Well, we did our games draft last weekend and training camp is right around the corner so I thought it was time for a new thread... :)

After all the drafting, ticket-swapping, and game-sharing was agreed to, it looks like I'm set for 12 games this year for my 1/4 share:

Thu, Oct 23 Phoenix
Sun, Nov 16 Winnipeg
Sat, Nov 29 St. Louis
Wed, Dec 17 Boston
Fri, Jan 2 Toronto
Thu, Jan 8 Chicago
Mon, Jan 19 Columbus
Mon, Feb 9 Vancouver
Tue, Feb 24 Edmonton
Sun, Mar 8 Colorado
Sat, Mar 28 Los Angeles
Sat, Apr 4 Detroit

A nice mix.  Four from the Central (WIN, STL, CHI, COL), four from the Pacific (PHX, LA, VAN, EDM), and four from the Eastern Conference (TOR, DET, BOS, CBJ).

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 6
« on: September 10, 2014, 10:49 AM »
Case of 12 is up for pre-order at EE, with free shipping too!  September expected date.

2x #01 R5-G19
2x #02 Luke (Wampa'd Face)
2x #03 Darth Vader
2x #04 Darth Malgus
2x #05 Starkiller
2x #06 Yoda

Did they pre-sell out or take it down for another reason?

In addition to the set of 6 Jesse mentioned above, the case of 12 is back on the website again as well... 

I'm still not sure why EE pulled it off the site for a few weeks - don't know if they listed it too early and had to pull it or if they were worried about allocation or something, but it's back now along with the set of 6 half-case.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Hero Series X-Wing

I know there's this unbridled hate for this ship, but it's really a shame people don't look at it with a more positive light.  The thought of building this from the ground up was always daunting to me.  Now, I'm just ecstatic they've put out a solid base to work with.

Hasbro apologist!!!  How dare you enjoy something they made without bitching first... if you're not careful some websites are going to be demanding you turn in your collector card.   :-\

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars on Spike TV
« on: September 5, 2014, 04:09 PM »
I thought I remember reading something that when Spike's deal expired (I believe it ended April 2014), Disney was working something out with Netflix.

Industry reports said that Episodes 8 and 9 will fall under Disney's 2016-start deal with Netflix.  I thought I read someone saying Netflix wanted to secure 1-6 rights to air them on Netflix before Ep7 next winter.  Could have been a rumor though I guess...

Re: Attack of the Clones Wishlist -

I will probably buy more AotC figures if they make them (unmade Padmes, Cliegg, Senators), but if Hasbro announced they were never making another figure from AotC again, I'd probably really only miss Cliegg. 

Since we got Owen and Beru and Padme from the Moisture Farm scenes, not having Cleigg and his hoverchair is lame.  I still can't believe they haven't made him yet.  :-\

Star Wars Rebels / Re: TRU Reveal the Rebels: Jedi Battle Pack
« on: September 4, 2014, 10:25 AM »
Yodasnews has posted a nice loose shot of the set, including Holo-Obi-Wan the "Secret Figure".

Does he look that bad?

I think he looks neat... but the packaging calling him a "figure" is a stretch since he looks like a 0-POA mini-statue.

It's back - they must have a ton of these left over at EE. :P

Let the jerking around of the Rebels collectors commence!

ToysRUs Exclusive: Reveal The Rebels: Jedi Reveal Revealed

Hope the Rebels collectors enjoy spending $20 for the exclusive Hologram Obi-Wan "Secret Figure" since you'll already have the basic Kanan and Ezra by the time it comes out!  ;)

Kubricks / Re: Deluxe Series 2 - Hoth
« on: August 28, 2014, 12:19 AM »
I've resigned myself to never having them... unless the same guy who "found" a whole bunch of Logray figures "finds" a whole bunch of these DX chase figures.

I'd love to own Owen, Hammerhead, ATST Guy, and Hoth Rebel, but I'm not dropping a grand and a half to get them. :(

#everysimpsonsever marathon on FXX has reminded me how awesome the first 8 or 9 seasons of the Simpsons were... and how it was pretty much downhill from there.   :-\

Vintage Kenner / Re: Toy Tony carded figures.
« on: August 27, 2014, 10:26 AM »
As for AFA I have a very good Canadian friend that sent in his toy fair Vader to AFA.  He's an excellent collector and a very big vintage carded collector as well so he's quite aware of grading and quality factors for cards, bubbles, etc.  He was pretty convinced he sent in something that should come back as AFA90 and it came back AFA75.  He is absolutely convinced that AFA switched out his Vader for another.  Now, it's completely and utterly anecdotal and there is precisely zero proof behind the story.  But I know the guy, he's been collecting since he was a kid and that's when the movies first came out.  He's a knowledgeable authority IMO and he thinks he was screwed.  I'm betting he was right. 

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time I've heard a story like that.  Others who have made the accusation usually get "it must have been damaged in shipping it to us" and you really have no way to prove anything. :(

The only time I've ever considered grading anything was always when it was an in-person type thing where you're there to watch them.
