Middle Earth / Re: Lord of the Rings Figures
« on: December 20, 2003, 03:01 PM »
Yeah, I actually thought the Orcs at Fangorn were more of Sauraman's till my brother said they were actually from Sauron, and it was to show the clash between the different breeds again.  Little details lost within the films.

BTW, look at those case assortments...

1 uruk Hai crossbowman?  What the hell's that all about?  Yet they're repacking King Theoden and Gollum?

These are the reasons I cannot get into this line much...  I'd buy 10 Uruk Hai Crossbowmen if they were made readily available I think, but I can still go to Target and get Theoden readily as it is on TTT boxes.  Sad, sad, sad...  Dare I say ToyBiz is superior to Hasbro in driving a toy franchise straight into the ground?

Celebration III: Indianapolis / Re: Celebration 3 is heating up.

2005's a ways off, so my plans for going will come down to the issues in my life at that stage.  We'll see...  I haven't made either, so C3 would be a nice jaunt off, likely with the Pittsburgh gang.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: SA Boba
« on: December 19, 2003, 03:22 PM »
Put me down for that Fett with a running change from ESB colors and weapon to ROTJ Colors and weapon.

Flame effects for the jetpack and his wrist flamethrower would be great too.

I like Lando's idea for all the trimmings on a Bounty Hunter Jango as well, and all the gear for a Boba too.

These could be some great figures...  

I'd take ANY super articulation figures at this point though.  Super articulation Hoth Rebels, Super articulation Hoth Snowtroopers, Super Articulation Scouts, Super Articulation Rebel Fleet Troopers, Super Articulation Endor Rebels (Saga and POTF2 style)...

If it's action-oriented, it should be super articulated and steadily released from its creation onward.  :)

Actually, there's no Uruk Hai in ROTK because only Saruman had the UH's...  They were unique to his army I guess (My brother's a LOTR fanatic, he let me know this last night when I asked about the lack of Uruk Hai too).

He said the various Orcs all pretty much hate each other, and that this wasn't explained well to cover the Sauron's tower incident with them kililng each other.

Thanks for the tips Zed...

These are just d/l's I'm getting, and don't really know even how to make a .mp3, haha.  :)

I'm being told by friends that I have to just d/l 3 or 4 times before I get a decent copy of a file sometimes.  Oh well.

I really did have a blast at the movie last night, and I haven't felt that pumped about a movie in ages.  It really gave me the urge to buy LOTR figures, and if the Toy Biz line were a little better, broader, and more consistent in quality (And perhaps a little cheaper) I'd be much more interested in it.

Seeing the wide variety of characters, army builders especially, just makes you wish for a better line.  I pick up one here and there that I really REALLY like, or if it's on uber clearance, but beyond that I just can't bother with a line that just doesn't do the films justice I don't believe.

Imagine if they had a wider range of characters, better sculpts, and a consistent "standard" of articulation such as that found on figures like the Berzerker Uruk Hai...  That line would clean house in the toy aisle.  It sells amazingly well as it is, but it could be so much more to the fans I think.

Oh well...  Perhaps someday, though they'll never have the push as they do now with the films and the toy industry being as it is today.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Am I the only one...?
« on: December 18, 2003, 12:25 PM »
Who's been taking his Super Poseable Clone Trooper and putting all kinds of different weapons in his hands and envisioning all these different "Super Articulated" figures that should be holding them?

Like I gave him the long CT Stormtroooper rifle and he just looks great...  Then I gave him Dr. Evazan's pistol (From Bo Shek) and posed him holding it with 2 hands like the production photo of a stormtrooper they used in the Visual Dictionary.

Then I put a Rebel Assault Rifle in his hands and imagined Endor Soldiers and Hoth Rebels able to hold their rifles in all the different poses I put my clone into.

He even held small blasters like Han's pretty well, and in a believeable fashion (though his fingers are a little too open for some of the gun handles.

The best was putting the proper scaled Imperial E-11 Blaster from Cloud City Escape Chewbacca into his hands, and imagining stormtroopers holding that blaster the same way.

I really can't get over the fun this figure has given me. :)  And I don't even care for the prequals as much as classic characters.  I wish every figure I had was this much fun!

I got Spiderman 2 on mine, which was ok actually.  Relatively long, and a decent trailer.  I'm not even a Spidey fan.

I also got The Mask 2 which has some CGI baby in it.  It appears to me to be the type of film you would get a nosebleed if you thought about for more than 5 seconds.

The new Punisher trailer was also up...  Again, not something I'm into, but it was there.

beyond that I can't think of any other trailers off-hand.  There was a commercial for some robotics company working on the first C-3PO unit for humanity that will be mass-marketed.  

Everyone kind of laughed at the stupidity of the advertisement.

And that was that.

Mid-way through the film, it broke on the reel (Sound was bad throughout too), and I thought a riot was about to ensue.  Scary times when geeks lose their film mid-way, hehe.

:)

Hey, I gotta ask this somehow ya know?  And I'm not worried about all that junk they might embed on these files.  I'm protected.  Ad-Aware snuffs that crap out like a mutha, as the youths may say.

And no, Mozilla will NOT be on my system so long as I have an oz. of fight left in me against IE.  I WILL make it work...  I HAVE made it work.  

Things are running dandy now.  Knock on circuit board.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: RUMORS FOR 2004!!!!!!
« on: December 18, 2003, 03:09 AM »
If they make one, will the other be soon to follow?  Hmmm...  Then again, there's no basis for this since only the one Duros was made too, but I guess I was thinking "Dignitary" or "Ach Med Beqq" maybe.

Yeah, Happy B-Day to Dave...  A guy who can remember buying vintage figures from ANH even.   :P

Thanks for the tip Dave.

Hmmmm, I wonder if there's anything to get around this or even how it's done really?  It's all very confusing.  I'd heard of something like this but hadn't experienced it till now so I found it quite suprising.

Blah, just when I got things straightened around on my system.

Ooh man, you're missing out by not watching this one Matt...  It's definitely funny.  It matches every office situation I've ever been in, and every office situation my friends work in too.  It's sad in its own way, but very funny.  :)  I'm surprised this is one you've not seen yet.
