Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Do You "Enter to Win"?
« on: May 12, 2005, 08:22 PM »
I tend to skip them over myself...  I don't know why.  I guess I just havent' had much luck winning things so I tend to bypass them.

However, Jedi Defender is giving away a Lava Vader!  [/end shameless plug]

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Your DVD Collection
« on: May 12, 2005, 08:20 PM »
Uhm, I have 10...  Counting my LOTR EE set and SWSE DVD set...

*sigh*  :(

I will say, I want to buy up more Hammer Horror films and stuff like that (Vincent Price flicks, etc.).  When I found out they were on DVD I was all like, hell yeah!

EDIT:

Oh and I just noticed your sig Jamie, that about made me do a spit take.  Definitely worthy of quoting.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Jedi After Episode 3?
« on: May 12, 2005, 06:46 PM »
I thought it was good...  I couldn't read it on my screen, though I could vaguely see writing....  That works though I guess.  Gotta remember that.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: ROTS Screening
« on: May 12, 2005, 06:44 PM »
I'm just thinking how neat it'll be to see it 2 nights in a row, more or less...  I'm on SW sensory overload right now.  It's not even funny really, I'm just all amped up about this stuff.

Can't wait...  Getting antsy!

Hey Hasbro! / Re: Could you possibly make a good Mace Windu?
« on: May 12, 2005, 06:42 PM »
Yeah, it'd be really nice to see some "Collection 2" styled main Jedi here later in the year...  Though part of me just hopes for Evolutions Assortments of some of them too, or at least Obi-Wan, but I'd take a "Jedi Evolutions" set.

A human child padawan, a human jedi knight, and a Mace Windu Jedi Master...  I'd milk that Evolutions series for every penney it could produce.

Other Collectibles / Re: Target SW Gift Card. You get one?
« on: May 12, 2005, 06:40 PM »
I've still yet to get a Target card with the light-up saber.  Kinda bummed I missed those now because they are quite nice looking.  I'd love one given the experiences I had on 4/2...  A nice momento. :)

« on: May 12, 2005, 04:21 PM »
I got a little good news...  Heard I may get to see it a day or two early at a private screening.  That'd be kinda neat I think...  I'm still doing the VIP thing at our Loew's Theater for the midnight show though...  That's going to simply be insane! 

I've seen all the prequal films by myself at midnight, actually, and now I'm gonna have a whole area of my buddies with me.  Should be a fun time.

Feedback / Re: DoctorPadawan's feedback
« on: May 12, 2005, 04:08 PM »
Add me to Dr. Padawan's happy list.  He helped me out with a few figures, one in particular, that I really appreciated, and he was very patient (hah...  Dr...  patient...  Anyway) with me getting him payment.

Thanks Michael, you rock!

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: My first customs (Clones)
« on: May 12, 2005, 05:01 AM »
That's good work man...  Very smooth painting, and from what I can see there's minimal brush strokes left (if any), very straight/smooth lines...  You did a goodjob.

Clone repaints are kind of the Astromech of the new generation of customizers I've noticed.  At one time, repainting an R2 was how people really got into the hobby.  It's that leaping board people needed to see that they can make their collection that much more diverse than what Hasbro will do for them...

Clones have taken that role now it would seem, and it's nice to see new faces giving things a try.  Hopefully you start getting into the more advanced stuff then like head/part swaps, and the like. 

What was it Obi Wan said?   "You've taken your first step into a much larger galaxy...."  :)  Customizing consumes you!  You wanna check out the more "advanced" stuff, just stop by www.FFURG.com or check other people's work out and get inspired.

Toy Reviews / New Review: Feltipern Trevagg
« on: May 12, 2005, 04:56 AM »

This guy's a freak, and you gotta love that!  Hasbro fleshed out some of the most obscure figures in plastic form when they unveiled their "Cantina Wave" to us, and boy did they make many a die-hard collector happy. 

Three Cantina aliens all at one time, and now I review the final figure from that fantastic wave, Feltipern Trevagg (Cantina Encounter)!

Read The Full Review Right Here, and as always I appreciate any feedback, comments, opinions or whatever if you'd like to share.

Basically, I liked the Cantina wave overall, even Dannik Jerriko, but part of me thinks I gave him props because I know I can fix him too...  Otherwise he's somewhat a letdown.

Feltipern won my heart as maybe my favorite figure of the wave though, with his fuzzy head, vibrant (and clean) colors, great articulation (all things considered), and what I think is probably the most accurate sculpt in the Cantina overall.  Hasbro knocked one out of the park as far as I can tell.

The figure's great, but read the full review to judge for yourself...  I recommend this wave to everyone though if you don't have a set.  They're the kinds of figures we put up with 10 horrendous efforts from Hasbro just to get this little bite of how good that company CAN be when they want to.  They make collecting worthwhile. :)

16.5" high (a hair less) should be the height if the figures are 1/52...  Though their scale seems suspect.  Many are a whole head taller than others.  It's insane with that line at times.

Brent, I too am looking to army build...  I'm trying to build up on the common troops to play under the WEG rules...  I wish they'd whip up a lot more soldiers and just do packs of common troops.   :-\

Hey JediSearch, welcome aboard....

That's a great link, I've never seen that before.  May come in handy actually from a customizing point of view.  You never know when little resources like that become pretty useful.  You can make your scripts semi-realistic, if you wanted, in dioramas and things.

Anyways, have a good time...  Hope you enjoy the place, and any questions you've got you're welcome to ask.

Modern Classifieds / Re: Anyone want VOTC Bubbles and Cards?
« on: May 12, 2005, 03:36 AM »
Scott,

I sold a ton over at FFURG's forums to a carded customizer.  You may wanna try that.  His nic there is Mecanno Man.  I dont' think he's on over here.

I agree with Rob...

You wanna blame someone, retail and Hasbro are right there...  Solid cases of Clones would sell.  3-packs of Clones would sell.  Clones sell.  Hasbro doesn't get the figures out there...  That's more the problem.  They shouldn't EVER offer a Clone as an exclusive.  To me, that was a bad move in and of itself.

The "Hoarder" title applies to people with other intents...  They want to trade to help themselves out (I don't necessarilly disagree with this), or the term as I more generally apply it is to people "investing".  Investor maybe is better than hoarder.  The guy who gets all the CLones he can thinking he'll make a buck down the road.  No different than a Scalper...

Army builders...  I know that's at least why SOME of the Clones are gone in my area, I can't fathom it isn't at least part of the reason I can't get a TE Gunner or Commander (Or #41 Clone, or Wookiee Warrior #2) in my area, but I also think scalpers/hoarders(investors) are in the mix there more.  And at least ARmy Builders are my collector buddies just with different styles...  The other guys are just jagoffs that are screwing the hobby over for personal gain.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Best Stormtrooper ????
« on: May 11, 2005, 03:10 AM »
TRU's they still appear in.  That's all I hear at this point though.

I'd like more myself...  Tough to come by for me, but our own Kneel Before Zod (Rob) has quite a hefty army. :)  He found lots.

I found that the biggest floodgate opening of them was when Wal-Mart clearanced the OTC/VOTC and stuff that never saw pegs at that store wound up hitting pegs for $7 or less!  I got 3 Stormies that way actually.
