The Original Trilogy / Re: Rebel Uniforms
« on: November 5, 2003, 08:47 AM »
Watching ESB last night, I came up with a question that hopefully somebody with some Expanded Universe knowledge or a keener eye than mine can answer...

How many branches of Military does the Rebellion have? How many were represented on Hoth?


Also since we know George Lucas liked to make the SW Universe look "used", can anybody help me pin=point the actual stuff they used to make the Typical Front Line Hoth Rebel. I can easily tell the Rifle is Modified MP43/Stg44, but what about the boots, pants, jackets, vests, caps etc. Are they all made specifically for the movie or did they snag them from the Norwegian Army during filming? I figure I have 355 days till the next Halloween Party I have to attend so I may put one together.....ok who are we kidding, I'm gonna just wear it while I have the A/C turned down to 42 and watch ESB next time the wife and kiddo are out of town...

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Galaxies: Who's in? Who's out? Who cares?
« on: August 9, 2003, 08:37 AM »
Ok I need some serious Galaxies help.

I got a mission from a guy that he wanted me to escort his friend from one city to the other.  I cross the great desert all the way to another CITY. (I guess I could have flown, but I am a Newbie to this type of game)  So anyway I get there, I meet the guy, start running back to the other city with this guy tagging along and of course some Rabid Gopher kills me DEAD.  Now I can't find the guy and I can' take on more than 1 mission at a time because of it.  I've gone to my data pad to activate the Waypoint, but it just sends me to the original guy who gave me the mission and he just yells at me.

So can I just "quit" a mission or cancel it or something.  Or how do I find the lost person I am suppossed to escort.


I'd hate to just start a new character, I finally got this guy  real close to where I want him headed and I have 60 Rebel Faction Points..which it took me forever to figure out how to do that.

If they would just make Close Combat:Galactic Civil War I'd be able to do alot better......But I want to give this a try.

Ok the gamecube bundle is $130 at my local TRU (oddly they didn't have ANY Figures)  is that the best price around?

And is Rogue Squadron II available already, I know we have to wait for III.

Just a thought on the Hoth Uniforms on the Bridge Crew.  Leia wore here Hoth Uniform sans Vest and Boots on Bespin when she wasn't in the dress.

I am watching ESB right now is why I thought of it...

I can see we are going to need to do a breakdown of Uniforms from each movie just to get the Catagories down, then blend in some EU...

Oh, I have a life, but a man's gotta have a hobby right?  This one doesn't require a helmet, a license and doesn't leave oil spots in the Garage...

I've also always wondered if the Outfit that Luke wears at Bespin in ESB was a Rebel Uniform.  It seems Luke was actually in the Rebel Army/Navy/Air Force.  Mercenaries aren't usually given command of flight groups.  Sure his Uniform was a bit different from everybody else on Hoth, but still within standards.

I agree that the Mon Calamari could also be a specific uniform to their Species/Planet.  Obviously it would be difficult to have 1 standard uniform for an Army that has Hundreds of Species.....

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Check Hasbro NOW
« on: August 8, 2003, 05:21 PM »
The Rebel Trooper looks very POTF2 Rebel Fleet Trooperish, like they let an Intern do it.    His chest looks wider than the POTF2 Version...

But all that aside, I'll buy cases of him, so I guess I shouldn't complain too much.

And my only other complaint is that Luke seems to be leaning...why is everybody leaning lately?  Is this Hasbro's new thing?  Nobody stood up straight?

Oh well he looks awesome otherwise.  I too am stoked by all these figures, so don't think this is a Complaint thread, just a begger trying to be a chooser.

The General is something I have wanted since the 80's, I always thought that Collar was cool.  

I will agree that the Escape Pod rocks but a True-Scale one would have been even better.

I was about to abandon the modern figures for the vintage ones, but this may keep me in the modern stuff for a bit longer.

I am going to order "opener" cases from either EE or Newforce as soon as they list them.  If anybody wants in let m know, we can settle up after they arrive.

Well this is a topic I can get into so if you need help building a database let me know.

Another Idea I was pondering is that perhaps the reason we see so many differences is that the in the Galactic Civil War, it is much like our own.

During the Early Part of the war when the South had all the Various State "Militias" as units (and before any DEPOT decided to start making any Uniform) you saw anything from the High Polish and Guilded Uniforms of the Virginians to the Homespun "uniforms" of the Texas Volunteers.

I may have to buy a West End Games Sourcebook just to look at the pictures...

The Original Trilogy / Rebel Uniforms
« on: August 7, 2003, 09:13 PM »
Ok this will probably require some EU or West End Games Knowledge or just some good old guessing..

The uniform we see Lando Wearing as a General and the uniform we see Crix Madine wearing in ROTJ seems to be a "Duty" uniform.  Is that a Rebel Navy uniform or a Rebel Army Uniform.  Also does the Rebellion have different branches like the Empire does?

During the Trilogy we see Rebel Officers wearing the New Hope Khaki/Browns with belted tunics and caps or in the Capt. Antilles uni on the Tantive IV.

In ESB you can't really count the Uni's there because they all have on Extreme Weather Gear.

ROTJ we see the previously mentioned Madine/Lando Unis, the Fatigues worn by the Commando's, even some different uni's worn by members at the briefing.

I was just trying to figure out if the Rebels had the 4 required classes of Uniforms or not. Or were even structured to do so.  I am going to have to start reading more sources.  

I know by the Time the New Republic Rolls around they have Dress Uniforms that when described in the books sound Very Dissimilar to what Madine/Lando wore, leading me to believe that what they had on was Battle Dress and not "walking out" dress.

Ok guys help me out, I have a PS2 and it is used more as an emergency DVD player than a Game Console,...........

Is a GameCube worth it so just so I can play Rogue Squadon?  I mean I assume they have the EA Sports games too right?  I really don't know the difference in the 3 major consoles, but know that with RS III and a price drop coming, I could easily be swayed.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Bossk?
« on: August 6, 2003, 08:53 AM »
Ok, I can't be 100% positive, but I watched the Palace Scenes and Barge Scenes on Super Slow and ZOOMed In at certain times as well on the Widescreen Version and could not find Bossk anywhere.  There is a Creature that looks like him, but does not have his uniform on.

Dengar is all over the place though.  There are some real good shots of him (without backpack) from all angles as well.

Add that to my search for a PruneFace in Endor and my wife was really confused why I was watching the movie in Slowmotion, standing or at times kneeling in front of the TV....

The Original Trilogy / A New Hope on TBS this week
« on: August 5, 2003, 07:28 PM »
A NEW HOPE is going to be on TBS this week.  I know we all have it in Several Forms on VHS (If you count Original Release, Cleaned UP Release, Special Edition Formatted and Special Edition WideScreen) and we won't talk about some of us "Older" guys who have or have had it on BETA or LaserDisc or are old enough to even know what those are...

But it is still cool to see it on TV....the other neat thing is except for Time there is NO reason that Censors would edit any part of it.

Check the listings, I think it is Sunday Night.

In the action figure book ( I think it is Steve Sansweets, I don't have it in front of me) there is a picture of Jabba on his Throne and there in the Back Row far left is Bossk, right next to Boba Fett.  So he was "on the set".  I'll see if I can't snag a picture of him either at the palace or on the barge  this weekend with the other ones I am trying to get...
