Revenge of the Sith / Re: Why there are no more pictures of Bly
« on: July 17, 2005, 03:17 PM »
If Hasbro has one ounce of professionalism to their process, the instant that a figure is painted and approved, someone would create a set of Orthorgraphics clearly labeling which color is to be applied to each portion of the figure from all relevant angles - probably noting RGB values as well as simple paint shade terms.  

You know, I just noticed this today, but something tells me that if Hasbro has a photo of Commander Bly in their Comic Con Q n A Presentation then I'm 100% positive that they've already got other photography of the figure to use if they have to go through a re-approval process or something lame like that.

I'm not going to claim I know how exactly the process works for them, but based on my experience, I would think that there are stipulations built into the contract that say figures must be approved via physical inspection of a prototype (since color can never be 100% duplicated via photograph.) I have no doubt that they can whip another one up in precisly the same manner, but the problem is getting Lucasfilms approval. I could be that Lucasfilm is only obligated to approve figures one a month or once every two months, so they may have to wait for the next window to get approval because Lucasfilm is under no obligation to adjust thier scedule due to Hasbro's faults.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Battle Packs (5 figure sets)

Regarding the Target clone 5-pack, I assume that the figures in the packaged sample are not the figures we're getting. It looks like the figures pictures on back are the actual figures right?

I pick up an other couple of clone troopers today.  I'm still in need of a red and green Clone 3-pack, I have two blue for trade. :P

At least AP fessed up as to what happend with the R5 units. I mean, what would we rather have if a new mold was just not possible, no R5's or the POTF2 mold? I hate to say it, but under those conditions, I think they did the right thing. Otherwise we'd have another carded Wedge on our hands.

Thanks Jared for the conformation. Do they have any explaination for doing this? I think it's funny that you say they knew we woudn't be happy which begs me to wonder what happens durring those proposal meetings. Does anyone stand up and say, "you know the collectors are going to piss and moan?"

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: RS deletes accounts
« on: July 17, 2005, 02:32 PM »
I think by accident. At least I hope. I just got another message from one of the Admins. He said there's no guaruntees that my account, and those likewise deleted, can be saved, but they are working on it.

Perhaps some of the tech guys around here can give me some insight. How can this happen? Is it possible that accounts are scattered accross various servers and that the server my acoount was on is down or got erased? Why would there not be a back up?

I have certainly rocked the boat a bit over there, but by no means have I warranted even a warning about anything, let alone getting completely removed. I certainly have never flamed another member nor harshly critizied the staff. In fact, I was asked to be a moderator only two months ago, so I can assume that this is an unfortunate technical issue.

But it is a bummer, my existance on RS has been totally erased. :P

Well, something strange seems to be happening over at RS. My account seems to have been deleted according to administration. It's a little frustrating because, as par for the course, I was given no explaination nor offered any suggestions as to what to do next. I was also told that I was not the only one in this boat and that there was very little that they could do.

This seemed to happen when the forum went down on Friday. Has anyone else had this happen?

What are your thoughts? Thanks.


EDIT:

WOW! I just did some more checking, every post I ever made has been removed.


staff edit:  just changing the name of this thread since it appears it has drifted far from where it started... Jeff

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Can Sith Beat Titanic?

I think #8 is a no-brainer. Movies in the dying weeks are funny, they can still earn a few mill each week and hang in there. I don't think #7 is too far fetched.

I'm waiting with baited breath for a detailed account of the Q&A. The real version with the hard hitting questions, not the watered down versions that those "other" sites give.

After seeing the picture, I like the look, but am glad it's EU so I woun't have to Army build with it. ;)

Crap, Star Wars Chase figures? Screw that ...

I'll buy em if I find em, but I'm not going out of my way to get these friggin repaints.

I don't think they're chase figures. Sure they are one per case, but a lot of figures are one per case and who is to say that latter assortment won't include two or be army building cases?

Saga Collection '06 / Re: VOTC and OTC Returns in 2006!

Actually, it looks like the Star Case they're packing the holo-Leia in would fit the new card design well.

I'm going to like getting back to some good old OT stuff. Beyond the anounced Hoth wave, I would imagine there will be a Tatooine wave based on the Sandtrooper with Black Paldrun, so we know we're going to get a little PT break.

Lack of an R5 unit irritates me as well. We should get on EE's case for not demanding one as a condition of carrying the exclusive. But then again, when has the exclusives branch of Hasbro ever willingly done new sculpts?
