Monkeys and Chimps are incredibly sensitive.  The attack was inevitable.

Guy pissed them off...  You smoke with 'em, you don't agitate 'em.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: $35 for Holo Yoda?!?!

Yeah I think it's just a way to "guarantee" themselves more of their crap goes than the next guy.

I'm not planning to buy a TON right away but I think I can eek out $35 at TRU...  Dunno how Target's handling their deal though with the Vader.   :-\

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Basic Figure Leak: Already?

And so far apparantly only the Pittsburgh store employees can keep a lid on anything.  :)  We take pride in retail here folks!

I've not heard hide nor hair of an E3 toy leak yet.  Pretty surprising really considering the E2 line-up was leaked out pretty good around here as was E1.

$35 or $20, it doesn't really matter I guess unless the spending limit I had set was $20 anyway...  Seems like there's plenty enough to work up a $35 tab between a couple of stores to get the exclusive...

Hell it'd be borderline worth paying that just to avoid a Wal-Mart after the experiences I've had there the last couple days, haha.

Now, if figures were $1 or $2 more at another store, then I'd definitely go to WM, just out of principle of not paying more than what the SRP is...  That's a rip-off.

I'm glad I DIDN'T buy Battlefront now...  Not that it appealed to me a ton anyway, but this just seals the deal to me.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: ROTS Trailer
« on: March 4, 2005, 12:25 PM »
I almost see the logic there I think...  The OC's age group ties to ROTS and all.  I see it making some sense to draw in certain crowds.

Or maybe it's just so all the boyfriends being forced to watch The OC have some glimmer of hope to their lives?  I dunno.

Middle Earth / Re: LOTR Trilogy Figures
« on: March 4, 2005, 08:18 AM »
That's ok Ook, but thanks.  Just gonna hope to get the multi-pack if worse comes to worse...  It's one of the few figures I definitely want for myself and know my brother wants of course since he collects everything.

I'm pondering how I'll get him a NECA Balrog...   :-\

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?

The cost to tool 3 molds (or more) for 3 figures like they did with the AOTC 3-packs though would actually run the company more.

Can't they just pop new heads onto the previously molded bodies?

So long as the armor's identical between the two...  Should work fine then I'd think.  That'd be a good possibility for future sets I'd think actually.  Perhaps the C1 Clonetrooper's helmet would fit the 3-pack Clone's body already even....

Lucked into finding some more for my brother tonight...  Coronation Elrond, Gimli, and Arwen.  I got the Isengard Orc for myself, and there's an Elendil figure that if my brother doesn't take I'm gladly gonna take...  Not sure if he needs him.

Just hope I can find a Shelob sometime soon...  Or I'll just wait for the multi-pack she's in I guess.

Other Toy Lines / Re: Terminator Toy Line... 4" Scale.
« on: March 3, 2005, 10:26 PM »
Welp, I love the pictures John, thanks...  That's a nicely done figure it seems, lots of points of articulation if my eyes aren't deceiving me, and the word on 2 T-1000's and a "soldier" (is that the guy that goes back to save Sara Connor?), as well as the tank (hell yeah!) rock...  I just hope this isn't the LAST the line has to offer. 

On a semi-related note, I have a case of the 4" AvP figures due me now...  Just gotta get the payment to the company, and hopefully these'll arrive here soon.  I'm hoping for something great when I get them...  I don't tend to deal with people overseas, so I'm hoping this just goes ok.  Good feedback, so I should be ok, but one never knows I guess.

Nice Juggernaut shots...  There's a project for the future, no doubt.  :)

No reason they shouldn't though...  The release could depend on sales more than anything, which I can't imagine the Clones being too hard to find this year but I also don't think they'll be the pegwarmers of the season either.

The 4-pack through EE is supposedly limited (curious to see how true that is though), and it's through EE...  I think the gouge there's more from a lack of effort to get a set lower price.

The 3-packs we got were all-new sculpts with surprising number of parts, for $10...  3 re-issued SA figures from the basic line SHOULD happen, it's a matter of will it...  I think if Clones do so incredibly popular at retail this year as we think they will, maybe a retailer with real clout will get army builder sets in for good prices.  Hasbro's said army building's going to get some focus though, so we'll see.  This may be a carry-over beyond just the movie-year's blitz.

To me, pack 3 of the GOOD basic figures into a pack later and ship 'em out as necessary...  Whip in some color variants if it entices people more, but I doubt that'd even be necessary.  This would be something ideal for maybe next year sometime though alongside similar packs for other eras/films.

SA E2 Clone 3-pack
SA VOTC Stormtrooper 3-pack...

Just something that, after a figure gets a basic release, this makes the value of the molds really take off, and the overall cost-per-unit decrease with every case sold to stores.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS - Battle Arena Assortment.
« on: March 1, 2005, 01:00 PM »
I got the tablehockey vibe too...

Though, to me, without a real point/goal for them to acheive then I really don't see it as being TOO much fun.  Clanking your figures together saber to saber is fun when you're 10...  Or when you're 27 and you're 100% sure nobody's looking.

But yeah, not too interesting to me...  Basic figures intrigue me more.  If it really adds much to a set or something, cool then...  Otherwise just "eh".  Passable for clearance to me.
