Tarkin should definitely be in Episode 3.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Who kills who in E3

My bet...

Anakin kills Dooku to take his place at Palpatine's side, choosing the dark path, where Luke chose the light side in ROTJ.

How do you post a link as just a word rather than the entire URL?

I entered this contest over at where I had to identify a bunch of action figures, several of which were Star Wars figures. I actually won! Check it out...

I feel so nerdy...  :-[

They didn't include this on the DVD's cut scenes, but that god-awful dinner table scene with Padme's family was yippy-freakin-skippy?

Going back to the original topic, this is how I see it:

*Tan Battledroids are from the Trade Federation's private army.

*Red Battledroids are from the Techno Union's Army.

*Super Battledroids are not painted...yet (we see a Super Battledroid chassis being assembled in the Droid Factory. Anakin's arm and lightsaber get caught beneath it)

*Droidekas are unpainted. Trade Federation or otherwise. We see Droideka parts on the conveyer belts in the Droid Factory.

The fact that the Super Battledroids are not painted may be a result of their new design. We know for a fact that the regular Battle Droid is at least a little more than 10 years old, since we see them in TPM. We also know that the Super Battledroid (referred to by Wat Tambor as "these new Battledroids") is new. We actually see the majority of their construction as Anakin and Padme travel through the factory. There seems to be more involved in their construction than with the regular Battledroids, who seem to be merely assembled quickly from pre-made parts.

Though we're never flat-out told, I beleive that the SBDs in the arena were supposed to be the first time they were brought out. A paint scheme for the Techno Union or any potential customer may not have been agreed upon by that point. I also think that once Obi-Wan was discovered, Dooku, Poggle, and Wat knew they needed to produce as many of these SBDs as possible. Dooku at least knew about the Clone Army...

Boba Fett 300th. One of my favorite figures, and an excellent example of what we should be getting for our money...even though he was $10...

Commtech R2. Best R2, hands down. He should be rereleased.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Some Walmarts NOT carrying Star Wars now!

That really, really sucks, bro. But look on the bright least you have some Walmarts around you. There's none of them around NYC. I'd give up my Tibanna Gas Mine for a Walmart! :D

Hell, I'm a graphic designer and I feel that all written material should be correct. Spelling and grammar aren't just important for people with an editorial background, its the language you communicate in. If you don't care enough to make certain your spelling is correct, then you're doing yourself a disservice.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Luke and Darth: A New Hope...What are they?

Galactic Hunter is reporting that there will be an ANH Luke and Vader released using the Commtech Tattoine Luke, and the MOTDS Vader. Bravo Hasbro. I think its good to keep a Luke and Vader on the pegs for kids to pick up, and these are nice versions of both.

Oh no no no no no no photos of me in there. :-X

I just heard Carrie talking about being a photographer and then "Playgirl", so I mentioned the company.

I'm an Art Director in the adult publishing industry, though I also work as a freelance Graphic Designer/Illustrator. I'm looking to move into (mainstream) package design very soon. I started working at this company about 3 years ago (straight out of college) just for the health insurance while I looked for a mainstream job. However, in this economy it seems lucky just to have a job.

thanks cc your not to bad your self(flirt flirt) on that day i had forgot to shave and had to have my spotlight photos done so im not on top form there

Well, the scruffy look is something you can definitely work with in acting. so forgetting to shave that day may have not been a bad thing. My interest in photography compels me to ask if you've got any photos of yourself from perhaps a Playgirl magazine layout? (please, nobody ban me  :))

Actually Carrie, while I don't work on that particular publication, my company publishes Playgirl.
