Other Collectibles / Re: Unleashed Discussion Thread
« on: September 30, 2003, 12:00 PM »
I'm really glad that those rumors turned out to be true.  Chewie was one of the main ones I really hoped they would make, especially before the line ends (when/if it does).  I'm interested to see what they do with Luke Hoth and the Clonetrooper as well.  Great news!  Wish there was some pictures, but soon I guess :).

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Do you eat your fruits and vegetables?
« on: September 30, 2003, 09:39 AM »
I actually majored in this sort of stuff in college (although I don't work in it now)...so I should be better than I am.  I actually eat pretty healthy (avoiding fast food, balanced diet for the most part), but I have never been a big veggie eater.  I get lots of fruit, there are very few that I don't like...but there are so few vegetables that I can eat.  I really wish that I liked salads, the ones my wife gets when we eat out look tasty, but I just don't like them for some reason :)

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: ANIMATED cartoon CW figures coming?
« on: September 30, 2003, 09:32 AM »
I'm not sure what it is about these, but I like them too.  Like said above, the articulation looks kind of iffy, but I guess I can live with that since it will be a limited line most likely.  I just like the "cartoony" look of them, more in line with the show, and something different for those who want to collect them.  If I am able to find them, I think I will pick them up...and I might actually pass on the other Clone Wars line in favor of this one now.  I hope they do a few more figures though, particularly a Yoda and Clonetrooper, etc.  I'd really like to see the main focuses of the cartoon (whoever they are), get made as well.  I agree with those who have said, this is what they should have done with this line all along, with the exception of the Clonetrooper 3-packs, which are great in their own right.

let's see how long it lasts before you have all the fellowship characters hidden in the house

Actually, my wife has been pretty great about everything.  She has seen both of the figures, and although she thinks that our house is full enough with Star Wars alone...she didn't throw a stink when I picked up these figures.  Now, if I decided to collect nearly the whole line like with Star Wars, that might be more of a problem ;).  But, we don't have the room for that anyways.  For now it will be strictly Star Wars, and maybe a handful of LOTR figures....let's hope that lasts ;D

Saga '02-'04 / Re: First Look at Jabba at GH
« on: September 29, 2003, 05:00 PM »
Someone at the RS forums posted this new pic of Jabba, which is a little bit clearer, that was originally posted at 4-inches.com...whew.  Anyways, I haven't gotten my Insider yet, so I don't know if this is the same picture or not, thought I'd post if anyone was interested:

I was curious which of the figures lines (if any, or all) from Clone Wars that you are thinking about, or currently collecting?  I had first planned to collect these figures as I see them in the stores only, and actually saw my first basic CW figure this weekend (Anakin only).  I had already bought a Screen Scene and Hoth Han, so I ended up skipping it for now...plus, Anakins never seem too tough to find.  Anyways, now with the announcement of the animated line (which I am kind of excited to see), are you going to wait and collect only that line?  Are you going to collect only the current Clone Wars line of product (which I believe is done by the end of the year or so?), or both (or none)?  I was just curious.  I have been thinking about holding off for the animated line, but since they are a Target exclusive, they may be tough to find, we'll see.  Just looking for opinions...can't wait for the cartoon "micro-series" to start.

I've watched the trailer a few times today now, and this just looks incredible.  I have been very impressed with all of the LOTR movies so far, and unfortunately they are leading me into collecting the toy line as well :).  I can't wait until this hits theatres.  Behind Star Wars, I really think this is my favorite movie saga of all time (Indy Jones is up there too).  The story these movies tell is just amazing, a great credit to Tolkien.  I've never read the books, but I really want to now.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Anyone Use Entertainment Earth for Preorders?

I am skeptical now about pre-ordering anything, because I don't want to have to wait and wait for stuff after putting money down on things.

That is exactly what I have been thinking.  I had preordered a lot of stuff this year, and I am just now starting to receive it.  I would sooner find it in stores, but I really don't want to miss out on the figures coming in late 2003/early 2004.  Its tough to know what to do, and how well we will be able to find things next year.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Screen Scenes: first wave vs. the second wave
« on: September 29, 2003, 12:25 PM »
I found the second Jedi Council set this weekend (along with the 2nd War Room, but I haven't gotten either of these yet, since these are all $20 a pop).  I have a question for those of you who have found any of these sets, is there a way to open them without trashing the boxes?  I am a 100 percent opener, but for some reason I haven't opened these sets yet, because I just think they display really well in the boxes.  However, because of space and the fact I want to open them, I'd like to crack them open and put them together to display them better.  Also, on the subject of seeing the second sets.  Do you think we will ever see the first sets again?  I was thinking about picking up the second war room the next time I see it, but I'd want to have the first one to go with it :).

Saga '02-'04 / Re: How Goes the Hunt?
« on: September 29, 2003, 10:21 AM »
Went shopping this weekend, had a little bit of luck:

Saw both sets of screen scenes (#2s), picked up the Jedi Council one.  Being $20 a piece, couldn't talk the Mrs. into getting both this time.  Also picked up a Hoth Han (the figure I wanted most this year).  These were both at Target.  This Target also had CW Anakin (just about picked it up, haven't decided yet if I want these), Research Droids, Flying R2, Lama Su, and some Red Clones (original 4/23 ones)

Also: I guess I had a pretty good week...also received my Unleashed (Yoda, Han, Boba) from Kebco (I think these are amazing), a Rohan Armor Legolas from KBToys, picked up a Smeagol at TRU, and should receive my 12" scale Yoda and Saga POC Boba Fett today from Kebco.  I guess that's how it goes, you don't find anything for months and months, and then everything hits all at once!  Too much money spent this week, although much of it has been spread out since I preordered these awhile ago.  Good luck to everyone on their searches!

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Retail 2004: How Do You Think It Will Be?
« on: September 29, 2003, 10:18 AM »
I'm still trying to decide whether or not to go ahead and preorder upcoming waves of figures, or hope to find them at retail.  Although retail has gotten a little better around here lately, I don't live in a town with any Wal-Marts, Targets, TRU, etc., and have to drive 30 to 40 miles to find them.  My wife and I usually go on the weekends, and I have had decent luck lately (found screen scenes 2 this weekend, and finally a Hoth Han!), but I can't be there when they open at 8 to find the latest figures.  I would prefer to shop at retail, but I definitely don't want to miss out on these 2004 offerings, they look like some of the best figures yet.  Are any of you taking your chances with retail from now on?

Well, I just thought I'd post that I got my first two Lord of the Rings figures this past weekend...Rohan Armor Legolas, and "bendy" Smeagol.  I know I will never have large collections like many of you, since I don't have the $$ or space after Star Wars collecting, but I was really happy to get these figures.  However, I now find myself wanting more and more of them, I could see how this line could become addicting.  I got my Legolas via KBToys.com (the shrine of LOTR lately it seems), and I picked up the Smeagol at a TRU.  I had a choice between the bendy version and the new ROTK "super articulated" version, and at the time, I just decided to get the bendy version.  I hope I didn't make a mistake, but I'm sure there will be other chances to pick the other one up if I regret it.  Next I'd like to find a Gandalf, Aragorn, and Frodo.  My wife isn't too crazy about me collecting these, but I figured I'd just sneak them in little by little :)  Anyways, just thought I'd post to say I have actually joined the LOTR collectors now  :P

The Prequel Trilogy / New Spoilers at TF.N
« on: September 26, 2003, 12:47 PM »
TheForce.net posted some new spoilers from their "insider" Darth Friday.  Some of these are pretty interesting, and pretty big....including talk of a death of a major character.  Even though this is the spoiler thread, I figured I'd post the link by itself just to be safe.  As always, we should probably take these with several grains of salt, but its interesting discussion none the less.  Also, if this should be merged with the other spoiler thread, I'm sorry... I wasn't sure if that was the "definitive" one or not.

Welcome to the Planet
