Collections / Re: What is the Pride and Joy of your Collection?
« on: December 5, 2005, 09:28 PM »
This is one of my favorite items I have added to my collection since CIII:

It's the CIII variant Redhead Padme... it's a one-of-a-kind.  She's precious, priceless, and not for sale or trade :^)

Other Collectibles / easy to miss items?

Anyone know of easy to miss items?  By this I mean things that aren;t advertised much, and you may pass right up, or something you may not normally think to collect!

Ornaments are out at Target in the XMAS aisle and are fairly cheap.

Halloween candy wrappers (litrally about 100+ different combinations of wrappers, bags, etc.

BK- the SW gift cards (freebies if you do it right :^)

Magazines- Empire has a SW guide packed in this months edition

There's a ROTS foosball table avail at WalMart

An oddity, yes, but i like to collect all the "pre-order" cards at TRU, they are free, usually there's a stack of about 100 you can grab a few, neat to collect.

any others??????????


I've changed a bit.  I still pretty much only get one of each fig, place in a case, and display (now starting to store becasue I'm running low on space)

A lot of things I've really cut back on waiting for clearances.  I've really been into all the promo stuff lately.  You'd be amazed how many cool SW things there are that don't cost but a dollar (or less) when you wait for clearances.

Other Collectibles / Re: Star Wars Transformers?

Funny, the Transformer fans on thier forums seem to really like them, but the SW fans seem to dislike them.  I won't go as far as to say Hate them like the Froce Battler Obi.

Anyone know hoew common it is for the Transformer line to be a cross-collectible?  Meaning do they produce transformers that tie in to other licenses?


There were aton of these at my local Taget this morning, and for $13+tax a pop, and there on the shelf they will stay.  Ugh, these are god awful looking, worse than in the pics, I didn't even bother picking these up off the shelf to look at.  Scalpers pockets usually don't run to deep, so I imagine they will remain there for a little while.  Especially since the reg figs are discounted at $4.31ea.

At $13 a pop, for 3 little figs, you could get a nice mini-bust for less!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What are Hasbro and Target thinking?

I've heard a few things recently focused on the Boba Fett storyline.  As a huge Fett fan, i'm torn.  I really like Daniel Logan in EP II, I think he did a good job as a young Fett, but I think carrying a TV series on the shoulders of a young actor as he would be difficult.  You think George would have learned his lesson with Llyoyd and EP I.

Although, Logan in 2 years is well, 2 years older, and if the series carries for a few years, Logan at 2,3,4 yrs. down the road, may not be SO bad.  I dunno.

Still wish it would focuse on the Rebellion and work all the characters and backstories in as asides.

I've since dug mine out and have the baton in-package. 

Well, I really lucked out on the Myo and Treevagg OTC variations  ;D , but didn't happen to have this one.  :(

There are 2 variations out there, onewith the baton in the package, one with the baton in hand, just curious as to which variation everyone has....


Similar tot he OTC Myo/Trevaagg cup in hand/in packae variation, seems like Hasbro likes to sneak one or two of these (dare I say) "ultra rare" packaging variations in on us from time to time.  Curious to see how many Madine variations are out there.

(by the way, my Madine is packed up, so I don' even know which one I have yet

Grabbed the Vader Force Battler.  That sucker has been tough for me to find around here.  (of course anythign Vaderr goes well in my parts)
Grabbed the Vader fig w/cup set from Target, so PO'd they raised the price from $9.99 to $12.99 on these.  Had Leia but left her, no ST.

I think I've posted on this before, but I would have loved to see a SW TV show simply entitled "Rebellion" centered around the formation and early rise of the Rebellion.

It sould start shortly after EPIII or, actually I'd like to see maybe the pilot episode sort of overlap with the events of EPIII.  I'd like to see Smits actually be one of the main stars, maybe have some cameos in the first episode to kick things off.  You could start with the formation of the rebellion, maybe one of the first meetings on Coruscant around the time of EPIII.  Mon Mothma could have a part, even introduce characters like Dodonna

I'd like to see specific episodes like the creation of Rouge Squadron(which they could then be used in multiple episodes, swooping in and saving the day), or a Wedge backstory, or early training and missions. 

An episode or two (or a small mini-series type concept could be centered around a young Luke, with some catchy title like "the unknown hero" or something)

You could also at the same time show the Rebelilions struggles against the Empire.  Characters like Tarkin, Veers, etc. could be mainstay "Baddies"(you would still have the classic good vs. bad theme).  Also I'd like to see an episode maybe where the Empire enslaves surviving wookies, including Chewie.  You could eventually have an episode on Han and his earely role in the Empire. maybe showing how Han and Chewie came to be.

There could be an episode showing how the Rebellion "recruited" the Bothans as their spy network,  eventually as you get closer to EP IV in later episodes, you could show how the REbellion came into all the X-wings, etc. or maybe an episode where they smuggled a bunch of R2 units in order to plan attacks using the X-wings.  Maybe actually show how the plans to the Death star were stolen.

Sure, an occational episode showing the "jedi purge" would be awesome.

Characters like Obi-WAn and Yoda could always be referenced, but if Lucas didn;t want to show on-screen, could still be workled into the story.

I'd love to see episodes where they "discover the massassi temple and create the Rebel base, or show the Rebellion on Dantooine, and have a season ending episode where maybe they are "beat down" and why they have to desert Dantooine.

I'd love to see certain "bounty hunter" or underworld type episodes.Tell me an episode working in someone like Xizor and Black Sun wouldn't be pretty cool.

Imagine scenes of a Royal Guard training center? or raids by the rebellion on Empire stockyards, seeing a huge warehouse where AT-AT's are being constructed, and the Rebellion raids it and blows it all up? ( I envision a scene, where Veers is visiting for an inscpection of the construction of the Empires "new" weapon, and the rebels mine the warehouse and as the raid begins, the Empire manages to get people inside one of the At-AT's and Veers is yelling "it's too late, we cannot lose them all,we must save one, finished or not were going to see what one of these armored transports can do, get some pilots in there and make them pay!" I can see an unfinished At-AT being started up and pulls out of the "dock" as it takes it's first steps, pipes and gaslines lines pull away and as the camera pans back to a burning shipyard, a huge At-AT comes marching out of the flames and the rubble of a destroyed shipyard, and rebel pilots race to thier ships to escape and the At-At starts pulverizing them.  The episode ends as a rebel pilot hands Mon Mothma the plans for the shipyard as he dies.  Mon Mothma and Organa take the plans and while they converse about the Empire growing ever stronger, a 3-D image shows plans for vehicles like the AT-AT and Vaders super Star Destroyer.

or, how about Boba Fett actually being hired by the Rebellion early on?  Imagine an early fett working for the "good guys" back in the days?  He could still be a mercenary-for-hire but actually work for the good guys, that would be a pretty cool twist.

Man, the possibilities are just endless.

Wasn't the whole point of Luke's story to begin with, the fact that his Uncle kept him on a leash working on the farm so he wouldn't be found.  and the fact that Luke was a "Boring" moisture farmer, longing and craving for some excitement, only to end up becoming the hero of the universe, the whole basis for SW to begin with? ???

So, what, now we're going to rewrite that and make hom some exciting teenager?

I too shudder :-[
