Toy Reviews / AT-RT Review
« on: April 21, 2005, 11:15 PM »
I managed to finally find one of these today and figured I'd share a few thoughts on the figure/vehicle.

Driver:  This has to be one of the most craptacular figures I have ever seen.  The figure has 5 points of articulation, Head, Shoulders waist and right elbow....that's it.  So, basically, the figure can only sit on the AT-RT.  I've heard rumors that the paint on this figure is hit or miss from some earlier reports from people who found it on 2 April, but the ones I saw at Target today were just fine IMO.

Vehicle: For a small vehicle, it's pretty cool.  Not a whole lot of detail in the sculpt of the parts, and not much paint, but it has it where it counts.  There's a small painted display between the "handle bars" which looks pretty neat.  There's also a pivoting Chin Gun and a walking feature which requires two AA batteries.  The walking feature is what makes this vehicle worht having IMO.  It works great on tile/wood floors or couter/desk tops, and I evenhad it walking on the carpet in my place, albiet not as well as the non-carpeted floor.  Really freaked out my cat too!   ;D

Overall, I'd give this figure/vehicle a 3 out of 5.  There's a lot of playability with the vehicle, but the one-dimensionality of the figure brings it down.  If they had made the legs articulated so the figure could be on it's own away from the vehicle, this thing would be great!

Anakin's post-traumatic stress disorder embodied.

Jesus, that caption sucked. This pic was just too good to pass up.

Hmmm  Seller with a Feedback of 13 and a buyer with private feedback.  I have a bad feeling about this.  ::)

Glad to see you here DB.  Get enough people to follow you over and an already great Vintage section could be downright outstanding!

Ya know, the new pope looks like Phillip Wise. Does that mean that if Wise looks like the Pope and the Pope looks like Sideous therefore Wise looks like (and acts) like Sideous?

I think he actually looks younger than PW!  Now that I've said that, does that mean I no longer deserve Star Wars?

I have the episode 1 Maul and Obi-Wan sabers.  I have a photo of a friend of mine back in Alaska dueling with me! ;D

I just picked up one of these trailers on ebay for fairly cheap.  I love getting odd unique things like this for my collection and plan on trying for more!

Sorry you feel that way Zod, it really is a decent show.  Good writing and well cast.  If you can get past the fact that the nun's hot (I've been a Catholic my whole life and every nun I've ever met has been a bitter-old battleaxe of a harpy-woman!), and that she hasn't smacked Bill Pullman with a ruler for having doubts, it's very compelling. ;D

His papacy isn't even 24 hours old and already people are ripping him and crtitcizing him.   ::)

I wish him the best, he has some very big shoes to fill.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Anyone else hate to fly?
« on: April 19, 2005, 05:51 PM »
I love flying, especially when I'm the one flying the plane!  I'm the kind of guy that can sit on a plane in mid-flight and read magazine articles about plane crashes.

I just wish I could still bring my swiss-army knife and zippo lighter with me.

Got my first mini saber today!  It's the AOTC Obi-Wan saber.  I love the detail, even if it's less than half the actual size.

Hopefully the ROTS Obi-Wan saber I ordered will be off back-order soon.

I like the Grievous, but I have yet to take any of my 12" ROTS figures out of their packaging.
