Original Trilogy Collection / Re: OTC DVD Sets
« on: September 14, 2004, 07:40 PM »
I want the ROTJ set because I never got that Emperor, and I like the Stormtrooper...

Seems cool enough to me in that regard.  Beyond that though, they're just "eh".  more repacks nobody wants.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: TRU Endor 4 Pack
« on: September 14, 2004, 07:39 PM »
I too now see a veritable "sea" of OTC boxes of these Endor sets.  Horrible little buggers they are.

They are now the proverbial "Bionic-Toby" which has clogged the Toilet that is TRU.  Terrible idea, seriously.  Not an enticing piece in any way, shape, or form. 

I'm just in awe of how terrible the 4-packs went downhill from Set #1, to #2, to #3 and so on...  They have just decreased in quality.  At least the Naboo set is of value to people, but really the others had such major potential, which we've all hashed over many times, but nonetheless the point stands that these things moved great with the right pack-in accessory or the right "army builder" focus to it.

I'd be all for a Cloud City set with a kitbashed ICMG, 2 variant Bespin Guards (The Carbon Freeze set pack-in guy with a new head and removable hat, and a POTJ with new head/ethnicity), and some Ugnaught repaints and a silver C-3PO for the foul-mouth protocol droid.

Pack in a new accessory or droid "junk" just made up of a white IG-88 and some randomly cast and "distressed" droid parts, and I'd be all for this.  Or a cobbled together "light-up" Han Carbonite iwth clear hover-stand?

Hasbro gotta pick up a clue at the store some time because they're missing out on how to make this a profitable, inexpensive way to get exclusives out that SELL awesomely well.

I'd say a mix...  Kinda like Clone Wars.  Clone Wars really had an adult feel, but my gf's kids really enjoyed it immensely.  I remember her youngest laughing his ass off at the Clone's being smacked around by Assajj in the forrest, and he liked Durge with his biker droid army too.

It's nice when adults and kids can enjoy something simultaneously...  Unfortunately Lucas himself can't maintain a balance like that.

The Batman Animated Series was definitely aimed at both though I believe.  Adults could get into it seriously, but it wasn't too violent for kids, it had humor both could follow and laugh at...  That's good stuff. 

Kinda like Toy Story I think...  To use a comparison.  But a lot less funny than Toy Story.  :)

Chewie's, "That Old Man's Mad." just rocked.

Ever wanted to know what Chewie said about Obi-Wan?  There ya have it, straight from the wookie's mouth.

Reminiscent of "Oh ****, Spaceballs...  There goes the planet", isn't it? :)

Yeah, and the EoD thing kinda had clear daylight shots of Han's coat it seemed...  No disputing color then if you ask me.  It looked browner than ever really.

Anyone catch anything "new" in the Empire of Dreams on A&E TOnight?

I saw POte Snitkin's death for the first time ever...  I also saw a neat forward shot of the Barge when Leia kills the lights and the shudders close.

Anyone notice all the aliens running and Yakface looking just utterly confused and spinning in a circle sort of?

Also, pretty damn clear shots of Han's HOth coat.  Let the debate gain some more fuel now!

Great stuff...  Lots of cut footage.  A quick glimpse of the Luke/Biggs footage too, but not much.  Just a behind the scenes thing and it's them filming that sequence outside Tosche Station.

Oh man, why even try Pulp Fiction?  It had to have been like a half hour film then. :)

Hammil's even done voicing in video games princess.  In Wing Commander he was digitally put into the game as well.  He's made a real career on cartoon voicing, but his voicing the Joker on Batman Animated Series is his best...  Really neat character and all.

Watto's Junk Yard / Funny Movie Edits...
« on: September 12, 2004, 10:54 PM »
Anyone enjoy good (bad) movie edits that are put onto TV? 

As I watched the A&E Special on Star Wars this evening (very good by the way), I was ******* around watching The Patriot on TNT.  TNT's shown graphic stuff before, like Andersonville (its own film), Gettysburg, etc...  I seem to recall violence in those galore.

The Patriot had HORRIBLE edits in it though.  I mean big cuta-aways with the sound left in tact...  Fight scenes which have the speed increased to a comical Benny Hill level to make the edit "fit".

I can only imagine Gibson's other spirit-rouser Brave Heart which made The Patriot look like a kiddie film in its levels of graphic violence.

Other films I've seen have really awesome made up words snuck into them to replace swearing, which really often makes for a good bellie laugh from me I know.

Anyone love watching horrible TV editing jobs though?  This is really kinda sad, but comical nonetheless.

Steelers 24, Oakland 21, and Jesse +$50.00

:)  Here we go Steelers here we go!

The game was REALLY good and Oakland made a nice run at the end that I missed because I had to go pick up some food for supper.  Fun to be back in Football season.

Other Toy Lines / Re: The Official 21st Century Toys Thread
« on: September 12, 2004, 03:34 PM »
One was pictured, dunno what came of it or if it's due this year or next...  With 21st stuff you really can't gauge when it's coming. 

They're piss poor about accurate street dates.  What's worse is you never even know if you'll even see one in your area, or if you'll be relegated to going online for it.

As far as HTUSA carrying this stuff, some do and some don't...  Mine doesn't for instance, but I've heard others have extensive selection at good/fair prices.  Even figures.

Hit or miss...  I've not been to my HTUSA in probably 3 months or so, so I can't even say mine DOESN'T carry these still.  They may now.

Don't drink?  That's unamerican!  haha j/k...  You hear that enough I'm sure.  :P  (I mean that in a funny/haha way of course)

Uhm, birthday cake then?  Rest of us will drink in the meantime.

Plus, no rounds for the crowd...  You REALLY don't drink if ya don't know that your friends pick up your tab on your B-Day...  If they're good friends at least Rob.  :)

Other Collectibles / Re: WOTC SW Miniatures (RPG/CMG/Clix)
« on: September 11, 2004, 02:26 AM »
haha, you guys are nuts. :)

So does anyone think they'll play the OLD SW Minis game with these?  It's more involved, but visually it's like combining Chess (without the simpler rules), with diorama building...

If I get into these, my goal's to have a set of individuals and army build galore with any and all troopers, officers, etc...  Customizing too.

I've only got the two promos I've been given so far though.  :-X

Modern Classifieds / Stuff I Want To Buy (Loose, Carded, Various)
« on: September 10, 2004, 11:47 PM »
I figure I'd throw this up here...

I'm wanting to buy lots of things listed below...

If anyone can, I'd appreciate any help, though items marked with *** are my main priorities at this point.  I listed some ROTS stuff that, while I'm not "paniced" on it, I would buy some extras anyone had maybe nabbed and didn't mind passing on if they wanted to...  was trying to buy "in bulk" with those a little to make shipping worth it.  They've been a royal pain to find around here, but hopefully that'll change. :)

Episode One:

-Battledroids (POTJ Security Droid as well) Any Variation
-Blue Pilot Droid w/mini tank
-AAT(ATT?) Model Kit (The large scale one)
-Destroyer Droids (First or Battledamage)
-Slice Apart Battledroid (from Playset)
-STAP (any version) w/Battledroid
-Droid Fighter 3-pack (with the 1 walking droid)

POTJ:
-Imperial Officer
-R2-Q5 or R4-M9 (or whatever those droids names are)
-Boomer Damage BD (buy in multiples!)
-Mon Calamari Officer/Trooper

Saga Basic:

-McQuarrie Trooper
-Imperial Officers (Blonde or Brown hair)
-Capt. Antilles
-Adm. Ozzel
-Red Battledroids (Target Accessory, Basic, or 3-pack)

Saga Deluxe/Ultra:

-Super Battledroid Builder Set (The Playdoh set) ***
-Gen. Riekean (computer screens only, though I'll take the whole set if people have it for the right price)

Clone Wars Basic:

-Red ARC Trooper *** 
-SA Clone Trooper

-EE SA Clone Army Builders (White, Clone or Battle-Damaged)

Vintage OTC:

-Stormtrooper   ***

Revenge Of The Sith: (Would like to buy multiples to make it worth the shipping)

-#41 Clone Trooper (Super Articulated)
-AT-TE Gunner
-#6 Clone Trooper (Not high priority)
-Turbo Tank Driver
-Preview Wookiee Warrior
-Tarkin
-Medical Droid
-Polis Masaan
-Royal Guards (Blue or Red)

Vintage Weapons:

-Need lots, all originals, so if anyone deals in these, by all means I'd appreciate a note of what you have.  I need the regulars, especially Leia guns and the like, but other random pieces like Ewok weapons and such, as well.  Especially looking for original Jedi and Bespin Luke sabers (blue, green, and yellow), and a brown Yoda snake...  Also looking for POTF Ewok weapons (spears, bows, quivers).

Thanks for the help guys/gals!
