Not sure if I'll be able to see it or not, thanks to the clouds. >:( If I can't, I'll just see footage on the news tomorrow. :)

More detailed pics have hit FBTB!

I am slightly disappointed in Yoda's Hut, but the X-Wing looks AWESOME! :o

And FBTB is saying that Yoda might not be able to fit into Luke's backpack.

You can also preorder the set, but you have to call the Shop at Home phone number.

RAW Review.

PROS:

- The ending was pretty good. Very horror movie-esque: "Burn in hell." Classic.
- The Opening segment with Goldberg/HHH was pretty good. At least they're building a feud.
- The women's match was decent this week.
- I'm enjoying Coach's heel turn. He is actually somewhat entertaining now.
- Rosey/Hurricane/Goldust/Storm segments were entertaining again this week. Why not let them wrestle?

CONS:

- Triple H's shoot on Smackdown was unnecessary. If Angle is a "Paper Champion", then Triple H must be a "Paper-Mache(sp?) Champion".  
- I respect Vince McMahon's character and his often great acting, but sheesh. He and his family are taking over both shows with their own personal feuds. Let's see some wrestlers Vince. It's also sad to see them take over the aptly-named "Highlight Reel," which has been the highlight of RAW as of late. Just rename it "The McMahon/Kliq Show". Can we go at least one week without seeing a McMahon?
- Why must Mark Henry return? At least he's with Teddy Long though, and maybe he can get him over. Maybe.
- No point in Orton vs. Maven. Just let Orton feud with Michaels already.
- Dudleys/Resistance = stale, dull, boring, etc. La Resistance's gimmick is old. This war stuff is old. It just reeks of 1998, I'm sorry. If I want politics, I'll turn on CNN or MSNBC.
- Christian needs help to beat Lawler? Oookaay.
- Where was Stacy? And Test? And Steiner?

Overall, RAW was borderline okay this week. I'll give it a C+. Not bad, but not good either.

No, I did not order this event.

Summerslam Results

La Resistance def. Dudley Boyz to retain the World Tag Team Titles

Undertaker def. A-Train

Shane McMahon def. Eric Bischoff

Eddie Guerrero def. Rhyno, Chris Benoit, and Tajiri to retain the U.S. Championship

Kurt Angle def. Brock Lesnar to retain the WWE Championship

Kane def. Rob Van Dam

Triple H def. Goldberg, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Kevin Nash, and Randy Orton to retain the World Heavyweight Championship.

 MY THOUGHTS:
What the hell was this? No title changes, and every single match was predictable. Fatal 4 Way and WWE Title matches sounded like they were the best all night. Why were Goldberg and Triple H the last two left in the Chamber when they did absolutely nothing prior to that? Yawn. Next week is the one year anniversary of the Title on RAW, meaning that The Gay-me has held the title for 11 friggin months.

And last but not least, why did they decide to turn Coach heel? ???

Found this on the FBTB Forums:

Fly the X-wing to Dagobah!
Luke Skywalker has piloted his X-wing Fighter to Dagobah to learn the secrets of the Force from Yoda! Can the Jedi Master train Luke in time to stop the Empire from defeating the Rebels? Will Luke master the Force and be able to raise his X-wing from the swamp? The choice is yours when you build this exciting new set, featuring the X-wing, Yoda's house on Dagobah, Luke Skywalker and Yoda! Ages 8-12. 563 pieces.
#4502 X-wing Fighter $49.99

Sounds pretty neat! I hope it comes with an R2 also!

BTW, no pics are availible yet, but they should be in the next Lego Shop @ Home Catalogue. Hope it looks good! :)

This morning, I was sitting around eating breakfast when my mom put the newspaper on the table. What is one of the stories on the front page?

"The Saga of the Star Wars Kid"  ;D

The article pretty much covers everything from the making of the video to the lawsuit. The newspaper even uploaded both the article AND the video on their website here. The video is one of the inhanced versions though.

Nash is scheduled to do a movie which required him to have short hair,  thus the Hair vs. Hair match.  It probaly also required the blondehair,  which I don't like.

Rumor has it that Nash is supposed to be a Military Leader in the new Punisher movie. :o

Well would you look at that, I had time to do my RAW Review! :)

PROS:

- RVD vs. Christian was a pretty good match. Plus, RVD took some sick bumps.
- The S.*.*.*. segment was pretty funny this week.
- The Coach is gone
- Jericho carried (literally) Nash to an OK match, and won to boot!
- The Women's match was decent. Plus Gail Kim's new suit looked good.

CONS:

- Bischoff/Linda. 'Nuff said. I don't even want to begin to describe all the things wrong with that. They never finished the Bischoff/Steph Halloween Kiss angle, what makes you think that they will finish this one? I hope that this goes into another WCW vs. WWE angle with Bisch as WCW's leader, but that will never happen.
- The highlight reel was a big mess that was pretty lame. We all knew what was coming, just like it does before every ppv.
- Test/Steiner v. 1,234,567.0 was un-neccesary
- The "strip show" was an insult to wrestling fans. WTF was that? A couple jobbers get all excited seeing a woman that is owned by another co-worker dance? At least try and make it seem somewhat realistic.
- Goldberg/Orton - meh. Who cares? Everyone knew Goldberg was gonna make quick work of him. Once again, I will say that Orton is being crammed down our throats.
-Why show Storm and Goldust if they didn't even do anything?
-Nash looked like the 1999 Jeff Jarrett at the end.

All in all, this was the basic filler RAW, which did nothing but hye Summerslam. I'll give it a  D+ this week.

I'm really glad that no one fell for that one...  That is a sad attempt to try to fool someone.  Wasn't EPI Mace a peg warmer? ::)

Not around here. A friend had told me that he was rare, so I picked one up the first time I saw it. I never saw the figure again.

Usually, I smuggle my candy in, unless I don't have time to stop by the local grocery store.

At the theater, I get a Medium Popcorn (with butter), a Medium Lemonade (And I am ALWAYS asked if I want to make it a large for a quarter. A guy once told me that they are forced to ask that, though), and I get Reese's Pieces for candy.

 :)
