Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

Because I have no self control:



Made a mistake not finishing off my 12 backs a few years ago when prices were cheap. Now i"m paying for it. Still I'm committed to trying to get the last remaining ones I need - just four now: Obi-Wan, DS Commander, Sand People and Vader - under $500 each. We'll see. But off to a great start with a great deal on a really good Chewie. He's got a dent on the top of the bubble but he's all right with me.

Great score Nick. I've been meaning to pick him up, along with Sise, and like all the other pieces I've dithered on (like, I don't know, 12 backs...) the market has lost its mind.

Jason I'm toying with a few options on displaying them. I wanted to put the A-Wing with my Skiff, which is in a smaller display case where I kind of keep my 'neato' stuff. Won't exactly fit though with some of the other things in there so I need to make some adjustments. Right now besides the boxed skiff I have a MIB Palitoy Jedi AT-ST Walker, Regal Jawa, and an amazingly minty Kenner plush Chewie. Kind of filled up.

Trouble... trouble again...



Huge THANKS to Jason (CorranHorn) for helping me close a pretty big hole in my collection. Been looking for the DROIDS A-Wing for a very long time, and the Side Gunner and ATL Interceptor too. Very happy to finally add these to my collection!

If it's the title it's a working title and like all the others it will probably change. For me it's not particularly strong, but we'll see.

As far as Obi-Wan, I think there's a couple angles. One is ageing Ewan McGregor via make up or CGI. A combo of the two would probably get close to Alec Guinness. I like the holocron idea, but another option would be just having him 'de-age.' Lucas opened the door on this by having Hayden Christensen appear in ROTJ. The only explanation for this is the Jedi somehow have the power to 'regress' in the Force, or appear as they want to. This would be ok with me.

Wanted to share my latest acquisition and definitely one for the ages for my collection: DT Luke. Huge thanks to Bill McBride for setting me up with this one. I've been hunting for this for a long time. Never thought I'd make it back to him. My brother and I had one from the EB set as kids. I remember carrying around the empty chute forever after we lost the extending part. Not this time!



Lightsaber sounds!

They couldn't price any of that into the retail set? Wha?

Very excited for all these, especially the Jedi Temple Guard. Very cool to see Hasbro keeping CW alive even if it's one figure here and there. The Royal Guard will be very interesting - soft goods or no? The AT-DP Pilot is probably my favorite design so far from Rebels so good to see him.

57
A lot of cool stuff in here. Bossk and IG-88 especially, Wicket and the Biker Scout, but Plo Koon would be cool in this scale also. A lot of interesting pairings in here and possibilities for the future too. Not too hip on the repacks we seem to be getting, but these seem to sell.

I also expect Ewan McGregor, for a lot of reasons. Outside of some trickery, we no longer have Alec Guinness as the elder Obi-Wan. There's no way we go through all of the ST without seeing him, Yoda, and one must assume Anakin (though like Pete, I don't particularly feel strongly about Hayden Christensen, but then Lucas has already replaced Sebastian Shaw...). Ewan McGregor is on the record about being up for returning to the role. Obi Wan is one of the few solo characters who makes sense for one of these solo movies, has a built in and willing star, and would be awesome all over the place. I think this rumor about Obi-Wan's kid/grandkid could lead to some necessary cameos, and ultimately, some Obi Wan movie(s).

Ewan McGregor is pretty much the only reason the PT works. Liam Neeson was excellent as always, but if McGregor wasn't there throughout imagine how much more tedious the acting and the story would have been. He's the emotional core in a hollow series.

I really like the casting so far. There are big question marks with some of the unknowns, but that's a plus I think here. No expectations or preconceptions. Max Von Sydow however brings a lot with him and I think we all expect a villain out of him. Andy Serkis I think is wonderful so this is a HUGE plus for this movie. There will be a lot of speculation on the characters, but I think we can infer the Daisy Ridley character as Han and Leia's daughter. She looks like she could be their kid, so it makes sense (though she would be young for this; given those two character's age in this movie, really, she could be their grandchild).

I look forward to the eventual rumors on Frank Oz and Ian McDiarmid, and the eventual confirmation. A SW movie without either would beg serious questions and I don't think we've seen the last of either.

Andy Serkis is tremendous. Can't wait to see what part he plays. I assume its a mo cap part, but who knows. Very excited for all of this. Good choices all around.
