You crack me up Mister Palpatine.   ;)

If you can do a boil-n-pop, then you can do just about anything with customizing.  But of course if you don't want to, that's ok too.   :)


I would, but I barely have enough money for collecting, so customizing is out of the question. I do have a bag of fodder from figures who broke in some way and I've replaced, but those are my only extra figures I can customize with.  :(

I'm not the 12" person, but that is top notch. One question though, do you make real lightsaber blades for your figures, or no?

All of the custom Rykrofs look really good, especially what some of you have done with different heads. I was thinking about taking a picture of my Rebel Soldier from Endor, but that would be cheating since it is Hasbros and not mine.  :P  Believe me though, that's the best I can do.

Wow. I like what I'm seeing. He looks really good. I suggest painting his hair gray, because I believe he is older and the picture that I have of him has him with gray hair.

It's the new special feature thing on the front page. You can't miss it.  :P
(If you are blind though, then I am sorry, because there is a 99.9876134% chance that I offended you.)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Wal-Mart "Early Bird" Exclusive

I found one of these at my local Wal-Mart, and it has been $19 since January. I really want one of these sets, but not above $10. I just don't think that the figures are worth it.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: I got 35 clone troopers

Wow. My army is dwarfed by most of yours. I have between 110 and 120 clones and stormtroopers. And two gunships and a TIE fighter, but still. I think the only armies that I'm appaulled at are the ones where the pictures have like a thousand clones in them(Overkill) and they just keep going and going and going and going and it is just one big sea of white. Who really needs that many clones. Now when people have clones and stormies set up like in the Emporors arrival scene, no matter how many they have, that is just cool.

I love REbelscums vote for Dustin thing, bah!!! If that happens, then Rebel Scum will have control of the universe.

I've since picked up a few more vehicles, and I'm hoping to aquire this years gunship, the ROTS gunship, and the ARC-170 to complete my little Coruscant battle. I made the ships removable from the wires/rubber bands in case, you know, my inner child busts out. Hey, come on, I'm only 14. (Just don't tell anyone at my school.   :P)

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Battlestar Galactica...who's watching?

I really enjoyed last nights episode. It was fantastic. I think that it was kind of a let down that the Cylons just left Caprica during the Marines' raid, but then again, who would want to see the Marines pinned down for a whole hour and a half episode. I probably missed some things, as I was flipping between Galactica and VH1's I Love Toys, so I don't know. I do not know why, but my favorite part of last nights episode had to have been the New Caprica segment, and the surrender to the Cylon Army/Fleet. The Cylon Soldiers marching through the camp was awesome. My only complaint is that we have to wait all the way to October to find out what happens. The next season better be worth the wait.  >:(

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Vehicles: Do You Collect/Display Them?
« on: March 11, 2006, 11:14 PM »
I mostly get prequel vehicles to go with my preference of prequel figures. Yes, I do like the prequels more than the OT. I only have one OT vehicle, which is a TIE fighter with the ginormous wings. I hope to eventually get Vaders TIE, the Falcon, an X- and Y- wing, an AT-AT and a snowspeeder. I developed ways to hang my vehicles on my shelves, so that makes room for figures below, and it looks like they're flying/dogfighting. I use the little rubber bands and twist ties that the vehicles are secured with in their packages to hang them up, and I do it so they are easily removeable, but stay secure and in place. Along with the above OT vehicles, there are several ROTS vehicles I missed and future PT vehicles I'd like to pick up. I believe that the figure line would be nothing if it weren't for the vehicles, playsets, and deluxe lines.

Oh boy, HunterofthePegs, you're really getting down to business with these guides to the Republic/Empire. Clone Cmmander, you really did a good job getting these guides started. If I had the time, I'd love to do some of these guides for the Separatists.

Wow, very good. Short, but very short and straight to the point. Also, that's a great picture of Thrawn.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Major Battles Of The Republic And Empire
« on: March 11, 2006, 10:46 PM »
Wow, that realy covers just about all of the major battles. I can only think of three other important ones: Jabiim(Clone Wars volume 3), Mon Calimari(Clone Wars Series one and Clone Wars adventures #1), Battle of Rhen Var(Battlefront 1 and Clone Wars Video Games), and the Battle of Thule (Clone Wars video games.) I am very curious about where you get your information, like for Geonosis, were did you find the casualty numbers. That was interesting, and on Kamino, I thought there were more than three ARC Troopers deployed. Well anyway, great job!

Wow, a lot of you are putting a lot of well researched points into this argument. I have to agree a lot with the terrain argument. The Gungans were just as primitive, or perhaps a little more, than the Ewoks. Even though they were a diversion, I think they lost because of fighting on an open field with little to no cover, and combined with the fact that they had too much faith in their sheilds and were outnumbered, outgunned,and lacked the element of surprise. The Ewoks on the other hand, had a lot of cover at their disposal. Even though the scout walkers could blast right through the trees, plants and other obstacles, the stormtroopers did not know their way around the forest as well as the Ewoks. The Ewoks winning is very likely.

Now if an AT-AT were there, I believe the battle would,ve gone differently. I could see an Ewok log-swingy trap-thingy being used on an AT-AT, and the logs just bouncing off the armor. If I were the Imperial commanding officer in that engagement, I would've had my men form up by the doorway and not spread out. Ewoks had no explosives or any extremely lethal weapons, and the Rebel Commando's explosives were for blowing the bunker, so the Imperials should've used their ranged weaponds, the cover of the doorway, and the cleared space to their advantage. Just my thoughts.
