12" Figures / Re: Sideshow 12" ANH Luke Skywalker
« on: January 17, 2008, 04:56 PM »
I just wish they would have thrown in the Blast Shield helmet.  But all in all it's looks great IMO.

Yes!   That would be awesome!  Just what we needed to go with Obi's training remote!    Not to mention my Robot Chicken scene!    Hmmm... I wonder if the Hasblo one will fit.....

I am going to pick this one up becuase i it is iconic, but this line is just getting boring. It was the coolest and hottest thing but they just have lost it. They need to be willing to spend some more money on some aliens and bounty hunters. I think at this point its pretty ridiculous they have not done Vader, the Droids, or Chewbacca.

I agree with you- we need some more variety/coolness with this line.   I'll be getting the Luke, just so I can do the Robot Chicken skit with my Obi-Wan    ::)

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Target TFU Battle Rancor
« on: January 7, 2008, 08:44 PM »
I've read its origins have "spread" across the galaxy some...  Forget where I read that.  Dathomir is what I'd always recalled as its "original" planet though, for what that's worth.  Maybe they're just domesticated and used on other worlds then for various purposes.

Yeah, the official homeworld is Dathomir--but all the authors want to use them so they've shown up all over the galaxy, and the "spreading" explanation is just a CYA after the fact to explain why they're now everywhere. ::)

Don't forget.. CYA is the glue that hold the SW Universe together (along with the Force of course!) :P

Saturday was just sooo damn painful for me as a Skins/Steelers fan.
To quote Ramblin Sandy Pitnik (I think) from A Mighty Wind:
"Whaa  Happan?"

Great, POTF2 speeder bikes painted with snow.



Actually, the POTF2 speeder bikes are made of much sturdier plastic than what we've been getting in the bikes lately and these will more than likely suck just as much.   We are WELL overdue for SpeederBike retool but I'm not holding my breath (lost my rebreather the other night)

I got mine as well- the only problem is that the plastic sheath for the wire stand cracked the first time I put the stand in.   I also can't decide whether to display him with the full saber or the belted one (I have this issue with most of the Jedi)

Hmm.... idear just popped into the ol' noggin here.   You can just create your own evolution displays... line up all releases of a certain figure from Vintage to TAC and beyond!   I think I've just put all my POTF2 stuff in a plastic box in the closet at the moment.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS ARC-170
« on: December 17, 2007, 10:16 AM »
I agree its a great vehicle from the modern line if not the greatest. I would love to see a weathered version as well. The space whale version is pretty lame. I will buy one because "I have to" but I wish they would do an upgrade deco ala Y-Wing style.

Yeah... I ended up with the ROTS one but never picked up the ROTS Gunship.  I then picked up the Deco-Gunship and then found an ROTS Gunship for a good price.   I picked up the Deco-170 just to go with the gunship...
Once I get them hung from the ceiling I think they'll make nice paired sets

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Jabba's Skiff Guards Battle Pack
« on: December 17, 2007, 08:40 AM »

I'd add a 5th figure though, with a human skiff guard...  Any human skiff guard.  There's a particularly cool guy though that shoots Luke's hand, and since he does so, I'd dig him the most. 

Seriously, it was time for one of those laser blasts to find it's mark already.

Well.... you gotta cut Jabba's Goons some slack..."Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise" :P

Done and Done.    I just hope they don't process this one for a few months to let my wallet recover from the holiday!

That sucks ass. :(

Instead of a cool, stand alone issue with a sweet shot of the Rattler pwning the Skystriker (the plane Ace actually came with), they go for an issue with a bad view of the rattler shooting a lame stealth jet during a lame storyline.

Vs.

Oh well, I guess I don't have to be worried about being sucked in after all...  ::)


Yeah.. I'm pretty sure it wasn't Ace flying that Stealth  in the comic... they never gave the Stealth Pilot's name at all... he was the "what's his name?" guy.   Futher research shows that his code name is GhostRider... That comic should never have been chosed for the the pack...   The issue 34 showdown between Wild Weasal and the Baroness and Ace and Scarlett (or was it Lady J?) in the Skystriker should've been the one.   Sigh....

Thanks for the heads up Dressel... just ordered two McQuarrie Obi Wan/Yodas for $23.98 shipped.   :)

Why oh Why did I buy these at CIV?

Ugh...Why do all of these exclusives have to come out in December?   ::) 

I promised my self to cut back in 2008...not 2007.

I hear ya.. just picked up the deco-ARC-170 and will more than likely pick up the two Ultimate Battle Packs this evening if I can find them.   Not to mention the Sideshow 12"ers shipping this month!

I thought I'd picked up the Exclusive but apparently not.  Oh well.   I really think the likeness is better in reality though I think the head is a little on the large side for the body and the hands also seem a bit big.  I too dislike the hood... very hard to get it to look "normal".. they could have easily done a better job with it.

All in all, happy with everything but the price...
