Nice stuf Dale, Thanks.

The thing about Columbia that made me stop and think was is the fact that foam has been comming off durring evey lift off and that was the first time that it caused significant damage. It made realize that evey launch was a craps shoot, kind of a scary thought (beyond the million technical things that could go wrong.) I certainly hope they can figure it out, but perhapse this will push them toward a new launch vehicle.

Actually, the original foam they used on the tanks did not break off as much.  But NASA engineers decided to change the foam sometime in the 90's to make it more "environmentally friendly" That's when the orbiters were sustaining damage due to foam breaking off of the tank.

I started Summer of 78 when I got my first Star Wars figures.  Granted, I was 7 and they were my toys, but I think I still have the cardbacks from all my figures and that's not something I did with any of my other toys.  Granted, a bunch of them are missing the proofs of purchase so I could score Boba Fett, Bossk and the Emperor by mail.  ;D

*spoiler below*

I agree with y'all about Snape.  Although, the fact that he really is going back to the deatheaters is a twist that took us all by suprise.  My mom also read the book and we were discussing it last night and she was wondering if there was a way that Dumbledore actually staged his death.  I don't see how that's possible, but he now has a portrait in the Headmaster's office so he can still help the others, and Harry is now on the path to stopping Voldermort.

It is going to be a looong wait for the next book!

Queen Amidale in TPM addressing the Senate to save her planet Naboo?

Sorry Spudtrooper, you're wrong.

Remember King's Quest?  What a classic pc game.

I saw the bird-strike on the news....I wonder how many PETA protesters are protesting now?

I just finished a Master's course called Aricraft & Spacecraft design.  We have the technology to make an actual space plane, that when completed could make cheaper space missions and eventually build us up for a true spacestation and interplanetary/possibly interstellar missions.  The problem is politics.

I found the Anakin/Palpatine set today, so I think I have them all.  Are they going to make any more of these?

On a related subject, is anyone going to get all the Plush M&M figures?  Are these also going to be at regular retail or just online (like the swshop?)?

just getting crushed maybe.

I thought the death was pat sensationalism. They just put it in there to "PROVE" to the readers that "oh you don't think we'll kill someone?!  POW, there chewie's dead, huh what do you think about that!  scared for Han and Luke now!?  Welll, you should SHOULD BE!!"

Gratuitous and silly.

Kind of have to disagreew with you on this point Dafoo, because a lot of the books later on dealt with how Han dealt with the loss of his best friend and also his relationships with his family....especially Anakin.

Speaking of which...I was completely suprised when they killed him off!  :o

To bring the topic sort of back to point, I wonder how some of the old debates like "Carded vs. Loose" and "What color is Han's Hoth coat?" would play out here.

Sweet!  November 1st brings this game and ROTS on DVD.

Well, I liberated my Medicom Vader from the Post Office today and all I can say is...WOW!

Beth, I don't understand your gripe about the codpiece and belt being one piece....I haven't taken mine completely apart, but it looks like two separate pieces on mine.  I also slid them down because they were riding high on my vader when I got him out of the box, but had no problems.

My only gripe is the hands.  Not a huge deal, but why didn't they all come with the little posts inside them like the Luke figure?  Completely minor gripe, but it took me a while to get the one out of the right hand because it was kind of wedged in there.

I do have it standing next to my Marmit Fett, and the Medicom Vader does look a bit small comparatively, but does look cool next to the Medicom Luke.

Guess I'll need a Medicom Fett when they make one...or better yet, if Siudeshow's are more similar to the Medicom figures....I'll be in Heaven!

My Medicom Vader sort of arrived today.  It's currently sitting at the post office and due to work, I'll have to wait until Monday to Liberate him and set him up next to the Medicom Luke.  :(
