Saga '02-'04 / Re: Saga A-wing

Aw crud.  I like how that thing looks.  I had myself pretty much convinced that I was good with just the POTF2 version, especially since I have a spare pilot too.  

Target exclusive?  Aw crud.

Price still too steep for me (curse you McFarlane).  Looks ok and I like the matte finish, but doesn't it seem too clean at this point?  Wasn't the fastest hunk of junk a whole lot dirtier?

How come you went with EB set first ($$$)?  Easier to get rid of?  

Not sure about the availability of the solid cases.  Dale and I ordered two from one place (linked back around page 2 of this thread) and they are sold out, right Dale?  Seem to be popular, at least with some folks, if not the other boards.  Starting to see some interest in Canuckada too.

Scott,
so, will you be buying the Barney Kubricks too? :P

there's a fine line between fishing and sitting there looking like an idiot.   :P

Sorry, don't remember the movie, but I haven't the patience for fishing, especially where I am down south.  Taking a whole day to catch your limit?  Yawn.  Got spoiled by my father-in-law (rest his soul) up north where you'd catch your limit of considerably larger fish in an hour or less.  

Too much else to do and I don't like paying people to do the work I should and can do myself.  Yard, house, car.

How about Alien vs Terminator vs Predator vs Alf vs Howard the Duck vs She Hulk vs Shania Twain in a battle royale

I'll go with Shania :-*

I'd pick the She-Hulk in that one.

Go Green or go home (thought the Shania special that was on earlier makes the picking harder) ;D

On the other hand I did use my plastic little army men as Nazis and had them fight the US and had some great battles with Naplam and other stuff. ;D

Heh, yep, lighter fluid and in the glory days, firecrackers.  Used the cheaper models for those.  Quite entertaining though I recall the fumes as being rather toxic.  Tragically, firecrackers are illegal in Canada now.

Good suggestions, but there has to be something concrete out there, maybe in one of the books.  Thanks for the answers though.

Funny thing being a tad older than you guys.  My main drawing days were pre-SW so at that time I was absolutely fascinated (and not even remotely understanding the horror of) with WWII.  All I drew were pictures of the British fighting the Nazis.  Planes, ships, tanks, infantry, submarines, scuba divers, you name it, I drew it.

Sad commentary:  were a kid to draw now what I drew then, I suspect they would be in for some serious long term counseling.  Fascination with war, particularly Nazi military machines (spent my youth building Tamiya model kits, predominantly German), weaponry.  Yup, sign him up for remedial politically correct behaviour classes.  And be careful he doesn't go postal.

I suspect SW gets a pass because it is fantasy.   Glad that it is and does.  Nice piece up there, very reminiscent of the old drawings I did.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: How Long Will Hasbro Make 3 3/4"
« on: May 21, 2003, 08:39 PM »
2005 is next movie?  3 3/4 dies after Christmas of that year.  Done, fini.  Look at this year, how's distribution around you?  Pretty crappy huh?  Same things going to happen after Ep 3 unless George realizes what the fans really want.  Ep 2 was spectacular in many respects but the love story sucked, for guys and girls.  Point of fact is I have yet to meet anyone that enjoyed that aspect.  Leia/Han style is all that is necessary.  

If Ep 3 is same, you can bet figure distribution/production will cease relatively quickly.  Maybe we'll be lucky and see it ramp up again in late summer 2006 for Christmas season.  Four months of SW figs then blech, nada.  

6" figs a la McFarlane/unleashed style but more functional/posable?  I could see it happening, though sales of Epic Force and Unleashed make me mildly skeptical.  If they can produce in lower numbers for the collector market and target that intelligently, it could well work.  Then maybe they could put out a scale Millenium Falcon for your 6" Han and Chewie figs.  Oh sure, you'd need to take the door off to get it in the house, but who'd complain about that (other than your spouse)? ;)
