I've heard that Boromir is going to come out as a single packed figure.  Not sure which color packaging.  But an educated guess tells me that it would be in blue packaging.

Oh, and I forgot to mention...I got my Sharku and Warg this morning, too!  It was a LOTR BO-nanza!

Well, if it's any consolation, I haven't seen Pelenor Fields Aragorn or Armored Eowyn yet.  Also, I paid $15 for Bilbo.  I thought it was a little high, but not crazy.

Hey, I saw Bon Jovi too. Not by choice, but because that was the only taping of Saturday Night Live I've ever been able to get into.  Had to be honest with that one.  It was the infamous "Joey Buttafucco" episode.

WOOHOO!  Traded this morning for Eowyn, and bought a Prologue Bilbo a little later!

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?
« on: August 21, 2003, 04:41 PM »
Try turning the left wrist of that Clone with the binoculars again DUSTRHO, it is articulated, and is great when you remove the binoculars, because he can hold his rifle with both hands.

His wrist is articulated???  I never would have known.  I actually thought I had tried moving it around, but maybe I wasn't trying hard enough.  I'll have to try again when I get home from work tonight.  Thanks for the tip Chewie!

I've found that all of the Clone Troopers in the 3-Packs have articulated wrists.  And it's almost always in the hand holding the weapon.  Haven't seen the binocular version yet, though.

Oh, god!  I don't understand why my Yankees would pursue Armando Benitez!  I think my chances of suffering a heart attack have just gone up exponentially.  :(

I hope he blows as many games for the Yankees as he did for the Mets.

Well, that changed rather quickly.  Frankly, I can't understand why Seattle agreed to take Benitez.

And alas, the Red Sox don't seem to have enough gas in the tank to win the AL East.  They're 7-1/2 games back in the division.  AND, they're 2 games back in the Wild Card.  They really need to turn it on if they're going to catch Oakland.

But, my Yanks appear to be on the verge of winning yet another AL East title.  I just hope the starting pitching can hold up, and Boone breaks out of his slump.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Trooper Multi Packs
« on: August 20, 2003, 10:34 PM »
The count so far seems to be:

Clone Wars 3-packs
Kneeling, Standing, Prone (white/clean)
Kneeling, Standing, Prone  (blue standing)
Kneeling, Standing, Prone (green kneeling)
Binoculars, Kneeling, Standing (yellow binocs)

Clone Wars Bonus Packs
Anakin with Blue
Durge with Clean
Yoda with Yellow

I feel like I'm missing a 3-pack from the list?

J


You've got a mix-up in the 3-packs.  Here's the 3-Pack lineup:

Standing, kneeling, prone - All white
Standing, keeling, prone - Standing blue
Standing, kneeling, prone - Prone red

Standing, kneeling, binoculars - Kneeling green
Standing, kneeling, binoculars - Binoculars yellow

I'm assuming these are all of the non-poseable variety?

I think this might actually be a repaint of the red Clone Trooper.  This seems just like the K-Mart 2-packs that were done last year.  Hopefully they don't get them.

I can't believe that people are willing to pay that much over retail.  Especially when these figures will be readily available at retail in a relatively short period of time.
