Can't do it.  Have to draw the line somewhere. 

Amazon has a bunch of these for $5.18 at the moment - a steal if you have Prime.

Damn I bought these too soon... I wish they'd put wave 2 up for those prices.  I'm tempted to pick up Maul at $9.99, but I don't want to start doing PT on these... ugh.

Any worries anyone had about the quality level they're going for here should be entirely put to bed with Kathleen Kennedy, JJ Abrams, and Lawrence Kasdan in charge.

I was there yesterday... sorry, I didn't see this until now though.

So what's the problem exactly?  Is it that you can't call without paying a bunch of long-distance?

Because you can get Skype credit really inexpensively and call anywhere for a few cents a minute.

Sports Journalist Told To Write Some Slop About Baseball Healing Boston

BOSTON—Ahead of Wednesday’s potential World Series–clinching Game 6 matchup between the Red Sox and Cardinals, sources confirmed that Los Angeles Times sports editor Sam Poyet instructed journalist Ross Martinez to quickly throw together some slop about baseball helping the city of Boston heal from this year’s tragic marathon bombings. “Just **** out like six or seven hundred words’ worth of melodramatic sludge about how the whole city has been galvanized by their team and how baseball offers a way for Bostonians to slowly move on from tragedy,” said Poyet, adding that Martinez should definitely churn out a couple paragraphs of muck contrasting the overwhelming terror pervading Boston during the aftermath of the bombings to the especially emotional and impassioned atmosphere at Fenway Park this season. “Don’t forget to mention the ‘Boston Strong’ rallying cry, the club’s tributes to victims during each game, and how this is all about much more than just baseball. And, I don’t know, a little section about the players saying some heartwarming gunk about how much this means to the people of Boston. Then maybe round off the whole sentimental garbage heap with something about how no matter what, the day will never be forgotten. Oh, and something where you use the phrase ‘the wounded heart of a proud city.’ Just throw it all in the trough; they’ll eat it up.” Poyet added that the giant mound of histrionic, exploitative glop should probably start off with the sentence, “The morning of April 15, 2013 wasn’t much different from any other in downtown Boston.”


Red Sox Fan Dedicates Garbage Can He’s Lighting On Fire To Marathon Victims

BOSTON—Fifteen minutes after the Boston Red Sox defeated the St. Louis Cardinals to become World Series Champions, sources are now confirming that local man Bradley Ferrante, 26, is dedicating the trash can he’s lighting on fire to the victims of last April’s Boston Marathon bombings. “4/15, never forget!” said a visibly intoxicated Ferrante before throwing an entire book of lit matches into the trash bin, stumbling slightly before kicking it to the ground, removing his shirt, and screaming “Go Sox!” “Dynasty!” “Big Papi! We love you, Papi!” and “We’re the ******’ champs, baby! Boston Strong! Yankees suck! Woo!” At press time, Ferrante was hunched over on Boylston Street, vomiting roughly 800 yards from the marathon’s finish line.

How much was 3.75" Jabba w/Dais?  I forget now...  I'd say double that if it's a set like that?  Seems sort of likely.

I believe the Wal-Mart Jabba was $35-$40. If the dais is too expensive for this 6-inch release, a carbonite Han accessory along with Salacious mini-fig would suffice.

They did promise that both halves of the SDCC exclusive set would be available down the line... so re-releasing the Carbonite block with a Jabba makes a ton of sense.

That said, Jabba without the dais would be a huge mistake.

Frank Darabont was supposed to ghost write at one point...why couldn't George have retired before 2012? (Oh yeah, it was 2012 that made it happen.)

Darabont's Kingdom of the Crystal Skull script is online... it's worth a read.  It's all of the good stuff and none of the crap that made it into the final piece.

I'd take that bet.  Bench Rose, Davis, and Leonard and let's see if you finish anything other than dead last.

Let's just say, if you were to have many children, you'd have many birthday coupons sent to you...  like, say, every month.  :-X

And if I have no children, isn't it a little weird to be signing up for a club that gets kids a call and card from a giraffe on their birthday, just so a fully grown adult, can save $5 off $25 every now and then?

I can pretty much guarantee he's out.  We drafted last night.

You didn't hear about the expansion draft?  He gets to pick 3 players from your team, and everyone else gets to give him one player of their choice.

Got a note from my buddy Jim that he got me the set with the Yellow commander.  He saved the receipt, so I'll take it in and get the price adjusted using my $5 off $25 coupon and I think I have a $3 coupon too...  So $8 off, hopefully.  I have another $5 off $25 for the next one too, soooooo I should get $13 off total from both sets.  Not bad.

Where does one procure such a coupon, other than the counter at the post office?
