I was wondering if Jesse James or JediJman have an opinion on the Super Bowl? Please post if you do. ;)

This would be a pass for me except I passed on the Yoda version so I probably will grab this version since I had more self control back then.

Don't agree.

Just because it's in the record books doesn't mean it was right.  There's a lot of chatter online that Harrison's cheap shot happened before any Cardinals touched the punt, which means that penalty should have given the Cardinals a first down.  Should this call and the interception return and the incomplete pass all have gone against the Cardinals if they were "too close to say they were wrong either way?"  If that's really what you think, then the refs did blow it for the Cardinals because they could have just as easily called any one of these in Arizona's favor and we'd likely have a different SB champ right now.

There is a HUGE difference between the refs blowing it for the team and the calls not going their way. I'm done with this arguement. I don't really care who won and the Steelers did. I get so sick of there never being a sporting event where someone who wanted one team to win blaming it on the refs that they didn't. There is a difference between totally blowing a call and maybe missing it and if you go back and look at that in every game you can maybe change the outcome in a lot of them.

First I want to say I didn't care who won the Super Bowl. I was glad it was a good game.


The refs didn't blow it for the Cardinals. The Cardinals didn't get a raw deal. All the touchdowns were touchdowns. People's feet were down, Harrison was in, whether Harrison is cheap or not didn't affect the game, the Warnere fumbles/incomplete passes were too close to say they were wrong either way.

The Steelers have 6 championships and the Cardinals have none and that isn't going to change nor should it.

Was that penalty before or after the change of possession?  I don't remember Madden and Michaels mentioning that.

It was after the change. On "Mike and Mike In the Morning" on ESPN they had someone from the Refs office officially state that.

Figs are $8.79 at my nearest Target now. I don't evern want to think about it if I find Legacy wave 5 there.

The whole game was decided on the Harrison TD at the end of the first half...  If the Cardinals just manage a FG there, they win. Hell, if Fitzgerald just makes the tackle at the half inch line they'd have won.

Actually because of the 15 yard personal foul on Arizona on the play, the Steelers would have got half the distance to the goal and the half can't end on a defensive penalty so they Steelers would have had one play to score from the foot line. So it wasn't quite as simple as "if Fitzgerald just makes the tackle".

Oh, and the price is up to $7.99 here as well, which really does stink.

Ya and the figures are very scrawny.  I'm just not seeing $8 in any of these figures.

Be glad they aren't $8.79 like they are at my nearest Target.

If this thing turns out to be a "Previews" exclusive then the price seems about right. I agree I won't buy it, but all that stuff is a rip off so I wouldn't be surprised. If it's on the shelf at Target its one thing, but a comic store item could go for that much.

I picked up this wave yesterday and I think the Padme and the MagnaGuard are great figs. The CW MagnaGuard is better than the regular ROTS version I think.

I see this is up for preorder at BBTS, but the price is $74.99.  I wonder if this is exclusive (which I guess is likely since it doesn't fit into the $20 pricepoint assortment).  Otherwise, that's pretty pricey for a regular release.

$75??? What the heck kinda price is that? I hope that's right though because then I WON'T be tempted to buy it any more.

I don't know if they just went down to this price or if I just happened across one that was found later in the pricing process, but I picked up the CW LEGO Republic Fighter Tank for 75% off clearance, $12.48 at Target yesterday. So keep your eyes open and don't ignore stuff in the clearance section just because its CW and you don't think it should be on clearance already like I almost did.

Exact opposite for me. The box with the Death Star skeleton and the fact that it is a Clone ship when they are helping hunt the Jedi instead of when they are with the Jedi makes me want it. I need someone to talk me out of it because I can't afford it.

I didn't need to see that. I have enough ARC 170s, but I am a huge sucker for Republic vehicles turned sterile matte colors by the Empire. I don't know how I'm not going to need one of these.

General theory about modern toys:  nothing is rare. 

Waiting will benefit you 99 times out of 100.  You'll still spend less when that one item goes through the roof.  If it made it to target, it'll be half its retail price on ebay within 2 years. ;)

Those are all good points except you are not taking into consideration the "my impatience" aspect of things.  :-\
