Count me in at 33% as well.

Not totally gay, but gay enough to be liked by women?  I dunno...  I'm not buff enough, nor fashion concious enough.  I should be though.   :-\  I wish I didn't have to try hard at things like that.

I almost hope NOT, unless they do the TE to-scale.  Not a huge vehicle really, and one that "Assembly required" could make its packaging quite small or reasonable really.  I'd love an AT-TE but not at the cost of it looking silly next to the uber detailed figures we get.

I was disappointed with the Gunship for that reason myself.

I REALLY am hoping no Juggernaut though.  That'd be underscaled, no two ways about it, unless Hasbro took a real gamble like 21st Cent. Toys has with their 1:6 tanks...  Then a Juggernaut could be cool but horribly expensive to the majority.

I dunno, I just think Hasbro should stick to small vehicles and do them to-scale.  Do them justice.  Big stuff didn't do too swift in AOTC as far as sales, to-scale or not.

Give me the fighters to-scale, speeders, etc...  Leave the big stuff up to the imagination or customizers.

PS:

The push light's an awesome touch btw.  I've wanted to try something along the lines of using those push lights.  They're relatively inexpensive and look useful, but I've yet to work on a project I really wanted to put big domed lights in.

I have considered something a light-up holo-table thing though, like in AOTC.  Not a film diorama though I don't think.  Just something from my own cranial cavity.

Very nice Muftak.

I like that the contours of the Bespin set aren't rigid and square.  You captured the way Cloud City sorta curves and circles in its architecture, while your Death Star was more squarish, as its architecture was.

Very cool.

I'm curious to see what you'll maybe try/do with the freeze chamber, and Hasbro's mini-fc they made some years ago.  I liked that set a lot, though it's small.  It worked though.  I thought it was only needing to be bigger itself, or be something they made additions for that snapped to it.

My CW army's not huge, but I'm just waiting for SA Clones to pump it up.  The pre-posed were just not cutting it.

My personal favorite moment of brilliance for him, at this moment anyway, is the fact he's single-handedly getting a thread going for EVERY figure in the recent E3 figure list, and giving them their OWN topics one at a time.

Very classy, and smart.    :-X  Brilliance.

I don't have the foggiest clue what motivates these people.  Why they have to see their words typed out in public.

Boil/pop for everything, never cut.  It's not condusive to good figures afterwards I've found.

I'm not banking on a clearance for these.  Every time any show, they seem to sell out, or at least that's been my experience.  I found ONE in a store.  UnfortunatelY I've had to deal for them or get them online otherwise.

:(

ANH figures are even dwindling.  I dunno about you guys but the #'s of those at Wal-Mart are dramatically lower in recent weeks.  Early spikes in buying for X-Mas maybe?

Antilles in ANH wasn't particularly old though.  I find it odd they'd put him in E3, but that's me.  I mean the droids could be passed around some before reaching him.

I always figured Organa would've gotten them, and just made sure they were attached to something under his control, and eventually Leia's.  IE: The Tantive IV.

Minor, but since I discovered the Antilles arm swap and how it makes him a completely better figure, I am now on an Ozzel/Antilles kick and trying to scarf up what's left.

Ozzel's just as tough to find here now, so I'm having a rough go, but my lady picked up two Antilles at her local WM tonight.  Limb swap on the way, and then head swaps down the road for them.

Yay!

It took one of the only major CONS I had on Antilles and really (No pun) turned it around.

Sooo, by turning the arms around, I had very little real gripe with the figure at all.  Still not articulated WELL, but better than before.

Time to buy up Antilles figures in my area because I'm whipping up an officer army.

Yeah, the people everyone generally DOES dislike have their own threads.  Like GNT, the "kids" club, etc.

Scum's been as interesting as ever.  Seriously.

That's such a sad, sad statement of affairs there.  The place is a train wreck.  It was before, but now it's just 10 x worse. 

It's funny to watch from afar though.  Incase I need to find something new to be thankful for, it is having a place separate of that clusterf of stupidity.

I honestly don't mind DBB and LJ as people, but neither one is fit to mod there.  I don't know that anyone can manage that 3-ring fiasco, plus the sideshow too.

Welp,

I've already heard (twice) that god damned "Whoopty doo, and dickory dock" song at stores.  It's not even black Friday and that crap is already playing repeatedly.

Oh, and I despise that little bastard on the Old Navy commercial that says "They sure are festive".

I'd kick that child in the teeth I think.   >:(

Very funny.  :)  I liked Chewie taking a nutty in the break room.

SC commercials are definitely creative.  Can't say I watch the show routinely since I get most of my sports from the paper, but the commercials are always a riot.
