Wonder if it's too late to do a "FUZZY VALENTINE" exchange ???

I think I just got a fuzzy valentine.  Nice avatar.  ;)

Another possibility that occured to me is that for both AOTC and ROTS, Hasbro released "sneak preview" waves. So if we're getting wave 1 now, wave 2 in March, SL '08 in April - I'm willing to bet we might see a CW sneak preview wave in June and then the onslaught of CW product in August to coincide with the theatrical release of the first three episodes of the series.

When you look at it that way, that's plenty of new waves plus the other lines like comic 2 packs, battle packs (a big seller with kids), and exclusives - there is plenty of product coming between now and the fall IMHO.

Comic 2-packs were listed as delayed as well.  :-\

While I'm disappointed in the outcome (come on, how cool would it have been for the Pats--or any team--to have an undefeated season?), I thought it was a fantastic game.  I can't remember seeing another game I enjoyed more.  Gotta give it to the Giants, and Eli.  That play...holy crap, that play....

I would say that it would not be cool at all.  Not sure about you, but the thought of hearing about Randy and his undefeated season for the next fifty years makes me want to vomit.  Thank you Elly Manning!

There's a trend in the NFL where the team that loses the Superbowl misses the playoffs the next year... I think that since 2001, every team except one has had that happen.  I'm pretty sure the Pats will come out and still win 12-14 games next year though.

Agreed.  I think that both the Pats and the Giants will be back in the playoffs next year.

Really?  You think it will be a rematch of this year's Super Bowl?  I would put any amount of money on these two not facing each other again next year.

WM now has the FF Legends Line on clearance.  Saw the Torch over the weekend for $5, but passed on him.  Never did get my invisible woman.  >:(

THE GIANTS WON!   WOOHOO!  That was easily one of the best Super Bowls in all time history.  What a great game.  I never would have guess that it would still be 7-3 heading into the fourth - all they needed to do was keep it close and get a little inspiration at the end. 

Eli is obviously for real.  I can't believe he escaped that sack in the final minutes! He's going to have magicians calling to ask about that trick.  As for Brady - if anyone has a screen cap of that final sack, please please please direct it my way.  The way he was flying backwards looked like something out of Hollywood.

Congrats to all the G-Men out there and thank you thank you thank you for saving us from having to hear about Randy Maw and Mr. Brady for the next fifty years.  Oh, and Belichick - you're a whiny, classless cheater and your loss proves that there is true justice in the world.  Nice job of walking off early to really prove what a disrespectful baby you really are.   :P

W3 is starting to show up all over the twin cities.  Saw all of them including variants at WM and Target over the past few days.  I will likely have a spare marvel girl and possibly a hydra solder brood piece if anyone needs them.

Brent - if you need me to grab a knight and bucky and ship up to you, let me know.   ;)

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: 2008 Clone Wars Preview Figure?

Ok, if you needed more proof, here is a MUCH clearer pic of the LEGO figs. Rex is CLEARLY marked and is the very same trooper as originally posted and seen in the CW trailer as well.


Awesome.  Thanks for posting!  I'm so glad that the mail away figure is a decent army builder!

Is there a MN group order going for W9?

I disagree.  If they were going to take a breather, they should have done it a few months back when W5-W8 were all hitting at once.  We already have '08 W1 hitting retail, so that means one more wave of new figs for 6-7 months?  That's a pretty long time for collectors and kids to wait, and I can certainly see people losing interest when the gap gets that large.  Marvel Legends was kicking out new figs pretty regularly, but with the W2 stall last year, a bunch of people lost interest ...I can definitely see that happening with SW.  My ideal timing would be a new batch of figs every 8 weeks or so.

Personally, I'm happy to have a break on my bank account and will still collect whenever the stuff comes out, but I don't think waiting this long is a good thing for the line in the long run.

Last night's opener was good - just wish so much of it wasn't recap, as I've laredy been watching S3 on DVD.  Where did they all meet up towards the end of the show?  Was that the front section of the plane where Kate, Charlie, and Jack watched the pilot get killed early in S1?

Don't me wrong, I think any give episode of the CW cartoon is far superior to ROTS, however, this wave just doesn't excite me at all. I look forward to the Obi-Wan and the Quad Clone, but that's it.

Amazing - these are two of my least favorite, though the lancer droid and Scuba clone are actually worse. Sounds like little consensus on which figs people are most excited about, which is my definition of a well put together line (less chance of HTFs and peg warmers).

That pop up thing was annoying at first, but very insightful towards the end of the show.  A lot of others were wiped out last season, so will be good to see who the new baddies are.

wow all figures look SA :o and is it just me or does it also look like its a cloth kama on the clone   ???

I tink its just you.  All three of the aliens in this wave are incredible - great to have the cal armies to fight with shirtless kit, who is probably one of my top 5 figs ever.   :-*

I will miss the coins.....I really liked them.

I'm torn on coins versus stands.  I thought the coins were really cool as well - they look great in package and in the album.  However, I think the basic stands are pretty nifty, and actually useful if you open up your figs and want to display them loose.  What I'm dreading is the  BAF pieces.  ::)
