of course, that also makes me wonder if there is a possibility of ordering the figure online and having a BAD part in it that you weren't expecting....

That's most likely the case. As the figure with the new BAD parts start to ship, the original version is done being produced.

If you are in desperate need of that piece, send me a PM with your address and I'll send you an extra one of mine I have laying around.

you really have that many extra ones lying around? lol  well, I may take you up on that if I don't find one anytime soon, but I'll keep my eye out in the stores for awhile longer....you'll probably still have some i assume :)

So I was at Walmart tonight and saw one of the Jawa/WED Treadwell figs, and noticed that it had the wrong Build-a-droid part packaged with it....instead of R5-A2's body, it was a U-3PO left arm. Has anyone else seen this? Are wrongly packaged BAD parts a common thing?

It's not wrong. Figures get "carried forward" or repacked from one wave to the next and when they do, they get packed with the newest BAD part. No need to worry, unless you end up missing a previous waves BAD parts.

well yeah, that is sort of the problem, because I need R5's body to complete him.....guess I'll have to keep looking for a Jawa that has the body with it. hmph.

of course, that also makes me wonder if there is a possibility of ordering the figure online and having a BAD part in it that you weren't expecting....

I'm really tired of people griping about the Spurs/Suns series being fixed. Yes, it is a stupid rule - I agree with that. But it has been in place for many many years, and if it is in place, it has to be upheld. If Stern/Stu Jackson had handed out no suspensions, bending the rule in that way would allow for people in future situations to argue the same case, and would always point back to this one saying "See, you let them go, why not me?"

Several other things to consider - part of being a championship team is is having poise and control in situations like that. Stoudemire and Diaw knew the rule, and they chose to follow only emotions, so it is their own fault they got suspended, even though it is a retarded rule. There were almost a dozen other players on the Suns bench who chose to not step on the court, even though I'm sure they were jolted by the hard foul and were concerned for their teammate as well. Another thing is to remember that the Spurs beat the Suns three times WITH Stoudemire and Diaw; it's not like they could only muster wins when those two guys weren't playing. And they still had a chance to correct it - Stoudemire was back for Game 6, the Suns could have won and sent the series back to Phoenix for a home court Game 7 with all their players available, guess what, they couldn't do it. The Suns are a great team but the Spurs are better and much more rounded, they always beat them and I am pretty sure that is not going to change for at least a few more years. In 2005 Stoudemire torched the Spurs for 37 a game and SA won the series 4-1. Trend? Playing no defense makes it tough to win a 7 game series against a disciplined, defensive and versatile team like San Antonio. The Suns couldn't even make it past the Mavs last year, despite Dallas not even being as good defensively as the Spurs.

I also find it hilarious that people claim Stern fixed the series to pave the Spurs road to the Finals, when he and everyone else know that the Suns would draw much higher ratings in the Finals. If any series were being fixed, it would be to draw the team that brings in more cash. Cavs vs Suns would have brought much, much higher ratings.

The bottom line is Stoudemire and Diaw chose to step well onto the court; they could have chose not to and nothing would have even gone into Stu Jackson's hands. However, the rule does definitely need to be revised.

I'm getting oped when I enter the chat room. Is the jedidefender room not registered? Seems like it should be registered with staff members set up as the only ops. Do people use the room often?
