FYI, the Anakin set showed up at a newly opened Target around here last week. So they should be shipping to the rest of the Targets pretty soon...

I just wish the cloak was soft goods so he could sit with in in the starfighter, but I'm NOT complaining since everything else is VOTC quality.

Now if the red starfighters would go on clearance....

Photonovels and Movies / TSR: Voyage to Trideeno - NOW UP!
« on: July 25, 2005, 02:05 AM »
So I've been hard at work lately trying to get part 3 of TSR ready. Currently it's about halfway complete, with lack of batteries being the cause of delay. I'm hoping to have it ready by next weekend.

Big thanks to Vator for creating pictures of two primary locations in the story. :D

For now, I leave you with the usual preview shot. :)



8/2/05 - THE THIRD INSTALLMENT IS NOW UP! THE IMPERIAL REMNANT FORCES YOU TO ENJOY!!!! :D

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Battle of Death Star Wave
« on: July 25, 2005, 12:46 AM »
I thought we were getting 8 figures? If we are, get rid of the Vader and Stormtrooper in my list.

BATTLE OF DEATH STAR (8 figures):

-Stormtrooper Han; VOTC body with removeable helmet and blaster.
-Stormtrooper Luke; See above.

I think we should get just Han in Stormie duds because the last Han Stormie we got was a Froot Loops exclusive while the Luke Stormie was wide-release.

But then the Luke would look really dumb next to the superior updated Han. :P

LEGO / Re: Lego Yoda Target Give Away

I laugh at the stupidity of the auction.

I think it's the rarity of the items.

Back when they were released, there was that giant drought, and around here, all of the 2003 figs didn't start showing up until the fall. Of course, the crappiest CW figures were released first - Anakin, Yoda, and the only Wave 1 winner, the ARC Trooper. I saw the ARC once, but the other two warmed pegs for months until the 04/HOF figs began showing up. This caused retail to not order any of the Wave 2 or 3 figures, which contained the figs everyone wanted. Many people never saw them, and now eBay is their last resort. Scalpers jack up the prices, and the people pay them to complete their collections.

The same could also be said for vehicles and deluxe, which very few found.

Then again, this is just my assumption, it's probably something completely different.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Carded Wedge, finally!

Is a limited Target exclusive any more worse than an overpriced SWS.com exclusive? :P

Never sat down to watch a full episode of Trek (I find it boring), but I've heard the line many times. RIP  :'(

I wouldn't be disappointed with army builder repacks, really. I can always use more Stormies, Tuskens, etc. :)

Aw, dammit, now I have to order one. But it'll be nice to finally have a Wedge.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: 500th commemorative figure... Vader?
« on: July 21, 2005, 08:29 PM »
Went looking for one at TRU today, and an employee looked in the back but came up empty. He told me to check their website for one. Little does he know that you can't order it on Amazon.

Now I'll have to check out Wal-Mart. I'm glad its cheaper there, as I don't want to give Philip Wise TRU any extra cash.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Please, Please, No...E.T. Sequel?
« on: July 21, 2005, 07:12 PM »
I agree, why must everything have a sequel? Especially a classic movie like this?

Just passed the $1000 mark. Good thing new figures haven't been found, otherwise I would have passed that months ago...

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Battle of Carkoon Wave
« on: July 20, 2005, 08:00 PM »
How about a Sarlaac Pit playset? Would anybody else be interested in one? Nothing too big or fancy, just the big ditch with some teeth, tentacles, and the giant beak (the tentacles and beak are articulated). Also allow an area for figures to "stand."

I think this could easily be done for less thatn $30 and smaller than the Mustafar playset. And it would probably sell.

So wait, Hasbro is "nervous" about putting out a full case of clones because they think they'll clog shelves, then they green light this ****? ::)

Please, Hasbro, stop the pain. Nobody buys this ****. People want 3.75' figures and vehicles, 7' Unleashed, and Galactic Heroes for little kids. FOCUS ON THE LINES THAT SELL! >:(
