Watto's Junk Yard / Re: How many stores do you hit on your toy runs?

You'd be going to a lot less if you just gave up the McFarlane stuff Nick :P  

Prior to our EB's dropping toys last year, I would have had four more places to visit.  Too bad too, they were good for sports picks.  

Tell me about it.  They had to release MLB7 and NFL6 at the same time.  Cripes!

My local run:

2 x WalMart's
2 x Target's
3 x KayBee's
1 x Toys R Us
2 x Comic Shops
1 x Suncoast
6 x EB/Gamestop type stores

Uggghhh!  17 stores

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Value packs
« on: September 18, 2003, 10:52 AM »
I would suspect that IF we get more of these value packs in the future, that we might get a green Clone Trooper Sergeant and another white Clone Trooper with Obi-Wan and Mace.  I can't see them issuing more red Clone Troopers.  There are plenty out there as it is.

As for the others, if they do them, I get the feeling they may pack in Super Battle Droids or Battle Droids with the Seperatist characters.  Just a theory, nothing more.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Trilogy out on dvd 2004?
« on: September 17, 2003, 11:19 PM »
I think most of that creature stuff is from "From Star Wars To Jedi".  There's a good deal from Jabba's palace in there.

I think there are also some bits of video that have been on the official site regarding the classic trilogy.  Those would be some decent add-ons, too.  I believe that there was also a fair ammount of extra material on one of the VHS editions of the Classic Trilogy that went into the Special Editions.  That could make it onto a 4th disc, as well.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Trilogy out on dvd 2004?
« on: September 17, 2003, 10:34 PM »
As far as behind the scenes material, there is the documentary "From Star Wars to Jedi".  It was on VHS, but never on DVD.  It focused primarily on ROTJ, as it was a pretty good behind the scenes look at that movie.

I can also imagine that there are some other materials available.  Also, there's the potential of interview segments with the various actors and filmmakers.

However, I think we're still doomed to relying on bootleg DVD's for the original theatrical versions of the Classic Trilogy.  While the completist in me would like that, I can understand why we don't have it.  With the exception of Han shooting first, the Special Editions are superior to the theatrical releases.

I do, I do!  Let me know if there's anything you're looking for in trade.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Hot Dogs

When in Jersey, be sure to check out Callahans!  The best hot dogs I've ever had!  Might I add that they deep fry them?  It sounds weird, but they're great.  Positively awesome dogs!

My favorite toppings?  Hot mustard and onions in red sauce.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Favorite Place You Have Traveled
« on: September 17, 2003, 03:51 PM »
There's a few places I can rattle off:

Maui, Hawaii:  This place is paradise on earth.  Wow!  I usually don't go in for tropical locales, but this place was perfect.

Napa Valley, California:  Perfect weather, beautiful area.  And the best wine in North America.

Rocky Mountains, Colorado:  I was in the mountains just west of Pike's Peak (in the vicinity of Colorado Springs), and it was amazing.  Being at elevation was weird, but it was awe inspiring.  Especially this area of rock formations near Colorado Springs called Garden of The Gods.  Wow!

Got the Anakin & Lieutenant and Yoda & Commander value packs tonight.  I think it's kind of cool that they actually noted the ranks of the Clone Troopers on the bubble inserts.

I also have to wonder, how well will this Anakin fit into his Starfighter?

Other Toy Lines / Re: McFarlane Sportspicks

So, anyone find NFL6 yet?  There's some wacky pieces in this series, like a Falcons Brett Favre, Chiefs Rich Gannon, Panthers Stephen Davis, and of course, Dallas Emmitt Smith.

The interrogation droid would be cool with an A New Hope Leia.

Gotta wonder what might be on tap for this line in 2004.  They've done some great work thus far, and a lot with the core characters.  Where else can they go now?

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Screen Scenes: first wave vs. the second wave
« on: September 14, 2003, 01:59 PM »
The Council when put together is bigger than I thought it would be.  I've still got to wonder, if I put together two Ultarama bases and buy another 4 Jedi Council Screen Scenes, how would it look?

As for the new Jedi Council Screen Scene?  I like it a lot.  Although, Depa Billaba is VERY minimally articualted.  I like Yarael Poof alot, but I get the feeling he should be taller.  Also, Yaddle seems REALLY tiny.

A friend of mine just got me the second set.  I picked them up today, and they look really cool!  I've yet to open them, but I'm gonna do it really soon.

Not a great figure (The clone) IMO, but with a super articulated clone coming the rehashed Saga clone's just fine and dandy as something to add variety I think.


This might be that super articulated Clone Trooper.  As it is, this Clone Trooper has 14 points of articulation (if you include the two axes that the knees are articulated on):

-neck
-right shoulder
-right elbow (pivot joint)
-right wrist
-left shoulder
-left elbow (pivot joint)
-left wrist
-waist
-right hip
-right knee (bend)
-right knee (pivot)
-left hip
-left knee (bend)
-left knee (pivot)

The true test will be to see if these Clone Troopers wind up being individually carded in a later series.  My guess is that they might go with the same sculpt.
