The announcers made some Star Wars comments towards the end of the race as well.

Jeff Gordon even thanked Yoda in the winner's circle.  ;D

The Jedi Mickey was rumored to have a non-Star Wars Weeknds version released, but that never happened.

I've never tried to order stuff through the Disney Store before Beth.  Anyone know about this?

Jeff Gordon just won the race at Talladega in his Star Wars Themed car!

I'm not a huge fan of JG, but I thught it was cool that he won in this car.

I know I thanked you in PM over at RS Sharon, but thanks again for trying to get me one of those Vader Mickey's!

I saw this auction on first I kinda freaked out at the ending price, but I guess it's not too bad since the proceeds are going to a worthy charity.

And where does Luke Say it in ANH?

Toy Reviews / ARC-170 Fighter
« on: April 30, 2005, 06:37 PM »
Now that I finally have some pilots for this fighter, I thought I'd write a small review of it.

Scale:  I think this vehicle is in perfect scale for the 3 3/4" figures.  The three pilots fit in it quite well, and so does the R4 unit (I put in the ROTS Preview R4 unit).  From the footage of the fighter in the trailers, I think Hasbro got this one dead on the mark.

Detail:  There's a lot of detail in this fighter, but I think there could be more.  They gave quite a bit of decals for this, but in the second seat (the Nav/WSO/EWO guy), there's two raised spots on the console, but there are no decals for them.  I think they would've been perfect for some kind of decals for some displays, but there are none.  There is also nothing in the tailgunner position, but I tink if there was actually something in there, the figure would not fit.

Playability:  I think this is one of Hasbro's best works to date!  There's tons of it for a kid to do.  The most interesting feature is the handle that actually folds into the ship, and was not made as part of the landing gear that has been done in previous vehicles (the Imperial Shuttle readily comes to mind).  There is also a trigger on the handle that drops the proton torpedo "Bombs" and the large wing-mounted guns also have firing projectiles that go pretty far!  (Another feature that scared my cat!)  My only complaint here is that the socket for the droid is a little too big, so the droid can fall out if you invert the fighter during a dogfight.

Overall:  This is the best vehicle Hasbro has made in the ROTS line that I have pilots for!  I'm guessing that the Obi-Wan starfighter will surpass this one once I get a pilot for it, but until then, this one reigns supreme!  5/5!

Stormtroopers: 2

Snowtoopers: 2

What a huge imperial army eh?  ;D

That's not a complete answer.

The Wookiee Arcade / Dark Forces Mod for Jedi Academy!
« on: April 30, 2005, 06:13 PM »
I stumbled across this while downloading a patch for Battlefront.  It's the first few levels of Dark Forces but created for the updated grapics of Jedi Academy!  It's not without a few bugs, as read about on the page, but it still looks pretty interesting.

You can view/download it here.

Anyone try it yet???

I'e got a few scattered around.  Somewhere in my parents' house are a few Time Magazines with Star Wars covers.  The ROTJ one was pretty cool, because the cover was an illustration of GL with all the SW characters around him.  The article even talked about him doing the Prequels someday, as well as episodes 7-9 if the actors looked old enough!

I also have the Vanity Fair from this year showing actors from all 6 movies, pretty good article too, and some others.

There's also a similar display in the Naboo Fighter in Episode I.

Perhaps, Valin, but it's a common literary trait.  Just about every author does it.

For instace, I'm a big fan of Dan Brown's books and have read them all, but they almost have the same plot to them....just different settings.  It doesn't mean I won't buy his next book when it comes out.  :)

I have each of the vehicles now available, and so far I really like the Obi-Wan starfighter, now I ust need a pilot for it!

The ARC-170 is also a well done vehilce, I just wish there were a couple more decals for displays for the middle seat.

I like these EE sets, although the "get one of each type" option isn't available right now.  I'm sure that'll change soon.
