I'd really like to hear the end of that one...  :)  Not familiar wth that Kevin. 

My mother's sayings were always kind of vulgar, like "Sticks out like a turd in a punchbowl", "Crows **** him/her on a fencepost and the sun hatched him/her", etc...

Weird, yeah.  Kinda old sayings I guess.

Hey guys, thanks for the well wishes.  They're much appreciated.  Got in from school, cruising the forums, and I'm gonna go have a beer in a second I think.

No SW swag to speak of yet...  I'll keep all up to date on that.

Lotta uh, kisses in those messages there.  No offense, but you guys aren't cute enough for me, I hope you know that.

Well, maybe Scott...   :-X   *pinky to corner of mouth*

Other Collectibles / Re: WOTC SW Miniatures (RPG/CMG/Clix)

Thankfully, if I get into these as a replacement for the WEG minis to play Tabletop miniatures Battles, the troops aren't overly rare... 

Kinda sucks really though.  I guess it's all just a tool for sales, but in the end I'm not overly fond of this game's rules, but the minis will make a nice way to supplement the ORIGINAL Star Wars Miniatures Battles game at least.  Some of the "rares" though would make nice minis for officers and whatnot.  Sorely needed.

I'll be anxious to see what else they make for the line as far as Classic figures goes...  If they try catering to the old Minis Battles crowd with excessive #'s of troops like it seems they may be aiming for, and they diversify the troops down the road, or if they'll just focus towards the new game's set of rules.   :-\  I hope not the latter for multiple reasons. 

Hey Waga, I can help out with some of this stuff I think...

I'll see about getting a PM together for you here and send it out soon.  Keep your eyes peeled.  I only wanna sell what I've got as I'm not really in need of anything but some VOTC figures really, and Saga stuff you need (The Endor wave) so I can't help ya there.

I'll get it together when I can...


You buying WOTC minis?  You gonna game with them OTHER than with the craptacular rules set-up WOTC has for their lame-ass game?

Well then, you're in luck because your figure diversity is more than you realize.  The AF figures are REALLY close to-scale as are many AF items.

AF figures have long-seen a life within the old West End Games minis battles game (tabletop) and now they can live on with the WOTC game as well, witha little work, or if you're using the WOTC minis as replacements to WEG's minis for the Tabletop battles, then you're in luck because AF still looks good.

Yes, keep your options open young padawan.  They'll serve you...  Those cheap-ass AF figures will help supplement your armies, or your civilians you wanna off at random.  :P

Other Collectibles / Cakepans... They Running High?
« on: September 6, 2004, 01:29 AM »
I've never actively tried getting the Cake Pans from Wilton, but I've always wanted at least Darth Vader...  Now that I know there's 2 others beyond Vader and R2, I've started looking around (I had no idea about Fett actually till Bobafett14 showed me his that he just got.  I love it!).

So I'm out and about in the market for these, but Vader's are even going higher than I thought.  I figured these were relatively cheap...

Does anyone know their original retail?  Anyone know what a good price was on these so I can judge if they've gone up or something?

I'd love at least a Vader one in minty condition, but I've been surprised to see what they are going for (not that it's terribly high, but for a used one with no packaging it's higher than I thought).

Revenge of the Sith / EP3 Clonetroopers

So what do you think Hasbro's gonna do about Clones this go-round?

From what I'm aware of, the Clone's body doesn't change at all (does it?) but the helmet becomes a hybrid of a Stormie's and Clone's... 

I'm very anxious to see what kind of Clones are available to us at retail with the next movie.  THe last was disappointing to me, on all levels.

The 3-packs weren't poseable and felt relatively "cheap" to me...  The original Clones (all of them) were pre-posed, had articulation with really no use, and the Clone Pilot had that damned lean to it.

The SA Clone is a great figure, but obviously so horribly limited...  Will it ever see the light of day in #'s that would satiate the masses?  We may  never see it again, sadly, for whatever illogical reason Hasbro could give us.

So will E3 be as big a flop for Clones?  I'm hoping not...  I'm hoping we see simply the SA Clone with a new head.  Hell I'd take it with the old head too, but the new Head as well...  Maybe pack both heads in even, I don't know.

I just hope we SEE this figure, and not a pre-posed wonder like the last film showed us.

I wont' even begin on the Biker Clone...  Yeck!

That sounds like a neat set-up with the Yodas....

The snake, I think a lotta folks aren't noticing that it's able to coil around Luke's arm if you wanted it to...  At least that's how it looks to me, like it's to coil around Luke's arm (for when he's de-snaking his X-Wing) or even around the gun of the Dagobah X-Wing.

Yoda's flute's a neat touch too... 

I wish I could FIND the 2nd VOTC wave...  There's literally empty pegs everywhere for VOTC.  We're the exception, not the rule, so I hear, but it's weird and I'd like a couple Vader's and at least one Yoda.

For the back, I think a cardback or title type thing that fills the back would be neat...  Like a blank SW card template, a blank ESB card template, and a blank ROTJ card template for the 4 figures from each line.

And like Dave confirmed, the pegholes are different, but nab yourself some nail files (disposeable) while waiting in line or when you're in Wal-Mart some time, and just file them down.  They're oversized, not under, so at least you can sand them smaller.  Just be careful, take your time, etc...

The cardback thing would be easy enough to do if you wanted.  Folks at FFURG or in the customizing area here will help you I'm sure.  I'm not a carder myself, but I'm sure I can aim people at it if you do wind up needing any help at any point.

A nice call there Jeff for sure.

That isn't a bad deal...  I still am not wild about the ships or the figures really, but irregardless it's a good deal.  A far better deal than what you'd get at TRU buying the same stuff.

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: new custom fodder - bust ups?
« on: September 3, 2004, 08:15 PM »
I'm not familiar with them Dave, but if they are in-scale then I think if cast they could be useful fodder, sure.  At least useful head replacements, but whether they're in-scale or not is the question.  Can you get a comparison image up perhaps?

Like Han with VOTC Han side-by-side?

Really nothing is, unless there's something within the way it's marketed...  Like Marketing them as "who they are" from the Cantina would maybe be a loophole where they can claim it was them and nobody else?

1:6 scale companies get away with REALLY amazing likenesses of characters/actors though and market them as "nobody".  There was a "droid Hunter" figure out by a company not long ago that's so blatantly Harrison Ford's Bladerunner character that it's not even funny...  There's a Detective John McClane figure too marketed as something else and it's a stunning Bruce Willis headsculpt.

Others have managed, but it's in how they market it.  The Tonnika sisters are the Tonnika sisters...  I dunno how Hasbro would get around that I guess and the actresses probably have that cornered.

It's sort of a case of being careful what you wish for, 'cause if you keep saying "I don't care how it gets done, I want the full Jedi Council Screen Scene," boy are you gonna get it.

That's exactly why I nitpick...  If they ain't gonna do it right they need the "feedback" then.  And they didn't do it right on these... 

I'll never be one to say "I want it at all costs" because you're right Muftak.  They'll give  it to you...  Bend ya over and all.  It's like saying "I want Biker Scout 4-packs at all costs" when I don't like the Biker Scout figures available.  I want a 4-pack, but only if it's SA scouts that saw a carded release somewhere along the line...  :)  Otherwise I'm ok with having 3 of him (his 3 major variations).

Nice score to Gundam...  He should trot by and give some imrpessions some time.

I'm looking forward to Lando myself...  3PO bites.

I've yet to find Vader and Yoda BTW...  Still non-existant in my neck of the woods, and most stores now have almost bare pegs for VOTC.  The most I see is 5 figures at a time, and that's maybe 2 stores who got the 1st series in "late" (IE: Wal-Mart stores).
