Dang, Rhode Island.  Hmm, lots 'o boxes round here with Star Wars and RI stamped on them.  Nice for your collection, better for your sanity.  Hang in there.  

That's the cool thing about being married.  No matter how much I drive Mrs. Bug nuts, she still likes to have me around.  And vice versa.  Lots of things are taken for granted, but better that than to be apart (yeah, I know, I'm not helping, but something for you to look forward too).  

Better than sappy old Matt MegaBucks ;)

Too rich for me.  Maybe if I hadn't started on that McFarlane stuff, but not now.  Very sweet, but those fall into the after I win the lottery category.  Heck, I'm wrestling with Kubricks still.  Should I?  Shouldn't I?

To be honest, I'd be really surprised if I did find something you needed.  I suspect you are rather much more the master ebay hunter than I.  Nevertheless, first time I'd ever seen it and at the very least, others might find it interesting.  

Just so you know, still no trilogo Jango pilot around me.  Quite sad.

Waay off topic, but for those inclined to McFarlane's Movie Maniacs, the collector club exclusive Stealth version of the Predator is available NOW.  No idea how long it will last, but go today if you want it.  the last club exclusive sold out in about two days or so (deja - toy fair vader-esque).  

Pretty cool figure and only $10 plus shipping.  Joining the club is free.  store is found here 8)

Oh yeah, be prepared to be at the computer a long time.  3 hours to get my order in.  Also very reminiscent of the toy fair vader saga.

Well, those Minnesota boys just keep at it.  3-2 win over the Canucks tonight to tie it up.  Looks to be a very nasty series.  

Last shot of the game, Vancouver net empty, player skating in for a slapshot on the left wing and man, if he didn't look more occupied with running the MInnesota player than firing the shot, I'll be a monkey's uncle.  Really weird too.  Last shot, down by a goal, couple of seconds and you want to hit somebody?  Chippy, scrappy, going to get just plain ugly.  

7 game series?

Well, the world is an interesting place.  At least if yo are a sports fan.  

NBA today went as it should and as it shouldn't.  Much to Scott's dismay, the Lakers tied up the series.  No surprise at home though.  

The bigger surprise, even to me, is the Celtics.  Pretty close to a strangle hold on their series with the Pacers.  Pretty cool, I must say.  Had an opportunity to take the Celtics in a bet, but chickened out.  Oops.

Other Collectibles / Re: Hallmark Star Wars

What's it like in the states?  By that I mean, are these only available direct and from Hallmark stores?  The latter is the only place I believe we can get these in Canada.  Additionally, retail is a bit of a "female dog" up here.  Not because the stuff isn't available just the pricing.  Death Star last year ran $31 plus 14% tax so kinda steep.

Boxing day, prices are half, so it's a bit of a crap shoot on this stuff.  If I know I'll be dragged to the mall boxing day, I watch the stock and see what is likely to remain.  If it is getting low in numbers and I really want it, I'll purchase it (eg. death star).  If not, I'll wait.  I missed out on Jedi Luke this year, but was fortunate enough to get Jango's Slave I for 1/2 off, so good deal.  

The only thing I really want out of that group is the Tie.  I can almost see why the older Yoda is selling for more on ebay.

Same crap we got a couple of weeks ago (slushy wet stuff).  Rained, hailed and snowed today, fortunately none of it stayed.  Enough! :o

Also a tidier-upper.  I cannot abide the Walmart mentality, or so I call it.  Plow through the store knocking everything down and leaving it where it falls.  Also known as hot-wheels-itis.  

Absolutely gotta rearrange stuff.  Star Wars in particular, but whatever is surrounding it.  Now that I am collecting Simpsons, SW, McFarlane, Marvel Legends and Spidey stuff, that covers a good chunk of the section.  I like to pick up MOTU stuff for people on the boards, if I know what they are looking for.  

I categorically will not touch Yu-Gi-Oh, Power Rangers or any of that other crap.  It doesn't sell and I ain't going to make it look good.  I want it out OUT OUT!!!  It's taking up precious retail space.  Aaargh.

Just don't tell me it's snowing there too.  Calgary is getting (got) a dump today.  I seriously hope we are done with that crap, but ya just never know.  

Fergit the hot toddy, Tequila all around.  At least you'll have a reason to feel like crap ;D

shore is slow around these here parts

Happy B-day Folks.  I remember 15.  Vaguely.  Well, really vaguely :(
