Revenge of the Sith / Re: Basic Figure Leak: Already?

I can see something like this happening, but it would be a freak occurrence.  I could see a case getting mislabeled or a case of Collection 1 being mistakenly put on a pallette with cases of Preview figures, but it would definitely be an anomoly.

I actually got about a dozen of the SAGA figures early in 2002.  The store (Boscovs, an east coast department store chain) left them in a box that was wide open on the floor off the toy section.  This was about a week to 10 days before the street date.

Figures have actually been leaking for some time.  Hasbro employees get them early, and they've been trading with other toy industry insiders.  But for figures to show up at retail?  That is definitely strange.

Oh man oh man oh man!  I might be adding one of the more odd Star Wars actor autographs to my collection.  From who?  Why, the surly cantina bartender from the Star Wars Holiday Special, none other than Bea Arthur!  WOOT!

When are these supposed to come out for us non-Walmartians?

There's some in Jersey  :D

Roethlisberger's gonna take a lot of the heat, and that isn't fair considering our pass coverage was non-existant tonight (Brady had his pick of downfield throws it seemed), and a lot of the plays were botched at times by receivers.

Roethlisberger did fine for a rookie.  Seriously, for a rookie QB to get his team that far is quite an achievement.  Pittsburgh was really built on running the ball, and the receivers didn't get that much love this year.  It'll be interesting to see how the Steelers retool for next year.

Now since I have no love for the Eagles (Giants fan here), GO PATS!

So what is JediMAC's eBay username?   ;D

Thank you!   :-*  (I'm in, with just over 19 minutes to spare!)

New list:

1)  Gragra (Swokes Swokes)
2)  Amidala (Pre-Senate)
3)  Amidala (Return to Naboo)
4)  Daultay Dofine
5)  Aldar Beedo
6)  Dud Bolt
7)  Kitster/Wald 2-pack
8 ) Tey How
9)  Ratts Tyrell
10) Passel Argente

I'd be pretty content if I just got the first three here.  The rest is mostly garbage cartoon characters...

You know that Passel Argente's been made, right?  In the Geonosian War Room Screen Scene with Shu Mai and Nute Gunray.

All I would need to do is grab one of them by the ankles and start using him/her/it as a flail.  I could probably take out a few dozen of the others that way and buy myself some time.  After that, just break out the flamethrower!

Check out the ranks for the start of my Wookiee army!  From left to right:

Rorworr (Invasion of Theed RPG), VOTC Chewbacca, ROTS Preview Wookiee Warrior, POTC Yarua.

Picked up 4 of the new guys to get things moving along.

Scored these today.  Very nice.  I actually did a comparison shot of the Wookiee Warrior, VOTC Chewbacca, Yarua and Rorworr.  Big range in size between these four Wookiees.

I'm currently working on a project called SHOEMANIA.  Speaking of people involved in music, where the hell has Virex been?!

Welcome to the club.  Hey, it could be worse.  I knew a guy in High School who had a helluva lot of grey hair.  And he was 16 or 17!

Some of these new figures are cool.  A few of the choices are pretty obvious.  But there's definitely at least a couple of head-scratchers in there in the MLB and NFL lines.  I'm refraining from commenting on the NHL line since I'm ignorant on Hockey.

Most of those are in fact repaints.  The SAGA Ki-Adi Mundi has an additional bit of articulation as well as the different lightsaber & blast effect.  Also, I do consider the Hoth Darth Vader to be more of a re-release of the Imperial Forces 4-pack Vader.  This figure was signifigantly changed from the POTJ Emporer's Wrath figure, so I do regard them differently.  But most of the rest are really just repaints.

Check out the Making of Episode III Web Documentary, The Wookiees Are Back.  In it, animation director Rob Coleman tells some of the Wookiee actors that they are the senior warriors of the pack, while Chewbacca is one of the youngsters.  This might explain why many of the Wookiees are considerably larger than Chewbacca.

Looks like we might be getting the Clone Turbo Tank AND the AT-TE.  I can't imagine why Hasbro might make the AT-TE Gunner and Turbo Tank Driver otherwise.
