Vintage Kenner / Re: Storing vintage figures
« on: June 14, 2005, 11:55 AM »
I may be wrong, but my experiance says that storing them in carrying cases is very adequate. My stuff got put away durring High School and remained stored though College. I would say they stayed store for more than 10 years before I broke them out to display them and they remained in the same shape as the day I stored them.

Anthony,

Good for you.  So are you complete on the 100?

DBK


I wish. :P I still need Ev9d9 and Luke Stormie. A good friend of mine is going to give me a Luke Stormie whenever he finds it on one of his trips home, and the Ev9d9 I might pick up at Comi-com this year. After that, I think I have to find the proper blasters for a POTF figure or two.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Clone #6 vs Clone #41
« on: June 14, 2005, 11:27 AM »
It's amazing how we can't get an ultimate clone. Both are very excellent, but both have features, all of which have been mentioned, that subtract from perfection. I'm just glad that both are good enough to do some army building with. If I have to give an edge, it's to #41 due to added articulation and slimmer shoulders.

It's a sickness.  I have 10 of the Clone Pilots opened.  Do I need 10 of them? 

 :P

Depends, you need tree for every Arc 170 and two for every gunship. :P

RE: the clone situation, you know, I think Hasbro may have been caught off guard. They designed and planned their clones for the first 56, but Lucas may have added the colors before Hasbro could have done anything about it. Let's see what the next twelve have in store.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS Deluxe Clone 3-pack
« on: June 14, 2005, 11:06 AM »


The clone 3 packs are crap people, let's face it.  The 2 paint designs they threw in don't appear in the movie.  The arms are twigs (what's up with that?) 

But these things are c-r-a-p crap.

Couldn't agree more, but they are still going to sell like hot cakes though. :P

I try to order off line sparingly, so it's retail for me.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: 6.5 Earthquake... Damn that was scary!!!

We didn't feel it at all here. In fact, the only evidence that there was a quake of any substinance was the fallen figures from my display. :P

To this point I got an imperial gunner for $20 w/o gun from a collectors shop and I think I got a decent deal on (all loose) a Yak Face, Imperial Dignatary, A-wing pilot, Imperial Gunner, pristine Y-wing, Falcon, Snow Speeder, Ewok Glider, Ewok catapult, Imperial Troop Trasport, 2 Endor Forest Ranger mini-rigs, desert skimmer and about 15 misc non POTF figures with accessories for $300.

I just scored my first one, loose, from ebay last year. It was in great shape and it cost under $20 shipped. I love it. Why can't they make modern toys like this?

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Target Figure with Cup Sets
« on: June 13, 2005, 11:24 AM »
Just to aid in the Off-Topic discusion, the #6 clone and the Clone cup set (as well as the extra clone that comes with the Khol's At-Rt,) are all the same and all come with the same accessories, blaster, rifel, and two shoulder pads, one with a logo, one without.

Thanks for posting that. I fasinated but the history of the making of and love the fact that he asked some of the best filmmakers to help out. Poses more what if questions.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Target Exclusive Clone Trooper
« on: June 12, 2005, 11:50 AM »

I agree, it's just that the phrase "in my little world" translates to "expanded universe."  It's not in the movie, so it's not canon.  Neyo's troops didn't have standard clone helmets in the movie, and therefore, the Target clone is expanded universe.

What if the Target clones were in a cut scene?

Both #2 Anakin and the #1 Obi Wan come with seperate hilts that can attack to their belts. So you got what everyone else got. ;)

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: ROTS 's PG-13 rating justified ?
« on: June 10, 2005, 08:57 PM »


It wasn't the lightsaber duels that caused me concern for my son -- it was seeing the dead Jedi younglings strewn about, and more so, the crispy Anakin scenes.  I think PG-13 was appropriate.




Precisely. I also think I would have a hard time explaining why this happened to Anakin to my five year old. Dooku, the bad guy is one thing. Anakin, the central character to the story, and the graphic imagery is another.
