Saga Collection '06 / Re: Long Term Storage Questions
« on: April 4, 2006, 10:36 AM »
I have no room where I'm currently living and I had both options of putting my entire collection in the attic or the basement.  With the elements in mind, there was no way I wanted to jepardize everything.  I have all my carded figs in Star Cases too, but I put them all in huge thick flower boxes - I heard issues about the "breathing" thing so I took this route.

If you have the space in your home, then by all means it should be taken advantage of, but I'm leary of the attic/basement issues - insects, rodents, heat, humidity.  I since decided to go the expensive route by putting everything in a climate controlled storage unit to make sure everything stays nice and dry.  I take a peek into various boxes every few months or so and so far there's been no problems - not that I'd see one arising.

My stuff has been in storage for over a year now. I won't boast about the size of my collection, but everything has been nice and kosher.  ;)

Just my 2 cents...

WM would have to get figures first to actually have a price to fluctuate. :)  I'm in awe that almost all of you have WM's selling figures, and Pittsburgh WM's don't have pegs for them...  I'm dead serious.  I don't know what happened.

Ahh, the days of shopping at WM and actually being able to find new SW figs.  I'd have to say for me, a freak encounter with the Hoth wave was the last that I found.  Prior to that was back when I found the E2 preview figs.

I hope that WM pulls a price cut, maybe that's what's been holding them off from putting new stock out?  At least here in the Twin Cities area.

I'm 28 as well and I still remember watching them on the Tracy Ulman show.  Loved it even though they looked pretty fugly back in the day compared to now.  I hardly watch the show as much as I would like, but I still get a kick out of it everytime I get around to watch.  Gotta love those Halloween specials too  ;D

Bring on the movie I say!!  Dare I ask if there's any computer animation in it?

Peter Jackson has made Director's Cuts of all his movies, sans "Meet the Feebles". All of which really didn't do much for the movies, except "Heavenly Creatures", which got a little racier, and "Braindead/Dead Alive", and those were distributor cuts. "The Frighteners" is up in the air.

Had no idea that PJ directed The Frightners - not that I paid attention to anyway.  Twas an oddball movie, but I always liked it for some reason.  Didn't they just release a SE of the movie a few months back?

Bib looks fantastic on the card as do all the TSC/OTC figs.  I'll chime back in a few years from now when/if I decide to open anything I have.

You are Darth Maul - There is no doubt you are mysterious, intimidating, and well trained, but are you a master or an apprentice?

Darth Maul 71%
Luke 69%
Yoda 68%
R2 66%
Boba Fett 65%
Vader 63%
Palpy 62%
Anakin 60%
Jabba 60%
3P0 58%

Maul works fine for me.  Fits my personality perfectly.

5258
Okay, maybe I'm a bit confused here but it looks as if Palpy is using his force lightning on Yoda's cloak.  Suppose it can't work too well if Yoda isn't in it?  Maybe he's using some sort of force dry cleaning or something?

Saga Collection '06 / Re: 2006 vOTC (or vTSC) - now with pics!

Sweet pics of the Scout on his bike Jeff!!  Now we just need a speeder bike that's proportioned so the nose doesn't sit so close to the ground - always frustrated me..

Wasn't the CW one redesigned with alternate "handlebars?"  Other than that though, it used the same mold, correct?

Sorry for not saying more about the trooper, but what more can you say than AWESOME!!  Always been my favorite trooper out of the OT and this new scuplt has been well deserved for quite some time now.

Anyone have anything they'd like to share with the group?

Looks like Chunky McFly hurled after he was done "dancing."

I'm referring to your avatar of course.   ;)

I prefer to keep the functions of my body personal.  Sorry.

If it is a bit better then it might be $200 FAO thing.

FAO went belly up, no?

Can I use my Hyperspace Access Code from the Earlier Bird Kit to register and vote? I almost used one and there was a space at the bottom of the page to imput a referal, but it said nothing about the election. Anyone think that would count? If so, I can get you three votes.

I cracked my EB kit open a month or two ago and the access code was expired.  Maybe it's only the "newer" sets that still have a valid code??

Nice rumor and I hope that it's true, but I highly doubt that Hasbro has the balls to make an entirely new scuplt, plus one that's so big (not as big as we all would want though.)  With the re-released AT-AT coming with new deco, I can't see the AT-TE coming out anytime soon.  At least not now.

I do like the fact that Cody has a background image of the AT-TE.  Gives us hope I suppose, but do you remember the Cloud Car Pilots??  I thought for sure that Hasbro would re-release their vehicle in the OTC line, but no dice.
