I saw Shelob today at a Comic Shop.  They wanted $20 for her, so I passed.  It looks great, though!

Revenge of the Sith / Re: AT-TE

While I've heard rumor of a high price ticket item, I can say that it isn't the AT-TE.  I've heard that a playset might be on the way, and that might be occupying that price point.

I would definitely like to see an AT-TE.  I think it's a pretty cool vehicle, but I think the only way we might see it is if it's about the size of the Republic Gunship and is offered at a $39.99 price point.

I like the blast door frame behind him, and the blaster shots going by just add the icing to this cake!

Well, what is this?


Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Selling Collections

I've been seriously considering selling 3-4 lines worth of old stuff that I have.  It would probably be my GI Joe, Transformers, Spuer Powers and Secret Wars stuff.  Thing is, I don't know how to go about doing it.  I abhor ePay, and I'd like to sell to someone serious who is also a collector AND is willing to pay a fair price.  It stinks.

I just ordered VOTC wave 3 through EE.  I also cancelled my wave 2 order through SWS today.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Anybody find OTC at retail yet?

Finally saw an OTC basic figure tonight.  Too bad it was the reissue Cantina Han.  >:(

Uh-Oh, Nick,

Better re-check your order then...

Somewhere around July 7th, most e-tailers CHANGED the case packs for waves 2 and 2.5 cases.

From EE, wave 2:
"UPDATE July 7, 2004 - Assortment Change. Lando Calrissian has been removed from this assortment by Hasbro. Please see item number HS85213B2. "

Lando got pulled and replaced with Han and Luke.  

The case-pack of 2x Han, Luke, Vader, Yoda is how EE, NewForce, etc are all listing the wave 2 case now, and it has been confirmed by Cloud City, Brian's Toys, and ActionHQ all of whom got the wave 2 cases in this week.  I would assume that this will end up being the case for too since their case pack is exactly how the old EE case pack was listed.  :(


Thanks for the heads up!  I contacted SWS, and they confirmed that the case assortment had in fact been changed.  In fact, it appears that they've pulled that case assortment from their Hasbro product listings.  I hope they'll let me change my order.

Regarding TRU, they're having a hard time competing.  With who?  WalMart and Target.  Those big box stores order a lot, and they've managed to get their stock turnover down pat.  WalMart just happens to be the highest volume toy retailer in the US.  TRU may be in for a fight to hang onto their market share.

On another note, I saw this picture over at, of the Balrog prototype alongside a Gandalf the White figure, to show the scale.  This thing is going to be larger than I thought.  I'm not able to be into this line big time, but man that Balrog is tempting.  

NECA actually makes that Balrog.  A completed version was featured on the most recent issue of Tomart's.

I was saddened to hear that Coors is buying Molson.  Molson was like mother's milk while I was in college.  We even used to make beer runs into Canada to buy Molson Bradour at the Canadian duty free shop.  Now I just hate to think of how the people from Coors may literally water down one of my favorite beer brands.  Drat!

Actually, they may very well be correct.  I have some sources at TRU myself, and there are pretty good TRU stores that aren't carrying some well regarded lines.  Among them are lines like Marvel Legends, Simpsons, MOTU, some McFarlane Sports Picks items...I know it seems weird, but things like this are happening.  It's got to do with what some of the buyers are doing.

Sorry HE, but I have local friends who are in line before ya!  But if they start showing up en masse, I might be able to hook you up.
