Found wave 2 tonight.  Still don't have wave 1, because Newforce cancelled my order.   :(

My thoughts are that Jedi Council #2 wins out over #1 and vice-versa with the War Room sets.  I've waited since 1999 for a Yaddle figure so today was a particularly exciting day in terms of SW collecting.

Lately it's been going very well.  Yesterday, I found all three CW bonus packs.  Today, both new Screen Scenes and the Emperor wave.  So I'm completely caught up for the first time in... forever.   :)

And if you're a LOTR collector, it's hog heaven right now, too.   ;D

Congrats!   ;D

Hours later, it's still in stock, so I would figure they got solid cases.  I'll bet they got solid cases of Eowyn, PEW, and Galadriel, too, which is why those figs are still in stock days after going up on the site.

  RIP both.  A sad loss of two great talents.   :(

For me the Value packs win out.  One, because I can't find the mutli packs anywhere, and two, because I only wanted one of each rank for my modest army.  So all I really want of the multi-packs is the green kneeling set.

For $4.77 you'd be a fool to pass these up.  Looks like I'm buying Yoda after all.

Middle Earth / Re: Lord of the Rings Figures
« on: September 6, 2003, 03:39 PM » has pics of the Harad Archer and Armored Pippin!   :o  Both look fantastic except the likeness on Pippin is a little... off.  Maybe it's just me.  Can't wait to buy LOADS of those archers.

I hear you on that, Nicklab.  The Academy/Hollywood does have an unspoken bias sometimes against outsiders, not to mention good ideas.

As for why the articulated Gollum looks like Smeagol, I have no idea.  I have the sense that we'll get a Gollum variant of this guy soon enough.

Can't wait for Spike and Willow dolls.

It could be those things, but Gladitor won, and it was made in Malta amongst other places.  The English Patient won, and was made in Tunisia and Italy.  All with Hollywood money, like LOTR has been.   For my part I think it's the same gentryed snobbery that exists in publishing.  If it's popular, they reckon, it can't be good.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: General Malaise
« on: September 5, 2003, 03:26 PM »
I think it's all of the above.

I've been feeling a general type malaise about SW for a while now.  I found the new Emperor wave at Target a few days ago and for the first time since 1995 I left brand new SW figs and didn't look back.  Part of it is little money, no space, and characters I care nothing about.  I'm really excited for Bail Organa and Obi Wan Nightclub and the Hoth group, but these three, yikes.  And there's also the fatigue factor, and there's always too much of a good thing.  I'll always love SW and SW toys, but everyone needs a little break.
