Hi Guys,

I just got an e-mail from New Force that said they are expecting both the Jabba's Palace wave AND the Yavin 4 wave cases in this week.

If you've got a pre-order in for these cases keep an eye out for your ship notice later this week...

Yeah we got a report in from a guy in WI (didn't say where though) I also read at GH that someone in the Twin Cities found them too...Happy Hunting...er :-X

Uh... so are they in the Toy Aisle then?

I hit the Suburban St. Paul Target at lunch and didn't find anything, nor any luck when I asked about the DPCI number (087-06-0937).

I checked the kiddie dinnerware aisle just to be sure that I didn't miss them though...

Letís have the speculation end. ;) Thanks to you know who for pointing this thread out.

Thanks for clearing that up.  I guess I was just mis-understood on the whole thing (after hearing so many net-rumors I didn't really know what to believe).  I feel a little better hearing the truth of the matter for once and for all.

CSW.com was a lot of fun and I was a bit saddened when it merged with scum.  The forums have never seemed quite the same after that...  gh.com is great though.  You have a crack team over there and gh.com and jd.com are my two preferred sites for "getting it on" in the world of SW toys!

I really don't know either besides what was said at the time of the merger...and its not really right to speculate on said matter of what might have happened behind the scenes because we don't know ??? :-\  

Agreed.  Only Mike and Phillip will ever really know the facts, the rest of us are just left to speculate, and you know what happens then, you just make a "spec" out of u and late... wait?  Is that right?

Inver Grove Heights, MN

Mostly we were a wrestling power-house while I was in High School, but lately we've improved in boys baseball, hockey, and girls hockey.

My little bro plays for the IGH travel team/JV right now.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: New Vintage Assortment of 12

Stormtrooper is replacing Han Solo in the ROTJ assortment.

Ugh.

At first I was disappointed that the Stormtrooper wasn't included, but then I was relieved that Stormtrooper wasn't in there because if he were I'd want to Army Build him.

Now, he's in.  It's probably the world's greatest Stormie and he'll be limited to find and $10 a pop.

I'll still want as many as I can find though...

Wow.  I really thought they'd be two figures.

Kudos, Hasbro!  Of course, I still think it's weird to get a free head and arms as "accessories...

I'll probably still buy two so I can have one of each pose set up on the shelves.  I'm such a dork.

Do note this all comes with a major heaping of sour grapes.  Being from Winnipeg where we averaged a meagre 12,500 fans per game (by the way that's butts in the seats, not tickets given away :-*) it's really annoying to tune into what should be a really good game in Carolina or LA and see 60%+ of the seats sitting empty on a Saturday night.   >:(

It is kinda sad to think that 12,500 fans in Winnipeg wasn't enough to make money, but 6400 in Tampa is?  Huh?  The dollar isn't THAT strong.

Unless some serious negotiations start in June the only Hockey I'll have next fall will be the World Cup of Hockey matches... and College Hockey... and High School Hockey... hmmm.  Maybe it won't be so bad after all.

ps
Better luck next year boys.

Other than that, I'd rather not have another rehashed Jedi Duel against Maul collaboration.

I feel pretty confident that this 4-pack will at the very least contain a Maul figure...  After all, the only Maul scheduled for 2004 so far has been in the Hall of Fame assortment version.  

Considering the fact that without a MAJOR re-write of the OT, there's no way they can re-pack Mauly for OTC; nor can they stick him in the TRU Jedi Council scenes.

Ergo, they're gonna stick a Maul in the 4-pack.  After all, you can't expect us to go a whole year with only ONE Darth Maul, right?   :P

Mikey, ya gotta know that Naboo four pack will be JarJar, Boss Nass, Captain Tarpals and a battle droid :-*

Hmmm...

There are so many ways it could go:
JarJar, Nass, Tarpals, Droid
Padme, Typho, Nute, Rune
Ani, R2, Droideka, Battle Droid
Padme, Obi-Wan, Ani, Qui-Gon

but it's probably:
Darth Maul (chopped in half)
Qui-Gon Jinn (1st version)
Obi-Wan Kenobi (1st version)
and either Pilot Anakin OR Padawan Anakin
with some cheezy accessory from the Episode 1 accessory packs.

Again, just my $0.02 cents worth of speculation.

Figures I don't mind seeing re-carded and shipped again on new card style:

PotJ Sandtrooper
PotJ Scout Trooper
Clone Wars Clone Trooper (Super Articulated)
Saga Snowtrooper
CommTech Stormtrooper

In my opinion, these guys should be released every so often.  They are the true army builders and I wouldn't mind having more opportunity to buy them over and over.

That's just me though.

Who are Ickath, Chema and Sta Sta?  Poor spelling aside, I could figure out the rest (Sae Sae = Saesee Tinn and Adegalia = Adi Gallia)  Those I don't know.

Well, my leading theory is that :

Ickath = Eeth Koth (say it fast and smuch it together)
Chema = Coleman Trebor (combine the ol into an h to get Cheman)
Sta Sta = Stass Allie (2 Stas = STAss)

That way Eeth would be in an Ep 1 scene with Plo and Obi-Wan, while Scene Number could be an Episode TWO Council Scene with Stass Allie, Shaak Ti, and Coleman Trebor.

Of course, this is all based on my ability to decipher overseas butchered spelling, so I could just be full of it and those are some little known Bear Clan kids.  What the hell do I know?

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: KBZ jokes on GNT at scum
« on: February 24, 2004, 05:31 PM »
Wow.

What a thread!

I, too, dislike GNT.  

His style, his attitude, his "stay on topic every 5 posts" posts, his blatant re-posting news from other sites where he basically starts a thread on every news item then locks all other threads on the subject.

The thing that bugs me most though is when he pulls something out of his @$$ (Ewok Mom w/Woklings, etc), passes it off as fact/truth (usually going so far as to claim another non-scum site said it first when usually site B never said it) then ignores any critisism when he is wrong.

There are countless examples of times he states something as true when he has NO factual basis for it.  Then, when he is proven wrong (OTC) or told he has things backwards, often his tactic is to delete the post that proved him wrong and edit his original post so it looks like he was right all along, thus ignoring the whole thing as JesseJames stated earlier.

ADMIT IT WHEN YOU ARE WRONG, MAN!

If you pull things out of your @$$, you are gonna get it wrong.  At least be a man and say "Geez, I guess I was wrong: OTC and vOTC are different lines".  Unfortunately, all we ever get are "Whatever, it's all still Saga anyway" answers at best.

Between him and Curto's "Look at this new Figure!  Oops!  It's a custom. Gotcha!" crap, I barely look at 'scum anymore, only to compare big things like ToyFair or the Convention coverages, then I check out all the big sites.

Holy crap, that setup is amazing!   :o  But where the hell's the opposing army...?   :P

Uh... I think they all ran away after being severly out-numbered.

Or maybe they are all dead?

I've got 50+ clones now, and they are only a faction of that picture.
