Yeah, I really feel like the CR90's and the Bail tease are just to throw people off.  I'm not sure Fulcrum is Ahsoka...  And I wonder what the Fulcrum name's significance is and if it plays into who the character ultimately is, but either way I'm really reluctant to say it's Bail (or Leia, by default)...  I'm definitely leaning towards it being something more important and less obvious.

And if EU's any indication, there's an abundance of Corellian Corvettes and a myriad of variants of them, all around the galaxy, and in play by both sides and everyone in between...  I've gotta say though that it's one of the few aspects of the show to actually build a little interest.  Who is Fulcrum?  Who knows.  The Clone Wars base makes one think it's someone who had ties to the era though, as well...  and the military aspect of the war.

I'm wondering now...  Will other things turn up, from that era?  What about the Polis Massaan and their weird moon base?  I'd dig seeing them turn up as a founding species of the Alliance.

The film could be all kinds of ass and piss out the ass, but it'd still have 2 damn fine movie trailers going for it.

Gundam is one of the most complex lines of things I've ever seen.  I have no idea how that universe breaks down but it seems like you need an encyclopedia to keep track of it.  There are some amazing vids for them on Youtube though.  I've enjoyed just watching those and how people customize them.

Yeah I'm running out of $ regularly, or alloy, whatever, to upgrade things because I'm now being attacked daily it seems.  Why?  No clue.  Never used to happen but maybe once a week.  That alone will make me bore with this, and I'll quit.

Like I said, I've nabbed screen grabs of some vehicles for customizing (maybe) purposes, and the droid.  I'd love to build the droid for poops and giggles.

But the game?  It's pretty meh.

1:18 scale Falcon?  In Die-cast?  I'm game.

I'll reinforce my upper floor of the house and build barn doors this Summer so I can get it inside and not have the structure collapse!  I can't wait!  :D

Part of me feels the Corellian Corvette was something to throw us off...  Just a suspicion.  Then again I could see the show not really being that clever, too, and just making it Bail.

I watch Rebels, but I have to say I've not been impressed.  Top to bottom, it's much more boring than Clone Wars was.  I tune in almost more to see the background and vehicles than the story.   :-X

Yeah, Vader for the Empire...

The Empire also now has the AT-DP Walker as a vehicle option, and a Jump Jet Trooper for the barracks.

I forget the trooper the Alliance got, but I saw they got an AT-TE (ugh, again they **** the bed and give us just recycled crap from The Clone Wars, and on top of it a design the Empire is still employing come ANH).

The game is...  tedious.  At this point it's wearing out its welcome with me.  I was close to a Level 7 HQ, but it's a highly repetitive game.  They changed some game play as well, but for the most part I don't think the game's dynamics have (or can?) change enough to make it terribly interesting.

At this stage of things, I'm playing more to see new vehicles like the Incinerator or the AT-MP.  Otherwise, it's all meh.

Plus no matter your base, pretty much anyone of a higher level can overtake your base and win at least 2 medals...  So what's the point then, if essentially you cannot win?

Power of the Jedi / Re: Best POTJ Fig?
« on: December 9, 2014, 06:53 PM »
I concur...  FX-7 is probably my top pick.  All the articulated arms, the hyper detail (down to the red spatters, whatever they may be, on the one arm), definitely makes it a figure to be reckoned with.  There aren't many that compare, and it's the type of figure that I don't look at and think, "Boy I wish they'd update FX-7!".

I can't say that about ANY figure otherwise.

Every other figure in POTJ could stand to use a modern update...  Some it's just a matter of better articulation, but every single one could be updated for sure...  Hell, some that WERE updated could stand another update, actually.

Test Shots, I'd guess...  Not a prototype, but not just something that didn't get painted.  I say that only because the plastic coloring on some of the parts there isn't correct.  These get cranked out in some funky colors.

We posted a story a while back showing test shots of the Saga Cloud Car and Snowspeeder that were like neon green and whatnot.  They're cool IMO.

Merl?  Meryl?  I can't spell it.  I'd like to see her though.  She'd add acting cred.

Nix that, I was pronouncing it in Rick Voice, like he pronounces Carl's name. :)

If anyone, anywhere, sees an Amanaman staff for an ok price, hit me up...  I'd appreciate it.  :-\

I think she committed to, uh, committing, when Dawn asked for the guy back...  At that point I think she was only contemplating it, and maybe grabbed the forceps for simply a weapon, in case...  Once Dawn changed things and demanded that guy back, Beth said F it because things weren't going to be good.

I don't think the goal of the forceps was initially to stab Dawn though...  Just so she had something because she was going into it unarmed.  If anything I think she felt bad for Dawn, to a degree, and was trying to reason with her that this is life and it's depressing, and you have to deal with it.

Dawn kind of betrays Beth in a way.  Takes a liberty and a last parting shot, by asking for Beth's friend back as compensation for losing her "ward".  She'd professed all along that the wards were simply a means to an end for her to keep control, while keeping people safer than being out on the street...  Beth maybe bought into that to some degree, but obviously still felt it was wrong and that Dawn was just doing it to keep the peace...  Obviously Dawn wasn't.  She was just another POS like the Governor, or the Termites, or whatever.  Just another person taking advantage of the world as it is rather than facing it for what it is.

Beth's last straw mentally was knowing her friend was going to probably not make it out of there alive.  She snaps, she stabs Dawn and gets shot in the process, etc., etc.  It was her, "**** it" moment.

That's just how I see it though...  no clue if that's how it's intended because I agree it's not explained terribly well.  I think it's subtle, at best.


Pittsburgh's Steel City Con ( returns to the Monreoville Convention Center just East of downtown Pittsburgh, on THIS weekend, December 5th, 6th, and 7th.  Attending?  Peter Mayhew is!  And the Star Trek DS9/TNG guests keep rolling in too.

I'm hoping to see some locals and some not-so-locals as always.  :)  Hope some of you guys can make the trip sometime.  The December show is always the biggest and a nice time of year to visit the city in general if you wanted to.
