I caught myself helping to ruin a perfectly good topic about debt by getting wrapped up in arguing with Dressel, and remembered why I registered here in the first place.

So I'll try to make more quality posts here and vent all that nonsense over at the scum...


That's awesome!

To JediDefender you are welcomed, yes.

Politics here, we discuss not.  Stay at Rebelscum, the debt arguments must.

Who's the bomb?



My favorite from the article was when she declined an order of buffalo wings, gravely stating "I don't eat buffalo."

Where on the buffalo might the wings be hiding?  Buffalo fly now.

Evidently, she's not that huge of a celebrity either, in addition to not being incredibly bright.  I never even heard of her until I entered this thread just now.

That's 13 more than I've seen, Chewie.   :P  I expect (hope) there will be a big drop of these around X-Mas time.


And 12 more than me!  And believe me, I hunt for star wars a LOT.

Thanks to RS's Darth Schitzo for giving me the heads up on the one clone 3 pack I DID find!

I just got back from Target and there were so many Rambo Yodas and Anakins, that if they marked them all down to $1 I think it would still take 6 months to get rid of them all.

Anyone think the value packs spoiled us silly?

The display, in relation to the figure in the pictures, looks like it would be a really tight fit on a standard card.  Ephant Mon weighs as much as a pound of roast beef, but he's compact.

Even so, barechested Darth Maul and Amanaman, both of which can be seeen at all TRUs that I go to for $4.98 on clearance, were hardly deluxe figures to start with as well.  

But if push came to shove, I'd pay it for Riekken.  He's too cool to pass up.

Was Kitik Keedkak ever actually produced or did it just end with the prototype skirted praying mantis we all saw pictures of?

I know the cantina set was canceled, but I wonder if it's just that they were produced then the stores didn't want them, or if they were never produced at all.

I'd take a Kitik  :'(

If you can get them for $10/each on eBay, I say go for it.  This 2 pack is worth $10 anyhow since it's 2 figures @ $5/each x2 = $10.

Most people really need to hunt a ton of Wally's to find these anyhow.  My WalMart didn't even have the display left, and the manager said that the clone 2 packs were "all sold out" and that they weren't getting anymore.  So I went up and down every aisle in the toy department and the bicycle area and found EIGHT of these value packs lying around here and there, in bins, behind other toys, on the floor.  And this is after being told they didn't have any.   My advice is if you don't see a display, just hunt every aisle I think you may find one or two.

But if that doesn't work, $10 on eBay is still a pretty good price, particularly for the ARC/white clone 2 pack, but not so bad for the other 2 either.

With green clone seargents heading up a squad of 10 clonetroopers, 1 out of every 10 of your clones should have green stripes.

Hasbro has only released the green clone squatting in the 3 packs, not very good for army building.

My answer is the red clone captain repainted.

I used Utrecht Cadmium Green acrylic paint and a clear coat of varnish to make it shiny.

Yeah I thought so too, it is not like their arms are falling off or they were constanly falling over...funny there were no spring mechanisms or anything like that in them either.

I want to find a nice ballcap type head for a Garouf Lafoe

I also think the alien type guys would just be good background filler

2 ideas:

1.  Cut the sideflaps off of the SAGA endor trooper helmet.

2.  Snap the hat off of the EI Naboo Guard and paint it green.

Hey JediMac-

I found all of these at a NY Wal Mart tonight scattered all over the toy aisle, there was no display.  But initially they come in a cardboard display that you can hang on an endcap.

The card is the size of 2 SAGA cards side by side, but all one piece.  You can separate them with a scissor of blade of some kind, but it's not meant to be that way.

The white clone, yellow, and blue, are all simply repaints of the SAGA red clone.  But the cool thing is the whole pack is just $4.77

I found a total of 6 value packs tonight but left 2 of them there because the clones had awful paint jobs.  The 4 that I bought were pretty nice.

Thanks.  That's not the completed diorama by any means though, that's just some of the completed figures.  The diorama is going to have trees, bushes, and the Dresselians popping out of holes and tunnels knocking of scored of stormies.

The head came from a mold of RS's Scoundrel, he used it in his Irofuci the Dresselian custom.  I got the heads from him, made the cloaks from microfiber towels and employed my Oral Surgery suturing technique, and scrounged up some well articulated bodies from other lines like GI Joe and World Peacekeepers.

I'll post the completed diorama in the coming weeks.

Don't mess with Dresselians  :D
