I'm not so sure...  Porting old games seems relatively easy, but each I'm not counting on it.

The original Rogue Squad, which had good story and awesome new EU vehicles (love the hover tanks in it.  Antiquated looking but neat), Empire At War (complete game!) Rebellion (blah), Republic Commando (AWESOME!)...  Lots of goodness and more to come in 2015 they say.

I'm hopeful for Force Commander, the other Rogue Squad Games, Bounty Hunter...  All great storylines, and despite Matt_Fury and I disagreeing on FC's gameplay, I still maintain it's a miles superior game overall to Galactic Battlegrounds.  Empire At War, eh, not so much.  I barely played that though due to the game's demands on my machine at the time.  :(  It played nice though, what I did play.

Jedi Knight (How'd I forget) now also on GOG...  Hopefully Mysteries of the Sith soon to follow.  People who didn't play Dark Forces, JK, and MOTS, missed out on some of the finest EU in all of EU. 

Those alone + XW, TIE, and XW: Alliance, would've made me happy.  The rest of these downloads are just a bowl of gravy at this point.

I, on the other hand, consider ROTJ to be one of the deepest pools of characters and rescupts needing done!  :)

1 ) Endor Rebel Soldier SA Resculpt (Either a POTF2 costume resculpt, or the vintage figure resculpt.  I'll take either, but neither has a good modern figure)  (I'd basically take a Nik Sant too, though I consider it a distinctly diff uniform)
2 ) Rebel Crewman (At Home 1 Briefing, brown uniforms, ballcaps w/diamond logos, gear box on belt, etc.)
3 ) Palace Ishi Tib (I want the Rebel one resculpted too though)
4 ) Funeral Pyre Vader
5 ) Amanamanamanaman Resculpt
6 ) Sgt. Doallyn (Palace Variation)
7 ) Human Guard That Shoots Luke's Hand
8 ) Human Guard in "Russian" Style Hat (with Deck Gun)
9 ) Yots Oren (eh, why not?)
10) Geezum

I still can't get on the Frozec train...  I want any/all Endor Rebels redone though.  :-\

Picked up a bunch of Biggs on clearance at Amazon and to my shock he is a perfect fit for the AT-ST Pilot heads (K-Mart sets), of which I have about 3 billion of them sitting here, even some unopened I think.  Fell into some fun pilot headswapping with that.

The AT-ST guy heads don't fit on much I'd found, then this, so I'm happy.  I'll do headcasts for the headless AT-ST guys then I guess down the road.  Overall a goofy good day in a way.

Yes.  I think the Broncos aren't anywhere near the Patriots, as a team.  I think it'll be much more interesting seeing Brady & Co. go head-to-head with the Seahawks D this year than what Denver had going last year.  Denver was good last year (and this year) but I really feel this'll be a more competitive game from both teams.

Not that I predicted the drubbing Denver got last year by any means, quite the opposite.  I think this'll be more interesting this year though.

I've found their times are usually pretty good but usually later in the month listed.

My dreams are coming true!

First released X-Wing and TIE Fighter...  Now?  Oh my!

GOG released KOTOR II, Battlefront II, Galactic Battlegrounds, X-Wing Vs. TIE Fighter, and my favorites...

Dark Forces, and X-Wing: Alliance too!

Yes, two of the ULTIMATE storylines in Star Wars EU, ever IMHO, are now simple downloadable games that'll play on modern machines.

To boot?  X-Wing: Alliance may damn well be moddable so if you have a fast rig, check out X-Wing: Alliance Upgrade...  they've made insanely detailed ops for the game for YEARS (since its release), and can make Alliance look like it was made yesterday visually.

Your PC will need to be beefy to run Alliance Upgrade downloads but I'm guessing they're already making sure it's compatible and everything works.  They can take the game from dated looking, to something you'd see on any modern console (or better).  Their work is professional to say the least.

Another exclusive, this one for the Taiwan Toy Show... 

A Sol Commander Desserter, who sports a rifle w/sling, and a tattered cloak and stuff, and belt to hold it on.  An awesome little unique accessory set for an existing figure.  Like Red Face for the last show, I'm thoroughly bummed I can't own one.  :'(

I wish I had better overseas contacts to pester for this.  >:(

At the moment, dust.

Neither were teams I was pulling for, but I find the match-up more interesting than last year's was. 



Uh, yeah, they're even starting to tempt me, who vowed not to deviate from 4" scale stuff...  But that?  Holy ****.

If Hasbro wanted to bump figure prices to $15 for the 4" line, I'd be giddy to see them go this route.  Multiple scene-specific heads, hands, hyper articulated, crisp paint apps...  I'd pay 50% more for figures for that kinda stuff.

And these shame their 6" line, top to bottom.

Cannot say enough good stuff about their private warehouse.  Stock up that way, and you'll save an assload if you play your cards right on it.

There's a "trench run" remark in there somewhere, but I'll refrain.

I'm not against the match-up personally.  Two good teams...  Seems better than last year's match-up was (and turned out to be, ultimately).  I'm definitely not a fan of either team but as a football championship game, it's ok.  Since I'm not vested in either team, I may put something on it.
