Not bad here...  For the most part.  I've never seen a damaged VOTC actually, but OTC are no worse for wear than Saga was out by me.  The odd "dinged" bubble or card... 

I sw one horribly trashed Luke X-Wing which is now surprisingly gone, but it was terrible.  Saw it like a month ago at a Target that is now packed with OTC repacks that aren't moving anywhere quickly.

The card was tore up intentionally or by a child or something though.  It couldn't have been just shipping damage I'd think.

Myo's the 3rd I believe, and he's mentioned in the article.

Hell I'd have scanned images if that was cool.  Ballsy of GH.com, but more power to them.  I know Insider's touchy about that junk though, or have been in the past definitely.

Myo's NOT pictured in Insider though.

The thingies on his head/face are tenticles that suck blood or something from enemies/victims.  He's described in the article as something of a "vampire", or vampire-like I guess.  He supposedly hides those in cheek pouches though, so that's why I mentioned hoping they're removable, as in the film they're not visible.

Sorta wish it WAS smoke Mike.  :)  That woulda made a kick ass effect like those laser blasts and stuff.

Got my DVD's tonight and not a single 3-pack to be found.  DUnno what their deal is, but this WM had 0.

I hope I'm not gonna have to fight to get a ROTJ set.  I just want one, that's it, and only because I never got the saga Emperor which sucks as it is, but will make a neat figure to toss on my EW Vader and I can take the old Flashback Palpy off.

Just did a news post on this actually, and didn't see you guys actually talking about it here, so, well, huzzah!

This game, I can basically tell, is a watered down version of the original Star Wars Minis Battles from WEG.  A more terrain-based game where the setting becomes as important as the characters and such.

I want a subscription, but like the Fact Files I'm hesitant to.  Gonna read through what you've gotta say on it Adam because, basically, you know more on this than any of us already. :)

Nah, no hate.  I've done 150+ in cars, but bikes are different and what roads you're on are major influences too.

For instance, I'm speaking from Pittsburgh, not say, Omaha, which in Pittsburgh there's not a single flat, straight, highway to be found.  Nothing safe about driving like an ass around here...  Especially because roads just don't go dead around here either. 

It depends where you're at...  Nonetheless though, 200+ is too much.  Guy needs to lose his license...  Really, anyone over 100, if caught, should lose their license indefinitely as well, at least to me...  It's too fast, and most don't have the experience needed to do it, but they do it anyway.

Nabbed a VOTC Yoda and Lando, finally, last night...  Great figures, both, but...

Yoda's "wrong".  His belt should go over his outter coat, and had Hasbro gotten that right instead of screwing it up, they'd actually have made the coat much less puffy.  Go figure...

So I am seeing what I can do about fixing that snaffu.

Lando's waist on mine is wobbly which I'm reading is a common problem.  I'd say his thighs could've used a SLIGHT spacing apart as well.  Makes him a little more difficult to "pose" certain running ways and stuff.  Overall though Lando's a winner.

Hell I think Yoda's a winner too.  he's neat, even if puffy.  A vintage Yoda coat on him may fix all his problems though.

I've been reading how excited people are on OTC, and I have to admit I'm happier now than I was before, but these are NOT "flying" off shelves anymore.

Like all things, they're starting to glut now...  I mean, the Han's are a dme a dozen and have been...  Wicket's now becoming a warmer, as are the Dagobah Wave (all new figures to boot).

The Snowtrooper's a HUGE pegwarmer here now, and I again attribute that to the figure being a less than stellar army building example.

The X-Wing Luke's sitting some and Jedi Luke, because he was just out on Saga cards, is DEFINITELY sitting. 

The OTC isn't miraculously "better" than Saga was or anything that people around the net are seemingly claiming.  It just hasn't shipped heavily or steadily till now, and now that it is, it's sitting.  Cards don't sell figures, no matter how nice they are, and OTC's now proving that.

Fortunately TRU's are having a nice sale that's helping me justify some purchases I might not have made otherwise at WM's and TRU stores...   Picked up some repaints and such because of that.

Now if the Endor wave would show, I bet those would move...  Or if the Bespin Wave showed in any decent quantity it'd move for a time.

Right now though, OTC's ok, but it's no more special than any other line, and the repacks that AREN'T special at all are really sitting...  The Han was the first, but he's being supported by many now.

I agree...  However I did find some ESB remnants last night finally so part of me has some hope, but in the end we do get the shaft out here for product.

Its always the last to show here (well, generally), and not in the quantities others seem to get. :)

Trickle-down effect from the west to east...  And it really dissipates by the time it gets here.  *sigh*

I only need a ROTJ set myself.  Never got the Emperor and I can justify the set by the STormtrooper in it.   :-\

Agreed...  I think it's the $ thing that is enticing, but overall they're really not that pretty if you ask me.  Good bodies, but most people with large ammounts of $ can pay for that...  Or make themselves sick trying, ahem.

But yeah, anyway, I don't see them as anything but the kids they were when on TV even, but they aren't my cup of tea today either.  Then again I went to school from kindergarten to 12th grade with a girl who if you saw her you'd think she's a living Barbie Doll.  She's attractive, but to me it's like seeing a sister so I just don't see it the same as the majority.

People like that just need taken off the road.  I hope they see to it he's not allowed to drive legally.  Ever.

I've driven fast...  We all have, but people like that are putting others at risk, and they simply don't care.  205's a speed that's virtually uncontrollable, and if he'd have wrecked and killed himself he could've hurt someone else, or someone may have felt responsible for HIS injury or death. 

Not me, but someone might've.

Jeff, there are indeed shots of Gotal and Dannik...

Both are INCREDIBLE figures.  I mean absolutely brilliant sculpts.  It appears that the tentacle things are on Dannik's face however, so I'm hoping they're removable as they were not showing in the Cantina, and that it's a "feature" is all.

Dannik's got ball/socket knees, looks like anyway, a holster for a gun, and his bong's on his belt also and has a hose to the mouthpiece.  Looks like wrists as well are articulated.

Very cool, without a doubt.

The Gotal also is cool, but a bit more "plain" IMO.  His articulation looks superior however, as I see cut elbows/biceps and wrist joints.  Can't tell on the knees as he has kneepads of some sort, but there's a cut on his RIGHT knee that indicates hinged knees to me.  Not sure however.  He's holding a drink and a bespin Guard/Elan pistol painted up all nice and black with a silver barrel.  I see no holster however, though he could have a back holster on his belt.

There's also pics of the littel Playschook figures, the next animated CW wave, and old Pablo Jill/Yarua pictures.

Filming for Episode 3 perhaps?  The big Wookie scene I'm thinking.

20?  Good God...

20 sucked because I was still too young to drink but old enough that I really wanted too outside of my friend's dorm rooms, parties, or the odd dive bar that didn't card.

1 more year to true freedom Brad. 

Now go piss on something...  Scum just got some good "things" to take a leak on...  Not just threads, but people as well.
