I was a little shocked that they killed him off, but seeing how the story has unfolded so far, it makes sense.

- If Obi-Wan didn't kill Maul, the council would not have promoted him to Jedi Knight without taking the trials and he probably wouldn't have taken Anakin as a Padawan.

- As cool as Darth Maul was as a Sith he could not have pulled of the deal with the Sepratists.  Dooku/Tyrannus was perfect for this since he was much more charismatic and Nute Gunray would not associate him with Darth Sidious, allowing Sidious to still work his plan behind the scenes.

I thought TPM was pretty good, I think the only failing the PT has had is in Lucas' directing ability, or lack thre of.  Just remember, you have to see all three movies as one story....kinda like how Lord of the Rings was made.

Yes, there is a little display inside that has a display and some buttons that make the display light up and some recorded phrases from ESB play when you press them.  It takes a good chunk of the troop carrying capability out of the "hold" but it's still a pretty cool feature.

Collector's Tips / Re: Moving a collection
« on: April 28, 2005, 12:48 PM »
I've moved a few times with my collection.  I've dealt with movers too so you may have it a little better if you're moving yourself, but not too much of a difference.

I put everything into large rubbermaid bins.  My carded collection came through just fine with a couple of dinged bubbles when one mover dropped a bin down a flight of stairs and the lid popped off.  Now that all my Carded figures (on the "standard" sized cards anyway) are in protecto-paks, I forsee no further trouble there.

If you kept the boxes for your ships, I'd suggest putting them back in them.  Otherwise, I'd suggest dismantling them as much as possible putting them in rubbermaid bins and wrap them in towells or something for padding.

Hope this helps.  I'll post more if I can think of anything.

We're having another batch of lovely weather here in the Colorado/Wyoming part of the country....April 28th and it's snowing!  Well, I get up this morning at 4 am to go PT this morning and I had enough "OH ****" moments that I didn't need to do any cardio today!  :o

I bought a Jeep Liberty when I got here (my Lt Mobile) and it's the first 4-wheel drive vehicle I've ever owned.  It's awesome in this kind of weather, increases your traction by 1000%.  Just remember zero multiplied by 1000 is STILL ZERO!  Every overpass on I-25 was nothing but ice under slush....and I swear I saw about 30 cars off in the median or off to the side of the road.  Luckily, CDOT and WYDOT are great at helping stranded/unsuspecting motorists, otherwise I'd never have gotten to base because I would've been helping everybody!

Anyhow, just a little safety tip from you're Uncle Matt...be careful out there!   ;D

Add me to the list.  I've noticed that OB/GYN's freak out at almost anything, especially if the mother is in the early stages of pregnancy.

The waiting is the worst part though.

Welcome to the boards Capt Obvious.  Even though I'm a 1st Lt, I generally don't call Captains "sir" or "ma'am".   :P

Yeah, such a shame really.  Hopefully, people will be patient and wait for the hype to die down and get this figure for a more reasonable price.

Oh and Brian's Toys does suck.
