Hey Hasbro! / Re: Questions for Hasbro?
« on: August 28, 2006, 08:45 AM »
I loved the Evolutions 3 packs released last year.  Are there any plans to do more?  I think Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo would be ideal!

If I were in charge of Hasbro, here is what I would do.  Remeber the micro machines that were from the EU?  You open up a book and you had a couple of ships and some mini figures?  The books were similar in size to paperbacks.  I would go similar to hard backs and have 4 action figures.  Here they are:


Heir to the Empire
-Joruus C'baoth with snap on Force Lightning
-Grand Admiral Thrawn
-Rukh w/ blaster
-Han Solo w/ blaster

Dark Force Rising
-Luke Skywalker w/ lightsaber
-Khbarakh w/ blaster
-Garm Bel Ibis w/ blaster
-Talon Karrde w/ blaster

The Last Command
-Clone Luke w/ lightsaber
-Mara Jade w/ wrist blaster
-Leia Solo w/ blaster and lightsaber
-Captain Pellaeon w/ blaster

Jedi Search-Paperback 2 figs
-Admiral Daala w/ blaster
-Han Solo w/ blaster

-Dorsk 81 w/ lightsaber
-Bevel Lemelisk
-Han Solo w/ blaster

New Rebellion
-Kueller w/ lightsaber
-Brakiss w/ lightsaber
-Luke Skywalker w/ lightsaber
-Leia Solo w/ lightsaber

Just give me Darth Talon.  This chick will be as hot as the Slave Leia, and she has a lightsaber!

The main point is I liked the last POTF2 Luke head sculpt and felt it was a bad idea to change it, that's all.  I like the poseability and the more accurate lightsaber, but hated the open right hand (Cmon Hasbro, he's not a lefty!  Neither is vader, but that's for a later day).  The one they have given him now makes him look like an old alien.

Oh, and thank you too, Rob!  I have others I need to look up tracks to and will head over there!

Special thanks to all of you for making "My" Saga Complete!

Here's a link to download the complete ROTJ 1997 SE in MP3 form:


A big problem with the 1997 soundtrack is that they left off the original "Lapti Nek" and "Ewok Celebration ('Yub Nub')" tracks in favor of "Jedi Rocks" and "Victory Celebration." 

I've added the original songs back into my version, and resequenced them so that the originals are where they should be, and the 1997 tracks are at the very end, where they belong.  (Actually, they don't belong anywhere at all, but for the sake of completionism. . .)

Here's the tracklisting:

01.  20th Century Fox Fanfare
02.  Main Title/Approaching the Death Star/Tatooine Rendezvous
03.  The Droids Are Captured
04.  Bounty for a Wookiee
05.  Han Solo Returns
06.  Luke Confronts Jabba and Den of the Rancor
07.  The Pit of Carkoon and Sail Barge Assault
08.  The Emperor Arrives and The Death of Yoda
09.  Alliance Assembly
10.  Shuttle Tydirium Approaches Endor
11.  Speeder Bike Chase and Land of the Ewoks
12.  The Levitation and Threepio's Bedtime Story
13.  Jabba's Baroque Recital
14.  Lapti Nek
15.  Sail Barge Assault (alternate)
16.  Parade of the Ewoks
17.  Luke and Leia
18.  Brother and Sister and Father and Son and The Fleet Enters Hyperspace
19.  Emperor's Throne Room
20.  The Battle of Endor I
21.  The Lightsaber and The Ewok Battle
22.  The Battle of Endor II
23.  The Battle of Endor III
24.  Leia's News and Light of the Force
25.  Ewok Celebration/Finale
26.  Ewok Feast and Part of the Tribe
27.  The Forest Battle (Concert Suite)
28.  Jedi Rocks (1997 SE)
29.  Victory Celebration and End Title (1997 SE)

Switch out the green tracks for the red, delete the green, and you have the 1997 SE soundtrack, if that's what you want.

And, just for the hell of it, here are the original tracks by themselves, if anyone wants just those:

"Lapti Nek"
"Ewok Celebration/Finale"

Thank you!!!!!!!!!  I now pledge a life debt to you.

Okay, here is the problem.  I have the special edition soundtracks to Ep 4, 5 and 6.  I have the CD's in a special case and have added them to my computer.  So, here is my problem:  I moved b/c of Katrina and have lost my list for Return of the Jedi.  I do not plan to add every track, but it would help me to know what to add or not to add.  So, does anybody know where I can find a list of the music w/out having to buy another copy of go to a music store w/ a pan and pencil and start writing? 

Thanks for the help!

Make sure you post in the customizing area with those when you're ready hcmv007, not here in a collecting area. :)


Sounds good, how bout a pic?

No digital camera  :'(.  Yet.  Once I have one, or access to one, I will post them all here, including instructions on how i made/butchered them! 

Well, the scale of the Saga JK Luke Skywalker was actually pretty spot-on when you compare him with other PROPERLY scaled figures.  If anything that was a turn for the better in my opinion.

Mark Hammil is a short guy...  That's why his figure's have been shorter of late.  Some are a tad too short, but the Jedi Luke from 03/04 was considered by many to be a really nicely sized figure when you would place him with say the recent TSC Han Carbonite figure...  That Han's proper sized in that he's a lot shorter than a new Chewbacca for instance, but he's a bit taller than Luke as he should be... 

Basically, Luke's a short guy. :)  Another great example of a GREAT scale Luke Skywalker is VTSC Luke X-Wing Pilot.  THe height is short because Hammil is short.  He should look tiny compared to the other pilots (or most of them anyway). 

For the record you can dig up actor's heights on IMDB if you want to draw comparisons on scale. 

Just a slave to POTF2 I guess.

I liked the figure, and have been looking for one for years, as it is a pain to make your own R5.  My only complaint is that the third leg is not retractable.  Still a good figure, but I wish they would not put the holo figures in there with it, that is why the price is so high on the figs.

Have you noticed how short they have made Luke?  I feel like it is just bad.  The Saga Luke can barely hold the lightsaber, and the arms easily fall off.  So, here's how I improved my Saga Luke:

-Saga Luke Skywalker (Jabba's Palace)
-POTF2 Final Duel Luke Skywalker (Head)
-Admiral Ozzel (Right hand)
-Obi-Wan Kenobi Caoruscant Bar (Legs)

1.  Boil and pop Saga Luke's head, cut off the peg on FD Luke's head, as it will not fit in the figure.  Remove llegs and torso and pop off the boots

2.  Take Obi-Wan and boil and pop his torso, the legs should come right off, pull off the boots.  Place Luke's boots on the pegs.  Paint legs flat back.  Acrylic paints work the best. 

3.  Once paint dries, snap torso and legs onto Saga Luke-Do not forget about the 'skirt' !

4.  Wedge in Luke FD head.  It  can fit, and will stay in the socket as long as you do not lift the figure by the head.

5.  Remove open right hand, stick on Admiral Ozzel's black gloved right hand.  Give Luke the lightsaber from the Saga figure and you are all set!  (to make him wear the cloth robe, you must CAREFULLY cut a piece of the neck of the robe to fit the head)

My complaints (back to the point) is that the scale of the sagas.  I am NOT getting new SW figures again, I mean I still have my POTF2 stuff.  But I like the sculpts, just not of Luke of Lando.  But I will get figures of some characters-Cantina ones, or prequel characters.  Just my 2 cents.

Well, the one from RotS, Obi as Red Leader is pretty much "it", I think.

Really, this is the one Hasbro  will never top (well, maybe if they rerelease him with a nice soft goods cloak). ;D

Agreed!  I took Obi-Wan's Cloak from the VOTC and gave it to my Red Leader Obi-Wan.  Just a hint

« on: June 29, 2006, 09:56 AM »
I've seen her go for the high 30's early 40's packaged, and about 8-12 for her loose around here.  Just lucky I got 2 of her.

New here.  Love them all!  THE best line ever, and was upset that they ended it.
