Power of the Jedi / Re: Darth Vader, Emperor's Wrath

The hand is removable.  But, yeah, it should be a stump with some wires protruding.  But then, we couldn't have gotten that nifty  ;) repaint of this figure in the Imperial Forces 4-Pack.

It's varying between Radiohead's "Kid A", "Amnesiac", and The Flaming Lips' "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots"

TV-9D9 / Re: CLONE WARS Cartoon... Reactions
« on: November 7, 2003, 08:12 PM »
It re-airs at midnight, EDT.  Also, it'll be available to Hyperspace subscribers on the official site within a half hour or so.

I think the episode was decent.  However, the intro sequence ate up a lot of the showtime.

The voice actors seemed decent.  Yoda sounded good, and so did Obi-Wan.  I didn't think Palpatine was quite so good though.

It's playing at the local IMAX theater, so when I get a free moment I'm gonna see it there.  That'll probably be next week at the earliest.

Other Collectibles / Re: Unleashed Discussion Thread
« on: November 6, 2003, 09:47 AM »
I've been in on Unleashed since it began.  It's a great line.  Especially if you like some other toy companies, like McFarlane, Art Asylum, Mezco, etc.  It's a cool, modern take on the characters.

There have definitely been some misteps in the process, especially with distribution, and maybe the Darth Maul and Padme figures.  If Hasbro can find a way to get a proportionate ammount of Unleashed to market, I think they can do really well.  As things stand now, I think some are collecting Unleashed merely because it's been tough to get.

I'll be getting the Obi-Wan to go along with my Jedi-Sith-Bounty Hunters-Droids theme for my 12" collection.  I'll be passing on the rest.

I'll reserve my judgements of this figure until I have a hardcopy in hand.  It seems premature, in my opinion, to critique a figure that nobody has in hand at this time.  Photos can only tell you so much.

I've seen the figure in Chicago first hand, and the sculpt looks pretty good.  It looks like a decent step forward from the POTF2 version.  I wasn't able to see what points of articulation there were, but Hasbro has done a fairly decent job of camoflaging those points in recent years.  

One interesting sidenote:  the face of this Hoth Rebel Trooper appears to be slightly similar to that of a Hasbro design team member.  This seems to be something of a trend/inside joke that's been going on.  The first time was with both of the SAGA Endor Rebel Soldiers.  Both of them resemble two members of the Hasbro-Star Wars team.  A more recent instance is the human Jedi in the Clone Wars 3-pack who resembles a long time designer at Hasbro.  Now, this one resembles one of the panelists who gave part of the Star Wars roundtable discussion at Wizard World in Chicago.  It's kind of funny, because if you've ever met these guys you'd see the resemblance pretty quickly.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Retail 2004: How Do You Think It Will Be?
« on: November 2, 2003, 08:58 AM »
A lot of how 2004 will be depends on how this Christmas season goes.  If retailers are able to move a lot of Star Wars during the holidays, then we might be in a decent position for distribution in 2004.

I expect that there might be some big sales.  Very likely at Toys R Us, where they might hold another "Black Friday" sale the day after Thanksgiving.  I'd expect figures to be priced as low as $1.99 each for that event.  Unfortunately, the same tactic hasn't been working all that well for KayBee.

After the holidays and the ensuing inventories, I'd expect the first couple of months of '04 to be a little dry at retail.  That's just an annual occurrence as retail chains assess their post-holiday inventory situation, and process any new orders.  Things will usually pick up in March and the second quarter.

My assessment?  If you're a GOTTA HAVE IT! type, then you might want to pre-order the first few waves of 2004.  After that, you should be able to get everything easily enough at retail.

I got a few of those as trade bait.  They definitely helped my plug some holes in my collection, AND build up my Naboo Security force.
