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.

I was just squinting at the fine print on the back of the box that lists all the features, and am I correct in seeing the words "optional Rogue Squadron markings included" pointing to a bunch of TIE fighter and 2 Death Star kill markings?  That's pretty cool!

That's really cool. Just the Death Star kills may sell it to me now.

Wedge should only need 1 Death Star kill sticker, even a half one at that (unless Wedge destroyed a third DS in EU that I'm unaware of). But, it is cool that they are offering those Rogue Squadron kill marks.

Would this by chance be targetted at the Pawtucket RI area?  That way when anyone who works at Hasbro goes into a local WM they would find 60,000 Yarnas.

That would be hilarious!  That might just be worth a road trip this Summer...

I'd be game, Justin, if you need someone to haul them into the store.  ;D (Oh, and you get on me about the quotes function  ;) )

I'll just note that you had to edit yours... ;)
Not for the quotes, though.  ;)

If I was making $25 million a year and I know I have to get tested for certain drugs I would make sure my doctors get the list of banned stuff I should[n't] (sic) have.  Since he didn't it will cost him $8 million plus if would to test postive two more  again he is banned for life. 

Corrected. I agree he's an idiot. Just about a half year ago, a few football players were suspended for supposedly not knowing they were taking dietary drugs that had banned substances in them. You think every professional player in every sport would have known to consult the list before taking anything now.

Of course that leaves us with Yarna's out the ying yang. 

We have means of taking care of our Yarnas here in Minnesota.  ;)

Hell, how does he recognize her at all without the photo?  I forget if that was a plot point... him knowing what she looked like.  The Terminators sure didn't.

I believe it was a plot point, Bill, so that when John sent Kyle back, as you suggest, he'd know who she was (unlike Arnold going around and killing all the Sarah Connors).

I really should pop that movie in before Salvation comes out. It's been a while.

I've still not found one...  Nor have I found Wave 6.  I'm getting very frustrated given the coolness of both.  Enjoy your packs you bastards!   >:(

I've got my pack and picked up most of Wave 6 yesterday! Ahh, so nice. And, yes, I am a bastard.  ;) You'll get them soon... I found a helpful Redshirt, otherwise I'd still be out of luck with Wave 6 figures.

Maybe they'll release a carded version of Warok later?
