Oh dear, we have the same questions going on in three different threads, mostly my bad.  There's fx questions in the official MR thread, then one done in Watto's. 

OK, I merged the FX Sabers topics all together again...

It was hurting my brain to watch you guys have the same conversations in 3 different spots.   :P

Carry on!

So,



Picked it up last night on my way home from work ($11.99 Best Buy) and only had time to listen to a few tracks.  This AM however, I am 75% through my first full run.

So far, so good!   :)

"Anakin's Evil Deeds" = excellent.  ;D

Unfortunately, I haven't heard any word on this.  Anyone think to ask the Hasbro guys at C3?   :-\

Jeff: "Are the EB figures here going to be carded or in a mailer box when they ship?"

Hasbro Guy: "Yes."

Jeff: "Yes carded, or Yes Mailer box?"

Hasbro Guy: "Not quite sure yet.  No firm decision has been made."

I can't wait to start spinning the Episode III soundtrack next week

Any good freebies for that one yet?

I saw it listed in the Target ad ($11.98) with a "free download", but I'm not sure what that means.

Didn't look like the Best Buy ($11.99) was offering any freebies with it.

Hey, you be quiet too!  We whipped that guy good, with BOTH of our hits...  :-*

Hey!  I was actually there, so I can quip all I want...  :-*

Went to the ballgame yesterday afternoon and saw one hell of a pitcher's duel between Santana and Colon.

Both Colon and Santana threw 2-hitters, too bad for Johan his 2 hits were HRs.  Both Colon ahd Santana looked nasty out there. It was a great game to watch, just too bad that my Twins were on the losing side of the effort...  :'(

Anyway, it sucked.  That Vlad HR was just barely fair (it bounced off the Foul Pole for cryin out loud).  It was a great game to watch despite the fact that the Twinks lost... but as Scotty pointed out, we still took 2 out of 3, so be happy with your victory over our JV-squad we had out there on Sunday.

I just knew that you were going to bring that up...  >:(

I like to focus on the positives though, which was us winning the final game, and whipping up on your staff ace.  So shuddupaya face!  :-*

I wouldn't call two solo homers "whipping up" on Santana.   ::)  Other than those two dingers, he had the Angel batters on their heels most of the game.

What I would call it is a total lack of run support thanks to a great game pitched by Colon... he looked really good out there on the mound.  I think like 8 of the first 9 hitters managed only piddly grounders to SS/2B and it looked like it was gonna get ugly for my squad.

The first 8 innings of the game went like 2 hours it was so fast, if not for the Twins "rally" in the 8th that caused 2 pitching changes, it would have been over in like 2hr, 15min.

Another great deal with Dave!    :)

Dave bought some stuff from me.  He sent payment when he said he would and all was cool.

Your figures will go out tomorrow Dave!

Anyone know the case breakdowns on the Marvel series?  Or where I could find such info?  Is there a Marvel Kubrick forum?

Matt

You can check out our "general" kubrick thread here, or another great general kubrick site is www.kubrickworld.com for your non-SW Kuby discussion!

In the Making of ROTS book there is a shot of this Fighter outside Padme's Veranda.  His yellow one must be toast and he (as said) takes this one to Mustafar.

So, I supposed we should be prepared for another exclusive $30 Starfighter with Obi-Wan since he ends up with a 2nd ship too (the blue one he uses to get to Utapau)?   ::)

LFL and Hasbro saw the beauty of costume changes for multiple figure possibilities, I guess it was only a matter of time before the ships started getting costume changes too...  :-\

So, this thing is in stock at Amazon.com...

Star Wars Revenge of the Sith: Anakin's Jedi Starfighter

but it's listed for $29.99 plus shipping/tax.  :o

$30 for the same ship I've already bought twice with a pack-in figure I already have (#2 Anakin)?  No thanks.   >:(

Much more stability in the figure when 2 feet are on pegs instead of just one...

Jeff

But ultimatley usless when you want all of your droids doing the "Flamingo" on the grassy lawn of Naboo! :D

Kevin

Yeah, but since I just have (*gasp*) ONE, all I need him to do is stand next to GG and look "battle droid-y".

No need for my BDs to do hot dance moves...

You do, however, need to get some better stands for them.  The one that comes with the figure looks good, but is pretty much useless.

I highly recommend www.realstands.com... check out their website and order there, or place an order over the phone.  There are two pegs for the figures on these stands... and when you order, make sure you mention that you heard about them through this site.   ;)

I'll second this point.  The stands that come with the RotS figures were a nice touch, but for a large number of the figures (Battle Droid, Aayla) they suck.  I was much happier with how they looked with the REAL stand than the Hasbro stand.
