Jeff just helped me with some VOTC figures (Stormie, Fett, and Yoda), and they arrived well packed, quickly, and minty fresh.

Can't ask for more...  Thanks Jeff.

I have played it, but I personally like the West End Games version better and rather use the new minis in the old game. 

Bob (Bobafett14) is playing it though, or tries to when we have a meeting, so that's one...  If "Blue Harvester" is who I think he is, he too is playing it, or at least as much as Bob is.

It's a good enough game.  You guys should try playing some time, but I like combat games between "armies" more.  IE: Squads of troops, larger forces on a table, little more "military" feeling than WOTC's game.  WEG's version was tailor made for combat with troops.  "Heroes" were a secondary aspect to the game that was possible but not as important.

Generally the hero was a squad sergeant or something.  :)  Some guys snuck in Han leading a group of commandoes, or Luke or someone as a "goal" to be rescued or some crap.

I haven't even bought a set myself.  I bought commons from some local guys just to army build.  That's the extent of my minis buying.  Can't find them for a price I'm pleased with paying though.

I had a night that I looked much the same...  Little longer perhaps, but the Bannister suffered the same fate.

I have no qualms with people who dump an error or "variant" on Ebay myself.  It's the one area of scalping I see no shame in anyone taking up.  If someone's willing to go that route for a damaged good, then so be it.

Had I not pulled this one off the card, I'd have put him on Ebay as a "First time selling" kinda thing.  I've never put anything up for sale so I'd just get the experience in.  And hopefully make a buck off of this poor excuse for a figure.

Guy's got so much wrong with him...  He's not even great custom Fodder really because of his 2 right legs.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Why Lucas tinkered with Star Wars!

Can anyone say "Out of touch"?

Seriously, I don't mind the changes overall...  I'm happy with lots from the original SE, and the DVD's didn't bug me or I felt actually were improvements.

That said, to not admit reality (that people...  LOTS of people.  Hate your "revisions") is assinine at best, completely, utterly, 100% incredibly naieve and stupid to say at worst....

I'd say he hit the "worst" mark moreso.

Lucas even acknowledges dislike of the changes.  I mean, for god's sake wake up dude.  Accept that what you're doing ISN'T appreciated like you think it is.  Sales in "Star Wars" mean nothing.  People buy this crap because they like Star Wars...

E1 had HUGE sales and is considered by most to be a terrible film.  Wake up to reality bub...  Just because it has Star Wars stamped on it doesn't make it "great".  That goes for the DVD's and everything else.  Lucas is more accepting of that mind-set than this schmuck is even...  That is incredible.

If one of us can find these available at the $10 rate (on 2-packs), I think we may be able to work together to distribute extras and such...  Divvy up the fundage.

Like I said, this is fodder to me...  I'm wanting Skeletons, and maybe one of each human (for potential parts), but the skeletons mostly.  Those in this scale are like finding virgins in a *****house.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What kind of car would you buy if.....
« on: October 27, 2004, 11:54 PM »
Sticking with the Chrysler Sebring Conv... 

Being a car you have to drive all the time, and all that jazz, that's why I went with it in the first place.  Comfy, practical, reliable...  Lot of the choices would be less than practical come crunch time and your car needs any level of work...  Especially the Euro fans.

While Smileyfaceguy is always a welcomed man, I disagree on jeeps...  2 of my friends have them.  They're some of the WORST rides I've ever been in, as far as comfort goes.  Bumpy, rigid suspensions don't make for comfort, but they're highly reliable vehicles that really perform above and beyond many 4x4's (even when stock) in bad weather.  Front wheel drive cars perform for what I need though, since I don't do off-roading, so that's my aim there.

Nick's choice of the new Mustang was borderline a choice for me...  Since no release yet, and nothing to really compare it to, I was hesitant.  I like its looks though.  It's a really incredible car though, from looks and its supposed features.  Dunno about traveling on bad roads in it, especially if it's RWD, though I don't know if it's RWD or not.  I'd just assume it is.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Episode III - Preview Figures (SPOILERS)

Yes and no...  Yes because it's there, but no because I think the feature it's accomodating is quite cool.  I'd actually kind of dig more sabres with that...  Maybe not so prominent/large, but it's a neat enough sabre feature.

Implies a removable blade too...  I loved those, even though some were breaking their figures because of it.  I haven't broken one yet, so it's a feature I highly enjoy.

I was wanting some Skeletons for customizing, but...  That's a tad pricey.  Hmmm

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: any ewok
« on: October 26, 2004, 12:56 AM »
Nothing on tap...  I have been hoping for a Warriors 4-pack that just redecoes Teebo, gives him 4 different colored plain (Wicket) hoods, and includes generic weapons like a bow/arrow, spear, axe, etc... 

That'd be an ultimate army builder set to me.

A new Wicket wouldn't hurt though, given the outrageous size of the current one when compared to "proper" scaled figures like new Leia figures.

I'd like the last of the Vinty's rounded out as well...

And this news goes further in that BBI's "SW" cobbled together figures are a push of a futuristic military toy line (confirmed via  Dunno what the final product would look like, but it could be a neat complement to people's Cantina dioramas, or Mos Eisly/Espa streets or something.

Good filler figures.

And the other news is 21st's got a possible 1:18 medeival line coming (COOOL), and possible lines for films like Platoon, Bridge Too Far, and an upcoming film they definitely have likeness rights to called "Sahara".

Sculpts of Charlie Sheen, Tom Berenger, and the dude that played Green Goblin (Name escapes me) were seen as well, so it's a certainty they have the rights to Platoon...  Bridge too Far just had Airborne figures strewn about as a display.

Nonetheless, customizers rejoice at the notion of making a scarred Tom Berenger Imperial Officer or Rebel Fleet Trooper (Sergeant!). 

I'm giddy folks!  This is good stuff on ALL levels here.
