30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 2007 Saga Legends
« on: January 31, 2007, 06:19 PM »
DVDs to iTunes to that possible?  The reason I ask is I'd like to get Apple TV for my plasma downstairs b/c its small enough to put right behind the panel (can't find any DVD players that fit between the tv and the wall) and stream my DVDs from my laptop to the TV.  I didn't think you could import DVDs to iTunes though.  Unfortunately Apple TV only streams iTunes media...nothing else.  If you know of a "trick" let me know.

Sorry to be getting off subject everyone else :)

Dude I just watched the episode last night where Gob washed Franklin...hilarious :)  I never watched in the original run, so catching them in HiDef on HDNet.  Season 3 starts next Wed.

For the record, I'm a blue coat guy :)

What's up with Leia's knees/legs?  They look BAD.

Wave overall looks good, I'll get them all.

I think all the soft goods will look better in person/package than in picks.  It turned out that way with the previous Vintage Waves as well.

I remember the original Endor Leia had a pretty decent gun as well.  I just remember liking it as a kid b/c it was different and was very similar to the one in the movie.

Sorry, didn't want to read the whole thread.  I guess I have 2 questions.  Are there "only" going to be 30 of these?  And does anyone know what cards these are going to be on (current saga variation or new 30th anniversary variation).  thanks in advance.

I have to admit, I'm seriously considering ending my collecting b/c of WAY too many repacks AND too many figures a year.

Any new info on this figure yet?  Could just be an old pic, before they added the colored stripes to the figure.  Just curious if I have to start looking for it or not.  Thanks

Anyone seen these on preorder anywhere?  AndrewsToyz has the set of five for the ridiculous price of $90!!

Meant to post this ahile ago, but figure better late than never.  The GB C3PO actually has 3 variations. 

Lava Base
Grey Corridor (w/black) Base
Tannish Corridor (w/black) Base

Just FYI.  Saw all 3 at the same time in Walmart back in November.

Just curious if anyone knows if this vader is truly packaged like wave 1.  What I mean by that is does it have the peg holder and if unpackaged from the "album" could it just appear as another figure.  The reason I'm asking is that I hang all the figures on the wall with a push pin where the peg hangs.  If this figure cannot be hung that way, I have no reason to get it.  From the pictures it looks like the packaging is a little different (although in the same style), just not exactly the same.  Anyone have it yet to verify?  thanks in advance

So since 4-arm Grievous is in the line-up do you think they are taking out Shock Trooper?  Or are they making Wave 3 6 figures instead of 5??  I don't want them to keep making this "subset" bigger.

So does anyone know for sure if this wave is:

1) still coming out (after the combined Endor/Naboo wave)
2) getting pushed into next years wave on all new cards
3) getting cancelled alltogether

I'm voting for #1 (obviously).  I think it could still happen.  My Endor Wave of 5 figures is arriving on Monday.  That would leave only 1 more wave of Saga2 for the rest of the year.  That would also be 2 more waves of H/V, but I think wave 2 is due pretty much any day now.  So only 2 more figure waves in the next 4 months just sounds thin compared to the rest of the year.  I figure the Saga30 stuff will start showing up in December like normal.  Any ideas, thoughts, wait for ComiCon I guess?

From the pics posted you can see there are 14 figures being released because it says 1 of 14 etc.  So basically these are the 2nd and 3rd wave of Heroes and Villains, they just renamed them because of the whole 1 of 12 thing.  Just wanted to clarify for people that think these are different somehow.  So its the last 16 of the "Greatest Hits of Epi III".  Wave 2 will have 9 "new" figs and Wave 3 will have 5 "new" figs.  They have been listed at EE for some time now.

Just FYI Brians Toys has this up for pre-order on their website (under exclsuvie figures in the Saga2 section)  Its like 39.99 though.  Just wanted to let you guys know.

Collector's Tips / carded figures on the ceiling???
« on: May 22, 2006, 03:21 AM »
OK, I know this might sound a little crazy, but I'm running out of room.  I only collect the 4inch figures on cards.  I have them pushpinned to the walls of a room in rows of 10 from ceiling to floor.  My problem is that I only have room for about 80 more before all 4 walls are covered.  I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for affixes them to the ceiling without damaging the cards at all.  The only think i can think of is using star cases and then affixes them.  That would be pretty easy, but I hate to buy star cases.  I don't like them and don't have any of my other figures in them.  A pushpin works fine if hanging the figures normally, but on the ceiling I need some sort of support on the bottom of the card too.  Anyone tried this or accomplished it?  Thanks in advance.  I'm just trying to find an alternative to using a pushpin on all 4 sides of the figure.  It would be awesome to use velcro somehow.  You could fasten a velcro strip firmly to the ceiling and then a strip on the back of the card.  You guys know that clear goo that holds tags and stuff on boxes, but when you remove them the clear goo balls up and doesn't damage anything?  Can you buy that and apply it to card backs?

Thanks for the clone pilot info.

As for the other 2 waves...there are 9 new figs in wave 2 and 5 new figs in wave 3.  I'm guessing they'll be done after that b/c that will be 13 heroes and 13 villains.  Anyway, instead of ordering cases and ending up with doubles, I just preorder the wave (new figures only) from either KandC or Brians.   That way i don't have to worry about it either.

Just curious if the clone pilot is available in both colors or just the black one?  I got my case today and it had the black one.  Anybody seen the grey one or was that just a mistake of early artwork on websites?  Thanks
