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.

This wave is out in the Phillipines. My boss is headed there next week. Hmmm...

Would guess the Capture the Droids BP is from that episode where Cad Bane kidnaps them. Likely all repacks, 3po, r2 and Cad Bane w/Todo.

Not sure who they would stick in the Zillo BP, other than Goji. Maybe Anakin or Obi-Wan, although it would be a great opportunity to give us that Chancellor Palpatine so many of us crave. Really though, they just need to give us the damn Zillo beast!

At this rate there's not going to be much left to reveal at SDCC...

So Wedge is apparently out in stores now, according to JTA, but they did not mention which store so I have no idea where to start hunting this. Has anyone on the West Coast seen it yet? He's already on eBay too, for a ridiculously inflated premium.

I'm buying every one of this dude that I see!

Ok, so last night is a lot more like what I expected to see from the Heat/Bulls series.

Who thawed out Haslem from his Cryo-Chamber before last night's game? Dude was a force!

That was quite an impressive display from Dirk last night. I haven't watched much of the Mavs this year, because it's hard to shake that feeling that they're going to fall apart inevitably, but this team could go all the way. LOT of veteran leadership and savvy.

Seemed to work out ok letting Durant go wild and focus instead on shutting down Westbrook. If they can keep that up they will be in good shape.

If the Heat lose again tonight I think they are done.
