What do you think of Evolutions?
I think they are cool, yet odd. I think they look really cool and have some cool info, nothing new, but still cool. However, I think the character choices for some of them are odd. Did you notice they have Wald? Why would anyone want a Wald card? And they also did Zutton! For crying out loud, if they wanted to do an alien from the Cantina they could have done Dr. Evazan! And they also left out Emperor Palpatine, they did Senator Palpatine, but not Emperor. Other than some of the character selection, I think it is pretty cool. I have all of the base set except for damn Jar Jar Binks and Depa Billaba. Arg! I got an autograph, and a cool one too! I got Kenny Baker's autograph! I know he is only an A, but it is a good A. Better than someone who you never hear of like Michael Sheard (Ozzel.) I would have preffered James Earl Jones or one of the B or C autographs, of course. Well, what do you think?
What do you think of the card section in general...
What do I think? I think I just saw a tumbleweed roll by. Man, the card section is dead. Not at all the lively center of randomness it once was in the OLD Forums. It's sad really. I think the Star Wars collecting population sees card collectors as the trailer trash of the collecting world. Or the lepers. Whatever analogy you thing works best. I collect Decipher cards but whats the point of posting about it if you are the only one who reads your own posts? This section is an effrontery to what the Card:Other section once was and it should be drowned in a bucket of cold water or put out of it's own misery. Call it forum euthanasia. It's like listening to that old codger in the bar going on about who great he was in the prime of his life, but now he's just a bitter old wretch who sits there and downs screwdriver after screwdriver wallowing in his own misery reliving past glories. Who wants this constant reminder hanging around that the Card:Other section was once the crowning glory of the SSG forums. The very lifeblood that made the SSG unique and exciting, filled with intelligent posts on every subject, Star Wars related or not. How many classic and well known SSG rituals started in those very posts? Icons of Shame, Post padding, Icon Wars, Sly Wiley ... I could go on and on. At it's peak, a single thread in the Card:Other would dominate over even other entire SECTIONS. Ahhhh it was a grand old time and much fun was had by all. But alas, it's been replaced by this stodgy, decrepid section which burns my eyes every time I scroll by it and see yet another day has gone by with no responses at all. It's been made all the worse because the Misc section is now at the bottom of the scroll and to get there is like walking by an abandoned alley to get to the new Mega Mall. I make this challenge to you. Allow the poor saps who make this wonderful SSG world a fun and happy place, the GNTs, the Jargos, the bigbaradas, the Rollo Tomassis, the master jedis, the Bel Cam Jos...allow them to recreate the greatest thread in the world here in the Card section "I don't even collect the cards, but..." or mercifully put this section out of it's misery by applying the metaphoric syringe of death to it's sickly, unglorious forearm. Thank you for your time.
