Great news about Luke and Yoda.  I'll still be buying two of each anyhow, to display in both their poses.

Went to TRU today to check the Ringbearer set and found the elusive Gandalf the Grey new head sculpt!  And Traveling Bilbo, too!   ;D

I started hard core with the Playmates Star Trek line in '92, I think it was, and then followed that until it sort of spiraled out of control toward the end, which is a pattern I sense happening over and over.

The Simpsons I love I love I love, but I jumped ship a year ago, when the characters stopped appealing to me, and space and money became much larger issues than before.

SW used to be one of everything loose until EP1, I guess, since there are still a few things I don't have.  Now I just buy what I want, which is less and less.  Space, money, do I really care about a Ozzel figure?  What does that say about me as a lifelong SW fan?  Am I just burned out?

I kind of am.  I've been thinking about taking a break just to recharge the batteries, you know?  It hasn't been fun for a while, and I miss that.

But then there's things like the Sandcrawler, or Dagobah Luke or Bespin Leia, and you're right back there.  We'll see.

Whedon / X-Men: Cool.

Whedon / Angel: Even better.

This week's episode shows arguably the best show on TV getting better and better even after it's cancelled.  No spoilers, but  :o  

It does seem a little 'Didn't we do this last year?' but much, much more effective.  Can't wait to see how this plays out.

My thoughts:

Ultimate Obi Wan
Ultimate Qui Gon
Ultimate Darth Maul

Hmm... nah.

Super poseable Stormtrooper / Sandtrooper
SP Han Stormtrooper
SP Luke Stormtrooper
Princess Leia (The '98 one doesn't do it anymore)
Death Star Trooper

Snowspeeder Wedge
Snowspeeder Luke
SP Snowtrooper
SP Hoth Han
SP Hoth Leia
General Veers
SP Hoth Rebel Soldier

SP Endor Han
SP Endor Luke
SP Endor Leia
Rogue Leader Wedge

Jadesfire: The 8 figs for $89.99 are the ANH Luke w/ cloth, Ben, super poseable Han, and Leia.  I assume this will break down 2 per case.

The 12 figs for $65 is the Dagobah wave with the repack Cantina Han in there as well, I think.  

I think you guys are wise in pre-ordering.  Myself, the pricetag and uncertainity about availability and the whole idea, really, has settled it for me.  I won't be buying them.  Money is tight as well.

This is of course without seeing Yoda, Vader, or the Endor Han, so updates as warranted.   ;)

I can't say it any better than the rest of you.  Someone has really dropped the ball over there.

The threpacks (get it?  Get it?   ;))  make sense when you think about it in terms of characters, but TB should have made some effort to offer something new ala the ringbearers set.

Looks good.  More interested in Troy, but still.  But the figures suck.  Boy, do they suck.

You can see some Greg stylin' going on over in the Fan's Choice #6 poll at Scum right now.  Good lord.

I know the general nonsense revolving around 'Scum last year is what sent me here, and I'm glad, because here you have intelligent conversation.  You rarely do there.  It's sort of like a classroom run by one of the kids.

Hasbro: This isn't Sophie's Choice.  You should repack ALL these figures and not make the folks who don't have them choose.

And you shouldn't scuttle the Fan's Choice program on a lame idea like this.  All it does is signal rough seas ahead for the line, especially when there appears to be NOTHING in the way of new product after September.

Oh, well.  More money for me.

The set isn't rare, it's a TRU exclusive, which means it's not even difficult to find.  Except around here, but there isn't anything here at all.  Nada.  Zilch.  Zero.

Oh yeah, the economy thing... how could I forget about that?   ;)
