Other Toy Lines / Re: Dusty Trail Toys new "Wild West" Line
« on: April 8, 2005, 05:38 AM »
I don't have the mail any longer, but it was very nice, but not particularly informative either Paul.

Hard to say where this line stands.  They were pushing it at Toy Fair I know, and didn't have a buyer at that point.  it could be just in production, or still shopping it around.  Hard to say right now but I too am a little dejected to not hear more.

I'm sorta amped about the Terminator and Planet of the Apes lines though, those are cool.  Wish more military stuff was rolling around, but so far the Marines have been the highlight of '05.  :(

Hey Ook,

I've passed that along so we'll see.  It's a bit of work I think, and we're all bogged down at the moment, but the suggestion's in the proper ears now, just so ya know we're not ignoring you.  :)

Site Feedback, Suggestions, and Help / Re: Photo Novel section.

I'm concurring with Matt on the notion of making a mini-section within the Customs area rather than whole separate forum.  I've never liked that about hte Diorama section at Scum, it just feels like it separates two ends of the hobby that should go together.

"Hey, you got customs in my photonovel!"  "Hey, you got photonovel in my customs!"...  :)  They just go together.

But a separate section with customizing is a dandy idea.

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Busted VOTC Leia - bummer

I'm not sure that a screw in the leg would be a bad idea, there looks to be SOME material left, but not having one in the same state as yours it's tough to judge from a picture.

Worse comes to worse you could try that at least...   :-\

The good thing is she went for so cheap most places that getting a replacement isnt' a huge deal I guess.  Just a pain at this point I'm sure.

The best part of the story I've heard so far is that a kid is playing iwth a VOTC Leia.  I recall many people telling me VOTC wasn't for kids at all, and were meant to just sit in the packaging...  I can see some point that kids maybe weren't the target, but they're damn fun figures nonetheless. :)

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: How big is your army?

Well I managed (through my gf being at WM tonight) to get 2 more Clones and a Wookie Warrior.  The army gains a little ground I guess.  Not much though.

I'm more concerned with C3 right now, than army building.  I do want those higher # figures though.  Damn!

Revenge of the Sith / RotS Figure Sales!

I'm as amazed at the title I wrote as you possibly are at reading it.

I went to K-Mart tonight to score on the "2 for $11" deal they have.  Not much of a deal considering everyone else has figs for $4.99 this week or something, but I went anyway and I was shocked.

The only 2 figs I wanted were the 2 royal guards they had (red) on the pegs.  They had maybe 8 to 10 basic figures beyond that laying around, but probably 8 to 10 actual pegs for basic figures.  This place was packed on 4/2 also, from what I understand, and now nothing.

I'm amazed that, even at the mark-up, K-mart is still selling figures relentlessly.  That has to bode well for the popularity of the line overall, and I wonder if this is opening Hasbro's eyes that quality sculpts, articulation, and accessories are what sell this line in volume.  Perhaps this is a great omen for things to come!  I'm hoping so anyway.

I was cleaning up K-Mart tonight on a brief jaunt there looking for army builders.

Place was a mess, but I have to say they had maybe 8 - 10 figures TOTAL on pegs.  When a toy line's figures are selling, even at a $2+ mark-up (though they are on sale this week), you have to think the line's doing well.

We're still at $2.19 or so...  I'm praying it goes down before the 20th...  That something is done.

I pray they develope a simple add-on hybrid kit for cars. :)  I can dream, can't I?  I'd buy it in a heartbeat at this point though.

Don't listen to the Mozilla whore.  He'll lead you down paths of great dread and despair. :)

BTW I don't have to hit ctrl, just printscreen.  I dunno why.  I have a program to pull multiple shots from video games too for reference galleries that I never work on for FFURG.   :P

EDIT:  BTW I'm glad I wasn't the only one who laughed when I saw Dustin's quote about "if you have a problem with being banned here, PM me"....  I truly let a chuckle, partly in disbelief at what I had read, out.  I'm sure it was an honest mistake, but it made me laugh nonetheless.

I gotta get on the ball.  Class is done this week so I'm going out tonight maybe.  Find some figs!

Celebration III: Indianapolis / Re: C3 - Where are you staying?
« on: April 6, 2005, 07:36 PM »
I have your Cell # in my phone Bob, so if you're gonna have it on I'll call you.  Mike was supposed to give me a hand putting the FFURG Table up real quick (just the tables), but if you're around you can coordinate the effort.  Act as foreman or whatever. :)

I'm doing that in the evening.  I'm leaving Pittsburgh around 8 I hope...  Probably just heading from my house down 66 to 70 and on our way then.

Lemme know if your plans are at all similar.

I've got a whole collection of Lego SW you can have for what I paid for it Bob, if you wanted. :P

Catch on or not, I don't have room for all these side-things I've bought over the years like MM's, Legos, etc.  Just too much stuff for too little room.

The post was kind of you Princess, what with the mention and all.  I'm not expecting anything, but that was a nice thought on your part. 

Even if I'm let back in, I'm disappointed and a bit disenchanted as well.  I'll take my place again, of course, as the benefits of having access are there in my eyes, but in the span of a few days I really have grown not to care if I'm there or not as well.  Maybe I'm just too busy with my real life leading into C3.  I got a lot to get done and a short time to accomplish it, so my mind is mostly on stuff that actually has some relevance to my life...  IE: Not Rebelscum and their current "drama/outrageous reaction of the month" club. :)

Actually, no, it's not ok here...

We (the staff) made a conscious decision some time ago after much behind-the-scenes discussion to NOT allow War/Politics/Religious debate, long before Rebelscum did actually, and we've been sticking by that. 

I took the heat for it at the time, and I'll take the heat for the decision today to lock this as well, as it was my idea to just disallow it in the first place.  Any questions you have can be directed towards me in PM if you'd like, but I felt too much anymosity spilled OUT of that kind of discussion for our boards...  It's something they say not to bring up on a first date, or a business luncheon/dinner and I tend to agree with the notion that, if you want to keep your friends who maybe don't always agree with your POV on major things going on in the world, arguing about it on a Star Wars forum tends to be a bad thing for the forum in general.

Sorry guys, locked up.

Rob, thanks man...

Hmmm, I hate Hasbro's constant neglect of GOOD plastic.  They're doing it again, and at this point it's just becoming an insult that you get a figure with accessories maimed beyond believe, or one that collapses under its own weight.

The E1 droids didn't do this, so there's no excuse for anything later to.  That's bothersome to say the least.

A new BD is in order, or the current one needs cast in a distinctly more rigid plastic.  Myself, I'd use the CURRENT one's upper body, and put the E1 droid's legs on it (with the same plastic used as the E1 droids).  Voila, battledroid perfection in my eyes.  Release all kinds of variants and I'd be buyin'.

I appreciate the knowledge that the droid is junk.  He's a clearance item now on my list.
