Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC/OTC Purchases
« on: January 28, 2005, 01:41 AM »
Spuffy, check your PM's.  I got you your Leia...  Actually it's down to Ben and Luke at that store now, haha.  :)  Leia and Han dried up quick so I got some of the last of those two.

Jason reminds me...  Hell yeah I'm gonna sink $ into vintage then too, so long as I see its "market trend" on a downward slope. :P

I'd like to get into carded figures heavily after modern's done.  (Vintage carded I mean)

With the new movies and everything driving it, the vintage has its spikes in price so I just stay away from it for the most part, save for reasonable loose figures to upgrade or finish up my collection...  That's about it.

Vinty though, yeah I'd still be into that.

Episode 1 / Re: Anyone else army build with EP1?
« on: January 28, 2005, 01:36 AM »
I could use more of any version save the cream Saga version.  The Red's though, I could always use more of and it appears white/cream may be the color for E3...   The E1 droid's sturdiness came in handy.

I really don't have big prequal armies though.  E3 may change that, but E1 wasn't very inspiring and E2 wasn't exactly easy to army build with.  Red BD's weren't a dime a dozen as they should've been, and the cream ones were poor quality.  The SA CLone being the only Clone I want to army bild with wasn't easy to find, and isn't being made any "easier" to army build with by Hasbro...  $10 a figure doesn't equate to me having an army of 100+ clones like my stormie army is. 

Oh well...  Whatcha gonna do?  :(

There's something kind of ironic about the timing of this thread just because I'm reading stuff at Scum right now that I find disturbing...

There's a movement, and don't get me wrong because there's some people involved in it that I get along with, but I just simply disagree with the philosophy that I'm seeing there...

There's a mini-rage flowing over people quitting collecting, either it be all together or simply quitting a segment (IE: quitting collecting of prequal items).  Things tossed about in the debate are "You're not a real fan..." blah blah blah.

I for one don't think you can judge fans by that...  To me, I honestly don't care if the line continues or not sometimes.  Sometimes I really want certain things, other times I think it's just time the line end because of various reasons...  Not to get off on a tangent there, it just struck me kind of funny talking about the "end" of the line with Star Wars and all...

Anyway, myself, I think if the line ended that two things would happen with me. 

First, I'd first be putting more time, $, and effort into customizing than I do now.  I dont' put much into any of that really, though I should be.  It's one of the better parts of the hobby I've found, and one that can yield the best rewards to me as far as satisfaction from collecting.  I know if I wasn't shilling out $5 a figure, multiple figures at a time most of the time, that I'd have the extra scratch to do what I really want to be doing...  Oh well.

The other thing is that I'd be collecting, as I do now, is the military figures I collect...  I doubt I'd do much more with that than I already do.  I can't get one of everything there...  Planes are just too big to store.  So I'd just army build what figures I want, get what ground vehicles I could, and pick out planes I like here and there...  Same as I do now.

Beyond that, customizing (especially since I really would know what I needed to work on) would be a major focus.  I'd get a lot more established there.

Between school, family, finances, social life, etc. though, I just don't do as much in that end of the hobby as I'd like to.  Mostly finances have held me back though, to do exactly what it is I wanna do, the way I want to do it. 

Other Toy Lines / Terminator (Aliens, Predator, Etc.)... 4" Scale.

Sounds like it's maybe coming...  No pictures yet, but I guess some stuff was previewed this past year at a show.  It is indeed in the Star Wars scale as well.

Veeeerrrrrrrryyyyy interesting.

I'm wanting some resistance fighters and Endoskeletons!!!  An Arnold figure for customs is just gonna be funny as hell too.

Oh you're in friendly territory, trust me.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Episode III - Preview Figures (SPOILERS)
« on: January 27, 2005, 09:37 PM »
TRU's usually good about not leaking stuff early so I'm surprised they have them too.  Maybe trying to beat otehrs to the punch.  Do you recall the price on them there Jared?

I hoped to find some at my nearest WM tonight but no luck.  I would've grabbed a Wookie and R4 if they had either...  Oh well, guess my local WM read the street date because other than ANH VOTC and a Felipern on the pegs, they really had nothing of note...

I'd dig more wookies, that's for sure.

I'm actually not wild about R4's "feature".  Guess I like the turning head more than one laden to a feature, but I'm sure he's a good figure either way... 

impressive to say, but I think standing General Greivous (not easy) is probably the only major negative to any of the figures.  None are perfect by any means, but they blow E2's entire run out of the water in my book.  If this is Collection 2's quality this year, then color me impressed.  It appers to be the case too, so I dare say I'm more excited about collecting this year than I have been in ages.  Figures I finally don't feel that I have to "fix" in some way or another... 

Looking at Aayla Secura's images, I'm already tossing the extra AS I got on clearance into my fodder bin for something else.  Hell, I even appreciate the AOTC AS even more now because she's cool for that one kicking pose, and I'll just dig having a fairly super poseable one for any dioramas I ever want to use with her in it.

Life's good...  I just now hope they carry this level of quality into the OT and start redoing things.  I'd take me some Classic army builders as nice as that Preview Wookie I know.  Rebels need that kinda quality, and a Death Star Trooper is sorely needing to be that cool too! :)

I prefer to revert to as young and idiotic as I can pull off in most of my posting.  I'm even contemplating overuse of all punctuation keys as well as randomly locking and editing threads wherever I can now.

You can just call me Jesse(e) then.

The Original Trilogy / Re: The Return Of Spaceballs?
« on: January 27, 2005, 09:20 PM »
Weird, but true it seems, and ya know I think it has a huge potential since more adult-oriented cartoons have become quite popular.  Like Family Guy and other shows like that...  I could see this being a huge hit.

I'm actually anxious about what it may be like...  May give a reason to watch cartoons for me. :)

Star Wars Dioramas and Displays / Re: Modular Cloud City

[rebelscum] Very Nice!!!! :) [/rebelscum]

hehe  :)

Anyway, looking great Muftak...  I'm surprised you took the time out to do the Takkies in the midst of such a project. 

The cell's looking great and I think you picked colors that fit the bill all around.  Cloud City had such a distinct array of colors that maybe made it a little bland to look at in the films but you have to work to capture it in playset form...

I think you should consider extending it to be a larger playset though.  Not that what you've done isn't great, but just thinking you could even do more to wow us.

Will you include tupper wear bins for 3PO parts in the prison? :)   And do I detect a slide-out bed/bench too in the prison as well?

My only other suggestion, since Hasbro's CCP is so nice, is a small landing platform for the Cloud Car...  A vinty one would look nice.  If you really wanted to go ape**** with it you could make one for the Falcon instead...  :)  Eh, just a thought.

I really want more wookies now...  They've been spotted at a 2nd WM in my area now so maybe I can nab R4 too this week...

I'm sorta hurting financially right now, but there's stuff I want...  It's killing me that I have a 4 month pounding to the wallet from November to February.  :(

JD Sports Forum! / Re: Super Bowl XXXIX New England vs Philadelphia
« on: January 23, 2005, 10:53 PM »
Well, obviously I am incredibly sad right now...  I'm disappointed in the overall performance of the STeelers the last two games.

Roethlisberger's gonna take a lot of the heat, and that isn't fair considering our pass coverage was non-existant tonight (Brady had his pick of downfield throws it seemed), and a lot of the plays were botched at times by receivers...  Of course Plaxico's already whining about not getting enough throws to suit him and leaving the team.   ::)  Ward was playing hurt, so I give him credit, and he's always a class act too after the game.

The Pats played the exact same way they did  in October, they just made it connect and we didn't make our end of things work...  Oh well, "any given sunday" as they say.

Lots of little things killed us, and the Turnovers obviously.  I'm disappointed, but now I just root for Philly instead I guess...  Go Eagles.  I still love the Steelers and I'll be back to supporting them next year.  Hopefully we'll return with an improved "Big Ben" who's got more solid experience, and I'm hoping Bettis returns...  Again a solid guy and class act who I'd love to watch play a little while longer, though he's concerned about his health after football I'm sure.

Welp, Go Eagles...  :)
