The Original Trilogy / Re: Why have a 2nd Death Star in ROTJ?

My wife likes to joke that the Emperor must have a very big case of male envy...

Especially when you add in these EU stories about Suncrushers and such.  All the Empire wanted to do was build them superweapons, "larger, firmer, longer".

I never did understand why they built a second DS after the rebels blew up the first one, it did seem like a waste.  I agree that there were a number of settings that would have made sense, but maybe Lucas just liked the idea of Big Balls in space?

I still think the league is going to end up contracting, probaby down to around 20-23 teams at best.  Who will go is open to speculation, but I think there'll be some surprises as well. 

I still can't believe in all the negotiating that this hasn't really come up.  Do the owners think they can slip it by the players once things get rolling again and the players won't object to losing jobs?

Even if they get this CBA deal done, the Contraction will be the next big issue, because like you Brent, I think they REALLY need to contract a few teams, at least 4 need to go, but probably more like 6 should go...

I agree, if they wanted one in there why did they stray from the "behind the cockpit" co-pilot look of the OT?  Would have made much more sense in the back for both the Ep2 and Ep3 versions.  :-\

Now we'll see some lame EU story to explain that Incom moved the R2 unit on the X-Wing from the "front of ship" design to the back because the little droids took so much damage up front, not to mention throwing off the balance of the ship... blah blah blah.

Beating up on Denver last night was a step in the right direction, now let's keep it rolling!

And I agree with ya Brian, I'd like to see Spree moved to shake things up a bit and make room for Wally (who is playing really well now).  Sure would be nice to have that "I need to feed my family" cancer shopped out before the stretch run...

I've been hearing (or rather reading) an interesting tidbit on this Starfighter.

It seems that the "R2 unit" on the starfighter is a junky 1-peice half-droid, but it is removable and the reports are saying that you can fit a regular R2 Droid in open space. 

Sort of like a Droid Socket if you want to fill it or a half-droid to fill it if you can't spare an R2.  I'm anxious to hear/see pictures from someone who has it to see if this pans out to be true...   :-\

I hope to stop by and check it out...

As a novice customizer, I am blown away by what some of the big boys can do with sculpy and home-made molds (still after 2-3 years of trying I've NEVER gotten a head mold to come out correctly  :-\).

Should be fun!

There is a new shot of "Polis Massan" over at if you'd like to check it out...

Strange looking alien design and a VERY interesting figure choice.  HUGE spoilers for this little guy, especially if you find out where the character is in the film...

Look at her chest and think about QuiGon.

I'm looking and looking and all I see is shadow from boobage.

Granted I do have bad vision and have been wearing the contacts since 6am, but I just don't "see" it....  :-\


edit - OK, I cut out the "portion" of Shaak Ti in question and played with the image a bit...

Now, I see something, but is is really "battle damage"?  :-\

Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS carded figures
« on: February 9, 2005, 10:14 PM » has some nice high-res shots up including a spoiler-ish one for Shaak Ti...

However, while there's a panic already over this "feature", her carded figure seems to NOT have the same feature, or it's covered up or plugged with something while the loose shot of her shows the feature clearly.

Huh?  What spoiler-ish feature? 

I've seen a few people say this, but I don't "see" anything... I must be missing something.   :-\

If you can wait until March, Diamond is importing both the X-Men and the Spiderman sets meaning that you can get them from a local comic shop or on-line.  In fact, most on-line comic shops have started taking pre-orders if you'd like to go that route...

At Mile-High Comics:
X-Men set
Spiderman Set

Otherwise, if you can't wait until March I've seen both the sets on eBay for similar $40 price, but more for shipping.

Dang!  I see it was scooped up within 3 hours of being listed.  That's what I get for going out to eat on a Friday night... >:(

Oh well, I keep looking I guess.  :-\

Lose 5 in a row, win seven in a row, lose 6 in a row.

Ugh.  I am tired of this bad chemistry, streaky junk this year.  Who do we think we areplaying like this, the LAkers?  Maybe KG wants a challenge with a lower playoff seed or maybe he needs a break from the playoffs this year, I don't know.

The worst part is without the Wild, I'm stuck following this train wreck of a squad.  The worst part is knowing that this team is basically the same as last year and it is only their in-fighting and bad seeds that have derailed us...   :'(

Maybe I'll take a break from sports for a bit and just pick up the Twins in March... I can always jump back on the wolves bandwagon when/if they make the playoffs I guess.

ROTS Minis appears to be scheduled for a May release.

RotS minis will be here in April!


The Official Site provides an update tonight on the 60 piece set...

"Star Wars Miniatures has two full sets scheduled for 2005. In April, Revenge of the Sith adds 60 new figures, including key Episode III characters, lightsaber-wielding Jedi and Sith, more Wookiees -- even General Grievous and his bodyguards. In September, the game's Universe expansion introduces 60 more figures from the Original Trilogy era and beyond, and also introduces a big (and we mean BIG) new aspect to the game.

 Each expansion will also be followed by an Ultimate Missions sourcebook, providing new maps and scenarios for Miniature gameplay. Ultimate Missions: Clone Strike releases on March 4, followed in June by Ultimate Missions: Revenge of the Sith, and August by Ultimate Missions: Universe.

Plus, in November be sure to look for the Star Wars Miniatures AT-AT, the most massive addition yet to the Miniatures game."
