Saga Collection '06 / Re: TSC Recent Purchases

I got Poggle the Lesser today at Target, even though I had the old one. He is a great figure, and I couldn't pass up the new one @$5.89. Not SAGA2, but I picked up a SAGA Arena Padme over the weekend at TRU for $2.49. It came with the backround and she had the mole on her face. I just need Scorch, the Jedi, C-3PO, Jango, and at least two of those clones and I'll be done with Geonosis.

P.S.- Don't know if this is old news, or if it is just my store, but my Target had SW SAGA2 Figures on sale for $5.89. They only had Poggles, Derlins and Reikans, though. Might wanna check your Target if you want a discounted pegwarmer. :P

Those troopers look great. Maybe you should try it with the other POTF 2 trooper or the SAGA trooper. But then again, the goggled heads make a great generic trooper. I guess my only suggestion to make those great troopers better would be to give them the Hoth Trooper/Endor Rebel Rifles, and/or find a way to add the backpacks. Great job Justin, and I hope your wrist gets better!!!
I don't know what life would be like without you customizing anymore.

I went to my TRU yesterday to check for these, but they only had some Vader Helmets, Thing Feet,Frodo Bagginses Shopping carts for $45, some shelves and stuff. I did buy the last basic figure the store will ever sell. It was a 2002 Padme figure w/ mole and backround insert for $2.49. :P That was probably my last chance to get some 501st clones or Ask Aak at a decent price.  :(

Oh yeah, I forgot all about doing that. I did switch them, but I hadn't done that in a while.

Star Wars Dioramas and Displays / Re: Genosis

I made a Geonosis diorama, I tell ya! :P I can't get pics up at the moment, but I basically cut all of the structures from this styrofoam-like stuff that you get at craft stores (It's green, comes in blocks, and you're supposed to stick fake flowers in it.) I made the spire from two of those blocks, then glued those halves together. It is not very tall, but I like it. I glued down all of the other land features, then covered it with metal screening, like the kind you'd use to put outside your windows to keep bugs out. The spire did not get the screen treatment. I then covered everything in paper machette(sp.) and after it dried, I painted it a rust color. All this was done two years ago with a friend, so I'm probably leaving out some things.  :P Hope that helps, and I'll try to post pictures of it some day. Some day.   :P

No offence Justin, but these are not my favorite customs of yours. Tame Heems aide looks fantastic, though. For the Trandoshan, I like where you're going with it, but the torso gives him a funky posture. The Clone Pilot, he looks kind of odd to me, for some reason. The little tubes look kind of stretched to fit in the spot, and I don't think the colors go together to great. Just stating my opinions...

I got this about a year after it came out at a KB toys. I really like this ship. If you have the money, buy a SAGA Obi-Wan Pilot figure. He goes great with the ship. The Clone Wars version is kind of a turquois color instead of maroon, and the astro droid is yellow instead of red.

I picked up the Geonosian, Sun Fac, today. It is a very nice figure, and I wouldn't mind it if Hasbro reissued it with a new paint job, new head, and  a new torso area. I also saw Poggle(I'm gonna wait on him, even though he has a funny name) and Yoda, who I'm going to pass on.

The Freelo figure is really cool. The brighter colors really make him stand out, maybe like his party outfit or something. When I saw the first version you posted on 2-15, I glanced at the pic really quickly, so I thought he was using a double bladed lightsaber. :P   The Seperatist  Surveillance Port looks very nice. The color looks great with the Red Battle Droids. It would look great in a Seperatist Fortress, like the buildiung in Clone Wars Chapter 22, I believe. Looks great. Keep up the great work Justin!!!

Jedi Defenders coverage topped it.  :P  J/K

I actually thought Yak Faces coverage of ToyFair was pretty good. As was Galactic Hunters. I love Rebel Scums blurb about it, "Rebelscum's annual coverage of the 2006 International Toy Fair", I may be reading it wrong, but I didn't know the 2006 Toy Fair came every year.   ;D

I'm loving the clone anti-terrorist unit. I think Rykrof would look better in just another suit just like the troopers, or possibly the Bacarra helmet, but no pauldron. I think that Rykrof stands out too much from the other troopers. But, what ever floats your boat. And if I'm starting to sink it, by all means, let me know. I'm no customizer, and even if I was, I wouldn't be as good as you. I just have an imagination, and I'm just offering suggestions. Tame Heem looks awesome. He looks like he is going to some late night meeting and doesn't want to be seen or noticed. The Air Skimmer would look great landed in a Tatooine diorama or some other desert planet, maybe in a hangar. Maybe Rykrof can go on an undercover desert mission to track down the Badoo Corba in that ship?
The Scorpion Droid looks cool. The color is a little light for the Separatist droids, but now it stands out from other droids. It looks a little flimsy and skelatal, kind of like a giant buzz droid with no shell. It looks sweet. The RS-1P is awesome. It looks great. It looks like a mini Imperial Shuttle. It really fits in with the Republic flight craft, but maybe add some Republic insignias? The photonovel preview with the ship, well, from the angle anyway, looks like a Viper starship from BattleStar Galactica. The astro droid is different. I like it. Where is it from. Does it appear in the Knights of the Old Republic Video Game? Just curious. The Obi-Wan is fantastic. If they ever release an Obi-Wan Evolution set, Hasbro should take a lesson from yours so they don't skrew it up. See ya, and keep up the good work. Sorry for the really long post.

Collecting while being a teenager is tough these days with all the exclusives, hard to find figures, and elusive army builders, and the fact we can't drive. It's hard, but thanks mostly to my parents, who are a big helping hand in getting me around, I have that collection.

Thanks a lot!!! I got the images up!!! ;D
