Saga '02-'04 / Re: Jedi Luke's Robe: Black or Brown?
« on: June 11, 2003, 05:56 PM »
It's a tough question to answer.  Because we never really get to see it in any kind of daylight.  I would think that it's probably black, to go along with Luke's outfit in general.  It may just be very sandy and dusty from his journey to Jabba's palace, and that might account for the discoloration.  Perhaps a picture of it will surface in the Hyperspace section soon?  Lucas is opening up a big photo archive for everyone to check out.

I refer back to the tried and true axiom "A clean desk is the sign of a sick mind".  :)  So, by applying that theory to my own desk, I think I might be the sanest person in the world.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Last CD You Bought
« on: June 11, 2003, 05:39 PM »
Just got the new Deftones CD a week or so ago.  Pretty good.  It's not White Pony 2, though.  While that was a great CD, they've got the challenge of trying to top it this time around.  I'm gonna give this one a chance to breathe.

Conventions / Re: Fan Club & Columbus Breakfast

Well, they may have one planned for Comic Con.  Might be worth checking into it, since the Fan Club will be there in San Diego.

I only wish they had the Silver Boba Fett's on hand for Wizard World in Philly a couple of weeks ago, and could do a similar event.

Some of the Spiderman figures from Spiderman Classic wave 1 & 2 are still lingering around some KayBee stores.  The red & blue Spidey's in both of those series are pretty good.

As for the Spiderman Classic line, I've got...

SERIES 1
Spiderman (red & blue)
Spiderman (black & white)
Venom

SERIES 2
Spiderman
Daredevil
Rhino

And the carboard backed Spiderman line...

SERIES 2
Hobgoblin

SERIES 4
Venom

SERIES 5
Morbius

I think I might go back and get the Lizard and Doc Ock.  There doesn't seem to be enough reason for me to go back and get every Spiderman.

Power of the Force 2 / Re: Carded Spirit of Obi Wan
« on: June 10, 2003, 02:37 PM »
There were two different mail-away packages for the spirit of Obi-Wan.  There's the more common plain, white package.  And then, there's a black package with an image of Obi-Wan on it.  That's the one Obi-Robz is referring to.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Best Website to buy figs?

I'm a big fan of http://www.yestertoys.com.  The prices are very fair, and the selection is okay.

It seemed signifigant enough to bring it out into the open.  For further clarification on the subject, refer to this page: http://motlc.wiesenthal.com/pages/t072/t07216.html.

just made the migration. woot!

Dude, has anyone ever commented that your username is kind of tasteless?  For those who don't know, Sonderkommando's were the Jews in concentration camps that the Nazi's and SS impressed to work the crematoriums.  I hate to take this whole thing off-topic, but the word is frankly kind of offensive.

You might want to buy a Dr. Doom, and  ASAP.  He was always packed kind of short in the cases.  I think the most I saw of Doom from any case was two figures.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Card Molesters should be shot!!!
« on: June 9, 2003, 07:59 PM »
I can feel the pain of carded collectors.  I used to collect both carded and loose up until the launch of the SAGA line.  Now, I just collect loose.

The bigger issue I see is that new figures are so scarce, that I'm happy just to see them.  Card condition aside, I'm more interested in finding something new  right now.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Imperial 4-Pack is fan-freakin-tastic!!!
« on: June 9, 2003, 07:56 PM »
I consider myself a semi-serious Imperial army builder.  This pack is a great thing for folks like myself.  I even like the Vader!

While these are all kit-bash figures, I like what they did.  It's 3 army builders plus a decent Darth Vader, and signifigant accessories for $20.  You can't get that kind of value from 4 basic SAGA figures.

« on: June 9, 2003, 07:53 PM »
I use a product similar to this one: http://www.officedepot.com/ddSKU.do?level=SK&id=643923.  It's compressed air in a can.  It's pretty good at getting dust out of the small creases and hard-to-reach places on figures.

I started collecting this line after Series 1 came out.  It's quite possibly some of the best work Toy Biz has ever done.  Here's what I've got:

SERIES 1
Captain America
Hulk with articulated hands
Toad
Iron Man
Iron Man (gold variant)

SERIES 2
Human Torch
The Thing
Prince Namor, The Submariner
Doctor Doom
Doombot (just scored him finally, last week)

SERIES 3
Wolverine
Magneto
Thor
Ghost Rider
Daredevil

BEST OF
Iron Man-Stealth Armor
Hulk-blue pants & work shirt

As for the maskless Wolverine, I haven't even seen one in person at a ridiculous show price.  I also passed on The Thing in his trenchcoat.
