Got another stormtrooper to add to the pile.  Target by my house still has them at $3 each.

I'm seeing a lot of new titanium stuff out, including Starscream and Cheetor.  Target seems to have fresh cases, but the Cheetor was actually at K-Mart (yes, there is still one K-Mart store open).

Frankly, I'm shocked at the pegwarmers around the Mpls area.  There are a few Obi-Wans, R2s, and Bens, which is to be expected.  Vader is always available - not a surprise since there's 2 versions of him shipping between TAC and Legends.  But I'm surprised to always see Galactic Marine, Airborne Trooper, Stormtrooper, and DS Trooper.  People always complain that there aren't enough army builders, but when Hasbro makes them, no one is buying them up.  I have 30+ DS Troopers at this point and I STILL see them all over the place.   :-\

FYI if you read Hasbro Q&A they will not be doing any Vinatge figures..there goes a really great Dengar to round out the bounty hunters.

They are done with the vintage line for good?  Where was this posted?  ???

Quick question for online shoppers - does double box when they ship?  Last year, when I ordered from them, I received everything minty mint and double boxed.

Just recently I received a case that wasn't double boxed and in rough shape. 

Kind of a big deal as I like to keep some figures carded.

Any experiences or insight is greatly appreciated.

I think my stuff from them has always been double boxed.  Themint condition guarantee on figures, so you should send it back and request a replacement if the cards were damaged.  I sent a package back years ago and they were very prompt in sending me a new one.

Got mine already. That was fast.

That is unreal!  I got my confirmation yesterday too, but didn't get my figure today.  Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow.

Haven't got mine yet, but am already feeling bad about buying two of them at these prices.  Ridiculous.  :(

Anyone finding Wave 3 Legends yet?  We had a sighting a few weeks ago in Minneapolis, but nothing since.

I had forgot that I picked up a Vader TIE yesterday. This wasn't the first time I had seen it, but it was the first time I had seen one in a decent box.

Did the same last week.  I don't know what was up with these, but every other DT box I have seen has been bent/creased along the top flap.

NFL fines Belichick, strips Patriots of draft pick

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has been fined the maximum amount under the NFL Constitution and By-Laws of $500,000 for violating league policy last Sunday on the use of equipment to videotape an opposing team's offensive or defensive signals.

In addition, Commissioner Roger Goodell also notified the Patriots that they would forfeit their first-round draft choice in 2008 if they reach the playoffs, or their own second-round and third-round picks if they do not qualify for the playoffs, and that the club would be fined $250,000.

I'm not surprisingly dissapointed, I just don't think this was tough enough, a real wrist slap- if I've ever seen one. :(


That's better than I expected, but agree - I wish the penalty was more severe.  :-\

I couldn't agree more.  I think teams are trying to find an edge, but I don't believe that other teams in the NFL are videotaping play calls from the sideline.  I've heard of teams bringing in former players from rival teams and I'm sure they try to pull any play calling, team secrets, nuances, etc. out of those players, but there is a big difference between that and going against the NFL rules which specifically state that you cannot use video specifically aimed at monitoring play calling. 

A number of players from other teams have come out saying that this behavior is shockingly wrong and I definitely believe them over anyone who says that "everybody's doing it."  But even if other teams were doing it, that doesn't make it right.  It certainly is astonishing how well the Pats adjust to other teams in the second half and how well they've done the past few years without superstar talent.  Hines Ward reitterated his comments from last year about how the Pats "Seemed to know what the Steelers were going to do on every play" during last year's playoff game.  The Packers found the same camera guy videotaping their game last year (the one they lost 0-35) and kicked him out of the stadium, so its not like this is something new. 

Personally, I don't think any punishment is too severe, considering that the Pats may have used this advantage to win multiple Superbowls.  What's really sad is that players and coaches have lost their jobs based on defeats by the Patriots, so its not just some trivial event without consequence to others.  I'd recommend taking away any draft picks for a year, suspending the coach for four games, and fining them a million dollars to really make it sting.  Even that doesn't seem like enough if the Pats won their SB rings because of this. 

I used to think the Raiders were the crummiest team in the NFL, but the Pats and their cheating really take the cake.

Alright Niners..way to gut one out :D

The DS

Wow, how could anyone be a Niners fan after that game last night.  That was brutally U-G-L-I.   :P

Yeah, it takes alot of character to be a fan of teams like the 49ers and other annual losers. I could always take the easy route, bandwagon to a recent years perennial winning favorite such as New England, Indy, San Diego ect who typically win most weekends during the season- but I'm too loyal to my team win or lose.

So no matter how the victory looks (IE see the packer philly game(even lower scoring)) I still am happy with it.

The DS

Lower scoring, but not poorly played.  Alex Smith and Matt Leinart looked AWFUL in that game.  I didn't get to see the Packer game, so maybe it was just as bad.  Props for sticking by your team even in the bad years. 

What do you all think about the Patriots videotaping scandal?  I think they should suspend the coach AND lose a couple of draft picks, if not all of them next year.  Nice to know that these guys were able to steal a few SB rings before getting caught.   :P

One more shout out to Phil for the free Vintage Coin stickers last night.  I was only looking for two, so very nice surprise to get a whole card of 6 from you.  Thanks buddy!
