Star Wars Universe / Re: Revenge of the Sith made all EU wrong!
« on: August 18, 2005, 05:43 PM »
Exactly...  I don't think that's reaching at all.  That's growth.  You can't have your master hold your hand for life.  It's like when Luke went to confront Vader/Emperor...

Why wouldn't/couldn't Obi-Wan help him there?  Seems to me that your own free-will and growth are important aspects of becoming a Jedi Master.  You have to grow, and you can't do that if you're constantly being hand-held by someone...  Maybe the dead Jedi realized that and Obi-Wan saw it was Luke's time to become his own man and re-establish the Jedi Order as he saw fit.

I find it very interesting then the way that the NJO comes about as allowing attachment and stuff...  The perils still exist for them that they had previously, but it sorta curbs the possibility of Vader-ish things happening.  I dig that way that EU tied in sorta (but not really) with ROTS.  Freaky.

I heard a thud...  Must've been Matt hitting his head off a wall in frustration.   :-*

Revenge of the Sith / Re: What ROTS Repacks do YOU want to see?
« on: August 18, 2005, 05:34 PM »
If we're talking about what we want repacked into another line (IE: Saga 2006), then here's what I'd dig:

-Royal Guards (Blue & Red)...  To me these are repack fodder for years to come.  Make a third one with the open-faced TPM helmet and I'm game for that too.  A nice pike accessory would help as well.

-C-3PO...  Though I agree with Jeff I'd rather see a SA 3PO, or at least one with joints at the bicep, wrists, and hinged knees.  SA's tough on 3PO, but when I was reviewing the figure I noticed that the sockets they used for his pull-apart feature could easily be applied to working knee joints, and swivels at the bottom of his shoulder plate/top bicep plate, and his wrists.  They can do better.  

That said though, a 3PO ROTS re-release with a silver shin would be an ok re-release...  They're far from perfection on this guy though.

-Wookiee Warrior...  I agree with a re-release of him CHEWIE, actually, so I gotta go against you on that one Jeff. ;)  I'd like multiple colors of the Preview Wookiee actually...  A black one with brown stripes would rock, as would a cream one...  Head variations would be nice too.

I don't want that other Wookiee re-released though.  I despise that figure, and wish they'd resculpt a "normal" sized Wookiee for the line that was at least as poseable as the Preview.  Then again I think they should resculpt Tarrful as well so he's more poseable.  Hasbro dropped the ball bigtime with the ROTS Wookiees.

-AT-TE Gunner...  Give him some flavors even.  Most people use him as a grunt I figure, so may as well make him in Utapau, Coruscant, and 501st colors...  I'd take EU colors too.  He's just a good figure and adds some diversity to the ranks.

-#41 and #6 Clones...  I know not all will agree with my opinion of the #6 being re-released, but I liked it, and it's the Clone I can get to kneel better than any other for prone poses.  Again, release them in all the film colors, and add in some EU colors too and I'm a happy camper, though I agree that whites are good too (I wouldn't release the #6 in white however, just the SA one).

And as a little addition...  They should be releasing SA Episode 2 Clones in white as well.  Why they don't, I don't know.  SA Stormtrooper (VOTC and the Evolutions Sandtrooper) should also be making their routine rounds on the pegs.  Hasbro needs to just **** or get off the pot on this one though.

Those are the figures I currently would like re-released across different lines...

If we're talking just stuff released within the ROTS line that's currently running though?

I'd like to see a SLIGHT re-release (IE: Don't flood the pegs) of a lot of different figures/characters.

-Obi-Wan
-Anakin
-Dooku
-Clones (Of course)
-Mace Windu

Those are probably the top ones I'd like to see a re-release on though...  I know I've been trying to track a Mace down for the boys but I can't find one.  

Isn't most of that stuff getting mixed into later assortments though I figure?

That Leah chick was great till I heard her on Howard Stern and my god she's a bitch.  Really snappy, really mean...  Hot yes, but obnoxious like I had never imagined.  Very rude, couldn't take jokes...  Total turn-off.

Do we have to "cuddle"?  If not then yeah she's still great.

Many of us "veterans" tried to help out, but we got pelted with crap from people who just wanted to shill their own **** and not give back to the group, something against the principles of the FF.

That's a good example of why the Customs area at Scum's so goddam disappointing.

A lot of  "Hey, that is great!" posts and that's it.  Not that one-line posts that took 0 thought are uncommon in general over yonder, but it was in the customizing area where it became downright irritating.

There's a handful of guys who only want to hear "hey, that's great", and that's it.  They're the guys that if you do offer criticism constructively they don't reply to you at all because that's not what they're there to do.  They often don't go in-depth in explaining how they created something either.  Gotta love that kind of personality.   ::)

The whole thing of just praising people's work without ever talking about it just blew so hard though, and then some people even getting "offended" when you gave opinions on it that weren't solid praise...  I think it's just that people either didn't want to be offensive and were shy about criticism or they were just more post-padders (who'da thunk that huh?), so the whole thing just fell apart.

FFURG is a place for learning though...  Plus it's nice to just see customizers controlling their forum.  I hated that Philip ran the goddam Listserver when it was up and active even because he did NOTHING to curb off-topic traffic and the like.  I absolutely hated that (and it's that very inactivity that killed the old listserver as well...  It's that same blind eye he turns to the Forums at Scum.  He doesn't give a **** so he doesn't put forth effort on these projects of his).

The Email Server, in its death throws, was the biggest cluster**** on the internet if you can imagine that.  It degenerated into pretty much a place for people to talk about Star Wars (anything and everything) and clog your email box...  You also had the obligatory bafoon sending SPAM or chain letters and such to the list too...  I like that FFURG controls 1000+ member forum that holds something true to the old list server's intent, and that Philip has nothing to do with as far as the way it is run.  It's run by customizers, as it should be.

No, that's the war refit one right?  I'm talking about Adm. Riker's Enterprise from "All Good Things..."

I've had the good fortune to have real and fake bounce off my head...  Maybe I'm greedy but I'd take them all, know what I mean?

I thought the AOTC was the same as the ROTS?

OK so the ship from TOS which saw actual refits was offed in in Search For Spock...  Then the A came in, but didn't have a sequence showing it get destroyed?  And then the B's the one they commissioned at the opening of Generations in the prologue.  The C's only seen in TNG's one episode, and then of course the D throughout, and then the E in First Contact...  Dunno what the tri-nacelled one's designation was in the final episode of TNG though, but that's another.

I'm really fascinated by this. :)  Sorry for the off-topic Star Trek nerdiness Jay and I just had.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS Deluxe Clone 3-packs
« on: August 18, 2005, 01:15 AM »
I know when I was young, GIJ won out over Star Wars in 1982 (with me anyway) because GIJ was just a better toy...  He was poseable, though at the time that term really didn't pop into my mind...  Like my girl's kids, he "moved" I guess was what I was thinking.

What I remember buying vintage SW figures for was to give their cool coat or pistol to the GIJ I liked the best, haha.

The boys now want AT-RT drivers and a Clone Evolutions set after watching me putz on the computer without me knowing.   ::)  I can't find those FOR MYSELF.   >:(  Ugh.

I wonder what kind of performance you can expect out of those?  I'd imagine comparable...  Should be interesting to see.

Thanks sfg

I hope you're in good spirits right now Shannon...  Was just thinking about how you're feeling the other day, as was my gf.  We were talking about some friends we have who are not up-to-snuff right now...  You'll be ok though I'm sure, just keep the good energy going!

First...

Well, Jesse and Chewie have both tried to get me over here so, here I am.   :P

With RS down for a while I'll need to get my fix somewhere and if I can do that without endless posts of crap in the modern sections I may just stay!


   E...

Holy ****, you're here Eric! :)

Big E's a memeber of the PSWCS, and a buddy of mine.  Also was my line buddy at Celebration 3 (along with Jeff and Jason), where I was pretty much flew solo during the event for 90% of my time at it.  Me and E cashed in our badges for our store goodies together.

Good times man!  You gotta get out to Western PA sometime bud.  Glad to have you aboard finally.

Second...

If anything we've worked against increases in traffic at our site considering we like to "weed out" the people who are here to just be peckerheads.  And they do show up...  Some of them are the people that some of us have had issues with elsewhere, some are just post-padding morons that fit in better at Rebelscum since there's many of their ilk to compete with...  But either way we don't just let them play their game, they get das boot.  Sure they could increase traffic, but why let them drag our home down?  **** that, and **** them.

Third...

Creature Cantina.com sucks.  Sorry Bill.  You've known this.

Nice score on the Japanese figures Vator...  Wish I could find them myself.  Can you post any pictures or give some reviews?

I wish 21st would get over itself with these asinine headsculpts they keep doing though.  You get liek 2 neutral guys then a buncha screaming guys.  Looks like half the group is in a Banzai charge by the pics I've seen.  :-\
