I'll bet the conversation that the Hasbro rep had with his superiors wasn't pleasant though....

Watto's Junk Yard / JD observation

I've been monitoring the touchy situation in the Why there are no pictures of Bly thread and it finally hit me what is familliar about the atmosphere of this sight. JD is college compared to all the other sights being High school.

Think about it. I don't know about you, but high school was kind of rough in that a lot of people were just immature and the teachers in general just didn't care. When college came around, everyone kind of bonded togeather and became more tollerant of others. I specifically remember the effort that people made to accept everyone without exception, and that's the feeling I get around here, an honest effort to make eachother as welcome as possible, even durring stressful situations.

I was just curious why you have no desire to get to know any of the locals out there, especially when they're having big get-togethers (10-15 people) every month now.

You've already answered your question, I'm a newbie around here

What does that mean? You're not alowed to associate with vets? I'm sure they'd be happy to have you.

I wonder what inspired the first version anyway?

We're back! The Launch was beautiful and the view from the main tank was just stunning!

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Advertising
« on: July 26, 2005, 10:33 AM »
I don't know about the whole advertising deal. I know they have run TV commercial adds for the modern line, but I don't know if it's even necsesary at all since they have a built in audience. I'd be curious to see how Hasbro would respond to this question, because they can't say the don't advertised because of a built in audience,  that would conradict their claim that the line is mainly purchased by kids.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Back-to-back X 3!

That's not a bad idea. LOTR had good success when they did their marathon back when ROTK was released and they know SW fans would line up for it.

I agree. Excellent work Muftak!

You blended the scuplty in perfectly. Looks awsome!

Episode 1 / Re: How many episode 1 figs do you have?

I have a compele set of every figure, including the Qui-Gon that came with the Eopie, the FAO Swartz Darth Maul Speeder game and lots of battledriods. In addition, I have a complete carded set of the basic figures.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: "Evolutions" assortment...
« on: July 25, 2005, 10:36 AM »
Isn't it funny Muftak how luke got darker through the classic trilogy as it went on ..LOL I mean think about it
He was a baby=really white

then he was a young buck(NH)=white with yellow and brown
then he was grey(ESB)= getting darker

finally he was ..Black?= like a sith

shoot he was even choking Gam. guards like vader

A 4 pack..! wow! Why did lucas change the jedi apparrel so that they were all wearing light or warm brown robes? even obi-won had a dark robe in (NH)?

Great observation and excellent evolutions pack idea! It would be perfect. The Jedi Luke could come with interchangeable hand, cloak and vest for Tatooine scenes and poncho and Helmet for endor scenes. It could rock!

I hope Barada's sorta new...   :-\

I was hoping so too. It sounds like he may be repainted, but that could mean just a new wash. I'd like to see him with the Luke skiff colored pants, but upon closer inspection, I noticed that that Barada in the film also has an additional shirt so I'm afraid we'd need a new scuplt to get an accurate Barada on the Luke skiff. :(

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Lightspeed tunnels?!
« on: July 25, 2005, 01:01 AM »
I thought I remembered reading somewhere that Lucas wanted to leave the lightspeed tunnels as an "OT only" type of thing.  I might have just imagined that, but I thought I read something awhile back that Lucas said you wouldn't see them in the prequels because of that.

Right you are!  I remember that blurb quite distinctly.  Lucas said at some point around the release of ATTACK OF THE CLONES that he didn't want to reveal the lightspeed look until the Original Trilogy.  Hence, we didn't see it in Episodes I - III.

Bummer. It would have helped to give the saga a consistant feel.
