The Original Trilogy / Re: Why have a 2nd Death Star in ROTJ?
« on: May 30, 2005, 05:43 PM »
As always, I will try to bring this down to the lowest possible common denominator, but I always think of it this way now, as John Hurt's Character in Contact said (and I'm paraphrasing:) Why build one when you can build two for twice the price?"

Power of the Force 2 / Re: What's the figure you hate the most?

Yeah, there were a lot of stinkers, and they really stick out now that were getting the great work we have now. Worst for me?

I have to go with the monkey faced Leia as well.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Greivous' Cough?
« on: May 30, 2005, 05:30 PM »
I believe there's a cut scene of Grievous executing Shaak Ti on the Invisible Hand.  This scene at a minimum should have been left in to at least show Grievous doing something other than lose a fight.  He's supposed to be this lethal jedi killer and all we did is see him run away from the first fight, then lose the second.  That doesn't look too ferocious from where I'm standing.  Hell, Lucas could have put me in, and I could have run like a girl from the first fight and lost a second.

 :D

Yeah, that would have made a huge difference.

I picked up two more clone gunners today to even our may army.

I saw a picture at R2toys of a clone 3 pack with one green clone and two white ones. How reputable is R2toys? Has anyone else heard of this?

Qui-Gon and Palpatine.

Maul was almost perfect as is. I think given the oppretunity to flesh out his character with subsequent film apearances could have ruined the character.

The Prequel Trilogy / The Prequels that could have been
« on: May 29, 2005, 11:09 AM »
I'm not sure how many of you are aware, but both Lawrance Kasdan and Frank Darabont were aproached to write all of the prequels based on Lucas's stories. Kasdan turned them down because we had moved on from Star Wars (this I heard from his own mouth) and Lucas couldn't reach an agreemant with Darabont due to union issues. This ulimately lead to Lucas's decision to give a thumbs down to Darabont's Indy 4 script which Spielberg approved.

One could only imagine what could have been. :P

Humor. Has anyone brought up humor?

I think that's what the PT is sorly lacking. The OT had many a great moments where humor was generated because of the inherant conflicts between our heroes, thus creating tons of memerable lines. I can't think of one fun moment like this in the entire PT.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Episode zero

I was thinking about what episode this would be called.

Star Wars Prologue

Interesting idea. I for one will entertain that train of thought.

I love details like that. I just wonder how intentional it is.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Jedi = Star Trek red shirts?
« on: May 29, 2005, 10:46 AM »
Guys, the whole point of the Prequels is that the Jedi were arrogant and when their attackers came after them they were caught off guard.

I've thought about this from that line in AOTC, however, I don't think the idea is fleshed out enough for my taste. It's a stretch, but one could make that connection. Personally, I would have like to have seen a little more time devoted to that idea if that was the case.

If Lucas says that's way the Jedi die, that's the way the Jedi die. 

True, but that doesn't make it the right choice artistically or consistancy wise. ;)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Curse you, Deluxe Wave One!!!

I noticed that after the Target sale, several of the stores mysteriously lost about half of their Sidious's and Obi-Wan's. I think some stashers for restocking have been working.

The white clones are shipping in wave 3 R1. Does anyone know what rotaion the colored clones are shipping in and if they've hit yet?

I picked up another set of wave three deluxe yesterday. And as a side not, I went to 5 targets yesterday and all of them had #41 clone sitting on the pegs and no one, including myself, was buying them.
