Original Trilogy Collection / Re: OTC Carry Cases?
« on: July 21, 2004, 10:29 PM »
This just in from Comic-Con!

C-3PO case includes Cantina Han and Mechanic Chewie!

Darth Vader carry case includes Carkoon Fett and Stormtrooper!

I wish I could be more excited, but more repacks = me no buy :(

Original Trilogy Collection / Coruscant Wave
« on: July 20, 2004, 04:58 PM »
Well,

I thought I'd start a thread here in hopes of seeing these guys at SDCC this week...

The GH Swami and a few others have forseen that the first wave after the 38 OTC repacks will be the Coruscant wave: Pablo Jill (Jedi), Sly Moore (Palpy's Aide), and Senator Yarua (Wookiee Senator).

I think that, perhaps, the forthcoming Coruscant wave may have accidently been confirmed, as reports are coming in that the latest issue of the SW Insider has this to say:

"since we never saw Sly's hands in Episode II, Hasbro was set to give her birdlike talons in an exercise of creative license. However, this was nicked just in case her hands are visible in Episode III."

Hmmm...

Let's hope we find out more from SDCC!

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Episode III Title?
« on: July 20, 2004, 03:47 PM »

"Attack of the Clones" was announced as the title for Episode 2 on August 6th, 2001 (about 9 months ahead of time).

I wouldn't look for an offical title until late summer of this year...  but it never hurts to speculate :)

:)

Back down to $1.69 today after hovering around $1.79-1.89 most of early July.  I guess I'll have to hit the station on the way home tonight...

Hmmm....

Lots of reports coming in that this thing is indefinately on hold due to some differences in the script again.

Sounds like everybody involved liked the Indy 4 script except Georgie, who after thinking on it, decided that he wants a better/faster/action-filled ending...  Maybe Indy 4 needs a Pod Car Race?   ::)

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Saga Line: The End
« on: July 20, 2004, 10:55 AM »
Did we even see any prequel stuff after the CW stuff?

Hmmm...

Just the HoF Figures (Maul, Anakin, Yoda, Obi-Wan) are the only Saga figures I can remember that came near or after the CW stuff, and those were re-packs and not new figures.

JD Sports Forum! / Re: NBA Offseason
« on: July 19, 2004, 05:32 PM »
Well, if the Mavs do end up adding another piece like Erick Dampier, then I'll have to change my top eight!

Still a few months to go before the new season starts, and a lot of things could change happen to shake up my top eight between now and then ;)

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing too... might have to check Target to see what they do with the old 15GB units.

...

Just did a quick check and...

Amazon.com -  it looks like the 15GB units that are left at Amazon are down to $250 (from $300).  Not too bad.  Same price as the 4GB mini, but 4times the music storage for the slightly larger/heavier size of the 15GB version.

Target.com - seems to still have the 15GB at $300, but with free shipping.

BestBuy.com - sold out of 15GB version

Also, I found the following nugget at cnet.com:

Quote
Some people want to use the iPod to share music between multiple computers. You can, but it's not easy. Syncing to iTunes is possible with only one machine. But there is an unattractive alternative. We were able to copy MP3 files from the iPod to a second computer's hard drive in Windows by turning on "View hidden files and folders" and browsing the iPod's internal directories in My Computer until we found the music. Mac users can do the same thing if they install ResEdit. However, when we reconnected the iPod to the primary machine, the device wouldn't mount as a drive until we reset it.

Sounds like you can do it, but it takes a bit of effort to share music across 2 PCs...
