X-Wing Pilot Luke would be a good one.

If you want an X-Wing Luke head, let me know and I'll mail ya one... I've got a 5 or 6 left over from Rogue Squadron Pilot Customs I've done.  All you have to to is use an exacto knife to get rid of the teeth paint.



If I see it and I like it, I'll buy it!

If I see it and it sucks, I'll pass.

Sounds neat though...

Since he's from Bespin, and a pseudo-new figure, I'm adding this here instead of the re-hash thread... has a nifty feature up on the OTC Bespin Luke.

Check out this picture:
Bespin Luke Comparison Photo

It's a GREAT comparison of the Saga (Beat-Down) version and the newer one from OTC.  The coloration on his outfit is more vintage-brown than the Saga yellowy color.  VERY nice.  I waffled on this one earlier, but I really like the changes now that I've seen better pictures of Luke.  

Now, I'm definately gonna pick up one of these bad boys.  That way, I can have a Bespin Luke ready to take on Vader near the Freeze Chamber, while my Saga version cowers on the weather vane after Darth kicked his butt.  

If only there were more of these cool re-hashes mixed into the OTC...

Today's selection to pass the time in my little office cubicle:

Easily the greatest CD of all time.  I am currently on my 4th copy of this CD, after wearing out 6 cassette tapes back in the day.  

I could listen to this CD for the rest of my life and be happy.

All that you feel
Is tranquility"

I got a chance to see HP3 last night.

Good Stuff  :)

My wife and I both gave it thumbs up!

I liked the "Buckbeak" CGI.  Pretty cool.

I also liked Black... too bad about him in the next book/movie though.   :-X

Come on guys. Greg only does it to help the collectors. It's got nothing to do with him wanting to see his name at the top of every page.

Thirty days? That's steep. Must've really pissed someone off. Well done.  :)

Are you saying "Well done" in a positive way or a sarcastic way?

Angry Ewok, you should ask GNT to make a list. He's good at making lists. ::)
Just don't dare to make your own list

This post is nolonger needed, the forum has a GNT post which contains all the crap released in the line, it can be found here

Remember, please post ONLY in the ONE AND ONLY ONE "approved" thread, started by me in the middle of the night.


From what I've seen:

The OTC Role-Play lightsabers have turned up at RETAIL (Target/TRU).

The OTC Vehicles (X-Wing & TIE Fighter) have turned up at a few retail locations and most on-line shops (EE, Kebco, etc), all little guys who got stuff from Hasbro.  No signs at the big three yet...

The OTC figures have NOT been "confirmed" at retail yet, as far as I know.  None of the big sites is reporting it, and if they were out, someone would have a figure w/receipt pic.  

The order on figure timing usually goes like this:

1 - EBay Auctions from Asia

*2 weeks pass*

2 - Asia Based On-Line shops start selling the figures

*2 weeks pass*

3 - On-Line scalpers er... Price Gouger er... "High Demand Product" On-Line stores get them (Action-HQ, Brian's Toys, Cloud City).  These are the stores who pay a crapload to have the items air-shipped from Asia.

*2 weeks pass*

4 - "Regular" On-Line stores (EE, New Force, Kebco, etc) start to get ship notification and/or the figures start turning up at the Big Retail 3 (Target TRU Wal-Mart).

This pattern has held pretty true for some time, with minor variations for shipping problems, etc.  From the first auctions we see from Asia to Retail stores is usually 4-8 weeks.

Given that we are just hitting about 4 weeks since they turned up on eBay, I'd say that they realistically could start hitting Target/TRU/Wal-Mart any day now really...

The interview I heard wasn't a pre-game interview by ABC, but did take place the day of the game in the afternoon on ESPN or Fox sports radio (not sure which).

Granted, the radio guy (Rome?) made it seem much worse than what it was, but he did specifically mention Steph and the Knicks...  this was after he tried to tone down the uproar from a day or two earlier.

« on: June 11, 2004, 12:13 PM »
I'm hearing now that will put the Sandcrawler up for pre-order soon... only $49.99 plus shipping.

Not too shabby for those that still need one and are willing to check it out.

Too strange.

Just like every other toy line, the Happy Days line starts out good, but ends up with an assortment of all Fonzies!

Series 1:
Fonzie (classic)

Series 2:
Mr. C
Mrs. C

Series 3:
Mechanic Fonzie
Bike Gang Fonzie
"Evel Kenevil" "Fearless" Fonzie
and, appropriately the last one
"Jumping the Shark" Fonzie

Who'd they take their marketing strategy from?  Mattel?  Hasbro?  They crank out a few villians in wave 2, then it's all Fonzie!   >:(

Well, last night's game deserves a big "Randy Award":

This one goes to "Mr. At-Best Adulterer":

Hero of Game 2, Goat of Game 3.  ONE point in the first half?!?  My favorite part of the whole thing though was the pre-game interview in which this dorkwad was talking about how he'd like to leave the Lakers for the Knicks next year to play with Stephon saying that his heart isn't in it anymore with the LAkers.  

HUH?  Complaining about your current team just hours before a pivotal Game 3 in the Finals?  Way to have your head in the game jackass!

I figured he'd be seated in the Meditation Chamber, so no need for a stand.
