Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS - #57 and beyond

The clone pilot reminds me of the fire pilots who flew beside Grievous' ship in the atmosphere before it crashed.

I don't have access to any of those images, so I can't be too sure.

Here are some photos of the fire fighters from the official site's databank.



I have a question. Why go through the trouble of giving this character a backpack and weapon/extigisher for a Photo? I'm sure all that was ever planned for this character was cockpit shots.

So far I've heard very little from the RS Staff. When the forum goes down, I would assume everyone works like the Dickens to get things back up an running. How long should it take to figure out what happened to our files?

Collect All 92! / Final Vintage Predictions

It seems we get a few more never before re-done sculpts based on vintage figures every year. The last one was the Cloud Car Pilot. Who do you think will get the ugrade they've been longing for?

I think it's a strong possibility we'll get Derlin AKA Rebel Commander in the hoth set and at least one new Ewok in the Endor set.

Too bad Klattu from Jabba's palace is already out of the running. :(

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Battle of Endor Wave

Lot's of possibilities here. Yeah, a new Luke, Leia and Han would rock, but I'd really want to see a new scouttrooper (SA) and an ewok or two.

Is there a prize for correctly guessing the assortment?

Seriously, this is the set that I'm most excited about and ironically it's at least a year a away. :-[

GNT was not effected. :P

So far, the loss count is only three, but other anomolies are have occured. For example, one guys has the date stamp of August 8th on all posts. Others can't post pictures or create post links. Perhaps there are larger issues. :-\

Interesting. Those guys who also got thier existance deleted we're posting the same time as me when the server crashed.

GNT was posting as well. Wouldn't that be funny if he was wiped too. :P

BTW, thanks to KBZ and Tydirium for getting back to me last night regarding this. ;)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Why there are no more pictures of Bly
« on: July 17, 2005, 03:17 PM »
If Hasbro has one ounce of professionalism to their process, the instant that a figure is painted and approved, someone would create a set of Orthorgraphics clearly labeling which color is to be applied to each portion of the figure from all relevant angles - probably noting RGB values as well as simple paint shade terms.  

You know, I just noticed this today, but something tells me that if Hasbro has a photo of Commander Bly in their Comic Con Q n A Presentation then I'm 100% positive that they've already got other photography of the figure to use if they have to go through a re-approval process or something lame like that.

Jeff

I'm not going to claim I know how exactly the process works for them, but based on my experience, I would think that there are stipulations built into the contract that say figures must be approved via physical inspection of a prototype (since color can never be 100% duplicated via photograph.) I have no doubt that they can whip another one up in precisly the same manner, but the problem is getting Lucasfilms approval. I could be that Lucasfilm is only obligated to approve figures one a month or once every two months, so they may have to wait for the next window to get approval because Lucasfilm is under no obligation to adjust thier scedule due to Hasbro's faults.

« on: July 17, 2005, 03:05 PM »
Regarding the Target clone 5-pack, I assume that the figures in the packaged sample are not the figures we're getting. It looks like the figures pictures on back are the actual figures right?

At least AP fessed up as to what happend with the R5 units. I mean, what would we rather have if a new mold was just not possible, no R5's or the POTF2 mold? I hate to say it, but under those conditions, I think they did the right thing. Otherwise we'd have another carded Wedge on our hands.
