Twin Cities Not So Hot for TV Ratings

And here I thought it was just me who was getting tired of the same old crap on TV.  :P

I read the article above and I have to agree with many of the points the study found.  I know that as I've gotten older, my TV watching has really dropped off. 

Also, as they point out in the article, thanks to the internet, I spend less time watching TV now more than ever before.  I'd much rather drop in here to chat SW with all of you than suffer through an episode of "Dancing with the Stars". *shudder*   ;)


JD Sports Forum! / Re: NBA 2004/05

Here's to another "Who Cares?" NBA Finals!   :P

Game 1:  SA 84, Det 69 (15pt win)
Game 2:  SA 97, Det (21pt win)

Did Detroit even try last night?  They looked like they were just happy to get the hell out of SA and head home...

I said Spurs in 6, but I might have given Detroit too much credit.  At this rate, they'll be lucky not to get swept.   ;)

The Early Bird set deadline has passed (look for a winner announcement soon  ;)), so now we move on to Round 5 of JD's ROTS exclusives giveaway - the Target Clone Trooper!  If you are still looking to add this trooper to your collection and are an active member of the JediDefender forum community, swing on by the main page and register to win!   8)

Good luck everyone!

Setting aside the "EU or Not?" debate for a second...

If you don't have a Target Clone Trooper yet, you may want to check out our new give-away.   ;)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Target Figure with Cup Sets

I found these this AM at Target and did up a little photo piece for the front page...

RotS Wave 2 (OTC Wave) Figure with Cup Sets

I really like the Han cup.  All the Stormies on there are cool.  I had to re-arrange my shelf to get a nice arrangement of all 11 cups.  When they are displayed all together, they really look nice.   :)

Not sure at this time what the cause was but I'm guessing it was a problem with the server.

Yeah, server issues.  I couldn't even connect to JD via FTP last night, so it must have been taken down for some reason.   :-\

At least we are back up now...  :)

Neyo's helmet is a little different:

Eh, my point was that on Utapau, there were different Helmet Clones under one commander.  If there can be different helmets in one unit there, it can happen for Neyo and his grunts too in my little world.

Very nice.  Very nice indeed...

But Jeff, what about the boxed stuff (Max Rebo band, Speederbike, TRU 5-pack)?  You trying to go with both of those too? 

I thought about both boxed and loose, but like you said it's pretty easy to repackage them if you want, so I opened all my boxed stuff (EB, Speederbike, TRU, Rebo).

I have all the packaging saved in case I ever want to re-box them and display them that way (when I run out of room in my cases perhaps), but for now they are all loose.   ;)



Is anyone out there truly "hardcore" about completism in this line? 

What I mean is, is there anyone that does have all the Series 1, 2, and 3 figures both loose and boxed?  After all, it'd be really tricky to have a "MIMB" chase figure, but with an x-ray machine or by pulling them from a master case it would be do-able I guess.   :P

I've been watching the carded auctions every once in a while looking for a "bargain". 

I don't have any yet, but eventually I'd like a carded set and a loose set for the "new" ones - Holo Leia, Droids R2, Droids Fett.  I can pass on an opener Luke, Fett, and Sandy since those are so close to the regular figures.

As for the Series 4 delay -  :(

Patience I guess...

Eh, I still consider the figure one of Neyo's grunts.

On Utapau, there were grunts with both style helmets:

The "medic" Clone has the Neyo style helmet.

I just figure the same was true for Neyo - that is, he had some of these Target Clones off doing something else while he was tracking down and killing Stass with the other style helmet clones...  :P

Either that, or it's entirely possible that Hasbro got the color sceme and then LFL changed the helmet style after the fact.  It isn't the first time that we got a figure that was slightly different then what we saw on the screen.

Personally, I'm not too worked up about it and I actually like the figure.   :)


Feedback / Gregorbian's feedback
« on: June 9, 2005, 11:16 PM »
Yet another fine trader here at JD.  It is my honor to start a feedback thread for Gregorbian.    8)

We swapped some customs fodder and everything went super-smooth.  Excellent communication and lightning fast shipping!

Thanks again!   :)


Other Collectibles / Re: Star Wars "Force Battlers" Figures
« on: June 9, 2005, 04:02 PM »
I'm sorry, I don't think the Yoda/Sidious wave is technically the "next" wave in the line...just the next one they have announced.  I personally am not sure of the order, but beyond the four that are on the pegs now (Obi/Anakin/Grievous/Vader), we've seen upcoming figures of Chewbacca/Mace/Clonetrooper, Han/Luke/2nd Vader, and now Yoda/Sidious if I am remembering correctly.  I'm not sure if that is the order they are going to be released or not.

Yeah, Brian that is still the planned order:

Wave 1:
Ben / Anakin / Grievous / Vader

Wave 2:
Mace / Chewie / Clone

Wave 3:
Luke / Han / Vader (#2)

Wave 4:
Yoda / Emperor

I think so many places are swimming in Wave 1 that the rest haven't had much chance to get out yet...
