Hey, it's no secret that this line isn't the most popular Star Wars collectable out there.  I am curious as to what other collectors who aren't into them think of them.  Opinions?

Okay, would you tip in this situation... you order a pizza from a place that offers in 30 minutes or free.  The delivery guy takes 31 minutes.  When you point it out to him he looks like he's going to cry.  Oh man, this happened to me one time, my girlfriend at the time had the place on the phone when he got there, she gave him the phone and his face just dropped and he ran out of our apartment before we could give him anything.  Man I felt like such a tool, but it's their policy not mine.  I don't know, I now make it a point of not getting pizza from places with policies like that.

Oh and I don't eat at buffets. :-X

Oh TRU Times Square.  That's easy enough to find.  Is F.A.O. Schwartz still around.  Are there any really cool, comic/toy shops I should keep my eye out for?

whoohoo!  I just pulled a Veers... from my friendly neighborhood collectible store!!!

Went for a kubrick run at lunch today.  I didn't get a box of 12 because in this series i was only interested in the TIE pilot and X-wing luke, but when I got to the store they had a brand new box of 12 that hasn't been touched.  Thanks to all of you who posted the locations of the chases and regular figures, led me right to the death star trooper with the Veers inside.  I love this community~!

Pics to come tonight when I get off work.

You lucky SOB!  Unbelievable! Congratulations.

nobody does. I hope that the next set, Bounty Hunters will not be the same way.

Oh gawd, I hope so.

That totally kicks ass!!  I love it.

I too am not crazy enough to buy the Attakus one; as cool as it looks it would blow my budget for many years to come.

Why can't Hasbro do something even close to as cool as this?

They keep dangling the carrot of rereleasing the old Kenner Death Star but big deal I already have three of those.  I guess it's too much to ask for them to actually make something original. ???

Do we have a solar powered battery or something for our music player on this island?   Or else we would only get a few plays at the most and then that's it.  Cd's would be more useful for signaling planes and ships;D

Seriously though,

Urban Hymns - The Verve
Blonde on Blonde - Bob Dylan
Hot Rocks - The Rolling Stones
Alicia Keys - Songs in A Minor
Jackie Brown Soundtrack

Let's see. You've got John Ratzenberger coming to your work to do a job and you want to ambush him with signing a few pieces of plastic from a movie he was briefly in over 20 years ago.

I'm sure he'll love that, since he'll have all the time in the world to fulfill your fantasies. And won't you have a job to be doing somewhere at the company while he's there?

Why not just talk with him? You could choose to be cool and helpful to Mr. Ratzenberger instead of rabid. "Here, hold up this Creature Cantina Sucks sign... What's it mean? Uh, it's kind of an internet inside joke kind of thing... Oooh - Take a picture with me like we're friends..." Instead, ask him questions. He's had an interesting career outside of his role as Derlin.

John is the only person to voice a character in all 7 of Pixar Animation's feature films - as Hamm in Toy Story (1995), PT Flea in Bug's Life, A (1998), Hamm again in Toy Story 2 (1999), the Abominable Snowman in Monsters, Inc. (2001), School Fish in Finding Nemo (2003), the Underminer in The Incredibles (2004), and Mack in the upcoming Cars (2006).

Personally, I'd rather have you bring back a cool story about meeting John than a few signed figures and a photo of him holding up a sign.

Good luck.

I disagree.  Go with the sign idea.  When is Cliff Claven ever going to come to your work again?  Actors are attention hungry ego maniacs, he will love it.  Can't wait to see that sign.

Wow I was just at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem tonight and their was this comic doing a really drawn out bit about Dustin.  I couldn't believe it.  Nobody knew what the **** he was talking about, I swear I was the only one laughing. I didn't get his name he wasn't on long. This is his routine to the best of my recollection:

I'm glad to see dustin is getting ******* smoked in this absolutely pointless contest.  I'm kidding of course, I love dustin, he's so street and fresh, I just found his whole campaign way too obnoxious and in my ******* face for something I could not give a **** about.  Don't get me wrong, I don't mean any disrespect to him, I can appreciate he's trying really hard to win free crap and good for him, but I wish he and rs would just **** off already.  

And hey, this is something that I thought was inappropriate, I really didn't appreciate him sullying the good name of R2-D2 by making him his running mate, poor R2 is just trying to enjoy his retirement with his long time companion and he get's dragged into this?

Now, whoever the **** that ******* USCWannabe is, congratulations, good for you buddy enjoy your free ****, now please go **** yourself in the hyperspace forums and leave us free board slobs alone.

Sorry for the all the negativity but I really don't like having things constanly shoved down my throat.  I would have killed for Norton to have developed a Dustin blocker, I would have bought it.  At least he didn't resort to pop up adds, that could have made it even more irritating, an area he had no problem with all on his own.

Oh I see the hook coming for me, that's my time, you've been a great audience Apollo!! Peace. ;)

The last two regular waves have been Prequel stuff, which to me is the equivilant to a Power Ranger figure. 

Tru dat.

Seriously though, us poor Canadian slobs are still waiting around for those VOTC2 figs.  You lucky yankee bastards.
