I am mad at myself for continuing to spend time on this garbage.

Amen. Yet I'll be tuned in next Sunday...................

I love the look of this thing. And the NERF feature doesn't bother me. I could be wrong, but I think the NERF feature adds more kid sales than it takes away collector sales. So whatever.

I would have been happy with any of these (Starkiller would have bored me some).

Anything OTC would have been great.

But count me in the camp that's confused why so many people are confused Jaina Solo is popular.

I'm excited to have an official Hasbro release to go with my custom Jaina Pilot/tank top 6" figure.

I think it just boils down to a wide range of tastes...  There's a ton of people at other sites that are all jazzed about EU stuff, old EU that is, but 'round these parts we are pretty old school (Face it, most of us are old farts now), and so we gravitate to the old stuff.  While some hate to believe it though, there is a generation that grew up with the PT that have their place too, and I think the EU would resonate with them more, and thus we're seeing what we're seeing.

I like when smarter people than me say things that I want to say.

FINALLY picked up Ahsoka CW44. She comes with two hilts and two lightsabers that aren't original to her, but for $50 I was happy to have her finally. I can't believe what she sells for carded.

Anybody give me any idea what a "fair" price on an AT-ST would be? I'm interested in picking one up, but want to make sure I don't overpay. Thanks.

I think Murray will be a really good goalie but Fleury is better.  Just injured at a terrible time and no time to knock the rust off.  I hope they don't trade him but I hear his agent is irate.  Not worried about it at the moment.  :)

Drew Bledsoe got hurt at a bad time................

I love me some goalies and so I love the Murray story. I hope he continues on as the starter and excels.

I of course say this with no skin in the game for the Penguins so my opinion is pretty worthless.

I just bought a Asty for $27 on ebay. Hux is as low as $35. I'll wait a bit more on him at this point.

I'd rather go that route than get stuck with 4 figs I don't want.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

What makes the UZAY Snowtrooper different from the Kenner (aside from the packaging, of course)?

The most obvious difference is the "cod piece" is black and then the "groin" is white as opposed to the opposite on the Kenner version.

And when I said "thrilled to add THIS", I really just meant any bootleg figure produced by SB Products in the 80s.

I'm no expert so I wouldn't bet my life on it's authenticity, but I do trust the seller.

Cardback, bubble, skirt all repros. Blaster is vintage Kenner.

Figure is authentic vintage Uzay. Someone colored/painted the shoulders and boots which is wearing off now. But I'm thrilled to add this to my collection finally.

Thanks Pete!

I'd buy all that if Washington (and Ovechkin) didn't crap out year after year.

I'm an Ovechkin fan and it's hard to watch teams/guys play who in my book don't seem to have that boot on the throat/killer/win when it counts mentalilty.

And sadly I think that's Alex.

McMetal you'd know better than me, but that's how I feel.

I wish someone would explain to the Capitals that the postseason is when you want to play good hockey. The Stanley Cup is the big trophy not the President's Trophy.
