Oh, god!  I don't understand why my Yankees would pursue Armando Benitez!  I think my chances of suffering a heart attack have just gone up exponentially.  :(

I hope he blows as many games for the Yankees as he did for the Mets.

Well, that changed rather quickly.  Frankly, I can't understand why Seattle agreed to take Benitez.

And alas, the Red Sox don't seem to have enough gas in the tank to win the AL East.  They're 7-1/2 games back in the division.  AND, they're 2 games back in the Wild Card.  They really need to turn it on if they're going to catch Oakland.

But, my Yanks appear to be on the verge of winning yet another AL East title.  I just hope the starting pitching can hold up, and Boone breaks out of his slump.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Trooper Multi Packs
« on: August 20, 2003, 10:34 PM »
The count so far seems to be:

Clone Wars 3-packs
Kneeling, Standing, Prone (white/clean)
Kneeling, Standing, Prone  (blue standing)
Kneeling, Standing, Prone (green kneeling)
Binoculars, Kneeling, Standing (yellow binocs)

Clone Wars Bonus Packs
Anakin with Blue
Durge with Clean
Yoda with Yellow

I feel like I'm missing a 3-pack from the list?


You've got a mix-up in the 3-packs.  Here's the 3-Pack lineup:

Standing, kneeling, prone - All white
Standing, keeling, prone - Standing blue
Standing, kneeling, prone - Prone red

Standing, kneeling, binoculars - Kneeling green
Standing, kneeling, binoculars - Binoculars yellow

I'm assuming these are all of the non-poseable variety?

I think this might actually be a repaint of the red Clone Trooper.  This seems just like the K-Mart 2-packs that were done last year.  Hopefully they don't get them.

I can't believe that people are willing to pay that much over retail.  Especially when these figures will be readily available at retail in a relatively short period of time.

Very nice work!  I like the firing chamber a lot.

Hate to be a party pooper Morg.  Check out this article with some info about Action Fleet from WWC:

Looks like I should check in here.   I've been checking out some condo's with a local realtor, and the whole thing is frightening, to say the least!  Living in the NY tri-state area is not all it's cracked up to be, especially when it comes to real estate.

Emmitt, according to today's sports update at the Spawn boards, will be the ONLY player in the 12" line to have multiple uniforms.  He'll be available as a Cardinal and as a Cowboy.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Isnt it time for a Resculpt of Ben Kenobi OT
« on: August 19, 2003, 03:20 PM »
I thought that the POTJ Ben Kenobi was pretty good.  And that only came out about 2+ years ago?  It's one of my favorites from the POTJ line.  There was also Ben from the 25th Anniversary 2-pack.  That was definitely an upgrade from the POTF2 Flashback figure.

As for how they could improve it....

Make a similar figure to the POTJ version, but with softgoods from the waist down.  Then, also give him the Jedi robes, also in softgoods.  The one that came with the SAGA Obi-Wan pilot is pretty good, so that's a starting point.

Then, package him as a Deluxe figure with the Death Star's Tractor Beam control station.  That would be a Ben Kenobi I'd be very pleased to see, and would be happy to buy.

And finally...give him his own lightsaber hilt.  My one and only gripe with the POTJ Ben is that he had Luke's lightsaber hilt attached to his belt, not his own.
