Being a Bears fan, it was really hard to watch that game yesterday.  The Seahawks threw all over the secondary and it seemed like Alexander was getting 5+ every time he got the ball.  The receives for the Bears couldn't catch a thing in the red zone and Rex was very close to having a melt-down (fumble and interception).  But in spite of that, they still held on and won.  I think that this was an eye opener for the Bears and they are going to be ready for next week and the Saints.  Personally, I don't think that the Saints are going to do well in the 10-20 degree weather that will be in Chicago next weekend, and they definitely won't have the fans behind them!

As far as the AFC goes, I really don't know who's going to show up for either team.  Honestly, it's going to be a matter of how the defenses perform in that game.  With both offenses being as mediocre as they were this past weekend, I think it comes down to whoever screws up less wins.

My prediction, Bears vs. Patriots.

I for one have not.  And considering my luck at fiinding WM exclusives thus far, I don't expect to find these either...

I will be glad to snag as many of these as board members need..

I'll PM you once these start hitting the shelves because I know I won't be able to get one.  Thanks for the offer!

I am not pleased about this at all.  I've been able to get all the Target exclusives since ROTS came out, but never saw the Separation of the Twins figures and only saw one Cantina Band tin recently.  I'm also fairly sure that I won't see the 5 exclusive figures from the final 22.  This has just got BAD written all over it.

Looks like I'm going to have to get on Dressel Rebel's and MetalJedi's distribution list once these come out!

Damn, now I really feel bad that I didn't get out on Wednesday.  I tried to pick one up yesterday and they were already sold out.  Hopefully they'll get another shipment in early next week.

I'm new to the game but I'll play.  I'm not a big spender, at least in my own mind, but I know that I've committed to buying a lot of $20+ items for this year...

That being said:

WM Exclusive Cantina Band Tin:  $20
Ambush on Ilum BP: $20
Betrayal on Felucia BP: $20
Jedi Training on Dagobah BP: $20
Mace Windu MR Force FX Lightsaber: $65 30 (Got a refund)
Star Wars Poster Book: $9

Total:  $154 $124

TSC Basic Figures: $58
Star Wars Chronicles - The Prequels: $50
Droids, Droids Rebellion, Boba Fett Death Lies and Treachery, Boba Fett Enemy of the Empire tpbs: $13
Tales of the Jedi - The Collection tpb: $24

Total:  $145

That same Wal-Mart I mentioned in my last post did in fact put these on clearance.  They only had ROTJ and the Cantina sets by the time I made it back there, but they were both $20.  I only got the Cantina set which was a good deal for $4 a figure!

My sons the day after Christmas:



It was only about a day after that that my wife decided the lightsabers were going to be an 'outside' toy.

They re-set the toy aisle at my local Target and shoved SW all the way to the end of the aisle.  There are 4 pegs for basic figures (with Pregme's and Naboo soldiers), a few collector's tins, basic lightsabers, spring action lightsabers and a sprinkling of Titanium vehicles and SW Transformers.  However TRU and Wal-Mart are packed to the gills with Hoth, Endor, GB, and Naboo.

Does someone have a list of the confirmed FX sabers for 2007 (or at least so far)?  I'd really like to pick up a Luke saber sometime, if they re-do/re-release one or both of them.  Just curious.  Thanks :).

This was posted a while back, but so far the Yoda is the only one that has been 'confirmed' off the list.  Looks like there is a Luke scheduled.

Yoda FX saber coming up. Along with a "Joe Jedi" Make Ur Own FX Saber.

To your other questions, I really hope that they reduce the price accordingly for the Yoda as well.  Although I'm sure they are going to charge $120, it seems ridiculous considering it's 75% of the size of a standard FX saber...  I guess we'll find out next week for sure.  And, I don't remember hearing anything about reduced priced blasters.  However I'm with you, I can't afford the other ones and that would be a great way to get a few of them...

BTW, since the Yoda FX saber is smaller, you can try to leverage that with your wife so you can get it for your child!  I'm going to try to do that with my wife so I can get ones for my 2 boys.  Good luck!

I was at my local Target tonight and they had the Star Destroyer for $67 and Slave 1 for $35 in the clearance aisle.  Jabba's Sail Barge was still full price, but I'm sure that's the next one to go on the block.

In case you guys missed the article on the front page, Yoda Force FX is up for pre-order next week!!! ;D

I'm definitely going to have to pick these up for my kids as it's almost a foot shorter than a traditional FX lightsaber.  No MSRP listed on the page though, so I'm wondering what they will ultimately end up charging for this...
