Well, one of those two teams fans could finally quit whining.  I would like to see the Cubs win a Cubs - Red Sox series for a number of reasons.  For one, I'm a Yankee fan, and it's my obligation to root against the Bosox.  Next, the Cubs haven't even been to the big dance since 1948.  Throw them a bone!  The Red Sox have been there at least twice in that timespan.  Then, consider that the Cubs have an even longer winless drought in the World Series than the Red Sox.  I think 95 years should be the longest you should go without winning.

The only reason I think it would be interesting to see the Red Sox win is this:  what would happen to the fans?  Would they know how to react?  The radical shift in psychology could drastically effect all of New England.  But it would hopefully abate some of the whining that some Red Sox fans are renowned for.

Well, tomorrow I go back on the Atkins diet, so my fruit for me.  But, I'll be indulging in the veggies when I can.

As for this stuff...



...I got in the habit of drinking it when I was doing some work in California.  It's weird, but good.

In all honesty, I only went to one store today.  Spent most of the day with my family, and that was really nice.  Maybe tomorrow morning I'll find the Hailfire droid and treat myself.

Thank you everyone!  I really appreciate the birthday wishes.  I had a great day, but alas, no Star Wars.  I had a good time spending some time with my family.  Perhaps the birthday luck will carry over until Wednesday, when I go on my toy run.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Wave 4 Battle of Yarvin

Well, Captain Antilles and General Dodonna have been confirmed for some time.  I think Dodonna may very well wind up as an Ultra figure, with a tactical display accessory.

As for the rest of the wave, we could see Red Leader hopefully.  I think a new TIE Pilot isn't inconceivable, either.  Perhaps this is also a chance to get General Tagge, at long last.  I also think a Motti reissue is a possibility, as is a new sculpt of Tarkin.

I like Boylan's root beer, and also Stewart's.  Both of them are pretty good.

If I might add...I'm genuinely surprised to see the holographic Luke on the list.  I think I might've mentioned it on a wishlist at some point.  I didn't think it would actually happen!

Saga '02-'04 / Re: 6 Deluxe heading our way 2004
« on: September 26, 2003, 04:23 PM »
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
HOTH WAVE
___  General Rieekan with tactical plot
___  Wampa with tauntaun bone & base
TATOOINE WAVE
___  C-3PO with escape pod
JABBA'S PALACE WAVE
___  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.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: New Line has license for 'The Hobbit'
« on: September 26, 2003, 03:14 PM »
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.
