Hasbro updates today with a look at the full set of Mpire figures.

Not much new info, but more pictures to look at...

Zombies on Alias? Damn... I've got the last like 10 episodes of Alias in my tivo... I really need to sit down this weekend and have a little Alias marathon to catch up.

Not to take this off-topic, but yeah - the zombies/infected on Alias were pretty cool.  It was a great episode, I love the Rimbaldi stuff!

Alias actually had me more pissed w/ its cliffhanger then Lost did.

No kidding!   Now THAT was a cliffhanger... "My name's not Micheal Vaughn..."  *CRASH*

On the subject of lost, I thought it was a GREAT episode.  I didn't really want too many questions answered because I want to be able to enjoy this show next year too.

I think they are doing a great job of giving you a little and then taking something back or adding something new.   :)

I will admit of course, that I wanted more out of the episode, but isn't it a classic show-biz line to "always leave them wanting more"?

Personally, I think it would be hilarious for Lucas to constantly say he has no plans to do 7-8-9 and then turn around and do an episode -2, -1, 0 prequel-prequel Trilogy that focuses on Palpatine and how he got his Sith powers. 

Episode 0 could give us the long-awaited birth of Maul!    ::)

Plus with a prequel-prequel trilogy, Lucas can start saying stuff like, "oh no - this whole saga wasn't about Vader/Anakin, it was always meant to be about Palpatine..." and "what I meant by last SW movie was that Vader's SW Story would be over".   :P

Um... I'm gonna vote No to proposition "Make a prequel-prequel movie" - bad idea, George.   ;)

A Jedi v. Sith movie set 88 years before TPM flies in the face of the "The Sith have been extinct for a millenia" line from episode 1.  The whole thing would end up being lame...

Pilots seem to have this short window of popularity.  The OTC TIE Pilot (and his Saga incarnation) both were the same way.  THey came out, moved, then sat but dwindled slowly/steadily.

Yeah, I think you are right, Jesse.  As long as there is something for them to fly (ARC-170, Gunship), they will dwindle over time like the TIE Pilots did.  I think the Army Builders are ignoring this guy in favor of spending their $$$ on #41 Clones or other figures, but over time I think they will sell.

Here's the current state of my "Armies" -

1x Preview Wookiee Warrior
1x III-4   Super Battle Droid
4x III-6   Clone Trooper
1x III-8   Grevious's Bodyguard
1x III-17   Battle Droid
2x III-23   Royal Guard (Blue)
2x III-23   Royal Guard (Red)
2x III-33   Clone Commander
3x III-34   Clone Pilot
2x III-38   AT-TE Gunner
2x III-41   Clone Trooper
1x III-42   Neimoidian Warrior
1x III-43   Wookiee Warrior (Tan)
1x III-43   Wookiee Warrior (Brown)
1x III-44   Destroyer Droid
2x Target   Clone Trooper

I use the term "armies" loosely, because I am really trying to behave myself this time and not end up with dozens of troopers...  I just can't afford to keep up the way I used to army-build. :-\

Got it:


I see he has this in there:

(Product Ratio not final)

Which means it's pretty much just a guess on his part...


You kids leave Matt's avatar alone!  >:(

Watto's Junk Yard / The Will Ferrell Appreciation Society

So, before the RotS hype, I made it out to the theaters to see "Kicking and Screaming".

Plenty of funny to go around.  Granted, it wasn't a comedic masterpeice, but it did offer up a few funny parts, such as the first trip to the Coffee shop and the Tetherball game between Duvall and Ferrell.

Anyone else see this one?

Anyone else looking forward to "Bewitched"?  Not sure how I feel about the premise of the movie, but it does sound funny at least with lots of opportunity for Ferrell to fall down a lot.


How do you determine who is and who is not a Star Wars collector?  :-\ 

I'm just wondering how often you've actually turned someone down because you somehow knew they weren't a collector.

I've turned down people in the aisles who have asked for 1-2 of my Army Builders because I knew they were NOT a "real" collector. 

I "somehow knew they weren't a collector", because I've been to the comic/hobby shop that they owned and seen where those figures would have ended up.   :P

Granted, it probably isn't cool to hoarde if someone else is right there and is interested in the figures, but when it's a person you KNOW is one of the local scalpers, I don't have a problem with stiffing them.  ;)


I finally broke down and picked up a few more of these via a trade.

My total is now 4 loose and 1 carded.   :)

OK, so maybe 4 isn't as cool as 40+ like some of you fellas, but it works for me.   ;)

Do we have any other pictures of these figures?:

These things keep coming one after the other. What will this assortment look like?  (With Ask Ack (?) I suppose).

#45-47 (tarkin, Mon Cal, Aak Aak) will be the next wave in collection 2.  You can find a bit more info in this Thread.

A few rumors have popped up that people have started finding them at Wal-Marts, but nothing concrete yet...

Right now, judging from the photos, it looks as if the "Okay" Anakin might be along the lines of the Deluxe Anakin in that the cloak/head/arms might all be one piece and fit over the "Scorched" Anakin body. 

Your description is definately the way it looked to me at C3.

You pop the arms (and maybe the head) off the "scorched" Anakin and the Cloak/Head/Arms peice snaps over the top for "Evil" Anakin (Darth Vader) on Mustafar.  That is why his lower legs are unscathed on the "Battle Damage" figure, so they look normal on the un-damaged Anakin.

If you look at this pic, you can see the Cloak/Head/Arms is 1 peice (hard to see, but it has no legs):

The other thought was they were in the scene were one of the Clones tells Cody there was no sign of Kenobi

This is where I saw them.  Two of them walk past the Clones as they talk.  The first time I saw the flick, I thought they were ERGs, but they were too tall. 

The second viewing is when I noticed they were Utupau Warriors.  Also, off to the far left of the screen at that part you can see a group of Utuapau Warriors huddled together.


Cough Cough

I guess maybe everyone has had enough figures from Episode 2...  :'(
