IMDB lists it as #8 now, about $500,000 above Spidey 2. Just $4 million more and it can beat Return of the King.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Battle of Hoth Wave
« on: July 17, 2005, 07:56 PM »
Jeff, you're forgetting about the possibility of a drought. Stores still have a bunch of cases of ROTS pegwarmers in the back, and I'm sure that they won't order any new cases until these cases are sold (or shipped back, but that takes forever for Hasbro to finally buy back figures).

I'm hoping that we don't have a drought, and if we do, it better not be as bad as 2003, I missed just about all 03 figures at retail. I'm hoping for new shipping/case strategies from Hasbro, but knowing them we'll get all 8 figs packed 1 per case with a bunch of older figures/repacks.

Kid hangs self after Playstation taken away.

Hang in there, kid.  ;D

That's funny (don't worry, my spot in Hell was reserved long ago). Since all the politicians are trying to get San Andreas and future GTA games banned from the country, I'm sure someone could find some irony in this.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: EE Exclusive Astromech 5-Packs
« on: July 17, 2005, 02:33 AM »
I call bull**** on that R5-D4 remark. They've already made an R5 mold from the Star Tours figure (one of the best Astromechs ever made, IMO), and it could easily be modded to be a movie accurate R5-D4 (just need to get new "eyes" and add two antennae).

As for the sculpts in the set, I hope they don't use the ROTS Sneak Preview body, I'm in the minority in that I don't like the "turn head, move third leg" action feature, as he can't freely move his head. I'd prefer for them to use the Bar2-D2 sculpt, as well as the R4-M9, if they're making any of those.

^^ I like that idea, especially the AT-AT Pilot. He needs a newer sculpt with "updated" articulation. However, I'd replace the Astromech with either an SA Snowtrooper or SA Hoth Soldier. Both are overdue for awesome SA versions.

If you have a PS2 or Xbox and aren't very religious, I suggest playing any game from the Grand Theft Auto series. So much stuff to do, it will make the 3 weeks go by like that. *snaps fingers*

I also suggest a few SW games, like Bounty Hunter and Battlefront (already mentioned). If you have a Gamecube, try out the Rogue Squadron games, both are a few years old and can be picked up pretty cheap.

And of course, the sports games (NFL, NCAA, NBA, etc.), if you're in to those. :)

That's really all I can suggest. Good luck with the surgery! :)

I like how they're going back to "themed" waves like in the first half of 2004. There were like 3-4 figs per wave, and they shipped a new one about once a month, making the figs pretty easy to hunt down. Hopefully they continue to do this.

The Exclusives sound good, can't wait to see pics of them.

This gives me a lot more hope! :)

From GH:

Hasbro announced Entertainment Earth's exclusive Astromech Droid 5-Pack Exclusive!

Two five packs:

One Imperial pack containing–
R2-Q2, R4-A22, R3-T2, R4-E1, and R3-P6

R2-A6, R2-X2, R2-C4, R3-X2, and R4-M5

****, more overpriced sets from EE. Why must I be a sucker for Astromechs? Ah well, I can't wait to buy these. I just hope they aren't TOO expensive. :-\

HOLY ****! Those figs RULE! I have NO complaints yet. I just wish that the Carbonite block didn't have the melting effect. Oh well.

I'm also glad that Leia doesn't have a sculpted detonator!

I like the card colors, but I hate that stupid curve design. Looks too fat. >:(

Interesting. Though I won't really be sad if I miss out on it.

« on: July 15, 2005, 09:43 PM »
Woohoo! I'm just glad to finally be seeing them. Now if this Bail is different, I'll have to go out and get the carded version.

Damn. I hate those ******* for leaving Austin. I could have an Evolutions set now. Thanks a lot, K-Mart! >:(

And you all found these at K-Mart?
