Either or would be great Beth.  I just wanna know what I'm looking for at this point because I'm lost, what with tons of repacks and confusion over what's new and what isn't...

Saw the SA Frodo/Aragorn, like I said, and would've just skipped them thinking they were just the other Frodo/Aragorns that clog the pegs.

I've wanted to redo the Hasbro Carbon Freeze Chamber too.  I wanted to just make a "snap on" piece that makes it bigger and more accurate looking.  It, to me, is actually a really nice playset. 

The feature worked well, the concept was there...  It just wasn't a big enough playset to drive people in and buy it.  Overall I really liked that set though.  Kinda wish I'd gotten more of them when the FC store clearanced them.

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Anyone Customize any Madines?

I've been wanting to put a Riekean head on a Captain Antilles body myself.  I've envisioned Riekean as just Dodonna's replacement at some point (for whatever reason), especially since the Hoth uniforms definitely echo sentiments of the Yavin uniforms and such.

The Home One generals I always have separated into a separate part of the military, and thus the uniform difference.  I clumped them into the Special Services branch of things...  With that in mind, I intend to make a Madine into a General Cracken (Intelligence CO), and maybe the two goofballs standing around with Madine then.  :)  Some Fan-Fic guys too.

I have a George Patton head I wanna cast some day and make him as a General, though more the "Fleet" uniform instead of Madine's.

Hmmm, pretty interesting Jeff, and nice scoop there.

I really am not sure what to think about these.  It's a side line, and one I doubt I get into as I just don't have the room.  If I am gonna have "models" of the ships around I think I want plastic kits.

These are sorta cool in a micro-Machines kinda way, but a lotta people would rather see Action Fleet with new life breathed into it than a die-cast line.  At least that's what I've always gotten the impression of.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Anakin Mock Up

I'm not sure how good his lower body's articulation will be, but it looks like elbows, wrists, and ball/socket shoulders at least, which is something a bit more than any Anakin figure had in the E2 line it seems.

If his legs are NOT articulated except for the hip joints, I'll be a tad disappointed, but it's a good start nonetheless and superior (IMO) to every Anakin from E2 just because the arms are articulated to actually be posed fighting and such.

I lightened the picture and can't tell what is doing with the leg articulation though.

Just outta curiosity, is there SOMEWHERE I can go and find a complete list of LOTR figures released so far?

My brother's in school for his Dr., and he's busy busy of course, and I try keeping him updated on LOTR but I know now he's VERY behind.  I've never seen a Shelob for example (I'd like one for myself even) and he's behind all the nifty army builders once rumored, and the other Elf, etc., etc...

I just saw SA Arargorn and Frodo the other day he and I were out, and my brother got them, and I got him a Faramir in armor too, but those are the ONLY new figures he has gotten in what feels like a year.

NHL:  Pittsburgh Penguins
NFL:  Pittsburgh Steelers (Here we go Steelers, Here We Go!!!)

MLB:  Not even a sport (j/k, sorta, for you BB fans)
NBA:  Don't care for Basketball enough to ever pay attention to it.

NASCAR:  Mark Martin, Bill Elliot, etc.  Lots of drivers I like there.  Lots in other motorsports too actually, but Martin was my fav for years.

Highly trusted, and an asset to overall.  Trust me on that!

Thanks Beth!

I'd have hit it...  Dunno about now, but in 83, sure.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Episode III ~ The Video Game
« on: November 7, 2004, 03:29 AM »
With a somewhat strong showing for E2's premiere, I'd be more lenient on how the game may play out.  Bounty Hunter was such an awesome game, I had actually hoped for a BOunty Hunter II that was revolving around Boba's story now, just before ANH or something.

Either way, I think the game could be good...  I could see something like the LOTR action/adventure games...  They're simplistic in gameplay/style but fun and captured the feel of the films.  A Star Wars version is doable given the droves of droids that Jedi smash up in battle.  I could see it.

Madine as Imperial Officer...  Hellooooooo!?  :)

seriously though, I've not done any so far but stocked up on some Madines in the KM sale on Friday just for this purpose.

I believe there were 3 (Madine and 2 others) in the Home ONe briefing scene.  Can't be sure on that though, but I think it is three and they're pictured behind Madine on his OTC Card actually, if you look.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC/OTC Purchases
« on: November 7, 2004, 03:23 AM »

Today at the local get-together (at Bobafett14's house), I was able to score a VOTC R2 and 3PO from the infamous "Blue_Harvester", Dave. 

He helped me pretty much clear up my VOTC wants other than Chewie who is supposedly in route to my house as we speak...

Beyond that now, I'll only need "extras" of certain VOTC...  Maybe one more Fett, another Chewie, and any Stormtrooper I can get ahold of that I feel I've got $10 to blow away on another Stormtrooper.

OTC I need the Gam Guard only really...  I could live without the Scanner tech, though if I saw one I'd maybe nab him just for the "variation" in him.

The Gam Guard's eluded me though.   :-\

Beyond that then, I'll need OTC Transition figures like the Cantina wave, the Naboo figures, and the Coruscant figures.  Then I'll be 100% set till (I guess) E3 product...  Unless there's surprise stuff coming.

He's been posting at Rebelscum too, and what I find odd is that "production" ceased LONG ago...  On OTC and VOTC.

He keeps throwing the term"Production" around, and how it stopped, which to me says he doesn't know what he's talking about.  Point, blank, period.

It isn't like there's just factories over the pond churning these out continuously.  Toys are made in batches, and reorders of product are placed should they be deemed necessary.

In the case of OTC, things have been "limited" to an extent for the duration of the line, and the OTC line itself was made as a filler line for the DVD release...  Production was started at one point, and ceased so that product would ship for the orders that were requested from retail.  Simple.

Orders for OTC AFTER the fact would be moot, and the buyer would be told (Should be told he's an idiot for not knowing his product) "The production of that line's done, we have new cases available to you in this time of year, order them, they're transition figures into E3 stuff".  In maybe loose terms there...

VOTC, again, was something with a set run for production.  Retail gave its opinion on what was offered, Hasbro put in an order for a set ammount, and Hasbro (quite plainly) made it clear that when it's done, it's done.  No more VOTC will be made/shipped after that point because they're getting ready for E3.

This guy posting this news, and talking about it at Scum and things, seems more intent on starting a mass panic that "OTC and VOTC are Cancelled!  Buy them while you can!", rather than saying that this was the reality of the OTC line and most every other line Hasbro has made.

Yes OTC and VOTC are "done".  Did everyone think they'd last into ROTS product or something?  There's not much time between now and then...  There's lotsa stuff in the pipelines for stores, things are just now going out to the retailers for X-Mas, and it'll include the transition figures come December and into next year. 

Maybe I'm just missing the guy's point...  But "production" stopped on OTC and VOTC a long time ago...  It's not news, and not surprising, and it's not like there's going to be a surprise shortage of figures really.  Some seemingly are getting shafted on production, but how many basic OTC figures really shipped heavily at all?  Not many except NEW figures that Hasbro thought would sell the best. 

It's really just confusing "panic" I'm seeing right now...  It's a shame people start these rumors because now Rebelscum's all aflutter with the people thinking they're now not going to ever find VOTC figures because they're being short-produced somehow.  I wouldn't be surprised if there's the exact same # of ROTJ VOTC figures as there are ANH, they're just being distributed differently.  That's me though...  Either way, Production stopped LONG before this guy "figured it out", and then subsequently, "broke the news" as it were.  ::)
