In other words, no way will future releases be in scale to the Falcon as they would be too small, relatively speaking. :(

The website says no.  They updated what JediMac said regarding the availability date and with that update is an indicatation saying they don't charge until they are shipping.  Cool stuff and I may have to make an order.  I just wish I knew when so I could predict when the charge would be made.  I've got so much stuff on preorder, that if it all comes at the same time, my card could max out :o

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?

Reports I read from the Hasbro event stated that articulation on these Clone Troopers was pretty minimal.  It was a cost-cutting measure, since these are supposed to retail for $9.99 each.

That would make sense.  Not such a bad thing for army builders.  But they would then have to make the other necessary versions - standing at attention, marching, etc.  I wonder which is cheaper for them in the end?

Well, the Coleman figure is supposed to a depiction of him on Geonosis.  And image-wise, there's not much for Hasbro to pick from regarding this Jedi.  

There are only a handful of images, and in all of the Geonosis battle scenes, he's not weatring a cloak.  Most importantly, he's not wearing it when he gets shot by Jango Fett.  And most would argue that's Coleman's high point in the movie.

And again, I ask, where then are the blast marks ;)

Nice work Cory.  Still missing that trilogo pilot eh?  Well, maybe we'll find you one.  By Christmas, at this rate ::)

Walmart's up here start restocking for Winter/Christmas some time late July-early August, so maybe then.  It's so sad.

Well, Evok is much more closely allied with what they are - evil.  So, was that really expensive or not? :P

Just another reminder of why I stay away from Vintage.  The price, of course, but "mintest" piece?! :o  Gah, the English teacher in me rolled over and died. ;)

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Luke and Darth: A New Hope...What are they?
« on: May 24, 2003, 11:16 PM »
They are in Wave 15 I believe.  I have that on order from Newforce and they are blessedly packed two each in the case with 2 snowtroopers and six other single figures.  A great, great case. ;D

I really like the looks of that Luke figure and generally speaking, I don't like Luke very much. ;)

A bootleg, one would presume.

Just cruising around Amok Toys contemplating the Cantina sets and I stumbled across this image:

or if the image doesn't work clicky me

Here is the Luke, similar to the images seen previously from the toys shows, as mentioned above:

again, just in case clicky 2

Nice stuff.  I really like the Luke, though not sure how to get a Vader into the appropriate position (perhaps the one above works for what I have in mind).  Always welcome a RH Vader.  I have a loose and carded from POTF2, but the more, the merrier ;D

It's hot, it's snowing.  Make up your bloody mind mate ;)

No wonder the bars never close.  You have weather so schizophrenic it drives you to drink.   ;D

Sure, Padme has a green thumb because she's about to become domesticized.  Every good housewife has a green thumb.

<-------ducking and running away

I like the new cards, still hate the big bubbles though.  I guess as long as more accessories keep coming, it'll be cool.  

Where are the blast marks on Coleman ;D  Just add cold water ;)

Heh, that was my first thought when you posted that detail Scott:  why does he care, he'll never be out that late?  Ah, the joys of parenthood.  Notably responsible parenthood.  Oh well, more fun being kicked in the crackers by a rampaging 3 year old when you're not hungover. ;)

Other Toy Lines / Re: McFarlane Sportspicks

Items I'll never own but would like to -  click here

Sigh, not sure if McFarlane is smart or dumb.  I just hope he doesn't put out an uber cool hockey goalie exclusive that I can't get.  

The San Diego stuff is most interesting as it is comic related, but just to have some of those sports exclusives to own and open would be cool.  Then post loose pics over at McFarlane ;D

Will they do them to scale with the Falcon?  If so, that would have to reduce the price significantly just on size.  Perhaps not for the AT-AT but for the Tie and X-wing.  And for that reason, I can't see them making them any smaller.  Pity, I like scale.
