Neal, how was it?

Yeah, that's awesome! Opener worthy for sure. Man, how sweet would it be if they did Admiral Trench?

Or maybe the Stealth Ship in the midsize line?

Yeah, I saw that somewhere too...does not seem to be from any existing BP we know about on the horizon, but I agree it seems sort of lackluster as a single carded release. Probably from something we haven't seen yet.

That whole Geonosis arc has been a gold mine of figures, just wish we could get some of the vehicles.

We ditched the land line finally when we moved last month. It felt weird at first, especially having 2 small kids, but we really haven't missed it that much.

I'll never, ever ditch cable TV. Maybe it is a generational thing, but I can't stand watching TV or movies on a goddang computer.

First of all, I don't have a 50 inch computer monitor in HD surround sound. I don't see the thrill of giving myself a migraine trying to squint at my favorite shows while I strain to hear the sound through my crappy soundcard.

And I've yet to download any show that steamed smoothly, even on my top of the line work laptop on our T1 connection. You invariably get those annoying buffering delays or whatever. Even On-Demand works better than that.

Fantastic wave...Chewbacca is a Grand Slam, IMO...that Bowcaster alone is freaking epic. Whoever is designing those things is earning his dough for sure, first Embo's and now this.

Piell looks really nice too, and armored Savage is predictably awesome.

This whole line seems to be peaking right now in terms of the sculpts, if not articulation.

Picked up a carded Jann Tosh today to keep plugging away at my Droids collection. I may as well savor this because the remianing few I need, for the most part, are going to be very pricey.

Great game...scoreless after two! Next goal may win it. Both teams are skating well, refs are letting them play.

That play where the dude got smashed in the face with the puck was brutal. I never want to know what that would feel like.

Hockey players are the toughest mofos in sports, for shizzle.

Kenickie hell, he will always be Zack Allan to me.  :'(

RIP brother.

What, did they just limit it to stuff from the 80's or 90's? They missed several decades of outstanding programs.

Johnny Quest
Thundarr the Barbarian
Herculoids
Space Ghost
The 70's Flash Gordon
Original Spider-Man with that gay song
60's Fantastic Four
Voltron
Starblazers

Shoot, I could probably come up with 25 just from my childhood alone...To Be Continued

I'm definitely bending over backwards, forwards and every which way to find not only Wedge, but another Gammo. This assortment has just not hit here yet. Apparently none of the peeps on JD have found him either.

What a wild game...I really thought the Bulls were going to get it done. For about 45 minutes they looked invincible.

Should be a great Finals, so many angles, storylines, etc. I just wish they would start throwing down this weekend!

I dug out an old box of original MOTU stuff and was disappointed to find out there is almost no secondary market value in these things at all.

Why is all the stuff from the 80's so worthless? Just too much of it around?

2578
It doesn't really matter does it? No one ever dies permanently in comic books. I hate that.

Ok, we're halfway there! Awesome showing by the Mavs last night, Dirk was money once again. I think you have to be a little concerned about their propensity to fall behind late in this OKC series though. The thrilling come from behind heroics are exciting, but they're not likely to duplicate that success consistently against a veteran team like the Heat.

What's up with hometown hero Eric Maynor (VCU) waving off his OKC teammates at the end there? Did he forget who he was?  :D

Looking forward to a spirited match-up tonight, Bulls are going to bring it.

Losing the series is one thing, but giving up the tying goal with less than 20 seconds to play in a game you HAVE to have is pretty choke-worthy, IMO. Dudes, I was rooting for them, believe me, I rooted for them against the Red Wings and they almost blew that too, this after that poor showing last year.

Much as I root for 'em, the Caps certainly deserve that rep too now. Ya just gotta own it until you prove otherwise. No offense to anyone.

And ya, no interest in Bruins/Canucks, just no "zazz" in that matchup for me. Both teams just bore me to tears. Great franchises, lots of history, just not the marquee-type storylines an average joe like me could appreciate.

Admittedly, I'm just a casual fan.
