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

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

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

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.

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. ;)

I found a lonely Han with cup yesteday at Target. Quiet weekend.

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.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Happy for the "Slow Down"?
« on: June 10, 2005, 08:34 PM »
I'm happy as well, but I'm not sure how much of one we'll get. Those colored clone 3-packs seem like they're going to be a pain to track down i.e. time and gas money, and some of the other stuff coming out soon is a bit pricey i.e the evolution sets. I'd like a more definate lull like the month before 4/2. :P

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.

Congrats John C! And welcome to the club of fatherhood.  :D

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.
