Watto's Junk Yard / Your Favorite Character in the Saga?
« on: July 8, 2003, 01:14 PM »
I'm sorry if this has been posted another time, I took a quick glance and didn't see anything recent, so I thought I'd start a thread.  My question is, who is your favorite character in this Star Wars world we all enjoy so much?  If you have troubles narrowing it down to one, list as many as you want, rank them in your preference, whatever you want to do.  I just thought it might be interesting to see everyone's favorites.  Mine are probably not all that "original", but here's my favorites:

1. Han Solo (all-time favorite, my fave as a kid, and it continues today)
2. Yoda (really close to my overall favorite, Attack of the Clones made him even cooler in my opinion)
3. Chewbacca (gotta like the Wookiee, plus, he's Han's homeboy) :P

Honorable mention to Luke (particularly in Jedi, I remember thinking he was pretty cool when I was a kid), as well as Boba Fett (not ultra original I know, but come on, he is pretty cool-looking) :)

Saga '02-'04 / Preordering....
« on: June 30, 2003, 12:59 PM »
With us finally seeing some pics of more new stuff to come this year, it got me to thinking...those of you who preorder, do you just go ahead and preorder everything now, or do you "wait and see" if things will show up?  I still haven't seen anything new around here since December of 2002, and I know many others have had the same troubles, and I have preordered Hoth Han, Mynock Chewie, Throne Room Luke & Vader, the Youngling Packs, and the Snowtrooper from Kebco (as well as the Han/Yoda/Boba Unleashed wave and the upcoming 6" Yoda).  Anyways, I guess I always think "things will start showing up...maybe around the time Clone Wars come out", but I'm really starting to wonder anymore.  Have many of you ordered anything and everything that is up for preorder (up to the new Emperor, the Nightclub figures, and the Screen Scenes), or are you "waiting it out" to some extent?

Modern Classifieds / WTB: Trash Compactor Set 1 (Han and Luke)
« on: June 20, 2003, 04:42 PM »
I have only been able to find the Leia/Chewie TC set, and I would really like to pick up the Han/Luke set if anyone has an extra one around them for retail + shipping?  I know these weren't easy to find for anyone, but I just thought I'd check and see if someone out there was lucky and found one.  Box condition doesn't matter too much to me, I'm an opener...however I would like to have the box too :). Thanks!

A post by Jesse James regarding how Hasbro should eventually have an ultimate versions line (with main characters...great idea by the way), got me to thinking.  Are there any figures out there that any of you feel are pretty close to the "ultimate"?  I know almost all figures can always be improved on, whether it be the sculpt, the painting, the articulation, or the accessories....but I was wondering if there are any figures that you think come pretty close.  I know some figures of main characters seem to be generally looked upon pretty favorably (such as Cloud City Chewie, Commtech Han, Bespin Capture Han, Bespin Luke, etc.)...are any of them "ultimate" enough for you...and if not, what would you change?  Boy, do you think I could have slipped "ultimate" in that post anymore :P

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends

Just thought I would start a thread to discuss this great line.  I just started collecting some of these (just the X-Men characters for now), and have learned quite a bit about this line from OCB.  It is the only other line I collect besides Star Wars, and like many of you, I'm not finding much of those lately.  Do many of you collect this line...what are your opinions...or anything else you want to talk about relating to the ML line.  I personally think Wolverine and Magneto are both great figures (only ones I have), and I can't wait for the Series IV Beast to be released later this year (as well as Gambit).  Anyways, I'd be happy to hear anyone's thoughts and opinions on this line.

Just thought I'd start a thread to discuss the Playskool line, sorry if it is already posted elsewhere...I'm new here :).  Personally, I really like this line.  I currently only have the Falcon and Hoth sets, but would like to eventually pick up the rest of the OT sets.  I think they are great for kids (although we don't have any yet, I'll save these for the future), but I'll have to admit I enjoy them quite a bit too.  They are just "fun", kind of how the vintage line was for me when I was a kid.  I especially enjoy the Falcon set.  I don't have room to display them, so it reminded me of my childhood having to put all of the figures in the back of the falcon...just like the old days :).  I really hope this line continues, even if it is limited...because it seems to be pretty popular.  What are your opinions on the line, or ideas for sets you think could be made?

With the way the distribution has been for many people this year, do you ever pick up something, just because you are happy to see something new....and later think "why did I get this?".  Personally, I start to consider and get some figures, etc., that I'm not sure I would have gotten if it wasn't for the big lulls.  I personally haven't seen any 2003 figures around here yet, but I did order (and pre-order) a few online.  Awhile back Kebco had some of the earlier 2003 figures (Obi-Wan, Tyrannus, Padme) on sale, so I ordered a few...but now looking at them, I'm not sure if I needed the Acklay Obi, or the Flex Mace.  This happened last year once in awhile as well, which is why I have GR Mace, Deluxe Anakin w/ Geonosian, etc.  Anyways, has this ever happened to you?

I have visited the forums a few times over here, but just joined up today.  It looks like you have a great community over here, and I want to thank OCB for letting me know about it.  Some of you may have seen me posting over at GH from time to time (and I used to be on RS), but I am happy to be part of this great community...so....Hello!
