Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Clone Commander Bly
« on: April 16, 2005, 06:28 PM »
I'm hoping we don't have to revert to customizing all of these Clone Commanders on our own.  Hopefully Hasbro will cut us off at the pass and offer these guys in the basic figure line.  Thankfully though, it seems easy enough to paint over the red markings of the existing Clone Commander to change the legion markings.

A lot of the young Jedi actresses are very cool and incredibly hot.  I've met Amy Allen on a number of occassions, and she's been nothing but nice.  Great to chat with in general.  Orli Shoshan is fairly new to the autograph circuit, but she's been really hospitable.  I'm looking forward to seeing some of them next week at C3.

Excellent work!  The fine detail and weathering are what really sell your work.  Very nice.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: EE exclusive Clone Trooper 4-packs!
« on: April 16, 2005, 05:52 PM »
I split a case of these with one friend.  We're both army builders, and that quantity of figures was ideal for us.  We're each getting 1 complete set of all 4 variant packs.  We're also going to divide the third set between us, and we'll actually split the figures out from that.

I'm curious if EE has offered a semi-firm delivery date on these yet.  My friend made the order on these, so I haven't been in the loop on these as much as he has.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Eopie - ROTS style
« on: April 15, 2005, 08:23 PM »
I can't see this piece being released until well after the movie has been out in theaters.  I think if anything it would be part of the 2006 assortment.

Got the Obi-Wan VS Magna Droid Battle Arena today.  This Obi-Wan Kenobi is probably the best likeness of Ewan McGregor that Hasbro has ever made.

I've had guys ask me "which figures are shortpacked?" many times before.  Some are known Hot Wheels eBay dealers and I almost NEVER see them buy Star Wars.  I just play dumb and say I don't know.

There was one guy in my area who used to run in the aisles at store openings.  One time I was walking ahead of him at a normal pace, and he was almost stepping on my heels.  This same guy was also known for elbowing people while they were trying to get figures off the pegs, and even snatched a figure out of a kids hand once.

It's good to know that karma can be a bitch though.  Turns out that the guy wasn't just a jerk to fellow collectors, but to his wife, too.  She sued him for divorce and had his office raided to find cash and also had his stoarge bin with his collection raided as well.  He was last sighted at Celebration 2 selling his vintage collection under the supervision of an Indiana Marshall who took account of everything he sold at the show so that the proceeds of the sale could be split between him and his ex-wife.  It really makes you want to think about a pre-nup when it comes to your collection.  But at least a dirtbag got a taste of his own medicine in the end.

The US is currently worth $1.29299 in Australian dollars.  Even taking that into account, it sounds like SW is kind of expensive down under.

Lightsaber
Rebreather
Commlink (similar to the Qui-Gon Jinn one)
Handheld holo-projector with holo Jedi
Jedi macrobinoculars (similar to the ones that came with SAGA Obi-Wan Pilot)
Blinding helmet
training remote
figure stands

CLONE ARMY
Poncho (as seen in Clone Wars cartoon)
Macrobinoculars
Blaster rifle
small blaster
blaster pistol
blaster rifle rack
observation/scout droid
Clone Trooper helmet
figure stands


WOOKIEES
Wookiee harness or satchel
blaster rifle (from Preview Wookiee Warrior)
bowcaster
shield (from Wookiee Warrior)
staff
blaster (from Wookiee Warrior)
club (from Tarfful)
welder (from Chewie - Mechanic)
figure stands


That's all I can think of at the moment.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: TRU Cinema Scenes Sale
« on: April 12, 2005, 05:34 PM »
The SAGA Screen Scenes have been on clearance around here for some time.  But they haven't marked down the OTC ones, and those are the ones that NEED to be clearanced since they were so weak in their execution.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Question For Those Banned at RS
« on: April 12, 2005, 03:06 PM »
Never been banned at any site, so I'm curious about something.

Can you still access and read the forums, and just not participate and read PM's, or are you blocked from the forums entirely?


I'm blocked entirely.  Can't say that it's a big deal, but I get the occassional chuckle from reading the forums.
