Watto's Junk Yard / Re: 'Lost' - Season Two

Its sort of been hinted at so far that Walt has something special about him, and maybe we'll start to see more of what that is. 

Yeah it's been more than hinted.  His mom's new boyfriend outright wanted Michael to take custody of him because "weird things happen when he's around."  He was reading a book about birds when all of the sudden one came screaming into the window and broke it's neck.  He's a freaky little kid.

Don't forget, he's also the reason the Polar Bear kept showing up.

Re: New Force,

It looks bad, but it's not really that bad.  Rick and the gang over there have made a conscious decision to hold off on a lot of the activity on full cases this year.  Being a smaller retailer, they realized that many of these figures would hit the big boys (TRU/Target/etc) before them, so they've held off.

They've said that in a movie year, it's hard for them to compete with the big boys because retail get product faster.  NewForce have put up a few of the "collector interest things" - Evolutions, BH 7-pack, Wedge, Clone Variant cases, etc.  They have even ordered a few things for me when I sent an e-mail, even though they weren't listed on the site.

They do a pretty good business with their retail stuff and then there is the "other" on-line stuff they sell - DCD, Diamond, Star Trek, etc.  I don't think they are in any financial trouble or anything, just decided to play it low key because of the movie year and the fact that orders go way down when stuff is rampantly available at retail.



Thanks for the info Jeff.  I dealt with Newforce quite a bit during the POTJ waves.  In my opinion, they are hands down the best internet store going!

Looks like the Sci Fi channel won't have all the episodes aired by this Friday when the movie premiers.  Guess I'm going to have to pick up the dvd set.

Not a big deal, since I planned on doing it anyway.

Hey Beth, could you order this through MR's 800 number?  Just a thought.

Also...where on the website will this saber go up for sale?  The LE section or somewhere else?

If I recall correctly, the writes of the show have debunked the "they're in Purgatory" idea.

This is the only topic I could find about the show.

Anyone catch the premier last night?

Again, I ended up standing up in front of my tv yelling, "What the ****?!!" at the end of the show.

I do like the head sculpt, but I keep the helmet on my RAH Vader all the time, so I don't see the need to get another one.

Star Wars Universe / Re: What actress could portray Mara Jade?

I'd go with Dina Meyer.

Corran,

She played the red-head in Starship Troopers among other roles.

I'd also go with Connie Nielsen.  She's been in several movies, like The Hunted, Devil's Advocate, One Hour Photo, Gladiator and much more!

Chewie,

Pleasantly suprised to see this chapter up so quick, and the plot is becoming more interesting with each one.  Keep it up!

I love a lot of the effects you put into it, the water effects, rotting clone, but I do think the Dooku head looked a bit odd.  The close-up he looks kind of ****-eyed, and the other shots where he's talking to Sora Bulq it just stands out and is a bit distracting...especially since he has such a neutral expression on his face and the actual figure has a good scuplt to it.

Great work though.....it's going to be a long month!   ;D

I don't own a gun.  I'm a really good shot with a pistol though and have been considering picking up a .45 or a 9 mm.

I do own a couple of swords though.  ;D

I'm on back-up on the 28th and as long as I'm not burned and have to go on alert that day, I should be home for this one.

 ;D
