Celebration III: Indianapolis / C3 Cash$$$ How much is necessary?
« on: March 24, 2005, 10:09 PM »
I'm trying to get an estimate of how much cash I should bring with me to the convention. I know I'm gonna need about 200 bucks for gas on my way there and back, but what abotu spending money? I cut costs by getting some Cerial for breakfast, and a small cooler to have stuff for lunch when I go.

I figure

60 for 4 Vaders
50 for my Bust

Thats 310 already.

Plus probobly 100 for recreation/extra loot,

and say... 100 for food for the 4 nights?

Hmm...any hidden expenses I might have missed?


Revenge of the Sith / A possible unforseen problem.

12:01 am April 2, 2005 is when the figures are supposed to be able to sell, but do they manually have to be activated for purchase in the PC? I can see this holding up tons of collectors when they go to the stores. Or is there some giant satalite wave that activates them for purchase?


Celebration III: Indianapolis / C3 - Where are you staying?
« on: March 22, 2005, 11:44 PM »
Taking a note from that other forum, I figured, why not? It cant hurt to know where others are staying.

I'll start

Econo Lodge South. 2 miles from the con. A brisk walk or really short drive.


The Prequel Trilogy / PT Showings May 18th-19th?
« on: March 19, 2005, 01:52 PM »
Has anyones Movie Theatres announced a showing of the first three movies in a row? I know it did overwhelmingly well with Lord of the Rings here, so I figure it's only a matter of time before they do it with the Star Wars Prequal Trilogy. I figure the first two will be shown the night of the 18th, and then they will hit us with Episode 3 Return of the Sith, to cap off the evening.

So? Any one ehard of this?

           Under the leadership of the mysterious Count Dooku,

         several thousand systems have declared their intentions to

              secede from the Republic.  Few in the Senate believe a

                            galactic civil war can be avoided.


          As the Senate prepares to vote on the proposition to create

            a grand army of the Republic, Senator Amidala of Naboo is

           preparing to depart her home planet to return to Coruscant.


               Meanwhile, Rykrof Enloe has traveled to the remote planet

             of Tatooine in hopes to arrest the remaining criminal leaders

                         of the terrorist Badoo Corba organization…

Enjoy guys!



Toy Reviews / Famines Red Senate Security Guard Reveiw or FRSSGR!
« on: March 15, 2005, 09:40 PM »
Sporting 12 points of Articulation, this ROTS figure is pretty badass. First, dont let the package fool you. The mask the coolness of the figure with a red cloth burka. I almost didn't pick it up off the peg because of this, but I did, and I'm sure glad of it now. He comes with a Biker Scout style blaster, and a nice rifle styled blaster. The figure also comes complete with a piece of the Senate floor as a stand.

The figure:

The figure itself is cool in general. It's very articulated (12 points) and the paint aplication is pretty persistant, except on the right sholder of mine for some reason. I wont hold that against anything since it may just be mine. The cloak has to go. Period. It's well suited for display, but for play, it's like tossing a big floppy napkin over it. My cloak flares out like Supermans cape, and looks silly. This is my one nitpick. Once I popped off this guys head (ball joint) I removed the robe and checked out the sweet Carnor Jax inspired armor. Featurint tones of maroon, crimson, and grey, the figure beneith the robe is absolutley perfect. He has sholder pads, chest and ab armor, a crotch plate, and knee and shin guards. He looks really professional, and dressed to kill. He even has a nice little holster. His arms tke a bit getting used to when posing them, but when you do it's really easy. His head also turns quite well.

The Acessories:

First the tiny little blaster is a pain in the butt to keep track of durring play. I must have lost track of it 5 or 6 times already. It's made of some really hard plastic, so I bet it'll hurt when I step on it, inevitably. The blaster rifle he comes with is really really neat. It's painted silver and black, and has a strap on it, for sholdering it on break. I keep it sholdered on my guard because it helps releave the puffyness of the cloak, and makes it look more professional. When your in the buisness of security, it's best to look professional. It's made of very hard plastic, and mine isn't bent at all, like some I've seen on other sites. The base he comes with is just cool. If the other figures come with pieces to complete the floor, I will undoubtedly get them and make a neat little diorama with them. The best part about the base is that it's actually painted, and it looks like somthing that isn't garbage. Somthing that struck me as odd was that on the bottom, it says 2004 LFL Hasbro China. Maybe it's a rehash from a figure I don't have? Who knows.

Some things I noticed:

As I said, the cloak is a pain in the butt to make work on the figure, so it stays fluffy. I used one of Hasbros famous clear rubber bands, and scrunched his cloak into itself, and put it down near his ankles, and it makes it so much less noticable.

This trooper suffers from 'Noassatall' syndrome. He's got a flat round pelvis, with no booty. Baby does not have back at all.

He is a much more vibrant red than the Saga Guard.

Mine's armor has a crack in the chest area. I hope this was just a factory flaw, and not a spoler.  :P

All in all I recomend this guy, if you can find him.

Famine, out.



"Let's get wet! It's easy to stay cool and have fun with this Star Wars water sprinkler. Darth Vader spins as water sprays from his light saber. Sprinkler is 10" tall and connects to a standard garden hose."

Hahaha, I want one now!


Watto's Junk Yard / A question about Movie Postmarks.
« on: March 15, 2005, 01:57 PM »
Today I got a letter in the mail, and my stamp was covered with a picture of a Robot from the movie Robots. I remeber when the Grinch and Cat in the Hat came out, they had postmarks from the movie. Have any of the Star Wars movies had specialized promotional postmarks? Will Revenge of the Sith have one?


Watto's Junk Yard / JediDefender Driving Thread
« on: March 13, 2005, 12:20 PM »
I take my road test tommorow at 8:30 am, and I thought I had everything mastered. I can do left hand turns no sweat, I know when to stop, go, what the speedlimits are everywhere, etc, 3 point turns...I could even parallel park...on my left side. But for some reason I cannot for the life of me nail the left side parallel park. Fine time to ask, a day before it, I know, but no one in my family can parallel park, so I cant ask them.

Can some one maybe suggest somthing I could try?

Feedback / Dressel Rebel's feedback
« on: March 8, 2005, 07:25 PM »
Thanks to Dressel for hooking me up with the Preview R unit, so I could complete my preview figure wave!  Looking forward to dealing with you again!


I was thinking about the Fantasy Leauges, and I thought, hey, we could do a JediDefender Celebration 3 Softball game one evening durring the con at a park, or maybe a game of touch football. I don't wanna hurt you old timers. (KIDDING). If everyone brough a glove, I think it's doable.

Who would be in for such an event?
