  14. Darth Boru

    Darth Boru Celtic Sith

    Admittedly the Rawcliffe stuff is quite small, but I was thinking of something extra special at 3 3/4" scale.

    Its just an idea, but it might be nice to have a very unique and different figure to mark the 1000th. Perhaps a 'cinema scene' type of thing with, say a central action figure of the Emperor, flanked by 2 or more same scale pewter imperial guards (or stormtroopers).

    Just something 'out of the ordinary' to mark the 1000th.

    Howbout a solid gold ewok with a burger king hat?

    God have we really spent that much on all those figures?..........:(
