Re: Mike Crawfords Endor rebel troops review


I think what pissed off more than a few collectors was the fact they released these characters first in the Militaries of SW line.

I mean the first release should've been something a bit more iconic, a Stormtrooper, Biker Scout, Clone Trooper, anything would've been better than these.

Re: Mike Crawfords Endor rebel troops review


I have to say I would have gone for just about any Star Wars Military figure over this, hell I'd have prefered a classic rebel trooper from the begining of A New Hope to this. But that said this is what they gave us so this is what we got. So like I said when they hit the bargain bins in six months or so, and I think these will be the hardest sell for retailers to get rid of so far. I reckon you'll be able to pick them up for about $30 in the US and probabaly about £20 in the UK.
And lets face it, if nothing else you can take the helmet, stick it on Medi Luke, make him a camo poncho, stick him on an old Hasbro speeder bike and 'voila' some good has come out of the situation.

No, I'd love to do one some day, and I'm considering the Star Wars celebration (you can get tickets on [sign in to see URL]) All us Limeys should try and make a date of some kind of fanboy/toyshow event and get wrecked together. Then go and spend way too much on [sign in to see URL] toys!
It's one of the few things we have over our Yank friends, we live in a small enough country that it might be possible.
Our country is soooo small I am personally friends with the Queen, all of the Spice Girls (who?)and King Arthur. Though I have to admit I did meet Simon Pegg in a pub in Muswell Hill a few years ago (circa series 2 of Spaced)...nice guy, very pissed as was I (please note this is the UK meaning of pissed, i.e inebriated, we were not angry with each other).




my word, jeff. you don't half meet some amazing folk in pubs. it must be your superpower - to find celebrities in pubs. i am tres jealous, i would love to sit and shoot the breeze with simon pegg. i absolutely loved spaced - i think it is the show that matched my own humour the most. AND DON'T YOU EVER SAY MY SENSE OF HUMOUR IS JUST LIKE FAMILY GUY!!!!

Yeah, Spaced was pretty good, that end of the final episode for the first series (paying homage to ESB as Lando and Chewy go off to rescue Han, watched by Luke and Leia) is a classic.
We didn't exactly shoot the breeze, we were in two different groups of people who I think shared a couple of friends. I don't remember an awful lot about it, except I'm told I embarressed myself by telling Simon Pegg I thought he was great in Spaced and Big Train, I believe there's a photo of us together out there somewhere but I never got a copy. I remember him being pretty friendly though, and even more pissed than I was.

Re: Mike Crawfords Endor rebel troops review


A couple of years ago I went to London Film And Comic Con with my g/f and Nick Frost was signing Shaun Of The Dead stuff on the day we were there.

My G/F didn't want an autograph but she went over and was cheeky enough to ask if he'd pose for a photograph with her anyway and he did.

I only spoke to him briefly but he seemed a really nice guy, I can't imagine many actors would pose for a photo without selling an autograph.

Simon Pegg was going to be there on Sunday, but unfortunately we weren't there two nights in a row so we didn't get to meet him.
