178 NHL Players Now in Europe

178 Players.  That's about 25% of the Roster spots in the NHL.

Add in other guys who are going to go coach/play for minor league teams in IHL/AHL/OHL/QHL, and you are up to about 30% of the players who have jobs elsewhere...

AaaaaaaaaaH!  A GHOST!

[runs away and hides]

Now I see that Rick at NewForce got a small batch of one of the RotJ wave alternate cases (the one with Vader, Lando, Yoda, Fett and Stormie, but no R2 or Chewie).

What the hell is going on Hasblo!  >:(

Maybe I'll stumble into a whole vat of them at lunch today and then I'll feel all better...


What I still can't figure out, is how the heck did OMGCNFO get the RotJ wave first?

They have to be a small account, yet THEY got figures before KebCo, EE, NewForce, etc?  What the heck is going on at Hasbro?   >:(

I know places like BBTS and Cloud City get them from Asia direct (that's why they cost so much more), but these OMGCNFO dudes are only selling for $1 over retail. 

I'm extremely hesitent to place an order with OMGCNFO because of all the bad press I've read on them AND the fact that the number of these figures they are selling is just not adding up with what we know.  EE can't get stock until NOVEMBER, yet these dudes still have stock to sell after 2 days?

Something just doesn't add up, and I think in a couple weeks we'll see a LOT of unhappy customers here...  :-\

Who else could be made from Indiana Jones that would attract attention?

Something from THX1138?

Dr. Jones, SR. w/umbrella

Or, like Scott said it could always be from a different Lucas Movie:
Howard the Duck

I just wish this dang wave would get here already!!!

I've been waiting for that Chewie for too long!

Well, back to hitting 2-3 Targets a day I guess...

My guesses on the variant have been all over the map the last few weeks...

Carbonite Block  -->  Carbonite Han (unfrozen), Jedi Luke
AT-AT Driver  -->  TIE Pilot
Lando  -->  Skiff Lando, General Lando
Jawa  -->  Some Kind of Droid
Wicket  -->  Any # of other Ewoks
C-3PO  -->  Ep1 3PO, TC-14

But, I'll guess:
Variant - TIE Pilot
Chase - Boushh (pulled from Carbonite Han Box)


Jeff, can you confirm it doesn't have the "not for resale" text on the top?

There is NO "Not for Resale" text on it.

The card # = 6363430100

Possibly change the cardback so they can re-release Han commtech on another card ::)

Dang it!  Have you seen the "rumored" case assortment for the Cantina wave at (Australia):

2x Myo
2x Dannik
2x Feltipern
1x Yoda
1x Han
1x Chewie
1x Stormie
1x Sandtrooper
1x Scout Trooper

No word on if these latest 6 are re-issues of the OTC figures OR if they are re-issues yet again on the 2005 style card.  They do have different UPC numbers, so that means that they won't be "exactly" the same as the OTC carded figures.  I guess we can hope that they aren't too different  ::)

So...anyone else besides me think these will be carded?

I'll guess they will stick with boxed...

One of my "secret sources" ;) are saying they will probably be boxed, but with the larger size box used in some of the other Kubrick lines. 



Got my Battlefront Trooper today.

I ordered from and actually had a good experience!

Looking at this figure, there is no way it is worth the $12 I paid after shipping, but I must satisfy my carded complete-ist habit... it comples me to do so.   :-[

Although, he does look pretty nice hanging alongside RotJ Theater Luke and Jorg Sacul.  :)
