Saga Collection '06 / Re: Battle of Geonosis Wave

hey Jesse I went in slow mo for most of the battle scenes too and it is awesome to see all the little details that you miss when it's in regular speed.  But did you notice on Utapau the clone that jumps up on the crab changes.  you see a behind shot of him right before he runs up on it and he has these extra little do dads on his back that he doesn't have after he shoots the crab droid and turns.  on to my thoughts about this wave.  Articulation is seriously lacking in these newer waves.  I thought at first that some of these were just left overs from the last bits of the OTC waves, but this doesn't seem to be the case anymore.  it pisses me off that the other day I bought at Target the latest wave of Marvel Legends for $6.89 and they have what 30 some points of articulation and a pretty killer paint job, while these newer wave of star wars might be lucking to get 8 pionts of articulation and they're more expensive. >:(  sorry about the ranting.

jesse, couldn't agree more.  i've put a halt on doing my custom ARC's until I see if they actually release these guys.

loving that wookie.  that bith is just crazy awesome.  must be a pain stretching the bodysuit over that melon of his though.  only suggestion would be to change the belt to something a little more original.  there is a BBi, i think, figure that has belt pouches that somewhat resemble the one that of either jango or boba or both i really don't remember.  just a suggestion.  the new Kala is definately my favorite version of him.  the unhooded version reminds my of that last scene in Beattlejuice, when he takes the number from the head shrinker.  is he sportin' a blaster in the hooded version?  i think that makes him a little more rougish from the typical jedi, i like.

brian you seem to be having the problem as i have.  although a couple of days ago i stumbled across a mystique, that was the first time i saw her at retail.

jeez man i don't even know where to begin.  hasbro should have a contract on their desk just waiting for you to stop by and sign it.  you're ideas and the fact that you have the skill to follow through is a real treat for all of us.  great work.

jesse/pmundheim all good ideas, it has always bugged me a little and one of the reasons I don't really like the EU as much anymore is that there is so much potential there that they should elaborate that they just don't.  they seem so compacted into trying to connect everything and everyone to each other that they don't eleborate enough on what's already there, instead the fans are left to wing it on there own and guess at what some of these basically background nobodies are.  I like the battlefront games because you can have all sorts of troops basically in any and every enviro.  sorry about the rant, it's just that the AT-AT driver was my very first intro to the star wars universe and now that we've seen even more diversity and what the clones are capable of it kind of makes you think what the imperial era troops are capable of.  also upfront apology while i go on just a little bit more.  could the AT-AT driver be more of a pilot for the galactic/imperial marines flying/driving the vehicles within that military group?  while the T.I.E. fighter pilot is the naval pilot.  we see in ESB  they send in the snowtroops/galactic marine in.  isn't that the US marine forces right there first one in last ones out?  once again sorry about the rant.

while i here what you're saying jesse, i gotta have me imperial officers.  I have 4 veer's's'ss, spelling!?!?!? :-\, i liked the texture on Ozzel/Tarkin, and while they really don't seem to match up with their movie counterparts as far as the uniform coloring goes i just kind of chalk that up to different officer rank have different color uniform's.  also while a removable hat would be great everybody know that hasblow would do a halfa$$ed job at it and would wind up sucking so badly it would be warming the pegs.  now a good option would just to pack in 2 different heads 1 with hat 1 w/out hat.  also a lot of people have been saying that most of these were left overs from the OTC era so i guess i can forgive the lack of articu.  These being left overs would also explain the speed at which these seem to be coming out in some areas.

blackdog I always kind of wondered the same thing.  i could see them operating something beside the AT-AT maybe even as a spacepilot, although that would kind of take away from name AT-AT driver.  but then again as we've seen in ROTS the snowtrooper isn't neccisarily bound as just a "snow suit" but more as a hostile enviro suit, that being said shouldn't his classification be changed maybe Imperial Marine.  Should the AT-AT driver be classified in a broader term ground vehicle pilot or some such?  i guess it's just the way they I.D. them back then.

hell i'll join in.  i figure i need to lose about 20 so while everybody laughs at how pathetic that is, you guys don't know how lazy my ass is to actually do it, or how low my will power is to run to the snack machine.  i hit my 10 years since i graduated H.S. this June so even though i might not even go to a reunion i'd at least like to get back to the weight i was back then.  so is there a definate date as to when we start?

picked up 2x veers and 1 derlin last night.  Anton the armor sticks on fine no problems of it falling off, un like the carbonite block that can't stay up a damn.  it looks a little weird without it, but i don't think it takes away from the figure in the least.  my only complaint i suppose is the holster and blaster.  blaster way too small, but i suppose they gave him that one to fit the small holster and it bends the blaster while in it.  and maybe it's just mine but when i put the helmet over the hat, the helmet kind of flairs out on the sides.  i think it'd been better with a chin strap.

damn fritz i just saw the dead stormie & tie pilot, those are just mind blowing.  i'd love to see a pic of how you have them all displayed.  and the door gunner, did you hollow out an old at-at driver helmet and stick in a clone?

you know glassman i don't thing i've ever replied on any of your stuff :-[, that being said your work has always really impressed me.  skill, paint apps, creativity, and execution are all qualities that one day i hope i can achieve at your level.  now then a question have you ever thought of putting the clones/stormie in an evolution kenner styled box?  not sure if that'd even be possible or worth the effort just something i thought would be a little intresting to see.
