Star Wars Insider
« on: March 21, 2005, 10:13 AM »
For those of you that are subscribed, have you received the latest (Obi-Wan on the cover) issue yet?  I saw via the Official Site that it shipped to subscribers on March 11, but it hasn't shown up here yet.  It might still be coming (hits newsstands next Monday I guess), but I was just curious if mine was just late, or perhaps got skipped, or if anyone else had even received theirs yet.

Well, nevermind, I received mine today in the mail :).  Nice to see that purdy poster of all of the ROTS figures up close and personal, I sure wouldn't mind creating a display similar to that, if I had the necessary "skills" :).

I got mine Saturday Mosnab.  They took FOREVER with this issue.  I got my last one before anyone on the net had even reported them shipping at any site I visit, and this time I'm one of the last...  It's weird.

Is that poster of the figures a foldout from the magazine, or is it an entirely separate poster?

Yeah, I guess that's why I got curious as well Jesse.  Last time I got it before it was reported online as well, and this time it seemed to be running behind a bit.  Oh well, at least it got here :).

Unfortunately, its kind of a combination of the two, with the beginning of the poster (left hand side) being the last page of the magazine, and the rest of it folding out with the back cover.  I kind of wished it would have been a seperate poster, or at least all part of the cover so it could be taken out like a poster.  Either way, it is nice to see it closer in person, they sure make all the figures look purdy in that display. :)

Those cheapo's need to put the Insider back in the baggy. Typical - make it more expensive and give us less for it. Just like cable TV.

I got mine yesterday afternoon... I'll get to reading it this evening after class. I'm looking forward to that Clone story.

The clone story was good Brad, but a tad too Earthy too...  Just my opinion.  I digs them Clone Commando guys though.

They need to get more exclusive images I think going...  That'd be their big draw.  And crackdown on people putting scans up.  It's their best hope to make the rag appeal to a broader group.

I liked this issue though, but you're right that the cheapening of the bags sucks.  :(  Mine had dinged up corners and stuff.  I hate that.

Just thought I would bump this thread, and let everyone know that Issue #84 starts shipping this week, featuring 3 different covers.

 





I'm gonna have to find the other two covers at the newstand, because I'm really digging these.

Agreed - those are great looking covers!  They'd look great bagged and hanging on the wall.   8)

I got cover #2.  The clonetrooper artical was pretty good since I was having a hard time trying to remember who was who.  This was one of the quicker reads for me this time, not as thick as more recent versions and not as interesting outside the clone article.
