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...

Ok the wife and daughter are going to swim lessons tomorrow so by 9pm we will know if there is a Prune Face in the Endor scenes or not.  I re-read this entire thread just to make sure it wasn't a "he is BEHIND a Tree" type tongue in cheek reference, but I am going to give it a go.  If I find one, I'll post here and somebody can tell me how to post the photo, once I copy it.


They must be really camo-ed...When the Shuttle is parked up in the trees and the troopers are marching a bit down a hill (you can see about 22-24 of Human Trooperssm, so 2 full Squads), But Alas no Prune Face.

I also checked the part where Luke comes running back after they get separated, and I didn't find one there either.  I did not have time to search the entire battle scene or even the Approach to the Shield Generator, but I will the next time I get a chance....

Guys, I've got DSL now and would love to get some games going.  I'm terrible at it, but oh well.  I like playing just the same...So if you guys are still playing drop me a line.

I've played it the last two nights and I will have to admit that I don't know a DARN thing about what I am doing, what I am suppossed to be doing or how to Join the Empire or Rebellion.

Honestly, it seems way too difficult for me to get into so I will probably box it up and go to Game Stop...I bought the TIps book, I'll read that before I get out, but I just don't "Get it" I guess.  Of course I could play Galactic Battle Grounds for days on end, so it may just not be My TYPE of game.

I just got my "bent" card box from NewForce and I have some extras.  Keep in mind these are Openers so the cards are not in MINT condition.  Some of them are not that bad, but none are what "Carded" collectors look for.

Darth Vader, Throne Room Duel
Luke Skywalker, Throne Room Duel
R2-D2, Droid Factory
C3P0, Tatooine Ambush (this one got the Brunt of the Bent Box/Card
Chewbacca, Mynock Hunt


Loose Vintage in Decent Condition (I don't need fresh off the Card, but I don't want "been in the backyard since 78 either) Obviously you'd get a better than 1:1 ratio

(can be loose, but complete)

POTJ/SAGA Imperial Officers ANY
SAGA Rebel Fleet Trooper
POTJ Death Star Escape Han Solo
Wedge Antilles from the Pilot 3 Pack
Biker Scouts
POTF2 Endor Rebels
SAGA Endor Rebels
Anakin's Speeder
Zam's Speeder
Star Tours Astromech Droids

Email me or just reply here.

Toy Reviews / Re: Hoth Han (Blue) Review
« on: July 31, 2003, 01:23 PM »
I've got to agree with your review.  The most disappointing thing (once you get past the Action Feature) is the Stance.


He comes with the best version of his blaster we have seen so far(if it is not Identical it is very close to the Endor Raid one)

I like the Hood Up (very Vintage)

The wrists and Elbows allow him to hold an Imperial Blaster in a "Hip-Shooting" fasion.

The Boots are well done



When the mask comes off, so does the brim of his cap..whats that for???

Lack of Leg Articulation (this could be a subset of Stance)

Much like Endor Raid Han, it was a figure that I highly Anticipated and one that disappointed  me a bit.(Endor Han did ALOT)

Thanks for the Warm Welcome guys!!

And JJ is right the Military Aspect of the Galactic Civil War is probably what kept me interested in Star Wars for such a long time...From Fancy Uniforms and Naval Battles to Rag Tag Groups and Guerilla Tactics.......

Thanks again for the Welcome!

I collect Original Trilogy figures, the POTF2/POTJ/SAGA.  I am an opener and I have stuff that I WANT to Customize, but never get around to it.  I have a majority of my Vintage Figures from "the 1st Time around"...and after doing some research contrary to what my parents told my wife, I did not have EVERY figure, in fact, I only had 50 of them so I am considering starting back up collecting Vintage figures, but the loose ones aren't "Mine" so I may be forced to buy some really POOR Cards or Baggie figures.

I've also considered getting some of the "Busts" after seeing the Scout Trooper from the Comic Con.

Glad to be here,

The Original Trilogy / Re: Original Trilogy on bootleg DVD
« on: July 30, 2003, 10:09 PM »
I've seen the Original Trilogy out there as a bootleg DVD set for some time.  This weekend, I was definitely tempted to buy theatrical versions of the OT as a set for $50.  So, here are the questions:  

-Are you for or against bootlegging in general?

-Do you have the Original Trilogy as bootleg DVD's?

-If you did, what did you pay?

-Did you get the Special Edition, or the Theatrical Releases?

And lastly, how long do you think it will be until the original trilogy comes out on DVD?

I am against bootlegging IF the item is available at Retail.  This is a question of somebody doing a Media Transfer...

Yes I do have the OT on DvD

I got it on Ebay for about $49 plus shipping

I THOUGHT I bought the NON-SE but I got the SE, I was under the impression the stuff was IN the US too, but it showed up from the Far East....

It will be too long before the OT is on a General Release DVD...

And as far as DVD features go, mine is in a whole 10-12 chapters not exactly the easiest to just JUMP to your favorite scene...And it won't play in my PS2, my Mini-DVD Player or my Laptop....only the regular DVD player.

Solo definately tells him that they will meet at the generator, and Now that I hear that a Prune Face can be seen I'll have to watch it real slow on the Bootleg DVD and see if I can get a screeen capture of it.  Somebody would have to tell me how to post it though....
