Revenge of the Sith / Re: New pics of 51-56

I think they all look good, but I'm kind of suprised that they didn't go with soft goods for Obi-Wan's cloak so he could sit in the starfighter.

Just an odd choice imo.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: What figures are hard to find now?
« on: June 2, 2005, 08:18 PM »
The two toughest to find figures for me have been:

Red Royal Guard (never saw him at retail)
AT-TE Gunner (only saw twice at retail)

Power of the Force 2 / Re: The Beginning of POTF2
« on: June 2, 2005, 08:16 PM »
When the POTF2 figures came out, I stumbled across them in the store and thought it was pretty neat to see SW figures on the pegs after about a decade, but didn't collect them.

The first POTF2 figures I got were two Theater Edition Lukes when I went to see ROTJ SE in the theater opening day.

I didn't really get into collecting them until 1999 when TPM came out, and then I was mainly collecting Episode 1 figures,, but eventually went after the POTF2 stuff as well....especially when the quality improved.

Welcome neo.  Always nice to have someone new to the hobby join the boards.  There's plenty of resources here to learn from and share your insights as a newer collector.

I do feel sorry for you if you decide to be a completeist now though!  :o

Welcome to the community Amy.

BTW...aren't we all just a little crazy?  We all have houses full of little (and some not so litte) Star Wars figures! ;D

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Take a Penny, Leave a Penny
« on: June 1, 2005, 04:34 PM »
Usually, if what I'm purchasing comes up to just over a dollar amount, the cashier will grab the pennies...I don't think I've ever touched it unless I was putting some in.

On a related topic, reading this thread reminded me of a time I was in a walmart buying something and the only money I had was a roll of dimes.  The cashier was kinda snotty and said they don't take rolled coins...so I smacked the roll on the counter let the dimes spill out an the countrtop and said, Is my money good now?"  The total for what I was buying came to about $4.95, and I waited until I got my change too!  ;D

Revenge of the Sith / Re: 500th commemorative figure... Vader?
« on: June 1, 2005, 04:19 PM »
Did you count droids that were repaints/different colored plastics as new figures because they came on separate cards?  What about figures like Oola, Muftak and Kabe, which were only promo/mail in items?

Just curious, because that could change your numbers too.

The $64 one has more detail:

die-cast body, chassis, and tie-rod assembly
detailed interior with dual ignition
opening hood
manufacturer-specific engine
opening trunk with fuel cell
roof with opening flaps and camera mount
working steering
wheels that pose
front and rear shocks
disc brakes


The $40 one has a little less in the detail department:

die-cast body
plastic chassis
opening hood
wheels that pose
manufacturer-specific engine
high-quality paint
tampo-printed graphics


They are the same size and the paint jobs are the same though.

Woodward and Bernstien are not confirming it.  I don't think we'll know for sure until they do.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Post your ROTS reviews and thoughts!
« on: May 31, 2005, 04:00 PM »
Wow...there's definitely a trend of people who were all into spoilers not liking this film and those who tried to avoid them liking it.

I'm glad I resisted the temptation.

TV-9D9 / Re: TV series predictions (and wishes)
« on: May 31, 2005, 03:57 PM »
I like the idea, but expand it a bit to be an arc of 2 or 3 episodes for a story, sort of like what Enterprise did in it's final season. That gives a lot more room to work with in terms of storytelling. A traditional TV series would require at least one re-occuring character, but since this is Star Wars most viewers would be able to accept your concept Tydirium, especially if there was an overall link to each arc.

How's this for an idea for a recurring character?

The recurring character could be Yoda, sitting on Dagobah, and using the force to follow galactic events.  Sort of like Alfred Hitchcock in the series he had years ago.  He somehow introduces the characters and the situation they're in, and we watch it unfold.  Then he shows up at the end and gives some sort of moral to the story.

Cleveland has the Rock n Roll hall of fame.

Detroit (well a quasi furturistic Detroit) is the setting for Robocop.

I think it's a draw.
