Revenge of the Sith / Re: Would you have changed the Preview Wave?

In my neck, the R3 actually sold better than Jango or Zam, and I'd say it was on-par with the Clone...  Ironically those figures shipped again to TRU not TOO long ago (I think most areas were seeing that), and I actually couldn't get another R3 (was hoping to find one or two to repaint), whereas I saw all the other 3...

Still see almost all the other 3 though the Clone is drying up now as well.  R3's long gone again though out here.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Basic Figure Leak: Already?
« on: February 3, 2005, 08:05 PM »
My favorite is that apparantly INDY plans his stops based on the front page news of sites like us, Scum, or GH...    They're all reliable sites (not to toot our own horn) and it's funny that ours just doesn't set well with INDY or Pete_Fett or some others...  :)

INDY then can't find E3 figures leaked early on his way to school or work, so he then cries foul.  I guess every time I visit the Pittsburgh local forum, and my buddy Dave or Bob says "Hey, figures here...." and I go that evening to look and they have nothing, that apparantly I should assume Dave and Bob lied to me or something?

It makes no sense...

You truly were (and are) banging your head off a brick wall on that one Matt.  They're gonna come back again and again with the reply that you "simply don't understand" what they're saying, even though you've answered them clearly every time.

Fight the good fight though...  I find it even better than Mike Sullenger at GH pretty much confirmed us, and then Dan Curto from Scum came in and verified it too...  But the die-hards there won't back off their argument.  To them they need to see the body I guess.

I wonder if they act this immature when "The Swami" posts a list of figures?  I know I just get giddy at the thought of what is pretty well coming out soon, while I guess Pete_Fett and INDY just sit and brude till they wait on Hasbro to get off their ass and announce it...  Or is that news they are ok with?

I think a soldier you re-release later in the regular line more abundantly (even if you relase a lotta Preview figs) is a good idea...

I like an astromech myself though.  Hell I think astromechs should make it into tons of waves (classic and prequal) just because they sell, they cost little, and...  uh...  they sell.  I dig the little roving trash cans.

I think a Clone in the preview wave's a good idea.  A SA, action feature-less clone that would see a re-release LATER on after the film's blitz...  Or, if I had my way, he'd be the Clone relased in the regular line, but I digress.

The Wookie Warrior's good, especialy if he's getting a basic line variant too.

That'd leave a spot open for me to keep either Greivous or Tion, or nix them both...  Part of me says a Greivous, just to pump people, is necessary so I'd likely leave him.

What?  Did he turn into Jello at this point?  :)  (I can't stand him, sorry)

I dunno...  High School Hockey's taking some steam here now that the Steelers are done...  Pitt Basketball's all we got till Spring Training, and I hate baseball so that nixes much for sports for me till Steelers kick in again...

They've been playing Pens highlight games.  I was heading out and caught that they were airing Lemieux's first game the other night, I think...  That or it was just a highlight for part of some show, but it was a long-ass highlight.

Oh well.  :-\

Other Toy Lines / Re: Terminator Toy Line... 4" Scale.
« on: February 2, 2005, 09:04 PM »

I hope the T2 line isn't limited to like Arnie, an Endo Termie, or things like that...  The line was described specifically as an "army builder" toy line... 

Could it be we'll see resistance fighter/Endo Skeleton 2-packs?  Perhaps a vehicle or two?  That'd be some ideal stuff.  The human resistance aspect of the Terminator series always intrigued me more than the time-travel storylines...  I preferred the flashback scenes MUCh more.  That's a series unto itself that I'd watch intently.

The aliens...  That's a toughie on scale because they varied in the films even, but the costume was actually a guy in it in the original alien, and also in Aliens too I believe (at least at times), and so the height's about that of an average dude...

I've never compared the kenner figures to Hasbro SW figures, but if I held one of those aliens next to VOTC Han, Bespin Capture Han, etc. and it matched up fairly well (little taller but looked like an average size guy in a big costume), then I would think highly of the scale... 

I want to get some of those figures.  Some are in stock I just am not real high on fundage right now...  I could definitely at least use an alien and a predator...  Just something for a little taste of what the others would be like.

This talk of 4"-ish scaled figures really has me jonesing even more for figures in this scale.

LOTR right now would be my ultimate pick for the 1:18-ish scale treatment...  Star Trek would be right up there though so those sound intriguing.

What I like about those kits you showed me Mr.PL is that they appear to actually yield a VERY poseable figure.  As poseable or more so than most any SW figure short of perhaps a SA figure.  I'm intrigued and may just get a couple of what they do have to test them out...  Pose 'em next to a Stormie squad like they're ripping them apart. :)

Well, he's dead at least...

We can always just say a really tough stormtrooper punched him in the chest and caved it in.  That's why it looks like it does. :)

His helmet sticking to his head, even when dead, will always be an enigma though.

Hey Christopher,

Welcome to Jedi Defender, and it'll be nice having someone active in the vintage area and video games...  Good to have the additional voices in those two areas.

Thanks for stopping by and if you've got any questions feel free to ask away...  I'm sure you're used to the routine from other boards though.  We keep things loose here though so enjoy yourself.

Take it easy man,

 :-\  Well, it seems like they don't have many of them, and those they do have are sold out for the most part (not all)...  That sorta sucks.

I wonder where I could get a case, and what it'd run me?  I'd dig having one of those chase figures, bigtime!

Holy **** MisterPL, you sir rock!  :)  Now to figure out where they are to order at AHQ.

Episode 1 / Re: Anyone else army build with EP1?
« on: February 1, 2005, 07:57 AM »
I saw lots of red ones, and bought them now and then thinking they'd be semi-abundant but they dried up fast.  When the 3-packs clearanced they dried up too, though I always felt that BD 3-pack shoulda been one SBD (just re-release the Saga one if you ask me) and pack in 2 red BD's...  That would've helped a lot.

I got some, just not as many as I'd like having.  A 4-pack of BD's of a single color would go a long way I think, as a steady seller.  I don't think it'd fly as fast as the Clones, but I bet it would do well at the right price with the right quality behind it (IE: won't fall over under their own weight like the Saga white droids did).

Adam (BigDumbWookie) mentioned this elsewhere and I thought it'd be a good list (compiled by the Indy Knights I believe) of eateries in Indianapolis...

I'm gonna probably map out some things for my gf and I to go do in the evening based off this list.  Thanks to Adam for pointing this out too...  It's a nice help for us out-of-towners.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Hairy Chewbacca
« on: January 31, 2005, 07:12 PM »
I'm with Scott for the most part...  We've got pretty much every Chewie we could want perfect.  I would go a step further though, and think it'd be great if they re-issued VOTC with the Cloud City Escape Chewie's head as an "ANH" version.

But beyond that, then I totally wish they would try a real fur Chewie...  If it were really special I dare say I would go and pay $10 for it if done right.

I think it'd be funny at least...  "Fuzzhead" Chewbacca.

BTW Beth's comment about rolled in brown sugar has me cracking up.  Never thought of that, but yeah he does look like a tasty breakfast treat.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Trooper 4 Packs!
« on: January 31, 2005, 07:09 PM »
I can't say it's a practical answer either.

Buying figures for guns = a much higher cost on something that already costs a good bit.

I have extra rifles, so while I'm not completely set on arming my clones, I'm close.  I'm thinking of a secondary method to arm them with rifles too that won't be entirely cost-prohibitive but it may be a while before I get on that...

To me, I agree that a non-painted rifle should've been included.  I'd have liked it much more.  I don't see why they didn't pack BOTH in though, so you could choose.  It seems the more "Hey, we like our customers!" kind of thing to do.

The peghole thing though, while I understand people are annoyed by their lack of pegholes, I still see Hasbro's reasoning for not "fixing" that.  I was never that annoyed by the peghole thing either though so maybe I'm biased.
