Love college football, glad SEC gave thumbs down to Texas A&M for now, at least. I prefer the traditional conference alignments. Clemson needs to stick with the ACC for sure too. Flroida State I don't care so much about either way.

I'm still hunting for the Y-WIng mini-rig. It's cool looking and I'm going to remove the engines from it to make it a little more believable as a little speeder thing. I'm really amazed the price errors haven't been found yet.
Not sure where to put this, but, I found 2-packs of battlepacks at Costco today for $25 tonight. Mostly Clone Wars packs. Worth taking a look!
I really don't want to succumb to douchebaggery, but I have to tell you how successful a particularly frowned upon technique was. I call it the "Secondary Distribution System" , and it works wonders at Target. Reading about others who have had success, I decided to try it out. One of my local Targets has had the same figures for who knows how long, with no wave 5, 6 or 7 showing up at all. I went ahead and bought 10 of the oldest figures (primarily Dengars and 4-LOMs), and returned them to a Target well out of the way while on a mini vacation (now I know there's no real way to be sure you're not screwing another collector at that store you're dumping figures to, but I made SURE there was no one posting here or at RS that are anywhere near that particular location- I'm in southeast Louisiana). Sure enough, 3 or 4 days later, my store gets in a wave 7 case (which is bought up by me and others), followed by a steady stream of wave 7 cases by need. I got some more figures there again today. Moral of the story is that two stagnant stores have been reduced to one. We're talking no SW figure sales for MONTHS at both stores, and now, one of those stores has a steady stream of sales. It works. I don't want to resort to that, but distribution has never been worse, and perhaps Hasbro's figure selection and case breakdown is even a greater culprit. So, I don't want to condone this (and I don't think I'll have to do it again) but it works.
People that drive with their left arm hanging outside of their vehicle. I guess it's better then their leg hanging out, but ya...I've come to accept texting and talking on the phone as the norm so for some reason that's ok...not safe, but ok.
I just want the Human guy, so YES very interested in that. I am going to end up with at least 3 of the guy, so you could have a platoon easily. Somebody is going to have to call dibs on the Day-Glo Rasberry Icee Female Jedi.
This obviously means nothing to those who open these, but I hate that they are just 3 figs next to each other. As someone who keeps everything in the package my favorite thing about BPs was it was like I opened some figs and set up a scene w/o actually opening them up. Makes it harder for me to bite on these.
