On the bright side, the box was almost large enough to use as shelter when I arrived home, too bad it rained this weekend. ;)

Was at a Target saturday and saw a couple of these sale items.  They had a ton of the order 66 packs, but I have a complete set so I passed.  They had two of the Rancor packs for $19.98 a piece, but I didn't have the money to spend on then, so I walked passed them.  Later, my Wife was in the magazine/computer game isle and an older guy comes practically running through with the two Rancors and a hand basket of other toys.  He was in such a rush to get these he was knocking stuff off the shelves.  I'm sure his plan was to get to the next Target, so I understand what he was thinking, its still funny to see an adult in such a rush for toys.

I've seen it noted other places that the basic figures are on sale too, but they were regular price, along with the Mighty Muggs and I think the comic packs.  Though i think the Muggs are carrying the same packaging through the Legacy/Clone Wars line.

I have the feeling the retailers wouldn't want to do this because of competitive reasons.  Behind the Customer Service Desk at Walmart (I read it while waiting to return something) is their policy that although guests are welcome, if they catch you doing anything that could be construed as checking prices or inventories for a competitor, that they reserve the right to kick you out.  If you can't do that in the store, what makes you think they'll put their inventory online for their competition as well as the public to see?

I don't know.  Probably put ehm out there for whoever wants them.  Two figures for 10 bucks is a good deal, so I'm not too torn up about not making use of all the parts.  Not sure home many Legacy figures I'll buy, but maybe I'l build a Franken-PO.  We're you thinking I should keep you in mind if I don't want those parts, JediPurge?

Uhm, that's Anakin you're thinking of, we never saw on screen Obi get captured, or the Destroyer Droids pursue him and then he's in binders in front of Dooku.

I got the Plo Koon set last night.  I never got a Plo Koon fig on a single card before, so I'm pretty excited about that and the droid looks pretty slick.  The packaging shows the droid having a lighter green paint job which looks a little cooler to me, but oh well.  I think I'm only also going to get Watto and Kit.  I'm not as into the Protocol droids and the Pilot Luke and R2 don't do anything for me.  None of these sets seemed to be in greater numbers at the WM I went to.  The only thing was that between the display they were in and the height of the shelves, you basically only could take the ones in the front row, otherwise you had to slide the display out part way.  This makes the ones further back harder to see, so this might be part of why some of the sets seem less common on the shelf.  I know once I slide one out I saw where all the Kit sets were, since I didn't see any in the front row of the display.

I'd assume that either Dooku or the Geonosians confiscated it.  Then he gets thrown a replacement by the N'Jedi during the rescue.

Ronderu Lij Kummmar
Jaster Mereel
Super Articulated Republic Commando
Kal Skirata (w/ a Verpine Shattergun)
Walon Vau (w/ Mirdika)
Darth Plageous (And maybe a book about him too?)

Has anyone else tried to read the Silmarillion (sp?).  I don't often have getting through a book, but man that was a tough one.  I couldn't even keep straight who was who, Tolkien kept changing the names it seemed.  LOTR was a better read for me.

I haven't read any of the HP books either.  But today I'm picking up Shield of Lies from the library, its the second book in the Black Fleet Crisis trilogy.  They had to order it from another library because their copy is "Lost".  This library is one of the few in the area, that I can think of, that doesn't make you walk through the book detector, so someone probably walked out with it.  But really? An obscure Star Wars book?  Couldn't you have stolen something a little bit cooler?  Anyway, liked the first one in the series so I'm looking forward to this one.  I'm really hoping everything turns out of for Leia, Luke and friends, always seem to be getting in trouble...

I don't know if this is only me, but I can't stand ABC and ESPN broadcasts of auto races.  They have the track volume up way to high and you can't even hear what they heck the announcers are saying.  If I didn't want to hear the announcers, I would turn the sound down myself.  If you watch Speed or Fox's broadcast of F1 you actually hear the cars, but still hear what the announcers have to say, because they actually have intelligent things to say about the race.  I guess my point is that I much prefer the early part of the NASCAR season when the races on still on Fox.
