Why do these get shorter with each new release?

It's a mix of osteoporosis, osteomalacia, and the rickets!

Its just a deceptive visual.  Each clone took one more step backwards than the clone to his right.  ;)

Yeah yeah yeah.  Must be nice to actually have the NFL Network.  I've missed two games already this week and its not even Sunday at noon.   >:(

Hey, that is really odd!  Is this just the way they are posed?  Anyone else check this out at home?  I don't want to move mine as they are precariously set up... :-[

Found Training Clone, Destroyer Droid, and Voolvif at Walmart this morning.  Getting close, but I'm not sure if I'll finish 2007 in 2007.   :-\

I was seeing the Commander Appo wave put out in force until May of this year, at both Target and Walmart.  Something tells me you'll have plenty of opportunity to score waves 7, 7.5, and 8 right into the Spring.

Yeah, if nothing else I expect to see TAC on clearance at Target when they shift over to the new DPCIs.  Sounds like a big reset is scheduled right after Christmas, so we'll see.  I'm actually pretty close - I just want a few more Hawkbats, 3x Rebel McTroopers, and maybe a few Wave 8 on better cards/bubbles.  Everything else I already have or am in the process of trading for.   :D

For what it's worth, I'd prefer the VOTC, especially considering what we're getting from Evolutions in '08.

I'm with DA on this one.  I like a few of the Evo sets, but the vintage line was really one of my favorites.  I wish they were a little cheaper - some of the ones I picked up last time I paid full Target price of $12 for.  If they were closer to the $8-9 range, I think they'd sell a lot better.  I would at least like to have a complete bounty hunter set, but that's probably unlikely at this point.

I think these look pretty cool.  I'll probably pick up a couple of each, assuming I can actually find them at retail.   ::)

Merry Christmas to all of you, especially those with a Fett or Vader fetish.   ;D

Yeah Pax rocks!  I've got three of him already.  I can see a group of them being a gang of Rodian thugs in the Coruscant underworld.   :)

Can I send the ones that will be pegwarming here in January to you?  ;D

Shipped loose to save me on shipping?  Yes.

I'm up to four of him now, after my wife got me one today.  I've swapped out their jackets with the VTSC Han Endor.  Looks great.  WOOT!   :P

This and the Hawkbat are my faves from this wave.  I was looking over Pax more closely today and I think its the paint ap on his face.  That white to green fade is really awesome.  Greedo was also one of my faves from the vintage line, so thisis a nice homage to him.  My only complaint on Pax is his hands - the way he holds his gun looks odd with the fingers straight out.

I totally disagree.  Parker is #1 in rushing yards, but only because the Steelers overused him, and surprise surprise, he ends up injured before the end of the season. 

I agree with your post, but I don't think a broken leg is an "overuse" injury.  That's the kind of freak thing that can happen on the first play of the season, or any other time.

I'd take Tomlinson over Parker any day, that's for sure.

Well, I'll give you that, though I do still think they've overused him.  Maybe he would have lasted without the freak broken leg, but that's still a fast way to burn out a running back.  Just pray your Steelers won't last long enough to face my Packers.   ;D

I sometimes wish that I had decided to collect the titanium ships, but then I look at my star wars room and the negative available space and think that I made the right decision.   ;)

Parker's the #1 rusher in the league, a pro-bowl bound undrafted star that is explosive on offense...  As much as I sometimes dislike his style because of his size issues, Davenport is no Parker... Davenport's not bad or he wouldn't be there, but he just isn't capable of the things Parker does I'm afraid.

I totally disagree.  Parker is #1 in rushing yards, but only because the Steelers overused him, and surprise surprise, he ends up injured before the end of the season.  Parker has had 321 attempts and 1316 yards rushing.  Compare that to Tomlinson at 1311 (pretty much the same) with just 280 attempts.  Heck, anyone could run for 1316 yards if they ran enough plays.

So let's put things on an even playing field.  WP averaged just 4.1 yards per carry.  That's hardly what I would call "explosive."  In fact, that's hardly in the top 60 of RB's and there's only 32 teams in the league.  Davenport?  He's at least at 5.0 yards per carry and definitely showed his "explosiveness" in this week's game. 

Parker also has just two TDs and four fumbles as a starter in 15 games...not a very good ratio compared to most NFL backs.  And since he's had 32 more carries than the next closest guy, you can't say he hasn't had his chances to score.  Davenport has four rushing TDs and two receiving TDs, with just one fumble, and that's with much less playing time than WP.  Add in that Davenport has fresh legs and a much bigger frame...not sure why Steeler fans wouldn't be jumping for joy that Najeh is finally getting a shot.

According to the Tracking Service my Secret Santa gift was delivered to they house yesterday.  So hopefully they have it and like it.

They did get it and they did like it VERY much!  Thanks DK!

I got my gift out today.  Apologies in advance for the delay, but I was holding out to get a particular new fig.  Hope you like it!

Picked up wave 7 figures with the exception of Anakin (spirit).  Funny, how I still have never seen Wave 5.  I don't think it never made it to my neighborhood.

Keep your eye on Target.  Several Target stores in Minneapolis have started getting Wave 5 again just this last week.  ;)
