Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Animated Wave 3 (and beyond)?

Why does Wal*Mart have these?


These are not Target exclusive anymore, so they should turn up everywhere.  It seems that Wal-Mart has them first from what I have read, but they should show up at Target and TRU as well...

Christmas money from Grandma

And that is it...  :-\

I hereby declare that the Vikings were the luckiest team ever on Sunday.

The Viking defense whiffs big-time on a last-minute drive by the Lions and gives up a fat touchdown thanks to a bone-headed pass interference call, only to have Detroit WHIFF the extra point and give the Vikes the game?   :o 

How the hell do they get that lucky?   :-\


Original Trilogy Collection / Re: 2005 Cantina Wave
« on: December 20, 2004, 10:08 AM »
Got my 2005 Cantina wave back on the 10th of Dec, but only got around to opening them last night thanks to a busy week last week.

I really like the way this wave was done.  I agree with Jesse in that better elbows/shoulders and these guys would be perfect.  The only real gripe I have is the EU nose bugger debate, which has been well-hashed already.  For now, I've take off the Nose-buggers and have Dannik posed in my cantina with his face turned profile so that the holes are a bit trickier to see what with him not being face-out.


I think it was this guy:

He seems to get around the SW compaines these days, from to Hasbro and back again...

Hope you enjoy your stay...


...and Mike Matheny signed a 3-year deal w/ the Giants.

Which means A.J. Pierzynski is probably going to be traded since you don't need two AS caliber Catchers.  I don't think they would have signed Matheny unless they already had a deal in the works for AJ.

I wonder where he'll end up?   :-\


I was reading that this series will be seven volumes long.

The story I read was that at first, it was to be 6 books, with the first 3 books making up one trilogy, then the next 3 finishing off the story with a second trilogy.  However, while writing book 4, it was leaked that about 5-10 years take place between the two trilogies.

There was such an outcry from fans, that George RR Martin decided to stop where he was in book 4 in order to go back and write book 3.5 (A Feast for Crows) to fill in the time gap between the two, thus adding a seventh book.  Apparently, this is why it has taken so long to get the fourth book (part 3.5) done.

Does that match up to what you've read/heard?  That's the problem with the internet, you can never be sure what you read at a fan-site is true or not...  :-\


Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS Pegwarmers?

I'll say:

Anakin Skywalker
Darth Vader

Trust me, you will be so sick of Vader action figures when this is all over.

We are already getting Anakin and Vader both in Collection 1, then versions in Collection 2, then Deluxe versions, the Vader w/Meditation Chamber, then 12" Figures, then Jedi Battle figures, the Attacktix, then, etc, etc, etc.

He'll be on the packaging, on the in-store signage, on the boxes, EVERYwhere.  I won't be surprised when cases start shipping with 3x Anakin, 3x Vader, and 6 other figures.

When June 2005 rolls around, there will be Vader in amounts the likes of which God himself has never seen.  :-\

Congrats, Rob.

It was a well-battled season, but at least I made the playoffs and lost to the guy who's going to win it all...  ;)

As for Kobe's tiff with the Mailman, eh, I think it's been blown out of proportion.  I thought his comments weren't that outta line.  He was just sticking up for his teammates, especially the couple guys who would be in danger of losing their roster spot if Malone came back.  He didn't rip Malone or anything dumb like that.  Karl's just being a baby right now.

Kobe 'upset' about Malone's comments to wife


Good Grief, can things get any stupider in the NBA right now? 

It's only December but I'm already sick of the NBA - the fighting, the petty bickering amongst "teammates" (Wolves or LAkers or anyone).

I wish the NHL were back... at least they take their fights out into the open instead of using the newspapers or the fans to abuse.  :-\


OK, so this weekend I finished the first book.

Let's just say that after 800 pages there were still a few surprises left in the book at the end.  Didn't quite turn out like I was expecting, and that was a good thing.

I'm now about 3 chapters into the 2nd book, A Clash of Kings and desperately cheering against the Lannisters.
