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 actually caved today when I saw Galadriel Entranced.  One impulse buy for the day.

Where did you find her? 

TRU.  Actually saw that wave at 2 stores today.

I thought $224. for Vader was high.

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

It was there.  Check out EE's listing for wave 3 of the Deluxe figures.  You can see pics there.

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.

Other Toy Lines / Re: McFarlane Sportspicks

Wow, I actually bought some Sports Picks the other day.  Nabbed a Piazza chase and a Rangers Soriano.  But my interest is waning, since I just offered them up right away to a friend of mine who's more hardcore about Sports Picks than I am.

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends

I finally bought a green Hulk last night.  It was late, I went to WalMart, and there was a case of ML9 just sitting there.  The kind lady with the mustache in the toy department was very obliging and opened it up for me.  And you know what?  I left the Bullseye.  I just cannot care about that figure.

Well, going through the comic shop is a pre-order.  They're basically acting as a go-between for me with Diamond Comics.  I ordered mine already.  Thing is, to order these through your comic shop AND to ensure that you get both versions of the Sandtrooper, you've got to hope that they're ordering a minimum of one case.  The reason being that Diamond will not make certain that you get both versions of the Sandtrooper if you only order two.  If you do that, you're taking a chance that you'll get both versions since Diamond will not differentiate between the Squad Leader and the Sergeant.  The only way to make sure you get both is in the event that your comic shop orders an entire case.  If your comic shop orders the whole case, they'll receive a total of 3 Squad Leaders and 3 Sergeants.  What a pain!

Now I'm waiting for Bust Ups series 4 to go up for pre-order.  I can only imagine what the rush is going to be like when the new versions of Darth Vader and Yoda go up for pre-order.  Those could have the largest edition sizes since the Deluxe Stormtrooper.  That one clocked in at 10,000 pieces.
