I know, some of you non-American folks are writhing in pure ecstasy, getting to watch the U.S. collectors squirm at lack of availability for once!  So enjoy the show fellas...   :-*

If you're patient, she will come...   8)

You got that right, Bub.   ;D  No offense meant, it's just nice to have company for once. :-*

I think US retail is $9.99 depending on the store (TRU cheaper, collector shops more?)

Nice stuff, still haven't found the other predator though.

Yes and no Scott.  The Canadian economy is not showing the same slow down that the US economy is.  Our dollar has climbed 13 cents relative to the US greenback.  

Just a thought, but of course it doesn't counter that distribution in Canada always sucks, unless a movie has been or will be released within 2 months. :o

I traded a toy fair vader for mine.  Keep in mind, I got my TFV for retail from the fan club (wizards) so it was a reasonable deal.  Vader was already fetching higher prices on ebay, but around that time this piece was running in the $80 range.  I'm happy with the trade.

I'll try.  

I don't mind participating in an existing thread if it warrants, but I'm not comfortable with creating a new discussion about Paizo myself; it's a little too close to unsolicited commercial posting for my comfort.

I watched this board for a couple of weeks before I decided that I had something to say that everybody would want to hear.


Fair enough.  I'll start a thread over there, you feel free to join in if you like.  I appreciate your point regarding unsolicited advertising, however, this is the fan club, something we are all supposed to want to be part of, so I think the rules are a little different.  Regardless, I'll respect your point of view and if you choose to comment, great, if not, no worries at all.

Please explain 'Junebug', I am intrigued.

My ranking is the same essentially as everyone else's.  

ANH (I believe this movie was called Star Wars or something to the effect)
ROTJ (only because of the Luke/Vader/Emperor scenes that saved it from being an abomination - damn Ewoks)

I'm just wondering where you Ewok anti's are for that unleashed thread though.  What, three comments in here at least and not one of you has the gumption to protest thhe Unleashed Ewok ::) ;)

I'll stick my neck out and say I have faith in the Senators.  It's the hot goalie that wins, so I may be dead wrong on this one, given Brodeur is playing well.  The Sens have a lot of guns though and are only up 2-1.  Sens win today and it's back to home ice advantage.  

We shall see.

as a member of a Canadian Star Wars board, might I be so bold as to extend to you an invitation to post at that board?  The site is called Snowtroopers and can be found here Snowtroopers.  The main page is found at

I believe a whole lot of fellow Canuckleheads may be suffering from the same misconceptions as I am/was.  A brief explanation over there about how Paizo will operate.  I know the folks that run that site would be more than pleased to see you there.

Greetings Vic, thank you for the response to my comments.  I'm pleased you took the time to address those points I brought up.  It was indeed an unexpectedly pleasant surprise.  

The price is $28.95 USD for the US, and $39.95 USD for Canada.  At today's exchange rate, that's $55.25 CAD.  I wish it could be lower, but the Canadian Postal Service doesn't let us take  advantage of the special magazine postage rate that the US Post Office offers.
Thank you for a reasonable explanation.  An $11 premium is something I can (well, have to) live with, given I live in Canada.  As opposed to some organizations (hello, KB?) I am pleased to see that the fan club recognizes Canada is not on another planet (excuse the little side jab).

You're talking about the Official e-commerce site run by Wizards of the Coast - their license allows them to sell items to members and non-members alike.  However, the Fan Club is now run by Paizo Publishing.  Items on our site ( are available to Fan Club Members only.

Well there you go.  Now, here's my challenge to you as the new "owners" of the fan club.  Offer me enough from the fan club, that I can get no where else and I'll not only join, but also renew my membership in future.  You'll see my membership shortly given the scenario that I face with the Silver Fett.  Inevitably, it will be cheaper for me to join the fanclub than to head off to the secondary, non-collector market to get the Fett.  But I will be watching you in the future ;)

For those of you who have reservations about joining the Fan Club because of past experience, please be aware that it's under new management, and we've been working hard to make it the best it has ever been.  We've brought back the membership kit for the first time in years; we brought back Bantha Tracks quarterly for members only; we've increased the amount of collecting content in the magazine, including a regular "Toybox" column, where, this month, Hasbro's Andy Espenshade revealed the first photo of the Unleashed Boba Fett.  We've been working hard to deliver more fan interactivity, which you'll read about soon right here at  We hear every day that the Insider is better than ever, and we're working to make it even better than that.

And a good start that is.  Hopefully this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship ;D

Comfortably Numb.  

Zeppelin is also very, very cool.  Another band that I own pretty much all the albums for.  Well, used to own the albums (and even a couple of 8 tracks) but now CDs.  We were all set to see Zeppelin in Minneapolis back in 1980 and then Bonham went and died.   :-[

Floyd, Zeppelin and Metallica dominate the drawer of cd's at work. :)

The last two vinyl albums I got rid of were the soundtrack to The Wall, that included two extra songs (The Day the Tigers Broke Free and one other, the title I cannot remember).  The first song has since been released on a Floyd disc, the latter has not.  The other disc was the more familiar version of the wall with the white bricks but it was a Japanese master disc, I believe I paid around $50 for.  Gave them both to a friend with similar appreciation for Floyd but greater love of vinyl.

Is anyone else out there a huge fan of FLoyd?  I'm just sitting here surfing and the local rock station is playing the top 97 albums of all time.  The Wall came in at number 88 and I am more than a little apalled.  Granted, it's not hard rock as are the rest of the selections.  

I love Floyd and have all of their albums.  The Wall may well be my favorite album of all time.  Anyone else like me out there? :P

Yeah, sorta.  I have the Predator the Hunter figure and the Stealth predator.  Passed on the Aliens and have yet to see the Queen.  Want the other pred, but no luck there yet either.  Nice stuff, but I generally like McFarlane's less twisted stuff (eg. sports, not wizard of Oz). :o

Currently Diet Dr. Pepper.  Shortly, MGD and my trusty rusty nail.  Yum.  Be in the chat later.
