Revenge of the Sith / Would you have changed the Preview Wave?
« on: February 2, 2005, 11:36 PM »
Just wondering... I think that 3 of the 4 figures are great for the preview wave, but wish perhaps that they had added in a second army builder...

What if you could have changed the assortment, by taking one figure out and replacing it with another?  What would you have changed?

I would have moved either Tion Medon or R4G9 to the basic ROTS figure assortment, and added in a SA Clone Trooper...

So, my case assortment would have been -

4 x Clone Trooper
4 x Wookiee Warrior
2 x Grievous
2 x Tion Medon or R4G9

What do you all think?  Who the hell wouldn't have liked to see the SA Clone Trooper already?   :)


Revenge of the Sith / ROTS Dooku
« on: February 2, 2005, 01:33 PM »
Is anyone else psyched about this figure?  I am totally looking forward to this one, probably as much if not more than any of the other figures... he just looks so freaking articulated and is the AOTC/Clone Wars version I always wanted...

Request - if anyone somehow comes across one of these early and is willing to sell it, please let me know.  I'll definitely pay more than retail to get it early...


Customizing Tips and Tricks / Image Hosting
« on: January 30, 2005, 01:03 AM »
I know that a few guys have their own personal websites.  I have a few pics I'd like to be able to post here to show you guys, but I need them hosted somewhere.  Not necessarily a ton of images, just some customs that I'd like a bit of advice on. 

I've got a few customs that are in the works that I could maybe use a bit of help on... so if anyone wants to, please email me at  Thank you.


Revenge of the Sith / ROTS - What are you looking forward to more?

The toys or the movie?


Original Trilogy Collection / TRU - 4pks
« on: January 12, 2005, 10:26 PM »
I think that we will definitely be seeing more of these sometime down the road... despite the terrible selection of rehashes they put in most of these, all the TRU's in my area are sold out of most of them... just a few of the Skiff Guard sets hanging around I think.  So surprising that people actually bought the Jedi 4-pk...

Anyways, anyone still seeing the Kaadu 4-pk?  That seemed to be the hottest one in my area since the Imperial Forces one.  That Kaadu looked great, and it came with quite a few good army-builders, as well as the hard to find Naboo red guard dude.

Think we'll see more?  Want to see more?  I think we will, but don't know how much I want to see more... only if they come up with some really good ideas, like my ideas!!!  ;)  With sometimes a new figure in there to spice things up, but a lot of these could be well done kit bashes and rehashes of rarer figures.


- Mos Espa

Graxol, red Twi'lek, Bib Fortuna, riding Qui Gon w/ Eopie

- Coruscant

Wookie Senator, Rodian Senator, Ishi Tib Senator, Ree Yees Senator w/ Senate Pod


- Red Battle Droid, Factory Chase Padme (new head), Secret Ceremony Anakin (new right hand), Geonosian rider w/ Picador beast


-  CT Stormtrooper, Tarkin (Ozzel body), Imperial Officer (4th head), TIE Pilot w/ circular Imperial Command Console

- R5D4 (Star Tours), Owen Lars (new), Beru (POTF2), CT Jawa w/ Gonk Droid & Moisture Vaporator


- feeling dumb, can't think right now


- help me out here guys - maybe some Jabba's Palace aliens or Emperor's throne room set w/ seated Palpatine?



Original Trilogy Collection / OTC Sales and Clearances!
« on: January 12, 2005, 10:11 PM »
I know that Walmarts around the land are supposedly having quite a few OTC figures for $3 each - anyone lucking out on these and scoring big?

So far I did run into a Walmart that had a few - bought the following figures for that price for army-building and custom fodder -

Scout Trooper X3
Lobt X2
Bespin Leia X1

I was hoping to find some more Walmarts in my area with these, but nobody seems to have them... anyone having luck?  Or anyone want to help a Wookiee out if they have a Wally World in their area with a surplus of these?


Revenge of the Sith / Any ROTS Screen Scene Ideas Yet?
« on: January 12, 2005, 03:42 PM »
I know it's still a bit early, but we've seen a few SPOILER pics so far and some rumors floating around, so here's a few I've come up with.

Dooku's Demise
- seated Palpatine, Anakin/Dooku in heated clash

Wookiee Rage
- Wookie Commando ripping Clone Trooper's arm out of socket, second Clone Trooper

Sith Revealed
- Anakin (Vader), Windu and Palpatine shooting force lighting at Windu

A New Hope
- Padme's death bed w/ Padme on medical bed, alien doctor, robed Obi Wan Kenobi and baby twins

I always think these are fun, so everyone join in.  Let's see if we can all think of a few.  I've got more ideas but need to get back to the grind at work.   :-\


Revenge of the Sith / Any ROTS figures you will pass on?
« on: January 12, 2005, 03:32 PM »
I find it unlikely that I will pass on any - maybe if they make some really cheesy deluxe figures like the force flippers.


Saga Collection '06 / Repacks that you'd like to see in 2006?
« on: January 4, 2005, 11:46 AM »
I know, I know.  Most people hate repacks.  Usually I'm one of them, but I think that a few are healthy for the hobby. 

For those in favor of the idea, what figures would you like to see repacked maybe in 2006 so you could purchase them for army-building, customs, finally getting at a fair price, or want to see on a nice cardback, etc.  I'd like to see the following for openers/customs/army-building, and will include some PT figures as well, since some are on POTC cards anyway now:


- Sio Bibble
- Amidala (accension gun)
- Pit Droid 2-pk
- Darth Sidious (holographic)


- Battle Droid (red)
- Amidala Factory Chase (new head)


- McQuarrie Stormtrooper
- Death Star Droid
- CT Leia
- TIE Pilot
- Imperial Officer (4th head)
- Obi Wan (Dagobah spirit painted like a normal figure)
- Stormtrooper Han (use CT or VOTC Stormtrooper body)
- Stormtrooper Luke (use CT or VOTC Stormtrooper body)


- Bespin Guard (2nd head)
- Bespin Guard (3rd head)
- Ugnaught 2-pk (repainted slightly)
- AT-AT driver (TIE Pilot repainted)
- Stormtrooper (CT version I guess, but VOTC would be better!)


- Jedi Luke (just a great figure, so why not)
- Gamorrean Guard (w/ new articulated wrists)
- Teebo (repainted into a different Ewok)
- Ree Yees
- Ishi Tib
- Ephant Mon
- Amanaman

Ok, that's 26 repacks... kind of a lot.  But I think they would sell.

Original Trilogy Collection / "Pride Display" Vintage-esque Diorama
« on: December 23, 2004, 10:46 AM »
Wow, this is very cool and has a lot of potential - what do you guys all think of these?  Yeah they are expen$ive at $69.99 and available in May 2005 (five more scenes are planned, no figures included), but I have to say this is a step in the right direction!

For more info, go to the front page or the offical shop site!   :)


Think it will be this?   :)

Or this?   ;)

Or this.... :'(

Or something else??


Revenge of the Sith / ROTS Nemoidian Soldier x2!
« on: December 5, 2004, 11:37 PM »
Remember seeing a pic of this guy in an Insider a while back?  Perhaps it was the issue with the Clonetrooper on the cover.

Anyways, has anyone heard anything about a figure being made?  I thought this was a very cool design, and I hope we don't have to wait around forever to get a figure made.  I remember it took until POTJ to get a Gungan Warrior figure, and at that time there were already 4-5 Jar Jar figures...

Thoughts?  I think this guy looks great, and could also have awesome customizing potential...


Revenge of the Sith / ROTS Fleet Troops - A New Hope?
« on: December 3, 2004, 04:59 PM »
Just wondering.  Since we are seeing the Tantive IV in EP3, will there be Fleet Troops aboard similar to the ones we see in ANH?  If so, this could mean that they finally make a figure that has a removable helmet and a working holster.

They could possibly use the Fleet Trooper POTJ body, but update it with a new head and use the Antilles removable helmet, and give him a working holster as well.  Add a little more realistic paint job, and this could be a very nice figure.



Revenge of the Sith / If you could...
« on: November 27, 2004, 01:24 PM »
...walk into Walmart tomorrow and find by a miracle, any 3 of the ROTS figures, which ones would you want to find?  Say they would have 3 figures - one of each - and by some freak accident they showed up at your Walmart tomorrow.  Which ones would you want to find, and why?

I'd go with -

Emperor Palpatine - just want a good all around Emperor figure, this one looks to have a lot of potential, and would look nice in my Death Star diorama

Mace Windu - since it seems like we've never gotten a good version of this character, this one could be great in my Arena diorama for the time being

Grievious' Bodyguard - this guy just looks tough, I could have him appear in one of my Rykfrof Enloe photonovels  ;)

What about you all?
