Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Kit and Saesee...Pics
« on: August 5, 2003, 10:01 PM »
I love the Kit Fisto.  Great picture...  :)  All ripped and ready to tear someone a new one.  Kit could have his own cartoon series I think, a nd it'd be popular.  Subtitled but popular.

The SaeSae is "eh".  I'd liked to see a more neutral figure of him considering his Saga counterpart was a bit of a pre-posed crud figure like so many others.  I'm hoping he has good parts that lend well to customization though.

The Kit just rocks though...  THAT is a good EU figure. :)

Red 6's site is nice, but I think there's some liberties taken with actual names over what LFL deems their names to be.

Not that it matters honestly...  But I do believe there's some discrepency sometimes.

I'd be in army builider heaven if every figure that spoke got a figure...  Too bad no Fleet Troopers speak besides a grunt or groan. :(  I'd get a new one, and maybe a decent one.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Favorite Acessories?
« on: August 5, 2003, 08:19 PM »
Yes, I agree that Riekean is one of the superior looking figures and his accessory does rock.

CUstomizer heaven for me.  I want a "Fleet General" Riekean too after I get some Dodonna/Antilles parts to work with possibly.  

I just hope that Dodonna and Antilles are good NEUTRAL figures with maybe some nice articulation, and not pre-posed.  Just good accurate sculpts for each.

The sensor screens Riekean comes with are musts for any rebel base diorama (Yavin or Echo, or even Home One).

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: 50 BattleBots
« on: August 4, 2003, 04:52 PM »
Indeed, those battlebots have some great custom potential to them.  I napped a couple of them back when a store here (Family Toy Warehouse) was going outta business.  

Even make good accessories for figures with some of the parts.  Thanks for the tip, because now it looks like a trip out to TRU is on the agenda.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike
« on: August 4, 2003, 04:49 PM »
I wonder WHO you have to preorder with to get the bonus disc?  I'm not able to figure that out, or if it's just with Lucasarts themselves?

That's good news though...  A nice lil extra that actually is WORTH something. :)  Kinda like all the bonus material that came with Bounty Hunter, but for those who want to pre-order early.

Between that now preoder that's a MUST, and F-Zero's newest installment coming out soon, I'm gonna be uber-broke from the gaming budget. :)  Happily of course, especially with the reviews both games are getting.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Favorite Acessories?
« on: August 4, 2003, 04:38 PM »
2 come to mind immediatley...

Of course, the Bacta Tank Luke came with is awesome...  It's big, it's to-scale, it's accurate, it has a neat working action feature, it connects well with 2-1B and FX-7...

That's a great accessory, but...

I also like the Bespin Guard because he had so much!  Sure it's small, but he had binders, a blaster that fit in its holster and was really accurate to the film's blasters, a baton that fit on his belt, and even a removable cap.

That's a figure decked out in great, detailed, and plentiful accessories.

There's a thread over at Rebelscum right now wishing for more/better accessories with STar Wars figures, and wouldn't you know that a GREAT suggestion like that would be met by people saying "We get enough already", and that Hasbro can't do more for cost issues.

Do these people not look at other toy lines?  Do they get their checks from Hasbro?  What am I missing that suggested IMPROVEMENTS are cited as "impossible" or "unnecessary"?

What happened to people actually having some expectations?  Sad to see the hobby's potential held back by people.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Defender Wish Lists: Mos Eisley Cantina
« on: August 4, 2003, 04:32 PM »
1) Hem Dazon (Arcona)...  I've wanted a Hem for a long time, considering he's the first alien we see.  Able too sit down would be nice...  Glitterstim sticks would be extra nice. :)

2) Garouf Lafoe (Human Snitch)...  I disagree that he's representative of a generic human patron though.  He's pretty unique looking to me, so I put him aside.  Now if he had head variants or something, then I'd accept the generic thing. :)  He's cool because he's the one that tells the Sandtroopers about the dice job Obi just did on Evazan and Baba.

3) Drunk Jawas!!!!!  Yes, we need the drunk jawas outside the Cantina.  Of course they could just be relaxing, but I say they're too tipsy to go be a nuisance.

4) Dannik Jerriko...  I love this guy.  Puffin' on a bong, and really non-schelant about the fight that just happened at the bar.  He's a cool alien, and would make a great figure but  NEEDS the pipe...  It's his "thing" ya know?  :)  A blaster w/holster would be great too though.

5) Yerka Mig...  To me, this guy is a bit more generic, but still kinda unique.  Yerka's got that cool "Correllian" thing going on though, and that would be neat to see someone OTHER than Han sporting the leather coat look.  

6) Ellis Helrot...  I love the "Scream" alien, so I'd love to see him made...  Poseable enough to sit, and maybe hold a drink to his mouth.  He's definitely one of the better aliens in the cantina.

7) Dice Ibegon...  Who wouldn't want this?  I'd take it as an accessory though, considering it could be a single piece.

8 ) The Saurons...  2 figures, one mold though.  I think they could pull off the Kal Fas siblings as a 2-pack re-using some of the same parts...  That's just my opinion.

9) Bom Vindin...  I'm thinking this is the one-horned guy with 2 black eyes?  He's got a nifty studded tunic on, and would make yet another wonderful and unique addition to the Cantina.

10) Myo...  Is Myo the guy with one eye?  Definitely cool...  

11) (Since Dice can be an accessory I'm making an "11th" choice) The Gotal...  I cannot recall which name his his, but I'd take the Gotal in a heartbeat since I believe his species crops up elsewhere.

A lot of my choices revolve around the customizing potential of the figures...  To me, that's what's great about some of the figures we've gotten so far from the Cantina.  The Duros still is a great custom figure, and a great figure all around from Hasbro.  

It's a shame most of Hasbro's cantina figures are barely poseable, much less poseable enough to sit down and actually look like they're drinking.  They are some of their better figures from the modern line though if you ask me...  Even the Wave 1 and Wave 2 Cantina sets looked like they had some great figures in them (I know Wave 1's were an improvement over their previous versions by far).

Paul rocks!

He's a cool guy I've known for a time from the FFURG.com customizing list-server, and his time at Rebelscum.com

This guy is even willing to just ship me those ugly little tanks that came in the Hoth accessory set because he's just cool like that. :)

Dont' ask what they're for...  I'm just strange about liking them.

So welcome over here Paul...  I'm not always around because my time's become more and more rare these days, but hopefully we can get some good conversations going over in the classic trilogy area...  

I believe Paul to be a SW military nut somewhat like myself. ;)

Welcome, and thanks for joining up at JD.com which IS the place to be.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Death Star Survivors?
« on: July 31, 2003, 02:37 AM »
hehe, that's funny...

If you played the level in Force Commander where you wipe out the remnant rebel forces, and picked up Col. Veers' downed shuttle, you'd dig the idea that more people could've escaped...

And I agree, the # of TIE's left out there would leave some pilots to survive possibly as well, and then some who knew of the imminent destruction may have hauled butt off in a shuttle (And the idea of rescue shuttles for pilots is a good idea too, for more survivors).

Could've been in the 100's even, for survivors...

FC has some very "realistic" combat engagements that make for itneresting questions on the movies I think.  That's why I brought this topic up some time ago.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Endor Troopers dissapearing?
« on: July 31, 2003, 02:34 AM »
Paul, dude, if you can get captures from the film and send them out, you are THE man for customizing...

I may be nagging you severely for help in the near future, haha.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Favorites
« on: July 31, 2003, 02:32 AM »
For the trilogy...

Vehicle:  AT-AT...  Big, bad@$$ tank of the Empire...  Not indestructable, but can dominate a battlefield...  Lots of possibilities to the specifics.

Quote:  "Never Tell Me The Odds"

Scene:  Hoth Battle or Endor Space Battle

Character: Bossk or Grand Moff Tarkin...  Both rock, both get da ladies.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Screen Scenes
« on: July 31, 2003, 02:29 AM »
The Jedi set looks like some damn fine custom fodder. :)

Can't wait to start filling out the Jedi ranks...

Ball/Sockets rock, I wish Hasbro made these more a standard on figures (knees, elbows, and neck).  You'd have an immense ammount of poseability then.

Adam's a guy who has helped me in the past without even asking for anything in return (No, not even PAYMENT!)

Adam was giving me his extra Fact Files as they came in for a while, and if it weren't for him I wouldn't have any of these dandy little resources.

I cannot thank him enough for that sheer generosity he showed.  Yet another asset to the collecting community, and I will always owe him for the help. :)
