Their [LAkers] wanton laisse-faire attitude to playing is disgusting and there is no way they should win based on the BS way they play when they wanna play...



Just though I'd bump the "I Play When I Wanna Play" Mascot to celebrate the latest "We Play When We Want" effort by the LAkers.

Maybe they want to go down 3-0 in order to REALLY have a challenge?

We broke out the DVDs and watched #1 aka "Stone" last Monday and then watched HP#2 aka "Chamber" oon Wednesday in anticipation.

We don't have tickets yet for HP#3 aka "Azkaban", but plan on seeing this movie either Sunday... or next weekend if we run out of time this weekend.

Looks good from the reviews I've read so far...

Managed to pick up an Anakin cup set last night...

Pretty good overall.  Interesting to see that on the figure, the magnet in his hand is replaced with a plastic plug and his arm is the plastic-peg non-magnet version as well.

The cup is, well a pretty cool cup.

Just need to track down Luka and Leia now...

VADER VADER VADER!

SEE VADER HERE!



"Based on The Empire Strikes Back, the vintage Darth Vader has sculpting and articulation that allow for exciting true-to-life poses. Vader’s ball-jointed knees, shoulders, and angled biceps were sculpted to achieve Vader’s kneeling pose in front of the Emperor in his meditation chamber.  His left hand is sculpted to place around another figure’s neck, providing a powerful choking feature. To allow for greater flexibility while posing, this figure is equipped with a soft plastic belt that was molded as a separate piece and is trapped at his lower back.

The vintage Darth Vader has a total of 12 points of articulation including angled biceps and ball-jointed head, shoulders and knees. He has standard articulation at his wrists, waist, and hips. Outfitted in a classic black soft-goods skirt and outer cloak, the vintage Vader comes with both a fully extended lightsaber and hilt.

For the packaging, we’ve recreated the Darth Vader version from The Empire Strikes Back. Some of the unique features from The Empire Strikes Back include:

Single silver bar around the character image but double silver bars around the movie title
Removal of the Luke & Leia image first seen on the A New Hope packaging
Removal of the price box
Gold accent color behind Vader figure
Coffin-style blister
Butterfly peg hook, die-cut but not punched out!
And the Kenner logo
Check back later to see the vintage Vader in-package."

very happy!

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Hairy Chewbacca
« on: June 3, 2004, 08:52 AM »
I had a dream last night that I found all 12 of the vOTC at TRU and they rang up at $1.97 since the cashier thought they were the old vintage figures.

In my dream, the vOTC Chewbacca was indeed a Hairy Chewbacca, but it was awesome.  Not a flocked monster, not a fuzzball, but it was SO well executed.  If only I could explain how the hair worked.  

*hmmmm*  He was kind of like a little hamster with a removable bandolier.  Man, was it a sweet figure.

Anyway, thought I'd bump this up and share.  It was just another one of those times I wish I could have taken a picture of something in my dreams to show off...

Jeff

ps.
In my dream, R2 had all his gadgets (scope, saber, probe), Fett sucked (Carkoon Fett with no backback), and the Stormie was the SA clone body with Stormie head).  FYI for those who would have asked.

I love the see-through visor on the CCP helmet.  VERY cool.

Leia's dress is a little strange, but I think it's just the paintjob/lighting.  The sculpt looks great though!

Lobot!  No wide stance!  Can't wait to see Lobot's Duplex updated with this guy.  They must be going nuts over at LD waiting for this guy!  :P

Yeah,

I plan on checking out the price at my local comic shop.

If they can get me the 'crawler at the normal previews discount they offer (15%) and the price comes down to $45-50 or so, I'll gladly order one.

After all, I'll have some extra cash in the SW Slush Fund from all those OTC repacks, TRU repacks, and DVD packs that I won't be buying... :P

There hasn't been any word of pack-ins with these vehicles thus far.  I'm planning on putting my Gold Leader figure in the new Y-Wing, and either a Pit of Carkoon or VOTC Boba Fett in the new Slave I.

Here is the Pre-sell at Amazon.com:
Star Wars Return of the Jedi 3.75" Red Y-Wing Gold Leader

Note that its says:
"From the Manufacturer:
This is the 3.75" scaled Star Wars Red Y-Wing Gold Leader vehicle. Comes with Gold Leader Pilot figure. This item was in Episode 6 - Return of the Jedi."

Good chance that the Y-Wing has a pack-in :)

Now, whether the pack-in pilot is just the same recycled figure from the Red Leader X-Wing or Dutch Vander or something else, that I just don't know...

Anywhere from $12-15 per month depending onthe package you buy...

1 mo - $15
3 mos - $42
6 mos - $78
12 mos - $144

They also have 60 day game cards for $30.  A friend and I signed up to 6 month packages at the start, but I've been using 3 month packages since then.

They also give you 30days free when you start...

Vintage = up over time
Modern = down over time

I still think that Vintage figures will hold their "value", because as time goes by, bubbles yellow and there will always be people looking to upgrade their collection, find carded figures, etc.

Modern lines though have 100,000 people all stashing 2-3 carded figures.  WAY more supply than demand.  Every "high-priced" Modern figure has decreased over time.  Remember when Tan-Vest Jedi Luke was $125? Now he goes for $15.  Even TF Vader and Sacul have been quietly slipping in price from the outragweous $300 they started at.

IF the vOTC are going to be as limited as they say, they will probably do pretty well.  This has more to do with the vintage nostalgia factor.  It's those cardbacks that will keep those figures valuable.

As for the modern OTC line, well... it will be lucky to hold it's value through the end of the year, being clearancesd at $2 each by the end of the year :P
