Gentle Giant / Clone Wars Maquettes ARC Trooper

Has anyone seen a full size image of the ARC Trooper yet?  I saw an image of the ARC Trooper's head in the most recent issue of Previews.

It's certainly been a bit much.  Especially so since Reagan has been pretty much out of sight for over 10 years.  Writing valentines to him as much as the mainstream media is has been a bit overdone.

As for placing him on currency....no thanks.  I can't justify taking Hamilton, Jefferson or Roosevelt off of a piece of currency to make room for Reagan.  Especially since Reagan wasn't exactly our best fiscal president.  We had a big recession under him, then rampant inflation, staggering deficits, and a major stock market crash.  Too much bad economics bad karma going on there to even THINK of putting him on our money.

I will certainly offer the following:  he seemed to be a very genuine person who believed what he said.  Also, I hope his illness can bring a greater deal of awareness to the plight of those suffering from Alzheimer's disease.  Every case of a person who suffers from Alzheimer's and loses their mental faculties is a tragedy unto itself.

Actually, I think they scrapped him to make way for Vinatierri.

No problem.

On another front, how many of you are really stoked for this year's NFL figures?  I can't wait to get that Strahan-McNabb 2-Pack!

No doubt.  The going rate in the US tends to be around $20 USD for a signed 8 x 10".  Your own item can range from $10 - $15.

Really?  That explains a lot then.

Well, if you still need the regular it's not a big issue.  There are plenty here in NY, and it would be cheaper to ship from here than for Brent to ship from Winnipeg.

Sounds like they were fleecing you.  Those prices are very inflated.  Most shows charge much less for autographs.

One thing to bear in mind with Star Wars actors:  they don't make a boatload of money.  Lucas has never been one to highly compensate the talent.  In fact, some of the guys who played EPISODE II era Jedi weren't even actors, but crewmembers who were enlisted for the parts because they fit the costumes properly.

That's a fine scaled Sandcrawler... for Micro-Machines sized figures! All sarcasm aside, I'll pass. Congrats to those who got what they wanted however.

Same size as the vintage one.  :D

I can try Nick.  For obvious reasons, Yankees SP sit around here, but being a variant, Pettite might be tough.

Have you seen series 9 yet?  In particular, Nomar. I would like to get one, but Boston players don't make it to the shelves up here.  Let me know.

Thanks, Mikey.  I've seen plenty of regular Nomars.  In fact, I picked up the variant in the event that a couple of friends might have been looking for him.  However, they already had him, so I returned it.

Are you still looking for the regular?  LMK.
