I don't think there's anything to stop TB from pushing the Balrog as an exclusive somewhere else besides Wal Mart.  It's obvious both KB and TRU appreciate the line.  A rotocast Balrog (what, $10?) would blow out of stores.   The only alternative would be to shrink it and include it as part of the figure assortment ala Treebeard, but if Wal mart is really against this figure no matter what, then that's probably out, too.  Come to think of it, WM probably killed that Orc Warrior from Toy Fair, too.

This is good news.  I'm okay with waiting until he finishes King Kong for PJ to do it, though.  I think.   ;)

Modern Trading / Re: Spuffy's Trade List

Whither Spuffy's trade list?

2886
This is good news and let's hope it doesn't get buried like many other tail end items.  Although this will be probably repacked and repainted ad infinitum, so not to worry.   ;D

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Hold the phone--"Deluxe" Rieekan?
« on: September 25, 2003, 04:35 AM »
I was a little curious at first also why Riekken was considered a deluxe for all the reasons already mentioned, but yeah the screen type thing seems awfully big.  Then again, the bar sections that come with the Nightclub Obi Wan and Death Sticks Guy seem awfully big as well.

Happy Birthday!   ;D

Jimmy, if the Hoth wave is due for Nov., does it say when Bail Organa and the Nightclub figs are coming?  Short time frame there if you ask me.

I'll wait for a better pic to pass judgement.  From the looks of it, it's the Jabba Glob repainted, but can't be sure.

Good score indeed, Nicklab.   ;D

I actually thought Gandalf was okay.  Not $10 okay, but better than I expected.  

Don't know if anyone else has already mentioned this, but www.bigbadtoystore.com has the TTT red card Smeagol in stock for $9.99, in case anyone cares.

Got my Crossbow Uruk!   ;D  Thanks once again to HMI.  Had to leave Gandalf, which may come back to bite me on the you know what, on account of the $10 price tag.  The Uruk is fantastic, one of the best figures in the line.

Runs out the door to KB.
