Precisely how many licks does it take to get to the tootsieroll center of a tootsie pop?

I think the best one is the Wookie Commando....he looks really cool.

Passel Argente and Cat Miin are also pretty cool looking.

Bly looks pretty good....I don't open them, but he looks to have some good articulation.  Jesse, I'm awaiting your review!

Even though the Commander Gree figure doesn't look like the actual character, he looks ok for a green clone trooper. (I do wish they had gotten him right though....you'd think someone would've noticed the packaging at the Hasblo plant)

If you want to see some bitter fans of the original series, read the boards at cylon.org. Damn, these people only watch the show so they can bitch about it. One guy even says it outright.

That sounds like some people on these forums about the prequels.  But I digress.

I was a fan of the Original BSG when I was a kid, and I'm a fan of the new one....but I don't try to compare them for a second...the new series is a complete re-imagination of the story, and I like what they're doing so far.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: ROTS Deleted Scenes
« on: September 26, 2005, 03:31 PM »
I just read the article on the official site about the dvd extras and one of the deleted scenes added to the movie will be Yoda arriving on Dagobah.

ILM's gone back and finished the deleted scenes and will be on disc two of the set.

This puts us one step closer to the Expanded Edition set I hope will be made someday!  :D

Beth,

If I get called into work on Wednesday, I won't get home until sometime Thursday afternoon, and the saber goes on sale 10 am local time here.  I'm considering sacrificing a goat or something in hopes of not being called in on my backup day!

Good luck with the move and I hope you luck out with this saber as well.

I don't really feel sorry for the Cylons after what happened in the Pilot.  I do sympathize with the Sharon cylon because she's at least trying to help out the humans.

The finale was awesome!  All three of the Sci Fi Friday shows ended on cliffhangers.  DAMMIT!

Its sort of been hinted at so far that Walt has something special about him, and maybe we'll start to see more of what that is. 

Yeah it's been more than hinted.  His mom's new boyfriend outright wanted Michael to take custody of him because "weird things happen when he's around."  He was reading a book about birds when all of the sudden one came screaming into the window and broke it's neck.  He's a freaky little kid.

Don't forget, he's also the reason the Polar Bear kept showing up.

Re: New Force,

It looks bad, but it's not really that bad.  Rick and the gang over there have made a conscious decision to hold off on a lot of the activity on full cases this year.  Being a smaller retailer, they realized that many of these figures would hit the big boys (TRU/Target/etc) before them, so they've held off.

They've said that in a movie year, it's hard for them to compete with the big boys because retail get product faster.  NewForce have put up a few of the "collector interest things" - Evolutions, BH 7-pack, Wedge, Clone Variant cases, etc.  They have even ordered a few things for me when I sent an e-mail, even though they weren't listed on the site.

They do a pretty good business with their retail stuff and then there is the "other" on-line stuff they sell - DCD, Diamond, Star Trek, etc.  I don't think they are in any financial trouble or anything, just decided to play it low key because of the movie year and the fact that orders go way down when stuff is rampantly available at retail.



Thanks for the info Jeff.  I dealt with Newforce quite a bit during the POTJ waves.  In my opinion, they are hands down the best internet store going!

Looks like the Sci Fi channel won't have all the episodes aired by this Friday when the movie premiers.  Guess I'm going to have to pick up the dvd set.

Not a big deal, since I planned on doing it anyway.

Hey Beth, could you order this through MR's 800 number?  Just a thought.

Also...where on the website will this saber go up for sale?  The LE section or somewhere else?

If I recall correctly, the writes of the show have debunked the "they're in Purgatory" idea.

This is the only topic I could find about the show.

Anyone catch the premier last night?

Again, I ended up standing up in front of my tv yelling, "What the ****?!!" at the end of the show.
