The C3 exclusive wasn't a gold was the Dark Chrome ROTS Obi-Wan saber.

Sith Lord Chaos managed to pick me up one when he was there, it's a sweet looking saber.

Gamespot has a preview of the game, including some videos.  Some of the levels look the same (Geonosis, Yavin, Jabba's Palace), but you also get a look at Courscant and an updated Kashyyk.

Check it out here.

Metallica - Master of Puppets.

Dare I say, the best in the Metallica catalogue.

I am on a permanent boycott of Metallica.  I refuse to listen to a band that would sue their own fans!  >:(

The ISS has always relied on the Shuttle for orbit correction.  The Shuttle can use its engines to correct the orbit much better than the ones on the station itself.

I just finished a course for my Master's Degree dealing with Aircraft and Spacecraft design and we spent a lot of time discussing the Shuttle and the ISS.  The Shuttle's engines are truly amazing and they were a huge challenge when they were designing the shuttle.  Not only for the thrust/power requirements, but they are also the first liquid propellent rocket engines that are reusable!

I remember the mission where the paint chip hit the shuttle's window and went about 3/4 inch into it.  It brought the issue of space-junk into light.  I think it happened in the late 80's (maybe early 90's) to Columbia if I recall correctly.

I doubt that's much to worry about.  It's nowhere near any of the leading edges and will not feel a fraction of the friction.

Funny stuff.  There were a few sites about the Lord of the Rings trilogy that did the same thing.

It's just hilarious to see how things can be translated like that.

I swear you can hear the thumps from Houston from all the knees jerking.

Yep, that's it!  Great game with some good humor and puzzle solving.  There was also a series of Space Quest games that were fun.

Great news not just that they're going to do expanded universe figures, but that we get to be involved!

I'd like a 12" Grand Admiral Thrawn or a Noghri.  What would you like to see?

My nephew really enjoyed the wiggles when he was about 1.  Then he liked the teletubbies, and then Bob the Builder and Thomas the Tank Engine.

I got him into Spider-Man and Star Wars.  ;D

Cool stuff.  I especially like the Steins.  I have the SE Stein, but didn't know about any others made.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Wal-Mart "Early Bird" Exclusive

Who knows.  Possible though since these figures are definitely a modern version of the original EB set.

Should be pretty cool....can't wait for mine to show up.

Sirius Black's Brother?

I doubt it...Sirius' brother is dead and I'm willing to bet that R.A.B. is still alive.

I was agreeing with you in a round about way.  I don't see why people would want more than one in their collection.
