He's been dealt with...  :)

I'm thinking not from what I've read but that's all jumbled together in my mind right now...

If I'm correct though, I think there's certain resources are good for different things on different planets...  It's not so much a game about resource gathering as much as it is about conquest though...  I think.  There's a lot of stuff about this in gaming rags over the last few months since it has been released.  I've read a lot of it and still can't figure out how they're going to make the final game play out.

It does look good...  I thought it looked like space-age Medeival: Total War! or something. :)  That's pretty great if it's the case.

Welcome aboard here at the site...

You're the only person I've seen who actually had a buff POTF2 figure collecting fetish. :)  That's a new one...  I don't think you're gonna have a hard time collecting those though.

Enjoy the site...  I'm not sure what you meant by your last lines there, but even though we're a relaxed site in regards to certain things we're also much stricter than other sites in many ways so I hope you're here with good intentions.

Welcome to the site however it is you stumbled upon us...  Good to see a new face.  Sounds like an ambitious endeavour for the EU chronicle...  Lotta material to cover for sure.

Enjoy, and if there's any questions or anything just ask one of the staff.

Luke was definitely arrogant in ESB...  He was at his height then.  foolhardy, rushing in to fight Vader, and not respecting Vader during the battle...  He paid for that too.

I like Luke's persona come ROTJ...  He is calm, indeed.  Even Vader's confrontation with him on Endor is a weird moment...  It's the first moment you see any level of humanity in Vader throughout the entire Saga really.  It's one of my favorite little parts of the classic trilogy though, no doubt.

Yeah I caught that Matt...  I love the Rancor eating someone in the middle of the battle.  Something humorous about that to me.

Sounded like groups of infantry actually kinda use a rebel yell or battle scream going into combat.  I hope that's the case, but subtle, as it's a nice touch.

Saw lots of other vehicles...  A mobile artillery rebel tank of some sort among others...  Some of the designs are a little cartoony looking, but the new Rebel tank that's been in every screenshot with Rebels in it so far has grown on me (it's noticeably different I think than early shots).  The trailer played all grainy on my PC...  I guess upgrade time's around the corner.   ::)

And "Mike At Rebelscum" is?

Nothing on their front page about it either...  Not to say that POTF cards (a POTF wave perhaps) isn't in the works...  It's been a rumor for a while so I wouldn't doubt it...  But nobody's really stretching their neck on POTF styled cards as a "sure thing" right now.

If they are, so be it... 

I'm glad to see Han in Carbonite's making it into the basic line, Just pondering how articulated the figure will wind up being.  interchangeable heads a possibility with that figure too?  It's one of my favorite Han moments though so the figure should rock.

I wonder how they'd have done him had he made his way into VOTC?  Like besides articulation, how he'd be "special" compared to his basic figure release that he seems to be getting.

I cut vehicles and Deluxe down to me buying only what I enjoy... 

Where I've accumulated "too much stuff" the most though is customizing fodder...  Bins, upon bins, upon bins...  Plastic bits and pieces...  sprues/trees that held model parts on them...  keys from dead keyboards...  bits and pieces of cheap toys/playsets...  shells/pieces from vintage Star Wars and GIJoes stuff...  a bin of duplicates and triplicates (or more) of various modern SW figures...  It's unreal.

My other area of "too much stuff" is 1:18 planes.  I'm just not as into them as armor and stuff, but the sheer lack of armor and stuff drove me to buy planes that I ultimately don't want...  Well I do want them, but I have absolutely nowhere to store/disaply them.  THey're awkward, BIG, and just cumbersome items.  If I thought I'd get my $ back (or better) I'd sell them I think...  I know like my P-38 isn't terribly valuable though, nor the Winter Stuka...  Impulse buys biting me in the ass I guess.

OK, so Shaak Ti's "deal" is that he/she was a gay guy posing as a highschool girl on a Star Wars forum?

I smell Jerry Springer's staff cooking up new show ideas...

At least you've seen the vehicles...  I'd love to walk into WM see the trucks and stuff, and put a nice lay-away down... 

Figures though, they're killing me.  That's WHAT I collect, and I can't find squat...  I mean, I like tanks and stuff but I can't always justify it.  The figures though I'd be building some nice armies of guys.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Wimpy/winey Luke....a SITH?

I've always looked at Luke as wanting to do the right thing... 

He choked the guards, but used the move passively compared to choking someone for burning your toast like Vader would do, and breaking their neck.  Hell, he killed people under interrogation...  Not the best guy you want handling your intelligence gathering sessions.   ::)  Let's make the blind guy a bomb-disposal engineer while we're at it.

The thing with Luke is he's trying, and trying to be good...  Lucas has said the character matured, the dark outfit in Jedi showed maturity but he still flirted to the darkside in his duel with Vader (but only upon extreme provocation...  And over "attachment", which has become such an immensely HUGE part of the saga as a whole)...  But in the end he still comes back...

Hell, he even gave Jabba plenty of time to just let the situation die and give him Solo...  I'm still at a loss as to what the plan was if Jabba would've accepted the droids, haha.

His outfits are so different...  I don't look at them really representing his growth much, save for the black one.  His duds in ESB are ALliance standard uniforms...  His outfit on Tatooine's just regular farmboy garb...  His Jedi outfit in ROTJ though just seems like his take on a Jedi's "plain clothes".  Ultimately he's not well versed in Jedi outfits and Obi-Wan didn't look terribly different from a lotta guys roaming Tatooine (and likely other planets).

I always thought it sorta bit that EU didn't take the black ROTJ outfit further, and when Luke starts the NJO that they don't wear similar Jedi duds to Luke's in ROTJ.  Like all of a sudden they all wanted to emulate Obi-Wan unless they were flying.

"That's a Man Baby!"

So I wonder which of the site's proudest that Shaak Ti actually was?

BTW, the most drunk guy in that picture was easily Jared...  His stoned-out-of-his-gourd look on his face, as he stares off into oblivion, is truly priceless.

It's a figure I haven't had the good fortune to find yet, but since they all seem to look different I guess looking for a specific paintjob is kind of pointless then?

Anakin's have just been a real bitch to find lately...  A local buddy has the Vader w/Table for me, but I really want this Anakin figure for my charred one...  Best paintjob I can find I guess.

Toy Reviews / Re: New JD Review: Agen Kolar (Jedi Master)
« on: July 28, 2005, 01:12 AM »
Agen's almost a good base to start from on a Mace...  I'd dig some new arms (at least forearms) of course, and stick some softgoods skirt pieces that match up to Mace and it could work ok...

I think the torso's just about right.

Thanks for the words man, and glad you stopped by...  Good figure overall, and easily one to pick a couple up if anyone wants to customize too.  He's great fodder.

I'm likely going to the gf's afterwards, but your place is on the way...  sorta.  Beers it be then.

I'm hoping for some good brews at John Harvard's too...  Good to see new people as well.  I just hope the show's good since this is the first Summer show in a long time...  And it's been known to be dead at times.
