THX is a good guy who I have traded with in the past at another site.  Don't be worried about trading or purchasing from him.

Find out which bands are turning your children gay.

Hmm...Elton John and Indigo Girls must turn you super gay since they are on the list twice.

Metallica is a surprise...I mean they've turned into huge wusses over the past decade and a half, but not gay.

I got that e-mail as well, but at the same time I got 3 shipping confirmations. 1 i know is for Legolas, but i have no idea what the other 2 are. Could Jabba and probe droids already shipped?

Edit:

I just got the e-mail for the throne.  ;D

I got both the Jabba and throne emails as well.  I guess we'll probably see Boushh in a few days.  I believe Sideshow's motto should be, When it rains, it pours.  Makes more sense then the salt company.

No, not even long time fans I think saw this coming! That was totally from left field! I mean all we saw of Paul Crane was that he was one of the jugglers directing President Logan on what to do! But that's it, nothing to even hint that he was Jack's brother.

I have watched every season and I was still like holy **** when Jack called him.  My wife had forgotten who the guy was from last season so she didn't understand why I was freaking out about it.

Missed Sunday night's opener because our power went out 15 minutes before 8pm and was out for almost two hours.

They had a commercial on Monday saying that they would sell the first four hours on DVD starting yesterday.  Kind of a pain to have to go pay for a disc, but that is an option if you really need to see it.

Today (January 17th) at 12 PM EST, the Luke Episode V blaster goes up for presale for $499.  From the pictures it is pretty similar in style to the second version of Han's blaster that MR did.  CS members get 10% on all order if you have signed up for 2007 membership.

Oil continues to drop - now to an 18 month low.

But gas prices are holding steady around 2.20, a full .20 more than they were 4 or 5 months ago, when oil cost about 6 or 7 dollars per barrel more.

What's the deal?!

Wouldn't it be actually nice if it worked the way it should?  Raw materia prices drop, and end product prices drop, but I'm still stuck at the $2.25 to $2.40 price point in Delaware.  I think the gas companies have been cut way too many breaks and are getting away with charging whatever they want.  Oil prices drop by dollars a barrel and gas prices stay virtually unchanged.  However, if the oil prices go up a nickel, gas prices go up two dimes.

Today (January 10th at 9 AM PST) is preorder day for the next Clone Trooper helmet and Yoda FX saber.  I believe Amy is doing trivia in the forums prior to the preorder time.

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.

I actually sold a few items and finally gone through my collection to decide which figures I need upgrades on, thus the update.

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.
