Revenge of the Sith / Re: Battle Packs (5 figure sets)
« on: March 29, 2005, 09:47 AM »
Too bad there isn't an OT 5-pack so we could get Cantina Han, Mechanic Chewie, Slave Leia, PotJ Ben, and CommTech Luke again too...   ::)

Well, there IS an OT set...



Looks like:
Chewie - ??
Stormtrooper - CommTech?
Vader - ??
Luke - Saga Throne Roon
Han - Saga Endor

Filled full of re-packs, but at least it's a GOOD sign that the OT won't be totally forgotten this year...  ;)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Collection 1 Figures

I got my EE catalog in the mail yesterday too, and wow is that Anakin sure creepy.

Plus it gives me just a glimmer of hope that when this franchise is watered down enough and struggling for new figures, we just might end up with the Uncle Owen (Imperial Attack) and Aunt Beru (Imperial Attack) figures we've always wanted.    :P

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Diamond Comics Exclusive?
« on: March 29, 2005, 09:39 AM »
Hmmm...

Not sure what to make of it.  They might just have some exclusive figure cases/mixes, or maybe it's just a PR saying that they will be shipping RotS figures that day to be in comic shops the next Wednesday (4/6)?

With our luck lately with Hasbro, it's going to be yet another Jedi Starfighter...  ::)

If I had to pick a favorite character so far it would be Tyrion, that dude is great :)

Well, Book 3 (which I just finished last weekend) is filled full of the venomous, treacherous dwarf so you should enjoy it immensely.   ;)

Book 3 was actually a bit better than 2 - lotsa tying up some of those left-over plot lines and move a bunch of then forward, especially the Black Brothers and the Wall and those who dwell beyond it.

I cna't wait for Book 4, but luckily I have a lot of other books to get through so I shouldn't bee too hung up waiting for it...

I think these look great so far!   :)

The difference in quality between these and some of the olde pics on other sites is amazing - camera technology has come a loooooong way over the last 10 years!

Power of the Force 2 / JediDefender Image Database Retrospective
« on: March 28, 2005, 11:41 PM »


We here at JediDefender are pleased to bring you a brand new weekly feature - The JediDefender Image Database Retrospective

Each week, we'll bring you brand new, brilliant high-res photos of the older Kenner/Hasbro Power of the Force 2 figures.  You probably haven't really looked at your old figures since you bought them, but after you see our pics you'll probably want to dig them out for another look. 

Today, we kick it all off with the nine figures in the initial Power of the Force 2 assortment - Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi, C-3PO, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2-D2, and Stormtrooper!

Hope you enjoy these great high res photos!

I swear they should change their motto to: "Hasbro: Just Try and Guess How We Will **** You Over THIS Week!"   ::)

That sounds about right to me...  >:(

So we have 4 Starfighters now?  How many of these damn things do I need?  ::)

Well, if you buy the new figures on 4/2 and they go on sale at Target later (within 14 days), you can always go to Customer Service and get a price adjustment.   :)

AND, even if the sale is later (within 90 days) you can always go with the buy and return method that works so well...  ;)

JD Sports Forum! / Re: NHL Offseason

Poor Sidney Crosby -

No CBA = No 2005 Entry Draft

From potential #1 pick worth millions to another year in the Juniors...  :'(

Too bad for him, the fans, AND the... um, what was it called again?  Oh yeah, NHL.  (I hardly remember it anymore...)

There were rumblings a while back that the Starfighter would come with an Anakin figure - that was what everyone thought would be the preview set. Then that was scaled back and the preview was vehicle only. Shortly after that, I did hear rumors that the ship would come with an Anakin figure in a window-box just like Obi-Wan and his starfighter did for AOTC. The exclusive this time would go to TRU instead of KB.

Yeah, I remember hearing about those rumors of an Anakin Pack-In with a later version of the starfighter too....

Maybe that is all this is - The Sneak Preview Starfighter plus one of the Ep3 Anakin figures?

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Wal-Mart Exclusive
« on: March 28, 2005, 04:39 PM »
classic reproductions of the first four original Star Wars action figures from 1977

The more I think about it, the more it sounds like they might be re-doing the vintage figures to me, kinda like the PotF2 4-pack way back in 1995.  Then again, who knows?  It's probably just wishful thinking on my part...

Maybe it will turn out to be the vOTC figures thanks to Hasbro's desire for repacks/rereleases to lower costs on things like this, despite the fact that they said all last year, "honest, we swear, it's this time or nothing for the vOTC.  You'll never see them again".  Yeah, right...  ::)

But as it stands, $30 for either the 4 vOTC figures I already have loose OR 4 vintage repros I don't really need since I have the vintage versions?  No thanks.

I'll be passing on this one... and, now, the only way I go to Wal-Mart on 4-2 is if Target doesn't send me a $1 off coupon.  If I do get the coupon from Target, then that will be the ONLY stop I make on April 2nd.   ;)

Revenge of the Sith / Can You Break the Emperor's Code?
« on: March 28, 2005, 04:22 PM »
Yet another thing to complain about this weekend...  ::)

From Hasbro:

Can You Break the Emperor's Code? 

Quote
The Emperor's Code is hidden on each of the 3 STAR WARS EPISODE III REVENGE OF THE SITH Exclusives available at Wal-Mart, Target, and Toys "R" Us stores.

Locate the hidden code on each toy, figure out what it means, enter the code into the vault website and you could win an Emperor's Code Breaker T-shirt.  But more importantly, figure out The Emperoro's Code and you'll reveal the evil plan to take over the galaxy...

Does Hasbro actually expect any kids to get their hands on these 3 exclusives from Wal-Mart, Target, and TRU?  Seriously?

What the hell?  Whoopee!  I'm a giant nerd identified by my Emperor's codebreaker T-shirt!   :P

This totally rings of B-E-S-U-R-E-T-O-D-R-I-N-K-Y-O-U-R-O-V-A-L-T-I-N-E...  ::)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Collection 1 Figures
« on: March 28, 2005, 03:55 PM »
If you look at the "Action Toy Arena, they have most of the figures sorted out by Collection...

and yeah, since he is in collection 1, the Wookiee has an action feature:

"Squeeze legs together for Battle Bash!"  ::)

Oooh... and the Nemoidian Warrior has one too:

"Squeeze legs together for POWER SMASH!"   ::)

At least the clone just says "14 points of articulation" and makes no mention of an action feature!   ;D

Don't know if these are technically Collection 1 or 2, but these look all sorts of cool:

Since they are technically scheduled for Collection 1, I'm moving this one over to the Collection 1 thread...  ;)

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Rebelscum Spam Mail? WTF???
« on: March 28, 2005, 03:45 PM »
As for Philip, I think his comments, especially this one particular paragraph, much better convey anything that I could possibly say regarding how they feel about their members...

Philip:
What I don't understand is how it's possible this email really bothered any of you.  You think you're going to trip me up and point a finger at me? Get a life and move along.  We have tens of thousands of users who were delighted to receive the emails, hope we continue the site, and support everything we do on it.  I'll waste no further time on this issue with you.

Kinda scary really.   :-\

"Get a life and move along. "

What a positive way to run a SW Forum.   ::)

He still didn't address why he sent the spam to those who DID "get a life and move along" after having their accounts locked/banned.
