Looks like the packaging is changing a bit on this one...

Here's what it looked like originally:

And here's what it looks like now:

Yeah, that's what worries me about the screwhole talk...

EVERY promo picture I've seen uses the "left" hand side of the ship (from the pilots POV).

If they aren't taking ANY pictures for promo use on the other side, there has to be a reason, and the number of ugly screwholes is probably the reason...  :-\


LEGO / Re: TRU Exclusive "Imperial Inspection" LEGO Set
« on: March 1, 2005, 07:57 PM »
I don't think this is necessarily a TRU exclusive.  I saw it at a LEGO store today.

From the official site:

"On the subject of updated sets, Bruns offered a tantalizing glimpse of a surprise Toys R Us exclusive coming in March."

Meaning TRU gets it as the retail exclusive, BUT LEGO can sell it via their stores (retail and on-line) like they do every set.  The same way that Hasbro can get away with selling store exclusives at their "Once Upon a Toy" store at Disney.

What they mean by "exclusive" is that it is not going to be available at Wal-Mart, Target, etc.   I guess, technically, it should be a called a "shared" exclusive. 


Here I'll help out...


I was on MTV.

I'll take anyone from the NY Giants... is Eli Manning still available?


Just give him someone from the Yankees and move on...  :P

LEGO / TRU Exclusive "Imperial Inspection" LEGO Set
« on: March 1, 2005, 01:24 PM »

When the Official Site said "coming in March", they meant it!

The Toys R Us exclusive Imperial Inspection LEGO Set was spotted by yours truly in Minnesota today!

For $49.99 plus tax you get: 
the Imperial Shuttle, four all-new stormtroopers, two Imperial Guards, two Imperial Officers, the Emperor, and Darth Vader.

I like the new-look for the Stormies, very nice!  Too bad the rest of the set is re-hashed stuff...  :(

Well, my wife actually likes to watch "The O.C." so hopefully she'll watch for me and let me know when the commercials are coming on so I can just watch those to try to catch it...

Looks great, Mikey! 

Glad you like the Johnny cases - they work great IMHO.   ;)

Gah  >:(

I will probably buy these, just like I bought the lame Ep1 Deluxe with lightsaber figures and the stupid force flipping figures from Ep2 (thanks to my "I need 1 of every different figure" OCD  ::)), BUT I'll wait until they are on clearance for only $9.99 at TRU before I buy them though. 

That makes me feel a bit better... kind of... I guess.   :-\


Gentle Giant / Re: Bust Ups!
« on: March 1, 2005, 09:33 AM »
BTW, as we discussed a while back, there were TWO different Bobe Fett Bust-ups shown at Comic Con last year. Anyone have a picture of the one that's apparently not going to be available now, which lost out in favor of this Silver crap? I can't recall now what that one looked like...

Here was the picture of the 2nd Fett from SDCC:

Fett #2

Nick said that it was only a scaled down version of the Boba Mini-Bust...

From speaking to the Gentle Giant people in Chicago, they said that the Boba Fett that is just a sized down version of the original mini-bust may not be part of the line.  It might have only been a display piece, and nothing more.

Absolutely, JAWS gains 8 categories, rebounds, blocks, 3's in a HUGE way, and loses only in assists slightly.  Because of that lopsided deal, all 9 of us may as well quit right now.  At least I'm trying to salvage my season.


Nothing like being a bit dramatic, eh?

The Jaws trade (which ISN'T finalized yet and can still be vetoed):

Jaws (Players to Trade)
K. Garnett (Min - F)   season rank 2
A. Jamison (Was - F)  season rank 41
E. Curry (Chi - C)  season rank 185

Dunking Wookiees (Players to Trade)
R. Allen (Sea - SG)  season rank 15
J. O'Neal (Ind - PF) season rank 78
E. Okafor (Cha - FC) season rank 85

Average of Jaws 3 players traded: 76
Average of Wookiees 3 players traded: 59

Brian is getting KG, season rank #2 (and the best player included in the trade), so I'd expect a bit of lopside towards jaws for that reason...

Now let's look at your trade...

Dressel's Rebels (Players to Trade)
A. Miller (Den - PG)  season rank 71
C. Atkins (LAL - PG)  season rank 59
W. Szczerbiak (Min - SF)  season rank 102

The Famine (Players to Trade)
A. Iverson (Phi - G,PG,SG)  season rank 18
A. Walker (Bos - F)   season rank 37

Average of Dressel 3 players traded: 83
Average of Famine 2 players traded: 28
With numbers as lop-sided as this, I'd expect Famine to be getting the #1 rated player at LEAST.  Since I don't see Famine getting any kind of KG quality player, I have to assume it's a crappy trade.

Let's be real here... Give me a break ::)

I really don't see the problem. :-\


The first part of your post is the problem.

You can't just give-up and dump all your good players to the best team in the league!  While maybe it's not cheating directly, it's a close as you can get and it's a pretty crappy thing to do to the guys in 2,3,4 places.  Pretty crappy of you and Dressel to even try it IMHO.

If this is the way it's going to be, where the crappiest team scuttles itself for the good of one of the best teams, then Simon or Brent or Scott you can have Nash, Francis, Camby, and who ever else you want from my squad...

Figured I'd start a new thread for the Deluxe Figure sets since the Carded Figure thread is turning into one giant jumble of stuff...

Revenge of the Sith / RotS - Collection 2 Figures (Apr 2nd Wave)
« on: February 28, 2005, 03:07 PM »
Figured I'd start a new thread since the carded Figure thread is turning into one giant jumble of stuff...

The gang over at Action Figure Times have some great new picutres up of some of the Collection 2 figures that have leaked out early...

- The AT-TE Gunner is FANTASTIC.  2-piece helmet!  Removable Armor pieces!  It is realy a GREAT figure and I'm sure the Army builders out there will love him.

- Mas Amedda, as speculated in the carded thread, he does indeed have a tongue that attaches to his face (just like the nose boogers on Dannik).   ::) 

I guess now PotJ Mechanic Jar Jar has someone to tongue-wrestle with...  :P

Head on over and check out the great loose pictures of these figures!


Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS Dooku
« on: February 28, 2005, 01:47 PM »
He does have spoiler features.  I'm surprised they're putting him out right away, actually.

Dooku Figure Spoilers! - CLICKY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK -

Wow, that's a lotta features in just one basic figure.  Poor Dooku...  :'(
