Check it out!

The throne environment will be sold separately, but looks pretty cool.  I'm expecting it to look very similar the Thrawn's command chair.

Pre-order is Friday 18 December.

Grand Admiral Thrawn 12" Figure!

I might just have to buy this.  I have every other Grand Admiral Thrawn figure....easy focus collection!

The Original Trilogy / Deleted Return of the Jedi Scenes
« on: July 19, 2009, 05:43 PM »
I went looking for the sandstorm scene which they made action figures for, but I don't think I've ever seen the entire scene.  I know it's out there, but it's not on Youtube....unless I missed it.

Does anyone know where on the internet this scene is?

Watto's Junk Yard / Warriors

This is sort of a shameless plug for a show on the History Channel, but it's actually really good!

I don't know if any of you have seen this show before, but this Green Beret, Terry Schappert goes to various historical spots and talks about famous battle, famous warriors throughout history.  So far he's covered the Mayans, the Vikings, the Samurai, the Germanian barbarians' victory over the Roman Empire, the British Knights and chivalry.  All with a pretty unique viewpoint.

The cool part is when Terry is not doing this show or out doing whatever his unit does, he's my brother's neighbor up in NY.  I met him briefly this past Christmas, before the show aired, and I can tell you that he's not acting at all in the show.  Real nice guy.

Check it out here.

Wide Shots:

Close Ups of the shelves.  They are either a major ground battle or Imperial ships (with scattered figures):

Carded Figures that I display:

Not sure if mixing vintage and modern is the best idea, but I like this display on top of my vintage cabinet:

Queen's Starship.  I have pilots in every vehicle:

Still have the cube cabinet for medium sized ships and random figures on top:

The corner display:

My NASCAR, Jabba's Palace, Complete Galaxy, M&M's and 25th Anniversary & Disney:

My desk credenza.  Features my MR Mini Sabers, Celebration Passes, Potato Heads and Assorted figures:

My ever faithful trashcan:

The center table where I have my Rebel Hangar, Jedi Figures, Sith Figures, Assorted Aliens, Politicians, Medical Scenes, Pod Racers and Mini Rigs:

Closet, where I display my Sideshow, Marmit, RAH 1/6 Scale figures, MR Sabers and Costume items and plush figures:

Just outside the closet, Slave 1s, US Stamps (Framed) and my Jedi Academy pennant:

Across from the Closet, I have my movie posters...with room for a few more:

Jocasta's Reading Room / Fate of the Jedi

The next chapter of EU is about to begin.  Looks like there will be a serious Anti-Jedi backlash after the fall of Darth Caedus.

Book 1 due out 24 March

Book 2 due out 23 June

Book 3 due out 25 August

I'm looking forward to reading these since the Legacy of the Force series ended so quickly.

Vintage Kenner / Restoring Playsets and Vehicles
« on: December 25, 2008, 09:59 PM »
Hey Y'all,

I'm in the process of shipping out all my old vintage playsets and vehicles but after 20+ years in my parents' basement I've noticed a few problems:

-lots of dust in the corners and grooves
-the foam on the Dagobah and the Trash Compactor from the Death Star playsets have really deteriorated.
-The cardboard pieces of the Death Star walls are really frayed at the edges and would probably need replacing.

Anyone know of a cheap way I could replace the foam and cardboard cheaply?  I'd also like to print out hi res images instead of purchasing anything.  Also, what's a good cleaning technique?

Watto's Junk Yard / The Stargate Thread

I'm looking forward to the new Season of Atlantis tonight.  Also, it's been kind of fun revisiting all the episodes of SG-1 with my wife.  I got her into Atlantis, and now that we have some time, we've been watching all my SG-1 DVDs.

Just to add a little geeky trivia, we can see Cheyenne Mountain from our deck.   :D

Vintage Kenner / A good, Complete Vintage database
« on: July 6, 2008, 10:21 PM »
I was trying to find some good pictures of some vintage playsets and was having trouble remembering some of the really good vintage database sites out there. has a lot of good information, but it isn't complete (no good minirig pics etc).

What others am I forgetting?

*edit*I remembered toysrgus, but they moved here.

The Lucas legal bureau is at it again.

I'm not 100% convinced that Team Lucas will win out this time.

Power of the Jedi / Dejarik Chewie question
« on: March 18, 2008, 08:18 PM »
As I set up my collection room, I'm setting up ships and putting pilots in them and such...with larger ships like the Falcon, I'm setting figures up inside like mini-dioramas.  My question is will the Dejarik Chewbacca fit in the place of the Dejarik board inside the Falcon?

The Wookiee Arcade / The KOTOR II information thread
« on: December 10, 2007, 04:23 PM »
I thought I would actually make a separate thread for this topic because it really doesn't;t fit with the announcement thread.  I've been playing this game again since I got a version for my X-box 360 and have been focusing on completing all aspects of the game.  I know this will take several tries since there are different possibilities wether your character is male of female or if you choose to be a light or dark Jedi.  A bit of a spoiler warning for those of you who have not played the game....but since it's been out for about 3 years now I think most everyone who has the game has played it.  Feel free to contribute with anything you have found out about the game, especially on how to change your party members into Jedi.  So far I've only been able to make two of them Jedi and I'll post exactly how I did it here.

Characters that cannot be made into Jedi:

-G0T0, HK-47, T3M4, Hanharr and Mandalore

Although I'm not surprised by the droids or Mandalore, I was a bit surprised by Hanharr since if you are a light-sider, Mira apparently can, although I have not been able to make her one as of yet.

Also, you obviously cannot make Visas Marr or Kreia Jedi because they already are.

Characters you can train as Jedi:

Atton Rand - To get him to be a Jedi, I had to obviously gain influence with him, but also talk to him after Kreia teaches you to hear the thoughts of everyone on the Ebon Hawk.  If you get him to talk about his past (after you talk to the Twileks in the refugee section on Nar Shaddaa this seems to be unlocked) and he talks about the Jedi that sacrificed herself to protect the knowledge that he is force sensitive, you unlock his Jedi ability.  This is handy to have done before you meet with Visquis on Nar Shaddaa he has to fight the Twin Suns alone and some force powers can come in handy in that fight.

Handmaiden/Brianna - This was actually the first of the party I was able to make into a Jedi.  The trick is to get her to train you in all of her fighting moves, There are three sparring matches you can have on the Ebon Hawk with her.  After that, you need to get her to talk about her Mother.  I was able to do that after I talked to Kreia when I had finished the sparring matches with Handmaiden and she brought up who her mother was.

Mira - Although I have not been able to train her as a Jedi as of yet, I think I have gotten close by gaining influence with her and getting her to talk about being among the Mandalorians and losing her family at Malachor V.  If anyone has been able to make her a Jedi, I would appreciate some pointers.

Bao-Dur - Another character I have not yet been able to train as a Jedi, and I'm not so sure how to, since I cannot get him to talk much after I get back to the Ebon Hawk after leaving Telos.  I also have not brought him on many missions after Telos since I've been concentrating on other characters for now.

Disciple - I have never played the game as a female, so I have never had him in my party.

I hope to add to this as time goes by.  I would also appreciate help from others who may have taken different paths than I have in this game.

Although a great shortstop in the 40's and 50's, I will always remember him from announcing every Yankee Game I watched on television growing up.  He was they play by play announcer for 40 years and arguably the most famous announcer in sports!

So long Scooter....and thanks for the memories.
