Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS carded figures
« on: February 9, 2005, 10:14 PM » has some nice high-res shots up including a spoiler-ish one for Shaak Ti...

However, while there's a panic already over this "feature", her carded figure seems to NOT have the same feature, or it's covered up or plugged with something while the loose shot of her shows the feature clearly.

Huh?† What spoiler-ish feature?†

I've seen a few people say this, but I don't "see" anything... I must be missing something.† †:-\

If you can wait until March, Diamond is importing both the X-Men and the Spiderman sets meaning that you can get them from a local comic shop or on-line.† In fact, most on-line comic shops have started taking pre-orders if you'd like to go that route...

At Mile-High Comics:
X-Men set
Spiderman Set

Otherwise, if you can't wait until March I've seen both the sets on eBay for similar $40 price, but more for shipping.

Dang!† I see it was scooped up within 3 hours of being listed.† That's what I get for going out to eat on a Friday night... >:(

Oh well, I keep looking I guess.  :-\

Lose 5 in a row, win seven in a row, lose 6 in a row.

Ugh.  I am tired of this bad chemistry, streaky junk this year.  Who do we think we areplaying like this, the LAkers?  Maybe KG wants a challenge with a lower playoff seed or maybe he needs a break from the playoffs this year, I don't know.

The worst part is without the Wild, I'm stuck following this train wreck of a squad.  The worst part is knowing that this team is basically the same as last year and it is only their in-fighting and bad seeds that have derailed us...   :'(

Maybe I'll take a break from sports for a bit and just pick up the Twins in March... I can always jump back on the wolves bandwagon when/if they make the playoffs I guess.

ROTS Minis appears to be scheduled for a May release.

RotS minis will be here in April!


The Official Site provides an update tonight on the 60 piece set...

"Star Wars Miniatures has two full sets scheduled for 2005. In April, Revenge of the Sith adds 60 new figures, including key Episode III characters, lightsaber-wielding Jedi and Sith, more Wookiees -- even General Grievous and his bodyguards. In September, the game's Universe expansion introduces 60 more figures from the Original Trilogy era and beyond, and also introduces a big (and we mean BIG) new aspect to the game.

 Each expansion will also be followed by an Ultimate Missions sourcebook, providing new maps and scenarios for Miniature gameplay. Ultimate Missions: Clone Strike releases on March 4, followed in June by Ultimate Missions: Revenge of the Sith, and August by Ultimate Missions: Universe.

Plus, in November be sure to look for the Star Wars Miniatures AT-AT, the most massive addition yet to the Miniatures game."

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Your TV
« on: February 8, 2005, 04:43 PM »
Over the last weekend, our "upstairs" TV (25" Sony, circa 1992) started "bleeding" red.† I could tell that the picture tube was getting worse, but now it is finally getting ugly.† Everything is pretty fuzzy and now the color reds "bleed/streak across the screen.† †:'(

The current plan is to take the old "new" TV (27" Magnavox) and move that one upstairs.† That way, the new "new" TV will go in the lower family room (where we do most of our TV/DVD watching).

We've been looking for a new TV for the last 4 months, and we finally got off our butts and went shopping for a new TV.  We finally got off our butts because the old TV mentioned above finally just up and died.  Wont even work now, tube is completely shot.  Nothing like necessity to motivate you.   ;)

Like I mentioned in the earlier post, we were considering moving the 27" Magnavox upstairs and buying a new TV for the Family Room (basement), but we decided against it.  The wife decided it would be too tricky to accomodate a big TV upstairs (too much rearranging), so we decided to leave the TV where it was and buy a new one for the upstairs.

We finally decided on this little guy:,1058,1398,00.html

Sharp AQUOS 15" LCD

I ended up ordering it on-line last night (as BB was sold-out).  Got a great deal too by ordering on-line (including tax and shipping it was still cheaper then just the best buy sale price).

It seemed to have everything we were looking for for an upstairs TV.  Looking at all the TVs in the 13-17" range, we really liked the color on this guy best.  It isn't HDTV, but rather EDTV (enhanced TV).  We figured that was OK because we don't have digital cable or satellite, so none of the programs we watch now are in HDTV format anyway.

We decided on a slightly smaller screen because this TV is primarily only used for watching the TV news before bedtime or the morning news before work.  We don't really do too much TV or movie watching upstairs, as all the good DVD equipment is downstairs.

All and all, pretty happy with this TV.  I think it should serve it's purpose well.  :)

Starting to get some reports that the Preview Jedi Fighter showed up today at Meijer's on the East Coast.† Apparently it was in the Sunday Ad for $16.99 and they are showing up today.

Shouldn't be much longer and they will be everywhere I would guess...

Hmmm... not much more than a repaint of Ani's ship.† Eh, I'll probably still buy it, especially knowing that there is an "Obi-Wan Kenobi Red Leader" figure on the way... now if we can only get confirmation that there will be a Pilot Anakin to fly his ship.† †:P

Ever since I first saw the design for this ride, I've been curious to see how it moves, the toy itself doesn't really imply roll or crawl, my guess is that it can do both, sort of like a Droideka - rolls quickly into position and then deploys the legs for stability when engaged in combat.

I'm thinking the same thing... wheel is for quick movement/get-away, legs deploy for battle.  Those claws look like they were designed more for battle than movements.


Anyone else interested in these nifty keen 12" Highlander Figures by Sideshow?

JD Sports Forum! / Re: NHL Offseason
« on: February 4, 2005, 04:13 PM »
I agreed with what you had to say, Brent.† I think Linden's move last week was a good faith effort to re-start the talks, but I think that after those meetings failed, I was pretty sure that the NHL's meetings this week were just windo dressing for a final "well, we tried" PR move.† Taking pretty much the same offer back to the players (after they already rejected it once the week before) pretty much proved that point.

Sigh.† No, not surprised.† Disappointed?† Yes.† Not that I expected they would actually try to salvage this season, but I think it's pretty safe to assume that next season will be lost too.

As for another lost season, well I still kinda doubt they will blow 2 seasons.†

I fully expect the NHL next year... with or without the NHLPA is the only thing left to decide.† If the players don't cave in to the owners demands (or the owners don't cave and give up on the cap), I fully expect there to be an NHL but with replacement players next year.

There are plenty of Hockey Players out there who'd love to pull on the Big Boys sweater and go a few games... hmmm, maybe it's time to break out the old skates and get in some training between now and next fall?† †:P

Or, it could be niether JRD or Bender...

In the most recent issue of the SW Homing Beacon Newsletter, it was revealed that Matthew Wood will be providing the voice of the general.

Not really anyone famous, just a guy who worked on the prequels as Supervising Sound Editor.† Sounds like Grievous voice will be 1 part pneumonia, 1 part synthesizer, and 1 part Czech/Eastern European Accent.† The same guy is doing the voice for the Ep3 Video game as well.

So I'm pretty sure there's gonna be an alternate Boba in the mix at least.

Fett #1

Fett #2

But I don't know which is the regular and which is the chase version...† ;)


ps.† was that a positive enough contribution, J-MAC?† †::)
