Same here - Carbonite Han and Jawas are shipping... but Mosep, Boushh, and Thorn are not.  Strange.

Saw Inside Out this weekend.  Fantastic.  Agree with Master Qui-Gon above - another masterpiece.  Can't really say anything bad about it.  Voice Talent was about the best match-up casting I've seen from them yet.

Even the Lava short before the flick was awesome. :)

Watched it tonight with the kids.  Great show.  Loved all the Ahsoka stuff.  I'll guess she's got suspicions but has to come to terms with it before she's ready to admit Vader = Skyguy. :P

Best part was when the 3.5 year old daughter gasped when Vader showed up at the shuttle port and lit his saber... followed by when one of my nine year olds yelled "WHAT ARE YOU DOING, RUN!" when Ezra/Kanan watched Vader get up from under the debris/explosion.  :D

So this wasn't available to the public but a limited give away, right?

Right.  They always have a preview party the night before the opening date and usually have a carded Star Wars Kubrick gift/freebie that is handed out to the guests.

Back in the day, these Parco Party exclusives could command up to $400-550 each back when they were original or repaint figures.  Now that they are just repacks, they have been in the $80-120 range.  Fett's popular, so it may be on the upper end of the range.

Gunjap has nice new pics of the upcoming 1/12 Sandtrooper and 1/12 Scout/Bike figure model kits.

Tamashii Star Wars SHF Display at Tokyo Toy Show this weekend.  Bandai unfortunately blurred the figures, but left the sign to announce...  SH Figuarts C-3PO and R2-D2!

Now we just need to comb through twitter for someone to post an unblurred picture... will be interesting to see how they compare to the Revoltech versions.

The shark is not exclusive.  The "being eaten Quint" and bloody deco shark are unique to the exclusive version. 

The regular version has a scuba tank accessory and non-bloody deco.

Now I cannot recall where I heard/read that at but seem to recall them saying they weren't going to get to ALL the ROTJ figures? 

There are plenty of 2013/2014 GG Q&As that have some variation of "We most likely will not be doing every figure, but highlighting most sought after, and certain characters."

I can't blame then for not wanting to risk a $80 General Madine or whatever.  :P

I think they've seen the end of the line coming for a while now, which is why they've been willing to start up Secret Wars, Super Powers, and GI Joe Jumbo lines to start giving people other things to buy.

In fact, not to be the total bearer of bad news, but there are lots of rumors that the reason they are dipping into the Droids well now is because the end is nearer than you think.  There was no PGM Jumbo option this year, was there?  :-\

JD Sports Forum! / NHL Offseason 2015

Blackhawks win, their fans celebrate.  For the other 29 teams and their fans...  the draft is just 8 days away!   :P

I'm ready to see how the summer plays out for the Wild. 

Do we resign Dubnyk?  What about our other two goalie trainwrecks?  Do we trade someone to open up cap space?  Do we trade any RFAs (Granlund, Haula) because we can't sign them?

Looks like our first move may have happened today - Matt Cooke placed on waivers; buyout next?  I guess the Pens can go ahead and have him back, Jesse.  :D

Not what I was expecting to be our first salary cap move of the off-season.  I guess there wasn't a good trade market for him... can't say I'm surprised about that. 

I liked most of what Cooke brought to the Wild the past couple years (intensity, corner work, PK), but at the same time there were too many flashes of the "old" Matt Cooke.  Questionable high hits and of course the knee-on-knee on Barrie in 2014 playoffs.  Add in the injuries of last Spring and I can't say I'll miss him too much.

Forgot to check back in here, but congrats to the Blackhawks and 'better luck next time' to the Bolts. It was a good series and that's all you can ask, I guess.  No multi-goal leads until Game 6?  Nice.

If Tampa can keep that core together, they look like they'll be going good places the next few years...  :)
