Well, people around here have just been scooping up as many of these sets as possible.  A bunch of KayBee stores near me got them, and the value packs have just flown out the doors.  I've only seen them once at retail thus far.  And I've never seen the ARC Trooper on my own.  It's kind of depressing, honestly.  I think either the scalpers are back into Star Wars (after laying off us during 2002), or there's an overabundance of army builders around here.  It's made getting these and the Clone Trooper 3-packs near impossible.

Whoa! Gotta get that!  I wonder if they might make basic versions of Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding to add on, hehehehe!

I definitely would be all for it if they'd do another few sets.  And do them with only two figures each.  Maybe lineups like this:


SET 3
-Yoda standing
-Ki-adi Mundi seated (with softgoods and bendable knees)


SET 4
-Plo Koon seated (with softgoods and bendable knees)
-Adi Gallia seated (with softgoods & bendable knees)


SET 5
-Eeth Koth seated (with softgoods, cloak & bendable knees)
-Saesee Tiin seated (with softgoods & bendable knees)


SET 6
-Shaak Ti seated (with softgoods & bendable knees)
-Coleman Trebor seated (with softgoods, cloak & bendable knees)


And then, do a followup Depa Billaba down the line with softgoods, cloak & bendable knees.

Maybe if they made the wall sections of the War Chamber it would be cool to have these characters in a Screen Scene.  Perhaps with a piece that attaches to Wat Tambor's base?

It take 6 Council segments to make the complete council.  That's according to Hasbro.

There's Passel Argente's aide, Denaria Kee.



Sun Fac, who is Poggle The Lesser's aide.




Qi Zhu, who is Shu Mai's aide




And there's also this shaggy looking alien sitting at the Seperatist council table who I don't know the name of.  Or what species it is.

When we get into the 2006 - 2007 area, they might consider doing softgoods articulated versions to fill out the line.  Give it time.

I've been seeing the green boxed Arwen with Asfaloth and wounded Frodo showing up at Target again recently.  Strange, if you ask me.  That, along with the FOTR reissues have been showing up at KayBee as well.

A Sox-Cubs World Series would be the greatest thing for Baseball since the Sammy/McGwire deal a few years back

I am sorta sickened by all of the band wagon Cubs fans I am seeing though, that is what I will give some nods towards the East Coast, you guys are far more passionate about sports and don't cheer for the flavor of the month like the rest of the country seems to (ESPECIALLY LA!)

SHould be an interesting few weeks and hopefully we don't have to ban a few members over their passions ;) :-* (That was not a threat BTW, only joking)

Well, the Cubs have been on in a lot of television markets for years, so there are some Cubs fans scattered around the US.  I think a lot of people are just so happy to see them in the playoffs.  Add in the mystique of Wrigley field, the stalwart Cubs fans who have stood by them for years, and a couple of the best starting pitchers in baseball in the form of Kerry Wood and Mark Prior PLUS Sammy Sosa, and you've got a storybook setting.  That's why I think a lot of people love the Cubs.

Now, I'd love to see the Cubs make it to the series.  And that's where my love would end.  Because if the Yankees are in the series too, well I'm cheering for the team that I started watching in the late '70's.  But, it would also be known as the Holy Cow! World Series.  Too bad Harry Carey isn't around to see this!  Thankfully, the Scooter still is.

Can you say Destiny? ;D  

Go Sox!!!!!!!!  

BTW, Yankees still SUCK!
If destiny is the case, then the Cubs will probably win.  They're definitely more due.  Maybe the Red Sox fans can wait another ten years.  Just as long as the Cubs.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: As expected... PEGWARMERS!
« on: October 9, 2003, 01:08 PM »
We're just finally getting better than average stocking levels on the Clone Wars line in the NY metro area.  It remains to be seen if the basic figures will be pegwarmers.  As for the army builder sets, they definitely made too many of the Destroyer Droid launchers.  That is definitely a pegwarmer.

The platform hangs over the edges of the POTF2 platform a little, but it holds in place.  I've had it sitting there for some time now.  Plus, the grappling hook will attach to the overhead bar.

As for the Yanks rocking Wakefield this season I seem to recall the Sox rocking Clemens, Wells and Mussina at least once each as well.

And Pettite too the last time he started against the Sox.

And its not as quite as lopsided as Nick thinks it is:

copied verbatim from todays Boston Globe

(Stats are against opposing team this year for each probable starter)

Mussina, 0-0, 3.04ERA, 23 2/3 IP, 13H, 7BB, 19K, .163Avg.
Pettitte, 3-1, 5.04ERA, 25IP, 25H, 4BB, 28K, .250 Avg.
Clemens, 2-3, 8.67ERA, 27IP, 28H, 9BB, 24K, .328Avg.
Wells, 2-1, 3.91ERA, 25 1/3IP, 31H, 9BB, 15K, .292Avg.

Wakefield, 2-2, 3.96ERA, 25IP, 20H, 13BB, 17K, .217Avg.
Lowe, 2-0, 5.55ERA, 24 1/3IP, 32H, 9BB, 9K, .317Avg.
Martinez, 1-1, 3.80ERA, 23 2/3IP, 25H, 5BB, 33K, .266Avg.
Burkett, 0-1, 3.27ERA, 11IP, 13H, 6BB, 6K, .289Avg.

Slight edge to the Yanks, but in no way lopsided.



What, you forgot to mention the game where Mussina was ONE PITCH away from a perfect game against to Red SoX?  For shame!

Hey, I spotted a ROTK packaged Aragorn/Gimli/Legolas 3-pack at a local comic shop.  It was priced too high there, but does anyone know if this is coming out to mass retail?

I'm also hoping at some point that the King Elendil - Gilgallad 2-pack from FOTR sees the light of day at some point.  Anyone ever see a picture of it?  And for that matter, what about a figure of Isildur?

Well, these sets are pretty cool if you're making a Death Star diorama.  The Luke & Leia fit somewhat awkwardly on the POTF2 lightbridge playset.  That's kinda cool.
