Nice score on the Uzay TIE Pilot.  Is the figure different than the US or just the packaging?

It's an ATAT Driver painted black with some red. Same as Uzay did back in the day from what I gathered on uzaystarwars website. Certainly different than the regular vintage version. They even made his weapon look like the Uzay one.

Nice Justin! I love those three. They were some of the first I splurged on back in the day when I could throw my money at whatever.

Just bought a custom made carded Uzay Tie Pilot (Savas Piloto) for about $20 on ebay. Fig and cardback look just like the real thing and I couldn't pass up the chance to pretend I had a carded Uzay fig.

Just wanted to say I thought Samuel Jackson did a great job playing Rob Gronkowski is "Unbreakable".

I don't look at it as coddling. I look at it as playing the game in conditions that make it still the sport it is. That being said, I don't think the NFL has a choice so it is what it is. Obviously they can't play the game later in the week.

How horrible is it going to be if the Super Bowl is played in these conditions this year? I think it would be an embarrassment.

Watching the snow fall at the Lions - Eagles and Vikings - Ravens games right now.  Damn, I love watching football in the snow!!!!!!!!!

I think it's a farce. This is not professional football (yes I know you could say the Vikings haven't played professional football all year).

Yep, can't help myself. Just got Mr. Plagueis and I love it.

Nick (or anyone else who's read the Plagueis book), remind me how the book ends, primarily how Plagueis dies.  Isn't it different than the way Palps describes it to Anakin in the opera? 

But, yeah, a poor choice of alien for a Sith lord.

It's been awhile since I read it, but it was pretty much what he tells Anakin. In his sleep right before Palpatine becomes Chancellor.

I haven't seen the Plagueis in person yet so I guess I should wait for judgment, but I'm super excited for this. I will admit my bias towards liking most anything they make that's EU (of course he's mentioned in ROTS, but I'm talking from the "Darth Plagueis" book).

Maybe I'm misunderstanding you Jesse, but if you don't like Palpatine's master being an alien with his hate for non humans then I'm guessing you didn't read the book. Palpatine doesn't kill him just because he wants to become the master.

Just wanted to throw my opposite two cents in.

this is going to be on a Amazon lightning sale today at 1 pm eastern time

What is a Lightning Sale? Or the real question I have is how cheap are we talking?

Yeah this worked out nice. Paid full price and shipping on Plagueis, then got Merumeru and Vizam for less than store cost and didn't have to get off my butt. If I ever see Neyo or Mace in person I will buy them, but if not then I don't need them really so I left them out of my order.

Just received my "shipped" notice for Plagueis.

Pretty sure that was just a Pre-Order for Plagueis, God knows when they would actually end up shipping him to you, you may find him in stores first.

Mine said 12/13. I can deal with that if true.

All black series figures in stock at HTS now - even Mara and Plagueis. Go.

Thanks for the heads up!!!!

Have enjoyed the Governor's fake "rehabilitation" and then quick return to insanity. But seriously, he is going to lead another attack just with a new group on the prison. He should have died at the last one. Rick, Michone, Maggie, whoever better kill him next Sunday.

it's a nice way of collecting carded without doing it.

So glad someone else out there thinks like me!
