Others have managed, but it's in how they market it.  The Tonnika sisters are the Tonnika sisters...  I dunno how Hasbro would get around that I guess and the actresses probably have that cornered.

The Tonnika Sisters are not the Tonnika sisters. Those names did not exist when A New Hope was released, they were created by West End Games. As such the marketing doesn't have to say that the figures created are from the Cantina scene, just background characters from the SW universe. Easy to get around I think, I just don't think Hasbro is really interested in making 2 female characters who were on screen for about 2 seconds, that's what it all comes down to.

I think it might have to do with their original "working names" from the movie:  Star whores.  That would put me off from making toys of them.

How much was Suncoast charging?  This is the first I've heard of them actually carrying Gentle Giant product.

Okay, so now I got thinking about who I have on my JD FFL team that have Sports Picks.  Here goes:

QB, Marc Bulger    (STL) - NOPE
QB, Joey Harrington (DET) - YES
WR, Randy Moss    (MIN) - YES - 2 x 6"(one of which is from the no-helmet period) and 1 x 12"
WR, Reggie Wayne    (IND) - NOPE
WR, Roy Williams    (DET) - NOPE (rookie)
WR, Ike Hilliard    (NYG) - NOPE
WR, Johnnie Morton  (KCC) - NOPE
RB, Marshall Faulk    (STL) - YES - 2 x 6" (one from the no-helmet era & one retro Colts)
RB, Quentin Griffin    (DEN) - NOPE
RB, Mike Alstott    (TB) - YES
RB, Musa Smith   (BAL) - NOPE
TE, Todd Heap    (BAL) - NOPE
TE, Daniel Graham    (NE) - NOPE
K, Adam Vinatieri    (NE) - ON THE WAY!  The first Kicker ever in Sports Picks

Only 5 SP worthy players?  I might be in trouble.

It was Mosnab's turn, Then Dressel - was this Dressel's pick or were you just picking out of turn on accident?

Then it's Holo Elvis after Dressel.

I've gone ahead and added Kevin and Mosnab's picks to the list - It's Dressel's turn now.

I don't really agree with having someone "inside".  The buzz has subsided somewhat on Sports Picks, and through patience and trading (big props to Nataku & Morgbug here), I've managed to complete my chase collection for NFL8.  Now I only have to get regular versions of Holt and Brown.  In fact, the most I've paid is cost plus shipping recently.  Heck, I've even been passing up on variants I already have when I see them.

I've encountered the same thing with the Cooperstown series.  I do a little legwork, and a little trading, and I've got all the pieces I want.  I'm only missing Robinson at this point, but that's a minor point.  And once again, I've only paid retail cost in this instance.

I think having a good trading network is definitely a lot more valuable than an "inside".  I'll slowly but surely pick up all of NFL 9.  It'll take a little while, but I'm pretty confident that I'll have the entire series variants by the time NFL10 comes out.  This is after seriously considering buying a whole case from Killertoys and then deciding not to.

I arrived home this evening to find a package from none other than Nataku.  Everything got here safe and sound, and he does an excellent job of packing by the way!

Thanks again for the deal, and thanks once again for being understanding with the situation we discussed.

Au contraire, mon frere!

Johnnie Morton, WR, Chiefs

Sorry for the holdup, all.  Had a bunch of things to do on my way home.

Series 9 looks like a decent lineup.  Thing is, as this line goes on, I've become pickier about which figures I buy.  I've decided to skip Cable.  He's just not a character that I care for, and he's also from a period just after I got out of comics.

Gray Hulk is one I've excited about, even if it's the first incarnation of gray Hulk.  I actually really liked it when they brought the gray Hulk back when they fused the savage Hulk and Banner.  War Machine is cool, too.  He's definitely a discreet character from Iron Man, even if he is from the Iron Man storyline.  Nightcrawler is a welcome addition, too.  Add in the Professor X chase, and I like the series.  The rest of the characters....well, I'm indifferent about them.

Predictions, huh?

AFC East - Patriots
AFC North - Baltimore (provided Jamal Lewis stays out of JAIL)
AFC South - Colts
AFC West - Chiefs

NFC East - Giants (I just can't pick against them or my head would explode)
NFC North - What a crapshoot.  I'm going out on a limb, but I'm gonna say Lions.  They have SO MANY offensive weapons that I think they might turn some heads.
NFC South - Panthers
NFC West - Seahawks.

Yeah.  You can even drop some of the guys you picked earlier if you find someone you want instead of them.

WR, Reggie Wayne    (CAR)      

Just a minor point...Reggie Wayne is on the Colts
