Watto's Junk Yard / How long do you see yourself collecting?
« on: June 10, 2005, 12:09 PM »
A weird thought occured to me the other day at TRU. I saw a guy in his late 60's, if not his early 70's, looking though the ROTS toys. He was faily clean cut and for some reason didn't strike me as a scalper or hotwheels guy. I tried to picture myself at that age still running around and collecting, and it was hard.

I haven't come up with a clear cut answer myself, but have any of you given any thought as to how long you'll be buying toys and such? Perhaps, in a way, Star Wars collections will become the train collections of our Grandfathers.

Just curious.

I was just an industry function that Mike Scully attended. There was confimation that he is one of the script writers of the feature. ;D Now if only Brad Birb and Conan O'Brian were also involved.

Personally I think Vader is just lost in a darkside funk for twenty years. 

More or less. Vader might have been more powerfull pysically, but Palpatine had more wisdom and trickery.

I don't supose anyone has heard anything on the rumor mill about whether or not we're going to see a round 3 of these shipping?

Death Star all the way for me baby! I loved taking it apart in battle damage scenarios and rebuilding it. Also always wanted more than one to make a bigger base. I recenly bought a second, but don't have the room to connect them yet.

I made a deal with my brother. I got all the Star Wars toys and my brother got all the Gi Joes and Transformers. We had a decent collection, but not everything. Minus the Blue snaggletooth, we had all figures up to, but not including POTF and about half the ships.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Deluxe Figures
« on: June 9, 2005, 12:28 PM »
I really like the Stass Allie Pack in figure. She's not bad at all for a pack in. In fact..I like her over any Adi Gallia Hasbro has produed over these past few years.

Actually, the most interesting thing about her is the skirt. I think she is the first figure with a plastic skirt in where the skirt is cut properly to allower her to sit. I would have liked to have seen this on Kit fisto and Plo Koon.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS Deluxe Clone 3-pack

This sucks. I don't even remember those clones from the movie,

I don't think they were in the movie. :P

I wish the mock up pack was one of the sets. I would have been very happy with one of each color.

Same here. Much easier.

So let's see, we got a red Commander Thire who is arguably not even seen in the movie, jet pack clones who aren't seen at all, a $12.99 Target "exclusive" (eBay exclusive) clone that has Neyo legion markings, but not a Neyo legion helmet that has no role in the movie, 2 different white clones which barely have roles, and the 2 colored clones in the deluxe pack which also are not on screen.

Hrmmm.

Should we not have orange Cody clones, blue 501st temple raid clones, and red coruscant clones instead?

I feel like what we've gotten so far is from a different movie than the one that I saw.

On top of that, let's face it, these 3-pack clones look like total garbage next to clone #6 and clone #41.

Right on! But you know, the truly annoying part is, do you see any of that stuff sitting on the shelves?

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Target Figure with Cup Sets
« on: June 8, 2005, 11:56 AM »
I actually though the ROTS cups would go on clearance due to poor sales. I wonder if they produced less this time around or sold more.

I have to admit that this looks like a nice piece. I might have to pick an extra one up to open.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: ROTS DVD Nov 1st
« on: June 7, 2005, 04:10 PM »
He better do the definitive set. If he doesn't, I'll blame the Star Wars community at large for making him release the other prequels before he was ready. >:(

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Can Sith Beat Titanic?
« on: June 7, 2005, 04:05 PM »
I think the lackluster performances of AOTC and TPM (as far as public opinion goes) really hurt ROTS's chances...  People sour on a franchise and I think a lot soured on Star Wars after 1999 passed us by.

No, I think it has to do with the fact the ROTS isn't that better than it's prequel predicessors (as far a public opinion goes.)  :o

Actually, I think what everyone has to realize is that Star Wars has s built in audience. Unless the films were God Awful, they would earn $300 miliion plus easy per film if they kept making them, and it would be roughly the same audience. What'll keep it going is getting John Q Publics butt's in the seats, and that's done with strong word of mouth. I know ROTS is getting favorable reviews and is hailed the best of the prequels, but that's not saying much if you're not a Star Wars fan and if word of mouth isn't that strong, which it's not for ROTS.
