Medals (Ranked by Gold)

1. China 4 Gold - 1 Silver - 1 Bronze = 6

2. Australia 2 Gold - 1 Silver - 2 Bronze = 5

=3. Italy 2 Gold - 0 Silver - 0 Bronze = 2

=3. Japan 2 Gold - 0 Silver - 0 Bronze = 2

5. USA 1 Gold - 3 Silver - 1 Bronze = 5

6. Ukraine 1 Gold - 0 Silver - 1 Bronze = 2

I think the fact that most of the background charachters were puppets guys in suits made them "real" to me in the fact that they were there, they were actually in that space, look at charachter interaction in the cantina versus say when Obiwan first meets Jarjar and where he is looking, his line of sight was completely out of whack.
Also that most of the sets were real , not so much blue screen or green screen or whatever they use these days.
I knew the place in cloud city where Luke and Vader were fighting was real "constructed" not filled in later by computer, Jeff Goldblooms charachter in JP said it best , "just because you can do something doesn't mean you should"
I think thats the case , what were the chances of robots playing American football in outer space watching it in a bar???
That scene really annoyed the crap outta me, i could accept the races both pods and animals but not the football.
Like many have said before there is no-one there i care about.

EP1 has to be the light saber fight between Maul and Obi the sheer speed is mind boggling and it just looks so dam cool, the thing that upset me about mauls death was the fact that obiwan ahd done a flip over maul and tried to hit him and he flicked the attack away whilst getting up and then gets cut in half like a dufuss, kinda reminds me of boba fett, lucas made us think he was all cool and stuff and then he dies screaming like a beatch.
As for EP2
Obiwan to Anakin - why do feel you'll be the death of me
was pure magic a great line, The arena battle needed to go a little longer and maybe focus on some of the other jedi a bit more, i mean i was on the edge of my seat on opening night when i heard all those sabers light up i was in fanboy heaven!!

Got the other 10 OTC on it's way as well should have it from them on Monday or Tuesday is the company and as fas as stuff goes in Australia they really can't be beaten on the stock they carry.
Added to the fact their service is exceptional i have no reason to go anywhere else to get my starwars fix.

I stopped bothering with retail here in Australia
These shops do nothing here to help collectors during non movie periods and then when some stock comes in they think i'm gonna give em my hard earned cash?
Hell No
Got an online retailer that sells cheaper than retail, gets exclusives in has free shipping on orders over $80 and gets me my stuff fast
This arrived for me today

Hemish: My convention saber stand was a-ok.  Maybe you got a dud.  That really sucks if you did.  Are you sure you put the pieces in the correct sides?

These are the parts i got. I've emailed MR about it just waiting on a reply

My poster is going to one lucky American, but dam you yankies leave our posters alone, you have enough of our stuff ;D
But if you ask Dover at RS or GH he might part with his as he won one as well.

The first poster for me seeing as i have that.
Added to the fact that it was the first poster that i had seen and i knew i was hooked, from that moment on.
I had a thing for starwars when empire first came out on video i had my dad hire it out for me each week.
So i managed to track down a set of those posters and they are waiting to be framed.

According to, it looks as if Dr. Doom has now been cast for the Fantastic Four movie as well.  Guy by the name of Julian McMahon, from the FX Series nip/tuck.  I'm not familiar with him, as I haven't seen the show, but here's a pic:

And if you watch Charmed he's in that as well.
And he's an Aussie to boot

I just got my copy of Hellboy in the mail yesterday and after watching it last night i must say i was mighty impressed with Ron Pearlmans acting in the role of Hellboy, there was only one part where i noticed they had his big hand on the wrong way but crikey the film was good, looked good and when did Selma Blair get hot???
She looks sooooo good on the cover and even alright in the movie.Go Hellboy, might have to buy me the director's cut as well when that comes out.
