Watto's Junk Yard / Re: A question about Paypal & Visa

Paypal is pretty safe to use, and from what I've heard, very good at getting refunds if you end up dealing with a bad seller.

So whichever you decide to use, I'm sure you're covered.

A while back in the RS forums, someone posted a link to something similar to that case, but it hung on the wall.  They purchased one or two and had all their loose figures in them.  I thought it was a great idea, although I still have yet to get one for myself.

Yeah, I got my somplete set of CI passes through the FC.  Same with the insider ones, because they were giving them out with figures.  I missed out on the CII passes because I was doing push-ups at OTS at the time, and you never see these things on eBay because the people who get them aren't getting them to re-sell on ebay.

Doesn't discourage the hunt though!  ;D

I think she might've changed her mind on the creation of the military, but I don't think she would've voted to give Palpatine emergency powers.  He leadership would've made that move unnecessary since she could influence the rest of the senateo to vote for it.

Jar Jar was duped by Mas Amedda and Palpatine to vote for Emergency Powers only.

The Prequel Trilogy / Parallels between the PT and the OT

I'm sure most of you have picked up on this, but I thought it would be kinda cool to point some of them out.

First Movie:
- An older Jedi Master dies at the hand of a sith lord.
- There is a celebration ceremony at the closing credits showing our heroes on a dais.
- Skywalker destroys the Enemy's major weaopn by some nonconventional tactic.
- Skywalker leaves Tatooine and feels some sort of loss

Second Movie:
- There's a space battle in an asteroid field.
- Skywalker, the heroine, R2 and Threepio stare out at an uncertain future before the closing credits.
- Skywalker loses part of an arm.
- R2-D2 has to Put C-3PO back together.
- The lower ranking Sith Lord tries to get a Jedi Hero to join him.

I'm sure there are others, but I can't think of them right now.  I'm also not going to touch the ROTJ/ROTS similarities just because I'm trying to stay away from Spoilers, although I can readliy point to a lightsaber battle that looks errily familiar from the previews.

Can you think of any I missed????

Other Collectibles / Star Wars Convention Passes & Badges

I have a few of these, an entire set of the Celebration passes from the FC (The Jar Jar one was autographed by Ahmed Best) and I have three of the SW Insider passes, #1 Mara Jade, #4 Wuher and #5 Darth Vader. I always theought these were cool and fairly unique items to have, and that categorey tends to be my favorite part of my collection.

Does anyone else have these and, more importantly, anyone know where I caould go to try and complete the sets????

Looks like you already got your answer for why I like em JesseVader.  As for the UV protection...I can't say one way or the other, but there is a bit of a tint to them which would lead me to believe that they are.

It could aslo be because they are a bit thicker or just a different type of plastic.

The spudtrooper looks kinda cool.  I'd like to see a finished product before I commit to getting one though.  Still, seeing as I got the Darth Tater, I think I can pick up a couple of these for the niece and nephew as well.  ;D

ruiner, if you want me to look around here, pm me and I'll pick one up for you.  Last time I looked, they were fairly plentiful.

12" Figures / Re: 12" Plo Koon
« on: April 8, 2005, 02:43 PM »
I think Jokafobe is right.  Plo Koon was planned as an exclusive, but the deal never materialized.  There was a low production number because of that and they were only available through a couple of online outlets.

I got mine on eBay for a BIN that was fairly resonable (compared to what this figure goes for now)!

So're making SE photnovels now?????   ;D

I'll check out what you're talking about, JediMac....I haven't had a chance to yet today.  I honestly don't know how may photonovels there are, I just threw out the idea of them having their own place.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Fun with the Military!

I've tried to analyze the Attack on the first Death Star using the Doctrine and Strategies I've learned in my 12 years+ of Air Force experience.

All I can think of is that 2/3 of the Republic fighter pilots are completely retarted!  WTF were they thinking just flying around behind the lead ship in the trench so they could be shot at???  Why not set up a CAP over the trench and keep all the TIEs out of the area??

I wasn't planning on it.  Someone over at RS said they were going to try and get me one.

I just thought it was kind of odd that they're showing up already on ebay.

Looks like people are already trying to cash in on the Vader Mickey.

I think ebay is your best bet with this.  Just make sure it has all the parts, I got one a while back and it was missing the small black hatch at the bottom.  :-\
