The Original Trilogy / Re: How did Jabba the Hutt get so much power?
« on: September 11, 2008, 01:59 AM »
We can measure Huts power by their wealth, Jabba must be the wealthies, he has lots of slaves, guards and ships. His palace is sophisticated, he collects arts pieces and trophies, has a will for aesthetics.

But Hutts don´t spend so much money on clothes, I remember only a Hutt with a cap an a vest from the old republic time. But we see Jabba naked. Perhaps to depict differents Hutts, the illustrators of expanded universe choose to dress them up.

Other expanded universe item for wealthy hutts is a levitating litter for transportation. Jabba in ANH crawls on docking bay 94, but on some expanded universe comics he use that levitator throne.
Perhaps the doctor recomended Jabba to "walk" or crawl to improve health?

Other wealthy hutt was a Jabba´s fiance, who promenades in the streets with a huge litter with a race of strong males carrying it.

The Original Trilogy / Re: In what thing could IG88 spend his money?
« on: September 11, 2008, 01:38 AM »
Thanks for both answers guys. IG 88 can think of wealthy as a goal, because his droid condition make him a proficient accounter of money. His programming must include aesthetics values for collecting arts items. He must have a huge database of art styles and craft from various planets of the galaxy.

As a bounty hunter, he knows the movement of speculation, trading, the activity of robbing art pieces by gangs and so on.

Droids´ wealthy must be investigated and worked as a theme for expanded universe fiction.

The Original Trilogy / In what thing could IG88 spend his money?
« on: September 10, 2008, 12:13 PM »
Star Wars Universe has all kind of bounty hunters, inclusive droids. Ig88 are a family of droids built for assassination, the most famous is ig88 B (The droid from esb). Ever I have wondered what use of money could make a droid? Well, Ig 88 has a space ship, he spends money in weapons, grenades, batteries, he could listen to music and buy cds or so on. But he can´t spend money on food and drinks, he is a machine.

If a droid is an art collector he could buy statues, vases, maquettes, books, holocrons, etc.

But why these droids need money? What is the ultimate use of monet for them?

Hey Hasbro! / Hasbro should offer build a trooper bonus action figures
« on: September 8, 2008, 05:03 PM »
Today we are buying the build a droid bonus parts with TLC action figures, it i :)s great. But in the near future Hasbro could make a campaing of building your bonus trooper.

For example black stormies, white stormies with removable helmet, imperial gunners, atst drivers,
rebel fleet troopers, hoth troopers or endor troopers.

Or perhaps they could launch a "Build a pilot campaing", the figures could be known pilots or generic pilots like awing, b wing, x wing, tie pilots, etc.

If you agree with this idea, please propose which trooper you would want to build in such a promotion for the future. :)

Collect All 92! / Re: Vintage Figures Which Have Not Been Updated
« on: September 6, 2008, 01:54 AM »
I think both imperials and rebel commanders need an update. We saw one at sdcc 2008, with Lt. Renz, but his body is a repaint from Jerjerood´s body. We need soldiers and commanders with id and without id.

I think the tendency of Hasbro line is to release a commander with his full name, because anonymate is avoided due to the public knowledge of these oficers´names by fans worldwide.

606
Perhaps in the future, Hasbro could include parts of a new FX-7 medical droid, a 2-1B with his computer chair, C3po and R2D2, some droids from Jabba Palace, etc. 8)

This promotion encourages buying action figures with proper blisters.

607
We are now buying TLC action figures. In some cases, the bubbles hold very tight the action figures, so it is difficult to return them to their original boxes. The boxes are great, well decorated. But I remember the potf2 bubbles, they hold action figures loose and let us store them quickly in their original blisters.

Perhaps Hasbro could improve the bubbles, making them a bit more loose. Mainly the limbs of toys are hold very tight, and more when they hold some weapon.

Come on, share your opinions about TLC bubbles.

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: TLC Millenium Falcon
« on: August 30, 2008, 08:41 PM »
What´s the lowest and the highest price you have found for a TLC BMF?

I think 125$ is reasonabel, but 200$ is excessive

Good luck for all and beware of speculators.

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
« on: August 30, 2008, 01:18 PM »
I piked Luke Skywalker from TLC, sandstorm deleted scene Rotj

Great sculpt, the texture of Luke black suit is amazing. Show details of a virtual tailor work.

This is the path for a DS2 Luke from the Jedi duel.

Why only 3 action figures and a scurrier? it is good, but needs more sandtroopers

Nice research, indeed those were the star wars outfits for Bossk and Bo shek, but the sw characters built a durable role in fiction.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: TRU "Hoth Patrol" Battle Pack
« on: August 21, 2008, 12:30 AM »
I agree with Pete_Fett, the ice bases from saga hoth luke and ultra wampa were necesary in this pack.

It happens every time when Hasbro repacks..... they diminish accesories. The decorated box inside serves as a diorama, but if they want to satisfy collectors' need for accuracy they must have included the ice bases of Luke and Wampa.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Big Items of the Future!
« on: August 17, 2008, 03:06 AM »
How about a new Rebel transpot?

with a movable gun on top, wide cockpit for 4 action figures, longer than BMF, with some accesories like the vintage one, like gas mask, bags, weapons.

Great texture for the sandtroopers armor; the draw is like a photo; you caught them in motion:
