Saga Collection '06 / Re: VOTC and OTC Returns in 2006!
« on: July 11, 2005, 10:48 PM »
Amen Jesse...  People's wires are getting crossed, people's hopes are getting raised (or sunk), and it's just a mess of rumors in all directions at the moment.

On this one, let me chalk my opinion up that all the figures mentioned needed a resculpt, even Barada (to represent the vintage character, not the 3-pack figure) in my book.  Not a one would make a good re-release.  And as I recall, Bib Fortuna wasn't the hottest selling OTC figure in my neck of the woods.

Jared just hooked me up with a big pile of books, for free, and a couple Star Tours figures on the cheap too!  Thanks Jared, I really owe you one bud!

I thought he was a SWAT dude from near the end of the film...  Cool.  Hope for more resistance fighters then.

The likeness to Arnold's surprisingly close for a company without likeness rights.  He likely didn't give a huge **** about it I'd think.

Bummer he's not "clean".  I'd liked to have made a "General" from the Empire using Arnold's head. :)  Or an Alliance Commando...  Comeon, you know you want a Rebel Commando that's like Arnold!

Oh well...  Nice pics, and I hope this line continues...  I'd take quite a few more figures.

Can you give us an idea of the pairings you saw Anton?

Revenge of the Sith / Re: "Evolutions" assortment...
« on: July 10, 2005, 09:01 PM »
The Evolutions sets do indeed inspire many other ideas...  This Anakin set's fantastic.  I agree on the angle-cut elbows being a bit of a cop-out, but they appear to yield neutral and 2-handed saber poses so that's good...  The Vader's fantastic.

I still hold out hope for an Obi-Wan (however I want an all-prequal Obi-Wan set as oldi-wan is kinda dull) Evolutions set, a Rebel Trooper Evolutions set (Fleet Trooper, Hoth Trooper, Endor Trooper), and an Imperial Trooper set too (Stormtrooper, Snowtrooper, Scouttroooper).  That'd be just great...

This concept could be something really fantastic in the line though...  Lots of possibilities with it now that all 6 films are done.

I have a hope for either a Clone Case or something...  But this wouldn't surprise me if we are seeing basically all there is...

I like the idea.  I like the green Commander (I'd like a Yellow, green, Red, Orange, and Blue variant of the CC myself, whether on-screen or not), and I like the idea of the red Coruscant Clones that seemed to be a personal-use legion...  All perfectly good ideas, but case assortments are a concern.

I hold hope for some case where these are plentiful and this case showing up in droves...  A Clone (all Clone) case would go a long way right now.

I like the #6 Clone enough...  I think #6 and #41 shipping in these legion colors would be neat though.  What I like for #6 is he can go prone while #41 really can't...  I see where you're coming from on it though as well Jared.  #41 is still my favored figure if I had to pick one over the other.

TV-9D9 / Re: Will the new TV shows make Star Wars weak?
« on: July 10, 2005, 03:11 AM »
I'm sort of hoping for a misleading little quote let out by McCallum there a short while ago and a series that either focuses on the continuing Jedi Purge/Empire's Rise/Alliance's Formation, or something that focuses on Rebe Pilots/War (IE: Rogue Squadron, the TV Series).

I'm completely willing to give the shows a chance though.  That's the main thing to keep in mind.  Live-action is less likely to be "kiddie focused", while cartoons tend to be a mixed bag.  Clone Wars was a real hit though and I have to say that my faith in what LFL CAN do is there. 

Of course, all it takes is one Ewoks or Droids flashback to put me in my place as well...  Still, after Episode III, I really think Lucas has re-established some of his past abilities in my eyes.  I think he can really do SW on TV some justice.  The Young Indy series was well done too, that puts some weight in Lucas's corner.

I'm anxious to see what comes about...  It's all there is to look forward to short of books and whatnot.

Nice pics...

They all look great and spot-on accurate.  The Endoskeleton is my favorite and shall make the best customs fodder.  Hell, he's pretty much the perfect phase I Darktrooper base.  Just give him the cutting arm/shield and he's set pretty much.

The female arms will be fantastic fodder.  I hope the headgear (glasses and/or hats) are remoable.  That'd make the cop and Sarah Conner's heads useable for customs.

The T-1000 (is that his #?) looks great.  Amazing likeness to the actor that played him.  Right down to the Taxi Cab with the doors open ears.

Wow, I was hoping this line had died too, or at least this wave, but I'll be compelled to have them now.

Sign me up for the list if they're out and about I guess.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Which Clone is Commander Bly?

Ah, yeah, that's right.  The one Clone is a Commander in yellow...  I think.

Hasbro could just make everyone happy are rerelease the Red commander with yellow paint.  Just a thought.  It can't be to difficult.  Eh, they will say get your own paint.

Could very easily happen, I agree.  I think it very well might someday too.  We all know Hasbro likes to get their mileage if they can...  With the OTC format coming back, it's a possibility.

For the record, I did some editing so that the Replied to title of the thread didn't read as, "Re: Evolutions Assortment" anymore.  That just was confusing.

Episode 1 / Re: Wave 2 accessory sets
« on: July 9, 2005, 12:20 AM »
Tattooine set had a couple black pistols in it I liked...  I think that was the set.  They're completely new sculpts and reminiscent of Han's DL-44.  They're different enough that they look nice with customs.  About their only worth though.

The tools the sets had were neat.  Odpening backpacks were fun even if the shoulder straps sucked.

I hate these paint variants that float out...  They are confusing and can really make picking up a nice single version of a figure harder than necessary.

For instance, finding Vader w/his table has been nye on impossible in my area.  A buddy of mine picked me up one that I have to get off of him at our next meeting, but I have no clue (nor choice) in which paint variation I get...  :(  And with the way Deluxe clogs pegs it'll be a real bitch for me to find the other versions to pick one up I potentially would like more.

This charred Anakin you're searching out info on Rob, sounds much the same, and with him being one of the hotter figures right now he seems like he'll be as big a pain to find the paint variation you want.   :-\

Revenge of the Sith / Re: I don't like action features!
« on: July 8, 2005, 09:25 PM »
The problem I felt that plagued action-feature figures was that it often still came at the cost of additional articulation.  That is what it seemed like to me anyway.

You slap ball/socket knees on Mace Windu, or the Anakins and Obi-Wans, and I'd have been a little more pleased with collection 1 this go-round.  Plus loose arm joints tended to be right on the tails of an action feature.

#6 Clone's the ideal action-feature-laden figure in my book.  Great articulation, great sculpt, and a feature you can't see but which works for what it was supposed to do.  I liked the Super Battledroid from AOTC for that reason.  Short of more arm articulation, I would've totally been happy with that figure.  I love the exploding feature, the battledamaged chest...  Those were neat ideas.

Drop that lame-ass extra "world devastator arm" he had and give his regular right arm a swivel joint at the forearm, and I'd have bought a lot more SBD's.
