The Prequel Trilogy / Re: *Spoiler* About Anakin's birth...
« on: February 2, 2005, 10:46 PM »
The whole story of Darth Plagueis certainly leads you to believe that Sidious may have had some "influence" in Anakin's conception.  I think this is one thing we're going to have to wait and see in the movie.

He does have spoiler features.  I'm surprised they're putting him out right away, actually.

Does anyone think Sosa with the O's gives them any better shot at catching the Yanks or BoSox (or even Toronto)?  Anyone think Sosa will ever hit more than 45 HR again (corked bat and 'roids not withstanding)?  :-\



Nope.  I saw the O's play the Yanks plenty of times last season, and it was their pitching that was their weakness.  They put up a lot of hits, but their pitching didn't keep them in it.  The O's need at least 2 good starters and someone good in their bullpen to be contenders.

That showboat comes out of retirement and gets a figure.  Why?

Hmmm... I'm getting a bad feeling that the biggest vehicle will be the Gunship.   :(

 :P

Probably not.  Hasbro has always spaced out vehicle releases in the movie years.  I don't see why they wouldn't do the same this year.  I think they held back for a little while before releasing the Naboo Royal Starship in 1999.

The 2-packs definitely look intriguing.  They almost remind me of the way McFarlane presents their Sports Picks 2-packs.  Those and the Deluxe figures look interesting to me.  I'm surprised to not see any vehicles though.  Hmmm.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Basic Figure Leak: Already?
« on: January 28, 2005, 05:04 PM »
I can see something like this happening, but it would be a freak occurrence.  I could see a case getting mislabeled or a case of Collection 1 being mistakenly put on a pallette with cases of Preview figures, but it would definitely be an anomoly.

I actually got about a dozen of the SAGA figures early in 2002.  The store (Boscovs, an east coast department store chain) left them in a box that was wide open on the floor off the toy section.  This was about a week to 10 days before the street date.

Figures have actually been leaking for some time.  Hasbro employees get them early, and they've been trading with other toy industry insiders.  But for figures to show up at retail?  That is definitely strange.

Oh man oh man oh man!  I might be adding one of the more odd Star Wars actor autographs to my collection.  From who?  Why, the surly cantina bartender from the Star Wars Holiday Special, none other than Bea Arthur!  WOOT!

JD Sports Forum! / Re: Super Bowl XXXIX New England vs Philadelphia

Roethlisberger's gonna take a lot of the heat, and that isn't fair considering our pass coverage was non-existant tonight (Brady had his pick of downfield throws it seemed), and a lot of the plays were botched at times by receivers.

Roethlisberger did fine for a rookie.  Seriously, for a rookie QB to get his team that far is quite an achievement.  Pittsburgh was really built on running the ball, and the receivers didn't get that much love this year.  It'll be interesting to see how the Steelers retool for next year.

Now since I have no love for the Eagles (Giants fan here), GO PATS!
