Underneath I'd assume, or snapped into the droid's body. that's part of the ship, but I'd assume it's screwed in by the design of it.

Jeff, you forgot...

21) Han Solo (Peg Clogger)
22) Han Solo (Shoved up your pooper by Hasbro)

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: "Transition" figures. You buying?

If Sandie's come in flavors, I'll consider it, but I'm pretty set on them personally...

Beyond that, it's more the same...  The Han is just astounding.  I feel like someone punched me in the stomach.

I swear to god, there's a WM near me that has that Han Solo on 3 different cards.  :)  I'm just astonished.  If I could, I'd take the guy that said to repack that thing again, grab him by the throat, and make him look at that peg of Han's at my one WM.  I mean...  Seriously, go to a store ya morons, go to a god damned store.

Oh yeah, and actually look while you're there.

I could use the ROTJ VOTC DPC's myself...  Or Endor wave.   :-\

I'm not even THINKING about the future stuff.

I can't say I need a LOT, but what I need I'm a bit concerned over...  More than I have been in a while, and likely because it's some of the highest quality product Hasbro has ever put out...

For the VOTC I still need 2 CHewie's, my 3PO, R2, and 3 Stormtroopers...  Then I'll be at my set goal.

For OTC I need a Gam Guard, Madines, and I'd take Han AT-ST's if I could find them as well as an extra Lando.  I've never seen that wave, in any incarnation, at a store so far.  Only gotten them via trades or through friends and on the Saga cards.  My Madine broke while reviewing it so I'm desperate to replace him...

Beyond that then, I'd be "caught up" and would buy more VOTC STormies if I saw them and had the extra $ I was sure.  Then it's onto the Transition figures.

The POTF2 Y-Wing's got a droid dome screwed into it.  There's some reworking of the mold itself, so it's not really a removable piece as I recall of mine...

It's more a solid piece.

Only one season being blamed for a spiral that rivals that of a flushing toilet? :)  I think that's lenient.

The Original Trilogy / Re: ROTJ Sound Funny?

Wow Jared, I didn't even notice a reply to this so I apologize for my obviously delayed response, haha.  :)  I'd given up on this thread.

Well, your words are a bit over my head...  I plug a TV in and let 'er rip more or less...  haha

Yeah, not exactly techno savy here.

I know I don't have surround sound, so I can tell you that much.  My TV's actually  not even got the red, white, and yellow ports most TV's have nowadays...  It's that old.  It's kickin' though so I just don't get anything new till this one works no more.  I'm assuming then that my TV has the latter.

I watched ROTJ at my girlfriend's house though, which renders that moot I guess, and her TV's big but I don't believe it has surround sound either...  She just has what the set has. 

The problem we noticed was dialogue not always matching character's lips...  Or things seeming very "soft" at times.  One sound louder than another and such...

Perhaps it is time I lept into the 20th Century (only one behind isn't so bad) and got surround sound for my mini TV I got going? :)

Hey Jeff,

If you're by chance expecting any extras of VOTC ROTJ and a Yoda/3PO from the ESB wave, give me a hollar.

I'm still diggin' for Chewie (x2), R2, and 3PO, and I need doubles of the Stormie and Fett (actually need 4 Stormies for my "quota" as it were).  Just give me a hollar...  I dunno what you've maybe got on order or whatnot since I know a lotta you guys put in pre-orders.

As it stands I may take a Fett and Yoda off your hands if you wanted...  I dunno if you or the others are gonna wind up with extras of those other ones I need or not though.  :(

Other Toy Lines / Re: The Official 21st Century Toys Thread
« on: October 11, 2004, 10:08 PM »
With GP's closing, a member there by the name of "P-51", came up with a new forum, and I'd say a much superior one at that.

This is the new forum replacing GP's old one though when he finally closes up shop in the coming month(s) or whatever.

And on a bright note for me:

1) BBI's released photos of their first foray into WW2 1:18.  They put up shots of a 1:18 Sherman tank they've been working on...

Now, the question is whether or not they'll have figures accompanying the vehicles.  Pack-ins or even carded.  I'm really anxious to see them possibly stepping into the WW2 market that 21st Century is too lazy to get off their asses and fill with product.

BBI's not perfect, but they at least get product to the shelf, and that's 100% more than 21st does.

2) I've found "new" BBI figures recently.  The guys with berets previewed at Toy Fair (and who've been out around the country for months and months now) just now showed up at Toys R Us stores in my neck of the woods. 

I also was able to get some of the blackhawk pilot/crew figures.  There's a white guy in green and a black guy in tan available.  The black guy's packed in with the new "spec. Forces" guys with the berets...  The white guy is packed in with Navy Seal repacks.

The guys with berets all have new weapons, nicer cammo paintjobs (IMO), and their limbs are MUCH sturdier unlike the first Marines that their bodies are copies of.  Their limbs stay together, but those USMC figures fell apart with every far cross-wise.

The Spec. Forces guys are direct copies of the Marines though, and don't sport any new headsculpts, so just beware that you're buying basically the same grunts with new guns.  I got the sniper (in tan) and a "Support gunner" with a weapon I personally can't identify and a stinger missle.

They're cool, they're superior to the Marines, so I may even buy more at some point, but till BBI fixes their figure construction overall, they're not as cool as I'd like.

It's nice to have something new to buy though, and they're "nice enough" to me.

Unfortunately I turned up no new Star Wars figures.  There's nothing here and it's starting to piss me off that something I want to buy is just nowhere to be found at this point.  Retail and Hasbro are both ******** in my book...  Hasbro for their horrible case assortments and the fact they are the ones that make e-tail a "hit or miss" thing, and then Retailers for pressuring Hasbro on ****** case assortments and for not restocking when their brain-dead purchasers don't know squat about their product they're buying, overorder, and then treat the line like it's contageous then.

May you all burn in hell...

Yeah that's a little strong, but I just wasted a lotta gas for a lotta nothing.  Buncha dorks.

That's nice how it wraps around there Jeff.  It looks really nice.

We just got done putting a new roof on the back portion of the house this past week.  I got a week off from school and had some things i wanted to get done...  Instead I put a roof on.    ::)

You officially can't have sex with a girl in that town anymore without worries of any myriad of VD I'd wager.

Good luck in love my friend.
