Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: BEST SAE-SAE TIIN YET
« on: December 11, 2003, 02:09 PM »
I just got this Saesee Tiin (note spelling, Saesee Tiin  ;D ), and this is a great figure!  It has definitely exceeded expectations in terms of sculpting, articulation, and the execution of the softgoods.  I'd like to get a couple more, and I think I may "retire" my POTJ and SAGA versions.  There's just the matter of the broken horn.

I have one gripe, and I think it's a legitimate one:  he doesn't fit in my Jedi Starfighter's cockpit.  Saesee  Tiin's bio states that he's one of the greatest pilots of the Jedi order.  He's even depicted in the Clone Wars cartoon piloting a Jedi Starfighter.  Well, I tried putting him in the cockpit, and the canopy won't snap shut.  ::)

Okay.  If it's all about the music, then that's great.

Tell you what:  Picture the ugliest woman you can think of, and then imagine her singing any given Shania Twain song--and sounding exactly the same as Shania.  (Personally, I'm picturing Sandra Bernhard here, because she's the ugliest woman I've seen recently).

Now, do you really think that she would be anywhere near as successful as Shania Twain?



Come on, you had the perfect example at your fingetips and didn't use it?  What about Aretha Franklin?  She's awesome, but she's big as a house!

Big trade rumors indicating A-Rod to BoSox for Manny Ramirez.  I can't remember where Nomar may head.  LA Dodgers?  If indeed the BoSox land A-Rod that would be an amazing pickup.  

Well, word has it that the GM of the Rangers has set a deadline of December 16th to make a Manny-ARod deal.  Let's see if these two teams can get it done.  Texas might actually need the slugger in Manny since both Palmeiro and Juan-Gon are both free agents.

Then, if memory serves me right, Nomar might be headed to the Angels if the ARod deal goes through.

Those guys seems to have been left out of what I call "The Era Of The Ball Joint".  Between that, and the way they can articulate wrists, arms and lower legs, yeah, I think they need some revisiting.  It's just that prequels give Hasbro folks the willies right now.  As for the voice chips....well, there's only a scarce few of those that ever sounded good.  I can pass on those.

Funny you should mention that too.  I was listening to the ROTK Soundtrack earlier.

Those are PK Droids.  I can't believe I left them off my list.

I blame this man:



Me too.  I wouldn't have scored as high if I didn't know anything about soccer, too.

I bought it and listened to it already.  Awesome album!  I know the singer is Tim Armstrong of Rancid's ex-wife, and it sounds like she's letting out the pain of their breakup on this disc.  Simply, it ROCKS!

quite possibly my favorite album of 2k3... and some awesome cover art too!!

How good is this?  I've seen a video from this, and I know some of the story off the singer...a quick review if you could please?

Blech, re-releases.  Oh well, save some money.

Alot of people had some trouble getting some of Unleashed, so re-releases aren't necessarily a bad thing.

Every December 7th, I always think of my Uncle who was stationed at the Army Barracks on Oahu that day.  He was strafed by Japanese planes along with many others that December day in 1941.  He then went on to fight in most of the Pacific campaign over the next 4+years.  I've asked him about it, and it seems that the memories are still very vivid.

If you're ever in Oahu, Hawaii, make sure to visit the Arizona memorial and pay your respects.  It's a real lesson in history.  As you stand on that mounment in Pearl Harbor, your standing astride the tomb of over 1,500 men who gave all.  Pay them their due respect, and never forget them.
