Nice figs DD...

I like seeing the Rodian from JO just because it's a Rodian from JO...  not an every day figure you see...  Very cool use of something most of us have one or two (or a dozen) of.  I like the sheer diversity in all the Rodian figures Hasbro's done over the years (all the Greedo's anyway) since they really alll look like different guys.  I stick one with a gun drawn on Han, and that's Greedo.  The rest are just thugs.

Anyway, the R5's good too, late bloomer or not, it's a very unique paintjob, not the norm to see a dark, but not black, paintjob on astro's.  Very good...  Lots of good damage marks on him too.  I like what looks like a black starburst on the bottom lip of his dome.

The mask you're working on for SaeSee should be interesting...  I've been a little perplexed how it'll be done to seal the head...  Can't just go hopping into space with skin exposed.  I'm anxious to see that final item to polish the figure off.

Hey Matt, thanks man.  I am personally intrigued by the military episode on the 18th.  Gonna tape that I think if I can't catch it.

Appreciate the link for that, I didn't know that was on.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: ROTS news article thread

I have to say, even without having seen the film, I'm so tired of reading reviews that cite dialogue as being what effectively (to them) "ruins" the film for them...

I think it's one thing to acknowledge a flaw, but dialogue hardly ruins the films...  I believe Ebert said it best that the it's never been good in SW, and never will be, and you have to look past it to see what a good story is there.

I think that depends then more on how much you LIKE the old games than the backwards compatibility feature...

Like I still play N64 Rogue Squad, Shadows of the Empire, and other games that appealed to me for story or whatever...  That's kind of where backwards compatibility plays a part for me...  I'll want to play Rogue Leader and Rebelstrike on the new Nintendo should I get it, or my XB games I enjoy immensely like Full Spectrum Warrior.  For some people it's that "comfort" of knowing you can if you want to, but for me it's practical because I DO want to play those old games sometimes.

Is it important?

Yes.

Why?

I would give my X-Box to my gf's kids in a heartbeat if i knew I could play my old games on the new system...  I do like playing my old games, and I do like minimizing the # of systems I have on one shelf.  With an N64, Cube, XB, and potentially any one of these new systems, the entertainment stand needs all the room it can obtain. ;)

So yeah, I'd like backwards compatibility a lot...  My old games get as much wear/tear (the ones I really enjoyed anyway) as my newest ones do, so long as I have the time.  Beyond backwards compatibility though, if this system is indeed making MP gaming their focus, that's a bigger issue to me and if the games are catered to that same mode of thought it's more than enough reason for me not to get the new XB.  Like everything else, I'll look at everything before I buy and get what bets suited me.  Back in the day it was the Cube for me, and when XB came down in price it suited me as well, so I'll see what Sony/Nintendo offer and pick which one I want the most and get it.

Not that I'd roll her out of bed, but Trish just never did it for me.  I don't like women with shoulders broader than my own.  She's a stocky thing.

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: SA Arc Commander from CW toon
« on: May 16, 2005, 12:32 AM »
Again, lots of praise on that figure Redgek, very nice.  The subtle arm details are nice given how the original ARC's looked from teh CW line with the big forearm gauntlets.  I'm not sure they were bad, but I think they could've been improved over big silver things.

I like the Katarn Bryar pistols but they seem a bit big...  The Bryar's actually a sawed off rifle, more than a military gun, but the Bryar's seem to match up to the cartoon (while still having a realistic sculpt figure) very well...  They don't fit in the holsters though, huh?  That's a bummer.  I think I'd probably have gone with the COmmander pistols just to utilize the holster I guess.

Anyway, great figure...  I wish Hasbro would get on doing this figure up like this, actually.  E2 Clones are just too rough to come by yet for me to wanna try this.

Other Collectibles / Re: Attakus Dioramas... 3.75" Scale?
« on: May 16, 2005, 12:28 AM »
Too bad it's just half a ship.  I wonder how they could do the other half for a Hoth diorama?  :)  Voila, complete Falcon.

I wonder what the scale is on that though? The Falcon varies a lot in the movies...  3 foot seems small by a bit, but that'd be great if it was 100% to-scale.

At least it appears that the whole cockpit is there, if it's to-scale.  That'd make a LOT of folks happy I think.

Jagr looking like he actually was still an NHLer...  I'm amazed.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Wookiee Army
« on: May 15, 2005, 06:29 PM »
Eeee, yikes...   :-\

I picked a couple Wookiee's up the other night at Target and Wal-Mart...  Got cream and brown variants in the same night, and honestly I'm not impressed.

He could be worse, but his goofy legs are just like Tarful's...  Not to mention they're pre-posed and it makes standing the figure tough (damn "walking" sculpt to them).  I much prefer the preview Wookiee, and I think Hasbro didn't do this figure justice like that one.  Color me unimpressed.

Not to mention that my cream wookiee's arms keep falling off.  I'm really not pleased with these figures.

I hope the film makes some mention why some Wookiees are absolutely HUGE while others are tiny by comparison as well...  This species is all over the place in toy form, and I'm hoping this is not just a Hasbro flub and that they're all comparable in the movie.

Simmer down now!

Let's not spark the political stuff...  Friendly jabs (if that's what it is) are fine, but the political BS stays off the site, that's our rule.

I have printed out templates to make an AT-PT though (out of paper) I will probably try that out sometime, but am unsure of what paper to use.

Have you considered using a paper model?  There's free downloadable paper models online, and one I saw was an AT-PT I'm sure.  Could make a good stand-in at least in a game...  Maybe even be good enough for you to try scratch-building your own from plastic. 

Paper Models are good stuff...  I just buy a heavy weight paper at an Office Supply store and print them out on that on my basic color printer.

Yeah I've seen a ton now at retail...  I wouldn't call it rare anymore, but it's amazing what people can do to a single area if they have the means to buy up all the stock.

Right now, my area seems to have had plenty of the Clones in and now some seem to sit a little due to the price.

I'd say, currently, nobody is "right" on this...  The Visual Dictionary is as much a piece of EU as anything...  So is the "Official Site's Databank", Comic Books, or pretty much anything else...

I think everyone, despite what's in print form anywhere, should judge by the film only as to what's "fact" or not.  The Databank puts AT-AT heights at 15m when the film shows they're clearly a bit larger...  If we're discussing "canon vs. non-canon", then the films will forever be the only true evidence, and so far nobody's got that backing them up.
