Thanks!  Is it me, or does that site take forever and a day to load?

Saga '02-'04 / Re: New Hasbro Jabba Palace Announcement!!!

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.

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.

So, what do you guys think of the new Ultra set including B'Ommar Monk, Bubo & Wol Cabbashite that was announced today?  I guess Ultra figures is the new name for Deluxe, huh?

Luckily it wasn't during rush hour.  Right now, it's about 9 AM in Japan, and the quake was several hours earlier.

Now there's tsunami warnings all over the Japanese coast, and around the northern Pacific rim.

What was the rest of the case like Morg?   And btw, some nice pieces in that case you got.

Actually, there will be seven Deluxe figures for 2004.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Hold the phone--"Deluxe" Rieekan?
« on: September 24, 2003, 10:25 PM »
Hasbro stated in Chicago that Rieekan would be a Deluxe figure.  He and the Wampa are the two deluxe items from the Hoth wave.

And after seeing the figure and the tactical plot in person, I can personally vouch that it wouldn't really be a good fit on a biasic figure card.

I went as a Jedi for Halloween in 2000.  It was pretty good.

Happy birthday!  I just hit this one last year, and you know what?  It's okay being 30.

Sad to say, but probably true.  I mean, I've seen the old switcheroo in items before.  Whether it's figures that someone resealed, or Cinema Scenes that someone changed the figures on, or most recently an Imperial Forces 4-pack that was missing the AT-ST Driver, and had a Captain Typho in it's place.

I've been reading many reports of Wal-Marts across the country cutting the cards in half, so that they could sell each of the two figures individually at $5 each.  Can you believe that crap!?!?   >:(  If you see this happen in your local Wal-Marts you should complain to the store manager about that, and how you should report them to the Better Business Bureau.  That's what I would do.

It turns out that this might not be WalMart's doing.  I've heard of more incidents, and I have a theory.

Have any of the reports included findings of the Clone Troopers or the ARC Trooper from the value packs?  My guess would be no.  I can see this happening:  someone (probably an army builder) buys one complete set, but wants more of the Clone Troopers.  However, they don't want more of the Anakin's and Yoda's.  Those two figures both have the barcode on them.  So, the person who bought them might be cutting the cards, keeping the bonus Clone Troopers, and returning the Yoda's and Anakin's.  They're then getting their money back, and effectively getting the Clone Troopers for free.  PROVIDED the return clerk isn't a complete dullard, and might actually notice that something's wrong with the incomplete cardback.

Nice scam, huh?
