Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Official Space Exploration Thread
« on: July 31, 2005, 12:17 PM »
Nice stuf Dale, Thanks.

The thing about Columbia that made me stop and think was is the fact that foam has been comming off durring evey lift off and that was the first time that it caused significant damage. It made realize that evey launch was a craps shoot, kind of a scary thought (beyond the million technical things that could go wrong.) I certainly hope they can figure it out, but perhapse this will push them toward a new launch vehicle.

Actually, the original foam they used on the tanks did not break off as much.  But NASA engineers decided to change the foam sometime in the 90's to make it more "environmentally friendly" That's when the orbiters were sustaining damage due to foam breaking off of the tank.

Wow! I didn't know that and that's actually pretty interesting.

I really wish he'd come with and extra left hand in the "v" pointing postition he used before fighting GG.  That would have made this figure the best ever.



That would have been cool. ;D

Without getting ito great detail, I'm in the same boat as a lot of you guys. 10 years worth of plastic adds up. I'm actuall starting to reach the limit, so even I'm interessted to see how it turns out.

I'm really happy with it too. I just picked one up and have to say it's the best Obi-Wan released IMO.

Sounds like the three packs are starting to show up again. I hope we all get the ones we still need.

Somehow, I'm guessing that they only disabbled the stock check feature for toys.

we had it confirmed through mike at rebelscum that the next VOTC figs will be on those crappy POTF COIN cards from 1985. YUCK! BOYCOTT HASBRO!!!!
HASBRO = HAS-BROKE!!!!

With respect, this is the wrong thread for this discussion and about unleashed which has been canceled.

I finally finished. I have to say that I liked Order of the Pheonix more, but this one still has a brillient level of quality.

Out of all the books though, this one has me waiting for the next one the most. I can't wait and it's bummer that it's at least two years away.



SPOILER-



I am dissapointed that she took Snape to the bad side. He was my favorate character because I'm intregued by conflicted characters like his and for him to be playing the good side the whole time seems a little cheep (although it was logically thought out.) My wife and I talked about this and she seems to think that there can still be a chance Snape was following Dumbledor's orders, but I'm not so optimistic.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: How big is your army?
« on: July 28, 2005, 11:04 AM »
Nice army there Vator. When are we going to see an update?

8053
So then these "lava" figures are going to be similar to the Walmart Qui-Gon and Darth Maul hologram figures that stuck around for months at 9.99 and eventually I got them for $2.  I have five of those Mauls in my holographic army  ;D


LOL, I wish.

Nice set to keep carded. I'll have no interest in opening them.

8054
Im kinda hoping this is a mock up pic. Like they initially did with the Wedge figure. New sculpts of 4-Lom and Zuckuss and an ESB deco VOTC Fett would seal the deal for me.

If they're going to due new sculpts, I'd rather see them on cards...
