Got a blue Clone Trooper Bust Up, but by no means is it up for trade.

Uh-Oh, Nick,

Better re-check your order then...

Somewhere around July 7th, most e-tailers CHANGED the case packs for waves 2 and 2.5 cases.

From EE, wave 2:
"UPDATE July 7, 2004 - Assortment Change. Lando Calrissian has been removed from this assortment by Hasbro. Please see item number HS85213B2. "

Lando got pulled and replaced with Han and Luke.  

The case-pack of 2x Han, Luke, Vader, Yoda is how EE, NewForce, etc are all listing the wave 2 case now, and it has been confirmed by Cloud City, Brian's Toys, and ActionHQ all of whom got the wave 2 cases in this week.  I would assume that this will end up being the case for too since their case pack is exactly how the old EE case pack was listed.  :(


I only placed the order within the past week.  If they haven't changed the listing on their site, then there's a more serious problem.

Hey Hasbro!  We know that you need to keep core characters in the mix.  Here are some that might please both collectors and the more casual fans, albeit they do need some improvements in the facial sculpts.


Basic Figures

-Qui-Gon Jinn & Obi-Wan Kenobi as they are seen below

or like so..

or perhaps like this

-Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Theed Generator Duel (super-posable, please!)

-Qui-Gon Jinn & Darth Maul from the Theed Generator Duel (super-posable, please!)

-Anakin Skywalker in Pod Racing gear with removable helmet

-Queen Amidala on Coruscant

Let me echo the sentiments for a line of Knights Of The Old Republic figures.  This is by far one of the best games LucasArts has ever made, and the characters really hold up.

Hey Hasbro! / Re: hey hasbro how about some imperial commanders
« on: July 29, 2004, 08:04 PM »
Yeah, we definitely need some of the high profile Imperial Officers.  Namely...

-General Tagge
-Colonel Wulf Vularen
-Admiral Ozzel
-Captain Needa
-Moff Jerjerrod

Scratch one from this list.

-General Tagge
-Colonel Wulf Vularen
-Admiral Ozzel
-Captain Needa
-Moff Jerjerrod

4 left to go!

Nice choices on the recently announced Cantina Wave, Hasbro.  Here are 10 others that are good choices:

Baniss Keeg - Duros.  This one can be something of a kitbash, since Hasbro has already produced Ellors Madak, a similar looking Duros.

Bom Vimdim

Hem Dazon - Arcona.   This one is important to a lot of collectors.  It's one of the most distinctive aliens in the Cantina, especially since this is the first alien we see in the famous Mos Eisly Cantina scene.

Dice Ibegon.  Once again, this is one of the most visually distinctive aliens in the Cantina.

Hrchek Kal Fas - Saurin.  This is a character that is somewhat reminiscent of Bossk.  Once again, this is a character that can probably be made from kitbashed parts.

M'iiyoom Onith

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Episode III line....April 2nd, 2005
« on: July 29, 2004, 03:33 PM »
April '05 is gonna be expensive.  Between The ROTS line and Celebration 3 AND taxes, I don't know how I'm going to get through that month.

I ordered Wave 2 from Star Wars Shop, and this is the case breakdown they gave me:

1 Luke Skywalker
1 Han Solo
2 Darth Vader
2 Yoda
2 Lando Calrissian

I finally resigned myself to opening some of these.  Basically, I'll have three categories of what I'm doing with the VOTC figures.

These are just too good to keep in the bubble.  The poseability, softgoods and overall detail demand that these figures need some space to breathe.  Besides, I need to retire my Cantina Han's!

I had given up on being a MOMC collector with the advent of the SAGA/EPISODE II line.  However, the VOTC line is packaged SO WELL that I have to keep a set in pristine condition, and these won't be leaving their clamshells anytime soon.

This is more of a personal slant on my collection, but where applicable, I like to get the actors to sign the figures.  I already got Carrie Fisher to sign a Princess Leia courtesy of a great friend of mine who attended Comic Con.  It's too bad that she will probably be THE ONLY actor from the ANH wave that will sign something, since Mark Hammil doesn't sign merchandise, Harrison Ford is among the Holy Grail of Star Wars actors, and Alec Guiness can't sign anything since unfortunately he's pushing up the daisies!

I'm more hopeful that I can get everyone in the ESB and most of the ROTJ waves to sign those figures.  But seriously, who do you get to sign a Stormtrooper?!

Be those things as they may, all of the autographed figures are going to have to come out of the clamshells to get signed.  At that point, I'll be sealing those right back up.

I put them in plastic baggies (acid free), and then I box those all up.  I don't have anywhere near the room to display what I'd like to, so a lot of stuff is boxed and in storage.

Bad news for you then.  Randy Johnson shot down a trade to the Dodgers within the last couple of days.  The D-Backs were so sure it was complete that they went to him and asked him to waive his no-trade and he declined!  He is saying Yankees or bust now.  Funny thing is, a kid from my high school who's in the Dodgers system was supposed to be part of the deal.

I don't know if I like the Yankees trading for him.  Sure, the guy is a gamer.  But the D-Backs want Jorge Posada, who is arguably the second best catcher in baseball.  I don't know if I'd do it.  It would be the first instance of the Yanks trading one of their big home-grown players.  It would almost be like them trading Jeter, to put it in perspective.

Does anyone find that the paint apps on the Jedi Council Scene 1 Ki-Adi Mundi is not so good?
