Watto's Junk Yard / Re: How many of us are musicians?
« on: February 21, 2004, 08:58 PM »
Lots of great replies in this thread.    

I am a keyboardist and synth enthusiast.  I took piano lessons for a few years as a child and got involved in electronic music production in my teens.  Currently, I help write jingles and filler music for local radio stations, etc.  I enjoy what I do and the experience I've gained has been great, but it's not something I want to do the rest of my life.  However, music will always have a place in my life.  :)        

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: 2004 DVD Release List

No pictures of the artwork or anything yet, and curiously, no mention of which version of the films we'll be getting. . .

They will probably be Lucas' "definitive" versions of the films, the special editions.   Ugh.  

BTW, is there any truth in the rumors about these DVD's being special-special editions?  I heard that Lucas was going to tweak the special editions to accommodate the PT.

Here's a pic (from a recent eBay auction):

It looks pretty nice.

Thanks for posting that link.  I really enjoyed the Youth Ad best.

Way to go, Dubya.   ::)  

We're spending billions in Iraq, billions in Afghanistan, billions in tax cuts that cater to the wealthy, so why not spend billions in space?  Screw the fact that schools around this country could use extra funds, and screw the fact that the amount of money that is being spent could put a great number of Americans through college.  Let's go to Mars...

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Jimmy Smits' height
« on: December 23, 2003, 03:48 PM »
Jimmy Smits is 6' 3".  How tall is the actor that played Rieekan?  I always thought Rieekan was the same height as Han/Harrison Ford (who is 6' 1").  

Okay, here's the deal.  According to the official SW site, Rieekan is listed as being 1.8 meters tall, which makes him approximately 5' 11".  Rieekan (Bruce Boa) is 4 inches shorter than Bail (Jimmy Smits).  :)

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Vintage Style Figures from Hasbro???
« on: December 16, 2003, 09:25 AM »
Some of the reaction at Scum's vintage section is a bit snobbish...  The reactions to the announcement aren't the problem so much as the reactions of people who simply don't want to see "outsiders" enter their beloved vintage section.

They have a # there who seem to do nothing but look down on customizers and modern collectors (-Dane- in particular, whoever he is), and that's not cool.  

Elitism in a hobby of nothing but "geeks & dorks" is like saying you're the best urinal cake in the entire men's room.

 ;D ;D ;D

I whole-heartedly agree with you JJ.   ;)

Personally, I'd very much like to see a short run of "new" vintage figures (i.e. vintage figs of new characters; Tarkin, Dr. Evazan, Duros, etc.).

but FG had the same idea I did that it's indeed not a "perfect" figure still, and that extra ball joint at the hips would go a LONG way on this guy as well as almost any other figure.

Exactly.  It would've been nice to have seen an inner thigh ball-socket joint with this latest CT fig.  Still, it is a great figure.  Hasbro has finally realized that loads of articulation on an army builder is a good thing.  It's a shame that it's not a standard.

At the current time, my favorite figs are:

Vintage: Yoda
POTF2: Max Rebo
POTJ: 300th Fett
Episode 1: Rune Haako
Saga: Ephant Mon

I'm also very fond of McFarlane's Predator Hunter figure.
