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.

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.  ;)

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.
