I can get it for $9.99 + tax + shipping.  LMK.

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.

I was at another Yankee game yesterday, and we broke out the brooms, sweeping the Orioles for a second time.  Man, does that team need pitching!  But I've got to admit, Baltimore has a serious lineup with Tejada, Palmeiro and Lopez hitting 3-4-5, but the guy who was really impressive?  Melvin Mora!  This guy is hitting .380, and he was 2-4 yeasterday with a couple of good hits!  It figures that the Mets would let this guy go.  And the only ball to get jacked was courtesy of Javy Lopez.  Drat!

The Yanks looked good, but a lot of guys had the day off as it was a day game right after a night game.  Bernie Williams had most of the game off until the 7th.  Sheffield was DH-ing.  Posada had the day off.  Giambi is still recuperating.  But all in all, the Yanks pulled off a good win with a somewhat unorthodox lineup.  NICE!

Is Ogden the first Offensive lineman?

YES.  At first I thought the silhouette they showed of the OL was Larry Allen.  I was a little surprised to see that it was Ogden, but not so much now.

Most of the NFL SP's have been either QB's or RB's.  Wide Receivers come next, and after them it's Defensive players and there are a couple of Tight Ends.  Also, we get our first kicker ever this year in the form of Adam Vinatierri.

On an unrelated note, can you guys keep an eye out for me for an MLB retro figure?  It's confirmed that MLB10 has a retro Yankees Pettite.  Can anyone lend a brother a hand and try to snag me one of these?

I'm curious to see what they end up doing with the packin figures for the ESB Slave I and the new Y-Wing.  Is there going to be a Fett included (I haven't seen pictures; and if so which one?), and who is included with the Y-Wing?  A Gold Leader from the Saga line?

There hasn't been any word of pack-ins with these vehicles thus far.  I'm planning on putting my Gold Leader figure in the new Y-Wing, and either a Pit of Carkoon or VOTC Boba Fett in the new Slave I.

Let's not forget too that $60 is Diamond's price.  When it gets to comic and hobby shops, it will probably increase by a few dollars as well so they can make a profit on the item beyond what Diamond charges them to order it.

Actually, $60 is suggested retail.  Meaning that Diamond dealers will be getting this at wholesale.  Their cost could be anywhere from $30 to $40.  I get discounts on Gentle Giant things all the time from my local comic shop around 10%.  I should be able to get the Sandcrawler from my guy for $50 -  $55.  Check with your own local comic shop.  No doubt, this will be listed in the new issue of Diamond's Prviews magazine soon, and your local shop will be able to order it for you.  That's what I'll be doing.

I'm not thrilled about the price, but there is a thing called "PERSPECTIVE".  Perspective tells me that while $60 is in the high end pricewise in the modern era of Star Wars toys, it's not that bad.  Why?  A vintage Sandcrawler, loose, will cost anywhere from $150 to nearly $300 depending on whether or not it's complete and what kind of condition it's in.  Bearing that in mind, $60 is a bargain to me.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Jedi Council sets 3 & 4

The set looks really nice put together.  I'm curious about a couple of things:

First, which Saesee Tiin did they use?  I'm sincerely hoping it's the Clone Wars sculpt with articulated legs, no gloves and intact horn.  That's a great figure, and this would prove to be a definitive version of the character.

Coleman Trebor seems to be in the dark.  Perhaps intentionally.  Only time will tell on this one.

Then there's the Stass Allie/Adi Gallia issue.  I think Adi Gallia is the seated one, and Stass Allie is standing.  This would be good since we already have a standing Adi Gallia, and I don't recall seeing Stass Allie actually in the Jedi Council chamber.  This is a wait and see situation for me.
