Does anybody know where I can find a demo of Final Fantisy VIII? And is the game any good?

I spend my money on action figures, so i'm not exactly the best person to ask about wise purchases.

Nute, I now have four action figures myself, as part of my spaceship collection. The very biggest scale ships I have (A-wing, TIE/A and Anakin's podracer) have action figures for pilots.

For my TIE fighter, instead of Darth Vader (Whose black form sort of vanishes into the cockpit) I got a 'Xyber-9' character...some old samurai dood with two swords. He has one sword mounted on the wall of the cockpit with him.

The other sword I gave to my alien hive-warrior (same scale, too), who now eyes Anakin's podracer with malicious intent! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/eek.gif

I have (from right to left) Padme, Nute Gunray, Queen Amidala, and a Destroyer Droid atop my monitor. On shelf number 1, I have Emperor Palpatine, Imperial Royal Guard (I claim it's Kir Kanos), Qui-Gon Jinn with JEDI ROBES, Jek Porkins, Sandtrooper, Security Battle Droid, Mace Windu, and my last surviving Ninja Turtle, Leonardo in Samurai armor. On shelf two, OOM-9, Boba Fett, Darth Maul, Echo Base Trooper, Snowtrooper, custom Sandtrooper with black shoulder pauldron, Captain Tarpals, Probe Droid, and a Raptor. Behind the raptor is a 12" GI Joe (SNAKE EYES).

I'd recommend any FF game, they're all pretty good, but my personal fave is FFIII. FFIX isn't bad either.

You're just feeding that fixation, aren't you? http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/rolleyes.gif

I spend most of my cash on books, but I used to collect toys and still have a huge collection of unboxed, uncarded, significantly-less-than-mint stuff. I have a bad habit of kit-bashing my toys; when I got into Star Trek, I assimilated the SilverHawks. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

I'm now into models (as a writer, if I can visualize something in 3D, I can describe it http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/cool.gif ), and a few of the cooler action figs (I'm currently looking for Deathscythe Hell, with the big bat-wings that fold over the torso like a Gargoyle's wings).

The only things I have now in my apartment are a lovingly-detailed model of the starship Voyager atop a bookshelf, a boxed model of Epyon awaiting customization (I can't build it here, since all my glue & paints are at mom's house) on a table, and a little plastic figurine of Brooklyn the Gargoyle (pre-TimeDancer) crouching atop my monitor.

Zoomie, you have the Akira fig from Zyber-9!?! Cool!

'Akira,' eh? I always call him 'Samurai Dood.' http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif It's appropriate for him fly a TIE fighter, right?

I'm not surprised that Nute has a droideka on top of his monitor. There is (of course) an A-wing on top of mine.

Final Fantasy...never played it. Let's talk Star Wars toys, instead. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

I still need to find:
1 Droideka, 1 Imperial Royal Guard, 7 more sandtroopers (so i can repaint the pauldrons on them to make a full squad), Queen Amidala (Coruscant/Senate gown), Queen Amidala with Accension gun, Scout trooper, and the as of yet unreleased Queen Amidala in the Throne Room gown. In a few months, I'll be prowling around for the Amidala/Sabe Battle one.

See her lurking off to the right?

This pic puzzles me. There's a picture of sandtrooper with a GRAY pauldron, but I only remember orange, white, and black...

I got the FF8 Demo off a demo disc (Computer Shopper). And I'm a master. I've won it with all but 1 hidden GF (Tonberry King)

02-07-2001, 06:00 PM
I looooove FF8. My favorite is FF7, though. That was the first final fantasy game I ever played and I kicked butt!! I like Star Wars toys, but I don't have any to brag about. I have My Little Ponies, though. They were my favorite when I was little. I still have a couple. My favorite thing in the world is Hello Kitty.

'Hello Kitty?' Aw, that's so precious. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

Somebody get Amidala out of that box! She looks ill!

My Star Wars collection includes the 'Star Wars Sketchbook,' released mere months after the very first movie. As an authentic piece of Star Wars history, it's interesting (for example, there is an early sketch of a TIE bomber labeled a 'TIE boarding craft.') The cover is not in the best condition, but the pages are intact. It's probably worth money or something.

I liked final fantasy 6, and i thought final fantasy 9 best.

02-08-2001, 12:14 AM
Well, I heard Final Fantasy IX's ending sucked and I dont want to go find those old old ones.

02-08-2001, 11:01 AM
I also found some action figures. They were on sale for £2.50 each, but hadn't been kept well, so I rescued 7 (all original releases too - what a shame !):
Han (ANH)
Light Sabre Obi Wan
Numb Nien
Lando (TESB)
And an original B-Wing pilot (Suprisingly enough called Cmdr Adamson....)

And as for Final Fantasy, I was official dubbed the MASTER of FF7 when I proved that I took out both Ruby and Emerald in under 10 mins each, with out taking damage in either. NOW who is the Final Fantasy Jedi Master then Sad Shadow ? Bet you never found the secret chicibo nest in FF7......

Final Fantasy 4-6 are classics, but hell to get a hold off. FF7 had the GREATEST storyline, game system, characters and music ever. It is a lot like SW in taht respect - every thing just naturally fitted, and all the little touches were there, like the boss battle in the Forgotten Capital, versus Jenova being. The music played is not the usual boss mucis, but Aeris's Theme. If you wana know why, then play it, I'm not gonna spoil it. Those who have played will know the sevtion I mean - you gotta agree, I was V well done !

Just thinking about SW models, so far I have a Diecast N1 and an in-flight X-Wing model, but I REALLY wanna get a full sized (you know what I mean, although a REAL one would be sweet !) B-Wing model. Anyone think they know where I can go ?

The Action Fleet series has a B-wing, but that might be smaller than you're thinking (the pilot is about 1/4 inch tall.) Try E-Bay, because most of the Action Fleet series will never be found in stores again.

Here is another true Star Wars collectible story to make you cry...I was one of the first kids to get the original Star Wars action figures. I had a Luke, a Han, a Leia, and a couple of other main characters. My grandparents had ordered them for me before they came out in the stores...they came packaged in a plain, brown box.

Lost them all years ago. I wonder what they'd be worth now.

I saw few action fleet ships at the toy store today when i bought those dolls. They were all ships i had (TIE Bomber, Int, Snowspeeder, and the Y-Wing).
Anyhow, i got the one doll for $7.99 and the other for a WHOLE CENT. They're so desperate to unload dolls that are originally marked $24.99 that they're practically paying me to take them away.

That's funny. Our local Toys R Us has been doing the same thing with all of its Star Wars stuff. I picked up my action-figure size TIE/A for five bucks, and my N64 copy of Episode One: Racer for ten bucks brand new.

Maybe we're out of vogue. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

With toy and game prices what they are, this is a helluva time to have the mind of a child and the wallet of a grown-up. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

When I was a kid, do you know what we did when we wanted to dogfight each other Star Wars style? We chased each other in the front yard with our toy X-wings and TIE fighters!!! Now, we hang up the toy spaceships and duke it out on the computer, in hyperrealistic starfighter sims...

Thanks Hans. The demo was there.

I bought the full version yesterday.

I heard that FF X will come out on DVD. I cant wait to try it out. Too bad it was canceled in Japan.

03-05-2001, 09:51 PM
After two long years of incapacity to kill Wrexsoul in FF III I finally did it (almost a month ago, I couldn't believe it...) and I am currently finishing the game. I'm just training my guys befor I go kill kefka, I now have 2 level 99 with 9999 HP and about 960MP and in one attack they take off 9999 HP. FF3 is the best.

03-05-2001, 10:16 PM
Jem, with those levels, you can take Kefka down any time. like most FF's, the final dungeon is harder than the final bosses, at high levels.

03-05-2001, 10:20 PM
The only reason the toy stores are selling the SW toys for less , is becuase they r getting ready for the next episode to come out. Around here, they r selling them for 1.50 for the older SW series, and 3.00 for the episode 1. My collection consists of Transformers:Beast wars, SW, a few unsmashed GI Joes(which was the best toy ever) and a few of those vehicles, and some batman stuff, alil bit this and alil bit that

ummm....i was going to say something

I've been away for a while haven't I?

I have played several of the Final Fantasy games, and they have been enjoyable. Chrono Trigger beat any of them as far as I am concerned and I have heard very good things about Chrono Cross.

Just recently I played Grandia 2 for the Dreamcast and it quite simply beat the snot out of any Squaresoft RPG I have ever played. They weren't even on the same playing field in terms of character depth and development. Storyline had some interesting twists too. No harder than the FF's though.
