The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Dagobah is Naboo?
« on: June 7, 2003, 10:24 PM »
I guess it's entirely possible.

But this reminds me, I shouldn't be visiting these threads.  I want EIII to be the first time I see a Star Wars film without having knowledge of this kind before hand.  I ruined the experience of EI and EII with spoilers.

I'll talk to you all about the mushroom cloud over Naboo after the flick!

In the meantime, catch you in the action figure forums!


There are actually quite a few examples of Geonosians fighting in the Arena:

1.  The Geonosians that man the sonic cannons.

2.  In the defensive circle when Mace says they will not be hostages for Dooku to barter, look at the sky, there are many Geonosians surrounding the Jedi with blasters trained on them.

3.  Obi Wan fights off 1 or 2 Geonosians when he's fighting the Reek

4.  All the Geonosians that attacked Anakin and Padme in the factory

5.  Several Geonosians are seen scampering up to Jedi with either blasters or electropoles, and die for their trouble.

Still and all, Poggle did declare he was going to send his warriors to hide in the mountain, but I guess a few didn't get the message  ;)

Probably the most breathtaking thing we've seen in any Star Wars movie to date....

200 Jedi brandishing lightsabers

So, Dressel Rebel's vote goes to the Arena Battle on Geonosis.

Episode 1 / Re: Who else loves their Episode One collection?

I think the line had a lot of duds, and too many versions of the main characters.  It was a pretty decent line though because it started out with Obi Wan and Qui Gon with, for the time, was a good amount of articulation, the figures able to hold the lightsabers with 2 hands.  We got a few too many versions of Obi Wan, Qui Gon, Maul, and little Anakin for my liking.  

Power of the Jedi / Re: Best POTJ Fig?
« on: June 7, 2003, 06:42 AM »
If I'm forced to pick just one, it would have to be POTJ Sandtrooper.

But the numerous runner ups include:

Rebel Fleet Trooper (REALLY CLOSE)
Coruscant Senate Guard
Gungan Warrior
Plo Koon
Imperial officer
Mas Amedda

Ooooooh, did I spot a custom Orrimaarko first figure on the upper left side of the first photo?

I think I did!

Saga '02-'04 / Re: OK, what the.... (Nexu!?)
« on: June 7, 2003, 06:17 AM »
I just checked on my opened Nexu, it's okay.  The packaged one I have is fine too.  

It sounds like your's was assassinated by a younger cousin or brother or something.

All I have to say about this is that it must be nice to be independently wealthy.

They still need to pay for what they did to your quarter collection, I sent you 3 beauties!

Do you still need any of them?  I've got more...

Some mailman's pockets got .75 heavier that day...

Saga '02-'04 / Re: HOT prices at KB Toys!

Good call on the Gunship and Jedi Starfighter.  Also, there are great prices on custom fodder.  For example, I just ordered 4 Lott Dodds for random alien senator customs (thanks to CHEWIE for the idea for using Dodd's body for my hammerhead and walrusmen senators) and 4 SAGA Endor Rebel troopers (Dresselian rebel and endor rebel customs)...that's 8 figures for $18 shipped.  Bargain time at

Now that they have the molds for the new Evazan and Kitik Keedkak, I say throw them on a blister card!  What a waste!

Most collectors have Wuher, so no big loss there.  I never liked the first wave anyhow, I couldn't bring myself to buy 3 figures I already have.

But Kitik!  I don't think we've seen the last of her...

Hello all!

After a couple invites, Dressel Rebel has caved and joined!

Evidently JediMAC had invited me several months ago, but somehow the invite fell on deaf ears.  CHEWIE sparked my memory a couple of days ago, and here I am!  I like the idea of most of the people being here by invite only, it makes me all warm and tingly.

So, thanks for the invites JediMAC and CHEWIE, you'll be seeing me a lot around here.  I've got 9 guests over right now, the girlfriend's family is in from CA, so I'm off to dinner.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?
« on: May 18, 2003, 07:52 AM »
First, hats off to CHEWIE for inviting me here.  What's the secret handshake?   :-X

When the picture of this 3 pack first debuted, the fully standing clone was yellow.  I didn't mind having a yellow clone in this 3 pack because the yellow stripe is easily painted over with a white coat or two.  But I didn't think that was the best pose for a commander, I preferred looking through binoculars to firing a rifle, for the commander anyhow.

But now I see that the standing clone is white!  Less customizing to do now, and I think it makes for a better "troop builder" 3 pack since now you can buy 10 of these things and not have a 2:1 ratio of grunts:commander.
