Robo-Quack: Sorry to rain on your parade, but the clones are most likely not two-packs. I believe that Big Bad Toy Store shows all of the contents of the case, thus leading to two clones being pictured.

Now here's an ARC trooper:

Damn right! Only thing that stinks is that he comes with Obi-Wan. Hopefully that ARC will be packed on his own card in 2008 or 2009.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Your Favorite Jedi?
« on: January 13, 2007, 09:44 PM »
   Ever since I got the Phantom Menace Visual Dictionary back when I was seven years old, I've always liked Plo Koon. I thought he was awesome looking with his mask and weird skin. I liked him even more when Jedi Power Battles came out, and he was one of only several Power of the Jedi figures that I bought.
   When the Attack of the Clones toys came out, I was so excited to have Plo Koon be the fourth figure that I got from that line. I was psyched to see him in the movie wielding a lightsaber. (Alright, it was only for two seconds, but it was still cool)
   I was kind of disappointed to see Koon die in Revenge of the Sith. I would've loved to have seen him fight back, or maybe even survive Order 66. I think the Plo Koon had a very unique design for an alien, and I would love to see a novel or a comic with him as a main character. I've always felt that he hasn't gotten as much love as some of the other Jedi Council Members (i.e. Shaak Ti, Ki Adi Mundi, Saesee Tiin)

Also, Greg thank you for watching my back.   8)

No problem CHEWIE. I have no idea why some people feel the need to do things like that.  ::)

Yavin is used in Battle Front 1 and 2 in the form of stopping escaping Rebel ships and an infantry attack on the ground. It also appears in Galactic Battlegrounds, where you must fight your way to General Jan Dodonna on the ground after the destruction of the Death Star.

Yeah, in Battlefront 2, and the CIS face the Clone Army in Jabba's palace - but that doesn't mean anything.  ;)

The difference between Mon Cal and Yavin are huge. Mon Cal was a formidable shipyard from the days of the Clone Wars, and into the Civil War, while Yavin was a secret base. What I'd like to see is some EU elaboration on why the Empire wasn't striking the shipyard of the Mon Cal as a priority. Were they tied down politically with the civil war between the Calamari and the Squidheads? I'd also like to see a definitive answer on what happened with Yavin directly after the Death Star was destroyed and the Rebels held their ceremony in the temple...

Great discussion, by the way.

Hey, Yavin Four was in story mode... story mode!!! :-[

   Anyway, regarding Mon Calamari, perhaps they had underwater weapons that the Empire wasn't capable of defeating? The Republic stormed an underwater city very quickly in the Clone Wars cartoons, but maybe the Mon Calamari or Quarren built bigger and better defenses underwater that would've left the Empire helpless had they chose to invade.

Angry Ewok- Regarding the technology issue, if the Empire's technology wasn't superior, would they be building things like Super Star Destroyers, gigantic, Super Lasers capable of destroying large starships and even planets , and Interdictor Cruisers equipped with gravity well generators?
   I could say that Mon Calamari Starships were not ideas of Rebel Scientists (as they were built by the Mon Cal, even some Mon Cal ships were being used in the Clone Wars), but not all Imperial ideas were those of the Empire. (Some scientists were forced against their will to design and build things for the Empire)
   Now, on the topic of shields and hyperdrives in ships, the Empire used them in some small ships, but like you said, not in fighters. The Empire deployed their TIEs in swarms to overwhelm enemies and use speed and pilot training to defeat enemies. Since no shields were on Imperial fighters, this was most likely due to the cost of added shield generators versus the cost of new pilots and fighters. The shields were probably more expensive. Different strategy and budget issues on the Empire's part, most likely.
   Now, if you are referring to just the movies in your argument, then you win hands down. EU opens up a whole new ball game, especially if you incorporate video games.

Jesse James- Yavin is used in Battle Front 1 and 2 in the form of stopping escaping Rebel ships and an infantry attack on the ground. It also appears in Galactic Battlegrounds, where you must fight your way to General Jan Dodonna on the ground after the destruction of the Death Star. 

Saga Collection '06 / Re: TSC Recent Acquisitions
« on: January 8, 2007, 06:06 PM »
George Lucas Stormtrooper and Republic Commando Set came in the mail today. My armies grow ever stronger.

The idea of sieges coming up in Clone Wars makes me think the Empire can't just waltz in and squash ANY world they want.  EU really helps flesh that notion out too a bit.

   Well, in the Clone Wars you had two armies that were around the same size, strength, and technology level facing off against each other.(I think that it's due to Sidious wanting to keep the war going and the factions strength close to equal) The Separatists, especially during the Outer Rim Sieges, were digging in and fortifying their planets with the intent of withstanding Republic attacks. Therefore, Republic strikes turned into sieges spanning several months, like the battle of Saleucami.

   When the Empire was in control and fighting the Rebels, they had superior technology and armed forces. To capture most planets, all they really needed to do was march a few AT-ATs in to destroy ground defenses, and send in Storm Troopers and other units to capture the major cities/towns. Even though the Empire may have had a hard time taking Kashyyk and Mon Calamari, they decimated Rebel bases on Yavin 4 (after the Death Star blew up) and Hoth (Okay, so the Rebels weren't really ready for that one.) If the Empire tried, I believe that they could take over any planet they wanted, either with fear, superior numbers, firepower, and/or technology on their side. Holding a planet, like Kashyyk, is a different story.
