Saga '02-'04 / Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic
« on: January 7, 2004, 12:11 PM »
I'm about half-way though this game, and I absolutely love it. There's some really cool characters, and it has a great SW feel to it.

Does anyone else think there's some great action figure potential in this game? Lots of cool droids, spacers, main characters, Mandalorians, Sith Troopers, Dark Lords, etc. I could see a great line from this game.

Saga '02-'04 / Star Destroyer Wave
« on: December 15, 2003, 11:42 AM »
Any idea when Hasbro will show us pics of the Star Destroyer wave? Is it usually done on a Friday? I can't remember if the past ones were done on Fridays, and what time of the month.

I'm eagerly anticipating this one!  ;)

Clone Wars '03-'05 / IG-88 Then and Now...
« on: November 19, 2003, 10:34 AM »
I love the new role for the IG droids.

Growing up, there was always something cool about IG-88, and I remember hearing that he was an old war-droid. Now, that may not make him cutting-edge cool, but it made him mysterious. He was so strange, dirty and battered-looking.

Then, along came EU, and sucked the charm out of 'ol IG-88 with a completely uncreative and ludicrous story about how the borg—er I mean—IG-88 was one mind shared by 5 units. Then came the download into the Death Star 2, etc. Total garbage.

Now, we see a squadron of IG droids riding swoops into battle in the Clone Wars. I'm not sure how you guys feel about it, but I really like this. It brings me back to my childhood view of IG-88 being an obsolete (and illegal) War Droid who wasn't destroyed. Maybe he isn't one of the IG droids we see in the Clone Wars cartoon at all. But at least it becomes conceivable that he's a remnant from the Cone Wars.

I love it.  ;D

Watto's Junk Yard / Anyone feel like going to Home Depot?
« on: November 13, 2003, 12:10 PM »
Someone sent me this link, and while I'm not crazy about the music, it may be one of the best videos....ever.

Watto's Junk Yard / One of the reasons I prefer JediDefender...
« on: October 30, 2003, 10:56 AM »
I was checking out my old stomping grounds this morning, and I was discouraged to see how it had deteriorated. Much like the Empire itself, free speech had been severely quelled, and conversation was forced into a series of "master threads". If you know what I'm talking about, I'm sure you'll agree.

That's why its refreshing to come here, and not have to deal with all that. And that's one of the reasons I prefer jedidefender.

The Prequel Trilogy / Vader's freak-out moment
« on: October 23, 2003, 10:39 AM »
I was trying to stay vague with the topic title so the non-spoiler people wouldn't see this on the main page.

This is in reference to the spy report from theforce.net:

"Also, when Anakin wakes up as Darth Vader and is told what happened to him he becomes so angry he rips apart the room he's in with the Force. "

Do you think that Anakin will reconstruct himself in this scene? Why has Lucas been drilling it into our heads that Anakin is good at building/repairing things? He built C-3PO and a Podracer at nine years old. He gets angry and claims he will learn to stop people from dying. Is this just a coincidence, or will Anakin be at least partially responsible for his reconstruction?

Saga '02-'04 / The Separatists
« on: October 10, 2003, 11:01 AM »
I'm trying to come up with a list of which separatists we don't have yet.

1. Po Nudo
2. Senator Tikkes
3. Toonbuck Toora

These are the seps I found in the star wars databank. "Ackbar to Zuckuss" doesn't seem to be loading right now. I'm pretty sure there was someone with Shu may, but I can't find a picture anywhere. And Nute Gunray's aide is supposedly not Rune Haako this time around.

Saga '02-'04 / Amazon has screen scenes 2
« on: August 21, 2003, 09:57 AM »
I just ordered the second wave of screen scenes from Amazon. Hopefully if Newforce and Amazon both come through, I'll have my jedi and separatist forces chatting it out soon enough.

Watto's Junk Yard / Who are these People!!!
« on: August 12, 2003, 02:53 PM »
With the confusion in the Rebelscumians thread, I thought I'd solidify the community here a bit more, and give us a chance to introduce/reintroduce ourselves. No need to follow my formula, post whatever you want.

I guess I'll go first.

I've been collecting Star Wars since I could hold the figures in my hand. I first saw A New Hope when it was rereleased right before The Empire Strikes Back. I was about 3 years old, and I had a Darth Vader candy dispenser. My feet didn't even touch the floor. I was a fan from then on.

Saga '02-'04 / Newforce
« on: July 1, 2003, 12:23 PM »
Has anyone here preordered this case from New Force Comics?

I'm wondering if anyone's heard any news on these. They'll really be some of my first 2003 product, so I'm getting really impatient. Any news?

Conventions / San Diego Comic-Con 2003
« on: June 25, 2003, 10:55 AM »
The reason I'm asking is because I wanted to see if someone could pick up one of these figures for me. I want one to do a custom for my Aliens vs. Predator set up. The figure in question is the black wetsuit Lara Croft pictured here...



Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! :D :D :D

How do you post a link as just a word rather than the entire URL?
