Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Jedi Council sets 3 & 4
« on: May 31, 2004, 01:41 PM »
The set looks really nice put together.  I'm curious about a couple of things:

First, which Saesee Tiin did they use?  I'm sincerely hoping it's the Clone Wars sculpt with articulated legs, no gloves and intact horn.  That's a great figure, and this would prove to be a definitive version of the character.

Coleman Trebor seems to be in the dark.  Perhaps intentionally.  Only time will tell on this one.

Then there's the Stass Allie/Adi Gallia issue.  I think Adi Gallia is the seated one, and Stass Allie is standing.  This would be good since we already have a standing Adi Gallia, and I don't recall seeing Stass Allie actually in the Jedi Council chamber.  This is a wait and see situation for me.

I'll be somewhat disappointed if this really is the Gunner Station Vader.  There's also the possibility it could be Vader from the Complete Galaxy set.

My choice for this Vader, had it been a rehash, would have been the CommTech Vader.  That's the Vader I've currently got in my TIE Fighter.  It's got softgoods all around, and his hands are even posed as if they're on the control yoke of his TIE Fighter.

Despite the saying, everything old is NOT new again.  It's still the same, old stuff.

The bit in Jesse Falcon's article about the Balrog is pretty cool.  I might have to explore what NECA's got coming.


Definition:  A bathroom user who seems to linger around forever.
Could spend extended lengths of time in front of the mirror or sitting
on the pot.  An UNCLE TED makes it difficult to relax while
on the crapper, as you should always wait to drop your load when
the bathroom is empty. This benefits you as well as the other
bathroom attendees.

We have a variation on an Uncle Ted at work.  The variation on it is even worse, in a way.  This guy doesn't hang out in the bathroom.  No, he makes it even worse by hanging around for WAY too long in the locker room for our gym.  CREEPY.

Let's see....Oh yes!

I got to see these in person over the weekend.  NICE!   The Terror Dogs are very cool.  Stay Puft is just huge, but dang, Slimer actually glows!

Is the Han really that decent though Nick?  It's looked really bad in images I've seen.

This is the first posts I've noticed of anyone finding this set...  I'll have to keep my eyes peeled.  Still unsure about buying it but if the Han's decent enough I'd bite.

The head sculpt appears to be the same as the POTJ Han Solo-Bespin Capture.  It's a reasonably good Han Solo, but it isn't worth $20.

Most Unleashed cards take a little bit of a beating out on the pegs.  I think the only way you'll get a really good carded sample is to pull it out of the case yourself.

And I'll be, the Obi-Wan cloth robes actually look GOOD.

Funny, since we were just talking this afternoon about how he was too "poofy" looking.  Of course, that was the loose figure we were discussing.  I'm not real surprised to see that Obi-Wan looks a lot better packaged in the bubble, since the bubble squishes down his poofy cloth robe all nice and snug against him, which I agree looks much better.

But I still think he looks like a giant burnt marshmellow when he's loose.  Might have to find some of that glue folks use, to calm his cloak down just a tad.

I'm still not convinced on the Leia.  I think I need to see her up close and personal to pass final judgement.  Something about her just looks a little off to me.  We'll see.  Still better than most/all of the other ANH Leias though...

I think there might be a non-glue solution to this.  The answer?  A needle and thread.  It might be possible to strategically tie-down the robe to Obi-Wan's body using some thread.

The only new sign of articulation I saw in the Toyfare spread is around C-3PO's midsection.  Right in that area where the wiring trunk meets the upper body is where I think it is.

The new Toyfare shows C-3PO better, but it's not totally clear how he's articulated.

JD Sports Forum! / Re: The NBA Playoffs!

The Nets definitely had heart, but tonight they got their asses handed to them.  They should've won this series at home on Sunday, but they just didn't capitalize on the momentum of last Friday's Triple OT game.  They really need a legitimate big man, and as long as they keep winning, they're not going to get one unless they want to shell out some serious bank.

I wouldn't say that Kidd was completely responsible for the loss.  Everyone in the NBA knows that the Nets live by the fastbreak, and they got shutdown that way.  Plus, they're shooting percentages need to improve.

Byron Scott definitely wasn't adding to the team.  With the Nets success of the past couple of years, it's been the assistant coaches who have carried Byron the entire time.  In the 2002-03 season, it was Eddie Jordan who was pretty much running the team.  This season, it was still the assistants who were running the team.  Kidd ran the team on the floor, and Frank ran the practices.  It took firing Byron Scott for people to realize this.

Please don't.  It's unbecoming.  Although I admit it's rather nifty that we won't have to buy Star Cases for these.
