Right now it'd just be the SA Clone for me.  #41 is the top figure in the line where I'm concerned, but that Royal Guard's a damn close 2nd I think.

There's some subtle differences to the costume, but it's pretty close to the Snowtrooper in pretty much every way.

I'm hoping they do a Super Articulated one...  If only because I think it was one of the better laid out battle sequences, though brief as it may have been.

The linked to guy's custom stickers are easy enough to print out yourself as well...  Hell, you can take the image he uses and go to Kinko's and have it printed out in any color you wanted really, and for relatively cheap.  Just a thought for those wanting to build a MASSIVE Clonetrooper army with that logo.  It's a good way to go.

Thanks Knash, that's a help I think...  I'll maybe make a little news post about that too since it may help some folks out in their search for these items.

I know I'm wanting multiple Clone sets and at least 2 of each other set (customizing folks!  CUSTOMIZING!), so I think these are gonna be a hot line of figures.  I just hope the concept in its current form continues with classic product.

Hey Matt, welcome aboard...  That's a nice X-Wing painting you have linked there btw, I like it.  It's a unique style.  You're one in a long line of other Matt's here, including our very own pink-sweater staffer JediMAC.

If you have any questions or anything, just ask...  And enjoy your time here in funhouse!

Hey, Happy B-Day Chris, didn't realize you had that coming up and a lovely server F-Up just as a wake-up call...  That sucks dude!  Hope you had a good weekend to make up for all the work put into the site the last few days.

Well, we'll just not explore that...

Let's just hope it's powered by something less....  uh, painful.

Verrrrry interesting Jared...  That is smart.  The question then will be whether or not Retail orders enough.  Even at $20 I somehow don't see these sets lasting long...  Not the Clone ones anyway.

I wonder how you power it?  Is it anything like Mr. Garrison's bike from SouthPark perhaps?   :-X

Welcome aboard...  I take it you're a SW Lego fan? 

Hey...  Happy Birthday to you guys...  Have a good one and get some Clones.

Man I had withdrawal.  Glad to be back, and I think everyone should applaud Chris because I hear he worked his ass off to get things back on track.

And of course if you find a bug I suppose report it somewhere, but beyond that we're running and it feels good to be in here...

I lurked Scum in the downtime, and popping in to read just made me realize why I don't post, to be perfectly blunt.

Sucked not having a home...  Got some work done on my Vintage display case though, so I guess that was productive in its own way.

Nice Review Brad...  You make me wanna pick this up actually.  I stood looking at one at TRU the other night just thinking about what you'd said.

I'm pondering picking it up and replacing the pack-in with my Preview Greivous or something.  My problem right now is space, but the vehicle is to-scale and that's my current criteria for picking things up.  Seems well made, with lots of features that are likeable while no real bungling to make it a more appealing toy to kids...  Or at least nothign that was detrimental.

I'm gonna have to get this I think...  This and a couple more AT-RT's.  ;)

Toy Reviews / Re: New JD Review: Wookiee Warrior (Sneak Preview)
« on: June 18, 2005, 12:11 AM »
Thanks guys...

The Wookiee Preview is probably one of my favorite figures in the modern line.  I'm still a little miffed at the "scale".  That to me is more an issue than anything.  I too accept the paintjob because I think it looks fine enough...  I just know it's a major gripe among collectors. 

The Preview Wook is so vastly superior to the basic line figure though...  It's amazing these two are from the same company really.  The Preview figure is almost perfect quality while the ROTS basic one looks like a give-away promo figure in a happy meal.  :(

I have 15 Previews, and I'd take another 10 - 15 like I've said...  I'd love some paint/head variants downt he road, though an all-new "in-between" scaled one, but done exactly the same as far as articulation and whatnot, that would win me over bigtime.  Sculpt him a little different, but not dramatically...  No features, just articulate him greatly...  And of coures paint variations.

I'd take a lot of that figure if done right!

It's funny how, without even a really broad fan-base beyond us hardcore people, that the Preview Wookiee seemingly has outsold ( substantially) the ROTS basic Wookiee.  That to me is pretty solid proof that quality wins out...  It's a noticeably MORE popular figure, and many found it at even a higher price point, and it still seems to have outsold the crappy basic Wookiee.  That's pretty telling if you ask me.
