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.

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.

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.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Spelling
« on: June 9, 2003, 04:12 PM »
As I mentioned in pet peeves, poor spelling is one of my personal pet peeves.  Typos are one thing, but out and out poor spelling irks me.  I even go back and edit my posts because of spelling errors and typos.

In my opinion, good spelling, grammar and general english composition skills are in short supply.  Perhaps it's the result of having a browbeating English composition professor in college, but I think it's essential to write well in order to better communicate with others.

The CGI looks a little fake, and I don't remember the Hulk being able to fly.   ::)

Actually, that's the Hulk's super-leaping ability.  His legs are powerful enough that he can jump about three miles in a single leap.

I think where Hulk may have difficulty capturing an audience, as compared with the other Marvel movies is this:  we're talking about a 10 foot plus tall green behemoth.  Not something you'd expect to see everyday.

The other Marvel movies, like Spiderman, X-Men, and X-2 have dealt with relatively normal people in terms of stature and appearance.    The apparent humanity of these characters makes them much easier to grasp.

The Hulk is a far stretch from the above situation.  Like I said, you're dealing with a giant, green monster.  Suspending your disbelief will be difficult.  But, also think about it this way:  how fixated were you on the appearance of the Cave Troll in The Lord Of The Rings:  The Fellowship Of The Ring?  Or how about the Balrog?  Were you really fixated on how good of a cgi character they were, or were you drawn into their respective roles in Fellowship?  And you can also bring up Gollum, an impressive example of a digital character done well.

I'm gonna see the movie.  I was a fan of the Hulk from when I was a little kid watching the show on CBS, and reading some of the comics, up through the animated series.  I'm going to go into the movie with an open mind, and see what Ang Lee has in store for the moviegoer.
