Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: EE exclusive Clone Trooper 4-packs!
« on: April 29, 2005, 10:19 AM »
Despite thinking I would only keep the "battle damaged" versions and sell the others, I opened up all 4 of my boxes last night.


I am a damn sucker for these SA Clones.  Of course, my Arena Display now looks even better with 16 more SA clones spilling out of my gunships to save the Jedi's behinds, but I just wish it would have been a little cheaper.  Oh well, too late now.  I guess $25 for a box of 4 SA clones isn't too bad - $6.25 each.

And, like others have said, I do like the colors of these clones.  I think they are a bit nicer than the colored pre-posed clones we got in the 3-packs.

I'm about 1% tempted, 99% want to stay married :P

This is the same boat I'm in...  :P

I'd love to have this Fett, but at the cost of 1/3 of the year's SW budget?  I'm gonna have to pass.   :'(

Maybe I'll pick it up in 2015 or so...

I'd love to see a bunch more of these, like Padme, C-3PO, Leia, Luke, Obi-Wan, etc.  Did anything more come up on them in the Q&A, or is this all we're getting?

According to Hasbro, they only have these 3 sets planned so far, but at the C3 QnA they indicated that sales of this line will determine whether or not they go back and do more. 

When we were talking to the Hasbro guys later, they said they had quite a few figures on the list already that they'd like to do if they get the chance to make more - Padme, Obi-Wan, 3PO.  Almost made it seem like if there is a next wave, it'd likely be those three.


So do you guys still flip through all the figures on all the pegs?  Anyone else gotten sick of doing it like I have?

Yes, every store I go to, I try to flip all the pegs.  Usually I'm just checking the numbers on the corner looking for the figures I need, but I do usually go through EVERY peg they have.   :-[

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Clone #6 vs Clone #41
« on: April 29, 2005, 10:03 AM »
Just wanted to mention that the #41 SA Clone does NOT have the same body as the Clone Wars SA Clone Trooper.  They may share the same legs, but that is it.  The #41 Clone has a brand-new Torso, Belt, neck ball, and at least 1 arm is new. 

Like Scott said, #41 Clone is much closer to #6 Clone in terms of Sculpt than to the Clone Wars SA Clone.  And, the #41 Clone almost seems "taller" than the other Ep3 clones do.  I think the ball-joint on #41's waist makes him slightly taller than the other Ep3 Clones because they just have the 1-peice torso.

However, the Target Clone Trooper is the Clone Wars SA body with an Ep3 Head.  When you compare the Target Clone Trooper to the CW version, they are almost a perfect match.  Same torso, arms, belt, etc. The only difference I can see if the head sculpt.

While playing around with my Clones last night, I have to admit that the Target one (based on the Clone Wars SA version) is much more "fun" than the #41 version.  He has no goofy antenna sticking out of his back, his joints are a bit tighter, and his belt is much less "big" - if you look at Scott's picture you will see what I mean, #41 has a big belt!

I rank them like this:

#33 Clone Commander - wow!
Target Clone - great neutral sculpt
#06 Clone Trooper - non-intrusive action feature = OK with me
#38 AT-TE Gunner - his elbow joints are the only thing I don't like
#41 Clone Trooper - his antenna really bugs me for some reason
#34 Clone Pilot - somebody had to be last...

Just my $0.02 on the Clones...

Thanks to Bob Dylan SW Fan, I found the Super Art Clone, Wookiee and Neimoidian at TRU tonight (along with all of the figures 32-40 which I left except for an extra AT-TE and the Chopper Droid which I hadn't bought yet, and Red Saber Palpatine).


I hit TRU today and picked up:

2x #38 AT-TE Gunner
1x #41 SA Clone Trooper (last one :(  but at least I got 1)
2x #42 Nemoidian Warrior
2x #43 Wookiee Warrior
2x #44 Droideka

You and your family will stay in my thoughts and prayers, Jim.

Don't even recall taking this picture with Tim (Spirit), but I saw this in Mousedroids C3 album. 

I think that was right before those guys left... somewhere around Guiness #9.   :P

Anyone miss out on this Darth Vader?

You may want to check out the front page news...  ;)

Welcome to JD! :)

I hope that you enjoy your stay and hope to see ya around these parts more than every once in a while!


So for those that have the cases, I'm hearing mixed stories.

Some are saying the plastic is thicker than the Lava Vader case, but others say it is actually thin like Lava Vader.

Anyone else care to comment on the cases they bought?


Celebration III: Indianapolis / Re: CIII Loot: What did j00 get?
« on: April 26, 2005, 04:58 PM »
Here's what I got for me (not counting all the extra stuff I grabbed for the local guys):

1x Celebration 3 T-Shirt
1x Celebration 3 Darth Vader w/Star Case
1x Celebration 3 GG Sandtrooper Mini-Bust

I also got a bunch of "freebie" stuff to include with future trades...
6x WotC Promo Mini Nautolan Soldier - managed to smuggle them past J-MAC  :-X
3x Hasbro Freebie Attacktix - 2x Clone, 1x SBD
3x RotS Red Wristband / Rubber Band dealies
2x Hasbro RotS-56 Posters - I had more, but again, J-MAC stole them all


How come I have 390?

Staff and retirees get to have as many as they want... unless it is over 2000+ like some people have  :-X


Revenge of the Sith / Re: The Mustafar Playset...
« on: April 26, 2005, 03:42 PM »
Well, I did see it up close, and it wasn't all that great.

The "lava" on the playset varies from red to pink and back, not consistent and kinda lame.  :(

The Obi-Wan and Anakin pack-in figures are OK, but nothing great.  Decent likenesses with the basic articulation.  It seemed to be about the same size as the Arena Plaset.  Larger than the Vinty Dagobah set for sure, but not as big as the vinty DS playset.

It has a bunch of built in action features that are OK, but I'd just use it for a diorama peice anyway.  Overall, it was OK, but not "AMAZING" like the Evolution sets were.

I believe I saw a $30-40 price point listed for it...

Had they had merch (and prices) prominently displayed in an area that the line passed.....I think they would have moved it along faster.

I saw display cases in the "non-volunteer" lines.  Big case with everything in it with prices and such.  I walked by it at least 2 times in line, but it STILL didn't help.   >:(

I do agree that the longest time was spent waiting for people to make up their damn minds.  The line would burst into cheers when someone finally paid after taking up 20 minutes deciding.  :P

Plus, it would have went much faster with more registers and more runners to get product to the buyers.  And it would have gone even FASTER if one of the sides of the square was a CASH-only, FIGURE-only line.  It sucked that you still had to stand in the big giant line to get to the front before you could hit the speed lane for CASH/FIGURE-only.
