I read that they aer testing Giambi for all sorts of stuff to figure out why he's sick:
HIV, Cancer, weird parasites, etc.

I don't think they have ANY idea why he's sick... unless they are just coving up his BALCO crash?  Strange...


My Boy Milty had a no-no going into the 8th this weekend and the Phillies almost blew it for him  >:(

Eh, I'm growing tired of being "not Virex" already.

Maybe I'll have to be someone else for the rest of the day...

It'd be like if someone started using my avatar.  

I'd freak.

That would suck.


not Virex

What the?!?   >:(

You have got to be kidding me on that Y-Wing figure pack-in!

That's the same stupid pilot that came with the TRU X-Wing, with a different helmet color!

This has been confirmed by the Official Site as a TRU exclusive...

"Another "Silver Saga 2004" figure -- Darth Vader -- will be available later this year through Toys R Us. "

I would image it will be the same deal as all the rest of the TRU Silver Figures...


So these cards aren't even original cards scanned and manipulated, the entire card has most likely been scratch built using pieces from the vintage cards. Most interesting....

Yep.  Hasbro admitted this during the preview of vOTC Ben:

"Without access to the original package artwork, Hasbro’s package designers had to recreate it from scratch. To help Hasbro achieve a near-exact replica, Lucasfilm dug deep into their archives to find the original, Kenner-exclusive character photographs as well as the original Luke & Leia logo.

Using these images and an actual original package, Hasbro’s designers went to work to match the package details stroke-for-stroke:"

This is why we are seeing minor variations in the pictures and the type-set used in the RotJ logo.  These are NOT exactly the same, just really, really good dupes :)

I think we'll see VOTC Han for cheaper someday, somehow.  I think we'll see most, if not all the VOTC released again someday, but again this all boils down to Hasbro...  Some of their decisions are so clearly perplexing to us, and cannot really be explained ANY which way, that it's just so hard to predict anymore.

I like to THINK the Stormtrooper will see a wide release...  I hope it does, really.  Like Jeff said above though...  It could just be too logical a choice for it to ACTUALLY happen, haha.  :)


They may eventually get re-released, but not anytime soon...

From JediMAC's Q&A with Hasbro

What else...  They said NO WAY IN HELL will any of the 4" VOTC figures get re-released later on in the standard ($5) carded line.  I expected a negative answer to that, but not such an adamant one.  I told them that was totally unfair to deny collectors the greatest army-building figure of all-time, in the new Stormtrooper (looks GREAT).  They replied "We're not denying anyone.  The collectors can army-build all they want with that one."  Yeah.  Ok.   ::)  I reminded them that it was a $10 figure that was being placed in a line that's supposedly going to see a much more limited release than the standard OTC line.  Their reply:  Shrug.  Hmmm....  Oh well...   >:(

The wookie looks like he (she?) shares some parts with...

From the Official Site:

"Wookiee Senator Yarua used his position to blockade trade to Trandosha until the bodies of the 215 Wookiee passengers could be returned to Kashyyyk for proper burial."

Huh. has a picture (slide) from the Hasbro Show.

I like them!  Of course, I can't tell if I like them because they are good figures or I like them because they are the first new basic figures in a while!
