Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Lord of the Rings

 ;D  I was in #2.  We had to wait in that huge line until midnight so another movie could let out.  Lots of people were cutting, and there was no room to breathe.  But it was worth it, once we got inside.

ROTK is the best of the three, one of the best films of all time, but probably ten minutes too long.  Of course I'll be waiting for four hours of it on the DVD, so I think I'll have to see it again to know if it was just the late night fatigue.  So many great things to look forward to on the DVD, since A LOT was left out, some of which is visible in the trailer and on the TTT preview.

Cheap indeed.  I wasn't planning on buying this anyway, but wow.  This sucks for you guys who were.  If it's for real.

I agree with Jesse that consistency is Hasbro's biggest blindspot in the modern line.  Whether it's articulation or sculpting, the pendulum swings too much for many of us.

This will certainly be interesting, however it turns out.  Like many others, I will only be interested if it's vintage style figs Kenner never did, like the aforementioned Tarkin, Slave Leia, Stormtrooper Han et al.  I'd also be hip to PT vintage style figs (Maul and Padme!) but that's it.  No re-issues, and no re-issues with added articulation.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Your Best of 2003 (So Far)

With all the 2003 stuff out that's going to be out, I'd thought I'd decree which ten figs Spuffy thought best exemplified SW this year.  Plus, I'm bored.   ;)


1) Super Articulated Clone Trooper.  'Nuff said.
2) Obi Wan Kenobi Nightclub.  Best Obi ever.
3) Yoda/Chian.  Maybe the best value this year.
4) Wat Tambor.  Classic SW alien coolness.
5) Obi Wan Kamino Showdown.  2nd best Obi ever.
6) Padme Droid Factory Chase.  Once you swap heads.
7) Bail Organa.  Basic no nonsense POTJ style figure, with great accessory.
8 Hoth Han.  Imperfect, but still a great fig.
9) Coleman Trebor.  Same reason as Wat Tambor.
10) Jedi Council Screen Scenes.  They finished the council with great figs.

Honorable mentions: Anakin SC, ARC Trooper, Ashla/Jempa, Poggle, Clone Army builders.

The pics are fantastic.  The Faramir especially, since I'll be able to make a custom armored Boromir from him.  The Witch King looks like he might share parts from the FOTR one, not sure.  Merry is great, and The King of the Dead reminds for some reason of the knight from The Last Crusade.

Good choice.   ;D

I got the Boromir bundle a while back.  Definitely worth it.  The only fig I'm still looking for is Gandalf the White.

I think the EP1 Obi Wan, Qui Gon, and Maul all deserve figs with as much articulation as the SA Clone; maybe in a few years we'll have the desire again for EP2 SA versions of Dooku, Obi, and Anakin.  And a Mace that does not suck, too.   ;)

If I had room I'd be all over this thing.  I just don't have room for one more thing.  The doors are bursting at the seams with toys!   :o

Other Toy Lines / Re: What is Your Favorite Figure "Scale"?
« on: December 8, 2003, 07:51 PM »
I totally agree.  If the LOTR figs were 3 3/4, they would be even more popular than they are now.  I remember Toy Biz flirted with the idea before committing to the present scale, but felt the hobbits would be too diminutive in the SW scale.  Obviously Play along didn't think so.

I do like the 6" scale, though, and many of the LOTR figs, Marvel Legends, etc., are fantastic.

James, Getting Away With It... Live.  A great parting shot from a truly underrated and underappreciated band.
