Word is the only one they are shopping is Sammy C, otherwise its wait and see what happens

There were some more rumblings about the possible J-Kidd deal too this AM, but I think that is more fanboy speculation than serious dealing at this point.

At this point in the year, I sure wouldn't mind Spree/Sammy C for Jason Kidd.   ;)

This game should be out next week (March 1st).

I've downloaded the demo and it has been a BLAST playing through the trandoshan/wookiee mission.  this game is definitely on my "must-have" list, so much fun, so many clones!

Revenge of the Sith / RotS - Collection 2 Figures
« on: February 24, 2005, 11:05 AM »
Hasbro has now posted "close up looks" at some of the collection 2 figures (looks like 11 of the first 12 to me, no Padme). Although not necessarily anything new, always nice to get some official pics of them too.

;)

Looks like the second Batman Box set is out...



In stock at Action-HQ and starting to pop up on Yahoo Japan/eBay Auction sites...

I think I'll pass on this one since it's all re-paints that I don't need.   :(

Nice little loose group shot here.

Weird that it cuts off like that...   :-\

That's because the image is composed of 3 separate .gif files.  Here's what it should look like combined:

Finally, there isn't ONE Best Buy in the entire Upper Peninsula of Michigan (not to mention other countries) so how the hell am I gonna get that one??  Nice...real nice.   :-X

Considering I live in MN, the home-base of Best Buy and there are literally 11 of them within 15 miles of my house, I can keep my eyes open for this for ya. 

Just drop me a PM whenever it gets closer to release and I'll try to help out on them if I can...  goes for you Canadians too.  ;)

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC & VPTC
« on: February 23, 2005, 04:05 PM »
Perhaps my biggest fear is that Hasbro'd try and release these on vintage style cardbacks.  Take a black card, slap Attack of the Clones in a classically styled logo and try to market that.  Essentially I'm really worried they're going to end up cheapening the whole vintage concept for the sake of some $$. :-\

This is exactly what they are thinking of doing.

They would take the Vintage style cards and just transpose them into Prequel movies. 

SW Card style = TPM
ESB Card style = AotC
RotJ Card style = RotS

I don't think that they would be dumb enough to try the vPTC on the unique cards from the movies as it would be kinda lame.  I am totally picturing some crass bastardization of the Vintage cards for this line (if and when it does happen).   :-\

Here's another one....

When you open up a 20oz. bottle of Coke that you got for FREE and find another "You win a free 20oz Coke" under the cap.

I am currently on a THREE free Coke streak.   ;D

Buy one --> get one free --> get one free --> get one free --> ?

Here's hoping when I pick up my next Coke, that one is a winner too!

Kubricks / Series 4
« on: February 23, 2005, 03:24 PM »
Well, for Chases,

Series 1 had 2 Fett chases and both were simple color variants on the arm-bands.

For Series 2, there was 1 simple Color Variant (Sandtrooper), 1 accessory variant (Cantina Band Dude), and 1 unique figure (Indy).

For Series 3, there was 1 simple "accessory" variant (vinyl cape Jawa) and TWO unique figures as chases - Carbonite Sickness Han and Logray.

That's the fun part about Kubricks - no one knows how many chases or what they will be until they are released!  There could be 3 unique figures, or maybe only 1 chase - no guarantees!

And yes, by fun I mean "fun" right up until you realize you have to start chasing figures.   :P

Kubricks / Series 4
« on: February 23, 2005, 11:24 AM »
WOW!

Here's my Kubrick "Most Wanted" list for the next few waves:

Wave 4: Return of the Jedi
1.  Darth Vader (3:12) w/Spirit Anakin Chase (1:96)
2.  Yoda (3:12) w/Spirit Yoda Chase (1:96)
3.  Slave Leia (3:12) w/ Boushh Chase (3:48)
4.  The Emperor (1:12)
5.  Jedi Luke (1:12)
6.  Stormtrooper (1:12)

Cool, I got 3/6 of my Most Wanted in Series 4 and I can handle Bespin Luke instead of Jedi Luke so that's 4/6, very nice!

I'll have to go with the Han for a Variant (based on the fact that the S2 and S3 both had Han variants), but I'll stick with my Spirit Anakin Chase guess for Vader.   :)

I was also informed at Toy Fair by one of the MR reps that they have an SDCC and a C3 exclusive mini saber on tap for later this year.

From forum member Gundam aka Rod at the Jawa:

"CELEBRATION 3 EXCLUSIVE

SUMMER CONVENTIONS EXCLUSIVE
ROTS Anakin Skywalker BLACK SMOKE CHROMED .45 Scale Replica Lightsaber

BEST BUY EXCLUSIVE

Looks like you guys/gals will have some hunting to do...

Kubricks / Re: Power of the Kubricks!
« on: February 22, 2005, 04:56 PM »
Just and after-thought I had. The Rebo figures are first releases, where as the carded ones are variations. That will probably hold the price up.

I think that will play a BIG price in why these stay a bit more expensive, kinda like the Early Bird set (which seems to be creeping up again).

Most (like me) can resist the carded figures since they are variants, but with new figures like this, it's hard to pass on them.

Since we'll likely be lumped together in a group, I'll proably just go where you and J-MAC tell me to go...

For sure I'm going to grab my allotment of 4 C3 Vaders (for me and a couple other local guys) and I'll probably try to buy up the rest of the exclusives as well to bring back here and offer up to my "groupies".

You groupies know who you are... ;)
