Still though, I want to watch this guy get to 802 goals...

Hmmm... Age 41 at the start of next season, with 61 goals to go to 802.  Even if he gets a few goals in during a strike shortened season, that's still about another 2 seasons he'd have to last.  :-\

"Some people say that bowling alleys got big lanes
got big lanes, got big lanes
Some people say that bowling alleys all look the same
look the same, look the same
There's not a line that goes here that rhymes with anything
anything, anything
Had a dream last night but I forget what it was
what it was, what it was
Take the skinheads bowling, take them bowling..."

Who has he drafted that turned into a player?

It's hard to draft anyone of quality when the league takes away your picks thanks to a secret no-no deal... :-X

Of course, that doesn't really take away the blame from McHale since he was partially responsible for the whole Joe Smith thing.  Sure, McHale had to sit out for a while, but ultimately it really was the team that got punished for that because Free Agency and Trades were the only way to improve the team substantially.

Unfortunately, that's where McHale comes in again.  I don't have a problem with him as a person, but I would have much rather see him gone than Flip IMHO...

That blows.... I hope you are able to get it back.   :-\

What is is with Canada Post and Customs in Edmonton? 

Did you do something to offend them recently?   :(

SpiderMan Box Set A is in stock at

Spider-Man Kubrick Box Set

$40.00 plus shipping.

I'm sooooo tempted to grab this one, but it opens up the Marvel Kubrick floodgates, and I don't think I can afford to go back and grab all the rest of the Marvel's I'd need.   :-\

Scammer. Check his feedback. All the sales are for $0.01-0.02 items.


Over the last 2-3 days, he bought up a BUNCH of $0.01-$0.20 items just to get his feedback up?  That is one crazy/complicated scammer... strange.   Hope no one falls for it.  :-\

Red metallic? Is it a Christmas ornament?

Not quite, it actually looks pretty good carded.   ;)

It is pretty blatent actually... red = Target's colors, and to a lesser extent, red = the lava theme of Ep3.  They must be trying to tie them all together methinks.

Think we've seen the last of vac-metallized figures?  Think again. 

Hasbro wasn't lying when they said that the era of silver figures was over, but apparently they haven't given up on the vacuum-metallized exclusive figure concept just yet. 

The JediDefender News Room has dug up some dirt on a planned Target exclusive for 2005 - Red Metallic Darth Vader.  No details yet on the how or when, but you can expect to add this guy to your collection sometime in 2005!  Watch for more details on this figure as we get closer to April 2nd!

That's right, I'm a nice young lady. 
That's why I promise here and now not to grab your ass if I drink at Celebration 3. 

Damn, there goes black-mail plan #11... maybe someone else can still help me and my digital camera snap some pics of J-MAC is compromising positions.   :-\

I'm kinda liking the look of that R2-D2 "Droid Attack" figure... at least he's different from the countless other R2's.  I really don't mind scene specific R2 at this point because I have so many of the little guy already...

The way it was described to me was that the regional distribution hubs should have the stuff by the middle of March and then a week before April 2nd (last week of March) the stuff will be distributed to the stores individually.

Guess they must not have meant the Sabers, because they seem to be leaking out all over the place... 'scum is reporting ANOTHER early leak:

This time it is the RotS packaging sabers that were found, not just the OTC version w/DVD.   :o  Found at a K-Mart, $21.99 each.

there is much less effort by Hasbro, LucasArts etc. to police stuff up here.

That's the key isn't it.  I don't understand WHY Wal-Mart or Target doesn't just put them out when they get them, after all what is LFL going to do?

I can't see LFL telling the #1 retailer of Toys they can't sell their products?  That's like a death sentence for the line in general (outside of collectors who would just move to Target or TRU).  Especially if Wal-Mart decided to take it out on Hasbro and not sell any of their products at all, a move like that could cripple Hasbro.

LFL can't really do anything.  There is no "next movie" to threaten them with (like there was for Ep1 or Ep2) and they all know it.  Unless there was some kind of specific agreement signed, I have to imagine that leaks will get more and more frequent as we approach April...

I'm hoping I've got a Han bust waiting at home for me tonight as well...

So, looks like it's time for Round 3 on the Gold/Chrome Sandtrooper:

Do I hear $3K?!   :-X

Looks like that last one didn't sell at $3k and he hasn't re-listed it yet.  Apparently there is only one dumb-ass out there willing to pay thousands for this bust...  ::)

I think they kinda cheaped out on the Grievous figure here with the paint details... but I guess that's to be expected in a pack in figure.   ::)

And fine with me, because as others have pointed out, we are already getting Preview Grievous, III-09 Grievous, III-36 Cloaked Grievous, DLX Lightsaber Attack Grievous, etc - plenty of "good" Generals to go around.

From the NHL:

"After rejecting our Compromise Proposal yesterday [Wednesday] afternoon -- a proposal that envisioned opening the season utilizing the NHLPA's own proposed economic framework -- the Union asked that we remain in Toronto for further discussions. This morning [Thursday], we convened at 11:00 a.m., joined by our respective outside counsel Bob Batterman and John McCambridge. We met with the Union for a total of four hours, two-and-a-half of which was spent in caucus. The Union brought nothing new to the table, and they simply covered ground we had covered numerous times before. No new meetings are scheduled and, as far as we are concerned, none are expected. If there are no further developments, the League will make a formal announcement on the status of the season in the near future."

Yet again, the owners are blaming the players, basically saying they (the owners) agreed to start the season using the players CBA pitch, but reserving the right to switch the CBA to the cap at the drop of a hat if economics dictate it as Brent indicated.  ::)

I get the feeling this talk will be done for the year (one way or another) by mid-next week...
