Saga Collection '06 / Re: Battle of Hoth Wave
« on: November 6, 2005, 04:54 AM »
I'll bite on a VOTC Han Trenchcoat though if it's all it should be for that price.  :)  I'll be giddy at that one.

The line is kinda "meh" right now though.  It's weird...  I like this stuff, I'm excited about collecting, but I wasn't really "down" on ROTS yet either...  I'm glad to get OT stuff, but I'm anxious for some oddball things or an army builder that simply bowls me over.  The AT AT Driver is cool but not one I wanted particularly...  Had that been a Snowtrooper I'd have probably gone nuts when I saw the pics.  Had it been a SA Rebel Trooper, I'd have probably wet myself.

Or SA Han Hoth, or SA Hoth Luke or SA Snowspeeder anyone...  You get the picture.

Instead it's an AT-AT Driver who I have some POTF2 figs I was happy enough with.  Not to say I dislike him, he's cool, but just wasn't high on my list.  Veers was though so he's cool to me.  That's the kinda stuff I'm really looking forward to.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS Pegwarmers?
« on: November 6, 2005, 04:50 AM »
It's funny how regions differ...

While I see an Obi Pilot or RT Driver here and there, I don't see many of them anywhere, and many stores have absolutely none... 

Also, the Clone Pilot is all but gone at this point.  I think the severe lack of anything Clone pushed this guy some for a while too but around here I can't think of seeing even one recently on my hunts.  Or I just didn't notice...

Also, Polis Massaan and Med Droid NEVER pegwarmed here which is funny.  Actually the Med Droid was somewhat uncommon even.  It took me a long long time to finally track one down, and while I saw it sporatically afterwards, I haven't seen it on the pegs for probably 2 months now at least.

The bigger pegwarmers were Bail Organa, Mothma, Chancellor Palpatine, Emperor Palpatine, Neimoidian, and more recently Vader...  Then there's always lingering Jedi too at any given location, but nothing major like the Neimoidian...  Just a few of Luminara or Shaak Ti, or perhaps a couple Plo Koons and Sae Sae Tinn figures...  Kolar I'm noticing more lately whereas a month ago he was non-existant.

Padme was REAL common at one point around here but she's all gone now... 

Current figures backing up bigtime are the Mustafar Duel Obi-Wan and Vader though...  Oh and Spinning Yoda has always been a HUGE pegwarmer around here that I seemingly always forget to mention.  The other Yoda with the Wookiee gun was real tough to find though, and rightfully so.

All Collection 1 reshipping are backing up around here though, and the literally 5 pegs full of Vader at many Wal-Mart stores isn't helping that situation at all.

These are hitting out here as well...  Stock from other stores being redistributed?  Stock from WM.com being sent to stores for a hoped for impulse buy?  I dunno...

This set sucks balls though at $30 no matter how you slice it...  The Chewie is pretty sweet though.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Target Exclusive Utapau Shadow Trooper
« on: November 6, 2005, 04:41 AM »
Still didn't get this myself.  Buddy may have one but I'm really sorta getting fidgety on this.  The area Target's with them in have generally sold out.

Terrible story from one local was that he got his couple and immediately some guys looking at Hotwheels hogged in and took the rest, plus were haggling the stockpeople to bring out the rest for them.  ****...

I was wanting to get 4...  I'm thinking at this point I'd be content with 2 and leave it at that partly due to price and partly due to these already having "scalper" written all over them.  I wish they'd flow out onto the floor in droves like the Lava figures.  That'd really stick it to the opportunists I think considering that at that price and that quantity, these would almost have to be shelfwarmers I'd think.

Added one today...  I gotta do a recount on these, but my buddy sold me an extra he had at our local get-together so I've managed to get a replacement in for one the platoon's casualties.  Love this figure...  hate the price.

Welcome aboard Richard...  Feel free to peruse all over this site though.  You may find the conversation a bit more to your liking than maybe what's offered elsewhere. 

Have a good time, and take solice in the fact that JediMAC and other staff here keep close tabs on the finds area for just the reasons you came over here.  Vigilant the JD staff is, yeeeessss. 

BTW nice theory about Shmi/Palpy.  I'm really curious if, and how that will ever get explained.  The thing about ROTS that I sorta liked and sorta hated was that it didn't wrap up everything nice and neatly.  It actually only opened up more questions which is sorta funny.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Battle of Hoth Wave
« on: November 6, 2005, 02:42 AM »
I saw (not you Anton, others) that some were surprised at Veers having the removable armor and I was sorta surprised at their surprise...  The armor was pretty plainly obvious that it came off by looking at it.  Not that it looks bad, it just clearly is separately molded pieces.  I didn't realize there were many out there who didn't catch that.

I agree with OTFreak about the hat...  Seems odd if he doesn't have it, and I have to say it's a disappointment if it's the case.  I was really REALLY looking forward to having a hat I could perhaps use for customizing but whatever...

In the end I'll be content with Veers I think...  The whole Saga series is looking cool but I'm more concerned with articulation taking a step backwards after so much advancment in this area by Hasbro...  Ball/socket knees missing on Han (Veers I'm alittle more lenient on) is just a disappointment...  Same goes for Derlin since I consider him an army builder.  Veers I'm so-so on.  He could use them too and I'd be the first to want them but somehow I just don't care as much about him.  Maybe it's all the gear he comes with, I dunno.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Jarhead
« on: November 5, 2005, 01:32 AM »
I'd like tos ee it but it's one of those movies I'm thinking I can't get the gf to go see...

The shot of the A-10's buzzing over the infantry is just great though and really makes you wanna check that out.  Looked nice...  The music though is great too, at least in the commercials, and seems to fit the bill.  Sorta reminded me something of a modern version of Full Metal Jacket or some such, maybe a little more light-hearted at times, i dunno.

Looks good though to me. 

It reminded me of Full Metal Jacket a lot too.

I'm suprised, with Jake Gyllenhaal and Jamie Foxx in it, that your gf wouldn't want to see it.

She knows she has all the beefcake she needs at home with me...  Oh yeah... 

*sigh*   :'(

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Carded Wedge, finally!
« on: November 5, 2005, 01:22 AM »
To Hasbro's defense on the helmet, the helmets are often made to fit the head more than heads made to fit the helmets, which is odd but it is how they seem to be done.  Dutch's helmet may have been an awkward fit on Wedge's noggin.  The problem could be minor, it could fit perfectly (I don't have my figs handy to check), or it could be major and not fit at all.  I've noticed that Dutch's helmet doesn't fit a whole lot of my "fodder" heads from other lines too well...  Some the strap is too loose on them and on others the helmet just won't fit on the head.  It's weird.

After some trips out I've noticed a lot of Collection 1 starting to sit, which is maybe just a short-term lull or perhaps the kids have finally figured out that new video games are out there they want...

Lots of stuff I haven't seen for a while is out there though, like Anakin figures, Chewbacca, etc...  Not much I'm wanting, but still lots of stuff.

The line's going to be a bitch to find if all that's coming in right now is old stuff though.  I did notice that Clones have gone from handfuls here and there to almost none... 

Vader's king pegwarmer right now I think.  Almost every WM has an army of him from the solid cases...  Neimoidian is a pegwarmer, but Vader's really outpacing him right now.

Modern Trading / POTJ Fleet Troopers For Trade
« on: November 4, 2005, 05:36 AM »
I have 3 of the POTJ Rebel Fleet Trooper hanging around here that I'd like to trade away for some of what I'm in search of.

I'd trade them for any of the following:

-Shocktroopers (Red #6 Clone repaint)
-Any figure from the Clone Evolutions set (especially Sandtrooper)
-Tactical Ops Trooper
-Holographic Plo Koon
-Holographic Ayla Secura
-Clone Wars SA Clonetrooper
-Entertainment Earth 4-pack Clonetrooper (any variant)
-POTJ or Saga "Imperial Officer"
-Amidala w/Ascension Gun
-VOTC Stormtrooper (would trade 2 RFT's for one VOTC Stormie)

This is about all I'm really in search of heavily at the moment...  If there's no offers I'd consider selling the Fleet Troopers as well but I'd rather trade for something I need with these.  Pleas help these guys (they still suck) find a home. :)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: When will the ROTS clearances start?
« on: November 4, 2005, 05:25 AM »
I hope they clearance stuff like that.  We have RT's I'd like to stock up on and the last of the Wookiee Flyers would go with me too for a downed one with some dead Wookiees strewn about it.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Saga after retail - eBay prices
« on: November 4, 2005, 05:25 AM »
Nowhere NEAR hard to find.  Clearanced at KB in droves.  I bought one simply for the metal hilt to give to my (hoped for at the time) ultimate Maul figure...  Now that I have that figure pretty much with the Evolutions one, youc an guess what he's getting in his stocking for X-Mas! :)

Yes little maully, your own special little metal lightsaber.  Awwwwwww, yeah I love you too buddy....

God it's late and I'm getting weird.  Goodnight.
