That Wild game last night was a joke.  No holding call followed immediately by no offside call and a (shocker) Avs goal to send the game into overtime.  Anyone who doesn't believe the refs can control the outcome of a game needs to watch the last two minutes of Avs vs. Wild Game 5.  Ridiculous.

Snagged Boba Fett at the super-shady K-Mart across town today, still on sale for $17.59 too.  :)

Nice score!  HAve yet to see him in the wild.

My 6" Stormie from Amazon is on the way.  Hope I get a solid paint job...

Wow. Not big on third party stuff, but damn that's neat. And I guess it's time I joined up at tfw2005.  ;D

Be careful over there.  Lots of good guys, but also plenty of fanatics.

I'm not sold on Magnus yet, but I'm liking him more and more.  This is the guy that everyone's talking about on the boards though...


The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

I'm personally disappointed by this move.  I always viewed Star Wars as a level better than other universes because of the work that went into maintaining the continuity across generations of stories.  I think they could have found several EU stories to adapt, and it would have still felt new for the masses.

This said, I plan to view this the same way I view walking dead.  There's an awesome comic universe and a cool alternate TV universe.  I like both and its equally cool to see the differences and parallels.  I will view post ROTJ the same way.

Lucasfilm finally confirms it - the existing post-ROTJ EU is out

They're not discarding it completely, it'll live on as an "alternate universe" type thing under the Star Wars Legends branding.

I wonder what their position is on the pre TPM EU is?  Are things like Old Republic considered canon?

I'm just happy to see the series tied up again.  I feel a lot better about their chances at 2-2 than I did at 0-2.

Luke is about 12", Han is about 12.75", Fett is 13", Vader is 14" and Chewie is 15".

How well do they fit in with old Hasbro 12" or Sideshow figures?  What did you think of the electronics?

No problem! 

I just went back to the page to grab the link to post here to save people time and it's already back up to $39.69.


Wow, that's a price increase of about $3.50 per hour.  At that rate, I'm going to hold onto mine for 6 months then sell him and retire.

Just ordered one for $22.99 on Amazon - we'll see if the order goes through.

There were 7 left (allegedly) when I placed my order a minute ago.

Thanks for the tip.  Got one!

The letter pages in the comic are worth the read as well.

I don't really have a preference for volumes versus individual comics.  I bought several of the volumes when I started just to save money and get caught up.  Then when I was caught up I didn't want to wait 6 months to continue the story, so I switched over ans have read comics ever since.  If you're patient, stick to the volumes.  If you're impatient go with the comics (you need an excuse to go visit Hot Comics regularly anyway). If youre diligent and organized, buy the comics to read right away, then sell them off when the volumes come out.   ;)

Like I said, no trial needed.  If you're found guilty by a couple dudes browsing the internet and called out on a star wars collecting forum, then obviously you're guilty.  Just a few things to consider though:

Is it possible that he threw a party, but didn't commit the crime?

Could the accuser be lying to get back at him or to get publicity?

Would any big corporation continue to publicly support and publicize an employee accused of these crimes?

Just some food for thought for those who have already judged.

As for who you hurt with a boycott, don't be naive just because you want to riot.  The cinemas, studio, distribution, merchandising, and ownable media guys will be far more impacted by a boycott than the director.  If you really want to send him a message, get off your duff and write to someone or organize a protest.  If you feel strongly enough about it to boycott the movie and write about it then spend your energy doing more than trying to influence a handful of guys on JD.

I'm curious to see the Stormtrooper and Fett in person, but would likely still skip at that price.

From what I've read - accusations from a victim who has already had a number of successful cases.  So it's an accuser with some credibility.

So you'd go to a movie directed by Jerry Sandusky (assuming a quality movie with actors you respect)?

Sure. If you're going to boycott the movie, then I assume you will find out where he eats, shops, gets gas, etc. And boycott those places as well, right?  Crap, he likes tacos?  Guess I'm done eating Mexican food.   ::) My watching the movie can't enable or prevent Singer's actions.  If no one went to see it, maybe you'd damage Singers payroll...along with hundreds of other innocent people who have a stake in the film.  Heck, you might not even get your message out - maybe low ticket sales are viewed as a lack of interest in the source material.   People need to think a little more about the outcome of their actions before doling out punishment.  And this is all assuming he did anything wrong - Singer is being viewed as guilty until proven innocent.
