The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Jedi Homing Beacon
« on: May 20, 2005, 11:10 AM »
I kinda thought it was just a convienient way to get Obi-Wan and Yoda to go back to the temple. 

It gave them an excuse to go back there even though it was not a wise thing to do.  That way, they get to see the security video and the dead bodies and it re-inforces the "crap, Anakin went bad" point to Obi-Wan. 

I didn't really think about the TV implications, but you could very well be right about that - it kinda lends a point to why/how the other Jedi knew to go into hiding even though their instict would have been to rally around Yoda and Ben to fight the Sith.

TV-9D9 / Re: Timegap Between EpIII and EpIV
« on: May 20, 2005, 11:03 AM »
Long enough apparently for Obi to forget about Leia.  This was one aspect that really sort of irritated me in ROTS.  Obi is there for the birth of the children, they have the conversation regarding where to take Luke AND Leia after they are born.  Obi knows about Leia.  Yet in ESB Obi states that boy is our last hope to which Yoda replies no, there is another.  You all know it well.  How is that resolved? >:(


I think Obi-Wan says that because Luke had been trained by them, while Leia hadn't.  Realistically at that point, he was the last hope they had in Obi-Wan's point of view because he knew how much potential Luke had.  Ben had been able to watch over Luke and watch him develop, but he had no idea if Leia was even capable of being trained. 

Maybe that exchange was Yoda's way of reminding Obi-Wan that if they had to, they could start over with Leia if Luke got bumped off?  Yoda's way of letting Ben know that Leia too was connected to the Force like Luke.

The Prequel Trilogy / C-3PO, R2-D2, and "Droids"
« on: May 20, 2005, 10:58 AM »
At the end of RotS, Bail asks for 3PO's mind to be wiped so he'd forget everything...

So...

1. Does this totally render the Droids cartoon into "other universe" non-canon?  3PO goes right into service on Tantive 4 and stays there for 20 years?

or

2. Is the Droids cartoon some kind of "false memory" they give 3PO?  Maybe they were worried that he needed the false memories to help him deal with the wipe and still allow him to keep some kind of a bond with R2-D2?  The memories give him a sense that him and R2 have had adventures without him knowing the truth about it...

Preponderances?  ;)

I look at it this way (with only 14 hours post-viewing to develop my theory)...

The Sith created Anakin through an "evil" manipulation of the Force.  Whether it was Plagius or Sidious, I don't know for sure.  I think it's safe to say that the movie implied that Anakin was created by one of them...

Because he was created by the Force by means of Sith manipulation, I think that is why, as Jesse pointed out, Qui-Gon found Anakin by "chance".  I think that the Force lead the Jedi to find Anakin in some sort of attempt to save him from his Dark Destiny. 

It's like the Force knew that this poor kid was doomed unless someone could intervene to try to save him.  Maybe if he was able to get some Jedi Training then there would be some semblance of "good"" in him, a sense of "right" would be instilled in him.

Eh, who knows...

Brent, weren't you around when one of our group mentioned their tale of how they got a bunch of the cases, but realized that the C3 volunteer forgot to give them the corresponding BACKS?  They had to march back into the store and explain the problem to someone to finally get the corresponding case backs.  I forget who that was that it happened to now though...

That was Dale!  He was all happy to get his figures and almost left without the Star Case backs!  :-X

He marched right back to the guy and let him have it!   ;)


BTW, how many of your passes do I still have?

 :P

You still have my 4-day pass...  :(

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Which Clone is Commander Bly?
« on: May 19, 2005, 09:18 AM »
Like I said earlier, I would guess this is something the Official Site will clarify in the next few days (ala the Clone Colors in AOTC)

I agree.  They've already given us a Databank update on the ships in the opening sequence of RotS, and the latest update is a look at the "Rebel Alliance" Senators (most all of whom ended up on the cutting room floor).

I'd expect there to be a Clone & Commander Update in the next month...

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS Figures on Sale Thread!
« on: May 18, 2005, 11:31 AM »
I love price adjustments...  :)

As others have mentioned, just about every SW toy not mentioned specifically in the Target ad is on sale for 15% off, so I brought in a stack of 4 receipts to Target last night (Wave 2 Deluxe, Figures #41-44, etc) for credit.

They didn''t include the Clone Trooper in the 15% off sale though, too bad...   :(

Other Collectibles / Re: Attakus Star Wars Dioramas
« on: May 18, 2005, 08:57 AM »
Another huge dilemna with these sets, is whether to actually collect the metal figures as well?  ****.  I dunno.  I want them as dioramas for the 4" Hasbro line, but I just know that I'm not going to be able to pass on the corresponding Attakus figures, lest the sets aren't "complete" (yeah, shut up!)

Yeah, this is my fear too... that I break down and buy these sets only to really like the figures and want to buy those too!   :(

I'd guess that's the whole reasonwhy Attackus is packing one of the figures in the sets though, to get you started - can't have just one figure from a line after all!  :-[

I merged the 2 Attackus Threads.   I'll leave this merged version in the "Other Collectible" section for now since it is not a Hasbro 3.75" figure item (even though it seems to be geared towards that).    ;)

I hope I never see one of these in person or I will probably want it...  :-\

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Target Exclusive Clone Trooper
« on: May 17, 2005, 11:45 AM »
Would anyone have even bothered with these if Target had gotten their original request of having the Target Logo on the chest?

Yes, even if they had the Target Logo for markings, I'd still want two - one loose, one carded.  :-[

The latest word in fashion: 7 is the new 3 3/4

I still think this line is Hasbro trying to convince us that Larger figures are "awesome".   ::)

Anyway...

Han Solo w/Stormtrooper Disguise:


Luke Skywalker w/Backpack Skiff:


And the first re-hash, Darth Vader w/Cape Glider:

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS Figures on Sale Thread!
« on: May 13, 2005, 10:17 AM »
We've received a few reports that figures will be going on sale at Target next week to coincide with the movie's release week.

A few things of note:

$4.99 basic figures
$14.49 electronic lightsaber
$17.99 lego starfighter & vulture droid (15% off selected lego)
$5.99 micro vehicles

Maybe it's not much of a deal ($0.25 per basic figure), but it's better than nothing!  Check your Target ads on Sunday!

Any plans of doing a Target Clone giveaway in the future?  If so, I submit my name right now!  ;D

Not yet.  We've still got a pretty big pile of loot to get through, but it is possible if one of the staff gets their hands on an extra Target Clone!   ;)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Bonus Clone Troopers!
« on: May 13, 2005, 09:03 AM »
Has there been any word of these two bonus figure sets being found anywhere other than Kohl's so far? I just can't believe that a store like Kohl's would be getting Star Wars exclusives, when they hadn't ever even sold the figures (that I know of) until just a month and a half ago. Seems strange.

Actually, Kohl's has carried the figures for the launch of each prequel movie, they just don't carry them much after the first few months is all.  They will get in figures here and there as each new line is launched, but they are not a regular SW retailer at all.

All the info we have received thus far from Hasbro indicates that these will only be available as Kohl's exclusives...
