Star Wars Action Figures / Repair? 6 inch Boba Fett Arm
« on: January 4, 2014, 11:07 PM »
I got my 6 inch black series Boba Fett from Amazon last week and it was so cold that when I moved his stuck left arm it snapped off at the elbow (between the upper arm and ball joint).  The ball joint is still stuck.  I have superglue but thought I'd ask here if there was any advice as to how to fix these types of joints.


I move a lot and the plastic bits on my titanium ships (and Starship Battles mini ships) are bent badly.  What do you recommend as a fix to get them back in their proper shape?  I've heard hot (not quite boiling) water is one way. ???


Modern Trading / PABLO JILL hard to find?
« on: December 3, 2005, 06:51 AM »
My Kmart has about 20 of these "on sale" for $6 each.  Are they good trade bate or do people need them?  I HATE Ebay but I do need the Lars Homestead Padme and the "new" Bly with brown stripe on his helmet...2 or 3 actually since he is a clone.

Revenge of the Sith / ROTS Worst
« on: November 28, 2005, 01:19 PM »
So which are the best ROTS figures, accessories, action features, and which are the worst?

Here are my votes (not as easy as I thought it would be):
- Clone Commander (#33, and Bly)
- SA Clonetrooper (#41)
- R4-P17 (nice paint job and great sculpt)
- Count Dooku (Boring but VERY well done)

- Mass Ameda (Stupid tongue)
- General Grievous (Exploding Body!) -- Can't stay together

- Hard for me to say.  Discuss...

- The BIG gun (Gree and AT-RT Driver)
- Clone Pilot cannon/radar thing
- Bases (too big...should be smaller)

Action Feature:
- Don't like them so they all get the thumbs down with the exception of the #6 Clone.  The quickdraw works fairly well and we got the SA clone to compensate!

Other Collectibles / SW Fooseball?!?!

Check out the ROTS Fooseball table I found at Walmart!


The Prequel Trilogy / EP III DVD Easter Eggs?
« on: November 1, 2005, 12:06 PM »
I know the DVD just came out but is there a list of Easter Eggs on the DVD and how to access them anywhere?  I've seen the Yoda "Hip hop" clip on line but it made no mention of how to access it on the DVD.

OK I know I suck, especially with Sculpty but I couldn't wait for Hasbro to make the Galactic Marine (I love clones and I really, really love the snow version) and I hate to compete with the scalpers.  I already feel doomed in the race to get the Utapau Stealth Clone :'(   Stupid that they make such a cool clone so hard to get.  If I didn't luck out with a special hook up/trade I would never have a 1st Target Clone.

Here they are:

Stealth Trooper and Gree Front
Stealth Trooper and Gree Back
Bly and custom AT-RT Driver
Galactic Marines Front
Galactic Marines Back
Minor/Easy Customs because I was bored

OK I'm impatient because I know Hasbro will continue to make different types of clones but with all the new Clone Troopers in EP III why doesn't Hasbro just all of my money by releasing an "accessory pack" for clones.  Now I don't mean just stuff for them to hold or cloaks to wear although that would work too, but I mean stickers, helmet variations, scuba gear.  All sorts of stuff was in the movie and if they made something half as good as I just described (and if it worked i.e., if it fit the figures well) the would sell so many that Ebay's stock would probably go up due to heavy scalping.

Hasbro apparently knows we kill for clones but it doesn't seem like they "really" get it because so many figures sit on the shelves but I'm willing to bet that most if not all clones will never warm the pegs.
