I am going to try this, see if I can keep below 2000 dollars for plastic toys, 3000 dollars for the entire lot including DVDS/CDS.

So far for Jan I have spent:
TCW - Padme (8.00)
EVO - B-Wing Pilot Keyan Farlander (8.99 from ebay, including S&H)

So Grand Total is - 16.99 (for Jan so far)

Ok I want both of these figures, now show us the other ones you havent Hasbro.

Nice figure, have no use for him, any other word on who else is going to be in this line up.

I heard Zam Wessel, now if she is in it I want her, providing she is SA.

Dont like the Palps, I am sorry in ESB he was a floating holographic head - not ROTS Palps, even in ROTJ the one I really wanted to be remade - he doesnt use a lightsaber, also the hood is crap.

Luke Skywalker even though a good figure, I dont need it so I will be skipping this one.

Princess Leia Organa - skipping this one as well, and hoping for this figure with ANH head on it.

Ugnaughts - now we are talking like these and want these.

Captain Needa - I like it and want it.

Hoth Rebel Troopers - I love these, just hope they do the skirts for them in PVC or SG.

I was apprehensive about the Kyle until I saw him, now I am bring on the dancing girls.

Cant wait for this figure, the Yuuzhan Vong and the Purge Trooper.

No probs Jesse, yeah this one has been avoiding me since it came out, I dont want to get the figure with the leg if I can help it but, it looks like I may have to get it later on in the year, thanks again. ;D

I did something similair over on Yakface, but I said what would you change in the movies and listed all of them 1 through 6, these are the changes I would make to the movies.

Ok things I would change.

Here are some ideas:
Ep. 1
1) Change Naboo to Alderaan - it would make the whole story make more sense, and it would make Alderaan an important target again, but this time for the Trade Federation.
2) Introduce Bail Organa and Owen Lars at this movie -- these are the people who brought Luke and Leia up, they're important, I would do a homage and make Owen and Beru know Anakin Skywalker - ALA A New Hope cut scene with Biggs and Cami and Fixer.
3) Make Anakin a little older (and a better actor) and give him a personality
4) Keep Jar-Jar as is but make him less of a bumbling fool, similair to the new Clone Wars.
5) I would have C-3PO and R2-D2 as part of the Alderaan Royal Court, so they would be together from day one.
6) I would make Obi-Wan the Jedi Master and Qui-Gon Jinn the Apprentice, and then Obi-Wan could have been taught by Yoda, and then he looses the Qui-Gon Jinn Padawan to Darth Maul, and Starts to Train Anakin as his new Padawan.
7) Darth Maul should have been used more, and kept around till the second movie, and have dooku be his apprentice.
8) Change the Pod Race and get rid of all the CGI Aliens, and use Aliens Already Established from the WEG RPG Books (this means using established alien species long before the PT Aliens appeared on screen), in other words make it better and similair to the Races in the Droids Cartoon, hell even use Thall Joben and Jord Dusat.
9) Anakin should not save the day here, it should have been Obi-Wan and the forces of Alderaan.
10) No midi-chlorins more mysticism
11) No virgin birth, however keep Mysterious Birth (to latter be explained away or not)
12) Make Breha Organa the Queen of Alderaan, with Princess Padme Organa as her younger Sister and show both in this movie.

Ep. 2.
1) More development and back story of Obi-Wan
2) Better back story for Boba Fett
3) More about the Jedi and the way they train and work
4) Better Actor to portray Anakin - Hayden cant act
5) Have the death of Anakin's mother as the first scene of the movie, thus making it significant to Anakin's state of mind throughout the next 2 movies.

Possible idea: Obi-Wan wishes to negotiate with the Sandpeople. Anakin goes against this idea and attempts a failed rescue. Anakin blames himself and Obi-Wan and the Jedi for not being able to do anymore and not acting quicker. Palpatine gloats over Jedi indifference to family, and starts to use this to sway Anakin over to his side, by stating if he had only known he would have intervined. This would give Anakin's decision to switch sides more grounding, this would come from the fact his mother had died and the way the jedi handle emotions.

1) Anakin should not walk away when he finds out who Palpatine is because by this time Palpatine should have been able to seduce Anakin with the promise or power and greatness, but keep reminding Anakin that the Jedi would not allow this (basically letting the dark side take control off Anakin)
2) Obi-Wan should not be responsible for leaving Anakin to burn and die, this isnt in his character, hell they were considered to be brothers - would you walk away and leave your brother to die.
3) More about the Fledgeling Rebellion and Padme's role as one of its co-founders.
4) A more respectable death to Padme, and a more heroic one.
5) More screen time for Vader in suit - I would have the scene where Obi-Wan and him Fight earlier on and have Obi-Wan try to bring him back over to the light side, believing its not to late, like he tells Luke "I once thought like you but hes more machine than man now" or something along those lines.

Ep. 4-6
Remove all re-release additions to the movie except cool scenery, and some of the more interesting Aliens.

Immediate gut reaction is hands off and fix the mistakes you have done to this, then I stopped and wondered how could they make it better, what would enhance it, these points are the ones I came up with.

1) First thing that should be altered is the who shot first, Han shot first it's that simple.
2) Take out all the stupid little sound effects and put the original sound effects back in (I.E. Ben's Krayt Scream is not frightening its annoying).
3) Make the Space Battle at the end bigger, dont alter who goes into blow the Death Star Up, but who is actually tieing all those Tie Fighters and other Imperial Ships up while the Trench Run is happening - There is supposed to be a Blue and Green Squadron show them, they dont have to be taking part in the big battle with the Death Star, because it would be their job to tie up the Imperial Ships.

1) Put in the scene with the Wampas and Snowtroopers, also the Ice Laser.
2) Change Boba Fett's voice back to the original.
3) I was going to say take out Luke's Girlie Scream.

1) Leave the Ewoks Alone, repeat do not touch these guys.
2) Put back in the Original Song Max's Band performed.
3) Put the old Ewok Song back in.
4) Make the Battle Bigger at the end.
5) Put back in Shaw at the end, because thats the biggest crime commited against Star Wars in any of the Movies.

Yesterday when I first saw them I was yes want all of them, after looking at them again I have decided I dont want all of them.

Luke - I have to admit is going to be an easy pass unless I can score him for cheap.

Leia - Yes, and I also must now pick up a VOTC Leia (Well her head in anycase).

The Emperor - Nope just wont suit my collection, never liked the idea of Palps kicking off with a lightsaber in the PT Movies (he should have remained a manipulator, but with great power), and he never appeared in TESB with a lightsaber, let alone appearing in a solid state, I would have preferred it if they had went back and improved the Floating Head and released that.

Captain Needa - Yes, I might get a couple of these.

Ugnaughts - Yes, however I wish they had done a better sculpt for the heads, instead of using POTF2 heads, also I am hoping the ugnaughts at least get the tool bag.

Hoth Rebel Trooper - Yes, but I hope they give him his skirt piece, either in soft goods or plastic.

Jesse would you be willing to sell the R4-D6 left leg if it hasnt already went.

Collector's Tips / Re: Opened Cards... what to do with them?

I only collect the VOTC/VTAC/VTSC cardbacks, and only because they are Faux Vintage.

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Jaxxon

I am going to try those, for the H'uhk I am going to be looking at the 5 inch scale so I can get the height, as for the Stenax Warrior (I still dont know if there is anything out there that could be built on, I was thinking gargoyle figure base, but the Stenax Warrior is Skiny but Muscular, some of these are going to be a labor of love, others should come together nicely).

Admiral Tower should be easy enough with the New Imperials, and the eye from C-3PO with Salacious Crumb, and scarf from a G.I. joe or Han Solo (Sandstorm scene) and hat from Lt Jundland, the only thing is trying to get the likeness right headwise.
