Watto's Junk Yard / Thoughts and Prayers: To All
« on: March 19, 2003, 12:00 PM »
With the impending conflict in Iraq my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone I know.  To our soldiers and commanders involved in the conflict.  The uncertainty involved with terrorism here and abroad.  To the Iraqi people and soldiers who are forced to fight. neighboring countries and its citizens etc

I don't think anything drastic will happen...May God Bless us all if it does though  ;)

We have decided to separate out the Clone Wars line from the Star Wars Saga line in order to give this new and exciting line its own home.

Enjoy  ;D

Sweet!

I just sent in my order form a few eeks ago so it will probably be awhile until mine comes.  This is a really great idea though, word on the street is that Stonecutters will be the next mail away premium ;)

Send your Wish List for 10[/i] 3 3/4" Figures to me or post them here, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases and I'll tally the votes.  After two weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie.  This time around it is the one that started it all!  SW:ANH, or Episode IV.  If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:   Episode IV.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Also check out Red6's archive for the very obscurest of the obscure for more choices...

I really like the look of those Bounty Hunters...don't tempt me.  $71 doesn't sound too bad

Don't tease me too much but I really want to pick up a set of Sesame Street Kubricks for my son...tell me these aren't some of the cutest things ever and reckon back to the day of SS Little People

Saga '02-'04 / Screen Scenes: Geonosis War Room and Jedi Council
« on: March 10, 2003, 11:05 AM »
Mike at Galactic Hunter posted today that there indeed will be 4 sets of two each from the Geonosis War Room and the Jedi Council.

As reported before these sets will include two new figures and a resculpt.

Personally I'm hoping for:


Poggle the Lesser


San Hill


Shu Mai

Tikkes

And for the Jedi Council:
Oppo Rancisis
Yarael Poof
Yaddle
Even Piell

Resculpts of Mace and Yoda sitting in the chairs would be cool as well.

I am probably the most excited about these sets over anything else in the '03 line!

Saga '02-'04 / New Pics, Wedding Padme, Wat Tambor and Coleman

Wat Tambor is amazing, I am really pumped by that figure.

Should it not be Padme Skywalker and not Padme Amidala!!!  Something is a little off with her face, not so angelic, I still love every new Padme figure.

Coleman is Coleman, I'll buy him, I know a certain group of people who will be wetting themselves when they see this one  8)

Star Wars Action Figures / Ice Cream Maker Guy
« on: February 11, 2003, 10:53 AM »
 :)

Here is my custom with a reference photo









I boiled and popped a Skiff Guard Lando, shaved his hair back a little and painted it, and used the Imperial Officer for the jumpsuit and painted it the beautiful puke orange :)   I need to work on doing hands as I usually will just paint them black or make sure they have gloves so I don't have to match colors.  I also need a Dremel  :-[

The maker I made out of Sculpey and I also need to make a new one but I am happy with him for now until Hasbro makes one too...

PS Sign the Petition!!!

Saga '02-'04 / Trade Federation's 2003-2004 Rumor List
« on: February 7, 2003, 10:38 AM »
Stass Allie
Passel Argente
Bespin Gown Leia
Cloud Car Pilot
C3-P0 Jabba's Palace
Bib Fortuna
Weequay
Jabba w/ dais- as we have mentioned in the past
Chief Chirpa
General Madine
Imperial Dignitary- (though there was also talk of both versions at one point, only one is listed as of now)

These very well could be 4th Quarter 2003 releases, the Leia that has been rumored in the next Saga cases was a repack of the POTJ Bespin Escape Leia, this looks like a new one for later in the year...Something about this though smacks of too good to be true to me.  We'll have to wait until there is more confirmation :D

Saga '02-'04 / Time to Wake Up Hasbro!!!
« on: January 28, 2003, 12:03 PM »
http://www.mwctoys.com/FEATURE_012703.htm

MichaelMWC's site held a Fan Choice type of poll in which readers voted on best and worst of 2002 Toy Lines...Hasbro and Star Wars was well represented in Worst of Catagory...

Bad Articulation, Bad Sculpting, Bad Packaging...

I wonder why this is?  What makes people so ticked off, well lets look at the winners...the Muppets, ToyBiz (LOTR and Marvel Legends) MOTU and The Simpsons all had many of the Best of Votes.  All of these have superior sculpting and character likeness and most have uber articulation...

They also cost more, which then begs the question is the decrease in price point a result of this. Would you pay $1-$2 more to get figures like Ephant Mon in every figure?  Is the 3 3/4" scale not able to be better articulated and have a better likeness than the larger 5" and 6" figures?
