Saga Collection '06 / Re: 2006 Exclusives

I'm not believing any of this until I see pics or hear about it from all the other sites. These RS 411's are a joke, as they offer NO new information ("It's possible __(figure name)__ could be a resculpt, but we're betting it's a repack!"), and sometimes they seem to be talking out of their ass.

HOWEVER, if this is true, it sounds like TRU has the best exclusives of the bunch. What a surprise!

Damn, those are great pics! If you can add some effects, they would look like a frame of film!

I'm sure someone will come along and make an old man joke. :P

Well, I'm having oral surgery the week before Christmas - the wisdom teeth are coming out. Actually, since I'm still pretty young, I should say they're being dug out. I hear bad things about wisdom teeth, hopefully it doesn't hurt too much... :-\

While I enjoy getting the extra hour of sleep, I sorta dislike how it gets dark early now. It just turned 5:00, and the sun is already halfway down! It's crazy, I tells ya.

Watto's Junk Yard / RIP Jek Porkins

From RS:

Whatsonstage.com reports that William Hootkins (AKA: Porkins) has passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 58.

Here's a snipet from Whatsonstage.com:

American stage and screen actor William Hootkins - who lived and worked for many years in the UK and was last seen on the London stage in Hitchcock Blonde - has passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Diagnosed earlier this year, he died yesterday (Sunday 23 October 2005) at St Johns Hospital in Santa Monica near his Californian home. He was 58.

Born in Dallas, Texas on 5 July 1948, the ebullient Hootkins – known as Bill or ‘Hoot’ to his friends - made his stage debut in a local school production that co-starred a fellow student who later had success in Hollywood, Tommy Lee Jones. He initially tried to distance himself from drama by studying astrophysics and Chinese linguistics at Princeton University, but soon became involved with Princeton’s Intime Theatre group. On the recommendation of his friend, John Lithgow, he moved to the UK after graduation to study at LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) and subsequently made his home in this country.

In a busy career, Hootkins worked regularly on both sides of the Atlantic. His first film role was in 1977, playing Jedi fighter Jek Porkins in George Lucas' Star Wars. Though the part was small, it had a big impact. He joked in a Whatsonstage.com interview two years ago (See 20 Questions, 28 Jul 2003): “In a sense, my career's been downhill ever since. Fans still come to greet me at the stage door with action figures of my character and embarrassing photographs for me to sign.”

------

That stinks. He's the second SW actor to die this year.

RIP  :'(

You know, the more I look at it, I think the Vader is the same as the 500th version, perhaps with a different head (no removeable helmet)...

Ah, that's actually a cool idea. Thanks for the info! Sucks about the missing pistol, but oh well. Like Jeff said, 2 of each set should take care of it, which is what I plan on getting.

What's the deal with the second belt anyway? Why is it needed?  ???

And I'm happy to see that the Rebublic is no more. :P

Agreed, not bad at all. The only flaw I have really is the hair, there's too much of it for kids that young.
