Well, I'm thinking about the TC-6 route.  Although, my custom R-3PO has black highlight paint.  TC-6 had gold highlight paint around some of the detail areas.  Drat, I hate doing fine detail painting!

So, now I have a somewhat related question...

What should I do with my custom R-3PO?  Should I retire him to my plastic figure cases?  Or some sort of droid factory diorama?  Perhaps Palpatine's apartment from EPISODE I (there was a red Protocol droid that didn't get any screen time named TC-6)?

Thanks.  It was in the final raffle, and the guys from Gentle Giant almost didn't hear me call out that I won.

I scored one, and was very lucky to do so.  The details are a little boring, though.

For me?  Being among the last 5 people to win the drawing for the blue Clone Trooper bust.  I usually never win ANYTHING in raffles!  I guess this changes that, huh?

Regarding the differences of opinion...

I think it's good to have opposing opinions.  It's healthy for the overall state of the hobby.  Not staying satisfied is how things continue to get better.  It leads to progress.

But, in the same regard, good things should be given their due props.  There are plenty of new items that were shown this weekend in Chicago that looked flat-out awesome!  Like?  The Wampa and Luke.  R-3PO.  The Dignitaries.  Bail Organa.  C-3PO and Escape Pod.  The Outlander Nightclub figures.  And even the Hoth Rebel Trooper.  These all look really nice, and I count myself fortunate for having been able to see them this past weekend in person.

Is there room for improvement?  Sure!  Do different people have varying expectations of what the line should be?  Of course.  But let's also give things their due credit when they meet or exceed expectations.

In this day and age, and with the current high quality of toys in general, we should all have high expectations for the Star Wars toy line.  However, we also need to bear in mind that not everything will be perfect.  Not everything will be precisely as we would make it ourselves.  And if you are ultimately unhappy with any product, simply don't buy it.  the almighty dollar is a powerful little guy.  All those little George's, Abe's, Alex's and Andrew's count quite a bit.  And if you continue to be expressly unhappy and continue to buy products that you argue are inferior, well, the strength of your arguments are diminshed.  But it still remains that opposing opinions are a good thing.

Now...can we all please just get along?   ;D

No problem!  I understand just how busy you must be after returning home from Chicago.  I know I've been busy as a bee!

Well, it was definitely a pleasure to meet fellow JD forumite Dustrho at Chicago.  You're a gentleman and a scholar, my friend!

Haven't seen it in the NY area yet.  I might hold off a little while to get it.  I've got all the figures in the set, after all.

Thanks for the link, folks.  I was interested at first, but $40 for breakfast is a bit steep.  There's toys at them thar show, and I'd rather spend the money on them!  ;D

I do have one hope for the line...

What do folks think of something LIKE the Trophy Series, but with Action Fleet sized vehicles?   Pack it like a big Deluxe or something, with a similarly themed basic figure.  Like....

Star Destroyer with Captain Needa
Death Star with a new Tarkin
Mon Calamari ship with a new Ackbar
A-Wing repaint with a new A-Wing Pilot

Has there been any word about a Fan Club Breakfast at Chicago?  I might want to check that out.

I saw the new Batmobile today.  I can't believe they're already putting out vehicles!
