All new look.  I for one am glad they ditched the Clone Wars look as it was a bit played out now...

Thought I'd post this here since they are officially OTC now...

Check out the pictures from the front page!

Well, wave 2 of the cup sets is up for sale on eBay, so I guess that means that the odds are now in favor of these showing up at retail.

Granted, we all remember the Saga Cantina sets, but the future looks bright for these three cup sets!

Ah, public shaming.  What a great punishment.

Darn mail-stealers!  When will they realize that is isn't a victimless crime...  :'(

Have you guys hear about this?

I heard on the radio today that Brosnan is out as Bond and Orlando Bloom will be his replacement in a prequel-Era Bond movie?!?

Ponderances?

Star Wars Action Figures / Jeff's Custom Figures - Updated 6/7
« on: July 28, 2004, 06:26 PM »
Well,

I finally got off my lazy butt and decided to take some pictures of my 150+ custom figures to share with you guys.

First Up -

Baniss Keeg:
NEW PIC COMING SOON

My recipe is very similar to some of the FFURG ones I've seen, but not quite the same:
Duros - head, hands, and boots.
FF BSH Helmet Luke - Torso, legs, arms
lotsa painting

I really like the way he turned out!  I think he is my favorite custom figure.   :)

Original Trilogy Collection / Hasbro's SDCC Q&A Session
« on: July 23, 2004, 12:16 PM »
Well,

Today's the day for the Hasbro Q&A...

11:30 to 12:30 (in Room 9) - Hasbro will host a Star Wars presentation with a Q&A session.

Think anything good will come out of it?  Anything more yet to be revealed?  Will we find out what's to come after OTC?  Will some putz waste Hasbro's time with a dumb question like: Is it hard to make figures?

I'll start the specululation and say that I hope we get some solid confirmation of the Coruscant wave and plans for the Oct04-Apr05 time frame.  Will there be new stuff or just nothing until the sneak preview stuff?  I'd also like to hear if there are any plans for more vOTC figures...

Just a few more hours until we find out I guess.

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Topless vOTC Luke
« on: July 22, 2004, 04:01 PM »
Something I haven't seen anywhere else yet, but Scum just put up a nice clear picture of shirtless vOTC Luke.

Luke - Will Dance for Cash

Thought all you other customizers out there might like to see what he looks like under there... not quite what I had hoped.   :-\

Original Trilogy Collection / TRU Naboo 4-pack
« on: July 21, 2004, 10:36 PM »
Info coming in from Comic-Con...

Looks like this set will include a kit-bashed Kaduu w/feathery saddle, kitbashed articulated knees Tarpals, Gungan warrior with minor paint changes, PotJ Security Battle Droid in neutral color, and Naboo Royal Guard with minor paint deco changes!

I think I'll have to grab this one for the new Kaduu w/Tarpals and the army-building figures that it offers... repacks I finally agree with!

Original Trilogy Collection / Coruscant Wave
« on: July 20, 2004, 04:58 PM »
Well,

I thought I'd start a thread here in hopes of seeing these guys at SDCC this week...

The GH Swami and a few others have forseen that the first wave after the 38 OTC repacks will be the Coruscant wave: Pablo Jill (Jedi), Sly Moore (Palpy's Aide), and Senator Yarua (Wookiee Senator).

I think that, perhaps, the forthcoming Coruscant wave may have accidently been confirmed, as reports are coming in that the latest issue of the SW Insider has this to say:

"since we never saw Sly's hands in Episode II, Hasbro was set to give her birdlike talons in an exercise of creative license. However, this was nicked just in case her hands are visible in Episode III."

Hmmm...

Let's hope we find out more from SDCC!

Original Trilogy Collection / OTC Wal-Mart Exclusive Carry Cases
« on: July 13, 2004, 10:30 AM »
Seems like it.

Hasbro announced today that they'll be showing off Wal-Mart exclusive C-3PO and Darth Vader carry cases at this year's SDCC booth.

Yea!   More re-hashed goodness!  ::)

Once upon a time, the GH Seer, The Swami, predicted these may come with a figure as well, but no official confirmation on that.

Anyone gonna actually buy these?  

Not me... unless they do have pack-ins which are new, but somehow I highly doubt that.  :(

JD Sports Forum! / GI Joe and Baseball
« on: July 1, 2004, 10:04 AM »
Saw this in the paper this morning and wondered what you guys and gals thought...

Twins' G.I. Joe giveaway criticized

Basically, The Minnesota Twins will be giving away an exclusive GI Joe action figure (Duke) painted up with the Team's colors.  These will be given to the first 5000 kids (13 and under) who attend a game this weekend.



It was supposed to be a patriotic move for the 4th of July, GI Joe, Apple Pie and Baseball, but all the crazies have come out of the wood-work saying that GI Joe has no place at the ballpark.

Are the Minnesota Twins sponsoring a war-drive by giving these away to kids?  Or were the Twins just trynig to give away a cool TOY to kids to celebrate the 4th of July?

I am pretty sure that the Twins had NO intention to recruit for the military OR support any particular War with this give-away.  I think they were just trying to give a cool patriotic toy to kids and it seems to be back-firing in their face.  I don't really think that having a GI Joe as a kid will automatically make you a war monger as some of these people seem to think.

Anyone else have thoughts?  Does GI Joe belong at the ballpark or is it an atrocity?

Jeff
