Saw, for my first time, a TON of the Target Clone tonight.  It seems this figure's run its course in popularity...  At least here.  The figure was picked over, it wasn't like the cases were fresh on this, but there were plenty on the pegs (a good 15 +), and I'd say the novelty has worn off.  People just aren't gonna do as much army building as was once thought maybe.

I will have a moderate "team" (tough to even call them a squad) when all is said and done...  Can't afford to go ape**** with this one though.  Too bad because I really like the concept of the variations and all, even if it's a simple money-maker for Hasbro/retail.  I don't mind that, but at $13 a pop they're cost-prohibitive just like the EE army builder sets...  The only difference is the Target Clone at least hides better under the "exclusive" title while the EE sets were supposedly with the intent of people buying LOTS of them.  Can't hardly do that at $10/figure... 

You'll get just that little "team" going, if you're lucky.  :(

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Best Stormtrooper ????

I nabbed two more tonight at TRU...  It seems the more remote the TRU, the better your chances of finding this figure as well...  I've found fewer the closer to the city I go, but the further out, the more there are....  They're definitely still landing at that store though, as it was less than a month ago I got what I figured would be the last one at that TRU.  They had more in back I guess, in a case that appears to be mixed with Yoda's and Lando's...  I see no other ROTJ figures than the Stormie though.

Let the ROTS loot flow like the blood of your vanquished enemies...  Or at least let you get a couple Clone figures.

No word on it being backwards compatible...  Blech! :(

Anyway, new consoles are coming too fast...  The Nintendo one's at least gonna be backwards compat, but I'll still WANT the new X-Box one...  Then again it says it's making gameplay a multi-player focused thing, which isn't good IMO.  Ditching AI and story for MP gaming is taking away an adult focus since (and this is just my personal experience) a lot of the folks online gaming against each other tend to be arrogant kids.

There's adults trying to mix in there, but they're much fewer in numbers.

I hope it's not a negative to SP gaming I guess...  To me, that's what gaming is all about, having a satisfying experience with a good game/storyline you can immerse yourself in.  Things like KOTOR, or Jedi Knight...  Those were games you got lost in when you played.

I enter SW online contests for ***** and giggles, I never expect to win. Though one time I won a C3 Vader from some website. What was its name... :-*

Good having another Canucklehead on...  I'm sure Dale will be in to greet you soon!  :)

Vintage is something I've stepped out of for so long...  Mostly because of the new movies/SE's giving too much of a spike in the prices...  I really want to get back into it though beyond my passing "buy a figure here and there" attitude I have right now.  Need to start picking off the boxed vehicles and playsets I think.

Anyway, I'm rambling...  good to have you on here at Jedi Defender...  Any questions or anything, just hit any of us up, we're glad to help, and we hope you have a good time here...  It's a tight, but big group of friends we've got rolling here at the site.

I tend to skip them over myself...  I don't know why.  I guess I just havent' had much luck winning things so I tend to bypass them.

However, Jedi Defender is giving away a Lava Vader!  [/end shameless plug]

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Your DVD Collection
« on: May 12, 2005, 08:20 PM »
Uhm, I have 10...  Counting my LOTR EE set and SWSE DVD set...

*sigh*  :(

I will say, I want to buy up more Hammer Horror films and stuff like that (Vincent Price flicks, etc.).  When I found out they were on DVD I was all like, hell yeah!


Oh and I just noticed your sig Jamie, that about made me do a spit take.  Definitely worthy of quoting.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Jedi After Episode 3?

I thought it was good...  I couldn't read it on my screen, though I could vaguely see writing....  That works though I guess.  Gotta remember that.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: ROTS Screening
« on: May 12, 2005, 06:44 PM »
I'm just thinking how neat it'll be to see it 2 nights in a row, more or less...  I'm on SW sensory overload right now.  It's not even funny really, I'm just all amped up about this stuff.

Can't wait...  Getting antsy!

Hey Hasbro! / Re: Could you possibly make a good Mace Windu?
« on: May 12, 2005, 06:42 PM »
Yeah, it'd be really nice to see some "Collection 2" styled main Jedi here later in the year...  Though part of me just hopes for Evolutions Assortments of some of them too, or at least Obi-Wan, but I'd take a "Jedi Evolutions" set.

A human child padawan, a human jedi knight, and a Mace Windu Jedi Master...  I'd milk that Evolutions series for every penney it could produce.

Other Collectibles / Re: Target SW Gift Card. You get one?
« on: May 12, 2005, 06:40 PM »
I've still yet to get a Target card with the light-up saber.  Kinda bummed I missed those now because they are quite nice looking.  I'd love one given the experiences I had on 4/2...  A nice momento. :)

I got a little good news...  Heard I may get to see it a day or two early at a private screening.  That'd be kinda neat I think...  I'm still doing the VIP thing at our Loew's Theater for the midnight show though...  That's going to simply be insane! 

I've seen all the prequal films by myself at midnight, actually, and now I'm gonna have a whole area of my buddies with me.  Should be a fun time.
