Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?

Will these still mix in well with the Preview Clone?

Anyone worried that the paint jobs on the different colored Clones might not be too great?


Good questions Chewy.  I just got the three pack during the week.  And right now, I'm comparing them to one of my preview Clone Troopers.

Obiviously, there's the cosmetic paint differences, with the Preview Clone Trooper being dirty, and the 3-Pack Clones being clean.  Aside from that, one of the biggest differences?  A slight paint difference on the helmet (on the mouth grill, and a ring around the top/back), backplate, and stomach sections of the armor.  The preview Clones have some grey detail paint on those sections, while the 3-pack Clones are all white.  I think they're still fairly interchangeable.  But I think the clean Clone Troopers will fit in better in dioramas with the Clone Trooper Pilot and Clone Trooper (red trim) because those versions are also clean.

I'm especially happy that they went with the three Jedi they chose for the second Jedi Council scene.  The speculation had been that we'd get a previously released council member and two new ones.  Releasing three all-new Jedi Council members is a good move.

I was seriously thinking about joingin KebCo's One of every figure club.  But, it looks like things have changed, and new stuff is finally hitting retail.

It certainly looks decent enough.  I was looking at it in the copy of the Insider I got yesterday.  The sculpt looks alright, as do most of the accessories.  The lightsaber looks a little weird to me, though.

If I were a serious pursuer of variations, I'd buy three:  one to open, and one of each variant to keep carded.  It's almost impossible to judge how common or rare a variation is while a figure is still shipping from Hasbro.

I've always been much more of a Marvel fan.  Especially when it comes to the X-Men and several of their offshoot books.  I was also reading Thor, The Avengers, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Captain America...the list just goes one.

I read a few DC titles, but not much.  The Flash and Green Lantern were pretty much the extent of it.  I never really could understand the appeal of Superman, and I guess I missed the boat on Batman.

The set I got are all white.  Later sets are slated to be versions with rank markings.

Awesome!  We get the rest of the Jedi Council from EPISODE I!  And EPISODE II Nute gunray, Shu Mai, and Passel Argente with the second war room set.  This rocks!

Other Collectibles / Re: Quesion about my E2 basic lightsaber
« on: June 27, 2003, 05:43 PM »
That, or they used the same tooling as in 1999.  Your 1999 stamped lightsaber very well could've been made in 2002.  However, Hasbro is probably unlikely to change a machine tool just to update the date stamp if they're happy with the existing design.

Well, there are some exceptions.  Oppo Rancisis is markedly different from most other aliens.  So was Yarael Poof.  I think Pablo Jill also has a fairly different anatomy, too.

Sounds like you need a squeegee!  At least I could make you laugh, Morg.  Can't do anything about the monitor though.

I'ma confessed sunglasses junkie.  I won't even go outside without a pair.  I saw the Smith glasses at Suncoast, but they were far too small for my bulbous melon head.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What else do you collect?
« on: June 27, 2003, 12:05 AM »
In terms of the other things I collect, I've gotta give props to Toy Biz this year.  They've really improved from their early days of hackneyed Marvel representations.  Just look at some of the Marvel Legends line, and the LOTR figures.  I'd argue that the LOTR Prologue Elf is one of the best basic figures I've ever gotten from any line.  And Sauron is right up there as a Deluxe.

And as for Marvel Legends, can you believe the fan base they've built?  It's incredible!
