I agree...  However I did find some ESB remnants last night finally so part of me has some hope, but in the end we do get the shaft out here for product.

Its always the last to show here (well, generally), and not in the quantities others seem to get. :)

Trickle-down effect from the west to east...  And it really dissipates by the time it gets here.  *sigh*

I only need a ROTJ set myself.  Never got the Emperor and I can justify the set by the STormtrooper in it.   :-\

Agreed...  I think it's the $ thing that is enticing, but overall they're really not that pretty if you ask me.  Good bodies, but most people with large ammounts of $ can pay for that...  Or make themselves sick trying, ahem.

But yeah, anyway, I don't see them as anything but the kids they were when on TV even, but they aren't my cup of tea today either.  Then again I went to school from kindergarten to 12th grade with a girl who if you saw her you'd think she's a living Barbie Doll.  She's attractive, but to me it's like seeing a sister so I just don't see it the same as the majority.

People like that just need taken off the road.  I hope they see to it he's not allowed to drive legally.  Ever.

I've driven fast...  We all have, but people like that are putting others at risk, and they simply don't care.  205's a speed that's virtually uncontrollable, and if he'd have wrecked and killed himself he could've hurt someone else, or someone may have felt responsible for HIS injury or death. 

Not me, but someone might've.

Jeff, there are indeed shots of Gotal and Dannik...

Both are INCREDIBLE figures.  I mean absolutely brilliant sculpts.  It appears that the tentacle things are on Dannik's face however, so I'm hoping they're removable as they were not showing in the Cantina, and that it's a "feature" is all.

Dannik's got ball/socket knees, looks like anyway, a holster for a gun, and his bong's on his belt also and has a hose to the mouthpiece.  Looks like wrists as well are articulated.

Very cool, without a doubt.

The Gotal also is cool, but a bit more "plain" IMO.  His articulation looks superior however, as I see cut elbows/biceps and wrist joints.  Can't tell on the knees as he has kneepads of some sort, but there's a cut on his RIGHT knee that indicates hinged knees to me.  Not sure however.  He's holding a drink and a bespin Guard/Elan pistol painted up all nice and black with a silver barrel.  I see no holster however, though he could have a back holster on his belt.

There's also pics of the littel Playschook figures, the next animated CW wave, and old Pablo Jill/Yarua pictures.

Filming for Episode 3 perhaps?  The big Wookie scene I'm thinking.

You forgot the actual "Happy Birthday" part Jess.   :P

Oh yeah...  Happy Bday too Brad.  Get stuff.

20?  Good God...

20 sucked because I was still too young to drink but old enough that I really wanted too outside of my friend's dorm rooms, parties, or the odd dive bar that didn't card.

1 more year to true freedom Brad. 

Now go piss on something...  Scum just got some good "things" to take a leak on...  Not just threads, but people as well.

For $10 it's neat.  If you've got figures for around it, it's really quite a nice display piece.  The pack-in is ok.  He has a removable helmet...  Can't argue with that.  They did a U.S. and German Infantry with removable helmet, but they rarely packed the U.S. in.

Most U.S. pack-ins were actually U.S. officers with glued on helmets. 

They're a good set, but I waited for $10 before buying ANY.  $5 for a big fountain and $5 for a figure.  That's better than retail when you break it down.

I want Kirk Douglas mimic classes to cry out "I am Spartacus" like he does.  Till then I'm out...

The outfits are adorable though... 

"Do you like movies about gladiators Timmy?"  ;D

Oh yeah, lots to be thankful for here... 

I don't think they'd feel guilty.  If anything I wound up feeling more guilty than them...  They're old, so whatcha gonna do, ya know? :) 

Should be irked at my brother because he was home alone.  His family were at his mother-in-law's, so he could've come got me...  Probably had to have paid his ass to get up and come out  though.

As always, I'm working on being there.  Should be fun...  Got my day all free.

Not sure how much of a Pitt audience we have here at JD, beyond ourselves of course, and I believe this is where I met Keldor and showed him over to the Pitt site, but that's at least some.  Be nice if some new guys would find us through here! :)

I've now gotten two Bradley's, and LAV, two Fountains, and that's about it...  Just recently though, and all great stuff for real cheap.

The Bradley's I had help with from a friend at GP's site...

Now to get some playset extras...  :)

I second that Dave.  I've found NONE of the ESB yet.  A friend in the area got me Lando and Vader on Friday though, so that's a start...  Still need doubles of them though, and 3PO and Yoda I've not got at all.

I wanted 5 Stormtroopers...  Things aren't shaping up well for that. :(
