My second deal with Simon = another beauty! 

Great communication, easy to deal with, and fast to get the product in the mail! 

Thanks again for helping me out, Simon!

Herbie has Lindsay Lohan in it, does it not?  I may have to bring Max to see that one :o :)

Yeah, and she is wearing a racing/NASCAR "trim" fitting jumpsuit in the preview if that makes a difference to ya.   ;)

You can watch the preview here:
http://movies.yahoo.com/movies/feature/herbiefullyloaded.html

Herbie actually looked pretty good.  Quite a few additions to Herbie's abilities thanks to CGI, but I think they capture the 70s/80s Herbie very well.  Glad to see he's basically the same car with a few CGI modifications and not some new style Beetle or anything.

Should be a fun summer movie...

I doubt Iverson and LeBron will have enough W's to be considered too seriously.  Shaq and Wade will split a lot of the Heat votes, as will Amare and Nash for the Suns, which may just let Duncan sneak in for his third.

I agree with this too.  I think Amare and Nash will split a lot of votes, same with Shaq and Wade.  It's hard to be the league MVP if you might not even be your team's MVP.   :-\

I'll guess that Duncan, LeBron, and Iverson have the best shots at the MVP. 

Iverson is scoring a ton and is at the top with assists.  King James has turned around a once hopeless franchise.  But, like J-MAC pointed out, they both might not have enough wins when compared to the other teams (Miami, Spurs, Suns).

If this were baseball (where MVP means "Flashiest Offensive Player regardless of team performance"), I'd give the award to King James.  He's the most valuable to the game and it's future in terms of leading the next batch of super-stars.

However, since this is the NBA MVP (where TEAM performance actually matters to the MVP vote) I have to give the nod to Duncan.  He's is leading the Spurs to the best in the west alone without a Nash/Amare helper.  Near the top in scoring and rebounds, I think it's his.

So, I saw Robots on Friday.

It was actually much better than I was counting on, so that was a nice surprise.

The previews before the movie were fantastic though!  Here's a quick rundown of what we saw:

Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Herbie - Fully Loaded
Sin City
Ice Age 2
Revenge of the Sith

First time in a long time I liked every preview they gave us.

Back to Robots, it was pretty good.  A fun story, an easy message, not too preachy, and the animation was pretty good.

I'd say, if you like other stuff Fox has done (Ice Age) you'll probably like Robots too (although Robin Williams is a little bit too much at times - you're zany Mork, we get it  ::)).

So, I'm headed out this afternoon (with my wife, the in-laws, sis-in-law, niece, and nephew) to catch the 5:00 showing of "Robots".

It's not a movie I would normally pick to see, but taking the niece and nephew should make it more entertaining as well as the promise of a certain film trailer...  ;)

If they don't show the RotS trailer before the movie, there will be hell to pay, that's for sure.   >:(

If they do show it, I'll probably forget to pay attention to Robots and just day-dream abiout watching the preview again...

#52 Is that Jett Lucas?  The checklist calls him Tado

I've heard reports now that there is an updated checklist in the Insider as well.  It fixes the number errors found on the Mas Amedda wave (Polis/Mas/ChopperDroid/AT-TE gunner) and makes a few more name changes such as:

III-47 Meena Tillis
III-52 Zett Jukassa

So, it looks like the Mon cal senator has a name, and it looks like Scott is right and "Tado" is now Jett Lucas's character... must be a little pandering to Poppa George with that one.   ::)

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Galaxies: Who's in? Who's out? Who cares?

Anyone left playing this game?

If so, you may be interested in this:

The second paid expansion is being added in May 2005 - Rage of the Wookiees.

Seems to be adding a lot of Episode 3 content to the game, which makes perfect sense for a game "based" on the era between Ep 4 and Ep5.   ::)

Of course, with all the Jedi running around in this game, it may as well be a prequel era game anyway...

and a pretty small one from State (small is better than nothing though).

ALl I know is that MN Taxes suck

Agreed.

As I said earlier, we got a "pretty small" rebate from State taxes = $3.00  :P

Well, $3 is better than nothing I guess...

Doesn't sound like it will be painted, but rather it will be finished with a weathered "bronze" look.

Here's an updated picture...



Anyone actually bite the bullet and order this one?

Wow.

Just out of curiousity, I spliced the 3 photos together...

Clicky the pic to check out the whole thing as 1 picture:

- I love the fact that the Ep3 Wookiee Warrior is different from the Preview figure.
- I love the fact that there are a ton of Army builder figures in there.
- Still don't know what a #52 "Tado" is, must be some prominent Jedi Padawan I guess  :-\
- #50 Anakin = creepy...
- I like how the picture includes both the blue & red guards!

Very excited to get my hands on these...

Dale - Are you sure you can't send them on a tour of Minnesota for Scott and I to uh "look" at them?   :P

Another lightning fast deal with Jesse!

Once again, I sold some extra stuff to Jesse.  We started the deal, closed the deal, AND he sent payment all in the same day!  Can't get much faster than that!   ;)

Thanks again for the quick and easy transaction, Jesse!  Your loot should be out in the mail tomorrow!

:)
