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?

I'm seeing different listings for what this wave is. Is it Thire, BD, Luminara, and Royal Guard? or something else?

I did not think the Vikes dominated the Niners. I am also not basing my "philosophy" of your anti-Vikingness on this one discussion.

I think what Justin is is whatever the opposite of a homer is towards the Vikings.

Okay, THAT doesn't even make sense.  Are you still drunk from the combined Pats/Vikes wins yesterday?

Nope. Just calling it like I see it.

Did you watch the game? 
I'll ask this again...did you watch the game Justin?

I think what Justin is is whatever the opposite of a homer is towards the Vikings.

The Vikings and Patriots both won yet it was still a bad day because my dream of back to back no win seasons for the Lions is over.

And I love that JediJman called you a homer Scott. Cause he isn't one for the Pack?  :-\

Hey, I will be the first to admit that the Packers got outplayed by the Bungles last week.  Rodgers was off, the receivers couldn't catch anything, and the defense was awful outside of Woodsoon (C. Benson 140 yards?  really!?)  There's a difference between being a big fan of your team vs. living in a fantasy land where they are always perfect.

I can't argue that. I guess I didn't take Scott's words quite as strong as you did.

I blame Hasbro - their own market research should show what is going to oversaturate the market.  They deal with all the retailers on this and need to do a better job of managing what they produce.  Hasbro needs to get a better understanding of supply and demand.  That's why I rarely blame this stuff on the retailers themselves.  This is Hasbro's baby, and they're supposed to be the experts on it.  Not a retailer that carries 100,000 other products in their store.

I agree. I think it's humerous (in a it's easier to laugh than cry sort of way) that movie after movie gets these crazy amounts of space and quantity and the same thing happens over and over. You can't have hundreds of figs on the pegs at all times and honestly expect them to sell. You have to have small enough quantities to let stuff sell and then new stuff come in it's place. Price obviously doesn't help, but Hasbro couldn't have really thought all those hundreds of figures at every store were really going to sell.
