Saga '02-'04 / Re: Kenobi 7, Jango Fett 6
« on: July 19, 2003, 02:12 AM »
I'm still waiting for an ultimate Jango, with lots of articulation and no action features. And of course a removeable helmet, missle and two jetpacks. Maybe they could even base him off the video game and throw in a sniper rifle and some grenades...

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Rozatta !!!

Great job man! I also really like your first custom. Bounty Hunter is a kick @ss game, and I'm planning a few customs from that myself.

As far as Montross, I've been checking a few of those 21st Century Xtreme detail figures to find the right head for him. I want to make him with a removeable Mandalorian helmet, so I'm trying to find a head that doesn't require paint. Let me know if you come across a good one.

Keep up the good work!

Other Toy Lines / Re: plan b emergency special forces line...
« on: July 17, 2003, 11:01 AM »
I have a couple of those SWAT guys, and I think this is a really solid line.

I've been collecting these figures for a few months now, and I have several of the "Mission 2 Special Forces" as well as one of the mission 3 Gamestop exclusives. There are some great figures in these lines. The SEAL Night Ops diver comes with a removeable rebreather, removeable fins, an HK, a pistol that fits into the holster on his leg which comes with a removeable silencer, and a mine. Other figures in the series are equipped similarly. They go great with Marvel Legends and/or the Movie Maniacs 6 Aliens and Predators.

The Company is really great too. They actually go onto their toy boards and ask their customers what they want next. They answer questions, and discuss their products with the consumer. They have an offer where you can send a self-addressed stamped envelope, and they'll send you substitute heads (the heads on their figures are interchangeable) free of charge.

Basically, Plan-B puts out solid figures and they don't cheap-out on accessories, so I'll continue to buy from them.

So.....freakin.....excited.....

Maybe the two digs will share arms? I guess it could still be the vintage one if they share arms. And maybe legs or something. I'm really excited about these figures. This is good, solid stuff from Hasbro....and not an action feature in sight. :D

I'll have to be honest though...I'm really excited about the new Emperor figure. I know its not exactly new or anything, but I've been wanting a new Emp for years now, and this one kicks the POTF2 one "squaw in tha nyuts!"

Hey Cory, which Tusken is that? Is it the one with the removeable head or the one with the Massiff?

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Imperial 4-pk - how many do you have?
« on: July 11, 2003, 10:05 AM »
I have 2 of this set, and I honestly have to hold myself back from getting more. That Vader is easily my favorite Vader we have.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Regime Change...
« on: July 10, 2003, 02:37 PM »
I think this topic really asks the question, "Is there such a thing as a perfect government?"

Lets consider the apparent Pros of the Galactic Empire...

*Order
*Military Might to defend itself and its people
*Space Exploration/Colonization (Imperialism, a Con in disguise?)
*Academy
*Better security/policing
*streamlined gov't.

These all seem like they'd be great in theory. But all it takes is corruption for these pros to become cons. The people of the Galactic Empire basically became slaves to it. Military Might was not used to defend its people, it was used to police its people. Personal liberties were tentative. As long as you didn't draw attention to yourself, you were fine. And I'm sure there are many cultures on Earth that weren't such big fans on the United States or Great Britain and their "colonization" programs.

And what if you have a legal issue? Unlawful search? Who would you go to? I doubt you'll hear Miranda rights from a stormtrooper, though you'd probably hear half a dozen blaster shots tearing your family to pieces. I bet that's what Uncle Owen heard before they tossed a thermal detonator at him.

The thing with the Galactic Empire is that there's no system of checks and balances in place. The Emperor has complete control. He can have a planet destoying weapon built if he wants, and also have it used. Would you really want the Darth Lord of the Sith in charge of your gov't? And you think Dubya is bad...

I think if we can watch these movies and practice suspension of disbelief, we need to imagine that the Alliance will form a more perfect union, with liberty and justice for all. Okay that was cheezy. But in reality, the Old Republic fell because of its corruption, and at the heart of the cancer of the Old Republic was Darth Sidious.

Great topic, by the way!

The Original Trilogy / Re: Bossk?
« on: July 10, 2003, 02:07 PM »
You can see Bossk in a quick shot on the Sail Barge standing around Jabba. I'm pretty sure its the scene where Jabba pulls Leia back from the window. He's standing by a pole or column or whatever the hell those things are in the sailbarge. I think he's next to Ree-Yees or J'Quille or one of those guys.

Angry Ewok, I think you're thinking of the Sauron alien, like the ones in the Cantina.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Endor Troopers dissapearing?
« on: July 10, 2003, 02:02 PM »
I just like to assume the Dresselians were spread out over the forest sniping Imperial Patrols.

And Han does say something about meeting up at the shield generator at some specific time, so they probably just camped out somewhere until then.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Ya Hear about A wookie (Spoiler maybe)
« on: July 10, 2003, 10:50 AM »
I'm really happy to see Wookiees fighting in Episode 3. Its really something I've wanted to see since I first saw Chewbacca. Also, I heard there was a casting call for tall men, so I'm sure we'll see a bunch of actual wookiee costumes rather than all CGI.

So freakin psyched.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

since when are Jedi slaves to fashion? Can we expect Mace Windu to sport some bigass afro?

Admit it, its what you've wanted all along...

Well, I think there are many factors. Some pertain to the figures themselves, while others pertain more to the company's handling of the line.

Pertaining to Figures

*No more action features (which is something Hasbro seems to have recognized and is starting to phase out). Too many figures that we've been waiting for have been tarnished or even ouright ruined by action features.

*No more action stances. I have my collection displayed on shelves, and there is such a noticeable chaos to the AOTC figures because everyone, it seems, is in a dynamic pose. I really prefer Anakin secret ceremony and Aayla Secura becase they can be posed either statically or dynamically.

*Increased articulation. Granted, we don't need a bunch of Senators with Kung-Fu grip, but the major characters should have a wide range of poseability. Padme Droid Factory is a good example of a fully articulated figure. This figure is fun because its not limited by its pose.

*Bring Deluxe back to its Glory Days. Remember when the deluxe figures would be figures with accessories from the movie that were too big for a regular card? We got some really nice pieces like the Imperial Probe Droid and the E-WEB (which was a novelty at the time). I like deluxe figures that are like actual props from the set. No more Force Flipping Garbage.

Pertaining to The Company

*Advertise. This isn't 1980. I'd love to think that Star Wars is on the mind of every kid across the globe, but its not. There's alot of options for kids (and us) to buy, and Star Wars really needs to be put back in the forefront.

*Get a good slot for the Clone Wars cartoon (I know, this isn't Hasbro). If Cartoon Network plays this late at night, they might as well not play it at all. And while we're on the subject...

*Push the Clone Wars Cartoon in conjunction with the toys. Kids of all ages (even 26) love to see our favorite characters do cool stuff so we can buy their action figures. I want kids to love the Clone Wars cartoon and I want them to love the figures. The more they buy, the better it is for us.
