Yeah, I'm officially screwed too.

I had Wake Forest in the Final Four and Kansas in the Elite Eight.  :(

In fact, after going 24-8 in the first two days, I was royally screwed yesterday - I only picked 4 winners (Illinois, Arizona, Washington, Kentucky) and ended up with 6 losers (BC, Gonzaga, Wake, OK and Kansas & Syra who didn't even win the first round).

Ah well, it's always fun to try.  Maybe next year...

Looking forward to seeing the Speeder Bike set in one of those too.  Might talk me into picking those up myself.

Well, I got a chance to put the new display case on the SW shelf...

I like the way I can show off my Speeder Bike and Max Rebo sets (LOOSE  :-X) and still keep them nice and dust-free.  I think this little case will work out just fine...   :)

Ummm, I think you mean Series 4.  :P

Thank you, Mr. Nitpick.   ::)

Very cool display idea there Jeff. Looking forward to seeing the Speeder Bike set in one of those too. Might talk me into picking those up myself. How much was it?

It was called "Auto Show Case" and it was $5.99 plus tax at TRU.

I'm unsure what these Friends and Family Passes are. Please elaborate. :)

Damn kids and their short attention spans...  ::)

Official Star Wars Fan Club members who purchase 4-day badges for Celebration III during the pre-registration period online will receive 4 Friends & Family passes that they can use to share some member benefits with non-members.

Benefits include:
1) entrance to the Convention Center during the "fan club only" hour before the center opens to the rest of the public. Once inside the center members can enter anything that is open during the special hour with no additional identification
2) Entrance into the Fan Club Lounge
3) One access to other Fan Club benefits if any are announced.

That's what they are.  A way to get non-Fan Club Members into Fan Club "events".  Of course, so far the only "events" they've announced are the lounge and getting in early...

Well, I finally got a chance to open up my Max Rebo set.

clicky for larger image...

Medicom sure loves this line, it really shows what can happen when a company cares about the quality of the product.  The detail on Rebo's Ball Organ is fantastic.  This is such an incredible set and the boxed presentation is equally stunning.

I think these little guys have easily vaulted themselves into my top ten favorite figures... which should last until Series 3 and Vader and the Emperor come out.   :P

Also, today at TRU I picked up a nice car display case that I'll be using for my Rebo Band set.  I'll probably also bust out the Speeder Bike set and set them up inside there too:

Just a reminder since the passes are shipping now...

So, those of us who ARE in the Fan Club can try to help some of those who are NOT in the Fan Club with the passes.

Good thinking Jeff.  I was starting to get a little bummed that a few of our pals (and roommates) might get stuck in an entirely seperate line.  It's gonna be tough enough spending a couple hours in line to get in, so the more, the merrier!

Those of you who get the Fan Club "Friends and Family" tickets and don't need them, please donate them to the "Help a Brother Out" foundation.  Either myself or J-MAC will gladly accept your buddy tickets to re-distribute to the faithful. 

So, send me (or JediMAC) a PM if you are:

A.  interested in giving up your extra "Friends and Family" tickets to
B.  interested in receiving Fan Club "Friends and Family" tickets from a JD member

I'm going to open them numerically, starting with III-1 Anakin Skywalker.  I'll work my way up from there...

Some one please post a warning if you come across a picture of Greivous unmasked cause it's one picture I want to remain unspoiled about.

For Kevin:


Come on, clicky it, you know you want to...

Ew, that is one ugly case. 

Trying to take something that is smooth and rounded and forcing into a rectangular case?  Just looks icky to me. 

I hope that someone else comes up with a better design...  :-\

Yeah, Denver is 9-1 in their last 10 games!  :o

If they keep playing like that both the LAkers and the Wolves will have trouble catching them.

Even the Griz at #7 have been playing agrweat and winning lately...

...Just glad UCLA snuck in there.  Backed in there, more like.  We get Bobby Knight and Texas Tech in the first round, but if we get past them, we're looking at Gonzaga.  Crossing fingers...

Yeah, so that worked out real well...   >:(

Yeah, thanks a lot.   >:(

It was only because of you I picked them in the first round, giving your team a positive buzz.  At least I had them losing to Gonzaga, so it didn't screw me up too much...

Found the new Yoda and Anakin at Target again last night (saw it Wednesday during lunch too).

Ended up picking up Yoda for the nephew.  We've already given him Luke (B-Day), the Droids (Christmas), and Vader (for fun) so far, so Yoda will make a nice little Easter gift for him.

I've heard a few things back from Target regarding the $1 off coupons...

#1 - Coupons will be sent in the mail, not the paper.

#2 - Target got a copy of the mailing list from  If you live within 10 miles of a Target Store AND you are member of Hyperspace, you should get the coupon.

#3 - If you have a Target credit card and have used it to purchase SW stuff in the past, you should get a coupon.

#4 - If you have been identified as a "loyal" Target shopper, you should get a coupon.  (You would know if you are, because you would already be receiving the monthly coupon mailers from Target).

Now, a few clarifications -

These rules are NOT a guarantee you will get the coupon, just the guidelines they used when they were deciding who would get them. 

Target has a set number of coupons going out in each market.  As they are in the business of making money, they only made as many coupons as they could "reasonably" handle.  What this means is that even though you may meet the above guidelines, you still may not get the coupon.  They are sending out coupons to the first xxx number of people who meet the requirements, not everyone who meets the requirements.

I have a feeling that this whole "coupon" thing will make people even MORE upset with Target when people begin to realize that they are not going to be as widely distributed as everyone is hoping and people start to realize how unfair it is that Joe Schmoe got $1 off all his figures and they didn't...  :-\

And I'll add that at this point,  there is NOTHING you can do to increase your chances of getting one.  The coupons are all printed and in the process of being mailed, so don't believe other sites when they tell you "this is what you need to do to get the coupon." 

The coupons should be going out in the mail VERY soon, they are timed to be in your mail box sometime next week (most likely at the end of the week Fr/Sat) so they arrive approx 1 week prior to April 2nd.

After Day 1:

Boston College
West Virginia
Wake Forest

Alabama (lost to WI-Mil)
Pittsburg (lost to Pacific)
UCLA (lost to Texas Tech)
Iowa (lost to Cincinatti)

12-4 the first day, not too bad. 

The best part was that all of the losers I picked to win in the first round, I picked to lose in the second round, so my bracket isn't screwed yet...  :)
