Revenge of the Sith / Re: KB 9-pack Exclusive w/ Silver Vader
« on: June 9, 2005, 02:02 PM »
New exclusve set from KB.  8 Existing figs and what appears to be a new Silver Vader fig.   Pretty pricey for $50.

 ::)

Eight repackaged figures with ONE "new" one that is really not that new since this is the THIRD Silver Vader?   >:(

I'd rather have the $50.

Feedback / Diddly's feedback

I just finished up my side of my first (and apparently JD's first) trade with long-time member Diddly

Travis sent me some money for a figure I was happy to help him with and he sent payment quickly with no hassels.    :)

Thanks again, Diddly!

Is it wrong to be happy that the Yankees have lost two in a row to Milwaukee thus falling 2 games below .500 and are firmly entrenched in 4th place in the AL East?   :D

Great game last night by the Twinks.  Crappy pitching was saved by two HRs by Hunter.  About time he got hot, maybe this is the start of something good for Torii.   :)

I think Duncan and his boys will win in 6 with Duncan picking up another Finals MVP and really showing KG up...  :-\

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Spider Droid

I tried searching for the post that talked about the spider droid but I cannot find it.

Anyway, is it just me or does the new spider droid "walk" and stand better than the old one.  The legs on it seem to be harder plastic than the old one and the overall wind up apparantus seem bigger. :-X

Anybody else notice that or am I making stuff up to justify yet another purchase? ::)

Here were some shots I took for the Deluxe Figures Thread.  There are definitely differences between the two.




The gun is different on the new one (the missile is the same, just the launcher part is changed).  Also, as you said, the legs on the new one are definitely more study (less bendy).  Didn't notice the wind-up being any different though.

At first, I didn't want it figuring I'd grab the figures later.  Then once I was pretty sure this was the only chance to get these figures (learning that it was a -time deal, NOT the kick-off of a new line), my OCD kicked in and I got one.

When I was at C3 and got a chance to look at the figures, I decided I was happy with the decision to get one.  I accept them for what they are.  Granted, $7.50 is a bit steep for a rehashed R2-D2, but then again, I paid $13 for a Target Clone so what the hell do I know about $ value?   :P

I guess I won't know for 100% sure until the figures come in the mail, but for now I'm not upset I grabbed one and sent away for my set of 4 figures...

Plo Koon Jedi Starfighter - Cancelled?

"June 3 2005: This item is not available at Entertainment Earth. Entertainment Earth has not received any units of this item from Hasbro."

Does this mean it's not coming or just that EE won't be carrying it?

Maybe it's now it's going to be an exclusive someplace else?

Hmmm...  :-\

A little birdie told me these are now shipping to some e-tailers.  They should be here soon...

I never heard of anyone actually getting them, but Rebelscum's report made it sound like they did come out at some point.  Really glad that's not the case, but I still despise OT product in ROTS packaging.


What?  An innaccurate/misleading report at Rebelscum?   :o   ::)

Seriously though, I'm glad Pawlus confirmed what I said, I'd hate for you to have to take my word for it...  :P

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Any ROTS figures you will pass on?
« on: June 7, 2005, 03:58 PM »
I've picked up all the basic figures I've seen so far (#1- #44).  I might not like them all, but I bought them all.   :-[

I think the only 3.75" stuff I've been able to skip so far is:

Deluxe Figures
Clone 3 Pack (Series 3) -- Haven't seen them yet, but I don't think I want them

Vehicles
Anakin's Jedi Starfighter (TRU Green Version) -- repaint ship + rehash figure = pass
Republic Gunship -- repaint ship = pass

I think the only other 3.75" scale thing I am planning on skipping so far is the Plo Koon Starship (repaint).  Everything else I'll probably end up with...  :-\

I still can't believe they changed the name from Anaheim to Los Angeles? 

I agree. 

"The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim"?

Lame.   ::)

Is this the correct droid for the ARC-170?

I think R4-G9 is the droid for the Jedi Starfighter that Obi-Wan takes to Utuapau.

But, feel free to use him where ever you want!  ;)

Twinkies suck.


That's all.

 >:(

Minn = 33-22 (.600)
LAA ::) = 33-24 (.579)
LAD = 29-27 (.518)

If the Twinkies "suck", at least the Angels/Dodgers suck more.   :-*
