I, too, am a crappy division-winner chooser, but it never stops me from trying...

AL East: New York Yankees
AL Central:  Minnesota Twins
AL West: Oakland A's
AL Wild Card: Toronto Blue Jays

NL East: Atlanta Braves
NL Central: Chicago Cubs
NL West: LA Dodgers
NL Wild Card: Houston Astros


So far [approx 25 games into the season]:

AL East: Boston Red Sox
AL Central:  Minnesota Twins
AL West: Texas Rangers
AL Wild Card: Chicago White Sox

NL East: Florida Marlins
NL Central: Houston Astros
NL West: LA Dodgers
NL Wild Card: San Diego


Do I win a prize for having two right (AL Central, NL West) so far?

BTW, I would have given my left nut to be at Target Center last Friday night, even watching the last 3 minutes on TV was goosebumps for me...I cannot imagine the roar of the crowd that whole time...you lucky dog Jeff :-*

To top it all off, it was the first NBA playoff game that I've been to see.

I have NEVER experienced the Target Center like that before.  Although, to be honest, the Wild playoff game last year vs. Colorado (game 4) was a little cooler.  

Still one of the best Wolves crowd I've ever seen.

So, I'm 1-0 with Wolves Playoff games.  Now, if I can talk my buddy with the tickets into taking me to a round two game vs. Sacto, that'd be pretty sweet too...

Other Collectibles / Re: Unleashed Again

I have yet to see anyone produce a picture of the Red Clone with an actual receit. Even then, that might be doubtful especially if both the standard clone and the red clone share the same SKU. I need to look on ebay and see what is there. That usually helps to confirm.

Well, I've seen THREE reports now that these have hit retail.  All were located in central USA (2 in Kentucky/1 in Tennessee) and all three were found at Wal-Mart....

According to those who have found one, the case =
1x Luke Hoth Pilot
2x Chewbacca
3x Red Clone

They are even starting to hit eBay too:
Star Wars Unleashed Clone Trooper RED VARIANT

It's worth it to note that this auction is from a guy in Tennessee too.  Maybe only the those two states are getting this figure? :)

It's looking like the Red Captain Clone Unleashed may be the real deal...

Hmmm...

I did a bit of digging and turned up some pictures of the employees hard at work for Shopstarwars.com:







I am so glad I am not a collector of busts/posters/etc and have managed to steer clear of them after the initial flub.  I'm thinking of trading my $50 GC to a guy for some figures... I'd probably be better off.

I logged in just to check and I dropped all the way to member #823 from #1404 (or something like that).

I can't say that I love the color sceme though.  I agree with the others who thought it was too bright.

Hi Guys,

I wasn't sure which forum to put this in, but Amazon.com apparently has an Episode 3 item up for pre-order!

EPISODE 3 Toy Item - SPOILERS!!!

It's probably just mis-listed, but this might just be our first Ep3 preview item???

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Entertainment Earth and the Yavin Wave.
« on: April 16, 2004, 11:12 AM »
I too, always practice CYA when it comes to pre-ordered figures and still try to hunt them down.

After all, if I find them at retail before my pre-ordered case arrives, I usually sell my extras on-line )once the case arrives) to help my poor Canadian neighbors or otherwise figure-less brethren.  After all, Canadians need love too, eh?

Worst case, I can always return the figures using the receipt from the store from which I bought them.  I'm really not out anything.

Jeff

ps.
I pre-ordered the Yavin case from NewForce and received it in Mid-March.  I just about fell over when Rick and the boys got something before EE!  It's been a while since that happened... Hasbro musta been in a good mood that day.

Imagine what will happen when they get an Exclusive figure or two from Hasbro and 10000 people are trying to order them at the same time

Like, say, oh I don't know...
The Silver Sandtrooper Convention Exclusive?

It will be a NIGHTMARE when that figure is put up for sale on the site...

I'm sure they will work in some crap about how it will be exclusive to Hyperspace members FIRST, then Fan Club Members, etc.

I'm already right there with ya predicting disaster on this one...

Heads Up!

A good friend of mine picked up the cups from wave two today...

He grabbed both Anakin and Hoth Luke Pilot cups sets today at a Target near Madison, Wisconsin (I don't know exactly which one because he didn't say and I don't know Madison taht well anyway).

The case included 2x Anakin and 2x Luke (no Obi-Wan or Maul).

So, I guess they are out there now...

Hall of Justice / DC Pocket Heroes
« on: April 15, 2004, 04:01 PM »
Anyone else collect these?

I do, and I love them.  Sure, they're hard to stand up, they tip over easy, etc. but I really love them.  Great character selection so far.

I finally got a chance to get to the comics book store last night and pick up my Green Lantern box set:
Green Lantern (John Stewart)
Jade
Sentinel (Alan Scott)
Guy Gardner (Yellow Ring)
Green Lantern (Kyle - original duds)
Parallax (Hal Jordan)

I'm a big fan of the Silver Age GLC, so I was pretty stoked to pick this one up.  They look nice with my GL (Guy), GL (Hal), GL (Kyle - new duds), Sinestro, and Guardian.

Anyone else have a craving for DC's Pocket Heroes?

Or am I the only crazy person who buys these...

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Taxes
« on: April 15, 2004, 10:33 AM »
I have a tendency to file my taxes in February if I'm getting money back, and April if I have to pay. :)

This year, not only did I file in February, but I've already received my refunds from both State and Fed taxes.  It's sitting in the bank to be used in this summers construction project:

A Deck/Patio.

I guess I would rather have paid in this year, it would have saved me from a summer's worth of deck-building :P  

Of course, I'll probably be singing a different tune when I'm sitting on a lounge chair on my new deck, listening to a Twins game on the radio on a sunny August afternoon with a book in one hand and a "refreshing beverage" in the other ;)

hehe

On the Wolves:

I must admit that I am VERY impressed.  

A Minnesota franchise (besides the Twins) that actually WINS it's way into a #1 Playoff seed instead of limping into it (a la the Vikings)?  'Bout dang time!

Now that the playoffs are about to get rolling, I think I'll dust off the old "Pooh" jersey and hop on the bandwagon...

Bring on the Nuggets!  Then Sacto!  Then Duncan's Gang!  Woo-Hoo!


On the NBA in general:

The WEST is BEST.  

Utah goes 42-40 and missed the playoffs in the West, meanwhile, they'd be the FOURTH seed in the East  :o

Only 4 Playoff teams in the East are better than .500, 2 are at .500, and 2 are below .500!  How in the hell can you go 36-46 and STILL make the playoffs (Boston)?  What the heck?

Dang, the East sucks.  To me, that makes the T-wolves #1 seed in the West even MORE impressive.

Which Han Solo is that a re-issue of?...looks likes something from the darkest days of Power Of The Fat  :(

It is a Han that is kit-bashed and cobbled together from the CommTech Cantina Han (upper half) and the PotJ Bespin Han (lower half).

GH.com had a pretty good comparison photo here:
