Hey Hasbro! / Re: Your Battle Pack Ideas?

My Ultimate Battle Pack Idea is no more Ultimate Battle Packs.  They're too big.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 2008 Target Order 66 2-Packs

Someone at 'Scum claims they got someone at Target to pull them out case.

That's very possible - is he also on the West Coast?  Should be hitting your stores first, as usual.   :P

Changed mine.  He went from a redeemable baddie in the OT to more of a tragically misguided figure in the prequels. You also get a feel for how set up he was by the Emperor - he didn't just decide to be a bad guy, he was heavily pushed in that direction by Palpy.  When I see the OT now, I feel more pity for him than anything else.

The Original Trilogy / Re: TIE FIGHTERS
« on: March 26, 2008, 06:37 PM »
Since Tie's don't have hyperspace capability are there perhaps hyperspace rings for them?, or would they be hyperspace squares  :P 

Just thinking that maybe in a circumstance instead of some sort of capital ship carrying a load of TIE's would it be possible for maybe a 1/2 sqaud to fly in some how for whatever reason, maybe just to relieve another group of TIE's/ replacements.

Your thoughts?

I think that by the OT and beyond, there were enough carrier ships to carry squadrons of TIEs wherever they needed to go.  With no sheilds as well, it makes more sense to send a larger vessel on a mission carrying several ties than sending multiple ties via external hyperdrive fittings.  Plus you have the added fire support of a larger ship, it can refuel the TIEs, etc.  The Empire is also largely based on intimidation, so their strategy was likely to send an enormous force somewhere to overwhelm the enemy and get them to surrender, rather than sending out one or two fighters on various missions. 

I guess they must have gotten better at fitting smaller ships with hyper-drives as well, so for missions involving individual fighters, you'd probably use something slightly larger and far more durable Post ROTS.  The Xwings and Ywings have them and they're not that much bigger than Xwings.  Plus the Empire has added resources, so you'd think they could develop new tech at least as fast as the rebels.

The Legacy Collection / Re: The Return of Saga Legends

I'd give my left nut if they'd just do more Darth Vader figures.  Please please please just make all of the new Legends figs versions of Darth Vader throughout the years.  That way I don't have to buy any of them.

SA Han Solo (w/MF tools, & hand-cuffs)

It'd be cooler if it were "bad ass" Mace Windu w/ MF lightsaber, cloak, detachable hand.  ;)
...but, yeah, I got what you meant.

You are becomming more of a gang banger every day my friend...  :o

Or for a sure fire hit, just make this guy!

Um...are we talking about JEDI figures as in the character must have Jedi powers or are we talking about figures from RETURN OF THE JEDI, which would encompass anyone from, but limited to that movie?  Based on the original post, I was under the assumption that this was limited the Jedi characters.

Either way, Han Bespin and Ice Cream Social Guy don't make the cut.  ;)

my dream wave should include 8 figures:

jocasta nu

Your dream wave includes the librarian?   ???

Nice find Brian!
Personally, I do not get the appeal of PT characters on vintage style cards if they do in fact go that route down the road. Maybe I am a purest to this particular line but Vintage style releases should remain with vintage characters only. Just my opinion.

If they return to a vintage line, I agree - just redo vintage figs.  Personally, I think the quality of the basic figs has gone up the last few years, so I'd be fine with them just releasing new figs in these lines and saving a few bucks.   ;)

well my most wanted jedi has to be K`kruhk

Tesar Sabatine, Barabel from the NJO series.  Did you like Coleman Trebor?  You'll love this guy.

I'd much rather read the IDW comics series which continues to be compelling and entertaining, but again, that is probably just me.

I'm with you on the IDW series.  These are great books.  My only struggle with them is figuring out the timelines between on going mini series and the one-shots.  :-\

I can call this my dream wave since we'll likely never see anything close to most of these...

- Super Articulated Interchangeable Heads Rebel Fleet Trooper and/or Hoth Rebel Soldier (with accurate uniform)
- Super Articulated Interchangeable Heads RImperial Officer
- SA Boba Fett with jetpack or wrist firing projectile (not a huge 2 inch projectile)
- Alema Rar (New Jedi Order)
- SA Biker Scout with Removeable Helmet, lift up face plate, and snap on armor
- Tesar Sabatine (Barabel Jedi from New Jedi Order Books)
- Jaina Solo (we will see this in some form one day)
- Ganner Rhysode's Last Stand against the Vong (New Jedi Order)

I think I'm already at eight, but would also love to see a Voxyn, also from New Jedi Order!

The Legacy Collection / Re: 2008 Evolutions Sets
« on: March 25, 2008, 12:50 PM »
I have extra of all the sets except the Sith, so if anyone needs the TFU, Jedi Legacy, or Fett Legacy sets, I'd be willing to trade them or sell for cost + shipping.  ;)

How about this one...

If you use Chris' kids...and switch...with your apartment neighbor, or dorm-mate, it isn't going to should hit him because he might listen ...and you want peace and quiet. That would get your other neighbors upset with you and the police knocking on your door.
