Saga Collection '06 / Long Term Storage Questions
« on: April 4, 2006, 09:47 AM »
I have officially run out of room with my carded collection and have decided that storage was the only option.  All figs are in Star Cases and will be put in oversize plastic tubs. Should I:

A) Keep them in the attic (knowing that heat/humidity could be a problem).

B) Keep them in a crawlspace underneath my stairs (knowing that dampness could be a problem)

Any suggestions?  Also, since this will be long term should I take any precautions in packing them differently or better?  Would putting them in two plastic tubs help the cause?

Saga Collection '06 / Colored Stormtroopers?
« on: March 29, 2006, 03:10 PM »
I was thinking about this when news of the Shadow Stormtrooper info surfaced. Hypothetically.  What if the OT was made during this day and age.  With marketing such a cash cow, would OT Stormtroopers come in 20 different flavors just like Clones of the PT?  The person who came up with the idea was a marketing genius.

Though it would never happen.  What if Lucas digitized different colors on the Stormtroopers in an upcoming release to tie the two eras together?  Wouldnt that be a real pisser for us collectors?

Saga Collection '06 / Army Building or Hoarding?
« on: March 23, 2006, 01:31 PM »
I dont know if anyone has noticed how much more difficult it has become to army build these days. Especially with Clones.  I have had to pay premium prices for the last few clones that were released and that was just to satisfy my one loose and one carded collecting needs.

My stomach turned this morning when I saw this pic over at that other site.  This is the reason I gave up 90% of army building.

Is this a bit much?  I know people will say if you have the money you can buy what you want but this IMO just ruins the hobby for people who may just collect a couple of figs.  Many of us would be glad to hand out cash to buy a couple figs but 90+  >:(  Come on folks lets leave a few on the pegs for the moderate collectors and kids.  BTW if anyone can find it in there (greedy) heart to let any of the new clones go for cost drop me an email.  Im sorry but to the folks out there who emailed me wanting $10 each for these figs you can blow me.

Saga Collection '06 / What figures do you display twice?
« on: February 23, 2006, 10:23 AM »
Not just the new SAGA but all figs to this point.  For example, I display the following:

Veers with AT-AT accessories and without

C-3PO with Droid accessories and without

OTC Dagobah Luke standing and handstand

Anakin Mustafar robed and with battle damage

Curious as to what everyone else does since some figures could technically be two figures.

Watto's Junk Yard / HDTV Projection TV Question
« on: February 22, 2006, 07:54 AM »
Okay, I am a newbie on the subject.  We are looking at buying something big screen for the home.  I saw a HDTV projection TV that I liked but forgot to ask a question to the salesman.  In the back with the inputs/outputs there is no input for coaxial cable.  There was however inputs for everything else.  Would this only be considered a monitor?  How would you go about hooking up?  What would be the options here? Both my Surround Sound system and my DVD recorder both have inputs for coaxial.  Could it be connected this way? We also have digital cable with an HDTV box being installed very soon.  Would this be how I hook up the set? 

TV-9D9 / Upcoming SW Live-Action TV Show Discussion!
« on: February 14, 2006, 03:19 PM »
Not sure where it was mentioned, but I thought  it might of been at Toyfair that the new series would be OT based.  So what will this be about?  All seperate short stories?  Vader, Boba Fett, Empire, Jabba's Palace, Cantina?  There are enough masked characters.   If it is one continuing story I think it may be limited.
