The Prequel Trilogy / Re:2 Sets from the OT in SW III
« on: March 11, 2003, 04:38 PM »
Sounds like one of the sets is from ROTJ and the other I would guess is from ANH reading between the lines here  

"It's always quite interesting going back to those historic elements of the saga," says Bocquet. "I think these ones are a little bit easier than the homestead, because they're studio-based and not location-based. They have quite precise drawings that we managed to extricate from the archives, although the archive isn't quite as full for A New Hope as it is for Empire and Jedi, simply because nobody knew what the films were going to become! We're working from the few drawings they do have, plus the stills and looking at the films, and breaking things down and trying to reproduce it."

While there is a sense of nostalgia in recreating environments from the original trilogy, for one of the sets it's particularly personal for Bocquet. "It's quite interesting for me, because I was on Jedi years ago, as a draftsman. So, occasionally some of these drawings that come through are actually mine! All the Art Department suddenly scours around my drawings to see how good they were at that age, but I do stress to them that I was only a junior at that point."

So I'd say Ben's hut is a good guess and from ROTJ probably Yoda's Hut (although that would be both ESB and ROTJ)?

TOugh call...I'd love to see the Cantina and Jabba's Palace again ;)

I just voted too!  Much easier now with the poll up.  Nice work Z!

Of course, I had to just wing it on some where I had no clue - like foreign films.  I voted for Canada just because I like DSJ and Morgbug so much!   ;D

Funny, I voted against Canada for that very reason  :-*

J/k any country that produces Shania can't be wrong in my book!

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re:New Clone Wars Anakin & Durge
« on: March 11, 2003, 02:09 PM »
I think the figures look pretty nice.  Anakin is a little too preposed for my liking.  Gone are the action features, staying are the crappy head leans and preposedness which makes a figure only good looking in one position.

Durge is a Power Rangers toy and leads into my rant...

I sure hope the kiddies like these because I see Clone Wars crap clogging the pegs when EpIII merchandise hits in '05   ::)  

This may be the Worst Idea Ever next to SOTE...

I'm happy for those of you who want EU figs, but I fear the consequences for those of us who don't.  

I really think we will be seeing this stuff forever, the "cartoon" isn't really a cartoon and will create some buzz but is it going to suck in new purchasers...some not masses though

Are these new tricked out designs going to appeal to the kid in the aisle who can only pick out one toy, maybe...

Are the many SW collectors who could care less about EU going to buy these?  Nope

So if they are produced in similar numbers to previous Collection 1 figs will the influx be more than the outflux...

I personally believe

Soccer Moms + New Cartoon Veiwers + Completionists + EU Enthusiats < EU Haters + People Not Happy with Saga Product Still + Hasbro's Overproduction Thinking that they will sell thousands of these

The last factor there is the key and is a problem with pegwarming already.  If you collected during SOTE you will know what I mean, some KB's still have Prince Xizors warming the pegs

Other Toy Lines / Re:Hey Simpson's Fans! B-Sharp Apu arrives

You have plenty of time, all B-Sharp offers end of '03 I believe.  I just received my second Homer for Morgbug a week ago...I think there will be plenty to go around

I voted now Zuckuss, that was fun and a lot better than what the Oscars will be.  Are yo going to announce the Edgars results at the same time as the Oscars?

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 ;)

While mostly visually boring, this movie contains some really neat-o undone characters and represents the bulk of my list here:

1. Bom Vimdin
2. Wioslea
3. R1 Droid
4. Hem Dazon
5. Dannik Jerriko
6. Tonnika Sisters Two Pack
7. Colonel Wulf Yularen
8. Braniac
9. Feltipern Trevagg
10. Red Leader

And I realize the Tonnika's have a slim to none chance of ever being done but I can dream can't I???


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...

Saga '02-'04 / Re:AFA 100 Toy Fair Darth Vader

If this sells...OMG, what a crock o' crap

$3000-$5000 for a modern SW Figure...rediculous

Kubricks / "Other" Kubricks and Minimates (Non SW)
« on: March 10, 2003, 02:58 PM »
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


And for the Jedi Council:
Oppo Rancisis
Yarael Poof
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!

« on: March 8, 2003, 10:15 AM »
Since we moved to our new house I have had to shovel (more than 2"+) 5 times.  Today we are getting 6"+ for the second time.  Guess how many times there was 2"+ before we moved in...0

I am so ready for the cold part of winter to be done, I don't mind the snow so much
