The Original Trilogy / Hammer version of Star Wars
« on: August 25, 2012, 03:43 PM »
I've been watching alot of Hammer horror movies lately on Netflix. Almost all of them had Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in them. I'm wondering what Star Wars would be like if it was produced by Hammer. I'm sure Cushing would remain as Tarkin and Dave Prowse (another Hammer alumni) would still be Vader. I could see Lee playing Ben Kenobi. Of course, there would have to be more violance and some nudity but it would still somehow be rated PG. Princess Leia could be played by Ingrid Pitt. What do you think ANH would be like if produced by Hammer?

Watto's Junk Yard / The bad b-movie thread
« on: July 19, 2012, 11:01 AM »
Post your favorite bad movies here. I'll start out with one that I watched last night on Netflix.

Just finished watching the god awful StarCrash. This movie goes to prove that you can make spaceships out of anything include golf balls and dixie cups. Its always good to have the ship fly over a desert planet at the beginning of the movie.
The movie stars the James Bond girl from The Spy Who Loved Me along with a guy with a huge perm. They must rescue the Emporer's son before evil Count Chocula uses his lava lamp weapon on the Emporer's home planet. The lava lamp makes people see monsters. Along the way, she must battle, bikini clad amazon girls, a giant female robot (complete with huge metal boobs), jumping cave men and incite a riot on a prison planet all while wearing a leather dominatrix bikini.

She gets help from a robot that looks like a cross between a stormtrooper and darth vader but talks like the sheriff from Smoky and the Bandit. She finds the Emporer's son, David Hasselhoff, who must use a lightsaber to fight off stop motion robots! Our heros have a big space battle. They fire torpedos thru the space windows of Count Chocula's fortress that looks like a giant claw. The fortress does not decompress. Soldiers then jump out of the torpedos and start a fight. Why couldn't they just put a bomb in one of the torpedos? The bad guys blow up all the good guys ships and kill the boarding party. The Emporer finally decides to ram a big city ship into the fortress and he gets the Bond girl to pilot the ship. On impact, she jumps out of the ship and swims back to a rescue ship. It's a good thing you can swim in space. Horray the galaxy is saved!

A cut scene from Revenge of the Sith!

I've had dreams that start this way.

It's full of Stars!

Mike Brady doesn't have anything on this guy.

The best southern talking robot since old B.O.B. in the Black Hole

Watto's Junk Yard / Xbox One

A power point presentation has been leaked by Microsoft on the new XBox. It's to be released next year for $299. It's six times faster than the 360, includes a new Kinect, 3d glasses, connectivity with tables/phones, lots of online services and a blu-ray player. It looks like a dvd player.

The Original Trilogy / Torchering droids?
« on: May 27, 2012, 10:38 AM »
Granted it was a fun scene in ROTJ to see droids being torchered but what's the point? Are we suppose to believe droids can feel pain? Why destroy perfectly good equipment? Why didn't EV-9D9 just wipe R2 and 3PO's memory as standard procedure on getting new droids?

Watto's Junk Yard / New Atari 2600 game - Star Castle!
« on: April 27, 2012, 10:43 AM »
Besides collecting star wars figures my other hobby is collecting video games and consoles.

Atari was working on a version of Star Castle for the Atari 2600 but it never got finished.  D. Scott Williamson was an Atari employee back in the late 80's. He recently took on the challenge of designing a new version of the arcade game Star Castle for the Atari 2600. He has a kickstarter project going right now. For a donation you get the ROM and the Stella emulator to run it. For more, you get the actual cartridge!

Go check out this project on Kickstarter.

Watto's Junk Yard / What is going on in this video?
« on: April 19, 2012, 09:46 AM »
Any ideas on what is going on in this video?

Got any others we should figure out what is going on in them?

Star Wars Universe / Darth Malgus - an Old Republic Vader?
« on: April 13, 2012, 12:52 PM »
I'm looking at the Darth Malgus figure and he looks alot like Darth Vader minus the upper helmet. If Darth Malgus has the same body damage as Vader, why does General Grevious have to live in a robot suit? General Grevious was suppost to be a prototype Vader. Now we see a thousand years before, the Old Republic had the technology to make a more Vader-like life support system.  It seems to me that Grevious should have looked more like Vader with multiple arms. Why did Grevious get the shaft on technology? Did Grevious have a HMO?

General Rieekan is the oldest figure on the shelves of our local RiteAid in Chino Hills, CA. His current list price is $12.99. Will keep updating this thread until he sells. Currently he has been there for six years and no clearance in sight!

Star Wars Action Figures / Padme custom restoration
« on: February 3, 2012, 10:31 PM »
I recently got around to unpacking my custom figures for a new shelf in the office. One of the figures I did was Battle Arena Padme. I made her from a Microlady and used latex for her clothes. She originally looked like this:

Now she looks like this:

All of the latex is desolving into one gooie mess. It's like her clothes are melting off.

My plan is to restore her. Any suggestions?

The Original Trilogy / Long construction of the first Death Star
« on: January 27, 2012, 11:30 AM »
At the end of ROTS, we see Vader standing on the bridge of a Star Destroyer looking at the framework of the first Death Star. It took the entire clone wars to build it that far. Twenty years later the Death Star is finished. Why did it take so long to build? It seems to me that it should have only taken a few more years. Why did the Rebel Alliance completely ignore the building of this Death Star for twenty years? How could the Empire keep it a complete secret for that long?
