Saga '02-'04 / Re: SAGA Drying Up Again?
« on: March 22, 2004, 03:10 PM »
Seems to continue to be dry as a bone around here.  Got a chance to do some shopping in a little bigger area (Omaha, NE) this weekend, and it was almost worse there than it is around here.  All I could find was Dignitaries, repacks of Barris, Aayla, and Younglings, and some more Animated Clone Wars figures.  I guess every year has some sort of down time like this, hopefully things will start showing up for people soon.  A side note, I don't think any of the Wal-Marts nearest to us (all three of the "super" variety) even have pegs for the Ultra wave, has anyone else noticed this?

The Original Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Trilogy Final DVD Art

Yeah, I really like the packaging art for these as well.  Even though these are movies we have all seen 100s of times, I am so looking forward to having these on DVD in the fall.  I like how they ended up doing the packaging, and hopefully we'll hear some more details on the extras sometime soon.

I was curious if anyone here caught the new Simpsons episode last night, the first half or so of it had a ton of Star Wars (CosmicWars) references, and really poked fun at how the new movies are quite bad and are lacking the story, etc. of the original films.  They showed the entire movie was basically set in the senate, taking roll call :).  It is pretty funny, especially for Star Wars fans.  If you missed it, I believe has the clips available for download.

Other Toy Lines / Re: Muppets
« on: March 18, 2004, 02:39 PM »
bullet1fan....I might be interested (especially in the Kermit) if I'm not able to get one through (if it ever opens again).  I'll let you know, but if you have someone else that needs one before then that is fine too.  Thanks so much.

That's how I feel about it too Scott, I'd only want the "basics" from the Original Muppet Show...I don't have any interest in the "Muppets Tonight" or the various movies.  Oh...and Adventure Kermit of course :P.

I could definitely see where Minimates would be fun to collect (and addictive!).  Plus, I can totally see your aspect of space....being able to keep them all in a shoebox.  That is appealing to me, and maybe a reason why at times I'm not crazy about 6" scale stuff...just not enough room.  Then again, I collect some Unleashed, so how can I talk about space issues?  ::)  That is one reason why a part of me is leaning towards collecting minimates (or kubricks) of things I like (Batman, Marvel, Muppets).  Plus, it sounds like everyone who collects this scale really enjoys their collections.

Other Toy Lines / If You Could Only Choose One Other Toy Line....
« on: March 18, 2004, 11:22 AM »
I was just thinking about this this morning, since I have wanted to jump into a number of different lines over the past year...but due to money/space issues I haven't actually done it a number of times.  Not taking into consideration if you already have a "base" collection established, if you only had the money or funds to collect one thing outside of Star Wars stuff...what would it be?  I guess I'm saying, if you could start from scratch...which line would you choose if any?

Although I like figures/characters from a number of lines (Batman, MOTU), for me it would probably come from either Marvel Legends, LOTR, or the Muppets.  Right now I've been on a big Muppet kick due to nostalgia, the Indy Kermit, and recently picking up one of those "Best of the Muppet Show" DVDs.  I've always been, and always will be, a big fan of LOTR stuff...those movies are just so amazing.  I would also like to continue to collect the X-figs from Marvel Legends, which just have great product.  I guess if I could actually afford one line, and had to choose only one.....boy, its tougher than I thought.  Palisades runs things so well from what I have read, and their product is amazing.  Plus, that has the nostalgia factor.  LOTR is so cool.  And also, I really like the Marvel Legends figures.  I guess right now I'll say Muppets, although that will probably change tomorrow (it usually does with me it seems).

Other Collectibles / What is Your Favorite "Other SW Collectible"?
« on: March 18, 2004, 11:02 AM »
Sometimes it seems like the "other" collectibles are neverending for Star Wars, and I know that there are several others that I would like to get into if I had the money and space for them.  Out of what you have in your collection, which is your favorite "other" collectible...whether it is a single item or a certain line of items.  For me, outside of basic figures (vintage and modern) and the ships, etc. along with them, the other collectibles I have are OT Unleashed, the Playskool line (OT only), and I'm working on completing a Burger King Glass set (and a few other miscellaneous items).  I guess for me, I like all of these other focuses....but the Playskool line or the glasses would be my favorite.  I am really hoping the Playskool line does end up continuing...and I look forward to completing the OT glasses sometime this year too.  Maybe it is nostalgia, but I have always just loved these things.

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends

I was just looking over some photos again of the upcoming Marvel Legends/Classics etc. over at Julius Marx's page at AFTimes.  For those of you still collecting Marvel, which of the figures/waves are you looking forward to the most?  Are you planning on buying all of them, or just a few?  I have read now that the Iceman figure was just a mock-up, so hopefully there will be some improvements made to it, he was always one of my favorite X-Men, and it would be nice to put him with the rest of the team.  Otherwise, so many of the figures look great...but if there are any that I buy, it would probably be Juggernaut, Iceman, Storm, Phoenix, and possibly Brown Wolvie and Apocalypse.  The regular release Doc Ock is kind of tempting too though, looks pretty well done to me.

Further out, some of the others mentioned above that I am really looking forward to as well.  First among those is Spiderman 2.  I never actually got a chance to see the first one in the theatres (one of very few, I know), although we own the DVD now.  Spidey 2 is even more exciting to me because Doc Ock was always my favorite Spidey villain.  We'll be sure to catch that one.  I'm also interested in seeing Anchorman, because of Will Ferrell, and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow looked somewhat interesting as well.  We haven't ever actually seen any of the Harry Potter movies at all, so I guess I don't know that much about them.  I've always been curious to rent one to see what they were like.

Cartoon Network has a contest up where the grand prize is a chance to be a Star Wars Toy Designer for a day at Hasbro.  You can read more about it here:

Other Collectibles / Re: Star Wars Miniatures

I've been thinking about collecting these Matt, I guess it depends how hard it is to buy them (where they are available).  If they are going to be next to impossible, I might have to hold off.  Its been hard enough finding regular Saga figures lately :P.  I'll wait and see once they get closer to release, but the Original Trilogy set is appealing to me at least.  I have no desire to actually use them for the "game", probably just for a nice little "mini" collection :)  They do look pretty nice.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Ultra Ewok!

Cool, thanks for posting this Nakatu.  I'm happy to see another Ewok make it into the line, and it doesn't look too bad overall, hopefully we can all find it.

Oops, sorry Scott, I should have looked further bad.

Other Collectibles / New Star Wars Miniatures (WOTC Game)
« on: March 17, 2004, 10:26 AM »
What do you guys think of these upcoming Star Wars miniatures, apparently for a future Wizards of the Coast game.  I've never been much for the card/role playing, etc. games, but the miniatures look kind of cool in a way.  You can check out some preview pictures (courtesy of Gaming right here:

Star Wars Gaming Miniatures

GalacticHunter (as well as some of the presentation slides in these pictures) are reporting that some miniatures might be included with Hasbro figures as well.  All I need is to collect something else :P, but they do look kind of spiffy.  Sounds like there will be 60 Original Trilogy-based figures in the first wave, with a 60 figure Prequel-themed wave later in the year.
