Hey Christopher,

Welcome to Jedi Defender, and it'll be nice having someone active in the vintage area and video games...  Good to have the additional voices in those two areas.

Thanks for stopping by and if you've got any questions feel free to ask away...  I'm sure you're used to the routine from other boards though.  We keep things loose here though so enjoy yourself.

Take it easy man,


Other Toy Lines / Re: Terminator Toy Line... 4" Scale.

 :-\  Well, it seems like they don't have many of them, and those they do have are sold out for the most part (not all)...  That sorta sucks.

I wonder where I could get a case, and what it'd run me?  I'd dig having one of those chase figures, bigtime!

I saw lots of red ones, and bought them now and then thinking they'd be semi-abundant but they dried up fast.  When the 3-packs clearanced they dried up too, though I always felt that BD 3-pack shoulda been one SBD (just re-release the Saga one if you ask me) and pack in 2 red BD's...  That would've helped a lot.

I got some, just not as many as I'd like having.  A 4-pack of BD's of a single color would go a long way I think, as a steady seller.  I don't think it'd fly as fast as the Clones, but I bet it would do well at the right price with the right quality behind it (IE: won't fall over under their own weight like the Saga white droids did).

Adam (BigDumbWookie) mentioned this elsewhere and I thought it'd be a good list (compiled by the Indy Knights I believe) of eateries in Indianapolis...

I'm gonna probably map out some things for my gf and I to go do in the evening based off this list.  Thanks to Adam for pointing this out too...  It's a nice help for us out-of-towners.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Hairy Chewbacca
« on: January 31, 2005, 07:12 PM »
I'm with Scott for the most part...  We've got pretty much every Chewie we could want perfect.  I would go a step further though, and think it'd be great if they re-issued VOTC with the Cloud City Escape Chewie's head as an "ANH" version.

But beyond that, then I totally wish they would try a real fur Chewie...  If it were really special I dare say I would go and pay $10 for it if done right.

I think it'd be funny at least...  "Fuzzhead" Chewbacca.

BTW Beth's comment about rolled in brown sugar has me cracking up.  Never thought of that, but yeah he does look like a tasty breakfast treat.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Trooper 4 Packs!

I can't say it's a practical answer either.

Buying figures for guns = a much higher cost on something that already costs a good bit.

I have extra rifles, so while I'm not completely set on arming my clones, I'm close.  I'm thinking of a secondary method to arm them with rifles too that won't be entirely cost-prohibitive but it may be a while before I get on that...

To me, I agree that a non-painted rifle should've been included.  I'd have liked it much more.  I don't see why they didn't pack BOTH in though, so you could choose.  It seems the more "Hey, we like our customers!" kind of thing to do.

The peghole thing though, while I understand people are annoyed by their lack of pegholes, I still see Hasbro's reasoning for not "fixing" that.  I was never that annoyed by the peghole thing either though so maybe I'm biased.

That's a waste of a perfectly good Ardennes German figure!  ;)  Those aren't easy to get ahold of...  Well, not hard either, but they're not cheap!

You could always come visit me...

Indiana PA is about 30 or 40 minutes away and where IUP campus is.   :-\  Hope you can get that fixed Famine.

It's funny that this idea has resurfaced now how many times?  Twice at least?

Hasbro really wants a "Fuzzhead" (You oldschool G.I. Joe fans will recognize that one) Chewbacca out there on pegs.

To me I think they coulda tried with the Saga Mynock Hunt Chewbacca...  That was one of the most uninteresting figures ever I think.  Especially since we'd just gotten the Cloud City Escape Chewbacca that was vastly superior.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Trooper 4 Packs!
« on: January 31, 2005, 02:43 PM »
So in's Q&A column the question was posed to Adam Pawlus about the weapons and footholes in the Clones, since Adam's had a hand in the creation of the sets.

The foothole question I completely see as unwarranted, as while I agree that some footholes would be nice, I also see where "retooling" isn't a simple thing you just go in and do and it increases costs...  And in this case I have to think it's relatively unnecessary.

By now I assume you've guessed there's no footholes on these guys like the original SA Clone.

But what perplexes me is the issue of the gun, which Adam Pawlus said is the small Carbine the original SA Clone had, and not the large rifle which was the predominant weapon the Clones used in the film.

I have my theories and reasons explaining to myself why Hasbro did this, but I don't think they're really GOOD reasons beyond sheer laziness...  The footholes I can buy easy as I never thought it was even in question about that, but the weapon's a matter of simply changing the production order for the item I believe, while I think Hasbro simply said "we'll produce more of product # 1138 with deco alterations...  That's it", rather than changing it for accessories as well.  It's not a cost issue really, so I don't see it being anything other than an issue of laziness.

My question posed would've been, "why the hell are these costing $10 a figure when sold as individual packs, instead of being a reasonable $5-$6 a figure except when you buy by the case?", or something to that effect. :) 

I guess it's all in your priorities.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: How Many Of These Have YOU Seen?
« on: January 31, 2005, 02:37 PM »
I've seen 27 (just counted, not listing them right now)...

Not sure I agree with the list really.  A) because Star Wars and ESB aren't above LOTR trilogy...  Don't get me wrong, LOTR is great but I can't see putting a trilogy that OWES its existance to Star Wars ahead of the films by which it exists...  And B) I simply think they're a better set (ROTJ included) of films than LOTR.

LOTR I'd have right on their heels though...  Though not sure how I'd rank them.  A lot of die-hard Tolkien fans rank ROTK as the lowest.  Part of me thinks they put it higher not knowing the books really, and based on the awards it finally won that the whole series deserved...  Anyway...

ROTJ not on the list is disappointing...  I think they put too much stock in the "classics" too.  Nice to see it more rounded than many mainstream film listings though.

Modern Classifieds / VOTC Stormtroopers Wanted (Among Others)
« on: January 31, 2005, 01:49 PM »
Army building obsession continues I guess...

I am looking for the following:

-VOTC Stormtroopers (I know lots of folks had better luck, and some worse luck, than I did finding these on clearance so I thought maybe if anyone had extras they'd be willing to help me gain a respectable army).

-Imperial "Officers"...  The POTJ or Saga variants.

-4-pack/Vader Case Stormtrooper...  The Trooper everyone hates that's a kitbash of the Commtech and POTJ Sandtrooper.

-4-Pack AT-ST Driver (Kitbashed figure)

I'm mostly looking to buy since I doubt I have much in trade fodder that anyone wants, however I do have a beat-up Ephant Mon, the Naboo Royal Guard on E1 card (x2), and some other little things someone may need/want.  Never hurts to try.

I'm all about buying though, so let me know if you can help out...

Wow I had no idea it was even a miniature.  I was thinking it was a Saga Clone base...  Very cool that the Mini Dengar's the same sorta pose as he had.  Very cool...  I wonder if the Commando's will show in the future EU minis that may come?
