I think if there had been a taunting call on the Vikes while the Pack was making their first drive, Viking fans would be sining a different tune about it.

I'm sure you're right. And then you would be me and I would be you in this conversation. That's creepy.

Gotta disagree on the taunting thing Justin. Your guy standing over I guy talking smack is taunting (and pure stupidity).

So you're telling me that none of the Viking players talked smack to any of the Packer players throughout the game?  That was a pretty simply play in the middle of the field - I get major taunting calls or excessive celebration, but that's a pretty subjective call especially early in the game.

My computer must have deleted the part where I said no one else taunted anyone else in the game. Just like all other penalties only a handful get called and when you stand right over the guy (don't know if you saw a replay on tv of how blatant it was) then when you get called you can't be too upset.

One year my dad and step-mom had to get us stuff from Santa Anonymous. We got a basketball, pencil sharpener, and something else I forget. I would have been thrilled to get an action figure even if I didn't know the line it was from let alone if it had been SW.

Great points Chewie. I hate the idea of less movie related stuff, but in a crappy economy you push what you have to. But just like you said, don't blame us. I won't pay $8.24 for an invisible figure. Sorry Hasbro, just can't do it. I can't buy stuff that's not there.

Just thought I'd throw this out there. These sets are on a 10/11 planogram, BUT most of the time these aren't necessarily due until the Tuesday of that week and may even be later. So if you are at Target at 8am on Sunday and they aren't there don't be shocked. Leaked plano dates on the internet are not the same as advertised street dates.

Just a friendly reminder from my days working there.

That was an awesome game. Not so thrilled with the play calls by the Vikes at the end, but great outcome.

And that play where Favre had 12 seconds really was embarrassing.

For repaints with some new parts these are really nice and worth picking up.

At $13 a pop its a comic pack without the comic but they are far superior to the overpriced WM DF sets.

Just picked these up yesterday and I have to agree with you. I only planned on buying the two new Jedi, but the rest were more appealing than I expected.

Just picked up the full set of Geonosis 2 packs. They weren't on the shelf. I had to use an in to get them from the back. Didn't need all six, but oddly I bought them all anyway.

Don't think I'm not tempted, but my darling wife (She Who Must be Obeyed) might have an apoplexy if she finds out I am wasting money on magic beans toys. When I am about to be unemployed in 6 weeks.

I found a really good workaround for this.  I've tried it once or twice.
Her: "Is this new?"
Me: "No."

FOOLPROOF!  And true in some cases, at least in terms of percentage on some of those Battle Packs...

That works a lot better when you buy the item with cash and then throw out the receipt. When it shows up in a box at your front door and your CC statement says EE on it. Saying oh I bought that six years ago, but it just showed up doesn't work.

I'm really excited for this Monday's game.

It's a little known fact but Favre actually used to play for the Packers.  ;)

I'll admit I'm a little worried about the outcome, but definitely excited about the game.  Hopefully the Pack remembers to bring their offensive line this time.

Just remember that if the Packers win you have to be gracious in victory, but if the Vikings win I don't.  ;)

Okay, but remember if the Vikings win, they needed a Packers QB to do it.   ;D

You better believe it. That's what happens when your team thinks T Jack is a real QB for a couple years.

I could have sworn it was going to say "dude in the blue Royal Guard outfit" next to his name on the card.  ;)

Sorry to be the moron, but is Captain Argyus the dude in the blue Royal Guard outfit?
