Watto's Junk Yard / Re:Your DVD Collection
« on: March 4, 2003, 03:22 PM »
I've gotten through the TTT bootleg 1/2 way now and so far the quality is excellent, some scenes in the theater are not there in this DVD, probably because they shipped out this "screener" ahead of the release.

Every so often a little blurb comes up which says: "For you consideration"  This is what screeners are, they are for awards show voters to preview movies ahead of time.

Well worth the $10 and enough to tide me over until the Extended Version Release in the Fall

It sounds like The Simpsons: Season 3 will be released in June, hopefully Season 4 by Christmas in what I consider to be the Golden Age of the Simpsons, I can't wait!

I find hiking enjoyable...rock climbing is another thing, too dangerous for me.  I've hiked to a couple of peaks and getting to the top is an amazing feeling.  

Matt, sweet picture...much less poser like  :P

Chris, love the collection shots you have some nice stuff there and well set up.  Perhaps you should root for a real football team though!!!  ;)

Nirvana is way to high, and how can they list them and SOundgarden and not Pearl Jam or Alice in Chains???  No way would Ozzy rate that high by himself if not for his recent TV show and I also agree on some bands being called hard rock...

I also personally can't stand AC/DC but that is just me ;)

Eeth Koth from Episode I was not there but his kindred Agen Kolar was...check this out for Jedi who remained in the final circle...so I'd put a spare one in if you have one

Saga '02-'04 / Re:Coll. 1 Boba Fett, Anakin, Mace & R2 review...
« on: March 3, 2003, 10:06 AM »
I was pleasantly suprised how much I like all of these figures.  I had a preconcieved notion that I would hate all of them but all of them have some redeeming qualities (even R2)

I love Boba's blast effect and the paint scheme.  His articulation could be better, the 300th Fett rules but this is an adequate rerelease

Anakin is awesome IMO, I agree the robe is a little off and could have been better executed but the articulation more than makes up for his shortcomings.  I also like the look of his metal hand.  We need Mace and Obi Wan from Episode 2 just like this!

Mace while having a horrid cloth cape and funny face expression is like you said SilverZed3 is actually pretty fun to play with.  The fact that we don't have a decent Mace from EpII yet is the reason so many people are ticked about this guy. A felt cape covering the rubber arms might have had better execution.  Which brings up why can't the capes be made like the Vintage ones which are vastly superior to anything Hasbro has put out yet!

R2 is again not the greatest but he actually is OK for what he is supposed to be.  If kids need an R2 this will be perfect for them to play with, I have many R2's with Holo Leia's and R2's with tools to customize and fill dioramas.  THis one really is for completionists and diorama builders only to try and recreate the C-3PO & R2 Arena scene!

I'll reiterate that I found these figures to be not as bad as I thought they would be.  

The action features could have been implemented a lot better, ala the '03 Darth Tyranus who has a leg squeeze or the Obi Wan who has a pseudo hidden button.  If anyone remembers the old Super Powers line, that is how action features should be implemented into 3 3/4" action figures.  If you are wondering then, I'd buy Anakin and Boba for sure. And maybe buy R2 and Mace, if you already have some older versions which are all superior to these two versions, then go ahead and pass!

« on: March 3, 2003, 09:53 AM »
I love the Imperial Set, I'll pick up three or four probably.  I'll pass big time on the Bounty Hunters though.  The EU swoop does nothing for me.  Sweet idea, I hope they do more of these instead of the accessory sets...as long as there are new figures (even if they are repaints)

Saga '02-'04 / Re:Holy cow! We're getting TWO new Jedi Lukes!!!
« on: March 3, 2003, 09:52 AM »
I'm really stoked about this news!  I cannot wait for '04 as it won't be here soon enough.  The '03 Luke looks OK, and for the most part all of the Collection 1 figures this year have been pretty swell.  The face looks bad, a pet peeve of mine is expressions put onto figures faces.  Sweet news!
