Revenge of the Sith / Episode III line....April 2nd, 2005
« on: July 19, 2004, 07:08 PM »
We've all heard the rumors that the Epsiode III line would be released in early April 05.
However, we now have semi-offical confirmation of that fact. The Offical Site today reveild that the Art of Episode III book would be coming out on the 2nd, as well as the Making of Episode III book.
Now in years past, these kinds of books were released at the same time as the Hasbro line, so given these facts, and previous reports, it looks as though the Episode III line will become available on April 2, 2005.

You heard it here first!

No these have not hit US Retail, however I obtained this figure through Alliance Collectables, at the fair price of $11.95.

Mind you some of the pictures are blurry, par usual with me. However today I've had two tornados hit my city, so bare with me.

The clamshell is flimsy. Not as sturdy as I would have expected, but non the less it's nice, as far as clamshells go.

I then began to open the clamshell, being carefull not to damage the figure. I noticed that the two emblems on the top of the shell are what holds it in place, much like a button. These bottons are aided by two strips of tape along the side.

I then opened the box, and the figure just fell out. Nice and easy, no twist ties or anything.  :D

This figure is loaded with articulation, and can hold many of the modern weapons.

Speaking of weapons, the gun is made of hard plastic, as is the rest of the figure. Very nice.

Next I began to size him up next to other figures, and, well, take a look. He appears to be the perfect match.

So that's it. I'm quite pleased that Hasbro actually made something good. I'm more displeased that the figure came today, as I went to bed at 10 AM, and awoke at 1:00 to the first Tornado. However I digress, this figure is a perfect 10.

Tonight, in my usual nearly retarded stuper of bordem, I decided to look at the member list to see who we have signed up here. However, when I got there I noticed a lot of 'ghosts', or people with less than 2 posts. So what's the plan with these people? Will they be carried over to JD 2.0 (or whatever number it is) or will they be deleted.

I for one say delete them, really just a waste of space. (Like I'm one to talk  :P)

Original Trilogy Collection / Comic Con (former Drop Box)
« on: June 16, 2004, 12:05 PM »
 Well, as we are fast on the approach of Comic Con San Diego (nice city too, btw) I figured it'd be time to make a thread where we could speculate on what we'll see, and propose questions to JediMac, who will be attending the con (props go to OCB for that suggestion)

Und here ve go...

Qs for Big H:

Why is it that the SA Clonetrooper was released in such a small amount? Any chance of a re-release for the 2nd Season of Clone Wars? Or possibly reusing the body (sans helmet) for the Episode III Clonetrooper?
And along the same lines: What are the chances of the Clone Wars Army Builder Three Packs being re-released with updated decals and gear (ie clones) for Episode III?

How are you approaching the Episode III line in aspects of Articulation? Are we looking at definative sculpts with good articulation ala the VOTC, or craptastic sculpts with super mega kungfu action?

Seeing as how a correctly scaled TIE Fighters wings would be 16 inches tall, what are the chances of such a large iteam being released as an exclusive, much like the Imperial Shuttle or Sandcrawler?

Favorite Collecting Site? :P

I've decided to post one of my first attempts at a photoshoping here, after about a year. This cityscape was created by me last year and I suppose it's my capital city, it draws it's influences from Corucasnt, New York, Tokyo, Chicago and partly Hong Kong. I suppose I'll call this city Valamonchor, after the infamous empire I built in an RTS game soooo many years ago. Without further adew, here it is:

Constructive critism more than welcome.  :)

This is the conclusion to the battle of Nal Salio, the story goes like this...

After 4 months the long campaign for Nal Salio is drawing to a close, the Republic has overrun the capital city, with only a the palace still standing, on the huge courtyard the two sides clash with massie amounts of casualities. Meanwhile Mace Windu along with a group of Salian loyalists try to break into the thrown room, aided by a group of ARC troopers things are going well, so far. Little do they know that a Confederate dignitary is try to make a deal to bring a small sect of Mandalorian Militiamen into the frey as his personal bodyguards...

pics will be coming after I return form spring break...

Watto's Junk Yard / Pedestrian

I feel sick. I just walked form my school to my house. Big deal,eh? OH YEAH! Thats about 7 miles!

Heres the story...

This morning I remembered that my mom wouldn't be able to pick me up from school this afternoon (being that its a wednesday my dad is working at his practice in West Columbia.)

So after the homeroom bell rings I go and ask my friend Dillion if I can get a ride home with him. He says he'll ask his mom after school. Accepting this, I am confident that I can get a ride.

Well, the day passed and Dillion forgot. I could not find him in all the hall traffic and just decided I'd walk home... BIG MISTAKE

So, I formulate a plan to call my mom at 3:30 and hang out with my friends. But, when I go to the office at 3:30 a teacher was on the phone. After about 10 minutes she got off and I called. No awnser. No biggie, I'll just walk I say confidently. ::)

At 3:36 I was on the road, heading up east main street, towards a Wal-Mart. Super, the wankers didn't have a bloody side walk, so I had to detour across the parking lot. Fabulous, the Wal-Tards don't have a side walk there either. So I cross East Main street (although out here its US Highway 29)

By 4 o'clock I'm only 2 miles away form the school. Providentaly, I'm was approaching a BP. And so armed with a twenty pound book bag and 7 pound binder (literaly) I walk in and buy a 1 liter pepsi.
The girl working at the counter (a pretty black girl with orange hair) asks why am I so sweaty, I explain the situation to her and she says exactly what I had been contemplating for most of the walk. ''I would have just gone to some place and eatn' and get someone to pick me up,''
I then ask to use the phone and she replies, wait for the manager to come in. Indeed five minutes later the manager arrives and I call my mom.
''They're in the middle of doing my hair,'' she says and ventures to pick me up in 30 minutes. I angerdly reply I'll call my friends house and see if they can shuttle me home. However, there was no awnser, so I thanked the girls for letting me use the phone and was on my way.
I was 3 miles from home and it was 4:19.
The rest of the trip was fairly easy other than the fact I had a constant struggle of holding the binder, the pepsi, and my pants up while walking home.By 4:58 I was three blocks from home, the pepsi (remember one whole liter) had long since been drank. And at 5:07 I was home.

Also on a side note: I have to turn in my mythology project tommorow and it counts 45-50 times. :-\ and I still have yet to complete it. ::)

The point of this post is to share your pedestrian storys, so whats your most interesting pedestrian story?

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Theory on SA Clonetrooper
« on: February 23, 2004, 10:43 PM »
Has anyone considered the possiblity,that,Hasbro indeed had advanced knowledge that in Epiosde III the clones would have the same body armour minus the helmet,and therefore started using the SA Clone scuplt to start craking out loads of clones?
No hold on,befour you just pass this off as bunk,hear me out.Is it possible that Hasbro has actually learned that army builders sell well,especially super posable ones?So is it conciveable that they've been producing SA clones enmasse for the release of Episode III?Think about it,if indeed this is the case(as unlikey as it is)then is it possible we could get a plain white basic one on a regular release card,but a possible pack of variation colors for the different theaters of operation?

Ahhh,it's a pipe dream,but how much of a long shot do you think this is?Do you think it's possible that the SA clone has continued production for Episode III clone?
