Yep, they don't allow that here in VA either.

And the computers aren't even hooked up to printers to begin with.

I just don't see why they have to act like the CIA and's just a frigging coupon. God forbid someone should figure out a way to get more than one.  ::)

2927's really not that easy.

This is another one of those PITA promotions that requires you to install malicious third party software er, a "printer installation" packet just to print out the stupid thing.

If, like me, you are one of the many people in America who hold a steady office job, you are pretty much screwed because if your company is even halfway on the ball they will have pop-up blockers, firewalls, etc which will completely prohibit you from being able to print the coupon at all.

I would have tried it from home but I don't have a printer hooked up right now. So thanks for nothing, Hasbro.  :(

What a tool.

This quote will forever be ingrained in my memory:

“Why would I make any more,” Lucas says of the “Star Wars” movies, “when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?”

The guy just does not get it. People don't care about whether you make MORE, they just want you to stop screwing with the ones that were already released.

This whole excuse of tinkering as a way of asserting final editorial control is ridiculous. I'm fairly certain he had final say over EVERYTHING in the Prequels but that doesn't stop him from tweaking those over and over again.

He seems pretty interested in that live action show. Not.

I get the appeal, but somehow the prospect of futuristic sci-fi without aliens always seemed like a bore to me. They don't even have anthropomorphic robots!  ;D

Anything that gave us Summer Glau is ok with me though.

I still want those missing custom prototype Ewoks figures.

By the way, what do you think a casting of Droid's Gaff would go for?

I have seen a few Gaffs pop up over the past year, but none of them appear to have been cast from the original molds. They look pretty half-assed to me. Most are less than $30.

I've never seen an actual Ewoks/Droids prototype come up for auction, other than the coins.

Wow, that was not terrible, but it was pretty weak. The show really suffers from sub-par writing and a lack of the LOST gravitas. I'm actually surprised it was not better than that. The whole thing just seemed very superficial, for lack of a better word.

I'm hoping the show finds its legs soon, I'm not really feeling it at this point.

Poor Parminder Nagra, perpetually typecast as the Indian doctor. Jorge holds his own but is unconvincing as an academic. Sam Neill is money as always.

Which brings us to the lead chick. (I guess Emilie de Ravin was busy?) Her character needs a little more depth, IMO, but there is no denying she has oodles of sex appeal. Kind of liking her.

FWIW, I hope there turns out to be more to the show than at first glance. I did catch that the Warden's name (Kelvin - another LOST nod) was the same name on the fish market during the last maybe there are some clues that will help keep things interesting.

You'd think a task force that can afford to maintain a super-secret ultra high security prison in the middle of the woods could afford a strike team too, but yet it's the lead detective and her boss that run up to corner the guy on the roof? That's what I'm talking about with the writing.

Geez, where's the thread for American Horror Story or Terra Nova?  ;)

JK, I am definitely in...outside of Alias I'm a fan of everything he's done. Lost pretty much closed the book on awesome TV. Hoping this new show is not as dense, have mostly stayed away from spoilers to this point.

Gotta love Hurley.

I saw the Preview at the movies this weekend...looks ok, lots of lightsabers coming at your face and ship debris, etc.

The whole thing is just a silly gimmick.

Glad I wasted barely any time watching the games this weekend, every time I was rooting for lost.  >:(

Football in general has just been so unappealing this year. I really think this will be the first year in a decade or so I don't even watch the Super Bowl.

Not bad, a little underwhelming with the Bo Katan and all, but whateves. I liked the soda can droid and the proto-landspeeder. Those droids reminded me of the creepy toys next door from Toy Story.

Oh, I liked the Brainiac Ambassador dude too.

Bring on the bounty hunters!

Is tonight the one with Katee Sackhoff?

I cannot wait to see her debut...and dream about what a cool figure she would have made if Hasbro wasn't intent on driving this line into the ground.

I have no interest at all in ever seeing the Maul episodes(s)...there is suspension of disbelief and then there is just plain insulting stupidity.

Not even my six year old would buy that someone could be cut in half and dropped thousands of feet and still be alive. Try cracking open an anatomy textbook sometime, geniuses.

I love how noone ever uses this insane medical technology to actually rescue any good guys. They can stitch together Darth Maul good as new but they can't stop a woman from dying durig childbirth? Riiiight.

Meh, IMO the franchise could use a little "adultening". I would love to see a darker, more serious tone. I wouldn't worry about them going over the top, Lucas would never allow that. But I do think they can explore more themes, deeper characterizations, etc that don't lend themselves easily to action movies intended as family fare.

I think that sounds really cool actually, a good tool for introducing more backstory. Especially good for those of us who still want them to explain how everything got started. (I disagree that this is irrelevant to the story)

I didn't read the source for this, but it seems likely we will still see this episode at some point. Maybe it was already even shot and they are just working on re-ordering the episodes.

Like the Fringe Fall finale was originally supposed to be the kick-butt action packed episode airing tonight, but it got pushed back due to the World Series, so they went with something much less compelling.

I'm working on the major variants. There are at least 3 I am planning to knock out this year with a little luck - Orange Hair Luke, Double Telescoping Luke, and Vinyl Cape Jawa. Those will probably do it for my active collecting...I don't see being able to afford a true rocket firing Fett prototype or DT Vader or Kenobi, probably ever.

That's a great price.
