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!

Kubricks / Series 4
« on: April 29, 2005, 08:40 PM »
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...  :-\

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Anakin Starfighter Exclusive?
« on: April 29, 2005, 11:22 AM »
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.   >:(

Revenge of the Sith / Re: battle droids = terrible

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.

Guess I should drop a post in here...

Matt hooked me up with a place to sleep for C3.  He took care of all the arrangements, all I had to do was show up and have fun with him, Brent, Jared and the rest of our crew!

Thanks for taking care of the details, MAC!

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Wookiee Army
« on: April 29, 2005, 10:41 AM »
I opened my #43 Wookiee Warrior last night.

He is a little hard to stand because of the action feature, but a stand fixed that problem.  I've got him posed with his wookiee blaster and shield, and he looks great standing next to Tarfful, chewie and the Preview Wook.

I kinda wish now that I had grabbed an extra Preview Wookiee so that I could mix and match the accessories between the Preview Wook and the #43 Wookie.

Also, the #43 Wookiee is much less yellow in person.  I was able to grab one that was more of a "tan/brown" paint job, but be fore-warned that there are some crappy paint jopbs out there on this #43 Wookiee!

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Clone #6 vs Clone #41
« on: April 29, 2005, 10:36 AM »
A couple of questions:

1) The EE Clones shipped alreadY?

2) Any word on whether or not there will be clean and dirty versions of 41 shipping?

1) Yes.  They started shipping last week (I've already received mine).

2) No word on that, but with the antenna on their back, I'm guessing they are a specific type of clone from a specific planet or something...

The Vintage Collection / Re: Tonnika Sisters coming?
« on: April 29, 2005, 10:33 AM »
I still think the fact that they haven't gotten figures yet is tied to the fact that they are female characters in lousy outfits with little to no screen time.  They've got ugly 50s hair-dos, tacky outfits, and their undies out the outside like superheroes!  :P

Image this, licensing that.  Bah!  It all comes down to "peg-warmer" status.  If they made them, I'd buy them in a heartbeat of course - they're Cantina figures!  Outside of us die-hard ANH-loving collector dudes, who else on earth would want figures of girls from the 70s?

Putting all the rumor and back-story history aside, I still think that their feared peg-warming status has more to do with it than anything else...  ;)

Of all the pictures I took at Celebration 3, this one is probably my best work.  I think it captured the night perfectly...  ;D

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: EE exclusive Clone Trooper 4-packs!
« on: April 29, 2005, 10:19 AM »
Despite thinking I would only keep the "battle damaged" versions and sell the others, I opened up all 4 of my boxes last night.

 :-[

I am a damn sucker for these SA Clones.  Of course, my Arena Display now looks even better with 16 more SA clones spilling out of my gunships to save the Jedi's behinds, but I just wish it would have been a little cheaper.  Oh well, too late now.  I guess $25 for a box of 4 SA clones isn't too bad - $6.25 each.

And, like others have said, I do like the colors of these clones.  I think they are a bit nicer than the colored pre-posed clones we got in the 3-packs.

Kubricks / Re: 400% Kubricks
« on: April 29, 2005, 10:11 AM »
I'm about 1% tempted, 99% want to stay married :P

This is the same boat I'm in...  :P

I'd love to have this Fett, but at the cost of 1/3 of the year's SW budget?  I'm gonna have to pass.   :'(

Maybe I'll pick it up in 2015 or so...
