Happy birthday guys - hope you old timers get some good gifts.

I didn't know you were into Barbie dolls Justin.
Nice setup though.
Yes, out of every player interviewed, the media ONLY ever focuses on TO, every Sunday, week-in-and-week-out... Only Owens.
There's a reason you hear about Owens the most... He's the most vocal publicly, and teams he's been on have all thought he was worth the trouble. How many changed their tune though?
I'm not saying that they don't need a better WR. Hixon is ok, but he's a better special teams guy. I just don't think T.O. would be a good fit with the Giants. Get a rookie before T.O.
Nice collection and nice customs...but shouldn't the Chiss Jedi's hair be black and eyes red?
The Giants D did fairly well today, but the Eli didn't seem to show up for the game. Oh well...I didn't even expect them to make the playoffs this year when the season started so I'm happy with their performance overall this year.
AT-TE's and Falcons are on clearance everywhere around me at Targets and WMs. Does this bode well for the future of large vehicles? Did they sell enough to recoup their cost? Do retailers know there's more big vehicles coming so they're trying to make room? Obviously Joe and TF should have a larger footprint this year - SW still has the CW cartoon so I can't see them scaling back shelf space.
The Christophsis UBPs sold out a long time ago here, but the Sarlacc UBPs have been sitting on two different endcaps at $54.99 for at least three weeks, and they aren't moving. It's gonna take a much bigger discount to get these moving I think, at least that's what it'll take for me to buy one.
So are you guys seeing the 3.75" stuff at stores yet? Walmart put it out here this week but at the rather frightening price of $9.72 I'll admit they look nice and I would have been way, way happier to have this scale versus the original but I am not about to replace 75+ figures; just not going to happen.
Oh, and should there be a new thread for the mini stuff?
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.
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.
