It says he's vac-metallized, so I think it's silver. Which I'm sure is the reason for the giant price point. ::)

Count me in as sick and tired of this crap. I can't stand how everything that is released is exclusive. Why must that be? And the price points for figures are really pushing it. We asked for multiples of Clones. That's all the people want. People will not buy them when it's a repainted figure that costs $7 more than normal.

Please stop the madness, Hasbro!

The Clone fan inside of me wants one, but I cannot spend $20 on one Clone Trooper. That's ******* ridiculous. **** and their hidiously overpriced exclusive items.

On the figure itself, I think the gray parts look cool, but the camo is rather homo.

Final decision: PASS

YES! For the love of God, I am SICK AND TIRED of exclusives. I have grown to hate them! Why the **** must EVERY SINGLE THING be exclusive? It's like everything that isn't part of the basic line is exclusive. Why must that be? A lot of these items could sell well everywhere.

I don't know, it just feels like they're just releasing exclusives everywhere because they can. It's really starting to annoy me.

LEGO / Tank Droid MINI
« on: August 28, 2005, 09:14 PM »
Found this at that other site:

Apparently it was set to be a promotional MINI, but it was cancelled for unknown reasons. Now I need to find the right pieces to make it!

The droid is cool, I like how it matches the bug thing. The Clone is okay, I agree with Kev about the shoulders. It makes it look a bit bulky, IMO.

But I'm digging the Tylin! It's awesome! A sneak peek at things to come? ;)

Wow, that was good! I enjoyed that. I know you were limited in shooting, but I would have used that Senate shot you made earlier and inserted it at the beginning, just to show that they're in the Senate. I will admit that I was confused the first time you sent it to me. I was like "Where's the Senate? What's going on?" The battle shots were good though. Me likey.

I also liked that scuffle while Bail and Riegen were talking, though I felt it should have been in the background a bit more. IMO, it kind of took away the focus from the discussion, although that's probably what you meant to do.

Overall, it was good! I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing more of Kobarra, and I'd also like to see Palpatine's reaction to Bail's behavior in the Senate.

Sweet update! I agree about searching the helmet and paying respects to Callie when leaving. I'm thinking she has both Imperial AND Rebel connections, so that would explain the Stormie armor.

Another excellent job! I can't wait to see what happens next!:D

CHEWIE: Thanks! I also made a blaster that can attach to the top of the Astroman's dome, but it makes him look like some sort of faucet. :P

darth_ripley: Thanks a lot! I'm definately going to keep making more customs, and I'm slowly trying to move myself into 3-3/4 inch territory. ;)

Dressel Jr.: Umm, no. :P

Gregorbian: Thanks! No, I don't paint the bodies/details. So far all of my customs have been made out of official Lego pieces. Example: Dash is made with a Jango Fett body, an AOTC Obi-Wan head, AOTC Anakin hair, and chest armor from a Shogun. Just some simple limb swapping. :)

Thanks again to everyone for viewing!

Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS - #57 and beyond
« on: August 27, 2005, 12:13 PM »
I would have preferred Gree to have the Gunner body, personally. He doesn't really do much but kneel and hold his blaster, which is what the Gunner is good for, IMO. And Gree's fig can't do much but stand around at the moment, until we get a BARC Trooper.

Also, just out of curiosity, could they have popped an ROTS Clone head on the AOTC SA Clone body ala the Target Clone? The #41 and CW Clone are pretty much the same, except for weathering and the slot for the antenna. This way we could have gotten everything SA.

Damn, I love it all! The Clones are simply amazing, and I'm really digging the diorama. It looks so real!

Thanks for the replies! The screenshots are coming soon, SLC. If you want them sooner, you could blackmail my teachers. ;)

Here is today's update. Please excuse the semi-crappiness of the pics. I really need to learn to take pictures when it's daylight out. :P

First, we have a villian from TSR, Commander Tiller Quaas:

Followed by another TSR villian, Admiral Andross Margalit:

Next up is Obi-Wan Kenobi in Clone Armor:

And straight out of Shadows of the Empire, Dash Rendar!

Next, we have a man with an Astromech body. He has no name, and was injured in a battle during the Clone Wars. Scientists were able to hook his brain cords with Astromech cords, allowing him to live AND allowing him eternal life, or until someone destroys the body or breaks the glass tube over his head.

And last but not least, Jedi Master Arcan Nevik. Beware his special lightsaber attack, the Arcan Saw!

I MUST have one!

*counts money*

Awesome pics! My favorite is the last one with the Calamari being tortured. Also, I like the custom AT-ST. Looks very good!

Can't wait for the full thing to be posted!

When I go on toy runs, I either go North or South. North of me, I stop by a Target and a Wal-Mart. South of me is a Wal-Mart, Target, and TRU. I rarely hit South though, too much traffic for my liking.

So in total:

2x Target
2x Wal-Mart
1x TRU
