Anyways, nice to get some more information on Hasbro's thinking - and hopefully some other nice bits of info along the way (new DSE Han Solo from Han's Hideout Q and A)

I have to ask - after all this time.  Does anybody even know that Jeff was behind Han's Hideout?

At least the Minnesohta contingent...

How about redesigning the photo archives?  Group items up under the lines they were in, etc.

Just a thought...right now it's the only reason I might go over to RS from time to time.

Or partnering with some other site that already has really good photo archives... ;)


I'm guessing Justin means Yak.  ;) Jay does a good job with photos there.

I think some of us were telling Jesse about our immigration policy for Yarna, Breha and some others that warm pegs. Buy up a lot of them and return them to some unfavorable store (say Wloo and CF WM and return them to Indy). That'll free up your pegs and you'll get new cases sooner than you expect.

It's a lot of work on your part, but it gets things moving.

Congrats to Jeff and Paul! Thanks for all you've done, Chris!

Went out of town today to Cedar Rapids, much bigger than my village in Iowa and discovered the same exact thing - cases upon cases 6 easy of wave 5.  Good grief.

I've never found CR to be any better than the Waterloo/Cedar Falls area in my time there.

Agreed.  It's almost like hoping they don't **** up a live action Smurfs movie.

Some friends and I joked about that once... and casting.

While we've got our spottings of Wave 6 (I've got all (unopened) but the Hoth Trooper and I'm waiting for the skirt version), I'm now waiting on the correct U-3PO variant to buy and return the others. I don't know how long that will take to clear through the Wave 5 and first Wave 6 cases before I can get them.

It will cost them sales, no doubt. I was very willing to give someone $13 for Soundwave, but nobody had the balls to sell it to me, since they're afraid that Hasbro would, well, I don't know exactly. It's not like Hasbro really has any pull here. If anything, I'd imagine that Hasbro would be at the mercy of the retailers, and if they want to sell something, they paid for it, so they have the right.

I worked at a TRU around the time RotS came out and we had to separate the street dated RotS stuff from the others (to avoid leaking product). Stores are actually under Hasbro's pull here because if a store is found to have leaked stuff (and the SW stuff was held back due to LFL as well), a 'hefty' fine is levied on said store and possible 'rights' to carry future street-dated product could be pulled, plus having the ire of district managers and corporate on your back for losing that amount of cash for selling the stuff.

That being said, I believe if a store does have the merchandise on the shelves and pegs, they are obliged to sell it (isn't there even a law regarding this?). There are no signs posted saying 'look but you can't buy'. It's only until you get to the register that it stops you from buying it, so I think it's rather unfair to the customer to get excited, grab something to purchase only to be denied.

24 may have jumped the shark. My wife and I discussed not watching it anymore.

I'm upset with last night's episode. Here we were having a good season and the writers go and put Kim in another damsel in distress situation like every other season she's been in. I thought for once her role would be the dutiful daughter who turns around and tells Dad that she's going to save his life for once. But, no. She's been held 'captive' to persuade Jack to help the terrorists. Ugh! Now I only hope she is finally killed off so that there is no way this can happen again.
