Yeah, it makes you wonder....  I'm really hoping for some cleared pegs soon.  I haven't been to stores for a while (mostly cuz of rising gas prices).  When I do go I fear I'm going to see the same old stock I saw last time I was out though, and all those damned Jedi and Youngling repacks that plagued EVERY Wal-Mart in my area.

I don't know which is worse.  The Jedi/Younglings or late 2002/early 2003 stock that's now lying about the TRU stores here.

Here's some weirdness...

My nearest K-Mart still has that sea of Zam figures, BUT....

Now they have the Hall of Fame wave.  Leia, R2, 3PO, and 2 Stormtroopers are still there for $5.79 (i think that's the price).

And the next furthest K-Mart on the way to my girl's house is loaded with remnants of the Ozzel wave, Yavin Wave's there in semi-abundance I think (she was there, nto me) and they had some of Jabba's Palace as well.

$6.19 per figure there I believe she said.

Wes only pulled that chick because of Picard...  She thought getting in with him would get her in good with the old man.

What's more, Wes didn't even get anywhere with her.  He just went back to SF Academy with his tail between his legs after Data rescued the crew from that stupid holo-game that was brain-washing the crew.

Wes is still a yutz.  

He'd never have matured to pull the kinda ladies Riker and Piccard did...  A disgrace to the Prime Directive's little brother, the Prime Ladies Directive.  

"As Starfleet Officers, it's your duty to be space pimps yo!"

Admiral Kirk made that one up before he "died".  He had a slew of them, they were like the Rules of Acquisition for Starfleet, created by one perverted old man with a hairpiece.

Simply won't care.

It can end tomorrow and I'd not weep about it...  I'll have films on DVD if I wanna watch them.  I've got figures, and I will still customize to make my own...  

Beyond that I'd just enjoy the hobby as I always have.  Collecting's just an area that fills a small void.  Customizing's always been more fun to me, and more satisfying and it won't end with the line's end.

If there's a TV series, I just hope it's good...  If there's new movies, well I hope they're good too.  None of it really bothers me though...  There's things I'd like to see but if not I'll still be "collecting" just in my own way.  :)

And at least then I'll know what I HAVE to make instead of guessing only to have Hasbro create it sometime down the road!  

I know I'd spend a lot less time in stores, and have a bit more $ on me than I currently do.  That's not really bother me at all.

I'd posted a news blurb here at not too long ago alerting the public that he'd made a mass resurgence here in Pittsburgh.

Every TRU I hit save for one (which I didn't hear a report on from anyone so he may have showed there as well) saw reshipments of him.

It was likely old warehouse stock I'm betting, but he did show again in decent enough #'s that I know a few guys in my area who missed him got one.

He's shipping in his original case assortment Dave, so he's on his original card.  Again I think this is old stock, not technically "new shipments" from Hasbro.  A lot of stores seem to be getting some old things in, and it is inventorying time of year.

I believe I have an extra Dutch.  He's all yours if you want him Broem, just send a PM.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Is this the Separatist ship
« on: May 21, 2004, 08:47 PM »
I wonder which branch of the Seps it's from?  Not a Trade Fed design judging by how it appears...  Quarren perhaps?

I'm anxious for the new films just for all the new information.  

A nice list...  I just read that too Scott.

It's nice to see the Coruscant Wave's still the Coruscant Wave and not preview figures.  Gives hope for "Something more" to be unveiled in the coming months and things.

A wookie warrior's going to go over well methinks.  I hope it makes for a GOOD wookie custom base without "things" on him.  I've wanted a Chewie with removable bandoleir for that very reason (I'm hoping for the VOTC, but the more the merrier anyway).

Another Astromech should do well, so long as it's a poseable one.  I've found the posed ones without retractable legs are often not popular.

I have been thinking that Grevious would've been a preview figure for ages now.  He's the big pimpin' figure of this line, I can see it coming.  Deluxe, and about 6 basic versions of him in a single freaking year.  :(

Nah, just Wesley Crusher issues...

He was one of the only detracting features of ST:TNG.  How dare he besmirch the good name of ST with his presence!?

I'm not much different from KBZ I don't believe.

I will buy perhaps a CT STormie or two...  It's a solid figure, and I'm making hand/blaster sets for it myself customizing-wise so it's even better.

I'm pondering others...  I mean, I may buy a Gammorean just to build the ranks.  I got 2 for $2 each at the local Toy Show last month though...  So.....

I'll buy at least one of the new figures each.  Maybe two depending on the fodder potential of any single one of them.  Lobot's legs, Luke's torso, etc...

The Luke X-Wing I may buy...  I cut the teeth from one already though, and it looks fine.  

The Bespin Luke I never liked in the first place.  His stance is too wide for my tastes and he sports an action feature that's horrible.  His holster was awkward too.  Whoever sculpted him didn't do too swift there.  A clean version's unique though, and wouldn't look bad dueling a Vader figure on a shelf.

Beyond that limited buying though, my $'s devoted to OTC and what's coming next year.  And of course military figures which BBi's got some dandy's coming out in 1:18 before TOO long.  Hell, some are shipping now even.

Oh, and I'd pick up a TIE Pilot and extras of the Endor wave if I saw them and needed the pieces.

Still awaiting this one it seems...

Hasbro's really missing the boat, but then again they're maybe awaiting a resurgence...  Why I don't know, considering this thing's popularity surpasses the need for movies to keep momentum up for it.

Give me a set of 10, and multiply that by whatever I can afford to buy.  

Even 2-packs of a SA Trooper and a Red Battledroid (with good plastic and the poseable legs of maybe the E1 droid) would be welcome to me.  I'd buy those in droves as well, and I'd build BOTH armies at once.  Can't knock that idea much.

I doubt many would complain about getting Clones and Droids to fight them either.

Is the Han really that decent though Nick?  It's looked really bad in images I've seen.

This is the first posts I've noticed of anyone finding this set...  I'll have to keep my eyes peeled.  Still unsure about buying it but if the Han's decent enough I'd bite.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Silver Sandtrooper!
« on: May 21, 2004, 05:38 PM »
I'm actually hoping to get this guy...  I have a complete set of Silver figures right now, and I really would like to keep that going.

It's one of the only carded things I own or even want to own.  I'm perplexed why a Stormtrooper wasn't done first, but whatever.  Sandtroopoer's ok too.  

I hope this guy's not tough to get...  So far the Vader's been the only one to go that route.  

As a set they look actually decent...  Unique...  A 3PO and Stormie wouldn't turn me off though, and a red vac-metalized (POTF2 sculpt?) Royal Guard would be neat in a way too.

I hope they don't do flesh characters though.  That'd look bad methinks.

I'm holding them, irregardless.  

I hope they come to be useful...  I'm not going to count on it but I hope.

Mail-away exclusives are one of the biggest things I miss about this line.  G.I. Joe has so many Fan Club exclusives and things, it's great for those who collect hard-core in that line.  I wish we'd have that kind of attention here as well.

I'm curious, really, h ow this line's going to go after E3.  I can take or leave it...  I'll just go on customizing, so I wn't be broken-hearted when/if it stops production right away.  I'm curious if Hasbro has the foresight to go really collector-oriented though, or what effect a TV series may have.

You'd think in an upcoming film year they'd do an exclusive mail-away...  It's coming up on the seemingly last chance to do so in a truly "profitable" fashion (By Hasbro's opinion of what they think will yield them the maximum benefit anyway).  I'd argue it could work for them in non-movie years too though.
