The one FOTR figure everyone should have is Sauron from the 2nd Age. That thing kicks so much bootie...I can't put the thing down! :D

Sorry, I know I'm not much help here...

:P  Obviously they never caught your post in the Spelling thread here, or they wouldn't have been so surprised!   ;)

Yeah!!! ;)

Honestly I just wanted to see if I could win it. I'd never even heard of that Phantaena figure or the other figures in that line. I guess it'll be a conversation piece...

Any contests coming up from JD?


Sweet! Thanks PL! :D

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Re: EP3 now on

Jar-Jar is going to be the one that will save the newborn Jedi twins.  I'm looking forward to a 3 pack of Jar-Jar with the twins in a running pose, outstrethed tongue, rump aimed upward in tooting postion, and some sort of beast's poop accesory.  The ultimate Jar-Jar Binks moment forever in plastic.  

Oh man...I almost shot coffee out of my nose there!!!  ;D

Tarkin should definitely be in Episode 3.

My bet...

Anakin kills Dooku to take his place at Palpatine's side, choosing the dark path, where Luke chose the light side in ROTJ.

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

I entered this contest over at where I had to identify a bunch of action figures, several of which were Star Wars figures. I actually won! Check it out...

I feel so nerdy...  :-[

They didn't include this on the DVD's cut scenes, but that god-awful dinner table scene with Padme's family was yippy-freakin-skippy?

Going back to the original topic, this is how I see it:

*Tan Battledroids are from the Trade Federation's private army.

*Red Battledroids are from the Techno Union's Army.

*Super Battledroids are not painted...yet (we see a Super Battledroid chassis being assembled in the Droid Factory. Anakin's arm and lightsaber get caught beneath it)

*Droidekas are unpainted. Trade Federation or otherwise. We see Droideka parts on the conveyer belts in the Droid Factory.

The fact that the Super Battledroids are not painted may be a result of their new design. We know for a fact that the regular Battle Droid is at least a little more than 10 years old, since we see them in TPM. We also know that the Super Battledroid (referred to by Wat Tambor as "these new Battledroids") is new. We actually see the majority of their construction as Anakin and Padme travel through the factory. There seems to be more involved in their construction than with the regular Battledroids, who seem to be merely assembled quickly from pre-made parts.

Though we're never flat-out told, I beleive that the SBDs in the arena were supposed to be the first time they were brought out. A paint scheme for the Techno Union or any potential customer may not have been agreed upon by that point. I also think that once Obi-Wan was discovered, Dooku, Poggle, and Wat knew they needed to produce as many of these SBDs as possible. Dooku at least knew about the Clone Army...
