Power of the Force 2 / JediDefender Image Database Retrospective
« on: March 28, 2005, 11:41 PM »

We here at JediDefender are pleased to bring you a brand new weekly feature - The JediDefender Image Database Retrospective!†

Each week, we'll bring you brand new, brilliant high-res photos of the older Kenner/Hasbro Power of the Force 2 figures.† You probably haven't really looked at your old figures since you bought them, but after you see our pics you'll probably want to dig them out for another look.†

Today, we kick it all off with the nine figures in the initial Power of the Force 2 assortment - Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi, C-3PO, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2-D2, and Stormtrooper!

Hope you enjoy these great high res photos!


Revenge of the Sith / Can You Break the Emperor's Code?
« on: March 28, 2005, 04:22 PM »
Yet another thing to complain about this weekend...† ::)

From Hasbro:

Can You Break the Emperor's Code?

The Emperor's Code is hidden on each of the 3 STAR WARS EPISODE III REVENGE OF THE SITH Exclusives available at Wal-Mart, Target, and Toys "R" Us stores.

Locate the hidden code on each toy, figure out what it means, enter the code into the vault website and you could win an Emperor's Code Breaker T-shirt.† But more importantly, figure out The Emperoro's Code and you'll reveal the evil plan to take over the galaxy...

Does Hasbro actually expect any kids to get their hands on these 3 exclusives from Wal-Mart, Target, and TRU?† Seriously?

What the hell?† Whoopee!† I'm a giant nerd identified by my Emperor's codebreaker T-shirt!† †:P

This totally rings of B-E-S-U-R-E-T-O-D-R-I-N-K-Y-O-U-R-O-V-A-L-T-I-N-E...† ::)

RotS Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter

No pictures yet, but it's another re-hash of the same ship with new colors...† :-\

The Prequel Trilogy / Official Site Episode 3 Make Over
« on: March 21, 2005, 09:46 PM »

Wow!  I love the new main page skins!  Vader and the Imperial March - ooooh.   :)  Gen Grievous and the Droid Army music is groovy too!

Lotsa new pictures in there hidden amongst the character bios and story and planets descriptions.

Definately worth checking out, especially the new backgrounds taken from the upcoming Movie theater posters and such...


For those that may have missed it on the main page last week, we've updated the JediDefender Image Database with some fantastic high-res loose and packaged photos of the Vintage Original Trilogy Collection figures.  Click on a figure below to access the Image Database Entry for that figure!

JD Sports Forum! / Steroids in Sports
« on: March 10, 2005, 11:53 AM »
OK, since this is bigger than just NFL or MLB or the Olympics, I thought I'd get us rolling on this topic in our new Sports Forum!

So, in recent 'Roids news, the US Congress is trying to get baseball players to testify on the subject:

MLB leaders plan to fight subpoenas

Do you think these guys should have to testify on the subject?

Is it in baseball's best interest to never find out if Bonds or McGwire or Sosa were on steroids?† †:-\

I don't know how I feel about it.† If the players did it, it kinda sucks, but then again there was no testing for it - who knows what the right answer is?


JD Sports Forum! / MLB 2005
« on: March 10, 2005, 10:40 AM »
Well, with the Grapefruit and Cactus leagues well underway, I guess it's time to abandon the old thread and start up a new one for 2005!

I've been watching a few games on ESPN and listening to the Twins on the AM radio when I get a chance, really starting to get into Baseball again.† I've got my tickets for the Dome Opener, should be another great year for the Twins - Santana and BRadke at the top of the rotation and a re-stocked infield.† Ready to go for that 4th-in-a-row AL Central title!

Aaaah, Baseball.† :)

I no longer miss the NHL.† †:P


Jocasta's Reading Room / SW - Labyrinth of Evil (Ep3 Precursor)
« on: March 7, 2005, 03:59 PM »
Anyone started reading this one yet?

I don't normally enjoy the made-up EU stuff, but I do tend to enjoy the filler "prequel" books they've done.† I liked the "Approaching Storm" which explained the events leading up to Episode 2, and I really liked the "Cloak of Deception", the Episode 1 prequel book.† Both did a great job of dropping you off at the starting point of the films.

Anyway, I had a chance to page through the book at B-n-N this weekend, and it loooked pretty good.† I have really enjoyed other SW books that Luceno has done (The NJO Agents of Chaos Duology as well as the aforementioned Cloak of Deception) and after previewing it in the store, I'm definately picking this one up.†

I couldn't bring myself to pay full price for a hard cover, so I passed on it at the store and just ordered it from today (can't beat 35% off cover price and free shipping since I picked up a few other books† ;)).

Anyone else considering reading this book?


Revenge of the Sith / Droid Tri-Fighter
« on: March 7, 2005, 11:49 AM »
With a bunch of people finding this wave of vehicles this weekend, I thought we better start up a thread for this vehicle too...

I managed to find this one this weekend and I love the design.  I like the little buzz droids too, should be cool to see them in action in the movie!

LEGO / TRU Exclusive "Imperial Inspection" LEGO Set
« on: March 1, 2005, 01:24 PM »

When the Official Site said "coming in March", they meant it!

The Toys R Us exclusive Imperial Inspection LEGO Set was spotted by yours truly in Minnesota today!

For $49.99 plus tax you get:†
the Imperial Shuttle, four all-new stormtroopers, two Imperial Guards, two Imperial Officers, the Emperor, and Darth Vader.

I like the new-look for the Stormies, very nice!† Too bad the rest of the set is re-hashed stuff...† :(


Revenge of the Sith / RotS - Collection 2 Figures
« on: February 24, 2005, 11:05 AM »
Hasbro has now posted "close up looks" at some of the collection 2 figures (looks like 11 of the first 12 to me, no Padme). Although not necessarily anything new, always nice to get some official pics of them too.



Revenge of the Sith / 2005 Red Metallic Darth Vader @ Target
« on: February 15, 2005, 12:54 AM »

Think we've seen the last of vac-metallized figures?† Think again.†

Hasbro wasn't lying when they said that the era of silver figures was over, but apparently they haven't given up on the vacuum-metallized exclusive figure concept just yet.†

The JediDefender News Room has dug up some dirt on a planned Target exclusive for 2005 - Red Metallic Darth Vader.† No details yet on the how or when, but you can expect to add this guy to your collection sometime in 2005!† Watch for more details on this figure as we get closer to April 2nd!
