I'm surprised how many "experts" picked Atlanta to win today. They were only 4-4 on the road this year, and regardless of how good Matt Ryan was all season, he's still a rookie QB in the playoffs. Arizona isn't any good, but they play well at home and their crowd was really fired up. That's always a bonus.

Just an FYI - that team that isn't any good is looking like they may make it to the final four...  :-X

Those KO combiners suck. I bought a set of Constructicons at Walgreens last year, and it was the worst $6 I ever spent. None of the figures fit together, they can barely transform, and you can feel the lead in the plastic on your fingers.

That's why I'd gladly pay $95 to BBTS or any other importer for a nice reissue set. I haven't seen any individual piece of a vintage Devastator sell for less than $15-20 a piece, though I'll admit I haven't looked for a while.

I'm not sure what Walgreens is selling, but I have this set and the arielbots from Big Lots and they're pretty decent.  The stickers are goofy and even the paint jobs aren't the best, but they all had tight joints and transformed just fine.  I didn't feel any lead in the plastic either - perhaps you've got a superpower that you were unaware of.   ;)

There's also Boss and who know what rookies they'll get in the draft, not to mention Tyree will be back next year.  The Giants do not need TO.

Boss, Tyree, Hixon, S. Smith, and Toomer...yikes.  I don't know of too many rookies who make an impact in their first year either. 

Good luck my friend - I hope you have a great defense and ground game.

I think receivers will be available in the FA market and they'll go shopping...  I agree with Matt, from another perspective though, that I wouldn't want TO on my team...  Synergy is everything it's cracked up to be, and a guy tearing a team apart in the locker room, on the field, or on the sidelines, is a plague that'll eat up the best of teams.

You act like he's the only player that ever disagrees with his teammates.  I'm sure there are plenty of disagreements and bad feelings on every team, but Owens is the one we constantly hear about in the media.  Would you rather have Steve Smith?  How many teammates has he sent to the hospital?  How about Vincent Jackson or one of a dozen other guys who will get busted drunk driving or using drugs? 

I'd take Owens on the Packers in a heartbeat.  The guy has a mouth, but at least he backs it up with his playing.  Most of the superstars at each position are big talkers - I guess I'd rather have that than someone with a big mouth who doesn't perform.

As a Giants fan....I never want to see TO in a Giants uniform.

Enjoy your future losing seasons.  Who is Eli going to throw to next year?  I don't see Hixon and Toomer leading the team to another Super Bowl.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Re: Sideshow 12" Sandtrooper

True, but it's one helluva a nice looking figure.  I am just scared to see what their final price will be.  I will have to buy their orange pauldron version whenever they release that.  Then they will release the black one and get more of my mula. 

It's a very nice figure, but $109?  No thanks.  I can't believe the exclusive sold out already at that price.   ::)

If I was doing the combiners that would be a great price for the set, but thankfully I am not doing that set. I don't think my wallet or my wife could deal with it.

I have a knock off of this set from Big Lots that cost $9.99.  I think I'll stick with that.   ;D

Modern Trading / Re: Clone turbo tank.

This is a custom made 3 3/4 scale clone juggernaunt. This thing rocks! Can be Used for dioramas or display. Brought this awhile back and just had it on display with the troopers and stuff. Can hold 10 clones inside sitting side by side and another 4 for the pilots. Has removable top pieces and everything. Currently entertaining offers. Trades accepted as well. Let me know!

What sort of things are you looking for in trade?

Who knows - maybe someone will come along one day and incorporate the best of what was JD into a brand new SW collecting site?

That is my hope. :)

Mine too  ;)  - yes I'm winking at somebody :-X

You're ALWAYS winking at somebody.   ;)

I just finished the Legacy of the Force series and was really dissapointed that they didn't tie up more loose ends. 


 - Why did Jaina even train with the Mandalorians?  She didn't use her berserker fighting style to fight Caedus!
 - Could Allana's storyline be anymore predictible?
 - I thought earlier books referenced Lumiya talking with a future Caedus, but we never see Caedus flow walk back to talk with her.  Did they just forget about this or was it someone other than Caedus?
 - Could Jag's character be any more of a tool?  The guy just get's pushed into whatever role needs filling.  Hey fighter pilot, why don't you become a bounty hunter and make a suit or armor like Iron Man.  Then you can lead a task force to hunt down Alema. We don't have anything lined up after that, but you can take the Falcon out for a spin for no apparent reason and be a punching bag for Jaina.  Crap, the Empire needs a new leader - hey how about Jag?  Ridiculous. 
 - Tahiri wasn't much better.  I'm glad there was some storyline around her because I like the character, but it took Ben half a paragraph to talk her out of being a Sith.

In all, I felt like every sub plot was too rushed.  They need an extra page or two of conversation or detail to bring readers in.  As it is, it felt like reading a wikipedia summary of a real story.  ::)  I did like the middle books a lot - some focus on the mandalorians and background on the clones was great.  And I loved the run-in with the hidden Sith...that was a nice little plot connector for those of us reading the novels and the Legacy comic line.

That same article makes mention of an assistant by the name of Natasha.  A potential tie-in for the Black Widow, perhaps?

Possible, but that seems unlikely given how close Marvel has stayed to other comic figure origins.

Yeah but we don't have that many X-Men in 3 3/4. As of now it looks like we'll be getting a couple in the "Wolverine" line. But they're all related to that movie.

You mutie lovers are never satisfied.  We're hardly getting any Avengers either and they have a bigger lineup than the X-titles by now.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Republic attack shuttle
« on: January 6, 2009, 10:36 PM »
I'd rather have the armed Neimoidian Shuttle that Anakin and Obi-Wan used in Dooku Captured. :P

I'd rather have a Tantiv IV scaled 2x the size of the Falcon, but I don't think it's gonna happen.   ;)

Then Hasbro would have to redo the RFT for Jesse, and they've made it clear they won't do that; just to spite him.

On the contrary, they could release this in conjunction with a 4 figure Battle Pack of Rebel Fleet Troopers all with the same sculpt, but 4 new head molds.  You heard it here first!

Those look terrible.  Was one of those even supposed to be John Connor?  Because I couldn't tell.  And given the fact that there are already some decent sculpts of Christian Bale out there in the Batman line, these look even more ridiculous.

Seriously not interested.  Wow these are bad.
