Just got done reading issues #0 and #1.  I definitely like where this is going.  Can't wait for the next installment.

On a related note, this is my first real entry into the events of the New Jedi Order.  Any suggested reading I should check out to get me up to speed on where they are at?  Or I guess better stated, where they have come from?  ???

Thanks for any help you can provide.

That was awesome!  Thanks for sharing Gundam.  If I were one of his two 'assistants', I don't think that I would forget that experience any time soon.

I Am Sith Will you be going for the mace Windu? The hilt is in my oppinion the best one.

I really don't think that I'm going to get a Mace one, but who knows what will happen if the price is right.  If FAO Schwarz puts it up on sale like the Vader and Anakin sabers are this week, I don't think that I could pass it up at $68 like those.

I know that the hilt is great as a friend of mine has one and I've been able to see it up close.  I'm also not crazy about purple.  But my main beef is with the character more than the saber.  He and Jar Jar are by far my two least favorite prequel characters.  I don't mean to offend those of you who like Samuel L. Jackson's character, but I just didn't care for him, especially in EP1.

Call me crazy, but having an 'attachment' to the character is a big deal to me when it comes to getting these lightsabers.  Anakin, Luke, Maul, Vader, I got into all of these characters and was really psyched to get their force fx sabers.  I also can't wait to get the Obi-Wan when it comes out.  With Mace, he was just 'eh' to me in the prequels, so the desire isn't there.

Thanks for the compliments.  I'm quite the perfectionist, almost to a fault.  Since I worked on this a long while ago, I only have a few WIP pictures, but here you go:

The one thing that I remember about the 'face' was that I wasn't pleased with it until I added the black highlights.  That really sealed it for me.  It also covered up minor imperfections where the different colors meld together.  Thanks again.

My favorite story is the Maul story he just slooks so badass.

Mine as well. Very entertaining read!!

I couldn't agree with both of you more!  When I saw the picture of Maul in Insider, I think that it took me all of about 10 seconds to order the book on Amazon.  I thought that the whole book was very well done and I loved some of the concept art that was included.  The tie in of the origin of Grievous in Visionaries to Labyrinth of Evil was great.

Here goes:

1. Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ultimate)
2. Qui-Gon Jinn (Ultimate)
3. Jango Fett (Ultimate Resculpt)
4. Senator Padme Amidala (Fireplace)
5. Galactic Marine
6. BARC Trooper
7. Mace Windu (Ultimate Resculpt)
8. Utapau Airborne Clonetrooper
9. Commander Neyo
10. Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise)
11. Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise)
12. Bom Vimdin
13. Tonnika Sisters
14. Luke Skywalker (Snowspeeder Resculpt)
15. Luke Skywalker (Bespin Resculpt)
16. Hermi Odle
17. Princess Leia Organa (General/Endor Gear)
18. Warok
19. Lumat
20. Klaatu (Jabba's Palace)

The only parts of my collection that they will not get their hands on are my Darth Vader and Darth Maul Master Replicas Force FX lightsabers.  Those are for me!    ;D  I haven't decided if I'm going to get the Anakin and Luke ones for them to play with when they are MUCH older...

And just to update you all, it didn't take me long to decide on the Anakin and Luke.  I ended up buying both this week.  I couldn't help myself, the price was too good to pass up!

Now if I could only figure out how to break it to my wife...

Thanks for the welcomes everyone.  I'm getting settled in quite nicely.  I've posted a few times but mostly have been laying back and observing.  I guess it's the 'people watcher' in me.  So far I like what I see!

Hope to talk to more of you soon.

Hi Everyone.  I'm new to collecting FX sabers, but I dove right in over the past two months.  I ended up getting the double bladed Darth Maul (favorite character, favorite saber), the ESB Vader, the ROTS Anakin, and the ROTJ Luke.  Although I've missed out on a lot of the first releases (based on what I've read in this thread), I can't see myself going back and completing the set.  One because of the price and two because I wouldn't know where to even begin to locate them.  I do really like this generation of sabers.

I'm pretty glad that I waited until now to get them, as I saved myself a few hundred by getting them on ebay or through the MR package deals that I've split with another collector I work with.

I can't wait to get the ROTS Obi-Wan and would love to see either Dooku made eventually as I love the uniqueness of the hilt.

I have to ask though, has anyone purchased one of the 'Luxeon' versions of these with the sparring blades posted on ebay?  I just want to know how they stack up.

These just hit by me today.  I was able to get two put on hold for me last night when they were unloading them from the truck.  When I went in to pick them up this morning when they opened, the remaining four were nowhere to be seen.

This was only at one of the two TRU's in my area though.  The other still has not gotten them, nor can they confirm when they will be.  I still have another friend that needs two for himself.  Hopefully there will be plenty more to come.

These are great sets and ones that I was happy to shell out $50 for!

PM sent.  Thanks!

Saga Collection '06 / Re: TSC Imperial Shuttle??
« on: May 16, 2006, 09:05 AM »
I'm actually lookiing forward to this as I missed out on the original version from FAO/KB.  And if the $60 price tag holds true that makes it all the better.  I'm getting a little sticker shock with the price of vehicles these days ($30 for the starfighters/hailfire/AAT and $45 for the gunship!!!), so a reduction from the original $100-$125 would be welcomed.

Where my concern comes in is that the smaller Target stores like the one in my area never seem to get the same volume as the Target Greatland stores and thus I usually only see one or two at best of the larger vehicles.  The TIE Fighter was the exception as they had about 6, but 4 of them ended up on clearance for $28.  The shuttle is not something I'm going to wait to go on clearance...

Hi everyone.  Although I'm a new member, I've been browsing around on this site for almost three months now.  I'm friends with a few members and they have sung the praises of this site so much that I just had to sign up.

I've been collecting SW merchandise for only about 18 months.  My collection starts with EP1 up to Saga II, but I was a little late for the VOTC, so I missed out on all of those in the stores.  I haven't brung myself to pay the secondary market cost for that collection so it's going to be the only void I have.

My plan is to pass everything I have purchased on to my two sons when they are old enough to play with it.  Right now, the boys are 2 years and 11 months old, respectively.  Although I assure my wife that the little one won't swallow any of the small parts, she won't let them near anything for at least another 2 years.  (Yes, before you ask, everything is MOC or MIB and it's taking up a rather large portion of my house at the moment.)  Needless to say, I haven't listened to her entirely and bought the older one a basic lightsaber when ROTS came out.  He's quite adept at making sound effects and using it to scare the dog.

The only parts of my collection that they will not get their hands on are my Darth Vader and Darth Maul Master Replicas Force FX lightsabers.  Those are for me!    ;D  I haven't decided if I'm going to get the Anakin and Luke ones for them to play with when they are MUCH older...

That's me.  I look forward to a long stay here.  Thanks!
