Episode 3 iPod Case at

Anyone going to pick up this little item for their iPod?

For $30, I think I'll pass.  Besides, I like my black cushioned sport case a bit better anyway.  ;)

They do plan to paint these before they release them, right? :-\


From the site:

"NOTE: Images shown are 3-D rendered models of the maquette. The final product is subject to change."

Doesn't sound like it will be painted, but rather it will be finished with a weathered "bronze" look.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: The Mustafar Playset...
« on: March 3, 2005, 09:55 AM »
Another Hasbro update today...

Mustafar Final Duel Playset at Hasbro

Vader, who was once the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, has turned to the dark side and now fights on the side of evil against his former master. Vader and Obi-Wan meet in a climactic confrontation and fight to the finish while dodging blasts from a volcano and overcoming dangerous obstacles.

The Mustafar Final Duel Playset brings the dramatic action of Episode III to life with multiple play features and Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader action figures. Battle discs allow you to recreate the Jedi dueling action or launch figures at each other for incredible mid-air battle. Breakaway platforms, a pool of “lava”, and a blasting volcano add to the thrill of this climactic confrontation.

The more I look at it, the more I like it.  I didn't like the Geonosis Arena at first, but the more I longer I own it, the more I like it.  I think this will be much the same for me...

Kobe is definitely not "leading the way" like he should be...   >:(

This is no surprise to me.... Both Scott and I fully expected Kobe to crap out on ya.  Sorry, man.   :(

Of course, up here in the land of Wolves there are plently of surprises to keep me humble in taunting your LAkers.   :'(

Losing to 17-40 Golden-fricken-State last night?  AT HOME?  Yet ANOTHER crappy-ass 4th quarter killed us...  at this point I don't even know why I bother anymore.  ::)

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.

In fact, hey look it's March now!  And the first Twins grapefruit league game is today!

[prompty removes himself from the Wolves bandwagon... goodbye NBA season 04-05]

Anyone interested in having breakfast with Wicket? 

Eh.... not sure if I need to go to this.

I guess, what with it being a catered breakfast, the $50 probably breaks down like this:

$10 - Autograph charge
$10 - Goodie Bag
$15 - C3 Vader
$15 - Catered Hot Breakfast

Or something... So you are probably getting $50 worth of "stuff" if you go.  I think I'd rather have the $50 instead.  I can buy my own breakfast for $5 and Vader for $15.


The new one has a little opening on the lower right hand side, looks like a try me feature was added changing the bubble slightly...


Looks like the packaging is changing a bit on this one...

Here's what it looked like originally:

And here's what it looks like now:

Yeah, that's what worries me about the screwhole talk...

EVERY promo picture I've seen uses the "left" hand side of the ship (from the pilots POV).

If they aren't taking ANY pictures for promo use on the other side, there has to be a reason, and the number of ugly screwholes is probably the reason...  :-\


LEGO / Re: TRU Exclusive "Imperial Inspection" LEGO Set
« on: March 1, 2005, 07:57 PM »
I don't think this is necessarily a TRU exclusive.  I saw it at a LEGO store today.

From the official site:

"On the subject of updated sets, Bruns offered a tantalizing glimpse of a surprise Toys R Us exclusive coming in March."

Meaning TRU gets it as the retail exclusive, BUT LEGO can sell it via their stores (retail and on-line) like they do every set.  The same way that Hasbro can get away with selling store exclusives at their "Once Upon a Toy" store at Disney.

What they mean by "exclusive" is that it is not going to be available at Wal-Mart, Target, etc.   I guess, technically, it should be a called a "shared" exclusive. 


Here I'll help out...


I was on MTV.

I'll take anyone from the NY Giants... is Eli Manning still available?


Just give him someone from the Yankees and move on...  :P

LEGO / TRU Exclusive "Imperial Inspection" LEGO Set
« on: March 1, 2005, 01:24 PM »

When the Official Site said "coming in March", they meant it!

The Toys R Us exclusive Imperial Inspection LEGO Set was spotted by yours truly in Minnesota today!

For $49.99 plus tax you get: 
the Imperial Shuttle, four all-new stormtroopers, two Imperial Guards, two Imperial Officers, the Emperor, and Darth Vader.

I like the new-look for the Stormies, very nice!  Too bad the rest of the set is re-hashed stuff...  :(

Well, my wife actually likes to watch "The O.C." so hopefully she'll watch for me and let me know when the commercials are coming on so I can just watch those to try to catch it...

Looks great, Mikey! 

Glad you like the Johnny cases - they work great IMHO.   ;)

Gah  >:(

I will probably buy these, just like I bought the lame Ep1 Deluxe with lightsaber figures and the stupid force flipping figures from Ep2 (thanks to my "I need 1 of every different figure" OCD  ::)), BUT I'll wait until they are on clearance for only $9.99 at TRU before I buy them though. 

That makes me feel a bit better... kind of... I guess.   :-\
