I guess if I don't hear from him I may still have a basic set of 6 plus Probot available...

If he falls through, keep me in mind.

I just canceled my pre-order with NCSX for a box of 12.  I just don't think the chance to get a chase is worth the cost of buying two sets.  I'm just going to pick up a set of 6 plus the Build a Fig and be done with the wave.

If I was smart, I'd cancel my Bo12 pre-order and just scarf up a set of 6 on the cheap.

Unfortunately, you and I both know that is not going to happen ;)

*sigh* yep.

I'm putting in my vote for the two worst SW chase releases to date.  We already got a black astromech in one of the TRU boxed sets.  Very disappointed by this

I'm with you...  If I was smart, I'd cancel my Bo12 pre-order and just scarf up a set of 6 on the cheap.

Any chance this is like the Poncho Luke where the first image wasn't accurate with the shirt details co pared to the actual product?  I'm really disappointed by the blank shirt. I will NOT go out of my way to try and get one of these.

We didn't fair too well on none SW stuff either. The first half of the year was good as we got Iron Man and Toy Story sets and a few others I forget.

Harry Potter Kubricks dropped in January 2011 too I believe.

The PS3 hair dryer trick got the system back up and running!!! Recognizing this isnt a permanent fix, I've started running the backup utility (very slow!!!). I hope the system holds out long enough to complete the backup - 6 hours to go  :o

There are tricks to overheat the unit to the point where the solder melts and the connections are reestablished.  Some people run it wrapped in a towel, or put it in an oven.  There are tutorials on YouTube.

I'm going to give those a try tomorrow. Nothing to lose at this point!

My son's PS3 died last night - Merry Christmas on the first day of your vacation.

I'm getting the blinking red light of death which based on my internet research indicates its likely a problem due to long term over-heating and a malfunction with the Motherboard.  By all accounts, Sony can fix this for the tidy sum of $150 + taxes, shipping and of course time.

He was getting some Christmas money from Grandma so we were able to go out and buy a new 160GB version.  I was under the impression that I'd be able to pull the old HDD out of the malfunctioning PS3 and slide it into the new model.  The old HDD was upgraded to a 500GB drive in February and I figured that I could just swap out the drives.  Apparently that is not the case... each PS3 encodes an individual HDD so that it will only work in that system.  I suppose that makes sense but its incredibly frustrating.

So my son was completely devastated, first at the thought of no PS3 for Christmas vacation (he's expecting several new video game gifts!!) and then second when we got the new PS3 and found out his old files can't be transferred.   >:( >:(

At least his two favorite games we were able to "recover" the most "important" information - For MW3, apparently all his "status" is saved with the PSN account and when we logged in on the new system he didn't lose anything.  His second favorite game is WWE12 and he had made several in-game purchases... all of those were still "recognized" as purchases and we could re-download them.

He has still lost any saved games / progress in any game he owns though...

So now I'm wondering if I can find a "cheap" way to get the old PS3 up and running long enough to do the data transfer or at least back-up the saved game files.  According to the internet research I did last night, you can repair these with some solder and a heat gun.  Not something I'm proficient with so I'm going to look around for a local "tech" resource that can help... I do not want to send this to Sony for $150.  I don't need to the old system to work for long... just long enough to try and recover the data files.

I never did order this one. I really should have.

Edit: I see it is still in stock and I do have $37 in sideshow rewards. Hmmm.

Pretty happy with the price, even though it's going to be over $400

Sad state of affairs when this is a true statement.   ;D
