The Original Trilogy / Vader in the TIE X1
« on: July 25, 2008, 04:11 PM »
My understanding on the TIE design was that they didn't include any life support mechanism, which required the pilot to wear the helmet with the tubes going to the box on his chest, right?  How come Vader doesn't need something similar?  He spends the entire OT breathing audibly, so clearly he doesn't rely on internal air supplies most of the time.  This is particularly noticeable when he fights Luke on Bespin because Luke sprays Vader in the face with some gas coming from a tube.

So my question is, what do you guys think, does the X1 have internal life support, or does Vader's suit have some sort of capacity to exist in vacuum which he has to turn on before flying a TIE?

Does the helmet come out of the hood?  I sure hope it does, but I haven't seen any picture with the hood separated.  I'm liking the slight change in the headsculpt, or is that being reused from a figure I don't remember?

I didn't get one in 2006, or in 2007, or the first half of 2008, but I broke down and got a Moff Jelljar at Target today, i couldn't pass him up at a buck sixty six.  He was an easy pass when he was 7 dollars all last year.

Can I be the first to say that Hasbro's new line of Ultra-Shadow Might Muggs is a bit too far?  Actually this seems like kind of a neat idea, since it costs Hasbro no extra money it terms of development, and gives customizers a great outlet.  Not that there seems to be a shortage of C-3POs that people who were interested could paint over, but still an interesting idea.

I've been looking for the Chewie for a couple weeks, but haven't seen him.  I did get the Grevious and Palpy though. :)

I like the Imp Engineer, but if we were getting a BF2 figure I'd rather have gotten the Bothan Spy or Rebel Smuggler, but those wouldn't have been a repaint.  Maybe a kitbash, but not a repaint.

I've only got the Yoda, but I'm thinking he needs a buddy.  Do I go with an enemy (ex. Palpy), or a buddy (Mace, Chewie, Obi-Wan)?  I'm having a hard time deciding and I really do have to choose (since diapers are not optional).

Looking forward to Faie, the two little people Jedi, the Imp Engineer.  Maybe its just the sample, but how come the holographic Dooku doesn't have a holographic lightsaber hilt?  Haven't all the other holographic figures had holographic weapons?   Maybe they'll fix before they release it.

If you are ever in Albany, go to Jack's Oyster House.  Its down-town, down the hill from the Capital building.  My brother is one of the chefs there.  Plus all the high-power stuffed-suit politicians and lobbyists eat there.  Nice atmosphere, but a bit on the pricey side for a town like Albany.

Ep5. Star Destroyer
Ep6. Star Destroyer

While we were watching AOTC we got to the arena scene where two Jedi toss lightsabers to Anakin and Obi-Wan.  Anyone remember who those cameo actors are?  I thought they were from a 90s boyband, but my wife didn't recognize them and I couldn't remember who they were.  Anyone know?

Watched AOTC the other night and a couple things kinda stuck out.

When they are in the droid factory, why do Padme and Anakin seem to run away from each other.  I know Padme does the whole obsticle course thing with the machines, and the Geonosians attack Anakin, but it seems like they really didn't make a lot of effort to move towards each other.  Like Anton's comment about Anakin's reaction, a tiny little thing added to this scene would make it more believeable, like Padme being chased by a Geonosian the whole time, or Anakin telling her to head toward the exit and he'll get the control room, something....

I felt bad for Ewan MacGregor, watching him interact with the Kaminoans was a little tough.  Clearly talking to a CGI character hasn't been refined to the level of creating that CGI character.  I didn't really like the scene at Deks diner either, seemed to have the same stunted feel, where it needed a little more fleshing out.
