Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Rebelscum Spam Mail? WTF???
« on: April 12, 2005, 07:34 AM »
I've been reading through things, and this is just a side comment I want to make because we are seeing an influx of new membership.  First I'll say we're happy to see all the new faces, we're happy you're here, and we're hoping for bigger and better conversation.

With that said, make no mistake that "quantity" increasing over at Jedi Defender isn't going to require a decline in quality either.  We have our rules established here, and we're (dare I say) even more strict than Rebelscum...  at least in some instances anyway.

A topic discussing an issue like this goes smoothly, but we've had our share of "trolls" too, and that's something Rebelscum rarely ever touches but which Jedi Defender will act swiftly to handle.  You can ask the people that are on our "banned" list how swiftly we act to behavior we deem inappropriate...  Condescending attitudes, name-calling, and  the like has earned more than one person a swift kick in the ass out our front door, not a doubt about that.

I know I came to Jedi Defender because my friends had come here, but also because i wanted to ESCAPE the post-padding, "kiddies", arrogant, rude, and condescending people who were allowed to basically walk on other members over at Scum, or run the show over there...  So needless to say, we run a tight ship here on some level as well, and definitely are more strict in our own ways.

So did we lock this thread once?  Yes, but it's not "close-minded" as Matt mentioned, but rather it's our way of saying "move along"...  The topic had new reason to be re-opened, but if things die down again and we feel it's time for people to move onto new discussion and forget about what's in the past, then it'll get another lock...  You can't dwell on the past forever, basically.

I do hope everyone enjoys their stay here, enjoys the format, enjoys each other's company, and most of all has as much fun as they possibly can in a completely different setting.

You didn't miss much Matt...  Jedilerious went on about not understanding your "thanks for the fish" tag, etc., and of course ended it with a healthy dose of "git" at the end because I guess he didn't want you over there.

To each their own...  I find it funny so many people would be so willing to let good established members walk away.  Not just the administration, but people who actually are invovled in the conversation end of the forums.  To me, the more good posters who leave, the less tolerable the community there (if you can call it a "community" anymore) becomes.

Oh well, I guess they figure for every good member lost there, they have a new GNT to step right up and post nonsense in their place.

I used to go to them many moons ago...

That was back before I participated much in forums, but the conversation piqued my interests.

Oh wait...  Sorry. 

Uhm, thanks to you too Chris.  You don't call "last call" on us, and we appreciate that too...  Best time I've spent in the Star Wars hobby online has been working here.

I never got one or two either Morg, so I dunno what the deal may be there...  And I'm actually one who wouldn't have been terribly bothered by it either, actually, but I am more towards the opinion others are sharing at simply getting no respect over yonder.

The real problem boiled down to the poor handling of the situation between site and members.  A total lack of respect for the people that make advertising even a viable option, and that's just bad form.  It is what it is though, and it apparantly won't change either.

Hey Ian, welcome over here...  Glad to see you amidst the troubles brewing and showing over this way.  Have fun, ask if anything comes to mind you're curious about.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Clone Trooper #6 - Worth Army Building

I figure I'm trying to spread it out over figs so I'm not so inclined to want 100 of the SA Clone coming.

I have YET to get any of the other Clones.  Just this #6 and the guards, but hopefully soon I'll get the others, and then find plenty of the SA Trooper too.  I want a lot of all of them at this point.

My dream is finding a bunch of people to go in on a case with me but who just want the officers.  I'd take every set of white clones for the case price (it's not too bad, like $6.25 or so per figure), but I don't need umpteen officers.   :-\

Happy birthday guys, what a time to have a b-day come and go what with all the new stuff out on the shelves.

I think some army builder cases should surface like this:

"Clone Case" that features Collection 1 Clone, TE Gunner, and Commander....

and a 2nd case that is a mix of Red/Blue guards, and a repaint of the preview Wookie Warrior.  I'd like a black furred one myself.

I didn't even get out today for it...  Bummer.

I was just reading through and thought the same thought Jared.  The knee articulation wouldn't hinder the feature at all, especially since pressing the hips (or the point of the articulation) would negate any possibility of knees having a negative effect on the action feature working.

The knees would've only helped him slightly had they been articulated though.  His "short comings" beyond his height are a bit too much to be counter-balanced by the thought of his knees being more poseable.  It would've been nice though.  I'm not so sure my opinion of the headsculpt is as bad as at first, I dunno.  SOmething about it is off but something seems right too...  The skin tone's definitely different though, and I just noticed his head is kinda oblong and weirdly shaped because of the ball/socket joint. 

Oh well, I'm jonesin' for a new Mace figure somewhere down the road that is simply a nicely articulated figure, maybe with Agen Kolar robes, but at this point I'd take a cloth robe if it was made like Ki Adi Mundi's robe is.

Added a couple clones.

Love that Collection 1 clone even, I'm amazed really.

Now just to add more Wookies and Royal/Senate Guards...  And hopefully then find Clone Commanders, Pilots, and TE Gunners.  :(  Had I stopped at Target on the way tot he toy show today, I'd ahve cleaned up, but unfortunately I didn't and the next guy came through and got them... 

You live and learn.  I was in a hurry to meet my buds though, and then another guy from our group scored them!  Damn.  :(

Bought Mace opening day...  The concept is great, the execution didn't live up though.  Mine's limbs are wobbly over time, which sucks.  His shoulders do protrude awkwardly.  His skin tone is goofy the more I look at it, as is his expression.  I just don't see Sam Jackson there.

His legs have no real articulation (softgoods and bendable knees, regardless of a feature, would've helped), and ultimately I'd agree with the notion he's short as well...  with no neck seemingly.

I would, and this is sad but true, still rank him superior to every Jedi from Saga's initial release.  He's better than Shaak Ti, Luminara, Plo, Sae See, Kit Fisto, etc...  All from Saga.  He's an abysmal failure compared to any Collection 2 Jedi from ROTS though.

I'd love to see a Col. 2 Mace done utilizing mostly just parts from Kolar, or whatever.  Save a buck and reuse some parts Hasbro, that's fine, but just deliver a better ROTS Mace.  Hell deliver a single GOOD Mace.  That would be amazing in and of itself since he's yet to get a truly great figure.

I wound up wiht extras of the Outlander wave for $5 each, a couple E1 battledroids for $3-ish each.  I got an IMp. officer (blonde variant) for $5 as well.

I got two beast/junk thingies for customizing.  One's going to be a neat Stormtrooper mount on a swamp planet with another one (it's actually dino bones of some sort) I'll use for a diorama piece.

Got a G.I. Joe I wanted for $8 just for his one accessory thing.  Very cool piece I plan to use for customs.

Nabbed a couple ROTS figs on the way home but nothing special.

Didn't buy much, just wnet home dead-ass tired and slept most of the evening.
