I think we're going to get them at some point.  The ROTS line is still only about 3 months old.  Give it a little time.  Hasbro has to space things out somewhat.  :)

As much as I like the idea of Darth Sidious with the Senate Pods, it seems as though it would be a bit too big for the Deluxe line.† If it was made to get in at the $10 price point that the deluxe line sells for, the scale (f a s c i s t s) would start screaming bloody murder, and I think many would find it to be inadequate.

Rather, I think a Senate playset akin to the EPISODE II arena playset (size wise) might fit the bill better.† Have a wall of several senate pods with an action feature where the Senate pods fly out of the wall.† This could have a wide appeal for both play features AND to collectors who like to display.

Hmmm, Luke?  Perhaps this could be a look at the friendship of Luke and Biggs.  It might wind up incorporating Tank, Cammie and Fixer, too.  There are loads of possibilities.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Live 8 - Which one is Pink?
« on: June 24, 2005, 02:05 AM »
Just read this on Pink Floyd.com:

It has been confirmed that Roger Waters will join Pink Floyd to perform at the Live8 concert in Hyde Park on 2nd July.

David Gilmour made the following statement:
ďLike most people I want to do everything I can to persuade the G8 leaders to make huge commitments to the relief of poverty and increased aid to the third world. Itís crazy that America gives such a paltry percentage of its GNP to the starving nations. Any squabbles Roger and the band have had in the past are so petty in this context, and if re-forming for this concert will help focus attention then itís got to be worthwhile.Ē


Pretty cool to read something like that.  I saw Pink Floyd in Montreal in '94 and the show was fantastic.  It's certainly been a while since they performed together live, but it certainly has the potential to be a great show.  I'm just encouraged to read that musicians who are as well off as the members of Pink Floyd are coming together to do something like this for charity.  They certainly  don't need to perform for money anymore.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: 500th commemorative figure... Vader?

I was fortunate enough to pick one of these up tonight.  It's still in the car and I'm still at work, so I've yet to open it and give it a good looking over.

I got mine straight from Gentle Giant and I believe this was one of the pieces that didn't have a COA included.

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends

I think as a rule Toy Biz is just bad all around.  Dare I say it, but I think with Marvel Legends "Legendary Riders" series, the line has jumped the shark.

Buzz really is everything, isn't it?  Toy companies are fighting each other so hard in an effort to retain collectors attention and retailer's shelf space.  Chase figures are the way that they snag the collectors. 

As much as I dislike the concept of chase figures, I know that it helps keep the interest going strong.  Case in point.  McFarlane saw a tremendous upsurge in the popularity of their Sports Picks line.  Much of the interest that drove that line was the hunt for chase figures.  Initially McFarlane would offer zero or one chase figures per case.  As the line got hotter the number of chases in a 12 piece case went as high as four per case.  But around the time that started to happen, interest started to wane in the line.  Now McFarlane is going back to fewer chases.

As for the Fantastic Four, I think they'll offer a box set some time in the near future.  At the latest, they'll probably offer something like that in time for the holiday season.

Gentle Giant / Re: Gentle Giant Busts

I love a bargain

relatively speaking, that is

Surprised it went so low.† An hour later someone pays $300 :o

That was the only older bust I really wanted.† I do want the red, blue and white clones, but I can live without them at that price.† And I can live without the first versions of the Vader and Yoda given new ones are on their way.† Another hole filled. 8)

Boba Fett was one hole in my mini-bust collection that was really bothering me.  Glad I got it finally at a show for a reasonable price.  Still, now I'm on the lookout for good values for the 1st Vader and Yoda along with the red Clone.  It never ends.  :-[

2 x Crab Droids
1 x Spider Droid

That's intresting. What color were the clones?

The rusty red version of the standing Clone Trooper.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: "Obi-Wan once thought like you do."

Padme explicitly said to Anakin that Obi-Wan wanted to help him/them.  I think that says it all right there.
