I think its also a testament to the show how well the casting was done.  I think there were four successful actors/actresses that got their start on this show, plus a few other people you've seen pop up from time to time.

Seth Rogan
Jason Segel
James Franco
Linda Cardellini

If Hamill and Fisher are in the new movies I hope they get digitally re-touched.  They haven't aged well and might scare the kids  ;)

I just hope they stay away from Spielberg and any of Lucas' buddies.  I've not been impressed with Spielberg's recent work and would love to see them go with someone capable of challenging GL's opinions.

I agree with a previous post that Lucas' "yes men" have not been helpful.  Saw "Red Tails" the other day and thought it was on the bad side of below average. had a great potential list:
  • Christopher Nolan
  • Peter Jackson
  • JJ Abrams
  • Joss Whedon
  • Guillermo del Toro

Lucas must have terminal cancer to give up his control of his projects.

Downloaded OS6.  Looking forward to FaceTime on 3G networks. 

I think Apply completely screwed up by going away from Google Maps.  Google Maps are far, far superior to the junk Apple just put out.  3D is nothing but a gimmick.

Met Matt at a local meeting to sell some POTF2 figures for his collection.  Smooth transaction.

I haven't seen anything clear out of comic con. Didn't seem like they showed any new clone wars figures (other than realistic styling).   Anybody there and hear anything about the future of this line?

Super lame.  Saw the video on JTA.  This is about the lamest, most un-fun thing I've seen Hasbro release in a long time.  I think my kids would play with this for about 10 minutes before moving on and never touching it again.

Its hard to see how I would pay more than $50 for this, and that is almost solely because I'm still somewhat of a completist. 

Bumping up an oldie here....but recently my parents had brought out some tubs of old toys to have out when we visit so our daughter has stuff to play with.  Anyways, one tub was filled with several (incomplete) micro machine sets.  I personally didn't have these, but my brother (who is 12 years younger than me) apparently had several - and my daughter and I had a lot of fun playing with these recently.  Most of them are the "head" sets that I remember somewhat, and there is also a Falcon in there.  Anyways, I really know next to nothing about micro machines, but I was wondering if these are hard to pick up these days?  Kind of thought about picking some up to have here at home, but wasn't sure what was the right way to go.  The transforming head sets seemed kind of neat, and I'd love to get a Falcon one, but wasn't sure how rare/pricey this stuff was these days.  Either way, I have to say, they are some fun little toys.

I recently sold a whole pile of extras on eBay for close to original retail.  These are one of the few things that seem to have maintained their value.  There are some for sale on eBay.

I don't see these selling at all.  The pegs at Target seem to be crammed and stagnant with these overpriced squinkies.

I wouldn't mind picking up a few for the kids, but the current price is nuts.  These need to be at least 50% lower before I would even consider picking up some.

Gentle Giant / WonderCon Yoda

I'm potentially looking to pick up this new Yoda sculpt (not sure what the cost is), but am not a 2012 Premier Guild member.  Any Guild Members that would be interested in grabbing this for me?

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Big Items of the Future!
« on: January 27, 2012, 02:27 PM »
Like Jesse said...almost every single one of them has been clearanced and the amount and severity of clearance keeps growing.

Anybody ever talk to Hasbro about the Attack Gunship?  I wonder what happened to a lot of these that were at retail. 

I know Amazon really clearanced them out, but it seems like all of Target's stock was pulled back (by Hasbro?).  I don't recall these even hitting 30% off before being removed from the shelves.

And it's not always about the 30-40 somethings anyway, remember kids love this stuff.  If you could only see how much my son loves the Turbo Tank... and they aren't cheap on ebay either.

While the Turbo Tank may be out of scale, I would agree that is by far the best *TOY* ever made in the modern Star Wars line.  The lights, the missiles, the ruggedness, the launching speeder.  My kids love playing with it and have quickly set many of the other toys aside and always go back to the Turbo Tank.

Wow, it sounds like a amazing item. I can't see getting it myself, unless it goes crazy clearance like the shuttle did. While it will have a lot of buzz going for it with the movie out, it is still a big rounded brown terd that carries nameless battle droids...

As a star wars geek, I can see wanting one, but as a parent looking for something cool for $100 or more, I'm not sure this thing has much curb appeal. the turbo tank looked like a monster truck, the AT-AT is a mechanized dino, and the Falcon is the Falcon. This one needs spinning rims, air shocks, and a subwoofer to be cool.

You nailed it Dan.  Neat, but would my kids play with it?  No way.

I'll probably pick it up if it gets sub $60, but likely not drop $100 on it.

Seems kind of odd that we would get this ship before a Rebel Troop Transport - I know it is a TPM year and not ANH year.

I still think an Ewok playset or something else would be a helluva lot cooler than a battle droid troop carrier *yawn*.
