I'm getting tired of the 6" of snow one day and then the 45 degree weather the next day that melts all the snow and then I get water trickling across the floor in the basement.

I hope Hasbro doesn't read this, but I will buy John B's X Wing because his names on the front of the package where I won't fall for buying the X wing and Y Wing from this last wave because the name is on the back. I'm not sure why that is.

Nice r2d2, a bit larger than hasbro votc, I would be prepared to pay maximum 15 bucks for it.

I live by one of the Targets that sells basic figs for $8.79 so maybe these will be cheaper else where, but when I put the numbers for these into the scanner they come up $16.99. At that price I think I'm only getting the R5-X? since "he" is the only character of these I don't have any version of.

Is the Hound's Tooth out yet?

Unless its come out in the last few days, no it is not.

Now that was a good episode last night. Why wouldn't they all be that way when we all know there is very little chance this show will be back next season?

Saw this wave and grabbed the X-wing...still no Rebel transport or Mon Cal ship...these out yet?


Unless you are talking about some ships I don't know about, the Rebel Transport came out a few months ago and the Mon Cal ship was a good yearish ago.

His speech after the loss to the Ravens last season is where he lost me.  As a fan, watching a team that basically choked it's way through December (3 years in a row), I don't need my Team's QB to say that if missing the playoffs is the worse thing that ever happens to him, then he has had it pretty good (or something to that effect)...  Say that in June...not January. 

That speech was absolutely horrible. If he was my QB I might feel the same way as you, but I think the quarterback is the most important position in all of sports and getting rid of a "good" one is a scary idea.

BTW: I saw in the two Walmarts that I went, has re-loaded the pegs with the CT 327th Star Corps, and oddly has the body of R5-A2, instead of the left leg  of MB-RA-7   :-\

So if you could't find Jawas to complete the astromech, now you know what to look  ;)

All the figs from older waves that are packed in with the wave 5 stuff have the new droid pieces if I remember correctly.

Wow just wow.

Now cut Romo and Fire Wade Phillips.

Oh and Cut Bobby Carpenter

I think it's hilarious they released TO.

And yeah go ahead and release Romo, then you can go pick up one of the other QBs out there that are so good. Oh wait there aren't any. Just ask the Vikings. I wouldn't be too quick to drop a younger QB who still has potential even if the big games aren't his thing so far.

I also have memories of my card collecting days and remember getting tired of it because you would spend so much money buying something without knowing what you were going to get and then ending up with multiples of the same thing and not any of another. That is the beauty of toy collecting. You know what you're getting. I'm not huge into GH stuff anyway, but I won't "randomly" buy these if I can buy a 2 pack where I know what I'm getting. If kids enjoy it then great, but I don't like it.

I think that anyone who expected the Prequels to be as good as the originals is diminishing how awesome the originals are and how difficult it is to make something that awesome.

I'm not going to hate on Lucas. I enjoy the prequels because they are Star Wars and they still brought more story to light, but I think some of there flaws weren't just because it's difficult to have the magic of the originals. A lot of it was because George has too many yes man and a gigantic ego.

There are certain parts of the prequels where I literally cringe because the dialouge is so bad. And I don't think all the people in on making this movie missed it. I think George got an idea in his head and that is what he was going to do no matter what. So if people want to criticize him for that they can. He isn't immune just because he made the originals so good.

All in all, of course, we all need to be very thankful to George for bringing so much enjoyment into our lives, Ep 1-6 and everything else that goes along with it. The fact we are so critical about it shows how much we love it.

The Mpls Star Tribune is reporting the Vikings are in "ongoing negotiations" (whatever that means) with the Broncos to trade for Cutler. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let this happen.

They actually changed the opening two weeks ago when there was a new episode. I am so glad the show got picked up for 2 more years. It has been a long time since it has been as good as it used to be but it still is a great show.

Again, I don't think they can go "too far" by making one book that is a horror novel. I think it will be interesting if it is a one time thing.
