Middle Earth / Re: Lord of the Rings Figures

The Merry and Pippen that come in this set are the same as the ones that came with the Moria Orc, in the FOTR packaging.  The Merry and Pippen that came out in TTT packaging are actually a different sculpt (just some different parts, I think).

The Frodo and Sam that come in the Fellowship 9-Pack are the ones from the Elven boat set.  I think those are probably the definitive Frodo and Sam.

Collector's Tips / Re: Collecting Star Wars autographs
« on: September 2, 2003, 10:21 AM »
I know that Christopher Lee has his own site, and sells autographed pics.  They go for 50 pounds each (about $75, I think).  Other actors will sign for free as long as you send the return postage.

I'm currently getting ready to send something out for the first time.  Someone passed along info for Ewan McGregor for me to use, and I'm going to send an 8 x 10" and a figure for him to sign.  I'm hesitant to pass it along, since the info was given to me by a good friend, and he seemed a little cautious about handing out the info.

Other Collectibles / Re: Unleashed Discussion Thread

I've really come to like this line.  It's a new, modern take on the characters.  It picks up where the 3-3/4" and 12" figure lines left off.

Does it have play value?  Not really.  But the sculpts more than make up for it.

The distribution has definitely been spotty.  I've had to weasle and weedle my way to get all of them.  This needs to get addressed.

I'm kind of curious to see where the line will go.  We know what's coming up for the remainder of the year, in terms of Yoda, Boba Fett & Han Solo.  Plus, there's the rumors of a second Boba Fett, Chewbacca and a Clone Trooper.

I guess I just want to know what's coming in the near future.  There's plenty of Jedi to pick from.  IMO, a Qui-Gon would be great, as would some of the Jedi from the arena battle.  I just wonder what other characters are good sources for this line.

Detroit may finally be coming around.  With this move, plus Joey Harrington and Charles Rogers, I think the Lions might finally turn some people's heads.

Well, it probably sounds better than my Japanese Telecaster, which I play through a 15 watt Vox amp.  Especially with that cool amp you've got pictured behind it.

Nice strat dude!  And is that a Bassman you're playing through?  Cool setup.  Which Strat is it, if you don't mind me asking?

The Original Trilogy / Re: Favorite Imperial Officers!

Captain Needa.  He actually seems to think that Vader will understand, and goes to personally apologise.  Nothing like being accountable!  ;D

The Original Trilogy / Re: Death Star Troopers
« on: August 31, 2003, 07:37 PM »
Looking at the image from the cardback, and knowing something about color-correction technique, it appears as through the setup level and chroma level of the image were increased.  That's done to add greater contrast to the image.  However, it has the added effect of making objects that are black appear more like gray.

Speaking for myself, I've never seen an Imperial Naval Trooper with a grey tunic.  I'll go back and look, but I don't know that I'll find one.

I HAVE seen a grey uniformed Death Star gunner, as one is preparing to fire the Death Star's main weapon.  It's definitely an interesting question that bears some looking into.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Who is this guy?

Grand Moff Tracta is his name.  He was featured in the first 4 issues of the Empire comic title, in the "Betrayal" storyline.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Worst Part of Clone Wars
« on: August 31, 2003, 01:48 PM »
I'm not too crazy about General Yoda.  But for me, the worst thing?  I can't find the Clone Trooper 3-packs.  The army builders are going nuts over these, and regular collectors are all looking for these.
