Saga '02-'04 / Re:New Anakin, Boba Fett and R2 Pics
« on: January 23, 2003, 04:27 PM »
I think that R2 could possibly be the worst figure ever, the legs don't look like they are moveable...

Boba and Anakin look really cool.  I will for sure be keeping them...

Dooku looks strange, like his head is squashed

I hate the kiddy way these toys are going (is that a paradox) after years of being collector driven they kind of have been thumbing our noses in it

I chatted with a Customer Service person at FAO.com today, I got the standard we're receiving it on 1/25 line.  She told me if that is the case they won't ship until 1/29 so look for them in February!

The 6-Breasted one is also high on my lists, I'd rather have the bloodied colon looking thing pictured above

We have a family cat and his name is Cosmo.  My son just loves him and since he started walking has chased him like a mad man.  I feel bad for Cosmo, he never knew what was going to happen when we brought a little budnle of joy home alst year :)

9 votes separated CA And GD at .05% that should be 18,000 votes total. 9*100/18000= 0.05%

Last Wednesday lets say there were 9000 votes cast at the time (might be kind of high but lets just assume it is so), GD had a 6% lead on Tuesday.

1st 9000 Total

Senator Yarua (Kashyyyk Senator) : 21 % 1890
Ben Quadinaros (Pod Racer) : 12 % 1080
Rabé : 13 % 1170
Gen. Jan Dodonna : 30 % 2700
Captain Antilles : 24 % 2160

Total 18000

Senator Yarua (Kashyyyk Senator) : 24.67 % 4441
Ben Quadinaros (Pod Racer) : 12.68 % 2282
Rabé : 11.60 % 2088
Gen. Jan Dodonna : 25.50 % 4590
Captain Antilles : 25.55 % 4599

So for the Last Week of the Poll

Senator Yarua (Kashyyyk Senator) : 28.3% 2551 Votes
Ben Quadinaros (Pod Racer) : 13.3% 1202 Votes
Rabé : 10.2% 918 Votes
Gen. Jan Dodonna : 21.0% 1890
Captain Antilles : 27.1 % 2439

The thing that is fishy to me at least is that Ben and Rabé had relatively the same amount over the second half versus the first, I can accept the Yarua gain being most non-collectors identify with a Wookiee over the two old ANH leaders...since the poll was sent out to the masses. The baffling thing to me is the flip flopping of the CA and GD numbers over the second half of the poll...

I think the big question if we make the leap of faith and say that Hasbro didn't count votes from the same IP address (a big leap I think), the question then has to be...

Did non-collectors taint the poll results? By publicizing the poll to people who may not give a rats patoot did they choose the Captain over the General?

Can't complain too much since we are getting both of the guys I wanted, I wanted Dodonna more because he had a bigger role in the movie, he could come with the DS display table and he is a tough custom...

Interesting I think and a good question for future polls...

And far as the Fishiness of the whole voting process:

1st 9000 Total (Tuesday the 14th)

Senator Yarua (Kashyyyk Senator) : 21 % 1890
Ben Quadinaros (Pod Racer) : 12 % 1080
Rabé : 13 % 1170
Gen. Jan Dodonna : 30 % 2700
Captain Antilles : 24 % 2160

Wednesday the 15th Let's say there were 1000 votes

Senator Yarua (Kashyyyk Senator) : 22 % 2200
Ben Quadinaros (Pod Racer) : 12 % 1200
Rabé : 13 % 1300
Gen. Jan Dodonna : 28 % 2800
Captain Antilles : 25 % 2500

So in that 1000 there were

Senator Yarua (Kashyyyk Senator) : 31 % 310
Ben Quadinaros (Pod Racer) : 12 % 120
Rabé : 13 % 130
Gen. Jan Dodonna : 10 % 100
Captain Antilles : 34 % 340

This is the fishy part of the whole thing right here in a nutshell...In one day Dodonna received less votes than Rabe or Quadinaros...It looks like the right things happened, the lesson should be that the poll should be run better in general though.

Collect All 92! / Vintage Figures Which Have Not Been Updated
« on: January 23, 2003, 11:53 AM »
Hasbro better make these figures or else!

For Sure
1)General Madine
2)Klaatu Palace version
3) Imperial Dignitary
4)Chief Chirpa
5)Lumat
6)Romba
7)Warok
8)Cloud Car Pilot
9)Nikto
10)Barada #2 (Kithaba)

Debatable
1)Blue Gonk
An exact replica of the Lars family Power Droid was not made with the Power Droid provided with the jawa
2)Bespin Guard black
The correct ethnicity has not been released yet, however an Asian and White Guard have been
3)Rebel Commander
A figure similar to this was released however it was not based on the vintage figure
4)Imperial Commander
An exact likeness of a Tuniced Officer has not been released, the POTJ version was in a jumpsuit.
5)Death Squad Commander
Another in the was released but in an alternate uniform series
6) B-Wing Pilot
See above about costume changes

Rumor Mill

The rumor mill has these figures as possibilities :  

1) General Madine
Basic Release maybe later this year, sounds like it won't happen though
2)Cloud Car Pilot
Possible Target Exclusive Pack-In???  
3) Imperial Dignitary has been rumored for later this year as well

I voted Hermi Odle all the way, he's been on my wishlist for around 5 years now and once Ephant Mon went off he took his spot right near the top (Ephant took Amanaman's)

We want Hermi
