I was born and raised in MA, and I've been living in NYC for the past 6 years. I have to deal with crap all the time about liking the Red Sox. It is almost like a thankless job. I really hope they pull through....seriously...

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Saddam's Two Sons Killed in U.S. Raid
« on: July 23, 2003, 10:34 AM »
Not to sound like a cynic, but other than figureheads, I want to know how much guys like Saddam and Osama really matter any more. Other than morale, is capturing them really going to make that much of a difference? I have to wonder how much of an impact capturing Saddam's two sons will have. If anything, I see it making things worse, or at least not helping.

I think the US needs to start concentrating a little more heavily on North Korea. They're the ones with nukes, and they're desperate enough to use them. I think the oppression there is much more serious than anything encountered in the Middle East.

Hmmmmm, guess I do sound like a cynic.

I think it will have some impact on the Iraqi people. I mean, those two sons were pretty bad mofos, and I'm sure the Iraqi people will be a little less upset about us being there now these guys are dead...well....maybe. But I'm sure they'll feel more confident about their new "gov't" now that there's no chance of the Saddam family getting back into power and punishing the civilians.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Kenobi 7, Jango Fett 6
« on: July 19, 2003, 02:12 AM »
I'm still waiting for an ultimate Jango, with lots of articulation and no action features. And of course a removeable helmet, missle and two jetpacks. Maybe they could even base him off the video game and throw in a sniper rifle and some grenades...

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Rozatta !!!

Great job man! I also really like your first custom. Bounty Hunter is a kick @ss game, and I'm planning a few customs from that myself.

As far as Montross, I've been checking a few of those 21st Century Xtreme detail figures to find the right head for him. I want to make him with a removeable Mandalorian helmet, so I'm trying to find a head that doesn't require paint. Let me know if you come across a good one.

Keep up the good work!

Other Toy Lines / Re: plan b emergency special forces line...

I have a couple of those SWAT guys, and I think this is a really solid line.

I've been collecting these figures for a few months now, and I have several of the "Mission 2 Special Forces" as well as one of the mission 3 Gamestop exclusives. There are some great figures in these lines. The SEAL Night Ops diver comes with a removeable rebreather, removeable fins, an HK, a pistol that fits into the holster on his leg which comes with a removeable silencer, and a mine. Other figures in the series are equipped similarly. They go great with Marvel Legends and/or the Movie Maniacs 6 Aliens and Predators.

The Company is really great too. They actually go onto their toy boards and ask their customers what they want next. They answer questions, and discuss their products with the consumer. They have an offer where you can send a self-addressed stamped envelope, and they'll send you substitute heads (the heads on their figures are interchangeable) free of charge.

Basically, Plan-B puts out solid figures and they don't cheap-out on accessories, so I'll continue to buy from them.


Maybe the two digs will share arms? I guess it could still be the vintage one if they share arms. And maybe legs or something. I'm really excited about these figures. This is good, solid stuff from Hasbro....and not an action feature in sight. :D

I'll have to be honest though...I'm really excited about the new Emperor figure. I know its not exactly new or anything, but I've been wanting a new Emp for years now, and this one kicks the POTF2 one "squaw in tha nyuts!"

Hey Cory, which Tusken is that? Is it the one with the removeable head or the one with the Massiff?

My, my, my! What a fine posterior Padme has....looks like that conveyer belt running has done a world of good for her.  ;)

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Imperial 4-pk - how many do you have?
« on: July 11, 2003, 10:05 AM »
I have 2 of this set, and I honestly have to hold myself back from getting more. That Vader is easily my favorite Vader we have.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Regime Change...
« on: July 10, 2003, 02:37 PM »
I think this topic really asks the question, "Is there such a thing as a perfect government?"

Lets consider the apparent Pros of the Galactic Empire...

*Military Might to defend itself and its people
*Space Exploration/Colonization (Imperialism, a Con in disguise?)
*Better security/policing
*streamlined gov't.

These all seem like they'd be great in theory. But all it takes is corruption for these pros to become cons. The people of the Galactic Empire basically became slaves to it. Military Might was not used to defend its people, it was used to police its people. Personal liberties were tentative. As long as you didn't draw attention to yourself, you were fine. And I'm sure there are many cultures on Earth that weren't such big fans on the United States or Great Britain and their "colonization" programs.

And what if you have a legal issue? Unlawful search? Who would you go to? I doubt you'll hear Miranda rights from a stormtrooper, though you'd probably hear half a dozen blaster shots tearing your family to pieces. I bet that's what Uncle Owen heard before they tossed a thermal detonator at him.

The thing with the Galactic Empire is that there's no system of checks and balances in place. The Emperor has complete control. He can have a planet destoying weapon built if he wants, and also have it used. Would you really want the Darth Lord of the Sith in charge of your gov't? And you think Dubya is bad...

I think if we can watch these movies and practice suspension of disbelief, we need to imagine that the Alliance will form a more perfect union, with liberty and justice for all. Okay that was cheezy. But in reality, the Old Republic fell because of its corruption, and at the heart of the cancer of the Old Republic was Darth Sidious.

Great topic, by the way!
