Thanks man, it's appreciated...

I like to offer a little more of an open-minded opinion as far as "What could they have done...", so I always hope I convey that.  There's benchmarks set by other toy lines...  Hasbro is in competition for the almighty dollar like everyone else, so since I want Star Wars to dominate I think of things I point out as constructive criticism...

Some disagree.

Myself, I could care if some Hasbro employee's offended...  In the end it's his/her job to improve product quality, not have hurt feelings over my words. :)

And let's face it, I praise them when they deserve it...  They do lots right, just not every thing, or as often as they should/could.

The Force File you mean Ook?

I liked the FF's myself...  They're a unique little thing to have a complete set of I think.  Kinda like the Freeze Frames.

Lots of weird EU information and pictures...  Kinda neat, but simplistic.

Definitely one of the better figures of the line...  not sure on the vinty figure.  Since I was a kid I always thought he was asian, but by the card's photo I can't really tell myself.

I'm trying to hold off for stores, but it's seeming less and less likely to be...  may just have to try BBTS.  :-\

The only one who would've lead anything remotely close to that is sadly gone...  Like jjks said though, he'd probably be having the most fun in this thead right now.

The short of it is (and I'm keeping my comments much more brief than I'd originally planned on, for many of you), there's no conspiracy that has anything REMOTELY to do with as an entity.

If it's members from here, the site and its staff don't have a clue about it...  If they do, I say they need to just come here and be constructive than go there and jerk off RS's staff or generally piss you off Cory, but that's me...  They either A) Don't like you, or B) don't like Rebelscum, or C) don't like either of you...  I'd say that doesn't equate to JACK **** with Jedi Defender as far as responsibility goes though...  Our name shouldn't be uttered then.

There's no brilliant revelations coming from this thread, other than there's a LOT of people here who left (or were forced away) from Rebelscum...  Some want payback maybe?  I don't know, and honestly I don't care, but it's got nothing to do with this site since we'd not allow it or condone it.

My parting words are that if it's that big a deal, handle your business at your site (This is addressed to any Scum Mods who ARE here) and not out in OUR public forum.  And if it's a personal beef at another site, then take it up with their staff at their site...

We've got nothing to do with it, so drop it.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: 2005 Cantina Wave

I wrangled a set of these tonight...

Seems to me the $6.99 butt reeming, err, I mean the $6.99 price hike is hurting these new figures because these were put out Monday and there were two full sets of them this evening still at the same store (know a guy who works at the store).

I think they're not as good an Ebay investment now perhaps.

Well, Scott's already got them so I'm not breaking new ground for him... 

On Dannik Jerriko, the gaping holes in his face, to me, don't look as bad in person, but they're still unsightly, unnecessary, and I'd say they're generally unwanted.  Not cool..

That said, Dannik's bong holster rocks, and his bong itself is incredibly cool.  His holster holds his blaster snugly I feel (I've heard some complaints the holsters don't hold them, but to me I think the holster's just a tighter fit...  If you push the blaster fits in though).  I love the detail...  Lots of good paint applications here.  The figure could've stood either ball/socket shoulders, or ball/socket elbows...  Ankles wouldn't have hurt either, especially for the $7 hike.  Still he's cool.

Myo's pretty neat and has the best "drinking" pose.  :)  I love that.  His mug looks like his drink has a nice head of foam on it too.  I dig his colors of his space suit...  They included some neat poutch sculpts on his outfit too.  His holster also snuggly holds his blaster, however his hand isn't sculpted so the trigger finger fits his blaster.  That sucks.  Again I think ball/socket shoulders woulda done this figure a lot of positive bonus.

Feltripern (whatever) is neat too.  really nice and coloful, and probably the best headsculpt of the 3.  That's no small feat given that all 3 are nice.  The Gotal's not got a holster though, could use the same articulation the other two could, and his blaster's pretty warped (Run your hot water in the bathroom sink a while, then fill a dixie cup some and drop it in...  It should take its natural shape back...  Word to the wise guys!).  Gotal has a neat drinking pose too, but he can't hold his gun right...  Almost holds it drunk.

Anyway, a mini overview from me...  I'm havin' fun just playign with these right now...  Or, uhm, I mean I'm "posing" them for accurate recreations of Star Wars adventures...  And giggling while I do so.

The figure's neatness makes the $7 reeming less painful...  Some complimentary lube on the shelf might've helped though. 

I think had this been the OTHER POTC figures, that I would've only gotten Yarna and Pablo while leaving the rest.  :(  $7's pushing the envelope of what I can justify.  I mean, $23 about, for 3 figures.  Sheesh.   >:(

They're down...  It's a conspiracy from what I heard.  ::)

This one's for a couple of ya...

More soon when I can formulate something a little more clear and maybe even a substantial bit more blunt.

Actually Paul gave up a couple for fodder...  Amazingly. 

But I had Saga Lando Gen. and Han AT-ST that I got to help people out that I traded away for one...  "useless" isn't maybe the best word, but useless to me I guess since I don't do carded stuff.

And a VOTC Stormie to boot!  Yay!

Power Team Elite's got some weird stuff hitting overseas right now...

Firemen (seems like removable head gear too), "adventurers" like kayakers, mountain climbers, divers, arctic explorers and other junk...

Kinda neat really.  Their playsets are out too I guess.

Pretty good stuff overall...  PTE's some notches below 21st or BBI, but their accessories generally are "neat" for the most part and they're uber cheap too.

Can't argue with that.

I was out tonight doing some X-Mas shopping.  Not ONE new LOTR figure.  The TRU I was at had the old packaging gollums actually, and not another figure in the store.

I got some stuff for my bro, but nowhere near what all I wanted.  I was hoping for Shelob for the two of us at least, and maybe some of the army builders he's missing like the last Rohan guy, the Isengard Orc, or Shagrat or something...  But nada on the shelves really.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Christmas Songs that Suck
« on: December 14, 2004, 12:53 PM »
I've seen some folks list Snoopy Vs. Red Baron but I actually liked that song since I was little.  Never understood the lyrics till I actually sat and listened to it this year, but now I see how it pertains to X-mas...

It just took me forever to listen to it.

As a kid I just liked Snoopy flying around fighting someone... 

That "Whoopty Doo, and Dickory Dock" song still sucks, btw.  Absolutely friggin' terrible.

We got another one too Dale...  She just got home from her spaying today.  She has no tail and looks silly. 

The other two have adapted...  Tarkin plays with her, but Chaos just tolerates her. 

Oddly enough, not having a tail has the new cat fascinated by everyone WITH a tail.  So she attacks the tails of the other cats and Yellow Dog as well.

Someone posted a picture at Scum that was of a custom I think, but had the Neimodian soldier picture behind it...  Why, I do not know. 

If I find it I'll post.
