I'm still looking for Luke and Leia cup sets.

Most Targets here have Obi-Wan and Maul clogging up the works.

I noticed this weekend that the Clone Wars Animated figures are now on clearance, I wonder if these cup-sets will be next...?

Do any of you go to the theatre more than once, or do you go...and wait out the DVD/VHS offering?

Ususally, we go and then buy the DVD if we liked the movie.

Multiple veiwings are a rare occurance these days, usually reserved for SW, LOTR, and the occasional re-release (Superman 1 played a local theater a while back).

And, when regular movies are multiple viewed (such as Sipedy 2 might be), it's usually at a second-run theater (ie the "cheap" movie theater) where the tickets are around $1-2 to see the picture.  No stadium seating or free refills, but cheap movies are always cool...

My little bro took his PS2 along to the cabin this weekend...

After dinner (before headed out for our evening fishing 7-10pm), my little bro and I would take turns flogging poor Gemini Man or some other goon on the MegaMan disc.

He too has gone through MegaMan 2 and 3, but now he's back to MM 1 which he can't seem to beat.  We also played a bit of NHL2004 where the dreaded menace of Jokerit constantly pounded my brother's Maple Leaf squad.

Well,

I just cancelled my wave 1 / wave 2 / wave 2.5 pre-order and ordered 2x wave 2.5 cases instead...

I might have to wait a bit longer, but I'd rather not have all the unwanted extras.  Plus, it'll be cheaper since I have less cases to order and will save on shipping too.

Now, I just need will-power to pass on wave 1 when I find them at Retail...

 :)

Don't know if everyone saw this or not yet so...

vOTC Wave 3 up for Pre-Order at EE

Search for Fett wave 3 to find it...

2x Fett
2x Stormie
1x Chewie
1x R2-D2
1x Lando
1x Vader

 :o

A case pack that doesn't automatically suck?  2x Stormie, the army-builder!  Yes!  I just got done placing my pre-order!

but I really don't need anything at retail so I may not :P

I don't need anything at retail either since I'm expecting my cases on Friday too, but that sure as heck never stopped me before!  

;)

Jeff

Dang!

Back from the lake to discover the OTC is hitting retail!  

Even saw a few reports that the OTC is in Wisconsin!  Guess I better hit Wal-Mart and K-Mart over lunch today...

(good 4th of July fishing, by the way, despite the 50oF weather >:()

[runs to Tydirium's house]



"Ooh, OTC."

*yoink*

[runs home]

------------------------------------------

So, "HandStand" posed Dagobah Luke was wave 9 (aka 7.25).  Check.  Thanks for that info!  

And, on the frayed cards bit, that kind of explains why most of the AFA graded uncirculated figures from Cloud City only had a 80-85 rating.  Gonna be hard to find in uber condition then, eh?

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Tarkin

Uh...

Are you sure that's not a "Staff Guy Only" feature?

The rest of us lowly guys might not be able to do it...
(as in I don't see that "attach" bar either).

It's almost as if, slowly but surely, all the things that kill a toy line are creeping into SW:

- Rotating/changing case packs
- Running variants (Hoth Han, J'Quille/Tanus, Unleashed Clone)
- uneven distribution (was fixed for PotJ, but now it's back)
- gotta catch em all attitude (numbering system)
- repacks and repaints (a la Batman and Toy Biz)
- short production runs (anyone seen the Endor wave warming the pegs? Nope.)

How much longer before they start adding "Chase" figures to the cases?  Watch for the exclusive Red-Stripe Clone Trooper, packed in every 10th case!   >:(

All of the above items kill collector interest.  Declining interest = lower sales, which in turn causes drop of retailer support, which in turn kills a line.

Sliding downhill fast...  Just more evidence to support the case of us "The Line will die by 2006" crazies I guess.

Hmmm...

Looks like my wave 10 and wave 8 are in-stock at EE.

Some lucky people who got in early enough got wave 9 headed their way too...

Jeff

DAngit!

Wave ten is in stock at EE, yet has a different case-mix then when I first ordered it!

I ordered when the case pack said:
1x OTC-02 Yoda
1x OTC-04 R2-D2
1x OTC-06 Luke Skywalker
1x OTC-12 R2-D2
1x OTC-17 Wicket
2x OTC-21 TIE Fighter Pilot
2x OTC-22 Greedo
2x OTC-26 Luke Skywalker
1x OTC-01 Luke Skywalker

NOW, wave 10 has been updated as:
2x IG-88 (OTC #27),
2x Bossk (OTC #28)
1x R2-D2 (OTC #12),
1x TIE Fighter Pilot (OTC #21),
2x Luke Skywalker - Bespin Outfit (OTC #26),
1x Luke Skywalker - Dagobah (OTC #1),
1x Luke Skywalker - Jedi (OTC #6),
1x Yoda - Dagobah (OTC #2),
1x R2-D2 - Dagobah Swamp (OTC #4),

So, now I've got IG-88 and Bossk re-packs, instead of Greedo, Wicket, and a TIE pilot!

Stop messing with the case packs Hasbro!!!
