It was a really bright yellow and blue, not the tan uni.

Saw a really weird colored Sentry this morning.  It wasn't like either the regular or variant Sentry I have.  Strange.

Five now.  Scored two of those this morning.  The thing that I'm really liking about these is the ball jointed head.  I can pop the heads and swap the pauldrons from the Evolutions Sandtroopers with these Sandtroopers.  It makes the ranks look a little more diverse.

I'm still confused on something: Where exactly did Hasbro say that BPs next year would be four figures and an accessory rather than five figures with accessories?  I'm just wondering where this was definitively stated and, if not, how this was inferred.  With recent comments about the box size being the thing that dictates what gets packed in the box, I don't see how many of these larger accessories (some of which, mentioned in other threads like the Geonosian Sonic Cannon) could even fit when taken apart.

It was mentioned in the Rebelscum article that purportedly listed so much of the 2007 line.  So it's certainly not definitive until Hasbro has their say.

$405 and climbing.  And this one still hasn't met it's reserve.  ::)

Why didn't I get this when it first came out?!

I didn't even get offered that much.  My order wouldn't even go through.  Had to resort to ePAy to get my BHS. 

I'm glad to see that GG is TRYING to make good with people.  But in reality they should have known better than to offer an exclusive SW mini-bust in an edition size of 1,000 pieces.  I'm wondering now what kind of horror show the Mara Jade bust is going to be with an edition size of 2,000 pieces.   As for the Shock Trooper?  Hopefully GG can get the right computer assets in place for the pre-order system they're talking about.

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Rouge Squadron helmet pics?

I need a little pic help here if anyone can help. Im looking to find some reference pics for the helmet decos on various Rouge pilot helmets.

Nothing personal, but I see this A LOT on a number of message boards...

CAN WE ALL LEARN HOW TO SPELL THE WORD ROGUE, PLEASE?!?!?!  After all, they didn't have Rouge squadron flying an attack run while Mascara squadron was flying high cover.  ;D

He broke out the wah-wah pedal at the Garden.  It was amazing when they played "White Room" and "Tales of brave Ulysees".  But I agree, it was sorely missing from both the CD and DVD of the shows at the Royal Albert Hall.

Even if they added articulated elbows to that RFT, it still sucks by today's standards.  In 2001, I thought it rocked.  But now, this figure needs a resculpt so badly.


The RFT was a great improvement on it's previous version.  The POTF2 version was utter dreck.  When the POTJ version came out it was a great step in the right direction.  And I think I understand Hasbro's statements about it in the most recent Q&A.  Late next year or perhaps in '08 this would be a great trooper to revisit.  But in actuality, I think the Hoth Rebel Trooper needs revisiting much more than the RFT.

As for the lineup, I think the following is likely...
Darth Vader
Rebel Fleet Trooper
Captain Antilles

I saw Clapton last fall with Cream.  He is worth the money!  I can't believe just how good he was.  I had heard all this hype about him, and I'd listened to his stuff for years, yet I hadn't come across any recordings of him that really blew my mind.  That night he succeeded in doing just that.  The man is incredible live!

Let's see....

1 x Yoda - new sculpt, eyes closed, raising the X-Wing
1 x R2-D2 - TSC, dirty and gimmickless
1 x Luke Skywalker - Bespin Fatigues (SAGA, clean version)
1 x Spirit of Obi-Wan Kenobi (OTC)

I wonder if Agen Kolar is in this set, then which lightsaber will he have?  The ROTS figure has a green saber, but in that scene Kolar has a blue saber.  Kind of an academic notion though, since he's the first Jedi to get slaughtered in that scene.

I like the new sculpt.  Very much like the Rocket staring down a batter at the plate.  Also glad to see that they're finally doing him in pinstripes.  He never got a pinstriped figure while he was on the team.

Yeah, that Sandpoopers question is a bit odd.  I think that this year, more than any other, the product has been out there and ready to buy.

Well, consider the source of the question  ;D .  Hasbro has actually done a lot to get product out.  Between the presence at retail plus online stores INCLUDING Hasbro's own online store, this seems like something of a wasted question.

Yep, just got back from seeing Superman Returns, holy **** that was a great flick.  8)

Kevin Spacey is a great Lex, as with Frank Langella (Perry White) & Sam Huntington (Jimmy Olsen), fit the parts perfect.

Very nice to see a cameo of Jack Larson in this, he played Jimmy Olsen in the Adventures of Superman back in the 50's & mega buck man Sir Richard Branson.

So that was Richard Branson?!  I thought so.

Apparently Noelle Niel, who played Lois Lane in the television show was the rich old lady that Luthor swindled out of her fortune.

Another good nod to the past was the picture of Glenn Ford on the mantle at the Kent home.  He had one of the most extraordinary parts of the original movie.

I thought that this was a fantastic movie.  I can understand now why Bryan Singer left the X-Men franchise to pursue this.  I would definitely like to see a sequel, and I think the actors have been contracted to do so.  Perhaps they can incorporate a villain like Metallo or Brainiac.  I think that either one would be credible in the movie universe of Superman.
