Knowing the story of SW, watching the Jedi die is powerful to ME. I don't need to feel a certain way about them. They were important one way or the other.

Good game last night. Henne sure looked good.

And I got to see Brady play for the first time this year and it sure is hard to watch him as just a mediocre QB. I guess it shows how hard it is to come back from missing a whole season.

It's a "manchurian candidate" type thing, so I think it's plausible.  I never honestly had a problem with it.  I'm sure the more independant the Clone, the less likely they are to follow the order, but the true independant Clones are the ARC's, perhaps the Commandoes...  Commanders are trained by ARCs, according to EU, but they're not ARCs.  They're still the more simplified Clone design.

I really like the "Manchurian Candidate" comparison. I think that's a good way to look at it.

I still think it was highly implausible all of the clones instantly turned on the Jedi in the first place.



It's actually super duper plausible since it's what happened in the movie. ;)

How are the order 66 scenes already so powerful? At what point did the Jedi earn our sympathy?

How is the massacre of the Jedi Order not powerful, regardless of how you feel about the Jedi?

The Yankees did more than their share to win that series, but the Twins sure did all they could to give that series to the Yankees too.

The Twins lost and it's over.

But MLB has 6 umps instead of the normal 4 in the playoffs so they can make all these calls correctly and that what is just so hard to swallow for me.

My current thinking on this is that the show will end with Ashoka no longer being a Padawan and going off with her own troops. They are NEVER going to show her dying on the show. Captain Rex will offer to keep an eye on her for Anakin and ask to transfer to Ashoka's squad as their commander. Then when GL finally releases ROTS on BR, we'll get a new Order 66 scene where Ashoka is taken out by Captain Rex wearing the ROTS style armor - which after the cartoon being on for three or four seasons would make that scene incredibly powerful.


That sounds great. I'm going to be really disappointed if this isn't what happens now. The Order 66 scene(s) are so powerful already and that would just top it off.

Build a Droid has been by far the best insert that Hasbro's ever done.  I really wish they were continuing.

Agree with you. Hasbro just needs to STOP making the obscure figures! They really do! That's the No. 1 way to get figure sales up again (besides lowering the price of figs by a $1 or 2.  :D

But how many more resculpts of the main characters can you sell before the entire collecting community abandons the line?

Exactly. I don't need nothing but resculpts. There has to be some middle ground.

WOW!!!!! AWESOME!!!!!!!

Some stores stock "early morning" instead of "overnight". So 4am to 12am instead of 10pm to 6 am, but most of the time you'll see the stuff early in the morning AND certainly new stuff showing up between Sun. and Thurs. makes sense.

Does anyone know when Target stores re-stock their figures on the shelves??  ???

They restock over night, every day if they are high volume and some stores skip a couple days if they are low volume, and then the system pulls backstocked stuff all day as it sells (if they have any in back, that is). So they had plenty of chances to get new stuff between Sunday and Thursday.

Does anybody know if the Vikings played the Packers recently?

I'd like to see these go away all together.   :P  Making things harder for people to find is not the way to support collectors.  No wonder the supposed "collector market" has declined in sales lately. 

I would like to see the exclusive market for crap like another vehicle with a new paint job go away. Some of the stuff they wouldn't make in mass that is then an exclusive I can live with.

I try my hardest to take games for what they are. What I mean is I don't care what would have happened with out this or that penalty or if this play hadn't happened. They did and the Vikings won and it won't change. The penalties were lopsided, but I don't buy that the Vikings had just as many penalties as the Pack but the refs just didn't call them. And if they did, oh well, Vikes still won. I don't need to justify anything in my head. We won.

My dad always complains about how the Vikings get hosed in penalty calls and I always roll my eyes and ignore him. I guess I should do that more with you.

It sure is a good thing we knew each other so long before our football feud started.  ;)
