Revenge of the Sith / Re: "Evolutions" assortment...

I got another tidbit of info from a source today saying that the Second pack will be:

Ep2 Clone Trooper
Ep3 ARC Trooper
Ep4 Sandtrooper

That Ep3 ARC Trooper makes me think that it's the Clone Commander.  The appearance of that figure is so much like the ARC Trooper that I made that connection almost instantly.

I googled it first and didn't come up with anything.  You would think that if anything like that came out, it would be with the AP, and that would hit all sorts of news sites.  I'm curious to see what the writer's response will be.  I'd be more interested in seeing what the writer's editor would say about this.  The article wasn't written by Stephen Glass, was it?  ;)

I'll be adding the Ultimate Villain Darth Vader, Emporer Palpatine and General Grievous at some point.  My focus has been on the 3.75 inch line for the time being.

There's also Sio Bibble in EPISODE I, pleading with Amidala saying "You must contact me".  There are also several in ROTS that can be seen on the Trivial Pursuit DVD.  But that might be ***SPOILERIFIC!***

Gotcha.  I just realized where I have it.  It's not the Japanese version of TEN, but from a live bootleg.  Not sure if I want to buy an import version of an album I already own just to get the studio version of one song.  Drat!

I understand why there's no knee articulation on this Mace.  And it's because of the action feature. 

That, plus the leg is only half as long as it should have been.  This thing is a stunted little monkey.

Even though the comment is borderline racist, try standing this figure next to some of it's ROTS linemates.  Standing him next to Anakin, he was just about the same height.  Is he out of proportion?  Possibly.

I understand why there's no knee articulation on this Mace.  And it's because of the action feature.  When you have to squeeze a figure's legs together to get the arms to move, that's when you wind up with a problem.  Oh well.  Better luck next time, Hasbro.

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.

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.
