Star Wars Action Figures - Clone Wars

Updated Post on 20 August 2008, 26 August 2008, 1 September 2008, 10 December 2009


Star Wars - Clone Wars Action Figures
I am glad that I was able to get these Clone Wars Action Figures that has the "1st day of issue" sticker on it. The Star Wars logo on card is also printed in shiny metallic blue.
Although my feets are still a little painful from the walking around searching for these on 26 July 08...I still think it's worth it!
I started collecting Star Wars only from year 2006, like a delay timer and started when all the 6 epsiodes were finished...all the midnight events.... Gone!!!
These set of Action Figures will be very special to me because I've finally got something before the Movie's out...Got to go to a midnight launch, get the AF on the 1st day...etc.
As a Star Wars fan it's something like a adventure!

Commander Fox
Theme : Clone Wars
Year : 2008
It's a super nice Action figure but I don't see the need to have this Commander Fox figure to be in a clamshell and charging us collectors more money with it...
It's a action figure with the same Clone Wars card!!!

501st Clone Trooper

This figure is priced the same price as the Commander Fox (see above).
But worse!!! Don't even have a clamshell case!
I'm really very displeased with all the price hikes.
Anyway, I think I'll probably quit this Hasbro collecting hobby soon.
Prices are just getting more and more ridiculous here in Singapore.

Hello,
I too have collected all the new clone war action figures and my question is if I should concentrate on buying up the last of the 30th anniversary collection or just continue purchasing the new line, which in time will be worth more in your point of view?

Hi there!
Thanks for visiting!
As for your questions, this both Star Wars AF series each has it's own merits.
Take 30th Anniversary for example, some people tend to like it more when collectibles is released for 10th, 20th, 30th..etc. anniversary edition. But there's going to be a 40th, 50th... etc.
As for Clone Wars, this is the first series AF made specially for the coming Clone Wars Movie. Although there were some clone wars AF released previous on different cards but these are not made for movies.
AF for movie release are usually more popular with fans. But if I'm not wrong, more quantities of AF are produced too! Which might lead to a not so good price later.
So as you can see, all these have it's pros and cons and I too also don't know which will be more valueable in time!!!
But I would like to recommend that you buy something you like instead of buying something you don't like but think it might rise in it's price. Just in case when you want to get sell it but can't or realised that the price has dropped more than your buying price...then the item will be an eyesore!!!
Hope you have a happy collecting adventure! Cheers!
