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?

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

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.

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.

A fellow local collector was telling me that KayBee has marked these up.  That's kind of bogus, IMO.

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
« on: August 28, 2003, 02:57 PM »
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.

« on: August 28, 2003, 02:48 PM »
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.
