Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Silver Sandtrooper coming?!?
« on: April 8, 2004, 08:51 PM »
Confirmed!

The SW Official Site just confirmed the Silver Sandtrooper as the convention exclusive...

I like this line:
"A number of these figures will be set aside for future events, and for sale on StarWarsShop.com."

That will help for those who can't go.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Episode III Title?
« on: April 8, 2004, 05:32 PM »
When did we get the title for Episode 2?

I heard we may know what Episode III's title is by June 2004?

"Attack of the Clones" was announced as the title for Episode 2 on August 6th, 2001 (about 9 months ahead of time).

I wouldn't look for an offical title until late summer of this year...  but it never hurts to speculate :)

How about:
Star Wars: Episode 3 - The End of the World as We Know It (and Anakin feels evil).

or

Star Wars: Episode 3 - The Wonder Years!

 :P

Your pals over at Rebelscum are sharing the love.

Even your favorite 'scum forumites are raving!

JD Sports Forum! / Re: Playoffs for Lord Stanley's Cup NHL '04
« on: April 8, 2004, 11:51 AM »
My thoughts...

Boston over Habs (3-0):
A good goalie in Boston = a REAL good chance this year... props to Raycroft on his first Playoff Shutout.  In his first Playoff game.  As a rookie.  Marc-Andre Fleury who?

Avalance over Stars (3-1):
Welcome back Marty!  Little rusty are we?

Detroit over Preds (3-1):
Welcome to the playoffs Nashville!  Scoring 16 seconds into the game!  Awesome!  BUT, obviously someone forgot to tell you that Playoff games last 3 periods, just like the regular season  :P  Seriously though, Detroit has a good track record in losing in the first round, so you've still got a chance.

Evil over Calgary (5-3):
Stupid Canucks.  Ugh.  They better keep scoring goals if they want to win.  Dan Sieve-ier is gonna give up a lot of them...

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Figures You Have Passed On, Or Will Pass On
« on: April 8, 2004, 11:09 AM »
Figures I've passed on?

Um...  Well...  Uh...  That would be... none.  My OCD causes me to collect every last one of 'em.   :-[  If they're just re-released (recarded) figures, I obviously only need one of them for the carded collection, since I've already got a loose (and carded) one from that figure's previous release.  Hate that recarded crap, but of course, I've got nobody to blame but myself for collecting them (and Hasbro, just a little, for rereleasing them).

But when the OTC era rolls around, I will anxiously and happily grab every recarded issue they put out in that line, since the packaging is so damned beautiful!   8)

I concur.

I, too, suffer from OCD.  I buy one of everything carded (including re-card figures) and one of each sculpt to open (ie I bought a CommTech Cantina Han to open, but didn't buy any of the re-issues to open, only to keep carded).  I have NEVER passed on a figure.  

I have no plans to pass up any figure anytime soon, but eventually they might create a figure so lame that I don't need it.  Like if they crank out a Raek MullaCcM (X-Wing Pilot) for Celebration 3 (Hasbro PLEASE don't do that).  I wouldn't want that.  Sacul was one thing, but please end the trend with Jorg.

I have, however passed on vehicles occasionally.  Like the CW re-released AAT.  If they would have packed in a figure though... I'd have purchased one.  It's a disease.

A variant of this disease causes me to have 50+ Clones and 70+ Stormtoopers, but that's another story...

« on: April 8, 2004, 10:44 AM »
My 3 Silver Clones arrived last night from Amazon.com:

Clone #1 - Arrived C9.5 - Minty Fresh!  Yes!
Clone #2 - Arrived C8-9 - Card has a slight crease on the back (from where the bubble is attached), but the condition is better than most.
Clone #3 - Competed crushed - Looked like a fat kid sat on it.  Bubble damage was so bad, the clone wasn't even holding the gun anymore.

So, my Amazon.com service was across the board.  

I kept the minty one, sold the crushed one to my pal at work (he's an opener, so he didn't care) and posted my extra (Clone #2) for sale here at JD.com for someone to buy.

Overall, I'm satisified with my Amazon experience because I got what I wanted, my opener pal got what he wanted, and someone here at JD.com will get one too... (of course, I had to order 3 figures to ensure I got what I wanted, but eh, that's life).

Well, the seasons almost over, so it must be time for me to jump on the T-Wolves bandwagon like a good MN fan is expected to do...

Go Wolves!  Hopefully they'll win enough games this year to make it out of the first round... or at least enough to have more Playoff wins then the Wild.  

T-Wolves Post-Season Record:   7-22 (7 playoff appearances)
MN Wild Post-Season Record:     8-10 (1 playoff appearance)

To celebrate my 200th post here at JD.com:



It's not a pink sweater, but I'm sure someone can fix that with Photoshop or something....

A candid shot from a recent family get together... I'm reaching behind my head in a valiant, but ultimately failed attempt to retrieve the ice cube my sister was kind enough to shove down the back of my shirt.

Sorry, no appendix scars to show off.

How much are these figs going to go for?  ???

I looked them up in the computer (DCPI # 087-06-1014) when I was at Target on Tuesday.  They are listed in the Target computer right now for $5.99 each, and of course, are not in stock yet.

Only time will tell if they stay at $5.99 though... If TRU and Wal-Mart end up charging less, Target will follow.

Twins are on pace for 162-0!

ALthough, Mauer, Santana and Hunter all left the game with injuries last night

Boy, it sure would suck to have any of those injured Twins on your Fantasy Basebal roster...

/DOH!
