For some reason I thought we saw a glimpse of him in GH's Comic-Con coverage, just during Hasbro's presentation (on the screen), not the actual figure.

Good Memory, Brian!

SDCC brings us news of MORE GH figures...

Luke (Jedi) & Gamorrean Guard 2-pack
Lando (Skiff) and Nikto (Skiff) 2-pack
Stormtroopers 2-pack
Jawa and Tusken Raider 2-pack. a mock-up photo up...

GH had the mock-ups of the Tatooine wave Gamorrean/Luke and Skiff Guards 2-packs, then Jawa and Tusken made their first appearance in the Insider last month...

Me too...  I've got 2x everyone except poor 3PO  :(

I mentioned it in the ESB thread , but let's take another look...

ANH Wave 1 - 3x Han, 3x Ben, 2x Leia
ANH Wave 1.5 - 3x Luke, 2x Han, 2x Ben, 1x Leia
ESB Wave 2 - 2x Han, 2x Luke, 2x Vader, 2x Yoda
ESB Wave 2.5 - 1x Han, Ben, Leia, Luke, Vader, Yoda, Lando, 3PO
RotJ Wave 3.0 - 2x Fett, 2x Stormie, 1x R2, Chewie, Vader, Lando
RotJ Wave 3.1 - 2x Fett, 1x R2, Chewie, Stormie, Yoda, Ben 3PO - CANCELLED BY HASBRO
RotJ Wave 3.2 - 2x Stormie, Yoda, Vader, 1x Lando, Fett

That's 6 different cases that actually shipped to retail.  Assuming they were all shipped evenly (which we know isn't the case because ANH was overshipped first), you'd end up with 48 figures:

8x Han
6x Ben
6x Luke
6x Vader
5x Yoda
4x Leia
4x Stormie
3x Lando
3x Fett
1x C-3PO
1x R2
1x Chewie

So, best case scenario, 3PO ends up being about 1 per 48 figures, so do R2-D2 and Chewie.   :o 

I'd wager that C-3PO will be even harder to find than R2 and Chewie because most stores glutted on ANH waves.  As a result, they skipped the ESB wave, OR only got in the wave 2 case, NOT the wave 2.5 case that features 3PO.  These stores that are restocking now are probably getting the RotJ wave cases.

Since the RotJ wave is currently shipping, you still have a chance at R2 and Chewie. 

It's rough because not many stores are getting the ESB wave 2.5 case having all moved on to the RotJ cases, so 3PO may start to get very hard to find with the Holidays coming up at retail...

How long are we going to make this draft?

10 rounds with 2 FA pick-ups?

11 rounds with 1 open slot on our bench for a FA?

or a full 12 rounds?

Getting a bit slow with my posts...

Jared hooked me up with the Holo-Emperor from!  Very quick to help out!

Thanks again for the assist!

Just looking around, KBZ hasn't been anywhere (Scum, GH, JD) since 3:30pm...

AND, now that I look, I haven't seen him poke in here yet?  Has anyone PMed him to let him know it's his pick... at least that way he'll pick tomorrow.

I'm getting sleepy and think I'm headed out for the night.... I'll check back in tomorrow AM.


Boy, how about that Mussina-Schilling Showdown?

Great pitching by both bullpens though...  ::)

What a crazy game!

So, Hasbro holds a pseudo "Fan-Choice" poll, where the fans ended up picking the Scan Trooper for release. 

Then, Hasbro cancelled the main case he's shipping in?


For crying out loud!  How hard is it to make and ship these things???   >:(

Sorry, I was having dinner with my lady...  ;)

So, um, With the #5 pick, I choose...

Tracy McGrady, Houston Rockets

Got my rotj vOTC today!   ;D

I am SOOOOO impressed with these 4 figures.  Even R2 is much better than I was expecting.  Granted, maybe he isn't worth $10, but he is a great multifaceted R2 nonetheless.

And Chewie.  Dang.  He is sooooo cool.  Mine isn't too yellow-furred, so he look fantastic.  If I were a kid, I don't think I'd go anywhere without my vOTC Han and Chewie... ah, heck who am I kidding.  I am seriously thinking about grabbing another Han and Chewie just so I can have a set to keep at my desk at work.

vOTC Han and Chewie are my new favorite SW figure, hands down, no contest.

Fett is so articulated, and I seem to like him a bit more than the pre-posed 300th Fett.

Stormtroopers...  :)  It is taking all of my will power to trade off my 3 extras.  I want to army build this guy SOOOO badly, but I am trying my hardest to wait it out to see if/when they are re-released or clearanced.  THEN, if they get cheaper, I'd army build this guy til the cows come home...

Overall - A+

Maybe I'm not critical enough, but I LOVE this wave.

Last year in my Basketball draft at work, I named my team "Washington Generals" and filled the roster with goodie two-shoes and white guys like Mark Madsen and such.

Needless to say, I did very poorly  :(

Yes, the mighty

5. Thug Squad Ballers

is indeed my team. 

My squad is named after my intentions for the draft...

Every guy I pick will have "street cred" as well as maybe a stirke or two against him as far as substance abuse goes.  Nothing but the crazies and thugzz on my squad and that shouldn't be too hard in the NBA  ;)

Why?  Too cold in Minnesota?

No, it's indoors so we can swim around naked without scaring the neighbors people oogling us...  :P
