2010’s Wave 2 Cinema Scenes Found at Target!

To my surprise, I came across a report on the Rebelscum forums that Jango’s Slave I (Escape from Kamino) and Anakin’s ROTS Starfighter (Attack on the Invisible Hand) have been spotted at Target.  I guess Hasbro wasn’t kidding at Toy Fair when they said these would be “on shelf soon” (see pics in my earlier post).  Let the hunt continue!

Toy Fair: Cinema Scenes

In terms of revealing new Cinema Scenes, Toy Fair did not show us anything brand spanking new.  It’s great to see confirmation of Wave 2, which includes Anakin’s ROTS Jedi Starfighter and Jango Fett’s Slave I, though these sets were originally discovered back at the end of November.  This wave will see stores very soon.  Check out Rebelscum’s gallery for some nice loose shots, starting on image 32.

The most disappointing news of Toy Fair is that Cinema Scenes are coming to an end!  This blogger believes that surely Hasbro knows there are more vehicles that need to be released.  Even though the Cinema Scene format is ending, hopefully vehicles will still see release in the future, perhaps as individual ships rather than including figures.  I’ll be scrutinizing sites for info about this…

Photo Guide: Slave I

I think it’s safe to say that the set I’ve been most excited to get my hands on is Boba Fett’s Slave I, so with it finally in hand, it will make a great start for my Photo Guide.

The Slave I Cinema Scene was released in late 2009 and includes 3 pieces:  Boba Fett,  Han in Carbonite, and of course the Slave I itself.  Boba Fett is the ESB version, meaning he has green gauntlets, but he is a resculpt from the previously released version.  Han is also a new version — the carbonite block is only 1/4″ thick compared to the older 1/2″ thick one.  Fett sits nicely in the cockpit and can be held in place with the footpeg. When the wings are rotated, the seat rotates as well, and as long as Fett’s blaster is tucked in, there’s no problem performing the rotation.  Han in Carbonite actually slips in through the bottom of the ship and it’s a pretty tight fit.  I found that sliding him in head first prevented him from getting jammed in there and he was still reasonably removable.  The other bit of articulation on the Slave I is the guns — they’ll also rotate depending on which way you want the ship facing.

If you open the packaging carefully, you’ll get a background of Cloud City for display.  It should even last a little while for kids to enjoy it for play purposes, though of course the cardboard will have a fairly limited life.

Overall, I have to say it’s a fantastic set.

Quick summary of included pieces:

  • Boba Fett – ESB (green gauntlets), bent arm – new sculpt
  • Han in Carbonite – 1/4″ thick – new sculpt
  • Slave I
