Other Toy Lines / Re: Terminator Toy Line... 4" Scale.
« on: April 5, 2005, 10:50 PM »
Yeah, not sure how I feel either... 

I don't usually look hard at packaging, and I don't look hard for paint aps unless it's a SW figure, but if this is gonna be a thing where you don't know if you're getting your 4th John Connor or the one figure you do need, then that would suck butt. 

If it's army builders galore, I wouldn't care at all though either.

I was told that it was a mistake, and that I've been around too long to be banned for someone else's actions.  Which is fair (to me at least) - I'd like to see a similar offer extended to Jesse and a few of the others. 

I'm not gonna count on that happening, but thank you for the sentiment, Rob.

Celebration III: Indianapolis / Re: Lucas to attend CIII
« on: April 5, 2005, 10:10 PM »
I'd like to see him...  It's one of the few things I'd always appreciate having done I think.  Being "near" Lucas, the cause for my hobby as it stands today.

I don't agree with his artistic visions all the time, but it's his thing too.  I loathe revision over any mistakes his made in the prequals.  To me that's bastardizing art.

I'll definitely see him because he's done more good for me than bad.  That much I can safely say in my heart.  I'd love to have a chat with him, that'd rock.

Almost everything is potential fodder.  The Jedi of course are some of the best, and the next up would be the guards.

Figs like Organa, Mon Mothma, etc., are all great fodder too though...  I actually wish the preview Wookie would show up again because he's dwindled in my area some.  I didn't get many of him on Clearance like I'd like to have done.  :(  He was pretty good fodder.  The upcoming 2nd warrior is good too...  All great repaint material.

Some of the collection 1 figs are less than stellar as not just figures but fodder too.  Obi's, Ani's, Mace...  Bleh.  That's not the majority though.

Even Clones have repaint potential beyond their army building qualities.

I don't have many figures yet, just a few, but I know I'll be buying extras as time/$ permit...  For customs and army building.

Bring 'em on by Jess, no doubt we'll help you with getting a headcast, paint him up...  Something definitely cool and different to add to your shelf.

There's a lot of potential to expanding your display shelves within the customizing hobby, so I think you'd dig checking things out.  We have lots of stuff to display, so make sure you come by the booth or just find me and I'll run you by and introduce you to the gang...  I'll likely be with the JD guys as it is, if not by myself wandering around the show.

We were all camped out at Midnight Madness that whole night anyway...   

I was home...  Not that I did anything, but I was here Friday night, sadly.   :-\

Hey Anthony, welcome over to JD...  Any friend of Matt's, and all that stuff... 

Have a good time, make fun of Matt all you want (and his sweaters of bright pink), and take it easy.

He just has Dustin continuously hit us with their standard form banning e-mail, with no reasons included whatsoever.

Wow!

So should I thank Dustin for not clogging my email box then?  Because I didn't even get the courtesy of a letter, haha.  :)  I was just not allowed in one day...

I dunno Dustin from a hole in the ground to comment on the guy...  I am sure he's just "doing his job" as it were so I try not to be too hard on him.  He's perhaps just loyal to his boss...  Plus, I think it's not Dustin's job to handle Phlip's work.  It's obvious he was the one who was involved in this, made this decision, and his lack of communication is what I have no respect for.  He's old enough, and experienced enough (I'd think) to know better than that, and to handle things in a better manner more befitting a man of his age/stature.

Like I said, my biggest disappointment isn't being locked from a site I really didn't have much interest in anyway.  I learned to live w/out after 1 day, it's all good. 

My disappointment was in a man I had some respect for, who I thought better of overall, and in finding out that he wasn't anything I imagined.  I was, simply, disappointed in Philip, and that's that.  He's welcome to do as he pleases though, and I'm welcome to look at it and judge it as negative when I know I'd not have acted/reacted in the same manner. 

I too am a businessman, a Star Wars fan, and at least am a staff member (just not running the show, but Chris allows us all to have a voice as clear as his own) for a SW site that sees its own fair share of traffic daily.
 
I know what I'd have done, and I know it wouldn't have taken any pointers from my experiences at Rebelscum.

Hey Matt,

Welcome on over, glad to see you.  I'll have you know that I have the entire video games section devoted to Force Commander and its raw greatness in holding together the RTS genre for Star Wars gaming single-handedly.

After reading my quote, I don't mean to sound like I was gloating that I gave that kid the Tarful either, as it really was the more generally right thing to do...  Sorry I sounded that way (I need to proofread).  I just thought it was actually funny...  Didn't want a pat on the back though.

If you'd have heard his, "Oh man!  Yeah!!!" after his mother asked if he would want "this guy that is like a Wookiee" that I handed to him/her...  it was funny as hell really. 

I'm hearing lots of other figures out...  Lotta guys said TRU had some higher # figs like Mas Ameda and that around here as well, but Target and WM really seemed to drop the ball on getting those other figs.  They had like the first 24 or so mostly.
