Other Toy Lines / Re: For the Ralph Malph Fan In Your Life
« on: June 11, 2004, 10:54 AM »
Feh!

Just like every other toy line, the Happy Days line starts out good, but ends up with an assortment of all Fonzies!

Series 1:
Fonzie (classic)
Ritchie
Ralph
Potsie

Series 2:
Joanie
Chiachi
Mr. C
Mrs. C

Series 3:
Mechanic Fonzie
Bike Gang Fonzie
"Evel Kenevil" "Fearless" Fonzie
and, appropriately the last one
"Jumping the Shark" Fonzie

Who'd they take their marketing strategy from?  Mattel?  Hasbro?  They crank out a few villians in wave 2, then it's all Fonzie!   >:(

Well, last night's game deserves a big "Randy Award":




This one goes to "Mr. At-Best Adulterer":


Hero of Game 2, Goat of Game 3.  ONE point in the first half?!?  My favorite part of the whole thing though was the pre-game interview in which this dorkwad was talking about how he'd like to leave the Lakers for the Knicks next year to play with Stephon saying that his heart isn't in it anymore with the LAkers.  

HUH?  Complaining about your current team just hours before a pivotal Game 3 in the Finals?  Way to have your head in the game jackass!

I figured he'd be seated in the Meditation Chamber, so no need for a stand.

I heard the song "The Future Freaks Me Out" on the radio and thought it was kind of catchy:

I saw that the CD was $10 at Target so I bought it.  Great little CD.

Trio of NHL All-Star Defensemen named to Hall of Fame:

Bourque, Coffey, Murphy to the Hall of Fame in 2004

Three VERY talented defensemen.  All three won the Stanley Cup at one point and played for the teams that most of here root for (Edmonton, Pitsburgh, Detroit, LA and more).

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Jedi Council sets 3 & 4

Huh.

Nothing new and no news on Agen Kolar or sets #3 and #4 other than to say they are coming this fall.

Nice to see Hasbro updating their site more often though... they have such a chance to use the site to generate early buzz, but just sit on pictures and info until everyone already knows about the stuff... wouldn't it be nice for them to post a few surprises every now and again?

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: OTC Millenium Falcon

A Special value-pack will be available at Samís Club.

Huh?  What do you suppose they mean by that?  Maybe an OTC Falcon packed with a OTC Han and OTC Chewie?

Maybe an OTC Falcon packed with something else?

Hmmm... regardless, this is a must have for me.  I never picked up the 1995 version because I had the vintage one and was only collecting the figures and "new" vehicles.  I always kinda regretted it.  Now, I can change that by nabbing one of these.

I might even drag this sucker along with my vOTC Han and vOTC Chewie to work with me (since my argument to put it in the living room is going no where).

Well, Memorial Day has come and gone...

The highest I saw prices here reach was $2.299 per gallon, Wednesday before Memorial Day.

Prices have been slowly trickling back down over the last two weeks.  I filled up the car this morning at $1.789 per gallon!  

I was actually excited to pay less than $1.80 per gallon again... funny how time change so quickly.  Seems like just a year ago I was paying around $1.25 per gallon and thought that was high.

:(

I think the gun belongs to PotJ IG-88.



I chopped them up for comparison here:



Anyone else see that, or am I reading too much into tiny details?  It would make sense to me, because they are grinding out more IG88 weapons for his OTC re-card release...

http://lucasarts.com/games/swbattlefront/index.html

Coming for PC, PS2, & X-Box (around $50 at release).

I'd imagine that the figure will come with the PC version (the usual way they do things, consoles get no freebies), but that could be wrong.

Due in stores around Sept 21st of this year, BattleFront is an on-line Multi-player game much like Batlefield 1942 and the rest.  Lots of people running around pounding on each other.

A trailer and playable Demo is set to be included in the OT DVD set, so I supposed if you happened to pick up one of those by chance, you could try it out there and then buy the game if you like it.

Strange looking gun he's holding.

Is that new or from a different figure?  Looks a bit like an IG-88 vintage rifle or something...

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: We Need More Cantina Figures!

From the
GH Swami:

Quote
Hasbro does plan on releasing a Cantina Aliens 3 pack in OTC packaging. While Swami is not 100% certain if Big H will include figures such as Kitik Keed'kak and Dr. Evazon in this new assortment, he'll bet his turban that this will be the case. The 3 packs will come in 2 sets.

Sounds to me like the Swami was on board... did it get conflicted elsewhere?  Maybe we have yet to see it just like a lot of other stuff in that Swami report?

What ever happened to that rumor about K-Mart getting 2 Cantina 3-packs?

We've seen the TRU Jedi Council Scenes, but what about the Cantina ones?  Did K-Mart drop them?  Was the whole thing made up by YakFace?  

 :(
