Clone Wars '03-'05 / 2003 Clone Wars Republic Gunship
« on: January 18, 2003, 10:20 PM »
A new "Clone Wars" Gunship is coming out sometime this year, and there's rumors that it will have more fire-power to it... I am happy with my Gunship, but I would love if the following changes/etc were made...

+ Cabin Size +
I HATE how small the cabin size is. I can barely fit my Clone Pilot in the cabin. Hopefully Hasbro will widen the holes a little bit.

+ Turrets +
I HATE the ball-turrets that come with the Clone Pilot. I'd like to see some turrets like what are on the Gunships wing, that is, clear with electronics and wires visible on the inside. I've seen some nice customs of a Clone in turret, but I doubt Hasbro would make a large turret as a pack-in.

+ Pack-In Clones +
I'm pretty sure the "Clone Wars" Gunship will come with 2 re-hased Clone Pilots along with their turrets... No changes to the figures or the turrets, of course.
What'd I'd like to see packed in is...

2 Clone Pilots (rehash)
2 turrets similar to wing turrets
1 Speeder Bike (rehash)
1 Clone Scout

How about you guys who are interested? What do you wanna see?

Watto's Junk Yard / I need some help on my Physics... Please.
« on: January 11, 2003, 03:05 PM »
Let me make it clear that I'm a moron in math, and thus, I'm also a moron in Physics at this point. I just bombed a quiz on converting Base units... so I really want some help. Please help me out, but if you dont know, dont act like you do. Thanks in advance.

Example -
C3PO weighs 200 ibs, convert his weight to metric kilograms.

1 kg = 2.2 ibs, so it's 2.2 ibs divided by 200 ibs, which equals 90.9, so C3PO weighs 90.9 kilograms?

Example -
Blue Snaggletooth stands 3 ft. tall, convert his height to millimeters.

1 ft. = 12 inches, so 12 times 3 (ft) is 36. So Blue Snaggletooth is 36 inches. 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters, so 2.54 centimeters multiplied by 36 inches is 91.44 centimeters. Slide the decimal to the right to convert centimeters to millimeters, making Blue Snaggletooth 914.4 millimeters tall?

Example -
A squad of Dewbacks patrol a 12 mile perimeter, convert the miles to kilometers.

1 mi. = 1.6 km, so 1.6 km multiplied by 12 mi is 19.2 km. The dewbacks patrolled 19.2 km?

Please let me know if I'm correct, if not, please correct me and explain. Thanks a lot.

Toy Reviews / Jango Fett (Pilot)

AE's Reviews: Jango Fett (Slave 1)
Pro's -
Perfect likeness, Head sculpt is best I've ever seen.
Jet-pack isn't removable. Action feature has completely ruined the figure beyond decency.


Movie Accuracy : 9/10
This is the best looking figure in a long time. Perfect head-sculpt, decent kick-ass pose but not an over-done action-pose. This guy looks great on your desktop. The only cons is the jetpack is not accurate (as it is a button).

Articulation : 2/10
There's 8 points total, but because of the P.O.S action feature, only 6 of the 8 are workable points (the "action" feature completely ruins the arms). The elbows are decently posed so that they can be articulated at different positions and look nice, and legs are actually decently straight instead of skewed out at a stupid angle. This figure should have been perfect, but the Hasbro morons put this "arm slinging" action feature in and completely F'D up the figure. I'll make this very clear, his shoulder joints are as limp as your vintage C3PO's... His shoulder joints cannot be moved without pressing the jet-pack button, in which case the arms jump up into a firing position. P.O.S, you cannot pose beyond moving his elbows and head.

Pose-ablility : 2/10
What a disgrace... This action feature really did ruin this figure. This figure could have EASILY been in my top 5 Saga list. You cant pose his arms because of his shoulders.

Customizer's Factor :
Salvage this thing as much as you can... if you can figure out how to take the Kamino Escape arms and torso, and keep the Pilot legs, arms, and head, you'll have a perfect figure. AKA- if you think you can fix the action feature and make the arms work, you've got a perfect figure.

Last word :
I'm so disapointed with this figure because I see how great it could have been were it not for the P.O.S action feature. Hasbro should re-release this figure w/o a action feature so I buy it and return this... travesty.

Watto's Junk Yard / Favorite Actors?
« on: January 3, 2003, 11:56 AM »
Who are your favorite actors? And why?
Mine would be:

Marlon Brando -
Godfather was a great movie, and it couldnt have been without him because he was 'the godfather' without a doubt. Just perfect acting all around in my opinion. I'm a big fan of gangster movies, and so that puts him on my Best Actors list automatically. To cement him on my list was Apocalypse Now. Now A.N. has its fans and haters, but I found it to be both extremelly great and extremelly confusing at the same time. Regardless of how the movie was, Brando did a really good job as the "insane but brilliant" Col. Wurtz, the way he read his lines was, at times, so good that I didn't even think about the confusing parts of the movie that bugged me most of the movie, I just listened. Like Hoper said, 'You dont talk to the Colonel, you listen.'

Harrison Ford -
In my opinion he is the best actor living, at least tied up with Brando. He was perfect in Star Wars 4 through 6, Indiania Jones 1 through 3, and all kinds of other movies from President, Patriot, Blade Runner (I didnt like Blade Runner that much) and his best movie besides Indiana and SW's, the Fugitive. The thing about Ford that I admire is that he is a nice person who (at least apparently) cares about other people. He signs autographs (if you got a Brando autograph its fake), and he flies a helicopter around saving stranded people... Now how cool is that? Oh yea, on a side note, Harrison Ford was in Apocalypse Now with Marlon Brando, and his name was "Lucas", you do the math. :)

George C. Scott -
I've liked his performance in every movie he's done, at least the ones I've seen. I didn't like the movie where he's the grandpa of the fat kid, but he did pretty good in such a lame movie. He did real good in 12 Angry Men, which I really liked, and his big one is easily Patton, where he basically made me believe that he was Patton... period. Unfortunately he passed away, but I'm still a big fan of his because older movies are better than these newer ones anyway.

Plz share with me your favorite actors and why so I dont have a big post with 0 replies, I post rarely enough already, lol.

Saga '02-'04 / Have you found...
« on: January 1, 2003, 12:36 PM »
Okay, distribution down here must be dead-locked... I'm wondering if anyone else has had better luck...

Have you found =

Clone Pilot
Jango Pilot
Cantina Guy - K'ti'kc
Cantina Guy - Dr. Evazen
Ephant Mon
Clone Trooper w/ Bike
Endor Head Variant

I've found none of them w/ exception of the Clone Pilot, and there was only one and I guess we all need 2 of them to complete a Gunship.

Toy Reviews / Clone Pilot Review
« on: December 30, 2002, 12:33 AM »
I finally found one! Now I need one more!

Appearance -
Looks good, real good. I am sorta uncertain about the stance the pilot is in, but he's casual enough that he isnt annoying... It could be worse! I'm uncertain of the accuracy of the lil box on the chest, as its imposible to see in the movie, but I like it.


Articluation -
8 points, while not bad, Hasbro really blew a chance to articulate a figure. No knee and wrist articulation? Why not? Sometimes I just don't understand Hasbro... He's a pilot, articulate the knees! Ball-joint head is perfect, fabulous. Nice elbow articulation like on Red Clone.


Pose-ability -
Pretty limited w/o wrist articulation... no grade.

Accessory -
I'd have paid another $5 for a ball-turret... this off-color ball thing is crap, plain and simple... Pistol is cool though.


Overall -
I like the figure a lot, I grade very mean, but that's because I know Hasbro can do better... Let down - No wrist articulation. Good thing- Looks good and isnt in a stupid action pose.

The Original Trilogy / Unmolested Original Trilogy on DVD
« on: December 10, 2002, 07:25 AM »
I've really been thinking about getting the "unofficial" non-Special Edition Original Trilogy DVD's lately... but several things are preventing me from just saying "what the hay" and buying them. If any of you own these "unofficial" DVD's, as I'm sure some of you do, could you sorta review them for me? I know RS has a huge thread about the "unofficial" DVDs, but it's about 4 billion pages long and most of it is people like me asking the same questions over and over... So, I'll ask some FAQ's about these "unofficial" DVDs and hope someone can help me out...

1) I've heard lots of complaints that the DVD's sound is not in-sync with the picture. Do you have this problem? Is the sound quality good or bad?

2) Describe the picture quality on the films, is it fuzzy or is it really nice looking like an official DVD would be, somewhere in between?

3) Will the DVD work on all of your DVD players? Will it work on your PS2?

4) Okay, be honest, after seeing the DVD's, are you glad bought them? Do you think they were worth the asking price (whatever price you paid)?

5) Anybody wanna sell their DVDs to me?  :D

Saga '02-'04 / I want a new C3PO, am I crazy?
« on: December 10, 2002, 07:04 AM »
I've been thinking about this for a while, but I really would like a C3PO with reasonable articulation and correct coloring. The elbows could be articulated and judging by the few PERFECT Saga figures we have (Bespin Luke, Chewbacca), the elbows could even have that pipe-bracket-thingy to make it accurate. The wrists and knees should be articulated, and of course his waist should be also. That's be neat if he had a rubber waist-line with wires painted on it to simulate his waist wiring. Maybe I've forgotten, but I have yet to see a C3PO figure with a silver leg, too.

I dunno, I just want the "ULTIMATE" C3PO figure, it just seems to me like figures are slowly improving, and yet C3PO is practically the same mold from '92(?).

Saga '02-'04 / Top 5: EU Figures you want made?
« on: November 26, 2002, 06:38 PM »
For you EU fans, who are the top 5 EU characters you'd like to see made...

5. Tycho Chelchu

4. Twi'Lek Rogue Squadron Member

3. Stormtrooper X
I don't know anything about this guy, but he looks darn-right cool.

2. Admiral Pellaeon
He's my favorite Imperial Officer because, well, he stayed alive the longest. Could always use another Officer.

1. Baron Soontir Fel
The greatest Imperial Ace only second to Vader himself, who wouldn't want a removable helmet TIE pilot?

The Wookiee Arcade / My thoughts on (PS2) Bounty Hunter
« on: November 26, 2002, 06:32 PM »
Okay, I'll make this quick-

Graphics- Very sweet looking during the movie shots, and also very nice during gameplay. The most impressive thing would have to be the overall terrain that you'll go through. Some of the maps are just pure art.

Sound- The only thing a LucasArts game is really gauraunteed to have is good sound. This game has awesome sound effects. There's really nothing missing here at all. I love how the voices are done by the actors/actresses who played the roles in the movie. The most impressive thing for me was hearing the Carbonite moan noise on one lap. It really brought the whole map together as far as environment goes.

Soundtrack- Okay, let me 'mark out' here by saying this... This is the best soundtrack on a videogame I've ever heard. It's got clips of every Star Wars movie to date, from what I have heard. It's got a few ESB Cloud City tunes, the Bounty Hunter tune from AOTC, several tunes from Jabba's Palace and related from ROTJ, and I think, not sure, but the Droid Army tune from TPM. I also believe there is a Cantina tune thrown in there at one point. This is the best part of the game.

Gameplay- Whew... okay... It's sorta fun to play, until you get to... maybe the 4th mission. The game just relies so much on the jet-pack and jumping and all this crap that you end up feeling more like spider-man than Jango. I was very disapointed with the gameplay. There is no difficulty setting, and you are only given 5 continues once you die, and because these maps are so large and enemy filled, you will need every continue to beat the map. It's very annoying to get "close" to finishing the map then to die for the last time and have to go all the way back and re-do the map. VERY LAME. This is also a Button-tapper shooter game, aka, there is no stealth or skill involved in killing someone... Just tap really fast and jump a lot.

Overall- I was really disapointed by the game... I'd buy the soundtrack in a second though.

The Original Trilogy / Ewok Adventures on DVD?
« on: November 17, 2002, 12:04 PM »
Me being an Ewok fan, how could I not be Angry (pun intended) that there has yet to be a DVD release of the Ewok Movies, or the Ewok (and Droids) cartoon series?! Do you guys think Lucas plans to put these out on DVD? I certainly hope so, and soon.

I must admit, my mom and I have been collecting these Star Wars ornaments ever since the Darth Vader came out... I think we've got every ornament made so far except for the original Luke...
Does anyone else collect these?

If so, what's your favorite ornament?

My favorite would have to be the Darth Vader, he speaks a line and the floorpanel below him is lit... Very cool.
