So how are people going to display the Maul saber?  There's no case that's big enough for it, right?  Hmm...

I had planned on displaying it behind my Obi-Wan mini-sabers, from over-head it would have a sort of triangle lok to it, but when I ordered the As First Buit Obi-Wan saber the other night, I ended up ordering two of the display cases.  I think now, I'll display it in front of the cases.  I now have to figure out where I'm going to display the ROTS Obi-Wan LE saber I purchased.   :)

Are we supposed to get a membership card or something?  The only thing that came in the box (under the plastic) was the saber, a COA, the stand and clips, and a badge.  There looks like there's a spot for a card, but that was empty.  ::)

According to the website, you're supposed to get:

o A personalized Membership Card and ID Number
o An exclusive CS 2005 embroidered patch
o The Replica Report featuring behind the scenes on how we make your favorite replicas

On another note, the As First Built By Obi-Wan mini-saber is a CS exclusive.

Another Heads up for people who need it.  The 2004 Convention Exclusive Obi-Wan "As First Built" Mini-Saber is available on the MR website.

I'm not sure if it's a collector's society or not.

Also Yesterday, NASA launched the Mars Orbiter.

Hopefully the brainiac engineers at NASA remembered to convert their units of measure this time so it will get to the correct orbit around Mars and not have a ballistic entry into it!  ::)

That's what I've been doing with my comcast account Corran, but recent;y started getting this spam.

Oddly enough, it's about the same time I dropped my cable TV service and went with Direct Tv.  :-\

Another nice thorough review Jesse.  I just can't believe you opened one with a BLUE SABER!  :o

My home account through my server is seeing a number of new spams I can't seem to get filtered out...  This just happened in the last week or perhaps 2.  Frustrating since I'd kept that account pretty much clean till now.

Hotmail and Yahoo are always a cluster****.

Jesse, do you use comcast?  I've noticed the same thing with my comcast account.

Welcome to the boards.  I think you'll find it's a great group of people, although if you are a strict carded collector, avoid the Open Figure Theater thread.   :)

I don't know if any of you watched the show Icons on G4 Tv, but tonight's episode was a history of Lucasarts' Star Wars titles.  They talked about the highpoints (Dark Forces, the X-wing/TIE Fighter series, and KOTOR) and the lows (Force Commander {Sorry Jesse}, Masters of Teras Kasi, and Power Battles).

I thought it was pretty interesting, and if you missed it, it'll be on again 14 August.

Another great review Jesse, very thorough.

I agree that the New Ki Adi figure is awesome, but I really don't have too many gripes about the Episode 1 version either.  I don't think you can compare the quality of an Episode 1 figure to what we're getting today and say it's of poorer quality.  6 years ago, most SW figures only came with the standard 6-point articulation.  I thought his sculpt was good and his comm-tech chip actually sounded like the character!

I like these as well.  I'm looking forward to seeing what the Holiday Vader will look like.

I'll probably get one for my nephew as well since he thinks Darth Vader is really cool.  ;D

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Battlestar Galactica...who's watching?

I picked the UK set up yesterday and it says deleted/extra scenes right on the front package.

I haven't had the chance to watch any yet, but the British TV/commercial format is a little different than the US which allows for about 5 minutes of extra footage in each episode, that's why if you ever caught Monty Python or any other BBC shows on american TV, they would go 5 minutes past the hour/half hour.

It wasn't Anakin that Jacen talked with, it was Vergere, when she sacrificed herself so that Jacen could get away.

Good points in your post Corran, but I still see some inconsistencies.  Qui-gon had been dead for 13 years by the end of ROTS when Yoda and Obi-Wan were still able to commune with him, and by Heir to the Empire, Obi-Wan had only been dead for 8 and could no longer keep in contact with Luke....Yoda was nowhere to be found.

I guess we don't know how long Qui-Gon kept Obi-Wan company on Tatooine, but still, you'd think Yoda and Obi-Wan could've talked with Luke and the other Jedi longer.
