Well, to me this just shows how loose the LFL people are with the continuity...  All the more reason to NOT accept everything written!  However, I will say that a lot of Fan-Fiction is very nice work...  Much of it even surpasses the stuff LFL is paying for, which is sad given what they probably are paying to get some of that stuff written!

It's funny but I've seen people make custom levels to games that are so nicely written and play so well that you just WISH they had some pull in developing the storylines of games.  Lucasarts has lost a step there (at least from time to time).

From what I hear it's the same game as the Vader one, just for those not sure... 

I've yet to get either since there appear to be so many.  It's one of those things I want but don't wanna pay full price for...  The game shots look ok though.

Thanks for the # Jay Double, as it may help quite a few people out (hopefully).  Currently no word on these showing in my area but perhaps soon.

I think AOTC Anakin and ROTS Anakin both look fantastic actually...  As per our front page, here's some images of what I think the final product's going to look like while the shot shown before is the figures from C3 which weren't seemingly the "final" product.


I think the headsculpts on both look great in those pictures...  Much truer to the actor than the hand-painted ones at C3 which can either be REALLY great or not too accurate. 

I agree that ROTS Ani's robe poofs a bit, however I've never trusted displayed shots unless a collector did it.  :)  I can get my VOTC Obi's cloak to lay better than any shot I ever saw, yet it still sorta bites.  I'm thinking that, by the look of the fabric on ROS Ani, I can get the robe to lay better than the effort made in that picture. 

The Vader, I think, had a removable helmet...  It may just be another Vader, but if it's got a removable helmet and the ball/socket joints I'm thinking it has, it's going to blow the VOTC out of the water which is currently my #1...  :)  I'm all for that!

Yup, I know some threads at some sites I liked are gone now and I don't have them copied...  Some good info from model-makers is long gone now, and that sucks. 

The carwax couldn't hurt it I wouldn't think, so I'd give it a shot Rob, but I've never heard of any kind of care being necessary for granite countertops either.  I'd think they're porous though and require something to keep them shiney...

Hey, this thread is back...

So I went to Red Robbin just a couple weeks ago...  IT SUCKED!   >:(

First, it's expensive...  For $31, 2 people ate a burger, a softdrink, a Coors Lite, a salad, and an order of cheesesticks.  I could've eaten a good meal somewhere else for that much.  I mean, there's a Texas Roadhouse across the road from this RR that I've eaten a better meal for just as much. 

Fudruckers = Vastly superior burger IMO.  I was not impressed.

 Plus that goddam bird was wandering the place and annoying when you tried to leave the restaurant.

Good question Matt.  I've been just NOW tinkering with Pay Pal.  I don't use PP ever, and rarely use Ebay really (never sold, only bought, and limited in anything I've bought even). 

I verified my account with a bank account, and from what I gathered that I read, they don't take ANYTHING from your account, it's just a protection measure for the "Pay Pal COmmunity".  Others will be able to verify this though.

From what I gathered, fi you wanted to actually pay with Pay-Pal, you had to transfer money FROM your Bank Account to your Pay-Pal Account, which took a couple days, and then you could pay with Pay-Pal by transferring the money you put into your PP account into another Pay-Pal Account...  If that makes sense.

Again, I'm a novice with this.  I dont' use Ebay for much of anything unless I can get it for super cheap but recently found a need to have a PP account so I signed up.  Still have yet to use it.   :-\

The fact a real-estate factor is involved can be scary...  A lot of TRU stores are planted right amidst some prime real-estate (usually within close proximity to a mall, at least in my area, which is land that can garner quite a penney).  Could spell store closings, but that's just a thought I throw out there...

I think TRU can work, I just think the way in which it's run now isn't going to work.  This store rarely has clearances, it rarely has sales (much less sales at a peak time...  Like why aren't SW figures $1 off right now in an effort to clear some room?  If they can run a sale like that once they can run it now and undercut WM a bit who I doubt would drop their prices to match...  But whatever).

TRU, like toys in general, is going to have to change...  If they want to stay around in any capacity anyway.  It's a shame though because it shows how our times have changed.  When I was young it was Children's Palace, then TRU which was slightly different, and now Toys are something along the lines of Toilet Paper...  Blah.

I'm not a WM fan so any detrimental news to TRU is sorta disheartening to me...  I've had the misfortune of studying WM inside out, and I'll never look at that company with anything but contempt...  TRU just isn't trying the right ways though, and have some work to do.  I would not be the slightest bit surprised at further store cuts for real-estate value that outweighs store profitability either, but I think/hope the Toys R Us chain will still live for a while at least...  How they alter to fit the market will determine how long they go on... 

Then again they could close up shop all together...  I think I'd be surprised at that though.  I don't thinkt hey can turn-over their properties to make the deal they worked out worth closing up shop all together.

Nothing wrong with that if you ask me...  It's always a lot of work. 

If you guys do have the time to check it out, CHEWIE puts a lotta work into the photonovels and they fit pretty well into the SW universe too.  I'm always pleased to see he keeps some really background stuff (planet names and such) within his continuity.  To me that shows a strong effort to make your stuff just as good as the EU LFL sanctions.

You all should check it out...

Wait, someone stole Dave's shift keys?  I think I have some in a kitbashing fodder box if he wants them. 

More Stormtroopers for the collection...  I got these last week actually on a tip from my local collecting bud, Dave.  He let me know 4 VOTC Stormies were just waiting on me to get the time to make the trek to the famed Monroeville Mall (home of where they shot Dawn of the Dead, and our tri-annual Toy Show).  I popped off at the Toys R Us and nabbed them, though I think I was just lucky though that nobody else beat me to them.

It's a busy area just outside the city...  I had to go to Lowe's anyway so it put me in the area, but it was a little later in the day.  I was concerned.

4 replacements to the squads.  Great...  Funny that TRU STILL is putting VOTC out.  Gotta run a sale to unload those Yoda's and Lando's now though.   :-\

Heh, I agree and that's about as polite a way to put that as I've ever seen.

It helps though for people to be interested in what you're saying overall...  Sadly I know a LOT of people around various forums that simply ignore posts by people with chronically bad grammar...  I can't blame them in a way because it does become troublesome to read.  Plus I've had a lot of experience in reading poorly written/typed material so maybe I'm just less critical, but even I have trouble getting the gist of someone's post from time to time...

I won't name any names, but there's one site out there where every other post is pretty damned confusing...  When a thread's full of those posts though, it spirals out of control.  Those are all good tips Chris gave to help people be more well received by their peers here and abroad (at other sites).

I could be wrong but I thought the Vader had a removable helmet as well Jared, so I agree it's going to one-up the VOTC which is a tough job.  May have the ankles articulated as well... 

I can't wait.  These sets are just perfect looking.  Thanks for pointing that out man!
