I missed the first season and Boxy wasn't in the recap bring you up to speed episode (that I noticed) - what was the deal with Boxy?

Boxie (sp?) was in the mini-series and a couple of the first episodes of the first season (you missed out on some good shows so I recommend either buying them or find them at your local video store or library). Suddenly he wasn't on the show anymore. I figured he would play predominantly in the show, just a recurring character. But three seasons later, no show.

I was wondering about Boxy as well. It's a great question to ask the writers at some type of Q&A. I have a feeling that there was a lot of negative cyberchat and the producers responded in kind. But, I will admit that I wasn't too disgusted with the idea of the character and would have liked to see how it panned out.

That's what I'm kind of thinking... perhaps he didn't agree well with a dark series and a mechanical dog (Muffit, sp?). Maybe he would have been the Jar Jar/Ewok of the show. Maybe fans didn't like having a kid on the show like some despised Wesley Crusher. I don't know. *shrugs* Maybe he's one of the 5 unknown Cylons *kidding!!!*

Yes, thanks for the refresher. I've either missed some things in the ten minutes I missed on Ep. 9 or I've had sensory overload (went through Season 2.5 in 2 days) while Season 3 was airing... Thankfully I'm all caught up now.

So for the cliffhanger, we've got Starbuck down and Anders wanting to go after her despite Sam's knowledge of her fooling around on him with Lee and numerous others. From the preview of the next episode, D goes to rescue her. Sharon and Helo know Hera's alive... how will that play out? Hera's sick, can Baltar save her? Too many questions and a few weeks to wait!!

Another interesting thing is: what ever happened to Boxey?? He was in the first few episodes and then disappeared... no explanation. I'll admit I'm glad his not around, but they kind of played his character to tag along with Sharon.

But how did the Cylons find the algae planet, random luck?

That really wasn't answered in the episode. I think someone (Gaeta) was mentioning "fate" being that the Colonials and  Cylons met at one of the sacred places with the system's star about to go nova on them. But I would hope there would be a more fitting answer than coincidence... the galaxy is quite large for that though I've had certain instances of meeting someone I knew thousands of miles from where both of us live. Anyway, I degress.

A plausible answer to the Cylons arriving for the algae planet would be the same reason as the Colonials. Food. Baltar needs something to eat.

Another thing that I can see is more planet-stops along the way. Not just for food and water, but to find more clues for the path to Earth. They got the Arrow at Kobol, now the Eye at the Algae planet...

In the episode 2 weeks ago, the "pilot" of the Cylon basestar (I forget what they call them) tells Baltar where to go in that wierd code language. He basically figures out that its a planet inside a star cluster...and we all remember that's exactly where the humans were going (per Sharon's suggestion, coincidence?).

Thanks Lando for the clarification on how the Cylons knew. I missed part of that episode, so maybe that was it.

Can someone explain to me again why the cylons didn't just wipe the humans out? Does Baltar really have that kind of pull, or was there a bit of information I missed?

As for why they didn't take out the colonial fleet in the episode... the Cylons knew the humans were on the planet and found the temple with the Eye of Jupiter that shows the way to Earth. The Cylons also want this as well therefore wanted to bargain with Adama for the Eye. After realizing they didn't have it, the Cylons (more D'Anna) went about a different tactic to get the Eye... and Adama stated he'd nuke the planet before letting them have it. That's a rough review... there's more to it than that.

As for Baltar, the Cylons kind of revere him. Maybe for his part in the Cylon takeover... maybe for his intellect... Baltar seems to understand things they don't - like when that Basestar Cylon (that are like the psychics from Minority Report) started babbling he understood the riddle.

30th Anniversary Collection / 30th Anniversary Collection = Delayed
« on: December 15, 2006, 03:51 PM »
Hasbro sent along a little 30th Anniversary Collection Update as part of this week's Q&A:

Quote
Due to unavoidable production delays, the first waves of Star Wars 30th Anniversary basic figures for 2007 will be delayed until March. We are looking at every way to get the figures in earlier, but fans should not expect to find them on shelf on 1/1 as we were hoping. We expect subsequent waves beyond the first to be on schedule shortly thereafter. We'll keep everyone updated as needed, but please be patient. Thanks!


Looks like we'll be seeing the Final 22 repack waves for a while...  :-\

This is quite a disappointment since I've really been looking forward to the 30th Anniversary waves. I guess the positive side is that the pocket book will not be taking a hit right away.

I would buy Roron Corrob but there is no need for another Momaw Nadon, we just got one.

I definitely agree and Roron could be a possibilty since we got Foul this year... but it could be a rehash of Momaw. The big H loves repacking crap left and right. Let's hope not though.

Purge Bultar????
momaw nadon Y????Is it a young version or a repack or a jedi?????

I'd prefer a AotC Bultar Swan first than the one from Purge. As for the Momaw Nadon, I wonder if it is Roron Corrob from Clone Wars cartoons???

Again this is just an idea, a possible scenario. What would be stupid is too shoot others ideas down, just because you don't agree with them, that's stupid!

I think it's fun to try and speculate about these possible scenarios (no matter how outrageous) and not get serious about it.  ;D JK Rowling will be the final say as to Harry's fate.  ;)

Man, say what you will about Hasbro, but they've put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into next years line.  From the character specific blister card artwork , to the individually tooled coins, the line is looking to be one of the best ever.

Good stuff.

I agree. The artwork is sweet!! makes one want to weep.
