Hey Nick, you can talk all you want about New Jersey stores and finds at  your NJ site, but I think if you're finding stuff in NY, and NYC, you should share with us too.

It is just so typical of people from NJ to benefit from NYC, and do nothing to support New Yorkers!

(I'm joking.  I grew up in NJ!)

I think it would be cool to do that. We are a pretty small community over here, so I don't think it would do any damage.

I can understand your reasoning behind keeping your info exclusive, but it still seems kind of elitist. Obviously its your prerogative, but aren't you also a member of this community?

Don't take this personally, I'm just looking at it from the other side of the fence.  :-\

And just for some lighthearted fun, here's you!!! :P



(Hopefully you've seen that Simpsons episode, and get the joke :D)

The intention behind it isn't elitist in the least.  It's more of a rewards based system.  Basically, it asks you to contribute reports in order to access them.

As for my contributions to this community, I think it's everyone's perogative to decide what they will and will not contribute in a given forum.  And I just prefer to keep that kind of info local.  Not a slight against anyone, just the way I prefer to do things.

I know where Bayonne is.  I'm in the North Jersey area.  Also, I see you've rejoined.

Hey Nicklab, which stores were you checking? I just went to TRU Times Square on my lunch break, and I didn't find anything new. And Union Square seems like a lost cause. I don't think I've ever found anything there.

Sorry Lando, I only share that kind of info at the NJSWCC.  It's a local New Jersey thing I'm part of.

However, during the late summer, I was going to the Times Square store somewhat often.  Several times I did okay there, so it might be worth checking back.  It is, after all, the flagship store of the chain, and they get a lot of the good stuff.

I think there are some VERY SLIGHT differences between the two.  The one on the Tantive IV, U-3PO has the duller finish of the two.  Also, the fabric in the droid's midsection that the wires run over is black.  On E-3PO, I think the finish might be shinier, and the midsection fabric is more of a tan or beige.  That's the way I recall it, anyway.

As for celebrating Life Day, I've got a copy of the Holiday Special.  I just don't know if I can bare to sit through it.   :P

I'm running into a real estate problem too, so you're not alone.  With the X-Men, I actually feel pretty strong about displaying them with the bases.  Especially since Gambit, Magneto, Colossus and Sabertooth all come with the various sections of a smashed Sentinel.

As for the rest, I decide on a case by case basis to display with or without the base.  The Human Torch is one I definitely would not want to display without the base.  He's a lot more "in-character" with his base rather than without it.  Doctor Doom is another I prefer to display with the base, but moreso because I like that base a lot more than some of the others.  The same goes for Thor.  A lot of the other bases are non-descript enough that I don't really mind displaying them without their bases.

I guess I left him because there were three of him.  I figure I'll get him some other time.  Anyway, I didn't see Blade or the Red Skull there either.

Now I'm wondering what I'm doing online, and not opening these figures?!

Stuffs been hitting like crazy in the NY area.  Including the new Ultra figures at just about every TRU I've been to in the past couple of days.  And Target's been getting the latest SAGA wave in pretty decent quantity.  It might just be a regional thing for you.

My pal Jimmy has come up with some more scoops and looks to have taken back the reins of the Trade Federation

Anyway...looks like he's got some more possible figures...

Luke Endor
E3-P0
Cloud Car pilot
Bespin Leia
Ewok (we assume Chief Chirpa as mentioned before)
Death Star Trooper (although listed as "officer")
C3-P0 with knee articulation
Luke in robes from medical frigate

Stay tuned Rumor fans! And good luck with the site Jimmy ;)

It's nice to see Jimmy back in the saddle again, and with some fresh news.  However, I always get confused with which protocol droid E-3PO is.  Is it the silver one from A New Hope or the silver one from The Empire Strikes Back?

An endor Luke is certainly overdue.  Nice to see that in there.  And while I think that Medical Frigate Luke is somethign we've never seen, it does seem a little boring.  It also has the potential to bring us back to that dreaded land of too many Lukes!

Oh, and I dig the avatar Scott.  Nice to see you in the Holiday Special spirit! ;D

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!
