It's still possible to get the Luke & Leia set and the Han & Chewy set at a pretty cheap price at KayBee.  The Vader & Ben set is tougher though.

Oh, and the Sox players with the Lilly things on their jackets were the picture of classy baseball?  Please.

It really sickens me to see this happen.  I was at Chicago, and the crowd around the Gentle Giant booth was like a rugby scrum.  And after going through that...I"M NOT PARTING WITH MINE.  It was too much trouble and too much hassle to get to just get rid of it for the money.  I don't need the money that bad.

I like the Nets.  I'll go ahead and say that I'm a casual fan, and I only got into them after they traded Stefan Marbury for Jason Kidd.

The biggest question I have is how is Alonzo Mourning going to fit into their game.  It should be interesting.

I also get the feeling that they may make some kind of move soon, since they're on the verge of releasing Dikembe Mutumbo.

Well, if there was a Sox-Cubs World Series, somehow I think both teams would find a way to lose.  Seriously.

The test starts tomorrow night.  The biggest question for me is who's starting game one for Boston.  I'm pretty secure in the Yanks starting pitching after the Division Series.  Most people are saying either Wakefiled or Burkett.  Well, the Yanks have rocked both of them on a number of occassions.  I see this being a 5 or 6 game series.

As for the National League, I'm pulling for the Cubbies.  But once it gets to the World Series, if the Yanks are still in it, I think everyone knows where my loyalties lie.

Yeah, I got laid off from a job in 1999.  Just in time for The Phantom Menace, in fact.

What did I do?  Well, I knew that it was coming.  So, I started planning, and I was talking with people before it even happened.  I let them know what was happening, and some were sympathetic and offered some freelance work.  I kept on developing contacts and got more work, and also lived off some of the severance package.  I was lucky in that the company owed me half a year's pay.  It helped during the lean times.  And so, I kept on developing contacts.  Some led to more freelance work.  And eventually, it led to the staff job that I have now.

Layoffs aren't the end of the world.  Especially if a company isn't financially healthy.  And, it could lead to a potentially bigger and better job.  That's what happened in my case.

I'm kinda surprised that the Twins didn't pinch hit for Doug Mankiewicz against Rivera.  He's killer against lefties.

From the images I've seen, the head on the Marvel Legends 3 maskless Wolverine is different from the one that comes in the X-Men set.  I've been trying to find an image of one, but can't right now.

So, has there been any word about followup shipments of the 2-packs?  I've only seen one instance of these shipping to WalMarts in my area.

I found the Armored Troll at TRU today. It's in a blue box, and it isn't packed like the first Troll. This has a window box instead of an open one.

Well, I guess they did that so people wouldn't pull this troll's face off.  As for the scene at the black gate of Mordor, I can only wonder when someone might make a crazy diorama with the two gate trolls.

But, it's figures like this that make me wonder:  if they can make the cave troll, Treebeard, and the gate trolls, why can't they make the Balrog?

Morg, you might try this Canadian etailer:  They've got a pretty decent selection.

Scott, how do you like the X-Men set?  Are the semi-reissues cool sculpts?  I'm curious about Beast, Wolvie and Gambit.
