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.

Nice detective work there, that is really curious.

So they just slapped the wrong name on the card?

Since the JediInsider image was uncarded, how can we be sure THAT was not Blackout? He does look, well, blacker than the other dude.

I apologize also, because I have no recollection of who those source characters were from the show.

Whew, Miami really escaped narrowly last night, that would have been a tough loss to overcome. Pretty exciting stuff, although I still cannot understand how the Bulls are hanging in these games. They've barely got 2 guys that can score with any consistency. Yeah, the defense is good, but so is Miami's and their offense is much, much better. I guess rebounding is a big key, but still, kind of a head scratcher.

Hoping Mavs can close it out tonight and get some rest.

Will the Sharks EVER shed that "choker" label? Guess not.

If Boston comes out of the East, I'm done with watching hockey this year. I just have no interest in that match up.

At least if the Lightning win it takes a little tarnish off the Caps loss to them.

Ok, confused again.

So Sandtroopers has a new picture of the carded Stealth Ops Clone (CW57) - looks very cool.

I don't see what that has to do with Commander Blackout. (as per thr front page blurb) I mean, they are separate characters and that is going to be a separate carded release from TRU, is it not?

Is this another one of those Capt Fordo/ARC Trooper Commander deals where the same figure is being identified multiple ways by the online community?

I haven't seen any other sites refer to this figure as Blackout, so I'm just curious where that information originated.

I feel pretty secure that she has enough money already to resist the lure of ever writing any more of these. Kind of glad too, go out on top with the happy ending.

They just need to set up some kind of legal mumbo-jumbo that prevents anyone else from stepping in and besmirching her legacy by trying to write more books. I would hate to see this franchise go the way of Dune, or even Star Wars.

This thing reminds me of that Saturday morning live action sci-fi show from my childhood, where a bunch of scientists rolled around a post-apocalyptic America in a tricked out futuristic RV like this. Anyone else remember that? Cannot think of the name for the life of me. Sort of like Space 1999, but cheesier somehow.

Right, Miami has plenty of dudes who have earned their shot, chiefly Lebron. This is not an up-and-comer type team with no previous playoff experience. OKC had never even won a playoff series before this year.

I just feel like the general path is that you slog it out for a couple of years in the playoffs before getting that title shot. Pistons did it, Bulls did it, Spurs, etc.

Even when Boston got there that first year with their Big 3 the guys themselves were pretty battle-tested. I just like to see a little seasoning rather than the "flash-in-the-pan" type teams. OKC and Chi-town are both young and have time to refine their games. They'll have other shots.

I hope Miami matches the grit Dallas displayed last night. I feel like both teams have one eye on each other now and are trying to keep pace. Should be a great Finals.

Curious that they have these listed as Waves 4 & 5.  ???

They all look terrific, IMO. Savage is top-notch, Seripas outstanding as hoped, and I was blown away by how cool Saesee Tiin came out. Definitely opener worthy.

That ARF Trooper (Kamino) was the "mystery figure" from ToyFair, so good to see that confirmed.

Great stuff!!

Is that an artist' rendering or an actual photo of the toy? It's kind of hard to tell.


I give them props for trying something different, but it doesn't seem particularly exciting, IMO. Is it going to shoot some kind of giant missile? Or just the weeny ones?

I've decided I'm actually pretty excited for a Mavs/Heat Finals. Great storylines on both sides there.

Bulls and OKC are nice stories too, but they arrived too early. They have not paid their playoff dues yet, IMO. See you guys over the next few years.

Ugh, these series have been so boring for some reason. Stick a fork in the Sharks...try adding the phrase "Penalty kill" to your lexicon.

Yeah, definitely NOT worth the wait. At least they admitted it sucked right up front. That schtick is completely played out now.
