Nice evolution from Klaatu to Woof

The first Klaatu rocked in the eighties, coz he came with the soft goods and represented an all new species

Even now there is  some confussion between niktos and klaatu, I prefer consider Woof a klatooinian

Want to buy the tvc version.

First impressions:

Kit Fisto acted as Namour, was the one who could stand the shark guy.

Shrak guy more animalistic than other species, he attacks with his head, bites, etc. His suit isolates blaster. Perhaps he deserves a battle with Anakin.

The predominance of dark background underwater, sometimes confusing animation.

Calamari and Quarrens donīt wear boot or shoes under water. A detail that fits with their submarine cities.

Itīs amazing how Hasbro has improved depiction of detail in smaller scale than vintage Kenner.

The head reduced to show more features, perhaps only brancchiae should have been more marked on potj version.

Like how the collar of the cape is more visible on potj Tessek, but the disposition of Squid Headīs cape make a satisfactory look, something you can accomodate due to the flexibility of soft goods.

I donīt like the dug insertion >:(

Some spaces like the stairway needed to be empty to appreciate it.

Itīs dumb

It is like Homer from Greece tries to remake his Odisey.

"Homer the greek blind aedo realised that the 40 pretenders for Penelope were very few
for that exciting scene, and he decided to include a minotaurus, a Centaurus and a baby Lestrogon (species of giant) to fill better the palace."

Guys, Lucas has missed the shot this time.

The Noo from Vader is unnecesary, quite disgusting. Dialogue is taken as granted in the Ot Versions. This
Nooo! and the cry spoil the mistery and the majesty of the classic scene.

I am in favor of some scenes from archive and alternate takes, like Jerjerood force choked.

Vintage Jedi Luke has the brown cloak (a darker one is isssued with 2012 Jedi Origin Luke)
Perhaps after the deleted scene they will update the Jabba Palace Version of Luke.

Like the tvc Jedi Luke, he is in the way of evolving articulation and sculpt. He can stand with his side kick from
Throne room duel.

I donīt know if Hasbro would have included a removable vest with sash and the cloak cape of the outfit.

Not all good tales depend on technology. Of course Lucas is free to profit his character, but in the end he will
give Boba another face, he will dispatch Temeura to Kessel mines. ;)

What will happen if they said that Boba could fire 8 blasters at a time before A New Hope?
Only would be a try to diminish his spoils on the classic saga.

But I donīt want to seem purist neither intolerant, the producers are using the feedback from EU
so if the product is not appealing I wonīt watch it.

Of course, Iīll pass on collection items, toys from this Boba production.

I think CGI Yoda is an acceptable change, the puppet has a very hard expression, they softened Yodaīs face to match eps 2 and 3.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition
« on: August 18, 2011, 06:29 PM »

I havenīt purchased any vintage kenner figure since vintage time, cuase in my country are scrace and extremely expensive.

I want to buy some figures I missed from the original collection and realize it could be better to acquire loose figures, then after saving a bit go for the carded.

I want some advise please

Could you tell me if this C-8 DSCommander is used or new?*C8

All figures with repro gun or weapon are second hand (used toys)?

Thanks in advance,

As if they actually have shot inside The Executor. All guns smoking.

This artist must have been chosen for the cards instead of the guy from

August 2011 extended trailer, what Filoni Team has achieve and what they need to improve.

1. Count Dooku still bears a large conical head, kinda Rapa Nui monolitic sculpture or Ki Adi Mundi, they need to soften his trace.
2. Clones have evolved specially on rots gear, when they remove their helmets, their heads are regular size, have overcome the vice to bubble heads of the first season.
3. Anakin and Obi Wan are better proportioned, although they tend to heoic height (9 heads tall), Asoka is presented less bubble head than on seasons 1 and 2, but perhaps they could improve more her depiction.
4. Calamari young warriors have been design reusing Naddar Vebb head, when looking at close up of this teenagers or 20 years old guys they look like clones of Naddar. Better a fictional universe of difference.
5. Some combat scenes from secondary characters like ordinary battle droids, aqua droids, low rank clones look pressed by time of edition, they are exposed to a rain of laser rays Rex escapes this leitmotif, but is neccesary to
vary combat schemes.
6. Hope to listen to a more complex dialogue, not at a level too hard for kids, but at a medium degree of complication.
7. Submarine city is ok, it will give insight on Mon Calamari technology.

Power of the Force 2 / POTF2 Recent Purchases
« on: August 15, 2011, 03:56 PM »
Hello there, as an adult collector I suppose most of you are still buying the potf2 figure you have missed in the late 90s. If you pick them at retail, briantoys, ebay, walmart or wherever you choose, this will be the opportunuty to regitrate our purchases and comment the likes on these potf2 depictions of classic characters.

So I was buying at retail during may and july some characters like

the classic stormie with commtech; at at driver which I liked a lot beacuse his combination of different gray shades for boots, suit, etc is superb and more definite than tlc or saga versions.

On previous years I got Thawn, death star trooper and the Jedi Duel tri pack.

I still want to get more potf2 characters and read about your findings.

Picked today at Pharmax in San Isidro, Lima, Perú 2 tvc figures: VC 23 Luke Skywalker (Endor Capture) at 49.90 soles, and SL04 Greedo at 19.90 soles. (current exchange in Lima, 1 dolar reaches 2.75 soles.)

Extended Season 4 trailer

1. A guy like Desan working for Dooku. (lizard character)
2. Grieevous still fighting Jedi without telekinesis power.
3. Best depiction of Rex and clones in animated 3D style.
4. Mon  Calamari guys very naif in depiction... fans can appreciate
 more their ondulatory moves on water scenes.

After watching the databank of Barris on galactichunter, I discovered the good job on the rubber cape and hood. It was a concept almost forgiven on Hasbro figures, since the soft good evolved in high quality cloacks.
Dooku was the last guy with plastic or rubber cape, I wonder if this method could pass to new classic Vader and Obi Wan figures, as a variant, or as possibilities for battle packs.

The neck is too long on Barris, when taking a peek one can thing in ballerina proportions, but is far too long. And the head is slightly looking backwards, like the head position of the white bald tvc rebel commando.
