30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 30AC Wave 3 - Tatooine

   I hate to derail your wonderful Moisture Vaporator conversation, but I have a question for those of you who have opened your Biggs Darklighter figure(s): have any of you had paint issues on Biggs' jacket and sleeves? Both of my Biggs figures had a noticeable shade of blue on the back of the jacket and the arms. I'm thinking that someone at the Hasbro factory dyed the cape for the figure and packaged it before it was dry, but I picked these two figures up at different stores and they both have the problem. So, if you have this problem and/or know how to fix the problem, please let me know. I'll also try to provide pictures of this later.

Picked up two more Storm Troopers at Target this evening.

I am currently at 3 and not quite sure how many I want in the long run.

Tuesday: Picked up Death Star Trooper and Rebel Honor Guard at Wal-Mart, as well as a second Biggs Darklighter (Wave 3) at Target.

   Dedicated Star Wars rooms?!? Dedicated Star Wars basements?!? You guys are very lucky. My Star Wars collection currently resides in my bedroom. Unfortunatly, it has become more of a situation where I happen to sleep in my Star Wars room (If I can find space, that is)

Well, the concept Faie design was used in a single comic, but not for very long and he isn't named as Faie. He appears in the issue of Republic set during the Seige of Saleucami, and can be found in one panel of the Republic command center in the issue in which Oppo Rancisis is killed. The comic is Republic Issue #75. Hope this helps.

Hey Mr. Corobb! I may be able to answer a few of those questions.

1. Here's a link to Faie without armor. I believe that these are his troopers.
2. I'm going to say that Deviss had troopers that did not look like 327th soldiers at the Battle of Orto since Deviss was seperate from Bly's unit at that time.
3. The 182nd, as Angry Ewok said, is only mentioned by name and is never seen in any sources.
4. So far, I do not believe anything has been reveled about Plo Koons clone trooper unit(s). I like to think that he commanded the 442nd Siege Battalion. As for Captain Jag, he was in charge of the 127th Gunship Wing.

I hope all of this info helps you out!

   I really enjoy reading Photo Novels, but I rarely give the writer feedback. My main reason is that I don't have the time.
   My second reason is that most of the time I read the PN, enjoy it, but do not want to leave a one or two word post saying "Good job!" or "Fantastic!".
   Lastly, I do not really like critiquing something that I know nothing about making. To me, critiquing a PN would be like critiquing a novel or comic book. I can't draw or write well, and if I'd begin critiquing a PN I'd feel bad, as I've never put any time or work into making one myself.
   So, for all you PN writers/photographers on the boards, just know that I am reading and enjoying most, if not all, of the photo novels posted. Keep up the good work, and I apologize for the lack of feedback on my part.  

Picked up two more of these guys at a Target in Durham, so I'm set with my four unless I see some on clearance.

It was definately not you, Darth Broem. I noticed that all of the Han Solos at a local Target had a wierd paint job on their heads.

I now have two of these guys, and I am hoping to get another two to make a squad of four.

   I picked up the Ep. III Clone Trooper and 2 Ep. II Clone Troopers this morning. These figures are nothing special, but they should be nice to army build. I really want to find some of the Seperatist characters next.

   I picked up two of the Snow Troopers and IG-88 this morning at Target. The $11.99 price is definately worth paying for those two figures. I wasn't so sure about the other four characters for that much money.
   The Snow Trooper is a very nice figure. I like the bulkiness of the armor and helmet and I enjoy the super articulation. The cloth skirt is a very nice touch, and it's something that would've been nice on the Galactic Marine figure. The only downsides I've found with this figure is the lack of a bigger gun for this "ground assault" trooper and not being able to get a good firing pose out of him.
   IG-88 is definately one of my favorite figures, and the best Empire Strikes Back figure made so far. The level of detail is amazing on this figure. The knife and pistol are nice additions, and the articulation is really good for this character. My problems: the pistol does not fit in the holster and I feel like I'm going to break this guy at one of his joints.
   Overall, these Vintage remake figures seem better than last year's figures and I cannot wait to pick up the other four figures in the series.
