Here's a question for our resident PJ experts.  I heard Pearl Jam do a cover of The Beatles song "I've got a feeling".  Reason being that I'm making a mix CD of various artists covering The Beatles, and I'd like to include this on the mix.  So the question is, where can I find Pearl Jam's version of "I've got a feeling" on CD?  I think I might have it, but when you own in excess of 1,500 CDs, it's a little bit of a hassle to start searching through everything.

Putting things in perspective, this Mace Windu is certainly better than some of the Mace Windu figures that have been offered in the past.

-The EPISODE I Preview figure is okay, but the robe has nowhere near the volume and weight that it should along with the wrong lightsaber. 

-The EPISODE I basic figure still has the wrong lightsaber as well as that horrendous "Choc-Obi-Wan" style cloak, but it's a good, neutral Mace sans robe.

-The SAGA Deluxe and Basic figures were not up to the challenge.  They had too many action features, nothing approaching neutral poses, poor articulation, and gritted teeth that looked more like he had just come from a set at Hah-Hah's in Cleveland.

-The Clone Wars (movie look) Mace Windu was a valiant attempt, but once again the face was all wrong.

-The Mace Windu from the first Jedi Council Screen Scene is one of the few that can really give the ROTS Mace a run for it's money.  It has good articulation, soft goods and a decent likeness.  But no cloak and no lightsaber.

-ROTS Mace Windu from the Battle Arena is not all that impressive, either.  He's got one leg that's completely preposed, and one that only moves at the hip.  The articulation in the arms is very minimal, and once again he has the gritted teeth.  How difficult is it to make a Mace Windu figure, seriously?

I'll be happy when the Tank Gunner starts showing.  That figure looks like it's got promise.  Same goes for the SA Clone Trooper.  I can only hope that the Turbo Tank Driver will be good, too.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: To PG or not PG
« on: April 10, 2005, 12:24 AM »
Search the MPAA website's ratings directory.  There's no listing for REVENGE OF THE SITH.  At least not yet.  IMDB doesn't have a rating for the movie yet either.

I wouldn't be surprised to see this movie get a PG-13 rating.  But I also think that the newspaper you're referring to has questionable sources at best.

There's a Mace Windu hologram in AOTC as well onboard the Naboo Royal Yacht.

The ranks of my REVENGE OF THE SITH armies continue to swell:

Wookiee Warriors:  12

Clone Commander:  2

Clone Pilot:  2

Clone Troopers:  12

AT-RT:  2

BARC Speeder:  2

ARC-170:  1

General Grievous's Bodyguards:  4

Blue Royal Guard:  4

Red Royal Guard:  2

Battle Droid:  2

Super Battle Droid:  2 (1 x regular, 1 x from the Deluxe)



Have to say, the Battle Droids seem somewhat better than their AOTC brothers.  A good thing, definitely.  I'll be waiting on the SA Clone Trooper to further build up my Clone Army along with the 3-pack.  I'm also hoping that there are Commander Bly, Cody, Gree and Neyo figures on the way along with Commander Bacara.

Scored the Clone Wars set the other day, and the Crimson Empire set  yesterday.  Can't wait to see what the holo Emporer looks like out of the box.

Please pardon my ignorance, clone wars set?

This is the Clone Wars Trade Paperback that's available exclusively at Borders bookstores.  It includes the amber Chewbacca and a regular Yoda.

Would it be wrong to print up a bunch of black armbands withRS printed on them for C3?

Be more blatant about it.  Make up t-shirts that say REBELSCUM SUCKS.

DON'T STEAL MY MOTTO!!






Meh, you stole it from Primus anyway.

I can't say that I was happy to receive this email either, and I think that the situation has been handled poorly at best. Rebelscum, like it or not, is a business. It is a website designed to attract hits and charge for advertising based on the activity and hits. Part of being a business is maintaining a good relationship with the people you do business with. I have read disturbing reports of belligerent emails from the staff to readers who have been displeased with this matter. The readers are Rebelscum's customers, and berating customers with legitimate complaints does not constitute good customer service by any measure.

I received the email in question, and also wondered why I found this in my email inbox. I registered for my account in 2002, and I do not recall being given a choice when I registered as to whether or not I could choose to receive promotional emails or not. As a rule, whenever I register at a website I prefer to keep my personal email information private and when given a choice about such matters, I opt not to receive such emails. I like so many people using the internet value my privacy.

Additionally, I heard that some of the responses from the staff of this website stated that if people did not wish to receive promotional email that they should have stated so upon registration. Looking into things from this standpoint I chose to examine my own Rebelscum profile. And what I found was peculiar. My profile showed that I had never made a choice about whether or not I wanted to receive promotional emails. As I mentioned before, had I been given the choice I would have opted not to receive such emails. This begs the question of when was this option offered to Rebelscum forum members if at all? I think that it's a legitimate question.

I for one am irked by the email, and additionally disappointed by the response. I think that at this time when the final Star Wars movie is about to be released, the collecting community needs to regard each other with respect and courtesy in order to maintain any sense of cohesion in the future. And the websites that serve that community need to respect the people they serve.

My two cents worth in Princess's thread.  I figured I would quote myself here since the thread is likely to be locked or deleted, and I want my comments to stand for some to see.

Counting down to my banning.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Kids and ROTS (SPOILERS)
« on: April 5, 2005, 11:44 PM »
My point is, is that this stuff is 100x worse than anything thats been in any SW movie and people I think are thinking its going to be like the other 5

I agree that it's all going to be harsh.  This is going to be THE MOST violent Star Wars movie of all.  No doubt about it, it's lining up to be that way.

The thing that I'm wondering is this:  will George treat it such a manner as to make it "cinematic" and mildly acceptable, or will it be outwardly brutal?  I think that's the fine line that this movie is going to straddle.  That could make this movie a tough sell as well.  At least to kids.

I think  Scott has a very valid point.  I've started giving my 4 year old nephew some Star Wars items, and he's starting to get into it a little.  Thing is, I've seen the immolation image along with the shot of Dooku with his hands cut off.  There is NO WAY I want my nephew to see things like that at his age, even if he's only a year younger than I was when I saw ANH.  This is much more violent, and pretty inappropriate for young kids.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Holo Yoda?
« on: April 4, 2005, 01:09 AM »
I received an e-mail from Amazon today that my Holo Yoda order has "been delayed".  Suddenly, I am very nervous that these are suddenly going to be sold out, leaving a lot of less than happy collectors...   :(

Strange.  My order is due to get to my house on Wednesday.  Well, if there's any kind of a goof, I can rest assured thanks to the one Holo Yoda I got at the Times Square TRU today.
