12" Figures / Re: Sideshow 12" Scum and Villainy Figures
« on: January 5, 2007, 07:09 AM »
It looks like the flood gates are opening again at SS.  Maul a few weeks ago, and now Bib and Crumb and their newsletter said the Sith Droid probe set is just around the corner.  I am surprised they haven't had a preorder for a while.

I have the new (or recard really) TSC versions of Chewbacca w/ C-3PO, Kit Fisto (Clone Wars), and Darth Maul Sith Training for sale or trade.  The are $6/each plus shipping.  I only need newer figures right now, TSC 063 and above (two of each).

Thanks for looking,
Ed Solo

The new site is up and running.  I just ordered my 2007 membership kit.  The exclusive is a mini Qui-Gon Jinn lightsaber which they are stating is going to be the only version ever made in the mini scale.  No coupons this year, but you get 10% off of all purchases made in the 2007 calendar year.  Also, the old coupon codes are good till the end of March.  You sort have to resign up...seemed more of an update to me.  I have used just about all of my coupon codes, but they come up as available when I checked them.  Not sure if they would work or not.

To me, it looks like you took the time to attempt to fix the items (which most retailers would charge you big $'s for).  The seller didn't make the effort so it is really his loss.  I would see it the same way as going to a flea market and find a bunch of last 17 vintage figures in great shape for only $1 each.  Would you tell the seller that they could sell these for $100's on ebay or offer to pay them more for them?

I think an unbreakable vow with Dumbledore is out of the question.  Dumbledores very nature is that he is/was very trusting.  I can't see any circumstance where he would put someone in a position to keep a promise or die.

With Snape, Rowling always makes us think incorrectly about him.  In the first book, it looked like he was after the stone, but turns out to be good instead.  In GoF it looks like he and Karkarov may be up to no good, but it wasn't the case.

His training Harry while fleeing the school may be more misdirection, espicially if he is playing both sides.  However, I think Rowling is writing him to be good, probably due to the fact he was in love with Lily and he can't forgive Voldemort for killing her.

Anybody receive their Falcon yet?  I just got my shipping notice I am wondering who is actually shipping this item.  The tracking number was four letters which does not corrispond to any shipping company that I know of.

I read over on RS that Phillip received his by DHL.

I called MR yesterday and they were supposed to call/email me a real tracking number, but I still haven't heard anything as of yet.

Which, like I said in my previous post, Snape will become the new Headmaster of Hogwarts!! It won't be Minerva, she's getting on in years. There's no other professor that can handle the position. Snape was trusted completely by Dumbledore, and I bet he left something behind for Snape to carry out his last wish and take over as Headmaster!

After the way book 6 ended?  I find that highly unlikely.  I thought that Snape took off after he killed Dumbeldore.  I think that it's likely that if he's playing the double agent, then he'll see things through that he might get close to Voldemort for book 7.  And I can see Professor McGonagall taking over Hogwart's for that book.

The one thing that keeps coming back to me is Sirius Black.  Somehow I don't think he died in the Department of Mysteries.  I think he's going to be back in book 7.

Don't forget wizards have longer life spans than muggles.  McGonagall is supposed to be roughly half Dumbledore's age (75 and 150) and he was still pretty spry up until the end.

I'm sure Snape will turn out to be good at the end, but I hope it is more of a he is out for himself thing.  He will help Harry defeat Voldemort because Snape wants to be the next Dark Lord.  I think it would make more sense than Snape killing the most powerful wizard for the good side just to keep his cover with Voldemort.

I keep hearing that TiVo cuts off shows so I never purchased one.  I also haven't gotten around to buying a DVR so I still use my VCR to tape TV shows when I'm going to miss them.

I thought it was a really good movie.  I, too, was skeptical about Craig as Bond, but I think he pulled off a "younger" Bond pretty well.  I heard the next one is supposed to be a true sequel to this movie.

I assume they modernized the movie a bit with the Texas Hold'em.  Since I have played poker, it was easy to call the two big hands though.
