I've seen the new Spiderman classics wave that has the Sandman in the wave.  Of course, no Sandman to be found.  Oh well.

Hamma's lame.  The guy gets eaten by a Warg before the Rohirrim even make it to Helm's Deep.

Looks like you got it.  I checked the scores again today, and the score I gave you last night was short by 1/100th of a point, so you increased your margin by that much.  I'm glad it was a tight week.  Too bad I didn't start Kerry Collins though... :(

Not sure where you got those numbers, but my Stat Tracker came up with the following final:

Nicklab's Nucklehead's:  43.46

The Zod's:  45.84

Congrats, KBZ!

I saw the Sam, but I passed.  I want pretty much everything else in that wave except him.

Ah, you grasped my point exactly, Scott!  The whole thing turned into a "dig me" exhibition.  But some people will probably still not accept that this piece is a promo, and continue to get agitated.

Something NOT so cool from GGS:

Chrome Sandtrooper for "friends & supporters" only 200. >:(

Here's what I wrote in that thread:


This piece is a promo, pure and simple. I know a lot of people are upset about this, but this sort of thing does happen in the toy and collectible industry quite often. Fact is that there are "promo" versions of even the limited pieces that companies like Gentle Giant, Attakus and Master Replicas put out. These can number in the low hundreds, and they're typically not numbered pieces in a limited edition. These things go out to dealers, media and peers in the industry.

I know someone at a major collectible company, and he routinely gets things from other toy and collectible manufacturers well before they hit the market. Case in point, he's had the ROTS preview wave for at least a month. This is a standard thing that happens within the toy industry.

Why has this situation blown up? Because of the fact that information about these pieces has been leaked to the general public. While I can appreciate any business giving out Christmas gifts, this should have been handled more delicately. How? Gentle Giant should have only given this piece out with the stipulation that it not be publicized by the media outlets it was sent to.

Might I get flamed for this post? Sure. But please take the time to read what I wrote, and view it objectively, not irrationally.

Good luck to you and the Zods.  Enjoy Florida too, and Happy Holidays.

I've heard reports that the new TTT figures are showing up, but I haven't seen them yet.  I also just recently got the new ROTK wave with Gorbag, Denethor, Citadel Guard & Prologue Smeagol.

Regular retail.  There's been such an influx there due to the holidays that I'm actually finding some stuff.

I saw the rest of the new FOTR wave except for the PJ hobbit.  They all look really good.  Getting Peter Jackson would be pretty cool though.

Well, then I guess they were released!!  Nice score on the new figures, btw.

Someone told me at another forum that the Battle Troll shipped with the rotocast Eomer.  I had seen the Eomer, but never the troll.  And since Toy Biz doesn't really show what's current on any of their cardbacks, and their site it terribly out of date, who would have known?

As for the figures, the Isildur looks great.  This is one figure I've been hoping they would make ever since The Fellowship Of The Ring came out.  I'm just a little surprised that they didn't include 2 accessories with Isildur.  First, the shard or Narsil.  Second, the One Ring.  Those would have been such natural accessories to pack in with this figure.

WOOHOO!  Scored Isildur and Transfixed Bilbo last night.  They look awesome.  But the real score?  Someone's got an extra Battle Troll that they're going to trade to me.  Un-friggin-believable!

$15 for nothing?

I'll take it. You'd think they'd get tired of handing out gift certificates because of this line.

Now if they'd get some new LOTR or SW stuff in stock, I'd be stoked.

Same here.  I'll probably wind up using it on a DVD or a CD because they usually don't have anything SW wise in stock that I'm interested in.

Just got the email here too.  Good news, I guess.

I'd trade Hawaii for being in the JD FFL final too.

EDIT* - Just looking at the numbers now.  Yeah, you would've beat me soundly this week (unless I had started Roy Williams instead of Reggie Wayne), and I had a good week.  But you still would've beat me by about 10 points unless Vinatieri went on a scoring streak.
