Saga '02-'04 / Re: What 2003 SAGA product are you still missing?
« on: June 19, 2003, 01:44 AM »
I'm missing Chewie Mynock Hunt, Yoda/Chian, Ashla/Jempa, Red Battle Droid, and the new Deluxe Obi-Wan and Jango.
I also lack the following Unleashed figures: Mace Windu, Vader Redux, Leia(really want this one), Luke, Sidious, Obi-Wan, and whatever else is coming out on those groovy new cards.

I hope I find all this stuff before the Clone Wars line debuts and takes up the meager space retail stores have for Star Wars.

I'll pick stuff up off the floor, but only if it's a line I collect. I also put figures that are sitting on top of vehicles back on the pegs as well. I'll try to put rarer figures on the front of the pegs or stash 'em for fellow collectors.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Wars toys are OUT!!!

Bring on those Clone packs!!

I've been jonesin' to go nuts buying SW figures this year. Hopefully the Clone Wars line will be given more shelf space than what Saga currently has now.

Maybe, if we all eat our vegetables and clean our rooms, Hasbro will be nice and have plenty of those 2003 figs everyone's been looking for right there with the Clone Wars toys.

Led Zeppelin
Metallica-before St. Anger, anyway.
Pearl Jam
Jimi Hendrix
Iron Maiden
Nerf Herder

I also dig some one-hit-wonder 80's bands, like Fine Young Cannibals and stuff you get on CDs when you subscribe to Entertainment Weekly.

I've noticed, if it's on a 2003 card, no matter what it is, it doesn't last long. R2 and Mace, supposed collector stinkers, disappear in 1-2 days, and it takes weeks before anything else remotely new arrives on pegs. What's the dillio? Are these not in distributor's warehouses or what? I find it hard to believe they get cases that infrequently and pegs sit empty most of the time, at least around here.

I found a blonde Imperial Officer at Target today, so maybe that's the place to be. I didn't find any Younglings or Yoda, or Red Battle Droid for that matter. Hopefully BBTS will stock them soon, cause I don't like buying cases.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Last CD You Bought

I also bought Hail to the Thief. Good stuff. An early favorite is 'There There.'

I really didn't play these games in the arcade, but on the SNES SSF II Turbo I always played as Sagat and won a ot. Yay.

On MK II for SNES, I used Kitana, because I could use those blade-fan thingies with lethah accuracy, plus I could only do her fatalities.

Power of the Force 2 / Re: Han Solo and Taun Taun 3 3/4"
« on: June 14, 2003, 03:53 PM »
I scored this pack, the Wampa, and the Death Star Escape Cinema Scene for $110 shipped. I don't feel it was a bad deal, because the Wampa and Tauntaun were going for $70 each on ebay at the time. Still a couple of my favorite pieces, although the Wampa could benefit from a cool resculpt, like soon.

Power of the Force 2 / Re: What's the figure you hate the most?
« on: June 14, 2003, 03:48 PM »
I vote for Lobot. I don't remember him breaking into a dance that would require the figure to be posed that way. I'm jonesin' for a resculpt, but since even main characters can't make it to retail these days, I doubt it'll happen.

Power of the Force 2 / Re: Favorite Ship
« on: June 14, 2003, 03:45 PM »
Tough question. I have two POTF2 AT-ATs, but that's not my overall favorite.

I think the Millenium Falcon is it, at least for today. I always wanted one of those and when I finally got one, it blew me away with how cool it was.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Post Episode III
« on: June 14, 2003, 03:38 PM »
Well seeing as how some WM don't carry figures in non movie years,whats gonna happen once EP.III is done?

Somebody else will pick up the slack, but only for awhile. Then George's big announcement about the third Trilogy will bring it back. *prays with passion this is true*

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Will you get the KBToys Imperial Shuttle?
« on: June 14, 2003, 03:36 PM »
As long as it shows at KB for $100 or (hopefully) less, I'm there. If it goes to $50, I'd get another to repaint, because I don't think the Empire would let the Emperor's ride get that dirty and unwaxed.

Ick. All the local (and even some far-away ones) all have that accursed Lott Dodd/Watto case with a few Anakin HD and 1st Dooku here and there. I don't even want to think how hard it'll be to get the Deluxe Obi-Wan and Jango, because retailers here by and large have given up on stocking them. I have the Spider Droid and Super Droid builder already.

Thanks for the welcomes!

I didn't look very hard for an Ewok avatar, but I don't think there's one there. Have to make or steal one, I guess. :)

Yes, I am Hasbro's Missing Integrity, but it didn't fit. So HMI will have to do.
Thanks for inviting me here, Spuffy!!!
