I do have one hope for the line...

What do folks think of something LIKE the Trophy Series, but with Action Fleet sized vehicles?   Pack it like a big Deluxe or something, with a similarly themed basic figure.  Like....

Star Destroyer with Captain Needa
Death Star with a new Tarkin
Mon Calamari ship with a new Ackbar
A-Wing repaint with a new A-Wing Pilot

Has there been any word about a Fan Club Breakfast at Chicago?  I might want to check that out.

I saw the new Batmobile today.  I can't believe they're already putting out vehicles!

Yeah, actually.  I got the two X-Men editions.  But I kept on passing on the Avengers one, and eventually missed out on that completely.

Teemto Pagalies definitely has some of the nicer accessories in the basic SAGA line.  The engine parts and salvage droid are both cool.  To the point where I bought a couple of Teemto's just for the parts!

I think Darth Vader-Bespin Duel and Luke Skywalker-Bespin Duel both have some cool accessories as well.  The gantry parts and weathervane are both cool.  The accessories for Luke Skywalker-Throne Room Duel are in my opinion BETTER than the actual figure.  The base is really nice, as is the first rendition of Luke's ROTJ lightsaber in the new style.

Other honorable mentions?  The figures with bases, notably...

Tusken Raider - Tatooine Camp Attack
Padme Amidala - Droid Factory Chase
Aayla Secura - Jedi Knight
Barriss Offee - Luminara Unduli's Padawan
Coleman Trebor
Wat Tambor
Padme Amidala - Secret Ceremony

I've heard that the Piermont Pier, just south of the Tappan Zee Bridge is a pretty good spot, too.  Ever gone for Stripers there?

I live less than ten miles from the river.  Where do you fish for Stripers?

I do own a fresh water pole and only really use when I go up to Maine.  I did catch an at least 4 lb large mouth bass on it, but since no one was with me, nobody believes me  >:(

I do wish I can go deep sea fishing more often.  I'm not in Matt's boat where I "chum" all day  ;) and just love being out in the open ocean.  One time, it was me, my father, his friend and his son, about 28 miles off the coast of Atlantic City.  We didn't catch much that day but being so far out was cool.  We did see a huge sunfish though.

Another time, same group, not as far out.  We hit a school of blues and were reeling in fish after fish.  I swear, we must have caught 200 fish that (which might be an exaggeration due to my then teenage mind, but it was quite alot of fish).  It was getting to the point where, if we caught a small fish, we'd leave it on the line and throw it back in as "bait" for larger fish.  A pretty cool day  ;D

I've had this happen too.  You run into a school of bluefish, and they're just in a feeding frenzy.  I pulled at least 13 blues out myself one time, and one was the pool winning fish of the trip.  I think that one was around 8 or 9 pounds.  And this was early in the season.  They get even bigger come October, usually about 20 pounds or so.  

Bluefish are such a good fighting fish, but they're terrible for eating.  They're really oily, and there's only a few good ways to prepare them.  If you want a good eating deepsea fish go for stripers, fluke, or flounder.  At least in the northeast, that is.

Jurassic Park III

Well, I'm gonna try scoring the last action fleet wave in Chicago this coming weekend.  That's right up there on my list.

Well, for me, obviously Star Wars is number one.  As for others?  I can't really rank them, but here they are:

Lord Of The Rings
Sports Picks (NFL, MLB & NHL)
Marvel Legends

I've gotten Plo Koon's cloak off.  Saesee Tiin's is a little stubborn though.

Hmm, I might have to see if I can find any Meijers stores on my way out to Chicago on thursday.  See if I can score one of these Red Wings three pack variants.

Put a softgoods cloak on the Mace from the Council Scene...NICE!  It's a little snug in the sleeves, but he can sit okay in it.

Also, I bought a slew of Episode I Yoda's when they were on clearance.  Mainly for the chairs.  I took off Even Piell's outer cloak, and the Yoda chair is perfect for him.

Oppo Rancisis is the toughest to get a cool pose going.  His tail isn't quite as flexible as I would've thought.  But, if you can pose it properly, it looks best wrapped around the base of the chair.  I only wish they'd made his head and torso a little bigger.  He seems a little too small there.

Next, the holo-projector in the Jedi can't tell who it is.  It's just a robed figure.  In fact, it's almost like a mini-mini version of the holographic Darth Sidious that came with Lott Dod and Count Dooku.
