as long as they don't go too nutty with these, I won't go postal.   :P

Well, I think it's kind of cool that the "Ultra" line is getting some much needed attention.  I mean, just these alone....

ULTRA FIGURES 7items, available Spring 2004
___  General Rieekan with tactical plot
___  Wampa with tauntaun bone & base
___  C-3PO with escape pod
___  Jabba the Hutt
___  B'ommar Monk, Bubo & Wol Cabbashite 3-Pack
___  tba
___  tba

...are pretty cool!  I've got to wonder what the remaining two will be.  I think Dodonna with a tactical plot and Vader with meditation chamber might be right on the mark.  I guess we have to wait and see!

Thanks!  Is it me, or does that site take forever and a day to load?

I'm pretty happy with the announcements.  Some decent holes in the OT creatures and characters are finally getting filled with the 2004 line.  How they come out is certainly a concern, but the way the line has improved over the past three years gives me hope that they'll be decent.

As for some things not making the list?  I think you still need to chock it up to patience.  Some items need to be held for some measure of time just to maintain interest in the line as it moves forward.  I think we'll eventually get characters like Hermi Odle, and Hem Dazon, etc.  It seems more like a matter of when, rather than if.

Ian Holm's not too old to dismiss as a younger Bilbo.  He looked okay in the Prologue of Fellowship.  Who's to say he couldn't do The Hobbit as well.  

As for a director, I wouldn't want anyone except Peter Jackson to do it.  It seems that he wants to make King Kong first, thought.

Can you link to the article?  It looks like there was a link in there to a prototype pic.

So, what do you guys think of the new Ultra set including B'Ommar Monk, Bubo & Wol Cabbashite that was announced today?  I guess Ultra figures is the new name for Deluxe, huh?

Luckily it wasn't during rush hour.  Right now, it's about 9 AM in Japan, and the quake was several hours earlier.

Now there's tsunami warnings all over the Japanese coast, and around the northern Pacific rim.

What was the rest of the case like Morg?   And btw, some nice pieces in that case you got.

Actually, there will be seven Deluxe figures for 2004.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Hold the phone--"Deluxe" Rieekan?
« on: September 24, 2003, 10:25 PM »
Hasbro stated in Chicago that Rieekan would be a Deluxe figure.  He and the Wampa are the two deluxe items from the Hoth wave.

And after seeing the figure and the tactical plot in person, I can personally vouch that it wouldn't really be a good fit on a biasic figure card.

I went as a Jedi for Halloween in 2000.  It was pretty good.

Happy birthday!  I just hit this one last year, and you know what?  It's okay being 30.

Sad to say, but probably true.  I mean, I've seen the old switcheroo in items before.  Whether it's figures that someone resealed, or Cinema Scenes that someone changed the figures on, or most recently an Imperial Forces 4-pack that was missing the AT-ST Driver, and had a Captain Typho in it's place.
