Two more checks cashed this week, but no indication of shipping.   :-\

Just keep an eye on scifigenre, they are a good source for the DCD stuff since you get your comics there anyway.  The figures were just solicited by DCD on Monday and it usually takes scifigenre a few weeks to add them to the site after they are announced.

I always forget about them for figs.  Thanks for the tip, Swami!

Why don't you believe there were any hot looking female Imperial Officers based on the film? Is it because all the Imperials are played by old ugly union british actors? Why couldn't the imperial bridge have people that looked like the ones on the bridge of Battlestar Galactica or Firefly?  Where does Admiral Daala fit in to this view?

Personally, I'm a little torn on this.  The problem is that Lucas didn't have the forethought to include more alien rebels and women in ANH.  They eventually got around to more aliens by ROTJ and I think it makes sense that there are imperial women and rebel pilots, but it does feel a bit off because we don't see any in the films.  The female rebel pilot is a little more pallatable for me than the female imperial officer, however.  Maybe its just me, but I've gotten the sense from both the movies and EU that the Empire was intended to have a little bit of the "Master Race" thing going on. That seems to also exclude women and non-caucasions.  Based on the lack of women in the Empire (Daala and Mara are the only two I can think of off hand), it feels like this was pretty much an old boy's club of white guys.  If not, why not make a black male imperial officer, like they've done with so many of the Rebels and other factions?

Saw the castle, latest wave of figs, and deluxe figs at TRU today.  They appear to be close to SW scale, and I almost bought the man/goat thingie for a custom jedi, but chickened out at the last minute.

These are sold as a 4-pack? 

No, the JLI figures are a regular wave of figures and not a box set.

Any idea how to order them individually?  The linky Jay posted appears to just be selling them as a set of four.   :-\

Post count        Rank

       0 - 99          Jedi Apprentice
   100 - 999        Jedi Knight
 1,000 - 2,499    Jedi Master
 2,500 - 7,499    Jedi Council
 7,500 +             Yoda

What do you think about having a rank somewhere around the 5,000 mark?  Seriously, the 2500 people are a little different from the 7000 people, aren'y they?  Really?   ;)

Welcome to the forums Tim!  Your brother is Mikey D? Well then you'd have to be both younger and better looking, but that's not really saying much.   ;)

Here's your first Target Insider Question:

A friend of mine recently noticed that when you punch in the DPCI on a price/stockroom checker for TAC figures, an Asterix (*) shows up after the DPCI.  Any idea what this means?

Damn, that black canary looks to be a great base for a mockingbird custom.  These are sold as a 4-pack?  Anyone interested in the Batman & G'nort figs?

Anyone looking for just the Ywing and not the figures?  I found a few more of these today, but am not really interested in the ship.  Send me a PM if you want to split the cost to get the Ywing.

Picked up a Jump Trooper & Evo Trooper at TRU.  Then found Zev, Neyo Trooper, and Utapau Legends at the Target across the street.  Not a bad day!

This line is sucking wind everywhere I go.  Serious heating up the pegs even more than the Marvel Legends figs.  :(

- Chase teela (WM Exlcusive with Videotape strapped to front)

A few too many if you ask me...

Dude, just go throw on your Broncos Jersey and fill up on some Mountain High Yogurt.

I think there's a couple guys from that area around here, but they never talk.   ;)

LMAO!  We have a pretty large MN chapter (see Jeff's linky above) and meet up monthly to hang out if you're interested. What kind of work are you looking for?  MAybe someone in the group can help out. Welcome to Minnesota, eh!

Updated with items gone and pending.  Added a few new wants as well.
