Saga Collection '06 / Re: Clone Wars repaint of ARC-170 3 3/4
« on: August 22, 2006, 02:30 PM »
Found this at GH:



There is also a Star Wars Transformers version in the works as well:



Again, I don't think that a 3 3/4 inch version is out of the question.

I seem to remember seeing a Titanium picture from ComicCon that had a Clone Wars re-paint of the ARC-170, so I don't think that it's an unreasonable request to see it in 3 3/4 scale.  They released the Republic Gunship in both Titanium and 3 3/4 this year, so why not?

Boy, where to begin.  I guess the first thing I need to do is blame BrentS for everything! ;)  If it wasn't for him bringing that Animated Clone Wars Yoda into work I would have never paid attention to collecting figures.  Then he just had to bring in the Dagobah Yoda and Luke from the OTC line.  I was hooked after that.

I had my small collection of Vintage figures and vehicles that I had socked away to show my kids once they were older.  I was fine with that.  Life was good.  My wife was happy.

Then BrentS showed me a bunch of loose figures that he had and a checklist of all the carded/boxed stuff he had.  When I took it upon myself to look these lines up on ebay, that was the end of it.  Within about 6 months, I had almost the complete EP1 and Saga figures (sans errors/variants), most of the Clone Wars figures and vehicles, was starting in on the OTC line and was licking my chops at the release of ROTS.  Midnight Madness is something I won't soon forget.  A few grand and a couple fights with the wife and here I am today, the proud owner of about a dozen or so 1.5 cubic foot boxes filled with carded figures, vehicles, beasts, BattlePacks, Evolutions and everything else 3 3/4 inch in size.  All waiting for my kids to grow up so I, I mean, they can play with them. ;D

Oh, and did I mention that he was the one that got me hooked on Force FX lightsabers?  He just had to go and buy one for his son's birthday.  That was it...  I'm now the proud owner of the Vader, Anakin, Luke and Maul double bladed sabers.

Lastly, he's also my pusher.  I give him a list of what I want/need and he makes all the early morning toy runs and comes in with bags of figures on a regular basis.  I know that I could refrain from telling him what I want, but he would buy them and bring them in anyway.  What are friends for?

I just hope he doesn't start collecting Sideshow, Gentle Giant, Attackus or anything else I could get hooked on...

Thanks buddy, I'm glad I met you!

The Original Trilogy / Re: 'From Star Wars to Jedi' Documentary

Thanks for the insight guys.  I actually wasn't aware of the SW and ESB documentaries you both mentioned.  I think that I am going to pick up FSWTJ the next time I see it up for auction.  I think that the last one I saw sold for $5 including shipping.  At that price how can I say no?!

The Original Trilogy / 'From Star Wars to Jedi' Documentary
« on: August 18, 2006, 04:32 PM »
I was watching the original VHS release of the OT (circa 1980's) this past week in anticipation of the DVD release next month and came across the preview add for the 'From Star Wars to Jedi' documentary that was supposed to be released at the same time.

Does anyone have a copy of this?  If you do, does any of the footage match the footage that was in documentary in the OT DVD releases from 2005?  I just wonder if it's worth tracking down a copy on VHS from ebay or another source.  If it's the same footage that was used for last year's documentary then I won't bother.

Let me know.  Thanks.

Thanks Jeff for creating that link.  Hasbro responded to my e-mail about 5 minutes ago, but attached a .pdf version of that document and I had no idea how to get it into this response.  You definitely saved me the trouble!

Picked up a Mace Saber today at Costco for $49.97.  Might be worth checking out.  They were with the toys.

WOW, that is an awesome price! :o  I would consider getting one myself at that price, but unfortunately where I am in IL, the Costco's don't carry them.  Any chance I can convince one of you CA guys to pick one up for me and ship it my way, if they are still available?  Send me a PM if you're interested.  Thanks.

I think I Am Sith mentioned emailing Hasbro about it today Rob but didn't mention a reply yet...

Monday morning and still nothing back from Hasbro.  I'll make sure I post right away if I hear anything.

BTW, did any of you hear that WM has started their clearance for the VTSC figures?  I read $3 in some areas.

I just e-mailed Hasbro to inquire about the order form that comes with Luke and whether or not it's still needed.  If I get a response back from them I'll make sure to post it.

Jocasta's Reading Room / Re: Clone Wars Adventures?

Brian,

I too have been looking into getting these.  A friend of mine just got the first three issues for his son so I was able to take a look.  They are definitely drawn in the Cartoon Network style and the stories are as fun as the cartoon.  If you liked that series then you will definitely like these books.  Yes, you are correct in assuming that they are meant for the kids, but even as an adult who enjoyed the Cartoon Network series I enjoyed these enough to want to get them myself.  One word of caution, make sure you get the versions you're looking for.  There are English and Spanish versions of these out there.

I like the way you think...  Well that's 7, so there's enough for a second Battle Scene 7 pack now!

Sorry to hear that man.  I hope it's just someone in your office playing a prank, but if it isn't that's just rude.  No one should ever touch someone else's Yoda!

May wonders never cease.  I just got an e-mail from Hasbro that they credited my order the 10% after I sent them the promo code.  I almost feel like busting into a little 'Today Was a Good Day' from Ice Cube!

1979
I was able to order two  ;D!!!  BrentS e-mailed me too late, but there's a promotional code that you can use with your order to get a discount.  The code is 'COMIC2006'.  I just sent an e-mail to Hasbro in hopes of them modifying my order to give me the discount, but I highly doubt they will.  Then again, I didn't think that I would have a chance to get this figure after they sold out last week.  Good luck everyone!

Saga Collection '06 / Re: TRU Exclusive Endor AT-AT
« on: August 3, 2006, 02:30 PM »
I was able to confirm that one of the TRUs in my area is getting a shipment of these tomorrow.  My problem is that I really can't justify the $90 price point right now.  If they order these in the same quantity as they did the Falcons last year, these will still be here a year from now.  But if they learned their lesson and have only ordered a limited amount, I may miss out.  The last release came out well before I started collecting.  It's just the price that is making this decision so hard right now.
