Haven't seen any of these for about a week, but I found one by accident in the clearance aisles today.  It was marked $14, but the priced came up as $10...not bad at $2 a figure!

Piss off for not putting up a spoiler warning.


K - I wouldn't really call anything I said a spoiler.  :-\  You would find out much more than what I wrote if you watched any given 30 second trailer.  Besides - I haven't even seen the movie myself yet.

Picked up Luke and a DS Trooper tonight. They're pretty great.  :)

Are we talking about the same Luke?  Take a look at the neck up...

I think it's OK. My opinion never really jibes with the fandom-at-large anyway.

OK is a far cry from pretty great.  I have to agree with DR - that Luke head sculpt stinks.

A buddy of mine saw the pre-screening for Spidey 3 yesterday and thought it was pretty lame.  Sounds like the symbiote finding Peter is totally random, which is lame that it would just happen to pick him out of everyone in NY.  He also said Sandman has a tiny role, and that he and venom are barely in the film.  What gives?  Sounds like 2 hours of love story/peter dancing around in black vs. 20 minutes of action.   :-\

I picked up the red version of the TRU Bantha set...they should have just made them all red versions - the old style versions don't seem to be selling.

Have yet to see these below $14 in the Mpls area and now they're all gone.   :-\

I gave them a hard time about all the exclusives over the last few years.  Between Target, Walmart, TRU, Online, Mail Away, Conventions...its very costly and time consuming for us completists to keep up.  I also don't see how forcing many of us to purchase these items in the secondary market helps Hasbro at all.

I've heard more than a few responses from Hasbro discussing "other vehicle possibilities" when folks ask about various ships.  Any chance they can give us some more information on what those other possibilities might be? 

This may have been asked already, but would appreciate any answers that I may have missed: What are the chances for more playsets in the near future?  Specifically, any chance of ever having interlocking death star rooms/hallways to build your own playset?  Can you imagine the sales on a "playset module," maybe with a stormtrooper in each pack?!  :o

It was a good episode, not exactly getting as many answers as i thought we may have. The preview for next week looks even better. Ben looks shocked when Locke drops his father's body in front of him.

I have really come to dislike Jack. He used to be the one i dentified with but he is just a complete jerk now even if he does have some kind of plan. Sawyer has grown as a character.

Sayid has very much become my favorite character, i hope they do not kill him off. Very close to Sayid is Desmond, another great character who i really believe is the central character in this all anyway.

Agreed - I hate what they have done with Jack. I don't get the whole keeping secrets thing - how arrogant do you have to be to think you're the only one who can handle the information when all of your 'friends' are always cluing you in to what's going on.  Desmond is definitely my favorite at this point, though I was a little dissapointed that he was willing to let Charlie die a few episodes back.  Glad he came around - that would be hard to come back from.

I don't understand what you mean about Hanso faking the crash? I think the type of fake people are talking about is a cover up crash, not the actual Island arival. I could be wrong.

Well, there are both possibilities for this one.  I don't get why Hanso would create a fake crash in the outside world either.  I hope the writers really think this one through - it seems odd that ALL the bodies were accounted for - I would think that a plan crash 4 miles deep would result in some bodies not being found.

With Johns dad, you know, it's a magic metaphorical box that brought him there, not by conventional means.
That still doesn't explain how Tom Sawyer got to the island...

I'm fairly certain Ben is the actual ruler of the Island, like a president or something.
I think he's managing the others, but someone else that we haven't met is truly in charge.  Remember when he was captured and he confessed that the others were serving a "A great man?"  I think of Ben as the plant manager, but there's definitely somebody else running the company.  ;)

Iron Man's movie armor (red and yellow) has been posted at  Check it out at the linky.

WOW!  That armor looks awesome!  I hope they do a good job with the storyline.  Anyone know who Iron Man's first villian will be?  Mandarin seems like the most likely to me...

Okay, only problem I have with Hanso having faked the crash is that in flashbacks, we see the others watch the plane break apart.  That would mean that Hanso not only brainwashed the survivors of 815, but all the people already on the island as well. 

Here's a question - how in the heck did John's father get to the island?  Sounds like he was kidnapped and brought there vs. some mystery teleportation explanation, but if the others no longer have any communication with the outside world and the beacon is out and the sub is gone - how did they manage this?  Or did they bring John's dad before all of that happened?

Question #2: Why in the heck does John need to kill his dad to please the island?  I thought for sure that when he refused to kill, the others would say that he PASSED the test of not being corrupted or evil.  Whoever's running things has some very odd ideas about ethics.

I saw four full pegs of these yesterday morning.  Went to the same store today and they had 3 starscreams and 1 optimus...someone is buying this crud.

A few local stores still have a couple of Tantiv's for $14 and I have seen a few DV Coin sets for $7, but they are out of both at most stores.  I'm still waiting for O66 to clearance so I can stock up on troopers!  ;D
