 Very interesting perspective on how to weave the Hobbit into a trilogy with an eye on the Lord of the Rings.

I pulled out my Batman Begins disk to watch again.  I don't have a DVD copy of TDK so I may just have to play the memory game on that one!

Sideshow agreed to send me a replacement for the Light up base... in accordance with their policy, you also have to "destroy" the deffective piece and provide photographic evidence.  If you don't they will charge you for the replacement.

I love their instructions for destruction:

Quote from: Sideshow
** Please use care and precaution when destroying this piece.  We ask that you use a rather blunt instrument to crush your piece only. We would advise placing the piece in a cloth bag, pillow case, or heavy duty trash bag to contain any flying debris as well as any small pieces that result from destroying your piece. DO NOT set fire to your collectible or drop it from a high altitude as this may cause bodily harm to yourself, bystanders, private or public property. We also ask that you protect yourself from flying pieces or shards by wearing eye protection, if possible, as well as proper footwear.

Got my Boba Fett. Nice looking figure for sure. Lots of hands and accessories. One issue with my figure though.  My base has some sort of a part loose as it rattles when you shake it. I'm going to have to get a replacement.

Andy Griffith dies at 86

Makes me sad.   I grew up watching the re-runs of the Andy Griffith show on television.  It was (and still is) one of our families favorite shows.

Don't most of us already have like 60 of these red royal guards?

I got my 17 day shipping notice on Boba Fett. Not sure if I want to keep this one or not. It seems like I go through this every time a preorder comes due for payment.

Anyone watching Hatfields & McCoys on History?

I have the first two parts on my DVR and the third set to record. I'm going to try to watch them back-to-back-to-back if I can get the time.

Me too. It's on the DVR and will queue it when we have time to watch.

I just ordered my first Jumbo figure today... Orange Snake Yoda.   I'm worried this line could get addictive.

Hmmm... not sure how I feel about this.  Hopefully its not so disruptive to lessen the overall experience.   I can't think of a more highly anticipated movie for me since the Fellowship of the Ring came out.

I think TPM is my least favorite movie, but I can find 6 figs I'd like to see Kubricked:

- Tatooine Padme
- Captain Panaka
- Nute Gunray
- Gungan Warrior or Tarpals
- Padawan Obi-Wan
- Anakin Slave with Pit Droid

That would make for a great series! Throw in a Wald and/or Valorum chase and we've got a winner.  :P

Maybe a head-swap so you can get Anakin without the racing goggles.

I would have liked that...  I've been thinking about a mini-diorama with Qui-Gon, Young Ani and the Maul/Speeder Bearing down on them.
