Saga Collection '06 / Re: Bonus Mini Hologram Figures
« on: October 28, 2005, 07:24 PM »

I agree it's a bit on the slow side of Hasbro...  This is me thinking for the well-being of completist carded guys...  I don't personally care about the random packing of these but I do feel for you who DO care. 

I will say that I like the idea of mini-holo figures.  I've supported that idea since, about 5 years ago a buddy of mine cast a mini Vader for me and other customizing buds and the figure is a must-have for with Veers.  Other mini-holo's are cool then in my book and could be useful to openers like myself.

How hard would it have been to just pack specific holos with specific figures though, and simply not doing a holo for some figures and repacking one of the other "main character" holos for with those odd background guys.  IE: pack Fett with a mini fett, but pack Barada with a mini fett as well, and pack Veers with a mini Vader, and Vader w/ mini Vader...  You get the idea.

Though, a mini holo Veers and Derlin wouldn't be bad IMO since I'd dig an Imp Officer mini holo for dioramas, and a Hoth Rebel mini holo like he's "reporting in" to the command center or some stuff.  Yeah I'm thinking too much.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Wanna waste 30 bucks?

Eh, when you get into "early release" stuff I think there's leeway with pricing.  Whatever...  I couldn't possibly justify it myself but to each their own.  Patience is my friend and since getting stuff early was never an option it doesn't bother me to wait...  I just wanna have it at some point at the price I think it's "worth". 

But if you got $30 and want stuff early, more power to ya!  To me, $30's better spent on 6 army builders at WM or a couple military figures and a halftrack I've been eyeballing at the store. :)

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: ROTS DVD Review
« on: October 28, 2005, 07:14 PM »
Cool review Dave and makes me look forward to the DVD more...  I saw some people at another site gloating how they already had their bootlegs and were happy but I just can't see how the bootleg "satisfies" these people.  I dunno.  LFL does good with the extras generallly...  Granted I'd have appreciated a couple more deleted scenes or some such, but I guess it's fodder for later releases or other ****.

Cool man, great work!

Best costume, hands down.  That guy would've been a highlight of C3 if he'd been in that out there.

Pens finally won one, but goaltending wasn't good still.  Atlanta's was just worse.  It's been a disappointing season in PIttsburgh so far but hopefully the win helps turn some things around.  Without solid goaltending we're in for many ass whippings though so I'd be looking to deal someone for a goalie asap.

And the galaxy judges the Neimodians as stunted cowardly slime!?  No way, they're selfless warriors throwing themselves in the line of laser scanner fire for other guy's benefit.

I salute you Neimodians.

I'm not a Trekkie but I figured he was gay for whatever reason and never really considered why, just thought he was.

There was this bit on Stern one morning where they prank called him pretending to be Ricardo Monteban (sp), and it was an instant classic. 

Good for Mr. Sulu...  Finally got past that Starfleet "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy.  Now I just hope he doesn't get the demotion he always fought against on the set of the ST films! :)  one of the greatest stories of delusion in history.

That was our lame attempt to corral it.   :-\

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Battle of Yavin Wave

Could my signature be used for much longer?  We shall see....  We shall see...

Sounds like a WHOLE lotta new **** in that wave but no repacks.  Odd, isn't it?

$65 for a saber?  Now that's a sweet price Cosby...  I gotta make more friends I guess.

I'm hoping to find a Vader saber for less than retail...  Cheap of me, but this kinda pricey stuff kills me to collect.  These are the kinds of things that people oogle when you show off the collection though so I really like the FX sabers as something "special"...  A wall of opened actionf igures just says I'm the loser I am, but the FX sabers say I'm a loser that can buy and sell people!  (Well, I at least can try to make it look that way anyhow)

That's a new one to me Jim, and actually anything out on display in the store that is obviously for sale should be able to be sold to you.  There are overrides and such, and they should've gotten a management member (The main guy ain't there all the time but there are managers for all shifts at any given store so they should've gotten someone).

I think they jerked you around basically and that sucks ass man.

There's no excuse for the treatment and they owe you in my opinion.  My suggestion is raise hell with their district manger.  It's always worked for me to make my complaint known to every level I can get ahold of.  The district #'s usually posted at customer service or Lay-Away...  I forget.

Anyway, that does suck man.  I DID run into figures not being in the system tonight.  I got a couple of the final figures (R4 and Wookiee) and they weren't in the system so the kid rang a Blue Senate Guard I bought through 3 times.  Not clearing out their inventory tracking system but that's sorta-kinda not skin off my ass...  It is because it means an R4 and Wookiee are still in their system that shouldn't be but whatever.

That's true, ugh...  I forgot the gloves.  Nuts. 

I'd likely still be happy enough just to get an army builder that great, but that does through a monkey wrench into things.   :-\

Good thread to bump... 

Where the hell's John anyway?  It's his thread.

You can, at times (we like it if it isn't rampant) drop the F Bomb here too Victor...  :)  But the thought was nice, so kudos for respecting the forums even if it wasn't warranted.
