Jeff and Mikey - you guys are both using the same display cases, right?  Remind me what they cost again, and where you find 'em please... 

Johnny Lightning Storage Cases, $6.99 each



I haven't seen them at TRU or Target lately, but I haven't really looked lately either.

Miracles of miracles - NEW Force Battlers.

At no less than TWO Target Stores I stopped at tonight, I stumbled across Mace Windu, Clone Trooper and Chewbacca Force Battlers from wave 2.

Maybe there is hope that wave 4 will eventually get released.  I was starting to think all I'd ever see hanging hopelessly on the pegs was the April 2nd stuff.

So, to all of you out there collecting this line (all 3 or 4 of you), new stuff is hitting now!   :P

Logray sucks. ;D

What is your opinion on Paploo and Wicket?

I read JP back in 91 myself, 15 times. I was 5 sodding years old.


You read "Jurassic Park" by Michael Crichton at age 5?  15 times? 

Were all the Berenstain Bears storybooks checked out from the library or something?   :P

I don't need two Jedi Lukes where the only difference is a color change on his lightsaber.

I hear you, I am far more interested in the Chase figures that are "unique" figures than the simple variants.  I love the chases to be like Logray, Carbonite Sickness Han, and Indy instead of just color/accessory variants like the Jawa, Sandtrooper, and Cantina Band.

Yeah, this line has just died.   :-\

They gave us a bunch of cool OT figures last year, but then... eh.

I had to see the RotS wave 2 (kit/mace, r2/droid, chewie/clone) like 4-5 times before I finally broke down and bought them (probably just for the sake of buying something new).

This line had such appeal, but it really has died off somewhat with the introduction of the goofy EU junk.

Why's everyone saying a blue lightsaber for Luke as a chase?.  He never used a blue one in that outfit.  ???

Because the vintage Jedi Luke shipped with both a BLUE and GREEN saber and Medicom LOVES the Vintage Line and quirky things like that.

Congrats to the Spurs for holding on to beat Detroit.

Congrats to Tim (I'd pick him before I drafted Kobe) Duncan on his 3rd title and his third Finals MVP.

Revenge of the Sith / Hasbro at San Diego Comic-Con 2005

At SDCC this year, July 15th is Star Wars Day!:

What's New, and What's Coming at Hasbro
3:30 PM -- 4:30 PM (July 15th)
Room 9

Hasbro's Star Wars Marketing and Design teams will share their exciting plans for this fall, when the toy line will continue to celebrate the entire Star Wars saga in a big way. The team will also have a sneak peek at what's coming in 2006. Start thinking of questions for the toymakers now, as a question & answer session will follow the presentation.

So, we have confirmation that Hasbro will be there and we will get our first looks at some new 2006 stuff!   :)

Kubricks / Show me Your Kubes!

Since we were talking updates to our collection pictures, here's my Kubrick Case with nine empty slots ready for Series 4:




And, not to be left out, my display case with my Speederbike set and my Max Rebo Band:




No carded Kubricks (yet), but for now (until Series 4 debuts) I'm happy with my chase-less Series 1, complete Series 2 and 3, and all 4 box sets (EB Kit, Speederbike, TRU, Rebo).   ;D

It'll probably be $20 unless they pack in an exclusive Plo koon pilot that can actually fit in it.

That's what you'd figure, but with Target's current "let's charge a few bucks more because it's an exclusive" policy (Lava Vader = $13, Clone Trooper = $13), I wouldn't put it past them to hike up the cost a few ($5-10) bucks...  :-\

Is this the same ship from the CW (non-animated) line?

It is a re-hashed ship (the Episode 2 Jedi Starfighter which has already been released 3 times - Saga Red, KB Exclusive w/Pilot Obi-Wan, and Clone Wars Green) that uses the paint job from the Anakin Clone Wars Ship:

You can see from the comparison picture below that while it is very similar to stuff that has been released before, it actually "new" in that this paint job has never been used on this model ship (but it was used on a different model ship).

I was afraid that was going to happen.  When the hell is Target coming to Canada?   >:(

When Canada finally abandons Quebec and joins the USA.   ;)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: 500th commemorative figure... Vader?
« on: June 23, 2005, 03:51 PM »
I still go with the fact that this item was originally planned for the OTC/DVD run. 

So, if it would have come out last year when the rumors first popped up during the late Saga / early OTC stuff, it probably would have been a lot closer to 500.

For whatever reason (probably the RotS Vader hoopla they were expecting/planning), Hasbro decided to hold Vader over until now and as a result there is no way it is #500.   ::)
