Meh, Miami wins that series whether Rondo is healthy or not, so I don't think that had a major impact on the ultimate outcome. They didn't lose because of their play at the point.

Looking forward to the Bulls/Heat matchup...Chitown pwned them in the regs season, but it's a new deal now.

Home Ice means nothing in hockey, IMO. It provides the least advantage of any professional sport. The Sharks certainly didn't get the benefit of any "home town ref" calls...seemed like every time I turned around they were handing the Wings another Power Play.

Thornton was a monster and Niemi just keeps standing on his head out there, incredible.

I have to go Sharks/Lightning for the final. That would at least salve a little of the wounds over the CAPS choking again.

Picked up a carded Jord Dusat for a good price today. I actually had bought one a few weeks ago but the SOB backed out of the auction and returned my money. I ended up getting a mintier one for five bucks cheaper, good karma for sure.

I dont get the whole Superman appeal, I like my super heroes with a more gritty internal flaw.

You pretty much just summarized why Marvel >>> DC Comics from the 60's-80's. Agree 100%.

Awesome picture, Greg! Mine arrived last night and I am incredibly impressed. I had no idea the thing was so massive, this will definitely be the centerpiece of my non-SW display. I didn't even realize there were electronic features - very cool.

The only thing I was slightly disappointed in was the size and lack of detail on the parasites, which I guess makes sense since they are supposed to be done somewhat to scale.

Everything else about this is so awesome though it has instantly become one of my favorite toys. Well worth the wait!

I've never even heard of that thing, but it's a fascinating read. The Stretch Armstrong dude I want is the Green villain guy that sort of resembles the Abomination. Those are next to impossible to find on eBay too. I had him as a kid but it was lost over time.

I don't like that Pawn Stars show because I feel like the employees are always just out to screw people. They constantly try to lowball customers and then gloat about it afterwards.

I much prefer STORAGE WARS. I'll never forget the episode where that young gun dude cracked open box after box of super rare 70's and 80's action figures, including a carded Amanaman to drool over. As soon as I saw that I thought, damn that's what I want to do for a living!

Great start to the weekend...returned my HTS Gunship to Target for a ful cash refund, promptly drove over to TRU and picked up another full set of TCW Wave 3 for openers, fresh off the truck. I am officially done with this wave!

Gotta love closing out an entire wave, MOC and openers, in just over 24 hours with only a minimum of hassle and driving. I even picked up the latest set cheaper as I had a $5 off coupon that was just valid starting today.

I think this is a cool idea too, but at some point I think you are going to be stuck looking at some hefty prices, card condition notwithstanding. I mean, even Yakface on a crappy card is going to command a premium.

I am doing more or less the same thing with the DROIDS line right now and am facing the same eventuality. There is no way around getting gouged for a carded Fett or Sise Fromm, unfortunately.

I look forward to hearing more on your progress!

Saw this Wave restocked at TRU this morning, but was not sure what to look for in regards to the stormtrooper helmet. Couldn't tell which Skiff Guard neck it was either.

Picked up Eeth Koth, Comm. Colt, Barriss Offee, and the Riot Control Clone Trooper this morning at TRU for $8.99 each. They only had one of each, but there may have been more and someone beat me to them. Kind of doubt that though, this store restocks on Thursdays and I got there only an hour after opening.

They also had all of TVC Wave 6 but I am all set there.

All the cards on the new figures were decent, so I am good to go on the MOC side. I'd still like at least an opener of Barriss though because she's just that damn good.

Oh, also picked up a mintier boxed Droid Gunship last night at Target to replace my slightly dinged one from HTS.


I found them all this morning at a TRU as well, but at $9 a pop, I wish I had found them at Target instead.  :-\

It's a great wave but Barriss is easily my favorite. I may pass getting openers of the others but definitely not her. The outstanding likeness more than makes up for any articulation concerns, IMO.

No sign of Commander Jet in the case assortment either. Not that I expected him, but it would be cool if they snuck him in somehow in the next wave or two.

My wife would call Social Services on me if I tried to show those movies to my kids, and they are 3 and 5.

Maybe when they are 8 we would consider it.

RIP Jackie Cooper, from Little Rascals to Superman. Quite a career...
