Collections / Re: How do you display?
« on: September 18, 2003, 10:20 PM »
I tend to display my toys in diorama form and as such I mix vintage and modern up to get as good as an effect on the diorama as possible. Certainly the mixing of the two can seem odd to outsiders, but I've grown quite fond of the setup. Here's a few pics from my website to illustrate my display habits. I need to get new pics up some day, these aren't the best pics and some changes have gone thru, especially in the Jabba's Palace :P

I like your army builder idea Jason...

I would actually reverse my opinion on these if Stormtroopers, Red Battledroids, Army Builder 3-packs, or the Imperial 4-pack were put up on auction in grand #'s.

I'd just sink every point I have into army builders if that were the case.  

Stormie 4-packs go up?  Bam there'd go the vast majority of my points I think. :)

Much better than these lame things like Silver figures or Saculs...  Blah.

I'd be just like you JJ, all over as many Army builders as I could get. These are top priority for me and I so hope Hasbro is listening and will give us CT Stormies, Imp Officers, Red BD's, etc.

dusthro: yeah thats how i see it too. back in the day hasbro and kenner would ask kids to buy 2 to 4 figs at retail to be able to get a special figure by mail, so logic dictates that the same should be said for today. then again, logic isn't how you spell hasbro  ;)

screw figures that only obsessive fanboys with 100,000 points will get.

I want hasbro to offer us 'lower' collectors sets of 5 stands like the ones in the TRU 4-packs for maybe 100-200 points each or something...

i think for 100-200 points we should easily be able to get a nice army builder figure. that kinda JMP cost equates to buying 10-20 action figures, for having bought that many figures we should be able to get at least an action figure in this auction. keyword being should...   ???

Harrison Ford also had a small role in Apocolyps Now, Air FOrce One,Reguarding Henry, What Lies Beneath, The Fugative,......
------------
He also had a substantial role in Force 10 From Navarone. And I can't believe no one mentioned Blade Runner :)


And I can't believe no one's mentioned Harrison in Lucas' famous flick that paved the way the entire Star Wars franchise - American Graffiti!


D'OH!!!  :P

There may be two answers to this question, depending on what level of EU you follow, I'll go with what I think is the likely answer first:

The Emperor's son is Irek Ismaren, from the Children of the Jedi novel. Irek was the son of Roganda Ismaren, one of the Emperor's Hands, and if I recall correctly Irek was also a potential Force user.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / CW Anakin figure question
« on: September 16, 2003, 09:14 PM »
Does the new Clone Wars Anakin figure have the same droid arm as the Secret Ceremony Anakin figure? Taking a look at this url=http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/clonewars/index.html]image[/url] on the Cartoon Network website, it shows that Anakin has not covered the right hand with synthflesh, so without being able to locate a good pic of the Anakin, can anyone answeer this question?

My guess is no prototypes will be in the auction. Hasbro is not fond of allowing prototypes to leave their grasps. In the Transformers collecting community there have been a lot of "raids" on sites that post pics of protos and auctions which sell protos. Based on that, I wouldn't think Hasbro would openly sell there own protos, especially when it is supposed to be common procedure for protos to be destroyed when their usefulness runs out. However a lot of what you suggest could come to fruition, leftover exclusives like Jorg or Vader, leftover items from the Fan Club store (still ran by WOTC which is a Hasbro subsidary). I'd love to see some Army Builder sets available, so long as it was affordable for as many people as possible to get their hands on them. I do have a feeling though we will also see tons of unsold stock moved through these auctions, this can be good or bad, we could get stuff that never really made retail like the 2nd wave Ep1 accessory sets but we can also get garbage like returned Jango Fetts that don't even move for $2 at KB. I've yet to count how many Jedi Pts I have, my guess is somewhere around 2500, but I know there are goiong to be people with JPs in the 5 digit range and if these auctions aren't ran right we could see the minority gobble up everything before the majority even has a chance :(
