I was under the distinct impression that these are made by Koto, and not Tomy.  The boxes I have say as much.

5704
Three now, even though only 2 have been freed from their plastic prisons.  ;D

Love the ET in the pics, Ook!  That actually looks really cool aside from the force lightning graphics.

I'm not at all opposed to high quality PT figures, but I just see no appeal in mimicing the vintage styling for those movies.  They were never on that style of cardback so why bother?  Blasphemous I say. 

I wouldn't mind seeing the main characters (and important lesser characters) being done in a highly articulated manner, but I see no point in paying the $4-5 premium for an underserved cardback. 

I think everyone recognizes just how iconic those original cardbacks were.  Even Hasbro did, since they tried to rekindle that nostalgia with the OTC line.  It seems like the ultimate achievment for a Star Wars character to be made on one of these cards.

5709
Certainly a topic worthy of discussion.  The guys at Hasbro seem into the concept, but it might take a while to get around to these.  Still, here's what might be a good first lineup.

THE PHANTOM MENACE
-Qui-Gon Jinn
-Darth Maul
-Battle Droid
-Queen Amidala

ATTACK OF THE CLONES
-Anakin Skywalker
-Obi-Wan Kenobi
-Count Dooku
-Jango Fett

REVENGE OF THE SITH
-Darth Vader
-General Grievous
-Darth Sidious
-Yoda

Just one right now.  There WILL be more.

Scored the entire vintage wave plus 1 extra Tusken Raider.  NICE!

Las Vegas would be an ideal location.  Abundant hotel rooms, relatively cheap airline flights from all over the US, lots of additional entertainment at hand, no worries about freezing outside on line, oh, and not one, but TWO of the largest convention centers in North America.  The convention center in Indy was overwhelmed in '05.

Yeah but (without having read your link yet) isn't the knock on hydrogen that it requires oil to convert into usable fuel?  Which would sort of defeat the purpose to a degeee.

It's an electrolytic process.  So it does require some electricity in order to process the raw materials, but there are a variety of means of generating the power to do so.  The catch being though that most electricity in the US is generated using dirty fuels like coal and oil.

Iceland has been experimenting quite successfully with hydrogen fuel cells in vehicles and at electrical generating plants.  It just hasn't been getting as much press as it should.  Read an article about Iceland's efforts in the hydrogen field HERE.

Also be sure to check out The National Hydrogen Association.  This technology is probably going to replace gas in your car eventually, provided the technology can be made widely avaiable.

MySpace is good for promoting bands.  As for the other stuff?  There's a surprise.  Sex fiends and kid touchers using the internet for their own deviant purposes.  That's an internet problem, and not one that's exclusive to MySpace.
