Revenge of the Sith / Re: AT-RT - the walker army-builder

yeah, the figure could be the downer.  Given the incredibly poseable body they have available, I think a poseable pilot would've been great.

As far as camoflauging, it may not be the case...  The Republic Pilot's have a vibrantly colored outfit...  These Recon troops could just have this color as their basic color...  It seems Clones this go-round use color for more than rank distinction.  EU's been implying this and it seems Lucas may be taking it to the canon level.

They may be green on desert planets then for all we know.

GH.com has some nice high-res shots up including a spoiler-ish one for Shaak Ti...

However, while there's a panic already over this "feature", her carded figure seems to NOT have the same feature, or it's covered up or plugged with something while the loose shot of her shows the feature clearly.

Ponderings?

BTW, my jaw really hit the floor looking at the high-res shot of the AT-TE Gunner.  isn't he just a basic Clone with a shoulder pad and some other accessory packed in, and no action feature?

He rocks though...  I mean, holy ****.  If E2 had been this thought-out I'd have been a much happier man the past 3 years.

Yeah I'm really floored by some of the Collection 2 figures.

Just think what Star Wars as a line would've been like had E1 and E2 had quality backing them like this?!?!?  I'll tell you what, I'd have been a tad more forgiving at least. :) 

Hasbro's taken things up a notch with E3.  Good for them, though it sucks royally that they "see the light" 10 years after the line's beginning.  I more than ever want resculpts of old figures though, if this is what it would be like.

I like the sketch Bill, one of my favorites actually...  Droids Bossk still is superior in every way. :)

But I like you have him actually, sorta, seemingly like he's doing Jabba's books or some such.  Fitting with tax season here and all. 

That or he's in a chat room...  maybe reading the latest threads here?  :)

Eh, it was ok for Comedy Central so I'm not gonna complain unless the powers that be tell me otherwise.

Good score on the pic.  I can only fathom Greivous cruising in similar style.  I'd be horribly disappointed in E3, but at the same time I know I'd not be the only one laughing his ass off in the theater.

If you're having trouble with Chat that's one thing but I was meaning the FFURG FForums are a great place to get input...  You should go there, unless that's what you meant that you can't get into.

If you can though, the FFURG FForums would appreciate you showing the work there.  I didn't notice it yet there myself incase you tried.

the AT-RT I can explain away enough to satisfy my own gripe on it...  It is a small personal support one I think.  The AT-PT looks, in my view, to be the real "evolution" of that walker.  The enclosed cockpit, and a forward gun able to put a field of fire down...  Not gonna put an AT-ST down ever (not alone anyway) but it's an improvement. 

The RT's got the height advantage (good in brush), and would be an asset, just not anything superior to all it's gonna encounter on a field, even if only encountering infantry.  It's a walking E-Web basically...  Good to get a "machine gun" up for support, and even over a wall perhaps (ideal) but not for marching right in on anything.

The wheelbike...  It looks like fun anyway.

What was that wheel-bike thing from Southpark?  Dale, do you have a picture we can even show here of that one?  :)  I wonder if Greivous makes it go the same way?  hahaha

Revenge of the Sith / Hasbro / RotS Figures in the Media
« on: February 8, 2005, 04:59 AM »
CLICK HERE

So this was elsewhere but it's a pretty good read and a topic I find quite curious...  It says a lot about Star Wars that I've been saying now for years but which I've been told I was "wrong" by more than a handful of people...

I tend to agree with the analyst's response to the story when saying that Star Wars is not something Hasbro should be putting their hopes into...  However I don't believe they honestly are either.

Something I bring to the table, and something I bet most people have never read but it's a fun thing to check out, is a read on the Company's History via Hasbro.com...  It's funny when reading that PR article that they have on their main page because you get a better look overall at this company's trends, and where they've put a lot of weight over the years.

It's sad, but Star Wars is a mere blip on Hasbro's radar, and their Company History page shows it...  To them it's just a brand they kept from the hands of someone else I feel.  I think they are making a push with the last movie, but I don't believe Hasbro is really putting a lot of hope that Star Wars will rebound the Boy's Toys division as a whole.  I think the reporter's giving more credit to the license and Hasbro PR work than they deserve, and the Analyst gives a better breakdown of Hasbro's view...  the license is a gamble, it always has been, and there's plenty backing that up.

I think Star Wars is in for dark days after E3 unfortunately.  I think it'll be more a liability to the Boy's Toys division rather than a blessing, short of some incredible popularity out of E3 and into new popular media.

Horribly tiny pic, I know.

It's "Stacy's Mom", who gives me that
squishy feeling in my nether-regions every time
I see that video.  MMMMMmmmmm

The Buzz Boar was what I was thinking too.

It's an odd vehicle...  Not the most practical design really, but whatever.  The AT-RT's not exactl screaming "military excellence" itself, what with the big open seat  you could snipe the driver off of. :)

I like those odds...   :-X

Whoops, didn't mean to say that out loud.  :-[

To me, the junk becomes an accessory...  Like a plate on a dinner table, or some such.  An unseable droid arm with wiring jutting out it is just something an Ugnaught can tote around like a Bespin Guard carries a gun or Chewie lugs the accessory 3PO...

I see the playability factor though.  Hasbro should've made an interchangeable "Droid Factory" type of playset ages ago but they've not really tried to capture anyone's attention that way it seems.  :-\

Hmmm, some work places do block because Jason has trouble with that from time to time...  Hopefully you can get it fixed.

On the Bluubo's arm length, you could always cut the arms short...  I think you'd get the same effect basically.

Bobafett14 (Bob), my buddy from out here, says this place:

Alcatraz Brewing Company Illinois & Maryland - Circle Centre Mall

is good...  So I'll be going there a night for sure I think.

That said, my girl is going so I'm gonna say Hooters isn't a 100% guarantee for me...  Unless we do lunch at Hooters? :)  Dinner may be doable too though, just have to remember about my evenings not being spent alone...  As it is I'll be leaving her alone all day while I'm off nerding it up.

« on: February 7, 2005, 09:34 PM »
This is one of those threads that, as a dork, I feel an urge to "explain" things when I disagree with someone's dislike of something in the films, haha.  That kind of **** is what my friends laugh at me about.  :(
