View Full Version : Imperial Shuttle Pics! (April Fools)

:D :D :D

Sorry, I know this was cruel but I couldn't think of anything else.

Since you are here, stick around and add to the conversation with the great people and many categories we have!

You got me :D

But I protest this gag on the grounds that 4/1 is still 5 minutes away where I live :rolleyes:

Ahhh!!! Darn you Sir Steve! That was a cruel trick to pull on all of us Star Wars fans that anxiously await pics of the new "Imperial Shuttle". Now, I am not saying it's not funny...but oww, that one hurt. In penance you must show us any pictures you are sitting on, that Hasbro doesn't want us to see yet. :D

That was pretty mean man. :cry: You cut me deep, man, you cut me deep...:cry:

Honestly, where is our shuttle? Hasbro is pretty adament about releasing the old vehicle molds, why haven't they released this one in a current line?

What else should we get in the new Saga line besides figures?

I'd like;

Imp Shuttle
Dagobah playset
Re-relese Tatooine Skiff
Mos Espa playset (Watto's Shop/Junkyard, or pod race)

Aw man, I forgot about April Fools.

*Chokes Steve with Force grip* :evil:

Damn you and your wit!!!

04-01-2002, 12:17 AM
Well, the joke's on you cuz I didn't buy it. Ok I did. Damn here crapped my pants.

04-01-2002, 12:17 AM
that is just downright mean. I object. You raised my heart-rate, and then came the let down. I shall now have to wallow in pitty, thank a lot!

04-01-2002, 12:53 AM

for some reason....even though I had an idea that this wouldn't be for real I still fell for it!!

It must be because of all of the new picture posts 2nite. I just kept clicking all the links out of excitment.


04-01-2002, 01:17 AM
I admit I fell for it as well.


04-01-2002, 03:45 AM
:D Well, I'm embarassed to admit that the reason you didn't get me is because I had already hit some other sites first tonight. Artoonews has a good one on Imperial Officer variation head sculpts and I'm still not sure about Rebelscum. They had a story on the Celebration II figure(s) being announced and there was not April Fools tag line. Having already read the news here from before midnight, I decided to check again and see if you had an April Fools post. Knowing it was too good to be true, I had to check this post first. My hopes weren't up, but obviously, I came here to check the picture just in case. Maybe next time!!! I know you got me last year.

I was all excited, I'll have my revenge SirSteve, mark my words! Or not....

04-01-2002, 06:28 AM
The best part is the file link says 'april fools' and there are still 165 views!

SirSteve, your journey to the Dark Side is complete.

You have been demoted. Now your just waterboy steve. That was hideously cruel. ARRGGHHHH. You certainly got me. I started with the earliest news links and went "up" the home page until I reached this one last. I didn't think anything of it, until...........

As shortround (from Indiana Jones) would say, "you bad man" (heavily accented).

04-01-2002, 07:29 AM
Sir Steve,

That was pretty harsh. Can't believe you would do that. Funny as hell but can't believe you would do that. Thats it, I'm not reading any more links on this site till 4/2. Not really but I wanted to make it sound threatening.

I like what The Force.net did. Thats funny too.

04-01-2002, 07:49 AM
You got me, too, Sir Steve!

04-01-2002, 08:00 AM
This is the first April Fools joke of the day! I'm glad it came from this site... It's nice to be loved! ;)

You most certainly got me. I can't believe it. Last year I didn't fall for any April's fools. This one is just to good.

Ohmigod. Am I the only one who DIDN'T fall for that one? Jargo? Anybody? Maybe it's because I'm in the April 1st state of mind...

04-01-2002, 08:44 AM
Rollo is right this day is the worst of all. The whole day you have to be on your guard about everything!! :frus: That was so not cool Steve, so not cool. Now if you will, I must go and clean my shorts.

04-01-2002, 08:52 AM
Egads...Well I have a reason for being tricked, I've uh...only been up for an hour so my "April Fools" reflexes are down right now...yes...that's it. :cool:

*conks Sirsteve on the head* No more April Fools jokes till you clean up your room!

04-01-2002, 08:55 AM
He got me good. I saw it on there and went straight for the bait.
Good one SirSteve, from one prankster to another. I commend you!!

04-01-2002, 10:00 AM
good one.:crazed:

04-01-2002, 10:18 AM
This is a great joke. I love it (wish I had thought of it).

04-01-2002, 10:48 AM
When I saw that, I said something along the lines of: "Bull crap". But I still looked anyway just to see. I really wasn't expecting the April Fools stuff - I had actually forgotten.
Had I remembered, I probably wouldn't have fallen for it, but I'll admit that I've been had, and I'll just have to keep my guard up today.
Nice one....:p

04-01-2002, 03:33 PM
Damn, you got me too.

Hang on.....phew,my heart stop for a minute there...I...I mean i wasn't fooled. Some are stronger than others.Ha!

04-01-2002, 08:38 PM
Damn it!!! Why couldnt this be true??? I thought I was dreaming again, but then I forgot it was aprilfools today. Damn you SS that one hurt where it count:dead:

04-02-2002, 01:05 AM
Yes, I'll admit that I fell for it; but I hope that Hasbro is paying attention to the reaction this joke got and realizes that we really do want this vehicle!

Ahhh, but who am I kidding? This is Hasbro.:frus:

04-02-2002, 08:36 AM
No, this is SSG. That's Hasbro - over there. The place churning out bendy toys. ;) :p

Thrawn pulled the same gag later in the day with a somewhat cheesy graphic he made and FAO took enough notice to email him:
