I just bought The Thorns CD the other day.  It's a collaboration of Matthew Sweet, Shawn Mullins, and Pete Droge.  It's good stuff, and the harmornies are great!

The reason I ask is because in Wave 17 the figures are listed simply as  "(1) Luke Skywalker, (1)Darth Vader..." whereas in Wave 15 they're listed as "(2) Luke Skywalker, (2) Darth Vadar [sic] Final[/color]..." This leads me to believe that, at the very least, the Vader figures are different. Since the Luke figures were announced concurrently, I thought perhaps they might be different as well.

In any case, I've ordered both waves from NewForce and was just wondering what to expect.

I've noticed stuff like that, too.  And in some cases, the "descriptions" following the names vary on character that only have one figure in the line.  I think it may depend on who actually lists the stuff on a given site, or it might be a screwup on a list from Hasbro.

I get the feeling that the Throne Room Duel Luke & Vader are the "mystery" figures we've been speculating about.  With SAGA being consolidated into one collection, it seems likely that the Luke & Vader in that wave 17 case are probably those self-same throne room duel figures.

The guns can't be taken out of their hands whatsoever?   :-\

Only if you have the skills of a surgeon with an exacto knife.   ;D

From everything that's been seen so far, it seems that the ranked Clone Troopers aren't going to hit until the Jedi Army 3-Pack starts shipping in the new  case assortments.

They're supposed to be a general release, not exclusives.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Imperial 4-pk - how many do you have?
« on: July 6, 2003, 05:19 PM »
Three.  I may get one or two more.  The troops and droids in the set are kinda hard to pass on.  I actually like the Vader, too.

I'll most likely buy it all.  The only thing I might just leave in the package?  Yoda.  I'm not totally crazy about Yoda.

Just be patient.  I've managed to get two sets so far.  It all has come down to luck lately.  But I think they'll show pretty soon at retail.

I just saw the movie tonight.  I had been a fan of the director after seeing Trainspotting, and the clips I saw of this movie looked interesting.

It's definitely got a very stark feel to it.  Just the fact that they were able to get the streets of London as deserted as they did is remarkable.  Well, with the exception of one guy I saw on the street as Jim was wandering off from the hospital.

This movie was actually shot in 24p High-Def, like Attack Of The Clones.  But in this case, the HD look adds to the stark atmosphere.  The lower-res (than film) image quality gave it a more realistic feel.  Especially since the lighting was pretty spare, too.

The lack of music really added to the eeriness.  Silence can be truly deafening.  Especially when an infected crashes through the windows after it's been dead quiet.

The premise seemed to work for me.  Animal rights activists breaking into labs does happen.  And animal experimentation happens, too.  And given how many bio-toxins there are in the world, natural and man-made, the premise of the film seems really plausible to me.

Truth be told, I found the soliders to be more scary than the infected.  I found them far more dangerous, since their intellect remained intact, but their morals were thrown out the window.  The infected were much easier to figure out in terms of motivation.

So basically, I enjoyed it, if that wasn't obvious enough already.

Well, I thought that maybe the Clone Troopers had some kind of neck ball joint...nope!  It turns out that the Clone Trooper helmets are mounted much like the ones on the bootleg Clone Troopers.  They'll pop off if you try, but thankfully go back on pretty easily, too.
