Well, talk about timing.

Over the last weekend, our "upstairs" TV (25" Sony, circa 1992) started "bleeding" red.  I could tell that the picture tube was getting worse, but now it is finally getting ugly.  Everything is pretty fuzzy and now the color reds "bleed/streak across the screen.   :'(

The current plan is to take the old "new" TV (27" Magnavox) and move that one upstairs.  That way, the new "new" TV will go in the lower family room (where we do most of our TV/DVD watching).

After looking through the Sunday Ads, we were thinking of going HDTV or maybe widescreen, but haven't really ruled anything out yet.  I guess I'll take some of the recommendations as we head to Best Buy this week to start shopping/selection process for a new TV.   :)

That's a good point.

Will Hasbro call her "Padme Skywalker" or "Padme Amidala Skywalker" or "Padme Amidala"?

I supposed since they were married in secret, she wouldn't change her name... or would she?   :-\

Or, maybe we'll get a Senator Padme Amidala figure AND a Padme Skywalker (Mustafar) figures?

A little late, but I finally got my figures on Friday night.  They weren't at the door when I got home from work, but they were there when we got home from dinner (sometime between 6pm and 8pm they were delivered.

I am pretty impressed with how well the figure turned out and I am very glad it isn't just the Holo-Sidious repack I figured it would be.  There is one thing that boggles me though...

1) - Why no stand?  The rest of the OTC came with the little black stand, why not the Emperor?

Oh well...


My cases should be here tomorrow...  I am very excited to have those RotJ figures!

I should have some extras too once they arrive, so keep your eyes peeled on the Classified/trade section, I'll probably post a new list tomorrow night if you are still looking for Vader/Lando/Fett/Yoda...

I also pre-ordered this wave...

It will be interesting to see how that Sandtrooper is carded, as well as which Carded Han that is.  Is it the OTC, or is it a different Han?  Hmmm...


Once again, the Yankee fans are like, "We're so great."   ::)

You lost game 1.
You BARELY squeaked out game 2 (in extra innings).
You won game 3.
You rallied to win game 4 (again, in extra innings).

You got lucky to get by us, and you'll be EXTREMELY lucky to get by Boston the way they are playing right now.

I won't get into he payroll stuff as it's been hashed out over and over, but some teams only get 3mil a year for TV deals while others get 10x that much.  That's just the way it is.   :(

Go Red Sox!   :P


Good thing I watched the Debate instead of the Twins ::)  Win tomorrow and hope Radke shows up for Game 5 ::) ::)


It's all up to Johan to keep us in it... and if it isn't in the cards for us this year, at least we won one game and didn't get swept.

"The art chose the words," she said.


She wasn't paid to half-ass that. Let her finish that job, and at her own expense.

Sure I'll have a few extras but I can get rid of them in time. Just fun opening them & looking for treasure!  ;)

Unless they are carded.   :(

That will take a lot of the fun out of treasure hunting and opening up those blinded boxes...  :-\

And how pray tell do you murder a deer "primitive" style?

Usually, Primative means Primitive Firearms, such as muzzle-loading rifles, whereas Gun means more modern rifles (like .22s, Shotguns, or AK-47/M-16s if you need that kind of firepower  ::)).

Lots of hunters here in MN (and here at work), and almost all of them go out hunting for all 3 seasons.

Did these ever get released?

I'm still trying to decide what I'm going to do...

1) Order a Full Box - Keep a set for me and then sell the other 6 figures to the local cronies.

2) Buy a set off eBay - maybe get a chase that way?

3) Buy a full set from a retail site - might pay more per figure than if I bought a case, but lesss than eBay full sets?
