Yeah, Amazon still has a Nov 20th date for these, so I'm expecting to see them just in time for the Holiday crunch...

I think I'll just end up ordering them from Amazon and thusly avoiding the holiday-packed TRU crowds full of Grandmas/Moms fighting over the last "hot" toy for their bratty kids  ::)


It's Official...  8)

Santana captures AL Cy Young

28 First Place votes!   ;D

Even Joe Nathan got a vote!


Here's my list of top ten, in no particular order...

1.  Slim Aloo - Imperial Dignitary
2.  Moff Jerjerrod - Death Star 2
3.  Kithaba - Skiff Guard (aka Vintage Barada)
4.  Klaatu - Jabba's Palace (w/ fuzzy skirt)
5.  Ak-Rev (Weequay Drumer) - Jaba's Band
6.  Hermi Odle - Jabba's Palace
7.  Yarna D'al Gargan - Jabba's Palace
8.  C-3PO - Ewok Village (w/ bendy knees and chair)
9.  Chief Chirpa - Ewok Village (w/ woklings)

and finally..
10.  "Ewok Warrior" - Ewok Village

Take that last one and repaint/re-hash him 4 times as follows:
A) brown/tan with short spear
B) gray/black with 'rock-on-a-stick' club
C) reddish-brown with bow/quiver
D) dark brown with long spear

Just like this:

Call them Lumat, Romba, Warok, Wompus, or whatever the heck you want just give me some more Ewoks!

A friend and I were talking, and this line reminds me soooo much of those one-off Independent Comic Action Figure lines of the late 90s.

You'd see a regular version of the character, then maybe a chase version...
then a glow-in-the-dark version...
then a fire version (red see through)
then a Gold edition...
then an ice version (clear blue)
then a ghost version (cloudy white)
then a radioactive version...


Lame.  GG sure is trying to get the milage out of their molds...  :-\

Once again, I got some moolah from Dave!  (hope you enjoy your vOTC 3PO, most people don't  :P)

Like I said last time, everytime I've dealt with Dave, payment arrives quickly!  Smooth as always indeed...

Thanks again, Dave!

Obviously Kubricks are grabbing a lot of people's attention today!  I've played with the idea of getting into these, I've never even seen one with my own eyes.   Hmmm...


I can get you started on that path too, just like I did with the Bust-Ups!  Just send a PM if you are interested... ;)

Oh yeah, and welcome to too! 


Jeff, are these just re-releases of Galoob's prior diecast line, from the mid/late 90's? Or are these all new ships? Looks like the former.

Good eye!

They seem to be made from the same molds, so they will be very similar to the later 90s Die Cast Galoob versions, with the minor paint app variation you'd expect from a re-hash.

So, they will be very similar to that old galoob line, but different enough that most will pick them up for the packaging at least!



Seller miyatoys has the first wave of the upcoming Star Wars Titanium Series up for bid on eBay!  This first wave includes the Falcon, a TIE Fighter, Slave 1, and an X-Wing. 

This planned exclusive line of die-cast classic Star Wars vehicles is set to debut next spring along side the Episode 3 preview figures and should retail for around $4.99 each. 

Details are still sketchy about wave 2, but look for future waves to branch out into Prequel vehicles as well!

Yeah, each time I've seen them they have been right next to the GH figure 2-packs.

AND, I broke down and purchased my first Jedi Force figure (Luke) last night.  One of the nephew's birthday is coming up at the end of the month (11-24) and it seemed like it'd make a good gift as he's got a BUNCH of Rescue Heroes stuff. 

I guess we'll see if kids actually like them or not at Thanksgiving when he gets his gift!

Yes, that is my new sandcrawler, and yes, it does look better with the Kubricks (still not to scale though).  I think I will leave it near the Kubricks though for the time being...

And, if anyone decides that they don't want their Logray, I'm still looking for one!  :)

Here's to hoping that Bennett runs in 2 TDs and Harrison hauls in 2 more...   :-\



I need 16.45 to tie.

So Far,
Pollard - 2 TD, 29yrd (12.58)
Harrison - 81 yrd (1.62)
Bennett - 33 yrd (.66)

14.86 points  :(

If only I would have remembered to check my team and switch my defenses... then I'd have 16.86 and a victory.

Dumbass.   :-[

Well, game's not over yet... 1.59 points to go.

Got my Sandcrawler from FedEx today!

It seems as beauty is once again in the eye of the beholder... and as one who was lucky enough to be-holding a $50 GC from, I like my Sandcrawler.  If this thing was $60, I'd be mad, but for my price of $18 I'm very happy with what I got.

The moral of the story?  If you're on the fence about this one, I'd say hold on until they hit clearance.  You'll like this vehicle a heck of a lot more for $40 or $30 than the $60 price tag.

I decided to open up the little Vinyl Cape Jawa w/Ion Rifle.

DANG!  He packs quite the smell with that vinyl cape sealed up in that little bag... you toy sniffers will get quite a high if you open one of these!   ;)

Me too.  Hopefully a few Manning to Harrison TDs to boost my stats and give the Dragons the win.

Well, this is why we play out the games...Interestingly enough, Matt Stover has already kicked 4 field goals tonight to add another 12 points to Nataku's deficit, putting Tatooine Express up over Nataku 39-23.

Gotta love it.

Here's to hoping that Bennett runs in 2 TDs and Harrison hauls in 2 more...   :-\
