The X-Treme Detail Military Collectibles boards used to be hosted through there since it's a relatively small and privately run community...  They have a separate forum now, but I can imagine the turmoil that would've caused.  Those guys go ape**** when their site's down, like it's crack.

There's some good modeling forums on there with lots of tips and tricks archived.  Sad if that stuff's lost from a customizer's standpoint.

$.04 is the most I think I'd go for unless the penney jar had some larger value coin in it (dime, nickle, etc.) which those of course are fair game as well.

To me, you should never take more than the next highest value coin...  So if it's just penney's in there, $.04 is your limit.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Who's got the best burger?

A Red Robin JUST opened here Jason, I gotta try that now.

Hmmm, fast food's really piss poor around here...  Steak & Shake's just made an appearance in the last 5 years, and they're still sparse (one opening near me though).  I'd say, and this isn't really fast, but Fudruckers was probably the best burger I've had short of making one myself.

Places like McDonald's and stuff just don't do it for me unless I'm really desperate.

I like Steak & Shake food though, if that's a burger...  Not really I guess, but in a way.

I will say, A&W doesn't make a bad burger...  Hmmm, now I'm hungry.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: How big is your army?

That's pretty sweet Rob.

I, with CT STormies, can pull a similar classic scene off, but my Clone Army is meager at this point.

I have work to do just to catch up to that.  I'd like, honestly, 100 white CLones at a minimum.  If Hasbro does variations of the #6 or SA sclpt, then I'm in for as many of each of those that I can get as well.

And not counting customs too...  Yikes.  :o  That's a whole lotta plastic.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Deluxe Figures
« on: June 1, 2005, 12:42 AM »
I hope I run into those kinds of numbers you found Pete.  The Crab Droid's on my top priority list, and I have to admit that (even though I was a Spider Droid Hater), the Spidey has grown on me over the years...

The retooled gun is nice, it looks in-scale, and I can stomach the inaccurate undercarriage and would like a couple of the new ones... 

The Crab Droids just rocked in the film if for no other reason than the Clone who went balistic on the one...  I'd like to stock up on Stass and her bike too for hopeful BARC Troopers in the future, or at least customs.

The Clone 3-pack's still uninspiring to me so at least (for once) the hottest figure in a case isn't the figure I want the most. :)

I noticed that too, on Stass riding a ROTJ/E2 styled bike but the two Clone's sport the BARC.

I'm kinda happy they retooled the BARC since the initial launch one is a bit bogus.  I do find it ironic that a point they could've rehashed something they didn't.  Stass's bike looks pretty sweet though, a lot better than the first version.

Sheesh Rob...  Nice collection amassed so far.  I wish I could find more but I've not had luck as of late.  25's a lot more than I had initially rationed to myself...  15 more atualy.

I'm a weak person I guess.

40 would make me very happy though, especially after seeing pics of 40 + lined up...  Oh man that's just a sweet action figure!

Saga Collection '06 / Re: VOTC and OTC Returns in 2006!
« on: June 1, 2005, 12:32 AM »
I'm really at odds with myself on this one...

I agree with Scott that, at best, these are $8 figures...  The bubble and cardbacks were special, they took extra work/effort...  Packaging can be pricey, and that was probably as price (per item) as it gets.

If they're doing every figure from the vintage line (I'm somehow doubtful of that, but one never knows) then I think the cost of packaging becomes somewhat negated...

I'm not AGAINST more VOTC...  I think the quality in the VOTC is unmatched, even in ROTS's line (short of their SA figures and perhaps the Royal Guard/Senate Guard).

So to that end, I'd like more VOTC, but at $10 a pop I'm hesitant to let out a big "Yay!" on this one.  I guess we'll have to see what manner the VOTC could pan out.

I'm glad to hear the OTC style in general will come back.  I think it's the best to-date, and the most representative of Star Wars as a franchise.  I'm not a packaging fan, that's why I generally don't touch on it in my reviews, but even I was saving some of those OTC cardbacks.  :)

The only sign of intelligent life in Cleveland is the sign that says how far it is to Pittsburgh.

I vote Cleveland...  The armpit of America.

Happy Birthday to Diddly and Muftak...  Have a good one guys.

And Dale, I knew it!

The thing about the Utapau warrior is that Medon's NOT taller than a human by much really...  Those guys others are citing, I almost wonder if they aren't just officials overseeing things with the Clones?  Maybe not POW's?

I thought they were prisoners at one point too, but the outfits seem more ornate (making them taller then perhaps), and they're not the same as Medon as far as height goes.  He's right around Kenobi's height in the film.

1) Commander Cody

2) Coruscant Firefighter

3) Random Human Jedi (Male)

4) SA Sidious/Palpatine (red robes/Mace fight)

5) SA Utapau Clone

6) SA Kashyyk Clone (BARC Trooper?)

7) Commander Gree

8 ) SA SnowClone

9) New Battledroid (leg articulation, better plastic)

10) More White Clones...  SA preferred.

If done to-scale, it's probably one of my top vehicle wants right now...  that Hasbro's capable of doing properly anyway.

Working center tread would be great...  It's a fairly small vehicle, it's "exciting" in a way...  Was in a great action sequence and would complement the Wookiee Copter well enough...  I'd take one for sure, just so long as it's not fudged as far as numbers go.  I'd take a few actually since they were so numerous.  3 sounds about right, if not more.

They had a better Fleet Trooper (made out of vegetables) than Hasbro has done.    ;)

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: So how many times have you seen it?
« on: May 30, 2005, 03:14 AM »
4 after this weekend...  Would like to see it more but I'd be flying solo on that I fear.  My friends are tapped out and the gf said once was enough.  Damn.

May have to do the matinee any way for it...  Wish we had a digital screen within driving distance, but unfortunately it seems the armpit of U.S. (Cleveland) is the only place even remotely close with one...  unless the theater opening in July has one at it.   :-\
