Original Trilogy Collection / New York - Toy Fair 2004
« on: February 4, 2004, 10:50 AM »
With the NY Toy Fair 04' coming up in one week, i bet we are all very excited to see what is coming up for 2004, with Star Wars & LOTR.  I know i am really hyped up and ready to see those pics. But what do you all think is going to be shown? What figures do you think we will see any new, or suprises? Tell me what you think.

Watto's Junk Yard / Anyone Know where i can get Pegboard!
« on: December 15, 2003, 01:59 PM »
I was thinking about starting my own little business selling Star Wars, Lord of the Rings etc... toys and was wondering if anyone knows where i can buy some PEGBOARD. I really need it.  If anyone knows it would be very nice, thanks!

 I was wondering if any of you were going to go to the Star Wars Celebration 3, i think that since it is the last Star Wars celebration for the last and final movie, i think that Jedi Defender should go to the celebration, yup. We should all go and meet each other, do some trades, etc............ If you all think it's a good idea we should do it.  I think that would be pretty tight, we all dress up as different SW characters?  That would be cool.  What do you think? ;)

Saga '02-'04 / Jedi Warriors 4-Pack
« on: November 21, 2003, 11:04 AM »
I really do not like this, it is re-packs of all the figures i think it sucks and will not be buying, but the figures look pretty sweet in there.

Next up for the Toy's 'R' Us multipack series, we get our first look at the Jedi Warriors 4-pack. Consisting of four previously released figures; Nikto Jedi (repaint), Obi-Wan Coruscant Chase, Saesee Tiin (POTJ), and Plo Koon Arena Battle, the set also offers the Geonosian detention device originally slated to go with the Arena Playset. Sporting the new package design, it appears this set is ready for its late 2003/ early 2004 release!

You can see a picture of the set at :-X

I got this from Rebelscum today, and sounds pretty sweet, i really wish it would happen but it is something to question? Read it over and tell me what you think about it:

Classic Trilogy Ultimate Edition In The Works

It has been reported all over the web and on this website for months, though now there's a resurgence in the rumors that an eventual and final release of the Classic Trilogy is coming. Where these rumors are coming from now is a person emailing a list of changes to websites and telling them work is being done. And while we can defintiely confirm that ILM is working on the movies for plenty of enhancements, the list may or may not be accurate. Here's the run down of possible and very rumored changes:

Episode IV: A New Hope

1. The Imperial March has been added to Darth Vader's first appearance on Princess Leia's ship.

2. When Obi-Wan is talking to Luke about his father Anakin's Theme plays in the background and then it turns into the Imperial March as he talks about Vader.

3. The lightsaber effects have been redone and the frame jumps of lightsabers being turned on has been removed.

4. There's a new scene which has been shot during the filming of Episode III in which the Emperor dissolves the Senate.

5. In the Cantina, the Duros (green aliens guys) have been replaced with Neimoidians and some aliens from the prequels have been added.

6. The bleeding arm on the floor in the Cantina has been replaced with a non-bleeding arm because it's now canon that lightsabers cauterize wounds.

7. The original shooting scene between Han and Greedo has been restored.

8. Jabba the Hutt has been given a makeover and Han no longer steps on his tale.

9. In place of R2 wobbling down the stairs to the Falcon's hangar, a CG R2 navigating the stairs like he does in Attack of the Clones was added.

10. The white boxes around space ships have been removed and new CG shots have been added.

11. The scene of the Falcon being chased by the two Star Destroyers was modified. The Falcon now does spinning moves, avoiding the Star Destroyers' fire.

12. When the Death Star destroys Alderaan there's a new scene of Yoda's reaction to the disturbance in the Force that is created by all those deaths and then it cuts to Obi-Wan reacting to it as well.

13. The Dianoga has gotten a CG makeover and were are now able to see more of the creature.

14. The Death Star's paneling and computers have been slightly altered to show similar displays to those in the prequels.

15. The words "Tractor Beam" with Aurebesh lettering.

16. More stormtroopers have been added to the Death Star.

17. Temuera Morrison's voice is being recorded for use with all the stormtroopers.

18. The Obi-Wan/Vader duel has been spruced up. It is much more epic and there is much more movement. A modified version of Duel of the Fates is being considered for the scene.

19. The Death Star plans that are taken from R2 have been updated. When the Rebels are reviewing the Death Star plans they look similar to the plans we see in Attack of the Clones.

20. The Death Star battle is much more epic with more Tie Fighters and more Rebels being blown to bits. We get to see old Naboo starfighters being used by the Rebels.

21. There's a new scene (shot during Episode III) where Darth Vader goes to Coruscant and lands his ship in the same building Count Dooku does at the end of Attack of the Clones. Except now the building is all fixed up and it is now Palpatine's palace. He meets with Palpatine to ask for forgiveness for his failure and inform him of a new potential who is strong in the Force.

22. Chewbacca now gets a medal.

Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

1.The taun-tauns are now CG.

2. The battle of Hoth is much more epic. We see the Imperial ships land on Hoth and release AT-ATs. The AT-ATs have been sped up a bit. There's a ground battle between the Rebel soldiers and stormtroopers featuring new ships and vehicles.

3. Temuera Morrison's voice is being recorded for the older Boba Fett and all the stormtroopers.

4. The white boxes around space ships have been removed.

5. The slug monster is CG.

6. Ian McDiarmid has refilmed scenes as the Emperor. The conversations between Vader and Palpatine is now longer and features a few connections to the prequels.

7. Yoda's face is now animated in CG allowing more expression of emotions yet his movements remain the same. Also two deleted scenes featuring Yoda instructing Luke have been restored.

8. A new scene was shot in which the stormtroopers, after they capture Han, Leia and Chewie, bring Vader the box containing C-3PO in pieces. Vader orders the stormtroopers to bring the broken droid to Chewbacca's cell so that he can fix him.

9. The lightsaber effects have been redone in certain parts.

10. Luke's fall from Cloud City has been reshot against bluescreen using a stuntman.

Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

1. Jabba the Hutt is now a combination of the puppet and CG.

2. The Rancor is CG and looks disgusting as ever.

3. Yoda is CG. Yoda disappears leaving his clothes behind like Obi-Wan now.

4. The ewoks are now mostly CG and there are a lot more of them.

5. The plan is to insert the love theme Across the Stars when Luke is talking with Leia about their mother.

6. Temuera Morrison's like before is now the voice for Boba Fett and all the stormtroopers.

7. In the battle of Endor there are thousands of Ewoks and they are more vicious than there midgets-in-suits counterparts. More bite the dust now.

8. White boxes around ships removed.

9. The black blotches around Palpatine's face are gone.

10. Some of the lightsaber effects have been redone. The shadows that the lightsabers made on the floor are gone.

11. During Anakin's death scene it starts with a sad rendition of the Imperial March and slowly evolves into Anakin's Theme.

12. Sebastion Shaw who played Anakin when he was unmasked has been replaced with Hayden Christenson in make-up to make him look older. Anakin has much more dialogue. He apologizes for the destruction he caused, he thanks his son for turning him back to the light, he tells his son to rebuild the Jedi and he says he loves him and his sister. Just before he dies he says, "It is finished...".

13. We see more planets celebrating at the end of the movie. We see an aged Jar Jar, who is now the leader of the Gungans, on Naboo celebrating with the people of Naboo and the Gungans. We see an old Watto, who is now unable to fly, sitting in a hover chair cheering on Tatooine. During these scenes Across the Stars plays transitioning to the victory celebration music at the Ewok tree village.

14. Anakin's spirit is now played by Hayden Christenson with make-up to make him look his age. He looks on proudly at his son Luke with the spirit of Padme by his side.

Again, these are more of a wish list than accurate information. We also wanted to tell you something perhaps even more significant. Episode I: The Phantom Menace is getting a full overhaul as well. We'll leave you with that for now.

A little "fishy" weird list, but i kinda like it, i hope it is true.
