So, Leopold and Stewart for us.  Not a bad haul I guess for not giving up much.

Leopold is a nice 6/7 defenseman that will allow us to send one of Folin/Dumba back to Iowa for bigger minutes and more seasoning...  a 3rd pair Leopold/Prosser isn't great, but at least we have a bit of injury protection since our D-corp has been hurt (or mump'ed) quite a bit this year.

Stewart... not sure.  Could be great if he's going to play hard and get gritty, and dig in... but he hasn't really done that since he left Colorado.  :-\  Maybe he'll just hang out in the press box for a few games until we figure out how to best use him...

Since the 2015 Black Series line is set, I thought I'd take one last "Pre-TFA" look at the unmade fan poll figures...

- 2006 Toy Fare Fan Choice Poll = 23 out of 25 made into figures; 92%

- 2009 Toy Fare Fan Choice Poll = 12 out of 30 made into figures; 40%

- 2011 Hasbro Fan Choice Poll = 7 out of 20 made into figures; 35%

Who’s left?  Glad you asked.  I’ve compiled the list of left-overs into one easy to reference/discuss list.  The # in parens is the polls they appeared.

Anakin Solo (2006)
Cane Adiss (2009)
Captain/Admiral Pellaeon (2009, 2011)
Captain/Admiral Piett (2011)
Cliegg Lars (2009, 2011)
Corde (2009)
Darth Caedus (2009)
Dash Rendar (2009)
Vintage-deco Death Squad Commander (2011)
Dorme (2009)
RotJ Emperor Palpatine w/throne) (2011)
Guri (2009, 2011)
Jaxxon (2009, 2011)
Joruus C’Baoth (2009, 2011)
Kittster and Wald (2009)
Mosep Bineed (2011)
RotS Nute Gunray (2011)
RotS Funeral Padme Amidala (2006)
Queen Apailana (2009)
Queen Jamilla (2009)
Sergeant Doallyn (2009, 2011)
Sim Aloo (2009, 2011)
Taym Dren-Garen (2009)
Tey How (2009)
Toryn Farr (2009, 2011)
Tzivvzt (2009, 2011)
Yak Face (2011)

Depending on how you feel about Doallyn vs the Brock Starsher we got, I guess you could give Hasbro a 0.5 credit on that one...

Still lots of figures left to go...

I wish they hit more obscure or EU characters in this line.

I think everyone does...

One more sign that we really need Episode 7 to dump some "new, never-before made" characters into the mix...  although it probably won't help the folks tired of resculpts as Hasbro/Disney movie lines tend to be filled with countless main character versions in the first few waves.  :-\

Agree on Han - he's got arm binders for crying out loud!

Disagree with you on Mosep though, Nick.  I can't wait for him - he's not just Mosep, he's Jabba the Hut too!



Really excited to get a figure of him given the Star Wars lore behind him.  I mean, this guy was basically "Jabba the Hut" for quite a few appearances in the early Marvel Comics until ROTJ came along and showed us who "Jabba the Hutt" really was. 

It's the same reason I'd love to see a figure of Heater someday - every fake Jabba should get a figure! ;)

Looking forward to Wild Vs. Nashville tomorrow.  Will be a much better test of Dubnyk and the Wild than the fodder we've been chewing up in our post-All Star run here.

[McConaughey]Alright, alright, alright.[/McConaughey] 8)

Man, my squad right now... 

So, so scared of the eventual day when Dubnyk remembers he's not a 1.68 GAA, .934 SV% Goalie.  :-\

WTF?  The Leafs traded Clarkson for a LTIR guy?  That's some high-quality tanking/trading right there... almost as nice as trading two bodies for a winger on IR for shoulder surgery.

Should be a nice end to the season watching the Oilers, Sabres, Yotes, Leafs, and Hurricanes fall all over each other trying to get a McDavid. :P

You would hope that if there were a Jedi (Ahsoka) so closely linked to The Ghost crew that Ahsoka would have pulled Kanan and Ezra aside and tried to train them.

Ahsoka wasn't on the best of terms with trusting Jedi when she decided to leave the Order.  I could see her distancing herself from any Jedi until she knew she could trust them.




That's the one I was remembering... maybe that's Hera's older sister?  Or maybe they will retcon her color change as a Twi'lek puberty thing like you said. :P

There were rumors of a Target exclusive Troop Transport with Stormtrooper, but it was never shown or confirmed the way the other three exclusives were.

Yeah, Good ole Cham...I always assumed but nice of them to confirm officially.

So... is Hera in those Ryloth CW episodes as a little girl then?  Might have to rewatch those and see if any match up.


I thought it was just going to be a "contact" that Hera hadn't actually ever talked to in person or holographically. 

I thought one of the episodes was pretty clear that Hera (and Hera alone) had met Fulcrum in person.  The episode where Sabine wanted more info on the rebels... was it "Out of Darkness" maybe? 

Yeah, I think it was that episode.  Hera goes to meet Fulcrum on a CR90 corvette, which is why folks think it's Bail/Leia since they both used CR90s.  Fulcrum could definitely be Bail/Leia/Mon Mothma and it wouldn't be a surprise.

Still though, I'm drawn to the idea (and hoping it's true) that Fulcrum is Ahsoka.  This may end up being red herrings from Filoni, but this is my favorite Fulcrum = Ahsoka hint so far: Hera recognized this crate as being marked for her by Fulcrum...  notice the "mark" matches Ahsoka's head?

Great day for Chicago sports teams.  Kane has clavicle surgery and Rose needs his knee scoped.

At first I thought Rose must have been a Blackhawks call-up since I had never heard of him before...   :-[

Watched quite a bit of the Pens/Caps game tonight hoping for some good fireworks after Ovi's whack at Letang last time...  what a lame game.  Lotsa boring, sloppy, chippy penalties, some soft goals by Flower, and a general "blah" game from both teams.

Looking forward to Wild Vs. Nashville tomorrow.  Will be a much better test of Dubnyk and the Wild than the fodder we've been chewing up in our post-All Star run here.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Wave 9 (2015 Wave 3)

Pre-Orders are up at BBTS

Looks like the case doubles up on Commander Cody... 
2x SW 6INCH CLONE COMMANDER CODY
1x SW 6INCH EPV IG 88
1x SW 6INCH EPVI LEIA BOUSHH

I guess they are expecting him to be the popular one and trying to cut off all the "I can't find Cody" bitching in case there is a 'last wave' effect with this wave being the last one before TFA stuff hits.

But Commander Doom?  I saw the Clone Wars episode featuring Doom.  At the time I didn't get the connection with his armor design, and that's probably because I didn't catch his name during the show.  But now?  The armor design and name combined actually look a little silly to me.  I get the whole Doctor Doom homage, but this seems to have gone overboard.

I'm not a big Marvel Comics guy, so I didn't catch that at first either.  Same for Commander THORn, with his z-6 'hammer' cannon and the painted wings on his helmet.

Makes me wonder how many more Marvel ClonesTM there are hidden in the Clone Wars...
