Yeah, that is a good point Scott....the West powers really seem to keep their teams together for the most part, just interchanging some of the supporting cast or players usually.  Of course, there are always some changes (Wolves adding Cassell/Spree, Lakers adding Malone/Payton, Kings adding Miller, and Spurs adding Nesterovic/Hedo/Horry), but the stars are pretty much always in place, and they build around them.

Also, just saw that news this morning about the Sheed trade.  Nice to hear something go down finally, although I'm not sure why Atlanta did that.  I can only assume that they would let Sheed and Person walk right away this summer, and have some cap room because of it.  Portland should be able to continue to "improve their image" with the additions of these guys though.  Plus, Abdur-Rahim is a pretty good player...although most don't know much about him since he has always played on crappy teams.

On one other note, I have to say now that I think I'm "jumping on" the Timberwolves bandwagon.  Although it will probably look like I'm just being the fair-weather fan...I don't really mean to be.  I haven't had a "team" since the old-days Bulls (and to some extent the Wizards...only because of MJ), and I just can't handle what they have done to that team.  I've always been a big KG fan, and the Timberwolves are the closest NBA team to where we live, so I thought I'd go local too.  More coverage of them around here than other teams too.  I still enjoy watching several other teams as well (Cavs, Nuggets, Kings, Mavericks, Bucks), and I know I can't claim the T-wolves as well as Minnesotans.  It is easier for you people actually living in a state that has professional teams, we just have to pick one around here :P.

Wow, that Bossk is really amazing.  I wasn't sure what to expect, but I really like what they have done with this one.  I have just been collecting the OT-based figures from this line (apart from Yoda and Jango), and I will definitely add Bossk to my collection if I can find him.  Much cooler than I even thought it could be.

I found a single Wave 2 figure this past weekend (Dooku), and he was on a pretty bent up card.  I bought it anyways, because I don't care about card condition too much, since I'm an opener.  Otherwise, I haven't seen any of Wave 2 yet, but they must have been there at one point.  I think there was like 2 each of Anakin, Obi, Mace, and maybe 3 of Assaj on the pegs as well.

Happy Birthday! I hope you have a great day, God bless.

I know I'm a little late to the game here, but I just came across this thread (and pics) today.  I just had to post to say what incredible work you do Muftak.  I am just astounded by each and ever level you have put together.  That is a tremendous diorama, and I can't believe how great everything looks.  Tremendous work!

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Yavin Wave

Yeah, it has been a great year for collecting so far.  All the figures have been done very well, Hasbro is doing many of the ones various fans have been asking for, and they are being found at an unusually fast pace (at least by some).  Just when I thought I was caught up for the most part, the Jabba's Palace wave, Ultra Wave 2, and now the Yavin wave all get spotted within a week or so.

Yeah, I agree Scott, I really can't fault any of those choices...all are great players.  There are always going to be some that could have been on, but not enough spots.  I was especially happy to see both Redd and Cassell make their respective teams.  Very deserving players.  Some are surprised at the inclusion of Ray Allen, since he has been hurt much of the year.....but he is definitely one of the best players in the league, and has played well when he has played.

All-Star Reserves announced today, the list isn't too bad, but the usual list of snubs as well.  I was really hoping that LeBron James would get voted on as a reserve, I thought he deserved it (20/6/6), but there's a lot of other great players out there too.  Anyways, here's the link:

All Star Reserves

Basically it runs down like this:

East Reserves:
Paul Pierce
Michael Redd
Jason Kidd
Baron Davis
Jamaal Magloire
Ron Artest
Kenyon Martin

West Reserves:

Shaquille O'Neal
Sam Cassell
Dirk Nowitzki
Peja Stojakovic
Brad Miller
Andrei Kirilenko
Ray Allen

Vintage Kenner / Memories....
« on: February 3, 2004, 12:40 PM »
I took a moment during some down time at work this morning to just browse through some pics/info over at ToysRGus of the vintage line (specifically vehicles/playsets).  Although I collect both modern and vintage (when I can), the nostalgia/magic of the vintage line is really unbeatable.  Just looking at some of these pics bring back some great memories of things I had, or things I really wanted to have.  Some of the descriptions provided even give the prices in Sears catalogs...I wish things were still priced this way.  Examples, Ewok Village - $19.99, Millennium Falcon - $24.77.  Even if most of the sculpting/articulation in the modern line could be considered superior, the vintage line still has a pretty "cool" feel.  Anyways, I guess I don't have much to add other than this link (although I'm sure all of you have been there done that)....and I was just feeling nostalgic and had to share with someone  :P.

Plus, just looking at this really makes me want to pursue some more vintage stuff soon :).

Sorry to hear about all of that Scott, glad you are on the mend now.  I hope that you are feeling better and better each day.  Take care and God bless.
