Revenge of the Sith / Re: 500th commemorative figure... Vader?
« on: June 23, 2005, 01:38 PM »
I held one in my hand today! But alas, it belonged to the guy who new they were there and was waiting for them and grabbed them all. :-[

The annoying part was that Managment was considering making him give up his extras, but whimped out. The only saving grace is that they only had one case worth, and there's only three to a case.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: AFI's 100 Years...100 Movie Quotes
« on: June 22, 2005, 11:21 AM »
My wife was getting annoyed with me because half the time, as soon as the movie apeared on screen, I would guess the quote. However, at the end of of the "Love never means having to say you're sorry" clip with the audio bleed of Appocalypse Now, I said "I love the smell of nepalm in the morning" before the first AN image appeared. When they revealed the the quote, she called me a freak. Actually, she yelled it.

Vintage Kenner / Re: A-Wing Pilot Variant?

I'll admit I'm not the most informed when it comes to vintage variations, but I do try to keep up. This is new to me as well. Could it be hand painted?

Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS Pegwarmers?
« on: June 22, 2005, 11:04 AM »
A lot of the peg warming around here is due to stock shifting. As I mentioned in other threads, there's a couple of guys aroung here that are clearing out stock at Target and returning that stuff to other Targets. The one I ususlay hit at 8am has been the victom of two waves of wave4 collection 1 returns and is chocked with those. Oddly, the store being cleared out did get restocked as planned, but they quickly became filled with left over wave 5 stock and are now clogged with #35 Palpatines and #36 Grevious'.

Historically, I think England in genral produces better bands, so it's no wonder they have all the good bands. :P

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS Wookiee Helicopter with Wookiee
« on: June 21, 2005, 04:23 PM »
For those keeping score, from the partial case I found this morning, I think the break down is:

4 Wookie helicopters
1 Barc
1 Boga

Does anyone else think the Vader in this 3-pack looks a bit underscaled?

Hard to tell from in the box. I'll have to wait and see when i actually get one.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS Deluxe Clone 3-pack
« on: June 21, 2005, 04:17 PM »
I was able to pick up the Blue 3-pack today. Here's the good news, they are two per case.

Here's the break down of Wave 3 R2:

2 blue clone 3-packs
1 jet pack trooper
1 blue vulture droid
1 Vader on table
1 Jedi on Barc speeder

Almost a perfect case assortment, but 5 out of 6 isn't bad for hasbro.

I couldn't believe it when I heard it either.  Of all the bands and all the reunion shows, this is one I *never* would have thought to happen.  I have a feeling - and maybe this is way off base - that this one-time reunion might be a "test".  If they can work through their differences and get through this show without strangling each other, it stands to reason that they might be able to stick together for a reunion tour across the world.  One can only hope.  :)

JohnH, great to see my fellow prog head around these parts!

Yeah, I was pretty stunned when I heard the Pink Floyd reunion was happening. I was also suprised it wasn't breaking news on some of the radios stations I listen to. Wish I could see it.

ROTS is definately going to have a tough time from here on out. It will definately overtake Jurassic Park and could concievably pull out ahead of ROTK, but it will take weeks to do it. As for 400m, it's a craps shoot.
