Power of the Jedi / Re: Biker Scout - Clean Version
« on: June 2, 2003, 01:30 PM »
Early shipments were clean for us, later were dirty.  I grabbed a couple of clean, but traded one away, so I only have one remaining.  

I would like to have many clean versions (hint, troop builder set) for the shuttle diorama, but not too be.  Otherwise I just imagine the Emperor zapping all the scouts that couldn't be bothered to clean up for inspection.  Terrible mess he makes.

Very wise move Hung.  I must admit to being surprised how cheap things are right now.  Had I known that a year ago, well, not much would have changed, but some things I would have held off on.

Nope, no way I'm parting with more Canadian Pesos for this.  Like Brad, I'm hoping it will make its way to me eventually.  Like Snively up there if the raid and more lightsaber duel footage go up, that is the ultimate in betrayal.  Put the crap on the site along with good stuff, but put out the great, exciting footage with the DVD's.  Those scenes better show up in the 10-box set.   >:(

OK, assuming a relatively to scale (skiff comparison), no power F/X type sail barge, opening side panels, removable roof, etc.  What is this thing going to cost.  

With a shuttle running at around $100-150 US, about the same, maybe a little more?  Call it $125?  What do you think?

I'll vote for the Imperials as well.  Multipose snowtroopers would be uber cool.  

Biker scouts would be a nice addition to my little Ewok barbeque diorama.  Bunch of biker scouts roasting Ewoks on a spit with the heat coming out of the back of the speeder bikes.  Removable helmet biker scouts would be very helpful for that ;) ;D

Thanks for the words TopJedi.  In time, I may begin.  So many other things of interest though (Kubricks, Master Replicas, back filling the Riddell helmets) and only so much cash ;)

You are however wrong about Ewoks.  Vile little things leaving fur everywhere, eating cats.  Terrible house guests they are.  All Ewoks must die.  Simple as that. ;D

What benefit would it have if you did?  Would you get some satisfaction out of it?  Would there be a point other than you can?  

The deal is that Philip is responsible for the site and as such, legally responsible for the content.  I do not agree with lots of what RS is doing right now, but the content that may be deemed offensive, whether you think so or not, is Philip's responsibility.  That the words "Japs" and "Nazis" are deemed contextually offensive or a liability risk is not at all unusual.  Is it correct?  Nope, not necessarily, but hey, run your own site, make your own rules.  When the Japanese veterans society lawyer sends you a letter regarding the "harmful content" of your site, you can take the risk associated with your decision.  Similarly when the Jewish community gets up in arms (or the non-Nazi German community is offended) you can bear the brunt of their anger.  

Are those events happening?  Nope, I seriously doubt it, but in the litigenous US they easily could.  The point is not what you find offensive, it's what the site owner finds offensive.  Try the same stunts at boards you remain fond of and see how long your behaviour is tolerated.  

That said, I'm not much of a fan of RS and haven't been for quite a while.  It's been far too juvenile for this old man for too long.  It's sad, but I've never seen the point of pouring gasoline on an open flame.

Vintage bad, tree pretty.  Oh, sorry, Buffy-ism there.  

No to vintage, at least not yet.  I'm sort of hanging around stalking the forum but really know diddly squat about the fits.  Some I genuinely don't like, but since I broke my completionist ways, that's not such a big problem.  My main worry is simply getting taken on ebay.  Given that ebay functions on a competitive basis, I'm not likely to be able to score any superb bargains.  Oh well, perhaps in time.  I suspect I would never own a vintage Ewok though. ;)

Other Collectibles / Re: Installment Plan at Master Replicas
« on: June 2, 2003, 01:28 AM »
Cool!!!  Now I won't have to sell my bodily fluids to afford one!!! ;D :D ;)

Be happy you can, I have to give mine for free ;)

Hmm, installment plan eh?

I wanted to be Mara Jade when I joined CSW but it was taken so I went with her ship instead and I used it ever since because it was never taken anywhere else except (where I am LadyStar because she's a character I drew back when I was a little girl - think Storm/Catwomen and you know what she looks like as well as her super powers  :) ).

That sounds pretty cool for a character.  Send me some pics for my daughter ;)

Morgbug - Morg is taken from Borg, a mentality some of my fellow moderators and I were accused of having at a site I used to moderate at.  Moderator + Borg = Morg.  Bug is in relation to my career of choice (yes, I said choice) - entomologist, ergo, bug.

I won't even comment about Bob's age, because I was always told to treat your elders with respect.   ;)

Oh, puhlease ::)

Sorry, but there just aren't that many of them :P

And for that reason alone, Jersey MUST prevail.  Well, that and I'll feel fully justified starting a thread with all of Matt's quotes regarding the Ducks and the Lakers :-*
