Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?
« on: August 31, 2003, 01:44 PM »
The Jedi:  Same thoughts.  The Rodian is definitely my least favorite, as he's the least posable.

I definitely prefer the Green Clone Trooper 3-pack.  Especially with the Clone Trooper with binoculars.  That one is a big improvement over the prone Clone Trooper.

My favorites are the standing Clone Trooper, and the one with the binoculars.  The kneeling Clone Trooper isn't very versatile, and the prone one is only good for sniping, or as a battlefield casualty.

Hmmm, methinks using the bicycle to go on toy runs might be a bit more economical.

So who all has found the Jedi pk?  I've only seen it once, and grabbed it from TRU.

 :P

Haven't found it, but I traded for it.  Pretty cool set, IMO.

WOOHOO!  Scored the Green set yesterday.  And boy, I think this lineup is better than the origianl one.  The prone Clone Trooper really brings the sets down, whereas the standing Clone with binoculars is pretty cool.  ESPECIALLY with 3 points of articulation in his left arm.  He can be posed with the binoculars, or with both hands on his blaster.  COOL!

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Reunions or Concerts that will never happen

3 Points here:

Primus will tour again.  They have reunited to record a new album.  Tour will follow.

But will Herb be back playing Drums?  Or will it be Brain again?

Pink Floyd is all done. As far as money is concerned, they are loaded. David Gilmour within the last year donated millions (one of his castles, money and tons of his equipment for charity) .  His response:  I cant take it with me and I have more than enough money.  Another reason they will not tour is that they have been averaging a new album like every 8-10 years.  Plus there tours are very demanding and last like 3-4 years each.  

Waters might be the one in need of the money.  Plus, Nick Mason, while a full member, doesn't get much of the royalty money.  He might be in favor as well.  Richard Wright is more of a hired hand since he got ousted from the band before The Final Cut.  So, he might be interested as well.  Gilmour is the best off financially, so he's the only one I could see holding out.

As for Zep, I understand without Bonham that the circle is not complete.  But a drummer, even as good as Bonham, can be replaced.  Jason was rumored at one point.  I saw the Page and Plant tour, and while entertaining they have lost all of there mojo.  I am more interested in them touring under the Led Zep name and with Jonesy on bass.

Jonesy's been touring on his own.  He put out a couple of album's, and I saw him open for King Crimson.  From an artistic standpoint, he's doing much better work than Page or Plant have done in their respective solo careers.  AND, he put on a killer show.  Seeing King Crimson after him, I actually felt sorry for them follow him.  He and his band stole the show.

As for rumors of Jason Bonham filling in...just rumors.  He's following down his father's path in terms of drug and drink problems, so that's not very likely.  And as for their collective finances, they're all in good shape following the DVD and live album releases.  I would say a tour is fairly unlikely.

I tend to find any kind of musical ranking system to be BS.  Music is pretty much a subjective area, and ranking individual musicians is ludicrous.  And why did they limit it to only a few genres?  I don't see Segovia on there.  Or Wes Montgomery.

Don't put any creedence in this list.  It's just crap to fill page space, because they couldn't come up with a legit article.

Im not talking about circumstances such as death that keep a band apart.  But what groups out there will never get back together or tour again?  One band is Pink Floyd.  I came to grips last year that they are no more, whether with Waters coming back or without him.  Pink Floyd was by far the greatest concert experience of my life.  I saw them once in 1987 and three times in '94.   Who else is finished?  I also believe Zep will never tour again.  

Actually, Pink Floyd MAY actually happen.  With the downturn in the economy, some rockstars lost a lot of money in the dotcom's.  So, you may actually see something like a Pink Floyd reunion (minus Syd Barret) because of financial considerations.

There might be more legs to the LOTR than we thought.  The rumors still abound that after making King Kong and another movie, Peter Jackson may return to make The Hobbit.  Hopefully Toy Biz can continue on with that.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Price Gouging Clonetroopers?
« on: August 27, 2003, 05:25 PM »
I was just at a store that some would consider expensive:  Toys R Us in Times Square.  They had the Clone Troopers for $11.99 each.  Considering it was the first time I've ever seen the Blue version at retail EVER, I thought it was acceptable.

NICE!  I've been wondering when we'd get just a plain Uruk Hai, and here they give us the crossbowman.  Very cool!

Red 6's site is nice, but I think there's some liberties taken with actual names over what LFL deems their names to be.

Not that it matters honestly...  But I do believe there's some discrepency sometimes.

I'd be in army builider heaven if every figure that spoke got a figure...  Too bad no Fleet Troopers speak besides a grunt or groan. :(  I'd get a new one, and maybe a decent one.

I'm pretty sure that the Red 6 site has taken that info from the Decipher CCG.

My email said that it won't ship until September 4th.  But, if I can save myself the stress and gas of running around looking...I can deal.
