Nice choices on the recently announced Cantina Wave, Hasbro.  Here are 10 others that are good choices:

Baniss Keeg - Duros.  This one can be something of a kitbash, since Hasbro has already produced Ellors Madak, a similar looking Duros.




Bom Vimdim




Hem Dazon - Arcona.   This one is important to a lot of collectors.  It's one of the most distinctive aliens in the Cantina, especially since this is the first alien we see in the famous Mos Eisly Cantina scene.




Dice Ibegon.  Once again, this is one of the most visually distinctive aliens in the Cantina.




Hrchek Kal Fas - Saurin.  This is a character that is somewhat reminiscent of Bossk.  Once again, this is a character that can probably be made from kitbashed parts.




M'iiyoom Onith




Solomahal




Trinto Duaba




Melas




Danz Borin

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Episode III line....April 2nd, 2005
« on: July 29, 2004, 03:33 PM »
April '05 is gonna be expensive.  Between The ROTS line and Celebration 3 AND taxes, I don't know how I'm going to get through that month.

I ordered Wave 2 from Star Wars Shop, and this is the case breakdown they gave me:

1 Luke Skywalker
1 Han Solo
2 Darth Vader
2 Yoda
2 Lando Calrissian

I finally resigned myself to opening some of these.  Basically, I'll have three categories of what I'm doing with the VOTC figures.

OPENERS
These are just too good to keep in the bubble.  The poseability, softgoods and overall detail demand that these figures need some space to breathe.  Besides, I need to retire my Cantina Han's!

MOMC
I had given up on being a MOMC collector with the advent of the SAGA/EPISODE II line.  However, the VOTC line is packaged SO WELL that I have to keep a set in pristine condition, and these won't be leaving their clamshells anytime soon.

AUTOGRAPH FODDER
This is more of a personal slant on my collection, but where applicable, I like to get the actors to sign the figures.  I already got Carrie Fisher to sign a Princess Leia courtesy of a great friend of mine who attended Comic Con.  It's too bad that she will probably be THE ONLY actor from the ANH wave that will sign something, since Mark Hammil doesn't sign merchandise, Harrison Ford is among the Holy Grail of Star Wars actors, and Alec Guiness can't sign anything since unfortunately he's pushing up the daisies!

I'm more hopeful that I can get everyone in the ESB and most of the ROTJ waves to sign those figures.  But seriously, who do you get to sign a Stormtrooper?!

Be those things as they may, all of the autographed figures are going to have to come out of the clamshells to get signed.  At that point, I'll be sealing those right back up.

6605
I put them in plastic baggies (acid free), and then I box those all up.  I don't have anywhere near the room to display what I'd like to, so a lot of stuff is boxed and in storage.

6606
Bad news for you then.  Randy Johnson shot down a trade to the Dodgers within the last couple of days.  The D-Backs were so sure it was complete that they went to him and asked him to waive his no-trade and he declined!  He is saying Yankees or bust now.  Funny thing is, a kid from my high school who's in the Dodgers system was supposed to be part of the deal.

I don't know if I like the Yankees trading for him.  Sure, the guy is a gamer.  But the D-Backs want Jorge Posada, who is arguably the second best catcher in baseball.  I don't know if I'd do it.  It would be the first instance of the Yanks trading one of their big home-grown players.  It would almost be like them trading Jeter, to put it in perspective.

Does anyone find that the paint apps on the Jedi Council Scene 1 Ki-Adi Mundi is not so good?

JD Sports Forum! / Re: NFL Preseason '04

Yeah, they've signed him!  I have to admit I'm genuinely surprised.  But I just saw a satellite feed of him being interviewed about things.  Apparently he hasn't been training much over the past month, since he's suffering from a groin pull.

6609
You should add the Corprate Alliance Tank to the mix as well.

That is one of the cooler vehicles that was never made.  In fact, I think Grievous's ground vehicle might be a modified version of this vehicle.

They probably have some players lined up already.  I would wonder if they can get a replacement into the lineup fast enough.

Well, it seems that if they put Hermi Odle in the deluxe line, we might have a better shot of getting him.

What are you guys thinking about Ricky Williams in NFL 10?  I'm really crious about whether or not it's going to come out, or if he's going to get dropped from the line.
