Welcome madmartigan, looks like we should open a Just Found section for Edmonton collectors only :p

Hey Diddley Squat, thanks for checking us out, you may remember me from such forums as Rebelscum and GH as OCB.  Welcome again and enjoy your stay!

Saga '02-'04 / Re:New 2003 list...???

This seems almost identical to a lot of stuff rolling around in the rumor mill of the past few months.  I see the Sandcrawler is still there and the 12" Rebo Band both of which I have high hopes for...crossing fingers :)

Well my Credit Card was charged today!  Finally, it will soon be mine :)  I'm glad I didn't spend the ching on a vintage one last year

I am happy they are releasing it again...I have two I think maybe one, and I found them at the great KB Clearances in late '00 I think.  Nice vehicle...were they in Episode 2 at all?  I don't think they were which makes little sense

Yep, I've seen them at Wal MArt too, Jango, Mace, Anakin and Vader.  I'm passing and wondering why they decided to release these at all???

Hey Brent, thanks for stopping on by!   I'll stick with you on the Lakers sucking, they are the suckiest suckers that have ever sucked.  But I cannot pledge allegiance to the Celts either, my boys the T-Pups seemed to have turned it up a notch and are pushing for home court in the first round.  Maybe then we will make it to Round #2

BTW...Moe's is still available, sweet, sweet Duff, how good would Casual Homer look in that playset???  ;D

« on: February 3, 2003, 11:58 AM »
My thoughts and prayers are with the Columbia astronauts, families and people who work for NASA.   I never thought we would see two Space Shuttles gone.  I was home sick the day the Challanger blew up (probably the sickest I have ever been to boot) and so I had tons of feverish nightmares that week.  I along with a lot of other kids in the 80's dreamed of being an astronaut, SW was a big part of that dream.  

In one of Carl Sagan's books he predicted doom for the shuttle program if another one was destroyed.  Space exploration funding is seen as unneccesary (witness the ISS being 20+ years behind schedule due to budget cuts in its program).  Risking astronaut lives is deemed to risky and many of the missions could be performed by unmanned craft (see many of the recent Mars successes and failures) for far cheaper costs.  Plus public reaction to this disaster may mean even less risk wanted to be taken in tax money.

BTW AE, have you ever been to the rocket museum in Huntsville?  I alwys have wanted to go (I fly in to Huntsville when I go to Alabama) but never have gotten the chance

I've been wondering the same thing Matt :)  Every figure should be top notch I'm all for quality of quantity, they need to slow down a bit stop the resculpts and make 'em all perfect :p

Just check the main page for all the gory $10 details!!!  I saw one last week, passed becuase I was in the middle of packing, I already have one and my wife would kill me...good luck to those still looking though.  They are out there.  I would guess the UPC is the same as last time so some Wal-Marts had them on Clearance last summer and haven't updated the computers yet

Saga '02-'04 / Time to Wake Up Hasbro!!!
« on: January 28, 2003, 12:03 PM »

MichaelMWC's site held a Fan Choice type of poll in which readers voted on best and worst of 2002 Toy Lines...Hasbro and Star Wars was well represented in Worst of Catagory...

Bad Articulation, Bad Sculpting, Bad Packaging...

I wonder why this is?  What makes people so ticked off, well lets look at the winners...the Muppets, ToyBiz (LOTR and Marvel Legends) MOTU and The Simpsons all had many of the Best of Votes.  All of these have superior sculpting and character likeness and most have uber articulation...

They also cost more, which then begs the question is the decrease in price point a result of this. Would you pay $1-$2 more to get figures like Ephant Mon in every figure?  Is the 3 3/4" scale not able to be better articulated and have a better likeness than the larger 5" and 6" figures?
