Close Jim but no cigar! It's not Friday the 13th. It was actually an arcade game and never saw a full arcade quality release on any console, a dumbed down Turbografx-16 version was the only one that ever really made it into circualtion, and two sequels where released for Sega Megadrive/Genesis.... Any thoughts?

The TIG Exam Room
 
 
Please welcome the next TIG victim who has bravely agreed to take the probe ...

He has been tied up , drugged up and his butts up

TEST SUBJECT # 20
 
 
 
FX-7 member probe: 10 Points of Articulation… 10 Questions… We will probe you!! - Page 6 Star_w33
Screen Name: Chris Coney
Real Name: Chris.75
Location: Cornwall U.K
Special Powers: pretty nifty with a lawn mower (most of my lawns at work are very steep banks)
 
 
Chris , thank you for your cooperation , let the probing begin ....
 
 
#1 What is your favourite SW memory ? (film or toy line)
 
My favourite Star Wars memory when I was a kid has to be , one Christmas , getting to open an AT-AT , a Jabba the Hutt playset and several ROTJ mocs (including a Luke Jedi) - all on the same day !! I had previously bought the first twelve figures , loose , from the girl next door for five pounds . That got me into the toy line , but opening the brand new toys on that Christmas day , was what got me really hooked on collecting .
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
A wee Chris on that faithful Christmas day ...

sporting his Blue Thunder pajamas cheers
 
 
#2 Other than Star Wars , which other toy line do you collect or would like to collect ?
 
I don't collect any other toy lines as I don't really have the room or the budget - lol !! But , if I was to collect any other toy lines , it would probably be vintage Tranformers , Thundercats or MOTU figures . My boy got some new Transformer toys for his birthday recently and I think I've enjoyed playing with them more than he has - lol !!
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
Thunder , Thunder , THUNDERCATS HOOOOOOOO !!!!!!

#3 If you had to choose 3 things from your collection as your favourites, what would they be and why ?
 
Oooh this is a tough one... I have sooo many favourites in my collection thinking
If I had to choose , then firstly , it would have to be my Palitoy Death Star playset ... not just because its a fairly rare piece , but also because I spent so many hours of my childhood playing with this awesome toy . Its pretty amazing that its in such good shape considering the amount of play it recieved... I still even have the box .
Secondly would be my loose Imperial Shuttle - I didn't get this piece until the early nineties when I would have been around 15 or 16 . It was fairly pricey , even then , as they were quite hard to come by in the U.K. - I remember saving up and paying it off over a few months . An old vintage toy seller in my local town had a shabby looking little shop filled with vintage star wars stuff and he kept it on reserve for me until I paid it off . I remember being so over the moon when I finally got to take the shuttle home (having wanted one for so many years) and it was my first serious investment into collecting Vintage Star Wars .
Thirdly was a more recent Ebay purchase a couple of years back... my loose radio controlled Sandcrawler . I had wanted a Sandcrawler since I first saw it in Steve Sansweets price guide back in 1995 . I was so happy to have won that auction (at a pretty good price too !) . The only downer is I don't have a remote for it yet - but its still so cool to turn it on and watch it trundle off down the hallway .
 
FX-7 Edit :

#4 What song would you perform at a Karaoke ?
 
erm I'm definately no singer !!!  The only time I might do it would be if I was absolutely off my face with a load of other drunken dudes . The song would probably be 'I Used To Love Her (but i had to kill her)' by G'N'R .
 
FX-7 Edit :

Could this be a unknown 5th member of G'N'R ???FX-7 member probe: 10 Points of Articulation… 10 Questions… We will probe you!! - Page 6 Longha10
 
Is it Kirk Hammet  ???
 
or could it be our very own ... Chris Coney cheers
 
 
#5 Time machine question - It’s 1983... Kenner executives are giving you the power to make any SW themed toy you like ... What do you make ?
 
Its got to be Jabbas Sail Barge for me too . That thing would have been a damn awesome toy if kenner got the scale right and made it big enough . I always thought that Lukes T16 skyhopper model in ANH looked pretty cool too (which they did bring out later on in the POTF 2 line) .
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
Chris and his Wife can actually travel through time ... here's a glimpse of their recent journey back to the 1950's :

Chris has requested that we kindly address him as "Fonzie" or simply "The Fonz" from this day forward What a Face
 
 
#6 So far, what parcel have you opened from the postman that has put the biggest smile on your face ?
 
It would have to be a recent parcel from Oscar . It contained a mint ROTJ 65back Vader moc , a very nice condition loose 'Taiwan' only coo Vader -complete with all Taiwan accessories . Oscar also threw in a load of other Vader variants as a gift... including a 'Made in Hong Kong' coo Vader - that was one awesome parcel , thanks again Oscar Smile 
 
 
#7 Which single SW character would you like to have seen released that was never released during the vintage line ?
 
I always thought they could have produced a lot more of the Cantina Aliens from ANH like they did with Jabbas Palace.
Like Paul , for me , it would have to be the Cantina Band.
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
a few cool custom figures of Cantina Aliens that should have been ...

#8 What’s the weirdest/most fun SW item in your collection ?
 
Unfortunately I don't have much in the way of oddball stuff in my collection yet . Nothing weird as such , but Larry did send me an unopened pack of vintage 'Topps' ESB chewing gum and photo cards recently (the blue pack with Vader on the front) . They are really cool... although its damn hard to resist opening the pack to try the gum and look at the cards - lol ! My most fun recent item would be my Kenner Droid Factory playset . My boy and I enjoy playing / building droids together with it and playing with my At-At -which he absolutely loves !
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
FX-7 member probe: 10 Points of Articulation… 10 Questions… We will probe you!! - Page 6 Empire11
 
If you ever decide to open those cards FX-7 calls dibs on the gum geek
 
 
#9 Tell us a little bit about your Vader focus ... What was your original attraction for our Dark Lord and when did you start your journey down this dark path ?
 
Well for as long as I can remember I've always thought that Vader was just the coolest villain out there . I've always been much more into villains than hero's , as they are not tied down by morals and can do what ever the f#ck they want ! That iconic skull like mask , the scary breathing and that deep menacing voice always gave me the shivers as a kid . I always thought it was cool that he could choke a guy just by looking at him  Twisted Evil
 
My loose Vader focus is still relatively new... I just started around a year ago . Vader had always been one of my favourite figures growing up - when your a kid you gotta have a baddie in your Star Wars collection . We all know Vader is the ultimate badass !  
I knew I wanted to start a focus - it was  between Vader , Luke Farmboy and Boba Fett . I was put off by Luke Farmboy because its quite hard finding nice minty white figures - I knew that I would probably end up going through a lot of rejects from Ebay before finding a good one . Boba Fett I figured would be too expensive of a focus for now but , a nice minty Vader complete with original saber and cape , can still be bought for fairly reasonable prices . Another attraction was the fact that there are so many Vader variants out there to collect and I wanted a focus that was gonna last me some time and hold my interest . I currently have most of the loose figures on Wolff's guide and even a couple that are not currently on his guide . I'm still after the big variations though - Glasslite , Takara , Poch and Top Toys . Once I have a couple more of these rarer figures then I would like to focus more on increasing my Vader moc collection .
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
Chris loves him some Vader...

#10 Do you have any other hobbies ? What are they ?
 
Not really any other hobbies as such , but I am Head Groundsman and Gardener for a hotel complex . Gardening is a big passion of mine , although my own garden is a little neglected due to my work commitments . I only have one day off work a week , so , the last thing I want to do on my day off is more gardening - lol !!  I keep a greenhouse with some nice exotics in it , a few houseplants , orchids and a Bird of Paradise plant .
Again , not really hobbies but more like typical bloke stuff : I love watching movies , surprisingly , sci fi being my favourite genre . Listening to heavy rock and metal music... although I would like to see more bands live . I like to keep in shape , as my job is fairly physical , so I excerise a bit too . I enjoy photography as well , although my camera is pretty basic and has a fixed lens . I want to upgrade it but I keep getting distracted by too much Vintage SW goodness !
I really enjoy photographing my SW figures too Very Happy
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
A little of Chris's green thumb at work ...

cheers  Well done guys, another great read.

I love the model of the ruined engine house in the garden pic. It reminds me of my trips to the Cornish coast. Were you involved in its construction Chris?

Embarassed       Embarassed      Embarassed     Embarassed      Embarassed     :opps: 
Oh no, i'm never gonna shake the Fonzie thing now am I lol! 

Thanks guys for all your kind words, that was slightly less painful than I thought it would be considering it was my first time. But for me Stefan its got to be cinnamon all the way baby, I like it hot!!!  :cool laugh: 

My missus ain't gonna speak to me for a while though, for leaving that pic of us up, on the introduce yourself thread No "How did he get that picture!! You told me you took that down!!!" ooops  doh

I need to update my limelight a bit, because the Ewoks have had to be moved to make room for another row of Vaders Smile 

@ Steve - Thanks mate, the engine house as well as a few other models originally came from a theme park near by that closed down. Everything was put up for auction and my boss decided they would look good dotted around the grounds, so he bought them. They are made from a type of Styrofoam and then painted, this one has a spot light inside too so it lights up at night.  

@ Alex - Hey Beard, i'd love to come up to your part of the coast and sort your garden for you buddy.  My fee is a bit a bit on the pricey side though, probably cost you a couple of bottles of Johnny Walker  drinking2

Thanks again guys for all the kind words and thanks to James and FX-7 for a really good probing, although i am feeling a bit loooose affraid:cool laugh:

The fonze in Empire Strikes Back.  Really crudely put together but, in my opinion he almost looks like the vintage Han Bespin figure.  lol!

TEST SUBJECT # 21
 
 
FX-7 member probe: 10 Points of Articulation… 10 Questions… We will probe you!! - Page 6 1090-310
Screen Name: Commander Clint
Real Name: Clint
Location: Cambridge, Ontario, Canada
Special Powers: Variants and Canadian oddities.
 
Clint , thank you for your cooperation , let the probing begin ....
 
 
#1 What is your favourite SW memory ? (film or toy line)
 
I'm not sure if I remember seeing the films in the theaters .  I must have , but years of drinking drinking  and partying :bong:  have made things a little bit fuzzy . I do remember watching the films over and over on VHS and laser disk as a teenager and into my twenties and thirties .  I do however remember playing with the figures for hours in my room , and then carefully storing them away in the mini case .
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
Clint , as many of us do , suffers from "short term memory loss" ... he spent a little too much time "hanging out" with Master Yoda :
FX-7 member probe: 10 Points of Articulation… 10 Questions… We will probe you!! - Page 6 Thcafd11
 
 
#2 Other than Star Wars , what other toy lines do you collect ?
 
I also collect Vintage Battlestar Galactica , and more specifically lately , the Canadian boxed ships and MOC figures .  As much as I would like to collect other vintage lines , like Clash of the Titan's , Buck Rogers , Planet of the Apes , etc..., I just don't have the space or funds .  Besides, my wife would kill me........
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
A little of Clints awesome Battlestar Galactica collection...

#3 Which SW character would you dress up as if you were attending a convention ?
 
Does being slave Leia's bikini count ? lol!  When I was at C6 (first celebration for me) , there where so many great costumes .  The ones that impressed me the most where the Chewbacca costumes towering over 7' tall .  But since I'm a little short to even be a stormtrooper (5'-9" or 175 cm) Stormie Smiley  , I'm not sure .  Maybe a Tusken Raider (Sandperson) ?
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
Slave Leia's bikini always counts ... usually for 100 bonus points per bikini What a Face

#4 What song would you perform at a Karaoke ?
 
F$*&*, I can't sing to save my life .  If you got me drunk and stoned enough to get up on stage to sing , maybe Paradise City by GNR ????
 
 
#5 Time machine question - It’s 1983 , Kenner executives have given you the power to make any SW themed toy you like... What do you make ?
 
OH, OH, OH, I always wanted the Blockade Runner and the Imperial Star Destroyer from the opening scene of SW .  Those are iconic .  Also a Tie Bomber from ESB would have been great as well .
 
 
#6 If you had to choose 3 favourite figure variants from your own collection , what would they be and why ?
 
#1 would be my VC Jawa , it was a fantastic find locally and it was one of my holy grails that I had been after for years .  It was like christmas as a kid when I got it .
#2 , #3 , and #4 are all very close .  They would be my Lili Ledy burgundy cape Bib Fortuna and Squid Head , along with my LL Jawa .  They are just great figures .
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
Clint's Ledy collection ...

#7 Which single SW character would you like to have seen released that was never released during the vintage line ?
 
So many come to mind .  But the one I would have liked to have seen released is the Garindan who leads Imperial Stormtroopers to the Millennium Falcon .  He would have been awesome .
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
a cool custom Garindan ...
FX-7 member probe: 10 Points of Articulation… 10 Questions… We will probe you!! - Page 6 68999710
 
 
#8 What’s the weirdest/most fun SW item in your collection ?
 
Ouch , this is starting to hurt a little bit .  Do you mind adding a little more lube ???
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
Certainly Clint ...
FX-7 member probe: 10 Points of Articulation… 10 Questions… We will probe you!! - Page 6 Lube-110
Feeling better and A little more relaxed ? Now that your loosened up let us continue....
 
Since most of my collection is packed away at the moment for renovations , I'm not sure what hidden gems have yet to be unpacked .  So many wonderful "World of Odd" items to chose from .  I think one of my favorites is my Fortune Telling Yoda (Magic 8 ball) that sits on my desk and watches over me while I work .  My kids will even pick him up every once in a while and give him a shake , and see what wise answer Master Yoda will give them .
 
FX-7 Edit :

Master Yoda ... will Clint be able to walk properly after his probe ?
 
FX-7 member probe: 10 Points of Articulation… 10 Questions… We will probe you!! - Page 6 Thcaiu10
 
 
#9 What advice would you give to a collector just starting out in the hobby ?
 
Be patient .  Buy local , stuff bought close to home will be the most nostalgic and fun .  Do your home work and ask lots of questions to fellow collectors .  And make lots of contacts with collectors , dealers , and toy shop owners . Very Happy
 
 
#10 Most of us know you customize vintage Star Wars figures ...
Please tell us what made you decide to start doing customs ... Do you do any other figure lines ?

 
I just love to put things together and create .  There are so many figures that were never released that would look so cool in the vintage style .  K-3PO , R-3PO , Imperial R2 and R5 units , Fleet Troopers , Sandtroopers , Han Stormtrooper , etc.........  So many figures , so little time .  I just work with vintage Star Wars for the time being .
 
FX-7 Edit :
 
a few of Clint's cool customs ...
