Revenge of the Sith / Re: Hasbro Direct Sales Website
« on: May 11, 2005, 09:34 PM »
I got an e-mail saying my order has shipped.  I read it and all the non-ROTS stuff I ordered shipped on 6 May and the three ROTS items I ordered are listed as "unavailable".

I don't think I'll even look at the Hasbro website anymore!  >:(

Interesting point AE, but I wouldn't consider it scalping.

To me, scalping is purchasing a rare or potentially rare collectable for the express purpose of selling it for a profit.  I don't care if you're doing it strictly for the money or to "fund your collecting habit".  To me, the latter argument is actually a worse category....you could always buy the "rare" item and trade it to fill holes in your collection.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Jedi After Episode 3?
« on: May 10, 2005, 09:51 PM »
It's entirely possible that there are more Jedi out there...but they've been scattered and don't really have a way to regroup after whatever happens in ROTS.

I just remember what Ben said in ANH, "Now the Jedi are all but extinct."  Which could mean that there's just Yoda, Obi-Wan, Luke and Leia.  Or depending on your point of view, there are others out there scattered throughout the Galaxy.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Spending too much $$$?
« on: May 10, 2005, 09:34 AM »
I've spent a bit of money, but since I'm not army building or even buying doubles to open one anymore, it hasn't been as bad as in the past.  Couple that with I'm making a LOT more money now compared to when Episode II came out.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Hasbro to Offer Direct Sales?
« on: May 6, 2005, 06:42 PM »
I ordered a few things on 2 May and they're also supposed to ship on 12 May.  I'm suprised it's going to take them 10 days to fill an order....don't they make the stuff?

I've seen this yoda at retail, but have not had the desire to purchase it.

I have the Yoda Furby from Episode 1 and thought that was a pretty cool toy though.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Rate your job satisfaction...
« on: May 5, 2005, 09:05 PM »
Overall, I like my job...but like any job it has it's moments.  I've been in the Air Force 12 years now...it's kind of nice to know that I could retire in less than 8 years if I chose to, but I'm thinking of sticking it out a little longer and retire with 25 years in...if I feel like I'm still making a difference and possibly retire as a Lt Col as opposed to Major if I get out at 20 years.

That being said, I was moved to a new squadron/weapon system and I feel like I'm completely starting over at this base.  I have just as much experience as the guy I've been crewed with, but sometimes I'm treated like I just fell off the turnip truck!  Although I like the people I work with, it's pretty clear that the squadron I was in previously was a much tighter group, and there are just some things that have been happening to me in my new squadron that would never have happened to me in my old squadron.  I can be pretty frustrating, but I try to look at it as an opportunity to bring my experience in and possibly change things for the better.

So...anyone ever had a job they liked and still thought about leaving? 

When I first enlisted in the Air Force, I worked in a high-tech electronics careerfield.  Since about 3 years ago when I got my commission and a job in Space & Missiles, not to mention a Top Secret Clearance, I've become even more marketable.  I have some friends who have gotten out of the Air Force, or have gotten comparable civilian jobs and make a lot more money than I have in the Air Force.  Those same friends have even tried to recruit me and have told me that their companies would hire me in a heartbeat.  I have to admit it's a good feeling, and the temptation is always there, but since I put so much time into the Air Force thus far, plus I'm doing important work and do enjoy it, that I'll at least stick it out 8 more years.

I heard that George Lucas cut her out of the movie once he found out about her being in Playboy.

I tried to find info on her character at the official site, but it's not there.

I don't know if these would work, but Parksabers makes a display stand for their sabers that holds the blade.

I don't know if the FX blade is detachable or not, but if so, they could be an option.

I usually don't use them, but I got one off of the official site.  It's of Anakin and Obi-Wan duelling....it's pretty cool looking.
