Need to hear from:
Nataku


Sorry, but I think I will have to take a pass this year.  I love Fantasy Baseball, but I've got a lot of stuff going on right now so I won't have a lot of time for the draft.   :(

If it comes down to it and you need one more team, I may be able to swing but for now I'm a "no".

Very nice!  Looks like I'll have to save up the pennies again for this one.

I like the idea of more of these sets, but with the cost being so high I guess I'd rather they kept doing carded re-paints of existing figures for the exclusives so that I could still ignore them as that is much easier on the wallet... :-\

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Toy Fair exclusive Press Kit with figures
« on: February 21, 2005, 09:33 AM »
Wow...

That is a cool looking Press Kit, makes me a little upset, but if the figures are exactly the same I guess I can pass.  The Toy Fair Vader was such a striking figure with nifty packaging (like a basic figure) that I felt I "needed" one.

Since this thing really isn't on a "basic figure" type card, I guess I can hapily pass and not need one.  Of course, if they do offer them from SWS.com or another source, you can bet your bippy I'll buy one.   :-[

Here's a nice comparison picture from Rebelscum:

2 Little Piggies

The OTC has an orange-y shirt with deco on the center plate, as well as darker green skin and yellower teeth.

Why does that hand pic for Obi1 have his EpII lightsaber and his EpIII lightsaber?

That, I don't know. 

I'd guess it iss either spoiler related, or maybe due to the fact that the figure was developed over a year ago, or maybe Hasbro is just sloppy?   :-\

I think they molded the lightsabers in the hands like that because they are worried little Johnny might get a lightsaber in the eye when they do the action features

 >:(

I thought you were retired, smartass...    ::)

I think that these other figures have them molded on so when you do the "action feature", the weapon won't go flying across the room.

thanks for reading my post CHEWIE ...  :'(

According to Hasbro, this is due to some safety violation and some lawsuits that came from the Saga Throne Room Duel Vader (in the USA and Australia) and eventually lead to a product recall in Australia:

This way, with the lightsaber molded to the hand, the lightsabers will stay in their hands while they are doing the "slashing attack" action features that are planned for Collection 1 and won't be able to fling out and poke some kid in the eye.   ::)

You're turning into a regular JediMAC with your "post-first, read later" antics!

The lightsabers are molded to the hands?

Yes, you'll see this on most of the Jedi from Collection 1 who have "slashing attacks" (like Obi-Wan, Anakin).  They come with 2 hands - one empty and one with Saber like this picture from GH.com:

Episode 3 Obi-Wan Hands

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Animated Wave 3 (and beyond)?
« on: February 18, 2005, 02:19 PM »
I thought they were 2 per case?

Case Version 1, shipped in Dec and Jan:
2x ARC Trooper
2x Anakin Skywalker
2x Gen. Greivous
2x Clone Trooper (color varies)
1x Mace Windu
1x Durge
1x Asajj Ventress
1x Obi-Wan Kenobi

Case Version #2, the one that is currently shipping:
4x Gen. Greivous
4x ARC Trooper
3x Anakin Skywalker
1x Clone Trooper (color varies)

Most places that are still getting the Animated figures seem to be getting the newer version 2 case (you can see that EE revised their case listing on Jan 6th).  So, it started shipping at 2x per case, but it is currently only shipping at 1x per case.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: ROTS Picture Thread

(Is he Captain Antilles?)

Here is the LFL pic of the guy playing Antilles (Rohan Nichol):



I'd say they look like the same guy to me...

edit - on a related note, where can I get one of those sweet Alderaanian ponchos?  They seem to be the Ep3 fashion rage on Alderaan...  :P

I hope we do end up seeing an AT-TE. 

It looks like a good possibility because of the AT-TE Gunner figure, but like others have said just because you get the figure doesn't mean the vehicle is coming anytime soon.  After all, we're still waiting for a Cloud Car for the Cloud Car Pilot figure, a Death Star Playset for the DS Gunner figure, etc, etc.  :-\

So, I'm not holding my breath for the AT-TE just in case it never shows...

Initial thoughts on these pictures...

ARC-170 - so far, I'm digging it.  Can't wait to see some better pictures of it to figure out how many figures can go for a ride...

Mustafar - no wonder no one's been leaking pictures of that thing, it's pretty lame.  Let's hope the back side of the Volcano doesn't suck too hard.  But, like Jared said I guess I end up buying it once it's on clearance thanks to my basic figure OCD.   :-\

Vs 2-packs - looking dumber and dumber every time I see them... I'm starting to wonder if they come off those giant ugly bases?

I can't wait to see some close-ups of those figures... what exactly is the deal with the 2 helmets for the AT-TE Gunner dude?  Is it like a standard Clone Helmet and then a AT-TE Gunner Helmet or something?   :-\
