Hmmm... not much more than a repaint of Ani's ship.† Eh, I'll probably still buy it, especially knowing that there is an "Obi-Wan Kenobi Red Leader" figure on the way... now if we can only get confirmation that there will be a Pilot Anakin to fly his ship.† †:P

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Greivous Wheelbike

Ever since I first saw the design for this ride, I've been curious to see how it moves, the toy itself doesn't really imply roll or crawl, my guess is that it can do both, sort of like a Droideka - rolls quickly into position and then deploys the legs for stability when engaged in combat.

I'm thinking the same thing... wheel is for quick movement/get-away, legs deploy for battle.  Those claws look like they were designed more for battle than movements.

I agreed with what you had to say, Brent.† I think Linden's move last week was a good faith effort to re-start the talks, but I think that after those meetings failed, I was pretty sure that the NHL's meetings this week were just windo dressing for a final "well, we tried" PR move.† Taking pretty much the same offer back to the players (after they already rejected it once the week before) pretty much proved that point.


Sigh.† No, not surprised.† Disappointed?† Yes.† Not that I expected they would actually try to salvage this season, but I think it's pretty safe to assume that next season will be lost too.


As for another lost season, well I still kinda doubt they will blow 2 seasons.†

I fully expect the NHL next year... with or without the NHLPA is the only thing left to decide.† If the players don't cave in to the owners demands (or the owners don't cave and give up on the cap), I fully expect there to be an NHL but with replacement players next year.

There are plenty of Hockey Players out there who'd love to pull on the Big Boys sweater and go a few games... hmmm, maybe it's time to break out the old skates and get in some training between now and next fall?† †:P

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Creating General Grievous

Or, it could be niether JRD or Bender...

In the most recent issue of the SW Homing Beacon Newsletter, it was revealed that Matthew Wood will be providing the voice of the general.

Not really anyone famous, just a guy who worked on the prequels as Supervising Sound Editor.† Sounds like Grievous voice will be 1 part pneumonia, 1 part synthesizer, and 1 part Czech/Eastern European Accent.† The same guy is doing the voice for the Ep3 Video game as well.

Wow!† Very glad to hear everyone walked away with no "serious" injuries, although I'm sure any of the injuries to the little guys was worrysome enough.† †:(

Take it easy and rest up and let me know if you need a ride or anything, I'm not that far away ya know.† †;)

I don't think Heatley should be treated any different than I would if I were to go down to Minnesota, rent a car, get Scott or Jim or Jeff in the passenger seat and slam into a concrete wall killing them because I lost control due to a dumbass decision to go super fast. What do you think?

Geez, that's a tought one.† I don't think that he should get any special treatment just because he is an NHL All-Star, but aren't there more important criminals they can track down and deport?

It'll be awful tough for him to lose his whole NHL career over one bad decision... but then again the other guy lost his life because of one bad decision.† † :-\


As for lock-out update, the NHLPA had this to say:

Quote
NEWARK, NJ (February 2, 2005): At the conclusion of Wednesday's meeting in Newark, National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA) Senior Director Ted Saskin released the following statement:
"The League today presented a written proposal with minor variations of concepts that were presented orally by the NHL last Thursday. We told the League last week and again today that their multi-layered salary cap proposals were not the basis for an agreement.

Given the status of negotiations, the NHLPA suggested that the parties meet again tomorrow with Bob Goodenow and Gary Bettman joining the meeting."


Here's I'll translate for you...

Given the status of negotiationsTo finally end this pain for the year, the NHLPA suggested that the parties meet again tomorrow with Bob Goodenow and Gary Bettman joining the meeting."

 :P

Yeah, it's looking real good now with Bettman and Goodenow being brought back in.† †::)

† I don't think they'll have any C3 exclusives...

Really?† That would be lame!† They do exclusives for WW and SDCC, but NOT Celebration 3?† I find it hard to believe that a company that is so into exclusives like GG is would skip a chance for a convention exclusive...

Here at JD.com, I currently suffer from avatar-ADD, which manifests itself by causing me to constantly change my avatars.†


My vOTC Han Avatar has lasted longer than any other Avatar that I've had!† A testament to my love of that figure I guess.†

Nonetheless, I feel a change coming on.... goodbye old friend.† :'(

So if it's a two year lockout, how many of the upper-echelon players will actually have a career left starting in 2006?

I have to imagine that a 2-year lockout would cause a few guys to lose a step, especially some of those who aren't what they used to be physically (Lindros, Roenick, Yzerman, Hull, etc).
