Congrats OCB and family!  

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: New Line has license for 'The Hobbit'

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.

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?

Of course, I want to see the Yanks back in the series.  Been a fan since I was 4.

As for the National League, I'd like to see the Cubs.  For whatever reason, I just like them.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: First Look at Jabba at GH
« on: September 23, 2003, 01:43 PM »
Here's my two cents on the Jabba Glob, and I'll keep it at that:

It's not a bad sculpt.  The sculpt is probably one of the better Jabba sculpts that was done.  I only had problems with the paint job (not quite there, but almost), the mouth, the material it was made from, and the marketing (they really could've marketed the item better than they did).  This Jabba looks much more like the Jabba we knew in ROTJ than any other release.  The only other one that comes close in appearance is the Jabba with two-headed announcer, and that's plagued by an action gimmick.

As it is now, my Jabba's palace scene has a Jabba glob in it, with the vintage dais.  I will just wait and see on this new version, and decide when I see it.
