Is anyone running against him?

I just finished the mission where Han and Chewie steal plans for large capital ships and you get Admiral Ackbar.  Shortly after, the entire galaxy opened up and the Imperial fleet started attacking my planets.  I think I'm about to lose Dantooine because I had no one there, other than the space station and a fleet just showed up.  I might have a little force building and planet retaking to do, but it should be fun!

Well, in an attempt to revive this thread, I'll throw one out there.

"Yes, I bet you have."

I'm still trodding along in single player, but I was curious if anyone has played in Multiplayer yet?  Just curious on how the game holds up.  I've actually never played any of my RTS games in multiplayer yet.

I received a gift certificate to Amazon as a birthday gift and used it on this set.  They just arrived the other day and I am very impressed!  I now have to find a place to put them and also room for the Complete Far Side set that is also available.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Re: Favorite/Worst 12" Figure

Out of the ones that I have, I would say the best are:

Marmit: Boba Fett

Medicom: Vader

Hasbro: Count Dooku and Ultimate Jango are tied for first.

I broke this down into different brands because it's tough to compare across brands.  I just didn't think it was fair.

For the worst:

ROTS Anakin/Vader.  That thing's a [iece of crap and has never been removed from the box.  I keep it becsause it was the only item I picked up at Midnight Madness.

I'm now working through the single player campaigns as the Rebel Alliance and I've found a few interesting tips:

1.  Stay away from the auto determine feature!  It does not taketactics into account at all.  I accidentally hit that once and lost a battle then later won another battle with a much smaller force.

2.  Don't worry about the next mission for one of your hero characters in the que.  My next mission is to get Capt Antilles all the way to the other side of the galaxy to stop some smuggler from talking, and instead of going there in a straight shot to solve it, I'm conquering all the planets on the way.  Apparently I don't have a set amount of time from keeping the smuggler from talking.

That's about it right now.  I've managed to create a sizeable force so far.  I have a bulk of it set up as an invasion force taking planets and a few smaller defensive forces to follow behind and protect planets along the border with the Empire.

Jesse, you'll love this game.  None of the resource gathering of battlegrounds, the graphics of Force Commander with a more intuitive interface.  A well done game!

Are they making them for all the LE's now that final editions have been announced?

I think hands down Newforce comics is the best online store to deal with.  They not only take care of the inventory like Jesse said, but they also have awesome communication with their customers and are very quick to answer questions!

If you're ordering figures by the case, they are the best!

I have the book, but have not been able to read it as of yet.  Probably next week.

After beating the game the first time, I tried to go through the game and just be evil.  I really had a hard time doing it because it's so out of character for myself!   :D

I'm going down to Best Buy today and will probably pick it up, but I'm not installing it until I get the final exam and project paper done for my class.  I'll be playing it next week.

Thanks for the info Ryan.

A friend of mine at work has the game and he says it has a lot of bugs in it?  Is it true or is my friend as computer illiterate as I think?

Nice work Kirk.  It's such a satysfying feeling to complete a collection of something, especially in an area that many people may not even collect.

I'd also like to know a little more about that "vintage" Maul.
