Kind of confusing the schedule of the playoffs.  Rangers/Flyers played game 5 yesterday, while Blackhawks/Blues played their sixth.  I know others had the same thing where they were a couple games ahead of another bracket.  My guess must be that certain teams' arena must be busy with concerts.

Of course, Montreal has been sitting idle for awhile.  Wonder if that'll mess with their playing.

Star Wars Universe / Re: Disney to Purge Select EU
« on: April 25, 2014, 05:36 PM »
Interesting that some fans are up in arms about this and claiming Disney raped my childhood.

Not sure what's "interesting" about it. I know you hate EU so you don't care, but some of us do care. So it shouldn't be a surprise. I know we've discussed this before and I won't make a production about it again. I am just glad they are not just pretending the books/games/comics/etc didn't happen by using their "Legends" title.

Nick, using 'hate' is a strong word and putting words in my mouth, which I don't appreciate.  My opinions on EU is that it is non-canon.  I read some, liked some, didn't care for most, so I quite reading it.  It's an opinion and it's different than yours.  It doesn't mean that my feelings on EU should take away from your enjoyment.  That being said...

my point is that there are a lot of EU fans out there basically using "Disney raped my childhood" like some claimed "Lucas raped my childhood 15-20 years ago.  It's interesting the parallel there.

Pretty even match-ups going on... except for the Canadiens sweeping Tampa.

What did you think of the electronics?

Chewie sounds like Pluto, Luke like Mickey, Stormie like Goofy, and Han like Donald.  :P

Man, just 2 episodes left in the season... that's rough.  I'm enjoying it thoroughly.  I keep forgetting that the characters don't know that Fury's still alive... Will be interesting to see what Maria Hill's purpose is next week

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 1

The Amazon page I have bookmarked currently shows $34.99 with free shipping.
Looks like these are sold out then, for a similar price with shipping included... It's weird because the store that was selling them had a specific price for shipping on items ($7.99 for under a pound, which the Stormtrooper is under that weight) and they almost doubled the shipping on the Stormie most likely due to the popularity of the figure.

Wish HTS and TRU.com would get their acts together though.

Yeah, I managed to score mine through TRU.com, found one in a TRU (with sloppy paint apps of colors that don't belong on the Stormtrooper) and left it.  I really wish the QC was better on these Hasbro-deemed 'collector focus figures'.  Otherwise, they're just eyesores.

As of 9:43 CST, amazon has the 6" Stormtrooper for $21.59.

EDIT: Nevermind.  I didn't see they're charging $13+ for shipping.

Wow, sounds like a lot of crap paint jobs on this guy.  I would think paint would be improving on these by now, especially given the collector nature of them.

You would think, right?  And how does yellow and red paint get on a white and black stormtrooper?

Found a fresh case of Wave 1 2014 at my local TRU. Had the Stormtrooper in my hands excited that the helmet was in better shape than the one I ordered online. Looked further down and it appears that this trooper had a little accident at the company picnic. On his right thigh was a mix of red and yellow splotch.... too much ketchup and mustard on the hot dog apparently. I put him back and left him. I didn't want to deal with cleaning up the guy.

Found a fresh case of these on the pegs at Target.  Nabbed the Plagueis... figure I could help out a local (and if they don't need him; a member).

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

So if Obi-Wan does have a kid and she is force sensitive, what's with the dialogue between Obi and Yoda in Empire basically stating Luke or another (Leia) are their only hope? 

Yeah, I can see that being a problem for some fans (and if it happens, we'll have to see how that works out)... But from a different angle, even if the kid is force-sensitive, perhaps Luke and Leia are the only hope for balancing the force.  They are Anakin's offspring so maybe the love of a father for his children and vice-versa (yeah, after maiming one and torturing the other) can win Vader over.

Even though I managed to track Boba down at Christmas I may spring for this whole case.

Let Jayson make a custom prototype Fett for you... complete with box.

Yeah, that was Tommen, but it was a new actor to play him.
