I'm definitely glad that I joined, and am allowed to contribute, to these forums.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Rebelscum Spam Mail? WTF???
« on: April 11, 2005, 03:37 PM »

Matt Fury posted a goodbye thread, and while some of us expressed our regret, some of the newbies went on the attack about him being childish.  I got into a heated argument with a couple of them.

I went to check to see who had posted into that thread today and was shocked that it was deleted, along with the one going on in the feedback thread.  I had put a lot of thought into that goodbye, since I had been in there for five years, and didn't want it to turn into some sort of flame war.

I replied to the banning e-mail and told Philip that I didn't appreciate it being deleted, he could've just had it locked.  Oh well, he can run his little fiefdom into the ground for all I care.

12" Figures / Re: Your 12" Figure Collection .
« on: April 10, 2005, 05:18 PM »
I have about 30 or so figures, ranging from POTF2 to ROTS.  I have no desire to be a 12" completeist....I just get the ones I find interesting, like just about anyone who holds a lightsaber!

Some of my favorite pieces:

- Biker Scout with Speeder Bike
- Darth Maul with Sith Speeder (although I have the original 12" Darth Maul on the Speeder)
- Electronic Darth Vader
- Medicom Luke

As funny as the story has a bit of a sad ending.

Even MY cat, Bailey look a little upset about it.  :'(

I've met Yodafan and Sith Lord Chaos.

Either I or the rest of you need to get out more!  ;D

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: A question about Paypal & Visa
« on: April 10, 2005, 12:06 PM »
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
« on: April 8, 2005, 03:01 PM »
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
« on: April 8, 2005, 02:53 PM »
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.
