Huh?

I'll second that.  Any reference to what you're talking about?

Funny - the guy who looks the most straight is always the one who dies.

The Legacy Collection / Re: The Big Vehicles - Did You Buy Them?

Both Target and TRU in Tonka have the Falcon now, but I've been able to hold off.  Hoping the go on sale in a month or two.   ;)

I've noticed Target dropping prices all week. I bought 3 figures there on Monday for $8.99 each, and on a time killing trip there yesterday I saw they were $7.99. Good to see they're matching WM and TRU, too bad they're all picked over.

$8.99?!  Are you sure?  $9 a figure is seriously ridiculous.

Sumbitch. I actually paid full price for that one. When will I learn to let Target exclusives go to clearance before buying them?

Seeing as how they haven't been out for 90 days, you should be able to get the clearance one, then just return it with your old receipt.   ;)

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Re: Sideshow 12" Stormtrooper
« on: August 1, 2008, 10:40 PM »
I just don't get it.   I got the Vader with no problem.  I log on to get the stormtrooper and it automatically sends me to the wait list?

Arggh!

That's not surprising.  Stormies are significantly cheaper and someone out there is bound to be troop building (or at least getting more than one). 

I was initially tempted by this figure, but the prices on these have become ridiculous.  And only the exclusive version comes with a blaster?  Really?  I bought into the rebel fleet trooper, but I have enough other 12" stormies to easily pass this one AND the Vader.

My assumption has been that they are smart and born into money.  I always think "mob boss" when I hear about Hutts - they come up with the plans and finance the crimes, but let others get their hands dirty.  Those who have money often make money, so no surprise that hutts in general are often depicted as wealthy.  The theory that Nall Hutta had some rich resources to get them started is as good as any.

Star Wars Universe / Re: Clone Wars: EU or Prequel?

But according to imdb.com, Lucas is Producer & Executive Producer for the movie, as well as receiving writer credit for the story and characters.

'Nuff said.  Yeah....everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but I don't think the whole "how involved is Lucas" is really a fair gauge of whether something should be considered canon or EU.

Oh what a good time you two picked for a birthday!  Hope you got lots of cash and SW goodies!

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars AT-TE
« on: July 31, 2008, 10:41 PM »
Time for a stupid question.  Have any of you tried to mount your AT-TE climbing a wall as shown in the trailer -  which I've heard a few comments on regarding space issues?

If so - I'd love to hear the details and see pics.   :)

You're asking for pics of someone mounting an AT-TE? That is just sick.  >:(

Oh, not just the first pick, its all 12 in order of finish (I realize my post implied just the first pick was predetermined

If new guys take the spots, that is random for who they took over for, or I've seen where they are tucked at the end of the 1st round in order they signed up etc

That's an interesting idea.  I'm in other leagues where we do this and another where its random.  Thing is - what if three guys drop out and they had the 1st, 6th, and 12 picks?  How do you assign the three newbies who replace them?  I'm with Rob - if it was a keeper league and you had the same guys year after year, I think this would make sense, but if teams are turning over fairly regualrly, random is the only fair way to do it.  I also don't think you can set up a rule like this for current year draft - it would have to apply to next year. Otherwise people who vote for it now are basing their votes on where they would end up drafting since we already know how people performed last year.

You'd be lucky to get Tomlinson with the 2nd pick.   :)

I know...that was the joke.   ;)

Alright, if you insist.

One more freebie though - Jerry Rice is the best receiver, like ever!

Ha!  Well I've heard that Tomlinson is pretty good, so I'm looking to pick him up first or second round if I can.   ;)

As for -1 for missed kicks, I'd be totally okay with doing away with that.  But we've got negative points for INT's and Fumbles, I always considered that the equivalent for kickers.  But I hate it when it happens to me, so if everyone wanted to get rid of it, I'd be alright with that.

I see where you're coming from, but its kind of an extra penalty as well.  We don't penalize RBs when they don't get any yardage on a carry or QB's for incomplete passes.  A missed FG is similar to these events in my opinion.  What say the rest of you?

He's been available in large quantities at every Target I've been to the last week (I'm in Minneapolis).
