No matter how hard I try I just can't see $80 worth of toy here. I plan on passing. We'll see though once I can actually look at one in a store.

I just have a giant Excel spreadsheet with everything in alphabetical order and what line it's from, etc. That way when I can't remember if I own something or a version of something I can look it up that way. Not ideal, but better than nothing and once you have it originally done it's easy to update.

They should be under a new DPCI. The pick label on the case is correct which is how I got them to pull it, but the barcode on the toys are tied to the old DPCI. The other two in the case he brought out were the Cad Bane and the Anakin one so I'm sure whoever tied the UPC to the old DPCI at the Target headquarters thought they were a part of the old line.

Picked up the Y Wing Scout Bomber w/ Clone Trooper Pilot and the Republic Scout Speeder w/ ARF Trooper at Target today by using the DPCI Jedi mind trick. They scan with the old deluxe DPCI for the clearance price of $13.08. Cool to save money but not going to be cool when the computer counts never change for them to order more.

So.....Spawn was on this morning while I was getting ready and it got me thinking.  Why no remake on that turd?

That is a great question. The movie was horrendous and in this era of every comic book getting a movie/another movie why not Spawn with a good script?

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Re: 12" IG-88? Oh my.

I'm still trying to determine if IG88 and Boba Fett Sideshow figs or continuing to be married. Still too close to say yet.

Do we know for sure what other sets of these are "in stores" now besides "Ass. on Geo." and "Cad's Escape"? ie are the other 4 Jeff has listed supposed to be out now?

Does anyone watch the WSOP on TV? Why in the world do they think we want to watch it live this year? I have enjoyed this in years past where you get to see it taped and editted, but watching them fold around to the blinds the whole time is crazy boring to me.

Now reading "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick.

San Francisco lies under a cloud of radioactive dust. People live in half-deserted apartment buildings, and keep electric animals as pets because so many real animals have died. Most people emigrate to Mars - unless they have a job to do on Earth. Like Rick Deckard - android killer for the police and owner of an electric sheep. This week he has to find, identify, and kill six androids which have escaped from Mars. They're machines, but they look and sound and think like humans - clever, dangerous humans. They will be hard to kill. The film Blade Runner was based on this famous novel.

Just getting ready to start this now as well.

They were making fun of Shia the other day on the local Sports radio because he had said he was done with the TF movies since "Sam's character was fully developed now". So in theory he is done. I'm sure if they stick a briefcase of money at his feet he'd do another though.

I was expecting this to be horrendous like the second one, but forgetting the fact it could have been 30 to 45 minutes shorter I thought it was worth seeing. Glad my friend dragged me there.

Found Koth, Offee, Colt, and Vancouver Clone Trooper yesterday at a local Target. Nice to find something for myself finally again.

I would love just one toy from this line, but can't pull the trigger for the $75ish. $1350!!!!!! No words.

I had to look up a picture because I had no clue who they were talking about. I actually recognize that dude. Sounds like DUI is the initial thinking.

At least he didn't kill anyone else.

I thought I heard he killed a passenger too. But I could be wrong.
