"And then there was this guy who gave me a can of spam!  I was going to chastize him, but he has more of a life compared to me."

The Game info section of the site says you'll be able to wield a lightsaber AND use force powers, so I guess you will get to be a Jedi.  I think this is a good idea since the Jedi are such a large part of the Star Wars universe, but I think it could also be a detriment to the game if EVERYONE on a particular server is playing as a Jedi.  Hopefully, the game developers have thought about this and have made ways for normal troops to compete against Jedi.

Another note is that they're improving the AI, probably the worst feature of the original.

Hey Jesse, did you see anything at C3 about the game?

Hey!  I work for the government and the only time I give non-commital type answers if if someone asks me something that's Top Secret!

I agree that Hasblo's answers were not what anyone really wanted to hear, and they're the same answers they always give.  Why are you guys suprised by some of these answers?

Did you really think they'd do figures like the Tonnika sisters when they're geared up for making mainly ROTS items?  I'm guessing they'd save something like this for a year or so from now when all the ROTS hype has died down.

They may not have plans for a baby luke and leia, but it took a while for them to finally make a Jedi Council set too.  Granted a few of those sets were pure crap, but the first two were pretty cool.

With the possible exception of the ARC-170, they haven't made any large vehicles as of yet for the ROTS line.  The AT-AT was a very popular item in both the Vintage and the POTF2 lines, I don't see why an AT-TE isn't completely out of the realm of possibility.

Have a little hope that they'll make some great stuff down the road, even if it isn't currently being made...of course I am a "glass is half-full" kind of guy.

We already have a movie accurate Holo came with an R2-D2 (complete with CommTech chip!)

Nice List Scott, I think the Dejarik pieces would be really tough though.  I know there was one (or two?) on the Dejarik Board that came with the Chewbacca, but I don't see Hasblo making anymore.

Cool shirt Shannon!

I'm kinda suprised that they don't think an AT-TE would sell.  The AT-AT's always been a popular item and they have made the gunner figure.  Why make that figure and NOT make the vehicle that goes with him?

I know we're also still waiting on a Cloud Car too.  ::)

Here in Colorado/Wyoming it's the Red Guards hands down.  The blue guards are a close second, but with a little hunting I could usually find one (since I already have one, I don't buy them).

Grievous is another hot seller, but still not impossible to find.

It took a while, but I managed to get two.  I purchased them just in case SLC wasn't able to get me one.

Have you seen some of auctions on ebay for this figure????  ONe guy's selling a whole case of them and the starting bid equates to &65 per figure!

I can't believe people got out of CIII with entire cases of these when others had to wait 5-9 hours for just one!

Was there something in the cryptic non-answers they were giving at the Q&A that I missed????

The best Arena style concert I've been to was Pink Floyd at Death Valley stadium in Clemson.

one of the best small venue bands I've ever seen (and I've seen them three times) is Dada.  I was at the show in Santa Ana where they recorded thair live can hear me whistling on the cd!  ;D

Other concerts I've been to and enjoyed:

Rolling Stones (Steel Wheels tour) w/ Living Colour
Elton John
Def Leppard (The Hysteria tour) with Europe opening
Cracker/Camper Van Beethoven
Canned Heat
Ozzy Osbourne
Dave Matthews Band

There's a bunch more, but I'm kinda flaking right now.

How'd it go with Philip? :o

Well, let's just say we have some pix forthcoming of Philip hanging out with some JD'ers, including the likes of Morgbug, jjks, JediMAC, and yes - Mr. Berry himself.  I would say that Philip wasn't overly thrilled after our pix with him to learn who we really were...  ;)

Please tell me that someone gave him a can of spam and took a picture of that!

I think the writers want us to have doubts on ehst exactly the baby is.  They said that all the people healed by being in the baby's presence got sick again, but the comatose girl led them to the baby, and it's quite obvious that the satanists want the girl stopped.

Who knows....too many questions at this point, but we're only two episodes in.

Are any of the other Pepsi-sponsored fast food chains going to have SW promotions this summer?  I remember Taco Hell having one for Episode I.

I doubt they'll do anything like this for Star Wars this year.

Maybe in a year or so when all the movie hype has died down and stores don't show as much interest as they are now.
