Star Wars Action Figures / Ricky UK made a new figure...
« on: May 11, 2003, 08:05 PM »
And wow it's a neat one! :)



Not shabby at all!

The figure is inspired (I think) by the Imperial Aquatic Assault "Seatrooper" Stormtrooper from West End Games.  The image was most noticeably seen in the Imperial Sourcebook I believe.

Neat design, one of my favorites anyway.  I'm really glad to see someone make one, and make it so well.  Ricky does some fine work, but this is a really neat piece.

I have this guy on tap, but I've been planning to take some liberties with the details on it.  Ricky's is FAIRLY close to the images from West End Games though.

Pretty cool stuff for sure!

The Original Trilogy / Death Star Survivors?
« on: May 5, 2003, 11:39 PM »
So, ya think?  

Star Wars Tech commentaries made mention of this possibility, and the game Force Commander also made mention of General Veers being a Colonel aboard the DS who escaped upon seeing the possible destruction of her.

The distance away that the Falcon, X-Wings and the one Y-Wing were could suggest that there was some time between the DS's explosion for some personnel to make it to shuttles or fighters and leave...

Veers' shuttle was damaged in the escape and he crashes on Yavin IV (He's a secondary goal in one of the missions you are commanding).

It's an interesting debate...  I personally feel several of the station's crew might've made their way to shuttles to bug out...  Guys like Bast who saw a distinct possibility in the station's destruction maybe were making early preps...

Your take?  What do you believe?  Think I'm nuts?  :)

The Prequel Trilogy / Ya Hear about A wookie (Spoiler maybe)
« on: April 24, 2003, 01:14 AM »
Announced today that Peter Mayhew will be reprising his role as Chewbacca for E3.

I can't say I'm happy to hear this...  Sure his age is able to allow him to fit in, but I hate the "Need" Lucas has to tie everyone we already know to everyone we want to know more about.

It diminishes the story somewhat...  Tarkin I'd have liked to have seen as a young upstart politician/supporter of Palpatine in the opening years of the Empire/end of Clone Wars.  I'd also come to accept teh droids...

How will they incorporate Chewie into this though, and him not remember/know anythhing that's going on?

What makes him NEED to be tied into this?

Nothing I say, and he could've just been the character we've grown to love as is.

Oh well...  Lucas's gig, he can trash it however he pleases.

The Wookiee Arcade / Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike
« on: April 24, 2003, 01:09 AM »
Yup, it's been announced (yesterday or the day before).

It's up at www.lucasarts.com

Also, one of the gamer mags has the first screenshots.  The game will include at least SOME kind of multiplayer, and it will be a Gamecube exclusive just as Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader was/is.

Visually it looks stunning in the few screens pictured so far, but I'll wait till I play it to critique gameplay.  There's actually 3rd person shooter levels judging by the screens (Even slicing open an AT-AT and blowing it up with a grenade).  I'm not sure how I'll like those mixed in with the flight gaming.

I hope the game has a decent story, more atmospheric missions, and that the game is as BIG as Rogue Leader (Or bigger) in flight combat, and that the 3rd person stuff is just a side thing between missions sometimes.

Rogue Leader didn't have much of a story though, and was too "Space" based...  2 aspects I missed from the original Rogue Squadron.

Should be cool though I do believe, so I'm looking forward to this immensely.
