Revenge of the Sith / Re: Clones.....

Totally agree with Jesse that the 3-pack clones felt cheap, but since we also got the SA Clone to balance it out, I found them to be great filler.

I agree that with a SA version they're not so bad...  The price and everything balancing out.

The problem being that, as ya mentioned, Hasbro's shite at giving us the GOOD figure and experts at giving the crappy ones.  I'm hoping, as Vator is, that things are the other way... 

Optomistic's something I abandoned a while back I guess though.  Hasbro's proven they don't do what's most logical to us, and what would push sales.

SA Clones?  There's not a sole out there who could tell me those would ever "back up" at retail.  They'd always move steadily...  The demand there is only finite in conjunction with the finances of the buyer.  I think most SA army builders would be that way really...  There's rare exceptions, but the Clone wouldn't be one of them.

The 3-packs though are nice if they do have a SA counterpart that's easy to find, and in multiples.  Hell, pack ONE SA figure in with 2 pre-posed in the 3-pack.  Save a little tooling costs.  Still card one individually.  I'd still buy the 3-packs then.

I'd do that with all army builders if they just did that one, easily available SA army builder as well. 

I think that translates to core characters too.  You give me that one nice SA Obi-Wan and I'll take 3 pre-posed with expressions that represent a single scene as well.  And ya know I'd even be happy to do so.  :) 

VOTC Han, to me, improves Death Star Escape Han in my eyes 100%.  Suddenly DSE Han's pretty damn cool because VOTC Han's everything I want for a "playable" figure and DSE Han will look kick-ass on a shelf made to look like the Death Star.

SA shouldn't kill the pre-posed figures, it should just make them complements to the SA figure.  Poses you can't get out of that figure.

Noone thinks of me in a big series of slapping man-hams.  I'm hurt and elated at the same time.

Indeed, happy B-Day again.

I've found Sept. to be the month...  Like 3 people I know well have B-Days on or the day after mine.  Weird.  January-ish must be a busy time of year.

My mother's and brother's were this week (Mom's today).

So happy birthday all around and definitely to the traitorous trader.  :)

There were only two others.  Don't exagerate.   ::)

All those hands...  Things get confusing in the dark don't they?

As I mentioned elsewhere, the JD staff is happy to see this is resolved...  It's a shame it took so long though, and such hastle.

It's sorted out now though, so that's a plus at least.

I was more honoring your intellect that you'd be the only one with $ when everything was said and done, while the rest of us have an E! True Hollywood Story or are forced to host the Kid's Choice awards.

BTW this is the Backstreets Boys Princess...  They're dreamy.

It's ok to be "particular"...  Or gay for that matter, but straight and particular is ok too...  if you can take the ridicule.  :)

Come on guys!  Break out some harmony with me!

I think you're the sensitive bad boy...  who's gay.

Matt's the blonde guy who has a mediocre solo career.

Dave's the older guy who has sort of ferrety features.

Chris is the other blonde guy nobody knows.

Jeff's our tour manager who is skimming off the top.

Dale's my disappointed father.

And Brad drives the tour bus and flicks nasties in our food when we're not looking because he hates us.

Thomas is our high school counselor that said we'd ammount to nothing.

Thanks again guys... 

Wal-Mart trip proved fruitless.  My SW swag tally = 0.   :-\

I was given a major run-around about taking a PC game that won't work on my PC back too.  Real jerk-off at the counter and a real putz of a manager.

I've taken games back to WM before so I dunno what their issues are now...  It's freakin' Doom 3 which JUST came out.  Not like this is a 30 year old game or something, ya know?   >:(

Happy Freakin' Birthday WM you hillbilly morons!

I'd really like to hear the end of that one...  :)  Not familiar wth that Kevin. 

My mother's sayings were always kind of vulgar, like "Sticks out like a turd in a punchbowl", "Crows **** him/her on a fencepost and the sun hatched him/her", etc...

Weird, yeah.  Kinda old sayings I guess.

Hey guys, thanks for the well wishes.  They're much appreciated.  Got in from school, cruising the forums, and I'm gonna go have a beer in a second I think.

No SW swag to speak of yet...  I'll keep all up to date on that.

Lotta uh, kisses in those messages there.  No offense, but you guys aren't cute enough for me, I hope you know that.

Well, maybe Scott...   :-X   *pinky to corner of mouth*

Other Collectibles / Re: WOTC SW Miniatures (RPG/CMG/Clix)
« on: September 6, 2004, 09:10 PM »
Thankfully, if I get into these as a replacement for the WEG minis to play Tabletop miniatures Battles, the troops aren't overly rare... 

Kinda sucks really though.  I guess it's all just a tool for sales, but in the end I'm not overly fond of this game's rules, but the minis will make a nice way to supplement the ORIGINAL Star Wars Miniatures Battles game at least.  Some of the "rares" though would make nice minis for officers and whatnot.  Sorely needed.

I'll be anxious to see what else they make for the line as far as Classic figures goes...  If they try catering to the old Minis Battles crowd with excessive #'s of troops like it seems they may be aiming for, and they diversify the troops down the road, or if they'll just focus towards the new game's set of rules.   :-\  I hope not the latter for multiple reasons.
