Saga Collection '06 / Future Waves/Themes
« on: August 26, 2005, 03:19 AM »
I looked around for a thread like this, couldn't find any, so I thought since I'm bored, I'd throw out some ideas on future themes Hasbro could do beyond the ones we know.  I figure 8 waves isn't all we're going to get next year, so:

Clone Wars Wave: I thought this might be a lot of fun, continuing in the realistic style.

New figs:

Scuba Trooper (SA, of course)
Tatooed Vision Quest Anakin w/ removable hand(s)
Superior SA Obi in Clone Armor

Repacks/rehashes:

Snow Bunny Padme (easy enough, all Hasbro has to do is take the Droid Factory Chase Padme and doll her up)
Ithorian Jedi
Snow Yoda (just add hood)
Red ARC Trooper (blue, too)

And in case they don't get to Cody in the Coruscant wave:

Battle of Utapau:

New figs:
Commander Cody (what a shock)
Commander Fox (or whoever he is - funky helmet guy)
Little Utapau Dudes 2 pack
Utapau Minister (royal guard looking tall guy)

Repacks/Rehashes:
SA Clone (Utapau colors)
Pilot Obi (why not)
Nute Gunray (ROTS style)

Star Wars Action Figures / Spuff's Simple (Lame) Obi Armor Custom
« on: August 23, 2005, 10:34 PM »
So I bought the Jedi/Sith Battle Pack, but didn't like the Obi Armor version included.  I made a new out of an AT TE Gunner and the simplest head swap ever:



Sorry for the lame pic, but I used my scanner since I don't have a camera.  For as simple as it was, I kind of like it.   :)

Watto's Junk Yard / Need Help File Formatting Thingy
« on: August 13, 2005, 01:59 AM »
I have a weird request.  Does anyone know how to do what they're asking me to do here:

http://www.strangehorizons.com/guidelines/fiction-formatting-detail.shtml#Convert_To_Text

I, for the life of me, cannot seem to do this right.  It's become such a hassle as to not be worth it, but it is, so if anyone is familiar with this, and if they had a few spare minutes, would any one be willing to convert the file I have to the specs they're asking for?  I know I seem like a wimp, and I am.

Thanks,

Darb

Watto's Junk Yard / Doing Research
« on: June 27, 2005, 11:04 PM »
Is there any one here at JD who has experience or knowledge of being in the National Guard?  Especially concerning deployment in Iraq?  I'm writing a story about this, and I want to make sure I have all the details right.  A lot of the information my grandad left from WW2 doesn't seem to apply here, and I don't know anyone in the Guard presently, so any help would be appreciated.

I just have a few questions.  Hope someone can help.

Thanks a lot,

Darb

Spuff needs C3 money, and thus I must come to pass with things I no longer desire:

MOC Toy Fair 2002 Vader: What's fair for this?  I'm thinking $100 shipped.  ???  LMK if this is right.

UPDATE: Sold to ruiner.   :)

Watto's Junk Yard / Holy Crap, I Published A Book
« on: April 1, 2005, 01:19 AM »
I've sold my first short story!   :o  Read about it here.  I'm so excited.  Finally, all that hard work is paying off.  Now if I can just get this book sold... been close a few times, but no joy.  I guess if I keep banging on the door, they gotta let me in sometime.  Or maybe they'll just call the cops.   ;)

Revenge of the Sith / The Full 56
« on: March 11, 2005, 04:27 AM »
HOLY.  ****.

First we got the trailer.  Now we get a look at all 56 ROTS figs.  Obi Wan Pilot (thank you Hasbro).  Tarkin.  Wookie Warrior (with shield!!!).  Clones.  Wonderful clones.  Crispy Anakin.  SP aliens.  Weirdo aliens. 

I couldn't be more excited.   ;D

Revenge of the Sith / Holo Yoda?
« on: March 4, 2005, 04:36 PM »
Are they insane?

I wonder if this is just NYC TRU, and not all over.  Talk about taking advantage of your customers.   ::)

Modern Classifieds / Need LIVE STRONG bracelet
« on: October 14, 2004, 03:24 PM »
THe Lance Armstrong foundation adult size yellow bracelet. I can't find one, and Ebay seems a bit out of control at the moment.  Any one have one they'd be willing to drop a dollar in a jar for Spuffy for?

Original Trilogy Collection / Spuffy's Dorme Dream Come True?
« on: October 2, 2004, 06:28 PM »
http://www.rebelscum.com/article.asp?i=59710

Looks like Hasbro may slip Dorme into the line through a head swap.  It wouldn't be accurate (she was only in AOTC) but it would be fine by me.   :)
