Revenge of the Sith / Re: 500th commemorative figure... Vader?

Well you're in luck then.  It's $19.99. 

Too expensive for my taste unless it's electronic or something.   >:(

Keep in mind that while the EE/etailer price is $20, it's likely to be a bit lower (like $15-16) at Target/TRU/Wal-Mart I think...

I've sent word to my Targt contacts, but have yet to receive any answers about what the deal is with the Cup Exclusive and any of the later exclusives.   :'(

Got an e-mail tonight with a possible update:

Target RotS Figure w/Cup Sets

General Grievous w/Cup
Obi-Wan Kenobi w/Cup
Clone Trooper w/Cup

No pictures yet, nor do I have any idea which versions the figures are included or if they are re-packs...

Matt,  on the left hand side of the main page where you have the fourm, chat room, etc buttons one of them is links.  If you click on that there is a RS link which takes you to RS.  I would post a screen shot of it if I knew how and had the time.

http://www.jedidefender.com/links.php

Thanks for pointing it out, I hadn't noticed that...


I'd like to think we can take the higher road and not sink to the petty level that has brought us to this point. :)

You'd think so, but when my ass gets banned for nothing more than being buds with JediMAC?

Gone.   :)

I just went in there and "updated" the page and dumped the RS linky...  8)

My preseason picks:
Central - Indians

Hey!  No picking the Indians allowed in this thread...  :P

I'll cut you some slack though because if it weren't for that, your picks would look a lot like mine.   ;)

Wow...so because you work for JD you've been shown the door

Yes, the PM that I received inferred that because I am JD Staff I was no longer welcome, simple as that.

I won't lose any sleep over it though, that's for sure...

At least I got a "we're closing your account soon" courtesy PM so I could finish up a few trades I was working on...

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Deluxe Figures
« on: March 31, 2005, 01:18 PM »
From places that are pre-selling the Wave 3 cases, they are shipping with:

Deluxe Wave 3:
Clone Troopers
Crab Droid (w/Walking Action, like the CW Spider Droid)
Stass Allie w/Speederbike (not sure if it's a BARC or regular bike)
NEW Spider Droid

Due in June/July...

I would assume they'd have enough sense to ship a few extra Trooper 3-packs, but this is Hasbro we are talking about...  :-\

So now they are banning JD members and staff members for no reason?

Yes, it would appear that it's house cleaning time over at RS and many who have preached the word of JD are being shown the door - CHEWIE, J-MAC, jokabofe, etc...

You have got to be kidding me... just two days before hand they change their minds?

From Toys "R" Us (via their new pimp):

Quote

Yeah, this is another one of those case (like TF Vader) where the packaging is what really sells me on this figure.

I love the re-use of the vOTC clamshell idea as well as the backer card that makes the figure less "rounded". 

I plan on keeping this guy carded and put up on the wall, if I don't snag a second for the loose collection, that is fine with me.  I probably wouldn't open it anyway.

I think that the Evolution sets are coming later -
Evolutions Thread

EE has them listed for July arrival...

Now should I get 2 of each or 3 of each I dont want to be a pig and hog all the clones up


I doubt you will find anyone here who will tell you how to collect... like everyone else has said, buy what you want to buy, don't buy what you don't want to buy.

Simple as that.  ;)

It would be hilarious (and painfully obvious what would happen) for Dustin to speak his mind here.  It'd no doubt cost him his gig over there so there is no way he'd say anything here.

It is fun to watch all the traffic here though... quite a few of RS's mods/admins have been over here for a look-see and no doubt are discussing this ****-storm over in their secret admin forums.

I still think that the SPAM mail sucked, but I understand it was a part of the "business" side of RS.  I get that - money is the end reason for actions over at RS now, not the users.  It's a hobby that became a business.

I just think it was pretty crappy to tell off his forum members the way he did with a "if you don't like it you can go home" attitude.  Very un-professional, but I guess if I had to deal with all the dumbasses over there on a regular basis like he does, my patience would be worn thin too.   :P
