Jocasta's Reading Room / Re: Legacy Novels
« on: December 11, 2007, 04:48 PM »
I read Fury in two days.  Great book aith lots of action.  Alston also did a great job with Ben halping Luke still dealing with his grief over losing Mara as well as the Jag and Jaina storyline.  I have a feeling that they will be a couple again by the end of the series.

I also enjoyed it quite a bit.   Hopefully Jag/Jaina can hook up again... anything but Zekk!   I really like Alson's writing style

I'm sure some of the driving and fighting scenes were actual gameplay rather than just a cut scene/movie but we'll just have to see.    I can't wait to pick this up with FU next year for my PS3!

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Wal-Mart Exclusives..Where Are They?
« on: December 11, 2007, 10:40 AM »
Well, I guess I can be the first person to report finding the GH Cantina packs (at least in this particular forum).  The local Wal-Mart (in VA) had two of each set on the shelf this morning under a slightly modified SW action figure section.  I came very close to picking up the one with the Modal Nodes (just for the music), but I passed on them.  No sign of the exclusive comic packs, although WM stocked the pegs full of the "new" Han ST/Chewie, GMT/Stormie, Luke ST/R2-D2 wave without the blue markings. 

So, for whatever it's worth given how horrible Wal-Mart's exclusive distribution is, the GH sets are out there.

Which VA Wal-Mart had them?

12" Figures / Decisions- have Darth Vader, do I want Anakin too?
« on: December 7, 2007, 04:13 PM »
Hey everyone!   I ended up missing out on the first Anakin 12" from Sideshow and end up on the waitlist.   I then picked up the Darth Vader- Sith Apprentice figure but never cancelled the waitlist.   I just got the notification that my waitlist (non-exclusive) will convert to an order soon.   I was hoping folks could shed some light on how different the two actually are and voice their opinions on whether it's worth having a light and dark Anakin other than being completist.

Thanks!

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Cutting back in 08?
« on: December 7, 2007, 01:11 PM »
I definitely need to cut back next year even more than I did this year.   This year saw me turn into an opener as well as develop a "focus" on the musicians of Star Wars, and I tried to only pick up the "new" figures from the TAC line but I ended up getting the whole shebang to complete that damn coin album.   Next year I'm going to stick to it.   The fact that I'm really into the SideShow 12" line isn't helping either- 3 of 'em at Xmas time is hurting.   Not to mention that I REALLY want to get at least the Hoth Ultimate Battle Pack and probably the Endor one too.

Sigh

12" Figures / Re: Sideshow 12" Han Solo (Tatooine Smuggler)
« on: December 7, 2007, 12:46 PM »
I am going to guess a medallion as the exclusive.

It's nice.. the head is slightly better than Bepin Han but still a far cry from a Harrison look-a-like.  I suspect the medallion will be with both just like with the cermonial Luke...   speculation on Sideshow's site is that the exlusive will be headset or maybe alternate hands with gloves

12" Figures / Re: Sideshow 12" ANH Obi-Wan Kenobi

I just got my 15 day e-mail so its possible.

Just got mine as well.  This is NOT a good month for the CC... even BEFORE holiday shopping.   3 12" figures in a month?   Not that I mind but it would have been nice to get a slight heads up for financial planning-"Oh.. by the way, late November/December we'll be charging your CC $190.. have a nice day".   It's not like the pre-orders were a few weeks apart like this.

Oh well... more to be happy about.. and more to be depressed about  >:(

Here's hoping my Channuka gelt gets here pronto!

Mine's still on "Order Placed" for the status..   I need to call them anyways 'cause my Ghhhk HoloChess piece was missing a leg (or arm?)

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 30AC Star Wars Comic Packs
« on: November 6, 2007, 08:33 AM »
I just wish they'd stop using comic adaptations of the movies for these "EU" packs and stick with the actually expanded universe story lines.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 2007 30AC UGH Promotion
« on: November 2, 2007, 01:23 PM »
Phew!  Managed to find the Han, Luke, and McStormy UGHs at Kohl's last night... Pricey at 9.99 but they were on sale for 7.49 and then another 15% off when I signed up for the store CC

All that's left is the McFett... anyone got an extra?

12" Figures / Sideshow 12" Commander Praji
« on: November 1, 2007, 02:52 PM »
I got mine ordered. True, it doesn't look exactly like him, but I think they did a good job. Remember, this is just the prototype which could be changed before the final release.

I was hoping for Vader just like everyone else, but I am fine with this one. They really do need to get to the Vader though. Hint Hint. ;)

Yeah.. I bit my lip and ordered him too.  Praji used to be a favorite imp for my SWCCG decks in the beginning.  If I change my mind.. I can always cancel!

I just checked Science Fiction Book Club and they have this listed for $49.99.  Not a bad price for this (41% off).  Might have to ask for this one for Christmas.

I haven't ordered anything from SFBC in a while so they sent me a "come baaaaack" coupon which I used for this.  Combined with a buy2 get one free and low 2.49 flat shipping I manged to do pretty well and picked up Death Star and some other SW and Scifi/fantasy books.

In fact, come to think of it, based on these other results from the OT based figures, I'm pretty perplexed as to how Zev managed to do so well, when all of his OT counterparts stunk the joint up.

I noticed that too.  Judging by all the great OT-based figures that finished so poorly (VOTC Stormie and EB Chewie primarily among them), I'm really surprised that Zev finished in the top 5.  You would have figured there would be another clone in there or something :).

Maybe Hasblo just has tons of loose Zevs sitting around the factory.........

Hey everyone!  This is the LAST figure I need to complete my POTF 85 set.... looking for him loose w/wo saber.    Can anyone help me?
