Revenge of the Sith / Re: Bonus Clone Troopers!
« on: May 6, 2005, 12:00 PM »
Wow, it's been several days and still no word on whether these will be available beyond Khol's. Also, why would Khol's be able to get something first?

This is quite interesting.

All the info I have heard thus far from Hasbro indicates that these will only be able at Kohl's (therefore Kohl's exclusives).

So, I've heard from a few Target people and they all seem to confirm that in some way, shape, form, or another Target has been asked to return their stock of these to Hasbro. 

Some Targets were told to just "destroy" them instead of the cost of shiping them back to Hasbro.   :o

Other Targets seem to be saying "who cares" and selling what they have left.  I wonder what the heck is going on with these?

Did Hasbro recall them because they don't fit the figures?  Because they are too close to an existing case design?  Because they are Hasbro and they make strange decisions once in a while?

Episode 1 / Re: Hardest Episode 1 figure to find?
« on: May 6, 2005, 10:44 AM »
My "hardest to find" Episode 1 Figure was the stupid "Swimming Jar-Jar".  I think he was 1-per-case in that box and I kept just missing him.   :-\

I'd find Soft Goods Qui-Gon and Damaged Droideka, but that dang Gungan eluded me to the very end.  I lucked out and stumbled into a cache of the HTF Collection 2 and 3 figures (Sio, Ascention Maidala, Pit Droids, R2-B1, TC-14), but that stupid "swimming JarJar" took a while.

The worst part is I was stressing over not having a JarJar figure...  ::)

Other Collectibles / Re: Attakus Dioramas... 3.75" Scale?
« on: May 6, 2005, 09:55 AM »
I don't even want to think about it...  :-\

They are going to be expensive and probably awesome, thus creating a dilemma for me on whether or not to buy them.   :(

Anyway, there's a sneak peek of the DS set at the Attakus site:

Another easy deal with Mike.

He bought a C3 Vader from me and was quick with the cash for I could afford to eat my hamburger tonight.   ;)

Another good deal with Old Cocky. 

He gave me some money for some C3 loot and then mocked the small-ness of the Hasbro poster I gave him.

Another A+ Deal with one of the finest.

Feedback / Nathan's (pka Valin Kenobi) feedback

Nathan bought a pile of loose figures from me in a sale/trade sort of deal for a couple of Target Clones I'll feed to a needy Canadian.

No worries when trading with Nathan! A+ in my book.   ;)

Thanks again Rod!

Second deal with Jim went as smooth as the first!

He was quick to respond to my PMs and quick to get me my $$$.   ;)

Thanks again, Jim!  Your figures went out in the mail today!

Posted in another topic the 5 pack's DPCI is 087-06-1490, however, that DPCI is attached to the Target exclusive SA Clone Trooper. So unless they assigned a different DPCI to the 5 pack it appears that there won't be a 5 pack released at this time.

The Clone's DPCI is 087-06-1489.

I've been checking the 087-06-1490 DPCI and it has been coming up as the $9.99 collector cases unless somehting changed in the last 2 days.   :-\

Hey Hasbro! / Please Give Us An AT-TE
« on: May 5, 2005, 12:24 PM »
Dear Hasbro,

Please make us a 3.75" action figure scale AT-TE.

We are in desperate need of one so that our Republic Forces have a wicked vehicle to blast away at the Separatists. With it, we could recreate the awesome battles of Revenge of the Sith.

Go ahead and pack it full of cool play features if you must (for the kids), but really do it up right.  Thank you.

Your Pal,
Jeff

Has anyone seen these cases in stores lately?  I've been checking the MN Targets using the DPCI and I haven't seen hide-nor-hair of these cases.   :-\

Maybe it's just a coincidence, but the Hasbro news item and all information on the Target Cases has been removed from the website:

http://hasbro.com/starwars/pl/page.news/newsID.7A140BE5-D56F-E112-431048FE5DB47B3E/default.cfm

Curious... maybe the rumors that these were recalled by Hasbro are true?

Gentle Giant / Re: Gentle Giant Busts
« on: May 5, 2005, 10:07 AM »
My speculation:

SDCC = AOTC 3PO

Oooh... that's a good guess.

I was also thinking they'd stick with variants, so during a conversation yesterday we came up with a few possibilities:

Han Solo w/Yavin Medal
Red/Lava/Chrome Vader (based on the new Vader)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS Nemoidian Soldier
« on: May 4, 2005, 11:35 PM »
Can you post any pics Jeff?  Or want to trade it to me for a Clone or something?   :)

Here's the pose I have mine in:



Nice and neutral. 

On the legs, he has swivel ankle joints, but no knee joints.   ::)

On the arms, he does have ball-jointed shoulders, but he has only cut-joints ont he arms.  His gun has a goofy handle that he can't really hold.  Like I said, I didn't really like any other poses I could get him in where he was holding his rocket launcher.

He looks really nice just standing there though...  :D
