You can join the "nice JD guys who got banned" club with me and Dave, who also just like us got banned for simply being JD staff members!

Hey, I resent that!!!  >:(

OK, you're a nice guy... you can be in our club too.  ;)

As for Colman, same room, that's it.  Not sure how well his bulk moves and if I end up sleeping between him and the bathroom, well...

Why do I get a feeling that the sleeping arrangements will end up with you sleeping in the tub and J-MAC sleeping with his head resting on the throne?

Maybe I made a poor choice for roommates?   :-\

Ooops, sorry about that, you can delete the post if need be.

No harm done...  :)

There is enough confusion with all the exclusves planned right now (thanks Hasbro! ::)), I just wanted to make sure no one was getting further confused is all.

Well over at you know where, there are pics of the five packs - and they are exactly as I predicted - rehashes.

Yeah, those are the 5-pack battle builders that we have been discussing for a while now over here.

These are NOT the Target exclusives mentioned in the first post... at least I don't think so because almost all of the e-tailers are taking pre-orders for them.

Hasbro would have to be completely off of their rocker to introduce a new scale - odds are they won't cuz they wouldn't fit in the early bird display!  Right?

But it didn't stop them from doing the same thing to GI Joe...


I mean the fans want something similar to VOTC - if Hasbro introduced a new scale, all of our ships, accessories and secondary characters would be completely obsolete.

Yeah, meaning that you'd have to buy all new ships and and accessories which they happen to also be making, just like GI Joe.  Hasbro seems to think that if they did do a new scale, the fans would all start over - buying new X-Wings, new TIEs, new figures, etc etc etc.

While it may not seem likely right now, I wouldn't put it past Hasbro to try a new scale.   They keep trying various ways to test a new scale (PotJ Mega Figures, RotS Force Battlers), I think it's only a matter of time that they try it for real, just like they are doing with GI Joe this year.

Of course, if the new scale GI Joe line flops horrible this fall (and it seems like it may becaue I know a LOT of Joe Collectors who are pissed about no more 3.75" figures) that could of course change everything.

How much do these cups run?

I believe that they run about $10 each.  And, it would seem they will be packed evenly per case 2x Grievous, 2x Obi-Wan, 2x Clone so tracking down 8 of them might be a pretty hard thing to do...

Thanks for the info Jeff, I'm personally excited about more glass sets, although I know they aren't everyone's cup of tea.  Anyways, it looks like SirSteve's has some pics up confirming the first wave of Grievous, Obi, and the Clone.

Looks like the SSG pics came from eBay:





I like the fact that the cup is different for each.

I kinda wish that I would have known about this sooner, I'd have skipped the Preview Grievous to buy this set.

I guess I'll end up buying 1 of each now...

March was slow, but I still managed spend stick around my budgeted $100 thanks to the early RotS vehicle score...

Unfortunately, this weekend should pretty much blow away my April/May/June/July budgets in one swoop!  If only I had known back in January that there could be 40 new figures in April...  :-\

 ::)

I said it before and I'll say it again:
Make a frickin' decision and stick with it ya bastards!   >:(

RS - Yes Yoda will be at MM
TRU - he's out Apr-10th
PW - MM TRUs will have Yoda
PW - Uh, maybe not out after all

What sucks is that now, I'll probably still head to TRU tonight just in case Yoda shows up since no one has a ******* clue as to what the hell is going on...

Well you're in luck then.  It's $19.99. 

Too expensive for my taste unless it's electronic or something.   >:(

Keep in mind that while the EE/etailer price is $20, it's likely to be a bit lower (like $15-16) at Target/TRU/Wal-Mart I think...
