"NEW Cantina Aliens Scene Pack! Exclusively at Kmart This Summer!

From A New Hope, this cantina display was inspired by the scene from the Mos Eisley cantina on Tatooine where Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi hired the services of Han Solo and Chewbacca. The scene includes three alien figures - Dr. Evazan, Wuher, and Kitik Keed'kak and comes with three sections of a bar with six stools and multiple drinking mugs. Displayed in the Original Trilogy Collection black and silver package, this Cantina Alien Scene Pack will be available exclusively at Kmart this summer!"

Saga '02-'04 / Re: mock up prototype 12" stormtrooper?

The other thought was that this could be some sort of Clone Wars 12" Figure....

Either something that got canned for the already-run CW series OR maybe something to go with the Clone Wars cartons next Spring?  Sort of the last transition to Ep3.

Maybe Gen Grevious will be all over the sneak preview packaging to introduce him to those who haven't seen the cartoon?

Lots of possibilities...

Markus Naslund in EA SPORTS' NHL 2005

As Wild fan, and therfore an anti-fan of the Canucks, I was happy to read that Naslund will be the cover boy for the NHL2005.  ;)

With Bertuzzi out indefinately on his suspension and the EA Curse hanging over Naslund's head, it should be a banner year for the Canucks!

Let's just hope that the curse hits NASLUND only and doesn't spill over into the passengers of his car like it did with Dany Heatley last year...  :(

Ooohh.

Aaahhh.

I MUST OWN THESE.

Jeff

ps.
From Yoda's card-back, it appears that C-3PO is NOT the removable limbs version... nice to see the ESB logo SW card though!

Clue #1 It's going to be the biggest thing to hit the net since Google opened its doors.

Clue #2 It takes two, baby

Clue #3



Clue #1 - On-line
Clue #2 - Multiplayer
Clue #3 - Bowling

On-line Multiplayer Bowling!  YES!  Finally the MMORPG has embraced the Pro Bowlers Association (PBA) for a Massively Multiplayer O-line game!  I can only hope that I can model my character to match my all-time PBA hero, Earl Anthony:



Sweet!

« on: June 22, 2004, 09:18 AM »
didn't hear anything about an exclusive - or even a new stormtrooper of any kind.

anybody??

Don't forget abotu the Vintage 12" Stormtrooper:



I think, and this is just speculation, but I think that that might be some kind of Episode 3 sneak preview 12" packaging.  I think the 12" vOTC Stormtrooper is being used in the mock-up package, but the little arm on the cardboard cut-out looks like Gen Grievious' arm to me.  

It is definately NOT the vOTC 12" packaging, so maybe, just maybe it's a sneak look at the Ep3 12" packaging?  Anyone else concur?

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Dagobah wave
« on: June 22, 2004, 09:11 AM »
My pal here at work got his Dagobah figures in the mail yesterday.  He ordered them from one of those high priced shops (over $90 for the 4 figures including shipping).  He was kind enough to bring them in so that he could gloat show them to me.

Anyway, I actually got to hold them and it was great.  Luke's head is little strange, but somehow the vacant stare looks alright.  Yoda was SUPER-COOL.  Obi-Wan and R2 were excellent as well.

The packaging is SOOOOOO sweet.  As others have said at various times, when you get that OTC package in your hands, it's a thing of beauty.   :)

I can't wait to get these myself...

What the heck is IT?

Silver exclusive figures are going to be phased out. Apparently after the Sandtrooper, we probably won't see any for a while, if ever

Good.  I am tired of the Silver Figures... I throught it was played out with the TRU clone, but I can handle one more (the Sandtrooper).

I sure hope that the exclusives don't move to being simple re-cards though, but I fear this is where they will head... OTC Emperor, OTC Ephant Mon, OTC Tat Luke, OTC Anakin, etc.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: OTC Package Insert
« on: June 18, 2004, 12:01 PM »
I was excited to see the return of the insert... one of my side collections.  I've got one of every little insert they've done, including a bunch from Hasbro's GI Joe days too.  (The vintage SW Kenner ones were much cooler).  

I too, must agree that this little brochure is designed for kids to bring to Mom and Dad to say "gotta catch 'em all!"  Proving once again that this OTC wasn't as thrown together as they want us to believe.  I'm pretty sure they had all these repacks planned the whole time >:(

This has NOTHING to do with PotF2, but since it came up, I noticed this on eBay while looking for pictures of new stuff...

From a Cloud City Scalpers Collectables vOTC Han Solo eBay auction:

Quote
Note that the figures have been removed from their Hasbro issued plastic cases. AFA has indicated that they will grade these new vintage style figures both sealed in the plastic cases and out of the cases. However, the fee for grading these figures in their plastic cases will fall under their custom tier for an extra $15.

Looks like AFA will go either way, depending on what you want.  Take it out of the Hasbro Clamshell for regular price, leave it in the Hasbro clamshell for "custom size" pricing ($15 more).

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Marketing Plan Revealed for EP3?
« on: June 18, 2004, 10:43 AM »
My dream would be a series of glasses for Episode III at BK, but with safety precautions (ugh) these days, I doubt it will happen.  The BK glasses from the OT are my favorite items of that era, believe it or not, and to have them made for Episode III would make me extremely happy.

Well, Arby's has those Holiday glasses give-aways, so I think it could be done.  As long as it is sold as a housewares GLASS, and not a pack-in with a Kid's Meal, it should be do-able.  The only reason the Hasbro glasses are plastic is because they are sold with a Toy, as a "toy".  No way a "toy" for kiddies is gonna be glass, but a $0.99 glass with purchase at BK would have me eating a whole lotta Whoppers next summer...

Besides the first song, the rest of their songs SUCK.  So I have Track 1 on repeat

 :P (and a hearty good riddance to that one too, eh?)


Anyway, here's my selection to get me through the day at work:



Needless to say, I've got my headphones on, as some of these tracks are a bit risque... especially track #10 or Track #14.
