Open em up.  :)

Yes that is Michael Fright.

And actually there's an update to the story...  The council's given that the go-ahead so long as he cuts that F'n hair already.  Jersey is tired of the stereotypes. 

BTW I believe he actually does have the mullet cut, if he was honest last time I ran into him.

His first SC is in scale with the figures, more or less, so I'm just baffled by this next attempt.

He's a different guy...

Juggernaught's were the early concept sketches of the AT-AT for ESB.  Had 8 wheels, was about the same height (estimating that), and the EU's taken the Juggernaught and used it in some various stories as just a different ground vehicle the Empire employs.

I think it's an armored convoy type vehicle in EU terms, more than an attack vehicle or troop transport.

The film juggernaught looks somewhat changed from the EU one possibly...  May not even be the same vehicle in Star Wars terms, just similar.

I'd take a BG-J38 Matt, but I gotta go with Scott on wanting CZ-3 more.

I'd probably take BG-J38 over R5-D4 right now though...  Like if it was up to one or the other, and the one not picked never got made.  I say that only because making an R5's a custom many try because the parts are there, the figure's just not together.  With BG-J38 yo're looking at sculpting new stuff, and that I'm not swift with.  Definitely not from scratch.

Do you guys' Target stores have that many Stormtroopers that they will be there at clearance time?

If so, remember your less fortunate friends *hint hint hint*  ;D

I haven't seen a Stormtrooper in a while at a store....

Well, I take that back, I found one a couple weeks ago and bought it since I had a good day at school that day (figured I'd blow the $10 as a gift to myself).

I've found 2 at stores only.  The rest of my little squd I've traded for.  :(  They look great together though...  I love decking them out with some of the other stormie weapons too.  They look good...  Like a real support team.  I have an impy officer head swap with them right now too.  Damn great figures!

Anyway, if you guys with tons of these find them cheap and get extras, by all means hit me up because I need more to satiate this obsession.

My West Coast Connection here's helpin' me some.  :)  I gotta have more though!

My list is in no particular order, and based on my favorite characters as well as trying to maintain a mix of obscure aliens, army building fodder, and needed resculpts.

1)  Hermi Odle...  I listed him #1 because he's probably the #1 alien figure I want made.  I want him to come with apples too.  Does anyone else want the apple basket with him?  I just find this fecal-looking feind to be all the more amusing when he's eating apples.  I dunno.

2) Grand Moff Tarkin Resculpt...  While Bib Fortuna and R5-D4 were in the running, I simply don't care for the Bib character that much and R5-D4 I can make myself if i tried, so I'm voting GM Tarkin as the most needed resculpt.  GOOD articulation for neutral poses and those in moments of contemplation. 

3)  Romba/Warok...  If there's one thing Endor needs, it's more Ewoks...  Namely warriors.  Since I feel that painting up a chief Chirpa would make me happy for his figure, then I want Romba/Warok in a warrior 2-pack.  If Hasbro were wise they'd articulate them as well as Teebo and re-release them painted as other warriors (generic) with different weapons and/or hoods.  People may hate Ewoks, but I think they'd sell to the army building crowd to more than off-set any anti-ewok bias.

4)  General Veers...  Removable armor, removable helmet, removable kepi hat, remvable belt/holster, and a holo Vader.  This Veers should be the ultimate Imperial Officer in sculpt, accessories, and I think he should have some good articulation too.  Go all out on this one!  Finally do one of the only Officers Vader didn't kill someactual Justice Hasbro!

5)  Bom Vimdin...  This is THE Cantina alien that I want now that Dannik Jerricho is made.  I like Hem Dazon too, but Bom's a freakish design I've always liked.  Plus his studded tunic thing is freaky too.  Make him as nice as the Cantina wave guys and I'm happy as a clam.

6)  Hem Dazon...  I pick Hem Dazon because he's such an iconic alien.  One of the best designs, the first one you see in the entire sequence, and even if he wasn't so blatantly camera hogging I think he'd still be a memorable and popular choice.  Like Bom, I think Hem should be just as nice as all the Cantina wave figures coming out.

7) Luke Endor...  Soft goods poncho, removable helmet, softgoods (removable) vest underneath, removable belt (with saber hilt that hooks to it).  This should be the ultimate Endor Luke, no holds barred.  Super Articulated to the max.  Perfection for Luke Skywalker.

8 ) Sgt. Doallyn...  If the uniforms are similar enough, I vote for a running change where half are in the white skiff duds and half in the black palace duds.  Articulated as nicely as the Cantina wave...  If Hasbro wanted to get funky, a removable helmet with EU accurate likeness underneath would be sorta neat.  This guy's behind Hermi as one of my favorite Palace freaks.  His voice is too funny, and he got punked...  twice!

9)  CZ-3...  Gotta have one droid, and since I do, I'm picking CZ-3.  The clown droid's been overlooked far too long.  He's so blatantly noticeable all over Tatooine that you really just have to have one in figure form already.  If they included a cheap molded droid accessory with him like Treadwell that came with Beru, that would rock.  Like maybe doing the Mining droid as a 1 or 2 piece accessory to pack in with him.  Seems simple enough to me!

10) Bren Derlin...  As much as I was torn between Torryn Far or Cliff here, I went with Cliff.  I wanted an army builder of sorts on the list, and as a somewhat generic officer for Hoth I decided Bren was best.  Super Articulation is warranted since the body would be hot customizing fodder...  I'd dig a removable hat/goggles too, and a working holster w/blaster pistol for him.  It'd be neat having the full Cliff Claven headsculpt for customizing him in a regular Fleet Uniform, and it would make the figure just a great customizing piece, army builder, and a good figure that many seem to want.

Amen Paul.

Han never was all "action posed" like that in the film in that outfit, and short of sticking them on Taun-Tauns, the Hoth Han sucks. 

The arms are great, but he really needed a neutral pose, no action feature, and just good articulation.

I'd have liked a cloth hood and removable hat, but that's me.  It's doable.  :)

They're still crappy films I think, whether or not the article's real.

I'm tired of anything that has to do with jumping sideways while firing guns and slow motion bullets.

Have a good one Lando!

I'm sorta disappointed in the findings in this one.

Endor Leia and Han not even in the top 10!?  No SA Scout? 

Yet Jerjerrod, one of the most non-descript officers in the trilogy, gets in?  Hmmm  You guys have warped senses of priority.  :)

Hey I don't blame you at all Scott.

I'd be the last person to claim anyone's overreacting or something...  It sucks.  I'd probably be irate if it were on a figure I maybe was more interested in...  Not that I'm NOT interested in Dannik, but I guess the background guys get less excitement from me... 

This were an army builder though and I'd be pissed.

But I'm not happy with it either.  It's ugly, it's unnecessary, and the EU concept behind it wasn't good in the first place which is really irritating.  I think that Hasbro THOUGHT they were doing the right thing...  They weren't, but maybe they thought they were doing us a favor on this one?

Like they were at the board room and one guy stood up and said "hey, this Dannik guy has this weird face pouch with sucker things, let's make that on him and make it removable".  Everyone cheered because they thought it'd be something the weirdoes like us would like, but little did they know that the gaping holes would irritate.

If it were an articulation point that made it slightly less aesthetically pleasing, I'm cool with that.  Articulation is a feature/function any action figure should have IMO.  The big pores on his noggin' are ugly though, and just silly.

I agree...  I'm just not as upset I guess, but I agree.  It's stupid, and was overkill on Hasbro's part.

I'm maybe just happy to get a Dannik figure at all, and maybe the ease of filling the holes in is what makes me think "eh" about it.  I agree though, it's up there in stupidity.  They did ruin an otherwise (near) perfect figure.

Dumb of them...  No doubt.

I could do it... 

You see, doing it for Matt would be easy.  Doing it for myself though...  I'd want to get a 2nd Dannik, pop the head, fill the holes, mold it, cast it in proper color(s) and then paint it all up...

So yeah, I doubt it'd happen in MY style, but if you want the holes filled with something, Matt, and then them painted over...  That's simple.

BTW I'd fill them with 2-part epoxy or something.  Devcon plastic welder woudl be better I think...  More durable, more plastic-like. 

Personally, I'm likely just gonna leave my Dannik alone...  It's **** looking, but I'm happy just to get him and the EU feature's "eh" to me.  Kinda neat, but I'll just deal with the holes...  It's the figures only real drawback though to me...  Maybe the elbows too, but the face is the only thing that bugs me.

I'd say tonight was Pittsburgh's sloppiest performance, aside from Ben's drive at the end to set up the field goal.  By the way, everyone on that team owes Reed a drink for putting it on target.

Anyway, they're not healthy, but nonetheless the offensive and defensive lines both played like shazbot, and the running game was stifled...  I hated the commentary, and I felt the cameramen did a piss poor job tonight, but I'll agree with the commentators that Bettis should've been doing MOST of the running with Staley regaining his legs in a supporting role...  Not the other way around.

An ugly game, even if a win, and generally poorly played.  I think if this is the effort put forth on the remainder of the schedule, the Steelers won't look too hot going into the playoffs.
