Saga Collection '06 / Cool Kid Collectors
« on: July 29, 2005, 04:39 PM »
Well, there is a stereotype that  most kids don't really like Star Wars figures, are into the Pokemon and Power Ranger stuff, etc.  Every once in a while I see a kid going crazy for Star Wars stuff... more with the ROTS than any other Star Wars line since the early 1980s in seems...

Anyways, today might have been the BEST toy run I've ever gone on.  I didn't find much figure-wise, but instead found something even better - a great conversation about Star Wars with a 10 year old at Walmart.

He was looking for a General Grievous figure, and there were two different kinds... he said he only wanted to get one, because his mom told him he could get 4 figures.  He wanted to get four different characters... including Luke.

I told him that there wouldn't be any Luke Skywalker figures out for a while.  He was pretty bummed about that.  He was looking for a ROTJ Luke, and said he had the one that had the button on his back and he didn't like that figure.  Even said he wish they would make a super articulated version like the #41 Clonetrooper!

He then asked me to help him decide on what figures to get, which I thought was really cool.  I told him to get whatever he wanted, and he said that he didn't want to pass up any figures that are shortpacked because he might not get a chance to find them again. 

As in most Walmarts, there is a second section in the main toy section that has some Star Wars stuff too.  I went back there and found a new Pilot Obi Wan Kenobi... I really wanted an extra of this figure, but told him that I would pick this as one of the 4 figures he could get.  He asked if it was a good figure, and I said it's probably the best Obi Wan Kenobi the've made in the prequel line.

While helping him pick out two more figures, he asked me which was my favorite Star Wars film.  I told him either ANH or ESB, or ROTS.  He said that he liked ROTS, but "wished that it had focused more on Anakin's seduction to the Dark Side."  I couldn't believe he said that!!

He ended up getting the 4-saber Grievous, the Pilot Obi Wan, a Clone Pilot and Darth Vader. 

Just thought I'd share that little story... I hope this section is appropriate for this story, as it kind of relates to the upcoming SAGA line because he did want a Luke figure... this kid proved to me that not all kids want those action features too... plus sometimes kids do think like adults.


The Wookiee Arcade / The Shard of Spring
« on: July 27, 2005, 11:58 AM »

When I was in elementary/junior high, this was my favorite game of all time.  A few years back, I played it again on my parents' old Apple computer before they got rid of it.

Does anyone know if it is possible to get a copy of this game onto a disk to play it on a modern PC?  I've looked online and even tried to download it, but it won't download correctly...


Saga Collection '06 / Advertising
« on: July 25, 2005, 04:12 PM »
Do you guys think that Hasbro advertises the Star Wars line enough?

I don't watch the kiddie channels, so I don't know if they have many toy commericals for the ROTS line.  But I do remember seeing all kinds of commercials for the line back in the day when I was a kid in the early 80s.

Of course now there are a billion things that kids are interested in too besides Star Wars...

The line seems to do pretty well as it is, and I think this has been the most popular Star Wars summer since 1983... but should they advertise more?  Will they do so when the ROTS line dies out?

With the supposed TV series coming out, maybe we'll see some commercials to coincide with the series?

What about magazine ads?  Or other forms of media?  We see a ton of it online of course.

What do you guys think?


Watto's Junk Yard / Insomnia = Hell
« on: July 22, 2005, 10:49 AM »
I can't believe what happened to me yesterday.

I got very little sleep Monday night, and did not even fall asleep either Tuesday or Wednesday night.  Before falling asleep last night, I had gone almost 60 straight hours without falling asleep. 

So they made me leave work yesterday to get checked out.  After going to the doctor, they gave me some prescription sleep medicine to use for two weeks.  I may have to go see a specialist.

I have plans to go out of town with my friends this weekend... I really shouldn't go on a float trip/camping though; I shouldn't drink, be in the heat, etc.  It sounds really stupid, I know.  But I had a major anxiety attack and am really stressed out.  Just going one single night without sleep can take 2-3 weeks for your body to get back to normal.  I hope nobody makes fun of me for this because it isn't funny.  I took 6 sleeping pills and half a bottle of Nyquil on Wednesday night and I still couldn't relax.

I've always had trouble sleeping, but with stress at work and a lot of things on my mind I guess it hit me like a brick wall.

Physically and mentally I'm drained.  I am still going to go this weekend though, but probably won't be myself.

Anyone else have problems with insomnia?


Saga Collection '06 / Battle of Carkoon Wave
« on: July 15, 2005, 09:19 PM »
The new Bib Fortuna, Han Solo and Princess Leia look great!!!  Finally, after about 9 years, resculpts of these characters!!

Bib Fortuna - simply wow... so much better looking than the old version... I am so glad they are finally remaking him... much better than my customizing attempt from a few years back... I can finally convert this version I made into a random Twi'lek background character or make a few changes for him to be a TPM version -

Han Solo - looks great too, and a definite needed new addition to our weak assortment of ROTJ Han Solo... customizing potential with this one!

Princess Leia - can't wait to see with the helmet removed... her helmet seems big, but I think it was kind of big on her in the movie too...

Overall, this Wookiee is pleased with what he sees in these new OT figures... yipeeee!  Amazing what Hasbro can do now compared to how bad the old POTF2 versions of these figures look by today's standards.


Revenge of the Sith / TRU 2-pks
« on: July 2, 2005, 03:50 PM »
Looks like TRU is starting to bundle up some of their Star Wars figures and selling them as 2pks at $8.97 or some price around that.  Saw this in a thread at Scum but not in person yet.

Good idea to me, though I'd rather see them cut their price to $4.00 a figure or something for a week... or Buy 2 get 1 free...


Photonovels and Movies / Vacation!
« on: July 2, 2005, 10:40 AM »
Just to let you guys know, I will be leaving for vacation tomorrow morning, and won't be back until late Thursday... so, no posting from this Wookiee unless there is internet access in my hotel, and even then I'll probably be spending most of my time busy or on the beach with the female Wookiee in my life.

So, everyone have a great 4th of July, be safe, remember what the 4th of July really stands for, and I'll look forward to chatting about everything customizing with you all when I get back.

I can't remember who was wanting to try and find some of these on ebay.  I just found two of them -


Revenge of the Sith / Concept Clone

Discuss either here or in the customs section.

Wow, I want Hasbro to make this... it blows the McQuarrie Stormtrooper out of the water!


Revenge of the Sith / TRU Exclusive Clones!
« on: June 27, 2005, 02:40 PM »
From Rebelscum -

"We've gotten early word that an army of Clone Troopers will descend upon Toys "R" Us stores this holiday season, by way of a trio of exclusive 3-pack sets.

Search For Yoda includes 3 red-colored Clone Troopers (aka Shock Troopers)

Jedi Temple Raid includes 3 blue-colored Clone Troopers (aka 501st Legion)

Attack On Utapau includes 3 orange-colored Clone Troopers

These will most likely be repaints of the Deluxe Clone Troopers sets, although this is not confirmed at this time.

Stay tuned for more details as they are revealed!"

Sounds really cool, and TRU exclusives usually aren't that hard to get!!!


Watto's Junk Yard / Tooting my own horn
« on: June 26, 2005, 11:16 PM »
Usually I don't "advertise" my photonovels in this section, but I'd like for everyone to check this one out, even you non-customizing people.  I hope you like it as I worked my butt off on this one.  Even sweated at the computer with it.  It's the 11th story in the Rykrof Enloe series -


Check it out in the photonovels section.   :)
