Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

I'm really disappointed the spring-loaded ones never took off. I think those are the absolute best.

Are you sure? Because I can think of at least two figures out now that I would want and if I can use those UPC's that's gold.

Kids can not only convert the toy into both Anakin Skywalker and his future incarnation Darth Vader, but also into two awesome vehicles, the Republic Attack Cruiser or a Star Destroyer, making it four times more fun to rule the galaxy!

George Lucas Talks SW Live-Action Series and 3D Movies


The Maker himself, George Lucas, appeared on G4's Attack of the Show on Monday and Tuesday nights to discuss three major contemporary Star Wars topics.

G4's Kevin Pereira interviewed Lucas and Disney Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald about Star Wars in 3D, Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, and yes, briefly, the upcoming live-action series. Lucas and Fitzgerald described the unique nature of the new Disney ride and its evolution over the years. Lucas also discussed the challenges of converting the Star Wars film series to 3D and the fact that everyone involved is being very careful to do it right.

However, the hottest segment of the AOTS interview by far was the part where Lucas discussed the live-action TV show. Here are some of the things that he said about the eagerly-awaited series.

"We have 50 hours and we're just waiting to figure out a different way of making movies, a different technology we can use ... to make it feasible to shoot the show."
"[W]hen we do figure this problem out it will dramatically affect a lot of movies."
"Right now it looks like the Star Wars features."

Last we heard, the series was still in the script stage, so this is a significant jump forward in the creative process. With Celebration VI hopefully just a year away, is there a chance that we'll have new live-action Star Wars footage waiting for us in [insert CVI city here]? Here's hoping!

You can check out both interviews here, courtesy of G4 TV.

So how big of a cluster do you think this thing is going to end up being? Does Anakin have an arm or just that hull thing?

Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
This weekend we had the First Annual Albuquerque SciFi Expo. It was a lot of fun and there were some good stars. The two biggys were Ray Parks and Walter Koenig, but there were also some other really great SciFi people as well. I got Ray Parks to sign my 30th Anni Saga Legends Darth Maul figure (I always loved the packaging for the 30th Anni figures).

The vendor room was pretty good but not as good as some of the other conventions we had this past year. However there was one vendor that had a ton of Star Wars stuff and it was ALL on DEEP DISCOUNT. So here are my spoils and they were all minty fresh on nice cards.

Darth Krayt and Sigel Dare
Antares Draco and Ganner Krieg

R2-D2
Tatooine Luke Skywalker (long saber)
Tusken Raider
Hoth Han Solo
C-3PO
1996 POTF Green Packaging:

1998 POTF Green Packaging:
