Saga '02-'04 / Re: Star Destroyer wave question?
« on: November 7, 2003, 04:47 PM »
My choices would go like this:

-General Maxmillian Veers:  Neutral sculpt, with good to decent articulation...  I think the removable armor is completely possible considering the Clone Pilot's removable armor.  The extra bulk of the officer's armor would help that for how it looks over the officer's tunic...  And of course, removable helmet and hat are possible so that'd be cool.  If they could incorporate the warbelt as well, even if it's connected to the armor piece, that would also rock.

-Imperial Naval Trooper:  Just an ultra articulated "Death Star Trooper" with removable helmet...  Working holster with the proper blaster pistol would be nice too.  Considering these guys are dealt the crappy duty of dragging the bodies away that Vader creates, it'd make a good Star Destroyer Wave figure...  They're there afterall.

-Imperial Crewman/Technician:  Indeed, a needed figure.  Reuse the POTJ sculpt, give it new arms (Gloveless, and with the silver cylinders in the shoulder sleeves), and a new headsculpt (Multiple sculpts would rock).  A removable headset would be nice too...  Articulated legs, even if they used the TIE Pilot pack-in legs, and a computer console/chair would ROCK this figure.  Lots of reused parts even with only new arms/head and accessories...  Not too shabby I think.

-New Bossk:  Yes, I'll take heat for this but I like Bossk...  Why?  Because Trandoshans get ALLLLLL da ladies.  I'd take a new Bossk then...  Better sculpt, and better articulation...  Wookie pelt accessory maybe.  ;D  Ok, yeah, none of the rest of you want this, but I do.  I'm allowed dreams. :)

I'd personally rather they saved the Stormtrooper for a Death Star wave perhaps or something else (Endor wave?)...  Hell, maybe even an Imperial forces wave of ultra articulated Troopers...  Snow, Scout, Stormie, and AT-ST (Imperial Army) troops?  :)  Now tell me THAT wave wouldn't sell over and over and over?

I've got it divided up like this:

-Here's my home...  I visit this site first every day, and visit our forums the most often I think.

-Scum's where I've spent the most time...  I don't like a lot of the turns it has taken, and I think there's a LOT of people there in need of banning while others are cited for the smallest things and "threatened" with banning and shouldn't be.  It basically has problems, but it has traffic and the better customizing forum (FFURG's adopted one so I have to travel there a bit anyway).  I like the conversation with the GOOD people there though, so I go to it a bit.

-Then gets my attention because of who's there more than the content...  I like Mike, I like Apok, etc., and the site's a lot of the original people I got to know in the online collectng community because of CSW's days.  The conversation's good when it comes, so I hop in there too.

Everyone has something good...  And not a slite at RS, but only rebelscum has a lot "bad" going on there...  I think it's partly the site, but not completely, and I still like going there.  But there are a few names I can think of that have been openly warned but still make their "remarks" and are members there.  Someday maybe they'll be gone though...  RS would run a LOT smoother then.

Yeah, i'd pay $10 for a figure with 14+ points of articulation (With heavy use of the ball/socket joint) and TONS of accessories (or even interchangeable limbs/hands/heads where warranted) on figures.

Reissuing Commtech Han over and over just don't cut it though...

Man, I'm thankful my family hates people enough that none of them would ever remarry...  Sounds like too much of a hastle.

Happy B-Day and hope you got some good stuff Adam...  You definitely deserve it with all the work you put into the collecting community.

Eh, ya go in the water you take the risk...  I wish her the best of luck and that she hadn't lost a limb but such is life...

I dig those shark photos though!  :)  

I've heard so many people whining in the last couple of days since that incident that all sharks should be killed though, and that's just such a disturbing mentality...  My friend Eric's that way, and was one of the anti-shark people.  So was Howard Stern on Monday morning...   ::)

BTW I still think the Hoth Han's a craptastic figure no matter what color his coat is. :)

And ok, now I see what you guys meant about R-3PO...  I thought you didn't know he was at Hoth, but I should've known better...

That is a sweeeeet protocol droid, and indeed buying a handful may be worth it.  Best proto droid sculpt ever I think.

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.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: New Hoth Rebel... :(
« on: October 30, 2003, 10:32 PM »
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?
