Run Scandisk/Defrag...  

Simple answer I know, but I bet it helps...  It always helps me when I'm having PC troubles that give me the same message you're receiving.

That Red protocol droid is indeed at Hoth...  :)  Check the hangar scenes.

It was in the m id 70's here today in Pittsburgh.

Yes, you read that right...  Mid 70's on November 3rd in Pittsburgh.

I got one last day in the car with the top down.  ;D

I too wonder what the deal is with this finding in the store's computer...  Should be interesting to see what comes of it.  It seems awfully early for an exclusive like this to be creeping into TRU's system already...  But, sometimes the product makes the system immediately after the details of the exclusive have been finalized and the product is a "go".

I'll be anxious to see exactly what this is that Stan's uncovered though...  Makes for good discussion to say the least. :)

Our hope is that Hasbro has the foresight to maybe ship this bad boy in a solid case of its own.

Or perhaps mixed with ARC troopers?  Like an 8:4 ratio of clones to red arcs, or 10:2 of the same order?

For those who want to see how an action figure SHOULD be done, head right on over to right now and check out the prototype shots of the Ultra Articulated Clone.

The poses simply rock...

This guy's got ball/socket joints everywhere. :)

BTW, here's the driect LINK right here for your viewing/reading pleasure.


Haha, j/k Scott.   ;D

With rank or station being indicated by the bright stripes though, I can see this...  The ARC's should, in theory, have their own rank structure for their own order/chain of command issues.  

It'd be important for when they're in combat, incase C/O's are offed at some point.

Oh I agree with that indeed.  The skirtpiece and headsculpt are a little addition that make it a LITTLE better than the POTF2 figures (Though I rather liked the Deluxe Hoth Rebel for what it was at the time), but the severe lack of articulation on this figure is pretty bogus.

I mean, how much action did we see outta those Rebel Echo Base troops?  Tons, and that just ruins this figure that he can't be posed in tons of action poses.  Army builders deserve that extra umph to make them fun to buy tons of.  This figure just got the shaft from Hasbro it seems. :(  

I like the comment that it seems almost like it was an afterthought figure...  Or possibly was created a LONG time ago, possibly when we first saw this and the Snowtrooper show up on lists a couple years ago?

Saga '02-'04 / Hoth Wave
« on: October 30, 2003, 06:13 PM »
Well, here he is...

And I have to say I'm pretty disappointed...  This isn't much of an army builder given what Hasbro's completely capable of at this stage of the game.

-The rifle, obviously, will be a gummy plastic and bent much like the Endor soldier's rifles....  

-The torso may very well be a reused POTF2 body judging by how broad shouldered it appears...  Not a sharp looking job there if it's a new sculpt.  

-The headsculpt's mediocre...  It's a generic rebel trooper with his goggles up which is nice in a way, but it's not the swiftest looking sculpt either.  

-The bowed legs are a big let down for any army builder...  If you're not going to articulate them, at least don't make them spread apart like that.  Not to mention they appear to be very awkwardly unproportionate just as the POTF2 figure's were (Too skinny, etc...)

-And the final, and to me the most disappointing aspect of this figure, is the articulation...  A basic 6 point figure?  Sheesh...  :(  Why no arm articulation to hold his blaster rifle properly?  

This guy's really nothing special right now...  his only redeeming feature is the skirt piece with a holster (Which MAY be functional).  If that's the case, that's good, but right now there's too much "bad" circling this figure than good.

A nice posable army builder is what we should've gotten for this, a figure who desperately needed resculpting from the POTF2 days.  Much like the Snowtrooper, I think the Hoth Rebel Soldier still is in need of yet another resculpt, even after this Saga figure...  Nice poseable versions of both army builders would be very welcome to me, and I'm sure many other collectors.

Unfortunately, this is a dark spot on the recent photos we got from Hasbro that were pretty sharp.  It was expected with this figure for me, but I really am disappointed that this one got the shaft from Hasbro...  I know I'd have bought a ton of this figure if it were worth it...  Now I'll just nab the "one" for my collection I guess.  :(  

A truly wasted opportunity I think, on Hasbro's part.

"Now Fox has a new rule that we can't do those little fake news crawls on the bottom of the screen in a cartoon because it might confuse the viewers into thinking it's real news," he said.

This sets up a good joke about Fox News, but I'll simply refrain.  :)  I just wondered if anyone else saw this wonderful opportunity presented?

I'm making a shark costume and going drinking tomorrow night.  I think a shark drinking will be funny on multiple levels.

That's a  BIG production error.  ;D

I think, after this many different photos (thanks Matt) it's probably legit...  I mean, imagine how many ARC's we have seen in stores.  I'd not be surprised if they have hit the half-way point of their production run (The general mark where the "running change/intentional variation" is made) and now we'll see red ARC's.

The only problem is, will they ship with MORE Anakins and  Yodas, or with Waves 2 and 3 of CW figures?

The ARC's are the ONLY CW figure selling out here.  Every store has either no ARC troopers, or maybe 5 at most...  Then Anakin and Yoda warm pegs.  And people say Army builders don't sell well!   ;)

Honestly, now I kinda wouldn't mind OTHER ARC variations.  Like a green one or something...  Then again, nobody knows what the ARC rank structure goes like so who knows if green or other colors even "exist".  May be a fun custom product though!

A chap at says he got one at WM tonight...

So, the mystery continues (no photo), but could it be a running variation that nobody heard of.  Like Scott said over in the aforementioned thread, it would be the first time in a LONG time that something snuck out without being leaked on the net boards first in a LONG time.

Like walking into the local 5 and 10 and finding the newest wave of G.I. Joes that you didn't even know were gonna come out!  (I'm reminiscing about when I was little and would find new figures at the local department stores...  Ah, the days before the net)

Hmmm, $45 for the Saga X-Wing with a figure?  Eh...  :(  

Not that I'm NOT happy to get a Red Leader figure (If he has a removable helmet), but $45 for another X-Wing is pretty expensive...
