Good Luck to all of you in the playoffs...looks like HE would have been close were it not for "the reversal" even with the W he wouldn't have been in though

Whew!  Talk about slinking in.

Leave it to Vick to cough-up a big ZERO the week I needed him most.  Stupid Falcons... >:(


PLAYOFFS!

I'm actually quite concerned that I won't make it out of the first round...

The Zods
vs.
Nataku Dragons

You're mocking me, aren't you?  :P

Ah, well, at least I made the playoffs...

Got my shipping confirmation Friday on the cantina wave. 

Sweet!  Me too!   ;D

According to EE, they went out on Friday, so they should be here next week!  Very nice...

Very nice...

I like this ship, and I like that you don't get stuck with a crappy pack-in figure.

Looks like TRU Japan's Website is expecting the FIVE-pack on the 11th of December!

TRU Japan 5-pack listing

The one we went to was in West Saint Paul.  It was like a Supermarket AND A department store mixed into one...  In fact, there is a Cub Foods on Robert Street in the spot where Zayre used to be.

I think they were bought out by another grocer chain (Ames?) and either closed up or changed over.

It didn't last too long into the 80s though.  The only reason I remember it was because the restrooms were located on sort of an upper lever/catwalk thing along the front wall.  You went up a set of stairs, past the employee break room.  There was a railing and from up there you could overlook the whole store. 

Well, one time as my mom was using the facilities, I was left waiting outside with Grandma.  I stuck my head out to get a closer view and... yep.  Head stuck between the bars of the railing.  The whole store got a great view of this kid with his head stuck in the railing from down below on the store floor... :-[

I definately want The Joker, The Penguin, Catwoman, but I can pass on the actual penguin, Selina, and maybe movie Bats...

Unless of course it's cheaper to buy the whole set of 6.   :-X

I think they will go great with my other Bat Kubricks!

I picked up this book at B-&-N last night.  I was preusing the Sci-Fi/Fantasy section when I came across it.  I remembered Scott's , so I decided to give it a whirl.

Should have some good hours this weekend to dig into it... if it sucks, you owe me $7.99 plus tax.

I think you're off the hook...

250+ pages into it and it's a great read.  Absolutely fantastic so far, I couldn't believe how quickly was I was sucked into the Seven Kingdoms.  :o  Scandal, Betrayal, Murder, Wolves, woo-hoo!

D'oh, I forgot Ben Franklin...the only store in my home town that carried toys.  Otherwise it was a 30 minute trip to the Target in Coon Rapids.  This was after we moved to the sticks from Robbinsdale and the nice proximity of Crystal Target and Brookdale

A trip to Children's Palace in Rosedale was a once every other month affair.  A trip to Target happened every other week as my Mom and Grandma needed to resupply their households, but BNen Franklin was just a bike ride away to the local"mall" if you can call a Grocery Store, Snyders, Ben Franklin, Hair Salon, and Pet Store a "mall".

There were many times I sat in the aisle at Ben Franklin wondering if I should buy a particular figure or not.  Buying it now meant that I had the figure I wanted immediately, but waiting until a trip to Target might save me a $0.50-$1.00 BUT they might not have the figure I wanted.  Decisions, decisions.   :-\

I know I grabbed Storm Shadow (v1) at Ben Franklin, I didn't care that he was almost $1 more there than Target, because I had to have that Ninja something fierce!  Same went for RotJ Jedi Luke and Endor Han, both picked up at Ben because I couldn't wait!

Sheesh... maybe we should start a "Question for those that grew up in the stone age" thread for you two Canadians.   :P

I did most of my figure/toy buying at 3 locations.

1 - Target
2 - Children's Palace
3 - Ben Franklin

A few things came from Sear's Catalog Outlet store, as well as the occasionaly Woolworths, K-Mart, or Zayre Shoppers City.

Strange to think that they are almost all gone the way of the DoDo now...  :'(
