Star Wars Movies & TV shows / Making Episode III
« on: March 31, 2004, 08:03:09 PM »
Just saw the latest feature for Hyperspace members, which had a few cool things (mild spoilers, so rread at own risk)


In the intro, it showed a glimpse of some guard-like character that looked like a cross between Boba Fett and Darth Vader with a weird weapon.

Later, it showed the weapons used by General Grievous' guards, which are an energy staff that can fight against a lighsaber.  Overall, a pretty cool segment.

Star Wars Movies & TV shows / New Clone source in Episode III?
« on: March 12, 2004, 04:11:16 PM »
Just want to say right off, this is speculation based on something I saw on the official site, but if it is right, could be construed as a spoiler...

Now that you are warned...

I just saw a pic in the Hyperspace section of the official site that showed Kyle Rowling (Stunt double for Dooku) brandishing a Clone Trooper Rifle with the caption:

"Kyle Rowling (Dooku's sword double) brandishes a blaster rifle to play a clone trooper for one shocking scene"

Sounds interesting - maybe a new clone source?  Maybe Dooku himself?!

Wampa Cave / The Never ending story
« on: November 25, 2003, 08:00:44 PM »
Ever seen that movie?  Well, this post has nothing to do with it - just the title.  I think it would make a fitting title for a movie based on my star wars collecting habits.  I just did a rough count of my modern stuff.  I was originally strictly an open collector, until Episode II came out (so I have been a carded collector for about a year and a half).  I have no carded vintage yet (and there are close to 100 different ones, I think - I am not a variant collector!).  As for the modern figs, a rough count revealed I have about 190 different carded figs (with doubles of lots of them for opening at some point or trading), but with over 150 left to get (I want one of each).  I can't believe there are so many - it seems like we just got the Fett 300th, but there are now around 450 or so figs total  think!  Crazy.  And so the collecting continues...will it ever end?  Fortunately, my loose collection is in good shape.  Just a few more vehicles so I will have what I need for my envisioned dioramas, if I ever have the space to set them up!

Anyone else want to share the ins and outs of there collection, and where they are headed?

Wampa Cave / US trip (Utah and Las Vegas)
« on: October 25, 2003, 02:13:50 PM »
I just got back form vacation in the US, and was unimpressed overall with the toys there as well.  I probably hit 6-8 Walmarts, 6-8 TRUS, 6-8 Targets, a couple of Big K-marts, 4-5 KB toys, and a Sears among other places.  Overall, I did pretty well, but it was really hunting!

Here is what I managed to pick up:

Basic Figs

Older Saga Figs ($2.23USD each tax included!)
Clone Trooper X3
Endor Rebel Soldier X3
Super Battle Droid X 4
Anakin Skywalker Hangar Duel

Newer Saga/Clone Wars ($4.77-$4.99 USD before tax)
Red Battle Droid
Tusken Raider Tatooine ambush (or whatever - removable head)
Mace Windu Geonosian Rescue
Anakin Skywalker Secret Ceremony
Rebel Trooper
Imperial Officer
Teebo
Padme Droid Factory Chase
Darth Tyranus Geonosian Escape
SP-4 and JN-66
Obi-Wan Acklay Battle
Yoda Army of the Republic (CLone Wars)
Anakin Army of the Republic (")
Arc Trooper Army of the Republic (")

Deluxe/multipacks

Geonosian warior with Hive deluxe ($3.72 USD tax included)
Saga 4-pack (Various combos, mine has Zam Wessel, Taun We, and I forget the other two) (7.45 USD tax included)
Saga 3-pack with lightsaber (Various combos, mine had Darth Maul, Count Dooku, and Yoda with a Green Electronic Lightsbaer included) ($14.91 USD tax included)
Jedi Council 3-packs #1 and 2 (19.99 each)
Geonosian War room 3 packs #1 and 2 (19.99 each)
Durge + Speeder Bike
Destroyer Droid Launcher
Clone Trooper 3-pack
Anakin w/ Swoop
Dooku w/ swoop


Vehicles
AAT X 2
Hailfire Droid
Geonosian Starfighter
(All $19.99, Clone Wars packaging)

Playskool
Millenium Falcon ($18.80 USD tax included)
Wampa Attack ($11.28 USD tax included)
Duel with Darth Maul ($11.28 USD tax included)

And all of this at the best US exchange rate in years!  It was awesome.  I was looking for a lot more of the newer figs, though, and they just were nowhere to be found.  Oh well, I'll take what I got!

IN the prophecy about the chosen one, referred to in The Phantom Menace, how did they describe the chosen one?  I.e. what was the prophecy?
