This is my first time playing FF so I'm a little in the dark when it comes to the strategy of this...  We need WR, QB, RB and the like yes?  The idea is to have multiples so you can choose who to start right?  Does wanting multiples apply to defenses as well?

Multiples definately applies to Defenses as well, as you have to CYA on bye weeks.  It sucks to have no replacement and get a big zero when your defense is on a bye week.  :(

It's a godd idea, but not a requirement, to have multiples for all positions to cover those nasty injuries and bye weeks.  For 20 players, most ppl would draft:

2-3 QB
3-4 RB
4-5 WR
1-2 TE
1-2 Kickers
2-3 Defense

Just a rough outline of what you newbies should look for :) 

12 Bench players seems like a lot, but with so many injuries and bye weeks, it'll really come in handy.

Bottom line, you're paying $90 for just SIX new figures, which is $15 per.  You might not even be able to move those 3 extra/duplicate ones you get stuck with either.  $15 per is probably too much for just 6 new ones IMO...  If you keep an eye on eBay, there's some real good lots that pop up with this entire wave - which is why I suggested buying each wave all at once, if possible, rather than trying to put them together individually...  Little cheaper that way.

So, does that help?!   :P   :-\

Yeah, that helps.  Thanks for the advise O wise Kubrick Elder.

I think I'll just keep watching eBay until I find a good score...

Zod - Defenses are mixed in with your regular picks... in other words, don't wait until the endor ou'll get junk.

Dave - Scott keeps track of everything and then he has to manually assign players to your team at Yahoo.  Trust that it will all work.  Everything we fine when we tried this for JD.com Fant Baseball this year...

So,

Do we have any inkling on Chase figures for series 3?  Do we get that info early?  Or is it just when ppl start ripping open the boxes and finding them?

(forgive my newbie-ness :()

I wouldn't mind a Chase Ewok or Chse General Lando...

This looks like a pretty good wave to me.  5 figures is better than 4!  And leads to less pegwarming.

 :P

Considering that there will be a case with just the 3 figures from the Coruscant wave, I think we'll still see a bit of pegwarming on Sly Moore and Yarua.

Watto's Junk Yard / StarWarsShop.com "Sale"
« on: August 23, 2004, 11:42 AM »
Well, SWShop.com is now selling individual action figures... and the prices suck.

Take for instance Saga Skiff Guard Lando.  He is on sale for 30% off the list price.  His sale price?  $6.99  :o  yep, that's 30% off their list price of $9.99

Or how about the Ultra Ewok w/Gilder?  Only $10.99, that's 27% off the list price of $14.99   ::)

*cough*ripoff*cough*

 >:(

I hate that place more and more.

The Red Sox swept the White Sox

Thanks!  Way to go Red Sox!  With their sweep of Chi-Sox and our bashing Cleveland, the Twins now hold an 7/8 game lead over Cleveland and Chi-Sox, respectively.

:)

Good weekend... but as Scott said, we play the Rangers soon.  Hopefully the Twins can beat up on Texas and Cali to return the favor for ya Mikey!

So...

Being the newbie, what's the best way to grab a full set (including chases if there are any)?
Ordering a full set?  Ordering a full box of 12?

Where do most of you buy your set/box from?  HJL?  BBTS?  ActionHQ?

Huh, I was not aware of the whole be@rbrick movement.  Interesting.  I have been acting under the assumption that the Wicket was a knock-off like the 4-packs.

Speaking of which, do any of you have those Kubrick knock-off sets?  I saw them on ebay last night, looks like a 4-pack from each OT movie and then a 4-pack of clones.

Anyone have them, or are you all Kubrick "purists"?
