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

some neat figs there, some could be quite useful for parts, others i'm not so sure about, but for a buck a piece they look fun to play with.

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=]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 :(

Saga '02-'04 / Re: How Goes the Hunt?
« on: September 16, 2003, 08:00 PM »
I had an interesting weekend on the hunt.

Saturday I was able to score Wave 2 of the Screen Scenes thanks to some nice work by my mom  :P

Sunday I went out and about and visited 8 stores and only had luck at 2, though at almost every store I found something new:
- Target #1: 2 Cases of 4/23 figures were put out for some unknown reason. They also had 3 CW Gunships
- TRU #1: The newest thing was the Bounty Hunter 4-pack though I got that a month ago. Interesting to see a dozen POTJ BoSheks on the pegs while seeing NO Saga carded figures at all
- Wal-Mart #1: They had a couple of cases of the wave that included Hoth Han and Mynock Chewie. They also had tons of Ephant Mon wave figures sans the Ephant Mons of course.
- Target #2: 3 total figures, the recarded Tatooine Luke, musta just missed the Lt. Faytonni figs, D'oh! along with the rotj luke and vader.
- TRU #2: 4 Hoth 4-packs, woo hoo, first score! Found out later in the day afteR I opened the pack that they fixed the broken horn Tauntaun :( This TRU also had about 15 CW Droideka sets with the guy working in that section sayign they were unlikley to order more CW 3-packs until those moved which he knows wont happen cause no one wants them.
- Target #3: Scored the black hair variant RFT, had some other figs from that case, but no Imperial Officers :(
- Walmart #2: They had a couple red hair RFTs and the ugly acklay battle obiwan, but nothing else of importance.
- Target #4: Bare pegs and shelves, the only SW item was a non-electronic lightsaber.

Though I didn't find a lot of stuff I wanted, it was nice to see that 7 of the 8 stores at least had something that had came out in the last month.

Then on monday, my Target exclusive A-Wing came to me in the mail, what a sweet looking ship. And no matter what anyone might say, well worth the $20 when compared to the previous POTF2 A-Wing.

I was lucky enough to get the Wave 2 sets the other night (still no luck with finding Wave 1) and I'm a bit disappointed with the sets so far. While the sculpts look top notch, there are parts of the figures that are just lacking. For instance only one figure in each set has waist articulation, thats just an embarrasment right there in my eyes. Waist articulation is one of the most basic necessities of most figures. The fact that in each set there is a figure that has its torso and legs as one full piece is bothersome. Of the 6 figures in the set, Yarael Poof is the best as it has a nice sculpt, great use of soft goods and an adequate amount of articulation. Considering these sets are an average price of $20, Hasbro should have gone out of their way to make the figures more of a premium quality that your average figures. When looking back at the old Cinema Scenes, each figure there got the 6 basic points of articulation and if necessary something extra, but thats not to be seen here. Overall they are nice sets, but I think Hasbro could have taken the extra steps to make the figures even nicer (or in some cases more standard) for the price point. All I ask is for Hasbro to work within the guidelines they themselves have set in the past and that our still logical and cost-efficient today.
