Gentle Giant / Re: Bust Ups!
« on: March 1, 2005, 09:33 AM »
BTW, as we discussed a while back, there were TWO different Bobe Fett Bust-ups shown at Comic Con last year. Anyone have a picture of the one that's apparently not going to be available now, which lost out in favor of this Silver crap? I can't recall now what that one looked like...

Here was the picture of the 2nd Fett from SDCC:

Fett #2

Nick said that it was only a scaled down version of the Boba Mini-Bust...

From speaking to the Gentle Giant people in Chicago, they said that the Boba Fett that is just a sized down version of the original mini-bust may not be part of the line.  It might have only been a display piece, and nothing more.

Absolutely, JAWS gains 8 categories, rebounds, blocks, 3's in a HUGE way, and loses only in assists slightly.  Because of that lopsided deal, all 9 of us may as well quit right now.  At least I'm trying to salvage my season.


Nothing like being a bit dramatic, eh?

The Jaws trade (which ISN'T finalized yet and can still be vetoed):

Jaws (Players to Trade)
K. Garnett (Min - F)   season rank 2
A. Jamison (Was - F)  season rank 41
E. Curry (Chi - C)  season rank 185

Dunking Wookiees (Players to Trade)
R. Allen (Sea - SG)  season rank 15
J. O'Neal (Ind - PF) season rank 78
E. Okafor (Cha - FC) season rank 85

Average of Jaws 3 players traded: 76
Average of Wookiees 3 players traded: 59

Brian is getting KG, season rank #2 (and the best player included in the trade), so I'd expect a bit of lopside towards jaws for that reason...

Now let's look at your trade...

Dressel's Rebels (Players to Trade)
A. Miller (Den - PG)  season rank 71
C. Atkins (LAL - PG)  season rank 59
W. Szczerbiak (Min - SF)  season rank 102

The Famine (Players to Trade)
A. Iverson (Phi - G,PG,SG)  season rank 18
A. Walker (Bos - F)   season rank 37

Average of Dressel 3 players traded: 83
Average of Famine 2 players traded: 28
With numbers as lop-sided as this, I'd expect Famine to be getting the #1 rated player at LEAST.  Since I don't see Famine getting any kind of KG quality player, I have to assume it's a crappy trade.

Let's be real here... Give me a break ::)

I really don't see the problem. :-\


The first part of your post is the problem.

You can't just give-up and dump all your good players to the best team in the league!  While maybe it's not cheating directly, it's a close as you can get and it's a pretty crappy thing to do to the guys in 2,3,4 places.  Pretty crappy of you and Dressel to even try it IMHO.

If this is the way it's going to be, where the crappiest team scuttles itself for the good of one of the best teams, then Simon or Brent or Scott you can have Nash, Francis, Camby, and who ever else you want from my squad...

Figured I'd start a new thread for the Deluxe Figure sets since the Carded Figure thread is turning into one giant jumble of stuff...

The gang over at Action Figure Times have some great new picutres up of some of the Collection 2 figures that have leaked out early...

- The AT-TE Gunner is FANTASTIC.  2-piece helmet!  Removable Armor pieces!  It is realy a GREAT figure and I'm sure the Army builders out there will love him.

- Mas Amedda, as speculated in the carded thread, he does indeed have a tongue that attaches to his face (just like the nose boogers on Dannik).   ::) 

I guess now PotJ Mechanic Jar Jar has someone to tongue-wrestle with...  :P

Head on over and check out the great loose pictures of these figures!

He does have spoiler features.  I'm surprised they're putting him out right away, actually.

Dooku Figure Spoilers! - CLICKY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK -

Wow, that's a lotta features in just one basic figure.  Poor Dooku...  :'(

More info on Series 3...

Early reports on the case break-down:

Boba Fett = 4/12
Jango Fett = 2/12
Bossk = 2/12
Zuckuss = 2/12
Dengar = 1/12
4-LOM =  1/12

I've seen reports that Fett is 3 normal to 1 silver, but I've also seen reports where Fett was even at 2 normal and 2 silver.

Looks like the Series 3 chase is definately the Silver Boba Fett.  Here are pictures from an auction on Yahoo Japan:

Lame.  I was really hoping for IG-88.   :( 

Maybe he'll end up being the summer convention exclusive?  :-\

Sounds like the Kubrick X-Men Box Set is shipping from Diamond this weekend, should be in stores on Wed.

I've got my eye on a couple local shops... as soon as the Spidey set and X-Men set get clearanced out, I'm all over them.

Power of the Jedi / Re: favorite POTJ figure
« on: February 25, 2005, 11:11 AM »
My favorite PotJ figure is still Bespin Han. 

Not the best articulation, but it was light years ahead of the PotF2 Bespin Han.  I loved the holster and the sculpt of his coat.  Definately my favorite PotJ figure.
