Original Trilogy Collection / Re: 2005 Cantina Wave
« on: October 7, 2004, 05:50 PM »
Nice news Scott...  They are indeed a nice set of figures.  I mean, 3 Cantina aliens at one time?  That's a dream come true that hasn't been seen since the POTF2 cinema scenes, and these figures are substnatially superior to the old 3-pack figures.

Myo's currently ranking as my favorite I think.  That's just really good detailing going on.  Can't wait to have these 3 in the bar...  I'm gonna have to take some of my filler figures out.  I have XD pilots in there, the Toht, the Gestapo guy from Raiders is in there, a space man figure, and damn near a dozen Jawas drinking away.  :)  These 3 are welcomed by me for sure.  Good customizing sources too, especially if you're into fan-fic.

Can't wait to make an Abyssian Rebel Pilot or soldier.

Man, we just got STern back...   :-\  I wanna get the system he's on, because he's all I listen to on the ride to school, plus his show would be uninterrupted to an extent I'd think...  At least less anyway.  And unrated, which is incredible because his PPV's were always good.

I can't justify paying for it just for Stern, but I'd like to have it nonetheless, just for Stern.

Man I miss them soft one-piece pajamas...  I like things with easy removability as much now as an adult as I did as a baby.  I need me some feety pajamas, stat.

That good?  :)  Still, I like my techs to take their anabolic Steroid tests regularly.  This guy somehow avoided the pee test.

Good God Brad...

If you WANT any of those, get ahold of me...  I think I at least have 2 or 3 you want.

I'd take a Concept Trooper re-release.  It's a decent army builder, decent fodder...  I'd like another 2 or so of this figure.  I got one through a local friend so I was fortunate on that.

If her neck's the new (pop right on/off) ball/socket I'm wagerin then that she's a new sculpt...  If it's the old pin with molded-on pliable head, then I'd think she could be older.  Given her sub-par look it's disappointing. 

The sounds of a street-walker variant and sorta ok variant though give some hope...  The figure's not "much" though, so I'm kinda curious if this won't turn into a pegwarmer.  Given the shipping timing on these...  Eh, could see heavy distribution leading into X-Mas, and peg-warming.  :(

Scoobacca's customs are awesome.  He was one of the first people I can think of who got a VOTC Fett and the guy seemed to customize it almost immediately.  THat's dedication to the hobby.  :)

I thought the heads looked the same, but the OTC one just looked INCREDIBLY better.  I know the hat looks nowhere near as crisp as the Imperial Officer variant figures though.  I thought it was the same head then just painted better.  God knows that would've taken no effort considering the original scanner tech had 2 black dots for eyes basically.  :)

Other Collectibles / Re: Character Focus Collections
« on: October 6, 2004, 02:53 PM »
If it's a dup, it's a dup...  No worries.  :)  I doubt GNT comes in and can drudge one up from 2 years ago and lock yours, heh.

I have 2 focuses...  Well, 3 technically I guess.

Army building I consider somewhat of a "character focus", but I'll leave that at that...  I would likely buy any Fleet Trooper and tweak it no matter how sucky it is so that it is decent though.

My character focuses though are Tarkin and Bossk.

Tarkin is probably my favorite character in the films though, so I've kept his 12" figure, mini-bust, etc...  Bossk, well...  I like Trandoshans cuz they gets ALLLLLL da ladies.  Jockin' the Wookies and Slappin' the ho's, that's livin' Trandoshan style.

So I have some Bossk stuff...  As much as I can find anyway.  No Bossk bust though.  Should probably nab that.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: OTC...Selling that Well?
« on: October 6, 2004, 02:29 PM »
I would say not...  MOst I've seen is 2, or perhaps 3 cases at a time...  That's my personal experience anyway.  Target's had the "most" at a single sitting, and this was just last week that I saw 2 cases (Bespin Wave) go out at a single point.

VOTC at Wal-Mart's had "more" go on the pegs at once than basic OTC at any store...

Wait, nix that...  I did see a LOT of OTC go up at once at WM when they put those big displays out...  The ones with the carry cases.  Those I've seen more of, but that wave (The bounty hunters, Bespin Luke, etc.) I've not seen at another store than WM either.

Right now, my TRU's have lots of Saga and a handful of OTC pegwarmers like R2-D2, and Spirit Obi-Wan...  Most Targets near me then have the Dagobah Wave, some Bespin remnants, and repacks of R2-D2, X-Wing Luke, Jedi Luke, etc...

I'd love to walk in and find the Tusken, Gam. Guard and Endor wave...    ::)  Love to find lots and lots of ROTJ VOTC figures too.   :-\  However, the things I want aren't the things I'm finding at all.

Yeah, I don't know what they were going for on that either...  It's the same articulation as the Stormie, really, sans the ball/socket torso...

I dunno if they tried fudging #'s or what.  ball/socket joints are one joint, not two or three...  I've seen people thinking otherwise, but not quite. 

Still, Hasbro's style means less joints but the same poseability lines like 21st's X-Treme Detail line or BBI's Elite Force 1:18 lines have.  To me Hasbro's set an even higher bar for THOSE companies to attain now.  The ball/socket joints hide much better than cut joints.

Happy belated birthday's all around...  And happy current B-Day's too! 

Gather up the loot, go into a room alone, and enjoy huffing plastic for a couple hours.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Question for loose collectors
« on: October 4, 2004, 06:04 PM »
beyond army building I'm a completist (loose), so variances kind of motivate me...  The OTC's testing my patience with that however.  I've skipped plenty from the OTC just because I didn't like the figure in the first place.  Bespin Luke comes to mind, which I find to be too pre-posed, and I hate the action feature.

That said, the army builders snag me quick...  This includes Jawas, Tusken, Gammorean Guard, TIE Pilots, Stormies...  I'll skip the biker scout however because, again, I dislike the figure overall and he's not variant enough to warrant it.

If I see Luke cheap at some point, I'll nab him...  Same with figures like X-Wing Luke, though my POTJ one's "toofless" already by my own handy work.

Same goes for other heavily changed figures I personally don't like...  Bib I'm still wanting to see in person before I buy it or not...  The sculpt's not my favorite, but perhaps the paintjob's really great?  I've seen pictures, and they don't impress me.

But, ultimately, that's my take on buying OTC...  Army builders have been my focus.  Unfortunately I've yet to see the Gam. Guard and Tusken...  Both figures that their new paintjobs wow'd me!

Not much found at the one Target I hit yesterday...  I didn't expect much though because it comes and goes.  Bespin Wave just showed at Target though so I got a customizing Lobot and a messed up "Dutch" figure for cheaper.

The VOTC were picked clean when I got there...  No CCP's though they'd been there.  I'd have bought 2 had I had the chance...  I'd have bought any VOTC from ESB or ROTJ I saw I think had I seen anything...

I do have my receipt from my last purchases at Target stores though so I'm gonna get some price matching refunds tomorrow after classes.  May take an ad and run on a quick toy run too on my way home.
