Someone mentioned this possibility to me:  Rams Bettis.  It's not out of the realm of possibility, and that would give us the cool, old-school Rams uni.  There's also Curtis Martin, another former Pat.

It looks as though there might be some more repaints in this series other than Bledsoe.  The assortment is kind of light as things stand now.  Anyone want to venture a guess about some of the others?

I think these are possible:

-Black Jersey McNabb
-Giants Warner
-Raiders Sapp
-Redskins Brunell
-Eagles T.O.
-Browns Garcia

The only one I could come close to guessing a price for would be the Sail Barge.  It would probably be a pretty sizable box, at least as big as the EPISODE I Fambaa box.  I'd pay $80 tops.

With the others, it really depends on how it's done.  There are obvious constraints on doing the Death Star and Cloud City.  It would really depend on how large it is.

Let's see.  Only three, huh?

Mos Eisley Cantina
-Obi-Wan Kenobi - Cantina Fight
-Hem Dazon
-Bom Vimdim
-SA Sandtrooper (orange pauldron)

Battle Of Hoth
-Luke Skywalker - Snowspeeder Pilot w/ removable helmet, grappling hook, lightsaber, blaster w/ holster, limpet mine
-General Veers w/ removable armor, hat & holographic Darth Vader
-AT-AT Driver resculpt
-Major Bren Derlin

Death Star 2
-Moff Jerjerrod
-Imperial Dignitary Sim Aloo
-Luke Skywalker - Thone Room w/ manacles
-Emporer Palpatine w/ throne accessory

You do realize that the warning sticker is on the clamshell, not on the card....right?

I saw the R2 in person recently.  I am not impressed.  Why is Hasbro insistent on putting electronics in an R2-D2 when they don't even have the correct sensor eye lighting up red?  It's ridiculous.  Hasbro should be using the CommTech R2-D2 mold, and not much else aside from different paint jobs and accessories.  This one just looks like the first EPISODE II version that's been dunked in dookie.

I saw Han Solo, Leia and Obi-Wan Kenobi in person today.  They look really nice in person and in package.  Too bad they were priced too high for me to consider.

They haven't released a pic of the new Randy Moss yet.  Where did you see that?

Nice additions Nataku!  I wish I had thought of Ak-Rev with the drum.  I thought about the Wookiee senator with the Senate Pod, but I thought that might be more like a small vehicle than an accessory.

Yeah, the Hulk and X-Men lines died a quick death.  Too bad for the Hulk line, since there were a few good things in the mix.  I'm kind of disappointed that they didn't make a decent grey Hulk other than Joe Fixit.  While that's a notable part of the grey Hulk's saga, I kind of liked the period right after the grey Hulk re-ermerged.  Especially the issue where he fought Wolverine.  I hope they at least revisit that incarnation of the Hulk in Marvel Legends.  As cool as the Marvel Select grey Hulk is, I don't think it's a good rendering of the Hulk from the period I'm mentioning.

Well, I'm gonna list them with the figures I think they should come with...

Holographic Darth Sidious with walking holo-projector
Nute Gunray seated on walking chair

Supreme Chancellor Palpatine with chair, desk & holographic Onacanda Farr
Clone Youth with learning station
Coleman Trebor with Jedi Council chair
Clone Trooper Commander with binoculars
more Jedi Padawans with training remotes

Owen Lars with moisture vaporator
Obi-Wan Kenobi with Tractor Beam control station
Imperial Detention Block Officer with control console
Death Star Gunner with control console
Commander Willard with Yavin base tactical plot

Toryn Farr with tactical plot
Han Solo with torture device
Darth Vader with meditation chamber

Jabba's throne
Han Solo with revamped carbonite block
Emporer's Throne with sg Emporer

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Has Anyone Built a Deck Before?

There are actually some manually operated drills/augers that you can use to dig post holes.  There are also some specialized shovels for doing that, too.  The tricky thing is this:  how deep does your town's building code require you to get your posts & concrete or cement?  The deeper you have to go, the tougher it's going to be.  Be sure you check the town's building code to get the proper depth.

As for the deck itself, I recommend nails over using screws for securing the planks to the joists.  Nails are a lot faster, whereas screws are more labor intensive.  You also might want to consider an adhesive coated nail for a more secure joint.  A pneumatic nail gun will speed this process up immensely.  If you don't have one and don't want to buy one, you can probably rent one.  You may be able to rent an auger as well.
