Starting a thread for Mike...

I remember at first when I saw his prices I was pretty suspicious, but hopeful that he would return with references, and he did! I have since completed an excellent transaction with him. I got a great deal on some army builders and a certain whiney Jedi that was making a big hole in my collection--a hole that Mike helped me fill for an unbelievably low price! Don't hesitate to do business with him, he's an awesome seller who shipped promptly and did a good job of keeping me updated through the whole thing!

Welcome to JD and thanks again, Mike!!!! :)

Just bored and wanted to give a separate thread to 'recent purchases.'

The Prequel Trilogy / BARC Troopers?
« on: April 5, 2008, 02:35 PM »
According to Hasbro's description on the box of the ROTS BARC Speeder w/BARC Trooper, 'BARC' stands for Biker Advanced Recon Commando. That name makes the BARC Trooper sound like an ARC Trooper on a bike, or basically an 'elite' class of clones that specialize in speeder bike patrol/reconaissance.



So why did these biker commandos seem to make up the entire basic fighting force of 'grunts' on Kashyyyk in the movie? I didn't see any other clone trooper armor designs in the battle there, except of course Commander Gree.

In a basic figure release a year later, Hasbro called it an 'Elite Corps' clone trooper. But if these clones are so elite, why did they pour a ton of them onto that beach? I would think that with the Republic spread thin across the Outer Rim, they would want to use their 'elite' forces a little more sparingly. And also, what happened to the bike thing? Weren't they 'Biker Advanced Recon Commandos' before?

Then they called the more recent figure a 'Kashyyyk Trooper,' from 'Sarlacc Battallions A and B.' That makes the guy pictured above sound more like just a basic grunt. But on the same packaging it says these clones are part of the '41st Elite Legion.' So just what does it mean to be 'elite,' and what happened to the BARC thing? Maybe BARC troopers are just an elite class within an elite class within 'Battallions A and B?' But wait...the 41st is an elite 'legion,' and isn't a legion bigger than a 'battallion?' My knowledge of names of soldier groups isn't too good, so maybe someone can explain that.

Oh, and let's not forget this guy...



It looks like the pic isn't working; this is the clone that came with Tsui Choi in the Order 66 pack. They're calling him a BARC Trooper. A Biker Advanced Recon Commando. Huh!?!

And I'm not even gonna attempt to go into the role of Imperial-era Biker Scouts and how they may be relevant to the BARC issue, I'll let someone else tackle that one. I'm already confused enough.


So, let's try to clear all this up. Your thoughts?...

Modern Trading / My Pax for your Greedo
« on: April 2, 2008, 08:10 PM »
I need a loose, complete VTSC Greedo and I need it soon. I thought I'd offer Pax Bonkik as a 1 for 1 Rodian trade. If you don't want Pax, I have plenty of other items available for trade (there's a link in my signature). I appreciate any help I can get, and thanks for looking!  :)

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Your Dream Wave?
« on: March 14, 2008, 03:58 PM »
I know there was a thread like this a long time ago in the TAC section, and I really liked the idea. It's 2018, and Hasbro says there will be one final wave of 10-12 figures for the Star Wars line. What would you want it to consist of?


My dream wave:

TPM Darth Maul (new, SA, w/wrist and hip articulation) w/lightsaber, lightsaber hilt, and removable cloak

AOTC Zam Wessell (new, SA) w/removable hemet, removable veil, blaster pistol, projectile rifle, removable arm, and kouhuns

AOTC Barriss Offee (new, SA) w/lightsaber, lightsaber hilt, and removable cloak

AOTC Hermione Bagwa w/drink tray and dishwasher unit

ROTS Bana Breemu w/drink glass

ROTS General Grievous (new, SA, accurate scale) w/detatchable arms, 4 lightsabers, and softgoods cape

Force Unleashed Shaak Ti w/lightsaber

ANH Walrusman (new, SA) w/blaster, bar section, removable arm, and drink glass

ESB Hoth Rebel Soldier (new, SA) w/blaster rifle, blaster pistol, removable helmet, goggles, and backpack

ESB Zuckuss (new, SA) w/blaster rifle

ROTJ Sim Aloo w/removable headdress and blaster pistol

ROTJ Admiral Ackbar (new, SA)

Jocasta's Reading Room / Death Star
« on: October 19, 2007, 06:38 PM »
I don't know if anyone else has started a thread for this novel yet.

'Death Star' arrived at my house from B+N today. I was looking forward to it after reading a preview article from a recent issue of SW Insider.

It's basically about the construction of the Death Star and the stories of some of the people that were involved with the Death Star and the Empire, willingly or unwillingly, that were just regular people.

So far, it's a very good book, I haven't really ever been this excited about a SW novel before. Before this came out I mostly just stuck to the movies and toys and ignored the novels.

Anyone else reading it?  :)

Hey everyone!

'There will be a substantial reward for the one who finds a Darktrooper and/or McSnowtrooper...'

...well, actually I'll just pay you back.

If you find either of these figures at retail or happen to be on HTS at the right time and grab one, just tell me what you paid and 'you will be compensated'...and there may be a little extra like a hologram or a coin.

Please don't go on eBay and spend thirty dollars, that's what I'm trying to avoid by asking for your help.

Thanks for looking!

In Fall 2008...

He has wiped out the Jedi Order. He has gained absolute control over the Senate. He has gained powerful new allies. And his grand army has conquered thousands of worlds. The Empire has risen. For Emperor Palpatine, everything is going as planned...

Now only one thing stands in his way...ordinary people.

From the brave volunteer soldier who saved the life of his Jedi General...
...to the holonet talk show host who had everything figured out before it happened...
...and a young girl who is discovering she has Jedi powers.

But as the galaxy falls under Imperial rule...
...yet another evil is gaining power...
...that poses a threat to even the Empire.

'The fate of the galaxy could be at stake!'

NOTE: Now that school has started I have been very, very busy. Therefore it's been taking a little while longer to get items from trades/sales sent out after a transaction. If so, I will keep you updated throughout the process. It usually never takes any more than a week.
