Reports are coming in that the Silver Vader 2 is already in the TRU computer system for this fall...

Should be the same gimmick as R2 and the Clone Trooper, buy x amount of SW swag and get a free figure.

Yep, 5 months in prison and $30,000 fine, and then another 5 months of home confinement along with 2 years supervised probation after she gets out of the "big house"...

Martha gets five months

Looks like a valid re-paint/rehash of the DS Droid to me.

Too bad we couldn't get another Droid (R5-D4) and the CT Jawa along with him instead of the Jawa 2-pack.

That set is/was exclusive to the Official SW Convention of Mexico...

Info on the Two-Pack

The convention starts today I think, and that set will set you back 250 pesos (approx $25 USD), IF you can find someone in Mexico to nab you one... ;)

It is not known if it will be released anywhere else, but there were some rumors that it may end up at in the fall, but this is not confirmed.

Forgive my ignorance, but I've got a question for you guys...

I've been vocal in my desire to get an Non-Spirit Ben figure, but I may already have one, for it seems that Spirit Ben Kenobi (Dagobah) is... a kitbashed/rehash.

While goofing around with Ben last night, I discovered that the date stamp on his foot reads "2000", and to top it off he has a little tiny hole in his belt just like the PotJ Ben does.  After comparing for a bit, I feel I can sefely say that Spirit Ben's legs, lower body, and torso are all identical to the PotJ version!  

I think that his head may be recycled from the old Lays Spirit Obi-Wan as well.  As near as I can tell, only the arms and cloak are new... but that may be only because we havn't figured out where they came from yet. :(

So, is he kitbashed?  Or am I just crazy?

Thanks for the update Matt!

I'd be willing to pitch in a few bucks for Patty to tag along and grab me a Silver Sandtrooper... I'd like one of those too, but I understand about the exclusive SW stuff being in higher demand ;)

Only two more weeks until training camp.

My dad picked up a few tickets the other day at work, so it looks like we'll be headed to see the Vikes and the Chiefs Practice Scrimmage in August...

Wonder how the Purple will fair having made no major changes in the Defense other than a couple draft picks and a new Def Coordinator... :(  

Still time to work something out though.  A few goofy Free Agents left out there to sign during camp, right?

I don't know what to say... thanks to a TRU snafu that delayed the Clone Trooper til this spring, we could end up with THREE of these lame Silver figures this year (Clone, Sandtrooper, Vader).    >:(

I'd bet too that he'll be a TRU exclusive just like most of the others since the bubble sticker looks like all the other TRU ones.  Of course, because I have no power to resist, I'll end up with one of these Silver Vaders, but Arg!  Enough already!

I need Luke too... and have plenty of Leia cups to spare.

Maybe we could work out a Leia for Luke cup set swap?

Looks like the ORIGINAL PotF2 Emperor cast as a hologram.

At least it's not the holo-sidious version from Ep1 like I thought  :-[

I'll probably end up getting this one if I can find a Hyperspace stoolie to order me one...

Via the Front page, Jesse lets us know about the latest from the official site...

OTC Holo Emperor

" Exclusive: First Holographic Emperor Figure
July 14, 2004

"The Emperor commands you make contact with him." - Admiral Piett
An essential character from Hasbro's Original Trilogy Collection will be available exclusively through The mastermind of the dark plot that consumes the galaxy, Emperor Palpatine is presented as seen in Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back as an action figure for the very first time.

The ghastly visage of the twisted Emperor peers from beneath his heavy cowl as he contacts Darth Vader via hologram to inform him of a new threat. The Rebel that destroyed the Death Star is none other than the offspring of Anakin Skywalker. From this fateful communiqué, the Sith Lords concoct a new insidious scheme - they will corrupt Luke, and bring him to the dark side.

This new rendition of Emperor Palpatine is now cast in translucent plastic to simulate the ghostly hologram effect. Though only the upper body of the Emperor is seen during this broadcast, the entire figure has been molded, complete with a removable cane accessory to properly depict the character made famous by Ian McDiarmid.

The figure comes in Original Trilogy Collection packaging, with the black and silver Star Wars logo rendered in a style reminiscent of the original Kenner figures. The Emperor: Executor Transmission will be available worldwide only through

The figure is expected to ship in October 2004, in celebration of the Star Wars Trilogy DVD. However, as a special benefit to members of Hyperspace: The Official Star Wars Fan Club, the figure will be made first available for pre-order to members only starting in August. Quantities of the figure will be limited, so you'll want to sign-up today to be ready to reserve yours and enjoy access to other exclusive offers, exclusive online content, six issues of Star Wars Insider magazine, and more."

I got a change to open these up...
and I think they match up pretty well with the older sets.  

Vader is pretty much the same as the first, but the rest are all different.  I took a quick pic with my old Falcon Chewie and 3PO.

I like the third leg on R2, but it makes him a bit smaller than the first R2-D2.

What do you guys think of the whole Boozer thing

The occasional bottle of Canada's finest doesn't make you a boozer...
OH.  You meant Carlos Boozer.

Uh, if he really did have a deal with the Cav worked out and then balked for more cash, that's kinda cheap.  But, if there was no agreement with the Cavs (as he seems to indicate) then it's too bad for Cleveland I guess.

Paxton probably deserves a little heat though for not getting things done BEFORE he got out into the open market...
