"Figure comes with removable proboscises, blaster, hookah pipe and base"

Whew!  Nice to know those nose-buggers are removable...

More NEW Basic Figures for 2005!

1)  Congrats on the scores Brian!

2)
The 'QuestionMark' over on Scum is reporting that some
boxes are showing evidence of a tape-cut and tape-over
on these pups. They report that Target went in and
nipped out Boba's firing missle on some (all?) boxes.

ALL of the Boba Fett figures from the Slave 1 from Target are missing the small sidearm AND the rocket.  Not a single one has been found with them.

Target is NOT the one who removed them.  Hasbro did not include the smaller gun on purpose and then Hasbro removed the rocket before they were shipped to Target.  No one is sure why yet, but the assumption is that it was due to some safety standard or cost.

I can assure you that Target did not take out the missile themselves.

I am still surprised that the local Targets here have ZERO vOTC figures.  None on the floor and none in the back-rooms.   :(

Target has this big sale, the figures are popping up all over the country, yet here in MN (Target's HQ) we have nothing.  Usually Target is the best place for shopping, but they've really let me down this time.

Times like these make me glad to have placed that pre-order on-line.  Now I can be done with collecting for a while and not have to worry about braving the stores during the evil shopping days ahead...

Geez, that is one ugly figure.

Well, I guess this handmaiden is better than NO handmaiden?  Maybe?

Can I just say again how impressed I am with my club???

* FIVE Double Plays to get out of trouble!

* An A-Rod homer stolen by Hunter! (I loved A-Rod's little smirk when he saw Torii caught that ball)

* A Sierra (oops) homer foul ball called correctly by the officials!

* Hunter gunning Posada at the plate!

* Santana - 7 IP, 0 ER, and only 93 pitches

They didn't give the Yankees any extra outs, they played great fundamental ball, and they took their chances when they got them.

Very impressed indeed, especially compared to the 7 run - 4th inning tragedy in the other AL series (oooh, burn!)  ;D

I have great faith that my club will jump all over Lieber (14-8, 4.33) and the BRadke (11-6, 3.48) will bring the good stuff... :)

I'll give you a cookie if you finish them...

A WHOLE cookie, and one that you won't even have to share with the rest of the OCB family.   :o

Sucks that I had to take the day off of work today to actually watch my teams in the playoffs.  Still haven't heard an explanation for all the insanely early playoff start times...  1pm for most of the weekday games?  Anyone know why?

The East Coast Bias?

Because your teams were all last-minute additions to the Playoffs?

Because MLB hates you?

WOW!  :o


That's great news, Jared!

It's VERY nice to know that SWShop.com got their kinks worked out.  Seems like they did a good job shipping both the Battlefront troopers and the Holo-Emperor!  Good news indeed!
