I said somewhere that most leagues I have ever been in, set the draft order based on the last year.  Last place gets first pick and snake from there...I'd be fine with that...although I have never had a problem with random.

I haven't had to do this for a while but I used a simple sound test for a lot of weapons.  Drop a known original and the supposed repro on a hard surface (like a table or countertop)

The sound the two make were usually completely different since they were typically different plastics.

5 POA, looks nice though...I'm really interested in what this show may be.  I really enjoyed CW and look forward to a weekly fix of SW again.

Both...but this Target didn't have anything but Caps and the Winter Soldier left or there is another case pack.

The Legends were 2x each of the Caps...must have missed the rest

Happy Festivus Matt and to everyone else out there...just looking through this thread, remember when you died?  Yeah, me either :-[

If my friend were still alive.  He would have had a healthy bump of this thread.  Since he's dead, I'm going to bump it in his memory

Happy Festivus Everyone, especially you, Matty Burchall.  I Love You and Miss You :'(

Caught an IMAX show tonight...can't say enough good things. I really hope the rumors of Benedict Cumberbatch lobbying to be in EpVII are true...he brought Smaug to life and just oozed evil.  After a little bit of a rough start Desolation brings back the Middle Earth year can't come soon enough

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Amazon Droid Factory Multi-Pack

I got one for $14.99 about a half hour ago...I'd suggest you keep checking

I really liked the book, and I generally hate EU books.  Nick is right, it is shocking how far into the movies Plagueis is alive is worth a read if you can find it cheap.

The one arguement against that Nick though is that even within a catagory as broad as "Action Figures" Star Wars isn't even selling that well. 

I know Episode VII is going to be ga ga gangbusters and will have the full spate of product we expect but I agree with you, it isn't going to be the SAME product we expect.  Video game/Interactive model is the now and it is going to happen. 

I also want to reemphasize the point that part of the reason for the decline is lack of media.  TMNT is buoyed by a cartoon, SW has nothing but us, 30-50 year old men with disposable income.  That isn't exactly Hasbro's niche...they want to be more in the Turtle world unfortunately (for us)

I just saw you can break it down further to just Action Figures:

Top 100 ActioN Figures

I see
#70 6" Sandtrooper
#85 6" R2-D2
#86 4" Darth Vader
#94 6" Darth Maul

Pretty sad :-[

Check out the Top 100 Toys selling right now on Amazon...

Top 100 Action Figures and Playsets

#21 SW Angry Birds Telepods
#49 SW Angry Birds Telepods
#58 SW Angry Birds
#63 Darth Vader Voice Helmet
#80 Darth Tater

Yesterday when I looked 6" Sandy was like #98, but isn't on the list today.  To me that is NOT a good sign as to the health of the line in general.  That said, look at how few action figures outside of TMNT is on that list...I think our beloved action figures are not in favor at all right now.
