Just scored Sabertooth, Colossus, Mr. Fantastic and Nick Fury within the past half hour.  Cool figures!  I'm still wondering why I left the Silver Surfer behind.

Yeah, it is pretty awesome.  

Now playing, Soundtrack Of Our Lives, "Behind The Music"



A group of rocking Swedes!  Unlike the Hives, who I only recently learned aren't really Swedish, just posing as Swedes!  Who would've thunk it?!

No sweat.  Although I've missed the initial shipments and haven't seen a single variant at retail for NHL6 or NFL7 yet.

However, my misery at retail is counterbalanced with the announcement of the Messier/Brodeur 2-pack.  WOW!  Nice to see Marty finally get re-done as he deserves, in the Devils red sweater.  That, and getting Messier in his white Rangers sweater is cool, too.  But there still aren't enough Devils in Sports Picks for me.  There's more guys on the team than just Marty Brodeur and Scott Stevens.  What about Elias or John Madden?

Buy Jet's "Get Born" disc.  



If you're a Pearl Jam fan, I think you might like that, Scott.  Gots to diversify!

NHL6 only recently hit around here.  Got my regulars of Roy and Anson Carter.  I'll keep my eyes peeled for the Selanne for you Brent.

Picked up the "There And Back Again" set during the week.  Nice, new versions of our favorite tricksy Hobbitses!  Can't wait to open it when I get home!

I'm excited to finally see Series 5 at retail.  While I've passed on the X-Men set, and Urban Legends so far, I can't wait to buy Colossus and Sabretooth.  Those two are coming home with me as soon as I see them.  I'm gonna space out buying all the rest.

The Sentinel is definitely a sweet piece.  Pretty big and impressive looking.  Definitely worlds beyond what N2 toys released.  The figures look nice, but I can't say that I'm as excited about this series as I was about Series 1.  Perhaps it's because I'm still a little bummed by Revolutions, even though I was expecting it to be a downer.

The A.P.U. is definitely on my list of things to get.  That thing is downright heroic!  And Mifune became one of my favorite characters of the series in the Dock Battle.  In the words of Keanu Reeves, "Whoa".

Definitely bummed about Alonzo Mourning having to call it quits.  I thought having a real big man like him would put the Nets over the top.  But, in the same regard, I had someone close to me die from kidney disease, so I fully understand him calling it a day to pay attention to his health.

The most weird thing about the whole situation is that people are coming out of the woodwork to offer a kidney to him.  I'm sure he appreciates the sentiment, but there are so many other people who need a kidney more desperately and are still waiting.  In many cases their family members can't donate to people who need kidneys for whatever reason.  And perfect strangers are offering their kidneys to Alonzo Mourning?  It's just very strange, especially coming from my perspective.  I was willing to be a donor, but the tissue match just wasn't there.  Having a bevy of strangers offering kidneys to him because he's a superstar athlete they don't even know is just a couple of steps beyong bizarre.
