900? that's it?? i've got over 7000 sitting here in a shoe box. guess i shoulda put them on ebay when i had the chance  ::)

I had about 8000 points, bt I actually won some things during the auctions, so that ate up about 7500 of my points, leaving me with 500 plus the 400 or so I've earned since last December.

Congrats to the Bolts and Tampa Bay and KBZ.

However, I'll still be rooting for the Flames! ;)


GH's Swami is saying:

Wookiee Warrior
General Grievous
Tion Meddon (Bruce Spence Alien)
Astromech (Obi-Wan's???)

Read Here but be warned of spoilers


My 4 preview figures would be:
1) Gen. Grievous (Droid General)
2) Wookie Warrior (possibly even Chewbacca!)
3) Episode 3 Clone Trooper - just like Episode 2 ...
4) Droid - Obi-Wan Astromech (since fans voted on it) ...



Looks like I picked 3/4!  Go me!

I've got at least 3 on my DL - Mauer, Sexton, Koskie.

Not that that is any excuse...

My team rocks at singles, SBs, shutouts.

I just have no power :(

3PO has got me thinking...

We've seen the ESB figures, but not the cards.

Hasbro has already stated (in the Toy Box column in Insider #76) that due to legal reasons, they will not be able to repro any of the "free offer" like Free 4-LOM or Ackbar, so we know the cards will be the plain versions.

Just thought I'd post pictures of the cards for Vader, Lando, and Yoda:

ESB C-3PO Card
ESB C-3PO (removable Limbs) - see above

ESB Vader Card

ESB Yoda Card

ESB Lando Card

The only new sign of articulation I saw in the Toyfare spread is around C-3PO's midsection.  Right in that area where the wiring trunk meets the upper body is where I think it is.


I just had a preponderance regarding C-3PO.  Looking at that picture of 3PO in ToyFare, I thought, man, that is a funny gap at his torso, when a thought hit me like a ton of bricks.

This 3PO is from the ESB, on an ESB card, right?

What is he has poor articulation because... he has removable limbs?!?

If they do the 3PO ESB Card 100% accurate, he'd have the "removable limbs" tag if they use this card.

Hmmm... hadn't even occurred to me until just now.

Or do you think they'll use the boring basic 3PO card:

What do you guys think?

I guess the survey told them to shaft the JMPs because they are NOT on the OTC packaging...

What to do with the 900 points I have left over?

Kindling/fire-starter for summer BBQ?

Here are some higher res pictures of Leia. Still can't quite make out all facial features though...

More VOTC Leia Carded Photos

VERY nice cards though.  Have I mentioned I love these?


Another intersesting thing to point out about the OTC figures?


From's preview:

So much for any future auctions, huh?

Sorry about that.  The sheer joy I felt swelled up my head and I musta passed out for a minute.

These Premium/Vintage OTC (aka vOTC) are a thing of beauty.

I am glad that the basic OTC sucks, because instead of buying all those repacks, I'll be saving up the cash to shell out for 2x each of these 12 masterpieces.  I'd much rather spend $240 to get 24 of these figures than $240 on 48 recarded/rehashed figures.

Tommorw is Han's turn!

I started reading "Angels and Demons" by that "DaVinci Code" guy, so I'll probably read that one after "A&D".

My wife read both and finally talked me into taking a break from the NJO and old books I read (Camus, Vonnegut, Steinbeck, etc), so I decided to read them.

We'll see how it goes...



RE: your news nuggets on the front page about the Reb and Imp symbols.

Hasbro actually addressed this in the Insider #76 Toy Box column.

They said they simplified it for kids by switching the RED to bad guys, like Vader's saber, and the BLUE to good guys like Obi-Wan's/Luke/Anakin's saber.

I don't have it in front of me, but I can type it up later.

In fact, it was pretty amusing, the whole column was a "here's why we did this" to answer collector comments on:
- The sandcrawler getting dropped by Target after they reported in in Insider #75
- the symbol color switch/swap and why
- the slight change to safety text on the vintage repro cards (can't duplicate old card fronts exactly due to changes in safety codes/laws)

and a few other things I can't quite remember off hand...  dang work is distracting me :)
