The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Strike Foils....
« on: April 17, 2006, 02:42 AM »
I forgot to add, of course the ARC-170 is supposed to be percieved as the predecessor to the T-65 X-Wing Fighter, and was manufactured in a partnership with Incom who later built the X-Wing, but that still doesn't explain the function of the Strike Foils on the ARC-170.

Ponder away!


The Prequel Trilogy / Strike Foils....
« on: April 17, 2006, 02:20 AM »
It's obvious what locking the the Strike Foils on B-Wing and X-Wing Fighters in attack position is for, but what purpose do they serve on the ARC-170?  There are no cannons or solar collectors on them, and with such huge primary foils, I see no advantage or need for having them.

Any ideas?

**Yes I know it's fiction, but this is just fanspeak and thought I'd see if anyone had some "real-world" ideas.**

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Anyone else think we'll see more pods?

That would be a heck of an undertaking!  But yeah, I agree that HasBLO will find a way to use the pod again.

Heh, yeah, wouldn't that be nice?


I imagine they don't have different "voices" than the RC R2? 

Yeah, the in-package appeal is good on this.  Don't have one yet, but it's worth adding methinks.

Well maybe all is not lost.  I found an electronic POTF2 AT-AT that needs a new "chin gun" and "ear gun".  Hopefully the new AT-AT won't have green and brown poodoo paint on those parts and I can request them from HasBLO.

Exactly my point.  Sure, this AT-AT will only be at TRU, and we all know the "if an item is an exclusive, it effects the production numbers and is more costly, so that cost is passed to us" story.  But, that still does not forgive the fact that this thing is going to be bare-bones and have no pack-ins.  Gone are the days for a lot of us that a pretty window box secures a sale, especially when something has been made cheaper and priced higher.

HasBLO =  :(

I hate to say it, but this AT-AT will indeed be stripped of electronics, and will have no pack-in figures.  It's selling point will most likely be the window-box packaging.  Total rip-off.  I'm in a bit of a predicament though, so I'm not sure what to do yet.  I used to have a vintage, and 3 POTF2 AT-AT's, but they were all stolen.  All I have now is an Action Fleet (the crappy Saga one with no figures), and the WOTC 12" version.  I want to have big AT-AT's again, but that price, and having green and brown paint smudges....  I just dunno.  I wish they woulda just re-released the POTF2 version.  What to do?

I'm also glad that Sideshow got Luke's height correct.  This line is gonna kick some major afterburner.  They will look so cool all standing together.

LMAO!   :D

I think the Luke is astounding.  Without a doubt the best likeness of him I own.

Toy Reviews / Re: New JD Review - TSC Bib Fortuna

This figure is just as much useless CRAP as its predecessors.  WHY does Hasbro refuse to put the CORRECT accessory with this character?  Kenner did it right back in the day, what's so difficult about a damn STAFF?  Why a blaster, and now a pink head with a dagger?  Gimme a break.  I have not bought ONE TSC figure yet, and I am not losing any sleep over it.

In my vintage collection, I have 3 Stormtroopers.  One has been on a Dewback a little too long and got yellowed from the Tatooine suns, but he's complete.   :)

As for my "modern" collection, I have a LOT of those inaccurate fellas.
