I got home from alert today and in the mail was the last of the series for Episode III (and possibly ever).  The Jeff Gordon Elite.
And I think they saved the best for last!

Packaging: Although this one lacks the nice paint schemes that the previous boxes have, this is clearly a superior package for this car.  It's all black, with the Elite logo in gold.  Instead of a top and bottom as the others have, this is a hinged box revealing the car inside, although wrapped in a black lint-free cloth.  Very well done.

Paint:  The paint scheme is the same as the car Jeff Gordon won at Talladega this year.  Plenty of detail with the various sponsor logos, the only true Star Wars items on it are the Yoda and the Star Wars logo on the hood.  Still, a lot of detail went into it and it is the authentic paint scheme for the actual car.

Detail:  I thought all the other cars in the Episode III series had incredible detail until I got this one!!!  Not only does this car have all the detail of the previous's expounded upon them ten-fold.  There are tethers under the hood, trunk and roof-flaps.  The hood and trunk have extra metal hinges on them which help to keep them open.  The cockpit is absolutely incredible!  There's a seatbelt, cables running throughout and even one to the steering wheel which all I can think is it's some type of tether since the steering wheels are removable to get the driver in and out.  Also, the webbing on the driver's side window is actual cloth and not plastic as in all previous cars!

Overall:  I think this car would be a fitting end to the series.  I honestly don't know how they could improve upon it!!!

Kevin....that's over 10 lbs per week.

Are you sure that's healthy????

I'd check with a doctor if I were you.

Other Collectibles / Re: Jedi Mickey plush from SW Weekends

I managed to grab one off of ebay for not too bad a price.

It's a pretty cool piece in the collection and looks nice next to the Jedi Mickey.  :)

I watched Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi while on alert and I think those shoulder pieces are fairly accurate on the Medicom Stormtrooper.  :)

Been a while since this was updated.

Power of the Jedi / Re: R2-Q5 ERROR . ARE THEY ALL LIKE THIS

I think they all have that error.  Kind of like the Imperial Sentinel was misspelled on the POTF EU cards.

Should we be calling you Mr. President then?   ;)

No....I'm just the guy who gets to launch them.  Not the one that gives the order.

I'm kind of shocked....I thought they would've convicted on the freak factor alone!

I guess the accusers just were not believable.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Question about Anakin's injuries?
« on: June 13, 2005, 05:02 PM »
I've seen the film seven times now and I think he cuts the legs off in the main swing and gets the arm in a slight upswing at the end.

And he couldn't cut him in half....then we'd have no episodes 4, 5 and 6!   ;D

Seriously, I think he could've cut him in half on the bank, but he really didn't want to kill the end, he left it up to the will of the Force if Anakin/Vader lived or died.

I'm going to see Dada for the 4th time this Saturday!

It's the first time I'll see them in an open-air venue.

I don't think I'm going to go see this movie.  It just doesn;t appeal to me like the original does. :-\

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: What the hell are they riding?
« on: June 8, 2005, 07:34 PM »
There's a great picture of that clone and his mount in the ROTS movie program.  Alas, there is no description of the creature, it looks like a giant slug.

I think there were some ideas that he had in mind all along and some he didn't.

Vader being Luke's Father?  Definitely.  I think there were clues in ANH about this....the exchange between Owen and Beru about Luke.

Luke and Leia being brother and sister.  Maybe I'm reading a little too much into it, but I think there are subtle hints in ANH for this as well.  Just the way Ben looks at Luke after viewing the message from Leia.  I think it was one of those ideas GL was toying with, and when he made the sequels, he decided to expound on it.  (afterall, Luke needed someone to train post ROTJ.)

Some things he made up along the way: Qui-Gon Jinn (not originally part of the grand scheme but he fits quite well), Jar-Jar Binks (probably best kept out of the whole thing), Watto (another idea that popped into his head) and stuff along those lines in the prequels.

Good writers always have some over-arcing plot, but they leave room to add things.  Hell, GL even substituted wookies in ROTJ for Ewoks because he made Wookies far less primitive than he needed for the script.

From what I can tell, the "fuel tank" sequence was to occur just after Grievous murdered Shaak Ti in front of Anakin and Obi-Wan on The Invisible Hand.  Once Grievous had impaled her from behind (minds out of the gutter!), loads of droids would converge on Anakin and Obi-Wan, who would then use their lightsabers to cut a hole in the floor (similar to what Anakin did with the elevator) and drop through to the next level.

How could Grievous kill Shaak Ti when you see her in the Jedi Coucil later on in the movie?
