Revenge of the Sith / Re: Concept Clone

An interesting custom without a doubt.  I think I'd dig one with cloth robes, and it may make a nice "future" custom project...  I think it looks almost like a pseudo sniper.  Reminds me of troops in the Battle of the Bulge.  Improvised "camo" and warmth...

Very neat looking, and accurate to the pics I've seen.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Whose Side Are You On Anyway?

The Quarrens in CW were not my favorite episode.  Neat elelments to that, but poor execution I thought overall...

My opinion is that perhaps the Quarren are playing both sides and the CW toon is simply wrong...  Not hard for me to accept that given my dislike for that episode for the most part, so I simply ignore it.

Come time of the Imperial era, some EU says both Quarren and Mon Cal support the Alliance...  Depending what you read.  I like that.

Episode 1 / Re: What's your favorite vehicle?

I agree that the AAT is pretty nice.  Not sure on its scale, but it seems close and they did good with the hatch.  I was only miffed at the lack of a "real" interior.  The lame-ass feature of the exploding cockpit thing, with the painted figure and all that...  Not swift.

To me, the AAT was a pretty solid attempt though...

And E1 didn't have a lot of good stuff to pick from.  I think it has the worst ships/vehicles of all the films.  I will say that the Gian Speeder is one I'd have liked to have seen done and done properly.  The Flash Speeder was a letdown since it was so damn tiny.  Nice idea, piss-poor execution.

The N1 Fighter was a bit more the same, as was the Queen's Ship...

Episode II was a far greater effort out of LFL's designers to make "Star Warsy" vehicles.  The ships in E1 just fell flat.

See, now that's good thinking Hunter! :)

I was thinking how sweet it'd be to have him re-issued in grey (be nice if they tooled some new legs and headsculpts for him too though) so we could build a nice Tech army too.  I've come to the conclusion these are Gunnery Officers or Pilots off-duty myself, and would love some grey Army/Tech guys to pile into dioramas since they were like fly-dirt in the film.

It's one of those figures though that, even if he wasn't changed at all, I'd buy another 10 or 20 of him as he is.

She was a bit meaty for my tastes...

Oh wait, about the comment under the mask you mean?

Hey Jared, sending a PM your way about the ST.

The Skirt is most definitely glued to him at the waist and also on his ass cheeks.  "Bummer", literally.

I picked my Tarkin up and never even noticed till I was examining him closely (after I opened him) for this gig I have.   ::) 

So anyway, Jason's thing about the tint (a pinkish color, very noticeable compared to the pants or shirt of the figure) even breezed past my radar when I picked the figure up but not when I was studying it close.  It's really rather distracting looking.

I have a 2nd Tarkin figure on Lay-away that I gotta go pick up in a while and I'm gonna check him over good.  He's a fodder figure so I'll open him and do some side-by-side comparisons. 

There is a belt "buckle" mechanism (peg/hole) just like on the Red Clone Commander, and the skirt should THEORETICALLY come off...  However...

Hasbro saw fit, at least on my figure, to glue the belt to his waist and his ass cheeks.  Why, I do not know...  Kind of defeats the purpose of making the belt have the removable feature/buckle and all that, but hey, it's Hasbro.  They're goofy.

BTW Jared, your Bacara rocks and I'm not hell bent on doing that too.  The way the helmet rests on the neck doesn't bug me in the slightest.  May do that headswap real quick just to see if I'm just not seeing the crappiness.  :)  Looks cool by me though.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: TRU Exclusive Clones!
« on: June 28, 2005, 09:47 PM »
The best Idea I've heard on this so far is the thought of these being 3 SA Clones in an Evolutions style box (hopefully with the right gear and stuff)...  I hadn't even considered the Evolutions boxes as really being made for 3 figures and stuff...

That's ideal thinking, unless you consider ideal to be the 3 SA guys in a small package (with just rifles)...  I'd love that Evolutions sort of idea, but not under the Evolutions title.  That'd be rather neat.

I haven't, as I only got one Bacara when I was out (only saw one too), so I am not sure what may be possible...  I will say that action features tend to throw a wrench into swapping parts.  It may not be possible, or at least it may not be simple.   :-\

Hah, I'd like to Jared...

Won't do it, but I'd like to.

I think this is great...  Nice to see something that has had a bit of buzz being offered for an ok price.  I'll definitely nab one even though it technically does stray outside what I'd normally buy.  I love the concept and can't wait to nab one.  Saw someone do an RC Custom droid once a while back with small RC modules...  Pretty neat.

Unless you like it...  I mean, a lot that comes out is still good EU material...  I just think this Hyperspace thing is a prime example of WHY the EU is not considered "definitive" or "canon", and just something that is there for sort of a fan pick-and-choose...  It's like a Star Wars buffet where you can try everything, nothing, or just somethings.

But I was watching a thread elsewhere about Clone Wars (the toons) being "Canon".  Beyond the asinine reasons given (some which weren't entirely informed/correct, such as "Lucas was heavily involved with Clone Wars" when in reality he only gave some "help" to them by letting them introduce a character he created), the point stands that Lucasfilm hasn't changed anything publicly about the films being canon and nothing else...  I don't know what it is about TV's, but people think that if they see it, they can argue "Yeah, well that happened because it's MORE important than (insert EU medium here)".  I think that degenerated into the CW toon being more "canon" than the Clone Wars Comic or some **** like that. 

Then it turns to a pissing match where one guy says the cartoon's canon, then another says "but the comic contradicts such and such from the cartoon", and then the EU debate rages because some say the cartoon's now canon, others are confused...  It's funny to observe.

Yeah, welcome aboard to JD...  Amazing you posted your first post about this.  You should go introduce yourself in the introductions forum....

A very nice Destroyer that's being talked about...  Not $2500 nice to me...  But a lot of work went into it for sure.  I'd dig building one myself but nowhere to display anything that big for certain.
