Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Deluxe Figures
« on: June 1, 2005, 12:42 AM »
I hope I run into those kinds of numbers you found Pete.  The Crab Droid's on my top priority list, and I have to admit that (even though I was a Spider Droid Hater), the Spidey has grown on me over the years...

The retooled gun is nice, it looks in-scale, and I can stomach the inaccurate undercarriage and would like a couple of the new ones... 

The Crab Droids just rocked in the film if for no other reason than the Clone who went balistic on the one...  I'd like to stock up on Stass and her bike too for hopeful BARC Troopers in the future, or at least customs.

The Clone 3-pack's still uninspiring to me so at least (for once) the hottest figure in a case isn't the figure I want the most. :)

I noticed that too, on Stass riding a ROTJ/E2 styled bike but the two Clone's sport the BARC.

I'm kinda happy they retooled the BARC since the initial launch one is a bit bogus.  I do find it ironic that a point they could've rehashed something they didn't.  Stass's bike looks pretty sweet though, a lot better than the first version.

Sheesh Rob...  Nice collection amassed so far.  I wish I could find more but I've not had luck as of late.  25's a lot more than I had initially rationed to myself...  15 more atualy.

I'm a weak person I guess.

40 would make me very happy though, especially after seeing pics of 40 + lined up...  Oh man that's just a sweet action figure!

Saga Collection '06 / Re: VOTC and OTC Returns in 2006!
« on: June 1, 2005, 12:32 AM »
I'm really at odds with myself on this one...

I agree with Scott that, at best, these are $8 figures...  The bubble and cardbacks were special, they took extra work/effort...  Packaging can be pricey, and that was probably as price (per item) as it gets.

If they're doing every figure from the vintage line (I'm somehow doubtful of that, but one never knows) then I think the cost of packaging becomes somewhat negated...

I'm not AGAINST more VOTC...  I think the quality in the VOTC is unmatched, even in ROTS's line (short of their SA figures and perhaps the Royal Guard/Senate Guard).

So to that end, I'd like more VOTC, but at $10 a pop I'm hesitant to let out a big "Yay!" on this one.  I guess we'll have to see what manner the VOTC could pan out.

I'm glad to hear the OTC style in general will come back.  I think it's the best to-date, and the most representative of Star Wars as a franchise.  I'm not a packaging fan, that's why I generally don't touch on it in my reviews, but even I was saving some of those OTC cardbacks.  :)

The only sign of intelligent life in Cleveland is the sign that says how far it is to Pittsburgh.

I vote Cleveland...  The armpit of America.

Happy Birthday to Diddly and Muftak...  Have a good one guys.

And Dale, I knew it!

The thing about the Utapau warrior is that Medon's NOT taller than a human by much really...  Those guys others are citing, I almost wonder if they aren't just officials overseeing things with the Clones?  Maybe not POW's?

I thought they were prisoners at one point too, but the outfits seem more ornate (making them taller then perhaps), and they're not the same as Medon as far as height goes.  He's right around Kenobi's height in the film.

1) Commander Cody

2) Coruscant Firefighter

3) Random Human Jedi (Male)

4) SA Sidious/Palpatine (red robes/Mace fight)

5) SA Utapau Clone

6) SA Kashyyk Clone (BARC Trooper?)

7) Commander Gree

8 ) SA SnowClone

9) New Battledroid (leg articulation, better plastic)

10) More White Clones...  SA preferred.

If done to-scale, it's probably one of my top vehicle wants right now...  that Hasbro's capable of doing properly anyway.

Working center tread would be great...  It's a fairly small vehicle, it's "exciting" in a way...  Was in a great action sequence and would complement the Wookiee Copter well enough...  I'd take one for sure, just so long as it's not fudged as far as numbers go.  I'd take a few actually since they were so numerous.  3 sounds about right, if not more.

They had a better Fleet Trooper (made out of vegetables) than Hasbro has done.    ;)

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: So how many times have you seen it?
« on: May 30, 2005, 03:14 AM »
4 after this weekend...  Would like to see it more but I'd be flying solo on that I fear.  My friends are tapped out and the gf said once was enough.  Damn.

May have to do the matinee any way for it...  Wish we had a digital screen within driving distance, but unfortunately it seems the armpit of U.S. (Cleveland) is the only place even remotely close with one...  unless the theater opening in July has one at it.   :-\

Man, Matt got to take Lucas to Hooters at some point at C3...  Now that's dedication.

The old man's havin' a good time, but no pointing at Lucas's hooters Matt.  He's likely sensitive about that.

Happy (Late) B-Day's to Chuckles and Famine...  Sorry for the late wishes...

And happy B-Day to Dale...  I was going to photoshop you into a picture of "The Last Supper" but didn't have time.  Ah what the hell, you're probably in there anyway. :)

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Greivous' Cough?
« on: May 30, 2005, 02:59 AM »
I've heard the Shaak Ti scene as well...  I think it would've made Grievous a more pivotal enemy...  A threat at least.  The film kinda made him out to be a pansy, and without the toon he really wouldn't be cool to me otherwise.

He did whip up on Obi-Wan for a while though...  That's something I guess.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: "Evolutions" assortment...
« on: May 30, 2005, 02:52 AM »
Without a doubt Dressel...  That was a choice I'd thrown out myself to others.  The Rebel Soldier's evolution in the classic trilogy is great, and that makes a fantastic army builder set itself. 

On the Endor soldier in that set, I think I'd want a POTF2-styled Endor Soldier over the Saga one...  I like the guys in the full camo duds.  I think they're more representative of them in combat.  I'd just hope the upper body of the Saga figure could be put on poseable lower legs from an Evolution set trooper then.  It works with the POTF2 legs so far...  They just need to be poseable. :)
