Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?
« on: July 27, 2003, 06:56 PM »
Back to the topic at hand...the 3-packs!  I was re-doing my Clone War diorama, and inserting my 3-pack Clones into the scene.  I found that the prone or sniper pose Clone Troopers also double well as Clone Troopers who were killed in action.  Thought it was interesting, at least.

They will....but not this year.  They're still too thin in the starting pitching department.  And pitching is what wins championships.

What color are your Sakic variants?  There seemed to be some confusion about that.

Cool for you, Morg!  I just got my Atlantic City exclusives today.  WOOHOO, I got another NY Giants football player as a Sports Pick!  And what was even cooler was that Todd Mcfarlane's dad was bagging up all of the figures for everyone waiting in line!

I admire your loyalty to the 21st Century line, Jesse.  However, the stuff doesn't sell that well by me.  I saw a bunch today, and a fair ammount of it was on clearance.

And here, that doesn't bode well.  I live about half an hour away from Toys R Us's corporate headquarters.  I also live within an hours drive of as many as 10 TRU's, and that's about how far all of the stores are from the HQ.  I hope they don't give up on 21st Century, because they do some great work.

Power of the Jedi / Re: Biker Scout - Clean Version

The POTJ version of the Biker Scout was pretty good from a sculpting standpoint.  But you know what?  Hasbro can do better now.  Hopefully we can move this discussion to the SAGA forums, and it'll take form as one of the seven deluxe figures for 2004, with a Speeder Bike and some decent articulation.

Thank you!  By the way, IM coming your way.

The best/worst instance I ever saw of the ole switcheroo?  

It was the Death Star Escape Cinema Scene, from POTF2.  In it, they had two POTF2 Stormtroopers, and suspended between them by rubber bands was an EPISODE I Anakin Skywalker.  HILARIOUS!  But very lame, at the same time.

There is this possibility:  They could just be some of the EPISODE II/April 23rd era pegwarmers.  My local WalMart seems to periodically dig them up and put them back out when they're low on stock.

PLEASE!  Make this thread stop before it gets ugly, like over at that other place!

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Ships at TRU
« on: July 22, 2003, 11:24 PM »
I've only seen the blue Jedi Starfighter and AAT so far.  They ship in the same case, 3 of each per case.

I think Anakin's starfighter is in a later case assortment, along with the Geonosian fighter and Hailfire droid.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: KB Tie Fighter is Shipping
« on: July 22, 2003, 11:21 PM »
I was thinking about ordering one, but I'll just wait for it to show up in the store.  I'll save on the shipping for one, and no annoying stickers on the boxes window panels, either.

I think Hasbro is capable of the kind of quality work that 21st Century does.  BUT, I think their motivations are trying to keep the pricepoint low, as well as their costs.  Remember, the Star Wars license did not come cheap for Hasbro.  Lucas got 10% of the company as part of the agreement.

As for the Gunship going on clearance, it's not happening everywhere.  Plus, it had much higher production runs than most 21st Century vehicles.  In that regard, I think that kind of comparison is wrong.  Especially when I still see plenty of Corsairs, Lightnings and Stukas still sitting on shelves.
