This may seem silly, but you know what I like about this piece?  Hasbro put the decals on at the factory!  That was one of the biggest hassles about the Sneak Preview fighter & the Obi-Wan fighter:  it was IMPOSSIBLY DIFFICULT to get the decals well placed in the cockpit.  Thanks for doing it on this one, Hasbro.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: "Evolutions" assortment...

Some of these Clone Commanders will undoubtedly make it into the Databank at The Official Site at some point.  That will probably be the definitive statement on the issue.  Until then, the Visual Dictionary is the only visual reference that Lucasfilm has offered, and should be treated as the real deal.  You can disagree with that all you want, but until photographic evidence is offered up to the contrary, or you see the movie at Midnight Wednesday and Aayla Secura specifically addresses a certain Clone Trooper as Bly, then we have to accept the Visual Dictionary as fact.

I don't think so.  Why would just 1 of this crew have a yellow painted breath filter, yellow painted thigh armor, macrobinoculars, and the long rifle rather than the short one that all the other are carrying, look just like Thire, and not be Commander Bly?  The Visual Dictionary is clearly a mistake.

...In your opinion.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: **** UPN- 'Enterprise' cancelled.

I heard the funniest thing about this.  Apparently some ST fan started a website in an effort to get people to contribute money so that the show would continue.  The idea was that the money contributed would be put towards the continued production of the show.

The interesting part is that the guy doing this was just a fan and had no association whatsoever with the production company that made ENTERPRISE.  He also had no affiliation with Paramount, either.  They in turn want nothing to do with this scheme.  And on top of it all, the guy may be getting charged with fraud for collecting all of this money from devoted Trekkies.  HI-larious, I tell you!

I saw both of these yesterday.  I passed simply because I didn't want to part with $40 for them.

I thought $224. for Vader was high.

 :o   Unleashed Unmasked Vader    :o

 :o  :o  DARTH VADER UNMASKED    :o   :o

 :o   :o   :o  Darth Vader Unleashed (unmasked)   :o   :o   :o

Looks like Toyfare was way off base with their Unleashed price guide in this month's issue.

I saw the Pellenor Fields set the other night.  Very nice set, definitely.  Probably one of the best box sets of the bunch.  I'll pick it up in a few weeks.  I'm not in much of a rush for LOTR lately.

Is it silly for me to say that I'd like to see the movie first?  Anyway, here are 10 assorted characters that I'd like to see beyond #57:

- Merumeru - Wookiee Elder
- Shocktrooper
- V-Wing Pilot
- Emporer Palpatine - SA, Senate Chamber Duel
- Padme Amidala - bun hairdo
- Cin Drallig - Jedi Swordmaster
- Commander Neyo
- 2-1B Droid
- Utai Beast Wrangler
- Po Nudo - Aqualish Seperatist

I don't think army building makes anyone a bad person.  I'm an army builder, and I can empathize with the sentiment.  As long as you're leaving something behind (provided there's more than 1 or 2 of a given figure), then I think army building is fine.  When someone goes into a store and buys EVERY army builder and it's just an unreasonable number of figures relative to what's in stock in that store, then I think that coule be considered hoarding.
