Just wanted to leave some positive feedback for one of the newcomers here, JES.  I received a lightning quick payment for a box o' figures he was interested in.  Thanks again!

The Prequel Trilogy / Is the PT Lacking "Signature" Vehicles?
« on: August 24, 2009, 03:19 PM »
A friend of mine was mentioning this to me the other day (he is not a fan of the prequels), saying that something that he thought was missing was the "cool" or signature vehicles that we see in the OT.  In a way, I can sort of see that as well.  It may just be nostalgia or an OT preference, but I would think the majority of the "general population" would be familiar enough with the Falcon, TIE Fighters, X-Wings, Speeder Bikes, and possibly the AT-AT to recognize them by name.  There are others that are possible (Slave 1, AT-ST, Landspeeder) as well, although the names might not come to mind for those who aren't as familiar with the movies.

If you look at the PT, I don't know if you could say that.  You've got a ton of non-hardcore fans that saw those movies as well, but I wonder - outside of maybe "Jedi Starfighters" or podracers - if any of the vehicles could be recognized by name at all.  Not that there aren't some cool things (AT-TE, Juggernaught, etc.), but aside from the big podracer focus of Episode I, and possibly the Jedi starfighters in AOTC/ROTS, I wonder if much would be known to the general population - at least when compared to the Original Trilogy.

The Original Trilogy / The Empire Strikes Back - 30th Anniversary
« on: August 14, 2009, 10:01 PM »
Ok, I know this thread is a little bit early, since the 30th Anniversary isn't until 2010, but I was just looking at this feature at, discussing the first trailer for ESB 30 years ago.  I thought it might be a good way to kick off this thread.  They have the video of the actual teaser, and while I'm sure many of us have seen it before, it is still fun to watch I think.  They also have a short article with some facts about it.  I guess I never realized that Harrison Ford did the voice over for this trailer, but now that they say it I can definitely hear that it is him.

Other Toy Lines / Toy Story
« on: August 6, 2009, 01:34 PM »
Although this isn't probably something I'll be collecting, I noticed since our Target re-set their toy section that there is a pretty good amount of Toy Story product in the action figure aisle.  I didn't look real close at things yet, but it looks like a pretty cool line - with Buzz, Woody, etc. - but also buckets o' army men and other things.  Not sure if anyone here is interested in it or not, but it looked like a pretty nice line (with a lot of support, it was nearly half an aisle at our store - sharing with Marvel and DC).

Watto's Junk Yard / Have You "Made the Switch" to BluRay?
« on: August 3, 2009, 07:14 PM »
I wasn't sure if this could go in the DVD thread or not, but I was curious how many people here have made the switch over to blu rays over regular DVD purchases.  We're in the process of saving up and finally getting an HDTV, as well as a blu ray player, sometime before the year is up.  We've sort of been going back and forth wondering if the blu-ray player was "worth it" - but since we're really avid movie watchers, we thought it might be something worth picking up.  My wife was especially on board after she watched Twilight at a friend's house in hi-def.  Anyways, I was just wondering how many of you here have switched to blu ray, or if you're just standing pat with DVDs for now.  Thank goodness you can still play DVDs on the blu ray players, or it would make the decision much tougher with these shelves of movies we already have :) (like many others).

LEGO / LEGO Comic Con Exclusives
« on: July 22, 2009, 11:23 AM »
Just saw this over at Action Figure Insider, seven minifig three packs (one for each movie, one for CW) being sold at Comic Con.  Kind of nifty, wish I could get the OT ones.  I wish we saw stuff like this at retail again, but I know the whole "packaged figure" thing sort of steps on Hasbro's toes.

TV-9D9 / The Clone Wars - Season Two Discussion Thread

MTV Movies Blog has a couple of Season 2 images, one featuring Cad Bane, the other featuring another familiar bounty hunter.  Looks pretty cool to me!

Modern Classifieds / WTB: Loose Galactic Heroes Taun Taun
« on: June 26, 2009, 11:01 AM »
I know it might be a long shot, since they are somewhat rare in that line - but I just thought I'd see if anyone might have an extra GH Taun Taun that they would be willing to get rid of.  Here's some other stuff I'm looking for as well:

Just thought I'd post and see if anyone had happened to pick up extras of the Target cup sets from a few years back.  I have a complete set of them, but we sort of wanted to get some extras to actually "use".  We've been able to get an extra Han and Hoth Luke glass cheap, and I just thought I'd post if anyone else had some extras that they maybe grabbed on clearance and they'd like to get rid of.  Looking for any of the following:

Princess Leia (either)
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Darth Vader
Boba Fett

Just a quick update, if anyone happens to have extras of either of these, I'm looking for the following:

VTSC Bossk (loose)
Galactic Heroes Bossk (loose)

I just wanted to list this seperately, since it tends to get buried in my "for sale" list.  This is the Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Lightsaber Duels game that came out for the Nintendo Wii last November.  I picked it up, and we've only really had the chance to play it once or twice, so I thought I would offer it up for sale.  It is in like new condition, complete with book, case, etc.  We paid $50 at the time, and I was looking for about $30 for it, if anyone is interested.

Just curious if anyone here has (or planning) picked this up.  I believe it just came out this week, although I might be wrong about that.  From the previews and trailers, it looked kind of neat.  I hope to take a look at it eventually, although my days of buying games at full price might be done for the most part (especially after seeing LEGO Star Wars, Indy, and Batman all drop to $19.99 within a year).  Anyways, just wondering if anyone has checked this out yet.

The Prequel Trilogy / Jedi Starfighter Colors
« on: June 8, 2009, 12:06 PM »
I got to thinking about this while rearranging some vehicles over the weekend.  Although this might be more tied to animation and toys than the movies themselves, do you think that the Jedi starfighters should be different colors/designs for each fighter - or a more "standard" look across the ranks?  I was looking at my prequel/CW ships, and the majority of the "good guy" ships (particularly the movie based ones) seem to have that overall red/white color scheme.  I also have the recent Obi-Wan's Delta 2 fighter displayed with those, which is also red/white, and it made me think that might be how I would envision the Jedi's fighters.  More of a standard issue thing, with maybe small differences (like the X-Wings from the OT).  I know we all know that it is done to sell toys and repaints of toys, and repaints of repaints of toys.  Anyways, I know we're not going to see a change in starfighters or anything, but it seems like it is more of an offshoot of the "skittle clone" syndrome that we got with the prequels.  From what we know of the Jedi, the lack of attachments/individuality/etc., I wouldn't think they would all be painting their fighters and astromechs different colors (although I'll admit I don't have a problem with lots of astro droids).  I personally bought quite a few of the previous repainted starfighters, but have found now I don't really have the room for them, and I seem to gravitate more towards the "Obi-Wan" color scheme, which seems to match the republic ships for the most part.

TV-9D9 / "Other" Star Wars Animated Series Rumors
« on: June 8, 2009, 11:46 AM »
I was just listening to the Force Cast where they mentioned that they received a rumor from one of their insiders that there are multiple animated series in various stages of work at Lucasfilm.  In addition to Clone Wars, they mentioned a Galactic Heroes focused toon and one "aimed at older fans".  I don't know if that means Original Trilogy (would be great) or what, but just some rumors I thought I'd pass along.

This is something I was just thinking about today when going through some old bookmarks and coming across the "Tales of the Old Republic" fan-made stuff we saw a few years ago.  I've personally been enjoying a lot of DC Comics' direct to DVD animated movies, and I was wondering if that is a route Star Wars could go.  They really have some nice animation showing up not only on TV but in video games, etc., and could probably put out some nice movies.  This would allow them to do something like say, The Thrawn Trilogy, or even something set in the Old Republic era for fans of that.  I would think they could sell just as well as the Marvel and DC movies that are put out now, or maybe even better.  Anyways, it may just be me still hoping for an OT-era animated series (similar to Clone Wars), but it might be something they could look into.
