I'll just say now that I've done a bit of trading with Paul in the past, and he's a great guy.  Someone I'm proud to call one of my friends here on the net. 

If you wanna trade with him you're sure to be happy with the deal. 

I've done quite a few trades and he usually goes above and beyond what we even agree to.  Guy is just an asset to the community!

Power of the Force 2 / Re: The Beginning of POTF2

I was similar to your story Bob.

I was buying MicroMachines actually...  That was my thing.  I eventually started going online about the same time too and started looking at modern figures.

Before all that I bought some of the RPG books for just "good reading", some of the miniatures, and I collected/customized Vintage. 

I was a G.I. Joe brat though, not a Star Wars fan till proobably the later 80's.  I liked Star Wars as a kid, but didn't collect it because G.I. Joe was just a better toyline to me from a child's standpoint (more fun, more vehicles, etc.)...

Joe was my life though...  Had EVERY figure.  In fact the only things I didn't have were redeco exclusives, Sears Exclusives, etc...  Oh, and the FLAGG which wouldn't fit in my room.  :)  Had that all though, and hardly any Star Wars.  They were good for accessories for my Joes and for use as the helpless scientist or something.

Vinty caught my eye when I was watching Empire and Jedi on NBC one night, and I wanted to collect the old toys...  Before long talk of new films, re-released films, and then in 1995 a whole new action figure line.  And the rest is a sad pouring of $ into Hasbro.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Boba Fett..... Voiced by Jango Fett?

I hadn't heard he didn't like SW, but ya know I'm not surprised either. 

I can stmach Boba's voice changing though I like the idea of his original sinister voice more...  I coulda bought that even if there was some excuse that he had the raspiness to it or whatever (throat injury...  heavy smoker?  I dunno).

The stormies, I'm praying, aren't changed is all.

Hey IV, glad you could make it...  I rarely run into you at Scum anymore so I'm glad you decided to come around here.  You'll fit in I'm sure.

Have a good one man.

GNT go away?

I believe that's what some would call a "Turd that won't flush".  :)

Ultimately, some names listed are likely in the running for mod-nod, honestly.  Durge too I'd think.  They keep letting him back so they obviously like him to some extent...  I dunno if Philip likes him personally or what...  He gets back in though, and we all know Scum's not keen on letting banned folks back in routinely.

There's a reason there...

Episode 1 / Re: Begun, my Bonus Pit Droid collection has...
« on: August 27, 2004, 02:44 AM »
That's a good question, as there WAS a tool box in the Wave 2 sets, I can confirm that much, but I can't say I've ever seen the Bonus Droid boxes to compare.  :(

If yu can supply an image Schneider, I can compare for you at least...

And thanks for dropping in.  Feel free to say hi in the intro portion of the forums... 

I'll try digging those accessories out.  I have them set aside on my E1 shelf (opened).  The wave 2 accessory sets were so astonishingly better than Wave 1.  It's another one of those things where Hasbro kinda tanked the first series then put out decent stuff in the second but they judged the entire line on those 1st sets.  That's disappointing because they really did improve things VASTLY.

Weird, but purging the forums there has happened before... 

I could think of a list of people Scum wuld give the mod-nod to given their track record.  Gen. Windu and "Peep Admiral/Yoda Boi" come to mind as people who've had a precedent set for their becoming a mod.

Josh was probably their most active mod there...  I'd imagine they'll attempt a replacement soon.

I hope so too Hemish, and we hope for Wai's credibility that he comes through on this.  Wai if you're around reading, we hope you're taking care of all business outstanding you've not completed yet.

Keep us updated Hemish, please.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Star Wars Galaxies - Not Star Warsy enough
« on: August 26, 2004, 11:13 PM »
I agree with that thought Tydirium...

I found Tatooine to flat out suck.  Very bland looking, tons of wild animals biting you at every turn.  No story...

Probably the lack of a story is what disappointed me.  I NEED story.  Story is what a game's based on.  I need the galaxy to be more interesting than me just wandering around doing basically nothing.

I cannot justify paying for that.  I do that in my real life for free.  :)

Oh, feel free to hop over and intro yourself in the section down towards Watto's Junkyard.  I think it's a couple sections below it (tell I don't go often).

And again welcome aboard.  You're a good name to see hopping on!

Nice work Paul, and may I say thank you for A) Stopping over, and B) taking up some of those F'n Padawan figures hanging on the pegs at every WM store from coast to coast! :)

Seriously though, that's some good work.  I bet your son appreciates that.

I myself have pondered doiong some Youngling customs but finding smaller heads is a rarity.  :(

What's the pieces you used?  All new sculpt on the head?

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Wookie Army
« on: August 26, 2004, 11:07 PM »
Much like i've mentioned with Teebo, I think Hasbro should do this...

Make one definitive "generic" wookie sculpt.  Neutral pose, good (or preferably GREAT articulation, like VOTC Chewie), and then release him like that in a deco....  Any generic basic deco.

Later release an army builder of 4 figures, the same exact sculpt, all unique fur colors/patterns.  Like a black with grey-ish stripes, tan, brown, and maybe older looking brown-grey.

Pack in a variety of weapons...  Voila.  Army Building Wookie goodness that, unless E3 blows chunks, would suck the $ right out of the collector's wallets.

Completists will want all 4 variants plus the carded.  Army builders will want massive armies of all 5 figures, and extras to paint, and what kid isn't gonna want wookie troops?

Seems logical to me.  :)

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Are you having fun collecting?
« on: August 26, 2004, 02:26 AM »
I'm having fun through the fact that I customize so things I think suck I am at least working on in my mind how I'd go abut changing them.

I know the feeling though.  I was experiencing something similar during Saga.  Lotsa new product and I'd say well beyond 50% of it was crap in my eyes.  Attrocious stuff that a company as big as Hasbro should never have released with a clear conscious while they still utter that they're doing their best.

But, I always look at things thinking what I'll do to fix it...  If I can... 

I rather buy it and say "Not even gonna touch it, it's that good", like the VOTC Han or SA Clone", but alas that's a rarity.

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: CHEWIE's CUSTOM UPDATE
« on: August 25, 2004, 11:33 PM »
I know a plethora of people who would be irate that you used a Battle of the Bulge XD figure for customizing since they were (at least at one point) rare.  They're still something you can only get online.  :)

I agree on the Bib.  Best of the bunch, easily.  Very good parts use.
