I just recently saw the 1:18 scale HumVee and Bradley Fighting vehicles this week.  They look impressive.  What do you guys who collect this line think of them?

BTW, if you're not able to hook up with someone for these figures, try Disney Delivers.  Their phone number is 1(407)363-6200.

Well, this is a decent idea for "openers", but if you're looking for MOMC, don't even bother with Disney Delivers.  I ordered Wave 1 from them, and they just threw my 6 figures loose in a box, with one tiny plastic Disney bag to take up the remaining space on the side.  They cards were THRASHED.  I've heard similar stories from almost everyone else who ordered through Disney as well.  But like I said, for the openers out there, this method should work fine...

But myself and Karma are always around for anyone interested in using another route...   :)  So it looks like maybe next weekend then, assuming Disneyland puts theirs out to coincide with DisneyWorld's Star Wars Weekends festivities.  I'll be on the lookout folks!

Quite true!  I ordered two sets of waves1 & 2; one to open, and one to keep MOMC.  I was disappointed with the shipping.  All of the figures were tossed into a plastic bag randomly, and then put into a box stuffed with packing material.  The cards in most cases were bent.  I opened the worst of the bunch.  Four of the remaining carded samples were in excellent shape.  Another two were bent, but not creased.  I was able to work the bends out by keeping those in Star Cases.

So, it's caveat emptor for you carded folks!

Thanks for offer Morgbug, I appreciate it!  I'm gonna pass, though.  I've scaled back on getting the variants unless it's a player I really want, or it's an NFL player, or something from the older series' that I missed.  I think I'm going to completely skip MLB4.  I'm still on the fence about a couple of them.  I'm pretty much waiting for MLB5 to get back into things.

One thing I am doing to help things is ordering cases.  At least for the NFL line.  I already pre-ordered a case of NFL6 from, and I'll be pre-ordering a case of NFL7, also.  It helps with the variants.  You get at least one per case, and sometimes 2 per case.  Plus, you don't have to worry as much about the shortpacked figures.  As for the excess, I'm just going to trade or sell those off at cost + shipping.

My country/province/territory list isn't nearly as impressive as the number of states I've been through.



The Bahamas (part of the British Commonwealth, I think)
-Paradise Island

US Virgin Islands
-St. Croix
-St. Thomas

I primarily collect the NFL line.  I get scattered pieces from the NHL and MLB lines.  It's ususally dependent upon me liking the player, or the player being from a NY area team.  I don't collect the NBA line at all, and won't be getting any of the NASCAR pieces, either.

What is the name of Supreme Chancellor Valorum's female aide?

Episode 1 / Re: The Original "Midnight Madness"
« on: May 9, 2003, 11:23 AM »
I admit I was roped in by Midnight Madness.  At least the hype.  I didn't attend, but I was certainly curious.  I had only gotten mildly back into collecting the previous year when I bought some Action Fleet pieces.  This, after my Star Wars hiatus from 1984 to 1998!

So, instead of attending Midnight Madness (I had to work the next day at 6 AM!), I went after work.  I decided "You know what?  These are kinda cool.  I'm going to get some figures".

So, I got Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Anakin, Darth Sidious, Palpatine, and Queen Amidala.  Then, I asked one of the guys at the store "Do you have any more Darth Maul's?"  He disappears for a couple of minutes, and brings one back to me.  And that's how this mess all started for me, all over again!

I've heard that the cartoon is coming out in November.  I'm thinking possibly July or August for the Clone Wars toy lines.

A friend of mine has gone to this show religiously for the past several years.  Both of us went to the Wizard World Show in Philadelphia, which was a substantial show.  He informed me that the show in Chicago was easily double the size of the Philly show, if not bigger.
