Now THIS is what I'm talking about. :os<caron> :)

Awsome! Yeah, I could go for these!

Hey Hasbro! / Re: Could you possibly make a good Mace Windu?

I never understood the idea that figures have to slash or kick or jump.

It's called play value. ;)

Actually I have to agree that after sevral Maces, we still need a semi-definitive one.

He needs someone to tell him the truth. "George your dialogue sucks, my 6 year old could do better, seek help!"

He did, his name was Gary Kurtz. Lucas fired him for it.

Who ever has the new figures between Target, Walmart and TRU.

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

Out of all the sets, the only figure I'm remotely interested in is that Obi-Wan, and I don't even think they did a good job with it. :P

Revenge of the Sith / Re: I don't like action features!
« on: July 7, 2005, 12:07 PM »
I don't like buttons either, but the action features this time around worked very well and I actually like them.

Not bad. After shipping it's only a few more bucks than retail with tax. You could brobably get better deals if you hussled, but that isn't bad IMHO.

This does not make sounds though.

Wow, Great video! Thanks for posting the link!

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: If You Lost Your Collection....
« on: July 6, 2005, 10:56 AM »
I nearly lost my vintage collection to a fire once. Some ships and my DeathStar got smoke damaged and a little warped and few odds and ends seemed to have vaporized. but 99% of it was okay.

If I actually lost my entire collection in the near future, I would hang it up for now. However, I would make it a goal to re-aquire it down the road if I get ahead financially.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Lucas and the Prequels

he shouldn't blame Jar Jar on filler, that was just stupid. Just take the moronic way of speaking away from Jar Jar and the Gungans in general.  Think about it, just how much better it would have been!

Not much better. Dialogue is one thing, character development is another and that's Jar Jar's major flaw, the character goes nowhere. What would have helped Jar Jar is if he would have done something proactive in the final battle. In stead of bumbling around, he could have done something intentional to take out some droids showing that he actually learned something durring his time with the Jedi.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Movies Should be able to stand alone!

Not needed, because from Lucas' point of view he had always been coughing.

And the opening scroll was probably written long before the cartoon.

It was. He suggested to the CW creators that season two should be based on the opening scroll.

Revenge of the Sith / Figure Fun Facts!
« on: July 5, 2005, 02:57 PM »
This might be lame, but then again...

The "500" Vader figure got me to pondering all kinds of crazy things and though it might be fun if everyone shared all kinds of pointless trivia about the figures. For example, the 500 Vader is the 26th 3 3/4" Vader sclupt/paint varient:

Double Telescoping
Regular Vintage
SOTE 2-pack
Final Duel
Board game
FF removable Helmet
Complete Galaxy
Gunner station
Comm Tech
25th Anniversary/C3
Emperor's throne room
Toy Fair
Imperial forces
Throne room duel
TRU silver
500 Vader

Not including packaging variations.

What have you got? Mix it up a little.

Episode 1 / Wave 2 accessory sets
« on: July 5, 2005, 12:55 PM »
Did you get 'em? These were arguably the most dificult E1 items to track down and the least talked about. I myself have one complete loose set and half of a carded set. How did you guys fare and what were your thoughts on these? Where did you even find them? My first set came from a Latino Department store. The carded peices I just scored on e-bay.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: More articulation!
« on: July 5, 2005, 12:37 PM »

A rubber band waist section like GI Joe has, is KING!

It is perfection!!!

Not really. Hasbro has made all of the elements to replicate the Gi-joe waist without usuing the rubber band, they just have yet to put them all on one figure. The SA clones and the VOTC stomie has a specially articulated torso and the Clone Gunner has the ball jointed hips. I think if one would swap out the legs of a SA clone with that of the Gunners, you would have the most articulated SW figure possible.

I look at it this way, we got the first 50 plus army builders for about $5. Paying and extra buck for the remaining 6 isn't as bad as it could have been.
