I'm still trying to decide what I'm going to do...

1) Order a Full Box - Keep a set for me and then sell the other 6 figures to the local cronies.

2) Buy a set off eBay - maybe get a chase that way?

3) Buy a full set from a retail site - might pay more per figure than if I bought a case, but lesss than eBay full sets?

I've got R2/3PO and Yoda, so I ordered the Jawa set as well.

Every year in my SW Room, I set up a little mini-tree (2-ft) with a string of blinky lights and my SW Ornaments (I collect the SW Vehicle ornaments only) and then I place the Holiday Figures around the tree.  The more I look at them, the more I think they'll fit in OK.

My wife is happy because it keeps the SW "crap" off of her "elegant" looking tree, and I am happy because I get to have the multi-colored blinky lights I like and SW Christmas tree for my own.


What kind of cookie?  I loves me them White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies

After thorough debate, we have agreed to acquiesce to your request.

A White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookie it will be.

Is a Mrs. Field's cookie OK?

I'm starting to see a SoxTwins-Cards World Series...eeks are they both great teams. 

There I fixed that for you.   ;)

Keep those lists coming... get off your butts procrastinators!   :P

Well, my wave 3 case is en route from EE so I've got Lando on the way, but I still need to track down another 3PO.

Anyone notice how he seems to be so much harder to find than his ESB compatriots (Vader, Yoda, Lando)?

Haven't seen anymore action on this in a while.  I guess the guy who found it early was just a fluke?

No mention of it in any upcoming catalogs or ads yet.   :(

Finally got an answer on why the Jawas are cheaper in the catalog...

"PLEASE NOTE: Some copies of our 2004 Halloween catalog have an incorrect price listed for this item. As stated throughout our catalog, prices are subject to change. In this particular case, this was a typographical error. This item has only been offered at $17.99. No units have been offered at any other retail price."

I guess it was just an "oops"

I'm almost positive I heard he can't play this year for any team let alone the Dolphins

I believe you are right Scott...

They were talking on the radio and according to NFL by-laws, Bongy Williams would have only missed 4 games as a suspension, BUT because he filed retirement papers to try to avoid the suspension, he would now have to serve a 1-year suspension:

Under league rules, a player in the NFL's drug program faces suspension if he returns in the calendar year after he announces his retirement. If he returns after a year, he faces a lesser suspension.

Williams wants NFL to clarify his eligibility

So, if Ricky comes back before the 1-yr anniversay of his retirement, he faces a larger suspension (likely 1 year).  If he comes back after 1 year has passed from his retirement date, he would STILL have to serve the 4 game suspension for drug abuse that started the whole thing.

Either way, he most likely won't be back in the NFL officially until 2005.

"Figure comes with removable proboscises, blaster, hookah pipe and base"

Whew!  Nice to know those nose-buggers are removable...

More NEW Basic Figures for 2005!

1)  Congrats on the scores Brian!

The 'QuestionMark' over on Scum is reporting that some
boxes are showing evidence of a tape-cut and tape-over
on these pups. They report that Target went in and
nipped out Boba's firing missle on some (all?) boxes.

ALL of the Boba Fett figures from the Slave 1 from Target are missing the small sidearm AND the rocket.  Not a single one has been found with them.

Target is NOT the one who removed them.  Hasbro did not include the smaller gun on purpose and then Hasbro removed the rocket before they were shipped to Target.  No one is sure why yet, but the assumption is that it was due to some safety standard or cost.

I can assure you that Target did not take out the missile themselves.


I'm Nervous to see Nathan out there again though :-\...


[holding breath]

I am still surprised that the local Targets here have ZERO vOTC figures.  None on the floor and none in the back-rooms.   :(

Target has this big sale, the figures are popping up all over the country, yet here in MN (Target's HQ) we have nothing.  Usually Target is the best place for shopping, but they've really let me down this time.

Times like these make me glad to have placed that pre-order on-line.  Now I can be done with collecting for a while and not have to worry about braving the stores during the evil shopping days ahead...
