Saga Collection '06 / Re: Cool Kid Collectors
« on: July 29, 2005, 05:20 PM »
Ya know, I had a similar experience yesterday at Target. I was waiting for the slow ass employees to get an Evolutions set for me (I'm selling it to Vator), and a 9 or 10 year old walks up. He picked up the last Mustafar Anakin and a Clone Trooper and saw that I had another Mustafar Anakin and a Bacara in my hand.

He asked if I was a big fan of Star Wars, to which I replied, "Yeah, it's pretty cool." He then asked if I was waiting on the guys to bring out newer figures, and I said I was waiting for an Anakin Evolution set. He asked what that was, so I told him what all was in it, as well as the price, and he said "cool!" When the employee came out, he brought out the entire case. It had three sets left (I snagged one on Tuesday), I picked up one for Vator, and the kid picked up the second to last. Just as I was leaving, another kid, probably around 5 or 6, came up with his dad and got the last set, saying "Neat, two good guys and a bad guy!".

So it's good to see that kids are still into the line, although there aren't enough for Hasbro to claim that kids drive the line.

EDIT: Chewie, I also heard a lot of kids asking about Luke on 4/2. They dug through the pegs asking "Where's Luke, where's Han," etc. I informed them that there wouldn't be a Luke or Han in this packaging, and they all went "Lame, I'm sick of that hunchback Luke!" and bought lightsabers instead. Funny stuff.

This game looks incredible. Like Empire Earth, but with Star Wars. And wow, those graphics!  :o

I'm still wondering though, will you have to make civilians to gather resources for you to build the machines? You have to do that in Empire Earth, and it would make the game a bit more realistic, IMO.

I think Maul's cloak was sculpted with Colman in mind! :o

I'm hearing rumors of a variation in the Anakin Evolution set. Something about painted/unpainted scars on the ROTJ anakin head. Can anyone confirm this?

FINALLY found a new wave today, the Bacarra wave. I bought Bacarra, Crispy Anakin (possible trade fodder), and another #6 Clone.

I've been buying figs since early 1997 (got my first POTF2 figs in late 96), and collecting since AOTC came out in 2002. I went on a hiatus after TPM came out, as no stores had any SW figures. Plus, I finally found the HTF Darth Maul, so I felt "complete." I started getting an interest again in early 2002, but didn't start buying figs again until AOTC came out.

So we're going on 6 1/2 years buying figs (excluding my hiatus in 00-02) and 3 years collecting. :)

I'm glad we're getting ROTS, but I'll hold out on the sets for now. I just wish Clone Wars Volume 2 was coming out with ROTS though.

Anyone know the Target DCPI #s?

Matt, keep a look out for a Mini ARC for me too! ;D

These all dried up long ago. I've seen them at an online Lego store for $5, but I haven't felt like ordering one yet. I suppose I'll crack and get one if Matt can't find one. :P

Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS Gunship - Where the hell is it?!
« on: July 26, 2005, 07:20 PM »
I'm exactly like you, Valin. Never got the other two, and I have only seen the ROTS Gunship once at Wally World.

I'd really like one now, since I have a Clone army now.  :)

I tried the Evo # and 500th Vader # at a Target today and they both worked fine.

Maybe your Target is about to reset? I know they all are, but the resets may be happening in your area first...

I got an email from Sony today.

Since I'm part of their Gamer Advisory Panel they send me offers to beta test future online games. Today they sent me an invitation to beta test BF2. So what did I do? I accepted of course!

More updates soon, they'll be emailing me soon about the test kits.

**** yeah, thanks for the DCPI numbers, Jeff!

I was able to get an Anakin set from the back with the help of the nicest Target employee I've ever encountered. Make sure to have the DCPI number handy if you go.

Opening the set after I post this, will edit with thoughts later.
