I hate cars in the early morning.  I get up every morning at 5 to go for a two mile walk and I swear that there's stalkers/killers/weirdos in every car.

Why do you have to call me out like that, Mike?? Kidding.

Um, slow drivers in the passing lane for me...
and people who assume I watch NASCAR because I'm a race fan.  ::) They wouldn't understand the term Formula One, ChampCar or Indycar...

Wow, no comments about last night's game? 

After the first couple plays (the return for the TD and Florida's first TD) I thought 'Great! This might be a good offensive game). Only after seeing UF exploit the weakness in their zone defense time after time I knew it wasn't going to be pretty. Once UF was up 27 I shut it off. This wasn't even worthy of being called a championship game. The top Big 10 teams were overrated.

2. Hermi Odle (these two are promenantly featured and should be done already)
3. Skiff Master Weequay
4. Barge Weequay
5. Taym Dren-garen (blasted Luke's prosthetic hand, big yes for reenacting the scene)
6. Vedain (scraps with Lando before meeting his fate with the Sarlacc)
7. Sergeant Doallyn (looks cool)
8. Fozec
9. Bane Malar

Hoth and Tatooine were great all-around. The other waves had some a couple great figures as well.

Here we are:
Elis Helrot

Actually, that's a great pic, Daigo-bah, since it actually has Miyoom Onith in the background!  ;D

Sounds like a good wave. Anyone want to provide pics of Miyoon and Elis? I have no idea who they are.

Check out this thread (Who's Left From the Cantina) that Scott started a while back. That'll show both Elis and Miyoon, plus a bunch of the other background creatures.

Interesting wave!! Hasbro's done a good job so far on figure selection. Love that they're bring out 2 more cantina patrons, the LIN droid, Academy Biggs, and removeable helmet Stormie.

I missed the first season and Boxy wasn't in the recap bring you up to speed episode (that I noticed) - what was the deal with Boxy?

Boxie (sp?) was in the mini-series and a couple of the first episodes of the first season (you missed out on some good shows so I recommend either buying them or find them at your local video store or library). Suddenly he wasn't on the show anymore. I figured he would play predominantly in the show, just a recurring character. But three seasons later, no show.

I was wondering about Boxy as well. It's a great question to ask the writers at some type of Q&A. I have a feeling that there was a lot of negative cyberchat and the producers responded in kind. But, I will admit that I wasn't too disgusted with the idea of the character and would have liked to see how it panned out.

That's what I'm kind of thinking... perhaps he didn't agree well with a dark series and a mechanical dog (Muffit, sp?). Maybe he would have been the Jar Jar/Ewok of the show. Maybe fans didn't like having a kid on the show like some despised Wesley Crusher. I don't know. *shrugs* Maybe he's one of the 5 unknown Cylons *kidding!!!*

Yes, thanks for the refresher. I've either missed some things in the ten minutes I missed on Ep. 9 or I've had sensory overload (went through Season 2.5 in 2 days) while Season 3 was airing... Thankfully I'm all caught up now.

So for the cliffhanger, we've got Starbuck down and Anders wanting to go after her despite Sam's knowledge of her fooling around on him with Lee and numerous others. From the preview of the next episode, D goes to rescue her. Sharon and Helo know Hera's alive... how will that play out? Hera's sick, can Baltar save her? Too many questions and a few weeks to wait!!

Another interesting thing is: what ever happened to Boxey?? He was in the first few episodes and then disappeared... no explanation. I'll admit I'm glad his not around, but they kind of played his character to tag along with Sharon.

But how did the Cylons find the algae planet, random luck?

That really wasn't answered in the episode. I think someone (Gaeta) was mentioning "fate" being that the Colonials and  Cylons met at one of the sacred places with the system's star about to go nova on them. But I would hope there would be a more fitting answer than coincidence... the galaxy is quite large for that though I've had certain instances of meeting someone I knew thousands of miles from where both of us live. Anyway, I degress.

A plausible answer to the Cylons arriving for the algae planet would be the same reason as the Colonials. Food. Baltar needs something to eat.

Another thing that I can see is more planet-stops along the way. Not just for food and water, but to find more clues for the path to Earth. They got the Arrow at Kobol, now the Eye at the Algae planet...

In the episode 2 weeks ago, the "pilot" of the Cylon basestar (I forget what they call them) tells Baltar where to go in that wierd code language. He basically figures out that its a planet inside a star cluster...and we all remember that's exactly where the humans were going (per Sharon's suggestion, coincidence?).

Thanks Lando for the clarification on how the Cylons knew. I missed part of that episode, so maybe that was it.

Can someone explain to me again why the cylons didn't just wipe the humans out? Does Baltar really have that kind of pull, or was there a bit of information I missed?

As for why they didn't take out the colonial fleet in the episode... the Cylons knew the humans were on the planet and found the temple with the Eye of Jupiter that shows the way to Earth. The Cylons also want this as well therefore wanted to bargain with Adama for the Eye. After realizing they didn't have it, the Cylons (more D'Anna) went about a different tactic to get the Eye... and Adama stated he'd nuke the planet before letting them have it. That's a rough review... there's more to it than that.

As for Baltar, the Cylons kind of revere him. Maybe for his part in the Cylon takeover... maybe for his intellect... Baltar seems to understand things they don't - like when that Basestar Cylon (that are like the psychics from Minority Report) started babbling he understood the riddle.

30th Anniversary Collection / 30th Anniversary Collection = Delayed
« on: December 15, 2006, 03:51 PM »
Hasbro sent along a little 30th Anniversary Collection Update as part of this week's Q&A:

Quote
Due to unavoidable production delays, the first waves of Star Wars 30th Anniversary basic figures for 2007 will be delayed until March. We are looking at every way to get the figures in earlier, but fans should not expect to find them on shelf on 1/1 as we were hoping. We expect subsequent waves beyond the first to be on schedule shortly thereafter. We'll keep everyone updated as needed, but please be patient. Thanks!


Looks like we'll be seeing the Final 22 repack waves for a while...  :-\

This is quite a disappointment since I've really been looking forward to the 30th Anniversary waves. I guess the positive side is that the pocket book will not be taking a hit right away.
