The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Anyone? Picture Help
« on: January 9, 2005, 03:58 PM »
There have been a number of images circulating about this scene.  What I've consistently heard is that Dooku was supposed to use two lightsabers against Yoda.  However, George Lucas is a ruthless editor, even with his own material.  He saw that Attack Of The Clones was running long, and cut the duel between Yoda and Dooku.  In fact, in some of the behind the scenes footage on the AOTC dvd, you can seen Christopher Lee wielding 2 lightsabers at one point.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Anakin is Vader Before the Suit?!?
« on: January 9, 2005, 03:27 PM »
Think about it from this standpoint...

When we meet Obi-Wan on Tatooine in ANH, he talks about Darth Vader.    This is all stuff we know from the movies already.  This exchange tells you that Obi-Wan knows that Anakin became the Sith Lord called Darth Vader:

LUKE: How did my father die?

BEN: A young Jedi named Darth Vader, who was a pupil of mine until he
turned to evil, helped the Empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi
Knights. He betrayed and murdered your father. Now the Jedi are all
but extinct. Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Force.


So at some point prior to the duel, Anakin must take on the name of Darth Vader.  It's easy to just deduce that since the duel was the last time Obi-Wan had encountered him before their duel on the Death Star.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Wookie subtitles?

It makes sense to me.  They've done subtitles for Huttese, why not for the Wookiees?

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Trooper 4 Packs!
« on: January 8, 2005, 10:58 AM »
Also one has to wonder, whose idea was this 4pack in the first place? Reading some posts one would think that Entertainment Earth brought the idea to Hasbro, but does EE have the ordering power to be able to do so? What if it was Hasbro who brought the idea to EE after the major retailers passed on it (which if they did, sucks major ass!).


I heard about this set from a good source about 6 weeks ago.  Sure enough when I heard that the story was that it was EE that approached Hasbro about doing this.  They're definitely ramped themselves up with Star Wars in the past few years.  Just look at the Holiday Jawas.  That was an EE exclusive as well.

With the change in management in the Star Wars brand within Hasbro, you also had to see something like this coming.  The new brand manager came from the GI Joe line, which may be somewhat on the skids, but is actively doing the troop builder thing.  Hasbro ultimately wants to make money, and they do surf message boards for ideas.   They know which figures are hot and which aren't, and they also know there's a market for army builders.  I fully expect them to do things like this if they're serious about maintaining a solid fanbase for the toy line past 2006.

I can't believe the cost discrepancy between buying one set and buying them by the case.  The cost per figure breaks down like this:



If you buy just one set of 4 figures, it comes out to ~ $8.77 per figure.

Buy the set of all 4 variations, and it's ~ $7.50 per figure.

Buy a case, and the cost goes down to ~ $6.25 per figure.

So buying in bulk is definitely an advantage for savings

The last one I saw in the store was the one I bought.  If I see another I'll be sure to pick it up Brent.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Ep3 Sneak Preview Vehicle
« on: January 4, 2005, 02:48 AM »
Hopefully they learned a lesson from Clone Wars regarding fitting figures in vehicles.  Hasbro wanted to work on some of Saesee Tiin's backstory and make him a pilot.  The bad thing was he didn't fit in the Jedi Starfighter.  Grrrrr!  If Anakin and Obi-Wan don't fit well in these things I'm going to be very disappointed.

I think it all depends on what you're looking for.  A lot of bands put some of their own stuff online.  Try googling them by band name.

Gentle Giant / Re: Bust Ups!
« on: January 3, 2005, 07:50 PM »
Already sold off my second set to Dave, hoping that I end up with one of each Vader and Maul chase, leaving me only three of each to sell off locally, something that should be pretty easy to do. 

Hey Brent, depending on what extras you get, I might be interested in taking them off you as well, if you're looking to get rid of them. Just let me know.

If you want to keep it local and non-postal, I'll keep you updated on what I have leftover from my wave 2 case, Dave.

Gentle Giant / Re: OT Gentle Giant Busts
« on: January 3, 2005, 07:49 PM »
The lowest run for a production mini-bust was 2,500 pieces, and those were all PT pieces.  The lowest exclusive PT piece is the blue Clone Trooper at 1,000 pieces.

The lowest run on an OT mini-bust is 3,500 pieces.  That record is shared by Darth Vader and the 2004 summer con exclusive Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper armor.

If given the opportunity, there are a number of pieces of musical equipment I would endorse.  They include instruments, strings, amplifiers and speakers.
